Animals and Pets
1. Whatkind of wild animals do you like most? / What’s your favorite animal? Why?
Well, I’m so into tigers. Actually, I was born in theyear of the tiger, so I suppose I have special feelings for them. For me,they have wild spirits and cannot easily be tamed. In fact, someof them may be ferocious, but watching their behavior can be somethingreally relaxing to do.
the year of thetiger 虎年 (注意生肖前加the)
wild spirits 有野性
be tamed 被驯服 (这一点可以作为所有wildlife的共同特点)
ferocious 很凶猛的 (也可用aggressive作替代)

3. Doyou love to see the animals in the zoo?
To be honest, I have to say no because I always feel sorryfor animals that are kept in the cages. Although they are welllooked after and are provided with food, they don’t have the sense of freedomlike living in their natural habitat.
feel sorry for 为…感到遗憾
be kept in thecages 被关在笼子里

the sense of freedom自由的感觉

在表达不喜欢的观点时，可以使用I have to say no后加原因。

Definitely yes,and I suppose schools can play a big part in educating children about this issue. Children should learn howto look after the natural environment. I think schools already teachchildren about endangered species and the destructionof tropical rain forests, so hopefully future generations will do abetter job of protecting wildlife.
