Dear Mr. Smith,
I’m Han Yinuo. I’m glad to learn that the first English spoken competition will be held soon. I’d like to work as a volunteer at it. Now let me introduce myself.
I’m a 14-year-old middle school student. I’m 1.68 meters in height. I have big eyes and long straight black hair. I’m outgoing and friendly. I’m good at making friends and ready to help others. Also, I have good communication skills and I am good with people. Above all, my English is good, especially my spoken English. So I believe I can do a good job.
If I become a volunteer, I promise I will try my best to help the competition.
I’m looking forward to your reply.
The person who impressed me a lot
Hello, everyone! There are many people in my life. Some didn’t make much of an impression on me while others impressed me deeply. Now, I want to introduce someone who impressed me a lot.
Three years ago, I went to a new school. No one knew me. I was lonely and afraid to make friends with anyone. Every time I heard my classmates talking and laughing, I felt even lonelier. One day a girl with long hair entered the classroom. She passed me, turned back and greeted me with a smile. Her smile made me feel warm and changed me. After that I learned to trust other people and make friends with others. Of course, the girl became my best friend. I learned many lessons from my outgoing and friendly friend. One of them was that when I smile at the world, it’ll smile back at me.
That’s all. Thank you!
After a busy school day, I usually relax by taking after-school activities. I go to the singing club on Tuesday where I sing folk songs or foreign songs. I also go to the walking club on Thursday and I walk with other members for an hour. I find that I get a lot of pleasure from singing and that I have become healthier than I used to be because of walking. Besides, I feel energetic and I don’t think studies are boring anymore. I have also made a lot of friends in these clubs.
In short, after-school activities make me relaxed and make my life colorful and meaningful.
Our school did a survey to ask if the school should delay the time school starts in the morning. About 92％ of the students in our school agree with the idea. Here are their reasons.
First of all, they think if the time school starts is delayed, they can get enough sleep. That will make them more active in class so that they can study more efficiently. Secondly, delaying school start time in the morning will offer them more time to have breakfast. Breakfast provides energy for the whole morning. No breakfast will do harm to their health and study. What’s more, they won’t have to hurry to school, and they may have time to do some exercise in the morning to keep fit.
All in all, they think that delaying school start time in the morning is good for students. They are looking forward to it.
Hey, Janet! I can understand you. Sometimes I also have such a problem. I think it’s normal in our daily life. Here’s my advice.
First, you should think about why your friend is treating you like this. Maybe you have done something wrong to hurt her. If so, say sorry to her, and then she won’t be angry with you.
Second, you should try to find out if something has happened to her. Maybe she doesn’t feel sure of herself at school. Maybe she has other problems but is keeping them to herself. If so, try your best to encourage her and make her feel you are there to listen to her.
Third, maybe you shouldn’t worry about it. Maybe it has nothing to do with you. Maybe your friend just wants to be alone for a while. If this is true, respect her wishes, feelings and space.
That’s my advice. I hope it will help you.
In the picture, the parents are using their mobile phones. Their little boy is standing between them trying to get their attention. Maybe he wants to know why the adults are always on their phones, and not spending their time with him.
I think parents should set good examples for their children, so they should shut their phones off or spend less time on them. If so, parents will have more spare time to do lots of things with their children, like playing games, watching movies or playing sports, which can provide good chances to communicate with them. Good communication between parents and children is really necessary. It means children can share their happy things with their parents or talk about their problems so they can get some help from their parents. I think parents should always be there to listen to their children. It can not only help strengthen parent-child relationships but also help children’s development.
