In the past, traveling by plane was unimaginable for most Chinese people. Today, with the development of China’s economy and the improvement of people’s living standards, more and more Chinese people, including many farmers and migrant workers, can travel by air. They can fly to all major cities, and many cities are also planning to build airports. Air services continue to improve, and there are often cheap flights. In recent years, the number of people choosing to travel by air during holidays has been increasing.

The Importance of Reading Ability and How to Develop It
It's well known that books are the quintessence of human wisdom. Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. There are many famous sayings about reading throughout the history such as “Reading makes a full man.” Indeed, the importance of reading can never be too much stressed. Thus, here comes to how to develop such ability.
To begin with, as an old proverb says, “Practice makes perfect.”, what we need to do is to read as more books as we can, no matter whether it is a digital version or hardcover. Secondly, since there are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people's eyes, we need to deliver our opinions to others and share with others. This could not only help understand the materials from different views but also improve our reading ability. Thirdly, making reading a habit could also improve it. The more fun we find in reading, the more we are willing to explore the books and thus help us strengthen that ability.
In a word, no matter at what time we realize the importance of reading, we can enjoy it during the rest of our life and finally we'll see that it is rewarding.

The Importance of Writing Ability and How to Develop It
As is widely known, writing is an essentially important and necessary skill for all of us. However, many people don't really understand the true importance of writing. In my opinion, writing has deeper importance and we can do a lot to develop this skill.
In the first place, writing is a good way to express ourselves. Nowadays, there are so many situations, such as website forums and WeChat’s friends-cycle, where a thought-provoking writing leaves viewers a deep impression. Moreover, writing is an effective way to enlarge our vocabulary. The more compositions we write, the more vocabularies we get. At the same time, writing makes great contributions toward our critical thinking as the writing process is also the time of thought.
To develop our skill of writing, we should firstly improve our ability of using words because it’s the foundation of a solid writing. Besides, we must collect and learn writing materials comprehensively so that we can actually make some unique points of view when we are writing. At last, practice makes perfect, which needs us to write considerably all the time.

The Importance of Speaking Ability and How to Develop It
Nowadays,human-to-human communication problems and social chaos are all related to speech. Sometimes, speaking is like sharp swords that can hurt people, while sometimes, it can help comfort people. As an old saying goes, “One word can cause the nation to prosper; one word can cause it to perish.” Speaking affects everything from individuals to nations even to the world. Speaking is like breathing that affects our lives. Then how can we make speaking improve our lives rather than drive our lives?
First of all, we should learn. Most of us are willing to seek various ways to improve our speaking skills, such as reading books or participating in training courses. What’s more, we should practice speaking in all situations. Only in this way, can we improve our speaking skills. Apart from learning, practicing, it is more important to speak from the bottom of the heart. After all, speaking is closely related to our knowledge and mind.
All in one word, only by improving our speaking ability, can we benefit from it during the rest of our life and finally we'll see that it is rewarding.
