Part 3

1. Describe a gift that took you a lot of time to prepare

1) How do people usually choose gifts?

Sample answer:

In general, people choose gifts according to the receivers’ preference. For instance, people prepare pens for person who likes writing while person who likes certain musician may receive a concert ticket as the gift.

 

2) Why do some people find it hard to choose gifts?

Sample answer:

It is because it is difficult to know what people’s demands and interests. Moreover, the price of the gift should not be too high or too low, or it may cause some misunderstandings.

 

3) Do you think practical gifts are always better than other ones like cards and flowers?

Sample answer:

It depends. Although practical gifts are always the things on receivers’ wish list, presents like cards and flowers also show people’s best wishes to the receivers. It is also meaningful and precious to some degree.

 

 

2. Describe a movie you would like to share with your friends

1) What kind of film is popular?

Sample answer:

I believe action movies are popular because they show many physical stunts. If there is heroism, fights involve guns, swords or karate moves, horseback action or any destructive forces of nature. In these movies, it’s usually a fight between the good guys and bad guys. They are thrilling.

 

2) Do you think cinemas will disappear in the future?

Sample answer:

Yes, ticket prices are on the rise and after fluctuated dramatically over the years, moviegoers may not be willing to spare the extra charge. Besides, from a movie-lover perspective, it’s hard to justify that there is a lack of good movies out there. Finally, with so many at-home options to stream and watch movies, staying home on a Saturday night has never been so desirable.

 

3) What kind of film do young people like to watch?

Sample answer:

Action movie as I said. Besides, they like to watch romantic movies and thrillers to kill their free time. These movies are quite popular among young people.

 

4) Do fewer people choose to watch movies in cinema than people did in the past?

Sample answer:

Yes, going to cinema is troublesome, because there are so many people in the cinema at the same time, and watching movies there can be distracting. Besides, tickets are expensive that fewer people would rather go there.

 

 

3. Describe a time you heard a stranger talking on the phone in the public place

1) Why do you think some people talk aloud on public transport?

Sample answer:

Firstly, I think that depends on different people. Children generally are self-centered and don’t pay attention to their behaviour in public transport. Consequently, they tend to talk aloud or make noises wherever they go. As far as adults are concerned, however, it generally has something to do with people’s habits. Some people are used to talking aloud, whether in public or in private places, for years or even decades, so they do not take other people’s feelings into account. These people might not realize that their loud noises disturb other passengers or even worse, they do not care about others at all. Since they mostly do not realize this impolite habit that has been kept for so long, it is hard for them to change. Also, it depends to a certain extent what kind of public transport you’re on and how long the journey is. For example, if you’re taking a 30 minutes journey on a bus, many people might take that opportunity to make a quick call, which can be acceptable provided that it’s not too loud. However, it is unacceptable that someone on a three-hour train journey talking very loudly the whole way,so short conversations are less offensive than long conversations.

 

2) Should people be banned from talking aloud in public places?

Sample answer:

Personally, I believe that it depends on what kinds of public places. The essence of good manners is to make another person feel comfortable. If people are in public places where loud noises are expected and do not disturb other people, like live concerts, bars and sports events, they should be allowed to talk aloud. The reason for this is that loud noises can spice up the atmosphere on these occasions and lead people to have a great time. On the other hand, in order to show others respect, people should be prohibited from talking aloud in public places where noises might give others a hard time or invade their personal space, such as in the library or hospital. On top of that, I think it also depends on the specific situations. Sometimes, genuine emergencies do occur, and some calls truly can’t wait. For example, I think it’s acceptable for people to talk loud on their phones in public place if people are trying to reach their hearing-impaired or elderly family members, parents are expecting an important call from their child, and those in the midst of a crisis.

 

3) Is it bad to talk on the phone in public places?

Sample answer:

Well, I think it really depends on what types of public places and different situations. First thing first, if people are in some noisy public places like live concerts, pubs and major train stations, it should be appropriate to talk on the phone. As long as people can keep their volume modest while talking on phone in public places, I think it is fine. More often than that, when our phones ring, it is quite hard to find suitable places quickly where talking doesn’t annoy anyone else. Therefore, it is alright so long as the chatters do not disturb others. However, if the public places require utter silence, it is inappropriate to talk on the phone. For examples, it’s quite rude and inconsiderate to talk on your phone in a quiet classroom or library. What’s more, making phone calls may cause some safety issues, for instance, cell phones can interfere with the functioning of delicate instruments in airplanes and hospitals.

 

4) Why do some people always break rules in public places?

Sample answer:

There are a couple of reasons that can explain this phenomenon. To begin with, despite the knowledge of rules in place, some people decide to ignore the rules for their self-interests. Some people believe that they have to keep their personal freedom even in public places, and they would simply ignore warning signs or challenge the regulations as long as they aren’t caught or punished. For example, some people believe that cell phone bans intrude on their personal freedom and they can use the devices wherever and whenever they choose as they pay a high monthly price for this communication option. It’s pretty common for smokers to enjoy their cigarettes in some restaurants or bathrooms in spite of the “No Smoking” signs and anti-smoking regulations. Secondly, some people do not realize what they are doing is against the rules, therefore they fail to obey rules that they do not know. Last but not least, some people believe that most likely they are not going to get caught when breaking rules. It’s not uncommon that some people make significant mistakes by taking unnecessary risks. Therefore, warning signs or notices should be placed properly in these public places.

 

 

4. Describe a crowded place you have visited

1) Do you think that cities are overcrowded?

Sample answer:

Yes I do. The city I live is definitely overcrowded since people from all over the country flock here. They come for different purposes. Some want to study here and others determine to settle down in this city. One can usually see a large number of people walking in the streets and waiting at the stations. The rode gets very congested and there are traffic jams everywhere.

 

2) What are people’s feelings when they are in crowded places?

Sample answer:

I believe most people will feel stressed and irritable when they are surrounded by too many strangers. For example, people are often frustrated by daily commute and they are tired of fighting with huge crowds every time they go out.

 

3) How to make cities less overcrowded?

Sample answer:

Well, I think the government should figure out the approach to cope with the urban congestion.  They should develop the surrounding areas, building industries and improving educational and health systems there. Then more job opportunities will be created, and that will attract people to work and live in the vicinity of the metropolis.

 

5. Describe a special day that made you happy

1) Do people spend too much money on their birthday party and wedding?

Sample answer:

Yeah, I think so! It’s a Chinese tradition to celebrate birthday and wedding by holding grand banquets especially for the wealthy. These days, with the remarkable improvement of Chinese people’s living standard, increasingly more and more families tend to hold the birthday party and wedding in a luxurious way, such as holding a feast or a buffet in a Michelin-starred restaurant, hiring some famous presenters to host a party, and even inviting some superstars to give performances.

2) How much should people spend on their birthday party and wedding?

Sample answer:

Well, I believe it’s quite hard to decide how much money people should spend since different families have their different standard. Some families will just have a fancy dinner with their relatives to have a family reunion while other families may celebrate their birthday party and wedding as extravagant as possible. From my perspective, it varies according to families’ different social economic status. Nevertheless, I don’t think spending a lot of money on those things is a smart way. It is likely to fade the true meaning of the wedding, not to mention cost a lot of money.

 

 

6. Describe a piece of clothing you enjoy wearing

1) What's the difference between the dressing style of young people and that of old people?

Sample answer:

Well, compared with young people, most of the older people are often uninterested in fashion and more interested in conservative outfits. Fashion is for the young. Older people tend to wear more comfortable clothes and they already have a full closet of things they like. They prefer to hear that “you look good” rather than “that is a nice outfit”.

 

2) Do the people living in south China (warmer) wear different clothes from the people living in the north (colder)?

Sample answer:

Obviously yes, particularly in winter. Compared with the north of China, south China is warmer and more humid. For instance, people in the north would wear thick down jackets, overcoats, caps or even gloves in winter. Nevertheless, people in the south would simply wear sweaters and outwears. They even don’t need to buy any thick down jackets or gloves if they don’t go to any other places.

 

3) Do you think students like to wear uniforms?

Sample answer:

Well, I don’t think so. The vast majority of students are not into wearing school uniforms and the reasons are diverse. For some students, they regard the school uniforms are ugly especially the girls. The other students think that the school uniforms restrict them from showing their characteristics and aesthetic views. It is difficult for you to distinguish one student from others because all the girl students or boy students look the same with school uniforms and similar hair styles.

4) When do people wear formal clothes?

Sample answer:

People wear formal cloths to fit the dressing code to show their respect for the special event. For example, I wore formal clothes to the interview to show that I was serious about the matter. Thus, compared to those candidates who don't wear formal clothing, I can leave a good impression on the interviewers. Likewise, in a variety of occasions, such as dinner party, commercial meeting and wedding ceremony, formal clothes are also requisite.

 

 

7. Describe a time that you gave advice to others

1) What kinds of advice do parents give to their children?

Sample answer:

As role models and protectors, parents always give advice and instructions to their children in their daily lives as well as in their schoolwork.

For one thing, parents will ask children to act on their requirements concerning their habits, say, when to go to bed, when to get up, what kinds of food they should choose to eat and how often they should do exercise, for the sake of the health condition of their children. Also, it is common to see parents suggesting children to arrange their time by using a time table hanging on the wall.

Furthermore, parents like to interfere with children’s learning habits and academics. For example, they may ask their children to summarize the key points and collect their mistakes occurring in the homework in order to prepare for the upcoming tests. Besides, if the GPA of children suffers for any of the reasons, their parents are likely to advise them to sign up for some kinds of after-school classes.

 

2) How do experts give advice to others? (e.g. a doctor gives advice to his patients)

Sample answer:

In this day and age, many people prefer to go to professionals for advice once trouble and emergency happen. These professionals range from doctors, shrinks, teachers to lawyers. Experts in different fields have their own ways to give suggestions to others.

For example, when doctors give advice to their patients, they often scare them off by showing the dire consequences of certain lifestyle of diseases, because it is likely that these patients will not perceive their diseases as serious and severe and follow their directions if they are not informed of what will happen in the future. After that, they will list several key points and give out the medicines the patients need to take or activities they need to engage in in order to mitigate health problems.

Contrary to doctors, teachers will directly point out the problems of students and straightforwardly persuade the parents to take their children to classes or supervise their children at the time they do homework.

 

3) What advice did parents give to teenagers about making friends?

Sample answer:

Since it is hard for teenagers to distinguish right from wrong and easy for them to believe in others, it is imperative for parents to give advice regarding interpersonal relationship.

First, they will tell teenagers that not everyone is what he or she shows. There are certain group of people who intend to achieve certain goals, for example, sell goods or reap profits, trying to be considerate, patient, easygoing and trustful. However, what they really are may be totally different. They may be indifferent, money-oriented, egocentric and selfish. So, trusting others easily will drive teenagers to be cheated.

Also, parents will advise teenagers to make friends with intelligent people, because intelligent ones may have a satisfying school performance, or they may cleverly balance their work with their daily life, or they are able to deal with different people. Children can always learn from intelligent people so if they have smart friends, they can be influenced subtly and better themselves in the future.

 

4) Whose advice is more helpful, parents’ advice or friends’ advice?

Sample answer:

The main source of advice is parents or friends for modern people, and it is reasonable to think that friends may be the ones who offer the most practical and useful suggestions.

The first reason is that they are at the same age with us, so it is easy for them to stand in our shoes and experience what we have experienced. Unlike them, parents are already in their 40s or 50s, making it hard for them to imagine the situation we are in. In this sense, the advice offered by friends will be most likely to cater to the current occasion.

Also, it is believed that parents are rigid and care too much about what should be done but not what we want to do. So, if we are faced with problems in dealing with people, they tend to suggest us to endure the wrongdoings of others rather than advise us to take measures to reveal the immoral behaviors. But since friends can understand us more, they will be apt to figure out what we desire to do and offer corresponding advice.

 

 

8. Describe a place where you read and write (not your home)

1) Which is more important, reading or writing?

Sample answer:

In my opinion, reading is more important than writing. Because reading is the input of the knowledge while writing is the output of the knowledge. Input is the precondition of output. For example, before you write a thesis, you need to read up a lot of references. Furthermore, without a careful reading, you may not write high-quality essays.

 

2) Who needs to have good writing skills?

Sample answer:

I think students need that. They need to write different materials. For example, they have a lot of tests, especially in Chinese and English tests. They have to write compositions. And test grades are important for all the students. At the same time, every university student needs to write an essay in order to graduate successfully. So, the writing skills are very important for them.

 

3) Where can people get more information, words or pictures?

Sample answer:

I think we can get more information from words. Because words provide a direct meaning to us, we can avoid ambiguity. And people can read words easily in everywhere and any time. On the contrary, I don’t deny that we can also get information from pictures, but different people have different perceptions of them, it’s hard to reach a consensus.

 

 

9. Describe a time when you did not tell a friend the truth

1) Do you think mutual trust between friends is important?

Sample answer:

I can see eye to eye with this statement. In this way, we can get along well with each other and share some secrets. Also, we will ask for help without too much consideration when we are in trouble.

 

2) Do you think people need to tell the truth all the time?

Sample answer:

I don’t think so. Sometimes white lies are necessary. For example, there are occasions where people don’t want to hurt others’ feelings and then people normally choose not to tell the truth. Also, parents tend to tell white lies to kids because kids are not strong enough to take bad or disappointing things.

 

3) Why do children tell lies?

Sample answer:

When children made mistakes, they are afraid of punishments so they tell lies to their parents and teachers. For example, students tend to say that they are late for school due to traffic congestions instead of waking up late. They try to use lies to beautify their misconducts. Of course, sometimes children also tell white lies for good reasons.

 

4) What should parents do if their children tell lies?

Sample answer:

Parents should always be patient and manage to understand why their children lie. They need to teach them not to lie to others. Children are in a special state of life when they are forming their belief, philosophy and attitudes toward life, society, and the whole world. So they have to know that telling a lie isn’t a correct thing. Otherwise, they might make up things and fake their lives, or even hurt people and finally hurt themselves. So, it is pivotal to teach kids who are lack of judging capability and self-control not to lie to lie.
