Part 2

1. Describe a historical building

You should say:

Where it is

What it looks like

What it is used for now

What you learned there

And how you felt about this

 

Sample answer:

What I am about to describe is a building that once marked cultural and historical apex but that has now fallen into obscurity. That’s right; it’s the Confucius Temple, Confucius residence while he was living. It’s located in Qufu, a small town in central Shandong Province. Like any other temple, it has got a lobby beyond the entrance, with the portrait of Confucius hung on the wall. There are three bedrooms on either side of the lobby, but that area has become off-limits to tourists, so I didn’t really get a peek of that. Though the building has been standing for thousands of years, it has been subject to multiple renovations in recent decades that gave the building a semblance of modernity. I have to resort to my imagination to picture what it originally looked like.

 

Now, the entire area has been converted into a tourist hot-spot. Visitors pay an entrance fee to visit the building; many would kneel before the portrait of Confucius to pray for blessings, after which they will throw cash bills into the so-called wish box in a hope that their wish will eventually come true.

 

Despite all the fuss over the history of the building, I don’t believe the place is worth another visit. As I have mentioned earlier, it smacks of money filth. The temple is run by a few monks, although whether they are authentic and genuine is beyond my knowledge. The money is simply taken by the government to rebuild other parts of the town. Unless you are a true believer in such ritual, it is a waste of money and you wouldn’t truly disappointed if the purpose of your visit is to learn something about Confucius and its history.

 

 

2. Describe a person who encouraged and helped you to achieve a goal

You should say:

Who this person is

What this person encouraged you to do

How this person helped you

And explain why this encouragement helped you to achieve the goal

 

Sample answer:

Last year, my weight reached an all-time-high. I was literally shocked to see the number on the scale, suspecting something must have gone wrong with it. When I did the calculation of my BMI, I was looking at a figure that was beyond the threshold for morbid obesity. For the first time in life, I felt the strong urge to lose weight.

 

But the thing is the fatter I got, the more challenging it would be for me to stick to the workout plan. I didn’t believe I got the determination to exercise regularly to reduce my weight to the average standard. However, my friend Josh egged me on. He is an active member of my university gym and he said that he’s got some weight-loss tips. I believed him; well, if you’d seen his six packs and upper-body muscle, you’d understand what I am talking about. He set a rather ambitious goal: he promised me I’d lose at least 20 pounds in a month, so long as I stick to his plan. Thanks to his encouraging words, I jumped on board.

 

In the first few days, I felt as if the thinner me was being dragged and squeezed out of the flesh wrap that trapped me in. My muscles were sore and I couldn’t feel my legs. At some point, I even began to convince myself that being fat wasn’t so bad after all; if I kept doing exercises, there would be a good chance I could literally die. But Josh was there after my every workout, helping massage my muscles and instructing me on my dietary intake for the next day.

Miracle happened in 10 days, when I already lost six pounds and ten more in the next 10 days. At the end of the plan, I lost nearly 25 pounds. I was genuinely grateful for Josh. If it wasn’t for his encouragement or as I had always called it “psychological manipulation”, I would’ve long given up.

 

 

3. Describe a school you went to in your childhood.

You should say:

 Where it was

 What it was like

 What you learned there

 And how you felt about it

 

Sample answer:

When it comes to the topic about schools I attended in my childhood, the first primary school I went to in my life comes to my mind immediately.

 

The primary school I’m about to describe used to be located in the west of the countryside where my late grandparents lived. It is a textbook example of village school, with almost all of the pupils coming from the village. In my memory, the primary school was medium-sized and surrounded by walls. A variety of Chinese characters like hard working and motifs with symbolic meaning were painted on the outer side of each wall in bright red color. The school gate was set in the front facing to the north, with the name of the school written on the wall next to the gate. Opposite to the gate, there was a two-storey main building. Rooms on the first floor acted as classrooms, with the teachers’ office at the end. Rooms on the second floor were left for extra-curriculum activities, such as handicraft facture or that sort of activities. To the west of the school building, toilets were sited and connected to the main building by a vestibule. The space between the main building and the gate was the playground for pupils to take P.E class or do the physical exercise. The area for raising national flag lied in the east of the school. It is worthy to mention that trees with large canopy were planted around the playground, allowing students to shelter from the heat in hot summer.

 

I used to spend three years there for learning primary courses from the first to the third grade until moving to the city with my parents. I learned the basic knowledge about Chinese and mathematics there during the first three years in primary school. For example, I acquired the skill of reading and writing as well as the knowledge of basic arithmetic. By contrast to primary schools in most cities in China, the total number of students in that primary school was much smaller. Therefore, the population of students in each class was just around twenty and they had been close friends since their childhood. Although many years passed, I still keep in touch with my playmates regularly. To me, that primary school is more like a large family full of love and care.

 

 

4. Describe a time a child made you laugh

You should say:

When it was

Where you were

Who the child was

What the child did

And explain why you laughed

 

Sample answer:

Speaking of a child that made me laugh, the first person that comes to my mind is Dongdong who is the son of a Chinese renowned star.

 

Dongdong is a warm hearted and lively boy. Even though he is only 5 years old, he has joined many outdoor reality shows since he was 3. His humor, kindness attracts plenty of audiences, and of course, I'm one of them.

There was one time he joined a reality show in Hunan TV, and this program was about talking to foreigners on the street just for chatting or fun. I really expected this part because I know Dongdong can't speak English and I was wondering how he could talk to that foreigner. Here comes the funniest moment, Dongdong used body language and special Chinglish to show what he wanted to ask. For example, he asked that foreigner “how big are you?” The foreigner was confused because he didn't know exactly what big means. That was the part I laughed out loud, because I know Dongdong wanted to ask him “how old is he.” In Chinese, big means age. In the end, Dongdong said I'm 5, and you? The foreigner finally understood his question and replied right away. Although it seemed a little awkward, I think he is so funny and adorable.

 

And the other day, this funny event was on the top search in Weibo. I’ve watched that highlight for another 20 times or so. No kidding, I laughed every time I watched. And I believe when he grows up, he will laugh too. I really appreciate that child who gives me happiness.

 

 

5. Describe an occasion when you got incorrect information

You should say:

 Why you got it

 When you got it

 How you got it

 How you found it was incorrect

 And how you felt about it

 

Sample answer:

I still remembered that last summer vacation, I traveled in a coastal city on my own, it was after dark and I planned to enjoy seafood to meet my appetite. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my bearings. Since my navigational device was out of service, you known, there were a lot of hills all around here and my calls got cut off several times, so I had no choices other than asking people for help to get right direction. Hence, I walked along the street and encountered a person who looked caring to tackle my pressing problem. He pointed me out a direction and I decided to get my destination. After about 30-minutes’ walk, I felt uneasy and anxious, coz it was totally different from the place where I looked around on website. It was after dark, traffic was light and no one else was around. At that time, I found my phone worked, I was hurried to call the police and he would give me instant help after a while.

I felt not good coz it’s time-consuming and energy-burning, I spent a lot of time finding my direction which meant that I rarely had time to get rid of stress. I couldn’t enjoy the breeze, drink coconut with a straw or just lie on the beach to do sunbathing and appreciate the beauty of mother nature. Plus, I didn’t set aside extra time to purchase loads of local specialty as souvenirs for my immediate family, which left me bad and lasting impression.
