How do you learn best?
This week we asked students at New Star High School about the best ways to learn more English. Many said they learnt by using English. Some students had more specific suggestions. Lillian Li, for example, said the best way to learn new words was by reading English magazines. She said that memorizing the words of pop songs also helped a little. When we asked about studying grammar, she said, “I never study grammar. It’s too boring.” specific adj. 明确的;详细而精确的 memorize(memorizing) v. 记忆;背诵 grammar n.语法;语法规则
Wei Ming feels differently. He’s been learning English for six years and really loves it. He thinks studying grammar is a great way to learn a language. He also thinks that watching English movies isn’t a bad way because he can watch the actors say the words. Sometimes, however, he finds watching movies frustrating because the people speak too quickly. differently adv.不同地;有区别地 frustrate v.使失望;使沮丧;使厌烦
frustrating adj.令人沮丧的;令人失望的 quickly adv.快地;迅速地
Liu Chang said that joining the English club at school was the best way to improve her English. Students get lots of practice and they also have fun. She added that having conversations with friends was not helpful at all. “We get excited about something and then end up speaking in Chinese,” she said.
not at all 根本(不); 全然(不) add v.又说;继续说
get excited about end up结束;告终 对…感到兴奋
1. ask sb. about sth. 问某人某件事情 about 后面加名词或动名词。 e.g. Ask students about the best way of learning. 问学生们最好的学习方法。 ask sb. to do sth. 要求某人做某事，请某人 做某事，to后面加动词原形。
e.g. He asked his mother to buy him a new bicycle. 他请求母亲给他买一辆新自行车。 2. Many said they learnt by using English. 许多学生说他们通过使用英语来学 习英语。
many 在这里是代词，而不是形容 词，意为many students. e.g. We can put away many of these plates. We don’t need this many. 我们可以把许多盘子收起来，用 不着这么多。 3. frustrating a. 令人灰心的，令人沮 丧的。 （修饰物，事件）
e.g. Watching movies to learn English is frustrating because the people speak too quickly. 通过看电影来学英语是让人灰心 的, 因为剧中人物说话太快了。 frustrated a.灰心的, 沮丧的(修饰人）
e.g. I felt frustrated at that time. 那时我觉得很沮丧。 类似的还有：
令人感兴趣的 boring disappointing 令人失望的 excited interesting interested disappointed 感兴趣的 失望的
无聊的 兴奋的 exciting 令人兴奋的 bored 感到无聊的
5. end up doing sth. 终止做某事, 结 束做某事, 后面加动名词短语, 相当于 finish doing sth., 表示结束做某事,事 情已完成。 e.g. When we practice speaking English, we often end up speaking in Chinese.
但要注意与stop doing sth. 的区 别: stop doing sth.指停止做某事，有可 能是暂时的，不久还会继续下去。 e.g. We had to stop singing because somebody knocked at the door. 另外，end up with… 以…而告终， 后面加名词或动名词。
e.g. The party ended up with her singing. 晚会以她的歌唱而告终。 6. 在本单元中，出现了大量的动名词。 我们有必要了解动名词的结构和用法。 动名词即动词的-ing形式，相当于名 词。在句子中可做主语, 宾语, 表语等。
1). I think that doing lots of
listening practice is one of the
secrets of learning. doing lots of listening practice 为动名词短语，做从句中的主语。 listening做定语, 修饰 practice.
2）I am enjoying learning English. 动名词短语做宾语。 3）Seeing is believing. 眼见为实。 （seeing做主语，believing做表语）

Dear Li Lei, I know it isn’t easy to learn English well, but I have some ideas that may help. You said you couldn’t understand people who talked fast. Well, you can try to listen for the most important words, not every word. You can also do lots of
listening practice. I think it’s one of the secrets of becoming a good language learner. Another thing that I think important is English grammar. In order to learn it well, you have to take a lot of grammar notes in every class. You can write English sentences using the grammar you
are learning. You can also read more English books. Reading is as important as listening for us to learn English well. If you do so, I believe that you can learn English very well later on. Yours, Meimei

How do we deal with our problems?
what’s his name? When was he born?
Where is he from? What’s the matter with him?
It’s not a problem – it’s a challenge. Enjoy facing it.
Who is this? It is Stephen Hawking – a great scientist.
What’s wrong with him?
He can’t walk or even speak.
Oh! It is a big problem to him.
Answer these questions: 1.Does everyone have their problems? Yes, they do. 2.How do we deal with our problems? By learning to forget, by regarding problems as challenges, by thinking of something worse.
3.How does Stephen Hawking deal with his problems?
He regards his many physical problems as unimportant.
List the ways of dealing with problems mentioned in it. 1. By learning to forget:
My friend and I often quarreled about some maths problems, and sometimes both of us decided not to talk to each other any more. But we will be friend again after a day
or two. Both of us agree that we should learn to forget the unhappy moment. 2. By regarding problems as challenges: When I was in the primary school, my maths was very poor. Whenever I met a difficult problem, I would ask my mother or my
a middle school student, I decide to change my way of studying maths. I will try all my best to learn it well by changing problems into challenges. 3. By thinking of something worse: You know, I’m a little fat and not very tall. Once in a PE class, we were
asked to do high jump. I was very afraid to do that. After several times’ efforts, I felt disappointed. But later, I found some others couldn’t finish the task, either. It encouraged me a lot and I finished my task eventually.
