I live with my father and mother in a very big house in Dongguan. My parents are both very busy. They leave for work very early in the morning and don't return home until late in the evening.
When I am home on weekends from school, we spend a lot of time together. We talk about my studies, my health and my school life. I love my parents very much.
My grandparents are still living, but they don't live with us. Their health is good and they both do sports very early in the morning. My grandmother does gymnastics with elderly women her age in the park. Both of my grandfathers play basketball in the morning and sometimes they go swimming.
Chinese people eat rice for every meal, but I don't like rice because I think it is tasteless! We eat meat, fish and vegetables. My family eats noodles and congee. My favorite is noodles.
I often play computer games because I like it so much. I often watch Japanese cartoon movies with my parents on the weekends. On long holidays we take trips, too.
That is my description of typical family life in China.
he values Americans live by may seem strange to you. As a result, you might find their actions confusing, even unbelievable. This is my opinion about American Value. Whether you agree with me or not - or is willing to accept as valid any generalizations about Americans - my observations are thought-provoking. Americans do not believe in the power of fate, and they look at people who do as being backward, primitive, or naive. In the American context, to be "fatalistic" is to be superstitious, lazy, or unwilling to take initiative. Everyone should have control over whatever in the environment might potentially affect him or her. The problems of one's life are not seen as having resulted from bad luck as much as having come from one's laziness and unwillingness to take responsibility in pursuing a better life. In the American mind, change is seen as indisputably good, leading to development, improvement, progress. Many older, more traditional cultures consider change disruptive and destructive; they value stability, continuity, tradition, and ancient heritage - none of which are considered very important in the United States. Time is of utmost importance to most Americans. It is something to be on, kept, filled, saved, used, spent, wasted, lost, gained, planned, given, even killed. Americans are more concerned with getting things accomplished on time than they are with developing interpersonal relations. Their lives seem controlled by the little machines they wear on their wrists, cutting their discussions off abruptly to make their next appointment on time. This philosophy has enabled Americans to be extremely productive, and productivity Is highly valued In their country. Equality is so cherished in the U.S. that it is seen as having a religious basis. Americans believe that all people are created equal and that all should have an equal opportunity to succeed. This concept of equality is strange to seven-eighths of the world which views status and authority as desirable, even if they happen to be near the bottom of the social order. Since Americans like to treat foreigners "Just like anybody else", newcomers to the U.S. should realize that no insult or personal indignity is intended if they are treated in a less than-deferential manner by waiters in restaurants, clerks in stores and hotels, taxi drivers, and other service personnel. Americans view themselves as highly individualistic in their thoughts and actions. They resist being thought of as representatives of any homogeneous group. When they do join groups, they believe they are special. Just a little different from other members of the same group. In the U.S. you will find people freely expressing a variety of opinions anywhere and anytime. Yet, in spite of this independence, almost all Americans end up voting for one of their two major political parties. Individualism leads to privacy, which Americans see as desirable. The word privacy does not exist in many non-Western languages. If It does, it is likely to have a negative connotation, suggesting loneliness or forced isolation. It is not uncommon for Americans to say, and almost to believe: "If I don't have half an hour a day to myself, I go stark-raving mad!" Americans take credit only for what they accomplish as individuals. They get no credit for having been born into a rich family but pride themselves in having climbed the ladder of success, to whatever level, all by themselves. In an English-language dictionary, there are more than 100 composite words that have the word "self" as a prefix: self-aware. self-confident, self-conscious, self-contented, self-control, self-criticism, self-deception, self-defeating, self-denial. The equivalent of these words cannot be found in most other languages. It is an indicator of how highly Americans regard the self-made man or woman. Many other countries have developed subtle, sometimes highly ritualistic, ways of informing others of unpleasant information. Americans prefer the direct approach. They are likely to be completely honest in delivering their negative evaluations, and to consider, anything other than the most direct and open approach to be "dishonest" and "insincere". Anyone in the U.S. who uses an intermediary to deliver the message will also be considered "manipulative" and "untrustworthy". If you come from a country where saving face is important, be assured that Americans are not trying to make you lose face with their directness. As a matter of fact, the major American Value is distinct from Chinese. We ought to accept it when we communicate with Americans. Thus, we need make ourselves think globally and act locally.。
3.高中生英语演讲稿:i believe i can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly! Maybe you think that I am a crazy person or something. Well, actually “I believe I can fly” is the name of a song, which is my favorite English song. The reason why I like this song is the song brings me courage to make my dreams come true. Just like the song say “I believe I can fly! I believe I can touch the sky”. You know I still dream about being a witch like Harry Potter and live in the wizardly world, to use my powers to save the day, like stopping the World Trade center from falling down, or stopping the war on Iraq…I know being a witch is impossible, but to make our world a better place is definitely possible.
Besides being a witch I also want to be an archaeologist, an Egyptologist. I want to go to Egypt, to discover the beauty of this ancient civilization. I think about it day and night, I see myself standing beside the pyramid, and working in the desert with mummies and sarcophagus. Maybe the dream is kind of far away from me. But I believe that one day my dream will indeed come true.
Finally, I want to tell you all that I always keep saying to myself: “I believe I can fly!” And now I am standing on this stage, and I believe I can make it!
Good morning, my dear classmates! I'm very glad to have this chance to talk to you. The topic of my speech is "Let's ride a bicycle." As is known to all, with the improvement of people's living standards, cars have become a popular means of transport, bringing great convenience to our life. However, they have also caused some problems such as air pollution and traffic jams. How can we solve these problems then? As far as I'm concerned, riding bicycles is a good solution. For one thing, bicycles don't need any petrol and they are energy-saving. For another, bicycles are environmentally friendly because they won't give off waste gas. What's more, riding bicycles is a good way for us to exercise and it is beneficial to our health.Therefore, let's take the responsibility to build up a low-carbon city by riding bicycles. Come on and join us! Thank you for listening！亲爱的同学们：你们好！ 我很高兴有机会在这里和你们交谈。
时间就是金钱（Time is money）Today is May 16, 2009.There is less than a month before the college entrance examination. I still remember the day before the examination. I and you ever made great effort to realize a dream of entering a university. And now we are here.But most freshmen are dissatisfied with the life in university in the first term, before I went to university, I viewed university as a freedom paradise where I can do anything I like. But when I get here. Everything turn to be out of my imagination. I have to do a lot of homework everyday just as in senior high school. Living condition is not as good as in my expectation, food here is far from being delicious. And that is what most freshmen complain about.But I must say we should still enjoy the life in university because it is the most worthwhile in our life.Firstly ,It is the time we begin to form our outlook of our life. We attend classes, go to the library, surf the Internet. All of these provide us with valuable knowledge and information.Secondly university life is rich and colorful, without heavy task, we get more time to take a break develop some hobbies. these will surely make our life more wonderful.Finally in university we can develop our social skills as well as knowledge and wisdom necessary for hunting a job. Small organizations in school can provide a variety of opportunities of leaderships as well as teamship. Take Students Union for example. It is a place where we can get our abilities trained. All of these prepare for our future.Time is money, but money can not get back time. Four—years of college life is short in a person's life. Do not waste time any more. Try to be confident and dynamic and try to make our university life more wonderful and meaningful. Believe that we can fly and we are sing in the sky.今天是5月16日，在2009还有不到一个月前在大学入学考试。

Teachers, students: Hello! today I presentation grateful parents. The students, where we come from? hear this question, we will say, my parents took us to the world. Yes, more than 10 years ago of a certain day, our parents with tears and happy smile greeted us. But when we came to Earth in that moment, the parents but an onerous job — to take care of us. Although this is a heavy burden, but the parents but murmur dependency, I grew up. We first called father and mother, the first independent to constitute a step, for the first time and scrawls them up when the parents patiently teach us. Parents, is God give us does not require any modification of the soul. When we encountered difficulties, to give everything to help our people, is the parent. When we were hurt, patiently listening to our people, their parents. When we make a mistake when not hesitate to forgive us, are parents.

Life is not as perfect, parents of hard to understand, however, in order to give us a comfortable living environment, they are always so hard, so hard. I wonder if members would remember that the thankful heart, touching sad melody: a thankful heart, thank you know, let me have the courage to do it myself. A thankful heart, thanks to fate, the flowers I will cherish. Yes, our wonderful is the parents of our road is specified for our parents, our success is given by their parents. All in all, involve parents help us as a creator, and parents are, therefore, we must with a grateful heart to repay parents, we want to act, to our efforts to return again and again. Although we cannot live with their parents to share the hard, entrepreneurship and difficult, but we, as a secondary school student, at least you can read out to good comfort for parents that we truly worried mind. The mid-term exam is about to come, hope that students can obtain a success. Thank you, my speech has gone.。
