I disagree \:Vi:th.the statement that classmeteaare a more impm:tmt influenoe on a child'ssuccess in school" becaase.ofthe reasons as fritlows.. . Serondly, a historic building always represents history and ha. educational functions, Each one of !hero can telluaa story. For example, some buildings sreecideaces cf'foreign invasion, others are signs ofverioas religious ·."a,IM HI poSt decades. peOple nowadays 'con iilw"l" obtain historic or coIturnl inforrnatioo thJOugh viciting. these old 1milding3 and sites, Althongh we con Jearn tha past from books, pictures andby visiting rIIlISalIIIS, nothing can oompare with fhe actual historical buildings ttemselses, which can bring vivid edocatinnal material to us, Thirdly, historical buildings are a symbol of'a cily and. valuable tourist resource; therefore a-city cannot go without historical OOildings.

In IlI)' country, KOrea, I would say that the grass that produces rice has come. to be themost important plant, not just because rice is a staple food, but also for other cultural reasons. Virtually eve'}' Korean eat. rice at least twicea day. 1, for example; IwI rice at'breakfast, lunch, and dinner yesterday.
