My happy summer holidays



A good way of improving English

  Keeping a diary in English is one of the effective ways to improve our English writing ability. Compared with other forms of writing, it is shorter and takes less time. It can help us  keep the habit of thinking in English. If we insist this practice, we'll learn how to express ourselves in English better and better.
  In keeping a diary in English, we can run against a lot of difficulties .For example, we often have trouble finding proper words and phases to express ourselves. Also, there are many idiomatic ways of saying things in Chinese. And it is very hard for us to put them into English properly. Certainly, there are some other roadblocks we may come across in keeping a diary in English. So take it easy, the best way is to have a notebook and a Chinese-English dictionary within easy reach. Whenever something beats us, we can first put it down in our notebook and then look them up in our dictionary. We can also turn to our English teacher for help if necessary. By this way, we'll learn more.
  In all, I believe that it is of great use to keep a diary in English for the development of our writing skills.

Random thoughts

  Whether the most important thing for us is study or not is always hovering on my heart.
  As time went by, I realize that studying hard is important and will give us a good future. But something special is even more important. It will not only give us a better future, but also enrich our life.
  First of all, you should learn to open your heart and let others in. Be active and patient to listen to whatever others said. If you only put yourself in center, you will be separated from the society and lose your special style.
  Second, remember! Nothing in the world is perfect. Try your best to see others’ advantages not only to stare at others’ disadvantages. Be lenient with others and strict with yourself.
  Finally, pay more attention to affection between family members, friendship and love.
  Above all, wherever you go, you would be a welcomed person.
  Maybe, as to the life, and study, you also have much comprehension. , now, come on ! Action

My happy summer holidays

  In this summer holidays, at first, I finished my homework very quickly. I also attended a math-interesting-group for some days. After that, my father and I were on a visit to Qingdao for four days.
  Qingdao is a very beautiful city. It is called “green sea and blue sky”. When we reached Qingdao, the weather was changing frequently. In Qingdao, we climbed the mountains and swam in the sea. We also ate some sea food and drank fresh Qingdao beer. Let me tell you, the best food in Qingdao I think is fruit pancake. It is really very delicious.
  After we came back from Qingdao, my mother and I played badminton every afternoon. I read books at the other time.
  I think this summer holiday is a very happy holiday full of interesting experience.

Our motherland

  Today is our motherland’s birthday-National Day. On TV, I know China is great, Chinese people are brave and hard-working. And I know that fifty-five years ago, China was very poor. And Chinese people suffered a lot. Only the Communist Party can lead Chinese people to build New China. The Chinese people can become the hosts of the country. As a word says: Without the Communist Party there would be no new China.

I love China and I love our Party.

  During the summer vacations, I went to learn how to swim. When I went to the swimming pool, I saw many children swimming happily. The teacher taught me how to hold my breath. I was frightened at first, but gradually, I could stay in water for a long time. After some days, the teacher taught me leg- movements, hand- movements and so on. After ten days of training, I learned how to swim at last. Now I can swim freely in water. How happy I am!

The Best Wishes for My New Term

  Today, our classes in the summer holidays have finished. And tomorrow, we’ll have a rest. But the day after tomorrow, we’ll go to school again.
  I still remember that on holidays, I was always expecting to go to school, and I always felt unforgettable  because I have nothing to do everyday. But now, the most special year is coming, all the schoolmates in my age have got ready for the coming term, so have I.
  Today , Ah Wei told us that about one or two weeks later, we’ll have an examination to choose some good students in English to take part in the English Olympic competition. I am full of confidents.
  The best wish for myself is that I can pass the exam successful.

Fun time


  During the English lesson a teacher asked her class if the
  sentence " The horse and the cow is in the field " was correct .
  Most of the children thought it all right as it stood , but one
  little boy found fault with it .
  " Now , children ," said the teacher , " listen to Tommy . Why is it wrong, Tommy , to say : the horse and the cow is in the
  field ?"
  " Please , teacher , " replied Tommy , " the lady should be mentioned first ."


  上英语课时,老师问班上的学生“ The horse and the cow is in the field .”这个句子是否正确。大多数孩子们认为像这样的句子是对的,但是有个小男孩挑出了句子的毛病。
  “好了,孩子们,” 老师说,“注意听汤米的发言。汤米,为什么说The horse and the cow is in the field .是错误的呢?”

France comes to China

  “有朋自远方来,不亦乐乎?”—— “法国文化年”带你走进浪漫的法兰西之旅!
  "FRANCE" is now the hottest word in China. Why? That's because the European country is showing itself off around China.
  On October 10, French President (总统) Jacques Chirac opened the Year of France (法国文化年) in Beijing. It means that from October to next July, Chinese people will be able to enjoy finding out about France. They don't even need to go to the country.
  There are world-class concerts (音乐会). On October 10, famous French electronic musician (电子音乐家) Jean Michel Jarre gave a show at the front gate of the Forbidden City. More than 15,000 people were there. There are stunt (特技) shows by airplanes. The French stunt flying team, Patrouille de France, flew over the Great Wall on October 11. The team is one of the best in the world. There are also wonderful exhibitions (展览). On October 10, the "Design of France" exhibition opened in Beijing. The 220 things show almost every side of French people's lives during the 20th century. You can see French chairs, TVs, bicycles and even swimsuits, as well as the stories behind them.
  "I hope all these can help Chinese people better understand France and French culture," said Alain Lombard, the man in charge of (负责) the Year of France.
  Besides Beijing, other big cities like Shanghai, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong will also hold French events. So don't miss the show!
  Where did the idea come from?
  IN 1999 and 2000, China held two large events in France — the Paris China Culture Week and the China Culture Season. They were successful and made French people pay great attention to Chinese culture.
  With more exchanges (交流) between the two countries, Chinese and French people became more and more interested in learning about each other. So, on October 7, 2003, the Year of Chinese Culture started in Paris. The two countries agreed to hold the Year of France in China from 2004 to 2005.






The pure. the bright, the beautiful,一切纯洁的,辉煌的,美丽的,
That stirred our hearts in youth,强烈地震撼着我们年轻的心灵的,
The impulses to wordless prayer,推动着我们做无言的祷告的,
The dreams of love and truth;让我们梦想着爱与真理的;
The longing after something's lost,在失去后为之感到珍惜的,
The spirit's yearning cry,使灵魂深切地呼喊着的,
The striving after better hopes-为了更美好的梦想而奋斗着的——
These things can never die.这些美好不会消逝。

The timid hand stretched forth to aid 羞怯地伸出援助的手,
A brother in his need,在你的弟兄需要的时候,
A kindly word in grief's dark hour 伤恸、困难的时候,一句亲切的话
That proves a friend indeed;就足以证明朋友的真心;
The plea for mercy softly breathed,轻声地乞求怜悯,
When justice threatens nigh,在审判临近的时候,
The sorrow of a contrite heart- 懊悔的心有一种伤感——
These things shall never die.这些美好不会消逝。

Let nothing pass for every hand  在人间传递温情
Must find some work to do;尽你所能地去做;
Lose not a chance to waken love- 别错失去了唤醒爱的良机——
Be firm, and just ,and true;为人要坚定,正直,忠诚;
So shall a light that cannot fade 因此上方照耀着你的那道光芒
Beam on thee from on high.就不会消失。
And angel voices say to thee- 你将听到天使的声音在说——
These things shall never die.这些美好不会消逝。
