China is a big country, so the weather in the south is quite different from that in the north. In Shanghai, we have warm and wet spring, hot summer, cool autumn and cold winter. But in some parts of China, such as Hainan, Guangdong and Yunnan, it is always warm and hot there. People never see snow there. In winter, a lot of tourists come to Hainan, and enjoy the sunshine at the beach. Many people like to go to Yunnan, too. Because the weather there is warm and is like spring in all the seasons. But some people like cold weather. In the north of China, children can make snowmen and play with snowballs. It is fun to play outside while it is snowing. That’s why more people come to Harbin in winter to spend their holidays there.

Hank lived in a small town, but then he got a job in a city and moved there with his wife and his two children. On the first Saturday in their new home, Hank took his new red car out of the garage(汽车间) and was washing it when a neighbour came by. When he saw Hank’s new car, the neighbour stopped and looked at it for a minute. Then Hank turned and saw him.
The neighbour said, “That’s a nice car.Is it yours?”
The neighbour was surprised. “Sometimes?” he said,“What do you mean?”
“Well,” answered Hank slowly, “when there’s a party in the town, it belongs(属于) to my daughter, Jane. When there's a football game somewhere, it belongs to my son, Joe. When I’ve washed it, and it looks really nice and clean, it belongs to my wife. And when it needs gas(汽油), it’s mine.”
