If one of your friends helped you move to your new apartment. How will you do to express your appreciation?
þGift (book, DVD, cinema ticket…)
þRestaurant (buy him/her a lunch/dinner)
þHelp him/her in turn
I think I will invite him for dinner and stand a treat as appreciation. My friends all have their different preference for specific food and I can cater to their interests. For example, I can invite him to an Italian restaurant near my new apartment and enjoy pasta or pizza first and then, buy some scrumptious disserts take-out to home and have a chat. That would be wonderful and I believe he will be happy.
Some schools offer classes early in the morning while others provide classes late at night? Which one do you prefer?
I like classes in the morning because I am always an early bird and not fond of putting everything off to the end of a say. First, students can definitely learn useful knowledge more efficiently from say, 8a.m. till 11a.m. than in the afternoon. Besides, people may fell drowsy in the later half of the day so that studying at that time would be a waste of time.
学生写信 Eliminate community services
1) Students won't do community services after they graduate.
2) Students do not work hard before they are forced to, and this left a bad impression to the neighbors.
A student wrote to the university administration proposing the cancelation of community services for students won’t continue to do it after graduation and the halfhearted work may leave a bad impression on the neighbors. However, the girl is against this proposal. First, she thinks many students choose the university for its compulsory community services. Besides, the student wrote based on his own unpleasant experience and most of the students are working hard and receive a positive response.

男学生的朋友Sam搬出去住，准备办一个house warming party。他和另一个朋友给他买了一个book case作为礼物，是需要自己assemble的，结果组装的时候发现some part was missing
The boy and his friend was going to send Sam a DIY book case at the house warming party but they found late that some parts are missing. There are two solutions now. they can either exchange an identical one or a new book case of other style. However, the same book case is out of stock right now and they have to wait for a whole week but other styles cost much more than the current one. I think they should take the second advice for the time limit though it may cost them more money.
