文章1:Most Americans enjoy moving from place to place very often. In some states only one house in five has people living in it who have been there for more than five years. One may be born in one city, and go to school in another. He may finish his middle school education in two or three cities and attend a college far across the country. And when he has entered business, he may possibly move from job to job. Moving from job to job, or job- hopping, is a very common practice in the United States.

This practice is not good by and large. Yet every chance to change a job offers the worker an opportunity to move up to a higher position and to get better wages. And job-hopping also gives employers—the bosses, the managers the—chance to benefit from the new ideas and skills that different people bring to their firms or factories. Then, most Americans love traveling. People often drive their automobiles 120 to 160 kilometers just to have dinner with a friend or even fly to Europe and back just for watching a football match. It is because of this—the fact that Americans are in constant motion and, in this way, it is also easy for you to become friends with Americans. And the friendship can be close and strong for a while, but then disappears as soon as the individuals move away from each other. But if these people should meet again, even years later, they would be delighted to continue the friendship. So don?t be unhappy when you fail to find lifetime friendships or relationships in the United States.

“Job-hopping” means _______.

A. moving from place to place

B. looking for work

C. hoping to get a job

D. moving from job to job

Why do Americans change their jobs so frequently? Because _______.

A. they have the habits of moving

A. Americans like to make friends but don?t specially attach importance to it

B. it?s impossible to find lifetime friendships or r elationships in the United States

C. Americans ignore friendships and relationships with others

D. Americans make friends just for fun

He had good reason to charge me, he said. And if I wanted to collect money from the person who was responsible for my injury, I?d have to have a good lawyer. And only a good doctor can help me get a good lawyer .Now that he had helped me find a good doctor, it was only fair that I should pay him.

My lawyer was all smiles the first time we met. But after that he avoided seeing me at all. He knew very well the other party was responsible for the accident, yet he hardly did anything.
