☆ What’s your favorite subject/course? Do you think people who major in your field can find a job easily when they graduate? Did your parents choose a secondary school for you?
What are your goals for the future?
My favorite subject is college English coz you know English abilities give you a competitive edge and improve your chances of employment. Besides, I will travel the world with few language barriers if I can speak good English。But it is well known to all that learning a foreign language takes time and energy.
My favorite course is music coz you know the history of music is the history of human society. There are many famous musicians who often play a key role on the development of our community, such as Beethoven ['bei,t?uv?n] and Chopin ['t pin]. Besides, classical music can always calm me down. Listening classical music is one of my favorite leisure activities.
You know, I major in civil engineering and I think people who major in your field can find a job easily, because civil engineering is really a promising field. When I graduated from my school, I found there are a lot of chances of employment which are about civil engineering. Furthermore, most civil engineers always receive a relatively higher social status and good payment. But it is no easy to be a civil engineer, because being a civil engineer requires more schooling and higher degree.
No, they didn’t. But they actually gave me many good advices about choosing a secondary school. I should really thank my parents for this.
☆ What’s your hometown famous for? Is it good for young people? Can you tell me about some recent changes in your hometown? What will your hometown be like in the future? Can you tell me something about the public transport system in your hometown? Is the traffic heavy in your city?
You know, my hometown is a famous fabulous seaside city—Zhuhai. It is famous for its beautiful beaches and delicious seafood. Besides, the cityscape is gorgeous. I really like my hometown not only because it’s beautiful landscape but also the laid back lifestyle.
As I see it, Zhuhai is a good place for young folks coz you know Zhuhai is a peace and quiet city. People there are pretty laid-back. Young folks can go hiking、biking、jogging or camping in their leisure time。This is benefit for their growth。So it is good for young people.
You know, last year the government of Zhuhai proposed many positive policies which were beneficial to the development of Zhuhai’s economy and living environment. So there are more chances of employment for our young generations and the city life is becoming more convenient.
I believe Zhuhai will become a by far more attractive city in the future with these positives policies and the investment environment of Zhuhai will be better.
Zhuhai has a developed public transport system, which is made up of minibus, shuttle bus, ferry, sky train and so on. It is quite convenient for people to take a bus here coz there are loads of bus stations in Zhuhai now. Besides, the bus drivers in Zhuhai are quite gentle.
The traffic jams in Zhuhai only happen in rush hour. So I don’t think the traffic is really heavy in mu city.
☆ Do you live in a house or a flat? Which is your favorite room in your house/ flat? Do you think there is anything that should be improved in your house/flat? What kind of house do you wish to have?
I live in an apartment with my parents. Even though it is really an old one, I still really like it because I have lived in this apartment so long that it contains many precious memories of mine.
My favorite room is my bedroom coz I decorate my bedroom with my favorite toys and books.
I hope that I can have a new TV set in my apartment coz the sound and visual effects of the old one is really bad.
☆ Does your Chinese name have any special meanings? Do you think you’ll change your name in the future? Are there any important traditions about giving children their names in China? Who give children their names in Chinese families?
My family name is QIU and my given name is LONG.I was born in the year of dragon. Long is the Chinese translation of dragon. And my parents hope that I can be strong as the dragon in Chinese legend.
No，I don’t think so coz my name carry some special meaning from my parents。
Yes，I suppose so. In Chinese tradition children’s names are mostly given by their father rather than any others family members.
