How to Solve the Problem of Heavy Traffic?
Nowadays, people in many big cities are complaining about the heavy
traffic. It has seriously influenced people's daily life and economic development. To solve the problem, some pieces of advice are put forward. Some people suggest that more streets and roads should be built. In this way,
the traffic density can be redncedi hence speeding up the flow of buses and cars.But the new roads and streets will be filled with many cars and buses soon.
Some people advise to limit the number of bikes and cars. This can decrease the traffic flow. But on the other haad, this will affect the consumption and make buses more crowded.
In my opinion, the number of private cars should be put under control. And at the same time, buses should have their own special routes which cannot be used by other vehicles. Besides, underground train and city train should be developed quickly. ( 151 words)

英语作文： Youthful Times.
Time flies when we are having fun is an old expression. We know, as we reminisce of our past, time flies regardless.
As we grow beyond our teenage. We remember the times of fun we had when we were young, when we were in primary school. We had little concern, little responsibilities. We all remember chasing our friends in catch, sneaking around in hide-and-seek and the fun in the playground.
As we grow with time, our lives become filled with stress and worries. It is in these times we remember what we had, what we took for granted. As we do so, we look forward to what we can achieve and what we will see of ourselves years down the tracks.
Plugging Ones Ears While Stealing a Bell-掩耳盗铃
In the ancient time, Fan's family was destroyed by others. So a man went to Fan's house and tried to steal something. He saw a big bell in the courtyard. The bell was so beautiful. He liked it very much, and he wanted to get it. Because the bell was too big and heavy, he could not move it. He thought there was only one way to solve the problem. He had to break the bell into pieces.
The thief found a big hammer, and he struck the bell. It produced very loud sound. The sound made the thief felt frightened. The thief thought it was too bad. Others would know that he was stealing the bell. He tried to stop the sound with his arms. But it was useless. He felt more and more frightened and covered his ears firmly hard with his hands. The sound became much lower. He immediately got some odd bits of cloth, and had his ears plugged with the two cloth rolls. He thought that in this way nobody could hear the sound of the bell. So he struck the bell again. The sound was louder. Many people heard it, and the thief was caught as a result checked.
The Lost Sword-
A man was crossing the river when he accidentally dropped his sword into the river. Immediately he made a mark on the boat where the sword had fallen. "This is where my sword fell off, I shall find my sword by this mark." he said.
When the boat stopped moving, he went into the water to look for his sword at the place where he had marked the boat. Needless to say, it was useless. The boat had moved but the sword had not. He was unable to find the lost sword.
Covering the ears to steal the bell
Once upon a time there was a stupid man. His neighbor bought a nice bell. The stupid man liked it very much and wanted to steal it. One silent night, he went to his neighbor’s house. He tried to get the bell off. But the bell rang the moment he touched it. He was afraid that someone would hear it. So he covered his ears and got the bell down. When he was complacent about his cleverness, a lot of people came to the gate and caught him.
How to face emotins
The biggest difference between animals and human is that human can think. So we have emotions.
Love,hatred and grief are emotions.I was an emotional boy since I was young.I love to watch the dark sky,the moon and the stars.They always make me think about the future and beautiful dreams.Thinking about emotions let me not only feel the happiness,but also the pains. So I like emotions.
I’m not very patient with my parents at home, sometimes even be stubborn. As I’m growing up, we are becoming more and more misunderstanding. I don’t know how to face their love.
Also I’m a little timid. I don’t like to talk with others long before. Maybe I worked so hard in study that I had little time to have such a kind of emotion called friendship, whether at school or in the society.
The relationship and emotions between boys and girls is unclear. We are told to be careful of this. So a girl seldom talks to a boy at school. I had the same situation in Junior Grade 1.But after one year’s time, we knew each other better and talked more. Then I found that everyone in my class had a kind heart and was friendly to others. When I was in Grade Three, a nice girl suddenly appeared in my mind .Then I had a nicer and nicer expression of her. As everyone thought, I fell in love with her. Maybe this is really a special kind of emotion, it makes the distance between us much longer and this feeling lasts now. I even don’t know how I love her, or I don’t love her at all. But I know I can’t forget her. Now she’s in No.2 Middle School .I really don’t know how to deal with the emotion….
Then how to deal with those emotions?
As an emotional boy, I’ve thought of this for quite a long time .And I have found these ideas:
The first one, just be silent and away from others. Though this sounds terrible, it’s really a good way to study better. But nobody can live in the world all by himself. We should get to know others. I can’t imagine what I’ll be like if I keep silent.
The second one, to help them when they’re in trouble and then get to know them better maybe is really a nice way. Everyone needs help and love. I think helping others means a lot.Gradually, I had a great and nice dream: make everyone happy. This helps me much.
We are living to learn and know. We shall work hard only to solve several emotions.
I have a third idea. I think it’s the best one. To face emotions, just to accept them and get help from them.
Maybe large numbers of students aren’t interested in studying because children are always fond of playing. So we should have a goal and a kind of power for studying: for success, for living better, for being happier, for whom we love and who love us or….Many goals can be our power. But there are still a few goals that can’t be ,such as for playing games, for being commanding and defiant to others, for puppy love and so on. If we have a nice and proper goal—a kind of power, we’ll have enthusiasm to do things. Then we’ll do things more excellently.
So face emotions, just try to feel and use them!
I did believe the snow was not a scene but a great wonder. It brought me much more than it had.
What a big snow I have never seen! What a beautiful snow I have never enjoy.
When I went out for school from home, I was doomed to get a wonder. Everything seemed unlucky to me. I left the umbrella at home; I couldn’t unlock my bike and a big truck held up the traffic, which took me above 5 minutes to pass the road. At last I met Charlie and we were both late for the maths class. If it happened the day before, we would go to our seats without saying anything. But today we were forced to stand outside in the cold wind because of the head teacher’s bad mood. I didn’t want to say anything. It was useless. So I began to stand with Charlie.
After a short while, we both felt so cold that we couldn’t speak a word. The world seemed very quiet. I suddenly found there was a lot of thin ice dropping from the sky. “Ice!” I shouted to Charlie who soon became excited the same as me. We expected for the snow but nothing happened.
After class, the head teacher didn’t seem to let us in. We had to stand outside for at least one more class. When the bell rang he went to teach in Class 19.
If you asked me whether I had seen a big snow before that day, I would tell you I couldn’t remember. But during that period I got the answer.
The ice turned white and turned to snow quietly. We were immersed in it without any word. From little to big, the snow changed out of my imagination. With the wind blowing heavily, the snow beat on my face, hair and covered all over my body. We couldn’t help shaking in the snow. We opened our mouths to taste the icy snow, stood still in the snow, and enjoyed the wonderful scene ourselves.
I did believe the snow was not only a scene but a great wonder as well. It bought me much more than it had.
It was too great and too beautiful that I couldn’t imagine. How fantastic it was! With the snow dropping on my body, I didn’t want to move though it was so cold.
If you lived in the north, you might think it was nothing. But the following thing was more unreal. A bird, a beautiful parrot, like an angel, flew from the sky onto Charlie’s shoulder and then flew to my shoulder. I didn’t know how to express my feelings, only enjoying it. The parrot didn’t seem to leave. How fantastic, I thought.
The snow became smaller and smaller after class. Maybe we lost something, but we got something, too. I didn’t know what it meant. I only wished to believe it would bring me good luck.
I would never forget that day.
Everybody Listen To Me
When you see a child fall into a river, but you can’t swim, you rush out and go into a noisy place, you want to tell somebody what has happened, but nobody listens to you. What will you do? Wait for the child’s death and say nothing more because you are too shy? No, you must cry out: “Everybody listen to me!”
So, confidence and courage can save one life or more than one even a lot of persons’ happiness. You mustn’t just wait and say nothing, for fear that nobody hears you. Because they think you have no serious things and mind their own business that is more important than yours in their opinion. At this moment, you must think nothing but cry out, and somebody will know what has happened.
Not only when you meet some dangerous things but also you want to let everyone know your advantages, you must cry out: “Everybody listen to me!” too. In that case, somebody will pay attention to you. You will shine sooner because of your courage.
Friends Or Teachers?
There is an old Chinese saying: Top students come from strict teachers. Perhaps affected by this saying for a long time, we believe it right. However, as time flies, lots of things have changed. Therefore, I am eager to discuss what relation is the best between teachers and students.
A teacher can treat a student in two ways .One is strict, and the other is friendly. Most teachers prefer the first way.
To start with, we certainly have to admit that strictness is very effective, especially to the naughty pupils. As pupils we aren’t able to control ourselves well or fix our attention on one thing for a long time. We do most things because they are interesting or we feel like doing. We are always looking out of the window in class. Sometimes, we get to play games and forget our homework. On this occasion, strictness is a must. It not only forces us to do the right thing, but also helps us develop a good learning habit, which is of great importance during our whole life .In other words, it is the first step to success.
Still, everything has two sides. Its weak points are very obvious. You see, there’re top students in a class, where average students make up the majority. Then teachers’ orders or suggestions are for the majority, not for top students. However, top students always have their own study plans and prefer special homework, so orders usually won’t take great effect on them. Maybe you have thought out that teachers can give orders only to the majority and set some freedom to top students. However, it’s impossible .For a whole class, teachers couldn’t give order to part of the class, for the majority would question why they needn’t do such work, but we need? It would be probable that they think teachers treat them not equally, and will not obey teachers’ orders any more. This is a difficulty for teachers.
It also has another disadvantage——the communication problem .Since teachers are strict, we never tell teachers our personal affairs or secrets. Mostly we just tell them to our friends, but as students too, they couldn’t help to solve our problem, such as puppy love, communication problems or study problems .Not being solved completely, they always disturb us, influencing our daily life and study. I’m sure that you think that making friends with teachers can solve the problem, and you are eager to do so as well. But if we do so, new problems will come out .You see, an adult couldn't control himself well at times, let alone us students. However if teachers are our friends, I doubt whether their orders will take effect any more .You see, have we ever treated our friends’ orders as orders? We think they’re only jokes. This is another difficulty for teachers.
Additionally, our parents have the same problem. Yes, we need to be friends, but not complete friends. We need to keep a certain distance, making us communicate well and willing to take your orders. I remember a story.
One day, a lady had her rest room decorated. And a skilled worker was bricking up the wall. Seeing large cracks between the bricks, she questioned why. The worker told her after this summer, the bricks would become bigger, and those cracks would disappear.
That is not only decoration, but also communication. The principle is the same.
Waste-Resource At A Wrong Place
Every day, people have lots of waste to throw away. Such as used handkerchiefs, plastic bags, boxes, bottles and so on. I cannot imagine how much waste is thrown away every day all over the world.
There are 4 sorts of waste. They are material waste, organic waste, inorganic waste and poisonous & harmful waste.
Material waste can be recycled and reused. Such as metal, paper, glass, plastics and rubber. Old papers can be recycled. The ink is taken out by a special technique and new paper is made. Empty glass bottles are collected and the glass is broken and reused for new bottles.
Organic waste is from all living things and kitchens, such as leftover food, unfresh vegetables and so on. They can be reused as well. They can make crops grow better. And this kind of crops is called “green crops”. They are safe to eat and are considered as “healthy food”.
Inorganic waste such as building waste, broken pottery and china and cinder cannot be reused. But this kind of waste is becoming more and more day by day. So if they are not treated correctly, they will cause serious problems.
The last is poisonous & harmful waste. Batteries, medical waste, electrical waste and old electrical apparatus all belong to poisonous and harmful waste. They are dangerous to us. Some dangerous waste can be put into metal containers and thrown into the deep sea. It will be many years before the chemicals start to escape from the containers. At the bottom of the ocean there is very little life and movement of water. All radioactive waste must be stored on land.
That’s to say, if waste is collected, sorted, recycled and reused, it will save a lot of natural resources and energy. Waste is a resource at a wrong place, depending on how people treat it.
As for me, I’ll do whatever I can to help. First, I’ll throw away waste at the right place. Second, I’ll use materials that may be recycled and refuse to use materials causing “white pollution”. Third, I’ll sell the old papers and glass bottles to the Recycle Station. If everyone gives a hand, waste will be resources at the right place!
Hand in hand, let’s build a beautiful planet!
About friends and value of time
I think everyone needs friends. A friend is just like a soft wind, or rather a beautiful beam of sunshine. To be exact, he can give you many things you want. When you are happy, you can share your happiness with your friends; when you are not happy, your friends will also can to help you.
Your friends may be of many different kinds. Some of them may play happily with you; some others may have a pleasant talk to you, and of course you may talk to some of them hear to hear. We can’t say which kind of friends we need most, as each kind is necessary.
Once I got an old saying which goes like this: “Friends are thieves of time”. I wondered. I couldn’t understand it exactly, as I thought it was a joke that friends had something to do with thieves. Then I asked my foreign teacher about it. She told me that was because someone thought everyone work most of the time, and friends might take up your time, so they were thieves of your time. I thought it was funny. I even wanted to ask them, “Don’t you think you are happy when you are staying with your friends? Isn’t happiness an important thing?”
If one lives without friends, I can’t imagine his life in the world. And if one has good friends, even only one, I think he may be the luckiest one in the world. (244 words)
THE VALUE OF TIME
I always think there is not enough time. For example, I have just taken a three-day holiday. But when I look back, I just feel that it’s only one day. There goes a proverb, “Time is money”. Now I want to say, time is more precious than money, because when money is spent, we can earn some more again. However, when time is gone or lost, never will it return.
Time goes without being noticed. The time for our study and work is usually limited. So I think we must make full use of our time. But it’s a pity that I am always not aware of the importance of time until it’s too late.
So I think, I should get into the good habit of saving time because wasting time is equal to wasting one’s life. Do not put off what can be done today till tomorrow! (148 words
I have no dream because I dreamed last night.—Author
Everybody has a dream. They hope that enemy become friends. So we hope the Japanese become our friends after the end of World War II, but now the enemy get back.
An island with no person living on named Fishing Island in East Sea of China, which is part of our holy homeland, now is in the control of the Japanese navy. Some people who love our motherland sailed to the island but were struck by the Japanese navy. Some of them got caught, and the Japanese navy refused to send them back to China at once! It seemed that the people who sailed to Fishing Island were against the Japanese navy and got into the Japanese territorial sea.
This hurt everybody in China. They talked on net, and said that the enemy had got back. Nearly everyone claimed that why not do something for our island and our country-mates?
Now a Japanese law says that Japan should exploit petrol in South Sea of Japan. Certainly it is none of our business, but look out, the South Sea of Japan is the East Sea of China, and the petrol is all around the Fishing Island. It means that a foreign country wanted to exploit petrol in our territorial sea, but our government did nothing about it except for some announcements.
So, rise up, our country-mates, our dream was up last night; we must be strong and powerful, or, the enemy will be really back!
As one of the most special groups in the society, disabled people’s living conditions—not only their material conditions, but their mental world as well, really need more help and improvement. In our China, disabled people take up 5% of the whole population, and their problems will surely cause social problems.
Fortunately, our government does well in helping and supporting disabled people. They offer jobs for them, give them training and teach the whole society not to discriminate but give them more care. Chairman Deng of China Disabled People Association recently received a Nobel Prize for Peace, which is a good evidence for government’s effort.
But it seems that the society does not quite agree with our government—at least the majority people don’t. They don’t discriminate them but don’t think them to have enough ability to do things, either. They even sometimes help disabled people when they are in the mood. But the emotion in their act is not the love between equal people but the sympathy from upper people to lower people. Though they heard about Helen Keller and Stephen Hawking, they still thought they were superior to disabled people in all aspects. So if the government can change these people’s mind, the living conditions of disabled people will be greatly improved, for some jobs, such as engineers, lawyers, etc. which need more movement in mentality rather than physiology can be given to disabled people who are capable of doing that job.
But unfair treatment isn’t the only problem disabled people are facing. Some disabled people who live in countryside or mountain districts have worse living conditions and need more help. Some workers who became disabled when working can’t get proper treatment or compensation, especially in the building field. It’s becoming a really good social problem. And also, some other problems may influence disabled people’s lives.
Solving these problems needs efforts—not only the government’s, also ours. As a song sings, “If everyone of us gives a little love, the world will become a beautiful wonderland!”
How To Treat Disabled People
Have you been asked for money by some beggars who have disabilities while you’re enjoying shopping? Do you have any pity for that kind of people or just feel afraid? For whatever reasons, the number of disabled beggars bumming along the street is rapidly increased.
Why there are so many disabled people begging in the street? The reasons are so various that we don’t need to understand. But at least, we know that they do not lead an easy life. So we should help them in some ways.
The treatment for disabled people should go like this: First, accept them. Don’t be afraid of looking at the terrible shape of the disabled. Try to treat them equally. Because they are a part of the society, we can’t discard them. The second is to help them as much as we could. If you can be a volunteer and do some work for the disabled people, that would be very nice. That does good not only to the disabled people but also to yourself. Because you will feel good after your kind action.
So give an air of warmth to disabled people, and the world would be much better.
Nowadays, many people have the wrong attitude towards people with disabilities. They think disabled people are stupid and cannot achieve success. In my opinion, the reason why people have such a wrong idea dates from the ancient China. In the ancient times, people who can achieve success were always strong and powerful. However, as a matter of fact, history is full of examples of successful people with disabilities.
For example, Beethoven, who lost his hearing, was one of the greatest musicians in the 19th century. He expressed the spirit of his time in his music. His music was very active, passionate and vigorous. Some of his works praised heroism, some praised the love for nature and some the peace among people. These were all his outstanding success. Also, there are many other disabled people who made great success. I think the reason is in the saying that “Where there is a will, there is a way.”
From all we have discussed we now can come to the conclusion that health is not necessarily a sign of success. It all depends on the nature of success itself and on the strong will which people have.
A Review on A Tale of Two Cities
The tale is mainly about the revolution in France, though the author wrote quite a lot about the love triangle between Lucie, Charles and Sydney. But I thought Dickens mainly wanted to tell us the society problem and the background at that time.
In this novel, Dickens wrote some lively images like Sydney and those crazy revolutionaries. In this tale, we can’t see any absolute roles. Charles, though he was a brave and good man, obviously he hasn’t as much ability as Sydney. Sydney, a typical tragic man in novels, a man like him, usually has great ability—if he wants to do something, nobody can prevent him. But he usually has some weak points on characters and the most important thing is that he always loves a woman he shouldn’t love and 99.99% die for her at last in an extremely heroic or tragic way. The revolutionaries in the tale is not as full of justice and poor as usual. They got mad when they can get revenge for their unfair treatment. The fire of hatred burnt everything. When they were at the bottom of the society, they were calling for justice, for fair treatment, for freedom, but when they were in charge of the society, their world is up-side-down, so it their judgment of the society. They hate everything that connected to the very people who were against them, even including Charles’ wife, Dr Manette’s daughter. So these men are no difference than those former governors at heart.
Though Dickens told us how the authority is recycling over and over again in some way, the novel is about something good. Love from Sydney to Lucie is one of the only few bright points in the novel and it’s really great. A man can sacrifice his life to save his lover’s husband. He does not have any personal purpose and just for his lover’s happiness. So Dickens may imply us, only love can solve the problems between people, between the poor and the rich, love is everything.
On computers (II)
I’m writing to tell you how us use computers in our daily lives.
Most of us use computers to search for more information about the interesting problems on the textbooks, about Iraqi wars and about Oscar. Some of us use computers to do some drawings, to make up interesting flashes. And some of us use them to play games. If we are tired and want to take a short rest, playing games for a while is OK. But it’s forbidden that we spend hours and hours on the games. There is also someone using computers to talk with people in the Internet and even falling in love with him or her. The Internet is not a real world and we can’t tell lies from truths. So falling in love with somebody on the Internet is not safe and is bad for our study. We should keep ourselves out of it.
That’s all I know.
On computers---Composition from mid-term exams
I’m writing to tell you how we students use computers in our daily lives. Some use it in a good way, while some others don’t.
So far as I am concerned, more and more students now use computers to help with their study. If they meet some difficulties when they are doing their homework, they always get help from the Internet. To spend their spare time, they look for more information with the computers to have a better knowledge.
At the same time, however, a great number of students are still so interested in PC games and chatting with others on the Internet that they can’t force themselves to return to their study. They are really in danger.
That’s how we mainly use computers. It can either do good or harm to us.
WEALTH AND HAPPINESS
There is no same opinion among people as to the view of wealth. Some people may think that wealth is the most important and powerful thing in life, while some other people believe that there are many things that cannot be bought with wealth.
As far as I am concerned, I agree with the latter opinion. There’s an old proverb, “Money can cure hunger, but it can’t cure happiness” which simply means wealth can buy us some material things but cannot make us happy and free from sadness or worries. In fact, happiness, true love, friendship, time, health and so on are the most valuable things in the world and can never ever be bought with money. Those who just try their best to make money can’t realize the true meaning of life and will be the slaves for money. They can’t enjoy happiness, for they have lost everything, time, relatives, love except money. Then, what can money do? No one will share the happy moment with them.
So, I think, money is not at all powerful while happiness is more important. If we always have happiness, we’ll never give up the belief to life.
