From Shanhaiguan, northeast of Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province in the east coast, the Great Wall rises and falls with the contours of the mountains westward, crossing the provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, Beijing, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Ningxia and Gansu for 6,700 kilometers, to end at Jiayuguan, southwest of Jiayuguan City in Gansu Province. The construction of the wall began during the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 BC) and Warring States period (475-221 BC) during the Eastern Zhou Dynasty. Ducal states at that time built walls to defend their own territories. After the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty crushed all rival states, he founded the first centralized and unified dynasty in Chinese history. To consolidate the country and ward off invasion by ethnic minority tribes in the north, he had the walls linked and extended, giving rise to the 5,000-kilometer-long Qin Great Wall. Later dynasties from Han (206 BC – AD 220) to Ming (1368-1644) kept building and improving the wall, extending it more than 1,000 kilometers to today‘s scale.As one of the most magnificent ancient defense works, the Great Wall is known as one of the wonders of the world. All tourists now know the saying, You are not a real person until you have climbed the Great Wall.The Great Wall was put on the world cultural heritage list in 1987.
Our School我的学校 Good morning, my dear teachers and friends! My name is Li Bingke, from class four O five. Today, I am very happy to be here. My topic is “Our School”. My dear friends, welcome to our school! My school is very beautiful! It has a big playground. We can play and do some sports there. Near the playground, there is a garden. Many trees and flowers are there. So the air is very clean and we can hear birds singing in the trees. It is so wonderful. Our teaching buildings are around the garden and look like our teachers’ arms to welcome us. We can draw pictures in the art room on the first floor and read story-books in the library on the second floor. My classroom is on the third floor. It is clean and bright. We like to study in it. The computer room is on the fifth floor. We can sing and dance in the music room on the sixth floor. What a lot of fun! We can have lunch in the canteen near Defang Teaching Building. In our school, our teachers work hard and help us with our lessons. We study hard and listen to teachers carefully. After class, our teachers play with us and we feel very happy.

Dear judges and my dear mates, my topic today is I love drawing.每个人都己的爱好，我的爱好画。
Everyone has its hobbies and I"m not an exception. Mine is drawing simply because it"s not like dancing and playing the piano with too many things stuck to the rule.画画的时候，只要拿起画笔，在雪白的纸上想画什么就画什么，可以充分发挥一个人的想象力。
When putting up the colour pencils, I"ll draw what"s in my mind to my inspiration on the snow-white piece. Because that"s my own affair.每当我拿起画笔，我就会感到：我是一片树叶，我是流淌的小溪，我是一朵白云在天空中飘动，我是一朵小花在祖国大地上茁壮成长…… This time I feel like being a tree leaf, a flowing stream, a floating cloud in the sky, or a flower growing on my motherland...说实话，学画画也不是件轻松的事。
Frankly speaking, drawing is not a piece of cake to me.虽然画的东西不受限制，却要讲究构图，刻画，色调搭配等等，要做到画什么像什么。
Though the fact is that what we"re going to draw is exactly not restricted, it needs designing and thinking and definitely the same as the real one. I"m glad to say that I"m able to create more now through learning to the others.班中的黑板报上有了我的用武之地，有什么画画的比赛老师也让我去参加，我还获得过绘画奖状呢
What"s more, a wild field is waiting for me. Pictures on the blackboard, drawing competitions, and even trophies for drawing.更让给我高兴的是，在学画的过程中我还认识了许多的新朋友。
Much to my pleasant, I"ve met my new friends in the process.同学们，画画给我带来了无穷的乐趣。
So attention, please. Drawing makes me happy and I"d like to use my colour pencils to make out the beautiful future. Wish you join us! Thank you all. Thank you.
I wouldn"t normally associate a haunt like Xitang with the toothy gleam of Hollywood royalty. It"s hard to imagine high-octane players like Tom Cruise kicking back in an ancient Chinese water-village and much easier to picture the place filled with decadent opium dens and people idling on sampans. But incontrovertible proof was there to see: up on the wall in a restaurant - and it will soon be seen by many more on silver screens worldwide. It takes about 90 minutes to drive down to Xitang from Shanghai; from a 21st-century megalopolis to an altogether dreamier slice of history. This Ming and Qing dynasty backwater is achingly photogenic - a quality not missed out on by the producers for Mission: Impossible III. It was rumoured locally that they"d stumped up 100 million Yuan to film in this tiny village for a few days - a shade over £7 million - but it"s possible for the casual visitor to get the picture on a somewhat more modest budget. A ticket for you or me to enter town costs about 40p. To call this lovely water-village an oriental Venice would be wildly over the mark, yet it shares similarities with its more famous Italian counterpart. Canals dissect twisting narrow lanes and pathways, rendering the community traffic-free and boat friendly. Worn stone steps lead down to the waters and hopelessly pretty bridges span them. But Xitang is on an altogether smaller, happily domestic scale, and no matter how hard it tries, tourism is mercifully still in its infancy. Even though the place is small, it"s chock-full with museums, temples and places of historic and cultural interest. This is all the more amazing since Xitang suffered badly during the Cultural Revolution. Some of the permanent exhibitions seemed a little eccentric: the anorak within me was particularly taken by the Root Carving museum and the Brick and Tile Display Hall. The Drunk Garden - so-called after the intoxicating effect its views are alleged to have on those visiting - is gorgeous (although I remained sober) and the West Garden, famed for its poetical connections, is a classical baroque tumble of stones, pagodas and pools. I noticed that the guidebook boasted some old residences exhibit stone-inscriptions of celebrities. But I"m willing to wager that it"s not Tinsel Town"s glyptography they"re bragging about, but those of long dead dignitaries. Rustic wooden pistols seemed to be the toy of choice in the scattering of tourist shops signposted with scalloped flags. They also flog bric-a-brac and are only worth a cursory once-over. But the minuscule noodle and dumpling stores and local inns are well worth seeking out. Guesthouses cost 100-150 Yuan a night for some of the most romantic rooms I"ve come across. Pierced screens and paper walls surround exquisite carved beds with marble inlays; they are begging for secret trysts or idle nights. The views through the geometric windows across tiled rooftops to the canals below are unbeatable. At night, red lanterns dotted along the eaves reflect in the water, doubling the prettiness, but I don"t think Tom and his famously betrothed girlfriend, Katie Holmes, succumbed to these simple charms. Like Venice, Xitang is a place that does washing - a bunting of knickers and vests was strung all over the place. Skipping is the preferred exercise, and half-a-dozen jumping women did their utmost to dodge the laundry. Fishing junks are still in everyday use - easily identified because they"re covered in cormorants - and jostle alongside the myriad tourist boats. They"re the source of local delicacies, including Fenhu Lake crabs, shrimps, eels, clams and turtles. Legs of pork hung in an open shed, were ready to be steamed on lotus leaves and served up with trotter sauce. One of the better places to eat is at the Qiantang Hotel in the centre of the village on a junction of three waterways. The veranda houses a simple bar and eating area with antique curved seating that allowed women of a bygone era to repose gracefully. It also housed the photographic proof of uber-stardom. A grinning Mr Cruise can be seen grappling with the rather po-faced owner. I also spotted Meryl Streep on the Qiantang Hotel wall of fame. She, too, was hugging the proprietor. Meryl came as something of a surprise as she"s not featured in the movie. Perhaps Xitang is where the triple A-listers go to chill out of the limelight. Even though Xitang is small, it"s something of a centre for the arts. In summer, traditional folk operas, concerts and a local cinema play by the waterside in the open-air. And all year-round, young artists from the cities come to paint the alleyways and canals. Local legend has it that a walk with your loved one over the Songi Laifen bridge increases fertility. Inevitably, Tom and Katie couldn"t resist the stroll across it.
