     In England recently three foreign gentlemen came to a bus stop and waited. About five minutes later,
the bus they wanted came along. They were just going to get on when suddenly there was a loud noise
behind them. People rushed onto the bus and tried to push them out of the way. Someone shouted at
them. The bus conductor came rushing down the stairs to see what all the trouble was about. The three
foreigners seem all at sea and looked embarrassed (窘迫的). No one had told them about the British
custom (习惯) of lining up for a bus that the first person who arrives at the bus stop is the first person
to get on the bus.  
  Learning the language of a country isn't enough. If you want to have a pleasant visit, find out as
much as possible about the manners and customs of your host country. You will probably be surprised
just how different they can be from your own. A visitor to India would do well to remember that people
there consider it impolite to use the left hand for passing food at table. The left hand is supposed to be
used for washing yourself. Also in India, you might see a man shaking his head at another to show that
he doesn't agree. But in many parts of India a shake of the head means agreement. Nodding (点头) your
head when you are given a drink in Bulgaria will most probably leave you thirsty.   
     In that country, you shake your head to mean "yes"-a nod means "no". At a meal in countries on the
Arabic Peninsula, you will find that your glass is repeated refilled as soon as you drink up. If you think
that you have had enough, you should take the cup or glasses in your hand and give it a little shake from
side to side or place your hand over the top.   
     In Europe it is quite usual to cross your legs when you are sitting talking to someone even at an
important meeting. Doing this in Thailand, however, could bring about trouble. Also, you should try to
avoid (避免) touching the head of an adult (成人)-it's just not done in Thailand.

High in the mountains, and deep in the forest, lives a lake with many plants and animals in and around her. The plants and animals have enough food and clean water to keep them healthy. The wind carries pure air, and the rain comes down clear and clean.

But recently, Lucy Lake and her friends haven’t been feeling very well. All the plants and animals get together to talk about the problem. “Why are we sick?” “What can we do?” ask all of them. No one has any answers.

Just then two hikers appear. The animals tell them about their problems. “Can you help us?” they ask. “Yes,” one hiker says. “I think it’s because of acid rain.”

“Acid rain comes from chemicals(化学物质) in the air. The pollution comes from factories, cars and trucks.”

“So, although I don’t want to, I help the pollution travel through the air!” says the wind. “And I carry it to the land!” cries the rain. 

“If you can help us think of some solutions(解决方法), we will send a message to tell people how to clean up our environment,” one hiker says. 

With the help of the plants and animals, the two hikers make a list of ideas for saving Lucy Lake and her friends.

Time passes, and the forest and lake begin to feel a little better.

The next time the hikers climb up the mountains to Lucy Lake, they smile at what they find. “We’re glad things have started to change,” one hiker says. “And we’re glad you helped us make a difference,” says the other.
