Workload Too Demanding
We are at senior high school. Every day, we have many exercises that we can＇t complete and many books that we can＇t finish reading. The teachers continually repeat the words that we are already able to recite.
Teachers and students all work hard in order to improve the percentages① of those entering college. But the burden of work in class is so heavy that we have little time to do sports, which has left many of us in poor health. What＇s worse, many students have lost interest in their studies altogether.
It is known to all that good health is as important as knowledge. Virtues② such as bravery, discipline and love of our motherland can＇t be learned only in classes, but should also be learned through social practice. We should be given the time and opportunity to be exposed to society so we can learn what can＇t be taught from books.
We are young and we have young hearts. We love study as well as amusements. We hope that the number of exercises class will be reduced so we can take part in more after-class activities. In this way we will be able to learn much more and be more effective in our studies.
本文第一段和第二段前半部分是擺學校課業負擔重的事實，談的是原因。從第二段后半部分開始分析負擔過重帶來的結果。作者分析了四種結果，即負擔過重會影響身體健康（poor health），會使學生失去學習興趣（lost interest），會使學生學不到社會公德（social virtues），還會使學生失去娛樂活動（amusements）的機會。所以，本文是一因多果說明文。
