96. Many sociologists point out that rural emigrants are putting pressure on population control and social order; that they are threatening to take already scarce city jobs; and that they have worsened traffic and public health problems.


  97. It is suggested that governments ought to make efforts to reduce the increasing gap between cities and countryside. They ought to set aside an appropriate fund for improvement of the standard of peasants' lives. They ought to invite some experts in agriculture to share their experiences, information and knowledge with peasants, which will contribute directly to the economic growth of rural areas.


  98. In conclusion, we must take into account this problem rationally and place more emphases on peasants' lives. Any government that is blind to this point will pay a heavy price.


  99. Although many experts from universities and institutes consistently maintain that it is an inevitable part of an independent life, parents in growing numbers are starting to realize that people, including teachers and experts in education, should pay considerable attention to this problem.


100. As for me, it is essential to know, at first, what kind of problems young students possible would encounter on campus.





Down-to-earth” means someone 0r something that is honest, practical and easy to deal with. It is   1   to find someone who is down-to-earth. A person who is down-to-earth is easy to talk to and   2   other people as equals. A down-to-earth person is just the   3   of someone who acts imp0rtant and proud.

Down-to-earth persons   4   be imp0rtant members of society, of course.   5  they do not let their imp0rtance “go to their heads”. They do not   6   themselves to be better persons than others of less imp0rtance. Someone who is filled with his own imp0rtance and pride, often without cause, is   7   to have “his nose in the air”. There is   8   way a person with his nose in the air[神气活现, 自高自大, 目空一切] can be down-to-earth.

Americans   9   another expression that means almost the same as “down-to-earth”. The expression is “both-feet-on-the-ground”. Someone with both-feet-on-the-ground is a person with a good   10   of reality. He   11   what is called “common sense”. He may have   12  , but he does not allow them to   13   his knowledge of what is real.

The opposite kind of   14   is one who has his “head-in-the-clouds”. A man with his-head-in-the-clouds is a dreamer whose   15   is not in the real w0rld.

   16  , such a dreamer can be brought back to earth.   17   words from a teacher can usually bring a day-dreaming student down-to-earth.

Usually, the person who is down-to-earth is very   18   to have both feet on-the –ground.

  19   we have both our feet on-the –ground, when we are down-to-earth, we act honestly and openly   20   others. Our lives are like the ground below us, solid and strong.

What Electives To Choose


With the reform of Chinese higher education, more and more colleges and universities put emphasis on nurturing students’ abilities. As a result, elective courses are available not only for excellent academic performers but also for students about the _______ level.


Certainly, students have different reasons to choose their own electives. For some, practical skills are the _______ of college education, and therefore, courses on computer science, marketing, and finance are highly preferred. On the other hand, others may hold the idea of liberal education and electives concerning literature, history, and philosophy are the most welcome.


Take me as an example: being a disciple of free education, I stand for the notion that university is not a place for survival skills, but a palace of knowledge and critical reasoning. Although my major is chemistry, the electives I attend most _______ are English literature, an Introduction _______ Classic Music, and Different Schools of Western Painting. They really _______ my horizon.
