When the Japanese ask you "Would you like some coffee?" think twice before you answer. In Japan, it is quite popular to have a "coffee bath."

Well, the Japanese don't do it for fun. They believe it helps cu,re diseases. Who knows? Maybe it's true. But in spite of what they say, I'll just take my coffee in a cup, thank you.

Westerners find eating soup this way most unpleasant.

How did this ancient Chinese tradition make its way across the seas? The answer is quite simple. Chinese businessmen have been building high rises in America. They deem it necessary to rely on feng shui experts, just as they would at home. More and more wealthy Americans are beginning to believe in geomancy.

33. A Deadly Current  p.213
 
It is a pity that every summer a few people drown at the beach. In some cases, these people were good swimmers. So how did it happen? Riptide!
Riptide is a strong underwater current. It moves quickly away from shore and out to sea. It appears suddenly and pulls its victim under and far off shore. Therefore, people should make it a rule never to swim too far out from the beach.
If you find yourself in a riptide, don't panic. And by no means should you try to go against the tide and swim back to shore. You'll tire yourself out and probably drown. Instead, swim parallel to the beach. A riptide is very narrow. So just a few strokes in the right direction and you'll be out of danger.

35. A Sense of Security  p.227
 
    Some people take the view that sometimes in life we have to take chances in order to make progress. I admire such people. It certainly takes courage to take risks. Maybe it's due to my upbringing, but I am the type who likes to play it safe.
    People like me believe in the saying, " A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Conservative as it may be, it keeps me out of trouble. I must confess, however, that such a lifestyle may, at times, be boring. Admittedly, my life is not half as colorful or exciting as other people's, but at least it gives me a sense of security.

    When you go abroad, what's the thing you need most? Money, of course! You'll need to go to the bank to buy some traveler's checks. Then when you arrive at your destination, you'll have to go to a bank to cash the checks. Every bank has a foreign exchange department. However, you'll have to speak with the teller in English because he or she will probably not understand Chinese.
    You should, therefore, brush up on some of the words and phrases that are commonly used when changing money at a bank. For example, you might want to know what(名从) the day's exchange rate is, or if(=whether) there are any handling charges, etc. worried? Don't be.

41. Getting a Tan  p.271
    
    Both my brother and I are outgoing people. He as well as I likes being in the sun. It goes without saying, therefore, that we spend a lot of our free time at the beach. We go there to relax as well as to keep fit. To be frank, though, he no less than I enjoys looking at the beautiful "scenery" around the beach.
    However, if you are anything(强调) like us, we have a piece of advice for you. Don't forget to rub a good amount of sunscreen lotion all over your body. Not only does it protect you from getting skin cancer, but it also helps to keep you nicely tanned(过分做a.). Both my brother and I forgot to do that and now we look like Afro-Americans rather than Chinese.

    Because Americans like things (to do) done immediately, they often order their food quickly at fast-food restaurants. They say, "A burger, fries and a coke!" though it's not polite, it's efficient. So when you are in the States, try to order (in) this way. After all, in America do as the Americans do.

49. Stop Snoring!  P.329
 
    Millions of families have trouble falling asleep. Do you know why? There's someone in the family who has a snoring problem. The problem can be quite serious. In some cases, couples have to sleep in separate bedrooms. And in others, kids can never study or even watch TV once Dad hits the sack.
    So how can we avoid being a snoring nuisance? One way is to avoid eating a big meal before going to bed. Drinking alcohol near bedtime is something, which also causes snoring. Changing the position in which the snorer sleeps also helps. Another alternative is to wear ear plugs. But if all these ideas fail, you have only one choice: Wake the snorer up. Tell him it's his turn to watch you sleep.

    Today, more people than ever before are speaking to each other through satellite television, cellular telephones and computers. This means that people from different parts of the world need to be able to communicate in the same language. That language happens to be English.
    Because of this, experts have predicted that more than half of the world's 6,000 languages may die out in the next century. Already almost all Californian Native American languages are in danger of extinction. They are being swallowed up by English and other language.

    Many people seek fame and wealth. Gul Muhammed sought neither. However, through fate he is famous. He is so short that he is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the shortest man in the world. He measures only 57 centimeters. Though he has fame, he is not rich. In fact, he's too poor to pay his own medical bills.
    Recently, when Gul became so ill that he had to be brought to the hospital, he didn't have enough money for the medicine. What a pitiful man he is!

69. Mean What You Say  p.476  (注意句子结构)
 
    Some people say that(名从,可省) promises are made to be broken. That certainly seems to be true in this cutthroat society that we live in. But if you break your promise, you will ruin your reputation and no one will trust you anymore(=any longer). So whenever we say, "I give you my word," we should mean it. There is nothing(which is) worse than to be let down by others because they have not kept their promises.
    In fact, it isn't so difficult to keep promises. (you)Just remember never to promise anything we are not sure we can live up to. In short, therefore, to be trustworthy, we should always say what we mean and mean what we say.

73. Don't Be a Fish out of Water  p.504
 
    Do you sometimes have a hard time understanding what Americans are talking about among themselves? Do you want to know why? The answer is, Americans are crazy about using slang. They tend to over do it, though.
    Otherwise, slang is fun to use. You should try it. And some slang is easy to understand. For example, if someone is "off the hook," it means that he is no longer in trouble. The "hook" is a fish hook. If a fish is on the hook, of course, it is in trouble. If it is "off the hook," then it is out of danger. Didn't we tell you slang is fun? Besides, it should at least help you feel more at home and not like a fish out of water when you speak to Americans.

Dear Allen,
[1] I just received your letter and I want to let you know my opinion of your plans for the future. I hope you won't take offense, but will accept what I say here as some fatherly advice.
[2] I was quite surprised when I read in your letter that you had decided not to finish your studies at the university. I realize that Peter wants you to marry him this summer. But with only one more year to go, you would be well advised to finish. A year is really a short time, and later you will be glad you postponed getting married.
[3] As you know, my reaction to Peter was extremely favorable when I met him. He's an exceptionally fine young man and should be a good husband. But I suggest you complete your education first.
[4] You are twenty-one, a grown-up young lady old enough to make up your own mind. This is something you'll have to work out yourself. As your uncle, I have always tried not to interfere in your affairs and I don't intend to begin now. But, my dear niece, please do consider my words very carefully before you decide. Whatever you do, though, Allen, you know I only want one thing for you, and that is your happiness. 
Affectionately, Uncle John

others. So it is important that you think before you say or do anything. In this way, you can avoid hurting
others' feelings. Moreover, a thoughtless act or remark can spoil a perfect relationship.

11. Power without Pollution p.69
 
Pollution is a big problem in almost all the big cities of the world. City people are, therefore, becoming
more and more worried about how they can get rid of pollution. They are also concerned about whether the
government is doing enough to protect the environment.
However, people in Ireland don't have these worries. They are sure that they have found the answer to the
problem. They use windmills. These windmills can create power without creating pollution. This method is so
successful that other countries are thinking of doing the same. Why not? What works for Ireland can work for
any other country.

13.Health Comes First p. 81
 
Smoking is bad in that it is harmful to one's health. In spite of the fact that doctors have even warned
that it causes cancer, people still keep on smoking.
In some Western countries, however, people are beginning to kick the bad habit. They realize that health
should come first. To help them quit smoking, there are laws against cigarette advertising and smoking in
public places. This is praiseworthy except that Western countries are now selling cigarettes in the East
in greater numbers than ever. That they are doing this is immoral, don't you think?

15. Don't Rely on Luck! P.93
 
Passing exams is every student's dream. Failing them is their nightmare. So, to realize their dreams, many
students try anything. They even go to fortunetellers, buy lucky charms and follow old customs.
In Korea, many students bury something personal in the university they want to enter. They believe that
these things will act as magnets and "pull" them into the university. Whether it works or not, nobody really
knows. At least it does ease the students' minds about passing exams. Remember, though, you can't always rely
on luck. There is no substitute for hard work.

You are in a strange city. It's late at night and you're tired. But you can't find your hotel. You sigh a
deep sigh. It seems like you are dreaming a terrible dream. What is happening?
This situation often happens to people who travel by car. But it may become a thing of the past. New auto
computers are being designed to tell you how to reach your destination. A small screen in your car displays
a map of the city and shows you where you are. Just give the computer the name of your hotel. You'll see it
on the map. To top it off, a voice will give you directions while you drive. With a car like this, what else

19. Blame it on Men p114
 
What's the real reason women get fat? It's not chocolate or ice cream. According to a recent report, which
was published in London, it's men! A magazine suggested men have a special warning written on their foreh-
eads:" I can make you fat!" what do you think of that idea?
The report claims that when women fall in love, they tend to eat more. When they get married, they cook more.
And when they get pregnant, of course, they gain weight. They blame it on men. So, girls, if you want to lose
weight, you don't have to go on a diet: just dump your boyfriends!
