As we know, water is very important to man, we can’t live without water. The amount of water which is suitable to drink is less and less. But some people don’t care about it. They waste a lot of water in their daily life. Even worse, they pour dirty water into rivers. They throw rubbish into rivers, too. Many rivers and lakes are seriously polluted. Something must be done to stop the pollution. And I think it’s a great shame to waste while millions are in great need of water. I think what we can do is that we have to save every drop of water as possible as we can. For example, we must turn off the tap immediately after we use it. We can use a basin to wash our hands and faces. It’s also a good idea to encourage my friends and family members to join me! Only in this way can we live happily. If we don’t save water, the last drop of water will be a tear-drop of us. I believe if everyone makes a little effort, we can make a big difference.

How to keep a good relationship with parents
In my opinion, I have too many rules at home. My parents never allow me to go out with my friends at night. They don’t allow me to choose my own clothes, either. And they pay too much attention to my exam results. I think my parents don’t quite understand me.
However, I try my best to understand them. Although they don’t allow me to make my own decisions and give me too much presure, I know that it is because they really love me and want me to have a bright future.
In order to keep a good relationship with my parents, I study hard and listen to them. I talk with them as friends, and always tell them my troubles. I also help them do some housework.
Behave well in our daily life

Jiangbin Park is a good place for people to relax. Every day many people come here to play and exercise . But a few years ago, a lot of bad behaviors happened quite often Some threw litter everywhere and painted on the walls. Some picked flowers, destroyed trees and hurt animals. And even worse, some smoked in the woods. How dangerous!
Luckily, things have changed now. Rubbish is always put into dustbins. People are friendly to animals. Nobody smokes around the woods and places of interest are well kept. All these changes make us happy.
As a student, I think we should know it’s our duty to protect the environment. In order to make our city more beautiful, let’s behave well and try our best to help fight (against) bad behaviors.
Glad to receive your e-mail. Our school has made safety rules for us to follow. Let me tell you something about them .
We are asked to be careful with electricity when we are using it. It is dangerous to play with fire, for it may cause terrible accidents. We should make sure doors and windows are shut before we leave. Besides, we are not allowed to swim alone, especially in deep rivers or lakes. If we really want to, we must go to the swimming pool with our parents or teachers .What's more, following traffic rules is also very important. Everyone should watch out when crossing the road. And our school warns us not to play on the road.
I think these rules are necessary as safety comes first.
Have a good summer holiday!
Last week, a friend of mine came to visit me, I felt so surprised, because we lose touch for many years, he was my classmate when I was in primary school, now five years has passed, both of us have entered college. My friend told me that he was doing a research, he remembered my home address, so he came to visit me. We talked many things in primary school, it was a beautiful memory, both of us were naughty at that time, but we loved sport, we played the basketball match and won the first place. When the time he left, we made the deal to be gather for the next time.
Nowadays, more and more people like to travel in their holidays. The other day I read a report about the ways people spend their holidays. It is reported that in recent yiars several new holiday habits have been developed. Among them, the most interesting one is the growth of the so-called holiday camps.
From the report we can see that in 20XX,40 percent of people stayed at home for holidays. But now the proportion has reduced to 9 percent. More people go out for fun. The proportion of camping and traveling abroad was increasing steadily, from 10 percent in 20XX to 38 percent in 20XX, and 12 percent in 20XX to 26 percent in 20XX respectively. People enjoy the fresh air, clean Water and green hills when they go camping in the suburbs. In 20XX,38 percent people enjoyed going to the seaside while in 20XX only 27 percent prefer to go there. What great changes!
Why did those changes appear? I think there are several reasons. First, it' s because people can afford traveling. Second, people prefer to pursue a high-quality and colorful life. Third, their attitudes to relaxation have changed. Less people want to save much money by leading a simple life. In short, people's living standard today has been rising greatly.
