看题。老师辛苦啦


It is a hot topic that college students should give priority to career prospect when they choosing their major subject. I partly agree with the clim. It is important to analyze the situation depend on students' different background. Students in poverty have to consider career prospect first to release economic pressure in time.On the other hand, students have rich families can depend on their interests with family support and talent students should concentrated in their major area to make more contributions to the society.

Firstly, students in poverty face to economic pressure, they have to consider jobs needs first to release it. So it is realistic for them to choose an appropriate filed that can offer them jobs with a considerable salary. For example, many students have student loans to pay their tuition. In this way they have to find a stable economic source to repay it after graduation. Meanwhile, many areas,like arts and literature, do not have enough stable positions for graduations or the salary is limited. So students with economic pressure should choose a filed which can help them repay the student loans.

On the other hand, students from rich families can make the choice depends on their interests with family supports. Like the famous architect, Zaha Hadid, she changed her major area from mathematics to architect with family support. Her family company even invested in some projects in her earlier stage. Family supports can play an important role in their life, they need not to worry about the problem of food and clothing at least. And they can dig into the area they like without economic pressures.

In addition to talented student, they should insist on their major area even with help from society to make more contributions. The society development depends on technology improvement. Many scientists lived a poor life before they make an achievement.Society provided them scholarships to pay the tuition and many companies site foundation to support their researches. Without scientists' selfless work, some areas would face many barriers. Therefor talented students should choose the area by their gifts.

To conclusion, students should choose their major area base on their own situations. Student in poverty should face the realistic problems, students have family supports can choose depend on their own interests and talented students should not give up their researches with society helps.

Choosing a suitable subject to study in college is a crucial decision. There is a claim that job requirement of this field of subject should be considered as the basic condition. However, for being responsible to themselves, it is better for college students to take their interests and capabilities as the foundation to make the choice. Because these two factors decide width and depth of their future career which could also influence one’s life-time happiness.

Admittedly, as the competition of employment is increasing, job availability is a important factor need to be took into consideration. But it is never the basic one. It should be put after one’s interests and abilities, which are the two main reasons to lead the choice. There are some students who were forced to adjust their field of study to cater the market. They did avoid struggling to find a good job and got a better salary in the beginning of their career. But after five years or even longer, some of them are bored of their work because they lack interest, some of them found it was hard to promote because they were not capable of it. Without passion and power, job is just a job, far from career. These people who choose study for job now live for work.  

To choose a life career, one should never let alone his interests, the resource of passion, which could be the best support to overcome difficulties in the future path of career. Common people usually spend 8 hours in their work, some job requires even longer. Whether they are happy or not in the one third of a day decide not only their life quality but also how long they would persist on their career. If the job is beyond interest, people could quit easily because of the lure from another job or inadequate faith in their own job. In that case, 4 year college study in this field is worthless. So choosing a college major based on the job availability is groundless.

Besides the interest, people should get to know their own ability of what are they capable of doing and what are not. Some jobs need talent, only 4 years of studying is not enough to make a person equipment for them. Take art relevant job for example, if job market need many creative artists to paint or design, it is still not unwise to choose the art subject, unless the students really have some good sense of art. The reason is clear, college study cannot make an average student creative enough to be an artist. Choosing such kind of field to study, the most possibility is that, one cannot find a job after graduate even there are great need of it. First is know yourself, and then is to choose a field.

In conclusion, when deciding which subject to study in college, one’s interests and capabilities are the most important indicators to be evaluated. Working out of interest, it is easy to go far in this career; and focusing on what people are good at, they will perform better to get a higher proposition. Meanwhile, at any time, to respect oneself, job requirement should not be the first consideration.


issue 28/113/120/121/127/145

The surest indicator of a great nation is represented not by the achievements of its rulers, artists, or scientists, but by the general welfare of its people.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.

Nowadays, as the international competition is increasing, lots of countries acclaim they are a great nation to give their people more proud and try to gain more honor from other countries. But what is a great nation? There are different characteristics to evaluate, though the statement address the average welfare of people, leaders’ achievements of the nation and its science development are the top two indicators.

TS1: Admittedly, people’s welfare is considerable to evaluate a nation, but it is not a good indicator served as the greatness of a nation.
Eg1: rich nature resource could nurture a satisfied welfare like some primitive tribes, but without modernization no one would label them as a great nation

TS2: To be a influential nation, a great leader is a significant indicator, whose decision will make great effects on the nation’s policy and economy.
EG1: wise diploma could gain a good international status
Eg2: corrupted rulers make the profit of their own and caring nothing about their people

Ts3: achievement of science is also a indicator which should be taken into consideration, because science development promotes technology improvement making the nation powerful.
Eg1: army with high-tech weapon can protect a nation from others’ threaten
EG2: numbers of eminent scientist in America lead the world research in kinds of fields, which makes America the greatest scientific country in the world.

What is the right major for college students? There are two seemingly contradictory views on this issue. Some people argue that it is important for students to make the choice on the grounds of their own interest, while others suggest students major in subjects more availability of jobs in that field. I support the former view because the students’ major does determine their future career and the argument arbitrarily regard the major and job as the same.  

To begin with, it is significant to distinguish the major from the future career and realize that the fundamental capabilities of a promising person are universal rather than different between subjects. For example, the ability communication, time management, leadership could be applied in almost all fields. Students major in their interested subjects could also acquire those abilities. Leaders in big companies and even presidents come from various academic background but have some abilities in common.

What is more, with a good command of one’s interested field, his/her ability in one field could be applied in another job-related field, and somehow being more creative than others have limited knowledge in one field. For example, the aesthetic taste used in computer design. Steve Jobs…

Besides, it is dangerous to abide by the view that choosing a field of study on the availability of jobs in that field could promise the students’ future career. Subjects relevant to current jobs before one student entering college may be out-of-date when the students’ graduate. Every year, thousands of new jobs appear in this high-rapid world, and it is hard to say whether the specific ability relevant to a certain job could still be useful years later.

It is a common issue, confronted by all the senior high school graduates, that whether one should choose his major for the sake of the availability of jobs in that field. Indeed, considering a university student will devote four years in that field, it is exactly a big problem, which should be taken good consideration of. However, there has always been a great dispute over the question. Some people may take the job prospect as first priority, while others will not. In my opinion, although job prospect is essential to students, the job market is unstable, and a student may have other concerns. Therefore, one should not only consider the availability of job, when choosing which subject to study.

Admittedly, job prospect is an important factor to consider, which should not be ignored. Considering the fact that the majority of the family is not wealthy enough to support the student after graduation, the student must attempt to secure a job to support himself. Plus, the knowledge and skills he learnt in university is the most important factor for him to compete in job market. Indeed, a lot of students major in liberal arts, arts, and some basic subjects, will find it typically difficult finding a job. Thus, a lot of people will persuade the high school graduates to choose computer science, statistics, accounting and so forth, as their majors. However, this recommendation is also untenable in some respects.

The fundamental reason why I do not take job prospect as the first priority is that, no one can predict the future condition of the job market. It is known that, a student will spend four years in university before he plunges into the job market. Moreover, a career needs one to devote his whole life and passion. Therefore, it is unknown whether his major will still be competitive after four years. In the past, environmental science is a quite small subject. However, when the environmental problem is getting increasingly serious, the government will need a lot of personnel having a good knowledge of environment, to solve the problem. Similarly, although computer science is hot in today’s world, it is unknown before 20 years ago. Regarding the unpredictability, it seems to me that it is quite unwise to choose one’s major only based on the consideration of job prospects.

On contrary, as far as I am concerned, the students should consider their interest as the first priority. The reason is quite simple, because only if one has enough love and passion for a field, he can do great work in that field. It is hard to imagine that Bill Gates to be a successful lawyer, because he showed little passion for law, although lawyer is a good job in his time. In this term, as long as one has considerable passion and love in that field, he can find a job for himself. Despite the fact that liberal arts majors find difficult getting a job, it is still possible for them to be a great teacher, translator, journalist and so on. If all the people get to learn computer science or other so-called hot subjects, the world will be tragic, since it is impossible for all the people find their meaning of life in that work. After all, happiness and passion really matters. Otherwise, we will be the slave of work.

Based on the analysis above, I think one should not only consider job prospect when he is going to choose his major, although the availability of job is also an important factor to think about. However, before the student concerns the job, he should take his interests and passion into careful consideration. After all, choosing a major is not only choosing a job, but also choosing a field to devote his four years, even his whole life.

To address the issue raised in the statement, it is important to clarify what it means to be a great nation. I would consider a great nation if it has made positive impact to the development of the contemporary world. Given the identification of the greatmess, general welfare would not be nesissary represent greatness of the country, while achievments of its people in politics, art and sicence truly do.

TS1:Whereas there is no doubt that a nation where people enjoy high quality of life is admirable, the general welfare of the people does not nesessary indicate that the nation is great. When people have access to abundant material goods and high quality of education, they will be likely satistied with the high standard of living. But it does not follow that the nation have impressive contribution to the international community. Maybe the nation earn great reputation through being known for a comfortable country to live in, nevertheless, these wealthy countries do not deserve the label great nation,unless the world have benefit a lot from them being exist.

TS2. According to the identification, great nations are those that cultivate exceptional leaders in the fields of politics, art and science whose great works benefit not just their conpatriots, but people all over the world. Rulers of the great nations, always busy dealing with affairs of their own countries as well as concerned with international issues. The presidents of the United States, have devoted themselves to building up the country to be a super one, meanwhile, they had also act as leaders in the black liberation movement, which enfrichise the black from suffering being treated as slaveries around the world. Consequntly, no one will deny that the US deserve the honor being great nation for their relers’s impressive contribution to the world.

TS3:         In another way great nations have great influence in improving the development of the world through through scientsts’ imprssive patents and discoveries. The theoretical physicists in the US who were responsible for the early development of the Internet had mand wonderful achievements on the development of information society through their experiments of new technologies. These achivements contribute to great changes of life styles all over the world. With the advent and then popularity of the computer, officers complish the work more productively. Because of the Internet connecting the people from every corner on the earth, human community become closely associated regardless distant. Due to contribution made by the US scientists, the country earned the reputation of great nation, except for their rulers.

College students should base their choice of a field of study on the availability of jobs in that field.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position.

Going to college will be a very important timing in people’s life, because it will be a career start for most of them. Thus, students should be serious about how to choose their field of study in college. It is said that how their choice of a field of study should depends on the availability of jobs in that field. I’m not really agree with that because a lot of aspects should be considered such as students’ interests, the development trend of that field.

To start with, admittedly, the goals of study is mostly are finding a job after graduation. It is reasonable to search some information about the availability of jobs in that field in which students want to study. It is not easy to argue when people don’t want to choose a field because of there are not such many job opportunities for them. My brother change his field to study because he have to make a living. With his own study major, he can’t find even a basic job.

However, this is an few instance. choosing a field to study can’t be just narrow down at what jobs there are in society. What we need to do is be imaginary and broaden our mind. As society developing very fast than we thought, situation and the jobs change dramatically. For instance, when it comes to Internet, the job environment changes a lot. The number of newspaper and bookstore decreased, and the people who work for them are fewer and fewer. Does it means people who liking writing lose their job? Not at all. The electrical bookstores come out and people can even read electrical newspaper. Several people can change their job from corporeally to virtually. What I’m saying is, people choose literature field they want to study would not be changed by the availability of jobs.

Finally, Interests will be the best teacher for you study. It would be meaningless if you are not interested in your study even through there are tons of opportunities available. Take myself as an example, I spend 6 years to study construction management with the origin motivation that jobs are easy to hunt in construction field. However, after I graduated and find a job easily, I find out it is really tortuous to do something that you are not really enjoy. So I rethink about my career and make a new choice which are base on the availability of jobs in that area but the choice from my heart - to be a doctor.

To conclude, even though we should think about the availability job in the field your study, it should not be the only reason to choose your major. Still, you should consider what your interests are and the development trend in that career track.

Somebody acclaims that if we are going to evaluate a country's greatness, we should access whether its people enjoy a peaceful and happy life rather than the achievements of its leaders, artists or scientists. To address the issue raised in the statement, it is important to clarify what it means to be a great nation. From my perspective, a nation's greatness should be considered on whether it has made positive impact to the development of the contemporary world. I will illustrate my opinion from some certain circumstances from ancient times to modern times.

First, it is desirable that the people live wealthy and happy lives, while the welfare of people can not be the sign of a nation's greatness, for the reason that high living level can not represent that the country is influential in the world.
eg the country is rich in the natural resources such as gasoline.

In modern society, there are often some excellent leaders in the powerful and influential country. What they have achieved brought great influence not only their own countries but also to the whole world.
eg  Edison invented bulbs to light the whole world.
    Nobel Prizes for those exceptional scientist.

Moreover, take a historical view, greatness of a nation is often represented in the scientific inventions or huge influences that be put on other countries. This is because of the wealth and power often be clustered in a some proportion of people.
eg  China, The Four Great Inventions

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.


According to the statement, the first question that is necessary to ask is what is a great nation. As far as i am concerned, a nation that makes great contribution to the world in the aspects of science and technology, or the peace of the world can be said great. Therefore, i argue that It's not available to use the general welfare of its people as the surest indicator of a great nation and i will give some examples to prove my point.

To begin with, the great general welfare of one country's people can't represent a nation great.Take an example of Irap.As we all know, Irap is famous for its abundant oil and its people are very rich by selling a great amount of oil to other countries. However, with the decreasing number of oil output, Irap wants to raisw the price of oil to earn more money that causes serious threat to other countries' economic devopment. Therefore, no one thinks that Irap is great in the world  although it has a great general welfare of its people.

Sometimes, we say one country or nation is great not because of its general welfare but its great achievements in science and technology that make great contribution to the development of the world. For example, America is considered a great nation by people all over the world for its outstanding achievements in science and technology, such as the internet invented by americans. In the contemporary society, internet has a close relation with people's life and shorten the distance among people all over the world that can help the companies make business with others from other countries on the internet . There is no doubt that internet lets people's life more convenient and makes great contribution to the globalization of the world's economy. It goes without saying that America is a great nation for its achievements of science and technology.

Apart from the achievements of science and technology, contribution to the peace of the world can also be considered an indicater of a great nation. I can come up with any better examples than China. China has sent troops of protecting the world peace many times to some places where are full of wars to protect the world peace. Besides, China donate a great amount of manpower and material resources to many developing countries in tha Africa to help them develop the economy and shorten the gap between the developing countries and the developed countries . What China does to the world peace is admitted and respected by all countries and sets a great image for China to the world.

In conclusion, if people have different definitions of a great nation, opinions on this issue will vary greatly among people. When we define a great nation as a nation's gteat contribution to the world's development and peace, the achievements of science and technology and protecting the world peace can represent the surest indicator of a great nation. However, the general welfare may not appropriate or useful as an indicator of a great nation because some factors that determine the general welfare are opposite to the definition of a great nation.

采用方法1和方法2 相结合将general welfare 拓展为literature, economy, politic 三方面
TS1
One of the most remarkable reflection of a great nation is literation, in other words, the national publics would like to appreciate the culture in the nation.
Eg: the long-lasting china Confucius culture acceptted by many dynasties over 2000 years
Reason: People in the Ancient China accept and inherit the traditional culture just demonstrates the power of the ancient China is so strong that its culture had last so long.

TS2
The great nation must have the ability to dominate on the economy of the general people.
Eg: The most sucessful company must satisfy the employees by supplying sufficient money to make their ends meet.
Reason: A nation is like a complex company, the excellence of the nation must be based on the condition that public can enjoy the economical abundance and live a happy life.

TS3
It is the enough political rights for the ordinary people that indicates the greateness of a nation.
Eg:The nation is a political association based on the public in it.
Reason: The public is the basement of the nation, only the nations which gurantee the public the necessary public political rights can them have the foundamental power to achieve further development.

本题疑惑主要在于举例,
可能是我考虑的时候对于great没有做好限定,如果要从政治,经济文化等角度分别分类的话,感觉举例子不太好举,因为要从国家层面上,举国家例子
1. 如果举例子时通过类比形式,比如把国家比作一个大组织,把组织的逻辑过程演绎到国家层面可以吗
2. 如果不举例子只是通过论证方式会不会造成不完整

College students should base their choice of a field of study on the availability of jobs in that field.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position.


In the statement, the author thinks that college students ought to study in the feild that is easy to find jobs. It seem to make sense, as some one may think the jobs determines our future. But before agree the author's view, we also need to consider our attribute, the validity of the study and the nessesity to study just for a job.

For one thing, if we just make a decision only by the outer conditions, it is not so proper sometimes. In this claim, the author hope we could choose those fields by the availability of those fields, but we also should make sense that if we have the ability to delve the fields.we need to learn ourselves better to know if we are proper to this field. Otherwise,we may have a mistake to choose this field, as we may get a good grade and get a nice job, but we may be not equal to the job. Then, it may be difficult for us to have the room of prompting(promoting).  In this condition, we may feel tired and even earned less than the field of we like.
(我知道我写偏了)
Moreover, we also should check the validity of the so-called research which tells us which field are more possible to find a job. The need of kind of jobs could be vary in some years. For example, the teacher in the past in China is a job that have a big need, and at that time many students choose the field of teaching to study. To get a job of a teacher, they even forsake the choice of studying in college. However, as you can see, we have plenty of teachers now. In some distance, they indeed have a job of teaching, but how could we say that they have a better life than most of the other students? Job is something relate to belief, not equal to money, at all.
(又写偏了,例子应该举以前好找工作但现在不好找工作的xx,但是想不出来有什么工作
Granted that the field truely hot and have a big briliant future, and we also seems to be equal to the field, we still need to ask ourselves, if I like the job? Some people always underscore that a good job is so important for us that we cannot choose the job that we like but not so profitable. However, If we just don't like a job, how can we make benefit for the society? In fact, every job has its distinctive value, if we could delve in it and make a perfect job in our own field , it is just a bone for our society and for ourselves.)
In conclusion, I believe that we shouldn't make a decision about the study field that have a influence to our whole life just only because this SHOULD BE benefit to us. We should think twice about the ablity of us and our   own like.Even if we want to study in a field that could help us find a good job, we still need to learn the validity of the prospect.
