1.Freshmen often find it hard to adapt to the university life, thus your university has adopted one program to help freshmen adjust to the life in your university, which of the following program do you think is the most suitable one? Give your explanation in your response.
1)establish an information center
2)arrange a sophomore as a partner
3)orientation project for 4 weeks
In my view, the most suitable choice should be the information center. Because such a center will be professional and provide specific information. The staffs working in such a center are mainly responsible for providing information, then their information tends to be accurate and reliable. It may tell freshmen many things like the opening time of the library, which kind of foods is provided in certain cafeteria, how we should use the gymnasium and so on. However, sophomores sometimes are busy with their own stuff and orientation project may cover some information students have known. Therefore, I think the information center is the best choice.
2.The community in your school is going to start new courses at weekend for students to study. Which of the following courses would you like to choose?
1)courses on how to deliver a speech
2)courses on improving your photography
3)courses on business skills
As for these three courses, my favorite choice would be the business skills.
The most important reason is that my major is business management and in the future I desire to be a boss in the travel industry. However, I know running a company has never been an easy thing. There fore, taking such a course may help me to improve my business skills like how to establish a company, how to exploit the market, how to promote the sales, how to manage my employees and so on. All these are not only useful to my major study but also beneficial to my future development. That’s my choice.
3.Your school plans to open a new section for the student newspaper, which one of the following would you suggest they add? Why?
2)Tips and advice about student travel
If our school newspaper was starting a new section and we had a choice of film reviews, student travel or restaurant reviews. I think it would be best if we use the section to do restaurant reviews. First off, I don’t think students travel a whole lot, so a travel section wouldn’t be too helpful. Also, for film reviews, first off not everyone is into film and secondly everyone is into different kinds of film. So a film review might be fun but I don’t think it’s too helpful.
On the other hand, restaurant reviews are very helpful. All students need to eat and we need to know what restaurants are affordable and good and in our general area. So I think restaurant reviews would be extremely helpful for everyone.
4.If a mayor is to selected from the following candidates, who all have no political experience but are successful in their own field, which one do you think is the best candidate for mayor?
1)A university professor
As for being a mayor, I think maybe the best choice is the university professor.
For one thing, a professor may have the adequate knowledge for regulating the society. Such as knowledge on politics, knowledge on how to boost economy, knowledge about the culture and social life. Then he might be more likely to promote the development of the city.
For another thing, a professor may have excellent communication ability. I think being eloquent is necessary for a mayor. Well communicating with the general public being able to bargain with other politicians and negotiating with various departments and so on. All these may help the person to govern the city better.
That’s why I think the professor is the best choice.
5.If there is a chance for you and your friend to open a company, which kind of company or industry would you like to choose and why? Give specific explanations in your response.
If having the chance, definitely we will open a small travel agency because we are fond of travelling. When having such an agency, we may travel to many countries around the world along with the clients. If there are guests going to Singapore, apart from taking care of the guests, I may also have chance to taste the authentic Singapore foods like Chili crab and admire the view of Marina Bay Sand and largest infinity swimming pool in the world. If there are guests going to America, I may get the chance to see the White House, the Niagara Falls and many prestigious universities and so on. I think opening a travel agency will enrich my life.
6.Talk about the advantages of moving to a new place to study or work.
In my opinion, moving to a new place to study or work has the following advantages. First, you have more chances to get to know new and interesting people, which helps to expand your social circle and give you more opportunity to make new friends. For example, I met my best friend Linda after I was transferred to a new senior high school in a new city. Second, you are also more likely to be exposed to a new local culture and experiencing totally different life-style or cultural values, which might be totally surprising and fascinating.
7.Describe how you met a friend and why you became friends.
The friend I like to spent time with is Steven. I met him when I was only 8 years old and was in primary school. After that our intimacy grew up and we became best friends. One day he forgot to bring his book in school and that day I helped him with my expired books. After that we talked for a long after school and our friendship started to begin. We went to college together and then got admitted in different Universities. Since we were studying in the same city, we can meet each other and spend time together.
8.Describe a family activity that you enjoy most. Please use specific reasons and example to support your response.
I myself and my family are huge fans of NBA games. When we are together, it is so exciting to watch a close game. After watching, I often invite my family to play basketball in the court. They often feel surprised for my endless energy, because I am always the last one to surrender after they have been exhausted. Although I sweat like a camel and my face turn red from the heat, I am still full of passion. I guess it is taking exercise regularly that contributes to my vigour. Also, playing basketball not only can strengthen our bodies but also turn us more courageous. I really enjoyed playing basketball with my family。
9.What kind of clothing do you usually wear and why. Please include specific examples and details in your explanation.
To be honest, I don't pay much attention to the clothes I wear, because I believe that there are more important things in life than clothing. However, my normal attire is usually formal. Firstly, formal clothes are required for work and for occasions such as meeting elders and attending gatherings. So wearing formal clothes every day prepares me for every eventuality.
Moreover, formal clothes are easy to wear: a pair of pants, a shirt and shoes is all you need. Formal clothes are timeless: they will never be out of fashion. These are the reasons I usually opt for formal clothes.
10.One advantage or disadvantage of universities located in small town or rural areas.
Well, the advantage of studying in a small town is that it is not as expensive as going to college in big cities. It costs far less. Students pay less tuition, rent and other kinds of living expenses. Also, living in the country can help me to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape from the concrete jungles, busy street and the crowd in the city. I can get close to mother nature. On the other hand, the drag of going to college in a small town is that there are less internship and job opportunities compared with these in the city. Plus, there is not so much fun to do in the country. It is a bit boring.
