在你的语法达到一定层次之后，你就可以追求更多的变化了，比如，用虚拟语气句型it is high time that we……代替常用的it is necessary that we should……，又如用倒装句代替常见的平铺直叙等，这样可以增加你的语法亮点，让已经有些麻木一直想睡觉的阅卷老师眼睛一亮，在你的试卷上多扫射一番!
在你的语法达到基本不会出错的程度上，作文便应该以词汇取胜，因为在这个层次上，大家的语法都差不多，没什么变化，唯一有变化的就是你的词汇!给你打个比方吧，很多想到“许多”就用many，但是你别忘了many a ;handsome;massive，innumerable，a multitude of ;很多人想到“专家”就写expert，但很少人会想到specialist，很多人在想到“擅长”这词，就写be good at ，却不知还有更高级的表达法：be expert at 或者excel in …高手和庸才，就体现在这些细微的差别上!
【范文一：The Popularity of Mandarin】
In China, there is no doubt that English is very important, because it has been the indispensable subject for students to learn since they go to school. As our economy develops so fast and our country plays the more and more important role in the world, a lot of foreigners have started to learn mandarin. There is even a big TV show for foreigners to compete to be the one who speaks mandarin best. I have watched the show, I am so impressed that the foreigners can speak mandarin so well, for mandarin is such difficult to learn. My foreign teachers told me that so many people in their countries wanted to know more about China and they were interested in our culture. The popularity of mandarin shows that our country has become stronger. We should be proud of that.
Recently, it has been reported that a college student went to Guangzhou for travel, but she missed, finally, the policeman found her body. It is so terrible, this incident warns people to protect themselves, especially for the girls. First, we'd better travel with friends. Traveling alone is very popular among the young people, because they are independent and chase for freedom, so they like to go without friends. Then they are easily becoming the gangster's targets. Therefore, having someone accompany not only can share the opinion, but also can be safe. Second, it is better not to go to the place which is dark and less people. The bad guys like to choose this place because they will not be noticed and are easy to do the criminal things. We need to learn to protect ourselves, life is precious.
