Our School Life


I don’t think our school life is colorful. Because we’ve got so many classes every day. I wonder whether we can change our school life someday. You see, from Monday to Friday, I have to stay at school. The only relaxation is to listen to the radio or play ball games. At weekends, we need to go to school to have classes, too. I know it’s very important for us to study well now. As the saying goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” I want to step into the nature. I hope we will have more activities such as visiting museums, taking part in different kinds of contests, attending some lectures and so on. Is it only a dream?

A Day to Remember





It was Sunday. Our teacher Mr Zhu led us to a park nearby. Usually we go to the park to spend our holiday. But today we went there to take part in voluntary labor.

We got there at nine o ’clock. Mr Zhu divided us into three groups and then we began working. The students in Group One planted trees and watered flowers. The students in Group Two were busy collecting litter left by the tourist. They also cleaned the benches in the park. I was in Group Three.

interesting to know a stranger through the Internet. As a matter of fact, only a few of them have succeeded in getting a real good friend in this way. Most of them have been cheated.

Water Pollution


With the development of industry, water pollution is becoming more and more serious now. The polluted water not only kills fish, it is also harmful to our health. Many people get sick because they drink the polluted water. In some rivers the water is so dirty that they can even kill plants.

Is School Education Enough


We go to school for education. We learn Maths, English, Chinese, Physics and other subjects. School education is necessary and important. However, no one can learn everything from school.

Even a very good teacher can not tell his students everything they want to know.

Edison didn’t have much schooling, but he became a famous scientist. It doesn’t mean that school education is not important. He knew how to learn new things by himself. As a matter of fact, many things can be learned outside school by the students themselves.

How to Learn English Well


English is one of the most important subjects in middle school. Almost everyone knows that we should learn English well, but few of us know how to learn it well. Karl Marx has set a good example for us. He once said: “When one is learning a foreign language, he must use the foreign language.” In this way, he could use the several languages. A saying goes, “Practice makes perfect. ” When we learn English, we should read more, speak more, listen to English from time to time and practice writing every day. Don ’t be afraid of making mistakes. Only in this way can we learn it well.

They encouraged me to study hard in order to be an educated sports man. Now I know clearly what I will be. I said, “I will never lose heart.

Before we cross the road, we must stop and look both ways. Don’t run red lights. It is very dangerous. When we want to cross the road, we must wait until the road is clear. Help the children or very old people to cross the road. We must obey the rules and set good examples.

Mobile Phone at School


In many middle schools, it’s quite common to see some students using mobile phones here and there. Through some school forbid students to use them at school, many students still think they have the right to use mobile phones.

I don ’t think it is necessary for us students to use mobile phones to keep in touch with each other. We all know mobile phones give unpleasant noise when we are having a lesson. Besides, using mobile phone costs a lot of money. We are students. Our main task is to study. So we should put away our mobiles phone and focus our attention on studies.

A Postcard

Dear Susan,

I arrive here yesterday by plane. It is the peak season for tourism. Li Jiang is an amazing town with a long history. In this old town, there are lots of old stone bridges over the river. By the river stand many stone houses. The houses are of minority style.

Li Jiang is especially beautiful in the rain. Just a moment ago we had a storm. But now the sun is peering from behind the clouds. The sunlight plays on the water. Now I am sitting in the bar near the river, the sun streams into the room. How beautiful.

Tomorrow, we’ll climb the Yu Long mountain.

Best regards!

I was a little afraid at first, but my friend encouraged me and taught me. Little by little, I could swim a short distance. It was great fun to be able to float in the water.

A Letter to My Canadian Friend

Dear Lucy,

Thank you for your letter. I am sure you want to know what the Spring Festival is like. Now I’ll tell you something about it. The Spring Festival is the most important traditional festival in China. Many customs have been connected with it, such as pasting Spring Festival couplets on the door; staying up late or all night on the eve of the festival; family get-together supper; watching fireworks; paying New Year calls; enjoying Chinese dumplings, lion dances, dragon dances and so on. Isn’t it interesting?

I am sure you will learn more about the Spring Festival if you come to China next time. Hoping to hear from you soon.

A Letter to My Parents

12 July

Dear Parents,

Hi. I arrive in Beijing yesterday by plane. We are staying in a hotel near the Tian An Men Square. So we can see the ceremony of raising the national flag this morning. Yesterday afternoon, we visited the Great Wall. It is a real wonder. I couldn’t help singing when I reached the top of the Great Wall. I was awarded a prize for successfully climbing to the top. It ’s really amazing to overlook the Beijing City from the Wall. Tomorrow we shall visit the Summer Palace.

Best wishes!
