SPEAKING SECTION

Task 1:

In your opinion, what are some important characteristics of a good school?

Brainstorming

þ  Uniform

þ  Facilities (library, laboratory building, hall, cafeteria…)

þ  Faculty

þ  Programme

þ  Schedule

Sample response

 

As I see it, school facilities is a very important element to be considered, especially the library and the student center where student spend most of the time on their study. Besides, the cafeteria can’t be overlooked for eating is a main part of one’s daily life. I will find out whether the food is scrumptious and if the service is nice in a school before  I apply for it.

 

Task 2:

Some people prefer to have friends who share the similar ideas of the world. Others prefer to have friends who hold different ideas of the world. Which do you prefer?

Sample response

 

      I suppose that having friends with similar ideas towards things is better. To start with, we can avoid the frequent disagreement on things from whether the government should make college education free to if Titanic is a touching film. Apart from that, it’s really hard to for me to hang out with someone liking the totally different stuff from me. I think we may hold a separate view towards one place, say, nightclub. That would be awful.

 

Task 3:

Reading 学校计划把图书馆旁边的student center改造成new library,从而扩大图书馆的面积,好处是:有更多的空间摆放更多的书(shelves, materials)等;可以放更多桌椅,让学生有更多地方自习。

Listening 男生反对。因为学校可以通过technology的手段为图书馆扩容(资料扫描存电脑);学生本来就爱去student center自习,缩小其面积自会影响自习空间。

Sample response

 

The reading passage is about an announcement of changing the student center into the new library to gain more space for shelves and reading materials and to provide spacious room for students to self-study.

In the listening, the boy is against the suggestion. He thinks technology may help solve the space problem for data can be scanned and loaded up into the computer and besides, students love to study at the student center rather than the library so that this change is actually away from its purpose. 

 

Task 4:

Reading referential alarm calls)动物碰到天敌会发出警告信号给同伴,而且遇到不同的天敌会发出不同的信号。

Listening 教授举例子。一种非洲的哺乳动物meerkat,大部分时间在地下生活,但会冒出地面找食物。他们有两种天敌:大鸟和蛇。meerkat碰到大鸟时会发出很大声的警告,同伴听到就会跑回地底下,等到大鸟离开再出来;但碰到蛇时,会发出另外一种声音,同伴听到就会汇聚集在一起,把蛇吓跑。

Sample response

In the reading passage, referential alarm calls is mentioned which is a signal animals give out for their peers to stay alert of the natural enemy.

And in the listening material, professor points out the case of meerkats which tend to live underground but will go to the surface for food. Their two main natural enemies are big birds and snakes. If meerkats find the former, they will make this kind of loud sound to warn others and then they will quickly hide in the burrows. As for the snakes, meerkats will produce a different signal to assemble their companions and scare the predator away.

 

Task 5:

 

女孩修双学位想上暑期班,两个挣钱的途径,一个去图书馆,但是占用很多时间,她怕没时间学习;第二个想法是自己在宿舍做饭,带到学校来吃,这样就能省很多钱,也就不用去图书馆工作了。

Sample response

The girl in the listening material wants to get a minor degree so that she has to join this summer school but faces the financial problem.

Now there are two solutions available. The first one would be working at the library at the sacrifice of her time to study. The second one is cooking on her own at the dormitory so that she can save loads of money without going to take the part-time job.

I prefer the former advice since she can study and work at the same time and cooking, on the contrary is time-consuming. Besides, part-time job is a good chance to gain social experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Task 6:

公司会用slogan来让顾客很容易记得,有两种slogan:第一种是针对整个公司的形象,这种slogan会比较general,让顾客对公司有好印象,信任他们的产品。

e.g. furniture公司会用"product that last",让顾客觉得他们的家具很坚固可以用很久;另一种是针对某项产品的,这种会focus on a special featuree.g. portable printer会用"print as you go",针对他的可移植性来广告。
