AOne day, while I was waiting for my father, I saw alittle boy,around two years old, running freely
on the grass as his mother watched from a short distance.The boy had a big smile on his face as if
he had just been set free from some sort of prison（监狱）. The boy would then fall to the grass, get
up, without looking back at his mother,run as fast as he could,again, still with a smile on his
face,as if nothing had happened. At that moment, I thought to myself,"Why aren't most adults this
way?" Most adults, when they fall down, make a big deal out of it and don't even make a second
attempt. They would be so embarrssed that they would not try again if someone saw them fall. Or,
because they fall, they would find a good excuse for themselves that they're not fit for it. They
would end up being too afraid to attempt again for fear of failure（失败）.
However, with kids, when they fall down, they don't consider their falling down as a failure;
instead, they treat it as a learning experience.They try again and again until they succeed. The
answer must be that they have not connected"falling down" with the word"failure".What's more,
they probably think to themselves that it's quite okay to fall down and that i's not wrong to do
so.In other words, they allow themselves to make mistakes, so they remain energetic.
I was deeply impressed by the boy's persistence（坚持不懈）and the manner in which he did.
26. What did the little boy do when he fell down?
A. He cried and lay on the grass.
B. He asked his mother for help.
C. He got up and went on running.
D.He got up and stood there crying.
27.In the wrier's opinion, what might the little boy regard his falling down as?
A.A failure. B.A joke.
C.An interesting game. D. A learning experience.
28.In the writer's opinion, why can't many adults succeed?
A. Because they are afraid of being embarrssed.
B.Because they can't find a good excuse.
C. Because once they fail, they won't attempt again.
D. Because they don't allow themselves to make mistakes.
29.The underlined word "attempt" in Paragraph 2 means ___.A. 尝试 B.放弃 C.面对 D.怀疑
30.What does the writer want to tell us?
A. Practice makes perfect.
B. Failure is the mother of success.
C. All roads lead to Rome.
D.Each coin has two sides.
At my primary school, I was one of the smartest kids there.I never studied, but always got perfect
scores. I thought I was born clever. At least I believed so.I was also a prodigy in music according
to myself. I could sing better than almost anyone elsein my school. I was pretty sure that once I
got to sixth grade, everyone would be surprised by me. But actually, they weren't.
When I arrived at my new class,I couldn't wait to show everyone what I could do. However, there
was always someone else who could do better. My grades began to suffer. More talented girls
often sang solo（独唱）.I believed I wasn't smart.I believed I wasn't talented. I believed I was a
Over the next two years,I had to work very hard.Every prize for the singing competition was given
to me for hard work and efforts.Grades were still very low but improving little by little. I worked
really hard. However, I was never the best at everything. I haven't realized until recently that I
really don't have to be the best at everything. I was too hard on myself. In fact, when I did badly in
a test, my classmates never laughed at me.
No one is perfect.There will probably always be someone better than me at something. Anyway,
there are about seven billion people in this world. I will never be the number one at everything,
and that's really okay.

I got into the teaching job by chance.When I was in 9th grade,my math teacher asked me to teach
a class for a few students who were having difficulties with math.And believe me, I really enjoyed
teaching that class and I never knew teaching would be so interesting. I loved my "students",and

（批判地），question and also respect others' views.

they could really learn anything. That is why Iloved to teach.

advised me to walk first and then try running. So I did every day after school. I continued doing it
for more than two years.Thanks to my PE teacher,last month I passed the running test
