Dear Li Fang,
We haven't seen each other for several months. I'd like to share a piece of good news with you. Last week I moved into a new apartment. The decoration was designed and partly done by myself. I'm so happy with the new apartment that I decide to hold a party to celebrate this Saturday. I hope you can come if you are available. My address is No. 46, London Street.
I will show you each room of the apartment and I am eager to hear your comments and suggestions. After that, I would treat you to dinner in a restaurant in the neighborhood. If you are available, please tell me what time you could come here. If you can't come, please let me know as well.
I am looking forward to your coming.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a speech on saving water resources. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words and base your composition on the outline given below in Chinese.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
No one can imagine what our life would be like if we ran out of water. Many people ignore the fact that they waste a lot of water in their daily life. For example, people tend to do something else while the tap is still on or even forget to turn off the tap after using it.
Not until recently did people realize the serious water shortage. It is universally acknowledged that severe water pollution and waste result in water shortage. Therefore, it is high time that the public raised their awareness of saving water resources. In my opinion, we must take effective measures to deal with this problem. For one thing, population should be controlled and more sewage treatment facilities should be established to purify the polluted water. For another, it is our responsibility to develop a good habit to save water in our daily life.
Let's work together to protect and save water resources!

To whom it may concern,
I'm writing to apply for a student loan. As a sophomore from the Chemistry Department, I have much financial difficulty in continuing my study.
My father is the only breadwinner while my mother was laid off two years ago. My grandmother has been suffering serious illness for many years. My younger brother is now studying in a high school. To support the study of my brother and me, my family has witnessed a sharp increase in the debt to an unbearable amount of ￥130 000. I took part-time jobs during the summer vacation, but what I have earned is far from enough for me to pay the required tuition fee. In order to continue my study, I have to apply for a student loan. If my request is granted, I will make good use of the money and put all my mind to study. I will definitely pay back the loan according to the requirements.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Mr. Zhang,
I would like to express my apologies for not being able to keep our 10 o'clock appointment.
I witnessed a traffic accident on my way to school. The victim was a school girl. She was hit by a car from the back and fell down from her bicycle. She was badly injured and lay unconsciously at the side of the road. It was annoying that the car driver ran away after hitting the girl. Several passersby and I took the trouble to send the girl to the hospital.
I will come over to your apartment the day after tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 9 o'clock in the morning if that is convenient for you.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a letter to complain to an online shop about a poor-quality digital product you have bought. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I'm writing to ask for a refund or an exchange for my cell phone newly bought in your online shop because it really disappoints me a lot.
First of all, obviously, the phone I received yesterday had been used by other people because I found some pictures still left in its camera, which means it is not a brand-new one. Secondly, you promised that the product would be perfectly packed but when I received it, I was shocked that it was in loose packaging and the phone was scratched. In addition, the size of the phone is not what I imagined although it's not your fault.
All in all, I'm strongly disappointed with your product and service. Thus I request a refund or at least an exchange for a perfect one. I'm looking forward to your reply.
