WRITING SECTION

Integrated writing task

Topic discussed: 美国国家铁路客运公司AMTRAK是否由政府管理

Notes

Reading: 

政府管不好

1. 会浪费钱on routes

2. 对私人公司不公平

3. 人们更愿意drive cars而不是坐amtrak

Lecture: 反驳

政府管好

1. amtrak不是以盈利为目的,保留一些routes是政府让偏远地区居民更加方便,如果卖给私人公司会减少这些道路。

2. 事实上政府在各个方面资助了airlines, including building control towers, control offices, weather

3. 人们不愿意坐是因为过时、破旧。如果翻新了,人们还是很愿意坐的。比如日本和欧洲。人们偏好舒适和快捷,因此修复好之后人们会放弃开车而选择amtrak.

Essay question

Getting advice from friends who are older than you is more valuable than getting advice from friends of your own age.

【话题提示】

agree: elders have more living experience than young people

1, smart choice in dilemma

2, useful suggestion in personal relation--love

Sample answer

 

When we are young, our life is simple and easy, the most worries for us is which lollipop should be saved to the last or how to win a matchbox from a friend. But when growing up, we have to face a brunch of complicated situations, job application, career choice, office rivalship and love relation, choices can never be as clear as to choose A or B on a test paper. Immersed in hardship, we hunger for useful advice, which mostly from older friends rather than from peers.

 

There’s no doubt that elders have more living experience than young people, which means a difficult situation you face for the first time may be an easy cake for them. Career choice is one dilemma young people face when they graduate from a university. Assuming that two job offers are in front, one is from a big joint venture but the salary is relatively low, the other is from a small private firm, while the position and salary they offered is much tempting. As a green finger, young man may take the second offer due to vanity, but if he can consult with elders, he can realize the risk in choosing a small private company, as when the whole industry goes downtown, small businesses are certain to die out. Advice from the older friend usually leads to a good consequence.

 

Another difficult situation most young people have to face is love relation. When hormone plays a leading role in a love relation, young people may ignore education degree, family background and social hierarchy. However, will the relation remain stable? Frankly speaking, my answer is a definite “no”. Appearance determines the formation of a love relationship, but whether these two persons have common topics, close concepts and similar values decides whether their relationship can last long and healthy. In this situation, counsels from the elder may calm your fever and guide you a direct relation.

 

Suggestion from older people may sound out of date or too realistic to accept in some way, but I do believe what they experienced can benefit young people, just like an ancient proverb, “who will not ruled by the rudder must be ruled by the rock.”
