去北京念大学还是留在长沙念大学是高三学生们讨论的热门话题。你们班的同学都有不同 的选择。请你用英文写一篇文章介绍你个人的选择，并阐述两至三条理由。 Sample: Where to attend university is a hot topic among us senior three students. Some of my classmates w
ill choose to go to university in Beijing, and others will stay in Changsha for college education. Personally, I would prefer to go to university in Changsha. Firstly, the climate in Changsha agrees with me. It is not very hot in summer, nor is it very cold in winter. Secondly, I want to be with my family. Changsha is near home, where Hunan cuisine can be enjoyed anywhere. Thirdly, as the capital city of our province, Changsha has good universities and good specialized fields. For example, engineering in Hunan University has a long history and clinic medicine and the materials science in Central South University are well-known. I am accustomed to the weather and food in Changsha. I would like to major in the materials science in Central South University. Therefore, Changsha is my first choice 329 刘鑫 As students whose graduation is at the corner, we are in a dilemma that to further our study in Beijing or still stay in Changsha. Everyone speaks in different voices. For me, I show more interest in going to college in Beijing. As is known to us all that Beijing is not only our capital but also a commercial city. Obviously, there are much more opportunities to choose optional jobs which catch our eyes mostly. Therefore, I can develop my interested jobs. Though small cities may have better environment, I still prefer the big city, because I want to experience a different life which only big cities can provide. Last but not least, Beijing gathers our national cultures and get more close to other countries, which can expand my knowledge. Weighing up the pros and cons, I’ll go to college in Beijing rather than in Changsha. 328 周丰 The last year of high school is a time for hard work and also a time for reflection. We are now standing at a crossroad, which is whether we should study in Changsha or Beijing to further our education? Well, different people have different views. And I would like to study in Beijing. Beijing is the capital of China so there are many advanced concepts in that city that young men will benefit from. What’s more, there are also some universities which are superior to the local universities for its high-quality level and splendid history. So why not finish your university in Beijing? 假如你是 Steven, 某报社的英文编辑， 请你根据李华所写信的内容结合自己的人生经历用英 文写一封回信。 Yours, Li Hua Dear Editor, I am Li Hua, a student in Senior Three. These days I am feeling frustrated for my
failure in the exam. I am wondering whether I can achieve my goal next year. I’d appreciate it if you can give me some advice. Sample: Dear Li Hua, Thank you for your trust. It is quite understandable for a student, especially a Senior Three one, to feel frustrated when they fail the exam, but I’d say that what you should do now is to build up your confidence and prepare for the next. I still remember the hardest time when I had difficulty in looking for a job. I wandered along the road at midnight, feeling despaired about my future. Thanks to the encouragement from my parents, I didn’t give up. They told me that only by keeping on struggling could I succeed in the end. After some interviews, I was lucky enough to be offered a job as an assistant editor for a newspaper. Never lose heart whenever you get into troubles. You can go to your teachers to find out the exact reasons for your failure. I am sure you will make progress in your study. Best wishes!

I had an English oral test just now. Though it was not perfect, I am satisfied with it generally. Standing at the waiting entrance, I waited with expectation. For a while, it was turn for me. At first, I was asked some basic questions. I answered smoothly without hesitation. However, as the questions became more and more difficult, I felt a little nervous, because I can’t express my meaning with my limited words. I didn’t know how to do. Then I told myself: ‘As long as you try your best, it will be OK.’ Therefore, I came to deal with those questions with confidence. Finally, I passed. What a valuable experience it was! I learnt something from it. Wherever you are, we shouldn’t be nervous. As long as you try your best, you will succeed. Dear Mary, I’m writing to you to tell you something about the oral English test I took the other day. I still remember clearly how I was feeling when I was waiting for the test. I sat on the chair outside of the examination hall uneasily. I was wondering what the teacher was like and what difficult questions he would ask me. Also, I was also worried about what would happen if I failed it. However, things turned out fine and all my fear was in vain. Through this test, I realize how important it is to make full preparations before we deal with something. Certainly, I hold the belief that I will succeed after mountains of obstacles.
