Which of kind of method will you use to solve the misunderstanding between you and your friend?
1.A friend of yours is going to study at another university and he’s worried that he won’t be able to make any friends there. What suggestions would you give him and why?
2.Describe how you met a friend and why you became friends.
3.Is it important to have good manners in your interactions with other people? Give details and explanations to support your response.
方法1：make a compromise 作妥协
方法2：communicate as soon as possible 及时沟通
①相互了解想法能够站在彼此的立场看问题(take on other’s shoes);②两个人都不说话，会营造尴尬紧张的氛围(embarrassment)，不利于矛盾缓解和问题解决;
方法3：try to be polite 礼貌得体
①学会用恰当的表达说明自己的观点，让人更容易接受一些，例如使用一些委婉语(euphemism);②用争吵去解决误解，只会让矛盾激化，因此要让自己的行为足够令人舒服和愉悦，不要说极端的话以及口不择言(speak with thinking)。
I should say, there are two possible ways for me to solve the misunderstanding. First of all, when the conflict comes out, try to communicate with your friends as soon as possible. If we don’t try on other’s shoes, we would see the problem only by our limited perspective. For instance, once I quarreled with my roommates because she occupied the toilet for half an hour and I had the badly call. Then she realized my anger but without any reply. We didn’t talk to each other for two days. Indeed, it is in the class group discussion when we talked openly. At that time did I realize she had a serious stomach at that day! So, if you don’t want to be in embarrassment with people around you, I think the immediate communication is quite necessary.
Which do you think is better? Deciding on your major before entering college or after taking some courses?
I definitely would choose to decide my major after taking several courses. Here are the couple of reasons to name. In the very first place, after attending a group of specialized courses, my understanding about the future career would become more profound. Nowadays, there are a lot of subjects sound attractive but do not conform to the name or the title. For example, the major called Civil Engineering. It is not relating to the people of a country, but the construction of roads, bridges as well as buildings. So if I had the opportunity, I would test my suitability of choosing my long-term major. For instance, whether I feel interested, or whether I can do the work related well, or else, whether I can get a good grade. The thorough comprehension is quite necessary.
Many school require young children(aged 5-11)to work together in a small group instead of working alone to learn many activities. Do you think it is the best way to teach children?
这个分类其实来自于这样一个问题：Should Children go to Preschool?对于这问题大家也是各有见地，正方观点无外乎为培养孩子在集体生活的能力，具体可以写以下几点：
1.Children will learn many early social skills and manners
2.Children will realize that they are not the center of the universe
3.Children will begin to learn sharing, taking turns, following directions
4.Children will gain a sense of pride in their independence
5.Children will quickly and easily learn things like letters, numbers and other cognizant learning skills.
所以，这道题我们就分成 5-7岁vs. 7-10岁：让步段可以在上面的5个论点里面随便挑两个写，转折段相信睿智的同学们已经想出来了吧。不错，让步段就可以围绕“独立思考能力和培养个性”来写。
让步段：Certainly, by no means can we underestimate the valid part of the statement in question especially when children aged five to seven are involved in this topic.
转折段：It is true that children should be required to work together in a small group, but applying this advice to all children is ungrounded, particularly for children aged seven to ten.
