American and British people both speak E...

    American and British people both speak English of course. But sometimes it does not seem like the same language. In fact, there are some important differences between British English and American English.

1.Often, Americans don’t say each word separately. They say several words together. Americans may say “I dunno” instead of “I don’t know”. Or they may say “Whaddya say?” instead of “What did you say?” However, the British are more careful in their speech. They usually say all the words and keep them separate.

Sound is not the only difference between British English and American English. Words sometimes have different meanings too.2.Americans drive trucks, but in England people drive lorries.

3. In England, if you are going to telephone your friends, you “phone them up”. In America, you “give them a call”. There are also some differences in grammar. For example, Americans usually use the helping verb “do” when they ask a question. They say “Do you have a storybook?” But the British often leave out the helping verb. 4.

Most languages are like this. Languages change over time. When people live in separate places, the languages Change in different ways. This is what has happened to English. 5. Many people in Canada speak French but their French is very different from the French of France.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced the novel coronavirus (冠状病毒) outbreak a global public health emergency (突发事件) after the spread of the disease across the world. WHO made the decision in its third meeting about the coronavirus, after it decided not to take such a step in the first two meetings. It is considered to be a public health risk through the international spread of disease. It suggests a serious, sudden and unusual situation in which the world must act quickly. Since 2009, there have been a few global health emergencies, including the 2009 swine flu pandemic(猪流感) and the 2014 outbreak of ebola in West Africa.

The novel coronavirus has got attention because of its similarity to SARS which killed about 800 people across the world in 2002-2003. So far, the novel coronavirus does not seem to be as deadly as SARS, but there have been more cases. Its declaration could  cause trade and travel restrictions (限制). Those who have made holiday plans might have their plans influenced in some parts of the world. The WHO said its greatest worry was the potential (潜在性) for the virus to spread to counties with weaker health systems, who might not be able to deal with it. “We are all in this together and we can only stop it together,” said the WHO’s Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

When the virus hit China, many companies that make cars, smartphones and clothes started making face masks, too. Daddy Baby is a baby care company. It can make 700,000 masks each day. “We believe each mask we produce may save one more person,” said Lin Yangting. He is a manager at the company. When fighting the novel coronavirus, time is important. To save more lives, thousands of people work day and night. They build hospitals quickly, as well as make and transport medical things at a high speed. The surprising speed is a result of China’s unique system (独特的角度). With the Chinese speed, China has saved many patients.

    If you are home alone, and somebody comes to the door, you will probably shout out “I got it” so that it seems like someone else is there with you and you are not alone at home, this way you can be safe. Then how can we stay safe in our daily lives? Here are some tips:

1. It’s a good idea to give your apartment a safety check—before you even move in. Complete this safety check list. Can you see who’s at the door without opening it? Are your doors made of metal? Have all your doors been rekeyed since you moved in?

2.Become BFFs (best friends forever) with your neighbors. If you’re shy, then you’d probably prefer anything else to chatting with neighbors, But make an effort to be friendly, if only for safety’s sake (面子) . In one way or another, your neighbors may be your best wealth in times of trouble and they’ll be more willing to lend a hand to a friend than they are to help out a stranger.

3.Always throw parties. Burglars (窃贼) are less likely to target busy homes. So yes, this can be your excuse to throw a party. Having people over can make your home seem like there are more people living in it. It’ll also show would-be burglars that a lot of friends have got your back.

4.Be smart about spare keys. Burglars know exactly where to check for spare keys. So don’t think you’re being clever by hiding them in the mailbox, or under a carpet. Instead, you’re better off leaving them to a friend or trusted neighbor.


1.By shouting out “I got it” you want to show that you are alone.

2.You needn’t give your apartment a safety check before moving in.

3.You should try your best to be friends with your neighbors.

4.Throwing parties will bring burglars to your home.

5.Don’t hide your spare keys in the mailbox.
