The Good and Bad Sides of Setting off Firecrackers

燃放鞭炮的利与弊

Dear Editor,
I’m writing to tell you about our discussion we had on the afternoon of last Wednesday about the good and bad sides of setting off firecrackers during the Spring Festival. 20 boy and 20 girl students attended the discussion. As a result, 40% of them believe that setting off firecrackers certainly adds pleasure and joy to the festival, therefore, it is a wonderful tradition. But another 40% of the students think that setting off firecrackers causes air and noise pollution, and what’s worse, it sometimes causes terrible accidents to us and to our property. The other 20% have never thought about it or don’t care a bit.

Yours truly,

Li Hua

Disability

残疾

There are too many disabled people in the world. They have no differences from country to country. Some of them were disabled when they were born, the others were injured or hurt in all kinds of accidents, which made them disabled. Almost all of us feel sorry for them. We commiserate with them because they are another kind of people. But some disabled people refuse others’commiseration. They think they can do everything by themselves. They don’t consider themselves as people who have defects. They think they are the same as normal people.

In fact, a great number of people with disabilities should be taken care of by others. They get help from the government or some beneficent organizations in society. But that’s not enough. They must look after themselves on their own. When a baby with disabilities is born, it should be taught to learn some particular skills to live. Or else, it would fail in the future. So one with disabilities must have abundant confidence to fit the hard life without others’help.

Encouraging Buying Cars Isn’t Fit For Today

目前不适合鼓励买车

Nowadays, we can often hear the discussion whether buying cars should be encouraged. Some people suggest that we should buy cars. But others claim that driving cars is not a wise idea. As far as I am concerned, I am in favor of the latter opinion.

To begin with, there are few parking lots, so the streets are made narrower by the cars parked along the roads. For example, my father could not find any place to park when we went to the supermarket.

Moreover, many drivers do not obey regulations, because people do not pay enough attention to the rule of traffic. For instance, I often see people cross the road when the traffic lights are still red.

Last but not least, the growth of new roads’construction is usually slower than the increasing number of cars. For example, the length of the road has gone up by 20% in 2002. However, the number of cars increased by 50% in the meantime.
From what have been discussed above, we could draw a conclusion that encouraging buying cars is not fit for today.

English Language Changing

变化中的英语

The English language is different from any other language.Yet English words do not stay the same. The language is always changing.We need new words for new inventions and new ideas.Different words come into use, or older words are used in new ways. English can change by borrowing words from other languages. Now new space and science words are being borrowed from other countries, too.Adding two words together also makes new words. Sometimes new words are shorter forms of older words. The names of people and products can become new words.

If I Won Five Million Dollars In the Lottery

假如我获得福利彩票五百万元

If I won five million dollars in the lottery, I would help those who lead a miserable life. First of all, I would donate half of the money to some orphanages in the south of Taiwan. For one thing, I live in the south, and I think I had better begin charity at my native land. Another reason is that my loving parents provide me with sufficient food and clothing, so I wish those orphans to eat and dress as well as I.

Secondly, I would give one fourth of the money to other charities, such as the institutions for the homeless aged people. It is the most pitiful thing on earth for the elderly to be deserted by their children. Therefore, I hope they can live decently. As to the rest of the money, I would, anytime and anywhere, send to those that are reported to be in distress for money in the TV news program or in the newspapers.

Anyway, I would help these people live better by giving them the money won in the lottery.

Pollution

污染

River pollution, as China Daily reports, exists not only in the Huaihe River but also in many other places of our country. Besides river pollution, there are also air pollution, noise pollution and so on. All kinds of environmental pollution do great harm to human beings. Now more and more people have come to realize how serious this problem is. Our government has been trying its best to take measures and call on people to fight against pollution. Though we’ve done lots of work, we still have a long way to go. But we’re sure that we’ll win the battle against pollution in the end.
