My first experience of learning a foreign language was with French. I chose French for some reasons. Firstly, it is necessary to have some knowledge of a foreign language for people nowadays. Secondly, I want to study in France some day. Thirdly, there’re several famous French books at home, and I want to read them.
During my high school years, I learned ninth and tenth-grade French.
Ninth-grade French was very difficult for me. I had trouble learning vocabulary and remembering words. I spent hours every week on word cards, but this way did not work well for me. And I didn’t like the textbook. It had a lot of grammar exercises and short talks between two American students who visited Paris. We had to do many grammar exercises for homework. In the end, I got “C’s” in ninth-grade French. In tenth-grade French, I got “C’s” in the final tests. However, I wasn’t as worried about getting “D’s” or even “F’s” in French as I had been in ninth grade. The classes see med easier and the lessons in the textbook seemed interesting to me. We spent more time using the language in activities like role plays, and less time on grammar practice than the last year.

Tree Planting Day is coming. How can you plant a tree in the right way and make sure it stays alive? Here is some advice on planting trees.
First choose the right tree for the right environment. For example, if the climate is hot, you may plant a palm (棕榈) tree. If you’re in Beijing, you should choose trees like poplars (白杨树) and willows (柳树) to plant. The climate is right for them here in Beijing.
The next step is to choose a right place to plant the young tree. Usually a good place is where the earth is thick. When a good place is chosen, you can dig a deep hole for the tree. The hole should be larger than the roots.
Then you’d better hold the top of the young tree and make sure it is straight, while others cover the roots with soil. Once the roots are covered, the soil above needs to be tightly (牢固地) packed, or it is not good to the roots.
After the soil is all in place, the new tree should be watered well. Next you have to take care of the trees. It won’t rain much until June. The trees will easily die during the three dry months if they are not given enough water.
