? Recently, the ice bucket challenge has sparked a heated debate. Some are for it, while others are against it. From my perspective, I am totally in favor of this unique charity campaign with the following reasons. ? Firstly, it raises individuals’ awareness of ALS patients. With attractive and amusing videos posted by celebrities in different fields, a growing number of netizens begin to focus on the tribe of patients. Meanwhile, by accepting the challenge and donating money, celebrities exert a positive influence on common people. Admittedly, it’s the star effect that counts. ? Secondly, easy access to feeling the pain from ALS patients push participants inclined to give them a helping hand. Soaked in ice water, they may directly experience the process of being frozen. ? Last but not least, I deem, the most effective, is the nominating rule. Three more friends nominated, the charity triples, creating a prevalent and loving circulation where more and more people get involved. ? In a word, the widespread from celebrities to the public, the experience of being frozen as well as the loving circulation, all contribute to such a conducive activity.

For English composition,at first I thought the most important things are all these fancy words and complicated sentences.Then I began to found that the logical points and clear structure seem also indispensable.But finally,I get to know when it comes to a composition,no matter English or Chinese,what count are actually not the outer things but the one deeply inside.More specifically,they are your unique opinions,your comprehensive and exact advice and your sincere emotions.And from my point of view,to achieve these,one has to think more of the small daily things that he/she did,saw,heard,read and experienced.So try to put your reasonable and fresh ideas into the composition to make it impressive and contagious,and maybe one day you’ll find that you have made a big step on your English learning.
