  We all know that the Chinese women volleyball team beat the Serbia to claim the gold medal of the women's volleyball tournament at Rio 2016 Olympic Game.This news has convinced us and reassured us that the Spirit of China Woman Volleyball does exist.

  It seemed to win the match was not possible for the Chinese team, but the girls were very strong and insistented to fight for the last minute. Even they lost the first game, they never gave up.

  As the saying goes,”Never give up.” What it implies is that in order to achieve our goals,we should never give up,even when we are in adversity. There is a silver lining and be positive and hopeful in times of darkness.Here I can think of no better illustration of the proverb than the stories of some famous people,such as the story of the famous inventor Edison,who argued that genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.As we all know,Edison invented the light bulb.All things are difficult before they become easy.So it follows that whatever we do,we will inevitably encounter difficulties and frustration,even setbacks.What’s more,in time of this inevitable darkness,it is fruitless to curse or complain;rather be positive and to get ready for the sunshine.Positive thinking will let us do everything better than negative thinking do.When light comes with opportunity,a positive attitude is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.

  In conclusion,I think we should always keep the three words “Never Give Up” in mind, keep a positive thinking and silver lining will be the best assurance all though.We should try our best to pursue our dreams.



  Helping others has always been a traditional Chinese culture.But nowadays it is strange that people dare not give their helping hands to those in need.We've all heard story.An allegory goes that in hell,people are emaciated around the table because the spoon is so long and everyone s just concerned with feeding themselves while in heaven with the same kind of spoon,people are full and happy because they feed each other.

  This story is quite thought-provoking.It focus us to rethink our degrading moral sense and whether we should always help others.Though helping others,people tend to have higher mental well-being and happiness,which not only improves physical health but also facilitates personal growth and development.Apart from that,when you help other people get what they want, they will be more willing to help you.It is more likely to establish a harmonious interpersonal relationship and help create a good social climate.

  All in all,helping people in need should be advocated since it is always consider as a traditional virtue.Helping others is very often the best way to help yourself.No matter what the motivation is,donating time and energy to others can take you out of yourself.


  In recent years,the office medias have pointed out that students’ time spend in the library dropped tremendously from 30 hours a week to about 10 hours a week,while their time spend on the E-books soared from 15 hours a week to 28 hours a week.

  There are probably a variety of reasons for this phenomenon.On the one hand,as smart phones and other mobile devices spread,people have been hooked on everything related to digital technology,paper books are increasingly replaced by digital ones. On the other hand,in this fast-paced culture, it enables people to get E-books more quickly and easily,and to carry more than one book by just one device.Digital books make it possible to read in pieces of time and to gain much more information and knowledge.

  But E-books just like a two-edge-knife ,it has some disadvantages.First of all,reading on digital devices can lead to distractions,which will reduce immersive reading time and nagatively affect reading quality.What’s more,the inconvenience of making notes make it impossible for readers to achieve critical understanding as well as deep thinking.

  According to the previous discussions,we can come to the conclusion that much attention should be given to students’ choice.On its own,digital book is neither good or nor bad;it depend on how students use it.


  Recently,fog and haze has become a imminent threat which most northerners in China are facing.While the cities of China have greeted striking speed of development with open arms,they suffer greatly from a persistent and dense haze of pollution and smog.It is high time that we took some methods to protect the environment and ourselves.

  Generally speaking,there are three effective ways.First of all,the government should take into serious consideration the emergency and severity of the air pollution,and take measure to deal with it.Such as more public transportation systems should be put in use,more energy-saving resources should be utilized.What’s more,every little effort from individuals counts.The citizens should contribute to the reduction of pollution by driving less.Last but not least,try to reduce the time of outdoor activities,especially when the air quality is not good enough.

  From what has been mentioned above, to protect our air,we must keep in mind that whatever we give out,we take back in the long run.So we have to drive less,pollute less and make more changes.


  Dear Sir or Madam,

  I am a Chinese student who wish to apply for admission into your prestigious university. My plan is to start my course next term, and I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to provide me with certain essential information.

  First, what qualifications do I need to follow a course of study at your university? I already have a bachelor's degree from Beijing University, but I wonder if there are any further academic requirements. Second, how much are the tuition fees? Although I intend to be self-supporting, I would be interested to hear if there are any scholarships available for international students. Third, what is the situation as regards accommodation?

  I look forward to your reply, and to attending your esteemed institution.

  Yours sincerely,

  Li Ming


  Dear Sir or Madam,

  I am writing to express/airdissatisfaction/disappointment/concern regarding accommodation. I would prefer to move into a single room next semester, as I find the present sharing arrangement inconvenient.

  I must explain that the reason for my dissatisfaction is my roommate's inconsiderate behavior. For one thing, his friends are constantly visiting him; for another, he regularly holds noisy parties.

  To solve this problem/surmount this difficulty/improve this situation/crack this hard nut, I hope to draw the attention of the authorities concerned. I am sure you will agree that the only solution is for me to move into a room of my own. Therefore, I would be grateful if you could find a single room for me, preferably not in the same building but as near to the college campus as possible.

  Yours sincerely,

  Li Ming


  Dear Bob,

  I'm writing to apologize for having forgotten to return the “the Beatles” CD to you when I left Canada.I was in such a hurry that I packed everything in my luggage without checking carefully. Had I paid more attention then, I wouldn't have made such a stupid mistake.

  Now something must be done to solve the problem because I understand you cherish the CD enormously. I can either send it to you by express mail or alternatively compensate you ata reasonable price. If you do not mind, I may bring it back to you next time I go to Canada.

  Please let me know which solution you prefer at your earliest convenience. I really hope you will accept my sincere apology.

  Faithfully yours,

  Li Ming


  Dear Editors,

  I have been reading your newspaper for many years with a great enthusiasm and interest. It is my view that limiting/prohibiting the use of disposable plastic bags is of utmost significance.

  To crack this hard nut, I would like to give/offer/render/propose several useful/practical recommendations as follows. First and foremost, it is imperative for us to ban the free use of disposable plastic bags. In addition, we should develop possible alternative forms to replace them, such as paper or clothing bags. Last but not least, plastic bags should be offered in a much higher price in department stores or supermarkets.

  I hope you would find the above proposals conducive and I would like to discuss this matter to further details. Your prompt attention to my suggestions would be highly appreciated.

  Yours sincerely,
