Sun Wen -28 years old

“It’s never too late to learn.” That was the advice I got after I failed my college entrance exam. Now I’m about to graduate from the School of Continuing Education at Qinghua university with a Bachelor’Degree in Computer Engineering by distance learning. Because of my new qualification, I’m getting ______promote at work.

In the past, if someone like me had failed to get into university through the college exam, he would have had no chance of getting a degree. But it’s different now. I decided to give myself ______ second chance by studying for a degree in the evenings and ______ weekends while keeping a secure full-time job. Frankly speaking, the last four years have been hard work, but it’s been hard work, but it’s been worth it!


Ms Tang-45 years old

   Three months ago, when my manager told me that I would be ______lay off, my mind went blank and my heart swelled ______ anger. In the past, if someone had worked for a company for over 20 years, they would have stayed there until retirement! I suspect that they laid me off because the company was not doing that well but it still brought a lump to my throat and made me want to cry. I felt as if I ______do something wrong ! I know this isn’t true though. It’s just the status of the job market at the moment.

At first, I enjoyed ______be a full-time housewife and called myself ” CHO” or “chief home officer”. But soon I got bored and decided to do a business course. I have always dreamed of starting my own company.

I have nearly finished the course now and it has been very helpful. I have learnt so many new skills and have already prepared a business plan for setting up my own export company! I think that getting laid off well

prove to be the best thing that ever happened ______ me.


Grand Chen -75 years old

  I’m sure you all know the saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Well, it’s certainly not true! I’m an old dog, and I’m teaching myself new tricks every day!

   It all started a few months ago when postage went up. I’d been sending letters ______ airmail to my daughter in the US once a week, but, suddenly, it was too expensive. I decided that it was time I became an Internet user. I got my grandson to instruct me on how to email and use the Internet and I really enjoy the speed ______ which my messages get sent and answered. And aside from emailing, it’s fun to see and talk to my grandchildren in the US on the i-Cam. In the past, if I’d wanted to see them, I would have had to visit them ______ person.

  So many people think that after you retire, all you can do is switch ______ your brain and bury everything you’ve ever learnt. This is so wrong!

  Anyway, it’s time for me to go now. I have to practice the alphabet! I’m doing an English course ______ the Internet.
