Wechat Conquers the World
Since the policy of Reform and Open in the last century, Chinese economy develops so rapidly. At the same time, the technology catches up with the world. The popular social communicational tool Wechat was created in China, but now it conquers the world and people is crazy about it.
The reason why people like to use Wechat is that the functions are all-sided. Before Wechat, the most popular social communicational tool like facebook though is creative, it has to download another software to better communication. While for Wechat, everything is simple, you don’t need to download another software. What’s more, you can pay and have the webcam with your friends. The comment that your friends give to you is more private, only the common friends can share. As it is so convenient, people say that they can do everything with a smart phone at hand.
Technology changes our life and people’s need promotes the improvement of technology. We use our wisdom and create the new things. We should be proud of us and show to the world that Chinese people are creative.
Which Is More Important
As can be seen from the picture above, there is a conversation between a son and a father. The father told his son that it is more important to empty the dustbin than to worry about disposing of nuclear waste, that is to say, small things go first when dealing with big things. I’m definitely on the father’s side in this and I’m sure I’m not alone.
A case in point is the successful launch of ShenZhou 10 spacecraft, which excites everyone and makes every feel proud of China. Behind this great event there are a host of detailed things, called petty things, conducted by millions of scientists, who have devoted themselves to the mission. It is the petty things that contribute to the success, which reminds us of the significance of small things. We also take ourselves for example. It is acknowledged that before running we must learn to stand and walk building up a solid foundation for running. Although walking is considered as a trifle while running is treated as a great thing, walking is the first step.
As an old saying, One can’t Make a By Success without Bing Self reliant. So we should keep it in our mind that before accomplishing important tasks, perform small tasks. Only in this way can we make the highest eminence.
Present In The Progression
Letting Life Unfold
Our lives are guided by natural rhythms that are particular to each of us and cannot be altered by force of will alone. Life itself is a journey made up of processes and events that manifest before us only to be swept away when time marches on. Whether we envision ourselves creating a career, building a family, or developing the self, we instinctively know when the time has come for us to realize our dreams because all that is involved comes together harmoniously. When the time is right, the passage of destiny cannot be blocked. Yet as desperate as we are to touch these beautiful futures we have imagined, we cannot grow if we are not fully present in the evolutionary experience. The present can be challenging, uncomfortable, and tedious, but life unfolds as it will, and the universe will wait patiently as we make our way into the unknown.
The fate that awaits us is not dependent on our pace, which was preordained before we ever appeared in human guise. Therefore there is no reason to rush through life to reach those pinnacles of development associated with the paths we have chosen. Enjoying and fully experiencing the journey of life is as important as achieving goals and reaching milestones. There are lessons we can learn during those moments that seem immaterial or insignificant that we cannot learn at any other time. Appreciating these takes patience, however, because human beings tend to focus on the fulfillment of expectations rather than the simple joys of being.
Like many people, you have no doubt longed for a device that would give you the power to fast forward through certain periods of your existence. Yet haste is by its very nature vastly more stressful than serene fortitude. When you feel yourself growing impatient because the pace of your development is deceptively slow, remember that everything that will occur in your life will occur in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence"s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying ”The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it away.\" You can cite examples to illustrate your point of view. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
The Meaning and Purpose of Life
Everyone may encounter a scene when he or she wonders what the meaning and purpose of life is. Answers to this question vary from person to person. As for me, I agree with the view that the meaning of life is to discover your gift and the purpose of life is to make the best of it.
On one hand, one’s gift could be the source of his inner happiness, providing spiritual impetus and correct orientation. Take the world-renowned Chinese pianist Lang Lang as an example. His gift was noticed before he was 3 years old, which laid the foundation of his glorious life. On the other hand, proper use of talent helps people to realize their value in a positive way, thus making contribution to the society as a whole. For instance, Isaac Newton made a universally amazing discovery by digging into his gift and finding the Newton’s law of gravitation.
In conclusion, let’s search for our true gift and utilize it to the fullest to achieve a happy and valuable life.
Love in College
As a college student, campus is our home, a warm and sunny house, you can find the vigor to live and sustain for ever. But do remember there is unusual scenery you should pay great attention to, that is the love in the campus. When it comes to this theme, various words rushed into my mind, sweet, happy, love for ever, everything sounds to be wonderful.
However, our elders always exaggerate about love in college. They believe that it is a waste of time and money. It will make students to forget their studies and eventually may even destroy their lives.
As for me, although I am looking forward to having an excellent boy study and live with me, it is just a dream actually.① We are still children, do not have enough experience in love; we do not take in the spirit of true love.② For us it is just a good feeling, a slight feeling because of well-dressed or handsome appearance, not by instinct. How about the personality or her habits, we do not know, we just love because of her beauty. Love depending on this will certainly go not so further, one day, you find you two are unable to share in the same way, you will quit, leaving tears fallen down. It turns out that love in the campus is commonly short and dreamful.
I think after you become mature enough, then you can use your sharp eyes to recognize people, find who you really suit to, then, take it seriously.③
文章结构精巧，论证有力，正反对比加强了论证的效果。段落之间运用了however，as for me 这样的过渡词使文章思路更加清晰，一目了然。certainly, seriously这样的词汇更使作者的态度鲜明确定。文章使用口语体的形式，所以在一些连接词的使用上没有过于遵守语法规则，这一点需要注意。

For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic "Blind Date". You should write at least 120 words following the outline given below in Chinese:
Enjoying popularity across the whole society, blind date is becoming more common and acceptable in China today which appeals to countless people. However, for it, people"s views differ.
According to a recent survey, young people are found quite positive about blind dates. They believe that blind date can help them experience more, make new friends, etc.
Even though most blind dates will not develop into romantic relationship that people search for, it still is an effective way for us to meet more people. However, some people think differently. They argue that people who go for blind date may value materials more than the personality. For instance, a girl may like to date a wealthy guy rather than a poor one.
To sum up, despite the above negative views on blind date, I still think it is a good way for the youngsters to socialize.
作文题目：How to Study Efficiently
As students, we have to study almost every day. However, not everybody knows how to study efficiently.Do you want to know better about it?
There is some relationships between the study efficiency and the hours spent in studying in a day.In fact, more hours of study do not necessarily result in better or higher study efficiency.It is said that the optimum of efficiency comes when one studies about 5 hours and the efficiency begins to drop as he studies longer than it. By the time when one studies 11 hours per day， his efficiency of study becomes very poor.
In conclusion, there is always a maximum of efficiency and an appropriate amount of time for study in a day. More time spent in study doesn’t always mean greater efficiency.
作文题目：Listening is More Important than Talking
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying “Listening is more important than talking.” You can cite examples to illustrate the importance of listening. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
It is quite important to be a good listener.Effective listening is more than simply avoiding the bad habit of interrupting others while they are speaking.It’s being content to listen to the entire thought of someone rather than waiting impatiently for your chance to respond.
Slowing down your responses and becoming a better listener aids you in becoming a more amiable person.As you wait for the person you are communicating with to finish,as you simply listen more intently to what is being said,you will feel more relaxed,and so will the people you are talking to.Not only will being a better listener make you a more patient person,but it will also improve your relationship with others because everyone loves to talk to someone who truly listens to what they are saying.
It is quite easy for you to be a better listener.As long as you for get yourself and imagine yourself in the speaker’s experience to understand the emotion behind the words,and then give your appropriate responses slowly,you will be an endeared listener.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic Extravagant Spending on College Campus. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline below:
Extravagant Spending on College Campus
According to a survey, in recent years the monthly expenditure of a college student has been on the sharp rise. Many college students have no concept of thrift in their mind. They take it for granted that they spend money from their parents before they enter into the society. This extravagant spending is primarily caused by the following factors.
First of all, nowadays most of the students are the only children of their families. They are the apple in their family’s eyes and naturally get more care and pocket money. In addition, with the improvement of living standards, parents can afford higher expenditure of their children. Moreover, some students like to pursue fashion and trends, which tend to need more money. Finally, campus love is also a possible factor causing extravagant spending.
From my point of view, a college student, as a pure consumer, should learn to be thrifty. We should limit our expenditure on daily necessities but not buy whatever we want regardless of their prices. The habit of thrift can help us form right values and is favorable to our future development.
How to Solve the Housing Problem in Big Cities
The shortage of housing in big cities is one of the most serious problems of modern living. Increasing numbers of people are finding it difficult to conduct normal family and work duties because they either have nowhere to live or their houses are inadequate. This is a problem that requires an urgent solution because it leads to social unrest and economic inefficiency.
Some people suggest that the solution to the problem is to build more high-rise apartments, others are in favor of underground housing areas. I prefer the first idea, because it is cheaper to build above ground than below. Besides, people prefer to live in the open air and see the sunshine.
The second idea is not practical. One reason for this is that it is dangerous to construct living places under streets and buildings. Another reason is that it would take too much time to carry out, and in the meantime the number of people waiting for houses would increase, thus making the problem worse.
Advantage and Disadvantages of Being an Only Child
My father used to talk to me about his five siblings. He used to say that I was unfortunate that I had none. And I used to envy him and wonder how nice it would be to have a houseful of brothers and sisters. I also used to wonder what would happen to me if I were to lose my parents. Frankly speaking, I do not have to share anything with anybody. I own all my parents" love. I can ask for anything I want. I always wear new clothes and eat the best food. Since my parents spend all their money on me, I can study at the best university of the country.
Lucky as I am, I now and then feel very lonely and I have nobody to complain about my loneliness. How I long for a quarrel with my brothers and sisters! Of course I have classmates and friends, but they are different. Sometimes I feel so pessimistic that after my parents leave the world, I will have no blood relatives left to share with me the fond memories of my parents. Furthermore, I am likely to become selfish while I realize the world is for sharing.
So, I am happy but lonely; I am fortunate but piteous; I am loved but spoiled; I am well-bred but selfish, because I am the only child of the family.

My View On TV Shopping
Nowadays, with the fast development of mass media networks,
people are experiencing unprecedented convenience of handling daily matters.
TV shopping programs, for example, have made shopping so simple that it has become a fashion and trend that we can hardly resist.
However, everything can be a double-edged sword and TV shopping program is no exception.
TV shopping has its advantages.
Firstly, it is very convenient for consumers to make their purchase without going out and walking wearily from one shop window to another.
Secondly, compared with paper advertisements,
TV shopping programs show us the goods more vividly. When it comes to disadvantages, it seems that we, as consumers, can hear and see what is presented, but stand a narrow chance of knowing for sure what the goods are really like, and sometimes these salesmen just sweet talk us into buying what we do not need or something of poor quality. While making good use of TV shopping programs, we should be rational about what is advertised on TV and spend our money in a reasonable and cost-effective way.
With the modernization of the world, people’s standard of living has improved a lot. Then there appears a state of sub-health among people which poses a new threat to them.
There are some tpical symptoms for people who are in a state of sub-health. First of all, those who suffer from it often have a headache or backache. Secondly, they feel like having a rest frequently. What upsets us most is that, the situation spreading countrywide. As a result, more and more workers in big cities are harassed by it, with a percentage of 75 in Beijing, 72 in Shanghai and 70 in Guangzhou respectively.
Then how can we sovle this problem effectibely? Experts suggest that the best way to keep ourselves thealthy is to do exercises. It is also very important that people should form a good living habit, for example, getting up early and going to sleep early. Only doing so can we keep us healthy.

Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying ”The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take that away from you.“ You can cite examples to illustrate the beauty and features of knowledge. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
The Beauty of Knowledge
Praise of knowledge has never come to an end since ancient times. Apparently, knowledge is a treasure that everybody volunteers to possess and much of success could be attributed to it directly or indirectly.
As far as I am concerned, the beauty of knowledge can be explained in three aspects.
Firstly, knowledge is open to all human beings. People can learn whatever they wish in one way or another. Secondly, knowledge learnt can be reflected in one"s later life, so that one knows how to savor the present moment in peaceful times and how to deal with problems in difficult times. Last but not least, one of the most prominent features of knowledge is that one carries it throughout his life. Even if one loses a large fortune, he will never be a beggar if he already knows how to make money.
To sum up, knowledge is of great importance in one"s lifetime. It is advisable that one should learn the beauty of knowledge and enjoy the process of learning.
Composition for reference Nowadays, one of the most serious problems China is faced with is brain drain. While shortages of talent trouble many universities and state-owned enterprises, millions of talented people either emigrate to developed countries or work for foreign companies. At the same time, a big crowd of well-educated people who are determined to follow their footsteps take TOEFL or GRE as their passport to the West. However, people see this phenomenon in different perspectives. Some hold the opinion that China suffers a lot from brain drain. They argue, on the one hand, that brain drain considerably weakens our international competitiveness. On the other hand, they believe that the talent should serve their native country first. In contrast, others highlight the advantages of international exchange and cooperation. They claim that Chinese youths should go abroad to study and gain more experience. What"s more, the long-term benefits will outweigh losses we suffer now. Brain drain poses a challenge. China should go all out to attract talented people in order to better compete in the world. For one thing, decent living and working conditions should be offered to specialists. For another, we have to better develop our economy, which is a sure bait for all kinds of talent.
Teachers are the shapers of human souls. I still remember how my teachers pulled my through a critical moment. I did a bad job in the first preparation test for the entrance examination and I was considerably depressed. Then my teachers came to my rescue. Patiently, my English teacher analyzed the paper word by word and encouraged me to carry on My Chemistry teacher also gave me a precious gift. He told me not to be obsessed with the test results and encouraged me to find fun in learning. Their help enabled me to survive the competition and will surely benefit me in the future.
Perhaps I’ll never have a chance to repay all that I have received from my teachers. But I’ll try to be a useful person and become their pride

My View on Major Ranking
My View on Major Ranking
In recent years, it is very popular to rankmajors. Major ranking lists based on a variety ofcriteria can be found on some educational websitesor newspapers. These lists have great influence onstudents and many of them have come to rely onthese lists to make their major-choice decisions.
To this phenomenon, people’s opinions vary from each other. Some think that the resultsof the ranking are helpful for high school students to choose a major field of study, e.g., somelists tell people what majors will lead to decent jobs after graduation. Some people, however,believe that many lists are actually useless. Rankings are only about numbers and they do nottell you anything about the distinct nature of the major. Besides, some majors may be listed ashot majors when students enter colleges, but will be unpopular when they graduate.
As far as I’m concerned, we should not over-stress major ranking. It should beremembered that rankings can play a big role in the selection of a major but it should not bethe only criterion. Many factors including your own perception of the major should matter inyour final choice.

The importance of saving money
As far as we are concerned, today most Chinese college students are in favor of the idea of saving money for later use, while quite many others think it is much better to use tomorrow’s money today.
In my opinion, I agree with the former. Firstly, saving money help people get rid of some difficulties such as accidents, disease or other mishaps. As we all know that, when one faces such tragedies as fir damage or fatal disease, one would need a large amount of money to survive such difficulties. Secondly, saving money can give one a sense of satisfaction. Since most people work hard every day, what makes them feel happy and satisfied is that they find they have accumulated a large deposit through their hard-working, and they will go on doing their best to work. Thirdly, saving money allows one to give a helping hand to others who are in need of money. With money available at the moment, one can offer badly needed help to those in temporary difficulty, say, those who are suffering from flood, famine, a car accident, or things like that. Yet taking a loan from a bank is often too costly. Thus, the timely help will be rewarded with gratitude.
All in all, it is useful for college students to save money, and it is also an important aspect of the Chinese conception of virtue.

Generation gap between parents and children

My name is Liming. I am studying at college. A week ago I saw a traffic accident , which is still vivid in my mind.
It was at about 9:00 on Saturday morning, June 15th, when I went out of the university to visit a friend of mine at another university. I was walking leisurely on the sidewalk when I heard a loud crash of two vehicles just at the T-junction about 10 meters away. Two taxis crashed together. It was a traffic accident.
??I went up and found that the two taxis were badly damaged. Both hoofs were out of shape. One door of a car was knocked off and lying on the road. One driver was blooding and another was shut in the taxi. Some people were trying to help the driver get out of the damaged car. One man was calling to the traffic policeman station. A lot of cars were jammed on the road.
From the stopping track on the road, it is clear that the two taxis were driving too fast. But it is just one of the reasons. In my opinion, the taxi drivers are eager to take more passengers and make a little more money. On the other hand, both drivers don"t show concern for one another. Both of them wanted to run in front of another. Therefore, the accident is inevitable. So far, we should let the drivers keep it in their mind that a little slower, a little safer. Taking care of other"s lives means taking care of your own life.
题目：Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay based on the picture below. You should comment on the role of mobile phone in people"s communication. You are required to write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
参考范文:The Role of Mobile Phone in People"s Communication
The popularity of smartphones has exerted great influence on the way people communicate, so much so that an increasing number of individuals contend that face-to-face communication is being replaced by texts and images on the mobile phone.
There are more than one angle to consider this phenomenon. On one hand, it is pleasantly acknowledged that smartphones shorten the distance between families and friends. Even people from different sides of the globe can share pictures, feelings and thoughts through various types of apps on the phone, thus building a long-distance connection. On the other hand, as the picture warns us, too much smartphone addiction interferes with people"s real-life communication. Statistics show that over 70 percent of face-to-face communication consists of facial expressions and body language, which is why people should stay away from mobile phones when they have the chance to actually talk and communicate with others.
In a word, mobile phones act as an appropriate platform where people can always stay in tough however long the distance is, but a wise man should know when to put down his phone.
