Styles of Western art have changed many times.Art is influenced by the customs and faith of a people.During the Middle Ages,the main aim of painters was to represent religious themes.Artists were interested in creating respect and love for God.In the Renaissance,people focased more on humans and less on religion.Artists tried to paint people and nature as they really were.Perspective was used in paintings which made people convinced they were looking though a hole in the wall at a real scene.
In the late 19th century.Europe changed a great deal from a mostly agricultural society to a mostly industrial one.The impressionists were the first to paint outdoors.They had to paint quickly and their paintings were not detailed as those of earlier painters.Today people accepted impressionists paintings as the beginning of modern art.Some modern art is abstract while some is realistic.
There are various why people write poetry.Some poems tell a story or describe something in a way that will give the reader a strong impression.Others try to convey certain emotions.Poets use many different forms of poetry to express themselves.In this test,however,we will look at a few of the simpler forms.
With so many different forms of poetry to choose from,students may eventually want to write poems of their own.
I think my long and active life must be due to the healthy life I live.
Every time you feel like smoking a cigarette,remind yourself that you are a non-smoker.Reread the list of benefits you wrote earlier.
There is no doubt that the earth is becoming warmer and that it is human activity that has caused this global warming rather than a random but natural phenomenon.
All scientists subscribe to the view that the increase in the earth is temperature is due to the burning of fossil fuels like coal,natural gas and oil to produce energy.
University Students Like Reading Newspapers in English
I am a student at Renmin University of China in Beijing. As a regular who goes to the university library’s newspaper room, I have discovered that many students like reading newspaper in English, especially China Daily.
The reason that China Daily is popular among students is not difficult to explain. A major characteristic of China Daily is the conciseness of its articles. Most of the articles are brief, clearly written and informative. Many students are busy with their studies and don’t have much spare time. However, by reading China Daily, readers can get up-to-date news about China and the world and enhance their reading capabilities at the same time and, more importantly, it doesn’t cost them a lot of time. In this sense, China Daily is providing a sort of “fast-food” to its readers. Furthermore, China Daily also helps its readers improve their writing skills. For those students who find English compositions difficult, articles on China Daily serve as perfect examples.
Many fellow students told me that they had learned a lot from China Daily about China and the world. As a result they also improved their reading and writing and got high marks in English exams. Yours Sincerely,
