They believe a public park should be free of charge. People need a place where they can rest and enjoy themselves. 论据一 Changing entrance fees will no doubt keep some people away. What is more, it will become necessary to build gates and walls, which will do harm to the appearance of a city. 论据二

Taking Part in School Activities As for school activities, students mainly hold two views. Many students are very enthusiastic about school activities because they think that learning from textbooks is not their only task and they should take any chance to get some practical knowledge. Besides, after long hours’ study, they can relax themselves by participating in school activities.
requires sth. of sb. 要求某人某事
However, a large group of students take little interest in them and spend most of their time on study. They believe that they should make full use of time to study and that school activities have little to do with their further development. Thus sometimes they even laugh at those who take an active part in school activities. As far as I am concerned, I prefer the first view. On the one hand, we can learn a great deal from other students we meet in activities. Furthermore, modern society requires many qualities of young students, so “book worms” can’t keep up with the times.
Taking Part in School Activities As for school activities, students mainly hold two views. Some students are inclined to approve of it. They believe that by taking part in school activities, students can not only learn some practical knowledge, but also relax themselves. However, others pay little attention to it. Obviously, they think study is students’ only task. What this means is that school activities have nothing to do with study. Besides, they sneer at those who take part in it actively.
As for as I am concerned, the former opinion holds more weight. On top of the abovementioned positive effects it might bring about, the school activities also enrich our school life and help us to understand each other better. So, we cannot emphasize the importance of taking part in school activities enough.

Dear editor, The Department of Education announced…
能锻炼身体，丰富校园生活 be good for health and can enrich our school life 培养社交能力 improve their sociability. 不能达到锻炼身体的目的 can't help students to keep fit
Dear Editor, The Department of Education announced in June, 2007 that from Sept. 1, 2007 primary and secondary school students will have dance class, which has led to a heated debate. Some people think group dancing is good for health and can enrich our school life. It helps students understand each other better. Also it can help students improve their sociability. It is a healthy means of communication.
But other people hold the opposite view. They feel that in the countryside, the teachers don't have enough experience in teaching dancing and also there isn't enough room for students to learn dancing. Last but not least, group dancing is just a form or a performance, which can't help students to keep fit. As to me, group dancing may lead to an increase of boys and girls falling in love (with each other) once they have more chances for physical interaction. Yours, Li Hua

Dear editor， I am writing to tell you about a recent discussion we had on whether or not university students should be．．．
Dear editor, I am writing to tell you about a recent discussion we have had on whether or not university students should be financially independent. 35% of my classmates think that university students doing part-time jobs will help one to gain working experience and learn more of society. Besides, when students find it hard for their parents to earn money, they won't form the habit of
wasting their money. 50% of the students hold the view that university students needn't be financially independent, because trying to make money in their spare time will affect their studies. They also think that they can repay their parents and society by studying harder. 15% of my fellow students, myself included, partly agree with them.
We think that as grown-ups, we shouldn't depend on our parents any more. Personally, I thought if our parents can afford to pay the tuition fee for us, we should devote ourselves to our studies and try to do better. Thank you for reading my letter. Yours, Lin Ming
