I m writing to tell you about the discussion we ve had about whether it is necessary for middle school students to carry mobile phones to school.
 The majority of the students think that it is more convenient for them to keep in touch with their parents and classmates if they have a mobile phone. And what s more, it s the latest fashion.
 However, most teachers think middle school students are not old enough to control themselves. It is a waste of time for students to play games and send messages to each other by mobile phone. And it s easy to cause the students to vie with each other. If necessary, they can make phone calls by using public phones on the campus.
 In my opinion, following the fashion is understandable. But as middle school students, we should put all our heart into our studies.
English Is My Favorite Subject
 English is my favorite subject, because it s such a widely used language. It is important for everyone to learn English well in our rapidly developing world.
 English has now become an international language because it is used by almost every country in the world. If you want to do business with foreigners, you have to learn English, because most of them speak and write in English. English is one of the working languages at international conferences. Today, many great reports, papers, and books are written in English, so if you want to read them, you must know English well. If you know English, you can also understand people from other countries better and contribute more effectively to world peace.
 No matter what you do in the future, English will always be important. So we should pay more attention to learning English in order to make our country powerful, competitive, and international.
