Dear editor,

We are writing to complain about ads on TV. There are so many ads, especially during our favorite programs. We think they should be stopped for a number of reason.

First, ads are nuisance. They go on for along time and there are so many. Sometimes there seems to be too many ads in one program.

Second, ads are a bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy food like beer, soft drink, candy and chips. And they make people want things they do not really need and cannot afford. It can lead to consumerism.

Finally, the people who make ads have to much say in what programs people watch. That is because they want to pull all their ads on popular programs that a lot of people watch. Some programs that are not so popular get stopped because they do not attract enough ads, even though those programs may be someone’s favorite.

For those reasons, we think your TV station should be stop showing ads. They interrupt programs. They are a bad influence on people, and they are sometimes put a stop to people’s favorite shows. We are sick of ads, and now we mostly watch other channels.

Fish are animal that live in water

Fish have fins that help them to swim. Most fish have slimy skins covered with scales which are very small and can hardly be seen.

Fish breath through gills. These look like a comb and lie on each side of the head. Fish take in water all the time. The water flows in through the mouth, over the gills, and out the sides of the head. When a fish takes in the water, it is not drinking but breathing, and the gills absorb oxygen from water.

The body of a fish is made up of the head, the trunk, and the tail fins.

There are many different kinds of fish which have many different shapes and colors. Some fish are long and thin, while others are flat and rounded. Most fish have bodies which are broad at the trunk region and narrow toward the head and tail.

In some countries, school uniform is normal and most schools make their students wear one. Most students in Britain, for example, use uniform to school. It is also required at almost all school in Japan. However, the question of whether children should wear a uniform to school always makes for a lively debate.
