Task 2 预测题目
1. Do you agree or disagree that senior students should take a gap year before entering college?
OK, I vote for the idea that senior students should take a gap year before entering college. I have a couple of reasons for that. In the first place, students are able to slow down during the gap year pondering carefully about what they want to learn and achieve in college. In fact, students in China are stressed out when they prepare for the national college entrance exam, so one gap year will definitely help them to let off steam and adjust to the upcoming college life in a better way. Additionally, during the gap year, they can take a part-time job or travel abroad by which they are able to get beneficial experiences that help them to have a much clearer goal about their future and ensure a better performance in college.
2. Some people prefer to write diaries or take photos to records things they’ve experienced. Others don’t. What is your opinion and why? Use specific reasons and examples to support your response.
I prefer to take photos of everything I have ever experienced. First, it’s the best way for to record beautiful moments of my life. I am a big fan of traveling. I would take a large number of photos of the places I have been, the people I meet as well as the food I enjoy. So every time I look at those photos, they would remind me of those unforgettable journeys. When I get old, I don’t remember anything. From those photos, I could know I have lived a colorful life before. Second, it gives me a sense of happiness when sharing those photos with my friends and family. I could tell them all those interesting stories happened to me. Last but not least, the photos could be passed on to the next generation like legacy.
