City Problems Nowadays, millions of migrant workers flock into cities in search of jobs and better living. However, with the sharp rise in the urban population, many problems arise in the development of cities.

Firstly, cities become more and more crowded, putting much pressure upon transportation, housing, sanitation, education, employment and so on. City services and facilities have been strained to a breaking point. Secondly, a growing number of private cars emit huge amount of carbon dioxide, leaving the air mercilessly polluted. What is more, the city is also threatened by rising crime. Not a single day passes without the report of someone being robbed, kidnapped or murdered.


Last but not least, city-dwellers are not only separated from the natural world but also isolated from each other, even not knowing the name of their next-door neighbor.

All these problems have harmed the attractiveness of the city. Unless there is some improvement, more and more people may seek to live in the suburbs.



2. 面对“假日经济”的热潮,人们态度各异

3. 在我看来…


Holiday Economy

Holiday economy is not new to people all around the world. In China, it stands for the nationwide one-week holiday starting from October 1st (the National Day).The government established the week-long holiday back in 1999 to stimulate domestic spending.Tour operators, retailers, and wedding halls have been cashing in ever since.


However, there are shifting perspectives about holiday economy. Many people,including some economists,think positively about holiday economy.They believe that tourism-based holiday economy has increased consumption and helped to spur the domestic demands.While others,who worry about the negative effect of holiday economy,argue that holiday economy do more harm than good.For example,during the extended holiday, scenic spots are overloaded with tourists,and it not only spoils the relaxing mood of the tourists,but also overburdens the tourist attractions.


In my opinion, both sides are reasonable.We should take good advantages of the holiday to develop economy while trying to tackle the problems existed with practical measures.Only in this way can we not only enjoy the pleasure golden week endows us,but also promote the development of holiday economy soundly.


My Closest Friend in University

In choosing a friend, one should be very careful. A good friend is as valuable as a precious stone. He can help you study. You can have fun together and she is a genius in understanding and tolerant others, and as a friend, she is honest and reliable.

Above all else, I look for understanding in a friend. As good friend, she always understands what another person is feeling. She is not quick to judge, instead, she tries to think of ways to be helpful. Further more, she is also a good listener. Of course, I m one of the others .

At the same time, however, she is a honest friend. She doesn t look for faults in me. But she does not ignore them either, she once said to me that she would rather focus on my good points. In short, she can understand me and accept me mostly.

As a good friend, she is also reliable. I can always depend on her, especially during the days when I prepared for my graduate acceptance test last year. And, if she tells me somewhere at a certain tine, I can be sure she well be there. If I need a favor she ll do her best to help me. If I am in trouble, she ll not desert me.


So when you meet someone who is reliable, honest, and understanding, I ll tell you that you have found a good friend.






Nowadays, with the rapid development of our society, almost all the graduates have to face a choice: to get a job first or to find the job you like first? As far as I am concerned, the graduates should get a job first and then choose the job they like。 The reasons can be listed as follows:

First of all, for many students, even they themselves don’t know what kind of job they want to choose。 For these students, to get a job first can help them find out their favorite job through trying different work。 What’s more, the graduates are all under great employment pressure。 There are thousands of graduates need to find their jobs every year。 So if the graduates don’t get their jobs as soon as they leave the school, they will miss the best chance to get a job。 Last but not least, one can accumulate experience and broaden horizons in his or her first job。 It’s certain that these experiences will contribute to future job。 As the famous saying goes “One should apply theory to practice。”, students should apply what they have learned in class to their jobs, thus enhancing their working skills。


Above all, nowadays under the greater employment pressure, the graduates should get a job first and then to choose the job they like。 Since students can have a better understanding of what they like and gain experience in the first job。

The Most Impressive Course in My College

When it comes to a course that leaves the deepest impression in university, different people stand on different grounds. As for me, the most impressive course in college is “Appreciation of English Movies”, which I like best. I prefer this curriculum to others owing to the following factors.

On one hand, the professor in charge of this course has impressed me most because she is not only knowledgeable but also patient. More importantly, it is this respectable teacher who spurs my interest to English harder and broadens my horizon as well. Until now, what she said in the class often occurs to my mind. On the other hand, there are many discussions in the classroom when we have lessons. We are allowed to talk freely about a movie, the topic ranging from the theme of a film to its casting. So, during the talk, we become increasingly open-minded. And undoubtedly a brain open to everything carries great importance to study, work and life.


Generally speaking, the course on appreciating English films has impressed me most for it is not only instructive but also entertaining. And therefore, I suggest that more similar courses should be offered in the university.





1、Many people insist that... 很多人(坚持)认为……


2、With the development of science and technology, more and more people believe that... 随着科技的发展,越来越多的人认为……


3、A lot of people seem to think that... 很多人似乎认为……

"think"终于闪亮登场,但"seem to"为整个句子增添了点婉转之感,这种客观的方式貌似较受老外(尤其腐国人)喜爱。


1、People's views on... vary from person to person. Some hold that... . However, others believe that.... 人们对……的观点因人而异。有些人认为.....然而其他人却认为……

1、Taking all these factors into consideration, we naturally come to the conclusion that... 把所有这些因素加以考虑,我们自然会得出结论……

很完全的答法,"take sth into consideration"短语的应用,加分。

2、Taking into account all these factors, we may reasonably come to the conclusion that... 考虑所有这些因素,我们可能会得出合理的结论……

"Take into account sth"短语似乎又比上句的"take sth into consideration"提升了一个层次。

3、Hence/Therefore, we'd better come to the conclusion that... 因此,自然我们得出以下结论......"Hence"一词用在文章中大气吧,但别平时口语中用,否则即使老外也用一种看老古董的眼神看你......

再特意提一句:"we'd better"在这里不是“不得不”或“最好”的意思,而是一种自然而然,水到渠成的得出结论。

4、There is no doubt that (job-hopping) has its drawbacks as well as merits. 毫无疑问,跳槽有优点也有缺点。

短语"there is no doubt that"上线,同时运用我们的老朋友"as well as"增加看点。

5、All in all, we cannot live without... But at the same time we must try to find out new ways to cope with the problems that would arise. 总之,我们没有……是无法生活的。但同时,我们必须寻求新的解决办法来对付可能出现的新问题。



1、It is high time that we put an end to the (trend). 该是我们停止这一趋势的时候了。

"It is high time" 打头,为该句增色。注:that 后跟虚拟语气,后跟动词的一般过去式,表示“是某人做……的时候了”或者“是某人不做……的时候了”

2、It is time to take the advice of ... and to put special emphasis on the improvement of ... 该是采纳……的建议,并对……的进展给予非常重视的时候了。

去掉一个"high",画风完全不一样,不用过去式,只需用"to do"来替代。

3、There is no doubt that enough concern must be paid to the problem of ... 毫无疑问,对……问题应予以足够的重视。

"there is no doubt that"+被动还是蛮经典的组合。

这句有些老生常谈,稍微不“常”的就是"essential" 替代了"important"。

5、Only in this way can we... 只有这样,我们才能...


6、It must be realized that... 我们必须意识到...

把人人都会的"I realized"升格为被动语态,省略了主语,监考老师绝对会眼前一亮的!


1、Obviously, if we don't control the problem, the chances are that... will lead us in danger. 很明显,如果我们不能控制这一问题,很有可能我们会陷入危险。

"the chances are that"替代了"may",果然说话拐弯的生物不止是中国人。

3、It is urgent that immediate measures should be taken to stop the situation. 应立即采取措施阻止这一事态的发展。
