It can be difficult to get started at a new school. The key to making new friends is to be brave and take steps every day towards your goal.
1 ． Try to notice who has friendly eyes and a kind smile. Pick out at least 5 people who you think might make a good friend. Try saying hello to them every day for a week and see how they respond( 回应 ). What you are doing is showing them that you are interested in getting to know them. 2 ． Once you have gotten a pleasant response from someone to your saying hello, you can approach ( 接近 ) that person and find out more about them. Begin by introducing yourself and saying where you moved from, and asking them a question. 3 ． But ideally ( 理想地 ), you want to find out what they do in their free time. The secret to success is to find someone who you can have a fun conversation with.
4 ． It means that you like to do similar things that they like to do. It's okay if not everyone is a match for you. Don't worry about it. Just move on and keep trying. One good friend is perhaps what everyone would like at least. 5 ．
A ． Start with people you already know.
B ． The question can be about anything.
C ． If you find even more than that, that's really great.
D ． Good friendships are often based on shared interests.
E.Start by noticing who in your class looks interesting to you.
F.Once you introduce yourself, the other person will usually do the same.
G.Their response will let you know who might be interested in getting to know you.

It’s school time again! You’re probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things: new teachers, new friends and even a new school. Luckily, these new worries only stay for a little while. Let’s find out more about going to a new school.
Most teachers kick off the new school year by introducing themselves and talking about all the things you’ll be doing that year. Some teachers give students a chance to tell something about themselves to the rest of the class, too. When teachers do the talking on the first day, they often go over classroom rules and school rules so you’ll know what’s allowed and what’s not. Please pay close attention.
You might already know a lot of people in your class on the first day, but it’s a great day to make new friends, so try to say hello to kids you know and new ones that you don’t. Make the first move and you’ll be glad you did, and so will your new friends!
Seeing old friends can make the first day an exciting one. You can make the day special by wearing clothes that you really like. Maybe you got a great T-shirt on one of your vacations, or a pair of shoes. It also can make you feel good to be prepared and have all the things you need, such as pencils, folders, and whatever else you’ll be needing. But make sure that you pack them the night before in case you don’t have time in the morning.

If English means endless new words, difficult grammar and sometimes strange pronunciation, you are wrong. Haven’t you noticed that you have become smarter since you started to learn a language?
According to a new study by a British university, learning a second language can lead to an increase in your brain power. Researchers found that learning other languages changes grey matter. This is the area of the brain which processes information. It is similar to the way that exercise builds muscles.
The study also found the effect is greater when the younger people learn a second language. A team led by Dr. Andrea Mechelli, from London University, took a group of Britain people who only spoke English. They were compared with a group of “early bilinguals” who had learnt a second language before the age of five, as well as a number of later learners.
Scans showed that grey matter density in the brain was greater in bilinguals than in people without a second language. But the longer a person waited before mastering a new language, the smaller the difference was.
“Our findings suggest that the structure of the brain is changed by the experience of learning a second language,” said the scientists. It means that the change itself increases the ability to learn.
Professor Dylan Vaughan Jones of the University of Wales has researched the link between bilingualism and math skill. “Having two languages gives you two windows on the world and makes the brain more flexible,” he said. “You are actually going beyond language and have a better understanding of different ideas.”
The findings were matched in a study of native Italian speakers who had learned English as a second language between the ages of 2 and 34. Reading, writing and comprehension were all tested. The results showed that the younger they started to learn, the better. “Studying a language means you get an entrance to another world,” explained the scientists.

There are many kinds of friends. Some are always 1 you, but don’t understand you. Some say only a few words to you, but understand you. Many people will step in your life, but only 2 friends leave footprints( 脚 印 ).
I shall always recall( 回 忆 ) the autumn and the girl with the 3 . She will always bring back the special friendship between us.
It was the golden season. I could see the yellow leaves 4 with the cool 5 . In such a season, I liked walking alone on the roads covered with leaves, 6 to the sound of them.
Autumn is a 7 season and life is uninteresting. The free days always got me 8 . But one day, the sound of a violin 9 into my ears like a stream flowing in the mountains. I was so surprised that I jumped to see what it was. A young girl, standing in the wind, was 10 in playing her violin.
I had 11 seen her before. The music was so nice that I listened quietly. Lost in the music, I didn’t know that I had been 12 there for so long but my existence( 存 在 ) did not seem to disturb her.
Leaves were still falling. Every day she played the violin at the corner of the building 13 I went downstairs to watch her performance. I was the only listener. The autumn seemed no longer lonely and life became 14 . 15 we didn’t know each other, I thought we were already good friends.
Autumn was nearly over. One day, when I was listening carefully, the sound suddenly 16 . To my astonishment( 惊讶 ), the girl came over to me. “You must like music from the violin.” she said.
“Yes, and you play very well. Why did you stop?” I asked.
A 17 expression appeared on her face and I could feel something unusual.
“I came here to see my grandmother, but now I must leave.” she said, “I once played very badly. It was your listening every day that 18 me.”
“In fact, it was your playing 19 gave me a meaningful autumn.” I answered, “Can we be friends?”
The girl smiled, and so did I. I never heard her play again in my life. I no longer went down stairs to listen to her. Only thick leaves were left behind. But I will always remember the fine figure ( 身 影 ) of the girl. She is like a 20 — so short, so real, like a shooting star giving off so much light that makes the night beautiful.
