1.Describe a person in your family whose personality and behavior are quite different from others, using the specific examples to explain why.
Talking about a person who behaves very differently from others in my family, I would like to say my cousin, Jack, who is an only 13-year-old boy in the school.
Young as he is, he is really not like in his age, I mean, he is very brave and adventurous, and he likes attending some exciting outdoor activities like climbing the mountain and surfing in the ocean, etc. Even his parents told him to be more careful with all that kind of risky events, he seems like not taking it seriously but does it very well.
Besides, he is the only one probably in my family who dares to save drowning people in the water without thinking too much, still remember last summer he saved a young girl’s life in the bathing beach No.3.
Such a brave and good boy! Though he is too adventurous, we all love him.
2.What is the most effective way to resolve disagreements between friends? Explain why.
Personally, I think asking the third party to mediate between friends is the best way to resolve the disagreements. There are two reasons as follows.
In the first place, the third party is very objective to tell which side is right or wrong, which can help both parties realize the problem and make an agreement quickly. Because when people are in dispute, they will be too judgmental with their only opinions, and probably not think about the problem completely, with the help of the mediator, things would be easier and quicker to be solved.
Besides, when people have disagreement, it might lead to lots of consequences, like some unnecessary misunderstanding, even hatred. Even one side wants to alleviate the problem, afraid of losing face might prevent the apology, so the mediator plays a very important role in the disagreement.
In a word, finding a person to help is a good way of easing the disagreement.
3.Describe a serious problem that is facing your country. Explain why it is so serious.
I believe that unemployment rate among college graduates has become a serious problem in China. To begin with, while economics situation has not improved, many college graduates are unable to find suitable jobs. It challenges the education system and people ‘s value seriously. Secondly, the social status of university students is declining. People even begin to doubt the value of entering universities, which will affect the long term quality of our country. Finally, too many jobless young people pose serious risks to social stability. Recent years, there are more and more extreme cases committed by graduates, because they feel hopeless about the future after making more than 15years efforts.
4.In your opinion, why is it hard for university students to manage their time effectively?
Personally, I think there are 3 primary reasons. Firstly, university studies are quite intense, and there is not much free time left for students are quit intense, and there is not much free time left for students to manage. Apart from their coursework, students are often required to take part in a variety of sports and social activities. For instance, every senior student in my university is requir3d to work as volunteer for the elementary school nearby. More importantly, they generally lack organizational skills or are unware of the consequence of wasting time on activities such as playing computer games. Young people tend to be indulged in the games and spend less time and efforts on study, which directly lead them to have worse school performance.
5.If you could have a part –time job at the university what position would you choose? A lab assistant, a campus guide or a library assistant?
Personally, I would choose to be a library assistant for two reasons.
The first reason is that I can be positive in learning by maintaining contact with a number of excellent students. To my mind, I think most students who go to the libraries love learning. So making friends with them can help me a lot. Second of all, working as a library assistant might help me learn how to sort out the books ranging from history to the geography, or from science to arts, which is a good preparation for me to search references for my future paper work as well as a good method to work more efficiently in a logical way.
In brief, working in the library is the best option to do the part-time job in the uni.
6.If you are recruited as a volunteer to help the community protect the environment, which tasks you will choose to do? a. Clear up trash and litter on the street; b. Plant trees and flowers to green the town; c. Teach children to protect and be friend with the environment.
Well, if I were the volunteer to help to protect the environment, I would prefer to teach the children to protect and be friend with the environment for two reasons.
Firstly, I think environmental protection should start from the young generation, so teaching children to cultivate a good awareness of environment conservation would be the best way to make sense. Furthermore, clearing up the trash and litter or plant trees and flowers individually would be less working than influencing more people, like teaching kids can also lead them to join us to do all the things above to make a better world.
All in all, it would be the best to let kids have the awareness of environment conservation than to protect the environment alone.
7.Which do you think is the biggest challenge that new university students face: being away from university students face: being away from family, having no time to relax or making new friends?(12/06/17 CN)
In comparison to the other two difficulties which freshmen may come across after entering university, I think a lack of time to relax should be considered a serious one. There are some reasons. First of all, homework in university doubles in comparison to that in high school. If a university student cannot property arrange the spare time, one may have to stay up with the whole night, catching up with piles of homework, let alone relax. Moreover, there are daily chores to take care of which were probably finished by mother when at home. Most children, when at home are told the priority in their life should study hard and all the family chores therefore have been shouldered by parents. But when in university without the care of parents, students have to look after themselves, including room cleaning and laundry, which they are unfamiliar with.
8.Some people like to work or study in new places, what are the advantages of working or studying in new places? Give examples and explain your reasons./ Nowadays many people move to cities for work and study, What advantages does moving to cities bring to people?(13/9/28 NA)
As far as I am concerned, there are many advantages of studying in new places.
First of all, new environment provides me a chance to meet with new people and enlarge social network, I finished my middle school in my hometown, and all my friends I’ve got there are those from the same place. Now, I am studying in an international school, the students of which are from all over the world. And it is these people who have broaden my horizon and helped me make up my mind to study overseas in the near future. Moreover, studying alone in the new city helps cultivate special qualities, such as independence. When living at home, my mother helped me with all the house chores, such as laundry and house cleaning. But now, I have to rely on myself for all the daily housework and I think that is a good preparation for my future study overseas.
9.Your friend plans to go to your country to study, but has concerned about expenditure. What is your advice for your friend? (14/10/04 NA)
For a foreign student who is going to conduct study in my country, there are several ways to meet the expenditure.
First of all, the student can take a part-time job. If working license is what to concern about, then he can work on campus either in the school cafeteria or library. I am sure there must be some programs available for him. Just go and consult the school career office. Moreover, he can also apply for scholarship. Some students may concern that only students with terrific performance in study can get the chance. However, whoever is superior in respective course may have a chance for scholarship, as almost all the majors have their own scholarship program.
So these are the options listed above that foreign student could have if they want to manage their expenditure.
10.What time of a year do you like the most? Please give specific reasons and details in your response.
Compared with other seasons, I like summer and the early autumn the most in a year for several reasons. First of all, in summer and autumn, there is plenty of sunshine, which can bring the good mood. I am a person who dislikes rainy and cloudy days, in those days, I often feel depressed. Secondly, I can put you on skirt and T-shirt, which are light and beautiful, while in spring and winter, it is always cold that I have to put on heavy clothes. Finally, if I want to travel, I normally choose summer and autumn, because it’s warm and I only need a little luggage.
