        In modern society,people use money every day.It seems that it is very important in our life.That's because without money you can't buy any goods (商品) you want.But I think few people know the history of money.

        Long ago,people did not need money.They lived on wild animals,fruits and other plants.As time passed,people learned to raise animals and crops.Sometimes,families produced more than they needed,so they started to trade with other families.Later,people began to use money as a means of exchange.However,it was not the kind of money we use today.They used shells,rice,salt,large stones,etc.

        During the 600s BC,people began using coins as money.They soon found that coins were easier to carry than goods and lasted a long time.Later,countries began to make their own coins.

        The Chinese were the first to use paper money,probably as early as the 11th century.The Italian traveler Marco Polo saw the Chinese using money when he visited China in the 1200s.However,European countries did not start using paper money until 1600s.

        Today,we have many ways to pay for things.We do not use coins or paper money.Often,people prefer to pay for things by card.Paying with a card is easier and safer than carrying around a lot of “real” money.

        Many people have a fear(害怕) of public speaking.According to a study,it has an influence on 3 in every 4 people.This fact is surprising and worrying,as most jobs require some speaking ability.The following will help you to make a speech better.

        Write note cards.Write main ideas on your cards.Don't write details.Put in some fun facts,questions,and other activities on the cards to share with the class.Don't look at your note cards for a long time while speaking.If necessary,you're only going to want to have a quick look at the card for information,not read every last word.

        Smile at your class.When it comes time to speak,there's nothing that draws your class into your speech than a good old­fashioned smile.Be happy,because you're about to teach your class something they didn't know before.Studies have shown that smiles_are_infectious.That means once you smile,it's hard for everyone else not to smile.So if you want your speech to go off well,smile.That'll make everyone smile and maybe those smiles will make you actually smile.

        Make eye contact.Nothing is more boring than listening to speaker who looks at the floor or at note cards.Relax.Your class is made up of your friends and you talk to them all the time.Talk the same way now.Have a look at every person in the classroom at least once.That way,everyone will feel like you're communication with them.Also,you'll look like you know what you're talking about.

        Use hand motions.Move your hands along as you talk,using them to express your key points and keep the class interested.It will also lead your nervous energy into a better place.
