A Pair of Red Shoes

I have ever seen a pair of red shoes with some colored butterflies on them. They were so beautiful that I like them at first glance. But I couldn’t persuade my mother to buy them for me. I had to make up my mind to realize my wish by myself. So I kept on saving money for several months. The shoes were bought at last. However, to my surprise, the shoes didn’t fit me. When I was walking, my feet were blistered from the rubbing. From then on, I didn’t dare to wear them any longer. Day by day, I am growing up. Thanks to the pair of shoes, I have set up my own philosophy. There are so many temptations all our lives, but what we choose should first suit ourselves. We can’t wrong ourselves for other’s eyes. The shoes on our feet may be neither pretty nor charming, but both of which just fit ourselves. So no matter what we may do, perhaps it isn’t interesting or after our heart s, if we devote ourselves to it, we are sure to make great success. at first glance 乍看

persuade my mother to buy them for me 说服母亲给我买鞋

make up my mind to do sth. 下定决心做某事

keep on 继续,持续

to my surprise 令我感到惊奇

thanks to the pair of shoes 由于那双鞋


The Use of Computer

According to the survey by “Robert Computing Magazine”, computer sales increased greatly from 1992 to 2002. The total sales in 1992 were shown to be less than 5 million. However, from 1992 to 2002, computer sales rose rapidly. For example, computer sold to businesses increased from 2.5 million to 22 million while computers sold for home use went from 2.0 million up to 12.5 million. Schools also bought computers, but the sales wasn’t as big as that of homes and businesses, only rising to 4.7 million. It can be predicted that more computers will be sold in the following years because computers have already come into every field in people’s lives.

How to Practice Our Spoken English

In class you need to answer your teacher’s questions. If you meet a foreigner, you’d better talk with him in English. And it is a good way to practice our spoken English. Secondly, you’d better buy a short wave radio to pick up the English programmes. There are a lot of good English language programmes broadcast on the radio. Those programmes are usually easy to receive and not difficult to understand. They are of great help to you in learning English. At last, you can find some pen-friends in English-speaking countries and write to them in English. If you have some questions, you can write them down and ask for some information you need. Thus, I’m sure every learner can learn English well.

How I Improve My Writing

I began to practice English writing a year ago. Though I’m very glad to say that I have made some progress, I still have a long way to go. Some pen friends and my classmates asked me how I improved my writing. Here I’d like to tell my story.

When I began to learn writing last term, I made many mistakes in grammar and also in idioms. I often thought in Chinese and just translated what I had in mind into English. My English teacher, Mr. Sun, helped me. He pointed out my mistakes and told me that I should try to think in English, not in Chinese, pay attention to English grammar and idioms, and use simple sentences whenever I can. I did as he said. When I finished writing, I read it very carefully and checked it up. As soon as I found out mistakes, I corrected them at once. I have kept on doing this and found I am making fewer mistakes than before. My teacher says I have improved a lot and he encourages me to continue practicing. No pains, no gains. Through nearly a year of practice, my writing has improved. I’m very lucky that two of my short English articles have been carried in the newspapers. I have become even more interested in writing. I’m an ordinary girl and I’m not very clever. But I know it is very important to keep on practicing. Practice makes perfect. So I think three things are important in learning writing: first, we must be sure of ourselves; second, we sh ould pay

attention to English grammar and idioms; third, we must keep on practicing and be more careful in writing. Do you think so?

Learning How to Swim

During summer holidays, my good friend Chuanchuan and I went to join a swimming class. Before, I only knew how to do dog paddle—like a dog falling into the water and trying to swim.

At the swimming class, my teacher told us how to really swim. First, she taught us how to do the crawl. For the crawl we had to breathe on both the left and the right sides. After that, my teacher taught us how to do backstroke. For swimming backstroke, our arms needed to go back in a circular motion. My teacher demonstrated the backstroke first before teaching, and then we followed her.

Sometimes, our teacher let us play a game called “catch the ring”. This was how we played it: someone took a rubber ring and threw it into the water, then we dived down in the water and brought it back up to the surface. We all played happily.

Now I know how to swim!
