I am writing to complain about an article in last Monday‟s newspaper, “Schools fail low-income
children”. As the Head teacher of one of the largest junior high, I feel strongly that the article does not
describe our school.
My school has children from many different economic backgrounds, but a large percentage come from lower-income families. Nevertheless, our tests show that the children do well and benefit from the excellent work our teacher do. Last year our school moved from the 24th to 5th place according to
the official assessment by the state government. This clearly not the “failure” that the article suggests.
I would strongly recommend that more careful research should be conducted in the future so that newspaper will more realistically describe the true situation in our school.
Yours sincerely, Joan Gonzales
14. What does the letter tell you about?
A. Different economic background students. B. Achievement of low-income children.

The Legend of the Dwarf
Many hundreds of years ago, there lived an old woman, all alone in a tiny hut. She had no children, and no one to ask after her. The old woman would weep night and day for a child, but of course, with no result. One day she took an egg, wrapped it carefully in cotton cloth, and put it in a corner of her hut. Night and day the old woman looked after the egg, in the hope that maybe it would give her a child. But nothing happened, and every day the old woman grew more and more unhappy.
One morning, as she went to look at the egg, she found that it had broken – and in its shell sat the tiniest, loveliest baby boy that anyone could imagine. The baby saw the old woman and smiled and held out its tiny arms. The old woman was delighted – here at last was the child she had wanted for so long.
The old woman loved the child dearly, and looked after it so carefully and so well, that by the time it was a year old it could walk and talk as well as any grown up. But for some strange reason, no one knows what, the baby stopped growing. He remained as tiny as a one-year old for the rest of his
life. He began to be called the „Dwarf‟.
The old woman did not care. She still loved the baby devotedly. „You will be a great king one
day, my child,‟ she told him, sure that the baby was destined for great things.
One day the old woman said to the Dwarf, „Go to the king‟s palace, my son, and challenge him to test his strength against yours.‟
The Dwarf protested. „How can I challenge the king, mother?‟ he said horrified. „He is greater
and much stronger than I. ‟But the old woman insisted, and the Dwarf was forced to do as she said. The king smiled at the child‟s challenge, and asked him to lift a heavy stone. The Dwarf went
weeping to the old woman. „How can I lift that heavy stone?‟ heasked. „If the king can lift it, so can
you,‟ said the old woman, and sent him back to the palace .And sure enough, the Dwarf was able to
lift the heavy stone.
The king gave him many more tasks to do, but anything the king could do, the Dwarf could do as well.

The world is like your bathroom. The water in the oceans is warm when the sun shines on it. Some of this water goes up into the sky and makes clouds. The wind carries the clouds for hundreds of kilometres. Then the clouds meet cold air in the sky, and we see drops of water. The drops of water are rain.
The rain falls and runs into rivers. Rivers run into oceans. And the water from oceans makes clouds and more rain. So water is always moving from oceans to clouds to rain to rivers to oceans.

Online jobs are selected in part-time employment for many, and some have taken more seriously. A growing number of people are willing to take a job online. Working online has its advantages if we manage effectively. Why not?
It offers flexibility and convenience than no other job can give. We can work from home with minimal investment and get a good income. The idea of adding weight to our pocket and makes life easier and comfortable is the most reassuring.
The reason behind this great opportunity is that every day there are new companies to join. Every day and every minute men are seeking information about everything under the sky of the Internet.
As we know, the Internet is the answer to every question, web sites need to update each section and also add reports on developments that have recently joined. Therefore, it is an expansive space for articles.
There are a number of jobs we can work online. Some of them which strongly recommended are writing, marketing, stock trading, and online education. However we should be very careful because scamming opportunities are always there.
