Since many of you are planning to study at a college or university in the future, you may be carious to know what your future study will be like. This is the question I want to discuss with you today.
First, let’s talk about what your weekly timetable will look like. No matter what your major may be, you can expect to spend between four and six hours a week for each class attending lecture. Lectures are usually in very large rooms because some courses such as Introduction to Sociology or Economics often have as many as two or three hundred students, especially at large universities. In lectures, it’s very important for you to take notes on what the professor says because the information in a lecture is often different from that in your textbooks. Also, you can expect to have exam questions based on the lectures. So it isn’t enough to just read your textbooks; you have to attend lectures as well. In a typical week, you will also have a couple of hours of discussion for every class you take. The discussion part is a small group meeting usually with fewer than thirty students where you can ask questions about the lectures, the reading, and the homework. In large universities, graduate students called teaching assistants, usually direct discussion parts
If your major is chemistry, or physics, or another science, you’ll also have to spend several hours a week in the lab doing experiments. This means that science majors spend more time in the classroom than non-science majors do. On the other hand, people who major in subjects like literature or history usually have to read and write more than science majors do.

Hundreds of children are being treated for sleep problems in Wales every year. In some cases, babies, infants and teenagers have been admitted to hospital while in north Wales alone.
The Children’s Sleep Charity said many children were suffering from lack of sleep mainly because of technology use. Public Health Wales said sleep was as important to a child’s health as healthy eating and exercise, and children with poor sleep patterns were more likely to be fat.
Statistics obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by BBC Wales found at least 408 children have been admitted to hospitals across Wales suffering from sleep disorders since March 20xx.
Children aged between 0 and4 made up the highest number of inpatients (住院病人), with some newborns being treated for sleep-related problems from the day of birth.
Vicki Dawson, who set up the Children’s Sleep Charity (CSC), said sleepless nights were putting both children and parents in anxiety. “Their weight and growth may also be affected as well as their mental health,” she said.
Teachers said children showing signs of sleep shortage and tiredness in class were a concern as they couldn’t concentrate for long periods.
Psychologist Amy McClelland, of Sleep Wales, said a common problem was children being “over excited” and “not having the chance to relax property” before bed and families should get back to basics. “Think 1950s family home. Dinner as a family, read, chat, a film maybe, lights off and then bed.” She added.
1.What’s the main reason why children are short of sleep
A. Less exercise.B. Eating habits.
C. Sleep patterns.D. Technology use.
2.Who are the majority of the inpatients with sleep-related disorders
A. Teenagers.B. Infants.
C. Teachers.D. Parents.
3.What can we infer from what Amy McClelland said
A. Relaxation has a bad effect on children.
B. Chatting and films make children sleep more.
C. Being too excited is good for sleep habits.
D. It is difficult for children to read before bed.
4.What is the best title for the text
A. Ways to Treat Sleep ProblemsB. Sleep Habits of Welsh Children
C. Sleep Problems of Welsh ChildrenD. The Problems of Welsh Children

Please wear loose clothing, mostly cotton. It is obvious that wearing clothing that is loose rather than tight is welcomed in summer. 1.. This carries away the warmth that your body produces and allows cooler air to flow back in.
2.. When it’s really hot out, materials that “breathe” — allowing the flow of air through the fabric (衣料) itself — also work to keep you cool. Cotton and linen are among the most breathable fabrics，so look for clothes made of those substances.
Your body controls its temperature via a small peanut-shaped section of the brain known as the hypothalamus (下丘脑). 3.. It turns the temperature up or down based on various factors — such as how cold or hot the skin is.
Certain parts of the skin have a larger influence than others. 4.. They get their name because you can feel your pulse there, and the reason you can do that is because vessels are so close to the edge of your skin that one can easily hear or feel the flow of blood.
When you want to lower your body temperature, cooling those pulse points with cold water or ice sends a signal to the brain that says, “Turn cold.” 5.. Focus on pulse points that are easy to reach: the insides of your wrists, the area around your temple, and your neck. Holding an ice pack or even a cold washcloth against the skin on these regions will make your entire body feel cooler.
A. It allows air to flow past the skin
B. Sweating helps to cool off the skin
C. These areas are called pulse points (脉冲点)
D. The type of fabric you wear has an influence, too
E. This fools your brain into turning down its thermostat (恒温器)
F. This region works almost like a thermostat in a home
G. Exercising in extreme heat is usually not recommended
