Some people argue the scholarship is supposed to give students who have excellent academic performance, while some people think the scholarship should be given to students who lack money. Which opinion do you agree and why?
I think the scholarship should be given to students having excellent academic performance, because this way tends to be fair. No matter the poor students or those who are not poor, they both have the equal chance to study and improve themselves, so in order to get the scholarship, they will pursue the higher, the faster, the stronger on their studies or academic researches, which well embodies the spirit of schools. However, if only giving to those poor students, it is better for the scholarship to change its name into subsidy. The school should be full of careand love, yet the priority for the schools is to teach and cultivate students, instead of a shelter.
Your university requires all the freshmen and sophomores to live on campus, do you agree or disagree with such a requirement? Give specific explanation in your response.
I agree with it.
Firstly, this helps students know each other.
Secondly, students can be familiar with the school routines. Living on campus, each activity happens at the campus, they will know when the library is open andclosed, the time cafeterias serve meals and so on, which will facilitate their school lives in the following years.
Some students believe that students should choose what courses they learn by themselves, while some students believe that professors should make decisions for students. Which opinion do you support? Give specific explanation in your response.
Personally speaking, I prefer professors make decisions. The main reason is professors’choices tend to be mature and informed. They are clear about what students should learn and master for certain subjects. Taking the economics for example, professors have been investigating in this field for decades, they know students should learn courses like mathematics, econometrics, statistics, finance and so on, so as to master the skills needed in economics. However, if choosing by students, they are likely to be in a puzzle or at a loss about which courses to learn, consequently they may not learn necessary knowledge and achieve desired results.
When choosing universities, do you prefer to choose the universities that firstly require students to learn many comprehensive courses then study major course or the universities that directly teach students courses closely associated with their major. Give specific explanations in your response.
In my view, I prefer to choose the schools which allow me to directly study courses closely associated with my major. The main reason is that I have been very clear aboutmy future career choice that I want to be a boss in the tourism. Thus, if directly learning major courses, I may master important skills needed for my job in a short time, such as how to effectively design tour products, how to attract customers, how to be an excellent tour guide and so on. All these can help me grasp what I need. However, if choosing the other option, I may waste a lot of time learning something unrelated.
Your university is about to build a lounge in the campus so as to facilitate students’ studying and relaxation. Do you agree or disagree with such an idea? Give your explanations in your response.
Definitely I agree to build such a lounge.
Firstly, the lounge facilitates learning. It is very common to have the group discussion or group assignment for a college student. If having such a lounge, students can have the seats, a dequate light and a comfortable place to exchange ideas and discuss their tasks.
Secondly, the lounge is a good place for recreation. After a whole day’s study, in such a lounge, students can see a movie, listen to music, drink some coffee or chat with friends to kill their time. Students may well keep a balance between studying and relaxation, which is beneficial to everyone.
Some day in the future the library will be replaced by e-books and other electronic devices, then libraries will no longer exist in universities. Do you agree or disagree with the statement?
Personally speaking, this trend is beneficial.
The most remarkable reasonis saving money. For schools, using the e-books and electronic devices, the university doesn’t have to build a library or rehabilitate the old library, which is money-saving; also there is the wear and tear, the more students readand borrow paper books, the more money schools will have to spend on maintenance and repairs. A part from those, the price for an e-book is much cheaper than the price for one paper book, then the universities can save a bunch of money when buying materials for students or teachers for reference.
Nowadays some parents and students choose to have the home school, which means students listen to class and finish their assignments at home through the on-line educational system and they don’t have to go to the campus. Do you agree or disagree with this form of education and why?
I really think the home-school education is beneficial.
For>For another thing, this choice helps students save time. Studying at home, the moment students get up, the instant they can have classes. However, if going to schools, commuting from homes to schools, during the morning and evening rush hours, students may waste a lot of time, maybe two hours or more.
Some people prefer to praise the good things children have done; some people prefer to punish the bad things kids have done, which choice do you think is more appropriate and why? Give your explanations in your response.
In my view, I think compliment is the best choice.
Compliment will make children feel motivated and they might be more likely to repeat the good things they have done. After listening the praise from parents, seeing the smiles from teachers, getting the recognition from others, children will feel a sense of achievement and happiness, they will know their deeds are beneficial to others and next time they will also do good things to others, such as picking up the rubbish on the road or respecting the elderly and so on. However, if always getting punishment or criticism from others, children might become timid and diffident, which is harmful to their growth.
After quarreling with friends, which way do you prefer using to repair your relationship, humorous way or serious way? Give specific explanation in your response.
Personally speaking, I prefer to use humorous way.
The main reason is thisway is more spont aneous. For example, after the quarrel, dating my friend to drink beers or to eat some delicious foods or to have a trip in the suburb, while we are out, we explain to each other, apologize to each other, then the contradiction might be resolved; both my friend and me will feel relaxed. On the contrary, if having a serious meeting with my friend to settle the trouble or conflict, speaking very formal and serious words, I think it is kind of ridiculous. Being together with friends, I think being natural is better.
When you are talking something serious with your friends, will you choose to talk in a café, in a restaurant or prefer to choose in your home? Give specific explanation in your response.
I prefer my home.
One is that my home is quieter. Taking my city for example, usually there is the music in a café or in a restaurant, like jazz music, pop music or countryside music and so>The other is money-saving. Talking in a café or in a restaurant, inevitably we may have to order some drink or dessert, the cost will be at least 5 dollars in my city. However, talking at home, we may spend no money.
Some people have emotional attachments to old things, such as old clothes, old books and toys they played in their childhood, so they would prefer to keep them as long as possible; while some people don’t have such attachments and prefer to throw out old things, which one is your habit and why?
I prefer to throw out old things.
Firstly, this may give a more spacious room. Actually my bedroom is small,>Secondly, this may help me embrace something new. Just because I often throw out old items, then I have the chances to experience new things, such as more fashionable clothes and shoes, more elegant toys and decorations. If my room is filled with old things, hardly can I have the chance to embrace new items.
Your city isabout to build a new factory so as to provide more job opportunities forcitizens, however, the factory might lead to environmental pollution to some extent, do you agree or disagree to build such a new factory?
If this factory would be built in my city, I would definitely say NO! The most important factor is that the environmental pollution in my city has been very serious, such as the constant smog, the sand storm, many contaminated rivers, the vehicle exhaust and so on. If there is another factory producing pollution, such as releasing sulfur dioxide, the carbon dioxide, then breathing can be a nightmare and such an environment may lead to diseases to some extent. Our government should keep a balance between job opportunities and environment protection. If we don’t have the blue sky and clear air, we will not feel happy no matter how much money we earn.
