Good morning, ladies and gentleman, welcome to Beijing. To begin with,
I would like to introduce myself: I am the tourist guide from China
Travel Service and it’s great honor to stay here with all of you for
a whole day. Just as the old saying goes, “It is always a pleasure
to greet a friend from far away”， I wish all of you to enjoy yourselves
during this trip.
The following is schedule of the day. The first spot we are going
to visit is the Great Wall, the grandest fortification in ancient
China. The next sight to look around is the Ming Tombs, which is one
of the best-preserved tombs for 13 emperors in Ming Dynasty more than

Palace, the royal park for Chinese ancient emperors.
Currently we are on the way to the Great Wall. Dating back to the
seven century B.C., the Great Wall is constructed by respective states
for fortifying against invasion of neighboring states. By the reasons
of long history and its length, it becomes one of the eight wonders
in the world and represents the highest wisdom and crafts. From the
top of the Great Wall, we can enjoy a magnificent view of continuous
mountains, green trees and blooming wild flowers. It is no doubt that

Above is my introduction to the Great Wall. If any of you have questions,
please feel free to ask me at any time.

When it comes to which major you should choose, I propose that you
apply for the major of English. To begin with, English is the most
popular language in the world, which is widely used in all fields
such as teaching, translation, foreign trade and so on. What’s more,
it goes without saying that English majors are more likely to find
a good job in the tighter and tighter job market.
In order to study at English Department, you have to meet the following
requirements. In the first place, you have to spend a lot of time
on it, just as the old saying goes, “Practice makes perfect”. In the
second place, the basic skills of reading, writing, listening and
speaking are necessary, because they are the foundations for your
future study. Last but not the least important, you need an intense
interest in learning English since “interest is the best teacher.”
As far as the preparation work is concerned, you should first of
all review all the required vocabulary. In addition, you’d better
spend some time on reading and writing. Only through these measures
can you hope to enroll in our university.

I am writing this letter to reflect some problems I came across
This weekend I bought an English-Chinese dictionary in a bookstore
near my home since its cover is elaborately designed. But when I went
home and read carefully, I found that the several pages of the dictionary
had been cracked. What is worse, the misprints spread everywhere in
the dictionary and seriously affected my comprehension. Since there
was such damage and misprint to the dictionary, I went to the bookstore
to require for a replace. But to my surprise, the staff of the bookstore
turned down my request rudely and even denied the poor quality of
It goes without saying that today’s face-paced and market-oriented
economy calls for much higher standard for service industry. However,
to my regret, many of the commercial organizations fail to achieve
this standard and the quality of the staff needs to be improved. It’s
clear that the poor quality of practitioners in the service industry
will not only deeply disappoint customers but also ruin the development
of our country’s economy. As a result, I hope your newspaper could
remind the service industry to attach more importance to the service
Thank you for your attention!
Reduce Waste on Campus
As it is known to all, waste on campus has become a more and more
serious problem. We can easily see many students dump a lot of food
in the garbage can. Some students spend thousands of yuan buying fashionable
clothes and so on.
The negative effects of waste can be shown in the following aspects.
In the first place, it makes some students dependent on their parents
for money, which is harmful to their development. If they don’t learn
to support themselves, they will be “useless people” when they graduate.
In the second place, it is not easy for our parents to arrange for
our schooling. Last but not the least important, there is no denying
the fact that our country is still poor. There are many people who
cannot go to university and many poor people still need our help.
As far as I am concerned, I should set a good example to reduce
waste on campus. First of all, I will refrain from wasting anything,
from food to stationery. What’s more, I’m determined to call on more
schoolmates to fight against waste. Only through these measures can
we hope to reduce waste on campus.
