范文 1 Examination考试

There are many arguments about the advantages and disadvantages of examination. Some people think examination is the only way to test how examinees have mastered what they have studied and it is the only measurement for examiners to select which persons they need. While, on the other hand, some object that examination can't measure how the students have really studied. They say it can do nothing but burden the students.

As for me, I think for both examiners and examinees, the examination can show what and how much the examinees have mastered. The results of examinations are just like mirrors for both examiners and examinees. Through examination the examiners can know whether they have done well, so that they'll make much improvement in their work. As far as examinees are concerned, they can not only know how they have studied but also find out what they are still unknown or what they haven't mastered well. Thus, they will be inspired to make greater efforts to improve their studying method so as to make greater progress. Of course, too many examinations are burdens to both examiners and examinees. In sum, the examination does more good than harm for both examiners and examinees. We must take a correct attitude towards examination. We should take full advantage of it and avoid its disadvantage. 范文 2

T he Two day Weekend两天周末

Generally speaking, two day weekends are not only a time for us college students to relax, but also a time to improve ourselves. To test from a week's hard work, we have plenty of recreation opportunities. We can read to our hearts' content, can go sightseeing, and can play games with our friends. Some students find part time jobs at weekends so that they can ease their families' financial burdens.

However , some students are just wasting their time. Some spend their time playing cards, and even drinking and eating with their friends. Some spend the whole weekend going traveling and feel tired when they return to school, so that their studies will be greatly affected.

As a student, I think the first thing I should do is to go over the lessons. Spending two or three hours in going over lessons every weekend will give me great returns. After finishing my schoolwork, I can do many other things, for example, mountain climbing, watching films and skating. In short, if we plan well, we can achieve a bit on weekends. Otherwise, we'll get nothing.

Getting to Know the World Outside the Campus开始在校园的外面知道世界

It's necessary for college students to know the world outside the campus. For one thing, it can make students know themselves so that they can modify their ways in studies. For another , it will lay foundation for their future career. Finally, they can practice their abilities in management, organization and so on.

There are many ways for students to get to know the outside world. First, they can know the world from mass media, such as newspapers, TV , radios, magazines and advertisements which provide information about political events, social news, the latest development in science and technology and so forth. Second, they can know the world from social services, such as job hunting, private teaching which offer students the opportunities to know the society. Third, students can also make some investigations in factories and villages, talking with the workers or farmers to learn their experiences.

As a student, I think the first thing I should do is to study hard to lay a good foundation for my future job. The other thing I can do is to do some part time jobs to gain personal experience

about the world outside the campus.

Successful Language Learners成功的语言学习者

Some people seem to have talents for learning languages. They can pick up new vocabulary, master roles of grammar, and learn to write in the new language more quickly than others. Now let's take a close look at these successful language learners to see what we can get from them.

First of all, successful language learners are independent learners. Instead of waiting for the teacher to explain, they try to find the patterns and the roles for themselves. They are good guessers who look for clues and form their own conclusions. When they guess wrongly, they try again. They attempt to learn from their mistakes.

Successful language learning is active learning. Therefore, successful learners do not wait for a chance to use the language; they look for such a chance. They are not afraid to repeat what they hear or to say strange things; they are willing to make mistakes and try again. When

communication is difficult, they can accept information that is inexact or incomplete. It is more important for them to think in the language than to know the meaning for every word.

Finally, successful language learners are learners with a purpose. They want to learn the language because they are interested in the language and the people who speak it. It is necessary for them to learn the language in order to communicate with these people and to learn from them.

What kind of language learners are you? If you are successful, you have probably been learning independently, actively, and purposefully. On the other hand, if your language learning has been less than successful, you might do well to try some of the techniques outlined above.

Life in the University大学中的生活

Life in the university is not as satisfactory as what we had expected. First of all, we are tightly bound by continual classes, excessive homework and exams; some students complain that we are becoming “exam machines”. Secondly, the teaching method is boring; instead of lecturing. Some teachers just “read” lessons. Finally, living conditions need to be improved; and food in the dining hall is far from being attractive and tasteful.

In spite of all these adversities we still enjoy our life in the university. During the four year university study, we cannot only acquire a lot of book learning, but also various activities, such as speech contests. Different social gatherings and dancing parties can provide opportunities to make friends; many of these friendships may last a long time.

In short, we should value our life in the university. Four years is only a short period when compared with our whole lifetime. In the university we become mature, and we prepare ourselves for the real world, although there is something unsatisfying, the four years in the university is a worthwhile period in our whole lifetime.

A True, Good Student一位真实、好学生

What is meant by a true, good student? A true, good student is one who possesses good morality, sound health, perfect knowledge and various abilities. To attain this, I shall give a few suggestions as follows:

First, cultivate good morality. One of the best qualities of a student is good behavior. Bad character

is easily scorned and disdained. Polite manners and noble ideas make up a true man. Such evil habits as smoking, drinking, gambling, etc. should be got rid of. Whenever you find something wrong, correct it quickly. You should be sincere to your friends, respectful to your teachers and the elder. In short, you should do everything right.

Second, study diligently and put your knowledge to practical use. “Knowledge is power”, said Francis Bacon. One will not reach the rich storehouse of knowledge unless he studies carefully: no diligence, no accomplishment. To apply knowledge to practical use is, however, more important. Students ought to apply their learning to something practical to benefit the people.

Third, make your body strong and healthy. Health is the key to success. Broken in health, one can do nothing. A sound mind is found only in a sound body. The healthier your body is, the brighter your mind will be, and the higher learning you can attain. So you should never neglect your health. “Work while you work; play while you play” is a good way for everybody to observe.

With the foregoing three points in mind, you may be “a truly good student”.

Our English Teacher 我们的英国老师

Our English teacher, Miss Liang is the best teacher I have so far. She has not only treated us as her younger sisters and brothers, but is also enthusiastic and conscientious in her teaching.

She is thirty six, but she does not look her age for she is attractive and delicate. In class she is dignified and reserved and after class she plays and jokes with us. She is our friend as well as our teacher.

She is never tired of helping us in our work. She patiently answers our questions all in English. Also, we are required to prepare our lessons before coming to class. Furthermore, no matter how many new words there are in the texts, we are told to look up their meanings in the dictionary. She knows how to help her students to achieve the best result in the limited time.

With Miss Liang as our teacher, all of us have made amazing progress in our English study. She is both our best friend and best teacher. We all like her very much.

tudying Abroad国外的学习

S Attending schools abroad has many advantages. In the first place, by looking at our own country from the outside, we can clearly see the strong points and weak points of our nation and therefore widen our vision and broaden our minds. Second, while studying in a foreign country, we can travel widely, visiting famous scenic spots and making friends with the local people. Thirdly, we can use the foreign language in our daily life so that our ability in the second language may be improved quickly. But the most important thing in attending a foreign university is to get acquainted with the latest knowledge in science and technology and make use of the first rate facilities available. For all these advantages, it is really worthwhile to go abroad for education. However, as everything has two sides, there are also some disadvantages in attending a foreign university. The most serious problem is the language barrier. Most of the students who are ready to go abroad do not have adequate proficiency in the language spoken there. Furthermore, the cost of living is much higher than that in our country, so most students have to find part time jobs in order to support themselves. Faced with these difficulties, many students find themselves unable to pay full attention to their studies and some students may even fail in their courses and learn little.

Importance of Education

The prosperity of a nation depends on the development of education. Throughout the world whatever advance has been made in science and technology is due to education, which brings forth by scientists and inventors. It is never overdone no matter how one emphasizes the importance of education. There is no doubt that countries with undeveloped education will remain poor.

Education is as vital to the development of an individual as it is to that of a nation. Of all the elements of success in our careers none is more vital than education. It is not the genius that makes the difference between success and failure. Education is the driving power. In fact, most of the famous people in our times spent many years in studies. Can you name any great men you admire who are not educated persons?

Yet some people are still ignorant of its importance. Some parents, especially in the countryside, think that it is unnecessary to send their children to school. Some other parents are so selfish that they have their children work for money. In consideration of the situation, compulsory education must be enforced to ensure that there will be enough educated young people for the future of our country. 范文 10

The Importance of Self education 自己 教育的重要性

Self education brings success. Though we students have teachers to help us, still we should pay more attention to self study. Here are some suggestions.

First, read outside our class. Every new book one reads will benefit him in one way or another. The more we read, the more we are benefited. As life is short and knowledge is infinite, we should try to read as many books as we can.

Second, improve our memory and reasoning powers. If we read more and more, we can make our memory and reasoning powers improve to some degree. Moreover, we shall be able to write more clearly and correctly.

Third, develop our character. When we have formed the habit of reading, we can put into practice what they have taught and build up a good character.

In a word, if we want to educate ourselves, the most important thing for us to do is to read not only our textbooks, but also any other books that are within our reach.

范文 1 Lucky Number幸运数字

My friend Mary was born on June 13 th, 1977. She is always dissatisfied with her birthday because “13” is an “evil” number. There are lots of people who are convinced that good numbers

bring good luck and bad numbers bring disasters. Hence, 13, 4 and other so called evil numbers are wiped off from cards, list, menus, etc. Even in some cities, there is no bus No.13 or No.13 Street. 街道

I don't think numbers have anything to do with luck. Numbers were created for counting. There is no relationship between a certain number and one's fate. There are many people who succeed in spite of “close relationship” with bad numbers. There are also a lot of people, who should have been blessed by “lucky” numbers, involved in accidents. Take my friend Mary for example. She achieved a good study at the nation's most prestigious university and later gained good reputation in her career. Her luck is not a bit damaged by her “bad birthday”.

In a word, numbers are numbers. They stand for nothing but quantity. Numbers have nothing to do with luck.

On Making Friends关于交朋友

As a human being, one can hardly do without a friend. If we don't have a friend in the world, our life will not be interesting and we cannot live more happily.

But what is true friendship? True friendship can share happiness and sadness with you. A bad friend, on the other hand, only loves you when you are lucky and rich. When you become poor and powerless they will desert you. We all know, “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. So, we need to take the persons who are dedicated to the contribution of our relationship as our real friends.

I choose my friends only when they can share not only my happiness but also my sadness.

To Communicate by Letter or by Telephone根据信或电话传达

In the modern times, there are many ways for people to communicate, among which are telephone calls and writing letters. Some people prefer the former; others the latter.

Compared with the telephone calls, I like letter writing better, because letter writing is mush more personal than the telephone. Perhaps it is more practical and convenient to use the telephone in the business world, but you do need to write to some people who are intimate to you. On the one hand, when writing letters, you can take your time and fully express your ideas and feelings. In this way, you and

your friend will get closer emotionally. This can certainly not be achieved by using the telephone. On the other hand, while people may soon forget what has been talked about on the phone, they can read letters again and again, enjoying the content as well as the everlasting friendship. One more advantage of letters is that they don't disturb them. If a letter is from someone you don't like, you can throw it away without being troubled in any way. Unfortunately, the telephone is our enemy in this aspect. In short, I think if you have time, it is better to write letters to friends than making telephone calls. 范文 5

Which Part of the Newspaper Do You Prefer? 你偏爱哪些报纸的一部份?

I like reading newspapers. Each day after supper, I spend half an hour scanning the content of each page, including information about the weather, national and international news and advertisements of various kinds. But the page I read most often is the sports page.

First, I like reading the sports news. I am a sports fan, but since life is busy and I cannot afford a lot of time watching various games, the newspaper has become an important way for me to get information about sports. I can know what matches are being held in the world, and who are the winners or losers by reading sports news. What attracts me most is what the Chinese sportsmen and sportswomen are doing. But since participating in a game is more important than winning or losing the game, I am always delighted to know that the Chinese are getting more and more involved in the international sports events.

Second, I also enjoy reading the critical articles written about certain games. If I have watched a football game, for instance, I will have my own opinion on why and how one team had defeated the other. When reading the experts' explanation and comments on the same match, I can learn a lot. In summary, the sports page is a place where I can find entertainment and learn more about sports. For these reasons, I read this page of the newspaper very often.

Pollution Control污染控制

There are many cause of pollution. Let us have a look at some of them. First, there are so many cars in our cities, especially large ones. They give off waste, sometimes even poisonous gases. Second, many factories, such as papermaking ones, let their dirty water directly flow into our

rivers and lakes. Third, farmers use more and more chemicals and pesticides. So, our fields are polluted. Of course, these pollutions are harmful to our health. Some rivers have become undrinkable. Some polluted food or vegetables can cause cancer and if we breathe dirty air into our lungs, we may fall ill. Now, some governments are taking measures to solve this problem. For example, our government is making a policy to punish the factories, which have made the Huai River very dirty. Also, our government is reducing the number of cars in Beijing. I think all these are very necessary. If we all work hard, this problem can be solved in the future.

Global Shortage of Fresh Water淡水的全球不足

Many people believe that fresh water will never be used up. They think that fresh water comes from such varieties of sources that it is always sufficient for us. Such opinion leads to surprising waste of water.

As a matter of fact, the earth is short of fresh water. Furthermore, with the rapid growth of the world's population, the rising demand of water by industry, and the serious pollution of our surroundings, the world is facing the danger of running out of fresh water. Actually, in some big cities, fresh water cannot meet the daily needs.

Therefore, it is up to us to find new ways to save water. First, we should make the best use of water, and not waste it. Second, scientists must work even harder to purify seawater, polluted water and try to find solutions in industry to reduce the use of fresh water.范文 9

No Smoking不要吸烟

Smoking is harmful. This has been proved by scientific experiments. However, many young people are still getting into the habit of smoking even though they have come to realize how serious this proldem is.

Smoking does not only harm the smokers but also people around them. Some people who don't smoke have to breathe in dirty air. If they suffer from this too long, they can also become the victims of smoking and develop the same diseases.

Therefore, smoking is a bad habit. Everyone, especially young people, should do their best to get

rid of it. The non smokers should persuade their relatives not to smoke or, at least, they should take up fight for cleaner air.

Good Health健康生活

The desire for good health is universal. It is the basis of happiness, wealth and success. A person can hardly always be energetic and enjoy his life. Those who are poor in health often feel sad. A weak sick man can hardly achieve much success in his career no matter what level of education he has received. What should we do to maintain our health? First of all, we should keep a balanced diet. We should eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, not too much meat and little animal fat. Secondly, regular physical exercise is essential for a healthy mind and body. One can keep fit by taking part in sports activities that fit him. Jogging, running, and swimming are all good exercises. Finally, enough sleep is also important.

A tired person will recover soon after a sleep.

As for me, one of my ways to keep fit is to keep a regular lifestyle. I get up early in the morning and go to bed before 11 o'clock. I also take a nap at noon.

Computers 计算机

The computer is a wonderful machine. It is the most important invention in our modern time. Today it is used a great deal in many ways. In the future the computer will probably touch the life of every one, even people in remote villages.

Computers can do many kinds of work. For example, in big shops, information about the sale is put into a computer. During the night the computer works on the information from all the sales that day. The next morning, the manager has a report on everything that will soon be sold out. In scientific researches, a scientist can “ask” a computer some questions. This is almost like talking to another scientist.

In the past few years there have been great changes in computers. They now can do most of the things that people do, though most scientists have no idea about what computers of tomorrow will be like. Will they make life better, or will they bring suffering to people? People today have to

decide how to use the computers of tomorrow.

Science and Technology in Modern Life现代的生活的科学和技术

Human life cannot continue without science and technology. For many centuries, human society develops with the advance of science and technology. So the life we are living now is more civilized than that of our forefathers.

The development of science and technology has brought about many changes in people's life. For example, the invention of television and the space rocket has opened a new era for mankind. Through the use of TV people can hear and see the events, which happened or, are still happening thousands of miles away. Owing to spaceship and the rocket, the dream of man's landing on the moon has now come true.

Science and technology also play an important role in our social construction. We may say that our social construction is like a skyscraper that cannot be built up without the help of science and technology. Therefore, we should try our best to contribute to the development of science and technology so as to provide a more solid base to build our country.

What Would Happen if There Were No Power如果没有力量,会发生什么事

Ever since early this century, electricity has become an essential part of our modern life. It has played a decisive role in modern industry, agriculture, science and technology, national defense and education. Nobody can deny that the development of our civilization depends on electricity.

If there were no electric power, our modern world would be in great trouble. For one thing, all the wheels would stop because the motors that power the machines would stop. For another, many of our industries would cease production. And all the electrical equipment such as washing machines,

refrigerators, TVs would stop working. In short, our modern life would be impossible without electricity. Therefore, we should make better use of electric power. On the one hand, we should educate people to economically use electricity and not to waste the energy resources for the future. On the other hand, we must do our best to exploit more electric resources to meet the requirements of the human beings and to avoid energy crisis in the future.范文 6

Newspapers 报纸

Newspapers bring us news about current affairs. They help us know what is happening in the world. Stories and sports columns are highly entertaining. And advertisements provide us with

various kinds of information.

Newspapers have several advantages over radios and TV. We can read them wherever and whenever we have time; we can keep them for later reference; we may cut out articles and trace developments in certain subjects.

Today newspapers are not as important as they used to be, but they still play a role as a form of mass media. Everyday more newspapers than books are read. Their influence should never be underestimated.

However , the role of the daily press should be to broaden and deepen the reader's view. Instead of moving restlessly and dealing with one event briefly then quickly switching to another, the press should become less restless and dwell on fewer events.

Life Without Music生活没有音乐

To me, life without music would not be exciting. I realize that this is not true for everyone. Many people get along quite well without any symphony concerts, jazz festivals or records. But music virtually plays a part in everyone's life, whether he realizes it or not. Try to imagine, for example, what movies or TV dramas would be like without music. The feelings and emotions, the complexities of the plot, and the climax would mot be exciting or dramatic.

Now, we have been speaking of music in its more common meaning: the kind of music we hear in the concert hall. But if we look at the elements of music more closely, we discover them in our

everyday life, too; the rhythm of the sea, the melody of a mocking bird, and the harmony of

village chimes. So music surely has meaning for everyone, in some way or other. And, of course, it has special meaning for those who have dedicated their lives to its expression through composition and performance.

It is well said, “Through music a child enters into a world of beauty, expresses his inmost self, tastes the joy of creating, widens his sympathies, develops his mind, soothes and refines his spirit and adds grace to his body.”

Positive and Negative Aspects of Sports运动的积极、否定方面

Sports benefit us in many respects. When taking part in sports, we get the chance to train almost all parts of our bodies. There is no doubt that proper sports activities keep our physical fitness. Furthermore, sports can enrich our life and maintain our psychological health. Through participation, everyone can learn that on the playground he not only struggles for himself but also fights for his team. Sports teach us about consideration, cooperation and optimism to failure.

But sports can do some harm to those people who cannot plan their activities properly. Too hard training may hurt their bodies, exhaust their vigor, and even cause them to be sick.

In general, I love sports; enjoy sports. I feel that I not only gain a well balanced life through

going in for sports, but also get more chances to move closer to nature. Sports add happiness to my everyday life when I perform in a decent way.

Sports in Our Country在我们的国家的运动

Sports are flourishing in our country now. Table tennis is the most popular sport. School children start playing it when they are very young. Not only is it played in school but it is also a favorite game for workers and people in other walks of life. In fact, it has become a sort of national game. There are other favorite sports. For example, badminton is another popular sport, though it is not

played as widely as table tennis. A number of Chinese traditional sports such as Taijiquan, Wushu, Sword play and Qigong, are no less popular. Mention should be made of such ball games as football, basketball and volleyball.

In order to keep fit and win honor for our motherland, men and women, young and old, take an active part in sports. And our government takes effective measures to promote physical culture and build up our people's health. More and more people go in for sports because sports can help them to build up a healthy body, to train a strong character and to raise the position of the nation in the world. 范文 10

Jogging Is an Ideal Sport慢跑是一项理想的运动

That jogging is an ideal sport lies in the fact that it is a mild sport. Unlike some sports, such as football and cricket, during which one may easily get hurt, jogging is very safe and especially suitable for those who are not so robust, you may feel exhausted after running because the energy in your body is released too fast, but after jogging you will just feel OK.

Another reason for jogging being an ideal sport is that it has no limit of time or space. You can jog whenever and wherever you want. If it is raining outside, jogging can even be done in a spacious room. How long it lasts depends on your will. So you are less like to be influenced by such factors as time, weather and space when you are jogging.

Last but not least, jogging is a cheap and convenient sport. It is cheap because no extra apparatus is needed, so you can get exercise without spending a penny. It is convenient, for jogging can be done whenever and wherever you want, and it can be done by oneself. In a word, jogging is such an ideal sport that I would like to recommend it to everyone.

My Ideal Job我的理想工作

When people ask us about what we want to be in the future, we usually have different answers. We might want to be teachers, doctors, scientists, sportsmen and so on. To tell you the truth, my ideal

job is on business. This idea came into being when I was a child.

Now, I am majoring in Industry and Foreign Trade. I'm sure what I am learning now will give me a lot of help and preparation for my future job. So from now on, I must study hard, because my future job requires rich knowledge and skills.

improving my English because English is very essential in doing business with foreigners. Where there is a will, there is a way. I have confidence in myself that I can be a good businessman.

Job Interview工作面谈

You may have a job interview first if you want to get a good job before graduation. For an interview, he may have a lot of interviewees to choose, and for an interviewee, he may also have many jobs to choose. Therefore, both the interviewee and interviewer should be careful about their decision. Through the face to face talk, either the interviewer or the interviewee can know a little about each other. On the one hand, the interviewer will make the interviewee know something about the job such as the property, the working conditions, salary, welfare, etc. He may also ask him the reasons of applying for the job in order to know what he is. All these will help the interviewer to decide whether he is fit for the job or not.

On the other hand, the interviewee will try to introduce himself in order to give the interviewer a good impression. He will make the interviewer get some idea of his educational background, ability, character, interest and viewpoint of the job. Remember you should have confidence in yourself. All these will help the interviewer to decide whether you are fit for the job or not.

In short, the job interview has great advantages for both the interviewer and interviewee.

On Housing Reform关于居住改革

The old house allotting policy had at least two disadvantages. First, the government spent a lot of money building some houses, but these houses were allotted to people free of charge. Thus, the government would have no money to build more houses for people who badly needed them. Second, the persons who were in power could get more houses than those who were powerless. This was quite unfair.

On the contrary, the new system of house allotment may bring about many new things. For example, the government will have more buildings, which can be sold to people. The chances for them will be equal.

When I enter the society, I would get a loan from the bank to buy my own house. Then, I would try to pay back the loan as soon as possible. After that, I would proudly claim, “Now, I am the master of that house.”

Wealth and Happiness财富和快乐

Everybody wants to get wealth. In today's material world, making money or becoming wealthy symbolizes a person's success and capability. Many people just make every effort, pay any price to attain greater wealth. With money, they can buy nice, large apartments in nice neighborhood. With money they can own luxurious cars. Wealth seems to bring all happiness in life.

But is wealth the only road to happiness? Not really. There are many things in the world, which are beyond the means of money, such as friendship, love, health and knowledge. Money people are so preoccupied with struggling for money that they have no time or would not take the time to form or maintain friendship. What happiness can they feel living as lonely miserable creatures without love or friends in the world even if they accumulate tremendous wealth?

In my opinion, people can't do anything without money, but money is not everything. What money will bring you depends on your personal belief and goal in life. If you are kind enough to help others, especially the poor, money is a good thing to you. With it, you can do much more for the benefit of

people and your country, and it will add to your own happiness. If you want money just for your own needs, you'll never be satisfied or happy. In a word, you should have money spent for more people, only then can money be the source of your happiness.

Problems Brought about by Automobiles被汽车导致的问题

Although the automobile has brought convenience to us, many people have begun to realize that it is the source of trouble as well. Because of too many automobiles, traffic accidents happen again and again all over the world. Worst of all, gases sent out by the automobiles give rise to air pollution and do great harm to people.

In order to solve the problem of air pollution, some automobile manufacturers are trying to build a car that does not pollute environment, and some inventors are working on cars powered by steam and electricity. But now this is only a dream for people.

The governments in some countries, for example, in the United States, are trying to reduce the number of privately owned cars and ask the people to use public transportation. But this is also far from being perfect, so now it is very difficult to make some dramatic changes. We still have a long way to go in order to solve the problems brought by automobiles.

Honesty 诚实

Honesty means fairness and uprightness in speech and acts. It's a perfect treasure, and the cultivation of it is the worthiest labor on earth.

Honesty is a “dynamo” that generates the power to lead us to victory. It inspires confidence in others as well as in ourselves. It strengthens our mind, disciplines our faculties, and gives us independence of thought and personality.

Honesty should be practical in small matters as in big ones. Never make such an excuse as “A

Little dishonesty is only a small thing.” If you are dishonest in small matters, you will be dishonest in large matters, too, and in the end you will be an entirely dishonest man.
