Currently in this constantly changing world, learningbecomes a seemingly convenient but actually more complex matter. Asan old saying goes,”Learning is a daily experience and a lifetimemission”.Apparently, the meaning of this saying is that if we truly desireto learn something, we are supposed to devote our life toit.
There are several reasons accounting for this viewpoint.For one thing, learning itself is an actually complicated andpainful matter, and as a result, it is advisablefor us to commit much more time even our whole life to it. Foranother, it is exceedingly obvious that we are easy to forget whatwe learned, and accordingly, the significance of lifetime learningcannot be ignored. For example, memorizing vocabulary is commonlythe first step of preparing for an English test. However, it is pretty difficult for us to put a huge number of newwords in our mind. Therefore, we can divide these words into somegroups and spend some hours each day on it in order to remember andunderstand these words.
To sum up, lifelong learning lays a solid foundation tothe development of ourselves, and only when we realize thesignificance of lifetime learning can we understand theessence of learning.
In China, there’s a saying that "The landscape of Guilin tops that of any other place under heaven." In light of this, I will recommend Guilin as the first destination of my foreign friend’s trip to China.
Overlooking the Li Jiang River, Guilin is located in the northeast of Guangxi. The name was derived from the cassia trees of the location. The trees line the streets of the town with yellow flowers blossoming every September, filling the air with sweet scent. Guilin is a place of breath-taking scenery. From ancient times, Guilin has been noted for its elegant landscape. It features beautiful mountains, clear rivers, grotesque rocks andmystic crags, which is a feast for the eyes. Sitting on a bamboo raft drifting down the river, visitors can see the varied shapes of the pinnacles reflected in the water. They will feel as if they were in a scroll of Chinese landscape painting.I believe that my foreign friend will marvel at the unparalleled beauty of Guilin.
If I’m the guide of my foreign friend’s visit to our campus, I will choose the Cherry Avenue as our first destination.
As the name implies, the Cherry Avenue is lined with hundreds of neatly-placed cherry blossom trees. It is about 200 meters long and a major scenic spot in our campus. In spring when the cherry trees bloom, the flowers are so dense that looking from a distance, it seems as if the road were surrounded by pink-hued clouds. Especially when there is a breeze, petals of cherry blossoms flutter and fall gently like a drizzle. Such breath-taking scene will put visitors into a kind of trance.What’s more special is the buildings along the avenue. Built in early 1900s, they are now called "cherry blossom castle". They’ve witnessed the history of our school and even our country. You can learn a lot about our school there.
In a word, a tour to the Cherry Avenue is both an amazing sight-seeing and a great opportunity to know about the culture of our school.
