The university wants to provide student more entertainments and three choices provided below. which do you prefer and why
· A theater performance by the student actors
· A concert provided by professional musician
· A lecture from a professor
Well, as a student, I will choose a theater performance by the student actors. For one thing, this kind of activity will improve their cooperation skills. To be more specific, a theater performance includes the whole process of organizing, participating, and promoting an event. Whether the student director or the actor take the responsibility to achieve his/her duty, so this is a great opportunity for them to learn how to deal with other people. Moreover, a performance could greatly inspire them to be more creative. I mean, in order to make a good show, students may have lots of difficulties to cope with, so they have to be flexible to face any emergency. As a result, they may come up with lots of new ideas to make it. Because of these two reasons, I believe this is the best choice.
Friends may disagree with each other and still maintain friendship. Do you agree with or disagree with this idea why?
Of course I agree with this idea. Firstly people are bound to be different. We have various family background as well as education background even though we are friends. So it is quite naturally that there come up different ideas toward one problem. For example I like watching movie in the movie theater while my best friend Amy hate sitting in the dark place. But I never require her to go with me; we are still very close friends. Also, the friend who holds a different attitude with me sometimes could inspire me to think from another way. Maybe a very sharp discussion can lead me to an inspiring idea. After all, the experiences and knowledge of one person is limited. For me, I like the friend who are differ from me.
When it comes to the decrease of sea turtle’s population, the reading puts forward three solutions to prevent this tendency.However, all these three solutions are regarded as invalid in the listening.
First, the idea that building a metal fence will work. Not as it puts in the reading, the listening argues that the mental fence will hinder the development of magnetic field which exerts influence on the growth of the little sea turtles. The listening further illustrates that sea turtles rely on magnetic field to navigate, find food and mates as well as find a suitable place to lay eggs. Without a fully developed magnetic field, they cannot live and reproduce.
As to the second measure of a ban of the plastic bags, the listening still refutes it. As a matter of fact, there are already thousands of plastic bags in the sea, which, although decomposing into small pieces, still pose great threat to sea turtles. Therefore, the ban of plastic bags is not the point.
Lastly, the reading calls on to transform the traditional fishing nets into those catching only fish but not sea turtles. Unfortunately, the third solution is not able to work well. The listening explains that the fishermen will refuse to use the transformed fishing nets for they will catch fewer fish and thus get a decreased income. Even though relevant laws are enacted, the fishermen will apply the traditional fishing nets before replacing them with the transformed fishing nets on shore.
You are helping to select a leader for a student organization or a group. Do you think a person's honest is the most important characteristic for being a leader?
Regardless of the increasingly complicated relationships among modern people, honesty is still regarded as the most cherished characteristic when it comes to evaluating others around us. Therefore, it is not beyond our expectation that someone gives priority to honesty when selecting a leader for a student organization. According to my preference and experience, there are other two factors that are more worth noticing.
To begin with, the ability to plan and organize is the most essential characteristic for a student leader for the sake of a smooth progress of the student affairs. In other words, competent leaders are those with detailed plans and clear goals in their mind. Otherwise, the whole group will easily get lost on the way and lose the impetus to strive for their common goals. By making a detailed plan and carrying it out step by step, a group leader is not only capable of pushing forward and complete the preset projects but also able to keep the team members away from distrust and anxiety. For example, if a leader of English Association is going to conduct an English speaking contest, he is required to figure out the concrete process of a speaking contest, the cost related to the applied facilities as well as the assignment for each individual in the group.
Besides, whether the candidate for the student leader masters the art of communication is also worth noticing. It is no denying that the leader of a student organization is exposed to various chances to interact with group members encompassing students of distinct personality traits. Therefore，it is of paramount importance for the leader to be possessed with the ability to relate well with others. More importantly, only by well coordinating the relations among the team members can the student leader be capable of ensuring the smooth progress of the organization. To illustrate, if conflicts arise among team members during the process of crucial projects, the leader has the obligation to properly settle the disagreement by skillfully calming them down with maybe witty words and then take measures to cope with the problems.
Admittedly, it is indisputable that honesty should not be neglected in terms of choosing a leader. After all, honesty has a lot to do with obtaining trust and creating a harmonious atmosphere among the whole group. It is natural that people usually rely on an honest person without reservation. Nevertheless, it is still not wise enough to regard it as the most crucial factor in terms of choosing a leader for student organizations for honesty does not testify to one’s ability and competence in dealing with group projects.
To sum up, taking the ability of planning and organizing as well as communication skills into consideration, it is too rash to put honesty first when choosing a leader for student organizations.
