SPEAKING SECTION

 

Task 1

If you had to volunteer for a project, which one would you choose? Cleaning up the city, creating bicycle trails, or planting trees? Use details and explanations in your response.

Sample response

I would choose to plant trees if given above opportunities. First of all, trees and plants are the reason why we have oxygen to breath in the first place. For example, when traveling to a rural area, we can notice how the air is much clear outside of the city. This is because there is more vegetation to provide us will clean, life-giving air. Second, not only humans need trees to survive, animals do too. Certain species of animals use trees as their homes and as a source of food. When we cut down trees these animals are left without shelter and food and if we continue to do this, these animals may become extinct.

 

Task 2

When preparing for exams, some students prefer to study by themselves; others prefer to study with a group. Which method do you prefer? Give examples and details in your explanation.

Sample response

I prefer individual study when preparing for the tests for the following reasons. First, individual study is much more effective than group study. For example, I can skip contents that I’m familiar with, or spend as much time as I need on the things I don’t quite understand. On the other hand, I don’t like doing group study much, because we need time to gather up. It takes time for joke around a lot when they get to know each other and become friends.

 

Task 3

【提议】:学校要开设写作中心,这可以帮助学生提高论文水平,还可以给一些学生提供很好的工作机会。

【学生议论】:女学生同意

理由一:教授想看到优秀论文但没有时间帮助学生修改论文。

理由二:学生也能够赚些钱,还能做一些毕业后想做的事,既帮助了别人修修改了论文,还积累了经验,简历也更丰富。

Sample response

The campus decides to open a writing center, which can improve students’ thesis writing skills; besides, writing center can provide working opportunities to some students. The female student agrees with the idea for the following reasons. First, many professors cannot take time off and help students to revise their papers. Second, students can make some money by working in writing center. Therefore, this decision is a win-win situation; it can not only help students to revise their papers, but also help some students to accumulate working experience.

 

Task 4

【名词解释】: stimulus diffusion,指两种不同文化相遇,把其中一些根据自身文化的要求改造并利用。

【教授举例】:教授讲到了north Russia,人们驯养驯鹿,5000年前north Russia遇到south Russia的养马的文化,north Russia 觉得很好也想这样,但是north Russia太冷不适宜养马所以失败了,于是就加以改造开始驯养他们以前打猎吃的肉的驯鹿用来骑。

Sample response

Stimulus Diffusion is loosely defined as the spread of a better idea from culture to culture. And where an idea is diffused or transmitted from one culture to another. This idea then is improved upon or has stimulated another idea or invention. The professor gives an example. The North Russia domesticate reindeers, however, 5000 years ago, the north Russia were exposed to horse breeding culture of south Russia. The north Russia imitated such behavior; however, north Russia is too cold for breeding horse. So they reformed the methods to domesticate reindeers.

 

Task 5

【学生困难】:学生下周和教授去纽约展示研究成果并且希望遇见同领域专家,但生物系只给宾馆费。

【解决方案】:

方案一: 他可以坐飞机。

评价:很快,但是随着日期临近机票越来越贵。

方案二:坐火车

评价:虽然便宜但是要一天会错过历史复习。

Sample response

The student is scheduled to fly to New York with his professor and to display research result. He is looking forward to meet some experts in the same field. But the biology department only provides him hotel expense. There are two solutions he can choose from. First, he could fly to New York; however, the price of passenger ticket is very expensive. Second, he could go there by train. Although it won’t cost too much, he has no time to go over his history course. In my opinion, he should take plane. Compared with the expensive air plane ticket, time is more precious. Besides, as a student, he shouldn’t neglect his studies.

 

Task 6

【讲课要点】:讲两种生蛋保持水分的方式。

种类一:第一种是让蛋壳方便水进入,在水下生蛋。

举例:青蛙在水中生蛋。

种类一:建造保持水分的但,里面可以有包含液体的小包。

举例:生活在干旱地区的一种蛇。
