Ladies and Gentlemen,

Life in the residential area is quiet and peaceful and everybody is trying his best to make our surroundings more and more beautiful. Now I want to inform you that we are going to make some changes in garbage collecting.

Here are three dustbins. The red one is for something poisonous, such as used batteries and old paints. The green one is for recyclable wastes, for example, waste paper and empty bottles or tins. As to the black one, it is intended to collect kitchen garbage, which can be turned into very good fertilizers.

Garbage storing may take you a little more time, but it will bring about a lot of benefits. What’s more, we can save our natural resources to a large extent. In doing so, we are setting a good example to young generation.

Your cooperation will be highly appreciated.(146 words)

3. What do think of the idea of studying abroad?

Nowadays more and more young people are going to study abroad. Like everything else, studying abroad has both favorable and unfavorable aspects. Generally, the favorable aspects can be listed as follows:

First, they think by attending a college in a foreign country they can not only acquire useful knowledge of science but also the culture and customs of other nations. Secondly, they can take advantage of this opportunity to gain a good command of the target language. Moreover they meet different people and enjoy different culture, which may help to broaden their views.

Every coin has two sides. The negative aspects are also apparent. When they study abroad, they have to pay a lot of money. In order to help the financial burden, most overseas students have to seek for employment during the vacation, which can’t allow them to focus their attention on studies. What’s more, they may feel very lonely.

However, in the long run, the student will discover that the benefits of self-dependence and the mastery of a foreign language often outweigh the hardships experienced in their foreign studies. BY studying abroad they will be able to learn more advanced science and technology than they do in their own country. They benefits often take the form of a well-paid and satisfying job. Through above analysis, we can see that the positive aspects outweigh the negative ones. Therefore, I am in favor of going abroad to study.(238 words)

4. Chat Online

Nowadays, Internet plays an important role in our daily life. Meanwhile, chatting online is getting more and more popular with people, especially with us young students. Like everything else, chatting online has both favorable and unfavorable aspects.Generally, the advantages can be listed as follows.

waste of time. Worst of all, we may be in danger if we reveal our identity to others who have had bad intentions.

Now, the conclusion is self-evident. The negative aspects outweigh the positive aspects. Therefore, we must make wise use of Internet and should not waste too much time chatting with strangers.

5. Writing a reply to refuse one’s demand for money

Dear Liu,

Thanks for your letter dated July 19, 2007.

I wish I could help you. But you know, I’ve just bought an apartment which really burns a hole in my pocket as now I have to pay the loan each month and as a result even cannot make both ends meet. Now I realize that one must spend his money according to his pocket size, or he will end up eating humble pie he himself made.

I’m very sorry if I let you down.


Yours, xxxxx

6. Practice: Complete the review of a favorite book with a suitable attitude word or phrase: To express an opinion: I suppose, as far as I’m concerned, to my mind, personally, in my opinion To express surprise: amazingly, curiously, strangely

To emphasize: really, definitely, clearly, obviously, in fact, actually

To express a generality: in general, broadly speaking,

(1) ____, my favorite book is The House of the Spirits by Isabelle Allende. (2) ____it’s her best book, although (3) _____, I only read it for the first time a couple of months ago; I’d already read most of her other novels. (4) _____, I read a lot of novels by South American writers, but what I (5) ______like about this book is the atmosphere, which is _____superb, and plot, which is wonderful.

(7) _____, after reading the book I felt that I would like to live in the world that she describes. (8) _____, it’s the most magical book I’ve read.

7. Writing( College English07/10)








Both prestigious schools are my favorite regarding their academic reputation, so it’s really a job for me to make a decision. However, the lower tuition tips the balance in favor of the north university while the preferential 20 scores is not necessarily in my calculation.

I was born to a rural family of six people and both my parents have been struggling for survival since the time I can recall. If I choose the south university, it means my parents have to pay 3,000yuan more yearly, which almost equals our family’s annual income. Furthermore, the living cost in the North is lower than that in the South.

I have noticed that the number of the students to be admitted to the north university is only

half that to the south university, but it won’t spell a disadvantage for me as I’m very confident of my academic strength.

8. Which do you prefer, country life or city life?

Some people hold the opinion that country life is superior to city life while others argue that city life is much

better than country life. Personally, I would prefer city life, because I think city life has more advantages.

The main reason is that people living in cities have much more to enjoy, such as lectures, concerts, movies and museums, and plays. All these can help to broaden our horizons and enrich our life. Besides, there are all sorts of things to see in the shop windows. The means of communication in the city is also more convenient than that in the country. The list is almost emdless.

However, country life also has advantages to some extent. Country people are in closer contact with nature. They make friends with trees and stones, cows and dogs. They breathe fresh air and listen to the song of birds.

People will continue to argue over the subject. We’d better keep an open mind because every coin has two sides. It all depends on one’s personal taste.




Slang greatly enriches the English language, and is an important part of English. However, as slang is informal, fast-changing and very localized, it often causes confusion and puzzlement to language learners. Therefore, it is no wonder that people have different opinions about whether it is necessary to learn slang. My experience of learning English tells me that slang plays a very important part in the English language, especially in speaking. Being familiar with English slang may make it easier to communicate with native speakers of English. And learning slang helps us to better understand the English culture. Like Chinese idioms, English slang is full of beauty and wisdom which well reflects the daily life of common people in England. What”s more, we can upgrade our English to a higher level simply by mastering some slang. So personally I regard slang as a necessary part of English learning.

10. 谈人类与自然的和谐

Harmonious society nowadays is a buzzword. It not only refers to the harmony of the society, but also implicates the harmony between humans and nature, which is definitely more important, as it serves as the groundwork of the sustainable economic development, without which the harmonious society is supposed to be out of the question.

Unfortunately, while we’re taking pride in what has been obtained in economy and in modern industrial civilization, the significance of the balance of nature is unconsciously ignored and the harmony between humans and nature is gradually spoiled. As a result, man is suffering from unprecedented natural disasters, such as the pollution of air and water, global warming year after year, the depletion of resources and population explosion. Undoubtedly it is man itself who displays a great capacity for abusing his environment, resulting in the shortage of fresh water,
