Lost and Found
In our daily life, we may have experiences of picking up others’ things, for example, finding a book without the owner’s name on it in the classroom, and at that time, we certainly intend to find and contact the owners to return the things. And a Lost and Found Notice will be needed. When we write the notice, we should pay attention to the followings. First, if you are writing a paper version, please avoid polluting the environment. So you cannot attach the papers here and there, instead of which you can find the special bulletin board for it. And I suggest that you can just create the notice on social mediums such as the Moments of Wechat and ask your friends to forward for you. Since the notice will be forwarded by many people, the owner can probably see it and contact with you. Second, we should write clearly the places we found the lost thing and our own contact information, then the owner can affirm if it is his or hers and contact with us directly. Certainly, when there is someone contacting with you ,just be careful and ask some details to prevent giving the lost thing to a wrong person.

The celebration of Youth Day
A: Hi, Cecelia, the Youth Day is coming. Do you know something about it?
B: Sure, Kathy. The Youth Day falls on the May 4th, and it is an important festival in China.
A: What about the origin of the festival?
B: Well, it comes from May 4th Movement launched by Beijing students in 1919, which marks the beginning of the new democratic revolution, so this festival was established to memorize the movement. People, especially the young, often participate in all sorts of activities to celebrate it. How will you spend the day?
A: I am a member of youth volunteers in our school. As usual, we will organize some social practice activities, for example, in this year we will advocate students to do the rural practice, such as cleaning, experiencing farm work and doing housework, so that the youth can learn that today's happy life is not easily won.
B: That is meaningful, today’s youth should really cherish their life. I will take part in a Poetry Reciting Competition and my topic is “The Youth”, praising the vigor and warm blood of the youth.
A: Good luck! By the way, an evening party in honor of the festival will be held on CCTV this evening. Let us enjoy it.
B: Ok , I agree.
“Youth Life”is a topic frequently mentioned. Whenever it comes to the youth, many people feel sad about it. However, from my perspective, youth life is the most wonderful period in one’s life. Although we feel heart-broken sometimes, we laugh more and grow up through these painful experiences. In a word, we are still young and should seize the moment. As a college student in a new era, we are supposed to cherish the youth, which means seizing every minute to learn, reading good books, learning every bit of knowledge. Idling about all day is not the thing we should do. Instead, finding the goal of our life and achieving it are what matters. Although youth elapses fast, we can also seize it.
As we all know, since we live in a society made up of numerous people, we cannot do everything independently without being helped by others, and we should also give our hands when needed. And the kinds of help can range from handing over something to others to donating money to the ones in need. In my opinion, helping others has following benefits.
First, when helping others, we can obtain the sense of being demanded, which is a kind of happiness. Generally, when somebody seeks help from us and we offer our supports to him, it will be a success for us since we can do something for others and they will be happier due to us. To make our friends, families, or even the strangers happy can be very satisfactory for ourselves.
Secondly, the help is interactive since when we have difficulties, others will also help us. Helping others is a good way to make friends. If we just live with neglecting others’ needs and appeals, they will also do us the same and we will live a lonely life without just a friend.
Therefore, helping others can be advantageous for both ourselves and other people, and we should do our best to help people in need.

There are more and more animals endangered nowadays, birds are no exceptional. Many kinds of birds died out in the past decades and many other kinds of birds are in peril of extinction because of human’s destruction of their natural habitat. As the economy develops, humans exploit all kinds of resources, causing air pollution and forest degradation. Without their habitat, birds can go nowhere, their number decrease draftily every minute. It’s urgent to protect birds. First, we must make concerning laws to protect birds in danger and punish those who break the laws severely. Second, we must take some measures, like refusing to buy products made from valuable and rare birds to protect birds effectively. As the saying goes: no buying, no killing. Birds are our friends and part of our environment. Third, we should raise people’s awareness to protect birds and our environment.
