When it comes to our hometowns, we always have too much to talk about in virtue of the pride in our hometowns. I, without exception, am proud of my hometown.
Shanghai, where I was born, is one of the most dynamic metropolises in Chine of much vitality. It is a commerce-oriented city that new developments pop up like mushrooms. Located on the middle part of East China, Shanghai is a gateway to the Yangtze River Delta and a center for international exchange.
Shanghai is a necessity on any agenda during a tour of China on account that when walking along the Shanghai Nanjing Road, one of the most prestigious streets in China, people are able to indulge themselves in the unique Shanghai culture, a combination of Chinese and Western elements.
The Bund, which is honored of the International Architecture Exposition, is a necessity for tourist in Shanghai. Facing The Bund across the Huangpu River, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, as a token of Shanghai, is the highest piece of architecture in Shanghai.
However, the European-style skyscrapers are not the only feature Shanghai presenting.
Among the numerous Town God's Temple, Shanghai Chenghuang City Temple, with its long history and magnificent architecture, has a good reputation both at home and abroad.
Located in Huangpu District, Yu Garden shows the architectural style of the classic garden in China, which was once a private garden in the Ming Dynasty.
Shanghai has more than 150 so-called science education bases around the city including museums, parks and activity centers. Many of the venues are free although some charges an inexpensive entry fee. Here are 10 museums with unique features. They combine knowledge with fun activities to enhance the learning experience.
Annually held in June, Shanghai International Film Festival is the world's most eye-catching festival for movie fans all over the world. As a movie fanatic, I never miss the chance of enjoying the movies of various cultures. With the booming film market in Shanghai, S. I. F. F has become a symbol of culture life in Shanghai.
What's more, as Shanghai Disneyland is set to open in 2015 and a high-end duty-free center opens around the same time in Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone, so is the free trade zone in line with the local government's call for a transformation of economic development, which will focus more on boosting domestic consumption.
Without dispute, Shanghai anticipates to catering to the interests of people across the world. Diverse cultures coexist in this magic land. Hence, it will be a melting pot like America. Shanghai whose vigor, diversification and modernization will eternally branded in my memory lives within my heart.
Everybody has his or her own dream. Without a dream, people would feel void, lose the motivation of fighting, and be obsolete little by little. Some people want to be milliners while others want to be scientists, doctors, and teachers. For me, I have different dreams at the different stages of my life.
When I was a child, I want to have lot of money, because I want to have many toys. If I have a lot of money, I can buy the factory which makes toys then I can have enough toys to play.
However, my dream changed as I growing up. At the stages of senior school and middle school, I hope I can have enough time to play but not to do so much homework. At these two stages, I was compelled to stay at classroom for most of my days; what’s more, I have to do a mass of homework after school. So at that time, I thirst for freedom.
For the present stage, I hope I can improve my English level and pass the CET6. English is always the inferior subject during my college. Now as a graduate student, I hope I can learn English well with the help of my teacher. Please wish my dream come true!
How Will Our Life Go on without Internet?
If asked whether the Internet is the greatest discovery of the 20th century, my answer would be yes. The Internet has drawn the world closer together, realized countless incredible dreams, and provided modern people with a great many conveniences and a brilliant life.
Today, many people simply feel they cannot live without the Internet. Governments publish their latest policies and decisions online for worldwide recognition. Political campaigns are often done online to gain wider public support. Companies and enterprises resort to the Internet for more business opportunities and potential customers home and abroad. Universities and researchers turn to the Internet if they’d seek international cooperation or funding. Common folks like us also rely on the cyber world in various ways, for communication, entertainment, banking and shopping.
True, the power of the Internet is all pervasive and its many negative effects are already visible. For example, Internet addicts tend to withdraw to their own fantasy world rather than communicate with a real person. Children are exposed to online pornography and violence. Internet frauds are an everyday occurrence. In view of all this, you are advised to use the Internet with wisdom. Keep it at a safe distance and never lose yourself.
As is clearly depicted in the above picture, a daughter tells his mother a piece of good news that she has been admitted to a university as her mother desires. There is no denial in saying that the cartoon leaves us such a deep impression that we cannot help thinking over a question: What role should parents play in their children’s growth?
From my point of view, during the process of a child’s growth, the role of parents is mainly listed as the following two aspects. On one hand, there is no doubt that parents are liable to take good care of their children. On the other hand, in children’s personal growth, parents ought to play a role as a person who helps children develop self-dependence, which carries more significant to children’s future life. In other words, parents should encourage their sons or daughters to be independent rather than reliant on others.
To conclude, in children’s personal growth, parents are responsible to care for their children. However, considering that they will grow up and live their own life in some day, parents should enable their children to acquire the ability to be self-independent.
Go to school, the right choice
As is vividly depicted in the cartoon given above, we can observe that a son, holding a smart phone, says to his mom, “why am I going to school if my phone already knows everything?” there is no doubt that the picture strongly reflects that phenomenon that more and more students object the idea of going to school when they have a phone, which can help them know everything. However, it is by no means a sensible idea.
It is generally acknowledged that going to school is not outdated. Whereas, it will remain as vital as it used to be. To begin with, going to school makes it possible to study with classmates and make progress together. As the old saying goes, “many hands make light work.” If students can study together, they can arouse the interest and cooperate with each other, thus making study more easy and enjoyable. What’s more, going to school means the face-to-face communication. It goes without saying that this way is more direct and effective, where we can raise questions and solve all the questions on spot. Last but not least, mobile phones cannot replace school. When using mobile phones. There are more chances for students to distract their attention. In addition, they may easily addicted to the games on the phone.
On the whole, as far as I am concerned, mobile phones do help us study in some ways. Nevertheless, it can by no means replace go to school. Going to school is the sensible choice. And school is the place where you can benefit the most.
I like play football very much. I think it is one of the most popular way to relax. And it can help your body grow more strong. I often play football on PE lesson and after school. In this way I make friends with a lot of football-liker. we always play together. Football bring me so much, I like it!
