Some people think that the library is waste of money and computer technology is replacing the function of library’s. To what extent do you agree or disagree? (20161008)
It is widely acknowledged that computer technology provides people with more efficient way to complete their assignments. Once people are required to search for wanted information, they can refer to materials only by clicking on the mouse and typing on the keyboard. By contrast, going to libraries and reading books are time and money-consuming. People have to look for the information through a complicated process.
There is no denying that the advent of the computer and the Internet has made it possible for people to access information conveniently at home and in the office. In comparison the construction and maintenance of the library need to cost more money and the storage of paper books means that a large quantity of wood resources would be consumed for paper making, which may have adverse impacts on the environment.
However，we cannot deny the importance of the existing of libraries. The library is an ideal place for people to enjoy reading, acquire knowledge and participate in cultural activities.The atmosphere of the library encourages people to read and the experience of sitting in the library is different from browsing web pages at home.
1、News has a remarkable influence on people’s opinions and ideas. Do you think it is a positive or negative change?
2、Some people argue that it is important to ban advertisements aimed at children. Some people think that advertising gives parents useful information. Discuss both views and give you own opinion.
3、Some people suggest that there should be restrictions on a detailed description of crimes in the newspapers and on television. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Exposure to coverage of crime can lead to the fear of crime. The representation of crime in the media reminds people that dangers can strike at any time or location while life is tenuous. They are preoccupied with the idea that they are at a higher risk of victimisation. This has an adverse impact on their quality of life.
Extensive media coverage of crime can cause a sharp rise in crimes.
Viewers of violent crime, especially young viewers, are particularly likely to imitate offensive behaviours, in the mistaken belief that these offences do not have serious effects. Even worse, many young viewers even perceive criminals as idols or role models and adopt violent means to settle their conflicts with other people. Regulators should therefore impose restrictions on televised violence and keep crime coverage in check.
It is argued that we are living in a throw-away society: people throw away what they use in daily life, instead of recycling or reusing them. Why has this happened and how to address this issue?
写作一定要知道拿到话题要把关键词画出来，比如这个题目是throw-away society. 并且进行了解释，扔东西不去循环使用等。作为报告类文章，接下来需要对此的两个问题，一个问题一个段落。
There are several contributing factors related to the throw-away lifestyle. The main reason is that the society, as well as the citizens, is now in a flourishing economic condition. As economy boosts, citizens would have a huge amount of disposable income. They, therefore, are unlikely to reuse the goods but would buy new substitutes as long as they can afford them. Lack of awareness of environmental protection would be another cause concerning this phenomenon. Since some environmental issues have not put pose a threat to citizens’ personal interests yet, citizens may not have a thorough understanding of the significance to protect environment in daily life. People without this awareness would develop a throw-away lifestyle. Another possible factor may be relevant to the frequent update of products. Advanced technology ensures that new versions of products would be introduced with short intervals, leaving thousands of options to customers in market. Customers, with sufficient income, would keep pace with the rapid development and dispose their used goods.
To address this concern, several effective measures could be implemented. Government, as the influential character in the society, could advocate the importance of environmental protection to the public. Recycling used items could be suggested as an environmentally friendly way by government and reward systems could be established for residents reusing goods. similarly，an effective but severe way is to enact a law related to recycling. Under this law, individuals could be required to follow rules such as a minimum usage time before disposal. Besides, companies could make an effort to mitigating this phenomenon by making the newest version of system available for previous models. In this way, customers could extend usage time of old products with advanced functions.
1、Students who are not talented in foreign language learning should not be required to study a foreign language. Do you agree or disagree?
审题：关键词 not talented 、foreign language。是一件事情，分别讨论没天赋的孩子学习外语的好处和坏处。
The main reason is that English studying plays an indispensable role in people’s lives, which offers the opportunity for them to get job promotion. It lies in the fact that English is a fundamental requirement for some industries such as science research and accounting, which requires the exchange of documents in different countries. Learning English can help people to get a deep insight of these files and improve their decision making process.
After learning English, people can travel abroad without worrying about language barrier. English has been regarded as a universal language. When travelling abroad, people who have English abilities can easily get an understanding of other culture and disseminate knowledge and skills of our nation.
The drawback of English studying is that it would demotivate students’ interest, impose a detrimental impact on their class performance. Especially for those who are without language talent, they would lose their interest in learning English, therefore that may result in their drop of school.
2、Nowadays, distance-learning programs have gained in popularity, but some people argue that courses can never be taken as good as those by attending a college or university in person. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Distance - learning programs can offer a flexible schedule for citizens to acquire knowledge, so it is possible for people to overcome barriers to education. Especially for those who are already in the workforce, they can attend classes and gain further education when it is convenient to them while they do not have enough time to attend universities in person.
However, it is undeniable that traditional classroom setting is more welcomed in the world. There is a widely held notion that distance-learning program is not intended for mainstream students. Students who decide to take online courses should be the one who are well-motivated and self-discipline because there are many distractions when they sit in front of computers to take courses. Besides, students are more likely to get proper feedbacks in a timely manner if they attend universities in person. They can consult professors when they have difficulties, this would be beneficial to their understanding of the lesson.
1、Some people think that rich countries giving international aid to the poor countries has positive impact. Others argue that it may lead to problems. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
2、Many countries spend a lot of money in art. Some people think investment in art is necessary, but others say money is better spent public services and facilities. Discuss both and give your idea.
3、Instead of asking the government to bear the cost of higher education, students should pay tuition fees themselves. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
It is worth mentioning that university education is the key to bridge the gap between the poor and the rich. There are numerous students, especially those from low income families, who cannot afford educational expenses. Because of financial constrains, people of low socio-economic status are at a disadvantage in terms of educational opportunities and career development. If the government provides free access to education, children from disadvantaged background can get into the college and find decent jobs in future. This can close the social divide and create a prosperous country.
With government funding, schools may lack enough money to upgrade facilities and recruit well-qualified lecturers, which can have a negative impact on students’ academic achievement. College education needs many well-paid professors and various advanced facilities. In other words, it needs a great sum of money. If the college students do not pay the tuition fee, it will lay heavy burden on the government. If the government is unable to invest enough money on university education because of the limited budget, the quality of education cannot be ensured.
Some hold that environmental problems are too big for individuals to solve, while others believe the problems cannot be addressed unless individuals take part in it. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
当然，最后的结尾可以是个人、社会还有政府make concerted efforts in tackling such a pressing problem (个人、社会还有政府齐心协力解决污染问题)。也可以提一下政府投钱，科学家研发新技术从根本上解决环境污染(address the tough issue once and for all)。
