SPEAKING SECTION:

Task 1:

Describe a piece of news or a story that you’ve been interested in recently.

Brainstorming

news or stories in

þ  literary works

þ  movies

þ  daily news

þ  magazines

Sample response:

 

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter series, the novels of British author J. K. Rowling. The stories in the books never fail to fascinate me. The hero of the series, Harry Potter, is an orphan who discovers at the age of eleven that he is a wizard. He is invited to attend school to learn the magical skills. It is there that most of the events of the novels take place. Harry develops through his adolescence, learning to overcome the problems that face him, magical, social and emotional, including ordinary teenage challenges such as friendships and exams.

 

Task 2:

Some students prefer to take an essay question where they must write an essay to a question. Other students prefer to take a test with objective questions. Which type of exam question do you prefer? Give reasons and examples in your explanation.

Brainstorming

objective questions:

þ  quickness

þ  fairness

þ  convenience

þ  review

essays:

þ  thoroughness

þ  accuracy

þ  reading

þ  time-consuming

Sample response:

 

I prefer taking objective questions instead of writing essays. I have three reasons. First, objective questions are really ‘objective’. It is either answer A or answer B with no options in between. In this way, things are getting easier and fairer as far as scores are concerned. Secondly, it takes much less time to finish objective questions. While the essay requires hours after hours of preparing, writing and polishing, objective questions need only a tick of pen. Finally, objective questions are more convenient to review afterwards. Locating your previous mistakes is much easier for objective questions than essays.

 

Task 3:

学校要在宿舍开餐厅,有利于大家交流学习也给大家提供了另外一个吃饭的地方。女的不同意,第一,认为宿舍附近餐馆已经很多,学校没必要再建。第二,在宿舍开餐厅会影响学生的日常休息,在学校也能交流学习。

Sample answer:

 

The school plans to open a cafeteria in dormitory for two reasons. First, students can find a place to exchange ideas and discuss problems. Second, they can hand out and eat in the cafeteria. The woman disagrees on the grounds that there are already a number of restaurants and coffee bars near the dorm, so it will be a waste of money to open one more. Besides, she points out that the new cafeteria will bring noises to the dorms, disturbing students’ daily life. They might as well talk at school instead of in the cafeteria.

 

 

Task 4:

Sample response

 

 

 

In the lecture, the professor uses his own example to illustrate how molding is adopted in advertising. In the example, the professor mentions that he didn't want to buy an ice-cream machine at first, for he considered it complicated to make ice-cream. One day, when he came across an advertisement of an ice-cream machine which explained in detail every step of making ice-cream. He changed his mind. The process may not be as complex as he thought. At last, he bought the ice-cream machine and began to make ice-cream by himself.

Sample response:

     In the dialogue, the woman has a problem that her photos are supposed to be present in the exhibition tonight but she left them at home. There are two solutions. On the one hand, she can go back home and take them immediately but she will miss the review in the afternoon. On the other hand, her mother can bring her the photos tomorrow and she can present them then.

I prefer the second solution. First, I think study is the top priority for students, so she cannot miss the review. Second, I think her friends can still come to see her photos tomorrow if she just tells them the truth. Her friends will understand that.



Task 6:

 

一些动物的妈妈会让同种族的年轻一点的女性来照顾自己的小孩,这样她就可以出去采食和活动,同时也训练了那些即将当妈妈的养育技能。

Some animals let other younger female animals of the same kind to look after their babies. There are two advantages. First, they can look for food and do other activities as other female animals are looking after their babies. Second, when those females look after other's children, they can learn some mothering skills, which are helpful for them when they become mother someday in the future.
