Nowadays, there appears a phenomenon that the western customs are spreading into the east countries step by step, thus making many inhabitants who live in big cities enjoy themselves on these western festivals such as Christmas Day, April Fool’s Day, etc. Such phenomenon shows us that the world people are getting close gradually and the world is becoming smaller and smaller as well. Therefore, in my opinion, it’s a normal phenomenon s well as a necessary trend.
First of all, it shows that we Chinese have become much opener rather than clinging to some very old customs, which are opposite our living. Looking back on the history, we can find the answer to why our China was very poor and weak in the 1800’s. Yes, the answer is that we closed ourselves not to let other countries know about us, and this led us to a very hard road on which we suffered many wars that many European countries launched. So I think it is more than necessary to accept other customs instead of closing ourselves. Of course, festivals are just the beginning.
What’s more, the Open and Reform Policy results in this. So I want to say it is a great achievement for the policy. Since we took the policy into practice, our country is developing with a rapid speed. No doubt it is an essential trend.
Last but not the least, we may get closer and closer not only to our home friends but also to many foreigners. We can never feel embarrassed for not knowing the other’s customs and manners. And more misunderstandings can be avoided as well.
To sum up, the trend has its great advantage to a certain extent. However, if we admire the western customs too much, it will be a disadvantage because China is our own country, all of us should enjoy a patriotic heart. Wish in the near future, we can see the situation that westerners are enjoying themselves on the Spring Festival.
First built in 2005, the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railwaywent into operation on December,26th,2009. Overall length of its main line is 1068 kilometers, and it goes through thefollowing three provinces: Hubei, Hunan and Guangdong.
The speed of the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway is350km/h,the fastest speed in the world now, which makes itonly three hours needed from Wuhan to Guangzhou, sevenhours less than before. Besides, there are all kinds of facilities in the train, which make your trip safe and comfortable, so it ismore humanitarian.
However, the only fly in the ointment is that the train fare is too high and the station is quite far away from the downtown area.
With the development of science and technology, our life in the future will be quite different from what it is now.
At that time we’ll live in a greener and more beautiful world with trees, birds, blue skies and sunshine. And well be able to arrange things like meals, bathing and sleep with our smart phones. Robots will be able to do most of the housework for us. As for work, well mostly work at home, communicating ideas for work online. If necessary, well have video meetings with our partners around the world. During our free time, well be able to travel to places of interest in new vehicles like flying cars. Well even enjoy space trips to the moon and other planets.
All in all, our life will become more comfortable and convenient.
Online payment has been advocated around the world, which is the future way to pay bills. In China, Alipay is populareverywhere, even the small business can be finished by thisadvanced way. People play the joke that they don’t need toworry about the lack of cash. The advantages of onlinepayment are obvious.
Firstly, it saves people’s time to pay bills. The use of onlinepayment is carried out with a smart phone. Especially when we go to the supermarket, there are always a lot of people waiting in the long line. The process of costing customers’ time is totake out the cash or use the credit card, because bothcustomers and cashiers need to count the money or check the bills. But now the cashier can just scan the phone and the billwill be paid and the customer can check quickly.
Second, people don’t have to worry about getting the fakecash. Many years ago, people were easy to get fake money asthey received the change. But now, as the cash have been used less, people won’t receive the fake cash without paper money. With the development of new applications, our life will be much convenient.
I’m Li Hua, an exchange student from China during this summer vacation. I’m delighted to learn that volunteer students are wanted for a Chinese painting exhibition to be held in the local art gallery. Now I’m writing to apply for the position.
The reasons for my application are as follows. First of all, having been exposed to foreign teachers since a young age, I can communicate freely with others in English. What’s more, years of being monitor makes me a brilliant organizer, which will help a lot to keep the exhibition in order. The most important factor is that my related knowledge will undoubtedly help the audience learn more about the unique Chinese art form.
All in all, my sense of responsibility will make me a qualified volunteer. I’d appreciate it if you could take my application into consideration.
How is everything going? I have good news to tell you. A volleyball match is going to be held in a few weeks and our team will participate.
As for the detailed information of the match, there will be probably dozens of teams which are going to make a revolving competition. Additionally, not only can the top three teams each be awarded a medal but all the other teams taking part in it will get a reward as well. What will be the most attractive is that it will be a great honor for the top three teams to receive special volleyballs that have the name of the most popular volleyball player on them. Therefore, we must do enough preparations before the match, such as training as frequently as we can.
So excited am I that I can’t wait to join in it.How about you? Looking forward to your reply.
There are a lot of inventions in the history. Some of them play an important role in peoples life and some have greatly changed the world.
In my opinion, I think the most important invention is the car. First, people used to travel by train or by plane. But now, they can go any place by car. Second, when holiday comes, they can visit their family and friends by car. Third, they can also go to many places of interest to enjoy themselves.
In a word, I do agree that cars are the most important invention.

Im afraid of making mistakes before so many learned professors and before my classmates and teachers.Suddenly!
A voice came to my ears.“Everybody will make mistakes. Even the very famous American president George Bush” My English teacher said in my class.When I heard that, I think I can. I run into my teachers office happily. “I will do it.” I said. So I stand here today. In front of you.
Varieties of electronic gadgets, without which some of us cant live, come into being. Despite their conveniences, they bring people much stress, so people have to balance their advantages and disadvantages before buying them.
I cant agree more with the author. With the development of science and technology, more and more fantastic electronic gadgets come into being, which dazzles people. People cant resist the temptation to buy and them since these gadgets become outdated too quickly.
I have a lot of favourite electronic gadgets， one of which is a video MP3. As well as carrying my favourite music， a video MP3 player can play up to 150 hours of movies and TV programmes. However, it cost me 2，000 yuan. Besides, the loud volume will damage my hearing if I overuse it.
If I want to buy a necessary electronical gadget, the first factor that should be taken into consideration is whether its practical.
