Eight Grade English Composition Samples
Unit 1 My School Life
I like my school life very much. There are many interesting activities in my school, such as sports day and talent show. I always take part in them with my classmates. We also have great teachers who teach us many useful things. I especially enjoy English lessons, as I am able to communicate with foreigners confidently.
Unit 2 My Family and Friends
My family is very important to me. My parents are always supportive and caring. They encourage me to do my best in everything and reward me when I achieve something. I have a younger sister who I love very much. We spend a lot of time together, watching movies or playing games. As for my friends, they are like a second family to me. We share our secrets and help each other when in need.
Unit 3 Travel
Last summer, I went on a trip to Beijing with my family. It was an unforgettable experience. We visited many famous attractions, such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. We also tried many delicious local foods. I was fascinated by the culture and history of Beijing and hope to visit it again someday.
Unit 4 Science and Technology
Technology has changed our lives in many ways. We can now communicate with people who are far away from us, and we can access vast amounts of information online. However, we should be cautious about our use of technology and not let it control us. As for science, it has helped us understand the world better and find solutions to various problems.
Unit 5 Festivals and Celebrations
Chinese New Year is my favorite festival. In my hometown, we have a tradition of setting off firecrackers to scare away evil spirits. We also have a big family reunion dinner and exchange red envelopes with money inside. It is a time for family and friends to come together and enjoy each other’s company.
Unit 6 Sports and Health
Sports are important for our physical and mental well-being. I enjoy playing basketball with my friends after school. We not only exercise but also have fun and bond with each other. It is also important to maintain a balanced diet and get enough sleep to stay healthy.
Unit 7 Environment and Protection
We should all take responsibility for protecting the environment. We can do simple things like turning off the lights when leaving a room and using public transportation instead of driving. We should also be aware of the impact that our actions have on the environment and try to reduce our carbon footprint.
Unit 8 Society and Culture
Cultural differences can sometimes lead to misunderstandings, but it is important to be open-minded and respectful of other cultures. By learning about other cultures, we can broaden our perspectives and appreciate the diversity of our world. We should also strive to make our society a better place by promoting equality and tolerance.
