Knowing that you are conducting a survey of the housework that high school students do at home, I’m writing to inform you about what I do.
Althoughmy school schedule is rather tight, I still manage to help withthe housework from time to time. Not only doI clean up after dinner, but I also deal with other things like sweeping and dusting.
I hold the opinion thathigh school students should do some housework. For one thing,it is by doing housework that we learn to shoulder responsibility. For another,I findthe time spent doing housework with my parentsreally fun and rewarding.
I hope that what I mentioned above will be of great use to your survey.
I am overjoyed that you are keen onChinese Tea Art. I am writing to inform you about my favorite optional course Chinese Tea Art.
Dating back tothousands of years ago, Chinese Tea Art isthe symbol of traditional Chinese culture. It is by being immersed inthe course that my pressure can be relieved. Falling on every Sunday, the class consists ofa lecture delivered by a local tea specialist and an activity concerning how to make wonderful tea and then taste it. Having attendedthe course for some time, I have reaped huge fruits. Not onlyhave I had a better command ofChinese tea culture, but also Ihave cultivated a good state of mind.
In short, so meaningful and fascinating is the course thatI recommend you come to experience itin person.
I am Li Hua. Seeing that you are eager to acquire a better knowledge ofthe use of red in China. I am writing to inform you of some relevant details.
We Chinese have a passion forred, which, in many cases, stands for good fortunein our culture. Therefore,not only dowe hand outlucky money in red envelopes to children, but alsoyoung couples are dressed in red at their weddings. Despite its wide use, red is not suitable forall occasions. Be sure to avoid wearingred clothes when attending a funeralor visiting patients and the like.
It is my hope thatmy introduction will give you insights into the use of red.
Seeing that you are interested in my recent social practice, I am writing to share with you some relevant information.
The social practice, scheduled from8:00 to 10:00 on the morning of last Friday, took placeat the Gardening Base near our school. Aiming to exposeus to an enjoyable and meaningful atmosphere, a variety of activities were held. Upon our arrival, we were initially instructed to appreciateflowers in bloom. Then came a lecture delivered by an expert about flower arrangement. Lastly, under the guide’s patient instruction, I managed to accomplishmy flower arrangement.
In my eyes, not only does it broaden our minds, but it also helps us have a further understanding oflabour.

Good morning everyone,
I am honored to deliverour group’s opinions concerningthe topic “Wild Animals Protection”.
Initially, there is no denying that wild animals should be protected legally. They belong topart of nature. On top of that, they are of significant importance to ecological balance. However,some of them, at the present time, are faced with the danger of dying outbecause of illegally hunting and killing. Therefore, it is high time that immediate measures should be taken. Not onlymust some laws be enforced as soon as possible to prohibit people killing and selling them, but alsoall of us should rasie awareness of wild animals conservation.
Let’s appreciate the significance of their protection. Protecting them means protecting ourselves.
2) 可以适当增加细节, 以使行文连贯；
Good morning, everyone.
I’m Li Hua, a senior graduate. It’s my great honor to stand here to deliver my speech.
It has been three years since my high school kicked off. At this moment, I cannot bear to part butI am also eager for my new life in university. During the three years, not only have I made some true friends who shared sorrows and joys with me, but also I have gained various knowledge. Before leaving, I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to my teachers. It was they who patiently answered our endless questions.Besides, I owe many thanks to my dear classmates. Without their help and encouragement, I couldn’t have overcome so many difficulties. Now I’ve been determined to lead a more meaningful life in university and I will live up to the expectations of my teachers and my parents.
Thank you for your listening.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am Li Hua, a Chinese student intending to visit Britain this summer to improve my Englsih. Upon learning from your ad that your university holds a study course, I am writing to inquire of yousome relevant details.
For one thing, I would like to knowwhen the 6-week English course will begin and how many hours of learning you will provide per week. In the meantime, I am wonderinghow many students will be included in the class. For another,I am dying to knowhow much you will charge me forthe course Ultimately,it can’t be better ifyou could give me an account ofwhat the type of accommodation is. Can I have a single room or will I share a room withothers. By the way, I am wondering ifthe room comes with Internet access.
I would appreciate it ifyou could spare some time to explainthe questions above to me.I am looking forward to your reply.
I am delightedto learn that you are coming to study in Beijing. Upon knowing that you are preparing for the HSK, I am writing to offer you some advice.
Initially,you are supposed to enlarge your vocabulary. As we all know, large vocabulary contributes to breaking down barriers toreading. As a saying goes, “practice makes perfect.” You are expected to seize any opportunity to communicate with others in Chinese. Last but not least, it is also a must for you to have a good knowledge of Chinese culture and history.
It is my hope that all suggestions mentioned above will be of great use to you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you still have any questions.
I am terribly sorry to hear thatyou fail to fit inour class. I am writing to offer you some advice.
For a start, the reason why it is beyond your power to fit in the class may be that you are unfamiliar with the environment. In order to get along well withnew classmates, not only should you face the problem bravely, but you should try your best to communicate with others in daily life. If possible, I will invite you to take part in some after-class activities.
I do hope that my advice will be beneficial to you fitting into the class. I am totally convinced that you will make it!
I am Li Hua, a high school student from China and a regular customer of yours. I am writing to complain aboutyour service.
To participate ina science fair, it wasout of faith inthe quality of goods and consideratecustomer service from Amazon thatI placed an order forfive copies of Popular Science on January 25th. However,I just couldn’t help losing my temper the instant I received the package. Due to your carelessness, my four classmates don’t possess the key reference booksin the critical stage ofthe project for the science fair. Withthe deadline for our project approaching, I do hope thatyou can take immediate measures to handle the problems.
Ultimately, I trust you will take my complaints into account seriously.
How are you doing? Seeing that our school ping pong team is looking for new teammates, I am writing to invite you to join us.
