Reading 1

My name is Wang Kun. Ever since middle school, my sister Wang Wei and I have dreamed about taking a great bike trip. Two years ago she bought an expensive mountain bike and then she persuaded me to buy one. Last year, she visited our cousins, Dao Wei and Yu Hang at their college in Kunming. They are Dai and grew up in western Yunnan Province near the Lancang River, the Chinese part of the river that is called the Mekong River in other countries. Wang Wei soon got them interested in cycling too. After graduating from college, we finally got the chance to take a bike trip. I asked my sister, "Where are we going?" It was my sister who first had the idea to cycle along the entire Mekong River from where it begins to where it ends. Now she is planning our schedule for the trip.更多免费资料请访问:



      I am fond of my sister but she has one serious shortcoming. She can be really stubborn. Although she didn't know the best way of getting to places, she insisted that she organize the trip properly. Now I know that the proper way is always her way. I kept asking her, "When are we leaving and when are we coming back?" I asked her whether she had looked at a map yet. Of course she hadn't; my sister doesn't care about details. So I told her that the source of the Mekong is in Qinghai Province. She gave me a determined look — the kind that said she would not change her mind. When I told her that our journey would begin at an altitude of more than 5,000 metres, she seemed to be excited about it. When I told her the air would be hard to breathe and it would be very cold, she said it would be an interesting experience. I know my sister well. Once she has made up her mind, nothing can change it. Finally, I had to give in.

      Several months before our trip, Wang Wei and I went to the library. We found a large atlas with good maps that showed details of world geography. From the atlas we could see that the Mekong River begins in a glacier on a Tibetan mountain. At first the river is small and the water is clear and cold. Then it begins to move quickly. It becomes rapids as it passes through deep valleys, travelling across western Yunnan Province. Sometimes the river becomes a waterfall and enters wide valleys. We were both surprised to learn that half of the river is in China



   我很喜欢我姐姐,但是她有一个很严重的缺点。她有时确实很固执。尽管她对去某些地方的最佳路线并不清楚,她却坚持要自己把这次旅游安排得尽善尽美。于是,我就知道这个尽善尽美的方式总是她的方式。我不停地问她,“我们什么时候出发?什么时候回来?”我还问她是否看过地图。当然她并没有看过——我的姐姐是不会考虑细节的。于是,我告诉她,湄公河的源头在青海省。她给了我一个坚定的眼神——这种眼神表明她是不会改变主意的。我说,我们的旅行将从5, 000多米的高地出发,这时她似乎显得很兴奋。当我告诉她那里空气稀薄,呼吸困难,而且天气很冷时,她却说这将是一次有趣的经历。我非常了解我的姐姐,她一旦下了决心,什么也不能使她改变。最后,我只好让步了。更多免费资料请访问:


Reading 2

Although it was autumn, the snow was already beginning to fall in Tibet. Our legs were so heavy and cold that they felt like blocks of ice. Have you ever seen snowmen ride bicycles? That's what we looked like? Along the way children dressed in long wool coats stopped to look at us. In the late afternoon we found it was so cold that our water bottles froze. However, the lakes shone like glass in the setting sun and looked wonderful. Wang Wei rode in front of me as usual. She is very reliable and I knew I didn't need to encourage her. To climb the mountains was hard work but as we looked around us, we were surprised by the view. We seemed to be able to see for miles. At one point we were so high that we found ourselves cycling through clouds. Then we began going down the hills. It was great fun especially as it gradually became much warmer. In the valleys colourful butterflies flew around us and we saw many yaks and sheep eating green grass. At one point we had to change our caps, coats, gloves and trousers for T-shirts and shorts.
      In the early evening, we always stop to make camp. We put up our tent and then we eat. After supper Wang Wei put her head down on her pillow and went to sleep but I stayed awake. At midnight the sky became clearer and the stars grew brighter. It was so quiet. There was almost no wind — only the flames of our fire for company. As I lay beneath the stars I thought about how far we had already travelled.
      We will reach Dali in Yunnan Province soon, where our cousins Dao Wei and Yu Hang will join us. We can hardly wait to see them!



Reading Task

Cambodia was in many ways similar to Laos, although it has twice the population. At another inn, we talked with a teacher who told us that half of the people in her country couldn't read or write. Her village couldn't even afford to build a school, so she had to teach outside under a large tent. When we said goodbye, we all felt very lucky to have studied in college. Back on the road, we passed between many hills and forests. Then we came to the plains and entered Phnom Penh (金边), the capital of Cambodia. In many ways it looked like Vientiane and Ho Chi Minh City; it also had wide streets with trees in rows and old French houses. Unlike Vientiane, ships could travel the Mekong River here. In the centre of the city we visited the palace and saw a beautiful white elephant. It can only be seen outside the palace on special days. We ate an early supper and went to see a great temple with floors made of silver.
      The next morning our group slept late. We were very tired from the long bike ride the day before. Cycling in the hills had been difficult. Now our cousins had the chance to make jokes about Wang Wei and me. Perhaps, they said, they were the strong ones! We had lunch at a nice outdoor cafe, then rode out of the city. 更多免费资料请访问:


      Two days later we crossed the border into Vietnam. We began to see many more people, but I wasn't surprised. I read in an atlas before our trip that Vietnam has almost seven times the population of Cambodia. We met a farmer who gave us directions and told us that he grows a new rice crop four times every year so he can feed more people. He also told us that the northern part of his country has many mountains and it is much cooler than here in the south, where it is flat. Although the flat delta made it easier for us to cycle, we got warm very quickly. So we drank lots of water and ate lots of bananas. Soon the delta separated into nine smaller rivers. Two days later, after we had passed thousands of rice fields, we came to the sea. We were tired but also in high spirits: our dream to cycle along the Mekong River had finally come true.
