1. What charactereristics do you think a good teacher should have? (06. 3.3; 07. 11.3考题)
In my view, a good teacher should have different characteristics.
First, a good teacher should be faithful and dedicated to the job. If a teacher is faithful to the job, then s/he never cheats and will be impartial(偏向) and students will respect such a teacher. If a teacher is dedicated towards his/her work, then s/he will teach with his/her heart.
Another most important characteristic of a good teacher is patience.
Teachers should never lose their patience in class when students ask questions repeatedly. A teacher should explain each and every aspect of the topic in the easiest way.
Most of all, a good teacher should update his/her knowledge ‘cause further learning can make a good teacher re-discover the beauty of the teaching profession.
2. What are important characteristics you look for in friends?(06. 5.12; 06. 6.24; 07.1.27考题)
I think what makes a good friend is someone who is honest, supportive, and has a good sense of humor. I just look for someone who''''''''s honest to me no matter what. He should not tell stories behind my back; he should tell me my short-comings at my mouth, but never praises me in front of me.
It is a well known saying that "A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED." Therefore, a friend should stand by you in the hour of any sort of need. I just think that a good friend won''''''''t leave me if I''''''''m in trouble. They can be my friends in sunshine and in shade, care for me even when the times are bad and even more when the times are great.
Also, I''''''''d love to spend more time with someone who can make me laugh and is fun to be around.
3. Describe a person that influenced you most.(06. 5.26; 06. 3. 17;06.10.22考题;与06.5.26类似)
The person that really influenced me most was Ms. Xing---my college teacher who taught us English literature.
Her class was quite different from the other teachers. In her class we were not expected to sit there and listen. We had to get more involved in the class activities, like discussions, comments or debates sometimes. Our creativity and imagination were developed enormously through the active participation.
On the other hand, she let us think more about life by sharing her experiences and more importantly, she taught me how to live on my own. So that''''''''s why I was greatly influenced. Not only did she give me knowledge, but also she gave me courage and confidence as well.
