A total of 264 students from seven primary schools and five middle schools joined 20 coaches and teachers in the eight-day sports training program.
To enrich extracurricular activities, our school intends to hold a summer camp for students from high school on July 6, 2015. The event will include English learning and basketball games.
The head coach of the summer camp, Liu Bin, was assisted by 10 professional football players.
Thus, volunteers for this camp are badly needed to assist us in organizing the relevant affairs, including reception, distribution of documents, etc. Candidates must have adequate patience with the adolescents. Besides, the volunteers ought to have outstanding skills at English. Students who have previous experience as volunteers are preferred.
Each day, campers took part in short matches and skill training exercises. The aspiring players were also taken to watch an international invitational match.
Those who are interested in taking part in it may sign up with the monitor of their classes before June 30, 2014.
This was the second time Changning’s campus football league hosted the camp.
The Shanghai Youth Center of Science and Technology Education’s Changning branch hosted a science summer camp on July 2.

It is exceedingly great to hear the news that Students’ Union is planning various activities to inspire some traditional virtues. And today, this open letter is for the purpose of advocating thrift.
China is best characterized by its many virtues, and thrift is one of them. However, compared with before, the phenomenon of wasting is more serious: water, food, money and time are not cherished in daily life. It is this ignorance that leads some youngsters to lose their awareness of saving and respecting others’ hard work. Accordingly, it is advisable for us to change/ reverse this trend.
Please consider our sincere hope/ suggestion, and look forward to your actions and participation!

As a regular customer, I am writing this letter to complain about the quality of dictionary bought from the bookone.com.
To keep these children occupied, and ease the burden on their parents, Tianshan community members started a summer education program that included classes on history, science and technology. Field trips were arranged as well, with groups of students visiting an organic farm and a special exhibition celebrating the victory of World War II.

I am much disappointed with its poor quality, and it was the frequent breakdowns that did not enable me to make good/full preparation for GRE. Compared with the claims in advertisements, its quality is much worse and hardly can I use it anymore. Accordingly, it is advisable for you to change it for another new one. Then, it is also essential for your store to strengthen your service after sale.
Please consider my sincere demand and advice. (117 words)
I ordered an Oxford Dictionary of Contemporary English a week ago. Apart from the delayed delivery, many pages in the dictionary are missing and some of the pages are reversed, which are totally unacceptable to me.
District education authorities also organized a parent-child interactive event at the Shanghai Sheshan Children’s Camp in Songjiang District, where families gathered together to engage in a series of activities designed to spread knowledge about waste sorting and fire safety, among other topics.
I would like to get a refund or at least change it for a new one. And I trust that you will now consider this matter seriously and make an effort to prevent the recurrence of this kind.

I am writing to formally request to withdraw from two courses: Introduction to Elementary Education and Teaching Methods.

Write a memorandum of about 100 words to the student service department and ask them to fix a telephone for each dormitory. Your Memo should include:
(1)Your purpose. (2) The reasons. (3)Your sincere hope.
Date: Aug. 8, 2013
To: The leader of student service department
From: Li Ming
Subject: Telephone fixing
I would like to remind you that we are in need of a telephone for each dormitory. As university students, we need to cope with the daily increasing communications with teachers, friends and people outside the campus.
We need a telephone to get and send message, which is important for us. Though most of us have mobile phones and e-mail address, a telephone in the dormitory is after all the most convenient and cheapest tool of communication.
I hope that you will pay attention to this problem and solve it as soon as possible.
