In recent years, with the popularity of digital devices, students pay little attention to their handwriting. As a result, their handwriting is not so good as it was in the past. In order to protect our Chinese characters and write both nicely and neatly, we’d like to offer some suggestions.
Firstly, spend less time online so that we can have more time to read and take notes. Moreover, we’d better form the habit of practicing handwriting and keeping diaries every day. Besides, it is better to write to our relatives and friends rather than send emails. As the saying goes, “The style is the man.” Beautiful and neat handwriting is beneficial to us students. So please attach great importance to our handwriting in future.
Let’s take action now!
How is everything going with you? How glad I am to hear that you are coming/will come to study with us for a year as an exchange student! I’m writing to give you some information which may help to make your stay here more pleasant(表目的）. The details are as follows.
What I want to say first is that the weather will be very changeable in the following days with temperatures between 15℃ and 30℃ according to the forecast. Therefore, you need to bring some coats in case of rain. In the second place, as for food, we mainly eat a variety of wheat-flour products and rice. Of course fresh fruit，vegetables and all kinds of meat are also available. What’s more, you may find teachers here talk more in class and you will need to get used to longer school hours. Remember，whatever problems you have，we are all willing to help.
Such is what I want to say. Hope my suggestion will be of help to you. Looking forward to meeting you.
Yours Li Hua
Dear Li Hua,
I am so sorry to hear that you are having trouble in learning English. However, the situation is so easy to change if you take my advice. Here are some tips for you.
Firstly, words play an important part in improving your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. So you should remember words every day. Secondly, practice makes perfect. The best way to learn English well, I think, is to learn and use English at the same time. The most important of all, interest is the best teacher. Find happy ways to learn it, such as, reading more English storybooks or novels, watching more English cartoon TVs or movies, and so on.
I do hope my suggestions may be of great help to you.
I am writing to convey my gratitude for your kind help and care during my stay in your country, without which I wouldn’t have enjoyed it so much.
Guided by you, I had a chance to visit some places of interest in England and experience such unique culture as well as beautiful scenery. Thanks to your generous help, I do believe that I have a better understanding of your country and culture. What’s more, during the week, the comfortable room, delicious meals and especially your friendly family made me feel at home.
I will be more than pleased if I have the opportunity to repay your kindness. I will show you around in China. I am looking forward to your coming.

Dear Mr. Wang,
I’m writing to tell you a piece of good news and express my thanks for helping me improve my English.
Now, I’m a freshman in South China Normal University. That’s all because of our careful guidance. Without your help, I wouldn’t have made such great progress in English, let alone been admitted to a good university. So I’m very grateful to you for that. I still remember the days when you taught me English in Grade 3 of senior school. My English was once poor, but you were very patient with me and tried to tutor me after class. It was your help and encouragement that made my dream come true.
From the bottom of my heart. I hope more and more of your students can go to their ideal colleges. Wish you a healthy body and a happy life!
Again, I sincerely thank you for your help!
I am Li Hua, one of your students in Oral English class. I am writing to seek help from you.
You know, I come from a junior high school in the countryside, where teachers don’t speak much English in class. That is why I am not good at listening or speaking. Now I find it really hard to follow you in class. I hope you can recommend some listening materials to me so that I can improve my listening after class. Besides, could I practice speaking with you for half an hour at weekends at your convenient time? I think it can help me improve my spoken English.
I would be grateful if you could lend me a helping hand.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I’m Li Hua, a Senior Three student of Yucai Middle School, who is also one of your faithful customers. I’m writing to you to make a complaint about your goods, whose details are as follows.
To begin with, I ordered some books on your website half a month ago(on Double 11), but I didn’t receive them until yesterday. To my disappointment, the books are far from satisfying, as I found some pages missing in each set of books and some books were even broken/damaged, greatly affecting my normal reading. To make matters worse, most of the books were fakes(pirated) with a poor printing. Under these circumstances, I tried to contact you/I tried to make contact with you, but there was on answer/reply.
I am really annoyed about it, and I believe you will take my complaint seriously. I insist you take back those you sent out and replace them or give me a full refund. I would appreciate it if you could give due attention to this matter. Looking forward to your early reply.
Yours, Li Hua 09 祝贺信
