Describe a piece of important news you got through a text message
You should say:
What it was
When you got it
Who you got it from
And how you felt about it
Well, a piece of important news I got through a text message was knowing the result of my CET 4 exam, which was the college English test in China.
CET 4 has been considered one of the most fundamental and crucial English language proficiency test among Chinese universities. The majority of schools in China had a policy that students should pass this exam to meet the graduation requirement.
I got this piece of news on a Monday morning last August. Actually, the result can be checked online through a website. However, this article is from Laokaoya website, I was then in an area of my grandparents’ home where there’s a bad internet connection. So, my friend Wang helped me check it and sent a text message to me telling me that I passed the exam.
I was thrilled the moment I received his text message. I hadn’t got that excited since I checked my result of Gaokao, which was the college entrance exam, and it had been two years. I was definitely grateful for the good news from Wang.
The reason why this piece of news was important was that the result meant a lot to me. First, I didn’t have to take extra time and effort to cram for it again. Second, passing this exam really gave me a sense of accomplishment, which made me feel a bit more confident in learning English.
