Guo jingming was born in June 6th, 1983 in Si Chuan. He was a famous novelist as well as the chief editor of “ZUI novel”.
Since his first work——“on the edge of love and hatred” was published in 2002, he has produced more than 30 literature works. Among them, the series —— “Tiny times” is well-received by teen readers. With the description of the modern life of several teenagers and university students in a new way, “Tiny times” express the observation and thinking from the author, which is a excellent work.
Though Guo achieved a lot, he way to success was not smooth at all. He spent most of his time read at home when he was young. Besides, he dropped out of school from ShangHai University. However, he was keen on literature and strongly believed in himself. Finally, his effort and confidence brought him great success!
In my view, he is really an idol of us and we should learn from him!
在描述人物背景的部分懂得运用as well as和非限定性定从来叙述信息；此外，在介绍作品的时候用到with短语以及让步状语从句，这些都能体现写作用语的丰富性。Besides，finally，however等连接性词语使文章更为流畅，更加紧密。时态和信息都能准确选取和表达。有些从句用得比较生硬，动词、介词搭配和冠词也有错误。
Guo Jingming was born on 6 June, 1983 in Sichuan Province. He is well known as a Chinese novelist and the chief editor of “Zui Novel”.
As a writer, Guo created his first work called “The Edge of Love And Pain” in 2002. Since then, he has written over 30 works, among which a series named “Tiny times” is very popular with young readers. “Tiny times” mainly describe about a group of youth and their university lives. The works reveal the writer’s opinions about our society. So they turned out to be a success.
Most teenagers like him because he sticks to his dream of literature and becomes successful through hard work. Although dropping out of school from Shanghai University, he still kept on reading and learning. It is his confidence and love for literature that lead to his great honor. In my opinion，he is successful and we should learn from him.
假设上周末你与朋友刚看完美国电影《地心历险记2：神秘岛》（Journey 2: The Mysterious Island）。请根据以下提示，写一篇英语观后感，向你校的“电影分享”栏目投稿，内容包括：
a) 本文共有 个要点
Last weekend, I watched a popular American movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island with my classmates. This is the best movie I have ever seen. It describes a adventure story about a 17-year-old boy called Sean and his other three partners who looked for the mysterious island and saved the only human on the island.
I like this movie so much that I think it is the best film that I have ever seen. First the 3D effect is really fantastic such as the amazing island with birds singing and flowers everywhere, the last seabed world and the scene where the bee fought against the big bird made a deeep impression on me. Besides, I can see risk, courage, the family warmth and a merry ending from the characters, which make me feel extremely excited and very relaxed. Not only it is interesting but also it is instructive. If you feel like watching a movie, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is surely a good choice.
In the noon sun farmers hoe their fields;
Their sweat keeps dripping into the soil.
Be sure to value the food for our meals
As every grain of it comes from hard toil
Hints : hoe锄头 drip 滴下toil 辛苦
d) 本文共有 个要点
The poem described us a lively picture of the farmers’s hard work. The farmers devoted all their lives to the agriculture field. In spite of the hot weather, they insisted on hoeing their fields , letting the sweat keep dripping into the soil.
After reading the poem, I think we should value the life that we have .We are used to enjoying the comfortable life. So sometimes we can’t understand how hard farmers are. As a matter of fact, every grain comes from hard toil.
We should not only treasure the food for our meals but also study hard! The harder we work, the more we can understand the farmers as well as the true meaning of life.
当今有不少小说被改编成电影。有人喜欢看电影，有人喜欢看小说。以 “Film and novel, which do you prefer ?” 为题，按照下列要点写一篇80词左右的英语短文。
g) 本文共有 个要点
Film and novel, which do you prefer ?
Some people think it better to see the film than to read the novel. The reason is that it takes less time to know the whole story. Besides, the film is usually more interesting with the music and actions, and it also helps you understand the story better.
Others, however, believe that by reading the novel, they can enjoy the wonderful descriptions and learn the beautiful language.
Personally, I prefer novels. I always like to read a novel with a cup of tea and quietly communicate with the author. It helps improve our reading skills in a relaxed way.
