Chinese are very generous when it comes to educating their children. Not caring about the money, parents often send their children to the best schools or even abroad to England, the United States or Australia. They also want their children to take extra-course activities where they will either learn a musical instrument or ballet, or other classes which will give them a head start in life. The Chinese believe that the more expensive an education is, the better it is. So parents will spend an unreasonable amount of money on education. Even poor couples will buy a computer for their son or daughter.
However, what most parents fail to see is that the best early education they can give their children is usually very cheap.
Parents can see that their children's skills vary; skilled in some areas while poor in others. What most parents fail to realize though, is that today's children lack self-respect and self-confidence.
The problem is that parents are only educating their children on how to take multiple- choice tests and how to study well, but parents are not teaching them the most important skills they need to be confident, happy and clever.
Parents can achieve this by teaching practical skills like cooking, sewing and doing other housework.
Teaching a child to cook will improve many of the skills that he will need later in life. Cooking demands patience and time. It is an enjoyable but difficult experience. A good cook always tries to improve his cooking, so he will learn to work hard and gradually finish his job successfully. His result, a well-cooked dinner, will give him much satisfaction and lot of self-confidence.
Some old machines, such as a broken radio or TV set that you give your child to play with will make him curious and arouse his interest. He will spend hours looking at them, trying to fix them; your child might become an engineer when he grows up. These activities are not merely teaching a child to read a book, but rather to think, to use his mind. And that is more important.

U.S. direct marketers are taking advantage of the trends of the market and natural advantages which provide good opportunities in Japan. And the future looks promising, too. In particular, the appreciation of the yen, or what the Japanese refer to as endaka (日元升值), has made many U.S. products much more affordable and desirable to the Japanese consumers. Also, through direct marketing U. S. companies can bypass the multitier distribution channels and provide the Japanese consumers with a product that is priced very competitively to the retail product. Another advantage is that the Japanese market consists of a very affluent society with a high income. Direct marketing allows the Japanese consumers to increase their leisure time by staying at home and shopping. This is very important since leisure time is a very precious commodity in a society which typically has a long work week. (Japanese direct marketers have also taken note of this factor, as evidenced by the trend of stagnant traditional retail sales in Japan while direct marketing sales have continued to expand. ) Japanese consumers also prefer the cachet of such imported goods. This is similar to many consumers around the world who prefer the distinction of French perfume or Italian leather.
What is the passage mainly about?
A The reason why U.S. products are now welcomed in Japan.
B U.S. marketers want to expand their markets to Japan.
C The author gives a comparison between U.S. and Japanese products.
D With their high income, Japanese people can now afford U.S. products.
What does the word "appreciation" mean?
D Increase in value.

A they want to sell as much as possible in Japan
B direct marketing enables them to avoid the multitier distribution channels
C they prefer to keep the same price as it is in U. S.
D the cost of their products is low
What is the problem in Japanese market?
A More and more people are buying imported goods.
B They face the challenges from all imported goods.
C Long work hour hinders the expansion of traditional retail sales.
