There are many arguments about the advantages and disadvantages of examinations. Some people think that examinations can help them review the lessons regularly, while others maintain that too many examinations have frustrated them.
To me, I think an examination is a good thing for both teachers and students. Teachers can find out how much the students have grasped and then improve their teaching; students, on the other hand, will learn what their weak points are and then study even harder.
All in all, we should not waste time arguing whether examinations are good or not. What we should do is to try to improve the exam system and try to adjust it to our different requirements.
We grow great by dreams
The question was once asked of a highly successful businessman, “How have you done so much in your lifetime?”
He replied, “I have dreamed. I have turned my mind loose to imagine what I wanted to do. Then I have gone to bed and thought about my dreams. In the night I dreamt about my dreams. And when I awoke in the morning, I saw the way to make my dreams real. While other people were saying, ‘You can’t do that, it is impossible,’ I was well on my way to achieving what I wanted. As Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the US, said, ‘We grow great by dreams.’”
“All big men are dreamers.” They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter’s evening.
Some of us let these dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nourish them through bad days until they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
So please, don’t let anyone steal your dreams, or try to tell you they are too impossible. “Sing your songs, and dream your dreams, hope your hope and pray your prayer.”
One possible version:
The passage is about a successful businessman whose dreams contributed greatly to his success. He emphasized the importance of dreams and suggested that people should have dreams and never give them up.
What is known to us is that a dream is of great importance to one’s growth and success. once you decide what your dream is, you know where to go, and which way to take.
Now my dream is that I’ll try my best to be the study winner. Now everything I do is close to my dream. I feel life is filled with hope and is colorful, and I have enough confidence to realize my dream. Of course, the path from where you are to where you want to get is not always smooth and straight. Therefore, an optimistic, positive mind is necessary in the process of your seeking your dream.
In a word, only if you have a dream will you have the chance of realizing it.2017宜宾中考英语作文篇3

In many teachers' eyes, homework offers a good method to strengthen the knowledge the students have obtained, yet they ignore the disadvantages that homework brings. For one thing, too much homework will take up all the spare time of students', leaving them unable to enjoy the rest of their lives; for another, too much homework will do great harm to students' health, both physically and mentally.
