The most helpful book for me is the famous English novel “Jane Eyre” written by Charlotte Bronte. The heroine called Jane Eyre is outwardly of poor appearance but plucky. She posses great courage and indomitable spirit to battle against unfair fortune as the governess to the daughter of attractive Mr. Rochester. It encourages people to challenge fate and take a positive and independent attitude to fight for freedom and equality, thus allowing access to our own happiness.
The most useful book for me is the English dictionary. Firstly, many English words have more than one meaning and always confuse me. The dictionary can help me get over by offering many detailed explanations and examples. In addition, I can also learn how to apply the new words into writing and speaking by studying the examples earnestly. Furthermore, I can learn a lot of knowledge beside new words. For example, it is very likely that a good dictionary illustrates a specific animal or plant with a picture. Thus, we get more information out of the dictionary.
2. Describe a painting you have seen before. Why do you like it or dislike it?
My favorite paintings are Sunflowers painted by Vincent van Gogh. He painted these after leaving his native Holland for the south of France with the dream of starting an artistic community. The most famous of all sunflowers in art hold at their heart a simple parable about the brevity of life; they are at varying stages in the life cycle, from withered and wilting to vibrant full bloom.
3. Describe the most important decision that you made in your life.
The most important decision that I have ever made is when I was 19 years old, I chose chemistry as my major in my college. It’s of great importance because it determines what I will learn and what I will do the next four years. What is more, it partly determines my future career for the rest of my life. After four years of study, I think I made a right decision. Because I do like chemistry and have learned a lot of skills. I also have learned how to create an idea and implement it in my study and scientific research, which is an important ability during my lifetime.
4. What will you do to relax yourself?
I always prefer to go to a coffee house with my friends to relax myself, because I like the quiet atmosphere and soft music there. There is one such coffee house near my university. Sometimes we go there to enjoy the delicious coffee and cookies on the weekends, and all the things provided there are not very expansive. We can just sit down and share our experience with each other. So I think a coffee house is an ideal place to have a good time with friends.
5. What do you think students should do during their vacations?
Students might have many choices to spend a vacation as long as they can make the vacation time interesting or helpful. For example, you can visit your families or friends, go to concerts or do many other things for relaxation. You can also plan a trip to the city or somewhere you are longing for, which will help to broaden your view and knowledge. Furthermore, you can also choose to have a vacation internship, and the experience will increase your income as well as make you familiar with the society. So there is never lack of choices.
6. What kinds of features of cafes or restaurants do you like?
Actually, when I go to a restaurant or café I only care about some basic features. First of all, the most important thing I concern with is the sanitary condition. It’s directly related to consumers’ health. You will feel uncomfortable to sit down in a dirty house and use the dirty dishware. In addition, I think a good service is also necessary. I don’t want to wait for a meal for a long time and the waiter/waitress shouldn’t give you a cold face at least. Besides, the taste of foods provided also plays a crucial role for me to judge a restaurant or café.
7. Describe an impressive celebration or moment.
The most memorable moment is my graduation dinner party with all my classmates. It was such a special day that full of happiness and sorrow. We had studied and lived for 4 years and then we had to say goodbye to our friends. I will never forget the day we cried together and jointed in embrace. We were going different places of China and even the world, so we gave best wishes to our dear friends. Because the day means the end of one part of our lives and embarks on our promising future.
8. Describe a traditional festival.
Spring Festival may be the most important celebration in China, which symbolizes the beginning of a new year. It allows us to depart from bad luck and all displeasure together with the past as well as long for a much better future. In addition, the festival provides all Chinese people in the world an opportunity to gather with family or friends, enjoying delicious food, watching TV celebrating programs, sharing experience in the past year and receiving best wishes from each other and so on.
9. Describe the most efficient transportation in your country.
The most efficient transportation in our country is subway. First of all, it can be free of traffic problems and many other factors that may influence the normal operation of transportation. In addition, it runs much faster than bus or automobiles even in rush hours and will never stop for a traffic jam. Besides, the subway trains come frequently and punctually, thus make it easier for passengers to make schedule. All these advantages make subway the most efficient transportation.
10. Describe the most important invention in 100 years.
The most important invention in the recent century would definitely be the internet, which has changed our life so tremendously.
