Most cities have some facilities of popular science .People can go there and understand science knowledge. Second,the big city can provide many conveniences in transportation and traveling for the people who live in the big city.For example,they can travel with the magnetic suspension train whose maximum speed can attain 400 km per hour.

As hundreds of people rush into big cities,the population of cities has rapidly mounted,which results in crowed buses,a lot of traffic jams,many traffic accidents and poor housing conditions. Frequent traffic accidents threaten people's lifes.

People may have many opinions about living in a big city.Some would think city life is too boisterous and roaring,whereas others may enjoy it. It all depends one's personal point of view and experiences. As for me,I was born in the big city,and I am used to everything here. So I will choose city life.

wer clothes in my wardrobe. For food, I usually had traditional Chinese food for every meal, rice, noodles or a steamed bun with one or two light dishes such as preserved pickles.

For getting around, I rode an old bike on my way to work a year ago. At present, I drive my private car to travel. I believe my life will be better and better in the future.

10,My Ideal Job(我的理想工作)

Every person has his own ideal job. Some people wish to be doctors, while others want to be teachers and so on.As far as I am concerned, I have been dreaming of being a guide for a long time. First, my major is the manage of tourism, so I want to get a job about tourism. Secondly, good guides are

knowledgeable and amiable, meanwhile, they have wide vision. Finally, guide can constantly expand his knowledge and understand lots of customs about different cultures and countries.To achieve my dream of being a qualified guide, I have to make sufficient preparations.

11,My Home(我的家)

I am living on the 10th floor of a tower building with my wife and daughter. It is a newly-built block of flats with 22 stories altogether in the north of the city. We have three bedrooms, one big living-room, one kitchen and two bathrooms. The size is about 127 square meters. When we moved in three years ago. I painted the doors myself, but I had the window frames painted. We are satisfied with the decorations except the cupboards in the kitchen, so I need to build them again. The neighborhood is nice too. I think my home is cozy and I like my home.

12,My Hobbies(我的业余爱好)

Hobbies are activities from which one can benefit a lot. In my spare time, I like painting, singing, raising flowers and cycling. My hobbies help me relax after periods of hard work. Moreover, I can make many friends who share the same hobbies with me. My hobbies help me maintain a mental and physical balance. As you can see, hobbies can be relaxing, challenging, interesting, enjoyable or educational. So everyone should have one or two hobbies, then the life is meaningful and amusing.

13,My Favorite Sport(我喜爱的运动)

My favorite sport is swimming. There are three reasons why I like the sport best. First, it is good for keeping fit. It benefits the heart, the lungsand the limbs. Thanks to the sport, I lost my weight and am graceful in form.

Second, it is easy to find a place to swim. In the country, I can swim in lakes and rivers. In the city, there are many swimming pools spotted among the residential areas.

Third, it can be done in any weather. It is very cool swimming in hot summer. In cold weather, swi

mming is especially refreshing.

Swimming is a very popular sport. I hope you can enjoy it too.

14,Health and Eating Habit(健康与饮食习惯)

An eating habit is closely related to health. In order to keep fit, we should pay more attention to our eating habits. My suggestions for a good eating habit are as follows.

First, dont eat too much or too little for each meal. Eating too much will cause overweight and eating too little, malnutrition(营养不良).

Second, dont eat between meals. Sometimes we like eating biscuits and chips before the mealtime, as a result, we lose our appetite(胃口) for lunch or dinner.

Third, eat more vegetables and fruits everyday.

In my opinion, a good eating habit leads to a healthy life.

15,How to Keep Healthy(如何保持身体健康)

Nowadays, more and more people know the importance of keeping healthy. Without good health, we can do nothing. For me, there are mainly three ways to keep healthy.

First, it is necessary to keep a balanced diet, which is the basis of good health. We should have plenty of fruits and vegetables everyday.

Secondly, it is important to do regular exercises, such as swimming, jogging and so on.

Last but not least, it is essential to keep in good spirits. Relaxation and entertainment are ways to renew our spirits and release our stress.

When we make healthy habits a part of our everyday life, we are bound to keep healthy.

16,High School Life and College Life(我的大学生活)

High school life is quite different from college life. In high school, the students have to wear school uniform. Teachers always ask students to do many tasks in the classroom and supervise students ’ behavior in detail. In college, students have to be responsible for themselves. They have more freedom in college than in high school. For example, they put on the casual clothes instead of uniform. Tutors give them lectures and assignments, and they must spend more time studying by themselves in the library. That means students must manage themselves very well. Although I often recall my high school life, I like college life more.

17,My TV University Life(我的电大生活)

Our TV University is mainly engaged in long distance education. The form of study is very convenient for adult learners like me. I can learn my courses anywhere in my spare time by computer. There are many web-based courses and sources on line. Moreover, I not only use e-mail to send our homework to our tutors but also join online discussion forums. Meantime, the difficulties and puzzles can be solved in the tutorial once a week. The e-learning life is meaningful and demanding. I enjoy my TV university life.

18,Living in a Big City(城市生活)

In the eyes of many people, city life is attractive with all its advantages and conveniences. People can buy almost all kinds of things at supermarkets or shopping malls, dine out in good restaurants, and more important, they can have more educational opportunities.

However, with the expansion of the city, more and more people are flowing into the big city, the traffic is heavier and heavier, the pollution is more and more serious, and the living condition is worse and worse.

Most people love the advantages of city life, but a big city also has its disadvantages.

19,Help For Elderly People(爱护老人)

It is reported that China has stepped into an aging society. As the aging of the population quickens, the number of elderly people is becoming very large. Therefore, it is necessary to find good ways to deal with the problem.

According to traditional Chinese moral values, it is the sons or daughters who should take the responsibility of caring their elderly parents. The youth should not only look after their elderly parents in material terms but also understand their loneliness and do their best to spend more time with them.

But because the family plan has been carried out for many years in China, it is a common picture that a young couple has to support four elderly parents. This trend will reach its peak in coming years. The government is responsible for guaranteeing the basic living standards of the elderly and safeguard their legitimate rights and interests and establish a multi-level old-age insurance system.

0,My English Studies(我的英语学习)

I have been learning English for more than twenty years. Recalling my English studies, I would like to share some good ways and some frustrations with you.

First, I am independent in English studies. Instead of waiting for the teacher to explain, I try to find the patterns and rules on my own.

Second, I am an active English learner. I never wait for a chance using English. I look for such a chance, and create a language environment by myself. I am willing to make mistakes and not afraid of losing face.

Try your best to enjoy the pleasure of English studies, bear in mind that “frustration gets you nowhere ”. (焦虑于事无补)
