7. Hello. My name is Sally, and I want to talk to you about smartphones. __(1)__, I want
to warn you about them. Smartphones can be great tools that bring so __(2)__ into our lives. They bring us new information, new music, new friends, and more. With smartphones, we never have to worry about being bored.
However, one’s smartphone use can quickly get out of control. At first, you __(3)__ look at it. Maybe you just check Instagram or Facebook when you’re bored. But always being __(4)__ on social media or messaging apps can soon take over your life. After this __(5)__, your grades go down, and you stop talking to people. It becomes hard to put down the phone at all. If you are facing this situation, you might have to “break up” with your phone. Learn to live without it again.

8. Lisa woke up excited for her first day of high school. She rushed to the mirror to start
getting ready and __(1)__ a scream. There, on the tip of her nose, was a zit. It was so __(2)__!

Lisa wanted to stay home __(4)__ a few days until the zit was gone, but her mother said no.
At school, no one seemed to care about her zit, but Lisa was sure they all saw it. It looked __(5)__ and bright red in the mirror.

9. Sally looked down at her smartphone. It was such an important part of her life. After
getting the phone, her life had become __(1)__ different. When she had a question—or even when she was just bored—she could always __(2)__ her phone. It was hard __(3)__ goodbye to the phone that had brought her so many new games, music, and friends. She had even begun to think of the phone itself as a friend.
Still, she knew that she had to stop __(4)__ it. The smartphone was taking over her life! With the phone in her hand all the time, she had begun to __(5)__ her friends and family.

According to psychologists*, smartphone addiction* is a real and growing problem. Smartphones __(1)__ the way people live and work, and have many great benefits. However, many people use their phones far too much, and can’t stop themselves. If you __(2)__ use your phone, it’s obvious that you don’t have a problem. But if you do use your phone a lot, how do you know when it’s too much? Some researchers have created a short quiz to help people determine if they have a problem with their phone use. To take the quiz, people simply have to __(3)__ to twenty statements about their feelings about their phone. After they __(4)__ all the statements and rate how much they agree with each, a final score lets them see how much of a smartphone problem they have. If you’re afraid __(5)__ you have a problem, it might be a good idea to take the quiz yourself. Then you will know if
you need to take action.

I am worried about you. We __(1)__ for almost a year now. Until recently, everything was great between us. I thought we had the perfect __(2)__. But lately you are acting different, and you hardly talk to me anymore. It all began when you got that new smartphone. At first, I was happy because we could chat on LINE and send each other pictures on Instagram. We got to see more of each other’s lives.
But, after a while, we began to __(3)__ less and less. You said you were busy with your games. Even when we do meet, it doesn’t feel like you are listening to me. I try to talk to you, but you won’t stop __(4)__ at your phone. Sometimes I get so angry at that little piece of technology that stole my boyfriend!

15. Life puts all of us in embarrassing situations sometimes. These situations may be
__(1)__ fault or may be accidents. So what should you do when you __(2)__ a fool in front of other people? First of all, try to be realistic*. Did anyone even notice what happened? __(3)__, most people are busy thinking about themselves a lot of the time, and don’t pay much attention to others. If people did notice, what then?

․Stay calm. If you need to be alone __(6)__ a few minutes, do so. Everyone gets embarrassed occasionally*, so people will understand.
․Try to __(7)__ other embarrassing things that have happened to you. The new incident* may __(8)__ seem so bad __(8)__.
․Share your story with a friend. Psychologists* say __(9)__ sharing embarrassment with someone else makes it weaker. And you may hear a worse story of theirs!
․Remember, everybody does embarrassing things sometimes. Nobody is __(10)__, including you. Making mistakes makes us human.
․Finally, forgive yourself and move on. You can’t change what happened, but you don’t have to hold on to it forever.

16. How often do you touch your phone each day? Researchers __(1)__ that the typical
smartphone user touches it 2,617 times each day. Because they are such an important part of our lives, it’s clear we must find a way __(2)__ smartphones politely and safely. Some old rules from traditional cell phones still apply, like keeping conversations on the bus or MRT short and quiet. However, smartphones also require their own rules. For example, most people agree that __(3)__ to use one’s phone during a meeting. This is even truer if you are meeting someone __(4)__ the first time. When you are __(5)__ with other people, your phone should be put away. Walking in public is another time you shouldn’t __(6)__ on your phone. While you are busy __(7)__ at Facebook, you are probably walking slowly and blocking the way. __(8)__ to being rude, it’s quite dangerous—you might walk into
something. This is especially true if you’re crossing a street.
The strange thing about all of these rules is that even though people __(9)__ agree
with them, many don’t actually follow them. More than half of people who were surveyed said they sometimes __(10)__ the rule about not using the phone while crossing the street, for example. We all need to work toward more proper phone use.

17. Robert was working as a waiter in a drinks shop. Several times a week, a girl named
Maria came into the shop. Robert thought __(1)__ she was incredibly* beautiful. He was too shy, so he said nothing and just smiled at her.

Maria and her friends __(3)__ and backed away to avoid being splashed. Robert, with his face bright red, ran to get towels and fresh drinks. He __(4)__ an idiot.
