乡村的秋天 Autumn in Countryside
Autumn in Countryside
It gradually turns cool. The sunlight is no longer so strong and the
cicadas have stopped crying. The hot summer went by at last. The favorite season
in the year is coming.
Everywhere we can see the scene of bumper crops: on the fields is golden
rice,on the trees are ripe fruits. The farmers faces are full of smiles. They
are now expecting a good harvest through a summer's hard work.
The autumn evening is especially beautiful. When the setting sun goes
slowly down to the west, the sky over the mountains is covered with red rays of
evening sunlight, which shines upon the blue sky and floating clouds, just as
the maple leaves fall onto the sky.
It is getting cool at dusk. The wind blows, the moonlight shines on the
ground,the frogs croak and insects chirp in the fields. Such a situation will
make you forget all the unhappy things in the daytime.
I love the beautiful season.
Today, with the development of technology, people own all kinds of
electronic products, mobile phone is very popular, almost everyone has a mobile
phone at hand, we even can say that we can’t live without mobile phone. As the
phone has become so popular, students are also obsessed about it, high school
students use cell phone without letting teachers know it, the reason that the
teachers ban them to use mobile phone is that the phone will distract students
from study. I agree with teachers, as a student, I know exactly how the phone
affects me in the class. I always want to check my phone, seeing if there is
message. I can’t focus on my study, all my mind thinking is to check on the
phone. I am not saying we should not use mobile phone, I advise that it is
better use it when we are not studying.
For the young people, it is very important to have ambition, they need the
motivation to move on. But most of them are just talking about the ambition and
never take the action. The action is as important as the ambition. On the one
hand, ambition sets up the goal for a person to fight. Without ambition, no one
can be successful, ambition is just like the light in the dark, it leads people
to see the bright future. On the other hand, action helps people to realize
their dreams. Sometimes, action even is more important than the ambition.
Everyone has the ambition, but the action makes them different. The one who just
keeps thinking and not to take action will never be successful. As the saying
that no pain, no gain, it reminds people to take action. So we need to have both
ambition and action.
Every year hundreds of thousands of people in China take civil service
exams conducted at various levels in the hope of becoming government employees.
Among them, college
graduates are a fast-growing force that can‘t be ignored. The craze for
being a civil servant is not limited to liberal arts majors, as it‘s also
gaining popularity among science and engineering students.
In the final analysis, this growing trend among the youngsters is mainly
attributable to two factors–ambitions and comforts. On the one hand, many
ambitious college graduates view these exams as a springboard to a higher social
status, greater power and prestige, on which many of their other wishes rest. On
the other, as being a civil servant generally means a stable income, enviable
healthcare and pension programmes, as well as other comforts of life, it‘s quite
an appealing career option to many people, especially in this age of sluggish
In your spoken English class, your teacher shows you the following picture.
You are asked to describe the picture and explain how you understand it.
What an interesting picture! A western young man, sitting at a table, is
ready to eat a bowl of noodles. He is holding two forks the same way as we
Chinese hold chopsticks. He is trying so hard to pick up the noodles that he is
sweating a lot. At first glance, I think it's a bit funny, for we Chinese take
for granted that chopsticks are the tools for eating noodles. The man in the
picture is trying to copy us. Obviously he is doing it the hard way. Maybe using
one fork will do a better job, In my opinion, we don't need to copy others' ways
of thinking. Sometimes a simpler way of doing things may be a better way.
