Getting paid to talk about the World Cup is a great job. I’m not a football commentator(评论员),though-just an English teacher in japan.
I came to japan two years ago, and didn't think I would stay, but japan has that effect on you. People after endup tiving bere longer than they planned. I think it’s best to teach in a biggest eity where there are onther foreigners to mix with. Rather than a small town where English teachers often complain of feeling like a goldfish in a bovd. Many people choose to live in Tokyo, of course, which is good for the nightlife factor. But I’d say that for geueral quality of living, cities of neither too large nor too small, like Sapporo where I live, are better choices.
I teach English privately, which means I’m my own boss. If you want to devote yourself to private teaching, it’s well worth doing a TEFL eourse first. Beause your lessons will be much better for it. The problem with private teaching is finding students; it took me a year to build up a full schedule(日程表)of private lessons, so I started out teaching in schools part time.
Most of my foreign friends here work full-time for big English conversation schools. The salary is fine to live on. But whether you can save money depends on how much going out and traveling you do here.
The schools are reluetam to take time off –even teachers with tichets for the England-Agentina game had trouble getting the day off.

A skies are filled with millions of migrating(迁徙)birds, Eutopean scientists say the seasonal weadcr appears to be strange; the fatter that bird, the better it flies.
The results of their study led to a theory opposite to a eentral one of acrodynamies(空气动力学), whieh says that the power needed to fly inereases with weight.
For birds, obvionsly, the cost of flying with heavy fat is much smalleg than we used to think. Resenrchers found that red knoll wading birds double their normal body weight of 100 grams before making their twice-a-year nonstop flight between the Bilish lsles and the Russian Actic. Dstance; 5, 000 kilometers.
Aother study in the magazine Naturn measured the ndvanrage of flying in an acrodynamic group which allows birds to save energy by flying smoothly and quielly in the lead bird’s air strearn.
Flying in groups, their heart rates were 14.5 pereenl lower than flying alone, according to Henri, a French scientist. The findings help explain how birds complets difficult migrations. Rescarehers had thought that thinner, stronger birds would have the best chance to survive.
The first study suggests that building up fat to be burnt as fuel during the migration is worth more than the energy it takes to carry the additional weight.
In the study, researeherd said their learn studied the birds flown at different body weights during 28 simulated(模拟的)flights. They foreed a small amount of special water into the birds’ bodies so that they could measure the amount of energy burnt during the flight.

Despite the high technology and investment(投资)in flood defences by the Envirunment Aeney.(环保局)，there is no way to stop all flooding-sooner or later nature will produce something that will beat even the strongest defences.
Warning people of this danger is very important if we are to prevent the greal loss of life seen fifry-three years ago. Indeed if the Flood Warning system that currently exists had been around on that eold, stormy night in January 1953 ,many lives would have been spared.
The Environment Aeney took over the mle of flood warning in 1995 from the police who had to go door to door or sound alarms to get the news not.The service is being constantly improved and a combination of better technology and increased investrnent following the Easter Floods of 1998 has led to the creation of Floodline and an autornatie(自动)messaging systenl that can warn thousands of people in very little time.
The Flood Warning team in Kent has also sent letters to the people living close to the rivers or the sea and invited them to join the AM(automated voiee messaging)systern. Ayone chooeing to take up this free service will receive a recorded message directly to their home, business or pager telling them of the level of warming, giving them as much time as possible to carry out their flood plan and save iterns that cannot be replaced if lost or daraged, such as photographs or children’s farorite toys.
【題組】72.Coose the earrect statements from the following according to the passage.
a.Many people lost their lives in the flood in 1953.
b.The Flood Warning system was already in use in 1953.
c.Flood defences can stop all flooding.
d.The Environrnent Acney began to warn people of flood in 1995.
