大运河(Grand Canal)是世界上最长的人工河,北起北京市,南至杭州市。它是中国在历史上最宏伟的工程项目之一。大运河兴建于公元4新世纪,公年13世纪初完工。建造之初是为了更好地运送粮食作物,之后也用来运送别的产品。大运河沿途地区慢慢发展趋势变成中国的工业核心。一直以来,大运河对中国的社会认知充分发挥了关键功效,强有力地推动了南北地域间的员工来往和文化交往。

The Grand Canal is the longest man-made river which ex-tends all the way from Bejing in the north to Hangzhou in the south, and one of the grandest projects in the Chinese history. The construction of the canal was started in the 4th century BC and was completed in the 13th century. It was first built for grain transportation and later also for trans-portation of other commodities. The areas along the canal have gradually developed into the industrial and commercial centres of China. For a long period of time, the canal has been playing a significant role in the development of Chi-nese economy,greatly enhancing the personnel exchange and cultural communication between northern and southern regions.



Directions : Suppose your school is organizing an orientationprogram to help the freshmen adapt to the new environment and academic studies . You are now to write a proposal , which may include Itsaim,duration, participants and activities . You will have 30 minutes to write the proposal. You should write atleast 120 words but no more than 180 words.


To whom it may concern ,

I’m a junior from Law School . The new semester will begin anda group of newbies are about to arrive .In order to help them adapt to the new environment and academic studies ,I propose that an orientation program should be held during the first week of this September .

The program is to help freshmen learn what they will confront in the coming college life by passing out necessary materials and explaining their questions about campus activities .So volunteers needed in this program should be those who are sophomores or juniors and are ready to help others . The program will start on1st of next month and all participants should gather at 7 in the morning at the northeast corner of the Main Square to prepare for the leaflets and handbooks which will be distributed to freshmen .As new students are stepping onto the campus , volunteers should help them to carry their luggage ,pass out manuals , answer their possible questions and take them to their own dormitories .

I believe this program will be successfully held and it will greatly help freshmen to feel welcomed and warm in a strange but friendly environment.

Best wishes
