The celebration of Youth Day
A: Hi, Cecelia, the Youth Day is coming. Do you know something about it?
B: Sure, Kathy. The Youth Day falls on the May 4th, and it is an important festival in China.
A: What about the origin of the festival?
B: Well, it comes from May 4th Movement launched by Beijing students in 1919, which *rks the beginning of the new democratic revolution, so this festival was established to memorize the movement. People, especially the young, often participate in all sorts of activities to celebrate it. How will you spend the day?
A: I am a member of youth volunteers in our school. As usual, we will organize some social practice activities, for example, in this year we will advocate students to do the rural practice, such as cleaning, experiencing farm work and doing housework, so that the youth can learn that today′s happy life is not easily won.
B: That is meaningful, today’s youth should really cherish their life. I will take part in a Poetry Reciting Competition and my topic is “The Youth”, praising the vigor and warm blood of the youth.
A: Good luck! By the way, an evening party in honor of the festival will be held on * this evening. Let us enjoy it.
B: Ok , I agree.
