SPEAKING SECTION

Task 1:

Please explain why computers are important for students.

Brainstorming

explanations:

þ  convenience

þ  information

þ  pastime

þ  social network

þ  environmental-friendly

þ  competitive edge

Sample response

 

When Bill Gates of Microsoft dreamed of having a computer on every desk and in every home, he did not realized how fast things can go. Today, virtually all young people have their own computers, especially students. The reason behind it is simple. Computers bring convenience to people’s life. There is no need to look up the newspaper for jobs and internships; all you have to do is a click of mouth. Besides, students can make friends with similar interest and passion by using computer-based social networks. In this way, they are well informed about the latest development in their researching area.

 

Task 2:

Is it always good to keep honesty? 

Brainstorming

Yes:

þ  integrity

þ  credibility

þ  frankness

No:

þ  white lie

þ  love

þ  flexibility

Sample response

 

         In my view, honesty is the best policy. Friends are to be trusted. When choosing friends, I would consider honesty as the top criteria. Sometimes, we may be worried about hurting other people, for the truth is cruel. However, it is far better than the feeling of getting cheated. The same goes for acquaintances or strangers as well. No one likes dishonesty. A company will sooner or later go bankrupt without credibility. A country lacking of the quality of integrity will be looked down upon. A person short of frankness is not trustworthy.

 

 

Task 3:

校园清洁日学校要招志愿者分成几个小组给学校做卫生,这一天结束后有个聚会。男生持积极态度,他觉得这样不仅对当天的环境有好处,对将来的环境也好。志愿者们的同学看到他们这么做也就不会乱扔东西了。结束后开个聚会很好,可以吸引学生,并且鼓励大家。

Sample response

 

The university launches a Clean Campus Program, advocating students to participate in and clean the campus by groups. After the activity, a party will be held for those volunteers. The man holds a positive idea. He thinks the activity can not only make the campus cleaner but also arouse the students’ environmental awareness. Besides, he thinks the ensuing party is super cool, for it may attract more volunteers and give them encouragement.

 

Task 4:

老师经常用排除干扰的方法使学生远离学习注意力分散问题。教授举了个例子,他当小学老师的时候,有个名叫史蒂芬的学生靠窗坐,他总往窗外看,注意力很不集中,后来老师就把座位调了,让那个学生远离窗户,那个学生就集中注意力了,而且学习成绩也好了。

Sample response

The reading passage discusses the skill of ‘stimulus reduction’, which keeps people from getting distracted. In the lecture, the professor illustrates the concept with his own experience. Once being an elementary school teacher, he found that one of his students, named Steven, who sat beside the window of the classroom, was always distracted by the birds and trees outside. So he changed Steven’s seat to a place far away from the window. This greatly improved the kid’s concentration in class and helped him achieve academic excellence.    

 

Task 5:

 

男生明天要表演莎士比亚的戏剧,但他的搭档感冒不能来了,这个表演占总成绩的分数,所以很重要。女生给出两个方案:要么跟教授谈谈,重新安排时间,等搭档身体恢复。要么让他搭档带病坚持表演。男生说下周他还有一个表演作业要完成。

> problem: The man has an important drama performance tomorrow. His partner happened to be ill and cannot make it.

Brainstorming

Solutions:

  1. talk to the professor and postpone the performance
  2. ask his partner to perform in spite of the illness

Concerns:

  1. he has another performance next week.
  2. his partner caught a cold

Personal recommendation:

2nd solution

Reasons:

  1. She may overcome her illness.
  2. he can finish both performances.

Sample response

The man is faced with a problem: one of his stage partners is sick but the performance is important. The woman suggests him to explain to the professor and asks him to rearrange the time, but the man says that he will have another stage performance next week and it will be hard for him to memorize two story lines together. Another suggestion is that he may ask his partner, Sarah, to come in spite of the illness. In my view, the second suggestion is better. The man should ask Sarah to come if he really needs her help. She would understand that.

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Task 6:

动物聚居的分类:一类是大象,他们之间互动比较多且复杂。其中一个受伤,其他成员会互相帮忙。另一类是鱼,虽然他们的成员很多,但互动很少。他们数目太多,群居的目的只是为了防止外来的侵略者,互相不认识,并不会互相帮忙。

Sample response

 

The lectures introduce two types of social groups. On the one hand, there is the group with interactions, for example, group of elephants. Whenever one of the elephants is sick, others will take care of it, bringing water, food and even nursing its baby. On the other hand, there is the group without interactions, for example, fish groups. Although a large number of them stay together, there is no communication among them. They barely know or help each other.
