发达国家究竟比咱们发达在哪儿呢?来看看美国中学生的学习生活跟我们有什么不一样!


A BIG gap remains between the world's rich and poor countries. The yearly UN's Human Development Report in 2004 showed that little improvement had been made in poor countries.

Norway remains on the top of the list, but the United States dropped to number eight. China is at number 94 out of the 177 countries.

Developing and developed countries still have many differences. One measure of development is the education index (指数). In developing countries this is 0.71 but in developed countries it is 0.96. The index measures literacy (读写能力) and school attendance.

Now let's take a look at students' lives in the US and China. Steven Lee is an 18-year-old boy living in California and Sun Yuman is a Senior 3 girl from Shandong Province.

Q: How do you go to school?

Steven: I go to school by school bus. Sometimes I take a ride (搭便车) with friends who have their own cars.

Sun: I walk there because I live nearby. Some classmates go to school by bike. No one can afford a car.

Q: What classes do you have?

Steven: There are basic and optional (可选的) classes. The optional classes include calculus (微积分), news writing, foreign language and more. There are several languages to choose from, such as Spanish, French and Chinese. I chose Spanish because I like to communicate with the foreign teachers.

Sun: My list is fixed, and includes maths, Chinese, English, physics, chemistry and biology.

Q: What tool do you use most to help you study?

Steven: My computer, of course. Every day, I have to do my homework searching on the Internet to find information. We do quite a lot experiments in the science lab to help us better understand the book.

Sun: Oh, I only have computer lessons once a week. My parents bought me a computer for home. But I don't use it very often.
