SPEAKING SECTION

Task 1

Describe one change in your country. It could be a social, political or economical change.

Sample response

Well, I’d like to talk about how English education has been changed in my country in the past 20 years. Two decades ago, students used to take English lessons in a big class containing more than 60 people. What the teachers asked the students to do was simply memorizing as many words and grammatical points as possible. So it turned out that many students could only write English instead of speaking English. At present, the classes are much smaller than before. So the students are able to get more personal attention from teachers as well as more chances to speak during the class. Besides, teachers focus more on listening and speaking, which is very beneficial for students to improve English comprehensively.

 

Task 2

Watching sports games on TV is not a good use of time. Do you agree or disagree?

Sample response

Personally speaking, watching sports games on television is a good use of time for me. To begin with, I don’t have to drive back and forth, so it can save much time on the way obviously. The traffic congestion is killing me sometimes. What also bothers me a lot is that it sometimes takes me almost 20 minutes to find a parking space. So I‘d rather stay at home and enjoy the game on TV. Another point I’d like to mention is that I am a person who is only interested in watching the beginning of a match and the match point. Therefore, I could just skip the part which I don’t enjoy watching and do something else, like workout or housework. Suppose I watch a game at the site, I have to finish watching the whole match instead of leaving halfway. It could be boring and a waste of time to me.

 

Task 3

【提议】:学校打算remove vending machine,因为卖的都是一些没有营养的垃圾食品。并且说学生也可以去学校附近的杂货店买。

【学生议论】:女生持反不同意

理由一:学校可以在用健康食品来取代垃圾食品,鼓励学生健康饮食。

理由二:移走vending machine会给学生带来不方便。因为课间时间很少,来不及去校外买东西。如果学生晚上十点后肚子饿了,就没地方买东西吃因为杂货店已经关门。

Sample response

The university is planning to remove the vending machine on campus. The woman in the conversation is against the decision for two reasons. Firstly, the school says the items sold in the vending machine are junk food with no nutrition, so it should be removed. But the woman points out the school can replace the junk food with healthy food to encourage students to eat healthily. Secondly, the school states that students could buy from food from a grocery store nearby campus. However, the women is holding an opposite opinion by saying that the interval time between classes is too short for students to get food off campus. Besides, what if students get hungry at 10pm when the grocery store is already closed. So removing the vending machine would just bring students inconvenience.

 

Task 4

【名词解释】:generalization effect,在广告上的运用会让产品更加令人记忆深刻。

【教授举例】:听力中用了两个实验来做例子。第一个实验是对着一群人重复几遍一个软饮料的名字,并且最后再次强调了一遍。结果是,几天后大多数的人都没能说出这个饮料的名字。第二个实验是对着那群人重复几遍饮料名字后,最后让他们自己重复。结果是,几天后大多数人都记得了饮料的名字。

Sample response

The reading passage introduces a definition called generalization, which is applied in advertising in order to make the products more memorable. Here are two experiments to illustrate it. In the first experiment, the researcher repeated the name of a kind of soft drink to a group of people several times. In the end, he emphasized the name again to those people. The result showed that most people failed to remember the drink’s name a few days later. The same experiment was conducted among another group of people. The only difference was that after the repetition, the researcher asked those people to name the drink by themselves at the end of the experiment. It turned out that they were able to name the drink this time when they were required to do so several days later.

 

Task 5

【学生困难】:男生是校报的主编,他的工作和一门很重要的政治课程冲突了。

【解决方案】:

方案一:不干这个工作了

评价:但找其他人来取代他

方案二: 这门课到暑假的时候再修

评价:但他和朋友约好暑假要去旅行,大家都很期待。所以他一旦选择暑假上课,就得取消旅行计划。

Sample response

The man works as the editor for the school newspaper. However, he’s faced with a problem that his working hours overlap with an important course on politics. There are two possible solutions for him. One is to quit the job and ask someone else to replace him. The other is to take the course in summer. I would recommend him to take the second solution, for he has already made a plan to travel with his friend during the summer. It would be rather disappointing for both of them if they have to cancel the plan, for they are really looking forward to it. Also, I don’t think it is a good idea to take courses in summer when most others are having fun. It could be rather distracting. I mean, summer vacation is supposed to be used for doing something enjoyable instead of studying.

 

Task 6

【讲课要点】: 鱼如何不让自己沉底的两种方式

一种:靠特殊的鳍

举例:以鲸鱼为例,鲸鱼的鱼鳍就像飞机的机翼一样可以让它保持上升的状态。

二种:靠像气球一样的气囊

举例:这种鱼有特殊的气囊可以在水里吸氧气,同时可以释放气体,这样就可以让身体平稳地漂浮在水上。
