What is the interesting building in your country?

What is it located?

What is it used for?

Explain why you think it is the most interesting?

I think the interesting building is the Great Wall. It runs across north

China like a huge dragon. It was used to enemies. Soldiers used to keep watch on

the Great Wall. When the enemy came , fires were lit to warn other soldiers.

I think the Great Wall is the most interesting building. Because it is one

of the wonders of the world and it was one of the few man-made objects on earth

that could be seen by the astronauts who landed on the moon. Also, the Great Wall

has become a symbol of both Chinas proud history and its present strength.

1) Are there some old buildings in your hometown? Where and Describe it?

Wenfeng Tower, built in 1420, is located in the southern of Anyang City.

During the Ming and Qing dynasties, people came to the tower to worship the God

of Heaven and pray for a good harvest. Nowadays, it serves as a museum of history

. Murals of Wenfeng Tower give visitors a feel for the great artistic

achievements of ancient Chinese civilization. In a word, I think the Wenfeng Tower is the most interesting building, and it is the oldest building in my hometown.

2) Compare the differences between the constructions in your city with them in

20 years ago? Describe the building styles in detail?

The traditional buildings are made of the red brick and always have curved

eaves. Thousands of buildings look the same. But now, various buildings with

different colors and styles have been going up in my hometown. In addition, room

is equipped with kitchen and bathroom. This is very convenient.

3) What are peoples attitudes to old building today and that of our later

generation? Should we protect them? Why?

People, including our later generation, advocate that government should protect old buildings .Because old buildings represent the great artistic

achievements of ancient Chinese civilization.

4) What role do you think the old and modern buildings play in the society?

Oh, modern buildings are for us to live and work, while old buildings are for us to visit and research.

5) Compare the differences between house and apartment?

In China, there is a big yard beside house, where we can plant some flowers

and trees etc. But house is more expensive. Apartment is convenient and cheap but small
