How to be a good learner
To be a good learner， we should have good habits and ways of learning.
We need to get ready for our lessons before class and always listen carefully in class. After class， we must go over the lessons and finish our homework on time. It’s good to study in groups and help each other. We should do more reading in our free time. If we have any problems， we’d better ask others for help. As a student， working hard is important， but don’t forget to do sports and keep healthy.
I think all above is helpful to us to be a good learner.

I am very glad to tell you something about spring festival.
It’s a traditional festival in china. It comes in winter.
It’s time to get new. We usually clean and decorate our houses carefully before it comes. I always help my mother clean the windows and wash the clothes. We put on Chunlian on the doors and chuanghua on the windows.
It’s time to say goodbye to the last year， and say hello to the New Year. Everyone goes home to get together with their families， no matter how far it is. They must have dinner together on that day. They must visit their relatives and friends and say “Happy New Year” to them. When the kids greet their grandparents， they can get money.

Changes in people’s life
Great changes have taken place in people’s life in the last few years.
In the past people kept in touch with relatives or friends mainly by sending letters. They would listen to the radio for news and other information. Children used to go to school by bike. Big families had to share small rooms.
Now people can talk to others by telephone or on the internet at home. When they are free， they watch the news and other programs on TV. Some families are rich enough to send their children to school in their own cars. More and more people live in big and bright apartment with several rooms.
In a word， people live better than before.
