SPEAKING SECTION

 

Task 1

Your friend has been offered a job that's far away from his hometown. Do you think he should take it or not? Give specific reasons and details to support your response.

Sample response

In my opinion, he should not take this job. There are two chief reasons. First, a job far away from his hometown is money-consuming. It is known to all that nowadays people have to spend a large percent of their salary on car fare. If he takes the job, he has to spend more money on the fare. If he chooses to rent a house nearby, the expensive rent is also inevitable. Second, a job far away from hometown is time-consuming. As we all know time is gold. If he takes the job, he has to waste a lot of time on the way.  Therefore he shouldn’t take this job.

 

Task 2

Do you agree or disagree that teachers should encourage students to have class discussions during class? Give specific reasons and details in your response.

Sample response

So far as I am concerned, teacher should encourage students to have class discussions during class. A good teacher should be able to inspire students to learn rather than force them to learn. They should encourage students to apply what they have learnt to solve the practical problems. Class discussion gives students this opportunity. A high proportion of teachers just cram knowledge into students’ brains. They seldom give students a chance to show their initiative. Therefore, teachers should encourage students to have class discussions during class not push them to learn things passively.

 

Task 3

【提议】:学校决定在学生宿舍10点后宵静。这样做可以营造安静的氛围还可以减少学生间的争吵。

【学生议论】:女学生同意

理由一:女生指出由于宿舍太吵,所以她不得不呆在图书馆学习。如果这项规定能够实行,她就可以在宿舍里学习。学生也能得到更好的休息,以饱满的精神去上早课。

理由二:她的朋友经常和她的室友争吵因为室友听音乐时总是把声音调的非常响。她抱怨室友不听劝阻,如果规定能够实施学生的生活能更有保障。

Sample response

The school is planning to set quiet time at 10:00 pm in the student dorms. This regulation can cut down noise made my students and reduce conflicts among students. The female student agrees with this idea. There are two chief reasons. First, she has to study in the library now because the dorm is too noisy with all the parties going on. If this policy goes through, she can get things done in the dorms. And students can go to bed earlier, and get ready for early classes. Second, her friend had some arguments with her roommate because her roommate always listens to music at a high volume, she complained but the roommate won’t turn it down. It will make student’s life easier if University make the new plan a reality.

 

Task 4

【名词解释】:Impact Bias:人们往往错误估计了某件事对于他们自身的影响以及影响持续的时间。

【教授举例】: 教授讲了他的女儿想要申请一所大学,因为她的朋友申请的这所大学有非常好的教育。她认为如果没有被这所大学录取她就没有前途。结果她没有成功,但是她在忙着高中毕业还有准备她的暑假。于是她很快忘了没有被理想的大学录取这件事,继续过着她的生活。

Sample response

Impact Bias is that people have inaccurate expectations of the impact certain event will have on them. Both the intensity and how long it would last. The professor gives an example of his daughter. The professor’s daughter wanted to apply to this University because her best friends are applying and the University’s got a great educational program. She thought her life will be ruined if she didn’t get it. It turns out she wasn’t accepted. She got very upset about it. But she was busy taking care of her high school graduation and planning her summer vacation. Pretty soon she forgot about her misfortune of being rejected by the school, and move on with her life.

 

Task 5

【学生困难】:男生收到邀请和教授一起去参加NYC的会议,但他不得不自己付旅费。

【解决方案】:

方案一:他自己买机票去NYC

评价:能够见更多的人,有许多学习的机会,有时间做准备。但是机票很贵。

方案二:乘火车去NYC

评价:可以节省许多钱,但是更费时,这样他就会错过一节很重要的课。

Sample response

The man is invited to go to a conference in NYC with the professor he’s been working with, but only hotel will be covered, he will have to pay for transportation himself. There are two solutions he can choose. First, he can buy a flight ticket and fly to NYC. The advantage of doing that is he can meet people and have opportunities to learn; besides, he has more time to be prepared for presentation. But the ticket is rather expensive. Second, he can take the train to NYC. He can save some money by doing that. But the train ride takes one day; he will miss an important class. In my opinion, he should buy a flight ticket, its advantages is obviously. The opportunities cannot be measured by money.

 

Task 6

The professor talks about how animals that doesn’t live underwater do to stay under the water. The first way is to reduce movement in order to save oxygen. For example, alligators hunt under water by staying very still, basically no movement. In doing so, it can cut down heart rate, therefore cut down the need for more oxygen. The second way is to minimize the time spent under water. For example, brown pelican dives down to catch fish in the water. It doesn’t go to deep, and it has air sacks that open when in the water. That will help the pelican to get back to the surface as fast as possible for oxygen.
