What do you think is the most important thing that parents tshould teach their children?
建议描述的思路：1)先表明自己的观点，什么事是最重要的 。可以从有利于培养孩子成长的生活技能入手。比如how to make a living, 2)阐述为甚么重要的原因，可例举2-3个。比如可以从孩子成长的独立性来论证观点。3)总结强调自己的观点。
I would like to say the most important thing that parents should teach their children is how to make a living. The reasons are three-fold. First, no one can rely on his or her parents forever. In order to live, one must learn the way of making money from his or her parents as they are most reliable people. Second, one won't be independent until he or she can make a living by himself or herself. Learning to make a living can make people become economically independent. Besides, knowing how to make a living would help reduce parents' income pressure. So to speak, making a living is prior to any other subjects that parents should teach their children.
Which would you prefer: doing exercise everyday or only when you are free?
I would prefer to do exercise and go to the gym everyday, coz I am really into workout. I usually go there with my friends and jogging, swimming, dancing and weight lifting are all my favorites. Actually work out is not only a way for me to keep healthy, but also to regain my composure and strength after heavy sweating in the gym; however, the truth is I don't have sufficient time to hang around there each day, coz I am really busy, always bombarded with various examinations, papers, presentations, club activities etc; so for me, if I can go there like twice or three times a week, I am already satisfied.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: A university should focus more on its facilities, such as libraries. computers or laboratory. rather than on hiring famous teachers
Nowadays, in order to enhance the popularity of the universities, universities would like choose to hire more professors Whether this measure is more effective compared with upgrading campus facilities has drawn a wide attention. As far as I am concerned, focusing more on university's facilities is more important, though hiring famous professors is necessary.
Admittedly, hiring famous professors may have certain benefits. Famous professors usually have more comprehensive and deeper understandings within professional areas, which provides students with introductory backgrounds and specific contents to figure out the theories in textbooks. However, if viewed from a different angle, it also means students have too much to digest. Students might be intimidated by too much reading materials or abysmal jargons and fell reluctant to study. In this case, cultivating students' interests by experiments and other facilities could better improve students' academic performance.
Initially, improvement in facilities can serve as a catalyst for increasing students' interests. That is to say, advanced facilities make rigid knowledge vivid for students to understand. For example, for engineering students, it is usually the case that the professor will bring students to the laboratory to demonstrate how the theories in books could be transformed into real circuit schematics. Likewise, professors in filming could use softwares, such as Final Cut, iMovies, or so, to direct students how to combine several static pictures into one moving video. Thanks to these teaching facilities, there is a higher chance that students could be impressed by the real demonstrations of experiments or softwares, luring them to act themselves. On the contrary, famous professors might be leading experts in academics, but that does not necessarily ensure that their opinions could be fully delivered to students, which plays little roles for students' s learning.
Additionally, improvement in facilities could enrich students' campus life. In other words, facilities like gymnasiums, libraries or even food courts could be a complement to academic life. By going to gymnasiums after classes, students are eligible to weightlifting, playing squash, climbing and even basketball, dragging them out of study loads. By going to libraries, students could not only find reference books for their class, but, more importantly, they could browse books outside their major according to individual's interests, such as Jane Austen and Sherlock Holmes. By going to the food court during classes, students are offered by various gourmet food, especially, Spaghetti, Sushi and fried rice, providing students with a healthy and exciting lifestyle.
To sum up, due to the reasons I list above, I would regard that upgrading university facilities deserves more more focus than hiring famous professors.
