General appearance My next door neighbor is a middle aged woman. She's very smart and elegant, always well-dressed; her husband is quite the opposite, very scruffy and untidy-looking.

He's inherited all the good things from his parents: big eyes, a pointed nose and good skin.

My father is in his late fifties. He is a short and stout man with a pot belly. He's got small eyes and a big nose. He wears a pair of glasses. My father was a policeman. He used to be strong and quick but since he retired, he has put on much weight.

My aunt is a petite woman who is about 155cm tall. She is 2 years younger than my mum. People often mistake my aunt for my mum. They both have the same pointed nose and high cheekbones. When I last saw my brother, he was a lanky eighteen-year-old with scruffy, long hair and a thin moustache that looked silly. He was shy.

PART ONE Sample Answers (These sample answers are for your reference only.) 2. Does your name have any special meaning? Well, I am not sure. I guess there is something special about it, but I never asked my grandpa this question. He is the person who gave me my name. Well, I don't know. It's just a very common girl name. Actually, I was somewhat annoyed back in high school. People always mistook me for another girl in my class who had exactly the same name. 3. Why do some people change their name? To be frank, I don't know why but I can only assume that they are not very happy with their names given by others. They want to be in control of everything in their life. 12. What are the advantages of studying instead of working? When studying, I only had to worry about my exams. But now, I have to worry about my unpaid bills, my mortgage and my children's exams. 19. Do you agree that there should be a world language for everyone? Yeah, I can't agree more. I really feel it's a huge waste of time to learn a second language from other country when we can work out a way for everyone to speak the same language. I think Esperanto is a great idea. 21. Do you agree that people will get married even later in the future? Why? I strongly feel that people are on the way to that, but it's difficult to explain the reason. Maybe it's probably the increasing geographic mobility that makes we feel we have more choices when it comes to dating and marrying, so we keep thinking we can find someone better than we have. Yes, I believe so. Personally, I think people marry later partially because of a decline in the belief of a firm and long-term commitment. What's more, living together without getting married is no longer considered disgraceful by young people, so the question for them is "why should we get married if we can live together without a wedding?" 49. Do you have brothers or sisters? No. I don't have brothers or sisters. Actually, I am the only child in my family. You know, most of the people about my age are the only child in their family,

which is mainly due to the birth control policy in China.

55. Do you prefer to live in a small family or in a large family? Well, I don't really care whether it's large or small, as long as I stay with my beloved family. Just as the saying goes, "You don't choose your family. That's the God's gift to you, as you are to them." It's true that people living in a smaller family enjoy more mobility and independence, but if I get to choose, I would prefer a large family with relatives caring for, loving and supporting each other, which I think is more important to me. 60. Do you live in a flat or a house? Well, I live in a flat. It's a kind of old building which has been converted into a six-floor flat house. And I live on the third floor. 64. Can you describe the community you live? I moved to my new apartment only about a year ago. My community is a relatively new residential area with several high-rises around. To be frank, I don't even know my next-door neighbor. It seems that people all keep to themselves, which is not what I like about my community. 70. Why are holidays important to you? Having a holiday is taking a break. During holidays I can do something I really I want to do, say reading a book I didn't finish 2 years ago or hanging around with friends to catch up things. 87. How has housework changed in your family in the past few years? Obviously, household chores are no longer for women exclusively. Men are increasingly aware of the significance of sharing housework with their wives, which is beneficial for the family harmony. 88. What's your favorite sport? I'm very into basketball, you know. I'm a huge fan of Michael Jordon. Playing basketball is a lot of fun. For example, you get to meet new friends. 89. Why is exercise good for you? It is without doubt that doing exercise can be very rewarding. It helps to control body weight, maintain strength and improve immunity. What's more, doing exercise helps to develop co-ordination and team spirit. 99. Why do you think some people are very into extreme sports? I think the fear that drives many people away from the risks of extreme sports

may be the same ingredient that keeps others coming back for more. For some, life is all about adventures, risks and challenges.

106. Can we learn more from television or from books? Both are educational, I believe. Television appeals to young teenagers more, whereas books are attracted to older people. Personally, I'm more into reading. Just like what people say, "if you read a lot of books, you're considered well-read; but if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well-viewed. 121. What do you think are healthy foods? Vegetables, of course. All vegetables are naturally low in fat and full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Actually, vegetables are a must on my diet. To be frank, I don't really see the point of arranging foods into a "healthy food" class or an "unhealthy food" class. What we should realize is that it is our choice of food and our eating habit that really matters. So I feel it is really unfair to describe pizza, chips and ice cream as junk food. Without them, eating seems to be less fun. 123. Can you consider why fast food restaurants in your town are popular? It's true that fast food restaurants like KFC and McDonald's are very popular here. They can be found on almost all high streets. I guess people are always ready to try some exotic foods from other countries. And these western fast food restaurants are clean, casual and comfortable, which have become fashionable social bases. 131. Can you consider the difference between men and women in their shopping habits? Concerning shopping, I think men and women hold distinct attitude. For men, shopping happens when their socks wear out. However, women shop even if the wardrobes are full. Apparently, women's desire to shop is endless and this is something men can never understand. 139. Is it helpful to teach music courses in high school? Certainly. It makes a good compensation for other courses like math and physics, which I think are very dull and boring. Singing together with my schoolmates is much more fun. 140. Are there any negative effects if children are taught to play a musical instrument? Well, it is hard to say. Personally, I believe that it is undoubtedly of great benefit to a child's musical development. However, some children who are forced by their parents to play a musical instrument don't really think so. I

guess they have their reasons.

149. How do the old people look at young people fashion? If you ask me, though I haven't hit 50, I think a daringly fashionable miniskirt is always considered dangerously inappropriate by old people. But I can see why they have strong reaction. Once you hit 50, it is time to think twice about miniskirts. 151. What do you think of the fashion today? "Unexplainable" is the only word for me to explain fashion. But I do feel there are many people strongly influenced by it, otherwise there won't be so many fashion victims walking on the streets, who wear unreasonably expensive clothes but look perfectly ridiculous. 164. In what ways has tourism changed your country? I'm not so sure but by attracting more foreign visitors, tourism helps to boost economy and create more jobs. At the same time, in order to enhance the city's image, the government pays more attention to the renovation and maintenance of the infrastructure. So tourism benefits not only individuals but a country as well. 168. What is the public transport like your town? I reckon the choices of public transport are sufficient here in the town. There are taxi, bus and subway which is a relatively newcomer. However, like most of the other big cities, traffic congestion was and is a serious problem. Now with the government's urge to revitalize automobile industry, the number of private cars is dramatically increasing, which makes the present problem even worse. 169. How do you think it could be improved? This is a question needing quite some consideration. As far as I'm concerned, what sounds more feasible at the moment is to discourage private car driving but to schedule more public transport like buses. 184. Can you consider any negative effects watching TV might cause? Undoubtedly, TV entertains people. However, TV violence is what worries parents most. In order to attract and hold audiences, TV violence has become so graphic that children may be more likely to behave in aggressive or harmful ways towards others. The effects of television seem to be more intensive on younger viewers. The more time children spend watching TV, the less time they are spending doing other important activities like reading, getting exercise, being outdoors and talking with families. Consequently children have such problems like lower reading scores, obesity and poor physical fitness.

190. Do you think festivals are important for a country? Yes, I think so. Every country has traditional festivals. These festivals, apart from its religious importance, also help in creating social, cultural and emotional bonds among people. Besides, people get to have holidays during big festivals like Chinese New Year. 192. How do you compare the Chinese festivals with the western festivals? As far as I know, western festivals are counted according to solar calendar, whereas Chinese festivals use lunar calendar. That's why Chinese New Year is not the first day of the year on solar calendar. One another difference is that Chinese festivals are not as religious as the western ones. 196. Do you agree that weather could affect people's mood or personality? I think so. From what I read in the book, when we are exposed to sunlight, our body makes lots of Vitamin, which produce a substance in the brain to affect our mood. If we don't have enough of this substance, we can become depressed. I guess certain amount of sunbath makes us happier. 201. How do you usually make friends? Frankly speaking, I'm not the sort of person who always takes the initiative to say hi to a total stranger. So most of my high school and college friends are either my next seat fellow or dorm mate. It is the geography that makes people and me much closer. 203. Do you think friends are important to your life? Certainly. Friends are not only those who we have fun with; they are the people we turn to for help. Besides, our relationships with friends partially determine our preferences, attitudes and values. Friends always share something in common. 206. What is the relationship between colors and personality? I firmly believe that different personality types are influenced by different shades of colors. I think those outgoing and enthusiastic people prefer warm colors like yellow, peach and beige. For those sensitive and shy people, blue and purple are their favorites.

The person I like most in my family is my mother. My mum is a petite woman with short wavy hair. She is in her mid 40s but still looks quite young for her age. My mum works in a primary school. She teaches Chinese. She is very patient and gentle so the children in the school love her and so do the neighbor kids. When staying with young children, my mum always looks young and passionate. People all say that I look like my mum more than my father. I have got my mother's big eyes and high cheekbones. In many ways, we share many interests in common. We both like listening to pop music and watching comedies. On weekends, we often go shopping together. But we are also different. My mum fancies exotic plants and she loves gardening. Our balcony is always green throughout the year. But I have no idea about gardening, no interest at all. To me, my mum sometime is more like a friend. We share many things and do a lot of things together. She is very supportive and encouraging. She always gives me advice on my study and work but she never controls me. She lets me choose my own path in my life. So, yes, my mum is the one I like most in my family. Describe a person you admire. Describe a family member you are close to. The person I admire is my father. My father is a stocky man of average height. He is in his mid fifties. He's got small eyes and wears a moustache. He is also going a bit thin on top. In fact, he is going bald. My father is not attractive but he is the person who has always provided encouragement and support for my family. He displays strength and toughness but has never failed to express his love for me and my mother. He is very sincere and loyal to his friends and family. He is not a rich man but he has provided well for his family by working hard. My father has made huge sacrifices to save enough money to educate me through university and to buy a good apartment in the city centre. My father lives a small but valuable life. In my mind, he is a great man with many outstanding qualities.

Describe your family. I live in a big family. By saying "big", I mean I live with my parents and grandparents. It's not common nowadays to live with grandparents but I do enjoy it. My grandparents are very close. From the old pictures, I find that my grandmother was a very enchanting young lady. She and my grandfather get on like a house on fire, a very enviable couple. Looking at my grandfather, my father and me, you can see a strong family likeness there. We've all got the same big nose. I take after my father both in looks and character. A real chip off the old block. My mum always says I get my quick temper from my father. My father was a policeman before retirement. He used to be strong and well-built, but now he has put on much weight and looks slightly tubby. Actually my grandparents have four children. My father is the youngest and he has two big brothers and an elder sister. They all live too far away from us so we very rarely see them. But we still gather together on some big holidays. Describe a teacher. My English teacher is about 30 years old. He is tall and thin, slightly tanned with a small brown mole on his left cheek. He's got short frizzy hair without parting. He has small eyes and wears spectacles. He always wears a friendly smile. He doesn't have a very appealing face, but he can capture your attention the first time you meet him. He has such great sense of humor and he seems to be able to make any plain words interesting. I still remember a lot of funny jokes he told us in his class. Listening to his lecture is never a disappointment. Describe a person you work with. Describe your boss. I still remember the time I got my first job. My first boss was very impressive. He is a middle-aged man, well-groomed, clean-shaven and looks decent. He wears a pair of glasses. The first time I met him, he appeared to be nice and easy-going. But once I worked for him, I found myself totally wrong about him. Appearance can be really deceptive. He actually was a very tough man. He's never generous to any mistakes, even to those teeny weenies. He was so unpredictable and unfathomable that you never knew what he was thinking about, which made him more intimidating. Apart from these, he was still a good boss. He was a man with priority in order and I did learn to work efficiently and under pressure. There were some hard times working for him, but you could always feel the push and see your self-improvement.

Describe a neighbor. There is a little girl and her parents living next door to my apartment. I got to know this little girl about three months after their moving in. I still remember that day when she found herself locked outside the door after school because she forgot to take keys with her. I invited her to my apartment and then we knew each other. She is 11 years old. She always ties a ponytail with a ribbon on it. She is a lovely chubby girl with big eyes and bushy eyebrows. What she hates most about her face are the freckles all over her cheeks, although I find them really cute. She always complains to me about those brown spots and afraid that she has to wear heavy make-up when she grows up. It's very funny

Describe a famous person/public figure/celebrity. Describe a person you admire. David Copperfield He is the greatest magician of our time. To me, he is a legend. David Copperfield has redefined magic as a performing art rather than mere visual tricks. His performances are so amazing and so incredible that you cannot even believe your eyes. He vanished an airplane at the witness of astonished viewers. He successfully walked right through the Great Wall. He levitated himself across the Grand Canyon. To him, passion and imagination are everything. Just as he said, "The secret is to consider nothing impossible." And one another reason why I am such a huge fan of him is that he is undoubtedly handsome. If I could imagine, I really want to know the secrets of his magic. Describe a movie star you like. Describe your favorite actor or actress. Tom Hanks I'm a huge fan of Tom Hanks. He is my favourite actor. The moment I got to know about him was from one of his most successful acting in "Forrest Gump". In the movie he played one of his best roles as a simple, decent and honest man whose body grew to maturity but remained a child in heart and spirit. Tom's performance was very impressive. His brilliant acting made the character so convincing and memorable that I sometimes almost believed that Tom was playing himself in this movie. I always had the same feeling each time I enjoyed Tom Hank's movie, "Philadelphia", "Sleepless in Seattle", "Saving Private Ryan", "You've got mail", "Cast away", "Band of Brothers". There is no doubt of his acting ability. And one another reason I am completely taken by him is that he is the epitome of a nice man, a strong willed and determined hero in men's eyes, a lovable and charming man in women's eyes.

Describe a character in a movie/book. Describe your favourite book. Describe a child you know. Describe your favourite movie. Harry Potter is an ordinary-looking boy, fair skinned, wearing glasses and carrying a strong British accent. He is no different from other boys in the school of Hogwarts. Walking in the crowd, it is even difficult to recognize him. The mark that made him someone not so ordinary is the scar on his forehead. Harry is an intelligent, brave and athletic boy who displays a strong curiosity and determination to uncover some big secrets and mystery behind his parents' death. I've never read a children's book that gripped my imagination or made me emotional so much. It seems to me that the books are 100% interactive - you find yourself smiling, being surprised and irritated, with the characters as you read their breath-taking adventures. Reading, the least-fun activity for many children has been redefined because of this boy. Nowadays, it is very popular for children as well as their parents to read and talk about what happened in the books about Harry. It is amazing, isn't it? Describe your favorite food. Jiaozi (Chinese Dumpling) I am going to say something about Cihnese dumpling, or Jiaozi in Chinese. Jiaozi (Chinese Dumpling) is a very traditional Chinese Food, which is essential during holidays like Chinese New Year especially in Northern China. It is a very delicious food. You can make a variety of Chinese dumplings using different fillings based on your taste and how various ingredients. Usually when you have Chinese dumpling for dinner, you will not have to cook anything else. The dumpling itself is good enough for dinner. This is one of the advantages of Chinese dumpling over other foods, though it may take longer to make them. Making dumplings is really teamwork. Usually all family members join the work. Someone makes the filling; someone makes the dough and others roll skins. I am very good at rolling skins, which is the trickiest part. It is a lot of fun. Relatives catch up things when they are making dumplings. Children run all around, shouting and playing with each other. Recipes There are several stages. The first one is to make the dough. Put flour on a clear surface in a heap and pour water into it until it makes a flexible dough. Then you have to knead it for a while until it flexible and not too sticky. Then you go to the second stage which is to prepare the filling. It's quite variable but usually finely minced pork and leek or whatever green vegetable is available. You have to chop the filling ingredients very fine on a chopping board. And

then you mix the vegetable well into the pork. Next, you go on to rolling out the skins. This is the tricky part. It's best to get them pretty thin and roll out rough circles. The next move is to fill in dumpling. You only put quite a small amount of filling on the dough and then fold together the edges of the skin to form a half moon shape, and press the edges well together. It's important to seal the edges well because otherwise the Jiaozi may lose their filling when you cook them. And the last stage is to cook them, or more precisely, to boil them in the water. When the dumplings float on the water, just scoop up them. And ready to eat. Don't forget to have a dip in the vinegar or whatever sauce you like. Stuffed mushroom This is a traditional German home dish. The main ingredients are medium-sized mushroom, pork and veal mince. Usually half pork and half veal, or as you like. If you can't get them minced, of course, you have to buy the meat and mince it yourself. Then you peel and finely chop an onion and a couple of ginger slices. Put the meat, onion and gingers in a bowl, add a spoon of soy sauce, 3 teaspoons of cornflower, a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper, and mix well. Then you wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. Fill the cavity of the mushrooms with the meat stuffing and mound the filling in the center. When that's done you melt some butter or other fat in an ovenproof dish and place the stuffed mushrooms in it. Cover the dish with a lid. Then bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes. Then you remove the lid and bake the dish for another 15 minutes. As soon as you take the mushrooms out of the oven, you drain off the juices in the pan. Ready to serve. Kung Pao Chicken I am going to describe a very famous Sichuan dish called Kung Pao Chicken, which is one of my favourites. Actually this dish is so famous that it is not long popular in China, it's also highly recommended by many foreign friends I know. It tastes very delicious. If you prefer strong spicy taste, you will love it. The main ingredients are boneless chicken, red and green peppers, peanuts and chestnuts. This is how we usually cook Kung Pao Chicken. First of all, cut chicken into biteable pieces and then mix together with cornstarch, soy sauce and egg white in a bowl. Then in a separate bowl or plate, combine green peppers, chestnuts and celery and sit aside. The next move is to heat the wok by pour a teaspoon of peanut oil. Stir-fry the red peppers until they are lightly brown. Then add chicken and stir-fry until the chicken is almost cooked through. Add the vegetables too and stir-fry for a few minutes. Add a pinch of soy sauce and heat for a few minutes to combine the flavours. The last thing is to sprinkle the peanuts over. Ready to serve. It is a very appetizing dish so it's better to enjoy eating it over rice. Kung Pao Chicken is pretty universal in the Chinese restaurants so people eating out are keen to order this dish.

Describe your favorite animal. Dog I love dog. Dogs are adorable animals. My dog's name is Darcy and he's a 2-year-old husky. It's an interesting story how Darcy become one of the family. Just before my 22-year-old birthday, my friends asked me what I wanted. I said how I wish I could have a pet dog. I didn't take it serious because it was just a momentary thought and also it would could a fortune. But you know what, they chipped in and bought me a dog. And it's Darcy. He is very energetic and smart. I have taught him a lot of tricks. He can play hide and seek. He knows how to fetch things if I tell him to. He does roll overs and can also stand on his hind legs. He wags his tail when he is happy. He always barks when somebody comes to the door. But sometimes he is over-friendly and throws himself to people. Sometimes he is very naughty. I don't like it when I have to take him for a walk in the rain and then he jumps all over the sofa with his muddy paws. He loves to run and socialize with others. He is active as well. He is able to run tirelessly for miles. When I'm walking him, it looks as if he is walking me. He's so strong and quick that I feel I am all out, a good way to lose weight. Describe your favorite animal. Kiwis As you may or may not know, kiwi is the national bird of New Zealand – and sometimes New Zealanders themselves are known as 'Kiwis'. Now, while kiwis in the wild are a rare sight, the kiwi as a symbol is far more visible. Apart from being in toy stores and airport shops all over the world, you'll find them on our stamps and coins. The kiwi is the smallest member of the genus Apteryx which also includes ostriches and emu. It gets its name from its shrill call which sounds very much like this – kee-wee kee-wee. Kiwis live in forests or swamps and feed on insects, worms, snails and berries. It's a nocturnal bird with limited sight and therefore it has to rely on its very keen sense of smell to find food and to sense danger, Its nostrils are actually right on the end of its long beak which is one third of the body length. Now here's an interesting fact. Although kiwis have wings, they serve little purpose because the kiwi is a flightless bird. Since white settlement of the islands, kiwi numbers have dropped from 12 million to less than 70,000 and our national bird is rapidly becoming an endangered species. This is because they're being threatened by what we call introduced animals which were brought to New Zealand such as cats and ferrets which eat kiwi eggs and their chicks. Describe your favorite animal. Giant Panda I'd like to say something about our national animal – giant panda. Pandas are

famous for their black and white markings. The legs, shoulders, ears and oval patches around the eyes are black, and the rest of the coat is white. Pandas live in dense bamboo forests. They are good tree climbers and they can swim to escape predators. Different from the other bear species, the panda is the only herbivores in the family. Pandas feed mostly on bamboo but also eat flowers and even honey. Although it was once more widespread, today this rare species is limited to south-western China. The number of giant panda is decreasing mainly due to the loss of their natural habitat to the increasing human populations and periodic bamboo die-offs. Our government is taking efforts to save this kind of adorable animal. Describe a game children play. The Eagle and the Chicks I am going to describe a very interesting Chinese game I played in my childhood. It is called 'The Eagle and the Chicks', which is a fun, easy to play and a perfect outdoor game for kids. This game needs at least five kids to start, and the more kids participating, the more fun it would be. Choose a kid as the eagle and another kid as the mother hen. The rest of the kids will be the chicks. In the game, the eagle tries to catch the last chick in the line so he or she will be no longer the eagle, and the mother hen tries to protect the chicks from the eagle. The chicks will line behind the mother hen one by one. The first chick behind the mother hen will hold on to her waist or cloth, the one behind the first chick will hold on the first, and so on. The eagle can catch the last chick by tagging, and the mother hen can protect the chicks by spreading her arms shoulder high. When the chasing begins, the eagle is free to run anywhere to catch the chick. The mother hen will try to be in front of the eagle to protect the chicks. The eagle has to bypass the mother hen to catch the last chick and he will try to avoid any contact with the mother hen. To help the mother hen, the chicks will try to run out of the way of the eagle. The chicks don't have to be in the line all the time. They may run out of the line and play tag with the eagle. If the eagle catches the last chick, this round will be over and they switch roles for another round. Rubber Band Rope Jumping I'd like to say something about a game called rubber band rope jumping. Rubber band jumping was popular in my primary school which was only for girls. This game can help children to practice their jumping skills, develop coordination, and also meet lots of friends. Rubber band jumping is a low cost game. We only need some rubber bands. We looped rubber bands together tightly until we had a larger one (One can select the length she likes). When we got three persons together, we could start our game. Here's how we played this special jump rope game. Two girls stood

opposite each other and extended the rubber band. One player jumped and stood on one side of the rubber band, carrying the two sides together. Then she jumped again and made the two sides separate. After that she jumped again into the middle of the rubber-band and after that she jumped outside it. If we finished these steps without any mistakes, we started the next level. As the game continued, the level of jumping got higher and higher. There were four jumping levels: ankle high, knee high, waist high, and under the shoulder. More and more girls tried to jump and we competed as teams. The game is fun. But it is kind of pity nowadays we very rarely see young girls playing this game. Hopscotch I want to say something about hopscotch, which I personally think is a pretty universal game around the world. Children always enjoy drawing grids on the sidewalk or on the ground and then jumping or hopping from one end of the grid to the other. I remember when I was a little boy, most afternoons I used to play hopscotch with my friends in our neighbourhood. There could be any number of players, which means I could even play by myself. But there were always more fun with more kids. A stone was the only object we needed to play it. First of all, someone drew on the ground rectangles or squares arranged side by side with a figure in it. To play this game, each player had to hop to the first rectangle, then to the second one and them to the third one and so on. After reaching the last number with the last grid, the player had to turn around still on one leg and hop back from the last number to the first one. While hopping, the player must not step on the line between the rectangles, and must keep his balance. If, for instance, the player's other leg ( the one which is lifted) touches the ground, the player then fails. Describe your favourite movie. You've got mail. I am a huge fan of love story. One of my favourite movies is "You've got mail", staring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, who have successfully proven their popularity in another equally romantic and hilarious comedy, "Sleepless in Seattle". Tom Hanks is playing one of his least-agreeable characters, Joe Fox, part owner of the Fox Book Superstore chain. He is a cold businessman who puts the competition out of business without a second thought. Kathleen Kelly, on the other hand, is pure Meg Ryan. She owns a small children's bookstore called "the shop around the corner", finds herself in direct conflict with Joe, whose nearby superstore is stealing all of her customers by seducing them with discount and free gifts. They are business rivals in the real world, but fall for each other in the online chat room. If you are a fan of "Sleepless in Seattle", you will almost certainly fall in love with the similar-yet-different nature of the production.

Describe your favourite movie. Saving Private Ryan When I first saw it in theatres, I can remember walking out of the theatre thinking that it would easily win the Best Picture Oscar. There wasn't a doubt in my mind. And I am right. The movie stars Tom Hanks, of course, as captain John Miller, a man who must find Private James Ryan behind enemy lines. Why? His three brothers were killed in action, and as the only surviving son in his family, he's being sent home. So Miller, along with his group venture deep into the heart of combat, questioning why they are there and having to find the answers within themselves. There are some of the most intense battle scenes ever put on film. But it goes along with the theme of the movie "war is hell".

Describe an important city in your country. Shanghai Geographic region Lying at the gateway to the Yangtze River on the middle of China's East Coast, Shanghai is the largest economic and trade center, a comprehensive industrial base and the leading port in China, as well as a famous historical and cultural city with a total population of more than 16 million. History Shanghai used to be merely a small fishing village. After the first Opium War, the British named Shanghai a trading port, forcing the city's opening to foreign involvement administered by the British, French and American independent of Chinese law. Each colonial presence brought with its own culture, architecture and society. Thus began a mixing of cultures that shaped Shanghai's openness to Western influence. Climate Shanghai has a delightful climate with four distinct seasons, generous sunshine and abundant rainfall. It belongs to the northern subtropical monsoon climate. The rainy season mainly come during the end of June and the early July. The weather is at its best in September and October, with a good chance of sunny days and mild temperatures. Winters can drop well below zero and summers are hot and humid with temperature as high as 40 centigrade. It very rarely snows here in Shanghai but the winter fog is quite frequent and the visibility in the morning can be rather poor.

In the evenings and at weekends there are always cultural events, with such diverse attractions as operas, dramas and exhibitions. It is difficult to get bored. Of course, living in a city like this has its disadvantages as well. For a start, the cost of living can be very high, renting an apartment, for example, is very expensive. And as the city is expanding, there are a lot of building sites where new apartments are continually being built to deal with the urban sprawl and the rural-urban migration of population.

Describe a museum. Museum of Anthropology I just came from Vancouver and I must say I had a fantastic time. There's so much to see and do in the city. But if you get a chance to go there, there's one place you mustn't miss, and that 's the Museum of Anthropology. It was certainly one of the highlights of my time in Canada. The museum was actually established way back in 1949 and these days it's one of the most popular in Canada. It's worth going there just to see the building, in fact, because it's stunningly modern and dramatic – it's hard to believe it was built back in 1976. One very good thing is that the museum's all on one floor, which makes it easily accessible for wheelchairs. Another plus is that it's in the most beautiful setting, overlooking the sea. And inside, you can see archaeological material from all over the world. It's not a large museum, so it's quite easy to find your way around. When you

only opening to the outside is through the front gate. Such a resident offers space, comfortable and quite privacy. It is also good for security as well as protection against dust and storms. Grown with plants and flowers, the court is also a sort of garden. All the quadrangles, as product of feudal society, were built in accordance with a strict set of rules from their size and style one could tell whether they belonged to private individuals or the powerful and rich. One of the most striking aspects of Chinese domestic architecture is the practice of making houses face south.

My Dream House Let's pretend money is no object and build the home of our dreams. My design begins with the overall structure of a three-storey house. I love pavilion style roof. Beneath the roof is a cozy attic, where I can enjoy my private time, reading, meditating or whatsoever. I would have as many windows as possible, which are designed to make the rooms bright and ventilated, although I guess the cleaning and upkeep of these windows could be demanding. The sitting room is spacious, with huge closets, bookcases and lots and lots of room storage. I want the ceiling shaped like a dome with a big crystal ball lamp hanging on the top. There must be a huge balcony with a great view to look out of, say a huge green park or the sea. And there have to be a French window to accompany it. Maybe I am thinking wild but I do think the surroundings must match my dream house. The bedroom is on the second floor. I don't like the smell and touch of paint, which looks dull and cold so I would use wallpaper, the light pink colour. And there must be a lot of cushions. I love cushions. They are warm and soft.

There is a big old rusted gramophone in the centre and on the walls there are many black-and-white pictures of Shanghai in the early 20th century. In the evening, the candles are used instead of lamps. And the uniforms of the waitresses are cheongsam. Everything looks so

Describe an emblematic building Oriental Pearl TV Tower The Broadcasting & Television Tower of Oriental Pearl is the world's third tallest TV tower after the 553-meter CN Tower in Toronto and the 535-meter Moscow TV Tower. It is situated in the Pudong New Area, facing off the classic beauty of the Bund. With a giddy height of 468 meters, the tower is Shanghai's landmark and a big magnet for tourists. Every visitor will undoubtedly be overwhelmed by its beauty. The designers magically designed eleven beautiful spheres of various sizes and three big columns together to represent pearls (as in "Shanghai, Pearl of the Orient"). The sightseeing floor is 263 meters high and it is the best place to get a bird's eye-view of Shanghai. When it is sunny, it is really relaxed and happy to have the distant views of Shanghai. In the upper sphere, there are also the Revolving Restaurant, the Disco Hall, the Piano Bar and twenty KTV rooms. The Restaurant revolves one circle an hour. Every Saturday evening, an open-air performance is held on the terrace under the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. The program offers mostly acrobatics, singing and dancing. The Oriental Pearl Tower is a multi-functional establishment satisfying various needs in tourism, dining, shopping, entertainment, boarding and Audio & Video Broadcasting. It has already become one of the symbolic buildings and tourism resorts in Shanghai and is honored as one of the best views in Shanghai.

Sports / exercise quotation If only Hitler and Mussolini could have a good game of bowls once a week, I feel that Europe would not be as troubled as it was. Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. Food / diet quotation You are what you eat. Tell me what you eat. I'll tell you who you are. Vegetables are a must on a diet. The belly rules the mind. Movie quotation Don't judge a book by a movie. Why should people go out and pay money to see bad films when they can stay home and see bad television for nothing. Photograph quotation Buying a camera doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a camera owner. A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense. Television quotation Television has proved that people will look at anything rather than each other. I find television to be very education. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go to the other room and read a book. If you read a lot of books, you're considered well-read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well-viewed. Music quotation Without music life would be a mistake.

The more you wait, the more time you waste.

Music's the medicine of the mind. Music is the universal language of mankind. Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it is above and beyond all words. Housework quotation I think housework is the reason most women go to the office. Reading / book quotation You are what you read. A room without books is like a body without a soul. A wonderful thing about a book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that you can take it to bed with you. No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go to the other room and read a book. If you read a lot of books, you're considered well-read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well-viewed. Travel quotation The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Animal quotation Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

To save animals is to save human being from committing suicide. Friendship quotation A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad. A friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you. If a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.

The more you wait, the more time you waste.
