SPEAKING SECTION

 

Task 1:

One of your friends just got a job offer in a town far away from his family. Should he take this job? Please include specific reasons and details in your response.

Brainstorming

explanations:

þ  Broaden one’s horizon

þ  Social network

þ  Fresh experience

þ  Independent life

þ  Privacy

þ  Cost of living

þ  Lose/ get in touch with friends

þ  Family reunion

Sample response

 

In my opinion, it’s good for him to take the job for the following reasons. To begin with, working in a total new place may well be a perfect chance to broaden one’s social network, which of course is of great importance nowadays. What’s more, he will be able to gain lots of precious fresh experience in another town. A colorful life is never dull and be confined in one place. As for being away from the family, the problem can be easily solved by the modern transportation system and fast Internet. 

 

Task 2:

Some students prefer studying with other students to prepare for an exam. Others prefer studying alone to prepare for an exam. Which way do you prefer and why? Include reasons and details in your response.

Brainstorming

In groups

þ  Cooperation

þ  Learn from others

þ  Draw the advantage from others

Alone

þ  Quite environment

þ  Efficiency

þ  Flexibility

Sample response

 

         In my view, I am in favor of studying alone to prepare for the exam. First of all, reviewing by myself is much more efficient than studying in a group for I can control the progress of my work without worrying about others. If I encounter a problem, I may just call one of my friends. Secondly, the time can be flexible when studying alone, while working with my classmates means that we have to set a regular schedule. I don’t like that, to be honest. 

 

Task 3:

【学生倡】:女生Jessica 在校上写倡信,建学校的radio station应该多放音,少播announcements,以吸引更多学生听。

【学生度】:男生反此倡。理由一,很多commercial radio stationsmusic,有的台甚至全天都play music。想听音的学生可以去听那些台的目。学生都有自己喜的音台。学生不会因学校的radio stations多放音,就不去听他们爱听的音台的目了。理由二,通收听学校的announcements,学生可随了解学校的最新信息。

Sample response

 

Jessica suggests on the school newspaper that there should be more music program on the college radio station rather than plenty of announcements, which may lead to more student audience. However, the boy is against her opinion. First, he says that many commercial radio station play music all day long and students all have their own favorite stations so that they are not likely to turn to school’s program just because more music is being played. What’s more, the announcements can let students know the latest news happen around which is pretty useful. 

 

Task 4:

【名】:人在面一个problem候,有两种选择:一是do nothing,二是去采取行take action。人一般会do nothing,因taking action很可能negative effects

【教授例】:教授了自己的例子。自己几周前开去赶机,一路都挺smoothly,但后来遇traffic jam,堵了半个小,基本一这时,他想到了an alternative road,只不那条路有点绕远。最,教授是决定在条路行继续等待,因他都已等了很久了。如果去另一条路,万一那条路也堵呢?最后教授missed他的flight

Sample response

In the reading material, a phenomenon is mentioned when people are facing problems. They will either do nothing or take action to solve the problems and most people choose the former option for taking action may result in negative effects. In the listening materials, the professor raises a personal experience to support this finding. On his way to the airport a few weeks ago, it went quite smooth at first but then there was a traffic jam. Instead of taking an alternative road which might mean getting around a little bit, he decided to stay where he was since he had been waited for some time. What if there was a heavy traffic on the other road?  In the end, he missed his flight.

 

Task 5:

 

【学生困】:男生的biology要和教授去纽约presentation。男生本人也可以去帮忙,但他发现,有关部他出hotel,不出transportation。男生很苦

【解决方案】:女生男生两个方案:方案1,提前机票。但男生说马上就要出了(departure day),临时买机票会很。方案2,改坐火去。但是坐火纽约得要一天的时间,而且是如果坐火,男生就会miss掉某学科的review session。那个review session很重要。

Sample response

The boy has a problem of whether to go to New York with his biology professor for an presentation since the relevant department can only pay his hotel expenses while the transportation fee is on his own. Based on his particular situation, the girl gives him two solutions. First, he can by the ticket way in advance, but the departure day is close and tickets at the very time are quite expensive. Second, he may take the train instead; however, travelling by railway costs a whole day and he thus will miss an important review session. I prefer the second solution because for one, train fare is definitely much more cheap and for another, the importance of that presentation outweigh the review session so that he cannot miss the chance.
