It is impossible for us to make our country rich and strong without developing education. Why? Because education gives people knowledge and teaches them how to become good citizens so as to be able to serve their country. No wonder they say that education decides the progress, prosperity and civilization of a country.At present (Nowadays) most countries in (of) the world are enforcing compulsory education. It is necessary for all kinds of people, both rich and poor, to receive education. Taiwan is an exception as well not.
It is a matter of course that industry will bring us success, wealth and good luck. I am sure that a hard-working person can always succeed in the work which he wants to do. This is unchangeable truth.
Idleness is the opposite of industry. It is the source of all evil. An idle man only enjoys playing and making pleasures. That he is doomed to failure is of no doubt. We should not follow his example.
My native town is X. We have settled down here since my grandfather was a child. In other words, my family has lived here for more than one hundred years.

When I was six years old, I began to go to school. The first school (which) I attended was a primary school.

Though the people in the world are all opposed to war, they can by no means avoid it. This is indeed a regrettable thing.
War is very terrible. Everybody hears it with fear. In a war thousands and thousands of lives will be lost and a large amount of money (will be) wasted. It brings us untold miseries and damage.
To sum up, so long as war is unavoidable, human beings cannot enjoy lasting peace. How tragical their fate is!
We all wish (hope) to be happy, so we should take good care of our health.
Health is the best treasure (which) a man can possess. Money can do many things, but it cannot buy happiness. However, so long as man has good health, he can enjoy the pleasures of human life.
In order to insure good health we must pay attention to three things. They are-nourishing food, fresh air and proper exercise.
