There is always hope
Life is full of ups and downs, so is my middle school life.
I used to be a weak girl who had lost heart in various physical activities. Every time I was faced with a physical exam, I couldn’t help sweating and feeling nervous. However, after I read an article about a man who was born without arms and legs, everything changed. Instead of losing hope and giving up, he managed to live like a normal person. Through his story, I suddenly realized that there is always hope and nothing is impossible for a willing heart. Unexpectedly, I finally started to make progress in physical activities!
After all, hope never fails to make a miracle, does it?
Life is full of ups and downs, so is my middle school life.
I used to be a shy girl who dare not exchange my ideas with my classmates, which is extremely bad for my study. Therefore, I made up my mind to become more outgoing. At first, it was tough for me to involve myself in the group discussion or to join in after-school activities. Luckily, with the encouragement from my friends, I managed to express my own thoughts and do some volunteering in my spare time. It seems that I am not that shy girl any more, which is definitely a great progress I have ever made.
Just as an old saying goes, a thousand-li journey begins with the first step. However difficult it is, I should take the first step and make progress little by little.
I used to be poor at English, especially in reading and writing, which I consider extremely difficult. The biggest problem was that after reading a passage, I couldn’t fully understand it, which makes me feel very depressed and frustrated. But I kept on reading difficult English articles instead of just giving up. And I also practiced English writing whenever I had a chance. Gradually, I made remarkable progress in English and gained a lot of confidence through my constant effort. As you can imagine, nothing makes me prouder than feeling my progress in English. My dear reader, as long as you bravely face your weaknesses and take effective ways to overcome them, I believe you will, like I do, be able to see your progress in yourself.

疫情 epidemic situation新冠肺炎 novel coronavirus pneumonia
I’m glad to receive your email. You asked me to share with you what I’m doing in the epidemic situation. Here are my experiences.
Since the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan in December,2019,I have been staying at home. On the one hand, I pay close attention to the epidemic situation through watching CCTV news or surfing the Internet; on the other hand I insist on studying. Not only do I read classics, but also I have online courses given by my teachers. Besides, I take exercise every day to keep healthy. Faced with the disaster, many people including doctors, nurses and scientists act bravely and spare no effort to fight against it. They are real heroes.
Thank you for your concern. I’m looking forward to your reply.
Less Pressure, Better Life
为了更好地发现及解决同学们中存在的心理压力问题,你们班特意开展了一次以”Less Pressure, Better Life”为主题的英语演讲比赛,请你准备发言稿,谈谈你的一些缓解压力的好办法,与同学分享,内容包括:
(1) 同学们普遍存在的压力是什么; (2) 我的压力是什么; (3) 我是如何成功缓解我的压力的。
Hello, boys and girls!
Pressure is a serious problem in today’s world. Students in our class are under too much pressure. Some students can’t get on well with their classmates, while others may worry about their exams.
I’m always under pressure, too. My parents want me to be the top student in class. So they send me to all kinds of after-classes at weekends. Last Monday evening, I had a talk with my mother. I told her I was not lazy. I really felt tired. I needed time to relax. My mother agreed with me at last.
So I think a conversation with parents is necessary to solve the problem.
That’s all. Thank you!
To Be an Honest Man
请你以 “To Be an Honest Man”为题，用英语写一篇80词左右的短文。
提示词：traditional virtue（传统美德）, wolves（狼）, tell lies（撒谎）
As we know, honesty is one of the Chinese traditional virtues, so I think it is necessary for everyone to be an honest man.
I have heard of the story “Wolves are coming”. The little boy lost all his sheep at last because he told lies to the villagers twice. From the story, I know that if someone is not honest, he or she will lost good friends.
Remember that honesty is invaluable. Each of us should try to be an honest man not only in our study but also in our daily life from now on.
1.When your friend does something stupid, you don’t need to follow.
2. Don’t judge a book by its cover.
3.Life is a book in which you can choose your ending.
4.You shouldn’t tell your teacher that your dog ate your homework, especially you don’t have a dog.
Many people, sometimes myself included, tend to judge a person by his appearances.
I was afraid of my uncle who has a scared tattoo on his arm till my mother told me a “story”. When I was a three-year-old naught boy, I always ran around the neighborhood with my toy saber. Unfortunately, one day I hit a wild dog by accident. The dog became crazy and tried to bite me. It was that time my uncle appeared and protected me with his strong arm. However, this accident left a scar on his arm. My uncle went to get a tattoo in order to cover up the scars. From that moment, he is my hero instead of a bad looking uncle.
Therefore, we need to go beyond people’s looks and focus on more internal spirits in order to truly judge a person.
Don’t judge people by their looks. Someone could be bad-looking but still be nice
I used to take it for granted that one’s appearance shows whether he’s capable or not. However, my mind was changed by my physics teacher, Mr.Xia.
I could still recall the day I first saw this bespectacled, skinny and sick-looking man came into our classroom. He had such a disappointing look that I didn’t think he was competent enough. But conversely, his talking manner showed that he was an experienced and talented teacher. His teaching method and encouraging words obtained our respect and affection.
It was him that taught me not to judge people by their looks. One with bad look could also be prestigious.
Honesty is gold
Honesty, as far as I am concerned, is one of the most important virtues in one’s life. And if you keep honest to others, you will receive the honesty as well. Instead, if you lie to someone, the only you can get is another lie.
When I was seven years old, my desk mate Tom bought a new pencil box. It looks so pretty that I liked it very much. Shamefully, I took his pencil box without telling him anything and he cried a lot when he found that his pencil box was gone. After several days, I can’t bear this kind of contradiction, so I returned his pencil box and confessed that it was me who had stolen his pencil box. To my surprise, he didn’t blame me but gave it back to me as a gift.
From then on, I realized that I can never lie to anyone again. Honesty is a must not only for friendship but also for our whole society as it is the fundamental thing between people and the stability of the development of our motherland.
The Power of Teamwork
One can hardly succeed alone, so every successful man has a friend called “teamwork”.
Last term, in the craft class ,the teacher told us to make a small wooden chair, I was very confident so I worked alone ,but I made a mistake which led to my failure .Then I had to work with my deskmate. With teamwork ,Problem become easy to solve. Finally, We managed to make a small beautiful wooden chair.
As the saying goes, “Teamwork is the path to success. “After Class, Our small wooden chair was the most wonderful one in the class and I realized the power of teamwork was big .
Life in 2050
Thirty years is a long time, in which every change is reasonable. So what will life be like in 2050?
Above all, I think the way we study will change a lot. At that time, students will stay at home instead of going to school. They will just have to put on their VR glasses and learn, so students can save a lot of time.
What’s more, the transport in the future will be different. Maybe people won’t drive a car on the ground any more. Instead, they will drive flying cars which are much faster.
In conclusion, future is wonderful. Let’s wait and look forward to the life in 2050.
