Part  1

1.  When was the last time you went to a forest?

Sample  answer:

When  I was an exchange student in Taiwan several years ago, I went to Ali Mountain  with my roommates. I was so exciting because there were so many hard-wood trees  that I hadn’t seen before. The scenery was appealing like what we see in  fictitious films. We also took the train and watched the beautiful landscape at  the same time which was a precious memory for all of us.


2.  Do you like going to a forest if you are free?

Sample  answer:

I’d  like to. Travelling to a forest is an excellent experience and can refresh my  mind. However, I live in a megacity and it’s not feasible for me to go to a  forest as I wish.


3.  How often do you eat with your family?

Sample  answer:

Since  my family and I live thousands of miles apart from each other, we rarely eat  together. When it’s Spring Festival, we get together for family reunion. At this  time of year, we cook dumplings, steamed bread and various cuisines and interact  with each other about our lives and works. Spending some quality time with my  family is always great pleasure for me.


4.  Do you like eating healthy food?

Sample  answer:

Definitely.  I love healthy food like fresh fruits and vegetables. Though I occasionally want  to eat some junk foods like French fries or burgers from McDonald, I eat healthy  food in my daily routine because they are high in nutrition and low in calories.  For example, I often eat a boiled egg and an apple for breakfast when I have no  time cooking.


5.  Do you eat out a lot?

Sample  answer:

Once  I ate out a lot because l lived alone and can’t cook. Then I began to gain  weight and I realized I shouldn’t eat out a lot any more. Those dishes in  restaurants are greasy and salty which is not good for my health. There is a  great chance to suffer from cardiovascular and gastrointestinal problems. In  addition, it costs a lot more than eat at home. Now I start cooking at home and  I feel much healthier than before.


6.  Have you ever been to an island?

Sample  answer:

Yeah,  I have been to an island once. It’s an activity organized by my company. We went  on an autumn trip, a one-day excursion which includes exploring an island. We  landed on an island and spent about an hour strolling and taking photos. The  island is not big, so it only takes about half an hour to travel the whole  island. It’s uninhabited, with fantastic natural scenery.


7.  What’s your favorite hairstyle?

Sample  answer:

My  favorite hairstyle is dreadlocks. It’s a hairstyle common on rappers, which may  be thought to represent a rebellious state. But I think it’s just a matter of  individual expression. Two of my colleagues have tried the dreadlocks. Both of  them got artificially dreadlocks temporarily when travelling abroad. It’s a pity  I didn’t try this hairstyle myself. It’s already on the top of my lit, and I’ve  determined to try dreadlocks when I go to Thailand this November.


8.  How often do you have your hair cut?

Sample  answer:

I  have short hair with thin bangs, and I’ve the hair cut every month to keep the  same hairstyle for many years since my childhood. There are two reasons why I  have never tried a new haircut. The first reason is that my hair is too thin to  keep it long. Besides, I’m used to my haircut, so I feel uncomfortable to appear  with a new hairstyle. So I have to go to the barber’s about every month. It has  become a routine of my daily life.


9.  Do you often wear makeup?

Sample  answer:

Not  really. It’s unlikely for a university student to make up too often, since our  schedule is too tight. But sometimes I will wear makeup under certain  circumstance like job interview, for the sake of respect.


10.  Have you ever been to the countryside?

Sample  Answer:

Yep,  I have been to countryside when I was a school girl, for every this time of the  year, the school have arranged outings for the whole student body to the  countryside in Shanghai. I still remember once we have been to Chongming Island,  the third largest island in China. The weather was fine those days and we  enjoyed taking some typical Chongming food. That was a good time  then.  

Part  2

1.  Describe a historical building

You  should say:

Where  it is

What  it looks like

What  it is used for now

What  you learned there

And  how you felt about this


Sample  answer:

What  I am about to describe is a building that once marked cultural and historical  apex but that has now fallen into obscurity. That’s right; it’s the Confucius  Temple, Confucius residence while he was living. It’s located in Qufu, a small  town in central Shandong Province. Like any other temple, it has got a lobby  beyond the entrance, with the portrait of Confucius hung on the wall. There are  three bedrooms on either side of the lobby, but that area has become off-limits  to tourists, so I didn’t really get a peek of that. Though the building has been  standing for thousands of years, it has been subject to multiple renovations in  recent decades that gave the building a semblance of modernity. I have to resort  to my imagination to picture what it originally looked like.


Now,  the entire area has been converted into a tourist hot-spot. Visitors pay an  entrance fee to visit the building; many would kneel before the portrait of  Confucius to pray for blessings, after which they will throw cash bills into the  so-called wish box in a hope that their wish will eventually come  true.


Despite  all the fuss over the history of the building, I don’t believe the place is  worth another visit. As I have mentioned earlier, it smacks of money filth. The  temple is run by a few monks, although whether they are authentic and genuine is  beyond my knowledge. The money is simply taken by the government to rebuild  other parts of the town. Unless you are a true believer in such ritual, it is a  waste of money and you wouldn’t truly disappointed if the purpose of your visit  is to learn something about Confucius and its history.


Part  3

1)  Do Chinese people like to visit historical buildings?

Sample  answer:

They  are crazy about those cultural relics. On public holidays, these places are  packed with travelers of all sorts: children, old age, and foreigners. What  Chinese travelers like to do most is to take far more photos than necessary of  the view. Even well before the holiday season, one can be sure that these places  would be incredibly crowded.


2)  Why do people visit historical buildings?

Sample  answer:

Their  motivation for visiting these places truly befuddles me. Many barely understand  or show any interest in history; they take a lot of selfies and upload onto  their social media. To me, perhaps, it is the crowd effect and their desire to  be part of the festival atmosphere that has prompted them to make the  visits.


3)  Is it necessary to protect historical buildings?

Sample  answer:

Well,  it really depends on the historical importance of the building. One-of-a-kind  landmarks that play a pivotal role in history certainly warrant adequate  protection. But the problem is many local governments see the potential in  making loads of money out of tourism industry and thus convert ordinary,  century-old buildings into tourist destinations and attach a “beautiful story”  to it. That has nothing to do with cultural preservation; that’s pure business  and money talking.


4)  Do most people agree to the government’s funding to protect historical  buildings?

Sample  answer:

Not  necessarily. Locals have long lost interest in buildings they see every single  day, and if turned into tourist spots, these buildings are bound to attract a  great number of travelers that may intrude into the personal life of locals.  Those living on the bottom of social ladder are particularly vexed, since they  could benefit more directly from governmental investment in basic healthcare  coverage, education, and social security as opposed to preservation of old  buildings that from their perspective are of no utilitarian value.



2.  Describe a person who encouraged and helped you to achieve a  goal

You  should say:

Who  this person is

What  this person encouraged you to do

How  this person helped you

And  explain why this encouragement helped you to achieve the goal


Sample  answer:

Last  year, my weight reached an all-time-high. I was literally shocked to see the  number on the scale, suspecting something must have gone wrong with it. When I  did the calculation of my BMI, I was looking at a figure that was beyond the  threshold for morbid obesity. For the first time in life, I felt the strong urge  to lose weight.


But  the thing is the fatter I got, the more challenging it would be for me to stick  to the workout plan. I didn’t believe I got the determination to exercise  regularly to reduce my weight to the average standard. However, my friend Josh  egged me on. He is an active member of my university gym and he said that he’s  got some weight-loss tips. I believed him; well, if you’d seen his six packs and  upper-body muscle, you’d understand what I am talking about. He set a rather  ambitious goal: he promised me I’d lose at least 20 pounds in a month, so long  as I stick to his plan. Thanks to his encouraging words, I jumped on  board.


In  the first few days, I felt as if the thinner me was being dragged and squeezed  out of the flesh wrap that trapped me in. My muscles were sore and I couldn’t  feel my legs. At some point, I even began to convince myself that being fat  wasn’t so bad after all; if I kept doing exercises, there would be a good chance  I could literally die. But Josh was there after my every workout, helping  massage my muscles and instructing me on my dietary intake for the next day.  


Miracle  happened in 10 days, when I already lost six pounds and ten more in the next 10  days. At the end of the plan, I lost nearly 25 pounds. I was genuinely grateful  for Josh. If it wasn’t for his encouragement or as I had always called it  “psychological manipulation”, I would’ve long given up.


Part  3

1)  Why is it important for teenagers to set goals?

Sample  answer:

Teenagers  are surrounded with so many temptations in their life. Without a clear goal in  mind, they might easily lose track of the purpose of life and indulge themselves  in computer games, shopping, or endless chatting on social media. Goals will  keep their life on the right track and protect them from those distractions.  


2)  What will encourage children to learn more?

Sample  answer:

I  don’t believe conventional approach such as financial rewards would work in the  long run. The motivation for learning has to come from deep down in their heart,  so the best way is to inspire children’s interest in learning, helping them  recognize fun of the learning process and the satisfaction of successfully  learning something new.


3)  Do parents and teachers punish children physically nowadays?

Sample  answer:

Very  rarely. Corporal punishment used to be the norm both inside the classroom or at  home, but things have changed. Many new parents realize that traditional ways no  longer work very effectively; scientific approach to child rearing is strongly  called for. So what we see then is parenting books are quickly snapped up in  bookstores, and none of those books encourages violent punishment.


4)  Who do you think has the greater influence on the goal-setting of children,  teachers or parents?

Sample  answer:

Well,  teachers evidently have bigger influence. Many parents are still spoiling or  tolerating their children, so children are well aware that they can somehow get  away with anything they are expected to do. Yet, children are taught to see  teachers with respect. Whatever goals teachers set for them, children are more  likely to listen and obey. It is such authoritative power teachers hold that has  made them a bigger influence on the goal-setting of children.


3.  Describe an occasion when you invite your family or friends to  dinner

You  should say:

 When  you invited them

 Where  you had the dinner, at home or at the restaurant

 Why  you invited them

 And  how you felt about this dinner


Sample  answer:

Mentioning  an occasion when I treated my friend for a dinner, a special get-together comes  into my mind. After getting through two-month peak summer, I managed to spare  personal time last week, so I invited my friend Bella to a dinner at home.  


My  home I am living in now is not spacious enough to accommodate a lot of visitors  but three people: my husband, my friend and I. I admit that I was a bit nervous  about hosting this dinner, as I wanted my guest to approve of my new place of  living and my capability of cooking. But at the same time, I was a bit anxious  about cooking as I have limited experience as a cook, and I can only deal with  some simple and daily dishes. Thankfully my husband, an excellent chef, cooked  some Sichuan spicy food for the dinner. Surprisingly so was my guest and she  brought a bag of fresh sea food from her hometown Zhoushan. It can be imagined  that they both took the responsibility to prepare the whole meal: a feast of  Sichuan food by him and sea food by her, such as Mapo bean curd, boiled Fish and  Beef, steamed crabs. What a big hit the dishes were! I was lucky enough to be a  guest as a result.


With  certainty, I, a person who didn’t make any contribution, had to shoulder a great  project of cleaning and washing after dinner. It was an unforgettable experience  for treating my friend.


Part  3

1)  Where do Chinese people usually eat, at home or at  restaurants?

Sample  answer:

I  think it really depends. To illustrate, I believe office workers who work in the  downtown are more likely to eat at restaurants because there are plenty of  restaurants available nearby. On the other hand, people living and working in a  rural area need to prepare for dinner by themselves, so eating at home is a  preference.


2)  Why do more and more people like to eat at restaurants rather than at  home?

Sample  answer:

There  are many reasons for this in my opinion. In pursuit of convenience comes first.  The main advantage of eating at a restaurant is to spend less personal time  preparing a meal. They are willing to pay amount of money in exchange for time  to avoid such a trouble.


3)  What are the advantages and disadvantages of eating at  restaurants?

Sample  answer:

From  my point of view, the major disadvantage of eating at restaurants is that there  is no control over food that I eat. I typically cannot decide how much food  there are on the plate and what ingredients are used, which leaves my health  into others’ dominance. Another disadvantage is that dining out is much more  expensive than eating at home. However, the biggest advantage for eating out is  convenience which means that there is no need to buy, prepare, and cook for a  meal as well as doing a series of cleaning and sweeping after meal. Besides, we  can order varieties of food and drinks in a restaurant.


4)  Do you think it is possible that everyone will eat at restaurants instead of at  home in the future?

Sample  answer:

I  don’t think so. Although I believe eating at a restaurant will still become  popular for the public, it would not be realistic that everyone eats out all the  time. If everyone needs to go out and eat, new problems such as traffic  congestion and crowdedness will occur as a consequence. Eating at home, however,  tends to create a sense of belonging and warmth at table, especially in a mild  light with beloved ones.



4.  Describe an unusual experience of traveling

You  should say:

 Where  you went

 When  you went there

 Who  you were with

 What  you did there

 And  explain why it is unusual


Sample  answer:

When  talking about an unusual experience of travelling, I would like to share a time  when I participated in a competition of Fitness Bikini in Shanghai last year  with my husband.


I  remember it was in the middle of November. We arrived in Shanghai train station  the day before competition on a windy day and were delivered by an official  coach to a five-star hotel in Jingan District. That was an unusual trip because  we went to Shanghai not only for sight-seeing but for dream-pursuing: Global  Championship. Unfortunately, I did not realize I lost my cosmetics until I  opened my suitcase in the hotel, which shocked me a lot and even rendered me to  depression.


Although  I didn’t fulfill my original goal and was only awarded a third price as a  result, we still paid a visit to a tiny Cantonese restaurant with Hong Kong  style decorations. In addition, Shanghai impressed us too much due to the local  citizens in the duration of the days. For example, no one tended to break the  traffic law by walking through a red traffic light, but they kept waiting until  the light turned green.


And  definitely, Shanghai has been listed to one of my must-visit cities and I would  go there over and again.


Part  3

1)  What are some popular attractions that people like to visit?

Sample  answer:

I’m  thinking that some popular attractions people inevitably stop by while  travelling are the major landmarks of the tourist destination. For example, if I  were to visit Paris, the Eiffel Tower would be a place that I must go to. Other  than that, I believe that sites of historic significance are also popular, since  they have played a role in shaping history due to a witness of historical ups  and downs.


2)  Why do many people like to travel abroad?

Sample  answer:

For  my part, I believe that the reason why travelling abroad has gained popularity  is that flights become more accessible and affordable. For example, many direct  flights are added to the airport in my hometown, so I can travel to some  destinations more easily than before. I think that another reason why people  enjoy travelling abroad is to experience the exotic culture of a new  place.


3)  What do people usually do during long holidays?

Sample  answer:

It  seems to me that people make use of long holidays either to visit friends and  families who live faraway or to take some time off and go on a vacation. I  personally prefer to spend some time at home, to simply take a break and enjoy  myself, and use this opportunity to take care of all the things I usually  postpone until later.


4)  Do you think there will be more ecotourism in the future?

Sample  answer:

As  more and more people are mindful of their impacts on the environment, I am  certain that indeed new ecotourism offerings will be developed in the future. If  I were given the choice, I’d certainly prefer to travel in a way that minimizes  my impact on the environment as much as possible. I also believe that this is a  fantastic way for people who aren’t usually close to nature to experience  it.



5.  Describe a time you heard a stranger talking on the phone in the public  place

You  should say:

 Where  you were

 When  it was

 What  the stranger was talking about

 And  explain how you felt about it


Sample  answer:

Speaking  of a time I heard someone talking on the phone, a recent experience popped into  my mind immediately.


Last  Sunday, I was sitting in a cafe while enjoying my cappuccino. I couldn’t help  noticing a guy at the next table was making a phone call to a taxi company to  see if they could reach out to a taxi driver. It turned out that he was in such  a hurry that he left his wallet accidentally in a taxi which he had taken to see  off his friend at the airport earlier that day and he just realized it until he  was later in the café. Then he was anxiously looking at his phone all the time  as if he would missed any. After around five minutes, he got a phone call and  picked it up immediately. I heard that the call was from the taxi driver telling  him that his wallet was still in the taxi with the driver. He was thrilled and  nearly cried out, cause he had all his important IDs and cards inside it. The  driver checked some information with him and he said he would meet the driver at  the entrance of the shopping mall later. He seemed quite released and relaxed  after getting this phone call and left the cafe later to retrieve his  wallet.


Generally  speaking, I think it is important to follow simple rules of cell phone etiquette  in public and I usually expect people to keep quiet in public places. I have  also had some annoying experiences of hearing people around me chatting for a  long time, and I think people may invade others’ personal space in tranquil  places. But I felt happy after having overheard this conversation, cos a genuine  emergency call like this could save this person a ton of hassle. You know, the  society is becoming more and more complicated and most of the calls are from  cold calling companies or even spams. Although the news are always full of doom  and gloom these days, this driver makes me feel he is sincere and trustworthy. I  think sometimes I should trust in the goodness of human nature. After this  invaluable experience, I wouldn’t mind people picking up phone calls in public  places as long as they don’t disturb surrounding people.


Part  3

1)  Why do you think some people talk aloud on public transport?

Sample  answer:

Firstly,  I think that depends on different people. Children generally are self-centered  and don’t pay attention to their behaviour in public transport. Consequently,  they tend to talk aloud or make noises wherever they go. As far as adults are  concerned, however, it generally has something to do with people’s habits. Some  people are used to talking aloud, whether in public or in private places, for  years or even decades, so they do not take other people’s feelings into account.  These people might not realize that their loud noises disturb other passengers  or even worse, they do not care about others at all. Since they mostly do not  realize this impolite habit that has been kept for so long, it is hard for them  to change. Also, it depends to a certain extent what kind of public transport  you’re on and how long the journey is. For example, if you’re taking a 30  minutes journey on a bus, many people might take that opportunity to make a  quick call, which can be acceptable provided that it’s not too loud. However, it  is unacceptable that someone on a three-hour train journey talking very loudly  the whole way, so short conversations are less offensive than long  conversations.


2)  Should people be banned from talking aloud in public places?

Sample  answer:

Personally,  I believe that it depends on what kinds of public places. The essence of good  manners is to make another person feel comfortable. If people are in public  places where loud noises are expected and do not disturb other people, like live  concerts, bars and sports events, they should be allowed to talk aloud. The  reason for this is that loud noises can spice up the atmosphere on these  occasions and lead people to have a great time. On the other hand, in order to  show others respect, people should be prohibited from talking aloud in public  places where noises might give others a hard time or invade their personal  space, such as in the library or hospital. On top of that, I think it also  depends on the specific situations. Sometimes, genuine emergencies do occur, and  some calls truly can’t wait. For example, I think it’s acceptable for people to  talk loud on their phones in public place if people are trying to reach their  hearing-impaired or elderly family members, parents are expecting an important  call from their child, and those in the midst of a crisis.


3)  Is it bad to talk on the phone in public places?

Sample  answer:

Well,  I think it really depends on what types of public places and different  situations. First thing first, if people are in some noisy public places like  live concerts, pubs and major train stations, it should be appropriate to talk  on the phone. As long as people can keep their volume modest while talking on  phone in public places, I think it is fine. More often than that, when our  phones ring, it is quite hard to find suitable places quickly where talking  doesn’t annoy anyone else. Therefore, it is alright so long as the chatters do  not disturb others. However, if the public places require utter silence, it is  inappropriate to talk on the phone. For examples, it’s quite rude and  inconsiderate to talk on your phone in a quiet classroom or library. What’s  more, making phone calls may cause some safety issues, for instance, cell phones  can interfere with the functioning of delicate instruments in airplanes and  hospitals.


4)  Why do some people always break rules in public places?

Sample  answer:

There  are a couple of reasons that can explain this phenomenon. To begin with, despite  the knowledge of rules in place, some people decide to ignore the rules for  their self-interests. Some people believe that they have to keep their personal  freedom even in public places, and they would simply ignore warning signs or  challenge the regulations as long as they aren’t caught or punished. For  example, some people believe that cell phone bans intrude on their personal  freedom and they can use the devices wherever and whenever they choose as they  pay a high monthly price for this communication option. It’s pretty common for  smokers to enjoy their cigarettes in some restaurants or bathrooms in spite of  the “No Smoking” signs and anti-smoking regulations. Secondly, some people do  not realize what they are doing is against the rules, therefore they fail to  obey rules that they do not know. Last but not least, some people believe that  most likely they are not going to get caught when breaking rules. It’s not  uncommon that some people make significant mistakes by taking unnecessary risks.  Therefore, warning signs or notices should be placed properly in these public  places.

6.  Describe a time that you spent a lot of money on something

You  should say:

 When  you spent the money

 What  you bought

 Where  you bought it

 And  explain why you spent a lot of money on it


Sample  answer:

Frankly  speaking, as a woman who has married I have thrown my money at many things, say,  the house, the furniture and the decoration of the house, etc. But those are  just things maybe everyone has spent money on or will purchase in one’s  lifetime. So in recent years the scarf I had bought for my friend as his  birthday gift last winter could be something special enough that I could talk  about. You know, I spent almost six thousand yuan on a scarf from Gucci which is  black with red and green border, the basic one, for him. I spent that much money  buying the scarf for my friend mostly because as my birthday present he had  purchased me an iPhone 6, which truly surprised me the moment I received the  phone. As a matter of fact, we made a bet on something I could not remember. He  lost, so he kept his words to buy me something expensive. Even though we had  known each other for more than ten years, in my opinion I had never thought I  was so important in his heart that he prepared an iPhone as a present. Since  then on I realized he really cherished me as a friend. Of course, I am not  saying that in order to maintain our friendship we should buy one another luxury  items or friendship should be measured by money. However as a lady I always  insist that we should never take anything or anyone for granted. That is why I  decided to buy that scarf for him as his birthday present so to  speak.


Part  3

1)  Why do people save money?

Sample  answer:

There  must be several reasons. Firstly, I suppose maybe they save money in case of  emergencies, you know, like the serious illness, car accidents or fire and so  on. Then they will not panic when they are facing emergencies. Secondly, perhaps  they need an amount of money to buy something costly so that they save, say, to  buy a house, a car or a ticket to some places they long for. With money they  saved, they could achieve those things more easily. Or some people, especially  some old people, they may have grown this habit, especially in China, many old  people have been used to do so, even though they have had everything they need.  They have been used to frugality and then they save almost everything not only  money. While if young people start to save at a young age in China that is  because they have been taught to. Those are just my ideas.


2)  Do you think rich people are happier than those who are not  rich?

Sample  answer:

It’s  really hard to just simply say yes or no. Some rich people they have their  dreams to pursue. They do feel happy. But some who are just wealthy but have no  significant things to do and just enjoy their lives without true friends or  someone they love besides they feel life is meaningless sometimes than some  people who have financial problems but have clear future plans. There are many  rich people in this world are well using their fame, reputation, as well as  money to make a difference in the world but also some people known as the second  generation of the rich are taking drugs and doing things stupid every day and  they are not really happy. So I really don’t think we should attach happiness to  money, that’s why we often hear some poor people said even though they don’t  have much money, they still are happy because of what they have had, like  families, friends, lovers, children, and a simple but meaningful  life.


3)  Do you think children should learn money management?

Sample  answer:

I  couldn’t agree with it any more. The sooner children learn money management, the  better they will know how difficult it is to earn money and use money  appropriately, like, some children are given freedom to plan for how to spend  their pocket money given by parents altogether for the whole semester, if they  cannot arrange the plan well, they may use up their money quickly so they have  to do something to earn money if they still want some pocket money, like house  chores, which may let them realize that if we want money we need to work that  seem hard than we thought, so they may think twice when they want to spend money  on something, like a toy or a bar of chocolate. In addition, teach children  money management is beneficial to build their sense of responsibility, as they  may feel the money they spend belongs to the whole family and their decision of  how to use it, where to use it can influence other members in a  family.


4)  Why do many people apply for credit cards nowadays?

Sample  answer:

I  guess reasons are different today from those in the past. At the very beginning,  most people liked to pay with credit cards was because that they felt convenient  and happy to first borrow money from the bank and paid back for the money later,  particularly on some emergency cases. Then people came to know the good of  credit cards. By the way, banks encouraged people to do so that they may gather  some money for other uses. Therefore people were willing to pay with their  credit cards and apply for those. However, now, because of the inflation, people  feel money depreciate too fast, while houses or some other real estate are  worthy investing, so they borrow money from banks to buy those things or borrow  money to do whatever they think deserves to loan money from banks right away. Of  course, there are some young people apply for credit card to buy some luxuries  to satisfy their vanity.



7.  Describe a water sport you would like to try in the future

You  should say:

 What  it is

 Where  you would like to try it

 How  difficult it is

 And  why you would like to try it


Sample  answer:

The  water sport that I want to try in the future is surfing. It is a sport that is  particularly popular among youngsters. Unlike some mainstream sports such as  basketball and football, surfing does not have a long history. According to some  studies, it originates from Australia in the 1970s. It has become more and more  popular in China in recent years.


It  was in high school that I got to know this sport for the first time. I remember  there was an article in our English textbook introducing surfing history and  skills which could help people surf well. The teacher even played a relevant  video for us. The video made a deep impression on me because all the players in  the video were passionate and even female players looked very cool. After that  going surfing has always been one of my dreams that I must realize in the  future.


I  know that there are plenty of places in China where people can go surfing such  as Sanya, Shenzhen and so on, but the place where I want to try it the most is  the Gold Coast in Australia because scenery there is gorgeous. Crystal-clear  water and professional coaches in this area make this place a perfect surfing  spot. Since it is a surfing paradise and a lot of young celebrities usually surf  there, I might happen to see them if I surf there.


However,  I heard from my friends that surfing can be pretty challenging and might be a  bit risky for complete beginners because people have to master some basic skills  and overcome the psychological barriers. To be honest, I am afraid of getting  into water and I even spent quite a long time learning to swim.


Even  though it is difficult for me, I am still looking forward to doing it not just  because I want to realize my dream in high school, but also because I hope I can  challenge myself. My best friend and I had a deal that we would go to Australia  during the next winter holiday and try surfing there.


Part  3

1)  What’s the difference between outdoor sports and indoor  sports?

Sample  answer:

Well,  outdoor sports such as cycling, hiking, mountain climbing and so forth are  generally played outside, so there must be really large areas for people to do  these sports. Most of time in order to do outdoor sports, people might have to  go to some quiet and peaceful places like parks, mountains, valleys etc. When  doing outdoor sports, people can get closer to nature and even breathe some  fresh air. Some people also said doing outdoor sports is a way to stay away from  the hustle and bustle of the city.

Badminton,  bowling, yoga are all indoor sports and people have to do these sports inside  rooms. For instance, people always do yoga at homes or in the gyms. If people  want to play badminton, they’d better go to stadiums or sports centers. When  doing some outdoor sports, people do not have to worry about weather condition.  However, if it is rainy or stormy, people cannot do any outdoor  sport.


2)  What kinds of water sports are popular nowadays?

Sample  answer:

Personally,  I think swimming is the most popular sport now. I dare say the majority of  people like swimming because it is suitable for nearly everyone. More  importantly, since people do not have to master a lot of skills, it is easy to  learn to swim. On average most people can learn it within a few days. You might  not believe that nowadays swimming is a compulsory course in elementary schools  and secondary schools in some areas and students who can achieve better  performance in swimming are more likely to be accepted by some famous schools,  so many parents encourage their children to swim.

Plus,  surfing and diving are also popular now especially among young people. Unlike  swimming, these two water sports are more challenging and exciting. Young people  like to challenge themselves and they have a great sense of achievement when  they break their last records.


3)  Why should we develop water transport?

Sample  answer:

Water  transport is a trend because of globalization. The sea connects different  continents, so water transport played a very important role in shipping goods  from one continent to another far before trains and planes were invented. Water  transport brings people a lot of benefits. Unlike other transports, water  transport can help people save a lot of money. Since it operates on the natural  tracks on the sea and people do not have to spend too much money constructing  tracks, it is the cheapest mode of transport. Additionally, water transport is  far more suitable to transport heavy and large goods over long distance than air  transport and train transport due to its large carrying capacity. Water  transport can promote trade and makes different parts of the world become  closer. As far as I know, there are many sea areas that have to be discovered  and explored in the future  and I trust water transport can help us better get  to know these areas.
