现在我们周围的环境污染越来越严重。作为一个中学生，我们应节约资源，保护环境，从我们身边的小事做起，做一个“低碳生活”的中学生。请以“My Low--carbon Life”为题，写一篇短文描述自己的“低碳生活”。
My Low-carbon Life
The environmental pollution is worse and worse today. Many trees are cut down， and water and air are polluted. As a student I try to have a low-carbon life to save energy and reduce pollution.
Firstly， I often walk to school. It can reduce air pollution. Secondly， I always turn off the lights and fans when leaving the classroom. Thirdly， I always make full use of paper and other school things and never waste water.
I wish more students to join me and make the earth more and more beautiful.
What are friends? We often talk about the topic with others. I think friends are those people who can help you when you are in trouble. Don’t forget the saying， “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” Friends can tell you your mistakes， though what they say is hard for you to listen to. You can share your happiness， trouble and worry with friends. Someone also says， “You can’t walk any step without a friend.” So I think friends are very important to us. I would like to make as many friends as possible.

How to Deal with Our Study Problems
Although we often feel stressed， we should find suitable ways to deal with stress.
We can wear calm colours like blue and white to make us feel relaxed. We should be careful enough， because “a miss is as good as a mile”. We should also achieve a balance between schoolwork and hobbies. Try to plan your spare time well. Don’t lose heart at any time. You will make great progress through hard work.
When having problems， we can ask people around us for help. It’s not wise to keep our worries to ourselves.

My Favourite Great Book
My favourite great book is The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.
Tom Sawyer is a lively and clever boy. He lives with his aunt Polly. His aunt is strict with him， so he runs to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River with two friends， Huck and Joe. With Huck， he goes looking for treasure; with Becky， he gets lost in a cave. And finally Tom and Huck find a box of gold. Tom is the hero of the story， but there are other important characters. Becky is pretty with fair hair. Huck is Tom’s best friend， and Injun Joe is the bad man of the story.
The theme of the story is to do with children growing up and becoming more serious.

1. 父母规矩太多， 过于强调学习成绩， 不理解自己等问题;
How to keep a good relationship with parents
In my opinion， I have too many rules at home. My parents never allow me to go out with my friends at night. They don’t allow me to choose my own clothes， either. And they pay too much attention to my exam results. I think my parents don’t quite understand me.
However， I try my best to understand them. Although they don’t allow me to make my own decisions and give me too much pressure， I know that it is because they really love me and want me to have a bright future.
In order to keep a good relationship with my parents， I study hard， listen to them， talk to them as friends， tell them my troubles， and help them do more housework.
实现有效的沟通，建立良好的人际关系，不仅要善于表达，更要善于倾听。请你根据表格中所提供的信息，写一篇题为“Being a Good Listener”的英文演讲稿。
Being a Good Listener
Good afternoon， everyone!
Today I’d like to share my ideas of “Being a Good Listener” with you.
Good listening can always show respect and build good relationships with people.
Parents should listen to their children， so they will understand them better and trust each other. Teachers should also listen to their students so that they can increase their understanding and improve relationships. Students should listen to their classmates， then their friendship will be increased and they will help each other.
We’d better be patient while listening. Don’t forget to keep silent while listening. In a word， good listening can really make us get closer to each other.
Thank you for your listening!
