When I was little, I used to be afraid of the dark. I always thought that there was a ghost in my closet（壁櫥）. Houses often made strange noises at night. Sometimes I could feel eyes watching me and I was afraid to move. I thought that if I didn't move, "they" wouldn't get me. Usually when this happened, I wanted to go to the bathroom. So before going there I would be huddling（縮作一團）under my quilt, trying to build up the courage for scary night-time trip to the bathroom.
My fear of the dark left me when I was in my early teens. I had a dream. In my dream, I saw this ghost. He was right in front of me. I somehow found the courage. I was so angry with him that I beat him. This dream was so exciting that I can still remember it. After this dream, my fear of the dark was gone. I'm not afraid of the dark or anything else anymore.
Has anyone else had a dream like this that helped him or her?
Asking for directions is the first thing we do when we arrive in a new place, or even when we are just trying to find a strange place. Knowing how to ask for them can make our life much easier.
Use greetings and polite expressions. Starting the conversation with a greeting is necessary. If you want to get a nice answer, you'd better begin by saying "hello" first. And some words like "may" "can" and "could" will help you express yourself better.
Build your words. You should knew the basic words when asking for directions. It may be useful for you to remember some famous places. Then try to use the right words when asking for a direction.
Get to know the transportation system. Sometimes, you're likely to find that you are still far from the place you want to visit. Which kind of public transportation should you choose? You might ask like this. Is it far? Do I need to take the bus or the subway there?
Don't be afraid of using symbols. Every city in the world has its own symbols. You can decrease search time if you know what the most important symbols are in the city. And if you pay attention to your place, you may find that there are many symbols here.
Don't be too shy to ask. Learn to relax if you get lost somewhere. Every person may do that now and then, especially when visiting a new city. But always make sure you can ask others for help.
Nowadays, many people drive their cars to work. There are a lot of cars in the street and the1is very busy. So sometimes it is not2 for people to get to work on time. When you are going to be late, you only dream of taking a plane there. Can3dream come true?
Yes! You can take a plane in months!
Four engineers in Germany are4in making planes. They are making a new plane-Lilium jet. It doesn't look like a plane5an egg. Many people think it looks funny and interesting, The great "egg" can take two people to the sky and6 three hundred kilometers in one hour. That's really great.
Some people call Lilium jet "a flying car". Why? Firstly, it's not difficult for people to learn to drive it. People can drive it just like driving a car. But it can go 7and farther than a car. Secondly, Lilium jet is not very big, only a quarter of a plane. So it doesn't need a(n)8. Only a small place is OK. It can stop anywhere. In the future, the "flying car" will come into people's life and9our ways of trip.
Lilium jet will come on the market soon.10you want to make your trip easy and funny; why not buy one? I'm sure you will have a good time on it.
