Once upon a time a farmer who felt unhappy with the slow growth of the seedlings,went to the field and pulled them up a bit one by one Returning home he told his family,"l am exhausted today! However, I finally made those seed lings grow taller all at once." His son hurried to the field only to find that the seedlings had died out.
Nowadays, some parents are so eager for their children's success that they will repeat the tragedy of the farmer making their kids suffer greatly and meanwhile seeing no progress of them. Should such parents wake up to this reality and give their children space for natural growth?
Once upon a time, a man, who kept a flock of sheep, was ready to herd them when he noticed one of them was gone.Observing carefully, he saw a hole in the sheepfold. Obviously, a wolf must have got in and taken the sheep away. His neighbour advised him to fix the sheepfold, but he would n' t listen only to find the next day that another dp sheep was carried away by the wolf. Remembering his neighour 'e s words, he hurried to repair the sheepfold by plugging the hole. Since then, no sheep was missing in this way ever again.
The story tells us: if we solve the problem in time, we can prevent ourselves from suffering bigger loss.
Once upon a time, a farmer, who was working in the field,suddenly saw a hare running past, hitting a large tree and killing itself. He was so pleased to eat its meat easily that he thought,。 "What a wonderful thing to have this all the time!"From then on, he stopped working and waited by the tree for more hares that would crash. He waited and waited one day after another, in vain, only to have a deserted field. Therefore, people laughed at him for taking the accidental for the inevitable.
Directions: Suppose you are writing a proposal to your school library about improving it' s services, you are writing about its current problems and solutions.
Dear Sir or Madam,I hope you are doing great! I am Li Ming, one of the sophomore students in our university. Following my recent experience of using our school library, | have decided to send you some feed back. In the first place, the librarians there are not very friendly and helpful as they often fail to tell us where to find the book we want, and moreover get impatient easily. What' s more, the books available in the library are too old to catch up with the latest development of related disciplines. Finally, the reading rooms are not bright enough as some of the lights have gone dark. All these have brought great inconvenience to us students, which leaves me with no choice but to write you this letter.
From my perspective, it would be wise for you to offer all the librarians a training course to familiarize them with the layout of the library and the classifications of the books. If possible, I sincerely hope that you consider the possibility of renewing some of the books and maintaining the facilities properly.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Look forward to your favorable reply.
Write proposals for the service of Students Union//The Federation of Students.
I hope you are doing great!I am Li Ming one of the sophomore students in our university.I saw that our Student Union posted a notice collecting advice about enriching extracurricular activities, so I am writing this letter to make some suggestions.
First, could you organize more sports activities?Now there is only one annual school-wide sports meet and I believe both the variety and the frequency of such events can be increased Second, it might be a good idea for our students to engage in more social activities which can broaden their horizons and improve their sense of responsibilities.The Student Union can recruit volunteers to aid rural Project Hope primary schools go to nursing homes to visit elderly people and raise funds to help disadvantaged groups Besides I suggest that more distinguished experts and scholars in distinct fields be invited to de liver speeches to our students.Last year the Student Union organized a couple of forums and lectures,which received wide acclaim from both students and teachers in our school
Thank you for your time, and I believe our Student Union will play in bigger role in enriching our students'mind by organizing colorful and diversified extracurricular activities.
Write proposals for the service of school hospital
Dear Sir or Madam,
I hope you are doing great. I am Li Ming, a sophomore majoring in English language education. | am writing to make suggestions on making an application for improving our school clinic' s services.
The first feature of the application is a website that enables students to express their dissatisfaction about the doctor' s attitude. Due to the large number of patients, it is quite easy for students to encounter the doctor's impatience, which leads to mental discomfort in the process of seeing a doctor.Moreover, booking a doctor in advance is another useful aspect of this application. With the help of this feature, students can avoid wasting time waiting for the call of doctors, a g because they need to arrive in the clinic at the time they because they need to arrive in the clinic at the time they booked before.
Thank you for your consideration and I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
