I’m a Senior Three student and I’m in trouble. I used to like English, but now I am having some problems in
English, especially in English writing. Though I know English is a very important subject. I think now it has become
a little difficult for me. My poor writing skills have caused me to get low marks on my English exams. This has
made me dislike English and I am afraid to take any more exams. I really want to change my situation and enjoy
learning English again. I wonder why so many students like English and can get good results in English exams. I do
want to be one of the best students and go to a famous university after graduation. This is my dreaming, but my
English is not good enough. What should I do?
Secrets to Write a Beautiful Article
I have received your letter and I’m glad to give you some suggestions. First of all, don’t be disappointed. Many
students find it difficult to write well. In my opinion, if you want to improve your writing, you should do the
following things. First, do some studying with the set phrases and sentence structures. Keep a list of them and then
try to make some sentences with them. Second, read English as much as possible. There are many things that can’t
be learnt immediately. You must see them in books many times. Then you’ll be able to use them correctly yourself.
So, in order to write well, you must learn to read a lot. Finally, you’d better recite some good passages. The more
passages you read, the better you will write.
I’m sure you can improve your written English as long as you study hard. Remember, practice makes perfect.

能会受伤。 Whether Students should Take Physical Exercise
I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we’ve had about whether students of Senior 3 should take physical
exercise. 55% of the students think they should take exercise every day, such as doing morning exercises, playing
ping-pong and basketball, but it shouldn’t take up too much time. Proper exercise can build up one’s body and
reduce diseases. What’s more, sports let their brains have a rest so that they can study effectively.
On the other hand, 45% believe taking exercise is a waste of time and it is tiring. After having sports, they are
much too excited for a long time to pay attention to their lessons. It’s also possible get hurt in sports.
 Now in the rural areas, there are many children out of school. I think one of the reasons is that
their families are too poor to afford their schooling. As a result, they have to stay at home to earn
money to support their families. Another reason is that many parents think it’s useless for the girls
to study and they would not like them to go to school. The third reason is that some children are not
interested in their lessons, and would not like to go to school.
 In my opinion, all children including girls should have the chance to receive an education.
People should pay more attention to the education of children because they will play a very
important part in the future of our country.
Mobile Phones at School
I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we’ve had about whether it is necessary for middle
school students to carry mobile phones to school.
The majority of the students think that it is more convenient for them to keep in touch with their
parents and classmates if they have a mobile phone. And what’s more, it’s the latest fashion.
However, most teachers think middle school students are not old enough to control themselves.
It is a waste of time for students to play games and send messages to each other by mobile phone.
And it’s easy to cause the students to vie with each other. If necessary, they can make phone calls by
using public phones on the campus.
In my opinion, following the fashion is understandable. But as middle school students, we
should put all our heart into our studies.
English Is My Favorite Subject
English is my favorite subject, because it’s such a widely used language. It is important for everyone to learn English well in our rapidly developing world.
English has now become an international language because it is used by almost every country in the world. If you want to do business with foreigners, you have to learn English, because most of them speak and write in English. English is one of the working languages at international conferences. Today, many great reports, papers, and books are written in English, so if you want to read them, you must know English well. If you know English, you can also understand people from other countries better and contribute more effectively to world peace.
No matter what you do in the future, English will always be important. So we should pay more attention to learning English in order to make our country powerful, competitive, and international.
6.随着航天技术的发展，人们就“普通人去太空旅游”的话题展开了热烈讨论。请你根据下列提示以 “The advantages and
The Advantages and disadvantages of Space Travel
There are several advantages of space travel. First of all, it could provide man with new places to live in and new sources of energy. In addition, space travel helps people understand the universe better. Also space travel research does good to other research fields.
However, space travel also has some disadvantages. It uses up too much money which could be spent in other ways. What’s more, the idea of man living on other planets is uealistic. Space travel could be dangerous, too.
In a word, though there are the disadvantages, I think space travel is a good thing. It is important for man to explore and learn about the universe.
Recently we have had a heated discussion on whether people should keep pets at home in cities.
Some students think it's a good idea to keep pets because many old people who live alone at home can get some comforts from pets. Besides, getting along well with animals will make our life interesting. On the contrary the other students are against the idea. In their opinion if too many people keep pets at home, it's bad for the environment. What is worse, pets may make too much noise and even attack people.
I like animals, so I don't think it's bad to keep pets at home. But we must take some measures to prevent them from polluting our environment.
3. 可适当增加细节，以使行文连贯 4. 开头及结尾已给出
However, it’s not uncommon to meet some foreigners even in middle schools now. There’s no doubt that schools will be better known. What’s more, it’s good for students to develop interest in English study as well as learn more about foreign cultures. Meanwhile, their oral English will be improved a lot. On the other hand, some foreigners, though well paid, find it difficult to get used to the way of life in a foreign country and they sometimes worry about their safety. The most important thing is that they are not quite familiar with the students. As a result, many students can’t benefit from them.
3．参考词汇：陪读 accompany sb. studying at school督促 urge
I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we have recently had about whether our parents should accompany us studying at school.
We do have different opinions on this matter. Most of us (about 70%) think our parents should not accompany us studying at school since it makes us fall into the habit of dependence, so that we won’t form the good habit of studying. What’s more, it is harmful for us to form the habit of controlling ourselves. At the same time it affects our parents’ work, studies and rest.
While about 30% of my classmates think it necessary for our parents to accompany us studying at school. Accompanying us studying at school can let us have more time to spare for our studies. Besides, we shall be healthier for their cooking. On the other hand our parents can help us set up our aim, urge us to finish our task, encourage us to overcome difficulties and get us into the good habit of studying.
the pros；反方 the cons
A Heated Debate
We’ve had a debate about whether middle school students should do social practice. The pros （正面）think middle school students should do social practice. They believe social practice can help them know more about the things around them and give them much experience. By doing so, the students’ ability can be developed. Besides, they can put what they have learned in the books into practice.
On the other hand, the cons（反面，反对的） think middle school students don’t have to do social practice, because they are too young to fit the world. They say it’s a waste of time and energy. What’s more, there are no such chances. The whole debate is heated.
I’m writing to tell you about the discussion about whether it is good or not for families to own private cars. With the improvement of people’s living conditions, more and more people have their own cars. Some of us think it good to own a car. For one thing, the car is a kind of convenient, fast and pleasant transportation. For another thing, it shows that people’s living conditions are improving and our country is getting richer and stronger. Meanwhile, it makes other businesses and industries develop faster. However, others hold different views. They think waste gases from the cars pollute our environment badly. Besides, too many cars will have some had effects on the traffic and lead to more accidents. Also, parking is another big problem. In my opinion, we shouldn’t encourage people to own private cars.
参考词汇： 报答: repay学费: tuition 经济独立: financially independent
I’m writing to tell you about a recent discussion our class have had on whether or not university students should be financially independent.
60% of the students think that university students don’t have to be financially independent, because trying to make money will affect their studies. They also think that they can repay their parents in the future.
25% of my classmates hold the view that doing part-time jobs will help one gain work experience and learn more of society. Besides, when students find it hard to make money, they won’t waste their money any longer.
15% of the students, including myself, partly agree with the opinions above. Personally I think that as grownups, we should not depend on our parents any more. However, if our parents can afford to pay the tuition for us, we should put our studies in the first place.
Thank you for reading my letter
(1) 题目：Time Is More Valuable Than Money
Time Is More Valuable Than Money
People often say, “Time is money,” But in fact time is more valuable than money. Why? Because when money is spent, we can earn it back. However, when time is lost, it will never return. This is the reason why we must value time.
The time we have is limited. Every second is precious. We should make full use of our time. But there are a lot of people who do not know the importance of time. They kill away their time chatting, smoking, drinking or gambling, They do not realize that wasting time is simply wasting their valuable life.
In a word, we should get into the good habit of saving time. Do not leave what can be done today until tomorrow. Laziness will not only bring us failure but also lead us to the road of poverty.
