Ladies and gentlemen,
It‟s my honor to stand here and say something about friendship.
First, I think everyone needs friends and is eager to get friendship.When you are happy, you can share your happiness with your friends and when you are sad, you can complain to your friends.If you are arrogant, your friends can persuade you and they can make you confident and brave when you are discouraged.
Second, as we all know, friendship is valuable.It can touch your heart and give you hope.Many people are proud of having a good friend.We must cherish our friends when we are happy with our friends.We should try our best to protect the friendship from being hurt.We will meet a lot of friends in our life.We should find the people who can understand us and share not only happiness but also sadness.When you lose it, both you and your friend will feel very sorrowful.So you can‟t give up those friends, please don‟t forget to keep in touch with your old friends, because staying with old friends is cherishable.
Finally, just as an old saying goes, love comes and goes but friendship stays.It‟s sweet and poetic, full of tears, hopes and happiness. So let‟s cherish friendship!
That‟s all.Thank you for listening.

I‟m glad to receive your letter asking for my advice on how to learn Chinese well. Here are a few suggestions.First, it is important to take a Chinese Course, as you‟ll be able to learn from teachers and practice with your fellow students. Then, it also helps to

Besides, it should be a good idea to learn and sing Chinese songs, because by doing so you‟ll learn and remember Chinese words more easily. You can also make more Chinese friends.They will tell you a lot about China and help you learn Chinese.
Try and write me in Chinese next time.

Tourism is now becoming a booming industry in many countries.
It is obvious that it leads to the development of hotels and shopping facilities, and this creates jobs for the local people—jobs which would not otherwise exist.Since visitors are especially fond of examples of local crafts, a number of new industries tend to be developed to meet this demand.
Still, the arrival of visitors always leads to improvements in ports, airports and roads.Local people then benefit from these improvements themselves, and meanwhile, the amusement parks, zoos and other amenities(文娱方便设施) gradually develop to attract more and more tourists.
With the frequent contact between people from different places, science is bound to be promoted, possibly leading to the better understanding of people all over the world.

The Great Wall
The Great Wall, which runs across North China like a huge dragon, is the longest wall on the earth.It‟s actually over 6,000 kilometers long now.It‟s one of the wonders in the world.
The Great Wall has a history of more than 2000 years.The first part was built during the Spring and Autumn Period.All the walls were joined up in Qin Dynasty.It was very
difficult to build such a long wall without any modern machines.All the work was done by hand.Thousands of people died while building the wall.Thus the Great Wall came into existence.
Since then, it has been rebuilt and repaired many times.Now the Great Wall, the admiration of the world, has taken on a new look.It‟s visited by large numbers of people from all parts of the country and the world.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of the Internet
The following aspects could best illustrate the advantages of the Internet. Net surfers (网上冲浪者) in different countries can share interesting knowledge and the latest information. Besides, The Internet has provided a major opportunity to buy and sell merchandise (商品).What is more, people may get medical help or even vote on the Internet .Its advantages seem countless.
Behind all this glowing talk, however, are some problems. Internet makes people passive by stopping them making their own entertainment. So much that when there is a breakdown or jam, people may find that World Wide Web turns into World Wide Wait. What is worse, some children have access to the scenes of violence and sex. Apart from these, it can be affected by viruses(病毒) and hackers (黑客).
We should handle its problems, meanwhile we should exploit its potential as
well .With proper management of Internet people ought to experience more fruits of the information revolution. All the wisdom of the ages, all the information that has enlightened mankind for centuries, should be available to us with the healthy development of the Internet.

The passage narrates that koalas who are repeatedly awoken from their deep sleep are unhappy and complaining for tourists taking photos. The author appeals to us to be more kind to animals.
The reasons why tourists like taking photos of the animals in the zoo perhaps vary from people to people. Some think it a happy reminder of their visit to the zoo or the animals, while others may consider it just sort of fun to have. But anyway they may not share the deep feelings of the animals.
If I were in the same position as the animal in the zoo, my reaction would be very severe strongly against being photographed. Not having peaceful surroundings to sleep, don‟t you suffer restless and fidgets? No doubt we do and so do the animals.
I think it necessary to ban tourists‟ taking pictures with animals, making a comfortable environment for them to live and regarding them as our friends, so as to establish harmonious relations with animals.

Pop Music and Folk Music
No one can avoid being influenced by pop music. Even little child imitate pop singers.
Many people feel pop music is lighter and easier to understand than folk music. Even some intellectuals have no interest in folk music.However, a lot of folk music is characterized by soft and sweet melody. Listening to it makes us proud of our country, builds hope for the future and encourages us to work harder for the common good. Most
pop songs, on the other hand, praise love and life styles which are beyond our reach, and they only concentrate on enriching our leisure life.
As a middle school student, I want to know more about traditional music. When I turn on the radio or TV, I am overwhelmed by pop songs. I hardly hear any folk songs. I need a mixture of art, literature and pop music.

Dragon Boat Festival
Duanwu Festival is a traditional Chinese festival held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar.It is also known as the Double Fifth.It has since been celebrated, in various ways, in other parts of East Asia as well. In the West, it‟s commonly known as Dragon Boat Festival.
The exact origins of Duanwu are unclear, but one traditional view holds that the festival memorializes the Chinese poet Qu Yuan (340BC~278BC) of the Warring States Period. He committed suicide by drowning himself in a river because he was disgusted by the corruption(腐败) of the Chu government.The local people, knowing him to be a good man, decided to throw food into the river t o feed the fish so they would not eat Qu‟s body.They also sat on long, narrow paddle boats called dragon boats, and tried to scare the fish away by the thundering sound of drums aboard the boat and the fierce looking carved dragon head on the boat‟s prow(船头).
Today, people eat bamboo—wrapped steamed glutinous rice dumplings called zongzi (the food originally intended to feed the fish) and race dragon boats in memory of Qu‟s dramatic death.

No Breakfast No Good
Now a lot of students go to school in a hurry so that they have no time to have breakfast .But not having breakfast will do harm to their health and their study.
Having no breakfast will throw the normal work of our digestive system into confusion. As a result, it will do harm to our health. And at our age it is high time for us to grow up. So our bodies are in great need of energy. If we don‟t have breakfast, there will be not enough energy to supply. This may stunt(阻碍) our growth.
What‟s more, it is a lon g period between breakfast and lunch. Breakfast provides us with the energy needed for the class. Without breakfast we cannot get along well with our classes. So for the sake of our health and our study, we must have breakfast.

The passage mainly tells us that parents give money to their children so that they can show up or get good grades recently by the way of taking the example of Ethan and his mother.
Ethan‟s mother failed to stop Ethan watching TV by rewarding him with cash. This kind of action is common, and even become a trend, which is concerned by many adults.
Form where I stand, I am not in favor of encouraging kids with cash just because they have got good marks.
My parents used to encourage me like this. Whenever I made progress in my studies, they bought me my favorite books, which not only made me motivated to learn, but also helped me get along well with my studies.
To get kids motivated to learn, I think we should not treat every child in the same way. To some students, oral praise is esse ntial. Don‟t save the praise for only the top score. If possible, involve other adults in praising them. However, this method may not work well with other kids. Maybe what is more important to them is to watch a movie or go on a trip together with their parents.It just depends.

There is almost no oxygen on Mars.It might be about 50 degrees above zero at noon and 100 degrees below zero at night, which prevents us from living there.Now that Mars are quite different from our earth, if we are to go to Mars one day, we should have to take along our own oxygen, food and clothing.But it is certain that with the development of science man will land on Mars in time.

My hometown Jiangcheng, standing on the bank of the Changjiang River, is a beautiful place for people to live in.As its economy has been developing rapidly in the past ten years, not only have new factories, houses and roads been built, but more schools and hospitals are also available for its people.However, there are still some problems, such as water and air pollution and heavy traffic in rush hours.In my opinion, Jiangcheng should develop its economy scientifically.For the sake of our having a better hometown in future, I would also think that the growth of its population should be brought under control.

Every time I read “…if I had the power of sight for three days”, I cannot help being moved by its author Helen Keller, an ordinary but great American woman.
I admire Helen because she is optimistic about life. She became deaf and blind when she was 19 months old. Since then she lived in a world of darkness and silence, and communication seemed only a dream for her. But she never gave up and struggled to lead an active life. Under the guidance of her teacher, Ms Sulliven, Helen learned to read and write and became a famous writer. For a disabled person like her, this was really a wonder.
Helen has set an excellent example to all of us. Her story tells us that we should value what we have, and try our best to overcome any difficulty in life.

The Importance of Agriculture
Agriculture is the foundation of the national economy. It is known that man has to eat before he can do anything.Without grain production, the developing of industry and the advance in science and technology would not be guaranteed.If food shortage occurs, a country will be faced with famine and social panic, to say nothing of its effect on the economy.
Special emphasis, therefore, is laid on agriculture in the developing countries.
In these countries, priority is given to production of farm machines and fertilizer. Great efforts are made to teach farmers the methods of scientific farming.These wise policies are beginning to bring about an increase in grain output.
However, many developing countries are still confronted with agricultural problems, such as the overworked soil, low productivity, lack of labor force, and so on.Therefore, positive steps should be taken as soon as possible to solve these problems.

The CCTV Spring Festival Gala has lost its attraction to some extent.However,
there are still lots of people who are fond of watching it since it provides a chance for family gathering, making people less homesick.
The CCTV Spring Festival Gala, also known as Chunwan, has been one of the most watched and favorable programs in mainland China.Almost all the people around me have the experience of watching Chunwan with their family members.
There is no denying that Chunwan has brought not only plenty of fun to people but also, served as a platform for many artists, who soon rise to fame after their appearance in Chunwan.
From my point of view, Chunwan is an indispensable activity in the New Year‟s celebration of my family. For one thing , Chunwan is elaborately designed with a number of wonderful performances like the Thousand Hands Buddist, which leave us audience a deep impression. For another , watching Chunwan with relatives is the most enjoyable thing in the New Year‟s Eve and nothing ca n be compared with such great fun.

Last week our class had a heated discussion about which poems are more popular between ancient poems and modern poems.
About 42% of the students think ancient poems have beautiful rhythm and rhyme and that ancient poems have further meanings, which teach us a lot more. Besides, ancient poems are precious cultural heritage left by our ancestors so we should pass them on from generation to generation.
However, the other 58% of the students hold the view that modern poems are easier to understand and can express our different feelings and ideas easily. What‟s more, modern poems don‟t have to follow special patterns of rhythm and rhyme so we are free to express ourselves.
In my opinion, both ancient poems and modern poems are our national cultures and we should learn from them.

As we all know smoking does great harm to human beings.More and more people have come to realize how serious this problem is.But they are never bored with it. Some people think it is a kind of fashion, some think it is of great fun and others think that smoking can refresh them.
However, smoking does cause many illnesses.A lot of people always cough because of smoking.The most serious illness caused by smoking is lung cancer. Meanwhile smoking is a waste of money.Besides, careless smokers may cause dangerous fires.
It‟s high time for smokers to give up smoking.

Say “ No” to P lastic Bags
Since June 1st, 2008, plastic bags are no longer provided for free in the supermarkets. Different people have different opinions on this matter.
As far as I am concerned, the government is taking steps to protect our living environment. It‟s true that plastic bags make people‟s shopping more convenient. However, most people just throw them away after using them, and don‟t know how to deal with them. What‟s more, it will take a long time for plastic bags to break down. As a result, they can c ause serious pollution and do great harm to our surroundings, then to people‟s health.
Personally speaking, I fully agree with this policy.After all, it is good for our environment.And we could use bags made of paper or cloth instead of plastic bags when shopping.

According to the passage, extreme temperatures happen much more frequently than ever before in European countries.These are largely due to the heat produced in cities and the circulation of the atmosphere.
Reasons for extreme temperatures are varied.For one thing, human‟s activities like burning fossil fuels produce carbon dioxide, which makes the globe warmer, causing the global temperature to go up.For another, people‟s cutting down trees that can absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide for furniture also contributes to the warmth of the earth, which gives rise to extreme temperatures.
Extreme temperatures can do a lot of harm to people‟s health.The heatwave or the
high temperatures can cause stress, worsening of diseases and even death, especially among children and old people. Therefore, to cope with the extreme temperatures, the most effective way is a global effort to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Individuals should use less energy, plant more trees and recycle materials because everyone‟s contribution counts.

Don‟t hesitate to say “No”
It is very difficult to say “No” to a request, especially to a request from a close friend. However , on some occasions, you have to say “No”. For example , suppose one friend of yours asks you to take exams for him, and he promises to offer you some material benefits.To such request, definitely, you should say “No”.
In real life, there are many people who do not say “No” when they should do so. There are several reasons for this practice .One important one is that they fear they would lose the friend.
When we should say “No”, don‟t hesitate to say so. Otherwise you do harm to both you and the one who made the request.For example, if someone bribes you and you don‟t say “No” to it, b oth of you may end up in prison.
So do not hesitate to say “No”, when you need to do so.

Blogging has become increasingly popular among middle school students. Some
view it as a great way to share ideas and motivate students, while others fear it will interfere with students‟study.
There are arguments both for and against student-blogging.On the negative side, if students blog too frequently it may interfere with their study.And if they are completely unsupervised, some inappropriate topics may be discussed. On the other hand, blogging allows students the chance to write about the things that are most important to them.Because they are interested in those topics, they will be more motivated to write, thus practicing their skills.It will also give the blog-readers the chance to practice their reading skills, too.Furthermore, blog-based discussions will help to develop students‟ability to think independently and communicate with others. For these reasons, I am generally a big supporter of student-blogging.
Of course, there have to be some limits such as parents monitoring their children to make sure they don‟t spend too much time on it and the subjects discussed are suitable.

Beihai Aquatic Products Museum(北海水产品展示馆) is located in the Seashore Park of Beihai City.Opened to the public in 1978, it is regarded as the largest aquatic products museum in China.Besides the sea animals and plants in South China Sea which are common in any kind of aquatic products museum, this museum also gives visitors an opportunity to see some special ones.A Dugong(美人鱼), which is quite rare on earth now, about 2 meters long, is now on display in the Sea Animal Hall.Some sea animals, such as the Chinese White Dolphin, which are protected by the Chinese government, are also on exhibition.

Is the Spirit of Lei Feng out of style?
There are some voices claiming lei Feng‟s spirit has gone out of style in today‟s society.They reason that in commodity economy people should seek more practical things, such as fame, money and the comfortable life.To them nothing is more important than those things, which are often regarded as views of present generation.
There are some other voices claiming that the spirit of lei Feng still has an enormous echo in millions of Chinese people.The great soldier‟s story has such a strong influence on people‟s ideas, values and ways of life that in every field of society there arise countless “Living Lei Fengs”, who follow the example of Lei Feng and serve the people heart and soul.
In my opinion, the spirit of Lei Feng will never be out of date.Instead, it has been brought forward.Today more and more “Lei Fengs” are coming forth from various circles, among whom “Xu Hu” has already set a good example to the whole nation.The spirit of Lei Feng—an unselfish spirit will always encourage us to go forward.

With the improved living standard and China‟s being more open to the world, more and more young people choose to pursue their higher education in English speaking countries such as America, Britain or Australia.Frankly speaking, studying overseas has both advantages and disadvantages.
The main benefit of studying abroad is the academic one. Obviously in western colleges and universities, the laboratories are more sophisticated, and book resources more up-to-date. More importantly, they have first rate professors who are aware of the latest developments in their respective field.Hence, the standard of teaching is much higher. Besides , traveling abroad can broaden their mind and offer them greater opportunities to develop their independence.
Despite these obvious advantages, we should not overlook negative effects.One problem is the difficulty they have to adjust to a new culture.They may experience loneliness and homesickness, which will of course do harm to their study. Another is . the financial problem.It is not easy for ordinary students to cover high college cost.
While overseas study has its drawbacks, the advantages are obvious. Personally, I think it a good idea to study overseas , learning something different from our own country.

Although the United States and Canada have diversity, American culture and Canadian culture aren t too different and aren t too similar.The United States is referred to as “the great melting pot of society” where people of all nations join together to form “a more perfect nation”. While Canada on the other hand has been compared to a mosaic(马赛克), where people are invited to join the nation and still retain their cultural identities, complete with traditions, languages and customs.
When it comes to language in the United States and Canada they both have English as one of the main languages.Since a lot of people speak French and 20% of the population of Canada are French Canadian, on most things not only English is written but also is French, while in United States since they encourage people to be more into the “American culture” there will be less of different types of cultures but more of one.

With the College Entrance Exam coming, from time to time we hear students discuss whether Senior 3 students should take a lot of tonics (补品) to keep fit.There are different opinions about it.Some students object to taking tonics, because tonics will make them put on more weight, which is not appropriate for their health.
Moreover, the parents will have a great impact on the Senior 3 students if they show too much concern by offering them tonics, which is bound to bring more stress to the Senior 3 students.They will feel cast down and ashamed when they can‟t get a high mark as their parents have expected.Besides, they don‟t think their effort will pay off only if they take
tonics.However, some students-opinion completely differs from it.They are in favor of the opinion that it is easy for the Senior 3 students to feel tired by working hard, and tonics can help to bring themselves back to energy as soon as possible, so it is good to take some tonics.

Leonardo da vinci, whose family was poor, was born in 1452.Besides painting, he also became interested in machines when he was a boy.By studying and drawing them, Leonardo gained knowledge about their design and structure.Different from others, his drawing skills enables him to produce clear drawings of his mechanical ideas easily.Even more than 150 years later, many of his designs can still be used to create perfect working machines.While making inventions Leonardo was also painting.Today we think of him as one of the greatest painters, but if he had never been a painter, we would still appreciate him as one of the greatest inventors of his time.

Review of Emma by Jane Austin
This book tells the story of a rich, young lady two hundred years ago who enjoys planning the marriages of all her friends.However, it turns out that her plans are not successful.It is a very amusing book which anyone will enjoy.
The part I enjoyed best was when Emma goes home with a young man who she thinks is in love with her friend.Only then does she discover that the man wants to marry her because she is rich.He proposes marriage and she is very shocked and rude to him.
The humor lies in the fact that Emma thinks she understands everybody around
her.In fact everyone else is more aware of the true state of affairs than her.
I enjoyed this book because it showed me that people can make themselves believe that what they want to happen will happen.

Davidson Black was a Canadian doctor who helped develop the techniques that led to the discovery of the bones in the Zhoukoudian Caves, near Beijing.He was a specialist in the study of bones and found it challenging to search for and identify bones of early people.As the university in which he worked was aware of the significance of his work, they gave him ample free time to do the research.And at last, it was his assistant, Pei Wenzhong, who made the discovery of these primitive bones and sharpened stone tools.Dr.Davidson thought highly of Pei Wenzhong because of his talent and hard work.

Ladies and gentlemen, Good morning.I‟m Li Hua from Fujian, China.It‟s my great honor to be here to say something about the global water shortage and ways of dealing with it. As we know, the global water shortage is becoming increasingly severe mainly due to global warming, environmental pollution and the ever-increasing population. Therefore, it‟s high time we did something about it.
Firstly, an effective way, I think, is to reserve water in a scientific way for future use.Secondly, new methods need to be developed to use the existing water resources, for example, turning sea water into fresh water.Thirdly, we must stop water pollution by law.Last but not least, it‟s everyone‟s responsibility to make good use of water, such as recycling and saving water in our daily life.
In conclusion, people around the world should be aware of the real situation of water shortage, protect the present water resources and explore potential ones scientifically.
That‟s all. Thank you.

Australia and New Zealand
Australia and New Zealand, well-known as the two main countries in Oceania, somewhat resemble each other but differ in some aspects meanwhile.
As for similarities, firstly, they are both located in the South Pacific Ocean, with very short distance between them. Besides, they both regard English as the official language, though they both own a diverse culture and various languages. In addition, both of them gain international fame for their large sheep population and prosperous wool industry. Distinctions are clear to see. Australia is composed of the Mainland and Tasmania, while New Zealand consists of the South Island and the North Island. Moreover, New Zealand has a smaller population of about 4,500,000, only one-fifth of that of Australia, a total of about 20,000,000. Furthermore, Australia resembles the USA in size.On the contrary, New Zealand covers an area smaller than Japan.

Lotus(荷花) lives in water.It can be divided into two parts.One part is made up of flowers and leaves, and the other refers to its roots.You can only see the flowers and leaves above the surface of water.The flowers are big and beautiful with light sweet smell giving out.The leaves look like big green plates covering the surface of the water
and supporting the flowers.The roots, growing deep into the mud of the pond, can be made into several kinds of foods.
Lotus is very popular with people because of its beauty and special spirit.A lot of famous poets, both ancient and modern, have written plenty of poems to praise lotus spirit of growing in the dirty mud but giving beauty to the world.And artists also draw pictures for it.

Nowadays, more and more advertisements appear on newspapers, broadcasts, magazines as well as streets. People have different views on advertisements.
Some people think advertisements can help people to have a wide choice of goods and they help consumers know the goods and businessmen better.The consumers can gain not only knowledge of goods but also artistic enjoyment.
Contrary to those people, many others think advertisements are very unpleasant.Consumers are often cheated by the false advertisement on which consumers always waste a great deal of time.What is more, consumers felt annoyed to be interrupted when they are watching TV plays.So advertisements should be limited.
But whether you like it or not, advertisements have become a part of our life.
