Big data(数据) is。lot of sets of information that are put together so they can be used by a computer program. The computer program looks for different kinds of answers or patterns in the data.

One set of data can have people's names and addresses. Another set can have what they like, where they go to school, and how much time they spend on the computer

Possible version 1:
Looking back on the past three years, I'd like to say thanks to you for helping me with my English.
When I was in Grade 7, I was not good at English. I just hid behind my text book and never said anything in class. Once I did very badly in an English test, and I lost heart. However, you had a patient talk with me and encouraged me to be more active in class.
Since then, I have worked harder and made great progress. I feel lucky to be your student.
Thank you again. Wish you goal luck.
Possible version 2:
Looking back on the past three years, I'd like to say sorry to you for arguing with you.
When we were in Grade 8, we lost the chance to get the first prize in the football match. I never stopped complaining to you that it was you who missed the goal. But you shouted back that you were not the only reason. You walked off angrily. From then on, we didn't talk to each other.
I have been regretting doing so. Soon we will graduate from our school. Let's forget about the past and become good friends again.
