3．（8分）My Olympic volunteering journey started last September.I was excited as I was myself a sports fan and my home country has not hosted a competition like this.It was a great chance for me to both watch and serve the Olympics.
After getting trained through the Internet and spending two weeks in quarantine（隔离），I began to volunteer inside the Wukesong Sports Center.The Center hosted ice hockey games for both men's and women's teams.My job was to guide the audience（观众）to their seats and answer their questions.I was wild with joy to be present and watch my first﹣ever Olympic games live，on the ice.All the games were interesting，and I watched them whenever my volunteering duties would allow.
In our free time，we had pleasant conversations.It was the best chance for us foreign students to learn more about the Chinese New Year celebrations，and this year，to celebrate it together with our Chinese friends.It was really a big festival.We had special Chinese dishes like dumplings，fish and spring rolls.I also tried to write Chinese characters.
I decided to make the most of the chance and introduce my African and Rwandan customs to other volunteers.I showed to them the real Africa that they had never seen on TV before.From geography to social life，I made them understand more about Africa by giving examples of my hometown. It was a great platform （平台）for us young people to share both our cultures and futures.
As an international volunteer for Beijing 2022，I was given a special experience to help others and more importantly，to learn about the spirit of the Winter Olympic Games.I'll never forget it.

4．（8分）Smartphones are getting boring.The new models are either a bit faster or have better cameras，but they are basically no different from the ones already in our pockets.This is why scientists are hoping，and working for something new，something that will change our lives just as greatly as smartphones do.At the moment，the next invention might be smart glasses.
Just imagine.Instead of having to pick up your phone and look at the screen，all of the information you need simply appears just in front of you，in your glasses.Satellite navigation（导航）directions would appear right there on the road.And your smart glasses could guide you to the right shelf in the supermarket!
Smart glasses could also be used in industry.They could show engineers the instructions they need to fix things more quickly.A doctor could carry out a difficult operation，guided in real time by someone on the other side of the world.
This may sound impossible.But most of the technologies to invent them are already there.For example，one key technology is called AR，which can make digital 3 D objects appear as if they are part of the real world.We've used it a lot on our video calls.Similarly，huge progress has been made in spatial audio.This is when a sound is made to give it a sense of place，like what you hear in an empty room.Some high﹣end earphones can already do that.Future glasses will of course need to recognize（识别）your voice to do tasks.This technology has been widely used in our daily life.
So，why aren't we all wearing smart glasses yet？So far，no one has invented a good way to send images （映像）of our world onto glasses.However，with the rapid development of technology，smart glasses could arrive much sooner than we think.

B.Where smart glasses could be used.

D.Why smart glasses should be changed.
（3）Which of the following technologies needs to be improved to invent smart glasses？
A.Making spatial audio.
C.Creating digital 3 D objects.
D.Sending images onto glasses.
（4）How might the writer feel about the future of smart glasses？
5．（8分）When Leon Martin asked for his parents' advice on how to become a UX designer（设计师），they both went silent."In fact，I had no idea what he was talking about，" said Anne，his mother."I didn't know whether he was talking about designing clothes，computer programs or a fancy brand of bike."

"But we usually depend much on our own experiences.And things have changed so much since most of us were at school."
