With the approach of Senior 3 studies, students in the second half of Senior 2 are under increasingly great pressure.
I used to being a substitute in our school’s football team. I didn’t play many on the field. However, I attended every team practice and tried my best to play on the field, if giving the chance. Last week, my coach informs me that I had been accepted as a player. I was not sure that I was fully prepared for the position or not. But my coach said he had seen my hard work and had faith me. I was so exciting that I couldn’t go to a sleep all night. I promised oneself that I would try harder but never give up my dream.
Few words 1. (speak) more often every day on the streets of Britain than “I’m sorry”. This phrase has become such a common 2. (respond) that it has taken on a lot of meanings.
Sorry means to apologize. This is simple and easy to understand. But in Britain, it takes on another meaning. It is a 3. (culture) expression. Imagine this: a man walks down the street, 4. (look) down at his phone. A woman is walking in the opposite direction toward the man. She sees him, but she can’t get out of the way in time. The man 5. (knock) into the woman. Who should say sorry? Naturally, the man should say sorry, because it was he who wasn’t looking 6. he was going. Yet in Britain, it is common 7. both to apologize. It is known that British people, like most people, do not enjoy conflict. So to quickly calm the situation. British people will apologize to each other.
Other times 8. may sound funny to hear “sorry”: Some of my friends say it at restaurants, as they ask the waiter: “Sorry, but can I order another drink?” It is not to apologize, 9. just to express that we need the waiter. In Britain, sorry doesn’t always mean 10. (exact) what you think.

Rules You Must Follow When Travelling with Friends
Traveling with friends can be an amazing experience. Here are some rules you should follow to make sure your next trip with friends goes as smoothly as possible.
Include at least one activity for everyone
Sure, you and your friends probably have some similar interests, but that's not always the case. 1.. Have each person categorize activities/sights/etc into "must-see", “want to see" and “would go if we have time'', and plan accordingly, making sure everyone gets to see at least some of their top attractions.
Be honest about personal requirements and preferences
2.. Some like getting the bed closest to the bathroom, and others prefer sitting in the airplane's window seat. To deal with this, have a conversation about everything from allergies and hygiene (卫生) to consideration of time and space.
When traveling with a group, you may want some alone time. 4.. Communicating your whereabouts (行踪) saves your travel companions from having to play detective in the event no one can find you.
Swallow your pride
Traveling brings out the good, the bad, and the ugly in all of us, so there are some tense moments every now and then. 5.. It's better to apologize quickly and most importantly, forgive and forget.
B.Don't play detective when traveling
C.Everyone has personal preferences when traveling
D.Everyone should be able to have a particular time
E.That's fine, but make sure your friends know where you are
F.To keep everyone happy, go over travel plans ahead of time
G.When this happens, we've just got to learn to bite our tongue
"I'm going to learn at least one dish each week. You just need to sit back and watch." I got off the phone with my mom and clicked on the TV-box-shaped icon （图标）of YouTube. We were just having a bet about whether I would ever be able to teach myself to cook without her step-by-step guidance.
Technology has revolutionized the way we learn. That was what I believed then. However, after two weeks of watching those instructional videos, the reality of my barely improved cooking struck me in the face. To be honest, the result didn't come off as too much of a shock. Deep down, I had always known that perfection relies in no small part on endless hours of meaningful practice.
I am not alone in experiencing this type of failure. With an impressive variety of online resources at our fingertips, it is natural that we use them to our advantage and learn new skills through "watching" them.
There's nothing ineffective about this kind of learning in itself. However, a recent study published in Psychological Science shows that if you watch an expert performing a skill unknown to you for too long, it will raise your self-confidence in a way that it arouses （激发）your unrealistic expectations of yourself. The dissonance between your true ability and your false view of it can have a negative influence on your learning outcome. You might become as discouraged as I was. And if your determination isn't strong enough, you might just give up halfway.
If right now you are considering learning something new through watching online videos, be it juggling pins （杂耍），ice-skating, or even Michael Jackson's timeless moonwalk, don't forget to mix it up with the tried-and-true method of practicing and repeating. And most importantly, try not to get caught up in the feel-good act of watching.

Tokyo's newly completed National Stadium was formally opened at a ceremony attended by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the famous architect Kengo Kuma. Costing around 157 billion yen （$1.4 billion）, the 68,000-seat stadium will host the opening and closing ceremonies at both the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. It will also be used for soccer matches and various track-and-field events during the Games.
Kuma said his design features three tiers （层）of seats beneath a partially covered roof made from steel and wood. “With the 2020 Olympics, we wanted to create something that focuses public attention on the environment or the Earth at the time/' he told CNN in an interview in June. “So., we thought that the best material for this era would be wood/'
At Sunday's ceremony, Abe praised the design for achieving ''harmony with the surrounding environment and a Japanese character." But as recently as 2015, the new National Stadium could have looked dramatically different. A futuristic design by the late British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid had initially been selected, though Japan's Olympic organizers eventually gave up the plan because of enormous costs and fierce criticisms. Celebrated architect Arata Isozaki described Hadid's design as a "disgrace to future generations/'
The mission was then passed to 65-year-old Kuma. and he set about reimagining the project in his characteristically organic style. The architect said that his stadium design was partly inspired by Tokyo's Edo-period temples. "All over the world, architecture in the 20th century that uses concrete and steel feels cold and stiff I want to make it softer, kinder, warmer/' said Kuma, whose firm designed the stadium alongside architecture firm Azusa Sekkei. His final design features large roof eaves （屋檐）that encourage air to circulate, allowing breeze （微风）to enter the stadium during hot weather.
"We would like both athletes and audiences to enjoy the stadium, but we also thought of something we can contribute to the community," Kuma said, highlighting the pedestrianized areas he designed around the structure. The late switch of design meant that construction on the stadium did not begin until late 2016. As such, plans for the stadium to host matches in the recent Rugby World Cup were canceled.
