Dear Professor Cook,
I am writing on behalf of the Students’ Union to recommend the famous Forbidden City in our city to you.
The details are listed as following. To begin with, it is in this place that the emperor and his family live. We can know of the daily life of the old upper class in China by visiting it,which will bring great value to our research in this area. What is more, the Forbidden City has witnessed the thousands of history of China, so you can enrich your knowledge about China by visiting it. Last but not least, it is a brave city, which witnesses lots of difficulties and storms. We can learn the spirit of brave at the same time.
I hope you can find my recommendation useful and look forward to discuss it in details with you.
As is vividly depicted in the picture, in the first picture there are a lot of books besides a boy, but he doesn’t read any of them. By contrast, the second one portrays that another boy makes a plan of reading: 20 books one year. In fact, the phenomenon in the picture doesn’t surprise us at all. Simple as it is, the intended meaning of the picture is worth our reflecting.
Undoubtedly, the cartoonist aims at reminding us of the significance of reading and knowledge. At the top of the list, we should attach importance to reading mainly due to that it can enable us to ameliorate ourselves so we can be qualified for future career promotion, and be ready for meeting the forthcoming challenges. What’s more, we ought to place a high value on the role played by knowledge in personal growth. Put it another way, in this ever-changing world, knowledge accumulation is to personal growth what water is to fish. To sum up, if reading and knowledge miss our attention in any possible way, we will suffer a great loss beyond imagination.
Hence, it is vital for us to derive positive implications from the above picture. For one thing, we should frequently use it to enlighten the young. For another, we should cultivate the awareness of teenagers that reading is very vital. Only by doing so, can we become winner in the face of difficulties.
