【参考范文】My low-carbon life
Now the human living environment is becoming worse and worse. So a new lifestyle called low-carbon life is spreading to every part of our country. As middle school students, how can we have a low-carbon life?
Firstly, we can go to school on foot or by bike. Secondly, we shouldn’t waste water or electricity. Do remember to turn off the lights when we leave the room and turn off the tap in time after using it. Thirdly, we should use colth bags in our daily life instead of plastic ones. Fourthly, we should also make full use of paper. We’d better recycle some of our textbooks.
It’s important for us to live a low-carbon life to protect the environment.

Boys and girls,
It is very important for us students to keep healthy.
There are many ways to be healthy. We’d better eat more fruits and vegetables. Take exercise for at least one hour every day. We need enough sleep and rest so it is important to go to bed early and get up early. Besides, we should wash our hands as often as possible. In my opinion, we mustn't drink wine or smoke .They are bad for our health.
I know that you will visit your Chinese teacher’s home. If you do the following, I don’t think you will feel uncomfortable.
First, you should arrive a little earlier. Being late is impolite. Second, it’s also good to bring a gift such as some flowers or fruit. Third, you will probably use chopsticks to have dinner. Remember not to stick your chopsticks into your food. You’d better say that the food is delicious while you are eating. Finally, after dinner, showing thanks is also necessary. And you are not supposed to stay long after dinner.
I am glad to give you advice on the customs of giving gifts in my country.
Firstly, I think you need to find out what your Chinese teacher likes. Choosing the gift that your teacher is interested in is a good idea. Secondly, don’t pack the gift with black or white wrapping paper, because black and white aren’t considered to be lucky colors. Thirdly, don’t buy your teacher a clock, a pair of shoes, or some pears because these have bad meanings in Chinese when giving a gift.
I hope my advice can help you.
