My View on Family Education
Parents in China are paying more attention to the training of their single-child than ever before. Now, many children in city have family tutors and more and more children have to learn a lot before they go to school. This is mainly because parents want their children to become somebody or to live better when they grow up. In addition, single-child families have more money and energy than before to afford family training.
Family education has either advantages or disadvantages. The main advantage is that children can learn much and can develop themselves as early as possible, which are more helpful to leading them to success or make them superior to other children. The disadvantage lies in two. One is that too much family education may cause the children to lose their own ability of living and studying. The other is that children will have less time to play or to do their own favorite things. This may be harmful to the shape of children's charters.
In my opinion family education should have a proper degree. Either too much or too little family education will do great harm to children or even lead to opposite result. To find children’s talent or interest, then to cultivate them in those fields would be better than to force children to learn things parents consider important to their future.

Psychology plays an important role in confidence to conquer many difficulties. On the contrary, you may feel sad, frustrated throughout your life. So keep a healthy psychology is necessary.
There are at least three methods to hold a healthy psychology. First, try to control yourself when you are in a mess; for example, you are in depression or under stress. Second, believe in yourself after you think twice of the situation, when you have
to decide by yourself and have enough courage to take on any results of your own decision, meaning you need
self-confidence. Third, you should cultivate the ability of self-discipline, which makes you more sensible when you are really at the edge of the outbreak.

How to Deal with Cheating?
A large number of students tend to cheat in the exams. Some will copy the answers from their books. Some will talk with each other to share the right answers. Besides, some even write down the information on their palms of hands or on the arms.
There are several causes leading to their cheating. Firstly, some students just play time away and want to get high scores without paying efforts. Secondly, some are under great pressure and they fear to fail the exams. Finally, some are afraid that they will fall behind others in the exams. Once the students are found or caught cheating, the teachers should punish them severely and explain the
harm of cheating to them. There are at least two ways to eliminate cheating. In one way, we should explain the harm of cheating to the students. In another way, strict measures should be taken against cheating. As a result, the fair play in the exams can be achieved and students can pay attention to study instead of cheating.

My First Step in College
On the very first day in college, I was surprised to find the campus was so large. Believe it or not, I even lost my way to the dormitory when I returned from the dining hall.
During the first week, I missed my family so much that I telephoned them every day. In my dreams, I often found myself having a good time with my friends back in my hometown. To tell the truth, I couldn’t help crying every time I woke up.
By and by, I managed to shake off the feeling of being homesick and made a lot of friends. There were only 20 students in my class. New to each other at first, but we became good friends very soon. In fact, we seemed to be living in a big family.
In college, we had more free time than in the middle school. In the evenings, we were not required to study in the classroom. Instead, we could go everywhere and do whatever we want. I borrowed a number of books from the library and most of them were novels, which I had no chance to read in the middle school. Besides reading books in my spare time, I played table tennis for fun and made enormous progress.
I will never forget those special days when I took my first step in college.

Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic “How to Keep Fit，”. You should write at least 120 words according
to the outline given below in Chinese:
How to Keep Fit，
Health is far more important than wealth and wisdom. Good health enables
us to enjoy our life and achieve what we hope for in our career. On the contrary, poor health tends to deprive us of our interest in everything around us. How to stay healthy concerns everyone, though we have advanced medicine. When we discuss this, some fundamental principles should be brought in mind.
Firstly, it is very important for us to take more fruits and vegetables because they provide vitamins and they help in the process of digestion. Secondly, we have to keep a balanced diet and maintain regular eating habits. Proper nutrition is important for good health. Avoid food with lots of sugar and fat. Eat plenty of foods high in protein. Thirdly, we’d better do morning exercise every day, do sports frequently to make our bodies strong. Besides, we have to avoid too much work pressure. Getting too tired all the time may definitely weaken our immune system, making us get sick easily. Finally, we have to get rid of those bad habits that damage our health, such as drinking and smoking.
In conclusion, if we stick to things according to the aspects mentioned above, we’ll lead a healthy life and become as fit as a fiddle.

Attend Your Classes Regularly
Nowadays it is a very common phenomenon for some university students to be late for or even be absent from their classes. And still there are some students who slip out of the classroom before the class is over. Class attendance has become a thorny problem to both the students and the teachers.
In fact, it is very important for the students to attend their classes regularly. First, it will ensure you to catch up with the teachers in your learning. That is very helpful to you if you want to do a good job in your study. Second, attending classes regularly is a way of showing respect to your teachers, too. Your teachers will feel bad if the students do not attend their classes, which, in return, will affect their teaching and be no good for both the students. Third, attending classes regularly will help to form a good habit of punctuality, which is of great importance for the students to do a good job in the future.
Therefore, we university students should form the good habit of attending our classes regularly from now on. And some day we will benefit from it.
Working at Home
Back to a few decades ago, the idea of working at home would still be strange to us. However, working at home has become so popular nowadays that some even claim that we have ushered in the era of
Like all newly emergent
phenomena, working at home has brought about controversial arguments on its pros and cons. Some argue that thanks to the advancement of communication technology, which makes working at home possible, human beings are provided with an alternative way of working that enables them to work at ease, arrange their schedules
flexibly, and be freed from the waste of time in transportation to offices. However, there are also people who suggest that working at home
deprives a person of the chances of communicating with others through work, isolates him from the outside world, and discourages the spirit of
In my opinion, whether working at home is a good choice or not depends on one's
own personality. If a person enjoys working alone and performs his tasks best while working at home, he should not be denied such a choice.
College Life in Internet Era
A. College Life in Internet Era
Seeing so many college students using the Internet, some people feel quite
pleased and argue that the Internet has provided a more convenient way for students to study and communicate, but others feel much worried and argue that it has made some students neglect their studies.
In my view, the Internet does offer students an efficient way to study and exchange views. What’s more, the Internet may provide timely information which otherwise cannot be obtained. Through the Internet, students may also communicate with overseas students or professors whom they will probably never see.
Indeed some information on the Internet is not so decent or proper, but so long as students guard against such information, the Internet will certainly become an indispensable partner in their study.
For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic Surfing on Internet. Your composition must be based on the outline given below and you should write at least 120 words. Remember to write neatly on the Answer Sheet.
Nowadays, Internet is becoming very popular in all walks of life. On the one hand, statistics show that the number of people who apply to have access to Internet doubles every six months. On the other hand, Internet is employed in business, government agencies, and educational sections.
Internet brings us both advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are as the following. Firstly, we can communicate with our friends more rapidly and quickly. Secondly, Internet brings us fun. For example, many websites open chatrooms where we can talk with different people and make new friends. Finally, many businessmen are taking so-called E-business seriously on the net.
The Internet also has its disadvantages, just as a coin has two sides. In the first place, some people may linger too long on the net while neglecting their work or study. In the second place, some columns on the net may have a negative influence on the youth electronic commerce.
In my opinion, Internet becomes an integral part of our lives, but it is certainly not everything. Living in the 21st century, we need to make good use of the new tool-Internet, but it is just a tool, not life itself. We should not depend on it too much, nor should we ignore it deliberately.

The Harms of Internet Games
Nowadays Internet games have become very popular on campus. I am impressed most that my roommates often spend their evenings playing such games. Besides, more and more girls are engaged in them.
As is well known, Internet games can do much harm to us if we spend too much time on such things. Firstly, it is an enormous waste of time and we will have little time for our study. Secondly, those who play Internet games day and night will be harmed physically for lack of rest and sleep. Thirdly, many of these games are about violence and are not good for our spiritual development. The last but not the least, it will cost us much money.
In my opinion, we should deal with Internet games seriously. On the one hand, we can get some pleasure from these games if we don’t indulge ourselves
in them. On the other hand, we shouldn’t spend too much time, energy and money on such thing games because study takes the priority. In conclusion, we should try to avoid the harms of Internet games and live a more meaningful life.

Long-distance Education. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline given below in Chinese:
With the popularization of computer and information technology, long distance education, though a new comer, has developed at a rather surprising speed in China and proved to be an effective way of learning.
Thanks to distance learning, many people in the poor areas could enjoy equal opportunities as their counterparts in the richer areas. What is more, students in China are able to have access to those of the students abroad.
In spite of its enormous achievements, compared to that in rich countries long distance learning in China is still far from perfect and thus should be improved in the following two aspects. First, the needed facilities like computers,
information network for distance learning are still lacking in some areas and should be installed. Second, more knowledge and courses should be available

Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic The Advantages and Disadvantages of Dormitory Life. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline given below in Chinese:
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Dormitory Life
For a college student, the advantages of having roommates always outweigh the disadvantages. Those who object to having roommates claim that several people living together gives rise to some unpleasantness because every person has his own way. They also argue that, while living together, there is usually a lack of privacy. Although at first glance these arguments sound reasonable and appealing, they are not borne out by a careful consideration. When you and your roommates are at odds, it is the best time for you to learn how to adjust the relationships between yourself and the others. Solving trivial problems in the dorm will, in the long run, enrich your social experience and help you to understand other people’s feelings and learn to be considerate. The incomparable advantage is that it offers an excellent chance of cooperation and adequate colorful group activities. Planning a party single-handedly may be a easy. You can make a plan together; you may even start a musical band. All of these are invaluable throughout your life.
So as I see it, rooming together, as a precious opportunity for students living in dormitory, is the best way of learning cooperation and of understanding other people and the society in general.
