Class 3A recently wrote about their experiences in school. Read an example below and then take the quiz afterwards to test your comprehension:
High School Life
According to my memory, my high school life was dark. My high school’s name was Pei Ying High School in Taishan, China. This school was divided into two schools. One was a vocational high school, one was a general high school. The vocational high school students didn’t have to study very hard. They had a lot of free time to play, go shopping and try to fall in love. The general high school students studied very hard. They didn’t have free time to play, go shopping, or fall in love. I was in the general high school.
This school was strict. Every Monday and Tuesday, the students needed to wear uniforms. The uniforms were white and green. There was an eagle on the back of the jacket. The general high school students’ ultimate goal was the College Entrance Examination. There was no fun, only boring study and endless practice. As a high school student, learning was my primary task, and I had to spend most of my time on it. Sometimes learning made me feel depressed and even crazy.
My class time was from Monday to Friday from 6:40 am to 10:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm. Every four weeks, there was a weekend without classes. On that weekend, I left school and went back home, then on Sunday evening I went back to school because I had class on Sunday evening.
Finally, my high school life was boring and dark. No weekend, no holiday. Only studying, still studying.
