1 In fact all the pieces of advice mentioned in the interview are very useful. But if I have t choose one as the most useful, I d’choose “keep a balance ”. When we were in high school, we spent almost all our time studying. There lacked a balance between social life and academic life in high school. It ’s important to keep a balance between life and work because it will give us a sound mind in a sound body. Now we have much more free time, so we can join student organizations
or go to different activities.
2 Before I left for college my parents did have a talk with me. They told me how important college experience would be in my life. They told me about the opportunities that college education would open up to me. They told me to try to develop more interests and join some student clubs. The most impressive advice they gave me was that I should not only read books about my major; instead, they advised me to read as widely as possible. All these are very valuable pieces of advice.
Sarah: Hi I m’Sarah. I m’a student advisor at a university. I know the first year of college is always difficult. You have to adapt to a new environment, and learn to do everything on your own. To
help make your transition just a little easier, I ’m going to interview some senior students on campus let ’s see what advice they can give you.
Sarah: Hi Jennifer. What do you think is important to a freshman?
Jennifer: I think it is very important to go to class regularly. It sounds easy, but oversleeping and missing that 8 o ’clock morning class is very common. Try to go to class on time and regularly. You will learn the material in class, get to know the professors, and make friends with your classmates. You will also get important information from the professors about tests and exams.
Sarah: Mark, do you agree with Jennifer?
Mark: Absolutely. My advice is: Find a good place to study. It may be your dorm room or a corner
of the library or a quiet classroom, but find a place that works best for you to get your work done.
If you have trouble concentrating in your dorm, you need to find another place.
Sarah: Nancy, what is our advice for freshmen?
Nancy: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. ”My advice is to get involved on campus. Abig
problem for a lot of new students is that they miss home and they don't have a sense of belonging. The solution is to join a student organization, or a club, or a sports team. You will make new friends, learn new skills, and feel more connected to your school.
Sarah: Excellent advice, Nancy. Simon, it seems you have something to say.
Simon: Yes, I do. Well, I want to say you should keep a balance. College life is a mixture of social
life and academic life. Don’t join too many student organizations or go to too many activities. Otherwise, you won ’t have enough time to study. Of course, you should not become a book worm. The key is to keep a balance between fun and study.
Sarah: They all give very useful tips. But let me add a few more. Take responsibility for yourself
and your actions; take advantage of the learning resources on campus; stay healthy and eat
right. I hope you will get the most out of your college experience.
Understanding the text
1. The parents reminded their children to work hard and achieve the best they could.
2. The president calls on the students to make the most of the great resources on campus: to explore new subjects, to meet fascinating people, and to pursue new passions.
3. By saying “sample them widely ”, the president mean students should try may different courses and try something new to see what it is like.
4. If we don ’t challenge ourselves, we will not become broadly educated people, and we may not find the passion that will help us shape our future.
5. We can learn from the example of Vera Wang that we should challenge ourselves and by challenging ourselves, we are more likely to find an interest we don ’t know we have, and this interest may help us build a prosperous future.
6. W should not worry, and we should learn to face this new part of our life with enthusiasm. College experiences, pleasant or unpleasant, will provide us with valuable lessons which will enrich our life.
7. The expression Now it is your turn ”means that now it is time for you to acquire knowledge
and to pass it on.
8. The president ’s welcoming speech is really impressive. He mentions many important things about college life , the resources available on campus, as well as the opportunities we have and
the responsibilities we should take. The speech is very inspiring.
1. A university education will play a very important role in my life, and it will benefit me in a
number of ways. In the university I can acquire specialized knowledge about my major, and develop critical thinking and research skills. I will have the opportunities to meet and share
ideas with people of different minds. I can gain a broader view of the world by meeting people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. And I will start my life journey of
self-discovery, self-improvement, and self-fulfillment.
2. Yes, absolutely. With a university education, a person will have more freedom and therefore
more choices. This education experience provides unlimited potential. Moreover, a u niversity education provides the means for one to succeed. Not only will a person obtain knowledge and skills essential for his career development, but he will also develop an independent m ind and be able to make right decisions on his own.
3. I admire those who dropped out of university and yet have made fame for themselves by
achieving big goals. Some people use those successful college dropouts as counterexamples to show their belief that a person can succeed even without a university education. Chances are that most people do not have the same mind, talent, determination, or opportunities as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg did; therefore, they might not be able to achieve success without having a university education. In fact, a university education will equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills which will help them to succeed.
4. Nowadays education is getting more and more expensive, especially college education. And
there are people who choose to give up education because of the high cost. But without
education, one would not be able to acquire knowledge that an education will offer. In other words, they would be “ignorant ”. The result would be that ignorant people will suffer even more or pay even more for being so. It is true that education is expensive, but if you try
“ignorance”, the cost would be even higher
5. To sample widely and challenge my self, I am going to venture out of my comfort zone and do
what I have not had the courage to do. For instance, I will make friends with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. I will take a swimming class and learn how to swim. Iwil attend unconventional lectures, join student clubs, and try all kinds of food. Most of all, I will do whatever it takes to make the most of the four years and try to become a well-rounded
