4. Keep or not the old building in the city？（是否该保留古老建筑）
I' hold the opinion that we should keep most of the old buildings in the city. I admit that some of the old buildings are a bit dilapidated right now. But the issue is bigger than that. If we destroy the old buildings, we will be destroying an important piece of the history. The buildings many experienced many events and famous celebrities might live in it. They are the memory of the things in the past. And it wouldn't be all that difficult to fix them up either. However, there are some old buildings which have less value could be torn down for the city development.
The place I usually go to is a seashore park in my city. When I was a child, my parents always bring me there and I had a lot of enjoyments. Then I grew up, but I still consider it a wonderful place. The life near the seashore is really comfortable, for the sky there is blue and always full of sunshine, seabirds are singing and the ocean breeze is blowing. I swam in the sea and lie on the beach for a rest. Moreover, I tasted sea food such as lobsters, crabs and fish there. The moment I have at sea shore is really impressive, and because of this, I would like to go there.
Well, one of my important places is my room. First of all, I have a lot of enjoyment in my room. I enjoy using computer in my room.

I also read magazines and other publics and sometimes cut down the pictures on them to the wall, these make my room a place full of enjoyment. Second, I study and read books. These make me more knowledgeable and experienced. So you see, I obtain enjoyment and gain ability in my room. Basing on these factors I say that I enjoy the time spend in my room and I like it so much.
7. Important gift, why important？ (一件重要的礼物)
An important gift I have ever received is a Nike basketball from my parents on my 16 years old birthday. The gift is important to me because I really like playing basketball and I never have a high quality basketball before. So after I receive this gift, I always bring it to sport stadiums and play with teammates. It has a high quality that we have played it for such long time and not only I and also my friends obtained a lot of enjoyment. Furthermore, it is important because I get to know that my parents are always thinking of what I what, what I like to do, and this really makes me moved and I gain a lot of power to study better and repay them.
8. Describe one of your challenging experiences （描述你的一个刺激/惊险/难忘的经历）
One of my challenging experiences is to prepare for the TOEFL test. I am a high school student and I find TOEFL test is lot more difficult than the text in my school, so it is really a challenge for me. Some times I try to recite a hundred words in a day. Sometimes I read long articles and just don’t know what they are talking about. However, when facing with these difficulties, I never give up. What I have done is to keep reciting words and read more articles in order to have a better understanding of them. After a month, I find that I have improved my ability in English, and I am more confident now facing TOEFL test.

I am willing to get information though the internet. First, I think getting news from internet is an easy way, what we need to do is just move the mouse, which means we don’t need to go out to buy newspaper.

Third, using internet to get the information is also benefit to our environment, because it doesn’t need papers and ink, so fewer trees with by cut down and fewer rivers will be polluted.

Well, I prefer also enjoying the view on our way. First of all, I think my purpose to travel is to enjoy the beautiful scenery, whatever at the destination or on the way, so we should also spend time of the scenery on the way if they are beautiful and worth to see.
