A Day in My Summer Vacation
Last summer I spent a two-week vacation at my aunt’s. My aunt lived alone in a mountain village, with a small river winding its course everyday.
One morning I went fishing in the river, where two women washed clothes. I found a most favorable point. Casting out my line, I waited anxiously for a bite. Suddenly there came a cry: “Help! Help!” I looked in the direction of the call and saw a boy falling into the river. Throwing the fishing pole, I dashed over like an arrow, jumped into the river and swam very quickly towards the boy. Then together with his mother I carried the boy on my back to a nearby hospital. That boy was saved. The mother gave me a thousand thanks.
Back to my fishing place, I found my fishing pole floating on the water. I managed to get it. But to my great surprise, there was a big fish on the hook..

An Unforgettable Accident
It was a rainy and windy morning. The sky was gloomy, the temperature was low, and the street was still deserted. I was on my way to school A little school boy came out of a house, walking hurriedly along. When he passed me, I heard him reciting the multiplication tables. He was still reciting when he started to cross the street.
He was too preoccupied in his study, and did not look before he crossed. Suddenly, a speeding car came around the corner. I was terrified and shouted at him to stop. But it was too late. The car ran straight towards him. Bang! He was knocked down.
I rushed towards the boy, crying for help. But the driver of the car continued his journey, ran away from his responsibility, without a further look at the unconscious boy.
The boy was still bleeding when the police, who had been informed by a passer-by, arrived with their ambulance. The police began to investigate. I had witnessed the accident, but did not have a look at the license number of the car. So I was no help, and they let me go back to class.
When I picked up the evening newspaper, my eyes were caught by one of the head-lines “Schoolboy Killed in Car Accident.” These words sent me into a sorrowful mood, and have since remained in my memory after all these years.

Our New English Teacher
Miss Emily is our English teacher this term. She has been here for one year but I have never attended her classes before as she has taught in the first grade. I have, however, seen her very often and heard a great deal about her. She is known to be a teacher of considerable ability and author of a number of books. I am really lucky to be able to attend her lectures this term.
She is of medium height, about twenty five years of age. Though young and attractive in appearance she is dignified and reserved. She is somewhat strict at times but never or stern. Her patience is really wonderful She will never give up explaining until every one understands As she does not speak Chinese she has to make drawing sometimes, and I think she draws unusually well.
Her method of teaching is different from that of our former teacher. Instead of explaining fully every new lesson beforehand she just give us assignments and let us work out ourselves. She explains only during the time of recitation when she will explain and correct mistakes. In correcting compositions she follows the same rule. Instead of making corrections she just marks out all mistakes and asks us to do the correcting ourselves. This helps us to remember the errors so as to avoid repetition.
Her method means more work for us to do in the evening, as we have to consult the dictionary again and again, but we feel that we have been making a rapid progress. We are making much fewer mistakes in our compositions, and we have formed the habit of relying on ourselves. We always consult the dictionary when we have some doubt as to the meaning or spelling of any word. Every one of our class is now talking bout our new English teacher who deserves our love and respect.
