71. Describe an experience when you asked for help from others. How did they help you?
I still remember there was an assignment which required us to do some interview in the street. As you know, it is a hard work for a stranger to assist you. In order to gain stranger's trust, firstly, I told them my purpose of the interview sincerely, and then gave them a gift to thanks them for a cooperation. Finally, most of them were willing to assist us. Well, this assignment definitely improves my various abilities such as communication and so on.
【音频】At the end of last semester I had a tough experience when I was invited to show my dance in a large-scale celebration evening, I had less than two weeks for preparation and I was so busy with my final exams. I told my dilemma to one of my friends who is also good at dancing and has relatively more spare time. He asked me not to be gloomy and promised to investigate the dancing actions instead of me. He learned new dancing actions during the daytime and taught me every night. It did save me a lot of time and I successfully accomplished both the performance and the exams.
72. If you have a chance to choose your job, would you like to choose a job with high salary or that can get personal satisfaction? Why?
Personally speaking, I would like to choose a job which can provide me a high personal satisfaction. Firstly, success for me is a kind of process rather than a result such as a plenty of money. Money and reputation are incidental results to my success. So a high personal satisfaction can let me enjoy this process. Secondly, a high personal satisfaction can give me lots of passion to continue my job. In other words, passion and satisfaction of a job are dynamic to my career not money.
【音频】I agree with that one should choose a major that suits his/her interests. First of all, if you force yourself to learn something you don't like, then you can't be fully devoted to learning it well and may even feel bored. As a result, it will lower your study efficiency and can't prepare you very well for future development. Furthermore, the demand of job market definitely changes more frequently than your interests do. You may find a job popular after you graduate, although it may receive poor recognition by the society when you entered college. So it's wise to choose a major you are interested in.
73. Some believe that the students should do some part-time jobs or summer interns to determine their future career. Do you agree or disagree with the opinion and why?
【音频】In my opinion, every student should do a part-time job or apply for a summer intern before graduate. Firstly, during the intern, we can learn a lot of things much more practical than what we learn in school. For example, a student of finance will put in many efforts in math while studying in school, but during the intern he/she will find the math formulas could do little help. Besides, we can check if we are really fit for the job we dreamed. Take me for instance, I dreamed to be a sales clerk in the supermarket when I was still a child. But when I really work as a salesgirl as my summer intern I found the work was tedious and tired.
74. Describe some kind of skill that you’d like to learn most. Why? Please include specific examples and details in your explanation.
The skill I want to learn most is cooking as the following reasons. Firstly, I'm going to study abroad, so cooking is very necessary for me when i live alone. As we all know that it is very costly for me to eat out always. So cooking is a economical way. Secondly, if I could cook well, I would cook for my foreign friends. Let them know the culture of cooking in my country. Besides these, I can do some part time jobs to earn my pocket money.
Well, the skill that I want to command is to repair large-scale machines, which is of great help in my scientific research. Firstly, if I can repair apparatus in my laboratory all by myself, I won't depend on others. Asking others for solution usually costs considerable time and money. I even have to please them in order to solve the problem as soon as possible. In addition, if I master the skill of machine-reparation, I'll be more familiar with the machine and working principle and can offer help to others. That's why I want to learn the skill of machine-reparation.
75. Some believe that the students should take a one-year break before attending college. Do you agree or disagree with the opinion and why?
I tend to agree that students having a one-year break before entering college. First of all, a long-term break will be beneficial for students both physically and mentally cuz many years of study and exams before college really cost energy, after graduating from high school,. Students can use the break to enjoy life and decide their future development. In addition, it's also a good chance for poor students to use the break to earn certain tuition for their college study. It must be a good chance to improve students' various abilities.
【音频】I tend to agree that students should have a one-year break before entering college. First of all, so many years of study and exams before college really cost a large amount of energy. Therefore, a long-term break after graduating from high school will be a good way of relaxation and this is beneficial for students both physically and mentally. Also, temporarily staying away from books may provide us a different view of life. It may help us expand our vision and find out, in the real world, what we are really interested in and capable of. This may further help us decide which major to choose once we attend the college. So I say yes to one-year break before college.
