As we all know, "Failure is the mother of success." But I just want to say"Success is the baby of confidence."
First of all, confidence makes us happier in our life. Life is like a wonderful song, a bright and colorful painting. If confidence is with us in our life, we will find that life really becomes richer and more interesting.
Then, confidence makes us brave and courageous. If we lack confidence in ourselves, how can we overcome difficulties we meet with? If we have no confideuce in ourselves, how can we succeed in developing ourselves in the future?Without confidence, nothing can be accomplished. That is to say, if you want to win, you have to believe in yourself.
Finally, I would like to use the following words as our mutual encouragement:"If you think you can, you can."
Here's my idea. I think there's a lot of homework for us to do in recent days.
I knew it would be hard for us because the exam.
But I still hope you can give us less homework.Give us some time to rest.
We always tired in recent days. Thank you in advance.
And If possible,Please teach us some proper methods to learn English.
Because i think my English level is not yet.
And please give us more encouragement.Thank you my teacher.
I wish you happy everyday.

I’m very glad to receive your letter asking for my advice on how to prepare the English speech contest. Here are a few suggestions.
First of all, it’s important to get well prepared before the speech contest by practicing before a mirror. Besides, you had better use a brief and concise language in your speech so that you can leave a deep impression on the judges. When you are giving the speech, remember to keep smile and even if you forget your words, don’t be panic and just continue your speech, because no one will notice it. Wish you success in the speech!
参考词汇：temper n. 脾气，情绪
I’m sorry to know that you’re having such a bad time at the moment.
I'm sorry to know that you're having such a bad time at the moment. The truth is that everyone will have one of those periods when things seem to be going wrong, so you don't have to worry much. The important thing is to learn to control your temper so that you may not do or say anything you’ll regret. Here are three useful tips:
First, talk to someone you trust about how you feel. This is a good way of letting your anger out without hurting others or yourself. Second, go outdoors and play team games with your friends as physical exercise is an effective way to get rid of anger. And third, keep optimistic about your future. Such a positive attitude towards life can be helpful in lifting your spirits.
I hope you'll soon feel calmer and carry on as normal.
good morning, ladies and gentemen. this is li hua from senior three. i’m here today to share with you a good lesson from an overseas chinese student living in germany. it is a true story.
what was wrong you might wonder? the truth is, shortly aften he arrived in germany, this clever student found that it was easy to skip buying subway tickets. so, to save money, he often went without a ticket. as a result, he had been caught without a ticket in the subway three times.
that’s all for my speech. thank you!
honesty is the best policy
today i read an instructive speech, in which the speaker argues that honesty is the best policy by telling us a true story about an overseas chinese student who couldn’t find a job because of his dishonest records.
i can’t agree with the speaker more. honesty means all the difference between success and failure.
honesty will eventually bring people benefits while dishonesty may bring people short -term benefits but will surely bring disasters to them in the long run.
honesty is important in our study and future career .therefore, we should always remember honesty is the best policy and promise to be honest all our life.篇二：英语作文话题：有关诚信
being dishonest does great harm not only to other people but also to yourself. take the case of fake milk powder for example. after drinking this kind of milk, the babies had big heads while their legs and arms were still thin, which badly affected their
health. to our great relief, the producers got accused and punished for all the serious consequences in the end.
having the reputation of being honest and reliable will make other people trust you, which will provide you many benefits and give you opportunities that others may not get. being honest, you will find it easier to cooperate with others and people will be friendly to you and support you. in a sense, if life is a longjourney, honesty will be the backpack that should be taken along all the way.
let’s pick up our “backpack”—honesty, and start the wonderful journey!篇三：英语作文诚信教育

23.only by being honest, can we build up a harmonious and healthy society.
with the increase of exams, there are more and more students in senior three starting to use dishonest means in the exam. however, as is known to all, cheating is definitely prohibited in school. then why do some students still want to do it?
for one thing, there are so many exams in senior three that they are not patient enough to finish all of them. for another thing , they don’t want to let their parents and teachers down because of their bad grades.
as a matter of fact, cheating in the exam has a lot of disadvantages. firstly, teacher can’t help you in your study in a proper way through your fake grades. secondly, it may not be possible for you to judge yourself correctly. at last it’s unfair for those students who study hard.
since being dishonest in the exam does harm to ourselves and others, some strong and necessary measures must be carried out. of course, the school are supposed to make some related rules and regulations. but the most important part is that we student should try our best to finish every exam with our own effort.
girls and boys , thank you all for listening my speech here. today my topic is honesty. it’s true that there are some phenomenon of dishonest existing in our society. for example, some businessmen sell fake goods to customers for profit. in addition, some people use fake diploma for a good job,.
on the contrary, having the reputation of being honest and reliable will make people trust you, which provide you many benefits and give you opportunities that others may not get.
so , in our daily life, we students also should do our best to be honest in every aspect, such as not cheating in the exam and telling the true grades to our teachers and parents. only when all of us are honest, can we build up a harmonious society. that’s all! thank you!
i’m so glad to receive your letter. it’s a pleasure for me to tell you my opinion about honesty.
as is known to all, being honest is a traditional virtue in china, which means everyone of us should obey it.
however, there are truly some problems of dishonesty existing in china. for example some people use fake diploma to get a good job. what’s more, some students also cheat in exams.
as far as i’m concerned, although many problems of being dishonest are happening everyday, being since is still important for all of us. in a sense, if life is a long journey, honesty will be the backpack that should be taken along all the way. we both are students now., we still can make every effort to be honest, such as not telling malicious lies to anyone and face the truth bravely.what’s your opinion? please write me soon.

Directions: Someone put forward a proposal to adopt the “punch in” system in her memo in June 12, 2006. Write a memo to her with the information below. Your memo should be in no less than 100 words.
To: Mr. Brown manager of operations
From: Betty Green Supervisor
Subject: comments on the
Date: September 21
This is further to your memo dated back to June 12, 2006, in which you proposed that the employees adopt the “punch in” system.
I fully agree with you that we should take measures to increase the productivity and that we would a tighter control over the employees if the “punch in” system is adopted. However, honestly speaking, I don't think that adopting a tighter system will increase productivity. The most effective way to increase productivity, in my opinion, is to give the employees more incentives to work. I think we could further discuss other possibility of achieving this goal.
Your consideration of this suggestion would be highly appreciated.
Personal credit cards are becoming more common in China. Banks and other financial institutions are encouraging their customers to change the way they buy things. Credit cards, otherwise known as “plastic money”, are being offered on very good terms to encourage the change. Consumers will be able to “buy now, pay later”, and many see this as an advantage.
But people need to be careful. There are dangers associated with credit cards. Some people find it very easy to exceed their budget. They are tempted to purchase goods that they do not really need, and can become quickly overburdened by debt. The credit cards often charge a high rate of interest, which exacerbates the problems for these people.
However, used wisely credit cards can improve the quality of people’s lives. They can give people access to money to meet sudden unplanned expenses. Properly handled, they can let people control their expenditure and the monthly statements provide a record of where their money has gone.
2.Credit cards have had bad press over the past few months of the credit crunch they only cause more debt and have unfair rates of interest. . However, if a credit card is used in the correct way and you keep up with your payments, they can be very valuable in many aspects.
One of the most beneficial aspects of having a credit card is that it can help you to increase your credit score. If you have little borrowing experience, taking out a credit card helps to convey to other creditors that you are a responsible and reliable borrower.
Another benefit of owning a credit card is that it can be easier to buy things. Some companies, such as those in the travel sector like hotels, airlines and car rental companies prefer payment by credit card, and some do not accept cash payments at all. As well as this convenience, many card companies give insurance on large purchases. An example of this is when airline XL went bust in September,
A more obvious benefit of a credit card, and one of the main reasons people apply for a credit card, is that you have access to money during emergencies. If you resist the temptation of spending the money on your credit card, you are left with a good sum of money to use when you most need it. You only pay interest on purchases or
on cash withdrawals, so keeping a credit card at home (where you won't be able to spend on it) can be very valuable.

慰问信 （Notes of Sympathy on Illness, Injury and Material loss）
The news of your accident just reached me this morning. I’m greatly shocked to learn that you were knocked down by a car yesterday. How are you feeling today?
The only good thing about it is that your mother told me that you are progressing nicely, I hope that you are doing well after the operation, and that you’ll be out of the hospital in about a week. I’m coming to see you on Sunday and trust that your condition will remarkably improve by then.
A little package from Rose and me will reach you a day or two. We hope the small thing will interest you.
I am shocked to hear that you have a severe influenza and now are in hospital. I get this news from your mother and know you must be absent for half a month from the classes. Do be careful while you are ill.
Don’t worry about your lesson and I am willing to help you learn it when you return. We are best friends so I will never allow you to fall behind.
You can watch television or listen to radio programs to help pass the time and forget your pains while you recuperate. I do hope that I can see you soon and bring you some funny cartoons.
If there is anything you need me to do, just let me know. We all miss you and shall be happy when you are back.
The people of China have been very much in my thoughts over the past two weeks as I have watched, with mounting concern, the effects of the devastation caused by the terrible earthquake in Sichuan Province. It has been most impressive to see the marvellous way in which the Chinese humanitarian operations have brought swift and effective relief to those affected. I am particularly pleased that the Wenchuan Earthquake Orphan Fund has been established, to help the children who have lost their parents in the disaster.
I wanted to take this opportunity to send my deepest sympathy following this terrible tragedy to the people of China, and my most heartfelt condolences to all those who have lost loved ones.
My Prince's Charities are engaging ever more closely in China, including work to assist, in a small way, with the preservation of China's rich and diverse heritage. It would give me the greatest pleasure if we were able to develop these ties still further with, in particular, practical assistance from my Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment in planning the reconstruction of parts of Sichuan Province.
