29Most of us have probably heard of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and many of their famous Disney Characters. Perhaps we have even seen them in movies. But have you ever been to Disneyland? In fact, there are now four different Disneyland amusement parks around the world. Two are in the United States, one is in Japan, and the other is in France.
30Disneyland is an amusement park, but we can also call it a theme park Disneyland is an amusement park, but we can also call it a theme park. It has all the normal attractions that you can find at an amusement park, but it also has a theme. The theme, of course, is Disney movies and Disney characters. For example, you can find a roller coaster in most amusement parks, but in Disneyland, the roller coaster is themed with Disney characters.
31This means that you can find Disney characters all over the roller coaster. You can also watch Disney movies, eat in Disney restaurants, and buy Disney gifts. And you can see Disney characters walking around Disneyland all the time.Have you ever heard of a Disney Cruise? These are huge boats that also have the Disney theme. You can take a ride on the
32boat for several days, and you can sleep and eat on board boat for several days, and you can sleep and eat on board. There are also many attractions on board, just like any other Disneyland . You can shop, go to Disney parties, and eat dinner with Mickey Mouse! The boats rides all take different routes, but they all end up in the same place. That is Disney’s own island.It is just so much fun in Disneyland!

50Come to the Hilltop Language School and change your life. Here’s what two of our students said about our school.
51When I was a your girl, all I ever wanted to do wastraveling, and I decided thatthe best way to do this was to became a flight attendant. I’ve been a flight attendant for two years now. It's a really interesting job because I travel all over the world. I discovered that the most important requirement was to speak English well, so I studied English at
52the Hilltop Language School for five years before I became a flight attendant. It was because I could speak English that I got the job. Thank you, Hilltop Language School.Mei Shan
53I want to be a tour guide. In fact, it's all I have ever wantedto be. I want to travel, especiallyto English-speaking countries such as the United States and Australia. However, I know that I have to improve my English, so I've started taking lessons at the Hilltop Language School.
54The Hilltop Language School has really helped me learn English The Hilltop Language School has really helped me learn English. I've been a student here for a year now, and I really love it. Maybe when I leave school I'll think about becoming an English teacher rather than a our guide!David Feng
55Explanation It’s fun to learn another language. 句中it是形式主语，真正的主语是后面的不定式 to learn another language英语中动词和动词短语都可以做主语，这时常用动名词形式或it做主语，将真正的主语以动词不定式的形式放在后面，以避免主语太长而弄不清句意。如：
56Eating fruit and vegetables every day can keep us fit. It can keep you thin and healthy to take more exercise.
57动词不定式的用法，可以充当宾语、定语、表语和除谓语外的其他成分。 To get on well with the classmates is important for me. The most important thing is to save lives.Who wants to have another try?(作主语)(作表语)(作宾语)

74Have you ever been to Singapore Have you ever been to Singapore? For many Chinese tourists, this small island in Southeast Asia is a wonderful place to take a holiday. On the one hand, more than three quarters of the population are Chinese, so you can simple speak Putonghua a lot of time. On the other hand,
75Singapore is an English-speaking country, so It's also a good place to practice your English! Have you ever tried Chinese food outside of China? Maybe you fear that you won't be able to find anything to eat in a foreign country. In Singapore, however, you'll find a lot of food from China;
76you won't have any problem finding rice, noodles, or dumplings you won't have any problem finding rice, noodles, or dumplings. However, if you're feeling brave, Singapore is an excellent place to try new food. Whether you like Indian food, western food, or Japanese food, you'll find it all in in Singapore in you look!
77Most large cities have zoos, but have you ever been to a zoo at night Most large cities have zoos, but have you ever been to a zoo at night? Singapore has a night zoo called the ‘Night Safari’. It might seem strange to go to a zoo when it's dark. But if you've ever been to a zoo during the daytime, you might understand why this zoo is so special. A lot of animals only wake up at night , so this is the best time to watch them. If you go to see lions, tigers, or foxes during the daytime, they'll probably be asleep!
78At the Night safari, you can watch these animals in a more natural environment than a normal zoo. One great thing about Singapore is that the temperature is almost the same all year round. This is because the island is so close to the equator. So you can choose to go whenever you like -spring, summer, autumn, or winter! And, of course, it's not too far from China!
79Explanation seem的用法 He seems unhappy today. She seems sad. “好像、似乎” , 其后加形容词。He seems unhappy today.他今天好像不高兴。She seems sad.她似乎很伤心。
80They seem (to be) doctors. 2) seem +(to be) +介词 1) seem +(to be) +n.They seem (to be) doctors.他们好像是医生。2) seem +(to be) +介词It seems like years since I last saw Mr Green.从上次遇到格林先生, 好像与过了许多年。
