Tips for Cooking on a Tight Schedule
From my experience, there are three main reasons why people don’t cook more often: ability, money, and time. Ability is easily improved. Money is a topic I’ll save for another day. So today I want to give you some wisdom about how to make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen. Here are three tips for great cooking on a tight schedule:
1. Think ahead. The moments when I think cooking is a pain are when I’m already hungry and there’s nothing ready to eat. So think ahead of the coming week. When will you have time to cook? Do you have the right materials already? 17
A. Try new things.
B. Ability is easily improved.
C. Make three or four instead.
D. Understand your food better.
E. Cooking is a burden for many people.
F. Let cooking and living simply be a joy rather than a burden.
G. A little time planning ahead can save a lot of work later on.
1. Think ahead.
2. So think ahead of the coming week.
3. When will you have time to cook?
通常文章第一段要提出文章的主题, 如果在段尾提出主题, 会用一些信号词, 如转折词but, however等。特别是建议类说明文, 文章主题句常在首段段末。
结合前文内容, 查找相同词、同义词或其他相关的信息词, 从而最终概括出结论句。注意在选项中查找表示结果、结论、总结等的信号词, 如therefore, as a result, thus, hence, in short, to sum up, in a word等词语。
结合本段内容认真阅读下一段开头句, 看是否与选项句紧密联系起来, 以此判断是否是承上启下句。

Home can be a great place for children to study. It’s important to provide a workspace of their own where they can read books or just write a letter to their friends.
● Location （位置）
72 ____________ Kitchen and dining room are not so well suited for regular study, since books and pens get in the way of the day-to-day uses of those areas. Set up a place where a child can settle in and leave papers and pens at band without having to clear everything away each night. For a child that likes being alone, set aside a corner of his bedroom, but keep it separate from things like games, music and other hobbies not related to studying.
● Keeping Things in Order
Parents should encourage their child to spread out, but to leave it neat and orderly when he isn’t using his workspace. Ownership is very important for self-respect. 73____________ The workplace should be personal, but not another part of the playroom.
● 74____________ Encourage the whole family to help build a supportive environment that children need for success in school. Give them a good example of how to deal with problems, how to manage time and get things done in the right way. 75____________ Study will be more enjoyable and effective when supported by the whole family.
