Some people prefer to live in the present, others prefer to be prepared for the future and plan ahead. Which do you prefer? Explain why.
I prefer to plan ahead and always be ready for tomorrow. First, I need to plan ahead to feel certain about myself. Sometimes life hits you hard. We must anticipate the troubles coming in our way in order to deal with them whenproblems present. For example, we must choose a major that has the most demand on the job market. This way we won’t waste our time on things that have little real life application. Second, planning ahead means I can always stayproductive. I plan to not only finish my education with an outstanding grade, but also work a part-time job while I’m still a student so after I graduate, I’ll be able to have a resume that can impress my future employers.
Describe one of the most important inventions in the last 100 years.
Well, I want to talk about mobile phones.When I was a little boy, I had been dreaming of calling my friends at any time, wherever they were.Now, with the help of mobile phones, my dream has come true. Communications have become moreconvenient which helps us to keep frequent contacts with our families and friends. Mobile phones have brought us closer and have made the world smaller.
Nowadays we have got many things to cope with immediately wherever we are. If something happens, you have to be informed at the first time or you may lose business opportunities. Many other emergencies such as crime incident reportsalso need immediate communications. In these circumstances mobile phones are indispensable.In a word, mobile phones have made our life more convenient and more efficient.
Do you agree or disagree with the statement that children should do houseworks when they’re old enough?
I definitely think that children should do houseworks when they’re old enough to do so. First, they should help out their parents when they can. If a child takes out the garbage and does the dishes, then his or her parents can takea break and relax for a bit. Second, children benefit from doing these tasks. They spend hours and hours sitting at their desks studying and doing homework assignment. Taking care of some houseworks give them a chance to move around andtake their mind off things. Some housework like gardening is actually quite fun to do.
If you get a chance to choose a job, what will you do?
If I could freely choose any job, I would choose a job where I could do something constructive and beneficial for ordinary people. Definitely it would be something helping people.
Teaching of course is sort of that kind of job---- if you do it properly you can certainly help people. Traditionally in China teachers have been very respected; we have a saying a teacher for a day is a father for life.
Nowadays, attitudes are changing, and perhaps people are more realistic. But my dream isn't changing. I wouldn't be helping them materially but I could give them a lot of pleasure and lighten their days.
