Parents, especially those of teenagers, care about their children’s education more than anything else. They could do everything for their children. Many of them spend most of their spare time coaching their children in studies; those who have time or cannot do it have hired tutors. Some also send children to after-class schools. Some even have tried to mould their home environment more favorable for study. It seems as if a better education is all that parents expect for children.
The present situation can be explained by the following reasons. First of all, as our country’s economy moves ahead healthily, many parents have become aware that future success depends more and more on skills and education. Lack of training and education will no longer ensure young people to have a promising future. Secondly, it is evident that in a competitive society there are both losers and winners. The better skills and knowledge children possess, the more opportunities they will be ensures. What is more, with school tuitions increasing it is also reasonable for parents to expect their children to be somebody or do something great as a result of education they have received.
Certainly, it is good to see much of parents’ attention on children’s education. However, in my opinion, emphasis should also be laid on fostering other abilities and personal qualities. True, it is important to learn to succeed, but the first thing to learn is how to survive and how to be a qualified citizen. If this is included in good education that parents are seeking now, their children will be definitely ensured not only of a bright future but also a sound intellectual and mental foundation, hence a healthy life.
There are similarities and differences between high school life and college life. Here are some of them.
For one thing, there are several similarities between high school life and college life. First, the most important task in high school and college life is both studying. Studying is the most important task as a student. Second, we need a goal to fight for in both high school life and college life. To lead a meaningful and fulfilled life, we have to set up a goal to fight for.
For another, there are also some differences between high school life and college school. First, our studying is also the biggest differences between high school life and college life. In high school, we are required to follow our teachers’ steps and finish their assignments every day and even every course. While in college, there are no teachers giving such detailed requirements to us and we can choose study or not according to our own willing. What to study and how to study is totally depends on us. Therefore, the ability of self-control is very important in college life. Second, the flexibility of time is another difference. In high school, we have no much leisure except for our time of study. However, in college, we have much leisure controlled by ourselves except the time of classes. And we have more time to do what we like. Finally, college life is much more various and rich than the high school one. In addition to study, we can attend many other activities in leisure and these activities make our college life be more wonderful.
In brief, there are both similarities and differences between high school life and college life. However, no matter we are in which period, we need to make full use of every day so that we will never feel regretful.
Ladies and Gentlemen: My topic is Honesty. As a correspondent of the Qingdao Morning News, I visited Dr. James Gilman, the President of the International Committee for Marco Polo Studies in England. In this picture, this is James, and this is me and we are looking at a dragon’s tooth. This is a true story. /chuzhong/chusan/ 65 years ago, James lived in Qingdao. Then he was only 5 years old. He often visited the Aquarium and was fascinated by a creature on display there, which he thought was a dragon. He was afraid of its sharp teeth and wanted one to keep as a treasure. In the late 1930s, when the Japanese occupied Qingdao, his family had to leave. On his last day in Qingdao, he ran to the Aquarium and pulled out one of the teeth from the dragon’s mouth. He kept the tooth for the next 65 years, but the feeling of guilt at having stolen it was there in the background all through his life. It was always on his conscience, and the feeling intensified as he became older. Finally he decided to put right his childish error. In 20xx, he visited Qingdao and returned it to the Aquarium with his sincere apologies. He received a warm welcome. When James visited Qingdao, I accompanied him all the time and reported on his visit. I was deeply touched by his honesty. It has taught me a lot. I think to err is human. The important thing is to have the courage to admit and correct one’s error. Honesty is a vital quality of human behaviour. So we should try to keep an honest mind in everything we say and do. I would like to say to all of my friends: Let’s be honest people of good moral character. Thank you.
When we have something annoy us, we will naturally to find someone to talk about it, the first choice is friend.
We will not talk about it in front of our parents, because we don’t want them to worry about us.
Friend is so important in our life, we have many friends, we will share our happiness and sorrow with them, we hang out together, in a word, friends are part of our life.
What will happened if someone have no friend? We hear from the news that the crime people are isolated by others, most of them have no friends, their view point about the world is distorted.
Without friends, people have no where to relieve their emotion, the long time’s depression of the emotion distract people from the normal life.
So friends are very important, we can’t live without friends.

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Dali City, and I'm sure you will enjoy a pleasant journey here. Indeed, Dali fails no visitors.
Located in the west of Yunnan Province, Dali enjoys a long and splendid history. For five hundred years, it served as the capital of Dali until the collapse of the empire.
Blessed with an agreeable weather, Dali offhrs a cozy home for a large variety of natural plants. For its superiority in natural condition, Dali earns such fame as "Orient Swiss" and "the city of Flower".
Dali has been widely praised for its attraction in natural beauty: Dali's fascination, however, does not end there. Standing in silence here are numerous ancient temples, steles, bells and towers, as the witness of the history of Dall and the proof of the wisdom and creativity of the Dali people.
Our journey here will cover most of the famous spots, making our schedule extremely tight. This afternoon, however, you may take a short rest to recover from the fatigue of such a long trip. After supper, we will have a tour in the city to unveil the glamour of Dali behind the curtain of night. There will be more excitements and enjoyments awaiting you in the days to come.
That is a brief introduction of our city: and, please DO feel free to ask questions if you have any.
Thank you for your attention.
The world is not only hungry,but also is short of thewater.This may sound strange for 70% of the surfaceof the use is covered by water.But 97% of this is seawater or soft water.Man can only use the other 3%fresh water that country rivers,lakes and from otherground and we can't ever use all of that becausesome of them are the iceberges and glaciers. What'sworse, some of the fresh water has been polluted.Ourneed of water is increasing rapidly day by day. So we should take the measures to solve theproblem.
