Task 1 考题预测


The maps below show the layout of a school in 1985 and this year.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.





The map above presents differences between layout of a school in 1985 and that in this year.


In 1985, the school with the total population of 1,500 had a big car park at the north end and a long road extended at the south of the car park with a playing field at the dead end of the road. On the west side of school, there was an office, a library, a small car park and classrooms. On the opposite side, 2-story classrooms were there.


At present, the school has changed a lot. First of all, the student population has increased to 2,300. Then, the road in the middle has been replaced by trees. Moreover, the original library on the west side has disappeared and a computer room and a resource centre were built instead, and the small car park on the west side also disappeared. Lastly, the areas of 2-story classrooms were reduced by two-thirds, and more classrooms were constructed in the place.


Overall, the teaching facilities and resources become more various now.


The chart below shows the change of household car ownership in a European country in four different time periods.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Percentage of Private Cars




The bar chart shows the variation in the percentage of households that owned no car, one car and two or more cars in a European country during a 30-year period from 1971 to 2001.


As can be seen from the bar chart, the car was a much less popular household item in the 1970s than it is today. Over 50%of families in this country did not have a car of their own in 1971, 35% had only one car, and less than one fifth of those families owned two or more cars.


The next decade, however, saw a significant increase in car ownership. In 1981, the percentage of families with one car decreased to 30% while that of households with no cars sharply declined to approximately 40%. During the same period, nearly 3o% of those families owned two or more cars.


From 1991 to 2001, an increasing number of families purchased their first car, pushing the percentage of households with one car to a record high of 50% in 1991 and over 40% in 2001. At the same time, there was also a slight decrease in the percentage of families without a car and the percentage of families with two or more cars, not surprising, kept increasing from 21% in 1991 to nearly 30% at the end of the 30-year period.

Task 2 考题预测


Many countries spend a lot of money preparing competitors to take part in major sports competitions such as Olympic Games, or football World Cup. Some people say it would be better to spend this money encouraging children to take up sports from a young age. To what extent do you agree or disagree?



Governments in countries like China and the US have been providing a considerable amount of financial support on preparing athletes for big sports events. However, some may argue that more benefits are sure to be gained if this sum of money could be spent on promoting sports for children. I am completely in favor of this view.


ndoubtedly the amount of fund offered to those competitors is closely related to the results a country can attain in the sports event, but the state policy of investing current athletes is very short-sighted as it possibly cannot ensure the overall performance in the future. Thus a more effective and sustainable approach is to develop sports for children, which helps more of them get involved in sports from which they may also find their interests and talents. Suppose governmental funding provides talented children from poor families with opportunities to fulfill their sports dreams, those with gift and enthusiasm to get rid of poverty will be really devoted. In this way, a country will always have adequate sports talent reserve, a very positive cycle to enhance competitiveness in a variety of sport events in the long term.


A more practical concern of this issue is that encouraging children to participate in sports improves children's general public health. Today children's health issue has become so severe due to the prevalence of sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy food choices. Regular sports exercise is therefore essential for almost all children even though most of them will not engage in professional sports when grow up. By offering more free sports facilities or sports training courses both at school and in community, children are supposed to be more physically active, thus reducing the risk of health problems including obesity, high blood pressure and rarefaction of bones.


On the other hand, winning sports competition does cheer citizens of a country at the sight for a while, but it brings no tangible benefits to the society, not to mention depriving individual interest in terms of insufficient public infrastructure supported with limited fund.

In conclusion, state budget should better be spent on issues that concern more people, which will be meaningful in the long run since overall benefits of children are considered.


Nowadays people are living in a “throw-away” society where we use things for a short time and throw them away.

What are the causes of the problem?

What effects does the phenomenon lead to?



As convenience is valued over environmental conservation, modern people are likely to throw away products only used for a short period of time instead of keeping these items. It is important to reverse this trend immediately.


The causes of the development of the "throw-away society" are clear, so are its impacts. The most apparent reason is that technological advancement reduces the cost of production. It is because of the fact, the public do not value what they have owned as much as they used to. Some electronic products such as mobile phones and computers are now sold at low prices, and this is why many people would discard them rather than repairing them as the expense of purchasing a brand new one is not quite high. By doing so, these non-biodegradable products can have a detrimental effect on the environment, and as a result pollution is the price we are paying for the consumerism.


Another reason is because of the influence of advertising campaign. Being exposed to various advertisements, which inform customers of new goods as well as create a trend for them to chase, it is difficult for them to resist the temptation of being fashionable and glamorous by purchasing the latest products. Obviously, an unhealthy lifestyle may emerge. In an attempt to become fashion chasers, people especially the younger generation would waste a great deal of money and time on trying diverse commodities, being materially abundant but spiritually barren.


In conclusion, considering destructive effects of this phenomenon on both environment and individuals, some steps such as raising people’s awareness of environmental protection should be done effectively to prevent the serious situation from becoming worse.


Some people think any government money spent in supporting the artists such as painters, musicians and poets should be spent on more important things. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?



Two years ago, on G20 summit in Hangzhou, political arena, attendees appreciated an impressive and marvelous show combined music, dance and costume. Besides, some government, like ice land, lavishes over twice as much as others on supporting arts for its citizens. Currently, a statement that fund from government on supporting the artists (painters, musicians, poets) should be launched on other priorities draws people’s concern. Definitely, I vote against this view.


Admittedly, many more important things are worth the investment. For instance, secure food supply for people living a large population concentration, an expansion of trade, textiles, the development of banking and other financial services…. All these are vital areas of focus are eager to need capital infusion from the government as they are closely related to civic life in basic diet, clothing and economic interaction.


Entertainment and aesthetic values are seen as fundamental human pleasure, which is well-deserved having access to financial patronage. It is known to all that painting, music and literature are tools whereby artists define and understand their world or escape from unpleasant realities, while readers or audience seek to reshape reality more satisfying form than those encountered in daily life: fantasy or fiction in artistic world permits people to objectify their anxieties and fears confront them and fulfill their hopes in fiction if not fact as much works of art seems to be a somewhat detached view of human problem, leaving audience or readers appearance of the comic version.


Also, there has been a measurable cultural change in society’s funding commitment to artists. Typical example is in China, where Chinese folk arts, like paper cutting, ballad are subsidized by the government, or they will be endangered. After all, financial omission on supporting arts is threat to artistic integrity. Promisingly, China year in Russia each year in April and Vienna New Year’s concert in January aggregated all walks of art have been highly appraised in contemporary art scene.


In conclusion, support for the artists is as important as that for many other important issues. The compelling fact is that when obtaining basic needs: food, clothing, technologies, people look forward to having access to artistic sense. Government is also beneficiary, which promotes cultural diversity by financial patronage.
