1.Community serviceis an important component of education here at our university. We encourage all students to volunteer for at least one community activity before they graduate. A new community program called“One On One”helps elementary students who’ve fallen behind. Your education majors might be especially interested in it because it offers the opportunity to do some teaching, that is, tutoring in math and English. You’d have to volunteer two hours a week for one semester. You can choose to help a child with math, English, or both. Half -hour lessons are fine, so you could do a half hour of each subject two days a week. Professor Dodge will act as a mentor to the tutors—he’ll be available to help you with lesson plans or to offer suggest ions for activities. He has office hours every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. You can sign up for the program with him and begin the tutoring next week. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this community service,and you’ll gain valuable experience at the same time. It looks good on your resume, too, showing that you’ve had experience with children and that you care about your community. If you’d like to sign up, or if you have any questions, stop by Professor Dodge’s office this week. (220 words)
2.There arethree kinds of goals: short-term, medium -range and long -term goals. Short-term goals are those that usually deal with current activities, which we can apply on a daily basis. Such goals can be achieved in a week or less, or two weeks, or possibly, months. It should be remembered that just as a building is no stronger than its foundation, long -term goals cannot amount to very much without the achievement of solid short -term goals. Upon completing our short -term goals, we should date the occasion and then add new short -term goals that will build on those that have been completed. The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short -term goals. They might deal with just one term of school or the entire school year, or they could even extend for several years. Any time you move a step at a time, you should never allow yourself to become discouraged or overwhelmed. As you complete each step, you will enforce the belief in your ability to grow and succeed. And as your list of completion dates grow, your motivation and desire will increase. Long-term goals may be related to our dreams of the future. They might cover five years or more. Life is not a static thing. We should never allow a long -term goal to limit us or our course of action.(221 words)
1.It’s very interesting to study names of different countries. Chinese names are different from foreign names. Once an English lady came to ## me. When I was introduced to her, she said, “Glad to meet you, Miss Ping.” Then she gave me her name card with three words on it: “Betty J.Black”. So I said, “Thank you, Miss Betty.” We looked at each other and laughed heartily. Later I found that the English people ## their family names last and the given names first, while their middles are not used very much. I explained to her that the Chinese family name comes first, the given names last, so she ## never call me Miss Ping. She asked if we Chinese had a middle name. I told her we didn’t. But people may often find three words on a Chinese name card. In this case the family name still comes first and the other words after it ## a two－word given name. It is quite usual in China. My sister is Li Xiaofang. She has two words in her given name instead of just one ## mine．
2.Two women on a train were arguing. At last one of them called the conductor. She said, "If the window is open, I will ## cold. And I'll probably."

That will kill one." he said. "## shut it. That will kill the other. Then we can have peace."
