>Mr. Briggs got a job with an insurance company(保险公司) after he left school and went around visiting people in their homes to sell them life insurance. One day, after he had been working for the company for about a year, the insurance manager sent for him and said, ―Mr. Briggs, I have been looking at your record as a salesman with our company, and there is one thing that surprises me about it. Why have you been selling insurance only to people over 95 years old, and why have you been giving them such generous conditions? You’ll ruin our company if you go on like that. ‖ ―Oh, no, sir,‖ answered Mr. Briggs at once, ―Before I started work, I looked at the figures(数字) for deaths in this country during the past ten years, and I can tell you that few people die at the age of 95. ‖ 21.

Everywhere there are plenty of pubs, in which people play darts, talk and drink, usually while standing up. Every pub has its names, its sign and its regulars, its customers who turn up night after night. A few old pubs have real character but many are dull and ugly. It seems that the
English think it rather indecent （不象样的） for people to drink alcoholic drinks in any place where they can be seen from outside. So pubs usually not only have no tables outside, but are so built that it is impossible for people outside to see in, or for those who are inside to see out. There are exceptions to this, but not many. Pubs are meeting places for working men after the evening meal. With pint glasses filled with beer—in Scotland the national drink is whisky –they argue about football, the races, cars…The traditional pub was a place for the men only. But things have changed, and more and more pubs are now places where men and women sit at tables, and they often provide good lunches. Most of them have a public bar, where drinks are slightly cheaper, and a saloon bar, which middle—class people usually prefer because it is more comfortable and less crowded. 25. This passage mainly tells us about _____. A. drinking habits of the English. C. what pubs are like in the UK. A. rules in the pub. C. people who have real characters. A. whisky B. meals B. poor conditions in pubs. D. why pubs are special for men. B. people who often go to the same pub. D. dull and ugly pubs. C. surroundings. D. atmosphere

C. which have a public bar and salon bar and provide lunch and dinner. D. which are mainly popular with high-class people.
I live with my grandmother in a Beijing yard house. One day last year, I was surprised to see a big foreigner coming out of the house next door to ours. He was very tall with short brown hair and a pair of glasses. The first time I saw him, I was too shy to speak to him. ―My English is too bad!‖ I thought. My grandmother told me that he had just moved into our yard. ―I don’t like it!‖ she said, ―Foreigners aren’t like us. Maybe he’ll play loud music and parties every night!
