In Liren Middle School there are just three grades. There is grade 7, 8 and 9th grade. In the following papers written by some of the students, you will read that they refer to themselves as being in either grade 1 or grade 2. This just means that either they are in their first year or second year of Liren Middle School. So, grade 1 is actually the 7th grade and grade 2 is the 8th grade. Also, I have not altered their writing. There actual sentence structure has been left intact.

I had to put the following two letters in as actual photos of each letter. I wanted to show;
1) In the letter on the left, the handwriting of the student and
2) The letter on the right showing you just how sincere these students are.

My name is Zhang Zhijing. I am interested in science and Chinese history. I can think as an adult while sometimes my behavior is just like kids (to tell the truth). I can play the piano well but I will feel quite embarrassed when people talk about my piano skills. I love classical music and pop music, such as "The Emperor" and "The Summer Midnight Dream". I have been to many cities in China and Australia. I always go to museums because of my great interest in history. I am not sure about my future job. Maybe about history or science. I love China because I love its history and food. I can't live without Chinese food. When I was in Australia, I even can't stand the food there.
I'm a girl from Class 12, Grade 8. I think I'm a strange girl because I have different hobbies from others. I like traveling when I was a child but when I grow up, I find traveling is not an easy thing. I like traveling by myself but my parents won't agree. And I don't have enough time to travel where I want to go.
One day I knew there was a subject called psychology. Then I was interested in it. I started to buy books about it. And want to learn all about psychology. After that, I want to be a psychologist.
You won't believe that my grandmother a seventy-five years old people likes Snooker. When there is a Snooker competition, she will sit in front of the t.v. and watch the games.

I love China because I think Chinese has long history and Chinese has lots of delicious food.
