I'd like to talk about my good friend. We've known each other since primary school and have shared many things together. The good news I heard about him was that he finally started dating the girl he's liked a long time. This happened just last week. He admired her for her intelligence and cuteness. However, he was always too shy to express his feelings. After months of hesitation, he finally gathered the courage to ask her out, and to his delight, she accepted. I heard this news directly from him. He called me the same day he asked her out. I could hear the excitement in his voice as he told the story. He told me about his nervousness before asking her, the relief when she said yes, and the joy he felt afterward. When I heard this news, I was overjoyed for him. Knowing how long he had been harboring these feelings and how much courage it took for him to express them, I felt incredibly proud of him. It was heartwarming to hear that his feelings were reciprocated, and I couldn't help but share in his happiness.
- ls it good to share something on social media?
- In my opinion, it’s not always advisable to share everything on social media. While it can be a great platform for connecting with others, it also poses potential risks to privacy. Personal information could be misused by malicious individuals, leading to unwanted attention or harassment.
- Should the media only publish good news?
- I don’t believe that the media should only publish good news. While it’s important to highlight positive events and achievements, it’s equally crucial to be aware of the challenges and dangers in our society. This balance helps us stay informed.
- How does the social media help people access information?
- Social media platforms play a significant role in information dissemination. They provide a space where people can share news, updates, and ideas quickly and widely. However, the quality and reliability of the information can vary, so it’s important to verify sources.
- What kind of good news do people often share in the community?
- In my observation, people often share personal achievements and joyful experiences in the community. This could be anything from a delicious meal they enjoyed at a new restaurant, beautiful scenery from a recent trip, or a cherished moment with a loved one.
- Do most people like to share good news with others?
- Yes, I believe most people enjoy sharing good news with others. Spreading positive news not only brightens one’s own mood but also brings joy to others. It fosters a sense of community and positivity.
- Do people like to hear good news from their friends?
- Generally, yes. However, it might depend on the nature of the relationship. If the friendship is genuine, hearing good news from friends can be delightful. But in some cases, if the relationship is not solid, there might be feelings of jealousy.

What the it was for
What you could see in the advertisement
And explain why you did not like it.
Not long ago I was browsing videos in tiktok when I saw `a short video advertisement released by the official account of McDonald's in China. It was an ad promoting the new McDonald's fried chicken. In that ad, a couple went to McDonald's for a meal together, and across from the man sit a male who had ordered the new fried chicken. When the woman turned to pick up the meal, her boyfriend could not resist the temptation(诱惑) of fried chicken and ate it with the man opposite him after asking for permission. Finally, the two men met over fried chicken, fell in love, and they left the woman behind to leave the restaurant. See here I had a great disgust for this ad. The man in the ad not only disrespected his girlfriend, but even fell in love with a man, which is outrageous(反常的) and disgusting. In China, there are many women who are cheated by gays to get married, they cheat women's feelings and bodies in order to get married and have children, so that the women suffer great harm physically and mentally. But this ad uses the gay community as a gimmick(噱头) to get people to watch it, without any consideration for the suffering some women are going through. That's why I hate this ad.
- What types of products are often advertised in your country?
- In my country, a wide variety of products are advertised, but food and cosmetics seem to be the most prevalent. From new restaurants promoting their signature dishes to beauty brands launching their latest products, these advertisements are everywhere and play a significant role in influencing consumer choices.
- Is it a good idea to use famous people in advertisements？
- Yes, I believe it’s a good idea to use celebrities in advertisements. Their wide recognition and influence can attract a larger audience, including their fan base. Moreover, some people tend to trust products endorsed by celebrities, believing that these famous figures add credibility to the product.
- Which one is more effective, print advertising and online advertising?
- In the current digital age, I would argue that online advertising is more effective than print advertising. With the proliferation(扩散) of smartphones and the internet, people are spending less time reading print materials and more time online. Online advertisements have a wider reach and can be targeted more precisely based on user data.
- Is it important to educate young people about the dangers of advertising?
- Absolutely, it’s crucial to educate young people about the potential pitfalls(陷阱) of advertising. While advertisements can be informative(提供有用信息的), they can also be misleading or manipulative. It’s important for young people to develop critical thinking skills to discern the truth behind the advertising messages.

How often you visit it.
And explain why you often visit it.
I first discovered the website I frequently visit from a WeChat group chat. At that time, it was a hot topic among many people. The website is called ChatGPT, an incredibly powerful AI conversation generation tool. It's designed in such a way that you can ask it anything, and it will generate an answer based on a massive dataset it has been trained on. I find myself visiting this website daily. The reason for this frequent visitation is that I often have numerous academic questions that need answering. ChatGPT has been a valuable resource in this regard. Moreover, it has been a great help in my coding endeavors. It assists me in writing and modifying code, which has been immensely beneficial. But the assistance doesn't stop at academics and coding. Interestingly, ChatGPT has also been instrumental in my English learning journey. It's been a comprehensive tool for me, and that's why I often visit it.
- 1.What are the most popular and least popular apps in China?

- people prefer reading news on the Internet because it offers convenience and flexibility. They can access news anytime, anywhere, on their smartphones or computers.

- 4.What kinds of people like going to the library to read and study?
- University students, especially those facing final exams, are the most frequent visitors to the library. During this period, they are often in a rush, much like me, needing to study intensively to avoid failing their courses.

- In my opinion, not necessary. Nowadays, many people don’t have the time to go out to read books. They prefer buying books to read at home or reading online.
- 6.What are the differences between old people and young people when they use the Internet?
- Based on my observations of myself and my parents, young people like me tend to use the Internet for gaming, chatting with friends, and reading news on various topics.
- In contrast, my parents primarily use the Internet for receiving work-related messages in their work group chats, with little to no entertainment.

The time was at the beginning of this semester, and the location was right next to our school. I was late for a dinner with a person I like, which was our first meeting. I wanted to make a good impression and took a considerable amount of time to dress up, but unfortunately, I didn't manage my time well and ended up being about 10 minutes late. I felt a wave of guilt wash over me because we both placed great importance on this date, yet I was the one who was late. I immediately apologized to her, expressing my regret for the delay. From that moment on, I made a promise to myself and to her that I would always allocate enough time for preparation for every date with her. This experience was a wake-up call for me about the importance of time management, especially when it comes to important events.

And explain how you felt about doing something with one or more people.
Well, I’d like to talk about something I did with my girlfriend last weekend. We cooked a delicious meal together at home. We decided to do this because we both enjoy cooking and eating, and we wanted to spend some quality time together. We cooked three dishes: mapo tofu, fried chicken and tomato egg soup. We only had one pot, so it took us about two hours to finish everything. We had to take turns using the pot and washing it after each dish. We also prepared some rice and salad to go with the main dishes. I felt very happy and satisfied doing something with my girlfriend. We had a lot of fun and laughter while cooking. We also learned some new skills and recipes from each other. Cooking together was a great way to bond and communicate with each other. We felt closer and more connected after sharing this experience. The meal was very tasty and rewarding. We enjoyed eating what we made and complimenting each other’s efforts. We also cleaned up the kitchen together afterwards. It was a wonderful evening that I will always remember.

- 2.Is it important for school children to like their classmates?
- I believe it’s crucial for school children to have a positive relationship with their classmates. This not only alleviates feelings of loneliness but also enhances the efficiency of group tasks. When children work together, they can often achieve more than they could individually. It’s the concept of ‘two heads are better than one’ in action.

- A good colleague is someone who is reliable, communicative, and has a pleasant personality. They complete their tasks on time, ensuring that the team’s workflow is not disrupted.

Describe the part of your home where you most enjoy relaxing.
You should say:
What part of your home this is
When you usually relax there
How you relax there
And explain why you find this part of your home a good place to relax in.
My favourite place in the house is my bedroom. My bedroom is simply furnished with a bed, a desk, a wardrobe(衣柜) and pink wallpaper on the walls to make the room look dreamy. I like the bedroom for a simple reason that it's the only place where I can be completely alone because I still live with my parents at present. I need a space to be alone to study, relax and think. During the day I spend most of my time at my desk reading and studying. When I have a break, I watch some films or listen to music. I also practice yoga on my bed every night before sleeping, which helps me sleep better. Sometimes I even sing songs in order to let off steam(释放压力) in my bedroom. All in all, I find it very relaxing and enjoyable to do anything in my bedroom because that is where I can do whatever I want without constraint or supervision and I always prefer to be alone than with others even if they are my family.
- 1.Why is it difficult for some people to relax?
- I think it’s difficult for some people to relax because they have a lot of stress from their studies or work, and they don’t have much time to relax. Or maybe when they have some free time, they are still worried about other things and can’t focus on relaxing.
- 2.What are the benefits of doing exercise?
- Doing exercise has many benefits for our health and well-being. It can make us feel happy, improve our fitness, and give us more energy to do other tasks. Exercise can also prevent some diseases and help us live longer.
- 3.Do people in your country exercise after work?
- In my country, most people don’t exercise after work. They are usually very tired and just want to go home, have dinner and rest. Or maybe they listen to some music or watch TV to relax. Only a few people go to the gym or do some sports after work.
- 4.What is the place where people spend most oftheir time in their home?
- I think the place where people spend most of their time in their home is their bedroom. This is a place where they can feel comfortable and peaceful, and they can be alone and relax. They can also sleep, read, or do other things they like in their bedroom.
- 5.Do you think there should be classes for training young people and children how to relax?
- Yes, I think there should be classes for training young people and children how to relax. Everyone should learn how to cope with stress and anxiety in their life, and not always be nervous or tense. Relaxation skills can help them improve their mental health and performance in school or work.
- 6.Which is more important, mental relaxation or physical relaxation?
- I think physical relaxation is more important than mental relaxation. I believe that our physical health is the foundation of everything else, and we should take good care of our body. Some people use unhealthy ways to relax their mind, such as eating too much or staying up late to watch shows, but this can harm their body in the long run.
Describe an interesting old person you have met.
You should say:
How you met him/her
Who the person is
What kind of person he/she is
And explain why you think this old person is interesting.
An interesting old person I have met is my neighbor who moved in next door to me last year. I met him one day when I was watering my garden and he came out to do the same. We started chatting and I learned that he is gay and his partner would move in with him in a month. We talked about his love story, which I was curious about, and he told me how they met at a bar and fell in love. From our conversation, I felt that he is a lovely and kind person. He also has many hobbies, such as running, singing rock music, painting, and so on. He shared with me some of his experiences of performing with his band in the past. I think he is very interesting because he still has a passion for life even at his age. He also impressed me with his open-mindedness and courage. He said he had faced a lot of challenges and discrimination because of his sexual orientation, but he never gave up on himself or his dreams. He said he was proud of who he is and what he has achieved. He also encouraged me to be confident and follow my heart. I really enjoyed talking to him and I think he is a great role model for me. He showed me that age is just a number and that happiness comes from within. He also taught me to respect and appreciate diversity in people. I think he is a very interesting old person and I hope to see him again soon.
- 1.Do you think old people and young people can share interests?
- Yes, I think old people and young people can share interests. I think everyone should have some common hobbies, such as sports or reading, that can bring them together. And I also think that old people and young people have different perspectives on things, so they can learn from each other and gain different insights when they communicate.
- 2.What can old people teach young people?
- I think old people can teach young people a lot of things, such as life skills, values and wisdom. Old people have more experience and knowledge than young people, so they can offer some guidance and advice to young people who may face some challenges or difficulties in their lives.
- 3.Are there benefits when one person is interested in another person?
- Well, it depends. I think it can be beneficial when one person is interested in another person, if they have mutual respect and understanding. For example, if two people are interested in each other romantically, they can develop a relationship that can make them happy and fulfilled. Or if one person is interested in another person’s work or talent, they can collaborate or learn from each other and improve themselves. But I don’t think it is beneficial when one person is obsessed with another person, or even disturbs their life. That is rude and unhealthy.
- 4.Do you think many people today are too self-centred?
- I think many people today are too self-centered, especially in some developed countries where most people are only children. They have been spoiled and pampered by their parents since they were young, so they naturally grow up to be more concerned about themselves than others. They may also be selfish and greedy, and only pursue their own interests without considering the consequences for the society or the environment.
Describe a time when you were teaching a friend or a relative to do something.
You should say:
Who you taught
What you taught him/her to do
How easy it was to teach him/her
And explain how you felt about teaching this friend/relative.
A time when I was teaching a friend or a relative to do something was when I taught my girlfriend how to use chatgpt to search for the answers she wanted. Chatgpt is a website that uses artificial intelligence to generate responses based on the user’s input. I think it’s very useful and fun to use. To use chatgpt, she needed to register with an overseas phone number, so I taught her how to find a website that sells foreign phone numbers and buy an Indian one. Then she received a verification code and completed the registration process. After that, she just needed to type in whatever she wanted to know in the search box and chatgpt would tell her. The process of teaching her was very enjoyable, maybe because we have known each other for a long time and we have a good rapport. Also, this was not a very difficult thing to teach. She was very interested and curious about chatgpt and asked me a lot of questions. I showed her some examples of how to use it and some tips and tricks to get better results. I felt very happy to help her because I think helping others makes me feel valuable and useful. It also makes me feel closer to her because we share something in common and we can have fun together. She thanked me for teaching her and said she liked chatgpt a lot. I think it was a rewarding experience for both of us.
- 1.What practical skills can young people teach old people?
- how to use smartphones. I remember I taught my grandparents how to use smartphones to pay for things online, because before that they only used cash. They were very happy and grateful to learn this skill, because it made their lives more convenient and modern.
- 2.What skills can young people teach old people besides technology?
- how to speak a foreign language. Young people nowadays have more opportunities and resources to learn different languages, such as English, French or Spanish. They can share their knowledge and methods with old people who may want to travel abroad or communicate with foreigners.
- 3.How can young people teach old people skills?
- such as by demonstrating, explaining, giving feedback or using multimedia. For example, if young people want to teach old people how to use smartphones, they can show them how to operate the device step by step, and then let them practice by themselves. They can also explain the functions and benefits of using smartphones and answer any questions that old people may have.
- 4.How can we know what to do when we want to learn something new?
- I think when we want to learn something new, we can know what to do by doing some research and planning. For example, if I want to learn how to play the guitar, I can first search online for some information about the guitar, such as its history, structure and types. Then I can find some sources of learning, such as books, courses or tutors. I can also set some goals and schedules for my learning process, such as how much time I will spend on practicing each day, or what songs I want to learn in a month.
- 5.Do you think ‘showing’ is a better way than ‘telling’ in education?
- Yes, I think showing is a better way than telling in education, because it is more engaging and effective for learners. Showing means using visual aids or examples to illustrate a concept or a skill, rather than just using words or explanations. Showing can help learners to understand better and remember longer, because it appeals to their senses and emotions.
- 6.Do people in your country like to watch videos to learn something?
- Yes, I think people in my country like to watch videos to learn something, because videos are very accessible and attractive for learners. Videos are easy to find and watch on the internet or on TV, and they cover a wide range of topics and levels of difficulty. Videos are also very appealing for learners, because they use sound, image and motion to convey information and entertainment

It was much bigger than my previous school and it had many facilities and activities for students. There were many clubs and societies that I could join, and there was a street that sold a lot of delicious food. The campus also had two big supermarkets where I could buy anything I needed. The dormitory was very clean and comfortable, and I was impressed by how well-organized it was. I felt very excited on my first day at the university because I thought it was a great place to study and have fun. I also felt a bit nervous and anxious because I didn’t know anyone there and I had to make new friends. I hoped that I would fit in well and enjoy my academic life. I remember this about my first day at the new school because it was a very important and memorable day for me. It marked the beginning of a new chapter in my life, where I had to be more independent and responsible. It also opened up a lot of opportunities and possibilities for me to learn new things and meet new people. It was a day that changed my life for the better.

- such as helping them prepare their clothes and pocket money, telling them what to expect and how to behave at school, introducing them to their teachers and classmates, and encouraging them to be confident and positive.

- I think children can benefit a lot from starting school, such as developing their communication and social skills, learning new knowledge and skills, becoming more independent and responsible, making new friends and having fun.

- such as being fired or laid off, moving to a different place, finding a better offer or condition from another company, having a conflict or dissatisfaction with the current job, pursuing a personal interest or passion, seeking a career change or development, or having some personal or family issues that affect work.
- 6.Are big companies better than small companies? Why?
- I don’t think big companies are necessarily better than small companies. It depends on the situation and the preference of the workers.
- Some workers may prefer big companies because they offer more security, prestige, resources, training, diversity or opportunities.
- Some workers may prefer small companies because they offer more flexibility, creativity, autonomy, intimacy or recognition. I think both types of companies have their pros and cons.
- 7.How do children socialize with each other?

I usually use it to take pictures of some scenery, such as the sun, flowers and grass. I keep it at my home, and every month when I go back home, I will take it with me when I go out for a walk, and take photos of the landscape along the way. But I find it hard to use sometimes because in order to highlight the beauty of the scenery, I need to adjust a lot of parameters, such as the aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. I think these are very difficult to adjust, and sometimes I will memorize them but also forget them. And there are many advanced features that require special skills to operate, such as HDR, panorama and time-lapse. I have tried to learn how to use this camera from some online tutorials123, but they are too complicated and technical for me. I don’t have much time or interest to study them in depth. I just want to take some nice photos easily and quickly. Maybe it is more suitable for professional photographers or enthusiasts who have more knowledge and experience in this field. But for me, it is more like a burden than a pleasure.

An activity that I enjoyed doing in my free time when I was younger was climbing trees. There was a very tall tree outside my house, and whenever my friends and I were bored, we would meet up and climb up the tree to see the view from the top. The tree was very big, and it had many strong branches that could support our weight, so it was also very safe. I liked climbing trees maybe because it was something that I could do with my friends, and that made me very happy. And the view from the tree was amazing, I could see far away and feel the breeze on my face. It was very relaxing and fun to chat with my friends on the tree, and enjoy the nature around us. This is something that I still remember until now. Climbing trees was also a challenge for me, because sometimes I would try to reach higher branches or jump from one branch to another. It was exciting and thrilling to test my skills and courage. I felt a sense of achievement when I climbed higher than before or did something new. It also helped me to develop my physical strength and balance. So climbing trees was an activity that I enjoyed doing in my free time when I was younger because it was fun, adventurous and rewarding.

I went to a cybercafe near our school last week. My roommate and I planned to play some online games all night long. We both love playing games because they are fun and exciting, and we can make some new friends online. But as soon as we entered the cybercafe, we smelled a strong odor of cigarette smoke. It was very unpleasant and disgusting, and it made our eyes water and our throats sore. We walked to our reserved room, but it was no better. The room was closed because it had air conditioning, but that also meant that the smoke couldn’t escape. The room was filled with thick smoke, and we could barely see the screens of the computers. My roommate and I couldn’t stand such an environment. We tried to open the windows, but they were locked. We asked the staff to change our room, but they said they were fully booked. We felt very frustrated and angry. We only stayed for about 15 minutes, then we decided to leave. We paid for our time, but we felt like we wasted our money. We went to a nearby park instead and breathed some fresh air. We felt much better, but we also felt disappointed that we couldn’t enjoy our games. Since then, I have never gone back to that cybercafe. I think the air quality there is very poor, and it affects people’s mood and health. I feel depressed and sick when I breathe dirty air, and I think it can also cause some serious diseases like asthma or cancer. I prefer to play games at home or at a friend’s place, where the air is clean and comfortable.

I remember mentioning my desire for this album to my partner once before my birthday, but I never expected that she would remember and actually get it for me. When I unwrapped my gift and saw the album, I was overjoyed. It was a moment of pure happiness and surprise. I felt incredibly loved and cherished, knowing that my partner had listened to my wishes and made such an effort to make my birthday special. It was more than just a gift; it was a testament to the deep understanding and love in our relationship.

One day I was having lunch at McDonald's, and I noticed that the chicken in my burger was not fully cooked and tasted fishy(腥臭的). Then I approached the manager of the restaurant and complained to him about the food. I told him that according to our national food safety law, he would have to pay me ten times the original price or 1,000 yuan outright(一次付清地). I was expecting a heated(激烈的) argument with him because of the stringent requirements of the law. To my surprise, he didn't show any displeasure and said he was sorry for his dereliction of duty. After a while, he gave me adequate compensation as required by law and served me a new meal. His attitude and approach made me comfortable and I was satisfied with the result. After the meal I posted my praise of the restaurant online and I wished everyone in the catering industry could have such competence as well as work ethic(道德,准则).

One actor who I truly admire for his portrayal of a particular character in a movie is Tom Holland. I first saw him in action while watching the "Spider-Man" series a couple of years ago. His portrayal of the character, Spider-Man, genuinely moved with me and has left an incredible impression.

In the narrative, Spider-Man, or Peter Parker, is an ordinary high school student who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, acquires superhuman abilities. Despite facing numerous adversities, he consistently utilizes these powers to help others and combat evil forces, which is deeply inspiring. What I particularly admire about Holland's portrayal of Spider-Man is his ability to bring authenticity to the role. Whether it's in the midst of a thrilling action sequence or a quieter, emotional moment, he consistently brings depth and relatability to the character. His performance feels genuine, making it easy for the audience to connect with Spider-Man and root for him. It's his dedication to and execution of the role that make me admire him for playing this character in the Spider-Man films. He truly brings Spider-Man to life and does justice to this character.

It was the world’s first Marxist-Communist state and one of the superpowers during the Cold War1. I first became interested in this period in history when I was in high school.

- This can help them develop decision-making skills and become more independent.
- Of course, parents should still provide guidance and support during this process.”
- 6.Do you think it is good for parents to help their children choose friends?

It's part of a couple's set, with hers being the same design but in black. I wear this t-shirt almost every day, regardless of the occasion. It's incredibly versatile and can be paired with almost anything in my wardrobe, from jeans to shorts, making it suitable for both casual and formal settings. The fabric is soft and comfortable, making it perfect for the varying weather conditions in my city. The t-shirt is quite simple in design, but that's what I love about it. It's white, which is a color that I find very easy to match with other clothing items. The fit is just right, not too tight and not too loose, which makes me feel confident when I wear it. But what makes this t-shirt truly special to me is the sentimental value it holds. Every time I wear it, I'm reminded of my girlfriend. It's like a symbol of our connection and shared experiences. We often wear our matching t-shirts when we go out together, and it feels like a unique way of expressing our bond. Moreover, the fact that it's a gift from someone I deeply care about adds an extra layer of significance. It's not just a piece of clothing, but a token of love and affection. It's a constant reminder of the love and care we share, which makes me enjoy wearing it even more.

So my plan is Maybe next year I'd really like to spend some time with my friends in an island city I'd like to go on vacation and spend two or three weeks at the beach And also really want to learn this sport because it is said that if you get a scuba diving certificate then you can enjoy it or do this activity on your own without being watched That's right.

I think one of the important decisions I made was that a year ago I decided to get up every morning and drink a cup of hot water This routine began one evening as I was browsing through my phone, and I saw a news article. It detailed the numerous health benefits of drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning. The article highlighted that this simple act aids in flushing out toxins from the body and promoting overall health. Inspired by the potential benefits, I decided to incorporate this into my daily routine in pursuit of becoming a healthier individual. Each morning, after I get out of bed, I make my way to the living room. then draw a glass of warm water from the dispenser. I think this decision is important because it has made a big difference to me Over the past year, I've noticed several improvements in my physical health. For instance, my weight has gradually decreased, which was an unexpected yet pleasant side effect. This change has also remarkably improved my endurance. Running, which used to be a tedious task, is now less strenuous for me, and I find myself enjoying it more than I used to. Perhaps one of the most significant improvements I've noticed is in my sleep quality. I've been sleeping much better, waking up feeling refreshed and ready to face the day. These changes have taught me that maintaining a good habit is really important, and I think it was the right decision and I'm grateful that I stuck with it I will stick to more good habits like this in the future

The expensive gift I have in mind is an album 'The Dark Side of the Moon' by Pink Floyd. The individual I'm planning to present this to is my girlfriend. This album is renowned worldwide and is considered one of the greatest albums in the history of rock music. It's a masterpiece that I had been yearning to own. As a student, managing finances can be quite a challenge. My monthly allowance amounts to 2000 RMB, out of which I manage to save approximately 200 RMB. Since the album costs around 500 RMB, it would take me about three months to accumulate enough savings to afford it. Although it might seem like a substantial amount of money for a student like me, I am willing to invest the time and effort because I believe in the significance of the gesture. I had been a fan of Pink Floyd for two years by then, and this album was the one I admired the most She has been desiring this perfume for a long time, and I think it would make a delightful surprise. I imagine the joy and surprise on her face when she unwraps the gift, only to find the perfume she's always wanted. It would undoubtedly make our milestone even more memorable. Despite the expense, I believe that this gift will convey my feelings in a way that words may not be able to, making our anniversary all the more significant. It's not merely the price tag that makes the gift expensive, but the sentiment and sacrifice that goes along with it. Therefore, I think it's a gift worth saving for.

The sports program not only feeds my fascination for skiing but also allows me to dream of a white, snowy adventure I hope to embark on someday. The sports program I am most fond of is about skiing. Skiing is a thrilling and graceful sport. The first time I watched a skiing event was during the Winter Olympics, and it was a truly awe-inspiring experience. I was captivated by the agility, precision, and balance exhibited by the athletes. They danced on snow with such finesse that it seemed like a perfect symphony between man and nature. Typically, I watch these skiing programs with my girlfriend as we live together. We enjoy discussing the performances, the athletes' techniques, and even the stunning venues. It brings us closer as a couple, and I cherish these moments greatly. One of the reasons I'm so drawn to skiing is because it's a sport I don't have much personal experience with, living in a region that is warm throughout the year. Seeing the snow, and the exhilarating sport performed on it, offers a refreshing change from my usual environment. I also find the program appealing because it stimulates my sense of adventure. Watching the athletes fearlessly conquer the slopes with impressive stunts and high speeds evokes a sense of thrill and admiration. It's almost like I can feel the wind rushing past despite just being a spectator.

One of the traditional celebrations that I greatly enjoy in my country is the Spring Festival, more commonly known globally as Chinese New Year. This annual event holds a special place in my heart primarily because it is a celebration centered around family reunion. Every year, I celebrate this festival with my parents.During the Spring Festival, my parents would prepare a feast that features a variety of my favorite dishes like fish, rabbit, and chicken. These delicacies are more than just delicious food - they're symbol of our culture and traditions. The fish, for instance, symbolizes abundance. Another key aspect of our celebration is watching the Spring Festival Gala, also known as Chunwan, during our festive dinner. This variety show has been a staple part of the Chinese New Year celebrations since it was first aired, with performances ranging from comedy sketches, music, dance, acrobatics to magic acts. But perhaps, one of the most exciting parts of the festival for me, as with most children and young people, is receiving red envelopes, or "hongbao", from relatives. These envelopes, traditionally filled with money, are given as a symbol of good luck and blessings. Nowadays, the transition to digital platforms has made this tradition even more convenient, as relatives can transfer money digitally via apps like WeChat. What makes this traditional celebration particularly enjoyable for me is the precious family time it offers. It provides an opportunity for me to connect with my family, to share laughter and create beautiful memories. Moreover, the Spring Festival, marking the start of a new lunar year, signifies new beginnings. All these factors make the Spring Festival a celebration that I cherish and look forward to each year.

You should say:
Why you read this book
What this book was about
Whether you learnt anything from it
And explain why you have read this book more than once.
One book that I have read more than once, and has had quite an impact on me, is "The Little Prince". The initial motivation for picking up this book was rather simple - it was a favorite of my girlfriend, and I was intrigued to understand what fascinated her about it. However, as I delved into its pages, I quickly realized that its appeal lies in its simplicity, depth, and timeless lessons. "The Little Prince" is a novel that uses the lens of a young prince from another planet to critique and shed light on the peculiarities of adult behavior. The story unravels as the prince encounters different characters, each embodying different aspects of human nature. While the narrative is childlike, it is full with profound insights into life and relationships. One of the most significant lessons I learned from this book is about love and responsibility. The book beautifully encapsulates this concept through the prince's relationship with a rose on his planet. The Little Prince's commitment to the rose, despite its flaws, taught me that to love someone is to take responsibility for them, to care for them, and to accept them wholeheartedly, including their imperfections. In essence, "The Little Prince" is a book that I consider more than just a story. It's a philosophical journey that offers rich food for thought, and it's one of those rare books that remains relevant irrespective of the reader's age. This timeless appeal, coupled with its valuable life lessons, is why I find myself returning to "The Little Prince" time and again.

so speaking of this occasion, I really could think of one situation that l spent almost like a a day whole day with one of my father's friends child. he was a young boy at that time and l was just a middle school student .l guess he just entered his primary school um so he was quite a naughty one as well.since l am the only child in the family,um so l didn't have any you know experience of taking care of another younger brother or sister in my life. so at first I tried to treat him as like my friend and i tried to talk and chat with him, but his attention was all on my pet cat.when it comes to my cat l could be very overprotective,so when he started to chase after my cat and they were just running and yelling around my home, i was so desperate. l tried literally every ways to attract his attention, and eventually he got quite interested in my barbie dolls .at that time l thought it was a good thing,because he finally could let go of my cat, but he played my barbie dolls in a way that l never tried before ..um it it goes like you know he tried to take off their dresses and started to twist their neck.and he even attempted to let two of the barbie dolls fight with each other. um maybe because he's a little guy,so he just play my barbie dolls in a way that he might play you know with his own other dinosaurs.so it was quite an aggressive and violent way,but l couldn't say anything because you knov it's better than him torturing my cat Overall, it was a very interesting experience, and it taught me how to get along with and take care of children in the future. so yeah that's an experience l had with a child

Describe a movie you watched recently that you felt disappointed about
You should say:
When it was
What it was about
Why you decided to watch it
And explain why you felt disappointed about it
A movie that I recently watched and was rather disappointed with is "Blue Is the Warmest Colour". It was a couple of weeks ago, on a quiet evening at home with my girlfriend. We decided to have a movie night, and I suggested this particular film. "Blue Is the Warmest Colour" is a film that mainly revolves around a lesbian relationship. It's a coming-of-age narrative that explores the intense romantic relationship between a high school student named Adele and a blue-haired art student named Emma. The movie is known for its explicit scenes and its focus on the emotional and sexual aspects of the characters' relationship. The reason I decided to watch it was due to its critical acclaim, as it had won several prestigious awards. I had heard a lot about its raw and realistic portrayal of a same-sex relationship, and hence, I was intrigued to see it for myself. However, despite my initial enthusiasm, the movie didn't quite live up to my expectations. I found myself agreeing with my girlfriend who believed that the movie lacked a distinct theme or message. The story seemed to be primarily about narrating the life and experiences of the two main characters, without delving much into deeper societal or psychological insights. While the movie was certainly an interesting depiction of a passionate and tumultuous relationship, I felt it lacked a certain depth and context. In my opinion, the film was more about the surface-level interactions between the characters rather than the exploration of their internal struggles, growth, or the societal challenges they faced. This was why I ended up feeling somewhat disappointed with it, despite its cinematic beauty and the strong performances of the actors.

爬树，很高，枝干可以支撑 因为小时候夹里面很穷Game machine，所以我们只有Play outside the home We will compare who climbs higher in the same time, of course, under the condition of ensuring safety 挑战 Climbing trees was also a challenge for me, because sometimes I would try to reach higher branches or jump from one branch to another. It was exciting and thrilling to test my skills and courage. I felt a sense of achievement when I climbed higher than before or did something new. It also helped me to develop my physical strength and balance. No matter which one of us wins, we will be happy because we think it is not the title that matter I liked climbing trees maybe because it was something that I could do with my friends, and that made me very happy. And the view from the tree was amazing, I could see far away and feel the breeze on my face. It was very relaxing and fun to chat with my friends on the tree, and enjoy the nature around us. This is something that I still remember until now. So climbing trees was an activity that I enjoyed doing in my free time when I was younger because it was fun, adventurous and rewarding. It also gave me some good memories with my friends and nature.

课程演讲 AI，展示AI怎么简化我们现在的工作，医疗，教育，交通，研究 重要 虽然对话题热情，但是我很紧张 One memorable speech experience I had took place in the classroom setting, where I found myself presenting in front of my fellow classmates. This wasn't just a casual talk, but an important part of our coursework. The topic of my presentation was the impact of artificial intelligence on people's lives, a subject of immense relevance and intrigue in the current times. From exploring how AI simplifies our day-to-day tasks to discussing its profound influence on sectors like healthcare, education, and transportation, I tried to delve into various aspects of this groundbreaking technology. I chose this topic not only because it was required for the assignment, but also due to my personal interest in understanding the advancements in AI and its potential implications. Plus, I believed that sharing knowledge about this rapidly progressing field with my classmates would be beneficial for everyone. Despite my enthusiasm for the topic, I must admit that the whole experience was nervous. However, once I started speaking, I found myself gradually settling into a rhythm. My initial nervousness transformed into enthusiasm as I discussed various facets of AI and its transformative potential. By the time I finished, I was surprisingly relaxed and proud that I had successfully completed my presentation. Reflecting on this experience, I can say that it wasn't just about conveying information about artificial intelligence, but also a valuable lesson in overcoming public speaking fears. It reminded me that with thorough preparation and a genuine interest in the subject matter, I could handle such situations with relative ease and confidence.
