My Memory About Christmas Day
Christmas Day is on December 25th, though it originated in the western country, now it is popular around the world. In China, people will spend that day happily, they will eat apples on Christmas Eve, the children will put the socks so that they could get the presents from Santa Claus. When I went to college, I had an unforgettable memory about my first Christmas Day.
As my major is English, I have many foreign teachers, so that I could have access to the local culture from them. Christmas Day is a big day for them, when the day came, they asked us to spend the day with them, because most of them left home and did not have families around. My classmates and I went to the foreign teacher’s home at that day, we brought some presents, when we arrived at his house, we found a beautiful tree with shinning lights. My teachers taught us how to cook all the cookies, we were having such great fun. I made the cookies with many favors. We talked happily and sung Christmas songs.
I learned how the foreign people spend their big day, it was such unforgettable for me.

Imagine a typical student named Lucy that has to get up early to attend extra courses on weekends. First, she went to Pudong to have a skectching lesson. Then, she has to ride the car back to Songjiang to attend a music course. Hours were spent on transportation, but she only learn few things. We all have experiences like that. Transportation between places wastes much time and we should avoid them. Today, we're going to talk about why it's such a big problem and the possible solutions to it.
Firstly, a huge amount of people's time was spent on transporting. According to velaction.com, citizens spend one-fourth of thier time in average on tranportation. This lower our efficiency and the knowledge we could learn. Secondly, transportation makes children bored and unhappy. According to nationalexpresstransit.com, long periods of transportation may have impact on students' memory and arithemetric. Again, this makes us learn less things in the same amount of time, not more.
The best solution to this problem is to learn more online at home. Firstly, we can schedule our own learning at home. According to mindtools.com, students can manage their study time as they want and they can be more effective when learning. This lets us improve our efficiency and learn how to manage our time. Secondly, we can just stay at home and waste no more time on transportation.
In conclusion, if we study online, we can improve our learning efficiency the most. Online courses also have a advantage because it's cheaper and it have proffesional teachers. More and more students will choose to learn online in the future.
I'm a middle school student. My name is ，I am fifteen years old. I'm going to have a very big and important exam in June, which will be a turning point in my life. Although my school work is very busy, I still spend some free time listening to the music. It makes me feel relaxed. I don't have many hobbies, but I can play the piano pretty well. When I feel sad or lonely, I am going to play a little piece of music.
My grade is just so so, but I'm not worried. My parents always say that I'm lazy. Actually I just like to live in my own way. On the weeekends, I usually sleep until ten o'clock. As a girl in this age, I love shopping and pay more attention to my dresses. I even can go outside and play a whole day and don't feel tired.
I do not only like sleeping but also like eating. Hot and spicy food is my favourite, so I often get pimples.
That's me, not smart, but kind, not beautiful, but outgoing. I enjoy my original lifestyle.
The Advantages of Owing More Children
Many years ago, there were so many population in China, in order to control the fast increasing number of the population, the government carried out the family plan, every family was admitted to have one child. Now the policy has changed, people can have one more child, this will bring positive change for a family.
Having one more child can foster the children with the quality of patience and independence. The parents are easy to pay all their attention to the only child, so they will spoil the child naturally. But having two children can deviate the parents’ attention, so the children will not be spoiled, they grow up with each other, in the long run, they will become more patient and independent, because they need to take care of each other.
There also will be more fun in the family. Seeing the children playing with each other, the parents will be happy, they have a happy family, it brings them comfort in the hard work and strengthens the relationship. The advantages of owning more children are so obvious, thus many people choose to own one more child.
Overcome difficulties in learning English
I have had many difficulties since I started to learn English. Since I come from the south of China, I can not distinguish nasal sounds from non-nasals and they sound exactly the same in my dialect.
Thus, I had a hard time telling “night” from “light” at the very beginning. My poor memory also added to the difficulties when I decided to enlarge my vocabulary. English words were so elusive that I could only remember them for a while.
I have spared no efforts to overcome the difficulties and finally succeeded. In order to tell the slight difference between nasal sounds and non-nasals, I forced myself to speak mandarin everyday.
Whenever I started to speak English, I reminded myself the difference between “night” and “light”.
At first I felt it rather unnatural, but as I went on I was gradually accustomed to speaking in this way.
As for my wretched memory, I gave up mechanical memorization and tried many other new ways.
At last I found a most efficient way for me: memorizing English words by their stems and affixes. This is how I have overcome some difficulties in learning English.
