Sample answer 2
An enjoyable event that took place in my childhood was when I first got my first dog--- Gus.
I was ten and had been pestering (纠缠) my parents for a dog for years.
One day I came home from school, my parents said they had a surprise for me and it was waiting for me in my room. I ran up to my room and threw open the door. I found a tiny puppy with a red bow around his neck at the foot of my bed. He was fast asleep.
The next day I took him out and played fetch, chase, tug of war(拔河), and hide and seek. In winter, we had a snowball fight. Well, he didn’t actually throw any snowballs at me, but he DID try to knock me down to keep me from forming the snowballs. He was so cute! We both had a lot of fun.
I think that was a great happy event in my childhood.
2008. 3. 30 真题3. Describe the most disappointing event in your life and explain why you were disappointed.
I went to the Nordstrom store at Xidan, which is about an hour’s subway ride away from my home. I bought some perfume and some skin care products and I also asked for the perfume atomizer ( 喷雾器) bottle.
When I got home, I opened the perfume box, finding out that the sales rep (representative 的简称) gave me the wrong bottle. It was the large bottle that wasn‘t an atomizer and wasn’t refillable. I was very upset, as now I would have to make another 2-hour round trip if I wanted to return the product for the correct one. I have decided that I would just keep the bottle I purchased and not deal with the hassle ( 麻烦 trouble) of the long ride back to the store.
I was very surprised at my experience considering I have friends that rave about ( 对… 着迷 get mad/wild/crazy about) the knowledgeable, friendly and helpful service they get at Nordstrom's.
I hope Nordstrom gets back to the good customer service they have always been known for.
