1. physical fitness
2. enrich friendship
Transitional words: First of all, Moreover, Therefore
Sample answer ：
From my point of view, sports courses form an essential part of children's education for many reasons.
First of all, doing sports helps maintain the physical fitness of students. Movement coming from physical exertion during exercise promotes circulation of blood to all parts of the body.
Thus, it results in vigor and stamina, which help to prevent diseases and sickness.
Moreover, exercise develops sportsmanship among students. When they play as a team, they are able to identify their role and worth to reach the same goal. It also helps enrich/promote/improve their friendship and personality.
Therefore, I think sports courses should be mandatory (必修的) in school.
A quick mind hardly goes along with a weak body. 身体是革命的本钱。

Well, in my opinion, I would prefer to study in universities located in big cities.
The first reason that I wanna say is that universities and colleges in big cities are much better in many ways. Most of them are well-established, with status and appeal, as well as reputation.
The academic staff, renowned(有名的) and respected, carrying on a proud tradition of scholarship and learning, give me confidence about their appreciable ability and insight.

More importantly, living in big cities provides a variety of job opportunities, which can definitely reduce their concerns upon graduation.

Intro: to all

2. have a better life
3. the whole country’s growth
Transitional words: first, second, third, in summary
结语：should have the same right
In my opinion, all people deserve the same chance at an education.
First, to get higher education is the right of everyone. Nothing stops people from pursuing their right as a human being to have and receive knowledge.
Second, people who have received college education are more likely to have a better life than those who don’t. The amount of education a person acquires will affect the kind of career they enter, the position they'll rise to, and eventually the neighborhood they'll live in.
Third, only when people have equal opportunity to get educated can the whole country sustain its growth. As a nation, we must maintain our competitive status in the world by developing many engineers, technicians and other skilled people.
In summary, I strongly believe that any students, good or bad, should have the same right to earn higher education.

(Some students would choose to study a subject because it brings plenty of job opportunities.
Instead, others would choose to study a subject which really interests themselves, although it probably doesn’t sell well in the job market. Which opinion do you agree about Explain why. )
1. the best teacher
3. long-term success
Transitional words: to begin with, in addition, what’s more, in closing
结语： the most important consideration
Sample answer ：
These two aspects of choosing a major both have their merits, but I still think choosing a major out of personal interest is a better idea.
To begin with, interest is the best teacher. Only when people show great interest in that particular area, can they do well in their academic career.
In addition, interest leads to involvement and involvement leads to enthusiasm and more response, which is very important for a student who’s pursuing a better future.
What’ s more, long-term success depends on performance out of vital interest. Interest in the subject encourages them to take an optimistic view-point and continued action to accomplish their goal. Even when facing tough problems, they are able to tackle them and move forward.
In closing, I agree with the idea of interest being the most important consideration of choosing a subject.
