Many of you have been “bilingual talents (双语人才)” for years. We are not talking 49 English, but your local dialect (方言) and Putonghua.
Zhang Yaoyi, 14, from Shanghai, is such a talent. “Since kindergarten time, I’ve spoken Shanghai dialect at home, but Putonghua in school,” she said.
China encourages the 50 of Putonghua in classrooms. And students find it natural to speak Putonghua even during class breaks.
A 51 in 2011 showed that only 60 percent of Shanghai students could fully understand their local dialect. Many people are 52 . “The local culture is dying if a dialect is no longer popular” said a famous teacher. “The most vivid (生动的) words and expressions are all born of dialects,” he added. Zhang Yaoyi 53 it. She finds it strange to use Putonghua for some words.
Some cities have taken action to 54 dialects now. Since 2008, some primary schools in Guangzhou have asked students to speak the Guangdong dialect one day a week. Starting from this year, 20 Shanghai kindergartens encourage children to speak their dialect during breaks.

Note-taking is a skill that can help you do well in all your schoolwork. It can make you confident when you are studying. But unluckily, most students don’t know how to take notes.
★Write down key facts. If your teacher writes notes on the blackboard, that’s great. You can copy them or write down the most important facts of all in class. Different teachers do things differently. For example, some teachers may focus on (关注) lots of dates and facts in class, but they only write the important ones on the blackboard. Other teachers may not write anything down, but they may say something important again and again.
★Ask. Don’t be afraid to ask your teacher to repeat (重复说) what you miss. If your teacher speaks too fast and you can’t follow what he is saying, you can ask him after class.
★Compare. Comparing your notes with your classmates’ can be good for your learning. It can also help you and your classmates correct (纠正) some mistakes.
★Organize. Note-taking also needs organization. Keep notes for each subject in one notebook, so that you can find everything easily when a test comes.
★Good note-taking takes time. If you decide to recopy your notes every evening, you’ll surely have less time to watch TV. But you’ll save time in the coming test.

Listening to songs is a great way to learn English. Here are a few reasons.
66__________ And when you are enjoying yourself, you learn without even realizing it. The best thing is that there are so many good songs in English and there are so many kinds of music, including pop, country, R&B, rock, soul and so on. Let David Bowie, Madonna, The Beatles, Alicia Keys…be your teachers!
67__________ Just take your MP3 player with your favorite tracks(乐曲) and press “play” And you can listen to them whenever and wherever you want, so you can learn English while you're walking, driving, doing sports or relaxing on the sofa.
6 While you're listening to songs, you are raising your awareness(意识) of language structures(语言结构). And you're seeing how the structures are formed and used.[X§K]
6 And after singing along to the songs several times, all those phrases and expressions will become firm in fixed in your long-term memory. Then later you'll find that you use them naturally when you're speaking or writing.
70__________ For example, the song American Pie is about the 1959 plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bapper, which was an important event in US history.
So, load up your MP3 player, put on your headphones and press “play”!
