3 Answer these questions.
1. Why did Yuan Longping want to increase the rice output when he was young? Because at that time, hunger was a serious problem in many parts of the countryside. He saw many people suffered from hunger when he was young.

2. Is Dr Yuan more of a scientist or more of a farmer? Do you think he is a businessman? Give your reasons. I think he is more of a scientist, although he works in the fields like a farmer., his main purpose is not to make a profit for himself but to study agriculture and use that knowledge to improve farming for farmers everywhere. I do not think he is a businessman, because his goal is not to make money.

3. How would you describe Dr Yuan’s personality? Use three or four adjectives. Dr Yuan is a simple, academic man

who is more interested in helping others
than being famous.

4. What do you think is the main reason for Dr Yuan’s success?
I think Dr Yuan was successful because he kept working and did not give up. He also grew up in a poor family, so he was very motivated to succeed and help other farmers around China.

5. Dr Yuan thinks that a person with too much money has more rather than fewer troubles. Do you agree or disagree? Why? I mostly agree. I think being rich can cause a lot of problems, but it really depends on the life and attitude of the person who is rich. People who are rich certainly have different problems from people who are not.

Comprehending
2 Paraphrase these sentences. 1. As a young man, he saw the great need for increasing the rice output. Even when he was a young man, he knew how important it was to produce bigger rice crops.

2. At that time, hunger was a disturbing problem in many parts of the countryside. During his early years, much of the countryside was troubled by hunger. 3. Using his hybrid rice, farmers are producing harvests twice as large as before. As they use his hybrid rice, farmers are producing twice as much rice as before.

4. Spending money on himself or leading a comfortable life also means very little to him. He is not interested in buying things for himself or in having a comfortable life. 5. Just dreaming for things, however, costs nothing. It does not cost anything to dream for something.

How to solve hunger? preventing the pests from eating our crops improving the quality of the soil developing the technology to… making good use of the waste land

inventing a new kind of food…

Discuss in groups of four. What advantages and disadvantages do you see in Yuan Longping’s life? Would you like to have a life like his? Why or why not?

Have you ever grown any plants?
If so, what did you do to grow them?

If not, what kind of
plant would you like to grow? How will you grow it?
