  My View on Fake Commodities

  Nowadays fake commodities have flooded almost every inch ofthemarket. Wherever you are, whatever you do, it seems that youcanhardly have fallen prey to them. In other words, it ishighlyprobable that you have bought some of those fake goods orproductsof inferior quality。

  Needless to say, fake commodities have already done great harmtoour society. On the one hand, they will ruin the good reputationofgenuine products and disturb the balance of the market. Ontheother hand, the prevalence of such products hashinderedinterpersonal relationship and resulted in the decline ofpublicmorality. As a consequence, they have wasted exhaustibleresources,endangered people"s precious life and health, and in thelong runeroded public trust。

  Then, what should be done to do away with fake commodities?Tostart with, the government needs to tighten its inspectionprogramand strengthen its enforcement policies. Secondly,honestbusinessmen should modify some long-accepted practices attheprotection of their intellectual property right. Most importantofall, we consumers will have to do a better job of learning howtodistinguish between the genuine and the phoney and definitelysayno to the fake ones. In one word, the coordinated effort ofthewhole society will put an end to fake commodities。

  2.Changes in the Ownership of Houses (2003.6)




  Changes in the Ownership of Houses

  As is shown in the chart, great changes have taken place intheownership of houses in the city. There has been a steady declineinthe percentage of state-owned houses from 75 in 1990 to 20 in2000.On the contrary, the percentage of private houses has been ontherise。

  Several factors may account for the trend. For one thing, owingtothe policy of reform and opening to the outside world, thepastdecade witnessed significant improvement in people"s standardofliving. In other words, they have had the means to purchasehousesof their own. For another, people"s ideas about consumptionhaveundergone some radical changes. In the past, they werereluctant tospend, but now they are willing to buy. Anyway, it ismuch morecomfortable to dwell in a house of one"s own。

  These changes in the ownership have already had a positiveeffecton both individuals and society. Individuals, young peopleinparticular, will be motivated to work harder to purchase a nestoftheir own. As a result, the housing industry will be boostedandmore revenues will be raised to cover other sectors of ournationaleconomy。



  1. Should College Students Live on Campus

  a. 有些人喜欢住在学校的宿舍,因为……

  b. 有些人喜欢住在校外,因为……

  c. 我的看法

  There are an increasing number of students who choose to liveoffcampus. Parents and university administrationsunderstandablyreacted differently. They voiced concerns aboutsecurity and thethreat of off-campus lifestyles getting out ofcontrol. However,college students have their own reasons for theirchoices。

  Some students prefer to live on campus for the followingreasons.First, campus residents are closer to classes, the library,andother resources, so they are more likely to succeed in collegeandcomplete their bachelor"s degree in four years. Furthermore,Livingin a dorm is a great opportunity to meet all kinds of newpeopleand develop relationships with them, so students living oncampusare more sociable. Last but not the least, living on campusischeaper and more convenient. Often times, off-campus housingismore expensive than on-campus housing and while living oncampus,you don"t have to worry about monthly rent payments andutilitybills。

  Some others choose to live off campus because they believelivingoff campus they are more independent, with more privacy and alotmore quiet time. Living off campus gives them freedom fromthosedorm rules and allow them to set their own. The extra spacealsomeans that one can probably find a quiet place to study intheconvenience of his own home。

  As for me, I"m a faithful supporter of the former group becauseI,living on campus myself, have witnessed and enjoyed alltheconvenience and happiness of doing so. To me, living oncampusundoubtedly adds an important element to the completecollegeexperience。

  2. Pursuit of A Master"s Degree

  a. 根据下图描述某校毕业生毕业意向的变化 b. 分析选择读研的毕业生数目增加的原因

  c. 说明选择读研对个人和社会产生的影响

  The reasons of the increasing number of students pursuingamaster"s degree are as follows. First, with the number ofcollegegraduates growing each year, the situation in the job marketisgetting tighter and tighter. The public awareness of thesituationhas created a surge of interest in seeking a master"sdegree.Secondly, many cross-national companies set a much higherstandardfor new recruits than ever. It seems that the highereducation youhave, the higher salary you may receive。

  Choosing to study for master"s degree will benefit theindividualsand the whole society as well. The quality of Chineseintellectualswill be considerably enhanced, which in turn willboost the progressof the whole society。

  3 Directions: Suppose you are Wei Qiang and you will graduatefromuniversity. Write a letter of inquiry to the Department ofPhysics,University of Wisconsin, asking for admission as agraduatestudent。

  July, 2007

  Dear Sirs,

  I am very interested in undertaking graduate work inyouruniversity. I have read research papers by two of yourprofessorsDr. Thomas Bay and Mr. Sherry Haily. I"d like to studyunder theirguidance。

  In Septr of 2003 I was enrolled in the Computer School of theXYZUniversity as a computer major. Throughout the four years ofstudy,I take this field as one of great potentials for my country.I feelthe need to study further in order to develop well inthisarea。

  I would appreciate receiving your materials such asdepartmentalbrochure or pamphlet, and a university catalog orbulletin。

  Thank you for your consideration. I am looking forward toyourreply。

  Respectfully yours,

  Wei Qiang

  4. Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes towritean essay entitled Say “Thank You” to Parents. You should writeatleast 150 words following the outline given below in Chinese:

  1. 很多的大学生从未跟父母道过谢 2. 请说明原因 3. 你的建议

  According to a recent survey involving over 3000undergraduates,35% of university students have never said “Thankyou” to theirparents. Their parents have done all they could tobring them up inthe past score of years, but have never beenrewarded withgratitude。

  The subjects claim such reasons as follows. First and foremost,aquarter of the interviewed students regard it as parents" dutytosupport them spiritually and financially. And it is notnecessaryto express appreciation to their parents. However, themajority ofyoungsters are aware of their parents" tender love butare notaccustomed to saying “Thank you”. Some even find ageneration gapbetween themselves and their parents, thus feelingreluctant toexpress their affection for their parents。

  In my opinion, extending thankfulness to our parents is a wayofrespecting them and their love. We should express ourfeelingsdirectly and bravely, but what"s more important is, weshould doall that we can to reward them。

  l Fire Prevention on Campus

  People are alarmed by the succession of campus fires inrecentyears. In each of these accidents, heavy casualties werereported –houses were burned down, students lost their lives, andpropertieswere damaged. Faced with such a chilling fact, peoplekeep asking,“What on earth results in these repeatedtragedies?”

  A brief survey of them reveals that human factors still provetobe the leading causes. For example, three of these fireswerecaused by the students" use of electric water-heaters. Asstudentsoften leave the heaters unattended, the risks are ratherhighshould the water in the bottle boil dry while no one is aroundtoturn off the power. In other cases, fires were also causedbystoves, candles, cigarette butts, etc。

  Since most of these disasters could have been prevented ifproperprecautions had been taken, students should be bettereducated onthe importance and measures of fire control. Thefollowing threereminders are of particular importance for usstudents: First,learn how to use a fire extinguisher. Second,double-check candles,heaters, stoves and other electric appliances,and make sure thereare no open flames before leaving rooms. Lastly,do not smoke inthe dorm.

  3. 学生如何加强防盗意识



  l Enhance Awareness to Guard against Campus Thefts

  “If you don"t want to wake up and find you have no pants towear,you"d better put them on in sleep,” goes a popular jokeamongstudents. Obviously, campus thefts have becomeincreasinglyannoying as they occur far more often than before. Andit seemsthat the thieves are less choosy these days, with theirtargetsranging widely from bikes, cell phones, purses, pre-paid ICcardsto sunglasses, bags, and even underwear. In short, anythingthatworth a dime is likely to be stolen。

  What makes students the easy targets? The reasons are not hardtofind. But I believe of all these reasons, the lack ofanti-theftalertness is the most important. For lack of alertness,thestudents tend to leave the doors and windows wide open duringsleepat noon or at night in summer. For the same reason, they"llalsoleave their bikes unlocked before a store or by a road, orforgetto take away their personal stuff before they go out oftheclassroom to make a phone call. These acts undoubtedlyhaveincreased their exposure to the light-fingered monsters。

  In order to minimize possible losses, the students must stayonguard in the first place, as awareness of the thefts aroundoftenmakes a big difference. To be more specific, the studentsshouldnot hide any tempting amount of cash in the dorm. Put it inthebank instead. Besides, do not leave any valuable itemsunattended.Take them wherever you go. In addition, it"s advisableto develop aneighbourhood watch programme with other students inthe dorm andneighbouring dorms。

  l How Will Our Life Go on without Internet?

  If asked whether the Internet is the greatest discovery ofthe20th century, my answer would be yes. The Internet has drawntheworld closer together, realized countless incredible dreams,andprovided modern people with a great many conveniences andabrilliant life。

  Today, many people simply feel they cannot live withouttheInternet. Governments publish their latest policies anddecisionsonline for worldwide recognition. Political campaigns areoftendone online to gain wider public support. Companies andenterprisesresort to the Internet for more business opportunitiesandpotential customers home and abroad. Universities andresearchersturn to the Internet if they"d seek internationalcooperation orfunding. Common folks like us also rely on the cyberworld invarious ways, for communication, entertainment, bankingandshopping。

  True, the power of the Internet is all pervasive and itsmanynegative effects are already visible. For example, Internetaddictstend to withdraw to their own fantasy world rather thancommunicatewith a real person. Children are exposed to onlinepornography andviolence. Internet frauds are an everydayoccurrence. In view ofall this, you are advised to use the Internetwith wisdom. Keep itat a safe distance and never lose yourself。




  has drawn…, realized, and provided此为谓语连动式的运用。

  As a primary source of information as well as an efficientmeansof communication, the Internet offers people a colourfulandconvenient life. Just by clicking the mouse, we can enjoyabrilliant and easy life that could not be achieved everbefore:shopping, making friends, contacting relatives, looking forjobs,downloading music and movies, conducting business deals, andfreelyairing our opinions。

  For its convenience, the Internet has attracted peoplelikemagnets and some people even claim that it is indispensable.Tothem, life can"t go on without it. Every day millions ofpeoplespend hours on end surfing the Internet. They are obsessedwith itso much so that they forget many other importantmatters。

  As for me, I don"t approve of unrestrained Internetreliance.Although the Internet is a gift of the technologicalrevolution anda blessing of this information age, we should neverlet it controlour life. The Internet absolutely doesn"t mean thewhole world tous. Instead, we should guard against its negativeeffects. To thoseInternet addicts, I would add: “Self-control canmake or break yourlife. With proper use, the Internet serves you;otherwise, it killsyou。”

  l Craze for Civil Service Examinations

  Every year hundreds of thousands of people in China takecivilservice exams conducted at various levels in the hope ofbecominggovernment employees. Among them, college graduates areafast-growing force that can"t be ignored. The craze for beingacivil servant is not limited to liberal arts majors, as it"salsogaining popularity among science and engineering students。

  In the final analysis, this growing trend among the youngstersismainly attributable to two factors – ambitions and comforts. Ontheone hand, many ambitious college graduates view these exams asaspringboard to a higher social status, greater power andprestige,on which many of their other wishes rest. On the other, asbeing acivil servant generally means a stable income, enviablehealthcareand pension programmes, as well as other comforts oflife, it"squite an appealing career option to many people,especially in thisage of sluggish world economy。

  Personally, the desire to be a government official isbeyondreproach, as the nation and the people do need an injectionof newblood into the civil service sectors. The fresh-facedcollegegraduates, armed with lofty ideals, new vision, and strongdrive,are undoubtedly among the best candidates.

  3. 你的观点





  l Is it Necessary to Attend Training Classes?

  All across the country a great diversity of custom-madeclassesare mushrooming, in which special training is providedconcerningcomputer skills, arts, sports, and otherextracurricularspecialties like maths and writing. Among themlanguage crashcourses for various tests, such as CET, BEC, TOFEL,IELTS, GRE andso forth, are especially noticeable for its widerange and highattendance rate。

  Some consider it advisable to attend such classes whileothersbelieve it unnecessary. The former argues that it"s farmoreeffective to command these special skills with the help ofanexperienced trainer than to work at them on their own. Theyareconvinced that these training classes can make up for what isnottaught in school, hence, more competitive edge over theirpeers.The latter group of people, nonetheless, criticize it as asheerwaste of resources. They warn that the quality of mosttrainingcourses is questionable, as they are marketed to get moneyout ofour pocket rather than get knowledge into our head。

  As far as I am concerned, a little bit of such specialtrainingdoes us no harm, but too much of it can only prove tobecounter-productive. Anyhow, the deprived free time can bebetterinvested in recreation at weekends, talking to an old friend,orsimply enjoying a long-overdue vacation。

  (六)University Students" Pursuit of Famous Brands

  1. 现在很多大学生都追求穿名牌,用名牌

  2. 你对这种现象的看法





  University Students" Pursuit of Famous Brands

  “What perfumes are you wearing?” “Aren"t your shoes Nike"slatestrelease?” “I like the Mickey bag you bought yesterday。” “Ihear theJack & Jones store is on sale this week. Do you wannacomealong?” Don"t feel surprised if you hear them coming out ofthemouth of college students. It"s quite common to hear andseecollege students swapping information about the brands theylikeand the products they use. In fact, discussions about brandnameshave become one of the college students" favourite pastimes.Theylearn about the latest fashion from each other, exchange tipsaboutwhen and where to get the item, and buy it at theirearliestconvenience. “Keeping up with the Joneses” is theirconviction –“If the Joneses have it, how could I have not?”

  About this current mindset of the college students, manypeoplemay hasten to show their disapproval. They"ll probably takeit tobe a reflection of the students" vanity and superficiality.Andthey may lecture them on the virtue of being thrifty。

  However, I beg to differ. For one thing, name-brand productsareusually quality products. As such, they are somethingbeautiful,endurable, and reliable. “The love of beauty is common toall,”goes the proverb; therefore, there"s nothing to blame aboutthepursuit of famous brands. For the other, college students areoldenough to make their own decisions. Likewise, they must abidebythe consequences if they make an ill-advised one. If they lettheirpursuit of brands eat into their budget for other moreimportantissues, they should be able to correct their mistakes andkeepeverything in moderation. So this becomes no other than agoodchance to learn management, isn"t it?

  (3)vanity and superficiality虚荣心和面子观(肤浅、表面、浅薄)

  (七)Knowledge and Diploma

  1. 目前社会上存在这样一种说法:文凭越高越吃香

  2. 而有些人则认为文凭不等于知识

  3. 你的观点




  l Knowledge and Diploma

  It is generally believed that a high diploma guaranteesapromising future. Some people identify high diplomas withprofoundknowledge and exceptional competence. Companies also tendtoemphasize the academic achievement of a job candidate. Like itornot, there does exist a social reality – the higher diplomasonegets, the more popular he becomes。

  On the contrary, other people claim that a high diplomadoesn"tautomatically translate into knowledge. A diploma, in theireyes,is only the acknowledgment of one"s educational experienceratherthan a guarantee of one"s ability. Therefore, we can nevermeasurethe depth of one"s knowledge by the grade of one"sdiploma.Besides, many knowledgeable people don"t have a highdiploma. TakeBill Gates for example. His dropping out of collegecannot deny thefact that he is one of the world"s most learnedmen。

  So I must say no one should ever equate a diploma withknowledge,because a diploma is nothing but a proof of a short-termstudywhile genuine knowledge needs one"s lifelong devotion。

  (八)The Rise of Shanzhai Culture

  1. 最近兴起了一股“山寨热”

  2. 你如何看待山寨现象





  l The Rise of Shanzhai Culture

  The vast array of knockoff name-brand products, such ascellphones, DVDs, MP3 players, have made “shanzhai” the hottestword ofthe year. Now we wear shanzhai watches, talk throughshanzhai cellphones, play shanzhai video games, use shanzhaicomputers, evenwatch shanzhai TV shows. Once a term used beforesome electronicproducts to suggest a copycat version of inferiorquality, shanzhainow suggests to many Chinese creativity andtrendiness. With themedia all over the rise of shanzhai culture,public opinions areclearly divided。

  Advocates invariably associate it with innovation,stylishness,the DIY spirit, open-mindedness and practicality, asshanzhaiproducts often mix imitation with innovation – a similarskin but adifferent heart. The end products are usually more naland muchcheaper than the original. Besides, they respond to themarket moreswiftly and they are more considerate in design. Thanksto them,more people at the grassroots level can enjoy the benefitof moderntechnology。

  However, other people, including myself, hold morereservedattitudes towards the shanzhai fever. For all thepopularity it haswon, a copycat is a copycat. The mockery of theprestige productsnot only steals their profits but also upsetsmarket competition.Moreover, shanzhai products thrive on thecurrent legal loopholes.Under the disguise of anti-dominanceslogans, they make illegalprofits by violating intellectualproperty rights and evadingtaxes. And to top it off, the so-calledinnovation is onlysenseless talk as true innovation always faceshuge costs andpotential failures, while plagiarism simply buildssuccess on otherpeople"s risks。

  l It"s Time to Stop Software Piracy

  China has often been criticized for the rampant practiceofsoftware piracy. Take a look around. We operate on piratedWindowssystems, defend PC security with pirated Kasperskyanti-virusprogrammes, process files with pirated Microsoft Office,draft 3Ddesigns with pirated AutoCAD, refine pictures with piratedAdobePhotoshop, and study English with pirated Kingsoft"selectronicdictionaries and translators. It"s no exaggeration thatpiratedsoftware is everywhere。

  The logic behind the phenomenon is simple and clear: if apiratedcopy is available for just a tiny fraction of the normalprice, notto speak of many of the free downloads online, who wouldpay for anauthentic copy? Cheaper prices aside, easy access isanotherimportant factor. With such a large gathering of piratedupgradesaround, who would bother to spend time and money searchingthestores for an authorized yet outdated version?

  Despite these apparent benefits, the practice of softwarepiracyshould be banned, because it represents unfair competitionand bynature it"s a no-win situation. But how? Two approaches areto betaken at the same time: Technically, software developersshouldenhance their antipiracy engineering, so that cracking thesoftwareshould be virtually impossible. And legally, the governmentshouldalso tighten its antipiracy laws and toughen up thepenalties, sothat violations should be costly。

Its impact on our daily life canbe felt inall walks of life。

  College students inevitably fall victim to this pervasive slumpaswell. On top of that, internships and job vacancies are reducedtothe minimum as companies keep shrinking. New graduatesfindthemselves hard to get a job, not to speak of a satisfactoryone.What comes next? Poor students will be hard-pressed if theyfindstudent loans unavailable any more. As a result, some evencannotafford to continue their studies. Lastly, more studentsareprobably out there anxiously looking for part-time jobs nowthatthey have to help cover their expenses in this gloomyeconomy.Their innocence and eagerness might be taken advantage ofby somemalicious businesspeople, or even criminal gang。

  In response to these threats, we students must act promptlyandwisely. Since we definitely will be facing a competitivejobmarket, it"s crucial that we submit high qualityresumes.Therefore, we must commit more to our professional studies.Even dobetter, master more relevant job skills as a doublesecurity.Furthermore, apply for scholarships and grants, as theseare stillavailable and we don"t have to pay them back. As for thesafetyissues, trust our instinct – there"s no free lunch in thisworld.Anything that promises quick returns without much work is asuretrap. Stay alert and protect ourselves。
