How to be a good learner
To be a good learner, we should have good habits and ways of learning.
We need to get ready for our lessons before class and always listen carefully in class. After class, we must go over the lessons and finish our homework on time. It’s good to study in groups and help each other. We should do more reading in our free time. If we have any problems, we’d better ask others for help. As a student, working hard is important, but don’t forget to do sports and keep healthy.
I think all above is helpful to us to be a good learner.

It’s a traditional festival in china. It comes in winter.
It’s time to get new. We usually clean and decorate our houses carefully before it comes. I always help my mother clean the windows and wash the clothes. We put on Chunlian on the doors and chuanghua on the windows.
It’s time to say goodbye to the last year, and say hello to the New Year. Everyone goes home to get together with their families, no matter how far it is. They must have dinner together on that day. They must visit their relatives and friends and say “Happy New Year” to them. When the kids greet their grandparents, they can get money.

Changes in people’s life
Great changes have taken place in people’s life in the last few years.
In the past people kept in touch with relatives or friends mainly by sending letters. They would listen to the radio for news and other information. Children used to go to school by bike. Big families had to share small rooms.
Now people can talk to others by telephone or on the internet at home. When they are free, they watch the news and other programs on TV. Some families are rich enough to send their children to school in their own cars. More and more people live in big and bright apartment with several rooms.
In a word, people live better than before.

It is said that tanghulu ever saved the life of an emperor’s wife in the Song Dynasty. It was so delicious and healthy that many Chinese people like eating it. It is now seen as the bright symbols of happiness and reunion.

Computers are becoming more and more important in our daily life. Do you know when the computer was invented?
The computer was invented in 1946. At that time, it was huge. With the development of science and technology, the computer has grown smaller. Now there are many kinds of computers, such as personal computers and laptops. The computer is a very useful tool in our life. For example, it can send some messages to foreign friends by email. What’s more, it can share information with others through the World Wide Web. We can also listen to music or play the game on computers. It makes us relax.
It’s hard to imagine what our life would be like without computers. I think computers will be more convenient and they are going to change our life completely in the near future.

There are many rules in our school.
At our school we have to wear uniforms every day. The problem is that all my classmates think the uniforms are ugly. I think young people should look smart, so I’d like to wear my own clothes. If we have to wear uniforms, we should be allowed to design our own uniforms. That would be a good way to keep both teachers and students happy.
Although we have different views on the rules, I think everyone should obey the school rules.

I’m very happy to hear that you’re coming to china next week. I hope to see you soon.
As we all know, different countries have different customs. So the manners in China are very different from those in your country. Let me tell you something about customs and manners in our country.
First, we Chinese are supposed to shake hands when we meet for the first time. Then we greet each other. After that, you can talk about something relaxing. But you are not supposed to talk about someone’s salary, age and so on. Second, we use chopsticks to have meals while you use your forks at table. Also, it’s bad manners to talk too much when you’re having meals.
I hope you’ll have a wonderful time in our country.
Unit11 Sad movies make me cry.
I still remember the bad day I have experienced clearly.
It was a Friday. I woke up late because my clock didn't go off. I felt very nervous. I might be late for school. When I got to school，the teacher was having a class. I felt afraid. As a result，the teacher punished me. I was very sad. By the time we had English class，I found I had left my English book at home. So I had to borrow one.
After lunch，I fought with my classmate because of some small things.The teacher kicked me off the classroom and sent me home. I knew I let my parents down. I also felt I wasn't a good child. I didn't feel like eating dinner and went to bed.
That night I thought about these things carefully and decided to make a change. I believed I could be a good boy soon.
Unit12 Life is full of the unexpected.
Yesterday was a really bad day for me.
To start with, my alarm clock didn’t go off so that I got up late. By the time I got up, my father had already gotten into the shower. Then I rushed to the bus stop without breakfast. By the time I got there, the bus had already left and I had to rushed to school. When I got to school, my teacher had already started teaching and he was really angry with me. Then it was time to hand in homework, but I had left it at home. I was really embarrassed at that time.
One good thing was that my history teacher said something good to me because I had done a lot to prepare for this class. It was the only good thing for me yesterday.
Unit13 We're trying to save the earth!
假如你所在的城市正在创建“国家级卫生城市”, 作为该城市的一员, 你会有许多感触和想法。请以“How to set up a national healthy city? ”为题, 根据所给提示写一篇80-100个单词的英语短文。
How to set up a national healthy city?
Our city is trying to set up a national healthy city. As a member of the city, I think we should obey the rules.
We can’t throw rubbish here and there. We can’t talk loudly in public, such as in the library or in the museum. We can’t spit and smoke in public as well. When we are on the bus, we should give our seats to the old and children, as well as some women with babies in their arms.
During our daily lives, we should be polite to others. And we should obey the traffic rules. Remember to stop when the traffic light is red. We must go across the road when the traffic light is green. Finally, we should also turn off the lights before we leave the room.
I’m sure our city will become more and more beautiful as long as we all try our best to do something for it!
Unit14 I remember meeting all of you in Grade7.
A person I will never forget
The person I will never forget is my English teacher.
He is a tall man with glasses. He likes sports and often plays football with us in his free time. He is very humorous and always makes his classes lively and interesting. He is kind but strict with us. He never allows us to make careless mistakes when we have an exam and always encourage us to study hard and be good at English. He often tells us it is useless to memorize news words without understanding.
My English has greatly improved with his help.
