2. Are the transport facilities to your home very good?
Yes, it’s quite convenient. There’s a subway station not far from where I live. Normally, I take it togo and off work. Plus, actually, a bus station is just near the community, butunfortunately, it’s very crowed during rush hour.
3. Can you describe the room you live in?
Well, my apartment is well decorated. Actually, I have a largecoffee table in front of the sofa, so I can put coffee, magazines and differenttypes of snacks on it. And also, the wall of my room is in light green whichmakes me feel like to be surrounded by the natural world.
4. What can you see when you look out the window of your room?
Sadly, there’s no magnificent scenery out ofmy window because you know, I live in an apartment in the city centre. However,I can see a small garden over my window, there’re someelderly people playing Tai Chi and doing exercises in the morning.
5. In the future, what type of place would you like to live in?
Well, I am thinking of, may be, I’d choosethe house near water, not only because I love different types of seafood butalso because I enjoy watching the beautiful sunset over the water.

1.special: meaningful, unique, indispensable (means a lot)
2.玩具词汇： stuffed dolls, models, building blocks, jigsaw puzzle
As a girl growing up in a working-class family, I did not have as many toys as other girls back to my childhood, but now I still maintain a set of building-block, for it is my favorite that is so special to me.
I think I got it in the year I went to primary school. At that time, all my families felt so happy for me, especially my grandpa who always regarded me as the apple in his eyes. To congratulate me, he bought me a set of building block which was made up of like 100 pieces which were in different colors, sizes and shapes. Can you picture how excited I was when I got it? I was so ecstatic about my new toy and treasured it as much as I could, played it almost every day, sometimes alone, sometimes with the company of my home girls. I could still remember how I used the blocks to construct houses, buildings, castles and stuff like that. With just a blink, I’ve already become an adult, a lady, and my favorite building block has already been put aside into the closet. How time flies!
But it is still very special and meaningful to me, for it’s given by my grandpa who passed away like 10 years ago. When I was young and grandpa was still alive, he always played it with me together and it was a lot of fun. Now when I see my favorite toy blocks, it could always remind me about my beloved grandpa and those beautiful memories we shared together.
Also, back to my childhood, both of my parents were fully occupied with work to fight for supporting our family, so most of time, I had to stayed home alone and wait for them to come back. To get rid of loneliness, I usually chose to play with my toy block. In other word, it’s like my best and most special companion in my childhood.
Last but not least, now when I look back, it was also very special, helpful & meaningful in the development of my intelligence. I once heard from the lecture that toy blocks were very beneficial in improving eye-hand coordination for kids. Meanwhile, by playing it, children could also take the best use of their creativity & imagination.
Reasons above all make building blocks my most special toy in life.
