This means looking quickly through a piece of writing to find the mainidea without reading every word. It is still a good idea to read the firstsentence in each paragraph a little more carefully. 这意味着很快通过一段文字，找到主要的想法，而不阅读每一个字。读每一段的第一句话还是一个好主意
Dear Sir, 亲爱的先生，
I do not understand why some parents make their kids help with housework andchores at home. Kids these days already have enough stress from school. They donot have time to study and do housework, too. Housework is a waste of theirtime. Could we just let them do their job as students? They should spend their timeon schoolwork in order to get good grades and get into a good university. Also, when they get older, they will have to do housework so there isno need for them to do it now. It is the parents'job to providea clean and comfortable environment at home for their children.And anyway, I think doing chores is not so difficult. I do not mind doing them.
