21 . What do Shaolin Institute Oriental Culture Camp and BYE Summer Camp have in common?
22. If Mr. Darcy wants his son, aged 5 to join Tumbletots Summer Gamp and his daughter, aged 14 to join BYESummer Camp for 5 weeks, how much should he pay at least?
23. If parents want their kids to learn about Chinese culture, they should call_.
Like any great city in the world, it is impossible to cover the greatest sites of Beijing in one day. If possible,do this on a weekend and mix with other tourists. It's a small price to pay for the experience of being among Chinese, many of whom are not tourists.
Any visit to Beijing is incomplete without a hike on the Great Wall. However, the Wall is thousands of mileslong and the Beijing section constitutes only a small part, despite the most touristy part. The general choice is Badaling, but I recommend Juyong Pass, which is less crowded but no less impressive. Depending on your health and preference, you can climb very steep steps or have a walk on the relatively flat areas. There are numerous locations for great photo opportunities. On a clear day, your eyes can reach the most remote beacon(烽火)tower.
A side trip to the Ming Tombs will take you into the underground palaces where 13 of the Ming Dynasty emperors were laid to rest. Only two of them are open to the public anyway at present. A sampling of Dingling, which is the tomb of the 10th emperor and his two empresses, should be enough.
The Olympic Green is an area Lying north of the Fourth Ring Road. The Forest Park to its north is twice the size of our Central Park in New York. But if you are on a tight schedule, the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube offer he best concentration of must-see sights.
Inside Beijing, the Lama Temple, though not a typical site of worship for most Chinese, lias a uniqueattraction. It is a symbol of Tibetan Buddhism(佛教).Buddhism is a major religion in China, with millions of temples dotting the nation's landscape.
The Temple of Heaven is where emperors used to hold ceremonies to pray to heaven, from which they thought their power came. Local Chinese find their enjoyment from group singing, dancing, tai chi and all kindsof recreation on a weekend morning.

It is now close to four years since 1 last took a holiday. This is because I have come to the conclusion, over the course of my adult life, that I am not very good at it. You might think this sounds strange. What could possibly be difficult about the natural act of putting your working life on hold for a couple of weeks and going somewhere to do nothing?
The problems started during my twenties: a stoles tent and wallet at the Glastonbury Festival in 1995; a lightning strike and sudden 1,000-foot drop in altitude over the Channel in 1997; an ill-fated journey ended with the Calais police mistaking me for a drug smuggler(走私者).
But even if I manage to go away without being robbed or food poisoned, I now find that I can't really committt o the experience. A trip to the south of France was ended after just two days, mainly because I had an urge to check my e-mails.Similarly, my honeymoon was cut short by 48 hours not because my wife and l weren't enjoying ourselves, but because we were missing our cats.
So what is my problem? On the surface, I'm probably a bit of homebody. And I just find the pressure of beingon holiday too severe: it always feels like having a gun held to my head and being forced to have fun. Somehow,packing a list of possessions and meeting a scheduled flight has none of the excitement of suddenly deciding to take a day off and driving somewhere for the fun of it.
Thankfully, I am not alone. This summer, most of my friends have decided not to have a break. And a recent survey highlighted the downside of holidays, with the results showing that nearly two thirds of people found that the calming effects of a holiday wore off within 24 hours, as stress levels returned to normal.
What interests me is what the concept of a "holiday" says about our lives. For me, the point of living is to have a life you enjoy for 52 weeks a year. The more I like my life and the better I structure it, the less I want to go away. Maybe I'm an unusual person for not likingholidays, but I just feel the time when I'm working is too valuable to waste on going away.
28. Why is it four years long since the author took his last holiday?
29. From the events listed in the second paragraph, we can infer that the author_.
30. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
31.What is the author's attitude towards "taking a holiday"?
Stop, don't breathe. Hold it! OK, first pay 1.2 yuan ($0.17) if you want fresh air to reach your lungs. No, we not kidding. The most precious but free thing in the world air is now being bottled and sold on some e-commerce platforms in the country. The air comes from both home and abroad, priced from 5 yuan to more than 200 yuan.
"Want to breathe the most pure and fresh air? Then take a bottle of air from Weihai. No pollutants, absolutely pure. Either from seashore, or from mountain," an advertisement of an online store claims. A bottle of fresh air from Weihai, East China's Shandong province, is priced 5 yuan at an online outlet called "Weihai Hongyu Diaoju." The imported air is more expensive. For example, the bottled air branded Vitality Air from Canada costs 108 yuan a bottle of 7.2 liters, and the air from New Zealand 219 yuan a bottle of 7, 7 liters.
How to use the bottled air? Open the bottle and take a deep breath. The Vitality Air of Canada provides buyersmasks, and the bottle of New Zealand air has an injector(喷嘴).A bottle of New Zealand air could be used around 180 times. What about the shelf life? Seders of Weihai air claim it has a long shelf life, the Vitality Air has one year and the New Zealand air is valid if the bottle is not opened.
Are there buyers? The owner of "Weihai Hongyu Diaoju" said that no one has yet bought the air, and it was only to fulfill people's curiosity. A seller of the Vitality Air said that it was useless, but a novel product. But the seller still made five deals in a month. The Vitality Air said cm its official WeChat account, a Twitter-like service, the company sold 10,600 bottles in eight months since May 2015. So far, there are no standards on the bottled air in China, and what kind of product does the bottled air belong to? The seller of New Zealand air said that he did not know either. An official said China has no special laws on banning such product from entering the country. A Beijing lawyer on product quality and safety, said the imported air is related to safety problems because of the pressure container. The imported pressure container should get registered and approved by authorities.

I study in a town school and live in a village 20 km away. One afternoon, I received a call from my family saying my mom was serious ill. I hurried to the bus station, only to find the last bus left. Feeling anxious, I decided to walk home. In the way a car stopped and the driver asked me that if I needed help. Worried about being
