  【标准样文】

  Is Thrift Still a Good Virtue?
  With the improvement of the living standards, many people are [1]no longer interested in the simple life style [2]and some of them even feel ashamed to be thrifty. What they pursue is the latest fashion. In their eyes, thrift is already out of style.
  [3]However, still other people insist that thrift is a good virtue. They say that the unprecedented power of production doesn’t mean that we are entitled to a life of extravagance, because our natural resources are limited [2]and some of them even are [4]on the decline. [5]Moreover, they hold that waste may lead to degradation of social atmosphere and environmental pollution as well.
  [6]As to me, I prefer the latter opinion. I believe [7] “Waste not, want not.” The truth of this saying is [8]not to give up comfort but to enhance efficiency. [5]In fact, economic growth depends enormously on saving. [5]Besides, there are still millions of Chinese [9]living under poverty line. We can never afford reckless waste. [5]Therefore, [10]it is no doubt that thrift is still a good virtue that we should not give up.

  【亮点点评】

  [1]“不再”。
  [2]表示递进。
  [3]引出另外一种观点。
  [4]“在下降”。
  [5]过渡衔接词语,使文章条理清晰、衔接紧密。
  [6]用于引出自己的观点或选择。
  [7]引用谚语“俭以防匮”。
  [8]not... but连接并列结构,意为“不是…而是”。
  [9]现在分词短语作后置定语。
  [10]“毫无疑问”。
