How do I improve English ability through using English Website?

Studying without a method is like traveling in the mountains without a compass. Not knowing the right direction, we may waste much time trying every possible way and still fail to reach our goal. When I learn English this year, our English teacher give us some English websites in order to improve our interesting in English. Just like on-line dictionary, wikipedia, English trailers, E-touch and writing English blogger. These tools really help me a lot. I started to study English by tools and it’s very useful for me. I sometimes use the English trailers to see new movie preview. English trailer not only give me new movie knowledge but also enrich my English learning life.
English trailers is a free website for studying English using movie commercials. In this website, we can see movie preview. Although we can’t know the conversation in the movie, we can read the dialogue after we finish the close test. We can try our best to study the grammatical structure of every sentence thoroughly. By these ways, we can not only train our speaking ability but also increase our vocabulary amount. The second website I use fewer is E-touch. In this website, I can get a lot of information about words, grammar, conversation and some skills for writing. They have full-blown CompuServe for us to refer the knowledge we need. By these two website, we can make an incredible progress.
In a word, there are many advantages by using English learning website. Generally speaking, the more books one reads, the more knowledge on acquires and finally can find the entertaining. It can’t be denied that students must study hard. However, in addition to studying, students also need recreational activities to relax themselves. We must connect the English learning with our every day life. In the beginning, it’s difficult, but a diligent person will get what he wants at least. Maybe one day, we will find the interesting of using English. I think it is the reason why we use the English website.

online shopping

I. Introduction: What’s meaning of “Online Garage Sales”
Antique, computer, cameras, and more can all be sold online. Before the Internet, Americans sold their old stuff from their garages or yards. But now, online shopping sites now provide a new venue for people around the world. When we have extra stuff on our hands, the internet can help us turn that extra stuff into cash.
II. Why garage sale is famous around the world?
eBay was the first site where individual sellers could sell goods online. This trend has spread quickly around the globe. Many American companies see the Asian market as having the most potential.
III. How do we get engaged in online purchase?
First, users pay a fee to list their goods.
Second, buyers bid on the item.
Third, the seller is responsible for shipping those goods to the highest bidder wins.
Fourth, after the sale, the buyer and seller can post comments about the sale on each other’s profile.
IV. Which advantage?
We can see many goods without walking outside. We also can compare the price. Even though, we can buy many items only by a computer and don’t everywhere.
V. Which disadvantage?
We can’t see the real item that we can’t know what the level is. We only see the picture and description without other details.
VI. Conclusion?
I think although the online shopping is very convenient, I still don’t use the net to buy something. Because I’d like to see real goods and compare with the information. I only use it to get some information for those goods which I want.

On Generation Net

Who is Generation N? Generation N also called Net Generation. It is the name for these people who born after 1975. These men who called Generation N are thoroughly comfortable with technology and fully embrace the Internet. In other words, they have more abilities to process information and open to new ideas than previous generation. However, too many information makes Generation N don’t know what is wrong and what is right. It is not an exaggeration to say that “Generation N” values their fun, has low resistance and stability.
Attitudes toward Internet
Most knowledge in the Internet is of much help to us. However, some information about sex and violence has ill effects on our mind. The body and the mind of the Generation N are not mature enough and they are short of the ability to judge things properly so they may be affected. Some young people like to imitate the bad words and deeds of the characters of some programs. They are incredibly crazy about their idols.
The destruction of traditional public morals
Juvenile delinquency has been a serious problem in our society. From my viewpoint, most of the juveniles committing crimes are those whose lack not only love and care at home but also discipline in school. We should advocate thrift diligence and family values in order to correct bad practices which are prevalent in our society.
In fact, Generation N is future masters of our country. Man is a social animal and nobody is supposed to live alone. In addition to studying, Generation N must learn how to deal with people. As proverb says “Knowledge is power” we should accept diverse viewpoints and increase our knowledge and enrich our mind, so that we can face with difficulty and make the society better.

Environment and our life

For the pass ten years, the standard of living in Taiwan has been raised greatly. But as a proverb says: “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” With the rapid economic growth, the environmental pollution in Taiwan is becoming more and more serious. Every advantage has its disadvantage. What is worse, not only in Taiwan, but everywhere in the word has experience the effect of the environment pollution coming with the high living quality. However, we still can’t do anything about it.

There is universally a lack of civic consciousness among people. As a result, there is chaos everywhere. Air is polluted by the exhaust which is released from the factories. However, many people don’t know the importance of protecting our environment, and they pollute it at will. They don’t know about that polluted air and poisonous gases are harmful to our health. Serious air pollution brings about the greenhouse effect and acid rains threaten our existence. Higher and higher temperature causing the melting of glaciers and flooding in coastal areas. On the other hand, destroy of the ozone layer give rise to the rate of skin cancer. These problems had not received the attention it deserves because people have become used to it. We are now paying the price for the damage we’ve done to our surrounding.

It is never too late to mend. We must stop neglecting this serious problem. I have some suggestions to save our earth. First, authorities concerned should make the laws about the protection of our environment and carry them out strictly. Second, the owners of the factories must think of some ways to make pollution from their factories reduced to the minimum. We must not destroy our future just for immediate benefit. We should care about the environment and protect it for being polluted. In this way, we can leave a beautiful earth to our offspring.
