1、What necessary things you will bring when going out?
First I would bring my cellphone. I think I can’t live without it now. I would use it to contact with my friends and take pictures. Another thing I would bring is Kindle. I would take it out when I’m waiting for the bus.
2、Will you bring different things in the daytime or at night?
Well actually there is not much difference except that I would bring a smaller bag at night. It is easy to take. After all, sometimes it is pretty hard to get a cab at night so I would prefer to take a lighter bag.
Describe an enjoyable experience you had in the countryside. You should say:
when and where you went;
who you went with;
what you did there;
and explain why you think it was enjoyable.
Talking about the enjoyable experience I had in the countryside, I think the childhood experience that I went to my grandparents’ house which is located in a small village in the north of China is a one. I remembered that my mother would take me to visit my grandparents every few years and the visit usually happened in summer holidays. The house had a big yard. And there was a brook behind the house. My grandparents kept two dogs in the big yard. They are adorable. My grandma planted two apple trees. The green apples were always on the tree when I went there every summer. I always begged my grandma to pick them for me to have a taste even if she told me that they would taste badly. I often dropped the apple after one bite. But my grandma was never angry with that. After supper, my grandpa took me to the brook behind the house. He said we could catch a big fish before the moon came out. However, we didn’t catch any fish at all.
The experiences were valuable and wonderful. They are of great importance in my life. Especially after my grandparents passed away, I have no opportunity to go back to the village any more. The memories kept the temperature of my grandparents’ love, and I cherish them very much.
①Do young people enjoy living in the countryside?
Well it depends. Many young people prefer to live in the countryside because the house price there is much cheaper. With the same amount of money, they may only buy a small house in the city but a pretty big one in the countryside. Besides, it is much more pleasant to stay close to nature. Just imagine, people could wake up with the chirp of birds. When they are tired, they can have a walk along the river. How pleasant it is! But many other young people may prefer to live in the city. There are more entertainment activities there. The infrastructure is more complete and life is more convenient. People can buy anything they want.
②Do old people prefer to live in the countryside or in the city?
Well it depends. Many old people prefer to live in the countryside where the life pace is much slower and the air is fresher. They don’t need to get in a hurry for everything like people in the city usually do. They can plant vegetables in the yard and keep a dog or a cat. When they are bored, they can have a walk and stay close to nature. They can go fishing or climb the mountain. But there are also many old people who prefer to live in the city. They believe life is more convenient in the city. They could find anything they need in the nearby supermarket. Besides, they can enjoy a better medical service there.
③Why do many people move from small towns to big cities?
Nowadays it is very common for people to move from small towns to big cities. They have made this decision for many different reasons. For the children, they can enjoy a better education there. There are more schools and training centers in the big cities. No matter what they are interested in, they can always find a teacher. For young people, big cities provide them with more job opportunities. They are more likely to find a job there. They also face more challenges in big cities, which means they could learn more. For old people, they can enjoy a better medical service in the city. The infrastructure is much better there. They could go to parks or attend the college for elders if they are bored. These activities make their life more colorful.
④What’s the difference between living in the countryside and living in the city?
I think people who live in the countryside are more likely to get close with each other. The population is denser in the city than in the countryside. Every day we meet a lot of people on the way to school, to work or in the mall, but it never occurred to us to say hi to these people. When we get back home, we would close the door and we hardly know who live across us. But to people who live in the countryside, they meet fewer people everyday and the number of residents is much fewer. They usually go to the same store or the same restaurant, so they are pretty familiar with each other.
