Good afternoon, everyone! The topic of my speech today is “Being a Good Listener”. Good listening can always show respect, promote understanding, and improve interpersonal relationship. Many
people suggest that parents should listen more to their children, so they will understand them better, and find it easy to narrow the generation gap; teachers should listen more to their students, then they can meet their needs better, and place themselves in a good relationship with their students; students should listen more to their classmates, thus they will help and learn from each other, and a friendship is likely to be formed. What I want to stress is that each of us should listen more to others. Show your respect and never stop others till they finish their talk; show you are interested by a supportive silence or a knowing smile; be open-minded to different opinions even though you don’t like them. In a word, good listening can really enable us to get closer to each other. Thank you for your listening!
Dear Principal, Recently, my classmates have had a heated discussion about whether we should have optional courses in high schools. Some students are in favour of the optional courses. They say interest is the best teacher and their spare time will be colourful and meaningful. Students can not only enlarge their knowledge but also improve their abilities. However, others are against the idea, saying that optional courses will take up too much time as well as energy. Besides, some optional courses have nothing to do with the College Examination. They are afraid they’ll fall behind their classmates if they take the optional courses. I’d like to take one or two of the optional courses, which, I think, will certainly benefit me a lot. Yours truly, Li Hua One possible version: Li Lei got a new abacus from his grandpa as he was going to have his first abacus lesson that day. On the way to school, Li Lei thought it would be interesting to roll the abacus like wheels. So with a string he pulled the abacus with his school bag on it. He had great fun. When he got to school, most of the beads were gone. And Li Lei was too careless to notice that. Soon it was time to have the abacus lesson. All the other pupils were practising, but Li Lei could do nothing but sit there. When the teacher asked him what had happened to his abacus, he felt very ashamed and could say nothing.
