She came into my life and taught me the will to succeed, and always learn as possible as I can about the world around me.
Miss Wang was slim and beautiful, and always had a sweet smile on her face. So it was natural that the first impression she gave me was that she was kind and thoughtful. I’ve learnt a lot from her and I’ll always remember her.

So this book is very helpful to people. We should learn more from this book and other books.

There are four seasons in a year: spring、summer、autumn and winter. I love them very much but the most 5
favorite season is spring.
Spring is a wonderful season. It's warmer than winter, cooler than summer and more lovely than autumn. In spring, leaves turn green and flowers become beautiful. They come out of the ground. In spring, we can play outside all day. The air is fresh and it makes us comfortable. I love spring because it gets warmer. Spring is the time for planting. The ground becomes softer and warmer from the rain and the sun.
19. My Favorite Subject我最喜欢的科目
I like math best because it is logical. Math helps to exercise brains, and makes us smarter. Math can be used in all fields of science, and so it is said that math is the mother of all subjects.
However, math is not easy to study. It requires a high degree of intelligence. But what is the most important in studying math is hard work. Though one isn’t clever enough, he can study it through hard work. Many facts have proved this point. Math is a challenge and that is why I like it.
20. My Favorite Vehicle 我最喜爱的交通工具
I like riding very much. I often go to school by bike. When I go on a trip, I enjoy riding a bike. It's so wonderful and interesting. Cars usually produce terrible gas. And our environment has become worse and worse now. It's our duty to protect our environment. Riding a bike can not only protect our environment but also save money. What's more, riding a bike can keep us healthy .And it's easy to park. I will keep on riding a bike. It is good for my health. And it is popular in the public now.
21.The Course I Like Best of the Long-distance Education 远程教育中我最喜欢的一门课
I am engaged in long distance education. My web-based courses are English, Chinese, Computer, Math, Politics, etc. I like English best. We can join online discussion forums, but it is very difficult for me to understand what the speaker says. Every day we complete our homework on the computer and send our homework to the teacher, though sometimes he or she is not online. He or she will solve the difficulties and puzzles in the teaching. I love my TV University life.
22. My Family Life 我的家庭生活
I was born in a warm family. Dad and Mum are very kind to me and never ask me to do anything I dislike to. My parents are always very busy. So, I usually try my best to do something I can at home like housework and so on. In my opinion, love and duty are both the most important facts for a family, not only mine, but also for all of the families in the world. I love my parents as they love me, and we keep trusting and respecting one another.
23. My School Life 我的学校生活
I don't think our school life is colorful, because we have got so many classes every day. I have to stay at school from Monday to Friday. I only listen to the radio or play ball games to relax. At weekends, we have classes, too.
I know it's very important for us to study well now. As the saying goes, "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy." I want to enjoy 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?

bring me to go swimming.
I liked swimming very much. Thank them for teaching me swimming. I love my parents. I do think it is one of the best years in my whole life.
26. A Day to Remember / An Unforgettable Experience 难忘的一天/难忘的经历
It was Sunday. Our teacher, Mr. Zhu, led us to a park to take part in voluntary labor. We got there at nine o’clock. Mr. Zhu divided us into three groups. Group One was responsible to plant trees and water flowers. Group Two were busy collecting rubbish left by the tourists. I was in Group Three. We went to the children’s playground and cleaned all the equipment there. We worked very hard. At about eleven we finished work. We all were tired but very happy. I will never forget that day.
27. Never Give Up 永不放弃
I have a firm belief that I would never give up if I failed in anything, which my father told me. When I was young, my father always told me to try my best and never give up. When I fell, he encouraged me to rise by myself. When I failed in my exam, he told me to study harder to get a better result. When I was sad, he cheered me up by new hope. Whenever I meet trouble, my father’s word ―Never give up!‖ helped me to get over difficulties over and over again. I am very thankful to my father for what he has taught me.
28. My First Year at College 我上大学的第一年
My first year at college is a time filled with expectation, anxieties, and discoveries. College is much different from high school. The most interesting first year at college is for those living away from home. What can we expect as we go into the wonderful world of higher education? The first thing I notice is the schoolwork. It is heavier and more difficult than before. The main challenges of the schoolwork are large amounts of reading and ―endless‖ writing. However, there is more freedom at college and one has to depend on himself. Therefore, it is very important to learn to be responsible.
29. Talking about Myself/ Self Introduction （谈谈/介绍我自己）
My name is Winy. I'm 25 years old. I live in the beautiful city of Ningbo.

I'm kind-hearted. If you need help, please come to me. I hope we can be good friends！
1. Self-study 自学
As adult students in China University of Petroleum, self-study becomes very important. According to me, there are several skills of self-study.
Firstly, I always make a study plan at the beginning of a new term. Secondly, I often prepare every unit before the lesson. Thirdly, I try my best to finish the homework after class. Fourthly, I always go over what I have learnt in class at home. Without review, you will forget what you have learnt as quickly as possible. So reviewing is helpful in understanding and memorizing what you’ve learnt.
Those skills above help me a lot in self-study.
2. Why I Like Learning English 我为什么喜欢学习英语
Why I like learning English? The reasons are as follows:
On one hand, English is very useful. English is the most widely used language in the world. If we make a visit to foreign countries or do business with foreigners, we need to talk with them in English. On the other 7
hand, with China becoming stronger, we have more chances to go abroad. We can learn to know the English-speaking countries much better if we can speak English.
Above all, English is useful and important, we must learn English.
3. My English Study 我的英语学习
English is always my favorite subject and I am good at English. I would like to share four good studying habits with you.
Firstly, I always remember 20 new words every day, and never give up. Secondly, I always go over grammar points. Thirdly, I always read an English article in China Daily every day. Fourthly, I always write an English article every week and ask teacher to correct that for me to improve my writing.
If you do things above, I am sure your English will also be improved.
4. My Study Plan 我的学习计划
A new term is coming. In order to study English well, I have made the following study plan.
Firstly, I’ll try to remember 20 words every day. Secondly, I’ll go over grammar points. Thirdly, I’m going to form a habit of reading an English article in China Daily every day. Fourthly, I’ll try to write an English article every week and ask teacher to correct that for me to improve the writing level. Fifthly, I will listen to English radio as often as possible to improve my listening.
I hope I can manage to master English in the above ways and I’ll study hard for that.
5. How to Overcome Difficulties in My English Studies 如何克服英语学习中的困难
I have made a lot of improvements / progress in English study. The following is my way to overcome the difficulties.
Firstly, I do half an hour’s morning reading every day and I find it very useful to open my mouth. And then I usually spend another half hour listening to English programs like VOA or BBC to improve my listening. Lastly, I attend a full-time English class to improve grammar. The teacher advises me to buy a book, called Advanced English Grammar. It helps me a lot with my English study.
These above are ways to overcome my difficulties in English studies.
6. Difficulty in Studying English 英语学习中的困难
Nowadays, English is widely used in the world. Therefore the following two difficulties should be paid more attention.
First, I think new words are the biggest difficulty for us to deal with. There is no easy way in keeping a word in our memories for a long period of time. No pains, no gains. We must spend more time in remembering them. Then the next difficulty is writing. It is a good idea that we write some English articles to show our ideas. In this way we will improve our writing ability step by step.
7. why I Study English为什么我学习英语
Why I study English? The reasons are as follows:
On one hand, English is very useful. English is the most widely used language in the world. If we make a visit to foreign countries or do business with foreigners, we need to talk with them in English. On the other hand, now we have more chances to go abroad. We can learn to know the English-speaking countries much better if we can speak English.
As English is useful and important, I need to study English.
1. About Doing Physical Exercise 论体育锻炼
Proper physical exercises help us a lot in many ways. When doing physical exercise, we get the chance to train almost all parts of the body. There is no doubt that proper exercise activities keep our body healthy. Besides, exercise can enrich our life and mental heath. Through doing physical exercises, everyone can learn that on the playground he not only do it for himself but also for his team. Exercises teach us about thinking for other people, doing things with other people and being cheerful to failure.
But exercise can do some harm to those people who can not plan their activities properly. Too hard training may harm their bodies, make them tired, and even cause them to be sick.
In general, I love and enjoy exercise. It can add happiness to my everyday life when I do in a proper way.
2. Sports 论运动
Just as lots of teenagers are crazy about popular music, I love basketball. It’s part of my life. I began to play basketball in my childhood. I still remember the good old days when I played with my classmates after school. Later on, as I grew up, almost everything changed, but this sport—playing basketball remained and my love of it grew even stronger.
I love this sport because it brings joy and health to my life. When I got tired from office work, I went to the sports ground and felt full of energy. If there were worries and troubles from daily life, I went to the sports ground. All my worries and troubles went away except basketball. It is basketball that keeps me in good shape and mood.
I love sports and I love playing basketball.
3. Health and Wealth 论健康与财富
Which is more important, wealth or health? Different people have different ideas. Some people like wealth better, believing that money can not bring everything, but without it, one can do nothing. In order to get more money they can do anything. However, other people regard health as more important. Once health is lost, it is no use having a lot of money.
As to me, I love wealth, but I value health more. Everybody wants to live a happy and comfortable life, so they try their best to earn money. But if their health are damaged, how can they be happy? Without health money becomes meaningless.
In my opinion, no one agrees that a wealthy person without good health can be happy. So, just do our best to keep us healthy.
4. Ways to Keep Fit / How to Keep Healthy 如何保持健康
It is very important to have good health. With good health, we can enjoy our life more happily. Without it, we can do nothing. For me, there are four ways to keep healthy.
Firstly, we should have our breakfast in the morning, such as eggs, breads and so on. Secondly, we should have a little sleep at noon. It does good to our health. Thirdly, sports exercises are necessary in the afternoon. Doing some running or playing basketball, football or volleyball is useful in building a strong body. And lastly, we can have a happy feeling in the evening by listening to the music.
Only in the above ways can we keep healthy.
5. On Money 论金钱
What is money? Someone says it is nothing, while others say it is the most important thing in their life. Without it they can’t live any longer. Money is not everything, but without it you can do nothing. In my opinion, it is good to have money but we should also hold a right opinion to it.
A story goes that a rich man wanted to find happiness, at last he found it in a poor man’s life. Sometimes we think that the rich are the happiest ones in the world. However, it is not always true. The more money they have, the more worries they feel. What’s more, there are many things in this world that cannot be bought by money. In fact, without money, we can also have an interesting and exciting life. So having lots of money or 9
little money is not the important thing, the important thing is whether we are happy or not.
In brief, as long as we enjoy our life, it doesn’t matter whether we are rich or poor.
6. About Television / Television 论电视
Television is one of the most important things in our life. It has many good sides. Firstly, it makes us know everyday news of the outside world. Secondly, television provides lessons for learners, and it has brought joy and happiness into people’s lives.
Unluckily, television also has some bad sides. For example, some television programs are harmful to the young. Violent movies are shown on television. Children regard the killers as heroes, and they follow their examples, so more killings and crimes are happening in this world.
Therefore young people should learn to get rid of the bad sides of television and learn to make use of the good sides.
7. About TV Ads 论电视广告
Today more and more ads are seen on television. It’s difficult to find a television program without ads. Food, clothes -- everything you can think of --are shown on television. Sometimes we can also see some public welfare ads, asking people to respect the old or to protect the environment.
As far as I am concerned, I am with TV ads because most of them are interesting and full of information. But there is no doubt that some of them are boring and misleading.
Therefore, I think television stations should improve ads and made them more interesting.
8. Newspapers 论新闻报纸
As we all know, now most people enjoy reading newspapers in their spare time. Reading newspapers is a part of our daily life at present.
Reading newspapers is very useful for people. On the one hand, newspapers can tell us the latest news about politics, economics and military home and abroad. On the other hand, by reading newspapers we can get more knowledge.
With the rapid development of modern society, we must read newspapers in order to learn what is happening in our country and around the world, so that we can make greater progress in the future.
9. Advantages and Disadvantages of the Mobile Phone 手机的优缺点
Mobile phone is one of the most important things in our life. (And it has become a need.) It has many advantages. Firstly, Mobile phone is useful. It is easy and handy to call wherever one goes and call the one however far away he is. Secondly, Mobile phone is handy. Whenever one meets trouble or something very important, one can make a call right away. Thirdly, Mobile phone has various functions. It is not only used to make calls but also take photos, listen to music, watch movies and so on.
However, the mobile phone also has some disadvantages. On one hand, it costs a lot to pay the bills. On the other hand, the radiation from mobile phone does harm to people’s health.
I believe its disadvantages will disappear in the future.
10. My Opinion on Cell Phones 我对手机的看法
Cell phones play an important role in people’s daily life, but every coin has its two sides.
To start with, it’s easy for cell phone users to contact others at any time. Secondly, cell phone is a helpful friend. With a cell phone in hand, one can easily surf the net, watch movies, and even do shopping.
However, the cell phone has many disadvantages. For one thing, its bill is very costly. For another, the radiation from cell phones does harm to the user’s health.
In my opinion, with its costs being greatly reduced, the development of cell phones will have a brighter future.
11. The Computer 论计算机
Nowadays, computers are becoming more and more popular. It has become one of the most important things in our life. It has many advantages.
Firstly, computers can help different people in different ways. They can help children with lessons and homework, help students and teachers do calculations in their study and work. Secondly, they can help engineers and experts to design a bridge or a building. Thirdly, computers can offer fun and happiness to people with the internet games, movies, etc.
In conclusion, computers have indeed become a good friend of people.
12. The Internet 论网络
The internet has become one of the most important things in our life and a symbol of modern society. No one can imagine life without internet. It has many good sides. Firstly, through the internet, we can send a message to a friend or a relative in a faraway place in a few seconds. Secondly, we can talk to each other or even see each other online. Thirdly, we can do shopping without going out and we can stay home and do business with foreign companies. In fact, we can do many things more easily.
However, the internet has also many bad sides. Young people love internet games and fail to study well. What’s more, the internet is full of false information and lots of people have been cheated by online information.
As far as I am concerned, the internet has made my life much easy. Firstly, I can meet my friends by chatting online and sending e-mails. In addition, I can do a lot of shopping online without stepping outside of home. I enjoy this way of life.
In brief, I can’t imagine what society will be like without the internet.
13. Water and Life 水与生活
We are living in the modern society, and we cannot live without water. Yet fresh water, among others, is becoming less and less, because industries develop very fast everywhere in the world.
Just as sunshine is important to life, so is fresh water. Without fresh water, our society would stop. So we need to save it as we treat our life, but how? First, our government should have a good plan for the use of fresh water and develop industries that use less water. Second, waste water must be reused. Finally, every one of us should try his best to save water.
14. Friendship 论友谊
Friendship is a kind of human relations. It is a human activity to make friends. When in trouble, we need friends to offer us help and support. With success gained, we also need friends to share our joys. Friendship is one of the greatest joys that we can enjoy. It means readiness to help friends in trouble.
In short, when we have formed friendship, we ought to value it. Only in this way can we develop real friendship all through our life
15. Water Pollution 论水污染
With the development of modern agriculture and industry, more and more waste water flows into rivers. It has caused serious pollution. The river is becoming so dirty that no living things can live in it. The river is giving off a terrible smell. We hope that measures should be taken to deal with the situation. Our government should start building various equipments and encourage scientists to work out more and better ways to reduce the 11
pollution of water. Water is the source of our lives. It is very important to protect water.
16. Private Cars in China 论中国的私家车
As time goes on, many large changes happen in people’s lives. One change is that private cars begin to be very popular in our country. It has many advantages. Firstly, it makes people’s lives very convenient. It can drive people to wherever they want. Secondly, private cars help us save much time. We don’t have to wait for the bus. Thirdly, private cars are also a symbol of wealth and power. E
However, private cars have many disadvantages as well. For one thing, private cars cause serious air pollution. For the other thing, more private cars make the problem of traffic jam much worse.
As far as I am concerned, the advantages of the private cars will be more than the disadvantages. The problems will be solved finally.
17. About Tourism 论旅游
I love traveling very much. In my mind, traveling not only broadens my horizons but also opens my eyes to the world. What's more, it makes me full of energy. You can go to Disneyland and experience what it’s like to be ―a child‖ again! You can visit one of the ―seven wonders of the world,‖ such as the Grand Canyon and feel the greatness of nature! Just forget all troubles and worries that you have in your mind.
Experience is a type of living knowledge. You’ll be sure to experience many new things while traveling. You don’t even need a tour guide if you long for more freedom. Just don’t forget to bring your bag!
18. Bad Manners in Public 论公共场合的不良行为
Although we consider ourselves as most polite, bad manners can still be found here and there. For example, some people who ride bicycles run the red traffic lights, many passengers throw away waste paper and plastic bags in public places, and some tourists write bad things in travel places, they even spit on the street. In the cinema, some audiences talk loudly on cell phones in front of others.
I’m strongly against talking loudly in the cinema, for this behavior shows no respect at all to others; what’s worse, it upsets the audience who are in the mood of having fun.
19. Living in a Big City论大城市的生活
Thousands of people go into cities, especially big cities. Big cities can attract many people. First, in big cities, people can easily get a job to make a living. Then, there are many facilities which make people feel very convenient in life.
As for me, I like living in a big city because it can provide me with move convenient living conditions and a good job. Besides, by living in a big city I can get the latest information coming from every field which will make me wiser.
However, big cities are facing problems and the biggest one is traffic. There are too many people and cars. The traffic is heavy, especially during the rush hours. But I still enjoy my life living in a big city.
20. Living in a Big Family 论大家庭的生活
I live in a big family with four generations together. There are five people in my family. We share a three-bedroom flat together. My grandparents have got retired and enjoy the love from the grandchild—me. My parents both work in a bank. I study in China University of Petroleum and like the college life very much. Every weekday, we are busy with our own business. But on weekends, our whole family will gather together with Mum cooking delicious food. I love my family and enjoy living in a big family.
21. My Expectation of the Long-Distance Education我期望的远程教育
Internet is getting into peoples life and becoming more and more popular. Experts are now working on setting up a national long-distance educational system in China to provide education opportunities by Internet.
In reality, the education through Internet plan has been taking shape. Some universities have already got 12
involved in long-distance education of some regions, catching the attention of many educators and computer experts worldwide. Others have just connected their campus computers for teaching and research, and provided more opportunities for learners.
I think the long-distance education will be developing rapidly. It will soon cover all the corners of China and finally be popular all over the world.
22. My View on Luck我对运气的看法
In my opinion luck is one of the elements of success. In our society, we always hear somebody complaining that luck is not for him or her. As I see, people who complained have not made full preparations to meet luck when it comes. And luck also means opportunity; it always comes quietly and goes by without being noticed. First of all, you have to be aware of the opportunity when it comes. Besides, you have to work hard and use your head, then you can grasp the opportunity and make good use of it when you meet it. If you insist on working hard, you will be successful some day. Because luck is always for the one who have made great efforts and got prepared.
23. Where to Live? ( In city or countryside) （要住在城市还是乡村?)
Some people like living in the city because city life has many advantages. They think there are more job opportunities in cities, life there is more colorful and meaningful than that in the country, and there are more conveniences in cities for people to enjoy.
But some other people prefer to live in the countryside. They say life in the countryside is closer to nature and better for their health, life there is quieter and that country people are more honest than city people.
I would like to live in a city when I am young to earn enough money, and I live in the countryside when I am old for having a quiet life.
24. Smoking is Hazardous to Health吸烟危害健康
Smoking is bad to our health. It is dangerous to our health. It can affect our health and make us die. Smoking can cause many diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and lung diseases. Smoking makes smokers not sleep well. This affects our daily life. Also, smoking can affect people’s family relationship. We all know the fact that smoking causes a lot of harms. Because of that, I think smoking is bad for health and people should stop smoking.
25. Can Money Buy Happiness? 金钱能买来幸福吗？
Can Money Buy Happiness? Answers are different among people. Some believe that money is the source of happiness, because money provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, and clothes for the needy. While others hold that money is the root of badness, because it is money that drives a person to lie, cheat, steal, and, worst of all, to murder.
In my opinion, money is necessary to being rich, but not necessarily to happiness. Happiness is a state of mind, not something that can be bought.
26. The Digital Products 数字化产品
Nowadays, digital products are becoming more and more popular among people. Take me for example, the first thing I do after waking up is open my cell phone to check my text messages and read the latest news. Then listen to music on my iPod on my way to school. At the end of the day, I enjoy watching TV programs, or surfing the net.
Why are we so fond of those digital products? The answer is simple. They are doing us good --- making our lives comfortable and convenient. These two key factors show the trend of modern age--- the wide use of 13
27. Buy a car or not 是否买一辆车
I will buy a car if it is needed to use in my job. But not simply to show how much money I have. Most of us want to buy a car, but I just want to have a bicycle. Traveling by bike is the cheapest way to travel besides walking. Not only does it save time but also it saves money. If you had a car, you should buy gas for your car. If not, you would have to go to the station to buy tickets. However, riding a bike is cheaper and more convenient. Besides, riding a bike has a good effect on our health. For example, we can take exercise all the way we ride and our muscle will be stronger and stronger. Ride a bike as possible as we can and we'll keep healthy. What's more, bike does better than car in environment. Because it hardly makes noises and it doesn't pollute the air.
28.Choosing a Job选择一份工作
The first thing I would consider when choosing a job is location. As time is important, I think we should find the best way to save time. I don't want to waste my time on travel to work everyday. It means less time to sleep, to do work at home, and have a little fun with the family at night. Time is really important, and I am sick and tired of taking trains or cars. But if I drive by myself, it still won't make any change that I will enjoy it. It can change our mood, maybe because of the traffic. And because of the traffic we might get late for work. There are so many things to think about when the location is a problem.
29. City Life and Suburbs Life 城里生活与郊区生活
Life in the city is very different from life in the villages and on the farms. People in large cities are much more careful to respect the privacy of the others. Sometimes this feeling seems to be one of not care, but it is a tradition of city life to avoid one's interest about the personal affairs of strangers. Villagers and farmers are likely to show a great deal of interest in all their neighbors. Opportunities for bright young people are greater in the cities and a great number of people leaving the villages and farms to find jobs in large cities.
30. East or West, Home is Best 金窝银窝,不如自家草窝
Wherever I go, I like my home best. I have a beautiful home .It is big and clean. In my home, there are two bedrooms, a living room, a study, a bathroom and a kitchen. My father often stays in the living room. He watches TV there. My mother often stays in the kitchen. She cooks there and she cooks well. And I often study in the study. There are many books in my study. I like reading very much. Only at home, I feel very comfortable. I really enjoy staying home.
31. Plant More Trees 种更多的树
As deserts are spreading over the world , trees are more and more important to our home—earth. Planting trees now is not only an activity held in primary schools but also an urgent need for us. Planting trees is the basic thing to provide a green and healthy environment. Trees, as they are green in color, can make a city or place more beautiful. What’s more, it is much more valuable in avoiding noises, preventing sandstorms and deserts. It can bring us back to a beautiful earth. Therefore, we should plant more trees.
32. Health and Eating Habit 健康与饮食
Eating habits are closely related to health. In order to keep healthy, we should pay more attention to our eating habits. My suggestions for a good eating habit are as follows:
First, don’t eat too much or too little for each meal. Eating too much will cause fatness and eating too little, lacking of energy.
Second, don’t eat between meals. Sometimes we like eating biscuits and chips before the meal time; as a result, we lose our desire for lunch or dinner.
Third, eat more vegetables and fruits everyday.
In short, a good eating habit leads to a healthy life.
33. Is Stress a Bad Thing 压力是坏事吗？
Are you afraid of stress? Today I want to talk about stress. Let me share my opinion with you. Some people regard stress as a bad thing. They are afraid of stress. But other people think stress is a good thing for them. In my eyes, I will regard it as a gift. At first, stress encourages me a lot. It seems to tell me I have to work hard. Secondly, proper stress makes me more confident. I still believe I will do better than others. Finally, if someone gives me a lot of stress, it shows he cares for me. I will work harder to make him happy. At last, I want to say if you have so much pressure, finding proper ways to deal with it is the most important. Don’t be nervous. Don’t be afraid of it! Believe yourself! Then you will find everything is very easy.
34. High School Life and College Life 高中生活和大学生活
Briefly, college life differs from high school life in three ways.
First, in middle school, we did not live on campus, but at college, we have to live on it. Next, in high school our teachers showed us how to solve every problem. At college, however, we are left to solve problems by ourselves. Finally, since we didn't live on campus in high school, it was usually easy to keep a friendly relationship with our classmates. Yet, at college, as we live and study together, there must be some disagreement in opinions, life styles, etc. So we have to learn to get on well with each other.
Although I often recall my high school life, I like college life more.

I plan to stay there for a week and travel with a tour group. I believe I will enjoy myself there.

There are lots of historical buildings there, especially those of Qin Dynasty.

How are you? My name is Li Hua. I'm a middle school student. I'm living in Shanghai now. I like collecting stamps. After school, I often play football or do some other sports. What's more, I like English very much and I can sing a few English songs. By the way, some of my classmates want to have their pen friends, too. Can you help us?
I haven't been to any foreign countries yet, so I hope I'll visit your country soon.
(get up late; call; get to; many people; do exercise; read; lake; fly)
Last Sunday, I got up very late. After having my breakfast, I called Jack to go to park with me, and he agreed happily. We met at the gate of the park and then went inside to play. We saw many people there. Some were doing exercise, some were reading books under the tree, others were dancing on the square. There's also a very beautiful lake in the park. It was just like a mirror. Jack and I bought two kites. The wind was so strong that we began to fly kites on the grass. We really had a very happy day in the park!
