12月13日托福口语Task1 – If your parents accidentally won a large amount of money, what do you think should be done with it?
Well first, I come from a quite average family. If we suddenly have a lot of money, I think first, some of it should be spent on upgrading our life insurances. Because no matter how rich a person is, it’s never wrong to save for a rainy day. Second, I have a young brother. Two sons can be great pressure for a normal couple in China. So if it’s possible, a great part of the money should be spent to invest in real estate. And finally, to speak for myself, I wish some of the money can be used for my further education in US. I’m a good student and have great plans, I would be thrilled if that money could release part of the economical burden already set on my parents.
12月13日托福口语Task2 – Do you think college students should choose their majors soon as they are admitted, or should they choose majors in their second or third year in college?
I think college students should make their major choices in the second or third year. My reasons are as follows. First, when young people graduate from high school, what they have got is only basic knowledge in whatever fields. Few of them know what their real interests and strong suits are. With one to two year in college however, they get to have the basic idea of higher education. Besides, aside from class and instructors, they get to know sophomores, juniors and seniors in college. With real conversation and survey, they will know whether they are being too ideal or too cautious choosing future academic fields.
Task1 –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?
I would suggest him to join all kinds of social activities and do volunteer jobs. For starters, he can enroll some social clubs like sports club, debating club and art club. In this way, he can get the chance to meet more people with the same interest and interact with them. You know, one has so much to talk about when meeting someone shares the same hobby. Additionally, he can gets involved in some volunteer works like tutoring, planting trees or cleaning the campus. It’s also a good way to make friends with people of different backgrounds and if he is lucky, he might come across people who are from the same place of him.
Task2 –Some people think scientist can decide which field to research based on their own interest, while others think they should study the field that the public concerns the most. Please state your opinion and explain why?
I believe scientists should devote themselves in doing research in the field attract most of the public concerns. To my point of view, as a scientist, the main responsibility is addressing the society’s need and facilitating people’s lives, especially those urgent aspects like medical care, living environment and investing new resources. For example, no one can deny that we’re facing ecological crisis since there are so many environmental problem threating our lives such as global warming, acid rain and ozone layer. Thus, scientist should do something to change the situation like investing clear resources that create little harmful carbon dioxide to the air to replace the traditional ones. With the help of them, we can better protect our planet and guarantee sustainable development.
