Knowing the best way to study will help you to be a better student. By using your time properly, you can do your homework more quickly. Learning to study is not difficult.
The first thing to remember is that you must be willing to learn. It doesn’t mean that you must always like the subject.

Knowing mathematics facts will be useful in your whole life. Knowing how to spell makes any kind of writing easier. Sometimes subject that you think is going to be uninteresting will be exciting when you begin to work at it and understand it more clearly. Learning things can be fun if you are willing to work with them.
Here’s some advice for you: have a certain time each day and a quiet place with good lighting for study, so that you can concentrate on your study without interruptions; have everything ready before you sit down to study, a dictionary, paper, a pen and books; be sure you understand what you should learn before you start; read carefully and pay special attention to the most important things; when memorizing, first find out the main parts and then recite the whole thing; check your homework after you finish it; never forget the importance of review and preview.

Five steps to better handwriting
Some kids love handwriting, but others hate when it’s time to put their pen to paper. Maybe they are worried about their handwriting. Are you one of them? 1. Here are five steps that really work!
Get a great grasp
Try this — hold your pencil at the top and try to write your name. Pretty hard? But when you hold your pencil the correct way, writing is much easier. 2. Hold it in place with your thumb, and your index (食指) and middle fingers.
Let the lines be your guide
Lined paper is your friend! Those lines can help you create letters that are the right size and proportion (均衡). 3. Also be sure to fill up the lined space completely. Those capital letters should be from the bottom line to the top one.
If your writing is hard to read, try slowing down a little. If you rush, it’s hard to control where you stop and start your letters.
Lower the pressure (压力)
4. That makes it harder to make the smooth lines. Try easing up and don’t hold the pencil too tightly.
Lots of games require you to write or draw pictures. So even though it’s not schoolwork, you’re still using the skills you need to control your pen better.
A. Play games
B. Ask for more advice
C. So “a” should be half the height of a capital “A”.
D. You’ve been writing since you were a little kid.
E. Some kids press down really hard when they write.
F. The good news is that just about everyone can improve their handwriting.
G. The best way to hold a pen or pencil is to let it rest next to the base of your thumb.
1.F上文提到they are worried about their handwriting，后文接着提到Here are five steps that really work!所以答案选F、好消息是每个人都可以改善自己的书法。
2.G 上文提到when you hold your pencil the correct way, writing is much easier.可判断此处答案选G。
3. C下文提到Those capital letters should be from the bottom line to the top one.所以答案选C、小写字母a应该是大写A的一半。
4.E 根据本段的建议是Lower the pressure很容易找到相对应的答案选E。
5.A下文提到Lots of games require you to write or draw pictures.所以此建议跟“玩游戏”有关，所以答案选A。
