Good morning, everyone! Today I’m going to tell you about young people’s dreams.
People used to say, “ The hand that rocks the cradle(摇篮) rules the world.” And “ Behind every successful man there is a woman.”
Both these saying mean the same thing . Men rule the world, but their mothers and wives rule them. Most American women wish to make their husbands and sons successful, but some of them want more for themselves. They want to be as successful as men.
The American women’s liberation（解放） movement was started by women who didn’t want to stand behind successful men. They wanted to stand beside men, with the same chance for success. They refused to work side by side by side with men who did the same work for a higher pay.
This movement is quite new, and many American women don’t agree yet. But it has already made some important changes in women’s lives—in men’s lives, too. Liberated women are proud of being a woman and have confidence in themselves. More and more women are holding important positions in companies, institutions and politics. More people than ever have realized that women deserve as much respect as men.
Heilongjiang Provincial Education Department has recently taken strict measures to make sure that no student has to go to school on weekends or during official holidays.

Living in the city has both advantages and disadvantages… _____________________________
With the women’s liberation movement carried out, American women now enjoy a better situation in both their families and the society. What they have done proves women deserve as much respect as men.
Women in the world have long been treated unfairly. They were limited in their homes where they could not share equal rights with men. Now the situation has improved greatly, but they are still not treated equally as men. And this is a worldwide problem. Considering the contribution women do to their families and the society, women should be given as much respect and as many opportunities. They should be paid as much as men if they do the same job. Men should gjve up the belief that men should have some privilege. On the other hand , women should make themselves more able, be more self-confident and more active. I believe the day will come when women enjoy real equality with men.
One possible version:
Heilongjiang Provincial Education Department has recently taken strict measures to make sure that no student has go to school on weekends or during official holidays. For the first time in our senior middle school life the students in Senior 1 and 2 can enjoy full-length weekends, and for the first time in years they are free to do what is necessary and important to meet their personal needs. In the past years, we kept working hard from morning till night in order to get a higher mark in the college entrance exam. We omitted everything (such as art classed, social activities, etc.) that did not have a direct relationship with that goal. Consequently, many of us are weak both physically and mentally. Over 70 percent of my classmates are near-sighted… If the whole generation of us continue to live this way, what would the future of our nation be like?! I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to our responsible government for its wise and timely decision to bring all that to an end.

This evening I went to the KTV with some of my good friends.
This was the first time that I had been to a KTV and at first I didn’t want to go. I was in a bad mood the whole afternoon because I didn’t do well in math exam. At the KTV, everybody sang his favorite songs very happily except me – I was the only one of the audience. I didn’t dare to have a try because I was afraid that I couldn’t sing well. Encouraged by my classmates, I picked up the microphone and sang an English song entitled I believe I can fly.
I have become cheerful now and above all I’ve regained self-confidence. I believe that the worst enemy in one’s life is oneself. I shouldn’t lose heart just because of one or two failures because I still have chances to try.
5．Living in the city has both advantages and disadvantages. It is often easier to find jobs. There are always many choices of public transport. Besides, there are a lot of interesting things to do and places to see. You can eat at good restaurants, visit museums, go to cinemas and go to parks whenever you want to relax.
However, living in the city is often very expensive. You must find a well paid job, otherwise, you will not be able to afford the things you will do. What’s more, the city is always crowded, noisy and polluted. It is very difficult to find a good place where people can enjoy peace and fresh air as in the countryside.
