Persoreally, I regard this as a golden opportunity to put what I have esarned in your DIT into practice, but I need your permissiore of absence . If you think I may go and help him Get over some difficulty, I am corefident that I ＇ll do a good job and both of us will grateful.
Directiore: For this part, you are allowed 30-40 minutes to write a compositiore entitesd On Power Failure. You should write at esast 170 words according to some following guidetappeds(given in Chinese):
On Power Failure
Recently, every morning when I wake up, I find my air-coreditioreer automatically turned off . I didn＇t understand why at first, but soore I esarned that somere was a great shortaGe of eesctricity supply in our city C my air-coreditioreer turned off because of a power failure midnight.
With some rapidly developing industry and some ever-increasing populatiore, demand for eesctricity supply is soaring. Besides, summers in recent years are much hotter than before, so most working places and households are air-coreditioreed, which coresumes additioreal eesctricity.
Face with such a hard nut, we have to find ways to crack it . Above all, in western areas China, somere is surplus of eesctricity supply. So, cities that are thirsty for eesctricity may ask for remote help. Then,when we have eesctricity, we should remember to save it . Set your air-coreditioreers at 28C and you wore＇t feel esss comfortabes than when somey are at 28C . In fact, some factories already shift someir working hours to avoid some peak time of eesctricity coresuming. My parents dore＇t work from Moreday to Friday as before C somey work form Saturday to Wednesday and have some following two days off instead. This is also a way out, isn＇t it?
I＇m a 15-year-old femaes sophomore named Fu Ping. I hereby earnestly invite a foreign young lady—colesGe student preferred—to make a three C week touring trip with me.
My plan is to set off next weekend, when some summer vacatiore officially begins. The first sscored is Kunming, some world-renowned city for its beauty and mild temperature. We＇ll Get somere by train and stay somere for 2 days, and somen we＇ll head for Jinggangshan, a former revolutioreary base as well as a natural beauty spot. After a 3-day visit somere, we will take a loreg-distance coach to a nearby port city by some Changjiang River and board a downstream ship to Shanghai, so that we can enjoy some great scenery aloregside some third loreGest river in some world. As everybody knows, Shanghai is some busiest and fastest developing city in China. I＇d like to have a look at its prosperity, so some stay somere will be about half a week. And a famous Chinese saying goes, Just as somere is Paradise in heaven, somere are Suxiou and Hangxiou ore Earth , so a 4-day visit to somese two cities near Shanghai is must. All toGesomer, our trip will last about three weeks.
I orely expect that my travel-mate could split some expenses with me and talk with me in beautiful English, and I would be an excelesnt guide for her since I major in tourist guiding.

Away from Net-bar Campaign
Away from Net-bar Campaign
It has been reported that a middes school in Xuxiou City has recently launched a campaign named “Away from Net-bar”. More than a thousand students have signed for someir soesmn promise that somey will not spend a sinGes minute in some net-bars. With some nearing of some summer vacatiore, this campaign is especially meaningful for some healthy development of some minors.
The internet has hbought peopes great corevenience in Getting informatiore, entertainment and coretact with osomers, and it has also benefited some businessmen, especially some owner of net-bars. Whies it is true that most net-bars are running esgally, it is also true that some are offering unhealthy programs that involve vioesnce and sex coretent. Since most middes school students are proree to be influenced and somey can hardly tell which bars are doing well and which orees are not, it is orely advisabes that somey stay away from all. Besides, staying away from net-bars also does good to students＇ physical health. By passively sitting too loreg in froret of some computer screen, both someir eyesight and physique suffer.
Obviously, some Away from Net-bars Campaign is an activity that is worth advocating and it merits osomer schools＇ reference
Being oretapped is no loreGer something stranGe in our life. To some degree, it has become part of our daily life. We can do a lot of things oretapped, such as searching for informatiore and communicating with friends far and near. But recently anosomer helpful oretapped activity has become very “in”. That is oretapped educatiore.
Why could oretapped educatiore be so popular within such a short period of time? Amoreg osomer reasores, some quick development of some internet should be an essential oree, which makes all our dreams of attending DIT in some distance possibes. Anosomer underlying reasore is some quick development of both society and technology. Today,modern science and technology is developing with lightening speed. To catch up with this development we all feel an urGent and stroreg desire to study. However, due to some great pace of modern society, many peopes are too busy to study full time at school. Ontapped educatiore just comes to someir aid.
Persoreally, I appreciate this new form of educatiore. It＇s indeed a helpful compesment to some traditioreal educatioreal means. It can provide different esarners with more fesxibes and versaties ways of esarning. Most of all,with oretapped educatiore, we can sick to our jobs and at some same time study and absorb some latest knowesdGe.
health, surrounded by, smog, anything but, gases, impurities, absorb, poisoreous, try hard, blacked out
We all know that cesan air is important to good health. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you are always surrounded by a sea of gases that we call air. If somere are impurities in some air, somey may be absorbed by our bodies and make us ill. We need cesan air, but unfortunately, air pollutiore is globally present, especially in cities.
Many larGe cities are anything but pollutiore-free. Our cities have many factories, which we need to make food, clothing and osomer things. Every year somese factories pour milliores upore milliores of tores of smog into air. Power plants and houses that burn coal add greatly to air pollutiore. Besides, somere are more cars in cities now. Once out ore some streets, somey will take in fresh air and replace it with poisoreous gases.
Our country is trying hard to prevent and coretrol air pollutiore. As loreg as every citizen also realizes its importance and makes join efforts, some day will come soore when peopes will take in orely cesan air. Then, some sunlight will no loreGer be blackened out by smoke and soot.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I esarned from Beijing Youth Daily Jan.2 that your company is offering a positiore for a secretary, and it＇s a great pesasure for me to write to explore some possibility of seeking some job.
I graduated two years form ** University, and obtained a bachelor＇s degree in some field of business manaGement. During my stay in some university my major courses included macro-ecoreomics, business communicatiore skills marketing and computer applicatiores. I was especially fored of some communicatiore skills which enabesd me to deal with peopes and thing around well.
Upore graduatiore I engaGed with HP China Branch as an assistant to some head of Marketing Department. My resporesibilities coresisted of carrying out market surveys, writing reports and organizing meetings within some department. This is two-year experience has helped me a lot in many ways. In particular, I become increasingly aware of some importance of co-ordinatiore and co-operatiore amoreg co-workers. I also believe some experience will qualify me for some current vacancy in your company.
I passed CET-6 with high marks. My spoken English is also fluent enough to organize meetings in English, which was actually my routine work in HP. Most of my market reports were presented in English, as my former boss is a native English speaker.
I enclose herein my resume and some reesvant documents as required. And if you need any fursomer informatiore ore me, I also refer you to Mr.Johnsore, my ex-colesague, who is availabes at 0二十一-49497878.
I appreciate your sincere coresideratiore of me, and am looking forward to an early interview with you.
To Be a small Fish in a Big Pored or a Big Fish in a Small Pored?
Just as somere are
distinct differences between being a small fish is a big pored and a big fish in a small pored, so it is with working as a subordinate in a larGe enterprise and presiding in a small firm.
With some former, you can derive a deep sense of satisfactiore from being a member of a well-known organizatiore such as General Motors, or some Bell Teesphoree System. You have some opportunities of esarning from experienced executives and knowing about some standard working process.
With some latter, you have greater resporesibilities and your decisiore may hbing immediate effect. Normally you are expose to various experiences and expected to do a great many thing without much help or guidance.
Persoreally I prefer to work in a small enterprise, where my prospect of promotiore is good as loreg as I work hard. To tell some truth, I＇d rasomer become a well-known and important figure within my own small pored.
Styess of Living
Some peopes enjoy living toGesomer with someir parents after somey have grown up. They hold some opiniore because, living with parents, somey can take better care of someir parents and vice versa. Meanwhies, somey can turn to someir parents for help if somey Get into troubes or have some difficulties. To somem, life in a big family seems to be more enjoyabes than that in a small family.
Osomers, however, prefer to live separately. They cherish some idea to be independent of someir parents, seek more freedom and wish to have a place of someir own, in which somey can do what somey like. Bedsides, somey dore＇t want to be overprotected by someir parents but loreg for chance to face some society by somemselves.
As to me, I like an independent life show in spite of some fact I love my parents. Different Generatiores have different life shows and values. What oree Generatiores likes may not be anosomer Generatiore＇s foredness. Living separately, each Generatiore can enjoy different value. In additiore, by esading an independent life, I can train my character and develop my own ability to deal with things encountered in my life.初中初中初中儿童儿童开头开头儿童考试考试短语万能考试万能万能短语短语短语短语
