    Dear Doctor,

        My husband and I got married in 1990 and for the first ten years of our marriage, I was very happy to stay home and bring up our three children. Then four years ago, our youngest child went to school and I thought I might go back to work. 

        My husband agreed and helped me to make my decision. He said he thought I could be a great success in business. After several weeks of job hunting, I found my present job—working for a small public company. At first, my husband was very proud of me and would tell his friends, “My clever little wife can run that company.”

        But as his joke was becoming true, my husband stopped talking to me about my job. I have received several promotions (升职) and pay increases, and I can earn more money than he can. I can buy my own clothes and new car.

        But things begin to change. My husband is not happy. My husband is very unkind to me in front of our friends. For the first time in our marriage, I think our marriage may come to an end. I love my husband very much, and I don’t want him to feel bad, but I also love my job. I think I can be a good wife and a working woman, but I don’t know how. Can’t you give me some advice? Will I have to choose one or the other or can I keep both my husband and my new career? 

        Please help me. 

    Mary

    Traveling to a new country isn’t as simple as just buying a ticket and boarding a plane. In fact, it can be easy for an awkward situation to occur. Different customs can often cause misunderstandings and even trouble. So an article in the Daily Mail highlighted taboos in certain countries. Let’s take a look.

        France  When visiting France, you’d better not be caught cutting your lettuce with a knife and fork. It’s an insult to the chef and suggests that the salad hasn’t been prepared correctly. The correct way to eat lettuce in France is to fold it with your fork to make it fit in your mouth.

        Italy  It’s actually best to be a little less friendly than usual when you visit Italy. It’s considered strange to make small talk with strangers, as the locals are reserved. Too much familiarity from a stranger can be seen as threatening, so keep greetings short.

    Mexico  In Mexico, bringing an expensive gift to someone’s home is a no-no, as it could be seen as a tribe. Something simple like flowers and chocolates would be accepted. But you should avoid taking along marigolds (金盏花) or red flowers, because in Mexican culture, they symbolize death and can be associated

    with witchcraft(巫术).

       Germany  You have to be careful with gifts of flowers in Germany too. Steer clear of carnations(康乃馨)as they are used for funerals. And an even number is considered unlucky. So if you want to give your host flowers, ask them what their favorite flowers are before your visit. And be sure to bring an odd number.

    Many people think a telephone is a necessity. But I think it is a pest (有害的事物) and a time waste. Very often you find it impossible to escape from it. If you have a telephone in your own house, you will admit that it tends to ring when you least want it to ring;  when you are asleep, or in the middle of a meal or a conversation or when you are just going out, or when you are in your bath. Are you strong-minded enough to ignore it?  You are not. You think there may be some important news or message for you. I can assure you that if a message is really important it will reach you sooner or later. Have you ever rushed crippling from the bath, or chewing from the table, or dazed from the bed, only to be told that you are a wrong number?

     But you will say, you need not have your name printed in the telephone directory, and you can have a telephone which is only usable for outgoing calls. Besides, you will say, isn’t it important to have a telephone in case of sudden emergency—illness, accident, or fire?  Of course, you are right, but here in a thickly populated country like England, one is seldom far from a telephone in case of dreadful necessity.

     I think perhaps I had better try to justify (证明……是有理的) myself by trying to prove that what I like is good. I admit that in different circumstances—if I were a wealthy and powerful businessperson, for instance, or badly ill and had to lie in bed, I might find a telephone a necessity. But then if I were a taxi driver I should find a car as necessity. Let me put it another way: there are two things for which the English seem to show particular talent: one is mechanical invention, the other literature. My own business happens to be with the use of words but I see I must now stop using them, for I have had just been handed a slip of paper to say that somebody is waiting to speak to me on the telephone. I think I had better answer it. After all, one never knows, it may be something important.

    Title: The (76)___________

    Many people

    It is (77) ________when one wants to make a call, especially in time  of (78) ________.

    A way of thinking, a way of living

    Zen Buddhism began in China in the sixth century and places great importance on work, helping others and meditation (deep concentrated thought). Teaching with stories is a common practice in Zen Buddhism. The purpose of the stories is to teach Buddhism a proper understanding of the universe, by showing that they need to find and concentrate on what is most important.

    One example of a Zen story is “Chasing Two Rabbits”. In this story, a martial arts(武术) student said to his teacher, “I want to improve my knowledge of martial arts. In addition to learning from you, I would like to study another style with a different teacher. What do you think about this?” The teacher answered, “The hunger who chases two rabbits at the same time catches neither one.” This story teaches us that trying to get everything will get you nothing. It also shows us that it is better to focus one’s energy on one task at a time.

    Another Zen story is “Practice Makes Perfect”. This is the story of a person studying singing. His teacher was strict and made him sing the same part of the song he was studying over and over again. The student became upset and ran away. One night, he came to a place where a singing competition was being held. He entered the competition and sang the only tune he knew. He was praised and later became a famous performer. This shows us that hard work brings good results. Like the first story, it also teaches that it is better to focus one’s energy on one thing and to become an expert in it.

    In the story “Empty Your Cup”, a university professor visited a Zen master to talk about Zen. The master served the professor a cup of tea and kept pouring until the tea flowed out of the cup. The professor could not help saying, “Stop! No more tea will go in!” The master answered, “I cannot show you Zen until you empty your cup.” From this story, we see that we cannot learn something if we think we already know everything, and that we should always have an open mind to new things.

    Zen stories mean different things to different people, but they all teach us something new.

    请根据短文内容,完成下列表格,每个空格只填一个单词。

    Introduction

    Zen Buddhism:

    1.       Began in China in the (51) ______ century.

    2.       Places great importance on work, (52)______ others and meditation.

    3.       Uses stories to help Buddhists (53) ___________ the universe.

    Zen stories mean different things to different people, but all of us can learn something new from them.

    Men have always wondered about the earth they live on and about the ①_____ above them.

           When early men looked at the night sky, they asked themselves a lot of questions. They looked at the moon, and wondered what this strange bright object in the sky was. They did not understand why it changed its shape from night to night. They looked at the stars and planets. They also wondered why some of them changed their positions, while others did not.

           ②他们也思考地球的形状。 Most early people believed the earth was flat.

           ③In different parts of the world, there were different ideas about the universe. The ancient Greeks were the first people to study the universe more scientifically. In the sixth century BC Pythagoras put forward the idea that the world was round. However, he could not explain why people at the bottom of the world did not fall off.

          It was not until the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that scientists found the answers to some important questions. ④With the help of Galileo’s telescope, people could see the sky more clearly, and find the positions of the stars and planets. Finally in 1665, Isaac Newton explained to the world what gravity (重力) was and people at last understood why they did not fall off the earth.

    The Ant and the Grasshopper(蚱蜢)

                 In a field one summer’s day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to her heart’s content. An Ant passed by, carrying with great effort an ear of corn. He was taking it to his nest.

                 “Why not come and chat with me,” said the Grasshopper, “instead of carrying and toiling in that way?”

                 “I am helping to lay up some food for the winter,” said the Ant, “and recommend you to do the same.”

                 “Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper, “We have got plenty of food at present.” But the Ant went on his way and continued the toil.

                 When a cold, frosty winter day came, the Ant was dragging out some of the corn which he had laid up in the summer time, to dry it. The Grasshopper, half consumed with hunger, begged the Ant to give her a morsel of it to preserver her life. “What were you doing,” said the Ant, “this last summer?” “Oh,” said the Grasshopper, “I was not idle. I kept singing all the summer long.” The Ant said, laughing and shutting up his granary: “Since you could sing all summer, you may dance all winter.”

                 Winter finds out what summer lays by.

    We all need physical exercise. Exercise uses up food we eat and keeps the body energetic. It works your muscles and makes your heart work hard so as to send blood to your muscles. So, exercise makes your heart and muscles strong. Exercise also makes you feel refreshed. If you take regular exercises, you will stay happy and healthy.

    Some Western countries, such as the United States, have problems with exercise. In the US, many people lack exercise because it is hard for them. People have to work from dawn till dusk, so they don't have time to take exercise. They work in office buildings sitting in chairs all day long in front of computers. They cannot get much exercise sitting at desk passively.

    Some Westerners can get exercise walking from their homes to work. However, the majority of people cannot do this. It is too far from their homes to their offices. They have no choice but to drive to work. In fact, some have to drive one or two hours to their offices. This is unfavorable in two ways. First, these people don't have a chance to exercise because they are sitting in their cars for two to four hours each day. Second, driving is challenging especially in rush hours and calls for too much attention. It makes a person very tired. So, when these people arrive home at night, they don't have the desire to take exercise after work.

    Today, many people in the West are overweight, which causes health problems for them. Doctors say exercise can help people both lose weight and improve their health. So many people are trying to get more exercise. But it takes time to change, and when people don't see a difference right away, they will be discouraged and stop exercising.

The National Tourism Administration has made a list of tourists' worst behaviors, including littering, line-jumping, taking off shoes and socks in public, speaking loudly and smoking in non-smoking areas.

      We are going to improve the inner being of every Chinese citizen. “Traveling manners are a turning point.” said an official. And changes have begun to appear. Most people minded their behaviors during this Spring Festival holiday, according to the National Tourism Administration. They kept their voice down, waited in line and respected local rules.

      Doctors say anger can be an extremely damaging emotion, unless you learn how to deal with it. They warn that anger can lad to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer.

      Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel from time to time. Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way. Some burst with anger, and scream and yell . But others keep their anger inside. They can not or will not express it. This is called repressing anger.

         For years many doctors thought that repressing anger was more dangerous to a person's health than expressing it. They said that when a person is angry, the brain releases the same hormones(荷尔蒙) . They speed the heart rate, raise blood pressure, or sugar into the blood, etc. In general the person feels excited and ready to act.

         Some doctors say that both repressing and expressing anger can be dangerous. They believe that those who express anger violently may be more likely to develop heart disease, and they believe that those who keep their anger inside may face a greater danger of high blood pressure.

         Doctors say the solution is learning how to deal with anger. They say the first step is to admit that you are angry and to recognize the real cause of the anger, then decide if the cause is serious enough to get angry about. If it is, they say, "Do not express your anger while angry. Wait until your anger has cooled down and you are able to express yourself calmly and reasonably."

         Doctors say that a good way to deal with anger is to find humor in the situation that has made you angry. They said that laughter is much healthier than anger.

    76. What’s the author’s purpose by writing this passage?(No more than 15 words)

    77. What’s the meaning of the underlined word “repressing”?(No more than 5 words)

    78. According to the passage, what are the two common ways for people to express their anger?(No more than 20 words)

    79. Why do doctors warn us no to get angry easily?(No more than 15 words)

    80. How can you deal with anger successfully in your daily life?(No more than 20 words)

    Most people think that making a film is exciting. In fact, sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t. Earlier this year, I worked in a new film. It was about a bomb threat on a big British ship. Two hundred people were needed to act as the passengers in the film. I was one of them.

      Before we left, we were wanted to bring some warm clothes. These were necessary because the ship was going to spend the whole 16 days sailing in bad weather.

      Then the day came and we sailed out of Dover. The boat had on board the film crew, the director, the actors and actresses including Brinksley Meers, who acted the leading role, and us-200 amateur(业余的) extras.

      People came for different purposes. Some wanted to meet Brinksley Meers in person. Others were curious to see how a film was made. A housewife with her three children came for free holiday and a bit of adventure.

      During the voyage, a lot of people were very seasick. And although the work was very interesting, it was also very hard. We often worked all day on one scene, performing it again and again under the hot lights. In the evenings, there were drinks in the bar, but most people were so tired that they went to bed early. The next day often began at 6:30 in the morning, sometimes with breakfast being filmed.

      When the ship finally returned to port, most people had enjoyed the trip, but were also so tired that they at least needed a week’s holiday. Answer the following questions:

    71. Which role did the author act  in the film?

    ________________________________________________________.

    72. Why the film crew were asked to bring some warm clothes?

    ________________________________________________________.

    73.Who acted the leading role?

    ________________________________________________________.

    74.Why the author said “they at least needed a week’s holiday”?

    ________________________________________________________.

    75.Can you infer author’s purpose of writing this article?

    The results of the research, by the name of Longevity Project were released recently, throwing new light on what we can do to live longer. Based on the new information and modern statistics to study participants gathered across eight years, Dr. Howard Friedman exposes the secret to achieving good health and a long life. It was found that worry-free characters, far from being longevity-friendly as traditional wisdom assumed, died younger than the types interpreted as calm and easy-going. There is a connection between happiness and longevity, but the elements of happiness are not unlimited leisure, positivity and absence of stress. In fact, the opposite maybe more contributive. Longevity is far more than genetics, diet, or exercise. It is closely connected with emotions. Staying married happily is the magic key to a long life, especially if you are a woman.

    Another factor is our attitude towards health. We assume that modern medical advantages can deliver us from the consequence of our unhealthy act and see no reason to change our careless gestures towards ageing as the years fly by until something, sometimes the terrible disease, wakes us up. But a positive by-product of age blindness is the appetite for work, which remains strong and may even sharpen as we seek ways to keep death in a distance. And the state of being at work --working the hardest-- would appear to enhance the prospect for a longest life.

    As for whether economic condition determine how we live and for how long, whose effect on life expectancy is not so evident on current technical level, the study detects some differences in health conditions that at first glance may be caused by the gap that does exercise its influence, but mainly on a person’s self judgment.

    On the current stage, one thing can be sure. Various factors work in determining how long we live. Only some of these can be somewhat influenced at a personal level which makes it even more important to know what those facts are, what measure can be taken to extend life expectancy within our power.

    Today I’d like to give you some idea about how life at an American university or college might be different from the way it is in your country. To be sure, the student body on a U.S. campus is a pretty diverse group of people. First of all, although most students start college at around the age of 18, you will see students in their 30s and 40s and even occasionally in their 60s and 70s. Students on a U.S. campus come from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Many students work at least part-time, and some of them work full-time. Some of the students live in dormitories on campus, some have their own apartments usually with other students, and others live at home. Some colleges and universities have students from many different racial and ethnic minorities. Some schools have a fairly large foreign student population. So you can see that one meets all kinds of people on a U.S. college or university campus.

    Now that you have some general ideas of differences in the student body population. I’d like to talk a few minutes about what I think an average student is. Foreign students are often surprised at how poorly prepared American students are when they enter a university. Actually, at very selective schools the students are usually very well prepared, but at less selective schools, they may not be as well prepared as students in your country are. Schools in the States simply admit a lot more students than is usual in most other countries. Also, most young American university students have not traveled in other countries and are not very well-versed in international matters. Foreign students usually find them friendly but not very well-informed about their countries or cultures.

    What kind of academic experiences will this so-called “average” student have? The average undergraduate student takes five classes a semester and is in class about 15 hours a week. If he or she takes a class that has a laboratory, this will require two or three more hours. Many introductory undergraduate classes are given in large lectures of 100 or more students. However, many of these classes will have small discussion groups of 15 to 20 students that meet once a week. In these smaller groups, a teaching assistant will lead a discussion to help clarify points in the lectures. Other kinds of classes ---- for example, language classes --- will be much smaller so that students can practice language. In general, American professors are informal and friendly with their students, and, as much as possible, they expect and invite participation in the form of discussion. A large amount of reading and other work is often assigned to be done outside class, and students are expected to take full responsibility for completing these assignments and asking questions in class about those areas they don’t understand. As a rule of thumb, students spend two to three hours preparing for each hour they spend in class. American professors often encourage their students to visit them during office hours, especially if the students are having problems in the class.  (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TEN WORDS.)

    78. __________, various socioeconomic backgrounds and large foreign student population are the four examples to show how diverse the student body on a U.S. campus is.

    79. Why are most American college students found to be poorly-knowledgeable about foreign counties and cultures?

    Because they_____________________.

           Sports can help you keep fit and get in touch with nature. However, whether you are in the mountains, in the waves, or on grassland, you should be aware that your sport of choice might have great influence on the environment.

          Some sports are resource-hungry. Golf, as you may know, eats up not only large areas of countryside, but also tons of water. Besides, all sorts of chemicals and huge amounts of energy are used to keep its courses in good condition. This causes major environmental problems. For example, in the dry regions of Portugal and Spain, golf is often held responsible for serious water shortage in some local areas.

           There are many environment-friendly sports. Power walking is one of them that you could take up today. You don’t need any special equipment except a good pair of shoes; and you don’t have to worry about resources and your purse. Simple and free, power walking can also keep you fit. If you walk regularly, it will be good for your heart and bones. Experts say that 20 minutes of power walking daily can make you feel less anxious, sleep well and have better weight control.

           Whatever sport you take up, you can make it greener by using environment-friendly equipment and buying products made from recycled materials. But the final goal should be “green gyms”. They are better replacements for traditional health clubs and modern sports centers. Members of green gyms play sports outdoor, in the countryside or other open spaces. There is no special requirement for you to start your membership. And best of all, it’s free.

    (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN 12 WORDS.)

    73. According to the passage, how can we benefit from sports?

    _________________________________________________________________________.

    74. In order to keep a gold course in good condition, ______________________________are needed.

           Newspapers are the most traditional media. The introduction of the Internet results in a new kind of newspaper. That is called digital newspaper. Unlike the traditional newspapers issued by using print on the paper, digital newspapers publish on the Internet. This kind of newspaper is not only the digital edition of paper newspapers. It contains more technical devices.

           Because the Internet creates a special condition, there are four key changes of digital newspapers compared with traditional newspapers. First of all, digital newspapers are not updated day by day. If any news happens, there will be correlative reports on the newspaper websites immediately. The instant update is the most important development of contemporary newspapers caused by the Internet. In addition, it can also include hyperlinks(超链接). It is another advantage of digital newspapers. Readers can access another concerned website through these hyperlinks. It is more convenient for readers to obtain detailed information. Some online newspaper websites have a BBS (Bulletin Board System), databases and other distinctive services. Thus different from traditional newspapers, digital newspapers can exchange information with readers. McAdams(1995) claimed that unlike traditional newspapers, the readers could expect some feedbacks of online newspapers. Another change is electronic newspapers can extend the scope(范围) traditional newspapers could cover. A case in point is there is a website which contains almost 200 newspapers from 55 countries. Anyone, who wants to see some newspapers are not published in his area, can just read them online. Ultimately, there have been some digital newspapers with Multi-media such as visible or audible reports in it. Anyhow, the changes of newspapers are obvious and available. Newspapers are and will be developed to more potential because of the introduction of the Internet.

    With 26 British prime ministers, 58 Nobel prize winners, over 150 Olympic medals and a "notable alumni (校友)" list that reads like a historical hall of fame, the institutions of Oxford and Cambridge – collectively known as Oxbridge – are seen, by many, as the dream alma mater (母校).

    However, as admission season dawns, and the October 15 deadline for Oxbridge inches ever closer, many students may wonder what makes the UK's top two institutions so special. Why does Oxbridge symbolize the academic dream for so many? Do the universities deserve the reputation they hold in the minds of so many teenagers, parents and academics?

    There is no doubt that both Oxford and Cambridge have a long standing history of academic world. Yet, what is often overlooked is the strong reputation of countless other universities in the UK.

    A simple click on Google can tell students that the London School of Economics and Political Sciences, for example, has over 18 Nobel Prize winners and 50 world leaders. University College London attracts students from 150 countries and has exchange and research links with nearly 300 overseas universities. Manchester University has the largest student union of all UK universities and boasts alumni such as Niels Bohr and James Chadwick.

    I suddenly realized the Oxbridge effect when I was out in London with friends. I met some new people and was surprised by their reaction when I told them I was going to study at Cambridge. One person even got down on one knee and kissed my hand.

    From then on, I told people I was going on a gap year. Although I knew that Oxbridge provides a good education, I had never expected to get such extreme reactions. It was this that made me start to feel uncomfortable about the way that Oxbridge is viewed.

    The Cambridge Tab, the university's student newspaper, has argued that what makes Cambridge special is the fact that the students are told that they are unique and superior to the rest, so they believe it.

     For students applying now, yes, you will receive a world class education at Oxbridge, but you will find the same at numerous other universities throughout the country. Every time you hear about the brilliance of Oxbridge, consider that just because many believe, it does not have to be so.

    78. The examples of the London School of Economics and Political Sciences, University College London and Manchester University serve to illustrate the point that _________________________________in the UK.

    79. According to the writer’s own experience, we can find that people ___________________ the students at the Oxbridge.

    80. How did the writer avoid over-reaction from people to her admission into Cambridge?

    ______________________________________________________________________

    81. According to Cambridge student newspaper, what Cambridge students are viewed by other people?

    Many years ago, I was eating (chicken, as I recall) at Kentucky Fried Chicken. I was watching a little child (maybe a couple years old), whose mother (it would seem) was waiting in line to order food. The child walked up to a curtain, pulled it back, and was delighted to find a blank wall, no windows. The child tried to call his mother’s attention to this situation. And the mother said, “Get away from there.”

    To me, the child represented all of the people who are curious about the world, who delight in new discoveries. The mother represented the multitudes (众多) of other people, who are not curious, whose minds are no longer alive to that sort of thing. You and I know that curtains and windows go together, but not always. We would not be surprised to find a blank wall behind a curtain. But, we are curious and childlike, aren’t we? We want to know things, things that other people know, and things that no one has ever known.

    It was a delight to watch this child. I may have enjoyed the child’s discovery more than the child did. I was saddened to think about the mother. Of course, she may have been a wonderful person, with a wonderful mind. She just may not have been in tune with her child, at that moment. But, I wondered if this child would be stifled (抑制), worn down, like so many, and become an adult without any childlike thoughts. That saddened me.

    To my mind, the two golden, childlike properties of a brain are curiosity and creativity. Many adult activities (jobs, hobbies, pastimes) use one or the other of these properties, in particular the sciences (mainly curiosity) and the arts (mainly creativity).

       

    78. Why did the child try to call his mother’s attention?

    79. To the writer, the child represented the people who _______________________.

    There are good reasons to cherish our friendships. Some years ago a public-opinion research firm, Roper Starch Worldwide, asked 2007 people to name one or two things that said the most about themselves. Friends far outranked homes, jobs, clothes and cars.

    “Ironically, says Brant R. Burleson, professor of communication at Purdue University

    in West Lafayette, Ind., “the better friends you are, the more likely you’ll face conflicts. And the outcome can be what you don’t want—an end to the relationship.

    The good news is that most troubled friendships can be mended.

    Swallow your pride. It wasn’t easy, but that’s what Denise Moreland of Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii did when a friendship turned sour. For nearly four months, Moreland, 45, had watched over Nora Huizenga’s two young daughters, who were living with their

    father on the base, while Huizenga, 40, completed training as a dental hygienist in Nevada. “I felt honored to be asked to step in, Moreland says.

    “When Huizenga returned at Christmas, Moreland recalls, “I had so much to tell her, but she never called.

    One daughter had a birthday party, but Moreland wasn’t invited. I felt like Id been used,” she says. At first, Moreland swore to avoid Huizenga. Then she decided to swallow her pride and let her friend know how she felt. Huizenga admitted that she’d been so worried about being separated from her family that she’d been blind to what her friend had done to help her. Today she says, I would never have figured out what happened if Denise hadn’t called me on it.

    When a friend hurts you, your instinct is to protect yourself. But that makes it harder to solve problems, explains William Wilmot, author of Relational Communication. “Most of us are relieved when differences are brought out in the open.

    Apologize when youre wrong—even if you’ve also been wronged. But over the course of a friendship, even the best people make mistakes. “We don’t think clearly when we’re arguing, says Michael Lang, a professional mediator (调解人) in Pittsburgh. Instead, says Lang, ask: “What’s going on? This doesn’t make sense.

    See things from your friend’s point of view. Sociologists Rebecca Adams Rosemary and Blieszner interviewed 53 adults who each had many friendships lasting decades. “We were curious how these people managed to sustain strong friendships for so long, says Blieszner. Tolerance is key, the researchers learned. It’s surprising how often a dispute results from a simple misunderstanding, adds psychotherapist Anne Frenkel.

    Accept that friendships change. “Friendships change as our needs and lifestyles change, Wilmot observes.

    Making friends can sometimes seem easy, says Yager. The hard part is keeping the connections strong during the natural ups and downs that affect all relationships. Her suggestion: Consider friendship an honor and a gift, and worth the effort to treasure and

    1Many workplace newbies struggle with the same question: How can they show

    their ability without offending their seniors? Human resources(HR) and education professionals suggest graduates work hard while keeping a modest attitude.

    2Zhang Yu, 23, graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong last year.

    Having majored in English, she got a job at a Beijing-based translation company. Zhang is the only person in her department who knows how to use translation tools, which allow

    her to work much faster than others. She decided not to share her “secret weapon” with

    others.

    3“My colleagues started to ignore me when they found out I was using translation tools to improve my work efficiency”, she says.

    4Zhang had thought her speed would impress her boss. But as it turned out, the boss was not happy with her performance. “He criticized me for showing off and not working well with my colleagues,” Zhang says.

    5For rookies the most important virtue is being humble, says Song Ye, an HR professional at Reed Exhibitions. “Even if you’re more talented than the seniors, you need to show a willingness to learn”, Song says.

    6 The workplace is a new campus for graduates where they learn to cooperate and deal with different people, he says. “Keeping a low profile and learning to work with

    others makes graduates more accessible to colleagues, who in turn can help them blend into the new environment.”

    7This, however, doesn’t mean workplace newbies should hide their strengths,

    says Wang Yimin, a career consultant at Sunward Career Management Consulting Group.

    8 “Updating the boss on your progress not only demonstrates your ability, but also shows you have initiative and good communication skills,” Wang says.
