opportunities and challenges
first, i would like to know, what does your destiny offer you? happiness, wisdom, a strong body or something else. if i had asked this question to president nixon, he would probably had said,“our destiny offers not the cup of despair, but the chalice of opportunity.”
needless to say, one of the biggest opportunities given to china is the XX olympic games. till now, we have used two sevenths of the preparation time. how much changes have you seen? new roads, new subway lines, public-exercising equipments with beautiful colors, large blocks of grass fields, and also lots of modern gyms which are under construction.
other than those, there are even more good effects brought to us by the olympic games that cannot be seen directly. for example, more and more people will get to know china. i'm sure the mysterious chinese culture will attract them strongly. and the games will also do good to the economy and environment, for it is gaining the attention of foreign investors and the awareness of environmental protection is being strengthened. what is more, olympic games give a unique opportunity to inspire and educate a new generation of chinese youth with the olympic values and the olympic spirit. now that we have seen so many advances, could you even imagine us losing the holding rights?
i've already said a lot about the olympics and china. but i think everyone should use some time to think of this question, “does the olympic games have any special meaning to you?”
for us, i mean the chinese youth, XX olympic games is a tremendous gift. because what we are waiting for is to do something significant as repaying the love given to us .the society is just like a ship, and in our dreams the captain is waving his hand and saying “hey! come here and take the helm! ”how charming his voice is, but we have never heard of it in our true life. this morning, however, when we wake up, we will see the olympic games waving its hand. after chewing, most of us will have at least one plan about what to do for the olympic games. and mine is to be a “comforter” ----that is someone who will give comfort to others.
at the end of my speech, i hope all the preparation will go well, and everyone will show their ability to the world. let us seize opportunities and give a big smile to challenges.
dear students:how are you!
in the previous several exams, i have gained good results, first of all thanks to my efforts, of course, learning is also very important. next, i gave you about my learning experience.i feel good in order to learn first-come interested in learning. as the saying goes: "interest is the best teacher." with interest will be motivated to learn, the more naturally learn better. second, in order to improve learning, we must master the correct way to learn, learn to digest, giving top priority, this is the most important. in learning, our minds must have three words - "why!" smart people know that; wise men know to listen to; smart people know to ask. the last is sure to be hard work, this is the most important, even thomas edison said "genius needs ninety-nine percent perspiration."school should seriously lectures, and pay attention to more independent thinking, do not know want to ask, to exercise their thinking skills. careful and meticulous to teacher assignments, must not be careless.
there is, to take notes, preview before clathe best, first have a preliminary understanding of the text, which for the next clacan more easily absorb. after-school must also be reviewed, and consolidate the knowledge about good teachers, and lay a solid foundation. the ancients have said: "reviewing the old, to be a teacher." not also the truth? best to pay attention to work and rest. only care about the death of reading is of no use to let my mind relax properly for the job such as playing baseball, listening to music, watch tv news.finally, i want to say "do not you go stronger than others, then you have to and they are better than weak, you challenged yourself to stay on a par before himself, and you will reap better than others."i finished the speech thank you!
LET MY SPEECH BE AN OVERTURE TO THE GRAND SYMPHONY OF MAN AND ANTURE
Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen:
When the topic “people and nature” first caught my eye, I was reminded
of a story about myself and my violin.
I began learning to play the violin when I was eight years old. At
first, it was a very hard thing for me. After my continued efforts, I was
able to play a lot of musical pieces very soon. I felt so proud of myself that I began to behave arrogantly.
My violin teacher noticed this and told me: “To be a good violin player,
you should first of all love and respect your violin. You should obey the
rules of playing it so as to make harmonious melodies. Remember, play the
violin not only with your hands, but also with your heart and soul. ”
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe that nature is to people what my violin
is to me. Isn’t it true that people deal with nature just as I play the
violin? Isn’t it true that we have been so arrogant that we take liberties
with nature, which brings about the discord between nature and ourselves?
Since my violin and I have finally reached harmony, why can’t people and
nature head toward the same direction?
Ladies and gentlemen, we cannot wait. Nor can we afford to wait until
the day when we find no city, no Hilton hotel, no lecture hall to hold any
speech contests in. Let us love and respect nature, nature that is the
violin people have played for thousands of years. Let us treasure it, and
play it with our heart and soul. Let us observe its rules while developing
our industry, modernizing our traffic system, and improving our living
conditions, so that one day, people and nature will together produce the
most beautiful and peaceful music.
On that day, I am sure to be there with my violin, to join the world
orchestra, in playing the ode to harmony, the eternal harmony between
people and nature.
Let my speech today be an overture to that grand symphony.
my favourite season
my favourite season is spring.
everything is very lively in the spring. the flowers are blooming, the trees are growing and the grass is turning green. i like lying on the grass and enjoy the sun shine in the park in the spring. we also can fly a kite, have a picnic, go on a trip or climb the mountain, but i don’t like to do those things, because they will make me feel tired. some people like to go to the countryside, however i don’t think it is a good place to go for a rest. i don’t like the other season, because they are not very warm: summer is too hot, winter is too cold. while autumn is cool, it isn’t very beautiful.
last year, i went to the slender west lake in yang zhou. first we took a boat to travel down the lake, we saw the qiong flowers on the bank, and they were very beautiful. then we visited the five kiosks bridge, there were five kiosks on the bridge, and every kiosk has a long history. we sit in the kiosk and took some photos. last we went to the fishing platform. why do people call it ‘fishing platform’? because the emperor called ‘qian long’ in qing dynasty visited it. we also fished in it. we had a good time in yang zhou.
anyway, my favourite season is spring.
