If you have no special plans for your holidays why not spend your time helping others?

Don’t listen to people who say the young people today often think only of themselves. It’s not true at all. More and more people in the USA volunteer(志愿) to spend their school holidays working for others. And they don’t do it for money. Here are some of their stories.

I’m going to help the Forest Centre build new hiking paths in the mountains. It’s going to be terrific—I’ll spend the whole summer living in the tent and breathing the clean mountain air. I’m going to sleep under the stars. It’ll be a nice sport and I’ll be able to do something good at the same time.

Jason Moore18

This summer I’m going to volunteer with Special House Program. They build good low-cost houses and sell them to families that are not very rich. They’ll teach me what to do so I’ll help people and also have a chance to learn how to build houses.

Trish Anderson 16

I’m going to teach kids who have trouble reading. I’ll work for a program called Reading For Life. Every day I’m going to help kids choose and read books that they like. I want to be a teacher and I love children and reading so this is going to be a great experience for me.

The date was like any other day in his life. After school David walked past the shop on the street corner. He stopped to look at the front row of shoes, and he felt sorry for himself. He really wanted to have a new pair for his birthday.

      He sadly walked away and thought of how to tell his mother. He knew she would give him anything if she could. But he also knew very well she had little money. He decided not to go home at once, as he looked worried and he didn’t want to make his mother worry about it. So he went to the park and there he sat on the grass. Then he saw a girl in a wheel chair. He found that the girl moved the wheels with her hands. David looked at her carefully and was surprised to see that the girl had no feet.

Many people like to travel by plane, but I don’t like it because the airport(机场) is usually far from the city. You have to get there early and wait for hours for the plane to take off which is often late. You can’t open the windows. You can’t choose the food. Planes are fast, but it still takes hours to get out of the airport and into the city.

I like travelling by train. I think trains are safe. Railway stations are usually good in cities. When you are late for a train, you can catch another one. You can walk around in the train and open the windows. You can see many interesting things on your way, though it takes a little more time.

I also like cars. You can start your journey whenever you want to, and you don’t need to get to a railway station or a bus stop. Also you can carry many things with you in a car. But sometimes there are too many cars on the road.

1.Why do many people like to travel by plane?

A. Because it is fast.

B. Because it is safe.

C. Because you can walk around in the plane.

D. Because it is cheap.

2.Which is not the good thing about the train?

A. It is safe.    B. It takes a little more time.

C. You can open the window.    D. You can walk around in the train.

3.If you want to take a lot of things with you, what will you take?

A. A bus.    B. A car.    C. A train.    D. A bike.

B. You can start your journey when you want to.

C. There are too many cars on the road.

D. You needn’t go to a bus stop.
