And i believe its advantages will not only offset its disadvantages, but also far outweigh them.
The importance of extracurricular activities
College is a place to raise all-round intellectuals, which means that life on campus should consist of diverse activities rather than mere academic studies; and that’s why extracurricular activities become important.
For one thing, extracurricular activities can provide students with real-life experience in decision-making and problem-solving, through which some specific knowledge or skills are required. For example, the development of leadership skills occurs as students assume ownership for the success of their organization. Such experience will help them more about themselves and point the way to their future career. For another, participation in extracurricular activities will enable students to develop a balance between academic accomplishments and social development. This necessary balance will greatly aid each student to more successfully encounter the challenges of our contemporary society. Moreover, participating in extracurricular activities could also boost students’ development of interpersonal relationship. The awareness of responsibility, cooperation and punctuality, are fostered as each student interacts with other members of their group.
In short, extracurricular activities are vital because they could help students explore their interests and talents, teach them to manage their time and know their limits, as well as fit them in with other students.
熱點話題一：三孩政策（three-child policy ）
熱點話題三：無現金社會（a cashless society）
For students who first step into an unknown country, they are confronted with multiple unexpected challenges, which， to some extent, may make or break them. So it is essential to be aware of the challenges.
There are two major challenges for those students to study abroad. For one thing, language proficiency would be a stumbling stone on the way to fit into the new environment. It is a basic skill that students should be equipped to meet the demand of study and life overseas. If they cannot communicate with other international students and faculties, their campus life would be in difficulty. For another, safety is an essential factor that would possibly pose challenge to students alone in a strange country. Thus, the awareness of safety should be improved
All in all, from what has been discussed above, the two major challenges are common for students studying abroad. The awareness of the potential problems and proper adjustment to fit into the campus life abroad is necessary for all of students.
Students' mental health has been playing an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life. Indeed, it is widely accepted that it has gained growing popularity among persons in all walks of life. There is a general discussion today about the issue of disorder in brains.
Obviously, it is necessary that effective actions should be taken to prevent problems. Authorities in universities play a critical role in the situation. To begin with, schools, such as colleges or universities, can provide chances for the young men to ease their attention. What's more, some are physically strong, but psychological problems are able to bring potential threats. Teaches may have a chance to find them in advance. Besides, specialists in this field are to be required to make full preparation for cases in time. Facing the crisis, experts can deal with it in a professional way, which means they have more or better opportunities to save us than others. (學校)
From the factors mentioned above, we may safely draw the conclusion that we can free ourselves from mental illness by taking certain precautions. For example, if you have pains or puzzles in mind, finding a friend to express these is a good way to release pressure. Certainly, there is little doubt that further attention will be paid to the issue.
Should private car owners be taxed for pollution?私家車主是否應交污染稅?
With the development of society, many people can afford a car. As the number of the cars is rising, we are facing some problems. One big problem is the pollution caused by the use of cars. In order to solve this problem, government agencies in some big cities recently suggest that a “pollution tax” should be put on private cars in order to control the number of cars and reduce pollution in the city. For my part, I agree to this viewpoint, and my reasons are as follows:
To begin with, cars contribute to the environmental pollution. For example, a lot of big cities in China are now plagued by serious air pollution. Then it is the responsibility of these private car owners to pay for the pollution and they should be taxed. The purpose of collecting environmental pollution tax is to raise the fund, and then utilize the tax revenue lever to protect our environment.
Secondly, it is a good way to raise people’s environmental awareness by putting a pollution tax on private cars. If people suffer from the financial loss when making a decision, they will think more about their decision. Then they will consider more when deciding to buy a private car. Consequently, the increase rate of the number of the private cars can be controlled.
In a word, it is a very good and necessary attempt to use the means of taxation to treat the pollution. Of course, it must be kept in mind that all people, including the private car owners, should try their best to protect the environment.
傳統的價值觀(Traditional moral values)
there's so much for me to talk about in terms of traditions of family and community as a chinese. confucius alone gave us much food for thought which is still being advocated but hardly practiced today. for example, 'self-cultivation, regulating the family, managing the nation, and establishing peace all over the world', a standard conduct of the chinese society for thousands of years, is eclipsed by individual thirst to glean more fortune.
how one's own fortune goes curtainly prevail over how a nation's does. in china the ammount of bribe money is astonishingly large and the number of corrupt officials which have been brought to the justice is not as large as those who are not yet. why do these civil servants risk their fame and even lives in defiance of law? greed and selfishness account for it. corrupton among public service is but a drop in the ocean when it comes to the demise of the morality. as i walked around the downtown the other day, i found people, with their fancy clothes and stylish hairdos ,appear too materialistic,which is not to my liking. wasn't there a time when things were simpler and people were more humble?once bogged down in private interest, one finds oneself blinded by the greed and selfishness.
advocating the traditional moral values about family and community is definitely necessary. actually it has adopted by the chinese government as a key policy
to run the coounty by combining the rule of law with the rule of virtue ,which is the essence of confucianism. i know modernization is necessary for advancement .however ,i hope we will forget the traditional moral values along the way.
The Best Way to Stay Health
Nowadays，the desire for good health is universal. Wherever you are and whatever you do, staying healthy is always important. With the improvement of our living standards, people are attaching more and more importance to their health. However, which do you think is the best way to keep healthy? Different people come up with different views: eating green food, doing outdoor exercises or going to hospital for medical treatment frequently. As far as I am concerned, the best way to keep healthy is to develop a good quality of psychology.
According to some surveys, nowadays, most patients are not physically sick but mentally ill. The burden on their shoulders is much heavier than others, so they can't step out of the shadow of depression and sadness. They need to release their spirit to the nature.
Besides, if you have developed a good quality of psychology, you’ll become more sociable and thus more willing to play your part in the society. Enrolling for some keep-fit clubs or joining some travel agency, which by themselves are various versions of physical exercise, will benefit you a lot.
As a poem says, youth is not a period of time; it’s a state of mind. Everybody wants to keep young at heart because youth is a symbol for endless energy and passion for living. Keep a good quality of mind, or keep a sense of humor, to be precise, even if you are 80, and you’ll never be old.
本次英語四級寫作模塊相較于2018年6月題目，難度相當。題材涉及生活在大城市的挑戰，為當下熱點話題，可借用課上講過的模板句，例如We might inevitably be exposed to unexpected challenges, which would be a huge burden and harm to both our physical and mental health.
For those who first live in a big city, they are confronted with multiple unexpected challenges, which, to some extent, may make or break them. So it is essential to be aware of the challenges.
There are two major challenges for them. For one thing, the fast pace of social and professional life would be a hard bone to chew. It would become a struggle and terrible experience, if they cannot get used to the pace of life and work in big cities. For another, how to build a social network in big cities would be also a difficulty for those who want to start a new life in big cities. Without a social network, they would not have the sense of belonging.
All in all, from what has been discussed above, the two major challenges are common for people struggling in big cities. The awareness of the potential problems and proper adjustment is necessary for all people going to big cities.
Punctuality Is an Important Virtue
To be or not to be punctual is a habit. We often fail to appreciate the influence of habits in our life. The habitual practice of being late is often due to a lack of concern of being on time. In my opinion, being punctual is an important virtue for all of us.
Punctuality is essential for people from all walks of life. For students, it is a great you are punctual, you leave a good impression on the teachers and classmates who may offer tremendous help in teamwork. In hospitals, punctuality can make all the difference between life and death. On the contrary, an unpunctual person generally causes inconvenience to person who is always late shows selfishness and thoughtlessness, and he is not a person that most people want for a friend. Furthermore, just as Thomas C. Haliburton said, ^v^Punctuality is the soul of business.^v^ Lateness is a sign of poor time management skills. When you are late for appointments, meetings or work, you show a lack of respect for other people's time as well as your own. If you want to be a successful businessman, being punctual is particularly important. Failing to arrive on time causes much inconvenience to the business and also to the rest of the staff. The failure to keep up an engagement punctually may mean a setback for the business.
To sum ups, punctuality being so important in life, it is necessary for everybody to cultivate this habit froth the very beginning.(252 words)
Choosing an Occupation
One of the most important problems a young person faces is deciding what to do. There are some people, of course, who from the time they are six years old xxxknowxxx that they want to be doctors or pilots or fire fighters, but the majority of us do not get around to making a decision about an occupation or career until somebody or something forces us to face the problem.
Choosing an occupation takes time, and there are a lot of things you have to think about as you try to decide what you would like to do. You may find that you will have to take special courses to qualify for a particular kind of work, or you may find out that you will need to get actual work experience to gain enough knowledge to qualify for a particular job.
Fortunately, there are a lot of people you can turn to for advice and help in making your decision. At most schools, there are teachers who are professionally qualified to give you detailed information about job qualifications. And you can talk over your ideas with family members and friends who are always ready to listen and to offer suggestions.
Conservationists, Please Wake up
With globalization and industrialization increasing in recently years, more and more farmland and forests are being destroyed in the name of modernization. As a result, a couple of wild animals were killed or driven out of their original habitat. Tribal people who are in a peaceful life gradually lose their own lands. Survival’s Director Stephen Cory put forward his point of view about what conservationist should do. I agree with him.
First, tribal people’s rights have to be acknowledged and respected. The conservationists must make it clear that they come to protect the environment rather than destroy it. They are supposed to respect tribal people, including their original habitat, culture and their lifestyles. As a matter of fact, they are not leaders but conservationists.
Second, conservationists have to be treated as the best exports at defending their own people is an important part of the nature, and they know a lot about nature. Conservationists must realize it is they who are junior partners.
To sum up,only in this way can the situation of conservationists be improved.
Should College Students Hire Cleaners?
It was recently reported that a few college students hired a help to do some cleaning in their dorm. These students attribute this behavior to their limited spare time. They claim that it can help them to save time and pay more attention to their studies. As far as I am concerned, such a chain of reasoning is seriously flawed, and they are just making an excuse for their laziness. College students should not hire a help for their dormitory cleaning.
To begin with, it is not necessary for college students to hire a cleaner. As boarding-school students living in tiny dorms, we don’t have much cleaning to do at all. What we need to do every day is just washing or some basic cleaning, which we learned to do in childhood. Undoubtedly we can manage them ourselves. In addition, cleaning up a dorm won’t take much time. Conversely, it may help us to divert our attention away from studies and reduce our pressure. As a result, we don’t need to hire a cleaner to keep our dorms clean.
A more important reason why university students should not hire a cleaner is that university education involves both knowledge learning and character building. In the university we should try our best to be more independent and self-reliant. Otherwise, we cannot shoulder greater responsibility when we step into the society. If now we still rely on cleaners for dorm sanitation, how can we earn our own living in the future? Consequently, the most basic thing we should do now is to take care of ourselves and prepare for our future, instead of evading responsibility by hiring a help.
In summary, college students should learn to stand on their own feet. Hiring a cleaner is definitely not a wise choice.
