Two years before, I traveled to Brazil and I rented for a car. Unfortunate, I had an accident
and hit another car, and I needed to stay in a hospital for at least two week. I called my
parents, so I did not tell them what had happened. I knew that they will be worried about
myself because I was so farther away, and that my mother would not sleep if she knew.
Therefore, I told them interested stories and how I was enjoying Brazil. As a result, nobody
knew truth. I still think that it was the right thing to do.
Not all people like to work and everyone likes to play. All over the world men and woman, boys and girls enjoy sports. Since long ago, many adults and children called their friends together to spend hours, even days play games. One of the reasons why people like to play is that sports help them to live happy. In another words, they help to keep people strong. When people play games, they move a lot. That is how sports are good activities for their health. Having fun with their friends make them delighted. Many people enjoy sports by watching the others play. In big American cities, thousands sell tickets to watch football or basketball games.
It was quiet, sunny afternoon. I was sitting in the garden, reading the Sunday newspaper and expected a couple of hour of peace. Then I hear a loud knock on the door. I saw about twelve ladies wearing her Sunday clothes. They said, “Well, we hope we are not late, so it is not easy to find your house.” One lady said, “Well, your husband is very kind to invite us to tea.” I thought, “My God, my husband must have been mad.” I asked for them into the house and they sat down and started talking happy. But when my husband appeared, it was quickly discovered that they could have gone to the house on the another side of the street.

How can a person recover from emotional problems? Many people suggest that he or she watches humorous films. And a recent study proves it to be wrong. The study also shows that watching at sad films can make getting over a negative mood a easier job.
Emotional experiences is important to people’s wellbeing. People are less likely to share their feelings with these who have had similar experiences. Similar, people prefer movies that reflect their mood. That’s the reason a sad film rather than a pleasant one can contribute to comfort a sad person.
More and more foreigners like to come to China．Last Friday the foreign teacher was invited to our school give a lecture to the students of Senior Grade Two. We found his lecture lively and interestingly．I learned a lot of from him． The teacher talked to us freely with easy English. He spoke so slowly that we understand him very well. Sometimes he repeated that we didn't understand．My classmates were all active in the class．To my joys, I understood everything the teacher said．And I was able to ask question in English. I was deeply encouraged．I think if we practise like this, to learn spoken English well will be easily for us．
I had a really embarrassing experience at Beijing airport last week．I was returning back from a business trip to England and was extreme tired．I could hardly keep my eyes open as I collected my suitcase and start to walk towards Passport Control．
Before long, I became aware of someone shouted but ignored it．I was about to step forward to present my passport while a man tapped me politely on the shoulders．I had picked up my suitcase by mistake! At that time, everyone was watching us and I felt deeply embarrassing．In the end the gentleman, Mr. Xu, kindly accepted my apology to my mistake and we shook hands, smiling happily．However, I will more careful next time．
I couldn't believe my ears when I heard my name calling．I was chosen to play the leading role in the play, that was my dream． As a shy and thin girl, I used to be quite afraid of speaking in the public． But my parents and teachers always encourage me to do so． Now I have changed great．In class, I am often the first one to stand up and answer questions even if I may take some mistakes． No pains, no gains, Now I am always brave enough overcome the difficulty in my heart and have changed in a lively girl． So my experience shows that we should not be afraid of losing face but only in this way can we make progresses．
In our life, we often regret what we did and which we couldn’t do. Actually, it doesn’t benefit us at all. As for most of us, we missed many chance to earn more money, to get a high position and to realize our dreams. We often regret that we don’t seize those opportunities, thus feel upset. Although we do know regretting the Past is no benefit, but we still can’t help doing it
To avoid the problem below, we need to pay more attention to what you are doing now, making us busier and having no time to recall the past. Moreover, we’d better set reasonably goals one by one. Only by doing so can we struggle for our future better.

Peter Judd joined in the army when he was eighteen, and for several
months he was teaching how to be a good soldier. He did quite well in
everything besides shooting. One day he and his friends were practising their
shooting, and both all of them were doing quite well except Peter. After he
has shot at the target nine times and had not hit it once, the officer was
trying to teach the young soldiers to shoot said, “You’re quite hopeless. Peter! Don’t waste your last bullets, either! Go behind that wall and shoot you with it! Peter felt ashamed. He went behind the wall, and a few seconds late, the
