Recently, there is a heated discussion about the news that English will be remov ed from the College Entrance Examinations from 2016.Instead students can attend t he English test more than one time a year, of which the best performance will be con sidered as the final score in the Exams. As for it, different people have different opini ons.
People supporting it hold the following reasons. For one thing, they think English is t oo difficult for some students to reach the required standard. For another, it takes to o much to study it. However, some people are strongly against it. From their own ex periences, English plays a key role in their further study and career. What’s more, the reform may, in a way, impose more burdens on students rather than reduce.
As far as I am concerned, I support the reform because if so, students can decide ho w well they should learn English by themselves according to their interest and major.

As a student of your age, I understand your situation. The problem you are facing is common among our teenagers. However, it should be wise not to do anything that may hurt her feelings. Here are a few suggestions. First, it’s advisable to talk more with your mom. Heart to heart talks help you understand each other better. They are also opportunities to let her know your ideas of and attitudes toward many things.
Second, you should learn to do your own things well, proving to your mom that you are already a “Grown-up”. It’s even better if you could sha re more of the housework, such as cleaning, washing and cooking.

【答案】A possible version:
As everybody knows, Li Hua is the best student in our class and I think he is the most suitable candidate for the monitor.
Firstly, he is highly intelligent and hard working. He does extremely well in his lessons and always get A’s in all his subjects. Furthermore, he is never too proud of his achievements.
Secondly, he is warm-hearted and always ready to help others. For example, last May our classmates Zhang Ming broke his legs in a basketball match and he had to stay in bed for a month. It was Li Hua that offered to help him with lessons every day.
As a result, Zhang Ming was able to catch up with others in studies.
Thirdly, Li Hua takes an active part in all kinds of social activities, such as donating money to the children in the poor areas, helping the disabled and the old do whatever they need, and so on..
Generally speaking, Li Hua is qualified to be our monitor.
Many years ago, when I was fresh out of school , I was driving to my parents' home in Missouri for Christmas．I stopped at a gas station about 50 miles from Oklahoma City. While I was standing in line at the cash register(收款台), I said hello to an older couple who were also paying for gas．
I took off, but had gone only a few miles when black smoke poured from the back of my car．I stopped and wondered what I should do．A car pulled up behind me．It was the couple. They said they would take me．We chatted and when I got out of the car, the husband gave me his business card．I wrote them a thank-you note．Soon afterward, I received a Christmas present from them．Their note that came with it said that helping me had made their holidays meaningful．
Years later, I drove to a meeting in the morning．In late afternoon I found that I'd left the lights on all day, and the battery was dead．Then I noticed that the Friendly Ford dealership was right next door．I walked over and found two salesmen in the showroom．
"Just how friendly is Friendly Ford?" I asked and explained my trouble．They quickly drove a pickup truck to my car and started it．They would accept no payment, so later, I wrote them a note to say thanks．I received a letter back from one of the salesmen．No one had ever written him and say thank you, and it meant a lot, he said．
"Thank you" - two powerful words．They're easy to say and mean so much．
