We talked about the advantages and disadvantages of internet shopping these days. Some students think it's very convenient for us to go shopping on the internet. The shops on Internet ，for example taobao.com, 360buy.com are open for almost 24 hours a day, so we can buy something we want at any time if we like. What's more, we needn't to wait in a queue。
However, some students disagreed with them. We can't see the things while we are shopping. So we are not sure whether they are good or not.. Besides, we can't enjoy the happiness of shopping with our friends。

My low-carbon life
Now the human living environment is becoming worse and worse。 So a new lifestyle called low-carbon life is spreading to every part of our country。 As middle school students， how can we have a low-carbon life?
Firstly， we can go to school on foot or by bike。 Secondly， we shouldn’t waste water or electricity。 Do remember to turn off the lights when we leave the room and turn off the tap in time after using it。 Thirdly， we should use cloth bags in our daily life instead of plastic ones。 Fourthly， we should also make full use of paper。 We’d better recycle some of our textbooks。
It’s important for us to live a low-carbon life to protect the environment。
假设不久前你们学校为贫困地区的孩子们筹款举办了一次慈善行活动。请据此在制定的位置上，以“Walk for children in poor areas”为题，为某中学生英文报写一篇报道，内容要点如下：
Walk for children in poor areas
Not long ago, our school organized a charity walk to raise money for children in poor areas.
It was on Saturday, 23 rd October. We walked from the school to the centre of the city. Before the walk, we grouped ourselves into a team of four and planned everything well. It was a hard (tough) work. But during the walk, we supported and helped each other. With the help of many people, we raised over (more than) 50,000 yuan in the end.
We all felt tired, but we were very happy. Because it was a meaningful experience and it was an excellent chance to learn team spirit.
为配合我市开展“创建文明城市(build a civilized city)”活动，学校举办以“How to Behave Well”为主题的英语征文比赛。现在请你根据所给提示内容，用英语写一篇参赛短文。
How to Behave Well?
In order to build a civilized city, we students should try our best to behave well in the activities.
It's a good habit to keep our clothes clean and tidy. Our city should be kept clean every day. Don't throw litter or spit about. It's good manners to say "Thank you" and "Please" and so on. We should never say dirty words. Be friendly to others and always ready to help the people in need. For example, when we are on a bus, we should give our seats to the old and the women with babies. We should also obey traffic rules. When the traffic lights are red, we should stop. And we'd better not talk or laugh loudly in public.
If everyone behaves well, our city will be more beautiful and more attractive.
Almost all of us heard the story “Here Comes the Wolf” when we were little kids. What we can learn from the story is that we must be honest. However, there're lots of phenomena of dishonesty nowadays.
Being dishonest does great harm not only to other people but also to yourself. Take the case of fake milk powder for example. After drinking this kind of milk, the babies had big heads while their legs and arms were still thin, which badly affected their health. To our great relief, the producers got accused and punished for all the serious consequences in the end.
Having the reputation of being honest and reliable will make other people trust you, which will provide you many benefits and give you opportunities that others may not get. Being honest, you will find it easier to cooperate with others and people will be friendly to you and support you. In a sense, if life is a longjourney, honesty will be the backpack that should be taken along all the way.
Let's pick up our “backpack”—honesty, and start the wonderful journey!
In nowadays, it is quite common that we compete with each other for various competitions. However, it is also essential for people to cooperate with each other for we are members of society. When confront with cooperation and competition, people seems to have a difficult time in choosing them. Some people tend to compete with each other for they believe they can win rewards by defeating others. Some hold that we should cooperate with each other. Some think that we should not only cooperate with others but we should compete with others as well. In my opinion, I think that competing is more important for us. Reasons are listed below.
First of all, competing is more important than cooperation in our society. In school, we compete with others by doing better in our study. When we are looking for jobs, we compete with others applying for the same position. When we go to a competition, we fight with others for rewards or fame.
Secondly, we can be stronger by competing. If we want to win others, then we have to be stronger than others. Thus, we have to improve ourselves constantly. Consequently, our skills will be enhanced and we will get more experience to avoid failure.
In conclusion, competition plays an important role in our society as well as we can become stronger.
