SPEAKING SECTION

Task 1:

Describe a person who always makes you laugh. Explain why the person is funny. Include details and examples in your explanation.

Brainstorming

persons like:

þ  movie stars

þ  clown 

þ  comedian

þ  best friend

þ  colleague

þ  neighbor

þ  partner

þ  kids

Sample response:

 

There is a comedian in my city known for his quick tongue and humor. Being so successful, he even has his own talk show on local TV channels. Every time I watch his show, I cannot resist the temptation to burst into laughter. He is pretty good at acting, with dramatic voice and plenty of body language, which keeps his audience laughing throughout the show. He is also an expert in commenting current affairs. Drawing pieces of news and stories, he invariably points out the deep motives and teases the authorities. Everybody regards him as a funny guy.

 

Task 2:

Some people prefer to live in a place most of their lives. Other people prefer to move to different places. Which do you prefer and why

Brainstorming

live in one place:

þ  stability

þ  peace

þ  job security

move to different places:

þ  people skills

þ  challenges

þ  adventures

Sample response:

 

    I prefer to move to different places in my life for three reasons. First of all, it improves my people skills. I have to communicate with people of diverse languages, religious beliefs and characters. Furthermore, I may encounter quite a number of challenges. As a restless young man, I feel excited to face those challenges. If I can handle them well, it would greatly boost my confidence. Lastly, different places bring new adventures. Life is a long journey. As the saying goes, “keep moving, don’t settle”, the meaning of life lies in endless exploring and learning. With so many interesting persons to meet, wonderful sights to see, sweet memories to share, adventures are truly the treasure of life.

 

Task 3:

有个学生写信给校报建议给一些走读的同学柜子放书。这么做的好处:首先书多拿来拿去麻烦;其次顺利张贴重要信息。学生议论:男生反对。理由一:寝室也离教室很远,有住寝室的同学也要一直把书搬来搬去。理由二,信息可能通过别的途径看。问:男生对此建议的态度和理由。

Sample answer:

 

One of the students wrote an open letter to the school newspaper, suggesting giving some lockers for off-campus students. First of all, it can save them the trouble of bringing books back and forth. Second, important information may be posted on the lockers. The man disagrees. In his opinion, dorms are also far away from the classroom, so students live in the campus face the same trouble. Besides, there are bunches of places to post public information, so it is unnecessary to put them on lockers.

Brainstorming

graduate recruitment 毕业生招聘

internship 实习

Sample response:

     In this dialogue, the woman is faced with a problem. The person in charge of recruiting new members for the radio club falls sick and cannot do the work. The woman comes up with two solutions for this problem. First, she may go to the enrolling activity at the cost of missing a group meeting. Second, she can ask her roommate to do her the favor of enrolling new members. The concern here is that her roommate is not the member of the radio club.

In my view, I prefer the second solution, so the woman will not miss her group meeting, which is very important for her. She shouldn’t miss the meeting, for it’s not her fault anyway. Although her roommate is not one of the members of the radio club, the woman can tell her the exact requirement for enrollment.

Sample response

 

Sometimes, people suffer memory gap. The causes of memory gap vary, but there are mainly two types. One type refers to wrong source information. As the source is not accurate enough, our memory is surely incorrect. The other type refers to misleading by others. We may have some memory that is probably true by not deep enough. It is very likely to be misled by others. Under both circumstances, memory gap is formed.
