Summer Holiday Part-time Job
 During the summer holiday of 2005, I thought I should do something meaningful instead of staying at home and watching TV. So I got a job at a KFC fast food restaurant and worked there as a cleaner. Every day I went to work early in the morning and got home late in the evening. I worked 7 hours a day for three weeks.
 The job was hard, boring and seemed endless, which made me so tired that I almost quit half way. After all, I stuck to it with my determination.
 Finally, I finished the job before the new school term began.
 Now, I understand what labor means. I think it was really a successful experience.
Advertisements in Our Life
 We live in a world of advertisements. We see and hear them everywhere. No one can avoid being influenced by advertisements. Radio, television and computers have made it possible for advertisements to attract the attention of millions of people. Therefore, it has become an important part of our daily life.
 On one hand, advertising greatly promotes sales，on the other hand, in their efforts to tell people about products and events, advertisements provide us with a large amount of the latest information. Meanwhile, to make an advertisement, a lot of people will have to work together. So with the development of advertising a lot of jobs are being created.
 In a word, advertising is an important business.
American Student’s Visit
Boys and girls,
May I have your attention, please? About fifty American students will come to visit our school on October the 22nd. We’ll meet them at the school gate at 8:30 am. At 9:00, we’ll take them to the conference room, where a get-together will be held. After that, we’ll show them around our botanical garden and the school-run factory. At 11:00, there will be a basketball match on the playground. They’ll leave our school at 12:00.
 We must talk with them in English. Please be friendly and courteous to them. Remember, we not only stand for our school, but also stand for China.
 Thank you. Hope you have a good time
I’m a Senior Three student and I’m in trouble. I used to like English, but now I am having some problems in English, especially in English writing. Though I know English is a very important subject. I think now it has become a little difficult for me. My poor writing skills have caused me to get low marks on my English exams. This has made me dislike English and I am afraid to take any more exams. I really want to change my situation and enjoy learning English again. I wonder why so many students like English and can get good results in English exams. I do want to be one of the best students and go to a famous university after graduation. This is my dreaming, but my English is not good enough. What should I do?
Secrets to Write a Beautiful Article
 I have received your letter and I’m glad to give you some suggestions. First of all, don’t be disappointed. Many students find it difficult to write well. In my opinion, if you want to improve your writing, you should do the following things. First, do some studying with the set phrases and sentence structures. Keep a list of them and then try to make some sentences with them. Second, read English as much as possible. There are many things that can’t be learnt immediately. You must see them in books many times. Then you’ll be able to use them correctly yourself. So, in order to write well, you must learn to read a lot. Finally, you’d better recite some good passages. The more passages you read, the better you will write.
I’m sure you can improve your written English as long as you study hard. Remember, practice makes perfect.
