runs with it - we have 1,700 animals of 250
species. It's like a zoo, a safari, an amusement

park and, well, Disney World, all in one.

The obsession with Legos lives large at this
building-block-inspired resort. It's part
amusement park, part science center, part lookwhat-we-built-with-Legos exhibit.

For little kids: Head with little kids to the
Affection Station petting zoo and see what
animal encounters are happening at the
Conservation Station.

For little kids: Head to Fun Town with your
preschoolers, where they can play with Duplos,
drive mini cars, and see how Legos are made.

For big kids: Thrill seekers will revel in the Kali For big kids: The Land of Adventure has several
River Rapids, Dinosaur, and Expedition Everest exciting rides. Big kids will probably also want
rides.

Magic Kingdom is massive and a day there can be exhausting, but there's really something for
everyone - and the characters and stories that inspired the attractions have a soft spot in our hearts,
which is why families from all over the world flock there every year.
For little kids: Take a boat ride and sing the infectious song at "it's a small world" tour Mickey and
Minnie's homes.

More than 80% of American high school students work at part-time jobs in the evenings, on
weekends or in summer. These part-time jobs bring teenagers great advantages.
One of the benefits of the work is the students can learn the skills that will be useful for the rest of
their lives. When they work, they have to manage both the job and schoolwork. To be able to do so,
they must be very organized and able to keep a sensible schedule. They also learn to cope with the job
stress apart from the stress of the schoolwork. Some of the most stressful jobs include teaching,
nursing, and police work. These skills help prepare teenagers for their later careers. High school
students who work are more likely to succeed as adults than people who enter the job market at a later
age with no work experience.
Teenagers want a lot of expensive things: clothes, mp3 players, trips with their friends, etc. Not all
parents can afford them. And even if they can, the teens might not really appreciate that money
because they did not earn it. When teenagers make money for themselves, they know its true and are
less likely to spend it foolishly.
1. Which of the following is a good title for the passage?
A. Why teenagers should work
B. Advantages and disadvantages of part-time jobs
C. Part-time jobs cause stress
2. According to the passage, what is NOT an effect of part-time jobs?
A. Teenagers become organized.
B. Teenagers become stressed.
C. Teenagers are more likely to have successful careers.
3. The phrase “cope with” in the passage is closest in meaning to ______.
A. fight against
B. deal with
C. suffer from
4. According to the passage, when teenagers have jobs, they are more likely to _______.
A. spend foolishly
B. want expensive things
C. appreciate money
5. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?
A. Only some US students do part-time jobs.
B. US students suffer part-time job stress
C. Part-time jobs are somehow good for teenagers

There have been several changes in my neighborhood. It has got much more crowded in recent years.
More and more people have been moving here to work. Therefore, the traffic has become busier and
there are often traffic jams during rush hours. Also, more high buildings have been built to meet the
demand for accommodation. However, there is less green space in my neighborhood now. It also has
gotten noisier. These changes have influenced my life greatly. Now it takes more time for me to get to
school, and I don’t have anywhere to go for some fresh air after school. I also don’t sleep very well
because of all the noise. The smoke from all the traffic and factories pollutes the air and makes
travelling during rush hours terrible.
