In the eighteenth century young ladies in Italy knew history and geography little.
Once the French officer in Rome was giving a ball to which many important people were invited. The Italian Minister（大臣） came very late. A young lady, who knew him, saw him enter the ball-room and asked why he was so late.
“Oh, nothing important,” answered the Minister. ” Our head forgot to take his letterswith him and went back to his hotel to bring them. If he had left them in Brazil we should have had to wait at least six months for them.”
“Is Brazil so far from Rome?” asked the lady, who knew very little geography.
“It is in the New World,” said the Minister.
“In the New World?” repeated the lady in great surprise.
“Yes, in the New World, which was discovered by Christopher Columbus.”
When the young lady heard this, she rushed into the middle of the ball-room and shouted as loud as she could:
“Ladies and gentlemen, have you heard the latest news? A new world has just been discovered by a certain Christopher Columbus.”

One advantage of living outside London is that houses are cheaper. Even a small flat in London without a garden costs quite a lot to rent. With the same money, one can get a little house in the country with a garden of one’s own.
Then, in the country one can really get away from the noise and hurry of busy working lives. Even though one has to get up earlier and spend more time in trains or buses, one can sleep better at night and during weekends and on summer evenings, one can enjoy the fresh, clean air of the country. If one likes gardens, one can spend one’s free time digging, planting, watering and doing the hundred and one other jobs which are needed in a garden. Then, when the flowers and vegetables come up, one has got the reward together with those who have shared the secret of Nature.
Some people, however, take no interest in country things: for them, happiness lies in the town, with its cinemas and theatres, beautiful shops and busy streets, dance-halls and restaurants. Such people would feel that their life was not worth living if they had to live it outside London. An occasional walk in one of the parks and a fortnight’s (two weeks) visit to the sea every summer is all the country they want: the rest they are quite prepared to leave to those who are glad to get away from London every night.

From Monday to Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and weekends they are free and __21__ themselves. Some watch television or go to the movies, others take part in sports. This is decided by their own interests.
There are many different ways to spend our free time. Almost everyone has some kind of__22__. It may be something from colleting stamps to making model planes.
