Good morning, everyone. It is a great honor of me to have you here. My assignment is unit11, personal relationship, and I choose to focus on group task on page 108 and 109. The topic of my speech is love. There are three sections of my speech, first, I will introduce the definition of love to you, then I will share one of my favorite song about love, and at end of my speech, I would like to tell you how to express love to the people we loved. Let’s get to the point. In the Longman dictionary, “love” is defined as “a strong feeling of fondness for another person, especially between members of a family or between people of the opposite sex”. The word love comes from Latin, its original meaning is continuous concern for others. (
文压缩而来， 这句拉丁文是“爱是对他人生命持久的关注” )
As we can see,
love has four letters, L O V E.
L stands for listen,
it requires us listen to the needs of others. O stands for only, we are all longing for the purest love. V stands for valued, valued opinions of others. E stands for excuse, be tolerant about the mistakes of others.
L’代表 Listen（倾听），爱就是要无条件无偏见地倾听对方的需求，并给 予自己最大的协助。
O’代表 only(唯一）爱就是百分百的纯正，对唯一的你所作出唯一的 承诺。 V’代表 Valued（尊重），爱就是展现你的尊重，表达体贴，真诚的鼓 励，悦耳的赞美，尊重他或她的选择。 E' 代表 Excuse(宽恕) ，爱就是仁慈的对待，宽恕对方的缺点与错误， 维持优点与长处， 并帮助他改正错误。 This
is the literal meaning
of love. To acquire love you are longing for, do remember to listen, only, valued and excuse. Then let me share my favorite song named love story, it was sang by Taylor swift.
We were both young when I first saw you I close my eyes and the flashback starts I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air See the lights see the party the ball gowns See you make your way through the crowd And say hello little did I know That you were Romeo
It is a sweet song, telling us a moving love story. I hope you will all meet your Mr Right. A poems says, I love you not because who you are, but because who I am when I am with you. Love is priceless, if you meet the one you loved, just won’t let it go. Then how to express love to our loved one? Sing a song like love story maybe a good choice, but I guess if I
sing it to my mother, my mother would just shake her head, for she couldn’t understand what I am singing. In my opinion, call your parents for one or two times a week maybe a good choice. You can share your happiness and sorrows with your parents, or just say “I am fine, mom” is also ok. I am from Shandong province, a long distance away from Beijing. Sometimes I found myself thinking of my family very much. At that time, I would call my mother, and I will be comforted.No matter how the world changed, our parents will always be there for us. Love you, mother and father. As for friends, we may have more access to contact with each other. Sending mails, text message, chatting on msn, QQ, both will do us a favor. A friend in need is a friend indeed. A True friend is someone who walks with you when the rest of the world walks out, someone who makes you laugh. When you are down, and the world seems dark and empty, your true friend lift you up in spirits and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. If you have such friends, remember to tell them that
you are grateful for their company. love you, my dear friends. The quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings. Life is not a race, but a journey to be tasted each step of the way. Remember take love with you.
