Do you think the high school should teach music andart as other basic science? Include details andexamples to support your opinion.(05. 12.2 考题)
Yeah, I think music and art should be included in highschool curricula as other basic science.First, musicand art can provide entertainment and pleasure forpeople. If a person has learned how to understandand enjoy music and art, he would enjoy his lifebetter.Second, music and art present us with insightinto the internal and universal nature of humanity.In this sense, they are as important as other basicscience. For example, an impressionist painting or a Beethoven symphony or the ballet SwanLake,they are all a revelation of human spirits or weaknesses.What’s more, the process ofexploring music and art can develop students’ creativity and their ability of expressing theirown thoughts in unique ways. I think the inspirations from music and art can improve people’screativity.
Do you think sports courses should be a required part of every school day? (06. 9.23 考题)
Definitely they should. I have got a couple of reasons here.First, in sports classes, students willdo a lot of exercises which benefit their health a lot.Second, sports courses can fosterinterests in sports among students. This is very important you know if they love a kind ofsports they would play it regularly all through their life. Thus, the benefits of doing exercises willlast for a life time.What’s more, in sports classes, students will participate in team-playedsports games such as basketball and football. In these games, they will learn to cooperate witheach other. You know, in this society, teamwork and cooperation are of vital importance.
Also, these games will enhance their friendship.Some students like classes where teacherslecture in class. Other students prefer classes where the students do some of the talking.Which type of class do you prefer?Well, I prefer the latter one.I find it’s quite boring in classeswhere the teachers lecture and students just listen. In this type of class, I often fall asleep inthe tedious lecture. I believe many students have the same experience. The problem is thatteachers and students can’t interact, as a result students can’t follow the teacher’s points andthe reasoning process.However, if we could do some of the talking, teachers and studentscould have an efficient communication in the interaction, I mean , an exchange ofthoughts.What’s more, when a student puts forward a viewpoint in his talk, others might beinspired and think over it further. The atmosphere of the class would be very active and thestudents would think more and learn more.
Do you agree or disagree that college students should do an internship before graduation? (07. 5.18 考题)
In my opinion, I would definitely agree with this point.The first reason is that an internshipexperience is very important for a college student to find a job. You know, we have learned a lotof theoretical knowledge but it is not enough for us to do well in our practical jobs. We needto do some practical jobs and get some experience which can help us understand theknowledge better. Only by combining theory and practice can we have good performance inour future work.The second reason is that by doing an internship students could get to knowmore about the career he might take up after he graduates. For example, a student majored inelectronics may find it too tedious to do circuit designs in his internship and he could considerdoing something else such as computer programming.
Do you agree or disagree that students will learn more when they have discussions? (07. 6.24 考题)
I definitely agree with this viewpoint.First of all, in a discussion many different views would beput forward and each participator could be inspired by each other’s viewpoints. And in theprocess, wrong points are thrown away and correct and rational points are kept. So eachparticipator could form a more comprehensive view of the problem and have a betterunderstanding of it.What’s more, regular discussions among students could foster a sense ofteamwork and enhance their friendship be effective communications.
Some people believe that students who want to go to university after graduation from highschool should have about one year’s time to get a job to obtain work experience or have atravel to enlarge their vision. Do you agree or disagree? What’s your opinion? (07. 8.11 考题)
I disagree with this viewpoint.First, I think it’s not worthy to spend a year to do those things.Work experience is not necessary for a person to attend university, because you are supposedto study mainly theoretical knowledge in university. The foundation you have laid in your highschool is enough for you to begin your college study. In fact, you can take an internship aftertwo or three years study to obtain experience.Second, university is the best place to enlarge aperson’s vision so a travel before going to university is unnecessary.Third, consider thepotential uses of such a long time, you could do many more useful things. You could attendmany campus activities, you could volunteer in some organizations, and the most important isthat you could finish the first year’s courses, all of which would enlarge your vision and richyour experience.
