5 1. Universities and colleges are now offering qualifications through distance learning from the Internet rather than teachers in the classroom. Do you think the advantages of this development outweigh the disadvantages? AdvantageDisadvantage convenience - anywhere - anytime - as many times as possible education resources - teacher - teaching materials lack of interaction - classroom discussion - problem solving lack of supervision - exercise after class lack of equipment - esp. in poor areas

6 1) I am in utter favor of the project conducted by universities that offers qualifications through online learning other than tranditional classroom learning. Through my point of view, though there has long been controversy over this topic concerning its pros and cons, actually there is not any absolute disadvantages but only difficulties waitting to be overcome, and the advantages the project can bring to us are tremendous. 2) To start with the advantages of the project, first of all, online learning is a method far more flexible than tranditional classroom learning. As necessary in modern life for people to fit studies into their tight schedules, flexiblity could lead more people to take part in higher education. The second benefit is convenience, not only for the students but also for the teachers. Both sides can save time and energy consumption on commuting since they can all participate in classes at home. Then finally comes cost saving, the favorite in the eyes of every finance-orientated person. Because for online studying almost everything can be electrical, we can save costs on books, pens, classroom buildings, etc., a fact which can even contribute to environment protection. Sample 1

7 3) As heading to the side of the disadvantages of the project, the first happens to be the difficulty some people would experience when adapting to the style of distance learning especially from classroom learning, including time management and technical challenge. These abilities are all acquirable through practice and learning, so it is not an untacklable obstacle. Another con widely concerned is the lack of connection between participants. However, studying online dose not mean leaving social life and offering diplomas for distance learning does not mean abandoning classroom. Distance learning is an alternative with abundant benefits and it does not have to be the replacement of tranditional classroom. Using which way to study is one's personal choice and the combination of these two methods is also an availible option. 4) To sum up, offering qualifications through distance learning is a rather beneficial alternative which deserves our appreciation. Its pros clearly outweight its cons which are actually just some challenges that can be conqured.

9 1 ) As the Information Era is coming along with the development of the Internet, long-distance education becomes more and more popular. Many people in different jobs from various areas learn the same course on the Internet. According to some professors from world-class universities who share their courses in the Internet, some of the long-distance students even do better than the students in their classroom. So it gives me no reason to neglect that offering qualifications through distance learning has more advantages than the disadvantages. 2 ) At first, it makes the most of the rare education resources. For example, students from thousands miles away can take the excellent business courses in the Harvard university. As long as the students meet with the requirements of the courses, they have the rights to be offered the qualifications. In this way, the on-line education model takes the advantage of the top-class education resources in the world and shares them with the whole world. 3 ) Additionally, it improves the equality of the education, which is the main purpose of the education. From all over the world, students with the Internet can enjoy the world-class education from masters as long as they have the willing to learn. We must admit that the high technology helps to improve the equality of the education. If the universities and colleges offer qualifications for the students who learn in this way, they make efforts to the education equality. Sample 2

10 4 ) As for the professors, they also appreciate this education model very well. An interview of the professor from Tsing Hua University presents that he would rather record his courses on the Internet because he can teach the courses once and save a lot of time to prepare for more outstanding classes. The learning through the Internet is also a good way to protect the professors' time. What's more, the professor emphases that he has more students on the Internet who not only learn from him but also give him a lot of good suggestions. In this way, he can improve his teaching methods in a great step. 5 ) Although someone may point out that the communication between teachers and students on the Internet may be worse than that in the classroom, we believe the development of technology can help to solve this problem through messages and other ways on line. 6 ) To sum up, the development of education is a well-worth try. So I believe it has more advantages than disadvantages. 优化建议: ( 1 )精简、合并相似段落 ( 2 )简化过长的句子,使表述更简洁明晰

11 2. The qualities that a person needs to become truly successful cannot be learned at university or in a similar educational institution. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? Can we learn the qualities for future success at university or not? Qualities for success: · knowledge & skills for work · interpersonal skills Structure: 1. Introduction 2. Body: a. Qualities that can be learnt at universities b. Qualities that universities cannot provide 3. Conclusion

12 3. Some people think adults should learn practical skills by themselves, while others think they should learn from teachers. Discuss both views and give your own opinion. Learn from experience √ leave deep impression × risks × wasting time and energy Learn from teachers √ usually correct √ efficiency × lack understanding My opinion

13 4. People learn things better from those at their own level – such as fellow students or co-workers – than from those at a higher level, such as teachers or supervisors. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? 1) Personally, I believe that people learn things from those who have a higher level better than persons who have the same level with them. There are two reasons below. Let me take the second language study as an example to explain my opinion. 2) Firstly, people who are at the same level as the learner could be a good cooperator but never be a good teacher. Nowadays, with the rapid formation of the globalism, a mount of people involved themselves to study different languages. A big part of them began to find the exchange language partners in order to save money. [For instance, there are millions users in the italki.com website, which is one of the biggest exchange language study websites in China. ] However, the fact was that even though they could make a lot of friends from different countries, their language level did not improve a lot due to lack of a systemic language study. So it proved that there were only limited effects if the same level persons helped each other learn something.

14 3) Secondly, people who have a higher level than the learner, such as teachers, definitely are knowledgeable, erudite and methodological. [As we all knew that the meaning of language is never only useful, but also a way of cultural expression. As long as we learn a foreign language, we essentially need to study the culture of that language.] Moreover, the methods of teaching are also very important. Therefore, a professional teacher who has a higher level than the learner is necessary. For example, almost students have the vocabulary's problem when they study a second language. Only professional teachers can teach them the roots of words, and more and more evidences exhibited that it was the best way to increase our vocabularies. Additionally, we may know the reason why an aquatic animal which has eight legs named "octopus" was "octo-" means "eight". But why "October" is the tenth month of a year? None of English language major students could answer this question. The reason I learned it from a famous professor who are interested in both English language and classic language is that actually "October" was the eighth month in the old Roman calendar. 4) Consequently, if you want to find a person who just can company and encourage you when you study, you can find one at your own level. However, if you want to learn something new and deeper knowledge, the person who has a higher level than you is your best choice.

15 Revised version Secondly, people who have a higher level than the learner are more knowledgeable and more skillful in teaching. Experienced teachers know how to help students learn most effectively. For example, when I had trouble remembering English words, my teacher taught me to remember words according to their roots, which is the best way to increase our vocabulary. Additionally, teachers can help to solve the problems we encounter. An example is that when I learned the root "octo-", which means "eight" as is in the word "octopus", I could not understand why "October" is the tenth month in the year. None of my classmates knew the answer, but my teacher told me that "October" was the eighth month in the old Roman calendar.

17 Technological development causes a lot of environmental problem. As for the issue, some people think a simple lifestyle can protect environment while others argue that technology itself can solve it. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

18 1 ) There is no deny that nowadays technology is booming as never before, technology has bring a lot of convenience to our daily life. However, at the same time,technological development causes a lot of envirnomental problems. As for this issue, different people hold different opinions. Some people think a simple lifestyle can protect environment while others argue that technology itself can solve it. As far as I can see, the two viewpoints stand with reasons to some extent. 2 ) Firstly, imagine this. when technological development make cars much cheapter, most people can afford it, it is not surprising that people will choose to go to outside by car instead of by bike. But thanks to this convenient lifesyle, it has lead to a serious air pollutions in many regions. But if we change this into a simple lifestyle, many environmental problems could be relief. For example, if we go to school or company on foot or by bike, it can reduce a large mount of carbon diaoxide or nitrogen dioxide emissions. If we go shopping with our own bags instead of using plastic bags, the problem of soil erosion would be improved as plastic material is very difficult to be degraded. There are many little things involving a simple lifestyle. Moreover, this simple lifestyle is really good for our environment.

19 3 ) However, sometimes, environmental problems may be too serious to be solved only by a simple lifestyle, such as global warming, numerous garbage in everywhere. At this time, we should depend on technological power. We can develop clean energys like wind energy or nuclear energy replacing fossil energy, I am convinced that the problem of global warming will be improved greatly though this method. 4 ) As to numerous garbage, we could invent multi-function robots to cope with it. So, technology also plays a very significant role in protecting envirnoment. 5 ) Based on the above discussion and analysis,we can easily see that adapting a simple lifestyle is a good measure to improve our environment. But when it comes to some big environmental problems, technology is a indispensible method. we can't abandon any of them, what's more, we should combine these two methods together. Only in this way can we have a healthy environment for our generation.
