The dragon is important for Chinese people. We Chinese people call ourselves the “descendants (传人) of the dragon”. Therefore, people celebrate the Dragon Head Raising Day with many customs.
On the day in ancient times, people put ashes in the kitchen. This was to “lead the dragon into the house”. People believed that with the help of the dragon, they could have a good harvest(收成) in autumn.
Also, people eat special foods that day. The foods are usually named after dragons. For example, people eat “dragon whisker(细须)” noodles and dumplings called “dragon teeth”.
Today, many customs have faded away(消退). But one that has remained is the cutting of hair. It is said that a haircut during the first lunar month may bring bad luck to the uncles of the family—mainly mother's brothers. So many people have their hair cut on the Dragon Head Raising Day.

Passage 7(2017 陕西)
Have you ever thought about making a bicycle that you dream of? Some creative people have invented some special bicycles. Here are three of them.
Bambikes are produced in a company in Philippines. They are made of an unusual kind of bamboo and other materials like metal and a local plant. They are very strong. And they are a perfect combination(结合) of the greenest building material and common bicycles. By making bambikes, the company offers jobs to the local people. Besides, it provides money for some students in its community to pay for their study. To continue the production, the company plants more bamboo than it cuts.
The heaviest bicycle
A German cycling lover, Frank Dose, has recently made the world's heaviest bicycle with big old wheels and lots of other waste materials. He created it just because of a bet(打赌) he made with his friend. The bicycle weighed 1.08 tons. It broke the world record of its kind in weight. Frank said his bicycle was surprisingly easy to ride although it had a huge size and weighed a lot. He rode it in front of 5，000 people for over 100 meters to prove it.
Two brothers in France created a bike that looks strange to ride and twists in the middle. Riders can make tight turns(急转弯). The brothers say the bicycle is hard to ride so it can stop people from stealing it. In fact, it isn't as hard to control as you may think. It takes a day or two to get used to the crazy way of riding. It's amazing. So far, there have been 30 of the bicycle, but they are not for sale yet.
1. Frank built the world's heaviest bicycle with the materials that his friend bought for him.

On February 9th, 2013, Sarah Darling was walking along the street when she met a homeless man named Billy Ray Harris. She reached into her change purse, emptied out all the coins she had and gave them to the homeless man. Neither of them realized that this small generous act(举动) would change their lives.
Sarah didn't realize that she had given Billy not only all her change but also her diamond ring that she had put in her change purse earlier until the next morning.

You must have read or heard of the sad love story between Jia Baoyu and Lin Daiyu. But can you imagine the two singing opera in English instead of speaking poetic Chinese?
Jia and Lin are two characters from the classic Chinese novel A Dream of Red Mansions(《红楼梦》), written by Cao Xueqin(1715－1763). Now the book has been made into an English language opera. The opera was first performed last September in San Francisco, US. This month it came to Beijing, Changsha and Wuhan.
Many of the opera's creators have backgrounds(背景)in both Chinese and American cultures, including the director and playwrights. Their understanding of both cultures helped them to change a Chinese classic into a foreignlanguage opera.
The book, which covers the rise and fall of the Jia family, has 120 chapters and hundreds of characters. But opera writer David Henry Hwang cut down the number of characters to just seven. Hwang, a ChineseAmerican, focused on the love story between Jia and Lin and tried to write a heartbroken tragedy(悲剧) that everyone would understand.
The art director Timmy Yip, from Hong Kong, tried to help foreign people understand the characters using costumes(服装) and stage settings(布景). He compared Lin to water and gave her a light green costume. When Lin shows up on stage, there is usually water around her on the stage.
The creators consider it to be a meaningful job to introduce a Chinese classic to Western audiences. Hwang told China Daily he was happy to “have made a contribution to the land where my parents were born”．

Anyone who has experienced a cyclone(飓风) will tell you how scary it can be. High winds and lots of rain can destroy a city in less than an hour. A big cyclone, named cyclone Debbie, hit Australia's east coast at the end of March.
The wind was as fast as 236 km/h and destroyed houses, trees, cars and boats. Sea levels rose and flooded coastal towns. While rivers also flooded. Many cities near rivers went underwater.
Hundreds of thousands of people had to leave their homes and farms, at least 8 people died, reported Courier Mail. The cyclone lasted for about 3 days. But the flooding was still happening 2 weeks later. Some cities never recover from a cyclone, while it takes years to rebuild.
A tropical cyclone begins when a group of thunderstorms meet over warm, tropical waters. Lots of air and water is sucked into clouds from the ocean. Because the earth is rotating, the clouds start to spiral(螺旋式上升). That is why tropical cyclone has curved(使成弧形) shape when you see it on a map. For this reason, tropical cyclone can not form near Equator(赤道) because earth's rotation is not strong enough there. When the wind speed increases to 120 km/h, it changes from a tropical cyclone to a hurricane, typhoon or cyclone.
So what is the difference between a cyclone, a hurricane, a typhoon？The answer is actually quite simple.
All three are the same. We just use different names for these storms in different places. In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific Ocean around the US, the term hurricane is used. The same type of storm in the North Pacific Ocean near China is called typhoon. Cyclones occur in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean near Australia.

Most people think sheep are stupid, friendly and harmless animals. The sheep are good for two things, being eaten and producing wool. The truth is that sheep are far smarter than we know. They build up friendships and stick up for one another in fights.
A 2001 study done by Keith Kendrick, who is now at the University of Electronic Science and Technology in China, found that sheep can remember at least 50 personal faces for more than 2 years. That is longer than many people.
“Sheep showed clear signs of being good at telling the differences，” says Kendrick. The team also found that sheep can separate expressions and prefer a smile to a frown(皱眉).
At the time Kendrick told BBC News，“The sheep's brain is organized. They must have some kinds of reaction (反应) to what they see in the world.”
Sheep also have complex social structures(结构). Over twenty years ago, researchers from the University of California observed for three years and discovered that they set up friendships and looked out for one another in times of need. “They can form long term relationships... they help weaker friends and support each other in fights，” says the 1993 study. They say that sheep are able to experience many feelings, from fear to anger, and from sadness to happiness.

Music plays an important role in our daily life. But for some people, music is not fun at all. They have the illness that scientists call “amusia(失歌症)”. People with amusia are born without the ability to enjoy music. They often cannot tell the differences between two songs. As a result, songs sound like noise to them.
Life can be hard for people with amusia. In fact, most people cannot understand what it feels like—just going to a restaurant or a shopping centre can be uncomfortable or even painful. That is why many people with amusia have to stay away from places where there is music. However, this can result in social loneliness.“I used to hate parties，” says Elizabeth, a 70yearold woman who only recently discovered that she has amusia. By studying people like Elizabeth, scientists are finally learning how to identify(辨别) this unusual condition.
Scientists say that the brains of people with amusia are different from those that can enjoy music. The difference is complex(复杂的)，and it is not connected with poor hearing. People with amusia can understand other nonmusical sounds well. They also have no problems understanding common speeches.
Many people with amusia are happy when their condition is finally diagnosed(诊断). For years, Elizabeth has felt embarrassed about her music problem. Now she knows that she is not alone. That makes it easier for her to explain. “When people invite me to a concert, I just say, ‘No, thanks. I have amusia，'” says Elizabeth.

Passage 11 (2018原创)
The Chinese government has a policy called “Nationwide Reading”， a movement to develop better reading habits among the population.
Realizing the importance of reading in national strength, China has gradually raised “Nationwide Reading” as a national strategy．
There are still problems, however, such as a lower reading rate compared with the world's main countries, less public resources, and mixed quality of reading materials. A national survey showed that Chinese read 3.26 ebooks and 4.58 paper books on average in 2015, compared with an average of 16 books in Europe and the United States. The United States introduced the Reading Excellence Act in 1998 and the No Child Left Behind Act in 2002. The Republic of Korea and Japan have also introduced laws to call on reading.
Our country encourages schools, colleges and universities to open their libraries to the public, and calls on bookstores to offer reading space and organize reading for customers.
Reading is not just an important professional skill. It is also a way to enjoy informative(教育性的), creative, and inspiring works in literature that enrich our life experiences. Like any skill worth mastering, a reading habit requires time and dedication to develop. It is, however, a lifelong source of enjoyment and entertainment and a good hobby for anyone who wants to pick up a book.
1. What is “Nationwide Reading”？

According to a survey, many people think genes(基因) and intelligence have something to do with students' success or failure. But there aren't any researches to support this opinion. And in fact, it is not right at all. There is one thing that can finally decide students' success or failure. That is how they learn. A few students are clever and lucky. They find good ways for themselves to study every subject well. But others aren't so lucky like them. They don't find correct ways of their own and fail in the end.
To teachers, what is the best way to teach languages? Dr. Asher found a way called “Total Physical Response”. This was helpful to students. Studies in San Jose State University showed that if students moved their bodies when learning English, they were able to learn a lot more new words and grammar in a very short time. But if they sat still and didn't move, they could learn less. And after a year, the students who moved their bodies when learning remembered 80% or more things they learned. But others forgot more than 80%.
Now you may know how to learn English. Keep moving when you learn. So when you listen to a story or an article, do action as soon as you hear it. And you can imagine you are the person in the story or the article. By doing this, you can learn more English and you can remember it longer. The most useful is that you can use it more easily. Stop your old method. Try this one at once!

Babies born after 2017 may never need to take a driving lesson because of the development of selfdriving cars. Some scientists say that selfdriving or driverless cars(无人驾驶汽车) may hit the road within 15 years, and it is possible that driving may become unnecessary(不必要的), or more relaxing and enjoyable.
Companies like Google, Baidu, Apple and Alibaba are working on driverless cars. But, if the tests are successful, these electric selfdriving cars could be put into use very soon. This kind of cars may change the way we live in the future. All you have to do is typing in your address!
According to Baidu, the driverless technology has the following four advantages. Firstly, driverless cars are actually safer. In China, there are more than 500 deaths caused by accidents. With driverless cars, the number will decrease by 100 times. Secondly, driverless cars are more efficient(有效的) than manned cars. Thirdly, driverless cars follow the traffic rules. Therefore, traffic controlling will be easier. At last, the cost of transportation will be reduced as the labor cost becomes less.
There are many different technologies needed to make a successful selfdriving car. The most difficult technologies of all are environmental perception (感知), behavior prediction, planning control, HD mapping, and exact GPS.

Although we all want happiness and joy every day, sometimes we still feel blue. Most people can control this, but sometimes it can get worse and people fall into depression (抑郁).
This year, the WHO chose“depression” as the theme of World Health Day. This aims to raise people's awareness (意识) of it. According to its recent report, about 322 million people suffered depression in 2015. This is more than 4 percent of the world's population.
Depression is described as a mental disorder(精神疾病). It has several symptoms(症状) like sadness and loss of interest. In extreme cases, depression may lead to suicide (自杀)．
There are three groups of people that are more likely to develop depression, according to WHO. One is old people, while another is women who are pregnant (怀孕的) or have just given birth. And young people are also one of the three groups.
In China, depression among young people is on the rise, Zhu Zhuohong, a famous psychology professor told Xinhua. Competitions, especially in education, can cause a lot of pressure.
Luckily, efforts are being made to solve this problem. Now several social organizations in China are trying hard to help those with depression. WHO also held the “Depression: Let's talk” campaign this month, aiming to make sure that people with depression seek and get help.
