new words and expression
Read about a visit to the Guangzhou Museum and answer the questions.
Yesterday,Jiamin and his classmates did something different.
They went on a school trip.
Jiamin was so excited that by eight o'clock in the morning,
he was already at school and waiting for the bus.
Poor Jiamin!He had left home much to early,
as the bus didn't come until just before half past.
He had to wait in the street for nearly thirty minutes!
The drive to Yuexiu Park didn't take long.
By the time Jiamin and his friends had sung a few songs and told a few stories,
the bus had arrivedand everyone was getting ready to get off.
Jiamin had visited the park many times before with his parents
but he had never gone inside the museum.
That was where they were going now.
As the class walked up to the front door of the five-floor museum
a man stepped out to meet them.
His name was Mr Zhu and he was their guide for the morning.
Mr Zhu had been a soldier and then a teacher for many years.
Now he showed people around the museum.
'Welcome to the museum,'he said.
'Today,I will tell you all about this wonderful old building
and show you many of the interesting things inside it.'
He also had a special surprise for the students.
'And,since you're middle school students,I'll talk to you in English.
'Mr Zhu had studied English!
When the class had seen everything
and they had thanked Mr Zhuit was time for lunch.
A special lunch had been ordered for them in a restaurant near the park
The class were almost as interested to see itas they had been to see the museum!
new words and expression
Listen to Jiamin talking about Mr Zhu
and say whether the sentences are true (T) or false (F).
Mr Zhu said that if you want to see history,you should look at him!
He was just being funny,of course.
He meant that he had lived for a long time
and had seen lots of surprising things.
During his last year at middle school,
Mr Zhu decided thathe would go to university,
but,at the end of the year,he joined the army instead.
Being a soldier was very dangerous.
There were many hard days and,once or twice,he though that he would die.
He used to say that he was going to live very quietly and safely after the war,
if he didn't die in it!
When the war ended,Mr Zhu went to live on a farm.
wasn't sure if he would like farming,but he did.
Many of the young children who lived near him didn't know how to read or write.
They asked Mr Zhu if he would teach them.
Soon he was also teaching them maths,history and other subjects.
Without planning it,he had become a teacher.
Mr Zhu taught for many years in a small school.
When he stopped,he said that he wasn't going to do anything
except rest and read books.
But then a friend asked himif he would help at the museum for a few weeks.
Ten years later,he is still there.
Listen to Jiamin telling his mother about his visit to the museum.
Then read their conversation and report the questions she asked him.
Mum:I'm on the phone,Jiamin.Yes,thanks very much.Goodbye.
Well,Jiamin.How was your day at school?
Jiamin:I didn't go to school toady.Remember We went to Yuexiu Park.
Mum:Oh,of course.Did you all enjoy yourselves?
Jiamin:We had a great time!I learned a lot,too.
Mum:What did you learn?
Jiamin:Well,I learned about Zhu Liang.
Mum:Who is he?
He's the man who built the Zhenhai Building the building the museum is in.
Mum:Oh?When did he build it?It was part of the old city wall,wasn't it?
Jiamin:That's right,and it's the only part left now.
It was built in 1380 and...
Mum:Jiamin,come into the kitchen and tell me the rest.
It's nearly time for dinner.Are you hungry?
Jiamin:Oh,yes!Learning all that history has made me really hungry!
