A Your gestures and how you hold yourself during a presentation convey as much as words might. You should face the audience rather than turn your back to them. Here are some more tips. Don’t gaze down. N ever look away from your audience. Never lose eye contact with those who have come to hear you speak. Eye contact helps you connect with people and win their trust.

Look at an item you are discussing to gather your thoughts, turn to look at the audience, and then start speaking. Don’t roll your eyes. You don’t want to distract your audience with visual effects like rolling your eyes. This is especially true when you’re responding to questions, or comments, and you don’t want to appear im patient. Don’t chortle（ 咯咯笑）. “Nobody wants to see a clown perform ing unless,
o f course, you’re at the circus,” says Rosenthal. Don’t haw ( 支吾 ）? Do your best to avoid “filler” words. Keep the “um “you know” and “like” out of your speech. Don’t look messy.

One day a mime is visiting the zoo and attem pts to earn some money as a street perform er. As soon as he starts to draw a crowd, a zookeeper drags him into his office. The zookeeper explains that the zoo’s most popular attraction, a gorilla(大猩猩 ），has died suddenly and the keeper fears that attendance ) at the zoo w ill fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla. The mime accepts. The next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage before the crowd com es. He soon discovers he can sleep all he wants, play and make fiin of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime—the job he likes but loses. However, with days going by, he begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his. Not wanting to lose the attention o f his audience, he clim bs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition ( 隔墙） ，and dangles( 悬挂) from the top to the lion’s cage. The lion gets angry at this. The scene is a fuel to the crowd. At the end o f the day he is given a rise for being such a good attraction— w ell, this continues for some tim e. The crowds grow larger, and the mime’s pay keeps going up. Then one day when he is dangling over the lion he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. He starts scream ing, “Help m e,” but the lion is quick. The mime soon finds him self flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says, “Shut up you fool!

If people are around you and you can’t work with constant chatter, go into another room. If an interesting movie is on TV, turn it off. If your dog won’t quit barking, lock it outside. This is a pretty obvious way to stay focused. 67. One o f the best things you can do is to find a period of the day when you can stay focused. For exam ple, if you’re a stay-at-hom e mum who works on the com puter, w ait until you send the kids to school starting work. If you’re a student and you need to study for a big test tomorrow, w ait until your sister goes to work or your little brother goes to preschool, etc. 68. _____‘ ， Get all those best annoying physical needs out of the way first. Not only is this good for you to stay focused, but I learned in health class that this is a way for you to stay healthy in general. Don’t w ait to get hungry; stuff yourself with a sandwich before you head off to work or study. 69. _______ If you have a lot of work, you can break it down into sm aller and more m anageable tasks. Taking a break after each small task is finished is a great choice. Taking a break after an hour of hard work is reasonable. However, it is not okay if you take a break every fifteen minutes. Give yourself a break schedule and stick to it. Be sure to get a good night’s rest. If you’re at work with your head dropping, you definitely won’t be able to work effectively. M oreover, a documentary about sleeping and dream ing explained that when students study right before they go to bed, the inform ation they have ju st learned w ill be retained in their brains when they sleep. This will make the individual more focused and perform better the next day. Proofreading. I can’t swim because I have a strong fear of water. Look back at my childhood experience, I think that three reason might explain the fear. The first reason is thatI am not allow ed to going near the w ater when I was a child, for my mother had an unreasonable fear o f it. So, I was taught see the water as something danger. Second, my eyes became bad ones when I was five. If I took off away my glasses in the w ater, I couldn’t see som ething, and this increased my fear. The worst partof my experience is that as a child I often saw a neighbour drowned. Since then I have been more frightening. VI. Guided writing.

One possible version: We middle school students have had many tests or exams and have both achieved success and suffered from failure, but different students take different attitudes towards failure. Some fall in low'spirits when they don’t do well in exams, losing heart and no longer studying as hard as before. However, most students take an active attitude. By encouraging themselves to be self-confident, they find out and analyze the causes so that they will no longer make similar mistakes. In my opinion, failure is the mother of success. It can teach us a lot in the process of reaching our goals. Only by tasting failure can we better enjoy tide finit of success. Listening materials: Text 1 M: How did you get home?

But my aunt is a little older and not really into using the computer. W: But surely she would want to save a little money. You said she has kids. They must have a computer in the house. You could get one of her kids to teach her how to use the Internet. M: Yeah, I guess I never really thought about it. I kind of like hearing the sound of her
voice. It feels a little closer and more personal. W: Yeah, I understand. I like hearing my parents’ voices too, but I don’t feel like I need to hear them every time we talk. M: Hmm. Maybe I will get her kids to help. It’s a good idea. Text 8 M: All the food for the restaurant is prepared and cooked in this kitchen. You see that tall man? That’s John. He bakes pies, biscuits, cakes, fresh bread, and rolls daily. And he also prepares all the hot desserts. W: How long has he worked here? M: Three years. W: Where are the ovens? M: They are over there behind the preparation area. The man who's smiling and nodding at you is Tom, the assistant chef. He is very busy right now. He prepares all the side orders, hot soups, and hot starters. This is where I work. I do the main courses—beef and fish. This is your station~you’ll work with me. You’ll help with the sauces for the food, and you’ll also help the assistant chef with the salads. And these are the knives— you’ll need to sharpen them daily.
