Dear Alex,

On hearing that you are planning to study in China, I decide to write you a letter to recommend a university to you. My recommendation is Hunan University, which is one of the most outstanding universities in China.

The reasons why I recommend this university can be listed as follows. First of all, Changsha, where Hunan University is located, is such a fantastic city that it owns many amazing museums in which you can explore the mystery and prosperity of ancient China. Furthermore, you can eat a lot of famous traditional Chinese food and snacks, which Changsha is famous for. Most important of all, Hunan University has a high reputation for its academic contributions to the world and the campus is just beautiful.

I truly hope that you can come to Hunan University to start your college life and I’m looking forward to your arrival. If you have any questions about the university or the city I mentioned above, please feel free to contact me for further information.

Sincerely yours,

Li Ming


Dear Friend,

I am writing this letter to recommend to you a place that you can learn Chinese well. And this is Peking University, which is a first-class one for foreigners to master Chinese.

The primary factors for my recommendation are as follows. For one thing, this university has a large number of professional teachers who are good at teaching Chinese and have a great master of language skills. Therefore, you can have an easier grasp of Chinese characters and related knowledge. For another, there are many foreign students that share the same backgrounds with you, so you can study Chinese more comfortable with them in this university.

I hope that you will find this recommendation helpful and worthy of attention.

Yours sincerely,

Li Ming


Dear Alex,

This is Li Ming, a senior student from Peking University. And I am writing this letter with my full heart for the purpose of formally introducing the environmental protection situation in modern China.

It is well known that a better and sounding environment matters profoundly, and exerts a major influence on our daily life. As we have witnessed, during the past decades, China has already introduced some effective and proactive measures. Besides, the education department concerned has already tried its best to make the public aware of the great benefits of protecting the environment, such as holding a series of lectures.

Thanks to the joint efforts from the government as well as the public, the environmental situation in modern China is becoming even better. Thanks a lot for your attention to this letter. What I really appreciate is your interest in the development of China.

Yours sincerely,

Li Ming

The Chinese family ideas are related with her cultural traditions. Harmonious big families used to be very admirable, and it was not uncommon for four generations to live under the same roof. With this convention, many young couples would continue to live with the parents. However, this practice is changing. With the improvement of the housing condition, more and more young couples choose to live away from the parents. But they still have close relations. Many elderly people help take care of their grandchildren and their children spare time to visit them, especially on important occasions like the Spring Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival.
