1.Which one of the following factor do you think is most important when it comes to traveling? Low cost, good weather, or various activities?
Well the most important factor I could consider when travelling is weather because I mean the whole point of travelling is to do stuff outside. So if it's bad weather like it's raining or snowing, i would end up staying at the hotel room and do nothing, which would definitely ruin my holiday. Um for example, last month i flew to Sanya, a city in Hainan to spend my winter vacation. And I was supposed to enjoy the beautiful sunshine on the beach. But it was actually raining all day for like three days. So I did nothing and I just stayed in my hotel room.
2.Sometimes people behave impolitely in public. Describe a time when an impolite behavior annoyed you. Explain why you were annoyed.
I’d like to talk about an incident took place in the library last month. I was trying to finish my paper for my finance class. It was the most difficult paper I have ever written. This paper had bugged me for over an entire week. I had a habit of doing my assignments in the library due to its quiet environment. It is easy for me to concentrate. Unfortunately, the guy sitting next to me kept making telephone calls in a loud voice. Everybody, including me in the library was disturbed by his loud and rude voice. I asked him to keep quiet. He was reluctant to lower his voice although many people had already starred at him.
3.An environmental group is planning to organize an activity to help protect the environment. What activity do you suggest and why?
It is a fact that the earth is suffering from severe environmental problems. Measures should be taken to protect our environment. I’d like to suggest an activity. I would invite many people who want to contribute to protecting the environment to go cycling around the west lake. Each bicycle would have a flag with some slogans concerning environment protection on it. There are two reasons why I would do this. Firstly, cycling is an eco-friendly activity. And it’s beneficial to our health. If more people choose to go to work or go to school by bicycle, the environment will be much better. Besides, West Lake is the most popular tourist attraction in HZ. It would be really easy to draw a lot of people’s attention.
4.Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Technology devices distance people far more now than before.
I do agree with the statement that technology devices distance people. In the past, there were not so many ways for people to communicate with each other. The most commonly adopted way would be face to face communication. In recent years, new approaches of communication have been introduced, such as texting, calling as well as video chat. People are reluctant to talk with their friends and family in person. All the messages could be delivered instantly just by using their fingers. Spring festival is no longer a time when every family member gets together to spend some quality time. Instead, everybody keeps looking at their mobile phones. The relationship in a family is getting more and more indifferent. In addition, some young people are addicted to computer games so that they prefer to stay at home all the time.
5.Which of the following groups would you like to join? Campus newspaper, hiking club or dorm improvement committee.
Without a doubt, I would prefer to join hiking club. First of all, hiking is beneficial to my health. I usually spend 10 hours sitting in front of my computer, reading journal articles or coding. Exercise like hiking is totally suitable for me. After hiking, I would probably feel refreshed. It will become more efficient for me to study. Besides, it is a great opportunity for me to make some friends. They might have some positive influence on me. According to a survey, people who enjoy doing sports or exercise usually have a more positive attitude than those who don’t. I could be in a better mood after talking with them. Last but not least, I could eventually have a chance to get close to the nature.
