SPEAKING SECTION

 

Task 1

Do you think it's a good idea that some schools to require students to finish 40 hours of community service each year.

Sample response


I think it's a great idea to have such a policy for the following reasons. First, 40 hours is a short period of time in a year. Just think about how much time students spend on hanging out with their friends. And they should contribute to the society instead of only receiving from it. Second, lots of these volunteer works are quite enjoyable; besides, you can learn a lot from doing that. Such as gardening, planting trees, or helping children with their homework can help you to develop certain professional skills.

 

Task 2

Do you agree or disagree with the statement assignments handed in late should receive penalties.

Sample response

I agree that assignments turned in late should receive penalties. There are two chief reasons. First, if students who turn in their assignment late have no penalties, they may do that again and put everything till the last minute. That will be a problem for teachers. Second, handing assignments on time is students' duty. It's a virtue that they should cultivate on campus. And they can benefit a lot from it in their future career. So, proper penalties is inevitable and sometimes should be encouraged when students violate the discipline.

 

Task 3

【提议】:学校决定为图书馆更换节能灯,并且减少夏天开空调的时间来省电。

【学生议论】:女生不同意

理由一:节能灯太暗所以学生会自己带台灯,反而会浪费更多的电。

理由二:如果学校减少开空调的时间,学生就会在寝室里学习,但寝室太吵。

Sample response

The university will add overheated lights in library, and reduce the use of air conditioners. The woman disagrees with the plan. First, since the light is not bright enough, people will still use the table lights. It will cost more electricity. Second, if the school library doesn't have air condition, students don't want to study in the library. It's hard to study in dorms with noises going on.

 

Task 4

【名词解释】:Virtue by association

【教授举例】:教授举了小镇选举的例子,教授把票投给了一个出身较好的人,但当选后表现却不怎么样。

Sample response

Virtue by association means when we don't know someone well, we will judge this person according to the people or organization that are related to this person. The professor gave an example. The town where the professor lives had a mayor selection. He voted someone who was born from a nice family because this candidate's mom used to be a pretty good mayor 20 years ago. But this new mayor didn't behave well after being selected.

 

Task 5

【学生困难】:学生校外住宿,要买一台打字机些报告。

【解决方案】:

方案一:买一台二手的,因为便宜

评价:质量得不到保障

方案二:买一台新的

评价:太贵

Sample response

The man needs to write research papers, but he lives off campus. So, he wants to buy a printer. There are two solutions. First, he could buy a used one; it's cheap, but the quality cannot be guaranteed. The second solution is he could buy a new one. He can use for a  long time but the price is high. I recommend the man to buy a new one if he can afford that, because the research paper is important. If the printer broke from time to time, it may cause a lot of troubles.

 

Task 6

【讲课要点】:The professor talks about two situations that animals don't drive others away from their own territories.

一种:The first situation is that there is plenty of food in the territory.

描述:For example, sunbirds don't drive other hunters away in places where has a lot of flowers.

二种:The second situation is there's limited resource.

描述:So animals won't waste energy to fight for it. They would look for other places where have better resources.
