One day， I heard an American boy say to a Chinese girl student， “You speak very good English.” But the girl answered， “No， no. My English is very poor.” The foreigner was quite 1 at the answer. Thinking he had not 2 himself understood or the girl had not heard him clearly， he said， “Yes， indeed， you speak very well.” 3 the girl still kept saying， “No.” In the end the American boy could not understand and didn’t know what to say.
What’s wrong with the girl’s answer？ She didn’t 4 a compliment （恭维） in the same way as American people do. She should answer “Thank you” instead of “No”. She
5 understood what the American boy had said， but she thought she should be modest （谦虚的）. In the west， people will feel proud and 6 when they are praised. So if someone says the 7 you have cooked are very delicious， you should say “Thank you”.
In our country we think being modest is a virtue （美德） and being proud is a bad thing， but in my opinion， being confident does not 8 being proud， so sometimes you should be confident as well as be modest.
If you are modest and say “No， I’m afraid I can’t do it well” while working in a western country， the others may think that you really cannot do it. If you often say “No”， you will 9 be looked down upon by others. When asking for a job， if one says something like “Yes， I can certainly do it” instead of “Let me have a try”， he or she will 10 get it. So in the west， you should be brave to show your self-confidence （自信）.

A psychologist （心理学家） walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water， everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead， with a smile on her face， she inquired： “______________________？”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz （盎司） to 20 oz.
She replied， “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute， it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour， I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day， my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case， the weight of the glass doesn’t change， but the longer I hold it， the heavier it becomes.” She continued， “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long， you will feel numb—unable to do anything.”
It is important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can， put all your burdens （負担） down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down！

Some Etiquette （礼仪） in Modern Life
Do you often use a mobile phone？ Do you take the subway to school every day？ These items （项目） make our modern life easier. But do you know how we should behave properly while using them？ The following suggestions might be helpful.
For mobile phone users
◆Keep your voice down when you make a phone call in public. Shouting on the phone may make others feel uncomfortable. And you’d better not use it during an appointment （约会）.
◆Stop sending messages or playing games with your mobile phone at a dinner or a party. It’s a good time to communicate with your family and friends.
◆Don’t make or answer a call while driving. It is not only very dangerous for both you and your passengers but also against the law.
For subway passengers
◆You are supposed to wait in line while buying tickets and getting on the subway.
◆You’re not allowed to eat， drink or smoke on the subway train. The smell and noise may trouble others. It’s our duty to keep the train clean and tidy. Besides， smoking is bad for health.
◆You can’t take pets on the train. As we all know， animals may spread diseases and get the train dirty.
1. You must keep your voice down when you call somebody in public.
2. You’d better communicate with your friends by sending messages at a dinner.
3. You should wait in line to buy tickets before you get on the subway.
4. Drinking on the subway train isn’t allowed.
5. Sometimes you can bring your pets with you to get on the subway.

The most unusual museum in London is the Science Museum. In most museums， there’s no shouting and no running， and you aren’t allowed to touch the exhibits （展品）. But the Science Museum is different because it’s noisy！ People talk about what they can see and do there， and some of the machines are noisy as well. Visiting the Science Museum is fun and it’s a great way to learn about science because you can work things out and try out ideas.
When I visit the Science Museum， I go to the Launch Pad （发射台）. This is my favorite room because you can do physics experiments. For example， if you want to fill a bag with falling sand， you have to move a kind of truck on wheels into the correct position. I also go to the Rocket Show. You can learn how we travel into space and back again.
Then I go upstairs （向楼上） to the Human and Nature room. You can compare your speed with animals there. You hear a noise and push a button. If you aren’t fast enough， the lion catches you！ I’m faster than all my friends， but the lion still catches me.
You can do a lot of things in this museum， but you have to obey some rules as well. For example， you mustn’t take photos of the exhibits in the museum. But you can buy postcards of them in the museum shops.
Above all， the Science Museum is free. That means you can drop in for a few minutes or you can stay as long as you like—it’s open every day， from 10 am to 6 pm. So if you ever go to London， make sure you visit the Science Museum. It’s my favorite museum in the whole world.
1. Where does the writer go first when he visits the Science Museum？
2. What can you try out in the Human and Nature room？
3. How much does it cost to visit the Science Museum？
4. How long can you stay at the Science Museum？
5. What does the writer think of the Science Museum？
