We are very honored to have Prof. Richard Gilbert from Harvard University to give us a lecture on American Liberal Education. Prof. Gilbert, who graduated from Standford in 1979 and received his Ph.D. in Education from Harvard in 1984, has been conducting research and teaching international students in Harvard for more than 20 years. He has become a leading expert in this field and has published several books and numerous papers on liberal education and education policy. His humorous and thought provoking speech will surely benefit all the audience.
The lecture will be given in the English Department Conference Hall from 2:30 to 4:30. p.m., Friday afternoon, November 16, 2007. All the teachers and students are welcome.
Dear Mr. President,
Please do allow me to apologize for imposing upon you. As Secretary General of University Student Union, I am writing to you to express our concern about the canteen service on our campus.
We are considerably concerned about the pricing and quality of the foods, the dining environment, and the service of the staff. We think the foods served are too highly priced for full-time students, and they need be cheaper, and of more varieties and better quality. We
also find the dining environment less than satisfactory with the noise from outside the dining hall and the stink from the kitchen sewage. Also, urgent measures need be taken about the flies in the dining hall. We also believe that the canteen staff should be given a workshop on how to perfect their professionalism.
Please let me apologize again for having imposed upon you. A kind consideration of this letter will be highly appreciated, and I will feel greatly obliged if you could possibly privilege me with your kind feedback.
Sincerely, Li Ming
No matter how big one thing is, it is composed of numerous tiny component parts, and vise versa, no matter how small one thing is, it is always a component part of something larger. Although a drop of water or a grain of sand is negligible, however, innumerable of them can make up the vast ocean and land. Although we always tend to be neglectful of passing time of individual minutes, yet it is exactly what eternity of time is made of. That's also the case with our life. As the Chinese saying goes, “Do not fail to do good even if it's small; do not engage in evil even if it's small.” The gradual quantitative accumulation of tiny ones combined can bring about substantial qualitative changes. Even the above heaven of Eden that seems impossible can be made come true on our earth so long as we contribute every little deeds or words of kindness and love. An integral whole consists of component parts and meanwhile consists in them. So never skip over the trivial matters and seek for the larger ones. In that case we can never make it.
Task II (20 marks)
Directions: For this part, you are required to write a composition on The Anti-Addiction System. You should write at least 120 words and please write it on the Answer Sheet.
Now in China the anti-addiction system and a “real name checking” system have been adopted in Cyber cafes to prevent players under 18 from becoming addicted to online games. What do students think about this system? What is your opinion about this?
The Anti-Addiction System
Now in China, the adoption of the anti-addiction system and a “real name checking” system in netbars has led to a heated debate among students. Some say that students' self-discipline is very limited and now at least 14 percent of the urban teenage players are addicted to the Internet and some children even repeatedly disappear from home to spend their nights at local Internet cafes, and play truant from school also. Therefore, they have failed quite a few school exams. In this sense, the new policy can prevent minors developing online addiction.
Others claim that the anti-addiction system is only a means to an end and cannot remove the root of the online addiction completely and they believe the
key is to guide the minors to improve their self-control and balance their work and play.
In my opinion, the latter point hits home for me because it cuts to the chase. However, education is a long process and takes time, which means before education produces effects on children, some supplementary measures should also be taken to speed up the process and the anti-addiction system is one of them.
After graduated,people are always faced with two alternatives:working for themselves or someone else.Both of the two sound reasonable.While I tend to be in favor of the later.
From my perspective,working for myself.definitely is worse than working for someone else.Because you will have to deal with plenty of problems and risks by yourself,if you choose to start your own business.Lacking of experience,financial support and so on can always be fatal to your career.On the contrary,if you find a job in a proper company,there’s no need for you to worry any more,and you just need to work hard.Whats more,when working for others,you will acquire how to cooperate with others and increase your sense of responsibility,which are both great qualities.
All in all,working for someone else is equipped with much more advantages than for yourself.It can not only prevent yourself from unnecessary risks but also promote you improving yourself.
