I‘m Li Hua from Class One， Grade Three. I am glad to learn that some students from theUKwill come to our school on a cultural exchange program. My family would like to apply to be a host family for a British student.
There are three members in my family， my parents and me. All of us do very well in communicating in English， since my father and mother both work as teachers in universities. Currently， we have a spare bedroom available with an attached bathroom and free Internet access. Besides， my house is only five-minute walking distance away. It will be very convenient for him to get to and from school every day. I believe my guest will enjoy his stay here.

Dear teachers and friends，
I’d like to say something before Tracy goes back toEngland.
On one hand，Tracy is such a kind and friendly girl that I feel happy to be her friend.
Because of her good character she is very popular with us during her stay here. On the other hand，she gets along well with everyone and all of us have a wonderful time with her. How can we forget （1）the time that we spent together happily（我们一起度过的美好时光）！ I remember she doesn‘t hesitate to help us （2）whenever we have trouble in learning English（无论何时我们学习英语有困难时）．Therefore，we are grateful to Tracy from the bottom of our heart and we owe a lot of thanks to her.
（3）As the saying goes，true friendship never ends （正如俗话所说，真正的友谊地久天长），so I hope we can keep in touch with Tracy.I also hope that Tracy can come back toChinaand stay with us in the near future.
That’s all. Thank you！
I am glad to tell you something about the holiday activity “Happy Easter”held in our school on December 28. The event， which was intended to enrich our knowledge about the cultures of the main English-speaking countries， took place on the second floor of the science building. The participants， most of whom were enthusiastic English learners， played various English language games， including an Easter egg hunt. Mr. Fancher， a foreign teacher from theU.S.， gave us a vivid introduction of the major holidays in bothAmericaand Britan. The event began at 2 o’clock in the afternoon， and came to a successful end at 5 p.m.
I must say all of us have learned a lot from this “Happy Easter”activity， which I think is of great benefit for us English learners.
All the best wishes！
Dear Mr. Steven，
I‘m Li Hua，a student from Qiming Secondary School. I’m in charge of your visit to our school next week and I‘m writing to exchange ideas about the arrangements with you.
You’ll be picked up at the airport and after a short rest，we‘ll show you around our campus，（1）which will allow you to get a general impression of our school（这样可以让你们对我们学校有一个总体的印象）．Then you are supposed to visit our teaching buildings，the school stadium and the dormitories as well. After that，we will have lunch together in the school canteen. In the afternoon，a free talk will be arranged，so we can talk about the school life and different cultures of the two countries. In the evening，there will be a welcome party for you.
If you have any other request，please inform me in time （2）so that we can make some possible changes to the visiting schedule（以便我们能够对于你们的参观计划做一些可能的变化）．
假设你是光明中学的学生李明，已报名参加纽约大学的暑期中美文化交流游学营（Study Tour Camp）。但是寄宿家庭主人突然生病，无法招待你。请给你的美国朋友Tom写一封信，希望得到他的帮助。要点包括：
How is everything going？I have a good piece of news to tell you that I’ll take part in the Study Tour Camp in New York University this summer，（1）which aims to promote the cultural communication between China and America（旨在促进中美之间的文化交流）．
During the Study Tour，we will be shown around some famous universities and places of interest （2）while offered varieties of lectures（同时给我们提供了各种各样的讲座）．As you know，I have been interested in American culture. It will be a great opportunity for me to learn more about America and improve my English. However，I‘ve just learned that my host falls ill and it will be inconvenient for me to stay in his house. So I need your help. Could you please find a host family for me around New YorkUniversity？
（3）I would appreciate it if you could reply to me early（如能尽早回复我将不胜感激）．I’m looking forward to meeting you as soon as possible.
I‘m so glad to receive your last letter. I can’t thank you enough for your advice and help in my English study，（1）due to which I’ve made great progress in learning English（鉴于此，我的英语学习取得了很大的进步）．
As for your language study，I‘m concerned to know that you are facing some difficulties when studying Chinese. I’m willing to offer you some help.（2）As you know，Chinese is so flexible that you need to pay attention to the different meanings of a word or phrase in different situations（你知道，汉语如此灵活你需要注意一个词汇或短语在不同语境下的不同含义）．Besides，it is difficult for foreigners to write Chinese characters，especially for the beginners. So I advise you to learn some oral Chinese first. Then you may begin to try writing some simple Chinese characters. Finally，there is one point for you to remember： practice makes perfect.
（3）Another suggestion is that you should experience the native Chinese language environment in person（我的另一个建议是你应该亲自体验汉语母语的语言环境）．How about coming to China during the summer holiday？We can talk about our experience in language learning with each other.
Good morning ，everyone！
The topic of my speech today is “Thoughts becoming a grow-up.’’
As a child， I always hoped that I could grow up as soon as possible so that I could have whatever I wanted and do whatever I liked. Now I’m a grow-up， but I find things do not go as I expected. Although I can enjoy more freedom， at the same time I realize that being a grown-up not only means this， but also more responsibilities. I hope to do more for my parents and society in the future to make my life more meaningful. To reach the goal， I must first try my best to pass the College Entrance Examination and enter a good university.
Thank you for listening.
It‘s time to say goodbye. It’s time to recall those beautiful days we spend together. You are the very person who gives me a hand when necessary. You are the most considerate person who knows exactly what I need.
Still remember that night two years ago？ When I suddenly fell ill， it was you who carried me on your back to a nearby hospital. You took good care of me while I was having an injection. Later， you managed to help me with my lessons. Without your help， I would have failed in the examination.
I still have hundreds of stories to share with you. I still have thousands of blessings for you. May all your dreams come true！ May our friendship last till the end of the universe！
随着科技的发展，数字化家庭（digital family）已不仅仅是一种概念。根据下列提示，请你以“What is the digital family？”为题，写一篇介绍数字化家庭的短文。
What is the digital family？
（1）It emerges as a fresh thing that the digital family comes into being（数字家庭的形成是以新鲜事物的形式出现的）．It is based on the network technology.Its surprising character is to help people exchange information with faraway friends and control domestic appliances.Living in the digital family，people can enjoy many of its advantages.The first one is about the convenience in daily life.（2）Taking some digital equipment for example，they can help family members out of household duties（以某些数字化设备为例，它们能够帮助家人摆脱家务）．The second one is that it can reduce the living expenses.Because it can simplify traditional living ways，such as cooking，cleaning，washing，etc，people can benefit a lot from its low cost.The third one means it can improve people’s living quality.Its characteristics，including quickness，comfort，can provide users with enjoyment.（3）In conclusion，we have many reasons to believe that the digital family will be accepted by more and more people in the future（总之，我们完全相信：在未来，数字化家庭会被越来越多的人接受）．
Thank you very much for your concern. Last month several places in Beijing were blanketed（覆盖）with thick yellow fog. Everything around disappeared from our sight. Some highways were closed. Traffic jams were commonly seen in the streets. Many people， especially children and seniors， even found it difficult to breathe. As a result， local hospitals were crowded with people who had problems with their noses and lungs. Part of the cause was the dry weather， but the severely damaged environment contributed a lot to this nightmare. Personally I didn’t get any health problems in the haze because I stayed mostly indoors. But to make a significant change we really have to do more to protect our environment. To live a better life we have to push on with the economy， but it wound be meaningless if we have to achieve it at the cost of our breathing air.
Thank you for your letter asking about our discussion on low-carbon lifestyle.（1）The suggestions are as follows（建议如下）：
We can do a lot in our daily life to achieve the goal of living a low-carbon life.First，we’d better turn off lights if possible and spend less time watching TV or surfing the Internet.Saving water also matters much.Besides，we should sort out the rubbish，（2）hoping that we might recycle some（希望我们能循环利用一部分），（3）which will surely benefit us a great deal（这一定会对我们很有好处）．In addition，we suggest using handkerchiefs instead of tissues so that we can prevent more trees from being cut down.Most importantly，when we go out，walking，riding bikes or taking buses should be our first choice，which contributes to a cleaner world.
Recently our class had a heated discussion about whether it is important to protect cultural heritage. We are all divided in opinion about it.
87% of the students consider it important to protect cultural heritage. They think that cultural heritage is a symbol of great ancient civilization. Most cultural heritage is related to great people， so protecting it shows respect for them. Cultural heritage is of great value and protecting it can make us feel proud of our nation.
However， the rest hold the opinion that if doesn’t matter whether cultural heritage is protected. They think it won’t promote the development of society， so it is a waste of time and money to protect it.
As far as I’m concerned， our country’s cultural heritage protection has made great progress， but many problems still exist and need to be solved. Therefore， we should keep our mind clear and take more effective steps to better protect cultural heritage.
