Honesty is the Best Policy. (诚实乃上策。)
There is an English proverb saying Honesty is the best policy. It tells us the importance of honesty. What are the benefits of honesty? If you are honest to others, they will be honest to you in return. When you are sad, they will comfort you. When you are in trouble, they will help you.
It is usually better to be honest than dishonest. Sometimes honesty may get you in trouble or hurt someone, but on the whole telling the truth is less harmful than lying.
In a word, honesty not only brings us honor and friendship, but also material gains. Honesty is the best policy we can take.

My Family （我的家庭，我的父母，我的老师之类可用）
As the old saying goes, East, west, home is the best. Whenever I’m tired, I can have a good rest at home. Whenever I feel sad, my parents will come to comfort me. Whenever I’m happy, I can share my joy with my family members. I live in Shanghai. There are two bedrooms and a living room in my home. Although the flat is not big, I feel comfortable to live there. It is near my company, so I can ride a bike to work everyday. During the weekends, I will do some housework and study English at home. I love my home. It is the best place ever.
Parents are the best teachers（父母是最好的老师）
Parents are the best teachers. Firstly, parents stay with children every day. Children will regard them as examples and learn from them. If the parents are polite, the children will be polite. Secondly, parents influence children with their words and behaviors. If parents always are nice to others and say good words about others, their children will also be kind to other children. If parents are good to old people, when the parents are getting older, the children will be good to them too. To sum up, from what has been discussed above we can draw the conclusion that parents are our best parents.

Television has its good as well as bad sides. It makes us informed of daily news, lets us know the outside world, provides lessons for learners, and it has brought joy and interest into people’s lives.
Unfortunately, some television programs have been extremely harmful to the young. Violent movies are shown on TV programs. Children regard the murders as heroes or models, so they imitate. Therefore there happened many murders or shooting cases in American campuses. What a big harm.
So young people should learn to get ride of the bad influences of TV and learn to make use of the advantages that TV brings us.
My Favorite Sport（我最喜欢的运动）
My favorite sport is basketball. It’s part of my life. I began to play basketball in my childhood. I still remember the good old days when I played with my classmates after school. Later on, as I grew up, almost everything changed, but this sport-playing basketball remained and my love of it grew even stronger.
I love this sport because it brings joys and health to my life. When I got tired from office work, I went to the sports ground and felt refreshed. If there were worries and cares from daily life. I went to the sports ground. There everything went away except basketball. It is basketball that keeps me in good shape and mood.
Travel Arrangement （旅游计划）
I plan to go to Jiuzhaigou in Sichuan province for my summer holiday. It’s a beautiful place with fresh air, beautiful natural scenery like waterfall, lake and high mountains. Because many films and TV series have been made here, it is very famous. What’s more, I am very busy and exhausted this year, so I want to go for a relaxation. I plan to stay there for a week and travel with a tour group. We will climb mountains and visit some amazing sceneries. I believe I will have a most unforgettable experience there.
