You want to know sthe changes about my hometown. You know, great changes have taken place since 60 years ago.
In the past, the living conditions were very poor. There were not many buses or cars, and the roads were narrow. Usually, a big family was crowed into a small, dark house. Most families couldn’t get enough food. The communications were simple and slow. People kept in touch with their friends and relatives far away mainly by letter or telegram.
Thanks to the government, our hometown has developed rapidly in recent years. The living conditions are much better and more comfortable. The roads are wide. Some people have their own cars. Most of the people have lived in big new houses. Quite a few adults have mobile phones. Because of many good policies, I think our lives will become better and better.

With the development of the Internet, many people are used to shopping online. It has become a fashion in our daily life. Some of us students also join the group.
Shopping online has many advantages. Just by a click of the mouse, you can buy what you’re interested in without going outdoors. You can avoid getting tired and being trapped in the crowded people and cars and save time. When shopping online, you can choose from more varieties of goods, whose prices are generally lower.
Every coin has two sides. Its disadvantages are obvious, too. On the one hand, it’s very easy for you to buy goods different from the pictures you see on the Internert. On the other hand, shopping online may cause people to buy goods that are not badly needed. That’s a waste of money.
All in all, I love shopping online.
