As is vividly shown in the picture above, sitting in a sofa comfortably, a lovely woman is reading an interesting book and chatting with her husband. Obviously, what the portrayal conveys is that utmost significance should be attached to reading.
From reading extensively, we can derive companionship, experience and instruction. First and foremost, a good book is our faithful friend. It can increase our contentment when we are cheerful and happy, and lessen our pain when we are sad or lonely. Furthermore, reading extensively can also offer us a wide range of experiences. Few of us can travel far from home or live long over one hundred, but all of us can live many lives through the pages of books. The last but not the least, reading extensively can increase our intellectual ability, broaden our minds and make us wise.
Though with the advent of TV and Internet, books are no longer read as extensively as they once were, nothing can replace the role that reading extensively plays in our lives.
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you to apply for a student loan. As a freshman from the English Department, I have much financial difficulty in continuing my study.
There are five members in my family. My father is the only breadwinner of the whole family while my mother was laid off two years ago. My grandmother has been suffering a chronic illness for more than five years. My younger brother is now studying in a high school. I took part-time jobs during the summer vacation, but what I have earned is far from enough for me to pay the required tuition fees. In order to continue my study, I have to apply for a student loan.
If my request is granted, I will make good use of the money and put my heart into study. I will definitely pay back the loan according to the requirements. I hope that you will consider my application.
Looking forward to your reply.
Some people say that money is the best thing in the world. But I consider reading books as the best and the most precious thing one can ever have.
Reading books is very important. First of all, it is knowledge that makes society develop and by reading books you can get all kinds of knowledge. Furthemore, reading books makes you a qualified person and makes your life enjoyable.
One is never too old to learn. No matter what time you rcalize the importance of reading books, you can enjoy it during the rest of your life time. Love books, for they are your best friends.
Walking on campus, you always find that you are surrounded by enonnous posters for college societies.There are various organizations catering for students' different interests,sucb as Football Club,tbe Guitar Society,the Pop Music Society,and Society of photograpbers,and the Volunteer's Society,etc.
The reason why some students are so entbusiastic about college societies is mainly that they can obtain what they can't get from classrooms.Moreover,in tbe societies,students will develop their interests and talents,and gain opportunity to communicate with others, which can help them grow into men or women of all-round development.
Taking all tbe above into consideration,I think it is advisable for students to participate in some societies.Out-of-class activities can help them relax after hard work and add enjoyment and excitement to their campus life.Besides,college societies provide students with opportunities to contact witb more people and prepare tbem for life outside campus. Apart from outstanding acadernic acbievements,the modem society requires of young students many qualities,such as being cooperative,innovative, responsible and the students' participating in college societies is a practical approach for their comprehensive development.(188 words)
