  Getting to know mom
  "For as long as I can remember, mom has been a middle-aged woman, but no one told me she used to he a young girl." This is a line from the film Hi, Mom, as well as the way director and the Jia Ling once felt about her own mother.
  Released on Feb 12, the film is the directorial debut (导演首秀) of 39-year-old Jia. It has gotten a high score of 8. 1 on the movie rating website Douban. Many people said they were touched by its raw (质朴的) emotion.
  The film is based on the real-life story of Jia and her mother. To make the film more appealing (有吸引力的). Jia made it a time-travel story. She goes back to 1981 and becomes friends with her own mom, Li Huanying. She risks giving up her own life to make sure that her mother has a better future.
  Hollywood Reporter commented (评论): Hi, Mom has "hit all the right notes(音符)." The film has also been praised for its sincere depiction (描绘) of female roles. In the movie, Li is more of a young girl rather than a mother. The many women who helped make the film, including Jia herself, helped the movie's female roles shine in ways that had nothing to do with their looks, according to Jiemian News.

18.  It's 7:45 in the morning, and 26-year-old Steve Clarkson in going to work. He puts on his jacket, and picks up his mobile phone and laptop (笔记本电脑). As he leaves the house, he turns on his MP3 player and puts on his headphone. He is ready to go.
  Today, for millions of people, gadgets like Clarkson's are a normal part of life. "I work for a magazine, and I'm usually not in the office. My mobile phone and laptop help me to do my work both on the road and at home." says Clarkson. Today many people can check e-mails, send messages, or surf the Web, using their mobile phones.
  Tina Fang is studying photography in New York City. "Some of these gadgets are expensive, but they can save your money in the long run. I have a digital camera. I can use it to take eighty pictures and shoot video (record an image onto video) at the same time. I listen to music on my MP3 player, and I can download and read books on it, too. I use the camera and MP3 for both learning and fun."
  It's now 9:45. Steve Clarkson gets an e-mails from his 17-year- old sister. She has a gadget that lets her send e-mails, play games, and take notes. She is in class right now. "I e-mailed her back. I told her to stop playing, and pay attention," laughs Clarkson. "These gadgets are fun, but sometimes they can distract (分散注意力) people, too."
19.  I was on a train in Switzerland. The train came to a stop and the conductor's (乘务员的) voice over the loudspeaker delivered a message in German, Italian, and French. I'd made the mistake of not learning any of those languages before my vacation.
  Everyone started getting off the train and an old woman saw that I was confused and stressed. She could speak some English and told me that an accident had happened on the tracks(轨道)She asked me where I was trying to get to, then went and talked to some workers, and came back to tell m that we'd have to hop trains three or four times to get there.
  I was really glad she was heading the same way because it would have been impossible for me to figure it out on my own. So we went from one train station to the next, getting to know each other along the way.
She was really the sweetest woman. It was a 2. 5-hour journey in total, and when we made it to the final destination, we got off and said our goodbyes. I had made it just in time to catch my train to Rome. She told me she had a train to catch as well. I asked her how much farther she had to go and it turned out that her home was two hours back the other way.
  She had jumped from train to train and traveled the whole way just to make sure that I made it. I was in shock. A woman spent her whole day sitting on trains and taking her hours away from her home just to help out a confused tourist visiting her country.
  No matter how many countries I visit, I'll always say the most beautiful country in the world is Switzerland.
pronunciation / living / saved/ lively / leading into / looking into
