City Life and Suburban Life

1. 最近几年越来越多的人迁往近郊居住

2. 城市生活和近郊生活各有特点

3. 比较起来,我喜欢的是…

(1)In recent years more and more homes are being pushed outwards as the activities of business, government and pleasure tend to be concentrated in the centers of the cities. (2)Although most people are reluctant to move to the outskirts of the cities, I feel like living in the suburbs.

(3)It is true that the city can provide much convenience and entertainment, the very reason people can’t bear to part with city life. (4)But the cost for

the privilege of living in the city is also high. (5)Just think of the places where we live, full of petrol fumes and toxic gases, torn by the roar of buses and lorries day and night, and thronged ceaselessly by great crowds. (6)Besides, as the housing problem in the central city gets more serious, people have to pay high rents for very tiny flats which I would certainly disdain to live in.

(7)In contrast, living near the countryside one can enjoy the clean atmosphere, the closeness to nature and the quiet, peaceful surroundings—the essentials of a healthy life. (8)Nothing can be compared, as the pace of modern life is getting quicker, with the first cock crow, the twittering of birds at dawn, and sight of the rising sun glinting on the trees and green fields.

(9)Although living in the suburbs you may suffer a little discomfort brought

about by the necessity of traveling miles to work every day, the situation will change soon as many highways and subways are being constructed.

(10)The new suburban life is fast becoming a predominant pattern of living in most cities; and with the development of traffic and the perfection of services, it will prove to hold great superiority over city life.

Newspaper as a Better Source of News

1. 现在许多人都从电视上得知天下事

2. 但我认为报纸是获取消息的更好来源

3. 其理由是…

(1)For most of us today, television has become our main source of daily news.

(2)This is unfortunate, however, because for several reasons newspapers should be regarded as a better source.

(3)It is true that television news can vividly bring into our living rooms dramatic events of singular importance, such as space launchings, natural disasters, wars and so on, but it can not cover important stories in the depth they may deserve because of its time limitation. (4)On the contrary, print news excels in its ability to devote as much space to a story as it sees fit, though it can not compete with television visually. (5)Besides, television is essentially a passive medium. (6)Whether we like a particular piece of news or not, all we have to do is sit in front of the tube and “let it happen”. (7)But a newspaper reader can select what he is interested in, skip what he thinks is boring or

irrelevant and read it any time he likes to. (8)Most importantly, if all of us get news and information exclusively from television, there will be a decline in general literacy. (9)By contrast, although to follow and absorb a newspaper article is a little bit hard as it requires a high level of mental involvement, it helps to develop one’s intellectual skills.

(10)When we consider television versus newspaper papers on the basis of nature, format and coverage, shouldn’t we think the latter is a better source of our daily news.

How to Solve the Problem of Heavy Traffic?

But now there is a variety of clothes which are elegant and fashionable. The second, with the improvement of living standards, people pay more and more attention to health. Therefore people focus on the diets which are green and pollution-free. As the same time living conditions have also been ameliorated.

Dear Michael,

You want to know sthe changes about my hometown. You know, great changes have taken place since 60 years ago.

In the past, the living conditions were very poor. There were not many buses or cars, and the roads were narrow. Usually, a big family was crowed into a small, dark house. Most families couldn’t get enough food. The communications were simple and slow. People kept in touch with their friends and relatives far away mainly by letter or telegram.

Thanks to the government, our hometown has developed rapidly in recent years. The living conditions are much better and more comfortable. The roads are wide. Some people have their own cars. Most of the people have lived in big new houses. Quite a few adults have mobile phones. Because of many good policies, I think our lives will become better and better.

Sincerely Kang Min





参考词汇:网购 shopping online; 避免做

某事 avoid doing sth; 商品 goods; 导致 cause

With the development of the Internet, many people are used to shopping online. It has become a fashion in our daily life. Some of us students also join the group. Shopping online has many advantages. Just by a click of the mouse, you can buy what you’re interested in without going outdoors. You can avoid getting tired and being trapped in the crowded people and cars and save time. When shopping online, you can choose from more varieties of goods, whose prices are generally lower.

Every coin has two sides. Its disadvantages are obvious, too. On the one hand, it’s very easy for you to buy goods different from the pictures you see on the Internert. On the other hand, shopping online may cause people to buy goods that are not badly needed. That’s a waste of money.

All in all, I love shopping online.

Recently I made a survey about the use of the electronic dictionary. My classmates think that the electronic dictionary is useful and convenient. It can also help to save time of looking up the words. The parents think the electronic dictionary is easy to carry and it’s not too expensive. Most families can afford it. But my English teacher doesn’t think we shoud use it, because she thinks its explanations for words are too simple. In my opinion, the electronic dictionary will make us lazy and we shouldn’t use it!

However, I try my best to understand them. Although they don’t allow me to make my own decisions and give me too much presure, I know that it is because they really love me and want me to have a bright future.

In order to keep a good relationship with my parents, I study hard and listen to them. I talk with them as friends, and always tell them my troubles. I also help them do some housework.

full marks满分

we had an exam yesterday and now the papers are being handed out. There’s a paper without a name on it and that student got full marks. Whom can it belong to? It can’t be a boy’s, because none of them in class can be so good and tidy. The paper must belong to a girl because its handwriting is very tidy. There are only three girls who are good at handwriting — Rose, Mary and Lucy. It might belong to Rose, but I’m not sure because she is not so good at English. It can’t be Mary’s. Although she is a top student in English, she has already had hers

in hand. So it must belong to Lucy. Today she is ill at home and she does well in English, too. Well, it must belong to her.

When they are tired or bored, they can dance to the music.
