2. Scenic spots
I am very glad to introduce my trip in Xi? an，the capital city of Shanxi Province. What impress me deeply are its natural scenery and long history.
First，as is known to the world，Xi? an has a long history and is the origin of Chinese civilization.The cultural and historical significance of the area，as well as so many historical sites，help Xi? an enjoy the title of ?Natural History Museum?. Just take Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses for example. It is praised as‘the eighth major miracle of the world’.Second，it is in a favorable geographical location surrounded by water and hills, for example, to the north of the city stands the Qinling Mountains and to the north lies the Weihe River. I have also climbed Mountain Huashan, one of the five best?known mountains in China, which is famous for its breath?taking cliffs and its unique characteristics.
It is really worth your visiting. I am looking forward to your coming.
Yours， Li Ming
The average family income in our Kangming City increased from 8,000 yuan per year in 1998 to 20,000 yuan in 2008. In the meantime, the structure of the average family expenses has changed, too. These graphs show the change clearly.
The biggest part of the average family expenses is housing. In 1998, the average family spent 25 percent of its income on housing. In 2880, expenses on housing rose to 42 percent. Food and drink are the second biggest part of the average family expenses. In 1998, about 18% of the average income was spent on this item. In 2008, the figure grew to 30%. As a result of such increase in the expenses on housing and food, expenses on other items have been reduced from 57% in 1998 to 28% in 2008.
Thus, a conclusion can be drawn that as income increases, people can improve their living step. But still the average family has to spend a large part of income to meet the basic needs.

5. Spring outing
假设你是红星中学高三一班的学生李华，为校刊英语园地写一篇题为“Our Spring Outing” 的英文稿件。请根据以下四幅图的先后顺序，叙述上周你们班从准备春游到春游结束的完整过程。
提示词： 游乐园 amusement park 垃圾箱
After a week of hard study, we decided to have a relaxation for the weekend. We discussed where to go in our class meeting. Some of us advised to go to the amusement park, some others suggested going boating, there were also some students believing climbing mountains is a great choice due to its great benefits for our health. Finally, we all agreed to climb mountains.
On the Saturday, we started climbing mountain very early with bright sunshine and gentle breeze greeting us. When arriving at the mountain top, we were shocked to see a great deal of rubbish scattering every where. We were surprised by the scene and angry with irresponsible ones who threw about the rubbish and pollute the environment.
We classified the rubbish on the way down the mountain, and then put some of them in the recycled bin and the others in the un-recycled bin. Although we were tired
out, the meaningful experience will last forever in our mind.
6. Making a Speech
假设你是星光中学的李华，将参加主题为“Let's Ride Bicycles”的英语演讲比赛。请撰写一份演讲稿，主要内容包括：
参考词汇：低碳生活(low-carbon life)；节能(energy saving
Good morning, everyone!
I am Li Hua from Xingguang Middle School. The topic of my speech is“Let's Ride Bicycles”.
As is known to all, with the improvement of people's living standards, cars have become a popular means of transport, bringing great convenience to our life. However, they have also caused some problems such as air pollution and traffic jams.
How can we solve the problems then? As far as I'm concerned, riding bicycles is a good solution. For one thing, bicycles don't need any petrol and they are energy-saving. For another, bicycles are environmentally friendly because they won't give off waste gas. What?s more, riding bicycles is a good way for us to exercise and it is beneficial to our health.
Therefore, let's take the responsibility to build up a low-carbon city by riding bicycles. Come on and join us!
Thank you !

9. The Internet
目前，一些诸如GG, MM, Xia Mi 等网络语言在青少年中极为盛行，并且出现在家庭作业报告，甚至全国入学考试的作文中。请你以“Should Internet Slang Be Prohibited (禁止)？”为题，根据下表内容用英语写一篇短文，并谈谈你自己的看法。
注意：1. 短文开头已经给出，不计入总词数；2. 词数：100左右
Should Internet Slang Be Prohibited ?
At present, Internet Slang, such as “GG, MM, Xia Mi”, has become popular among the teenagers.
There are different opinions on Internet Slang. Some students think Internet Slang is vivid, fashionable and full of humor and intelligence. Besides, it makes chatting on the Internet quicker.
However, some other students think Internet Slang lacks depth of thought and is too simple. Also, it is hard to understand and not accepted by most people. The words sometimes might make people confused, even resulting in misunderstanding.
Every coin has two sides. In my opinion, living in the Information Age, if we don?t know the Internet Slang, we seem to fall behind the times. It will be OK as long as these terms are used correctly in proper situations.
Recently we made a survey of the people on physical training.Only 35 percent of the surveyed people have had sports but the rest have never.
Do you know why ? There are several reasons for this.
More than 10% of them don?t know how to train.More than 10% of them think the places where they can do exercise are so far away from their houses that it is not convenient for them to do exercise.Over 30% of them complain that there is not enough space or facilities.Even more than 10% of them say that they haven?t got enough time.
Lack of physical training will not keep people healthy. It is necessary for people to realize the importance of physical training.Some measures should be taken to
provide people with training facilities and places.
In a word everyone should take part in physical training in order to keep himself healthy.
Traveling by Train or by Plane
When we go on a business trip, we will be faced with the choice of traveling by train or by plane. Before making the right choice, we had better make a close comparison and contrast of them.
First of all, a train will take us to our target railway station. Also, a plane will take us to the target airport. Second, in a train we can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the countryside. Likewise, in a plane we can command a good view of fields, buildings, mountains and even plains of clouds. Despite these similarities, they differ in the following aspects. First, a train ticker is cheap. Most of us can afford it. However, a plane ticket is about twice as expensive as a train ticket. Most of us grudge paying for it. Besides, it is safer to travel by train. If the train gets some trouble, we survive by jumping out of it. On the contrary, if we travel by plane, we have to ask God to bless us. However, it takes us longer time to travel by train than by plane.
Therefore, it depends which transportation tool we should choose. If we just want to save money, we will travel by train. But if we want to save time, we will turn to the plane.
12. School life
1. English club设立的目的 2. English club 要开展的活动
3. 邀请大家参加 English club
注意： auditorium 礼堂
Boys and girls,
I?m the chairman of Student Union, Li Hua, and I have big news for you. To enrich our life on campus and improve our English, we, Student Union, set up an English club. Obviously, besides study, there are also other things beneficial to us. It is believed that the club can make our campus life colorful and rewarding. There goes the plan.
It is arranged that we will see English films in the auditorium on Tuesday evening. Apart from that, there is going to be an English debate or discussion on Saturday evening; yet, the specific topics haven? t been settled. If you have wonderful ideas and suggestions, please let us know.
I?ll highly appreciate it if you are actively involved in the club. You will never regret joining us. So, just do it.
13. Growing pains
假定你是李华。在一个英文网络论坛上, 你看到一个名叫Grown-up的中学生发帖（post）寻求帮助, 请根据帖子内容, 写作要点和要求回贴。
写作要点： 1. 告诉Grown-up要理解母亲；
As a student of your age, I understand your situation. The problem you are facing is common among our teenagers. However, it should be wise not to do anything that may hurt her feelings. Here are a few suggestions.
First, it?s advisable to talk more with your mom. Heart to heart talks help you understand each other better. They are also opportunities to let her know your ideas of and attitudes toward many things.
Second, you should learn to do your own things well, proving to your mom that you are already a “Grown-up”. It?s even better if you could share more of the housework, such as cleaning, washing and cooking.
It is reported that tourists to China?s Great Wall can now leave their mark on a fake wall recently built near the real wall in Badaling if they pay 999 yuan.
In China, many visitors have the hobby of carving graffiti on places of interest, especially on some famous cultural relics. Last year I went to the Great Wall and found many people had left names and ugly words on the Wall, which destroys many historic bricks. In my opinion, such people should feel ashamed of leaving their marks on the great relics which were created by our ancestors.
So personally I quite agree with this brilliant project though it has caused criticism from some people. The Great Wall would be ruined one day if we didn?t take any steps to protect it. The fake wall is a really good idea because it will protect our relics as well as making profits from the project.
15. The Positive and the Negative Effects of Advertising
In the modern information era, one can't avoid being surrounded by various kinds of advertisements. They serve as a direct bridge between manufactures and consumers. By advertising, manufactures can easily introduce their products and attract the attention of consumers. On the other hand, consumers will have more opportunities to get to know more about the things they are interested in.
However, there are still lots of people who complain that many of the words in advertisements are rather misleading. Some manufactures spend far too much money on advertising their products without trying to promote the quality of their goods. To make things worse, some people even use false descriptions in their advertisements for the sake of making money.
Perhaps it is not advertising that should be blamed rather we need to strengthen advertising law. Only under the firm control of government, can advertisements benefit people in the broadest sense.
