Protecting traditional Chinese culture is of great importance to China's cultural diversity, economic prosperity, and social development. The government in Guangdong province has made it their mission to protect Chaoju (潮剧), a local form of drama that began in Chaozhou in eastern Guangdong.
In my opinion, specific measures should be taken to protect traditional Chinese culture. To start with, we should make appropriate laws for everyone to follow. Also, we should educate people about the need to protect traditional culture. The more the public knows about it, the more support we can get.
It's time that we start treasuring our own valuable culture.

The development of science and technology has brought about many changes in people's lives.
Modern technology makes life more convenient. Using the Internet is popular nowadays. Years ago, people had to look through a lot of information just to buy what they wanted. It was easy for people to spend too much time doing research and become tired as a result. Now, all you have to do is use the Internet. It's a piece of cake!
With the development of science and technology, including high-speed transportation, video phones, and webcam meetings, the world has become smaller and smaller.
We all hope that modern technology will continue to reach the highest level, because science and technology make life more enjoyable indeed.

I'm glad I received your letter. Thank you for caring about the weather and my health. Now, I'd like to tell you something about smog.
Since winter last year, there has been a lot of smog. It has done great harm to our daily lives. Many traffic accidents happened just because of the heavy smog. Quite a few flights had to be rescheduled, and many people had to go to the doctor because of serious diseases caused by the smog.
People have realized that smog causes great harm, and people all over the country know that protecting the environment is the most important thing to do. The government suggests that people go to work or school on public transportation, such as the bus and the underground. Also we should plant more trees.
As to me, I always go to school by bike or on foot, and I never throw garbage anywhere. In addition, I will tell everyone I meet to protect the environment as much as they can. Would you like to tell me some good ideas? I'm looking forward to your reply.

Dear Mrs. Zhang,
I'm writing to express my sincere gratitude to you. You gave me a hand when it was very necessary.
One month ago, with the College Entrance Examination around the corner, I was nervous and in low spirits. I was afraid of letting my parents down because of my average academic performance. When I was at the point of giving up, you asked me to go to your office. Instead of blaming me, you comforted me and discussed with me my reasons for failing the exam. You managed to help me with my studies and always inspired me. Gradually, I learned how to make my own adjustments. Thanks to you, I stayed calm during the College Entrance Examination.
Mrs. Zhang, I'm extremely grateful for what you have done for me. I will always have hope because of you. I wish you happiness and good health.
