This special pen was invented by Liu Jie. It has three colors and is used for taking notes quickly. It is very useful if you have a lot to write down. The pen comes with a microchip that can store a list of common words that you will use. You can program the words you will use often into the microchip’s memory, then assign a short form to each word. When you are writing, you just need to write the short forms will change into the actual words. The microchip can contain up to 50 words and you can make changes to the list of words whenever you need to.
I don’t agree with the rule that I must be home for dinner every day. This is because the rule affects my social life. It takes away important apportunities for me to spend time with my friends. As a result, my life is quite uninteresting sometimes. I think I should be allowed to have dinner with my friends once in a while.
I would like to hang out with my classmates until after dinner on some Fridays. I wish my parents will allow me to do this if I promise not to stay out too late and if there is no important family activity on those days.
Many students talked about the rules that they have in school. At their school, they have to wear uniforms every day. The problem is that all the students think the uniforms are ugly. They think young people should look smart and so they would like to wear their own clothes. Their teacher believe that if they did that, they would think more of their clothes than their study. But the students disagree. They would feel more comfortable and that is good for studying. If they can’t do that , they should be allowed to design their own uniforms. That would be a good way to keep both teachers and students happy.
Whose paper is it?
First, I think if that paper is no name on it, it could be a boy’s. Because boys are always careless. And it can’t belong to Z and Q, because they didn’t take the exam and it can’t be A’s, A is the most careful boy in our class. He does everything carefully. And the paper must belong to a boy who studies well. Because the grade is great. I know. It must be W’s. He’s a careless boy but studies well. He often forgets to do many things but he never forgets eating.
My favorite kind of movie is the historical drama. I like historical dramas because they are a relaxing way for me to learn history and the effects that a historical even had on people’s lives.
My favorite movie is Gone with the Wind. It was make in 1939, based on a prize-winning novel by Margaret Mitchell. The movie’s plot is set against the American Civil War and it has an amazing cast that helps bring the story to life.
When I watch this movie, I feel deeply moved. It makes me feel sad about the effects of war, but it also gives me hope in the strength of the human spirit.
I think you should watch this movie too because it is one of the greatest movies of all time.
You must be excited about coming to China soon. Let me give you some suggestions and advice about Chinese customs. When you’re eating at the table, it’s impolite to start eating first if there are older people at the table. You should let them start first. When you are eating with chopsticks. It is also impolite to stick your chopsticks into the bowl of rice and leave them there.
In our house, you’re supposed to take off your shoes before you enter the house or just inside the front door. In our culture, we don’t usually hug or kiss people.
When you go out with people, you should tell the hostess where you are going, who you are going with and when you will come back. In our culture, the hostess will worry a lot about the safety of her guests, so a polite guest will always let her know these things.
Have a safe trip, and I look forward to meeting you soon.
An experience that made me very happy was winning the nation-wide English speech competition last year.
At first, I didn’t know what to write for my speech, but after talking to my teacher and reading some books, I had some ideas and started writing. Then I practiced my speech many times.
On the day of the competition, I saw many people there. This made me feel very nervous. I started to worry that I would forget my speech. Then I remembered what my teacher told me ---close my eyes and take deep breaths. I did that and it made me feel much better. When my turn came, I gave my speech with confidence.
I waited anxiously for the results, and when I heard that I was the first prize winner, I jumped up and down in joy.
This experience taught me that being well-prepared is very important. I helps to read a lot, and also to ask people around you for advice. Most importantly, have confidence in yourself.
My lucky day
I will always remember the date February 28, 2014. This was the luckiest day of my life.
When I woke up that morning, the sky was very dark. I took the early bus to school as usual. As soon as I arrived at school, it started to rain very heavily. Many students were late and were all wet when they got to school. But I wasn’t because I caught the early bus, I would have been late and wet as well.
Later that day, I realized that I had forgotten my wallet and couldn’t buy lunch. I couldn’t believe it. Then my friend Lisa said that she could share her lunch with me.
Finally, my older brother told me that night that he could take me to the concert that I’d been dying to attend that weekend. I was so happy.
I think that was the best day I’d had in a long time.
What a lucky day.
