Describe something special you brought home from a holiday.
You should say:
What it was;
When and where you went on this holiday;
What you did with it after you brought it home;
And explain why you think it was something special.
18.景点纪念品（曾经去湖南的岳麓书院玩，在那里的纪念品店买到一个铜制书签，上面雕刻着景点的大 门，看上去制作很考究。直到现在依然在用着这个书签，是买过很实用的纪念品。本题素材与Part2“历史 建筑”等题有串联。）
I5m going to talk about a souvenir I bought at a famous attraction in Hunan104 Province. It5s a beautiful bookmark made of copper105 that looks like a small hook106. There’s also a delicate plate on the hook that is carved with a diagram of 107 the attraction’s entrance. I’ve never seen such a sophisticated108 bookmark before, which is why I bought it without hesitation.
Anyway, I bought the bookmark at one of the four most famous academies in Chinese ancient history, the Yuelu Academy. My father took me for a tour around the academy before I was about to start college.
It’s a massive place, almost 20 thousand square meters in area. Most of the architectural structures in the academy are built in Chinese classical styles, and almost all of the buildings are built in only three colors: black, white, and grey, which gives the place a solemn atmosphere. I really enjoyed being there, so I bought the bookmark I mentioned just now. I love it because it perfectly fits the academic environment109 that Yuelu Academy fostered and promoted110.
To this very day111, I still use this bookmark. It looks very fancy and elegant112, and it reminds me of the solemn environment of the Yuelu Academy. Most importantly, it comes in handy113 when reading a book. If I go there again, I will definitely buy more to give my friends as gifts.
