Green Plan in Wonder City

Make new out of the old!

Since 1996, Wonder City has started a green plan and has been greatly successful in many ways. Places that were not used anymore, like railways, factories, and open lands, have been changed and brought to new life. They have now become parks, restaurants, museums, or shopping centers. They look fresh and clean with trees, flowers, and pieces of art. Olde River, for example, is now a pink belt in the spring with born-to-smiles on both of its sides. They are beautiful and smell great. Many people take a walk or go bicycling along the banks of the river. Because of this plan, the city has become cleaner and younger. Every year in May, a big green festival is celebrated in Wonder City. People from other cities go to the festival to learn how to make their own cities more beautiful.

Dear Mr. Hu,

My family moved here from England three months ago. I can't speak Chinese well, and it's difficult for people to understand me. I'm losing confidence.

Could you please tell me what I should do?

Katie


Dear Katie,

I'm glad that you let me know about your problem. Here are some things you can do:

  2. Try to practice speaking with your teachers and classmates. Don't be afraid.
  3. Talk to Nanako and Yu-kim. Nanako is from Japan, and Yu-kirn is from Korea. They might be able to give you some advice.
  4. Some foreign students told me that watching Happy Times on TV can help. The language is easy.

Please try these ideas and see if you can do better. Don't worry too much. I have confidence in you.

Mr. Hu

My dear friends,

My family and I moved into our country house one month ago. The kids are planning to give a party at our new house. I hope all of you can come. The party will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. There will be lots of food and drinks.

Together with this letter is a map to our house. After you get off the train, take the road in front of the station. Follow it and you’ll see a chicken farm. Don’t make any turns. Keep going and you’ll see a bridge. Cross the bridge and there will be a big tree on your left. Walk past the tree, take the first right turn, and then walk for five more minutes. You’ll see several houses. My house is at the end of the road, next to the river.

The story happened two months ago. I was on a bus that was packed with almost everyone in the city. I 39 my friend Neal to see a show.
