A letter to protect environment essay

我们写这封信是寻求帮助。我们的家乡过去曾经是一个美丽的地方,茂密的树林和绿茵茵的草地到处可见。但是近来,人们为了盖楼房和种庄稼,砍伐的树越来越多。随着时间的推移,整改树林几乎被毁,青山变成了荒山,结果是沙尘暴时时袭击我们,尤其是在春天。沙尘暴给我们带来了很多困难。

我们真切希望人们能够意识到不注意保护环境的可怕结果。我们不应该伐树,而应该爱护森林,多植树,以便改变我们的生活环境。


We are writing to you for your help. Our hometown used to be a beautiful place in the past. Thick trees and green grass could be seen everywhere. But recently, people have cut down more and more trees in order to build houses and grow more crops. As time has gone on, the whole forest has almost been destroyed and the green hills have changed into the wasteland. As a result, sandstorms strike us now and then, especially in spring. We suffer a lot from sandstorms.

We do hope that all people realize the terrible results if we don’t pay enough attention to our environment. Instead of cutting trees down, we should take good care of the forests and plant more trees so as to improve our living conditions.


Environmental problems are becoming more and more serious these years.

最近几年,环境问题越来越严重了。

We hope an appeal to the whole society would be made in the newspaper.

希望报社能够为此向全社会发出呼吁。

Stop Thief

Summer vacation was coming. Our teacher asked us to help our parents with housework.  I promised my mother that I would do the housework once a day.

One day, I was walking in the street, holding a bottle of oil I had just bought. Suddenly I caught sight of a young man who was running fast with a purse in his hand. “Stop thief! stop thief!” cried a woman, running after him. At once I knew what had happened. An idea flashed through my mind. In no time I threw the bottle at the young man. The bottle fell to the ground and broke. The thief couldn’t stop himself and slipped on the oil and the broken bottle. Together with some nearby people, I rushed up and put my hands on the young man. A policeman came and caught him. The woman got back her purse. Many good words were said to me. I felt quite happy.

I walked home with great pleasure. No sooner had I opened the door than I heard a voice, ” Be quick, bring me the oil! I am cooking!” “Oil?” My God! I had forgotten about it completely!

Stop Thief


暑假到了,老师要求我们帮助家长做家务。我向妈妈许诺一天做一件事。

 

一天,我走在路上,手里提着一瓶刚买的油。突然,我看到一个年轻男子飞快地跑着,手里拿着一个钱包,一位女士在后面追,“抓小偷!抓小偷!”我立即明白了所发生的的事情,一个念头在我的脑海里闪过。我随手把油瓶扔向年轻人,瓶子落在地上摔碎了。小偷躲闪不及,踩在油和玻璃碎片上滑倒了。我和周围的人上前扭住她。一个警察赶到将小偷抓获。女士拿回钱包,周围的揉揉都夸奖我,我感到非常高兴。

我心情愉快的走回家,一开门就听到:“快点,把油给我!我正在做饭!”“油?” 天哪!我把它忘的一干二净!

Li Ziqi(李子柒), a Chinese internet celebrity(网红,wǎng hóng) who cooks in village became the first Chinese-language creator with more than 10 million followers on YouTube. Subscribers(订阅者,dìng yuè zhě) watch(观看,guān kàn) her in the quiet countryside(农村,nóng cūn), farming, picking and finally, turn that freshness into delicious dishes.

Food documentaries in China, Do you know Li Ziqi

Ten years ago, CCTV’s food documentary “A Bite of China(《舌尖上的中国》)”, ushered in the “public age” of Chinese documentaries(纪录片,jì lù piàn) and spurred the creation of food documentaries(美食纪录片).

According to incomplete(不完全的,bù wán quán de) statistics, after the popularity of “A Bite of China”, more than 100 food documentaries have been made in the past few years, which is a prosperous scene(繁荣景象,fán róng jǐng xiàng) never seen in the country’s food documentary industry.

“There is no country in the world that has a food story like this.” Zhang Tongdao, director of the documentary center at Beijing Normal University, once told Nanfang Daily in an interview.

But some of those documentaries fall into the stereotype(刻板印象,kè bǎn yìn xiàng), where the story was not told in a proper way.

What kind of documentary can win audiences(观众,guān zhòng) over after “A Bite of China”?

Just like Li Ziqi’s videos, which integrates farming(务农,wù nóng ), rural life(田园生活,tián yuán shēng huó), and gourmet dishes. It seems like those with high ratings on Douban(豆瓣), a Chinese rating website have gone out of their own style.

Short videos(短视频,duǎn shì pín) are also more convenient(方便,fāng biàn) for the millions watching on smartphones(智能手机,zhì néng shǒu jī ).

Micro-documentaries such as “Food for one person”, “World of Hot-pot”, “One-meter bento” and “The tale of cookie” have made their mark. Its fresh and pleasant rhythm(节奏,jié zòu) and loving eating atmosphere(氛围,fēn wéi) are popular among netizens(网友,wǎng yǒu), and the form of its short videos is more in line with the habit of “Internet generation” viewers to browse(浏览,liú lǎn) in fragments(片段,piàn duàn).

Ten minutes long, the cooking and presentation process is just right to satisfy people’s curiosity(好奇心,hào qí xīn) and patience(耐心,nài xīn).

Good looking and good taste are the basic requirements(基本要求,jī běn yāo qiú) for a successful food documentary. How to make a greasy kitchen, especially the kitchen table environment of many small stalls(小摊,xiǎo tān) become “clean” and delicious is a challenge(挑战,tiǎo zhàn) to the documentary on food.

From rice noodles(米线,mǐ xiàn) to deep-fried dough sticks(油条,yóu tiáo), one dish at a time,one episode with one story.

“Breakfast China(《早餐中国》),” a micro-documentary presenting breakfasts at small stalls across China, zooms in and focuses on the food detail in pots to solve this problem.

“This is what real life is, not fancy, but tasty,” commented fans on Douban.
