Up to now I have read a lot of books， for example，magazines，novels and storybooks and so on.But one of the books that I like best is My Life Story.
It was created(创作)by an American writer—Helen Keller(海伦·勒)in 1902.She was a blind(盲的)，deaf(聋的)and dumb(哑的)person.In the book，she wrote that she had not been able to see，hear or speak since the age of one year and seven months.This unusual thing made her very sad.When she was seven years old，she knew Miss Sullivan(利文)，her good teacher.Helen was getting happier every day.Then，Miss Sullivan helped her learn how to write English words.At first，Miss Sullivan wrote some words on Helen's hands with her own fingers again and again.Helen was a very diligent girl.Because of this，she tried as much as possible to remember words.After that，she wrote and published(版)many famous works.My Life Story is one of them .My Life Story described her hard struggle to become an outstanding(
It shows us a universal(普遍的)truth：“Nothing is difficult if you put your heart intoit!”This is why I like it best.What about you?
How should we read? Should we read selectively or extensively? Everyone has his own view.
Some people think we should read selectively. They argue that with the development of modern science and technology, more and more books are published every day. It is impossible for us to read all the books. What’s more, there are many bad books that are poisonous to our mind, and we shouldn’t read them. Since we can’t read all the books, and we shouldn’t read bad books, we must read selectively.But others many not agree. They emphasize that today’s society is not what it used to be. If you want to be successful, you must read widely and learn knowledge in both natural sciences and humanities. If a man knows much in one field but knows nothing in others, he may be useless. Since we must have many kinds of knowledge, we must read extensively.
Who’s right? There is a lot to be said for both sides of the argument. However, I think we should read extensively first and then learn deeply about the subject we are interested in.
What is the most important thing in the world? I think it is health.
You can take away our money, house, car, or even our clothes and we can survive. But if our health was taken away, we would surely die. That is why we always try to eat in a healthy way and exercise regularly.In order to eat healthily, I usually avoid eating food high in fat, like French fries or cookies. I also eat little meat. I eat a lot of vegetables and fresh fruit which are full of vitamins.Taking exercise every day helps us build a strong body. Regular exercise is an important part of keeping me healthy.
What's more, I think friends are an important part of one's health. Many studies show that people with a wide range of social contacts get sick less than those who don't. I always feel better when I am with friends than when I am alone. When I am with my friends, I always laugh. Laughing is also an important part of health. I like to laugh with my friends.
By eating properly and exercising regularly, I can keep my body at a proper weight and keep healthy. By spending time with my friends, I can keep my mind as well as my body happy. these things sound easy to do, but not many people can manage them. I think a strong will is necessary if we want to keep healthy.

On Excessive Packaging
Nowadays, more and more On Excessive Packaging appear in our life. In other word, it exists in our life everywhere. For instance, food, books, clothes, and gifts, and so on. There are two reasons for it.
On the one hand, With the development of the times, the packaging is need sometimes. And the skills of it has developed. So many people start to use the packaging and at the same time the excessive packaging appeared. On the other hand, Manufacturers in order to earn more money, so, they provide in such the excessive packaging and lead to the waste of resource.
However, as far as I am concerned, the result is far less than satisfactory and quite often goes to the opposite.Therefore, I suggest that we should make some rules about it, which may decrease the excessive packaging.

The Impact of the Internet on Learning
As a well-known proverb goes,Internet is playing an increasingly important role in society today.In our life,more and more people rely on the internet to obtain information and knowledge. Because it is quick and convenient.so many people give up traditional learning methods.
However,We should understand that education doesn't simply mean learning to obtain information.First of all,education's goal is to help the students develop,to improve their ability and skills.Rather than obtain information simply.what'smore,One of the important task of education is to enable students to learn self judgment.
All in all,The impact of the Internet on learning is great, but we should always know that education is not a simple access to information from the Internet
In most China Universities, the graduates are demanded to write a thesis of a certain length to get the degree. However, this long tradition has been challenged by people, saying that the universities students can not write a thesis independently. They just copy from others. This is a waste of time. So far as I am concerned, the graduates may still need to the thesis to finish their university studies.
First and foremost, writing the thesis is a very good practice for students. It's a good way for students to systemically summarize the knowledge of the four-year studies. Take the English major as an example, writing thesis can broaden the reading scope as well as improve writing skills. What's more, the task is a perfect show of the students' knowledge and progress over the four-year studies. By the thesis, teachers can judge whether a student has reached the level required for graduation. Finally, the writing of the thesis may contribute to the further development of academy. The questions discussed and tackled in the thesis may be helpful for the advance of a certain area.
From the reasons discussed above, it it quite necessary for graduates to write a graduating thesis, which is beneficial to students as well as academy.
After a seemingly endless 12-year journey, students finally reach their cherished destination and settle down as freshmen. After the struggles of middle and high school, college is a haven for freshers: A warm bed, new friends and, most important of all, freedom. Only one thing is missing: A romantic partner who can bring vitality and flavor to the college experience.
But this flavor can often be soured by that well-worn poisoner of relationships everywhere: Money. And money issues can damage such a fragile butterfly as campus love.
Male students, as a result of both societal conditioning and a sense of chivalry, often take it for granted that paying the bill is symbolic of both their value in a relationship and the embodiment of politeness. “I never let a girl pay
the bill, or I feel embarrassed,” said Wei Xu, an 18-year-old freshman at
Sichuan Agricultural University.”
According to an online survey on Sohu.com that quizzed 6,000 students,
8.8 percent of them (mostly male) get an extra “relationship budget” from
parents. Every month, Wei’s father gives him another several hundred yuan so that he can sustain the status of generous boyfriend.
Whereas, according to female students, having a boyfriend that acts like an ATM machine is not always welcome. “Spending parents’ money is not
something to be proud of,” said Pan Tongtong, 18, a freshman at Beijing Normal University. “I would view such a boy as an irresponsible type. Liu Na, 18, a freshman at Shenzhen University, echoed those sentiments by saying that she prefers going Dutch as a way to show each other respect. “The nature of
a relationship is sharing not taking,” said Liu. “Plus, I don’t want to feel as
though I am relying on my boyfriend financially.”
However, male students find it hard to accept the dawning reality of financial co-existence. Wei Xu believes that it would hurt his pride to ask a girl to share the cost. “I
just don’t know how to open my mouth to raise the subject,” Wei said. Girls, however,
prefer setting ground rules regarding such matters so as to rule out any possible misunderstandings. “It’s better to get things straight before dating, so that neither part feels undue pressure on the matter of money, which could be a sensitive subject in a relationship,” said Qin Xiaolan, a 19-year-old freshman at Wuhan University. Some, however, balance things differently. Ma Shunyang, 20, a sophomore student at Guangdong Foreign Studies University, always gives some money to her boyfriend before going out for a dinner or a movie. “It is understandable for my boyfriend to be the one in charge in front of others,” said Ma. Ma also thinks that having expensive dinners or going to expensive movies doesn't guarantee a happy relationship. “The key is how much thought is put into
the relationship, not how much money,” said Ma.
On TV programs, we can see many foreigners can speak Chinese fluently
and sing songs well. Or, walking on the street, we may see a foreigner talking with friends in fluent Chinese. And a lot of Confucius Institutes has been built arond the globe. Indeed, Chinese is more popular around the world than before, and the population speaking Chinese is on the rise. Some people argue that this phenomenon is good for the development of the language and the communication between countries, while others doubt it. As for me, I prefer to the former.
With the Chinese-speaking population becoming larger and larger, Chinese is endowed with greater vitality, which is of great importance to the survival and development of a language. With constant change of time, more new words and phrase from other languages are added to Chinese, which greatly enriches Chinese. What's more, the wide use of Chinese can introduce real Chinese culture to the world so that people from other nations can gain a better and further understanding of China. Since language and culture are closely related, it's impossible to learn a language without learning its culture. Once knowing a nation's culture, the understanding of that nation would be deeper and the barriers would be eliminated gradually.
From the discussions above, with the progressing of globalization, Chinese has been widely recognized and learned. It's a good way to broadcast our nation's culture. However, in view of this situation, we can not be to optimistic, because with the deepening of communication, something bad can be brought to our language, too. Therefore, we should be cautious to this phenomenon
With the upcoming of the London Olympic Games, the anti-doping is being hotly discussed again. It's said that the analeptic inspection of London Olympic Games is the most stringent ever. Some athletes resort to stimulants to boost their competition results, because a good competition result means a lot to an athlete, glory, repuation and money. But almost all people think that the stimulants should be banned in any kind of sports games. I strongly support it.First of all, using the stimulants will destroy the athlete both in physical and in mental. Taking stimulants can release the energy within a short period of time, using up athletes' energy and making them totally excited, even crazy. After
the games, they have to rest for several days to recover. Furthermore, the athletes may become addicted to the stimulants. It's kind of drugs that hardly to get rid of.
Secondly, taking stimulants violates the spirit of the Olympic Games. If every athletes take stimulants to get better competition results, there's no point in holding any kind of sports games, because it would be the competition of stimulants rather than the competitive level of athletes.
In short, the athletes should stay away from stimulants and rely on their hardwork to win the gold medal in the sports games.
I started to learn English in Grade five in primary school, which seemed a little early in that time. But now, the situation is completely different. As the deepening of globalization, people pay increasingly attention to foreign language learning. But many parents do not know when is the best time to study a foreign language. Recently, many educational organizations say publicize that children should study a foreign language in a early age. However, from my point of view, it's good for children to study a foreign language, but it should not be too early.
Firstly, children should first study well our mother language. It's not so easy for them to learn Chinese,because Chinese have both Chinese Characters and pinyin. Pinyin have the same letters with English, which would make children confused and make the study more difficult. Secondly, children should have more time to play rahter than study. If they study a foreign language in an early age, they would be bored and inimical which may do harm to their learning and growth.
From the discussions above, it's not so good for children to study a foreign languge too early. Language learning is important but not everyone has the gift to study a foreign language well. Therefore, when to start to study a foreign languge depends on children's interest.

Should cars be allowed into College Campus?
With the rapid development of our national economy, private cars have become in large number; of course, quite a few cars are heavily driven into College Campus.
In a significant way, these cars do not take up students’ places for study, but
actually affect their daily life and study-- for instance, this crowd of cars may make noise and emit filthy gas to choke us to death. And the campus is jammed with lines of cars and seems to be parking lot instead of an academic institute. So cars have been strictly prohibited into many College Campuses. It seems that this is not convenience to some persons, indeed, but this is for the sake of our safety. Thus when someone enjoys convenience from modern tools, don't forget that it is dangerous to the students in the College Campus. Therefore, I agree that cars are not allowed into College Campus.adreep.cn
By and large, with the price of cars falling significantly, cars will enter average families, and most Chinese will enjoy a luxurious lifestyle in their life. However, they are still prohibited to drive their cars into College Campus, which , I think, is a hard truth in the eyes of most people.
习惯的奴隶Creatures of Habit
Think a minute! You've probably heard the expression “A leopard can’t change its
spot.” Which, of course, is true of leopards. But is it true of people? Can people change? Are we human just creatures of habit? Do we not have any control over our actions and
One guy said, “Bad habits are like a comfortable bed: they’re easy to get into, but
hard to get out of.” Someone else said, “The chains of habits takes effort, yet one of the
greatest freedoms in life is the freedom from bad habits.
Habits are like the roads we take through life everyday. The problem is not every road takes us where we need to go. Our routes through life become our ruts in life, which we end up stuck in and find it hard to dig ourselves out. That’s why we must change our bad
habits as soon as possible before they become our “second nature”, because our habits
become our character and our character becomes our life. As one wise person said, “First
we make our habits, then our habits make us.”
But we humans don’t like to change, do we? So we come up with excuses, like: “I
can’t be different, that’s just the way I am.” Or “I was born this way.” And the good old
saying: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” But that’s just it: we’re not dogs or
animals. In fact, we’re the only creatures who have the freedom and power to change and choose the kind of person we want to become. So what habits do you need to start changing today?
In order to be more competitive in their future career, many college students choose to work on a minor besides a major. This is quite demanding in that they have to work much harder than those who choose to concentrate on their major only. However, I think it’s quite rewarding to have a minor on the side.
A minor is an alternative field of study that is a compliment, or perhaps entirely different from your main field of study. Students use minors to fulfil either a personal interest or to supplement whatever it is that they are taking as their major. It typically involves a smaller number of units than the major.
Having a minor may be personally important to a student if his/her minor in a subject that he/she passionates about; he/she may, for example, want to go to medical school (hence the major in biology) but also loves the violin (hence the minor in music). they may also be personally interested in gaining skills and training in a certain field but not interested in pursuing the topic to the extent that a major would require.
Professionally speaking, minors can be a great help. One may need additional training for a career path that a minor can provide (in something like accounting). One may also want to improve the resume by taking courses and receiving training in a field he/she knows employers are always interested in.
Considering to the severe employment situation in the present job market, walking with two legs is always better. For example, if a student’s major is English, then he/she
can choose the accounting or finance as the minor to enrich knowledge. After graduate, he/she can have more choices to choose a career or can combine the two subjects to get more opportunities.
To sum up, a minor for college students is rewarding as far as the factor of future employment and self-improvement are concerned.
空巢老人Life of Empty-nesters
With the deepening of the aging of society, there are a growing number of empty-nesters, which has become a social problem can not be ignored. When the children leave home due to reasons such as work, study, marriage, leaving their middle-aged parents at home, empty-nesters will produce the symptoms of mental disorders, known as the family “empty-nest”syndrome.
Some empty-nesters can live a good life after retire, especially those in city. Most of them live in the same city with their children so that they can visit each other often. Besides, they can participate in various group activities. For example, some middle-aged people attend to universities for the elderly for further study, while others join the choir or some other public service activities. By these activities, empty-nesters can eliminate of loneliness and realize their own values.
While in rural area, situations get worse. Most young people work in city, leaving their elderly parents at home to take care of themselves. In rural area, there are much less activities for elderly so that they are busy with the farm work all the day. And some elderly look after their grand-children, which is the main task for elderly in the country.
From the discription above, we can know that some elderly people can live a good life although they’re empty-nesters. However, it’s our responsibility to care for our parents
and our care is what they really need in life. So, no matter how busy you are, remember to care about them, talk to them frequently
卧谈会 My View on Bedtime Chat in College Dorms
Many college students stay up very late at night chatting in bed. They chat on various subjects, such as study, love, society and future. Sometimes their chat goes on and on and seems to lead nowhere. Views on this common phenomenon in college life vary from person to person. To my way of thinking, bedtime chat is beneficial for students.
First of all, bedtime chat is good for freshmen at college. Students from all over the country are naturally curious about each other. Bedtime chat seems to be a good answer to their curiosity. Through a good bedtime chat, students in the same dorm would soon earn about each other's likes and dislikes, which can result in a better understanding among roommates. Secondly, it is inevitable to chat on study in bed. Bedtime chat helps with academic development in that it makes up for what each has missed in their daytime lessons. Thirdly, bedtime chat helps broaden students' horizon. This is especially true when the roommates are of a diverse set in terms of culture and geography. Different customs reflecting a different culture and different scenery representing their respective geographical conditions are referred to and shared in their chat, which is not only enjoyable but also beneficial. However, one can never neglect the fact that a bedtime chat carried on for too long will eat much into their time for sleep and affect study the following day.
In a word, I firmly believe that bedtime chat in dorms at college has much more advantages than disadvantages only if it doesn't go on for too long.

Celebrities as the products’ spokesmen?You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below in Chinese:
Celebrities as the products’ spokesmen
In the contemporary society, it is very common for celebrities, or the so-called superstars, to be spokesmen or representatives for a wide variety of products. Celebrities’
advertisements can be easily found on the Internet, televisions, newspapers, magazines and even on the walls of some buildings.
There are, however, some problems for celebrities and the consumers. To begin with, before representing, a star may know nothing about the product. Thus, consumers may be misled. Even worse, for the sake of money, some stars advertise for items with low quality, even for fake commodities. In the case of Sanlu, the public image of stars involved was spoiled. Last but not least, the high income of advertising does not deserve their labor, which widens the gap between the poor and the rich.
From my point of view, it is high time that measures were taken to eliminate the demerits. Firstly, laws should be worked out to regulate celebrities’ advertising. Secondly,
stars should be required to tell the truth to the public. Only by doing so can stars be trusted by their fans and can consumers benefit.
