An extra 30 minutes in the morning will make a difference. As long as you go to bed on time, waking up 30 minutes earlier should seem natural after just a few days. Use this time to think, shower and eat breakfast.
Plan a realistic day.
Writing things down means you don't have to worry about forgetting to do them. __4__ Write down anything that cannot be put off to the following day.

2．G 根据此段的标题“Get a good night's sleep.”可知，晚上要休息好，那么下文就会探讨每晚睡多长时间是合适的，故选G，意思是“大多数人每晚需要7到8个小时的睡眠”。
3．E 根据此段中的“An extra 30 minutes in the morning will make a difference.”可知，早上额外的30分钟会产生一定的影响，那么此段谈论的应该是早上要早起，故选E，意思是“早上要早起30分钟”。
4．C 根据空前的“Writing things down means you don't have to worry about forgetting to do them.”可知，写下这些事情意味着你不必担心会忘了做它们，那么文章接下来应该说不要把一些不必要做的事装在大脑中，故选C。
5．B 根据此段中的“Make sure you manage your time better so that you have time to do something you love on a daily basis.”可知，管理好你的时间以便你每天都有时间去做一些你喜欢的事情，故选B，意思是“每天安排点儿你喜欢做的事”。

The wildest trip for a freeflyer is falling “head down”. Falling “head down” requires a great deal of control, which means __7__ (travel) not only fast but also steadily. Even the slightest movement has a great effect on your direction.
They wear the amusing jumpsuits, strange helmets and smaller parachutes. __8__ (actual), their parachutes are about one quarter the size of the traditional skydivers' parachutes. It is only in the last few years __9__ freeflying has gained some real public __10__ (accept)．
1．an 考查冠词。at a/an...speed意为“以一种……的速度”，因awesome以元音音素开头，故此处应填an。
3．in 考查介词。in a different direction是固定结构，意为“朝着一个不同的方向”。
4．is based 考查动词的时态和语态。根据语境可知，此处应用一般现在时，freeflying与base为动宾关系，故此处应填is based。
7．travel(l)ing 考查固定用法。mean doing(sth.)表示“意味着做某事”。
I can never forget the day then I went to have a piano test. Unluckily, an examiner who appeared rather serious and strict was sitting in the room. Known that many students had failed the test, I felt too nervous that I wondered whether I could pass it. Then it was my turns and my heart almost skipped a beat. However, when I entered the room, it suddenly occurs to me that I could take this as a rare and precious chance to challenge me. Very to my surprise, the teacher, satisfying with my performance, gave me high marks. Whatever we face with, we should try our best to handle it. Only doing this can we succeed in the end.

Dear Mr. Smith，
I'm writing to sign up for one of the courses that you will offer.
Frankly speaking, I think I'm doing well in English because I always get good marks in the written English tests. But I'm not so good at spoken English, and that is what troubles me most. Besides, I find it hard for me to talk with native English speakers. So I decide to enter the spoken English course so that I can communicate with others freely and fluently in English. I promise I'll try my best to learn it well.
I would appreciate it if you could approve my application.
