Ladies and gentlemen,
I have had a lot of teachers in my school who have given me much help in my study. For their help I will never forget them. But today I am going to talk about a special teacher of mine. This teacher is not a human being and its name is“Computer”. It has been teaching me a lot of knowledge and I appreciate it very much.
With the development of modern science and technology, computers are widely used in every teritories [every field](1) including education. How can a computer be my teacher? How does a computer teach me? Multimedia(多媒体)helps a lot in this aspect in recent years, and computer-based training (CBT) has become a popular educational medium (手段). Even before the multimedia come [came](2) up, many different learning systems appeared, using the components and techniques we now associate with the term “multimedia”. Multimedia components, such as graphics (动画) , animations , sound and video, make the learning process easier through visualization. Animations can present many complex subjects dynamically, but human teachers can not do this on blackboards. Multimedia makes our study more lively and interesting. For example, a CD-ROM disk named “Encarta Encyclopedia” contains 650 MB information including images, graphics, music clips, video clips, animations , texts, hotwords, and database search functions. Fields involved includes physical sciences, performance arts, social sciences, politics, military, education and so on. When pressing a button, I can hear American President Clinton's speech clip. I may enjoy playing all kinds of musical instruments in the world. I can also see the animation of many physical phenomena. This makes physical concept to be understood deeply [ concepts understood better](3). The audio features of multimedia can greatly help me learning [learn] (4) foreign languages. With its speech output capabilities, I'm no longer dependent on an instructor for proper pronunciation.
How can I interact with a computer? There are many ways, including keyboard, mouse pointer, and touch screen. I often use a keyboard. When I press right keys, I can see and hear whatever I want. Information world is at my fingertip. I wish that true speech input-output system would be invented on
As teachers, computers have a lot of virtues： They are positive, they have good memories and never lose any information stored in them. They have much knowledge in every field. They can let out all kinds of sounds, and can also improve the efficiency of our study. For example, if I want to, I can skip some chapters so that I can study at my own pace.
Although computers will never take the place of human teachers, they are welcomed by more and more learners. Computers will continue to evolve(发展)with the aid of modern technologies. Computers are so powerful, helpful and imp
It is human nature that all of us should be fond of beauty. Everybodywas born with a heart for beauty.
Today in China,with the rising of our living standard, people's requirement of beauty has been heightened accordingly. Some people spare no money or energy on beautiful clothes, fashionable hair styles,the decoration of their houses and even the improvement of their looks.
But it seems to me,allthese are more or less confined to the beauty in appearance,or rather,the outward beauty.
In my opinion,we shouldn't on
not lovely for being beautiful but beautiful for being lovely. "
Here, I'd like to quote two typical instances and I'm sure, my dear friends,from them you'll find out what real beauty is.
Recently I learned from the radio an unpleasant incident about a wellknown singer. She is very charming with a sweet beautiful voice and very famous for singing the song."Devotion of Love". Not long ago,she was invited to Zhejiang Province to give performance. The moment she was to appear on the stage,she suddenly asked for more reward. Worse still,after her request was satisfied, she didn't begin to sing at on
How disappointed her keen listeners were when they learned this! It is the singer herself who spoiled her beautiful image in the eyes of others.
Now, I'm coming to another true story. It's about a poor, ordinary looking old woman. She was a widow without any children, living barely from hand to mouth by picking odds and ends from rubbish heaps. However,she took in more than ten homeless orphans successively and managed to bring them up. Every day she labored from morning till night. In order to earn as much money as possible to raise the children and to keep them in school,she even went to a hospital regularly to sell her blood. She got so weak for the loss of blood that she sometimes fell in a faint on her way home.
When asked why she chose to burden herself with so many children,she smiled and simply answered,"Oh,I love children and I like to have their company. "
Though the old woman was poor materially, she was full of affection and rich in spirit. She was loved dearly by her children. She was also highly appreciated by the local government, and truly respected by people in her community.
Maybe you can't help wondering, "What makes that ordinary woman so extraordinary?" It is nothing else but her inner beauty, her true devotion of love without any thought of rewarding. What a sharp contrast there is between the great woman and the selfish singer]
So,to answer the question "What is real beauty?", I declare definitely,it is the beauty lying in on
英语演讲：Should we borrow money from our friends
It’s a sunny day， you come to do shopping with your good friend in company, and see a lovely dress that you feel like buying. Searching carefully into your purse, but no money is in it, looking carefully into your friend’s eyes, hesitating.Money is surely needed at present, but should you borrow it from your friend? My advice is that you should never do this unless you are forced to do so, since it can do great harm to your friendship. The reasons I will show you below can help you to know why.
Firstly, how can you make sure that your friends have enough money to lend to you? They may have to change their shopping plans due to your unreasonable request. What’s more ，if they don’t have enough money at the moment to lend to you, they may feel embarrassed to admit it. Your friendship will be damaged little by little following this kind of game.
Secondly, you can hardly get money from your friend without leaving them the feeling that they have to do so in order not to disappoint you. And the element money is added into a matter, that won’t be a pure thing. It is the same with friendship. If you keep borrowing money from your friend again and again, they will feel that being your friend on
What is more imp
Yes, there’s no doubt that a friend should give you a hand when you are in trouble, but everything should have a limit. Please remember that a friend is not a machine from which you can borrow money.
So next time when you do want to buy something but have got no money at hand, just go to the bank to draw some or come to buy it with your money next time. After all, friendship is more imp
