An exciting trip 激动人心的旅行

I have just received a letter from my brother, Tim. He is in Australia. He has been there for six months. Tim is an engineer. He is working for a big firm and he has already visited a great number of different places in Australia. He has just bought an Australian car and has gone to Alice springs, a small town in the centre of Australia. He will soon visit Darwin. From there, he will fly to Perth. My brother has never been abroad before, so he is finding this trip very exciting.

Dear Editor:

[引出话题]I’m a senior three student.I’m writing to tell you my opinion onwhethermiddle school students can go to school with mobile phones.[赞成]I think they can do that.Because students can keep in touch with their friends and family wherever they are. Besides, the mobile phone is a way to have fun.

[反对] However, every coin has 2 sides. There are some problems with using mobile phones. The ring of phones can disturb teachers and students in the classroom. What's more, some students can spend too much time and money on phone calls and sending messages.

[个人观点] In conclusion, I suggest students not use phones in the classroom. Also, as it is expensive, the owner should take good care of it.

Yours sincerely,

Li Hua


[调查内容] A survey is taken onpublic opinions of the fact thatmany parents spend a large amount of money sending their children to study abroad, some of whom are middle school students.

[调查结果]From it we can see that38 percent of those surveyed thinkit is worth the money letting children study abroad to get a better education so that they can get pay in return in the future.However,not all are for it / some are against it.62% of themhold the view thatit is difficult for young people to live and study in a foreign country. It’s easy for them to fall / get into some bad habits and the cost of education in another country is ten times as much as that at home.

[解决措施]The survey shows thatthe government should set up different kinds of schools to meet the demands of different children.(句型do something /take measures / steps about sth.to do sth)


Middle school students have some ideas about their future jobs.

The most striking contrast isin teaching: 30percent of the girlswould like tobecome teachers while only 5percent of the boys want to do the job. 20 percent of the boyswant todo business and another 20 percent want to become lawyers, while girlsmake up15percent in these two fields. What boys like to do mostis tobecome managers and the second largest group would like to be scientists.Besides teaching, the second choice for girls isto be scientists and managers. The number is not small. Girlsalso expect toshow their abilities in these two fields.


Dear editor,

I’m a middle school student.I once had a very happy family, but everything has changedbecause of my father.

Heused tobe a very good doctor and was often praised by his patients. He took good care of the family and shared thehousework with my mother everyday.

However, he isnowquite a different person. He plays mahjong all night and often quarrels with my mother. I just can’t concentrate on my studies and my grades are coming down. I’m very much worried and I’m afraid it will destroy my family as well as my father.

Could you tell me what to do? I’m looking forward to your reply. Thank you very much.

One day during the summer holidays, I met my classmate Li Ming, whose nickname is Tao taopi. We chatted for a while as we walked. I asked him where he would go during the holidays. He replied that he had to stay at home studying. Then I’d like to know why he didn’t go out for a tour.Much to my surprise, he told me that it was just because he failed to be accepted by key universities.

In my opinion/Personally/ I think, traveling during the holidays not only increase a student’s knowledge of his or her motherland but also makes life meaningful.What’s more, at the present time, we students are suffering a lot both at home and school. Why not go out to get relaxed.


We want our schoolbags lighter

[图画内容]The picture shows usa schoolboy and a big woman. The boy is wearing a pair of glasses and carrying a big heavy bag. The woman is taking some exercise. The boy is saying to the woman jokingly: “Mum, if you carry the schoolbag for me, I’m sure you will easily lose weight….”

[社会实际]It’s quite common thatChinese students are overburdened with the lessons and homework. What we do every day is to listen to the teachers’ lectures, take notes and do our homework which seems endless.

[个人想法]We do hopeour teachers will help us get more knowledge with fewer lectures, exercises and less homework. Only in this way can we have time to do sports every day. Then we will be mentally and physically healthy.


Yesterday afternoon I went to the park. It so happened that I saw a touching event.

At that time there were some people boating on the lake. A girl and her parents were taking photos. All of a sudden, the little girl fell into the lake as a result of carelessness. Obviously she couldn’t swim and was struggling in the water. Her parents cried for help. Hearing the cry, a young man immediately rushed to the bank and jumped into the water without taking off his clothes. He swam to the drowning girl and managed to push her to the bank.At last the girl was saved. The girl’s parents were very grateful to the young man. Many people were greatly moved by the young man’s deeds.

What a kind and brave young man!


Boys and girls,

May I have your attention, please?At the end of 2004, a strong earthquakehitthe west part of Indonesia, which brought on a terrible tsunami to some areas of western Asia. This disaster has caused millions of deaths and destroyed many beautiful cities. How terrible things are!Besides, millions more who have become homeless are in great need of help now.

At present many countries all over the world including China have sent rescue teams there and thousands of people in every corner of the world are donating money to show their concern for them.

It is true that many natural disasters can’t be avoided sometimes. But at least we can do something to help the people in the tsunami-hit areas. So let’s offer our pocket money to them!Thank you.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to our school! Now let me introduce something aboutthe changes that have taken place in our class.

We used to listen and take notes in class, but had no time to think for ourselves. Because we were not interested in the lessons, we often felt sleepy while listening. After school we had to finish much homework, unable to have some sports.

However, things are different now.With the help of computers, the lessons are so lively and interesting that the students are active to answer the questions instead of falling asleep. As a result, we have made greater progress than before, though we spend less time doing our homework. And we can enjoy ourselves after class.

The good teaching method is popular with all of us. We will try our best to study even harder.

That’s all. Thank you!
