<p>如何看待在校大学生打工(1)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">【题目】 <br/></font>In some countries, teenagers have jobs while they are still students. Do you think this is a good idea? Support your opinion by using specific reasons and details. <br/><br/><font color="#ff0000">【范文】 <br/></font>In many countries it is common for teenagers to take part-time jobs while they are still in high school, while in other societies this is virtually unheard of. In the latter situation, students are expected to spend all of their time on their studies and consider schoolwork their "job". In my opinion, students benefit more from a more balanced lifestyle, which may include working at a part-time job. Therefore, I believe that it is a good idea for students to work while studying. <br/><br/>While it is true that a student's most important goal must be to learn and to do well at his studies, it does not need to be the only goal. In fact, a life which consists of only study is not balanced and may cause the student to miss out on other valuable learning experiences. In addition to bringing more balance to a student's life, part-time work can broaden his range of experience. He will have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and will be faced with a wider variety of problems to solve. Furthermore, work helps a student to develop greater independence, and earning his own pocket money can teach him how to handle his finances. Finally, a part-time job can help a student to develop a greater sense of responsibility, both for his own work and for that of the team he works with.&nbsp;<br/><br/>For all of these reasons, I firmly believe that most students would benefit from taking a part-time job while they are in high school. Of course, they must be careful not to let it take up too much of their time because study is still their primary responsibility. In sum, living a balanced life is the best way to be successful. <br/><br/><font color="#ff0000">[参考译文]青少年与打工 <br/></font>  在许多国家,青少年普遍会在高中时期打工。然而在有些国家,这几乎是前所未闻的。如果是后者的情况,那是因为一般认为学生应把所有的时间花在学业上,把学业当作是自己的"工作"。我认为,生活方式越均衡,对学生就越好,而均衡的生活则须包含打工。所以我认为,在就学期间打工是个不错的想法。<br/>&nbsp;<br/>  虽然学生最重要的目标的确必须是学习,而且功课要好,但这不必是学生惟一的目标。事实上,只重视学业的生活并不均衡,这可能会使学生错过其他珍贵的学习经验。打工除了使生活更均衡外,还可拓展学生的经验。学生可以有机会见识各行各业的人,而且会面临更多各种不同的问题需要解决。此外,工作帮助学生更加独立,而且自己赚零用钱还可以教导他如何处理自己的财务。最后,打工可以帮助学生培养对自己的工作和团队工作更大的责任感。<br/>&nbsp;<br/>  基于这些理由,我坚决相信,大多数学生在高中时期打工都能获益。当然,他们也必须小心,不要让打工占据太多时间,因为学业仍然是青少年首要的责任。总之,过均衡的生活才是最佳的成功之道。 </p>

<p>讨论汽车快速发展利与弊(2)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">以下文章主要讨论小汽车的利与弊(Advantages and disadvantages of private cars)。<br/><br/></font>With the fantastic spur both in industry and in economy in China, the number of people who own private cars is on the rise. Some people have bought cars of their own, and others are planning to buy cars. But there have been two quite different views on this phenomenon. <br/><br/>Some claim that there are many advantages brought about by cars. First, the automobile industry provides jobs for countless workers and strong support for other industries. Second, if conditions permit, owning a car can make us work more efficiently. Finally, life will become more convenient. A car allows one to move freely and with a car there is no need to wait for the bus in the cold or under the burning sun. <br/><br/>However, others strongly object to the increase in developing private cars. They hold that automobiles will give rise to a series of problems. In the first place, as more and more cars are produced and run in the street, a large volume of poisonous gas will be given off, polluting the atmosphere and causing actual harm to the health of people. Next, private cars contr123te to traffic congestion so greatly that the advantages gained in comfort and freedom are often cancelled out by the frustration caused by traffic jams. The last problem is the increasing number of car accidents that have killed and will kill a lot of people in a friction of a second. <br/><br/>In my opinion, although automobiles have been playing a vital part in the daily activities of our society, they also bring us numerous troubles such as more serious environmental pollution, more traffic accidents and more 123rgy consumption. They drink up huge amounts of fuel and throw out huge amounts of pollutants. Traffic accidents kill thousands and thousands of people each year and cripple more. Jams waste our precious time. Therefore I am against developing private cars. </p>

<p>每天养成存钱习惯的好处(3)</p><p><strong><font color="#ff0000">【题目】</font></strong> <br/>  Is it better to enjoy your money when you earn it or is it better to save your money for some time in the future? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion. <br/><br/>  <font color="#3300ff"><strong>【范</strong>文】</font><font color="#3300ff">The Advantages of Saving Money</font><br/>  Everyone must work to live, but many people are fortunate enough to make more money than they immediately need. What should they do with this extra income? While it is tempting for people to spend it all on things they desire, I believe it is better to save at least a portion of the extra income for the future. <br/><br/>  By saving money, people give themselves more security. They cannot predict the future; perhaps one day they will be jobless. At a time like this their savings can spare them a great deal of suffering and help to see them through the hard time. In addition, saving money allows people to build up a larger sum. They can then buy something more worthwhile than the small things they can but if they spend the money right away. For example, they may be able to buy a house with their savings. Finally, the practice of saving helps people develop the habit of setting goals and planning for their future. In this way they are bound to lead more meaningful and successful lives. <br/><br/>  Most people would like to enjoy their money immediately. Nobody likes to wait for the things that he wants. However, if we learn to save our money, we can gain more advantages in the future. We will lead more secure and, thus, happier lives. We will also be able to buy the things we truly want but cannot afford right now. <br/><font color="#3366ff"><font color="#000000">  </font><strong>【参考译文】:存钱的好处</strong></font><br/>  每个人都必须工作以求生存,但是有许多人很幸运,能够赚得比他们立即需要的还要多的钱。他们应该如何处理这些额外的收入呢?尽管把钱全花在自己想买的东西上是很诱人的,但我认为最好至少把一部分的额外收入存起来,以备将来之需。 <br/>  通过存钱,人们能获得更多的安全感。未来是无法预测的,或许有一天我们会失业。碰到像这样的情况,存款可以让我们免去许多痛苦,帮助我们渡过难关。此外,存钱可以使人积累较多的钱,可以用于买更有价值的东西,比马上把钱花掉所能买到的东西更有用。例如,我们可以用存款买房子。最后,存钱能帮助我们培养设定目标及为未来作计划的习惯。如此一来,我们一定会过着更有意义并且更成功的生活。 <br/>  大部分的人会想要马上享用手边的钱。没有人想等到以后再买想要的东西。然而,如果我们学会存钱,未来可以获得更多的好处。我们将过着更有安全感而且更快乐的生活。我们也能购买我们真正想要但现在无法负担的东西。 </p>

<p>书本知识与实践经验哪个重要(4)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">【题目】 <br/></font>  <font color="#000000">It has been said, "Not everything that is learned is contained in books." Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why? <br/></font><br/>  <font color="#3300ff">【范文】 Book Knowledge vs Experience</font> <br/>  Knowledge can be acquired from many sources. These include books, teachers and practical experience, and each has its own advantages. The knowledge we gain from books and formal education enables us to learn about things that we have no opportunity to experience in daily life. We can study all the places in the world and learn from people we will never meet in our lifetime, just by reading about them in books. We can also develop our analytical skills and learn how to view and interpret the world around us in different ways. Furthermore, we can learn from the past by reading books. In this way, we won’t repeat the mistakes of others and can build on their achievements. <br/><br/>  Practical experience, on the other hand, can give us more useful knowledge. It is said that one learns best by doing, and I believe that this is true, whether one is successful or not. In fact, I think making mistakes is the best way to learn. Moreover, if one wants to make new advances, it is necessary to act. Innovations do not come about through reading but through experimentation. Finally, one can apply the skills and insights gained through the study of books to practical experience, making an already meaningful experience more meaningful. However, unless it is applied to real experiences, book knowledge remains theoretical and, in the end, is useless. That is why I believe that knowledge gained from practical experience is more important than that acquired from books. <br/><br/>  <font color="#ff0000">【参考译文】 书本知识与实际经验&nbsp;<br/></font>  获得知识的来源有很多,其中包括书本、老师,以及实际经验,而每一种都有其优点。从书本上及正规教育中所获得的知识使我们知道在日常生活中没有机会亲身去体验的事。通过读书,我们可以研究世界各地的资料,还可以向不曾谋面的人学习。我们也可以培养分析的技巧,并学习如何以不同的方式去观察并理解周围的世界。此外,我们可以通过读书,从历史中获取教训。如此一来,就不会再重复别人的错误,并且能够以他人的成就作为我们行动的基础。 <br/><br/>  另一方面,实际经验能够给我们更多有用的知识。大家都说从做中学的效果最好,我也认为的确如此,无论一个人成功与否。事实上,我认为犯错是最好的学习方式。此外,如果想要有新的进展,就必须要付诸行动。想要创新,只靠阅读是不够的,必须要去实践。最后,我们可以将通过读书所获得的技巧和见解应用于实际经验中,使得原本有意义的经验变得更有意义。不过,除非我们能将书本知识运用于实际经验中,否则书本知识终究仍只是理论,毫无用处。那就是为什么我会认为从实际经验中获得的知识比从书本中所得到的知识更为重要。 </p>

<p>居民住房附近有工厂的利弊(5)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">【题目】</font> <br/>  A company has announced that it wishes to build a large factory near your community. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this new influence on your community. Do you support or oppose the factory? Explain your position. <br/><br/>  <font color="#3366ff">【范文】 A Factory near the Neighborhood <br/></font>  Having a factory nearswheresone lives brings with it both advantages and disadvantages. An obvious advantage is an increase in the number of available jobs, and many people in the community might find employment in the new factory. The factory would bring money into the community in other ways as well. It would have to pay some taxes to the local government, and workers might go shopping or eat at a restaurant in the area before or after their shifts. <br/><br/>  However, the factory would bring some disadvantages, too. Depending on what kind of factory it is, it might pollute the environment and bring down property values. It would be sure to increase traffic in the area, causing congestion and making it unsafe for children to play outside. Finally, the neighborhood would become a noisy, busy place. For all of these reasons, I would be opposed to the construction of a new factory near my community. While the employment opportunities would help the community, I believe it would be better for residents to commute to work and preserve the peace of our neighborhood. <br/><br/>  <font color="#3366ff">【译文】 住家附近的工厂 <br/></font>  住家附近有工厂既有优势也有弊端。一项明显的优势是工作机会会增加。社区内的许多居民可能会在新工厂找到工作。工厂也会以其他方式为社区带来收入。它必须上缴给当地政府部分税金,工人也可能会在轮班工作的前后在当地购买东西或在餐厅用餐。 <br/>  然而,工厂也会带来某些弊端,这取决于工厂的性质。它可能会污染环境,造成房地产价格下跌。工厂一定会使当地的交通流量增加,导致交通阻塞,使得小孩在外面玩耍变得不安全。最后,社区附近地区会变得既热闹又嘈杂。基于这些理由,我反对在社区附近兴建新的工厂。虽然就业机会能造福社区,但我认为还是居民乘车上下班,保持社区附近环境的安宁比较好。 </p>

<p>运气在事业成功中的作用(6)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">【题目】</font> <br/>"When people succeed, it is because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with success." Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position. <br/><br/><font color="#3366ff">【范文】 The Role of Luck in Success</font> <br/>It has been said that when people succeed, it is because of hard work and that luck has nothing to do with success. Although I believe that hard work is very important and is the surest way to success for most people, I must disagree with this statement. It cannot be denied that luck often plays an important role in success. For example, many important discoveries have been made by accident. There have been many cases of researchers and inventors making major breakthroughs while they were actually trying to solve another problem or create a different device. Furthermore, there is something to be said for simply being in the right place at the right time-perhaps meeting someone by chance who can offer a good job or rare opportunity. And of course, there are the rare examples of gamblers and lottery winners who beat the odds and achieve sudden and unexpected success. <br/><br/>While the influence of luck cannot be ignored, this is not to say that one should depend on it and ignore the value of hard work. If one is willing to work hard, I believe that success will eventually be achieved, with or without the added benefit of luck. Moreover, hard work is often an essential ingredient of luck because it enables one to take advantage of a lucky encounter. If the scientist has not worked hard to develop his knowledge and skills, he may not recognize that lucky breakthrough when it comes along. Therefore, my suggestion is not to count on luck to bring you success. Instead, work hard and keep your eyes open for that lucky opportunity.&nbsp;<br/><br/><font color="#ff0000">参考译文:运气在成功里所扮演的角色<br/></font>  有人说一个人会成功是因为努力,而运气和成功则是一点关系也没有。虽然我相信努力很重要,而且对大部分的人来说,努力是成功最可靠的方法,可是我不得不反对这种说法。能否成功,运气扮演着一个很重要的角色,这是不可否认的事实。例如,很多重要的发现都是在偶然情况下发生的。有很多实例表明,有重大突破的研究人员和发明家,原本是要试图解决其他问题或是发明别的仪器。而且,仅仅是天时地利这方面也有一些关系--也许是偶然碰到能提供好的工作和珍贵机会的人。当然也有极少数赌徒和彩票得主得到突如其来、意想不到的成功。 <br/>  尽管运气的影响力不容忽视,但也不表示人就应该完全靠运气,而忽视努力的价值。如果一个人愿意努力,不论有没有运气额外的帮助,我相信终究还是会成功。此外,因为努力能让人充分利用幸运的机会,所以努力通常也是运气的必要因素。如果科学家没有努力培养自己的知识和技巧,那么当某个幸运的突破出现时,他可能也看不出来。因此,我建议大家不要指望运气能带来成功。相反地,应该努力,并随时注意不要错过任何好机会。 </p>

<p>人们为什么要参观博物馆(7)</p><p><font color="#ff0000">【题目】</font> <br/>Many people visit museums when they travel to new places. Why do you think people visit museums? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer. <br/><br/><font color="#3366ff">【范文】 Why People Visit Museums?</font> <br/>Museums are great repositories of mankind’s historical artifacts and achievements in art. From them we can learn a great deal about the people of the past and their link to the people of the present. We can also learn about cultures other than our own. I believe this last advantage is the main reason many people visit museums when they travel. <br/><br/>When someone chooses to visit a new place, he often does so because he is interested in seeing a different environment and a different way of life. To gain a better understanding of this new culture, many travelers will go to a history or cultural museum. Even those who never visit museums at home may be inspired by the new sights around them and want to find out more. Other people choose to visit museums abroad insgroupsto see things that they cannot see at home. They may have read of famous works of art and look forward to the chance to see them with their own eyes. Still others may have a specific interest, such as butterflies or eighteenth century furniture. It is not possible for every community to support a museum devoted to every field of study, but travelers can take advantage of the opportunity to pursue their interests. <br/><br/>No matter why one travels, the journey often offers the opportunity to visit a new museum. It is an activity that will provide the traveler with a better understanding of the world, no matter what his specific interest is. That is why I think most people choose to visit museums when they travel to a new place. <br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <br/><font color="#3366ff">参考译文:人们为什么要参观博物馆? <br/></font>博物馆是人类历史文物及艺术成就的伟大宝库。我们可以从中了解到很多与过去的人们有关的事以及他们与现代人之间的关联。我们也可以从中了解其他不同的文化。我认为最后这项优点是许多人旅行时会去参观博物馆的主要原因。 <br/>人们选择游览一个新的地方是因为他们对不同的环境以及不同的生活方式感兴趣。为了更加了解这个新的文化,许多游客会去参观历史或文化博物馆。即使是在国内从不去参观博物馆的人,也可能会受到周围景物的启发而想要发掘更多东西。有些人在国外选择参观博物馆是为了要看国内所看不到的东西。他们可能已经阅读过一些著名艺术作品的资料而期待这个可以亲眼目睹的机会。还有些人可能对某些事物有特定的兴趣,如蝴蝶或18世纪的家具。可是并非每个地区都能资助与每一种学术领域有关的博物馆,所以游客就可以利用这个机会去追求自己的兴趣。 <br/>无论一个人为了什么而去旅行,旅行常能提供参观新博物馆的机会。这项活动能让旅行者更加了解世界,不管他的特殊兴趣是什么。这就是我认为为什么大部分人到新的地方旅行都会选择参观博物馆的原因。</p>

<p>电影电视给观众带来的影响(8)</p><p>【题目】 <br/>  How do movies or television influence people’s behavior? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer. <br/><br/>  【范文】 The Influence of Television and Movies <br/>  There is no doubt that watching television and movies can influence the way that people behave. Moreover, it seems that people are spending more and more time watching some sort of visual entertainment, whether it is television, a video tape or a DVD. Therefore, the effects of visual media cannot be ignored. <br/><br/>  One obvious effect of these media is that watching them induces people to buy certain products. Television advertising is widespread and, nowadays, even movie theaters permit advertisements. Another way TV and the movies affect people is that they give people either a broader view of the world or a distorted one, depending on what type of program they watch. Those who watch news and educational program can learn many new things while those who watch primarily entertainment shows may come to believe that most people in the world possess great wealth and good looks. It may make them become dissatisfied with their own lives. Finally, perhaps the most susceptible viewers are children, who may be unable to tell fact from fiction and may try to imitate acts that they see on TV or in the movies. <br/><br/>  With the ever-increasing popularity of video entertainment, society must pay attention to these effects. Television and movies, while entertaining and informative, cannot take the place of real experience. </p>

<p>控制影视暴力场景的意义(9)</p><p>[题目] <br/>  The government should control the amount of violence in films and on television in order to decrease the violent crimes in society. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this issue? <br/><br/>  [参考范文] <br/>  It is widely acknowledged that the amount of violence in films and on TV is one of the direct causes that lead to our high crime rate in our society. The voice of demanding the government to control violent scenes in media has been much louder than before. Personally, I totally agree with this voice, for it is the most effective way to reduce violent crimes in the real world. <br/>  First and foremost, violence on TV or in films is often portrayed as extreme as possible in order to attract audiences. This will definitely set a bad example for those immature audiences, who, lacking correct parental guidance, are most likely to copy the violent behaviours and commit real violent crimes. <br/>  Next, media, such as TV or film, is considered as the correct information source regulated by the government. It should be reporting and reflecting true phenomena in the society. Violence, as one of the facts in the real world, certainly has to be reported. However, excessive violence is offering misleading information to the public, which will exert detrimental influence to the society. For example, teenagers will regard those killers and murderers in the films and on TV as role models and copy their behaviours. It is recently reported in the news that a seventeen-year-old killed all his family members, one sister and two parents out of hatred and jealousy. In the real world, we are often reminded of the harm and hurt that violence in fictional world has brought us. <br/>  n a word, our society is preoccupied by the violent scenes and plots at present. What the government has to do immediately is to take effective measures to control the amount of violence in media. Only in this way, can our society enjoy high level of security and peace</p>
