W: Right. What do you want to do now, Karl?
M: I’d better get back to the hotel. I’m meeting someone this evening. W: Oh, OK. How are you going to get back?
M: I think I’ll take a taxi. Do you know where I can get one?
W: Oh, just wait by the side of the road. Taxis just drive past. I’ll wait with you. M: OK. Thanks. Um, are all the taxis in London black?
W: Yes. Well, nearly all of them. Is this your first time in a London taxi? M: Yes, it is. Do you give extra money to taxi drivers here?
W: You mean a tip? Oh, yes. They usually expect about ten percent. M: Yes, it’s the same in Germany. W: Oh, look, there’s one. Taxi! (Text 9)
W: Come on, Brad. Sit down. This is my favourite place. I hope you like it. M: Me, too.
W: OK, what should we order? What about spring rolls?
M: Spring rolls? I’ve never heard of those before. But you can order them if you want. W: Oh, well, how about soup? We could get ... hot and sour soup. It’s my favourite. M: Well, I’ve never tried that before. But you can go ahead. W: OK. How about dumplings? You’ll love them. M: I don’t think so.
W: Well, you have to eat something, Brad. Is there anything on this menu that you do want to try? M: Do you think they have French fries? W: Brad! This is a Chinese restaurant.
M: Well, I told you I just wanted a hamburger and fries. W: All right, you win. Let’s go and find another place. (Text 10)
M: Last year I was fortunate enough to be invited to cross the Namib Desert in south-west Africa. And it took me into extremes of heat. Our journey was five and a half days from start to finish, and we had to carry plenty of water to enable us to survive. It’s a bit like carrying a refrigerator on your back. It’s that sort of weight. The decision we made was to walk for three hours in the morning, and two hours in the late afternoon, and then rest through the rest of the day under a space blanket. And what we did was to stretch it between a rock surface and the desert floor, and then stay under it in the shade for the hottest part of the day. In that place, nothing can survive and. all that was left were the bones of animals. 参考答案

One possible version： Dear Sir，
Thank you for your offer inviting me to the summer English course in your school. As for my choice of the two courses, I’d certainly prefer the four-week course for 60 hours of study. This would allow me more time to see your beautiful country while learning the language. I would like to do some traveling and make a few new friends.
Of all the subjects I’m learning at school, I like English best. I have been learning English for 6 years and now I am able to listen, speak, read and write in English. I hope to take this chance to improve my spoken English as much as possible. Besides, I’d like to have home-stay for a couple of days so that I can know better about English habits and customs. I believe I will have a wonderful time in England this summer.
Yours, Li Hua
