Dogs are our best friends. But it’s hard to believe that they used to be wild animals.
Thousands of years ago, you couldn’t find dogs. You could find wolves (狼). Wolves and humans lived side by side. The wolves probably ate the food people threw away around their villages.

Dogs communicate through body language and sound. It might bark (吠) with excitement, give you a lick (舔) or wag (摆动) its tail to show its happiness. Wagging its tail back and forth (来回地) means a dog feels relaxed and friendly. Wagging its tail low tells you that a dog feels worried. Standing its tail straight up tells you that a dog feels nervous.

Lulu, a Hungarian PhD (匈牙利哲学博士) student at Tsinghua University, first came to Beijing in 2017. She soon fell in love with the city. She also found her greatest hobby—Peking Opera.
Lulu watched Peking Opera for the first time in an opera museum. “I found it really fantastic,” she said. “Both the outfits (装束) and the movements were so wonderful. The face-painting was something I’d never seen before. It is so different from Western opera.”
With great interest, she joined the Peking Opera group of Tsinghua University. That made her see that Peking Opera is much more than just the looks. “There is really, really huge cultural and historical background in Peking Opera.”
The group members practice twice a week. Mostly, they practice singing and movements. The biggest problem for Lulu was learning the Asian way of singing. “To start with, my throat was in great pain, because I was using my voice in the wrong way,” she said. But with the help of teachers, she has improved a lot.
There are other international students in the group. “I really love Peking Opera because it brings us together,” she said. “I believe that art has no boundaries (界限) and music has no language barriers (障碍). I hope to share my love for Peking Opera with more people outside China.”

When people around the world talk about ping-pong, they must think of China. Without doubt, ping-pong has been China’s national sport for a long time. Why do Chinese ping-pong players always dominate (称霸) the world’s major (主要的) ping-pong events (比赛项目)? One of the reasons is that there is a large fan base (基础) for the sport in China. Almost everyone can play a little. You can hear the sound of ping-pong almost everywhere in China. People of all ages like this kind of sport.
My father, for example, has played it for more than 50 years. Every day, he goes to the park and plays ping-pong with his old friends for two hours. It is part of his life. He was even named one of the “Beijing Masters (高手)” when he was 70.
Not only the old people, but also kids are practicing hard in any ping-pong club in China. Many children hope that they can be excellent players one day. The great players’ spirit of never giving up encourages the young to stick to their dreams. Also, many kids say playing ping-pong helps them relax after doing schoolwork.
Chinese people take part in this sport, not only to win, but also to have fun, to socialize (社交) and to live a healthy life.
76. Who always dominates the world’s major ping-pong events?
77. How long has the writer’s father played ping-pong?
78. What does the great players’ spirit encourage the young to do?
79. Why do many kids play ping-pong after doing schoolwork?
80. Do Chinese people play ping-pong just to win?
As we all know, food waste can be seen everywhere. To help deal with it, our whole class did a survey. Here is the food waste report.
We find that there is serious food waste in homes. Some people finish only about half of the meat, vegetables or fruit they have already bought. They throw away the rest of the food. Some people don’t check what food they have before shopping. So it’s wise for people to plan meals. They should check what is in their fridges. And they can read some books about cooking to deal with the food they have.
A lot of food is wasted in schools. Too much food is ordered from food suppliers (供应商). Many students often don’t like the food that their schools serve them. So schools should order less food. And students should be educated to know the importance of saving food. They can also play a part in deciding menus with the school cooks.
Food waste is a serious problem here. Too many fresh ingredients (食材) are ordered every day. And food goes stale (不新鲜的) soon and is wasted during cooking. Some restaurants serve customers more than they can eat up. For these reasons, food must be properly stored (储存) and kept at the right temperature. And customers should be encouraged to take away the food they can’t eat up.
