I was really nervous about English class this year because I was an eleventh grader taking a twelfth grade class．I knew that I wouldn’t know anyone in the class，and that scared me a little．But since I didn’t know anyone，I had the chance to do something I love almost as much as socializing—people watching．
One of the most interesting girls in the class sat directly behind me．She was always laughing and talking，and she just seemed so happy．She was friendly，too—she was one of the very few people in the class who made any attempt to acknowledge me．
At the end of the year，we were assigned a big project．It was a very open-ended project，where the instructions were basically to read something，then read or watch something else that related to it，and then come up with a class presentation based on what you learned．
The presentations were spread out over the last month of schoo1．The girl behind me presented on one of the very last days．She got up in front of the class，and told how she had read about eating disorders，because she herself had struggled with one．Since it would have been too difficult for her to talk to us about it directly，she and a friend(who had also suffered from an eating disorder)had made a movie，where they interviewed each other about their eating disorders，how they had felt while they were struggling with them，and how they had overcome them．By the end of the presentation，almost everyone was in tears．
The most shocking thing about the whole presentation was how surprising it was．I never expected that she would have had a problem like that．She always seemed so happy and confident；it was hard to picture her counting calories because she thought she wasn’t good enough．
You also never know what kind of impact you have had on people’s lives．The courage of the girl behind me to talk about something so personal，and her strength to ask for help and overcome her problems have inspired me．

The unusual whistle language used as a means of communication by villagers in the remote and mountainous northern Turkey has been added to the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage．
The language is a highly developed high—pitch system of whistling to communicate in rugged(崎岖的)areas where people mostly cannot see each other．It can allow people to communicate across great distances，up to 5 kilometers．Compared with other similar whistle languages in Spain’s Canary Islands，in Mexico，or in Greek villages，it has a higher tone and larger vocabulary．
This unusual form of communication，which dates some 500 years ago，to the Ottoman Empire was born from sheer necessity and widespread across the Black Sea regions．
But 50 years ago，it suffered the impact of the progression of technology and nowadays the rapid growth of cellular mobile systems has put this cultural heritage under serious threat．
For centuries，the language has been passed on from grandparent to parent，from parent to child Now，though，many of its most proficient speakers who use their tongue，teeth and fingers are aging all becoming physically weak．Young people are no longer interested in learning the language or in finding ways to update its vocabulary with new words，and in a few generations it may be gone for good．
“Our bird language is very convenient and efficient to communicate across the valleys．It has many benefits over yelling，which is bad for our throats．”said Avni Kocek，head of the bird village adding that despite setbacks because of technology，“bird language is still used by many of us．Whistle language is transmitted from our elders to us and we have the duty to transmit it to our children. We are making efforts to keep our culture alive through the annual Bird Language Festival．”
Besides，the bird language has been required to be taught at primary schools since 2014 by district authorities in order to instill the practice in younger generations．
28．What is the bird language’s advantage over other similar whistle languages?
A．It is used as a means of communication．
B．It is older and has a larger number of users．
C．It can send more messages to farther places．
D．It is a completely different system of whistling．
29．What’s the biggest threat to the bird language?
A．Other whistle languages are more effectively protected．
B．The necessity to use it in everyday life is disappearing．
C．Many of its most proficient speakers are growing old．
D．Young people find it too difficult to learn well enough．
30．What’s the most effective measure so far taken to protect the bird language?
A．It has become a subject at primary schools．
B．Bird Language Festival is celebrated every month．
C．Cellular mobile systems are not allowed in the area．
D．All parents are required to transmit it to their children．
31．Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A．Preserving the Endangered Bird language
B．The Story of a Bird Language Speaker
C．Celebrating the Bird Language Festival

The term“forensic linguistics，”in its broadest sense，covers all areas of study where language and law intersect(交集)．A famous example of its application is the case of Chris Coleman，who was suspected of killing his family in 2009．Robert Leonard，the head of the forensic linguistics program at Hofstra University，presented some important linguistic evidence in the trial against Coleman．Relying heavily on word choice and spelling，Leonard suggested that the same person had written the threatening e-mails and sprayed the graffiti(涂鸦)，and that those samples bore similarities to Cole—man’s writing style．Coleman was later found guilty of the murder．
Robert Leonard was not the first one who used linguistic evidence in criminal investigation．The field of forensic linguistics was brought to attention by his colleague James Fitzgerald in 1996 with his work in the case of the Unabomber，who had sent a series of letter bombs to college professors over several years，causing many deaths．Working for the FBI，Fitzgerald urged the publication of the Un-abomber’s letter—a lengthy declaration of the criminal’s philosophy．
After the letter was published，many people called the FBI to say they recognized the writing style．By analyzing sentence structure，word choice，and other linguistic patterns，Fitzgerald narrowed dram the range of possible authors and finally linked the letter to the writings of Ted Kaczynski，a former mathematician．For instance，Kaczynski tended to use long parallel phrases，which were frequently found in the bomber’s letter．Both Kaczynski and the bomber also showed a preference for dozens of unusual words，such as“chimerical”and“anomic．”The bomber’s use of the terms“broad”for women and“negro”for African Americans also enabled Fitzgerald to roughly calculate the suspect’s age．The linguistic evidence was strong enough for the judge to search Kaczynski’s isolated cabin in Montana；what was found there put him in prison for life．
On some level，finding hidden meanings from linguistic evidence is what we all do intuitively(凭直觉地)in our daily language interaction．This is exactly the same work forensic professionals do．As one forensic-linguistics firm，Testipro，puts it in its online promotional ad，the field can be regarded as the basis of the entire legal system．”

The ability to stay positive is one of the most important skills for us．Why is this? The reason is that we will spend most of our lives setting and trying to achieve goals．Everyone has dreams．Everyone wants to know deep down inside that they were put here to do something great． 36 The second you set a goal，obstacles will begin to appear to stand in your way．Most people let these challenges rob them from the life they really want．
If you want to achieve greatness，if you want to experience the best life possible，then be prepared to get knocked down over and over． 37 This explains why there are so many people who have stopped trying to reach their dreams．
So how do you remain positive regardless of what type of challenge you are facing? It all comes down to how you choose to respond to any situation as well as what you decide to focus on．No matter how bad your situation is，you can always find something good in it． 38
If you keep focusing on how bad you have it，how are things supposed to get any better? 39 Of course it is．If this is true，why even bother thinking positively? That is because if you do，you have a chance to make things better．If you don’t，things will usually get a lot worse．
Realize that challenges are a part of life． 40 It’s what makes reaching a goal worth it．If you were able to get everything you wanted without even trying，the victory wouldn’t taste as sweet．
A．Everyone will have to go through them．
B．Staying positive can be beneficial in many ways．
C．Staying positive during situations like this is not easy．
D．You can do things like reading positive books or listening to positive songs．
E．Is it possible to be positive and still have your circumstances get even worse?
F．However，the problem is that life is tough．
G．So what you can do is start focusing on what is good．

Around three in five people in the UK will find 61 necessary to care for all elderly or a disabled loved one at some point．This can be made much 62 (easy)by bearing in mind a few simple principles and pieces of advice．
