TWE Essays 21292 21 Some people believe parents maybe a very important teacher for children but will be taken place by teacher after children go to school however I believe parents always are the best teacher no matter how many knowledge children have acquired from school the reasons why I think so go as follow First children always imitate their parents from birth so the parents influence on children is great For example researchers said that parents expression can influence the growth of their children character if parents always smell and watch their child while he is playing the child confidence will be greater than other child whose parent always leave him alone at home Second parents are also the best teacher for children in emotional area For example If a child feel oppression or feel frustrated in school he always not talk to his teacher at this time parents can help him and child are also willing to tell his inner feeling to his parents Third although child get many knowledge from teacher basic skills in his whole life are come from his parents For example our basic language skill basic realize skill and even basic sport skill are all acquired from parents Because of this basic skill parents teach their child the influence of parents will follow the childs whole life All in a word the effect parents take on the childs education process is greater than any teachers in school they are the best teacher Essay ID 261 This is a 5 point essay Topic 2 Parents influence greatly their children for a lifetime I think people are molded by two factors family and the society that they are in From birth humans are influenced by the surrounding people for their characteristics Parents take a big role in bringing up children which affects their lives for a long time In early infanthood babies are looking to moms and dads to learn basic manners to be accepted in society Some of these manners include not running around in restaurants or hitting other kids As they grow up they learn more from parents about social etiquette which makes them more suitable to live in society Children tend to look to their parents for role models knowingly or unknowingly Besides parents can also affect childrens study habits Children of doctors lawyers investment bankers and other professionals see their mothers and fathers work a lot of time reading books and punching keyboards even at home They are showing their children how to study by their own behavior However parents can also be a bad example for their kids It is difficult for children who have abusive parents to lead a normal childhood and is possible that they may become similar to their abusive parents when they grow up In this sense the parents negative role in shaping the childrens personality cannot be emphasized more In conclusion parents are the best teachers for their children They leave big marks on their childrens lives and are therefore more influential teachers than any others they may have in their lives Essay ID 324 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom
TWE Essays 22292 22 Topic 2 Who are the best teachers in our life In my opinion the first teachers we have in our lives in most cases are our parents They teach us to walk to speak and to have good manners before we reach quotthe real world quot More than even the professional teachers that we have in school parents are generally the most involved in the development and education of children The main reason for my view is that our parents are the best teachers at the beginning of our lives which actually corresponds to the parents role in nature Parents are most committed and involved in teaching their children they have a kind of instinct to sacrifice a part of themselves for the betterment of their children They love us and have great patience while passing down their knowledge to us They wish us a success and thus will not teach us bad things And of course implicit learning occurs when children unconsciously copy some of their parents habits and styles of behavior Also during the second stage of child development adolescence parents can still be in the best position to offer advice even though the children might not accept it In this case perhaps the childs friends would be the best teachers Adolescents are notoriously rebellious in many cultures and may automatically reject any advice from their parents My first marriage for instance was solely a matter of doing the opposite when my parents tried to intrude in offering their advice So in such matters parents should be much more flexible and be rather the partners with their children So we can see that being a teacher of growing child become more and more complicated case as the time passes and many parents are simply not able to meet the increased demands On the other hand I would say that parents are not professional teachers and they tend to be very biased by their love of their children So wishing good things and an easy life may prevent children from maturation In any case parents usually can present only one viewpoint of the world while good teaching should be based on different attitudes Thus when children go to school and have a great diversity of teachers they learn much more than their parents could probably give them Furthermore once our parents get older they become more conservative and cannot always be objective in regard to modern trends and fashions Thus we need to take their advice with caution during that period However some kind of intuition which I believe shared between relatives about what everybody needs and great love which exists in a families still makes our parents very good teachers and advisers at any time In short while parents are not the ideal teachers and well-rounded children will generally need a great diversity of teachers in their lives in order to have a more accurate view of the world parents are generally the most committed of all teachers and have the greatest emotional investment in their children and their future Essay ID 74 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 3 Man through the ages has undergone many changes from a period when he hunted for his food to the present era when man is dependent on preprocessed foods During this period not only has man changed his mode of eating but his whole lifestyle as well In pursuit of more in this competitive world man no longer has time as he once had He is caught in a race against the clock A person who finishes more in lesser time is considered more efficient This pressure to do more in less time has affected his eating habits as well and as a result man no longer has time to cook food Early mans only objective was to seek food to sustain him and his family Nowadays finding food has taken a back seat to other priorities such as career and education
TWE Essays 23292 23 Food is no longer of that importance This is not an encouraging trend People are too dependent on preprocessed or precooked food which no longer has the freshness it once had Such foods loose their mineral and vitamin content and are not as healthy as fresh food That is why the number of diseases is also rising People have also shifted to high calorie content food like French fries pizzas and ice cream etc which is causing obesity fatigue etc As man is becoming busy and too involved in his busy schedule he has no time even to take care of his own personal needs Furthermore cooking is an art which is dying out People once enjoyed cooking It was a means of eliminating stress and tension People were once able to relax during this time and reflect on their lives People may tend to argue that by using precooked and preprocessed food they are efficiently using time and can use this precious time saved for other purposes But is it really worth it This is a question whose answer can invite much speculation about whether by saving this little time we are inviting lots of other problems which could easily be avoided It is actually making our lives not simpler but more complicated We have lost many of the simpler things in our lives like the simple acts of selecting our evening meal preparing it and enjoying it with our loved ones and we are worse off for it Essay ID 336 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 3 Nowadays wherever we turn our gaze we can see different types of food that are easier to prepare For instance we can buy frozen foods in a supermarket and just prepare it in a couple of minutes whereas before it could have taken us maybe hours to prepare this kind of meals I would accept that this so-called improvement has changed our lives but I believe that there are some drawbacks as well It is true that these kinds of food do not involve hard work to prepare but food that is easy to prepare generally has some artificial ingredients mixed in it that makes it quoteasy-to-cookquot If we take time to read the ingredients we would definitely come across words like preservatives or artificial flavorings It was just a couple of days ago that I came across a newspaper article which stated that someone was poisoned because he ate this type of food He was hospitalized for almost a month Not having to cook has also taken the fun out of cooking Cooking is an art but in todays world this is no more true People are so busy with their work that they just rely on this simple foods The invention and production of this foods have made people lazy not only for cooking but also for a well family get-together It was not like former times when families would sit together and eat freshly baked food Instead they are getting these artificial things with minimal nutrients in them Cooking in the yesteryears was much better than todays People would spend more time in the kitchen preparing the food in the way that they liked it This brought families closer together and also contributed to the high quality and nutrition of the food Granted people are busier nowadays and do not have as much time as they did in the past but I believe that people have forgotten the importance of healthy fresh food and of the time a family spends together preparing the food So I would say that having food that is easy to prepare has had many disadvantages Essay ID 325 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom
TWE Essays 24292 24 Topic 3 It can not be doubted that our eating style has encountered a revolutionary change in the last few decades It is the change in the type of food that has had the greatest influence Not only have the recipes of certain food types have been altered but also absolutely new ones have been created Examples include yet are not restricted to beef hamburgers potato chips and cola drinks All of these changes contribute to making food preparation as fast and easy as possible It cannot be neglected that modern cooking facilities play a dramatic role in this trend Some people regard this trend as a spoiler of our lives Their argument focuses on two main points First many newly emerged types of food have not the essence of a quotcomplete mealquot as defined by nutritionists To add to the problem these food types are often served alone In fact there are many medical reports warning people from depending upon such fast meals in their food Other reports indicate a high potential of malnutrition among those who are quotaddictedquot to the common duet of burgers and cola Second the advantage of gathering family members around a meal at home is lost Fast prepared food types are usually eaten outside home With the absence of regular family meetings relationships are likely to be weaker Others think that fast prepared food types do improve our style of life This opinion comes especially from busy people working wives and younger people They believe that we have many things in life more important than eating Time spent on food preparation is considered wasted by them Wives will have more time to take care of their families souls not just stomachs Family relationships will get stronger Business men and women will have more time to concentrate on their business without worrying about food arrangements In general people will have a greater opportunity to take care of their minds and hearts Reports estimate the time spent on food arrangements as a large percentage of our lives I agree with that food preparation should take its necessary time and care Otherwise the time saved in food preparation can lead to longer times of headache or even of staying in hospitals suffering from malnutrition Essay ID 328 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 3 The twentieth century has brought with it many advances With those advances human lives have changed dramatically In some ways life is worse but mostly it is better Changes in food preparation methods for example have improved our lives greatly The convenience of preparing food today is amazing Even stoves have gotten too slow for us Microwave cooking is much easier We can press a few buttons and a meal is completely cooked in just a short time People used to spend hours preparing an oven-cooked meal and now they can use that time for other better things Plus there are all kinds of portable prepackaged foods we can buy Heat them in the office microwave and lunch at work is quick and easy Food preparation today allows for more variety With refrigerators and freezers we can preserve a lot of different foods in our homes Since technology makes cooking so much faster people are willing to make several dishes for even a small meal Parents are more likely to let children be picky now that they can easily heat them up some prepackaged macaroni and cheese on the side Needless to say adults living in the same house may have very different eating habits as well If

TWE Essays 27292 27 Of course building a factory also has advantages to some extent For example it will bring more working opportunity for local people and also it will help developing the local economics But comparing with the disadvantages I strongly oppose the idea to build a factory near my community Essay ID 79 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 5 I support the idea that a factory to be built near our community I list my reasons as follows Firstly a new factory near our community helps to improve living standard of people in our community The factory will employ a lot of workers As a consequence the unemployment rate will drop significantly Many people in our community will find a job in the factory As peoples income increases they will be able to spend more money on their food clothing and leisure time and the quality of life will be increased Secondly a new factory will bring prosperity to our community The tax collected from a factory is an important source of revenue for our town As people have higher income income tax collected will also be increased The town will be able to spend more money on infrastructures and other development Moreover in order to accommodate more workers more homes and stores will be needed This will boost real estate development in our community Some people say that a factory would bring smog and pollution and destroy the quality of the air and water in town This is not the truth Modern technologies have made todays factories technology intensive and brought pollutions to the minimum There are also worries that the social structure of this community will be changed and the traditional life will be affected We should understand that society needs to evolve and we cannot always stay in the old time Of course there will be some drawbacks of building a new factory here But in my opinion the benefits outweigh the dangers I strongly support to build a factory here and hope that others feel the same way Essay ID 78 Topic 5 If a large factory is going to be built near your community is it good or bad Its a quite difficult question to answer Because there are many aspects to take into your consideration the advantages and the disadvantages Lets talk about that First a large factory especially a large chemical factory is quite harmful to our environment when it is built near our community It will affect our daily life a lot All the chemical factories will produce a lot of waste and most of the wastes are harmful to the environment including poisonous gas and liquid Some of them can not be entirely broken down If they are released into the air or the river it will affect our health And also the factory may produce a lot of noise The environment we want to live in is a quiet and peaceful one so the noise will be quite boring And yes noise also affects our health Still one thing a factory can be very dangerous Because a fire or a explosion may break out in the factory If its very near our home its quite dangerous But in other hand a factory may be a good news to us It can provide more jobs for us especially
TWE Essays 28292 28 for the young people in our community Since the factory is near its so convenient to go to work and the factory will get more chances to our area It will help to develop our area So if the factory can bring us a lot of chances we will agree to build one But the most important things are 1 Build the factory in a safe distance from our community not too near 2 Make sure that the factory can deal with the waste properly Do not release the poisonous gas into the air and not release the waste water into the river nearby 3 Make sure the security guard in the factory works very well Essay ID 466 Topic 5 A company has announced that it wishes to build a large factory near our community To be frank I have mixed emotions about this Obviously there are some advantages having such a factory nearby For example it can provides more job opportunities and many people may work in the factory What is more it also gives a good chance for the development of other business in our community such as shops theatres and restaurants Furthermore the products the factory manufactures will improve our quality of living On the other hand there are some disadvantages building a factory here First it will disturb the quiescence of our community Once the factory is set up a lot of people will rush into our community to work and the road will get crowded To transfer the raw materials the factory needs there will be many trucks coming and going through the streets and the noise will disturb residents and it is unsafe for our children who always play freely in the streets before Second the factory will produce many waste products each day and there will be much waste water coming out from the factory and it will pollute our rivers We do not want to have to see hundreds and thousands tons of waste piled near our houses and we do not want to see our nearby rivers turning into black dishes either After weighing the advantages and disadvantages I decide to oppose to set up such a factory near our community because we need quiet surrounding blue sky and clean rivers Essay ID 423 This is a 5 point essay Topic 5 Weather it is beneficial to build a large factory near our community is a prevalent topic undergoing serious debate Two different opinions obviously exist to support and to oppose After pondering the opinions from several aspects personally I agree with the idea that it is beneficial to build a large factory near our community By comparing the advantage and disadvantage they will get people judge which role they should hold In my opinion the advantage in this case is superior than the disadvantage we can see it below The main reason for my propensity for the choice is that the factory will supply lots of employment opportunities for society especially the people of the community nearby The
TWE Essays 29292 29 unemployment will decrease and the peoples standard of living will increase in some degree so no doubt people will accept the factory willingly and rapidly Another reason why I prefer to the statement lies in the fact that with the developing of the factory many other establishments will be founded around it These establishments will make the lives of the people of the community more convenient For example drugstores restaurants even hospital new bus stop will be built up People here will enjoy the convenience the factory brings It is undeniable that the factory will bring some problems such as the noise air pollution Whatever these disadvantage will be limited into a low level so that they can not contaminate the environment of the community From what has been discussed above we can safely draw the conclusion that it is beneficial to build a large factory near our community Essay ID 496 This is a 5 point essay Topic 6 Everything in the universe is in constant change And everything needs continual improvement if the ever changing and increasing demands of humankind are to be met If I am ever given the chance to change one important thing about my home town it would be internet service Needless to say that nothing generally revolutionized the way we live as internet in the past decade Thus an improvement in this vital service would mean an even more unheard betterment to the people in my home town It is said that information is power True saying indeed I can envision how everything in my home town could improve dramatically if the internet service in it were made free fast and staying out there like electricity telephone or water all the time One thing a fast free and reliable internet service could improve in my home town is the way people work If there is a this said service people in my home town must not necessarily commute to a far place to do their job This in turn would mean less traffic jams spacious work place more time for family and recreation and so on The way people learn would be another important thing that a fast free and reliable internet service could better in my home town People will have the chance to go through tremendous and different information resources in a very small amount of time They apparently will also take less time to share it This assures a more fulfilled life for my home town people Since its advent internet touched every part of our life It in a dazzling way improved the way we do business learn and communicate A change in internet service implies good way of living for every one in my home town Essay ID 331 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 6 If I could change one important thing about my hometown it would be air pollution problem and I will give the following reasons to explain why I want to solve the problem The first and most important reason is that I hope that my hometown can become a beautiful city As an old industrial city my hometown has made a great deal of contribution for the countrys economic development At a result the natural environment of the city has been badly damaged The forest has disappeared the mountains have become bald and the most awful thing is that the air quality becomes more and more worse People seldom see the blue sky during most time of
TWE Essays 30292 30 year Another reason why I want to change my hometowns air pollution situation is that the citys development needs clean and tidy environment to attract investors Nowadays people have come to know that the citys environment which is so called software facility of the city plays an important role in the citys future For example due to the fact that the environment of the city is very poor many local students who pursue their study out of the city would rather find themselves a job in other cities than coming back to their hometown after they graduated In addition nowadays people have paid more and more attention to their health If air pollution problem cannot be solved as quickly as possible peoples requirement for a healthy body will never be realized In my mind changing air pollution will apparently be my first choice if I can change one important thing about my hometown Fortunately people in my hometown are gradually aware of the serious problem Essay ID 80 Topic 6 If i could change one thing about my hometown i would like to build up some useful and advanced facilities for their use A modern library an advanced broad band system and an integrated gym may bring a lot of changes to people living in my hometown and keep them up with the latest information and technology In my opionion a modern library in my hometown can provide a good environment for the local people to study and upgrade themsevles There are a lot of newspaper magazines and reference reading and learn to get knowledge from books quotKnowledge is strenghquot Knowledge can give us guidance to overcome problems we meet in the daily life To popularize the broad band at home also is a quick access to Internet and movie channel which can give people much more chances to choose their entertainment Because of the Internet our lives have been changed a lot no matter whether we accept or not We can read news buy items from e-commerce companies send a free e-card to our friends mail our beautiful photos to anyone we like or watch the movies online Anyway Internet brings us obvious changes Additionally broad band also can provide movie channel to users Can you imagine that you can watch the movies you like just by cliking one button It provide different types of movie for you to choose People have more choice to enjoy the life and advanced technology at home Besides important information we need to know and advanced technology we use we also need to do exercise to keep our healthy life This is the reason why i want to set up an integrated gym in my hometown Through doing many various exercises such as swimming jogging playing badminton or tennice peopple can enhance their ability to resist the virus and enjoy the life happily Furthermore people who often do exercise have positive attitudes towards life although when facing difficulties This is really what i hope to see In summary i want my hometown to be a city equipped with a modern library an advanced broad band system and filled with people liking exercise loving life and possessing positive attitudes towards life Thus i want to build up above-mentioned facilities first Essay ID 270
TWE Essays 31292 31 Topic 6 With the developement of my hometown in the past few years the population is expanding very fast The city is expiriencing not only a higher birthrate than ever but also waves of immigration The streets in the city are crowed or even jamed during the rush hours If I could change one thing about my hometown I would develope an advanced public traffic system In order to hold such an exploding population the city has extended miles by miles without much plan It is common for people to travel from the southmost part to the northmost part of the city to go to work everyday They have to spend three hours or more on the way they go to work and come home Eight hours work is a heavy burden while people have to spend hours before and after the work A subway running through or around the city can solve the problem People could live further away from the downtown without worrying about spending too much time on the way Some people buy their own car or take a taxi to work everyday Its really expensive for most of the people in the city They cant afford paying so much on traffic fares Many civil engineering experts advocate that sharing a public traffic system is the most efficient way People could reduce their fares a lot by using the public traffic system and they can spend the money on some other things Even there are more and more people who can afford buying a car or taking taxi everyday It is still suggested to using the public traffic system Because the road developement can never keep up with the demand of the increasing cars the cars may jam on the roads during rush hours Usually the speed of the car in that time is no higher than a bycicle And pollution is another concern So many private cars running in the city will bring us an environmental problem On the other hand the pollution from the public traffic system is much lighter All in all an advanced public traffic system time efficient cost efficient and pollution preventing This is the trend of advanced cities Essay ID 256 This is a 5 point essay Topic 6 I am from Arroz e Feijao a small town in the northeast of Brazil Building a factory in there will bring a lot of advantages and disadvantages but I believe that Arroz e Feijao will mostly benefit from the building of a new factory because it is largely populated by poor people and the factory would bring many benefits to this small town However of course a factory has disadvantages as well As you know factories usually bring pollution If this factory is not managed very effectively and efficiently according to specific rules its prone to polluting the local air and water Whats more factories usually make noise Beside clean drinkable water and fresh air an ideal community should be quiet If the factory cannot maintain this situation to the community it will not last long A factory that is too noisy or pollutes too much will eventually be relocated to a new area On the other hand a factory could bring a lot of benefits to the community So I would support the plan to build a factory to my community for all the reasons I will describe below First of all the factorys construction will surely improve the local infrastructure To run smoothly the factory will have to have a steady reliable supply of water and electricity Some old pipes will be changed and some facilities will be renovated The residents living standard get improved as a

TWE Essays 33292 33 with the characters on quotSeinfeldquot or quotFriendsquot than go chat with our own neighbors Imaginary people have exciting lives Is it any wonder that some people would rather live a fantasy life than their own Movies and television also can make people more violent The more we see violent acts on television the less sensitive we become to them Eventually violence doesnt seem wrong We may even commit violent acts ourselves This is especially true because we dont always realize that violence has consequences Actors can be killed and come back for another movie Sometimes we confuse that with reality We forget that killing someone is permanent Of course watching movies and television can also be good for us It can give us a broader window on the world For example seeing movies can expose us to people of different races and cultures We can then overcome some prejudices more easily Recently there have been more handicapped people in films and this also helps reduce prejudice The best influence on our behavior is that movies and television reduce stress Watching films we can escape our own problems for a little while Also sometime movies show positive ways to resolve problems we all face While TV and movies shouldnt be a way to hide from life sometimes they can help us cope It is true that movies and television can influence our behavior negatively However I also believe that they influence our behavior in positive ways How they affect you depends on how much you watch what you watch and how you respond to what you watch Essay ID 81 Topic 7 Hesitating I enter my house the light outside is dimming and the shadows make everything appear unfamiliar I know that my husband has not returned from work yet simply because his car is not in the garage I am alone I carefully check all the rooms almost expecting something to happen suddenly I hold my bag in my hand as if it were a weapon After the whole house has been declared quotclearquot I start to breathe normally again and a smile appears on my face as I realize once again how a simple movie seen at the cinema a week earlier can modify my actions Sometimes I wonder if I should watch TV with all its shows that make me wonder whether I exercise enough whether I am slim enough or whether I treat my pets with the care they deserve am I really concerned about their mental health Not to mention the hundreds of commercials that try to make me believe I need a water purifier to remain alive since the water I am currently drinking is heavily polluted And countless are the times when I have heard people talking by quotations learned from movies We need to watch shows and films to know what to say how to be how to act We are so addicted to all this that it almost seems like we cannot think on our own I cannot help thinking about what happened to me some days ago an example that clearly shows what kind of power TV has over people My husband and I were in a restaurant when I heard my young neighbor pronouncing violent words in a low angry voice Surprised I turned to better understand the situation and I saw that he was holding a fake military device and was acting as if he were filming a war movie I am sure that if I had been a little be more updated about this type of movie I would have recognized what he was saying as a quotation Now I wonder if he uses such a language also with his friends and with his parents if he is aggressive and if so whether his attitude has really nothing to do with what he watches on TV That same evening on the way home I saw two cars stopped one next to the other at a traffic light and as soon as the light turned green they started racing in the middle of town In this case not even a major knowledge of movies and TV programs would have helped me there are just to
TWE Essays 34292 34 many of them on the market showing the exact same thing people racing with cars I am sure that everybody if asked could easily list many other examples of how TV and movies can modify our behavior and therefore our life but I wonder if we will always be able to draw the line between a TV show and real life between what they make us think we want and what instead we really need and are and believe Essay ID 332 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 8 Television is undoubtedly one of the most powerful means of communication in the history of humankind rivaled only by such other forms of communication as the Internet the telephone movies and of course simple low-tech speech Television with its wide availability and rich media with image and sound is difficult to ignore and even seductive in its appeal Television is as much a part of our lives as are our meals work or school studies consistently show that the average American child spends almost as much time watching television as she does in school Furthermore because television is so rich in its media it often requires our full attention or is more attraction to us than are our daily lives Naturally the more time one spends watching television the less time she has with her family and friends Thus we can clearly see why some have claimed that television has been harmful for communication among family and friends However I believe that while television has been somewhat harmful in its effects it has hardly quotdestroyedquot communication among family and friends for most people although for some this may be true Most people much prefer spending time with their families and friends to spending time watching television Television is of course an important part of many peoples lives but most people would gladly choose family and friends over television were they given the choice Furthermore most educated people are aware of the deleterious effects of too much television and either avoid excessive time watching television or actually do not enjoy it I for example after a long day at work would much rather spend time talking with my wife and playing with my children than I would watching some unrealistic portrayal of life on television For me and my family our time together is precious and beautiful and could never be replaced or hurt by television Furthermore the effect of television is simply not so great that it could be said to have quotdestroyedquot communication among family and friends Granting that communication among family and friends in industrialized countries has decreased in recent years it might be tempting to blame this problem on television since its rise roughly coincided with the decrease in time we spend with our families However I believe this situation is more likely due to increased pressures relating from work school and the economy In my case for example I find that my pressures from work are so great that I must often sacrifice time at home so that I can meet the challenges of running my own business Many of my friends are in similar situations--my best friend for example has just finished law school which took about sixty hours a week of his time In a word people nowadays have very little time for anything but television is not the cause--it is increased desire to succeed In some situations however television has surely contributed to a decrease in communication among family members In my childhood in the countryside I often saw parents and children watching television for hours on end rarely speaking with one another It seemed for them that television was a way to escape from their sad miserable existence However even in this case I would say that television merely contributed to the bad situation but did not cause it were television not existent surely these people would have found other escapes alcohol or gambling for example In other words people always find a way to do what they want to do
TWE Essays 35292 35 In short I do not believe that television has destroyed or even harmed interpersonal communication among most people Most people realize that television is merely a temporary diversion and do not use it to replace interpersonal communication I believe that the damage attributed to television is greatly exaggerated and that such damage is most likely attributable to other more powerful social factors Essay ID 339 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 8 When asked about what has been brought by television different people have different answers There is some people who dont like TV saying that television has destroyed communications among friends and family however other people take a negative attitude on this issue In my opinion I disagree with the above statement The reasons are given below Television is only one instrument for people to relax There is many ways of amusement for people to select after the working time nowadays You can select to meet your friends to accompany your parents or to take part in some sports activities Watching TV at home is simply one way to live It is too narrowly to regard TV as one main reason to damage relationship among friends and family just because some people has spent a lot of time on it Another reason that I disagree with the above statement is that TV can provide some additional topics for communication among friends and family Talking about the news the soap drama or soccer game watching on the TV last night is also good communication ways to increase your affections with your friends and your family Also sometimes skipping one TV program could probably make you lose voices among your friends Last but not least watching TV is one good medicine to cure the loneliness when your friends and parents can not accompany with you I would not forget the warm which was brought by TV when along outside the hometown I cant deny that some people has ignored friends and family when they are addicted into watching TV However everything has its two sides All the factors mentioned above determined me to draw the conclusion that it is not reasonable to say television has destroyed communications among friends and family Essay ID 234 This is a 5 point essay Topic 8 Some people believe that television has destroyed communication among friends and family I think this is an exaggeration In my opinion whether or not television hurts communication depends on what type of program is being viewed More importantly it depends on the type of viewer There are empty programs and educational programs Empty programs do not challenge people They have just enough storyline to keep them from switching channels There are also passive and active viewers A passive viewer will just watch television without thinking about what he or she is seeing The combination of an empty program and a passive viewer makes communication unlikely Passive viewers just continue to watch actually enjoying the fact that they dont have to think They wont break away to talk about programming with friends and family Even with better programming passive viewers still wont think or communicate much Theyll probably even

TWE Essays 41292 41 Considering the operation of the establishments we should certainly pay more to run a library than the sports activities With the developement of the informationalization of the world more and more books are published In order to possess those books universities must pay a lot money on them While running a stadium is much more easier Because university is a place to study it is natural that more students go to the library Whenever you go to the library you will see diligent students studying there Especially in the examination period you can hardly find a vacant seat To sum up sports activities are very important to students health but if there is limited money we have to spend more money on libraries than on sports activities Because libraries are necessities of a university which need a large amount of money to run and many students enjoy them Essay ID 271 This is a 5 point essay Topic 12 When people travel to new places they often choose the local museums as a must-see place Sometimes the museums are even more attractive than the most famous place of interest This phenomenon can be easily explained if the function of museums is taken into account As we have known museums can help us know the history the customs and the most representative products of that place Different place has different history And the most convenient way to know the history is to visit the local museum Last year when I traveled to Xian an old city I went to the history museum to explore the course of its development With the background knowledge provided by the museum I found that it was easier for me to understand the city So the museum can clear away the barriers between tourists and the city by making them familiar with its history To a tourist the most attractive part of a place is usually its customs which can be demonstrated by the local museum In the Beijing custom museum the real life of typical Beijingers is vividly shown A tourist can satisfy his curiosity by knowing the origin and characteristics of the quart-yard the most classical building in Beijing With the help of museums tourists can have a deeper understanding of the life of local people Every place has its own representative products which are usually handcrafts Tourists can have the access to a wonderful show of these handcrafts in the local museum For example in Jingde town the most famous pottery-making place in China tourists can be excited by the beautiful pottery products and the complicated making process exhibited in the pottery museum It will be a pity for a tourist not to experience the wonderful show of the local products in the museum In a word museums serve as a bridge between tourists and the place they travel to That is why people are so eager to visit museums when they travel to new places Essay ID 469 Topic 12 Museums are presents the whole world left to us with which we can learn lots of things we did not previously know be aware of what has happened in the past as well as what is going to happen in the future or gain self-understanding Personally among countless factors which influence the reason for visiting museums there are three conspicuous aspects as follows
TWE Essays 42292 42 The main reason for my propensity for visiting museums is that more about local histories can be known in this way Nowadays many museums are mainly operating for responsibilities to collect preserve historic treasures and exhibit fine art and antiquities For instance the National Museum of Chinese History the first of these kinds to be established in China has over 300000 items including more than 2000 first-grade pieces items 100000 photographs of cultural relics and over 200000 professional books As you walk around the General Chinese History exhibition rooms looking at the cultural relics and imagining the past you may feel that you are traveling along a path spanning the course of Chinese history Another reason can be seen by every person is that you can see something rare so much as unique in museums For example Emperor QinShihuang the first emperor in Chinese history is known as the Emperor Qins Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses Today the Emperor Qins Terra-cotta Museum quotthe eighth Wonder of the worldquot is not only a treasure house where the tourists can learn histories but also a main scenic spot of China The vivid pottery figures colorful uniforms and various weapons acclaimed as the peak of perfection are unique forever Furthermore visiting museums can enrich our knowledge about various sides such as preventive measures of a disease the reason of earthquake mans region the latest development of the laser and so on The inventive genius may be inspired in someone by making exhibits because knowledge is acquired more easily in this way than being taught in class Still people might list other reasons to explain why they always visit museums while traveling to new places but the three points I have explored in the above discussion I believe are most relevant to the issue under discussion Essay ID 500 Topic 12 Many people visit museums when they travel to new places By visiting museums one can learn as much as possible about those places where one visit in a shout time First of all one can learn about the history of the places in museums Today almost every town in the world has realized the importance to set up their own museums to exhibit historic items which belong to their past When we visit a new place we can get almost everything we need about its history in the museums Last summer vacation I and several classmates traveled to the city of Taian At the foot of Mount Tai located a museum about General Feng Yuxiang After visiting it we knew a lot about Mr Feng and what he did to the local people He was respected by there people and so did us Second visiting museums gives information about local culture After a long exhausting journey what a good thing to sit in the museum theatre watching a performance about local culture When we travel to a new place especially for a limited time when you cannot go everywhere so you can get as much information as possible about local culture by visiting museums What is more visiting museums gives us a good chance to make new friends Surely there are a lot of people will visit museums like us We can chat with them about what we see and what we hear At the end of visiting we sit together to have a cup of coffee and we become good friends By exchanging telephone number we can also keep in touch with each other late What a good experience In a word more and more people visit museums when they travel to new places because they

TWE Essays 47292 47 Gates have such powerful ability by not attending some classes when they were in university Admittedly being required to attend classes has advantages of disciplining the student however considering most university students can discipline themselves on their own I believe it is sagacious to agree with that going to classes should be optional for college or university students Essay ID 93 Topic 14 Should university students be required to attend classes There are two different opinions Some people claim that attending classed is a must to students Other people however argue that it should be for students to decide whether they want to go to class or not As far as I am concerned no matter whether students like it or not they must attend classes Students who dont like to go to classes have their reasons The main one is they can learn knowledge by themselves If they were asked to attend the class in which the professor teaches something they already have known it would be a pain Not attending class students can control their time more freely and are likely not to waste time Although I agree that there may be one or two advantages to not attending class I insist that the advantages of joining classes far overweigh them In the first place professors can teach students a lot of things that cannot be obtained from books In Chinese dictionary a university is defined to be a place where teachers forward what they know to students In the book normally there is just concentrated knowledge How the writer gets and develops it is a question How to answer this question Go to the class The professor will not only teach you some knowledge but also let you know how to use and develop it As a Chinese slang says quot Owning a key is owning a housequot That is the most important reason people want to study in university In the second place you will be benefited from discussing with your classmates if attending classes Different people have their own special capability One people cannot be good at every aspect What is the best way to share your knowledge with others and learn from others Go to the class Professor always gives some topics for students to discuss In the discussion you will be surprised that so many great fresh thoughts are pushing to you from your colleagues and they are free In conclusion I believe that students should attend classes not only because professors can teach you the method of how to master and develop knowledge but also because students can learn from each other in the class In short attend classes if you select to attend university Essay ID 409 Topic 14 Some people may believe that going to classes should be optional but I disagree I dont understand how university students can expect to learn anything if they dont attend classes Personal experience can help people learn about themselves and the world outside the classroom but when it comes to learning about academic subjects students need to be in class In class they receive the benefit of the teachers knowledge The best teachers do more than just go over the material in the class textbook They draw their students into discussion of the material They present opposing points of view They schedule guest speakers to come give the students additional information or show documentary films on the subject
TWE Essays 48292 48 Also attending classes on any subject teaches more than just facts It teaches students how to learn how to absorb information and then apply what theyve learned to other situations Their teacher is the best one to help them with these skills They cant learn them just by reading the textbook Going to class also teaches students how to work with the other members of the class Many times students will be given group assignments This is different from what they did in secondary school Here theyre with people from different backgrounds and experiences In this situation they learn how to handle working with people different from themselves to achieve a common goal Going to class also teaches students responsibility and discipline Having to be at a particular place at a particular time prepares them for getting a job Being at that place on time with an assignment completed prepares them for a career In short by going to class students learn more than just information from the teacher They also learn how to learn how to work with others and how to work responsibly These are not optional skills in life so attending classes should not be optional in college Essay ID 94 Topic 15 If you have a good neighbor you are a lucky person You have someone who cares about your needs and your property who is helpful in the little day-to-day situations that come up and who is supportive in times of crisis A good neighbor is someone who for instance understands that your children may occasionally run across his lawn- even though you tell them not to Hell realize that children can be careless about things like that and he wont make a big fuss about it unless it becomes a regular thing In the same vein he knows that youll understand if some of the trash from his trash cans blows across into your yard In other words he is sensitive to the unintentional things that can happen He doesnt make a big deal about them A good neighbor is also respectful of your property For example she asks your permission before doing anything that interferes with whats yours This means she wouldnt plant a huge tree in between your houses without asking how you felt about it If she wanted to put up a fence she would let you know first She might work with you to decide where it should be placed Maybe the two of you would even split the cost A good neighbor would lend you some milk if you ran out Shed give you a ride to work if your car was broken and let your children stay at her house in the evening if you got stuck working overtime You would do the same for her Both of you would help make the others life easier When something really awful happens to you like a death in the family a good neighbor will volunteer to help in any way he can This could mean something small like making some casseroles to put in your freezer to feed visiting relatives Or it could mean something big like helping you get through the sadness of the funeral I think only someone who has experienced a bad neighbor can really appreciate a good one A good neighbor can be a good friend He or she can make all the difference in the world to your life Essay ID 95
TWE Essays 49292 49 Topic 15 Neighbours are the people who live near us and their behaviour influence our daily life Good neighbours can make us feel comfortable and give us many help and everyone will benefit from a good relationship among neighbours In my point of view these are three conspicuous aspects of the qualities of a good neighbours One of the most important characteristic of good neighbours is that they have a good living habit and are friendly to others A person with bad habit will affect your daily life For example children are most likely to be influnced by bad neighbors and carry on bad habits On the other hand being friendly is also an important nature of good neighbors If neighbours are unfriendly they are hard to approach and difficult to get along with Another important aspect of of good neighbors is that they should be willing to help others In our daily life emergency situations may happen and we may encounter difficulties which can not be resolved by ourselves At this time the quickest help we can get is probably from our neighbors To some degree neighbours are as important as relatives to us because they could provide the immediat help In the same way a neighbour who likes to help others will get help in return Help each others can form a friendly and harmonious relationship among the neighbours All in all a good neighbour is someone who have a good living habit is friendly and is willing to help others Taking into account of all these factors we may reach the conclusion that a good relationship among neighbours need the maintenance from us Essay ID 354 Topic 16 I can see both advantages and disadvantages to having a new restaurant built in our neighborhood Im worried about traffic and how it will affect our neighborhood However I think that it will benefit local businesses and increase appreciation for our neighborhood Overall I think it is a good idea Traffic congestion is always a concern when you build something new Our streets are narrow with parking on both sides More cars traveling through the neighborhood could cause a lot of congestion Traffic means parking problems too Our neighborhood has very few garages attached to the houses Most of us depend on finding a space to park on the street If the new restaurant is built well be competing for those spaces with the restaurants patrons Plus if the restaurant offers valet parking itll be even worse Valet parkers work in teams to grab every possible space available on the street Im also concerned about the type of patrons this new restaurant will bring into our neighborhood A family restaurant wouldnt be a problem However if its going have a bar and dancing then there could be problems The restaurant would stay open later and people leaving the restaurant might be drunk Who wouldnt worry about rowdy customers staggering around our neighborhood in the early morning hours looking for their cars I have to admit though there are advantages to a new restaurant Our neighborhood could certainly use the jobs the restaurant would provide Not only that the money neighborhood residents would earn there would likely be spent at other neighborhood businesses This would give a boost to those businesses and make our neighborhood more prosperous
TWE Essays 50292 50 A new restaurant would also attract a lot of people to our neighborhood They could see what a nice area this is to live That might attract new residents to the neighborhood That would be a good thing because weve been losing residents to the suburbs the last couple of years There are a lot of details to consider but all in all I support the idea of this new restaurant in our neighborhood Essay ID 96 Topic 17 Most of us can learn how to do something simple on our own with just a set of instructions However to learn about something more complex its always best to have a teacher Teachers bring with them varied and useful backgrounds Theyve been trained to teach individuals in different ways depending on their style For instance some students learn better by discussing a topic Others learn more by writing about it Teachers can help students learn in the way thats best for each student A textbook or a manual can only give you one way of learning something Plus theyre only as helpful as your ability to understand them A good teacher can adapt her teaching to your needs Teachers help you focus on what youre learning If youre learning something by yourself its easy to become distracted and go on to other activities Teachers keep your attention on the subject They also approach a subject logically taking it one step at a time On your own its tempting to skip parts of the learning process you think you dont need That can hinder your ability to really understand the subject Learning a subject on your own is a very narrow way of learning You can only use the information you get from the textbook With a teacher you get the information in the written materials as well as the teachers own knowledge of the topic Teachers can also provide extra materials to broaden the scope of what youre learning Theres nothing wrong with studying on your own and a learner can always benefit from some quiet study For the best possible learning though a good teacher is the biggest help you can have Essay ID 97 Topic 18 Even though job situations can be very different there are several qualities that all good supervisors have in common A good boss treats all her employees fairly She doesnt single out one employee for better or worse treatment than the others A poor supervisor has favorites Sometimes shell even use her favorites to spy on other employees She expects them to tell her what the others are saying about her This can cause a lot of bad feelings among employees A good supervisor gives clear and understandable directions She doesnt constantly change her mind about what she wants employees to do She also doesnt get angry with an employee who is confused and needs her to explain the directions again or more fully Delegating authority well is another quality of a good supervisor She knows how to use the skills of her employees to best advantage A poor supervisor insists on doing everything herself She is unwilling to give any authority to others
TWE Essays 51292 51 A good boss evaluates her employees on a reasonable set of criteria not on how she feels about them personally And she lets the employees know what those criteria are so they have a fair chance of meeting them She gives both praise and criticism in a straightforward manner She also offers guidance when needed A poor supervisor will criticize without giving any suggestions on how to improve Most importantly a good supervisor sets the standards for her employees by her own behavior She works hard and treats employees like valuable assets to the company This promotes good morale among her workers and this is of great benefit to her business Essay ID 98 Topic 19 Should governments spend more money on improving roads and highways or on improving public transportations There seems to be a difficult problem since many reasons should be involved However after carefully pondering it I buttress the last one spending the money on improving public transportation The reasons are presented below There is no denying that improving the public transportation will surely alleviate the pollution given off by enormous cars If a city has not a developed public transportation the air will be polluted more heavily What a dirty environment we will live in Every day breathing into the air filled with the flour of the gasoline seeing the sky with the dull color will be the title of our life So the essence of environment has been realized by an increasingly number of people to the governments the protection of environment is especially an undeniable mission Another reason I agree with it is that developed public transportation will decrease the frequency of the traffic jams Perhaps no worse word than traffic jams exists to the businessmen who believe in Time is money Traffic jams not only cost the people time and expense but also create a bad mood for work It greatly decreases the efficiency of the whole city I imagine how can a city whose avenue full of traffic jams develop its economics Finally I want to say that improving the public transportation provide a great number of ways of transportation for most of the poor people who can not afford to buy a car It is known that our citizens is not made of only people who has the ability to own a car but the very poor people are also included I believe that however the technology is improved the public apparatus should not be ignored because it serves the people all over the city Nevertheless the private transportation has its own advantages for instance it can save a lot of time in some cases provide some convenience for people But improving on roads and highways is advantageous only conditionally Based on the above discussion I agree with the opinion that the government should spend money on improving public transportation not only it can protect environment and save time for people but it also can create a convenient environment for all the citizens Essay ID 530 Topic 19 Governments should definitely spend more money on improving all forms of public transportation These include buses subways and trains This is the best way to preserve natural resources and reduce pollution
TWE Essays 52292 52 As a planet were dealing with a finite amount of natural resources Once theyre gone they cant be replaced They cant fill our need for oil and gasoline forever But we seem to forget that and consume them at an incredible rate In wealthier countries some families have two or three cars As soon as teenagers get their drivers licenses theyre given cars so their parents wont have to drive them places Public transportation hasnt been sufficiently developed Because of this suburban areas surrounding cities have been allowed to sprawl more and more widely This means that people cant even go to the store without having to hop into the car Everything is too far away from where they live If there were better and more frequent public transportation people would be able to give up their cars for local driving As a result of all the cars being driven were dealing with terrible pollution problems In big cities there are days during the summer when the elderly and people with respiratory problems are advised not to leave the house Ten years ago this was unheard of Now its the norm Public transportation would cut down considerably on air pollution Public transportation also encourages a sense of community People who travel to work together all the time get to know each other Cars isolate us from our neighbors However people feel they need to drive because they cant depend on public transportation to fit their schedules If more money were available buses subways and trains could run 24 hours a day Then they would be available all the time to the people who need them I always try to take public transportation whenever possible and I encourage friends and neighbors to try it to I think we must support public transportation in order to create a better world Essay ID 101 Topic 20 With the development of the transportation system and some residence institution the world is getting smaller and smaller and people are not restricted in only one area In addition to the convenient condition because there are different places with different cultures living standards education environment and other disparity they are inclined to transfer from one place to the other Is it better to move around than stay in one place I believe there are no uniform answers but in my opinion I do agree with the claim that to move around is better than to stay in one place Most peoples growth comes with the transfers in their life As for me when I was young I lived in a small county Because the school in there was not suitable to me I transferred from my little county to a city to get a better education As soon as I got to the city I was amazed that the world here was so different here as my hometown If I still lived in my hometown it was impossible for me to make the wildest guess at what the real world looked like The first transfer has made me to imagine my own life and spur on me to go further With the confidence I went into a university which I would never think of it before The university is located in a different city so that I have to come into another world Compared with my living city the one is more complicated in which there are different people more convenient transportation more competitive environment I love all of this very much Communicating with different students and teachers I have learned much from them which will benefit me throughout my life and my lifestyle Now I am in a graduate school also so beautiful that I will never regret my selection of leaving my hometown because the transfer has given me a splendid life
TWE Essays 53292 53 Also like we students there are many adults transferring their work place in order to grasp better opportunities No matter in industry in agriculture or in service workers have rights to choose their work companies which leads them to work from place to place and then they accumulate precious experience and skills to get priorities to others People not only transfer in their own country but also go abroad to get education work or live through the rest of their life in appropriate countries We can see that many students including me want to go to the foreign countries to study further and forge ourselves and that many parents send their little sons or daughters to foreign countries to study After all diverse circumstances give persons new experience and broaden their narrow sight even help them get more comprehensive understanding of the world the society and our life itself However some people may say that if people move around they will pay for much such as money time and energy It is right to say that it takes one person some time to get used to his or her new environment new personal relationship which indeed influences the growth of children the efficiency of our work and the stability of our society and family And I have to admit that people should make considerate plans before changing their places and may not transfer aimlessly and frequently But I think sometimes it is just all the friction that has made the world wealthier and more beautiful Therefore I still think it is better to travel around than to live in one place Essay ID 102 Topic 20 There are advantages and disadvantages to a childhood in either the country or a city Its hard to say which is better Growing up in the country means a certain amount of isolation Youre in a small town or on a farm and not with a lot of people Even more important the people you meet every day tend to be just like you Most will be the same race as you have the same background as you and will have gone to the same schools as you In the city the people you meet are all different There are different races and different cultures You get a more interesting mix City people tend to come from a lot of different places and move around a lot So there isnt the sense of community in the city that you have in the country People in the city can live in the same apartment building for twenty years and never get to know their neighbors In the country everybody knows everybody For a child this means the country is more secure A child can get lost or hurt in the city and have no one to turn to In the country everyones a neighbor People in the country feel connected to each other A child growing up in the city has the advantage of a lot of interesting and exciting places to visit He or she can go to the zoo museums art galleries and concerts There are a lot of restaurants with different kinds of food Its easy to see every new movie that comes out Children in the country dont have a lot of these activities nearby All in all I think a childhood in the city is better because it prepares you more for what real life is like Essay ID 103 Topic 20 Where is a better place for children to grow up the countryside or the big city The answer to this question differs from individual to individual As far as I am concerned it is better for children to
TWE Essays 54292 54 grow up in a big city Some people argue that the countryside is an ideal place for children to grow up For one thing it is less polluted than the city The air is fresh in the countryside The sky is bluer and the water is clearer Living in such a place is good to the childrens health For another as children like playing only the countryside can satisfy them well They can run everywhere play games in the field swim in the river On the contrary the city cannot provide such places for children Maybe they can only stay at home and watch TV Although I do agree that growing up in the countryside has one or more advantages I insist that it is far better to choose the city as the right place for children To begin with living in the city can broaden their horizons They can meet a lot of people and hear a number of things that will never happen in the countryside In addition city means more chance to receive better education In most countries it is no doubt that the education level in the city is higher than that of the country As a result children can meet better teachers and receive high quality of education in the city Last but not least children can also develop many hobbies in the city They can learn to play the piano draw and so on which are impossible in the country In conclusion I believe that it is better for children to grow up in the city not only because it can broaden their horizons but also because they can receive better education and have a chance to develop many hobbies there Essay ID 416 Topic 21 With the development of human society people are living longer now Many factors interacting together to enable the longer life There are three most important causes the quality of food has been greatly improved people could have medical services more and more people realize that regular sports benefit their health The improving quality of our food is the most important factor of the longer life We could have not only enough food as we want but also the healthier food When we preparing food we no longer consider the cost but pay more attention to the nutritions of the food With the development of transportation systems inland people now could also enjoy seafood and tropical fruit Furthermore governments are paying more and more money on medical establishments Citizens could have medical services more easily Because of the convenient medical service more illnesses could be detected at an earlier stage Also many illnesses that had been considered fatal could be cured today The better detection and curement enable peoples longer life Last but not least important is that people care more for their own health Every morning you could see people doing sports outside More and more people have realized the saying quotlife is locomotionquot Regular sports build up a strong body Naturally people with stronger body could resist more deseases To sum up the development of our society causes the longer life of people People have better food and better medical services And people spend more time on sports to biuld up stronger bodies As we could predict people are going to live even longer

TWE Essays 60292 60 There are both advantages and disadvantages of establishing a shopping mall in our neighborhood I am worried about traffic and how it will affect our community However I believe it will benefit local business and increase appreciations for local area All in all I think it is a good idea For those what I am worried about traffic congestion and parking problem are obverse First of all traffic congestion is always a concern when building something new Our streets are narrow with parking on both sides A shopping center will certainly bring more traffic than ever before and heavy traffic means big congestion At the same time parking is also a problem in this area There are few garages attached to houses Most of residents depend on finding spaces on the street for parking If a shopping mall is build we must compete with customers and patrons for those parking spaces Furthermore if the shopping center offers valet parking service it would be even worse because valet parking works in terms to grab every possible spaces available in street On the other hand building up a shopping center will give this neighborhood more opportunities and benefits Residents in this area could certainly take the job that shopping center offers People would earn more money and spend on other business such as entertainment and education which are operating in our neighborhood or adjacent communities As a result not only local business but also inter-community business boosts up and a prodigious amount of fortune will be accumulated to our neighborhood A shopping center can also attract people to visit our community When they drive to the shopping center they will see what a nice place this area is to live Therefore we would have an increasing number of residents in the next couple of years It is very important to introduce new numbers because we have lost many residents to suburbs during recent years In a short there are several details to consider when planning a shopping center In my part I support to have a new shopping center in my community because its advantages outweigh disadvantages Essay ID 502 Topic 25 There would be both advantages and disadvantages to having a shopping center built in my neighborhood One advantage would be the convenience I would like to have all those stores close by Shopping would be much easier and faster because I wouldnt have to drive great distances to get to the stores A shopping center would mean more choices because there would be more stores selling different products I might have a movie theater nearby because so many shopping centers these days include movie theaters in their plans Most shopping centers also have restaurants and a food court That means a greater variety of places to eat in our area Having a shopping center built in the neighborhood would also mean more jobs for the community Initially these jobs would be in the building of the center Later the jobs would be in the stores theaters and food establishments Of course there would be some disadvantages Probably the biggest problem would be traffic A lot of people would be coming to the shopping center Theyd drive through our neighborhood to get to the center In addition if there wasnt enough parking at the center they might look for parking spaces near our homes A shopping center might also invite more crime into our neighborhood Parking lots after dark are a big temptation to robbers They know people are there with money to spend The shopping
TWE Essays 61292 61 center might also become a place where unruly teenagers would gather This could cause trouble Our town would need a community center for them to go to instead On the whole though I think my neighborhood should support having a shopping center built here It would bring more variety to our shopping give us the opportunity to amuse ourselves at movie theaters and restaurants and bring more jobs into the area Essay ID 108 Topic 26 I know from the media that a new movie theater may be built in my neighborhood Going to see a movie is one of the most common ways of entertainment With the movie theater nearby I could go to see a movie more convenient However there are more reasons to oppose the building of a new heater especially near our community If the movie theater is built in our neighborhood it certainly provides us the conveniece to see a movie We no longer need to drive downtown to see it but walk to the movie theater after dinner without any hastle It will save a lot of time on the way to the teater And we will never worry about finding a parking lot However the movie theater nearby will also bring some problems First the noise of the people going to the theater will bother other people in the community The movies usually end very late People who enjoy the movies will certainly discuss it when stepping out the theater some people will argue or even cry for the movie Furthermore the noise of the cars engines will make the condition worse The people who live in the community nearby will suffer from the noises of people and cars Another disadvantage of building a movie theater nearby lies that it will cause trafic jam during the hours people going home People who live far away will drive to the theater These cars together with the cars of the people after work will pose a heavy burden on the trafic system of the town The trafic jam will not only make many people late for the movie but also bring us who live nearby bad moods before going home Considering the advantage and disadvantage factors above I oppose to build a new movie theater in my neighborhood because the problems outweigh the benefits We usually see movies once a month I cannot afford suffering from the trafic jams and noises in the late evening throughout the month except for the day I amble there to see a movie Essay ID 396 Topic 26 It has recently been announced that a new movie theatre may be built in my neighborhood However as far as I am concerned I do not support this plan The argument of my view goes as follows To begin with people seldom go out to watch movie nowadays With the development of science and technology people have a lot of methods to enjoy themselves They can watch TV at home go to watch the soccer game play basketball and so on In my hometown fewer and fewer choose to watch movie in a theater They prefer to watch movie on TV at home which is more comfortable
TWE Essays 62292 62 In addition I think there are enough theatres now As I know it is only fifteen minutes walk between the two theaters in my community As a result it is obvious unnecessary to build the third one If we do build another theatre the average persons per theater will decrease which makes every theater earns less money Last but not least it is to some degree a waste of money Nowadays we must use money in quite a number of fields For instance there is only one primary school here It takes some children half an hour to go to school from their home If we can build another school instead of the theatre students will spend less time on their way which is safer because there are many buses and cars on the road In conclusion it must be explained that these three reasons sometimes intertwine to form an organic whole and thus become more persuasive than any one of them Then any thinking person must agree that it is not necessary to build a movie theatre Essay ID 447 This is a 5 point essay Topic 26 Some people will say that a new movie theater in our neighborhood would be a bad thing However I fully support the plan to build one I feel that a movie theater would bring more opportunities for recreation reduce teenage delinquency and lead to several improvements in the town As it stands there is little to do in my town There are no parks here and there is certainly no nightlife Additionally the nearest movie theater is more than thirty minutes away That is inconvenient for everyone here Many movies end late at night Who wants a long drive home at 1130pm or midnight Building a new movie theater here will reduce juvenile delinquency Like everyone else teens here are bored They need activities to keep them busy and out of trouble The jobs that the theatre will provide will help teens too We need more businesses that are willing and eager to employ young people Overall the new theater will bring many improvements to the town For example it will help other businesses That is because the movie theater will attract customers from neighboring towns Those neighbors do not have a reason to come to this town now However if they are coming here for a movie they will be more likely to stay here to shop If we get more visitors well need better roads While this may be costly it will also make travel easier for people living here We will be able to get around faster Safety will be improved with the new roads because they will be in better condition than many that we have now I believe that our town needs a new movie theater Again I support it fully I hope that others in our community will join me to convince residents and local government Essay ID 109 Topic 27 I agree that people should sometimes do things that they dont enjoy doing This is a basic part of being an adult Plus some things that arent quotfunquot are still good for us in the long run

TWE Essays 71292 71 I would feel very rich with my jewelry I would have a good investment which is permanent and fashionable Then when someone invites me to a concert and pays for my ticket I will have something beautiful to wear Essay ID 116 Topic 34 There are many advantages and disadvantages to off employees job security for life In Japan for example prospective employees know that their employers will provide them with job security for their entire working days and they are better able to plan for their future and family However many businesses are now realizing that their employees have less motivation to work and this leads to less profits for the company I will describe the advantages and disadvantages of this system in this essay and I will show that ultimately jobs for life is not good for a society Job security is very important for both the employee and the employer For the employee job security is important because she can depend on her source of income and better plan her future accordingly For the employer the employee represents an investment because of the number of hours of training required and the company will continue to have a return on this investment As we all know feeling secure about where our future income will come from is very important for our well-beinganybody who has lost a job and has had trouble finding a new one knows that this transition period can cause a lot of anxiety However job security tends to lead to decreased productivity In general employees who are certain that they can never lose their jobs tend to work less efficiently thereby contributing to an overall reduction of productivity in the company A common example all over the world is that of civil servants In Thailand for example many government workers are so indolent that it can take days or months for something to be finished that should only take a few days It is not uncommon to walk into a government office and see employees filing their nails making personal calls on the telephone taking three-hour lunches or surfing the Internet for fun Finally the model of capitalism is proving to be the most efficient model that we have right now This model of job security completely contradicts the foundations of capitalism We can see in the United States now that people are starting to change jobs even careers more and more often Some career consultants even recommend that employees find new jobs every three to five years Even in countries that still offer job security for life this model is showing signs of dying out For example in Japan once famous for its lifelong jobs both employees and employers are starting to expect that these jobs will not last a lifetime Many of my Japanese friends travel back and forth between the United States and Japan are have been able to find temporary professional jobs while they are in Japan In short I disagree that companies should offer their employees jobs for life We can see this example in some parts of the world and in other areas in the United States but these examples are generally regarded as outmoded ways of conducting business Finally the models of capitalism even though it may seem cruel the so-called law of the jungle are proving to be the most effective way to raise the standard of living of a country Essay ID 117 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 34 Should business hire employees for their entire lives My answer is no A business has the
TWE Essays 72292 72 responsibility to take care of the right and interests of its employees therefore it should keep them as long as it can But it is not realistic that a business can hire its employees for their entire lives Firstly on the business side in order to survive and thrive a business like a human body needs to constantly bring in new ideas and fresh minds into the corporation and eliminate those positions which are not needed any longer Although this might sound cruel but it is for the survival of the business If the business itself cannot continue every employee will lose his job People generally think big companies like IBM or Nortel are the kind of place where people can keep their jobs for ever but these days we often hear about the news that these companies also lay off hundreds and thousands of people due to economic situations Secondly on the employee side securing a life-time job in one company is not good for his personal advancement He tends to be satisfied with his current job and make no plans for future career advancement This is harmful for both the company and himself In fact it is those hop around among different companies who can get a big increase in terms of salary and benefits and bring new experiences and skills to their new employee In conclusion I think it is not a good idea to hire employees for their entire lives It is both harmful to business and its employees and therefore also harmful to the society Essay ID 118 Topic 35 Some people like to attend a live performance while others think that watching the same event on television is more enjoyable To me I choose watching an event on television because it is easier and not limited and you have choices and can know more details of the event Watching an event is easier than attending it You need only a TV set in your room You do not have to buy a ticket or drive to the place where the event is performed You can drink some coffee or tea when you want But if you attend a concert or a play you have no the freedom to drink or do something else In addition you do not need to worry about the traffic jam and being late for the event so you have light mood to enjoy the event The other advantage of watching an event on television is that you can enjoy it at any time and you can choose what you like from many channels But if you attend an event and find you have no interest on it you would regret and waste time and money Watching it on television can avoid it If you are interested in the play you can stay on it if you are bored it you can change the channel to find some interesting Watching an event on television has an other advantage that you can get more details of the event from the interpretation You can know the background the present situation and such information of the event But if you attend it you cannot learn more knowledge about it So I choose watching an event on television I think it is more enjoyable than attending a live performance Essay ID 403 Topic 35 Do you like watching TVDo you watch it regularlyIf a living performance is available what do you thinkwill you choosewatching TV or attending the performanceBut if I were you I will
TWE Essays 73292 73 prefer the latter Watching TV is boring and exhastiveJust sitting before the grey box will make you sleepyYou can not feel the atmosphere in the auditorium which makes the audiences feel refreshed and excitedYou can appreciate all the programs through your own eyes not though the sqare glass screen There are many other audiences as well as you sitting there and watching the performance which makes you feel accompaniedAnd you can communicate with others about what you have just seen or thoughtThis gives you an opportunity to express your opnionAnd you know you are not alone then Going to see the performance out of your house is also good to your bodyFor you may have a walk after the activity even go to a good bar and find something to drinkYou can also see some friends after the showThough I am not very sure about others I will commonly do such things after a concertIt makes me feel great Soto take part in a living show is my favorite chioceIntsead of watching TV I would like to have some performance publicallyIt is better than the program in TV I think Essay ID 528 This is a 5 point essay Topic 35 Some people like attending live performance rather than watching the same event on television They think that will be enjoyable Others like me however do not think so There are no less than three disadvantages in attending a live performance rendered below First and foremostpeople who will go to a live performance may not see or lister to clearly Not all seats there are the best placeMay be you will feel disappionted after attending itand you must think the price for ticket is not worth that There is another factor that deserves some words hereThe quality of the performance will depends on some external factorsSuppose that you go to a concert outdoorsBefore you leave home you have to consider how the whether will be goIt is likely that audiances are wet because of rain during the performanceSo even though the performance is in high qualityyou may not feel comfortable more or less In addition attending a live performance may waste your time You must go there ahead of timeand you have to parkThat will spend much time I can not deny that attending a live performance has its own meritsNonethelessbased on the above discussion I strongly disagree with the opionion that attending a live performance is more enjoyable Essay ID 472 This is a 5 point essay Topic 35 I do not agree with the statement that attending a live performance such as a play concert or sport event is more enjoyable than watching the same event on TV because there are many disadvantages in attending a real performance
TWE Essays 74292 74 Firstly there is too much trouble in attending a real performance You have to buy tickets sometimes stand in a long queue you have to plan the trip and set out a few hours before the show started After arrived at the theatre or stadium you will have great trouble finding a parking place During a sport event your personal safety might be jeopardized the sports funs might get too excited about the event and throw bottles Many people might have heard the news that a girl was killed by a puck during a hockey game If you take public transport or a taxi home after the show you might find it very difficult to catch a bus or call a cab Secondly the seating arrangement can greatly affect the comfort of seeing the show If your seat is far from the stage or playground you cant even see the show clearly Peoples heads and cheers will distract you from viewing the show and in the end you dont even know whom you have seen in a play or who wins in a sports event Thirdly there is no flexibility in a real show After you have been through so much trouble and eventually start to enjoy the show you might find that you are quite disappointed about the show after all Unlike watching TV programs you neither simply change channels nor leave the theatre in the middle of a concert or play You might spend a lot of money to suffer from a show that you do not like On the contrary watching TV at home where you can make yourself a cup of coffee sit back comfortably and relax watch the show closely and enjoy the realistic image and sound from your SONY home-theatre system Besides you can watch programs whatever you like and go to bed right when the show has ended Although many people enjoy the excitement of watch a real show I think nothing is more convenient and comfortable than watch TV at home Essay ID 119 Topic 35 To many people attending a live performance such as a melodrama a concert or a sporting event is so incredibly attractive that they will go all out to get a ticket regardless of the expense or the difficulty involved But why not enjoy the performance on television while you can comfortably lie in your sofa or couch with popcorn at hand That is because attending a live performance provide you with far more enjoyment than watch it on TV In a live performance you will feel that you are in the company of many friends who are indulged in the same interest who can share your sorrow or pleasure or excitement This kind of resonance at heart is so rarely sensed in our daily life that this one reason itself is sufficient enough for many people to attend a live performance While watching it on TV we certainly find it hard to feel the emotion-sharing and our loneliness is hardly mitigated Furthermore attending a live performance gives you a sense of participation which cannot be achieved by watching on TV Live performance is an intercourse between the audience and the performers and both parts of the performance decide whether it will be a wonderful one In this way You may lament or laugh may sob or smile as you are so influenced by the misfortune or happiness of the characters You may fall into the indescribable intoxication while listen to a favorite piece of music And correspondingly the performers will receive the response of their audience and act accordingly So the final success of the performance results also from the participation and interaction of the audience of which you are a member
TWE Essays 75292 75 With these foregone advantages we may say that attending the live performance is definitely much more enjoyable than TV watching Essay ID 415 Topic 36 An airplane is a form of transportation that has changed peoples lives Thanks to the plane our lives are now faster more exciting and more convenient that before You cannot deny that a plane is fast For example the Concorde flies at supersonic speed A businessman can leave Paris at 11 am in the morning and arrive in New York at 8 am the same morning in time for a days work Many business people in Europe will fly to London for a noon meeting and then return home to Rome or Madrid for dinner It is always exciting to take a plane trip When you take a trip by plane you know that you might cross many time zones many oceans and many countries When you get off the plane you could be in a place that speaks a different language A plane is like a magicians trick You get in a box and you come out somewhere totally different Nothing can beat the convenience of a plane In the old days it might take you days to do what the plane can do it an hour Boats for example only leave on certain days of the week and take a long time to get to their destination Planes give you the option to leave several times a day and get you to your destination quickly Although other forms of transportation may be more comfortable none has changed the way we do business and live our lives more than the plane Thanks to the speed excitement and convenience of the planes our lives are richer Essay ID 120 Topic 36 The modern society have been changed by the enormous impact of the invention of the transportantion such as the automobile which has become indispensable in the daily live The automobiles are so popular that almost every family or even everyone has one Since the function and effect of automobile is known by everyone In this essay I would discuss another invention of the transportantion that is as important as the automobile in the modern society the plane As far as I am concerned these are three conspicous aspects as follows The main reason for my propensity to choose plane is that plane is the vehicle used by people most frequently Usually people drive car in short way while they take plane in long travel The most important reason people choose it for long distance is that the speed of plane is much faster than others The invention of plane create a compeletely new live Nowadays we can travel around the earth within twenty-four hours that is something say we can reach any place of the word in one day And there are many people who live in a place and work in the other city even the other nation for the plane can bring them go home in weekend Another reason can be seen by every person is that plane is known as one of the most safe and convenient vehicles It is reported from the relative data that the accident ratio of the plane is far under that of the train the ship the automobile and any other else With the developenment of the hi-tech faster safer and more comfortable plane are madeSince the supersonic plane appears

TWE Essays 79292 79 ignoring the past The past in a sense can blind us to the truth we can become bound by tradition For example at one time leading thinkers in Europe thought that the Earth was at the center of the universe and those who disagreed were persecuted as heretics even Copernicus who we now know was correct about his heliocentric model of the Solar System However scientists were eventually able to break from the past and accept the new model of the universe In short learning from and analyzing the past has enormous value for us and life as we know it on Earth today would not be possible without the benefit of thousands of years of history and accumulated knowledge It is important however to ignore the past so that we can make a step forward and such free thinking should be encouraged although not at the expense of past knowledge Learning from the past is something like learning from our parents-in most cases their past helps us have a better future but there are times when we need to make a break from the past and make a bold step into an unknown future Essay ID 122 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 39 Technology has greatly improved the way we get information Students can now get more information get it more quickly and get it more conveniently The Internet and the World Wide Web has opened every major library and database to students around the world Information comes not only in print form but also in multimedia You can get audio and video data You can get information about events in the past as well as events that unfold as you watch your computer monitor Information comes at the speed of the Internet which is to say in nanoseconds You can type in a few key words in your search engine and the engine will search the entire WWW to find information on your topic You dont have to spend hours pouring over card catalogs in the library and looking at the shelves This research is done for you instantly on the Web It is certainly more convenient to sit at home and do research on your computer Your computer is open 24-hours a day unlike a library or office which has limited hours and limited resources You can do research in your pajamas while you eat breakfast What could be more convenient Technology especially the Internet has certainly changed the quantity and quality of the information we get The speed and convenience of a computer helps students learn more more quickly Essay ID 123 Topic 40 I do strongly support the idea that we should keep trying and never stop working for our goals I think this is the most important thing that can help us to achieve our goals I believe that everybody meets many obstacles in their lives before achieving their goals I have learned the biography of some famous people in the past I found that almost all of them persevered through enormous hardships in order to reach their goals In this essay I will give you an example of the attempt of a great inventor of the world named Thomas Edison I am quite sure that everybody knows Thomas Edison He made many inventions during his lifetime According to his biography it states that he always met obstacles in order to invent something However he still kept trying in order to meet his goals I personally think that this is

TWE Essays 93292 93 Firstly in face-to-face communication people can get direct response from the other party When we talk with our friends we can get feedback immediately from their verbal response body language and facial expressions Based on these responses we can know whats the next step to take such as how to carry on the conversation and change the direction or finish the conversation if necessary Sometimes speaking words and body languages may not mean the same thing Although we can hear words from a telephone conversation from our friends but we do not always know if they really mean it This is also true in criminal inspections Police inspectors can judge whether the suspect is telling the truth through his or her body languages therefore get new clues and solve a criminal case more quickly Thus face-to-face communication is more perceptible and can help us understand a speakers true feeling better than other ways of communication Secondly face-to-face communication is the most helpful way to express ourselves In communication it is just not enough for us to say the words we need eye contact body language to express our feelings Sometimes we are so happy or angry that we are out of words At these times there is nothing more efficient to express our happiness or anger than a big hug or turn our face to another side When we are a tourist in a foreign country language is not always enough and gesticulations might help us get understood more quickly We can order in a restaurant by simply pointing our fingers to the menu when we do not know how to pronounce an item exactly Finally face-to-face communication is indispensable in situations such as a relationship Lovers need body contact such as a hug a kiss and more which cannot be done in letters or emails Although lovers can use letters or emails to communicate being apart for a long time is definitely not beneficial to a relationship In brief face-to-face communication is a very important way for us It is good for better understanding It is more visible direct and more effective than any other ways Essay ID 237 This is a 5 point essay Topic 49 encourage continued interaction If you are talking to someone directly you can see right away if they dont understand you A persons body language will tell you they disagree or dont follow your line of thought You can repeat yourself or paraphrase your argument If you had sent an e-mail the person may have misinterpreted what you wanted to say He or she could be insulted and you would have to waste time explaining yourself in another e-mail When you talk face-to-face you communicate with more than words You communicate with your eyes and your hands You communicate with your whole body People can sense that you really want to communicate with them This energy bonds people together Your relationship with a person can grow much stronger when you communicate in person Face-to-face encounters tend to go on longer than other forms of communication An e-mail lasts a second a telephone call a few minutes However when you meet face-to-face youve made an effort to meet with the person and the person has made an effort to meet with you You will probably spend longer together talking The longer you talk the more you say The more you say the stronger your relationship will be
TWE Essays 94292 94 In summary if you want to establish a relationship with another human being the best way is talking face-to-face When you communicate directly you can avoid misunderstandings that may occur in writing You can communicate on levels other than just words and you can spend more time doing it Essay ID 136 Topic 49 With the rapid growth of high technology computer telephone and other communication tools have become more and more important in our daily life so what people have gradually ignored face to face communications If I were asked whether face-to-face communication is better than other forms of communications such as email phone calls or letters I would choose email and phone calls Here I am going to enumerate some reasons to support my choice The main reason is that communication by telephone or by e-mail is more convenient There is no need to make appointment with friends before meetings all you need is just to remember their phone numbers or email addresses Wherever you are and whenever it will be communication is as easy as face-to-face talking Moreover it is more efficient for people to communicate Another important reason is that the way people connect by email can make more friends I have many friends on the Internet and we communicate each other regularly so I have gained more information and knowledge in many other fields Last but not least indirect communication such as emails and phone calls can avoid direct confrontation and embarrassment Sometimes we may not feel comfortable to borrow something or ask for a favor from our friends because we do not know their reactions At this time an email or a phone call can be more convenient and can avoid embarrassment If all these factors are contemplated the advantages of communication through email or telephone carry more weight than those of face-to-face communication Essay ID 408 Topic 50 I am not a risk taker I like to do just those things that I am proficient at I have learned that it is better to focus my attention do one thing and do it well and not try anything new When I was younger I was always experimenting with a lot of different things First I wanted to be a dress designer so I studied drawing I couldnt draw so I decided to be a veterinarian because I liked animals I didnt like to see sick animals so I decided to be a historian That suited me perfectly since all I had to do was sit in a library and read I learned to focus my attention on one subject Im a very good reader and history is very interesting to me 1 decided not to read any other subject I only read history books I even focused my attention on Chinese history I only read history books on Chinese history I do one thing and I do it well I dont like to try anything new If I read things in another area I dont do well I dont understand

TWE Essays 97292 97 There is a tide in the affairs of men Which taken at the flood leads on the fortune Omitted all the voyage of their life Is bound in shadows and in miseries ----By Shakespeare Admittedly chance can sometimes help a man to succeed But on the other hand not everyone will have such luck How can a businessman who succeeds by taking risks sustain his dealing with his business when he is suddenly out of luck Most likely their company will be out of business if they have not made an all-rounded plan Nevertheless chance favors a prepared mind The opportunity is equal to all the people The key to success is not waiting for a chance but seizing it Obviously careful planning will guide a man definitely from which he can not only find a destination and prevent him from aimlessness but also assist him to grip the chances on his way to success For instance an entrepreneur should understand the power of a cautious plan which may help him define his business concepts estimate costs predict sales control risks and even increase the chances of succeeding The plan may tell him what he should do and how to do it Going into business without a plan is just like having an expedition in the extensive ocean without a compass In the second place a comprehensive plan is also a reliable backup Although the original plan is followed suffering may come for some unpredictable occasions In that way a well-considered plan that mentions all the possibilities can be very helpful From what has been discussed above chances and taking risks may be unavoidable but success results primarily from careful planning A comprehensive schedule similar to a guide in explorations is a necessity for achievement Essay ID 529 Topic 52 Everything in the universe is in constant change And everything needs continual improvement if the ever changing and increasing demands of humankind are to be met If I am ever given the chance to change one important thing about my home town it would be internet service Needless to say that nothing generally revolutionized the way we live as Internet in the past decade Thus an improvement in this vital service would mean an even more unheard betterment to the people in my hometown It is said that information is power True saying indeed I can envision how everything in my hometown could improve dramatically if the Internet service in it were made free fast and staying out there like electricity telephone or water all the time One thing a fast free and reliable Internet service could improve in my hometown is the way people work If there is a this said service people in my home town must not necessarily commute to a far place to do their job This in turn would mean less traffic jams spacious work place more time for family and recreation and so on The way people learn would be another important thing that a fast free and reliable Internet service could better in my hometown People will have the chance to go through tremendous and different information resources in a very small amount of time They apparently will also take less time to share it This assures a more fulfilled life for my hometown people

TWE Essays 116292 116 The issue here is whether old historic buildings in a city should be preserved or replaced by modern buildings In my opinion buildings of historical value should definitely be protected rather than destroyed I base my point of view on following reasons Firstly each historical building is precious property of human being Like an antic the value of an old building can not be measured by money We will lose those valuable historical buildings permanently if we dont preserve them Once a historical building is destroyed we can never restore it even if it is restored to its original look the new building is only a fake replica the historical value will never come back to us Secondly a historic building always represents history and has educational functions Each one of them can tell us a story For example some buildings are evidences of foreign invasion others are signs of various religions existed in past decades People nowadays can always obtain historic or cultural information through visiting these old buildings and sites Although we can learn the past from books pictures and by visiting museums nothing can compare with the actual historical buildings themselves which can bring vivid educational material to us Thirdly historical buildings are a symbol of a city and a valuable tourist resource therefore a city cannot go without historical buildings Beijing is represented by the Forbidden City the Summer Palace which are all historical relics It is hard to imagine that someday the City of Beijing decides that all these buildings should be destroyed and modern buildings be built on their sites Because those historical relics and buildings are too important to the city and can generate profound tourist income A city will benefit more by protecting its historic buildings than by replacing them with modern buildings For all reasons given above I will strongly suggest a city municipal should preserve the old historic buildings Essay ID 150 Topic 66 I strongly agree that classmates are more influential to a childs success in school than parents This I support with the following reasons A child spends so much time with his classmates in school They study together play together and write exams together Psychologists agree that during their first years in school children are more influenced by their companies during their emotional and mental growth As a result classmates are whom a kid contact most in school and will therefore have much impact on his achievements in school In addition a child has nothing to hide with his classmates in terms of academic performance For instance a child who does a bad job in math exam will be revealed on his grades a child who wins the first prize in oral debate contest will be rewarded before the whole group of students So his classmates know both his good and bad sides of his performance in school However a child will conceal something to his parents while describing his conduct in school--often limit in those good points From this we can easily conclude that only those who understand more about a child can exert more influence on him Finally classmates are of similar age with a child They share so much interest in common So a child is more sentimentally attracted by his classmates activities If he is in a group of children who are interested in innovations he will more likely to think of inventing something all day So classmates are very helpful in his success in school
TWE Essays 117292 117 From the above discussed I agree that classmates will influence a child more in his school success because they have more time together they understand him better than his parents and they have so much common interest together Essay ID 151 Topic 66 Although students stay with their classmates all time in school parents are a more important influence on a childs success I disagree with the statement that classmates are a more important influence on a childs success in school because of the reasons as follows First of all parents are the people who understand their own children best They know the childrens good sides and bad habits They can correct the childrens bad idea and make them give rid of the bad habits So children can found a good base to get success in school But classmates can not do these work The other reason is that parents have experiences on a lot of matters If children have problems parents can give them their experiences to help them solve problems If parents have no similar experiences they still can give their children some advice and make them avoid the wrong directions Classmates can also give children some help but they do not have more experiences than parents So their influence is less than that of parents Parents also have other important influence on their childrens success in school Parents may analyze something in different ways and have different opinions from children Classmates also can have different opinions on one thing but they are at the same conditions with each other their opinions may be similar or narrow Children can learn more comprehensive knowledge about on thing from their parents So based on the above discussion I think it is clear that parents are a more important influence than classmates on a childs success in school Essay ID 268 This is a 5 point essay Topic 66 According to my experience I fully agree the view that classmates are a more important influence than parents on a childs success in school I like to use following reasons to explain why I think do The first and most important reason is children can easily share their thoughts with peers Undoubtedly children can readily exchange their ideas at the front of classmates I clearly remember that I like to confide my troubles to my little friends when I found that my parents could not utterly understand my thoughts Sometimes when I could not get a better score with which only my parents were not satisfied my friends could give my understanding and comfort Their words of comfort let me refresh to continue to study hard Another equally important reason is that the communication with classmates frequently is good for the cultivation of our characteristic When we often contact with our classmates or friends we can find our own advantages and drawbacks that I may be not conscious of at the front of our parents Classmates can frankly point out our shortages and these helps will play an important role in our future life
TWE Essays 118292 118 Moving on to the wider theme young active and vigorous virtues will drive us more likely to stay with our classmates After all we have more topics with our friends We can freely talk about our dreams our idols even our secrets which only belong to our own Of course I admit that parents can also give us many help For example they can teach us how to analyze positive and negative sides of every thing When we encounter heavy difficulties parents can give us immediate help But if all factors are contemplated the advantages of classmates carry more weight than those of parents From what has been discussed above we can safely draw the conclusion that classmates are a more important influence than parents on a childs success in school Essay ID 134 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 67 According to my experience I prefer to hire an experienced worker at a higher salary I like to use following reasons to explain why I think so The first and important reason is that experienced workers themselves mean higher efficiency I remember the words say Time is money An experienced worker just can meet this demand Such as many factories now adopt the system that workers salary will depend on the number of their qualified products In such case although some experienced workers can get very high salaries considered the potential profit made by those products I prefer to employ those experienced workers Another equally important reason is that experienced workers mean less accident at the workshop Now peoples insurance consciousness becomes stronger and stronger If the accidents happened the employer will pay enormous compensation fee for injured workers As for the apprentice the accidents are very easily caused and almost inevitable only because heshe has no enough work experiences In effect the factory or company can fully avoid these accidents and unnecessary financial loss through hiring experienced employees Moving on to the wider theme experienced workers are also the pledge of factories and companies ability Now people have gradually realized that experienced worker that is so-called talents will be the most important factor for the enterprises future prosperity Such as many famous companies prefer to provide more attractive welfare than other companies in order to get their ideal talents and then keep themselves long stable development Of course as far as saving enterprises expense is concerned a lower salary may be a better appeal for some companies or factories But if all the factors are contemplated the advantages of experienced workers carry more weight than those of inexperienced workers There are many other reasons that should be considered but all in all I rather hire an experienced employee at a higher salary than employ an inexperienced worker at a lower salary Essay ID 152 Topic 67 When it comes to whether an employer should hire workers with less experiences and lower pay or to hire experienced workers with a higher salary since there are always advantages and
TWE Essays 119292 119 disadvantages of the two and there are always different situations my personal option is that different strategy should be applied for different situations For situations where basic and simple jobs which requires less training and cutting down the cost is important for the survival of the business I would prefer to hire someone who has less experience and willing to work under a lower pay For example a factory should hire more inexperienced laborers to work on the part of the plant where less skill but more physical strength is needed and a restaurant owner should hire a cheaper kitchen hand rather than more chefs to cut down the cost of operation On the other hand for situations when more knowledge and skills is crucial for a job I would tend to hire someone who is more experienced and would rather pay more salary Training an inexperienced person for an advanced position can cost a great deal of money and a mistake an inexperienced makes sometimes can bring disaster to a company Therefore an experienced personnel is a valuable asset for a business Sometimes the value cannot be measured by money A company may lost millions of dollars of revenue when some important positions are vacant and it has to look for someone who is qualified or take a lot of time to train a new person In conclusion when we decide whether to hire a inexperienced cheaper worker or an experienced but more expensive worker it is always depend on the nature of the business and the position the amount of training required and of course the employers personal preferences Essay ID 135 Topic 67 If I were an employer I would be glad to hire an inexperienced worker at a lower salary My reasons are as follows First those who can accept the lower salary are those not care too much about money what they care the most is personal development The success and failure of a company are correlated to employees attitude a success company needs some men with the heart that eager to success Second inexperienced men are always modest and friendly they like to learn and listen to others opinion or suggestion so they can improve their working skills by accept some right opinions These are two important characteristics of a good employee not only they can bring success business to the company but also can set up a good company impression to the public Third those inexperienced employees are mostly just graduated from school They are active and enthusiastic to some extent they prefer working together as a team to working alone teamwork can speed up the working efficiency and also make the company fill with energy Since there are so many advantages why not hire inexperienced guys Essay ID 383 This is a 5 point essay Topic 67 Some employers prefer to hire people who have work experiences and pay them higher salaries They may think that if they want to make a success in business they have to do so If I were an employer however I would rather hire the inexperienced employees and paid them a relatively lower salaries I do not care about whether experiences an employee has or not I really care about the cost Besides it needs not only experiences to do a job well and experienced workers

TWE Essays 130292 130 From the above analyses it is not difficult to get the conclusion that grades encourage students to learn Grades give students the stress and make them compete with each other so that they must study and work hard to succeed Essay ID 265 Topic 72 Almost in every modern society grades play an import role in assessing students academic abilityThere are all kinds of tests to winnow out weak students Knowledge itself is so complicate and vast each one of the test usually cant cover every aspect of it So I wonder whether grades can really encourge students to learn The basic reason why I disapprove of the title statement lies in the belief that grades usually dont have positive impact on student who is strong or weak alike Take the example of student who has high grades If Tom got good grades in the class normaly he cant feel conceited This situation certainly wont lead him into finding some blind spots or weak points in his study And he wont realize that may be just his good memorizatation helps him a lot or this kind of test suits him well Lets us look another example Suppose Johnny isnt good at memorization but he is at home with analyzation and deduction Unfortunately he got poor grades in tests facilitate memorization One can foresee what harm will bring to him due to the poor grades In all these cases the grades play a negative role in encourging students to learn Most important of all the grades usually a convenient way of assessing a students academic ability But it is by no means a scientific one Teachers cant determine from the grades whether the student is hardworkingdiligent or out of cram The tests given to all students regardless of their individuals character traits just like force everyone to wear shoes of same size Famous educationist Confucius said two thousands years ago quotTeach students in accordance of their aptitudequot Our world is a colorful world so should be our educational world Grades especially poor grades will frustrate greatly potential successful students to learn It will give them a flase impression that their intelligence may be inferior to other studentsThe worst thing about poor grades is that it may have repercussions in a underachievers heart when all his fellow students and teacher have long forgotten In fact the potential talent of a student will be strangled by those poor grades A real pity to the student himself and the society Last but not the least there is some advantage in taking grades as a tool to evaluate students academic performance As in my humble opinion they should be combine with other scientific methods to encourge students to gain knowledge but not solely focus their energy on how to win high grades After all it is the knowledge that it is power not the grades Essay ID 535 Topic 72 A lot of people claim that marks in tests encourage students to learn I agree with this statement because examinations are a good way for a student to review what students have learned test scores are a standard measurement for students learning ability and knowledge level and the test system can benefit their future First of all tests are important for students learning Attending classes is not enough for students to learn the subjects no matter how carefully they listen to what teachers say They need examinations to review the lessons In most cases grades or marks are the only means by which
TWE Essays 131292 131 teachers measure students learning ability and learning progress Therefore grades encourage students to study for examinations and it is good system for them to learn the subjects Secondly test scores are a standard measurement for students learning ability and knowledge level Most people would agree with this therefore universities all over the world take test results as a standard measurement to give admission to new students to offer fellowships and to decide whether to grant a student graduation High school teachers use test results as a means to evaluate the effects of teaching and students learning progress By test scores teachers also know each individual students ability to learn Thirdly test results can stimulate a student to work hard on his courses The testing mechanism encourages students to work hard in order to achieve a better result they will devote more time on study and develop a quotnever give upquot spirit This will not only benefit their study but also teach them a truth that everyone needs constant learning and hard working in order to be useful to this society Students who have developed such learning habit and never give up nature will not only have good performance in schools but can also superior to others in other aspects for example such natures are important factors even after finishing schools I believe most students understand the importance of these qualities and impacts on their life therefore they know how important it is to work hard and try to achieve a better score In conclusion marks can stimulate student to learn and good marks can give them advantages in going to a good university and finding a good job Therefore I strongly support the statement that marks can encourage students to learn Essay ID 158 Topic 73 The use of computer is increasingly popular in modern society Some people think that the computer makes life more convenient and easier because they can compile documents buy goods through the Internet and do other works on the computer Nevertheless in my opinion the computer makes life more complex and stressful There are many instances supporting my opinion Before the computer was invented people only need to learn the knowledge of mathematics physics chemistry and so on However today people have to learn how to operate the computer to use a variety of software and if the computer does not work people have to learn how to repair it People have to learn not only the knowledge of software but also that of hardware No ending learning makes people exhausted and their life more complex The computer also makes life more stressful The society in which we live is called quotinformation societyamp quot Thanks for the development of the computer the rhythm of life are increasingly rapid The business men has so many meetings to attend so many e-mails to deal with that they have no time to have his lunch Some students have to work late on the computer to do the homework at night There are more and more people struggling from the nervous sickness and complaining the quotbusy lifequot The rapid development of the computer makes people feel stressful too The new generation of the software and the hardware the update of them all of these make people have to pay more and more time and money on their computers Although the computer has become an indispensable part of our life it can be concluded from the above statements that the computer makes life more complex and stressful
TWE Essays 132292 132 Essay ID 269 Topic 73 Some people say that computers have made life more complex and stressful but I totally disagree In my opinion computers have really made our lives easier and more convenient in communicating getting informed and doing research work if you have known how to work with a computer The e-mail service and Internet based on computer make us communicating with others much easily and conveniently In the past we have to write letters or meet in person in order to communicate with others The mails seem to take forever to arrive and meeting in person means to put out a lot of efforts Now the e-mail lasts only a few seconds to send and to receive and we can always meet new people even foreigners in chat room whenever we set up our computers It really makes our socializing easier The news on the Internet is being broadcasted 24 hours everyday and tailored to your specific interests You can always connect your telephone and modem with a computer to read them Listening to radio or watching television can be informed with what are happening around you conveniently too but just on the computer can you easily read the specific news in which you are interested without having to buy newspapers So up to now it is the most convenient way to read news at home Besides it is very convenient and much easy to do research work with a computer turning on You can save your work on computers too easily more than just typing a few letters no matter what your work is even audio or video data You can also type a few keys to print them out neatly Also you can search whatever materials you want without the trouble of looking for books or magazines in libraries Some people think that computers have made life complex and stressful They may not be very familiar with computers or do not know how to work with a computer efficiently It does not matter Only after a few weeks of training they can probably easily enjoy the convenience of computers in socializing reading news and doing research job Essay ID 533 Topic 73 Some people believe that computers provide easier and more convenient lives for them In their opinion computers help them surf internet and share information They may communicate directly by Email But others hold that computers have made life more complex and stressful and they point out that computers bring many bad effects to human beings such as information security problem because of hacking attack and environmental pollution because of irradiation As far as I concerned I prefer the first opinion rather than the second view My opinion comes from following three aspects First of all computer made life more efficient than before For example people might access websites gain a lot of valuable information and contact each other around the world Secondly computer made life more relax and easier Computers provide varity kinds of games and people could enjoy and relax from them everyday Finally compute help people solve many complicated problem by software such as investment and finance Therefore peoples life become more simple and convenient

TWE Essays 134292 134 travel The argument for this view goes as follows In the first place there are many advantages when people travel in a group First people will not feel boring in a long trip People can talk laugh and make joking like a big family Second the group will help you a lot when you have any emergency The people in the group could help you figure out the awkward situation that will be unimaginable when you travel alone Third with the group discount such as the discount for airplane ticket the hotel and the admission ticket travelers can save a lot of money when they use the group discount In the second place there are many advantages too when people travel led by a tour guide The tour guide will arrange all the details about the trip in advance The traveler need not worry about where to find the hotel where to rent the car and how to find the direction It will make the trip a little bit easy Another advantage is that led by a tour guide will save much time than traveling alone With the professional knowledge tour guide will make the smartest schedule I would never forget that one of my friend a city tour guide in the Shanghai China said that she can lead traveler to visit the whole city by one day which people should spend two or three days to finish it In conclusion there are many advantages when people travels in a group led by a tour guide such as save money save time do not feel boring and is easy to take care of Therefore I strongly agree that the best way to travel is in a group led by a tour guide Essay ID 247 Topic 74 No doubtI do strongly advocate this idea that the best way to travel in a group led by a tour guide There are numerous reasons why I agree with this opinion and I would in here explain a few of the most imporant ones At first I can get many conveniences if I travel in a group led by a tour guide I dont worry about some things such as residence transportation and eating During the whole journey I can completely enjoy the pleasure of traveling without being disturbed by some trivial things Another reason why I agree with this idea is that traveling with a group people is more enjoyable than traveling alone We can share with the beautiful view each other and can express our feeling each other In addition if I encounter certain difficulities there will be many people to help me So this traveling pattern will also more safe The last reason is that a tour guild will let us learn more knowledge about where we will go because we arent familiar with that place Maybe due to our ignorance we will miss many interesting places without a tour guild Understanding the reasoning above it is quite safe now to say the best way to travel is in a group led by a tour guild Essay ID 248 This is a 5 point essay Topic 74 Some people may think that the best way to travel is in a group led by a tour guide but it is just where I differ from those people I think the best way to travel is to travel alone If I travel alone I can enjoy the pleasure of meeting new people trying new things and totally relaxing However
TWE Essays 135292 135 if I am to travel with a group led by a tour guide this pleasure seems impossible Travel alone means that I can meet new people more freely I can meet not only the other travelers but also the local residents whenever I travel to a new place If the person I want to meet is not available at the present time I can even reschedule my time But if I travel in a group led by a tour guide I have to stick to the schedule I have to take other peoples time into consideration That means I will lose a lot of chances to meet new people Travel alone also means I can try new things personally I can go anywhere I want and do something different from my lifestyle However if I travel in a group the place where I go and the things that I will deal with are all arranged and fixed in advance I have no choice but to follow That will be miserable for me as a traveler When I finally mange to take a travel I want to relax myself totally Work is too hard to do and I am really eager to have an enjoyable break However I am in a group and I have to stick to the travel schedule to consider the other group members feelings to go wherever the tour guide leads to That seems just like I am on my duty at work again I cannot really get relaxation I always prefer to travel alone I would like to meet a lot of different people experiencing new things on my way in traveling I think that only scheduling my travel time more casually can make me relax completely Would not that be the only purpose of traveling I would like to encourage you to travel alone too In any case do not travel in a group led by a tour guide Essay ID 534 Topic 74 There are basically two ways of traveling traveling in a group led by a tour guide or traveling independently There are advantages and disadvantages of the both By traveling in a group you will enjoy the companionship comfort and safety of group travel and learn more information about the place from a tour guide while traveling independently you can maintain the freedom flexibility and individualism Some people say that for most people the best way to travel is in a group led by a tour guide I agree with this opinion Firstly you will enjoy the companionship when traveling in a group Usually a tour group consists of around 20 people These people travel together eat together and stay in the same hotel During the trip you can always find someone you like to talk with and you will never feel lonely as when you are travelling alone Secondly you will enjoy the comfort and safety of group travel When traveling in a group everything is pre-arranged by the travel agent and you do not have to worry about booking a ticket finding a hotel decide what places to visit and so on In the meantime as you are not preoccupied with arranging the trip by yourself you may find yourself concentrate more on the trip itself and enjoy it more In addition it is much safer to travel in a group Your personal safety is always taken cared of by others Thirdly you can learn more information about the place from a tour guide and not worrying about missing an important spot The tour guide will take you to each spot that should be visited and give you detailed information about the place you visit You never have to find information about the places you are going to through the Internet or buy a book from the bookstore Traveling in a group can save you time and money on information searching In conclusion there are many advantages of traveling in a group Although for young people
TWE Essays 136292 136 traveling alone is more advantages and stimulating for most people traveling in a group is the best choice Essay ID 160 Topic 75 Some universities require students to choose a variety of subjects others only require students to specialize in one subject I deem the first one as the premier choice Among countless factors there are three conspicuous aspects as follows The main reason for my propensity that students should take classes in many subjects is that they can make full use of the abundant resources that a university has to offer A university has plenty of educational and research resources It is a very good idea to make full use of these valuable assets while studying in the university The best way to achieve this is to take a variety of subjects as much as possible Through learning these courses a student can get access to knowledge and resources in different areas On the contrary if a student only specializes in one subject he will not have a chance to get access to other resources offered by the university Another reason can be seen by every person is that by choosing many subjects students can broaden their knowledge and make a solid foundation for their future concentrated study Whatever the student will concentrate on in his senior years in college it is necessary that he choose a wide range of subjects to build the knowledge foundation Take the field of Business Management for example the student has to acquire knowledge in writing accounting economics and human resource management before he can successfully start his major concentration study The argument I support in the first paragraph is also in a position of advantage because students can be more adaptable in their future career if they choose a variety of subjects during their university study and gained a breath and width of knowledge he will be more adaptable to the requirement of the society and be able to easily adjust to many kinds of jobs This will benefit his future career In a word taking into account of all these factors we may reach the conclusion that students should take classes in many subjects in a university Essay ID 161 Topic 75 The whole point of my answer is that it is better for universities to require students to specialize in one subject It is just what the majors are called for even though there are a couple of the advantages of students taking classes in many subjects It is a more sensible decision that universities require students to specialize in one subject They must have known that the depth of a certain subject is infinite while both the students energy and time are limited It probably tells the truth Only when a student just specializes in one subject can he focus on it Thus it ensures the students more likely to be a kind of expert in some subject when they are given the degrees That is just the purpose of so-called education It does not mean that students have not too many classes to attend even if they just specialize one subject There are a lot of sub-subjects or divisions of a main subject The science of journalism

TWE Essays 138292 138 will pose too much pressure on kids and will affect their mother-tongue learning As far as I am concerned I agree that bilingual education should start as early as possible My arguments for this point are listed as follows I agree with the statement without reservation since children learn second languages quickly than adults As we have observed children can learn languages faster than adults and immigrant children translate for their parents who have not learned the language and that child learners speak without a foreign accent whereas this is impossible for adult learners Therefore the earlier kids learn a second language the less difficulties they would meet when they grow up and have to face a foreign language speaking environment Another reason why I agree with the above statement is that I believe that bilingual education can be fun and stimulate childrens learning interest Many parents and teachers know how to teach kids a second language in an interesting way One of my students told me that when he was in kindergarten every day his mum taught him a few Chinese characters as well as their meaning in English As time passed the kid became keen to learn English Sometimes he gave mum and dad a quiz by speaking some English words and asking them what their meaning is Bilingual education will not affect the mother-tongue study of children As we are living in an environment of pure Chinese conversation and traditional culture it is impossible for us to give up our culture and language Teachers also are trying to arrange the curriculum in a proper way For Bilingual education has become a trend No matter we like it or not future educational undertakings will become more international and exchanges between schools throughout the world will increase Given this speaking a common language is important and to this purpose bilingual teaching is an inevitable way Essay ID 164 Topic 77 Should boys and girls attend separate schools This question is very arguable Before rendering my opinion lets consider the advantages for boys and girls to attend separate schools Since boys and girls are different in many ways they have different hobbies and the ways to learn new things If they attend separate schools the education can be more efficient because the school can teach them differently according to their personalities But the disadvantages of it is greater While boys and girls attend separate schools therere few chances for them to communicate with opposite sexes which will become a handicap for them to communicate with each other in their future As far as I concerned boys and girls should not attend separate schools Among countless reason one can think of the first and foremost reason is that people should have experience with opposite sex when they are in school because in a society therere both males and females people have to learn how to communicate with the opposite sex which is a essential factor for people to succeed Moreover people have to learn from opposite sex For example while females should learn braveness from males males should learn carefulness from females In addition in a family to learn from opposite sex becomes more important to keep the family harmonious In addition the knowledge of opposite sex is also important without such knowledge dealing with the relationships with opposite sex becomes extremely difficult especially after ones married
TWE Essays 139292 139 Finally as we can see its definitely important for boys and girls to attend schools together so that they can learn from each other communicate with each other and they can know each other well which is very valuable for their future Essay ID 537 Topic 77 Nowadays some may hold the opinion that boys and girls should attend separate schools others have a negative attitude As far as I am concerned I agree that boys and girls should go to separate schools My arguments for this point are listed as follows I agree with the statement since single-sex education provide a environment for boys and girls to concentrate on their study Research shows that a single-sex school environment can eliminate the distraction from members of the opposite sex and therefore is academically beneficial to students Girls in an all-female school can establish self-esteem and avoid the situation faced by young women in co-ed schools such as struggle to survive emotionally They will be able to focus more on their academic curriculum sometimes specifically designed and prepare for their future education and career The single-sex setting eliminates social distractions and allows for better concentration on academics Another reason why I agree with the above statement is that traditional gender stereotypes are often reinforced in single-sex academies Boys tended to be taught in more regimented traditional and individualistic fashion and girls in more nurturing cooperative and open environments This will develop their virtue and prepare them for their future roles in the society Taking into account of all these factors we may reach the conclusion that boys and girls should attend separate schools Of course there are also disadvantages of single-gender education and simply separating boys and girls does not always improve the quality of education A lot of efforts should be made to ensure that a single-gender education system be successful implemented Essay ID 165 Topic 78 In a modern society employers always face the dilemma of whether to choose a person to work with a group of people or to work independently This problem is a much-debated one in that it affects everybody in his or her daily lives While both of the ways may have their advantages and disadvantages they can be applied under different circumstances Afterwards I will explain my opinion about it To work independently has the obvious advantage that it can prove the ability of a employee One can use his own knowledge and way to solve the difficulties met during the work But there lies intrinsic harmful characteristic in this method Some people warn that a person choosing to work independently may lack the ability of communicating with other people Furthermore a persons knowledge and ability are limited We need others help or assistance to solve the problems By means of it we can improve the efficiency so that a company can make good use of human resources On the other hand choosing to work with a group of people also has advantages to some extent From most advertisements we can notice that nowadays more and more companies concentrate on communication skills and team-cooperated abilities The reason is that they believe two heads

TWE Essays 147292 147 In modern society technology has brought us amazing surprises everyday Someone claims that modern technology is creating a single world culture I completely disagree with this statement I will list some of my reasons here Firstly I believe that modern technology has improved multi-culturalism and the communication between cultures With modern communication technology such as TVs and phones we can see what people at the other end of the world is doing and with a modern airplane we can travel to every corner of the world This will greatly help us understand the cultural diversity of this world and we will learn to appreciate the cultural difference of people from different part of the earth Secondly modern technology increases the communication between cultures Eastern people can learn good virtual from western culture such as politeness and self-cultivation and western people can also learn a great deal of good virtual from eastern culture such as modesty and filial pity of ones parents By communication one culture can learn from other culture and evolve Thirdly modern technology helps us to preserve our cultural relics and world treasures and discover our culture in the past We can also explore and discover more about our past and have a better understanding of now and the future For instance Xian is famous for its figures of warriors and horses buried in the emperors tombs In the modern world we explore some of these tombs so that we would understand the remote and longstanding culture of Qin Dynasty in Chinas history Indeed modern technology has shorten the distance between cultures and made this world smaller But we cannot say that it is creating a single world culture On the contrary with the help of modern technology we find this world more and more diversify and colorful Essay ID 172 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 84 What things can be widely used in education business government family and almost all the other fields all over the world One answer is the Internet which is a great communication tool in the 21st century Some people claim that the 21st century could not exist without the Internet Therefore children and young adults should use the Internet freely everywhere Personally I have the impression that there are some flaws in this seemingly indisputable proposition Children and young adults should not use the Internet freely for three reasons and some safe programs and filters are indeed needed in the Internet For one thing the children and young adults that use the Internet freely might get the wrong information by chance Children and young adults can be influenced easily by many new things The Internet is so wide that it includes some wrong information such as violence and pornography That information can cause many bad effects on the children and young adults which are bad for them are growing For example there is some violence information in the Internet After the children and young adults watch that by chance they might follow the violence way from the Internet to solve the problems Consequently we have to use some kinds of software to block this kind of information This highly technical software has already been developed well Parents can just trust this kind of software in order to prevent children from accessing the blocked websites which includes the wrong information For another thing the children and young adults using the Internet freely might cause some computer problems As the Internet is used on the computers it is related to the computers closely The computer is a highly technical machine that sometimes is hard to control As a result some bad things may have loopholes to get into the computer such as the computer viruses If the
TWE Essays 148292 148 children and young adults use the Internet freely without some safe programs their computers will probably be infected with computer viruses For example many years ago I used my computer on the Internet without any safe programs One day I found my computer was abnormal and called a computer expert to look over it He said my computer must be infected with computer viruses from the Internet and suggested I use the safe program to prevent the viruses Since then I have used the Internet with the safe program every time and never get the computer viruses any more In addition there are also some computer hackers on the Internet who always attack others computers or steal the data from others computers which is a serious problem for the computer users Therefore a safe program is really needed for the computer users to prevent the viruses and hackers while they are using the Internet Furthermore by using some filters we can save a lot of time to distinguish the useful and unnecessary information Most people use the Internet to find and get information There are so great quantities of information on the Internet that we usually have to spend quite a long time to find the useful information Whereas if we use some filters we can distinguish the useful and unnecessary information easily For example my E-mail box always receives some pornographic junk mail which are very disagreeable After I use the filters to block those mails senders that mail cannot get into my E-mail box any more However the Internet is such an interesting thing that people who enjoy it may keep on surfing on the net People who have little ability of self control will lose themselves in the information highway spending a long time in front of the screen which is absolutely bad for their health Thus the filters are quite useful when we use the Internet Some people hold that children and young adults use the Internet freely can widen their eyes of the world However I think using the Internet with the filters can also get the information much enough to widen their eyes Most parents do not use the filters because they do not know how useful the filters are The filters are so good now that we can choose the different ways to get the different kinds of information Using the filters can make the limit to help the children and young adults kown more about the things that are useful for them If the children and young adults use the Internet freely they may lose their directions As a result they might not only widen their eyes but also waste a lot of time The filters can help us to prevent getting into the websites that we will never use them anyway so that we could widen our eyes of the world by using the filters As the Internet becomes more and more popular the way of using Internet will also become more and more advanced Consequently children and young adults should use the Internet with some new advanced programs to get the information easily They should try to learn the better way to use the Internet such as by the safe programs and filters As a result the Internet will be really good for them Essay ID 452 Topic 84 The Internet Provides people with a lot of information but is this information valuable or so much information create problems for us In my point of view every thing has its two sides and the value of the Internet far outweighs the disadvantages it brings to us The Internet has been beneficial to people around the globe My view is a commonsense one based on the fact that the Web is a vast storehouse of information and opinion which can be scientific literary political sporting or sexual Anyone with access to a computer and a dialup connection can unlock the door and trawl through its offerings The Internet can be used as a broad base of knowledge that contributes to the educational system Students and teachers benefit from the use of the Internet as well as administrators and others

TWE Essays 159292 159 Essay ID 390 This is a 5 point essay Topic 96 Stress is one of our biggest enemies It affects our health our personality and our relationships with others In order to get rid of stress I first have to identify the cause I have different antidotes to stress depending on the cause The most common types of stress I face are with work with friends and with myself Work-related stress is the easiest to combat I simply stop working for a while If I find myself picking up the same piece of paper four times a day and never doing anything with it I blame stress If I find- myself staring at the computer without finishing a report I blame stress The best thing to do is to do something else Sometimes I get up from my desk and go down the hall to talk to my colleagues but I dont talk about work related subjects Other times I will take a short walk around the block and get some fresh air Work-related stress can be cured by getting away from the work Stress caused by friends is more difficult to cure Often the cause is more complicated My friends could have a personal problem that causes them and me both anxiety Or my friends could be angry at me or vice versa Here the cure for stress is talking about the problem and being with my friends Unlike work you cant walk away from your friends Stress I cause myself is also not so easy to get rid of If I feel bothered by an exam or anxious about the future there is very little for me to do I just have to tell myself that I can only do my best and leave the rest up to fate It is important to try to lead a stress-free life If you can avoid stress by walking away from it like at work talking through it like with your friends or facing it head on like with yourself your health personality and relationships will benefit Essay ID 185 Topic 97 Some communities have decided to base evaluations of teachers on students test scores Its these evaluations that determine how much teachers will be paid I dont think this is a very good idea for several reasons First of all if teachers salaries are going to be based on how much students learn then some teachers will start to teach their students only what they need to get high test scores This means that students will miss out on a lot of education that cant be measured on a test For instance one of the best methods to help students understand a subject is encouraging them to discuss it A common practice is to divide the class into groups have each group discuss the subject and then have them report back to the whole class This kind of shared learning can lead to a fuller understanding It also teaches students how to discuss and debate ideas However it doesnt supply facts to show off on a test Another problem with basing teachers salaries on how much their students learn is that teachers may ignore students who have learning difficulties Some students learn more slowly than others and need more personal attention If a teacher is worried about tests he may feel he has to push the majority of the students to cram facts That effort will take all his time He wont be able to
TWE Essays 160292 160 help the less able students Its true there are teachers who quotburn outquot after many years teaching and just dont care how much their students learn Basing their salaries on their students test scores may improve their efforts However its not fair for the majority of teachers They deserve and need to be judged by other criteria Essay ID 186 Topic 98 If I were asked to send one thing representing my country to an international exhibition Id send something unexpected one weeks worth of television programming These programs would best represent my country They show how the citizens of my country live and what they think and feel The dramas on television are very realistic They show how people in different parts of the country go about their daily lives They show how they earn their livings how they deal with crime and how they interact with each other The dramas also show how people in various economic groups dress what kinds of houses they live in and what kinds of education their children receive The comedies indicate what people in my country think is funny Even though the situations are exaggerated they reflect how my culture deals with very basic human situations People everywhere understand falling in love raising a family and earning a living Essay ID 187 Topic 99 Id rather have the university assign a roommate to share a room with me As far as Im concerned this is part of the university experience Students should meet new people and be open to new experiences I like leaving this up to chance Actually even though the university will choose its not totally a matter of chance We all filled out information sheets The school knows what were majoring in what our interests are and our study habits and our goals I think theyre probably very good at matching roommates using this information Theyve had a lot of practice Besides if a mistake is made I can change my room assignment next semester If I did want to choose my own roommate Id first pick some candidates from the list supplied by the university Then Id write to them and theyd write back Through our letters wed find out if we shared common interests such as sports or movies More importantly wed find out if we liked doing the same things in our free time Because of my investigation Id probably get someone compatible with me Its a lot of work to go through though Besides the process of finding similar interests isnt all that different from what the university does Trying to predict whom Im going to get along with is not a science I might choose someone who sounds just like me and still find that the two of us just dont get along as roommates Besides I think it would be boring to room with somebody whos just the same as me Id rather be with someone who has different interests and likes to do different things Maybe Id even get a roommate from another culture After all one of the reasons Im going to the university is to be exposed to a lot of new experiences So Id rather have the university choose my roommate for
TWE Essays 161292 161 me Essay ID 188 Topic 100 I realize that its important to stay up to date with our technology So much like our space and defense programs depends on it Ive also read that we shouldnt let other governments get ahead of ours in the race for better technology This could eventually put us at a disadvantage and our whole economy could suffer Despite all this I think our government should spend our tax dollars on more basic items before it gets into the business of developing computer technology We have so many problems in our society and it seems every solution needs money For instance we talk about getting people off welfare To do that we need money to give them jobs until they can support themselves That means support training day care for their children and probably a monthly rent subsidy All of those things can cost hundreds of millions of dollars However if we could solve a major problem like that wouldnt it improve our society even more than new technology Another problem is that our transportation system is falling apart Bridges have cracks in them Highways buckle Accidents happen because of these problems We shouldnt put money into improving a computer chip when we have basic needs like these Besides why should the government be in the business of developing technology Arent there several very successful corporations doing just that Yes its probably less expensive in the long run for the government to develop-the technology Nevertheless in the short run there are basic needs in our society that arent being met I think thats where the money should go Essay ID 189 Topic 100 Some people think that government should spend as much money as possible on developing or buying computer technology while others do not As far as I am concerned this money should be spent on some more basic needs such as protecting the environment and improving the public service In the first place nowadays the pollution of environment has become the main concern in the advanced society The research said that human being would not find the clean water to drink if they did not do some work to keep their water clean There would be no fresh air if every people in the city drive car to go and from work And there would be no more wild animals if people let the forest be destroyed like what is to be done now For example the forest which is the main habitat of the various animals has been destroyed More and more wild animals face the danger of extinction because of the shortage of habitats Therefore there are more basic things that a successful government should do such as keeping the water clean keeping the air fresh and keeping the animal healthy In the second place some public service such as the public transportation in the city also is a big problem The bus in the rush hours is overcrowded some people cannot go to work on time because they do not catch the regular bus some commuters spent too much time on the bus or train because of the traffic on the road Consequently government should spend more money to improve their public transportation which will benefit their people a lot and benefit them instantaneously
TWE Essays 162292 162 From what I have discussed above everyone can see that there are more things a government should do than buying computer such as protecting the environment and improving the public service Therefore I think a successful government should spend more money on the basic demands of their people instead of spending as much money as possible on developing or buying computer technology Essay ID 296 Topic 101 Heres the problem Im sloppy Thats why I like to use machines to do my work rather than do things by hand Machines can be creative precise and efficient Most people think that you can only be creative if you do things by hand However it takes creativity to set the machine up Once its set up it can repeat the same task over and over and over perfectly If you want to write ten letters you can set up your word processor to do it press a button and ten letters will be printed It would take me forever by hand and I would make a lot of mistakes By hand each letter would be different By machine each one is perfect Machines are very precise They dont get tired and cut the wrong way They dont get distracted and drop some mustard on the paper As I said Im sloppy but I like neatness Thats why I prefer to use machines Machines are also more efficient Im too tired to pick up the phone and see who is calling me My answering machine isnt tired Its always on duty It doesnt get tired upset or moody I can depend on my machines but I cant always depend on my hand to be creative precise or efficient Essay ID 191 Topic 101 In general there are two ways of making products one is by hand and the other is by machine It is undeniable that products can be manufactured easily and efficiently by machine due to simply repeated operations But for me I prefer hand-made items for their features of individualism acceptability and flexibility First of all hand-made products are more personal Take birthday cards as example instead same pictures on selling cards in the market the well-chosen images on a self-made cards such as peoples own photos surely distinguish the card from those selling ones Owing to the uniqueness the self-designed card will be of greater value for the person who receives it Whats more things made by hand are fitter and more suitable This can be seen from the story of ordering formal clothes such as mens suit and ladys evening dress the ready-made kinds of which actually are easy to find in fashion shops Needless to say how often famous figures like Princess Diana visit worldwide known fashion designers Nowadays more and more ordinary people go for tailor-made clothing rather than buy those machine-made clothes from market simply because tailors can make clothing precisely according to customers measurement and their own styles Obviously fitness and suitability are what those people care about most Finally producing items by hand is more flexible It releases people from being confined by some

TWE Essays 169292 169 Essay ID 197 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 107 Depending on personal experience personality type and emotional concern some people hold the opinion that a college education should be available to all students meanwhile others consider the idea that higher education should be available only to good students in somehow more preferable As far as I am concerned I have to declare myself as one of these who agree that higher education should be offered to all the students Among countless factors which influence my choice there are three conspicuous aspects listed as follows The first and foremost cause for my propensity is that all students should have the same opportunity to attain a further chance of studying Born equally as all of us it is impartial that we all can approach a better education From the view of equity it will be unfair that some students get the best possible education while others are denied from a college education Another reason why I cast my preference for the point that higher education should open to all students is that our high-education should serve the function of educating the whole country not merely for a minority of its people Beyond these obvious aspects there is a further subtle point which we must take into our account It would not be too kindly disposed to the bare idea that allowing barely fantastic students to enter universities because it is economical for part of people to be better educated with limited resources of all kinds Nonetheless pound for pound I reckon that the consideration that higher education should be accessible to all students is awfully advantageous To sum up a higher education is never absolutely just a dream of the students without a terrific mark It is a dilemma for the public to choose from the two object opinions because they are from time to time confused by the seemingly good qualities of the thinking that higher education is available merely to good students but neglect the genuinely good qualities of the true one From the factors presented above I strongly commit to the notion that a further education should be rendered more widely and openly Essay ID 196 Topic 108 Both learning through personal experience and learning through the advice of others can help you in life If you dont have a lot of knowledge about something the advice of people you trust can be very valuable They can tell you about their own experiences and about the advantages and disadvantages of a situation Then you can consider your own wants and needs and decide what you should do Pretty soon youll have more experience of your own When you re thinking about what you want to do with your life friends and relatives are a great resource They can give you information about things like jobs school volunteering and traveling to other parts of the world Theyve done a lot of learning in their lives and you can use it to decide what you want to do with yours In some cases theres no real substitute for personal experience For example I really dont like to make presentations in class I know Ill make mistakes even if Im thoroughly prepared and know all about my topic Nothing but experience can help me deal with the nervousness I feel I know that the feedback I get from the teacher and from the other students will help me learn from those

TWE Essays 171292 171 of opportunities to practice it Another way of adapting to the customs of a new country has to do with how family members interact Different countries have different ideas about how family members should relate to each other Sometimes the adults will oppose changing what was normal in their native country This can be a difficult adjustment to make especially if their children are visiting new friends at home and seeing how different things are in the new country I believe that people who want to make their home in a new country need to find a balance They should keep the best of their native culture and adopt the good things they find in their new country Essay ID 200 Topic 110 If I had to choose between spending time alone or spending time with my friends Id rather be alone I need this time alone to quotrecharge my batteriesquot to re-energize my mind and spirit Being with friends can be fun and can help you get through the rough spots in life but its the time alone I think that forms you as a person When Im alone I have time to think about my goals and to develop a strategy to reach them Of course lean think about these things when Im with others but its harder to concentrate in a crowd Being alone gives me the quiet time to really think about my life and what I want to do with it Being by myself is also a good way to listen to the silence and relax completely When Im alone I can practice meditation and lower my stress level Thats a very good way to sharpen my powers of concentration Too much time with friends means filling my mind with a lot of chitchat Thats enjoyable for a moment but can dull my concentration Being with other people can also distort my view of things Its easy sometimes to become too worried about what other people think of me or what other people have that I dont When Im alone I have time to step back I can see the real value of things without being influenced by the opinions of my friends Its natural to want to be with other people but I find the time I spend alone is more valuable to me in the long run Essay ID 201 Topic 111 I think I prefer to have many different friends because we can learn more from having many different types of friends If we have just a few close friends then we cannot learn as much as we can if we have many friends Therefore I think it is better to have many different friends First having many different friends can teach us about life and the world I think you can learn many things about many different countries if you know people from all over the world For example if you have a friend from China and one from Iran you can learn more about those two countries If you just have friends from your country then you do not learn very much about the world
TWE Essays 172292 172 We can also have many different kinds of experiences if we have many different kinds of friends For example some people like sports others like music still others like to study If we have many different friends with many different interests then we can never feel bored and we can have a happy life Finally if we have many different friends then maybe we can have more help from people when we need it For example if we need some kind of help with something but we dont know too many people then it might be difficult for us to get help However if we know many people then it will be easy for us to find help when we need it Therefore I believe that it is better to have many different friends in our lives Having many friends can teach us about the world we can have more fun with different friends and we can get help more easily if we have many different friends Essay ID 298 This is a 5 point essay Topic 111 We all need to have friends and I think the more friends we have the better Friendship helps us learn how to trust others what to expect from others and how to profit from experiences I want to have a lot of friends around me sol can learn more about myself from different people I want to have people around me that I trust and that I can depend on We all need friends both in times of trouble and in times of happiness If I only have a few friends it impossible that they might not be available if I need them If I have a lot of friends it is more likely that they will be able to share my troubles or my good fortune I want to have people around me that surprise me If I have just one or two friends I know what to expect from them I know how they will react If I have a lot of friends around me I will always be surprised Each will have a different way of reacting to a situation Observing this reaction and responding to it will teach me how to deal with strangers whom I might meet I want to have people around me that can teach me something about life If I only have a couple of friends I will know everything about them very quickly If I have hundreds of friends think what I will learn Each day theyll teach me something new and show me a new way of thinking about something I have a lot to learn in life so I want as many people as possible to help me I want a lot of friends to show me how to have a good time Ill do the same for them Essay ID 202 Topic 112 There is much discussion above when should children begin to study Some people think that children should start learning as early as possible Other people however argue that young children could begin to study late As far as I am concerned young children should spend most of their time playing and not begin studying too early Why do some people think that children should begin to study early For one thing children are very good at learning because they have good memory and accept new things quickly If they waste their time when they are young they probably need to spend much more time in learning
TWE Essays 173292 173 the same thing when they are older As we all know learning a foreign language is a pain to adults but is very easy to a child under ten Although I agree there may be one or two advantages for children to begin to study early I insist that the advantages of learning late far overweigh them In the first place people who spend most of their time playing could be more creative Learning more means that children can know more but also more restrictions will be pushed on them If children play more they may find many things interesting in their playing and raise many questions such as quotwhy can this happenquot quotCan I invent such a thing to help mequot As a result they always have more wonderful thoughts than those who begin studying very early which helps them to study and work creatively when they grow up In the second place children could be more anxious to learn when they grow up if they spend most of their time playing It is known that children like to play Even if parents force them sitting in front of the table they cannot concentrate on the studying stuff Instead they are thinking how to finish the study early and go to play They will be bored in studying when they grow up since they think they study for their parents But Children who spend most of their time playing do not have the bad memory of studying When they grow up they will be willing to study even if parents do not monitor them because they feel they are studying for themselves In conclusion I believe that young children should play more not only because that they will be more creative but also because they will be more anxious to learn when they grow up Therefore I strongly hold that all parents should not push their young children into studying too early Essay ID 538 This is a 5 point essay Topic 112 Should children play more or study more The question is what will be better for the child There are benefits to both activities but the answer depends on the details of the situation There are many things that could affect the outcome of the argument What kind of a school is it It could be a school where children sit at their desks all day long memorizing dates and facts Or it could be a school where the teacher helps the children learn what they want to learn I think the second kind is a lot better for a child than the first kind Similarly what kind of play are we talking about The child could be alone all day long watching television which could make him or her bored and lonely Or the child could be involved in group activities with neighborhood children of the same age which could help him or her learn how to get along with others I think both study and play are valuable so I mould prefer to send my child to a school where there is a combination I think a variety of activities makes learning easier for anyone at any age Essay ID 203 Topic 113 The first advantage of having a new university built in my community would be the jobs it would bring to the community Initially the jobs would be those connected with the actual building of the university structures such as brick layers and carpenters Once the buildings were completed the jobs would be those on the campus itself Those would include teachers office workers custodians and librarians
TWE Essays 174292 174 Not all of the people the university hired would already be members of the community so that would mean a lot of new people coming to town Of course a lot of students would come too Two advantages of new people in town would be more taxpayers and a more diverse population With more people paying taxes there would be more money for schools libraries and other community needs With a more diverse population there would be new stores new restaurants to serve different tastes and new cultural influences Of course there would also be disadvantages More people living in the community could mean more houses being built There would be more traffic on the streets with the combination of new residents and students who bring their cars Plus more people would mean more public services would be needed These services could include everything from trash collection to more schools to hold all the children of the new residents New services might mean local taxes would have to go up even though there would be more taxpayers Another disadvantage is that the personality of our community would change It would go from being a place where everybody knows everybody else to a place where a lot of people are strangers It would become a place with a lot of short-term residents like the university students who might not care as much about the town Communities always change over time though and overall I like the atmosphere of a quotcollege town quotA new university would bring a lot of challenges but I think it would be worth it Essay ID 204 Topic 114 Although friends make an impression on your life they do not have the same influence that your family has Nothing is as important to me as my family From them I learned everything that is important I learned about trust ambition and love Your family is with you forever They are not going to leave you because they find another daughter they like better They are not going to leave you because they think you are too much trouble A family is permanent while friends come and go Your parents are your role models They will encourage you to do your best to push yourself and to improve yourself Friends want you to stay the same they dont want you to be different A family is ambitious for you Friends are not Your family teaches you about love A familys love is not judgmental They love you for everything you are Friends may love you because you have a new car or because you go out with them on Saturdays A family loves you Friends only like you Without my family I wouldnt know what to do I wouldnt feel as secure I might not have the ambition to go to school I probably would be afraid to love My family is my greatest influence Essay ID 205 Topic 114 It is true that both of the family and friends play important roles in influencing young adults and it is really hard for us to tell which is the most important influence

TWE Essays 181292 181 Topic 120 I disagree with the statement that the decisions people make quickly are always wrong However I think those decisions probably turn out to be wrong more often than carefully made decisions do Usually fast decisions are based on what we call our quotgut reactionsquot or feelings we have about a situation Sometimes these gut reactions are based on good sense backed by experience but sometimes theyre based on nonsense or poor reasoning Lets say youre at work and the boss calls you to his office and tells you theres a big project that needs to be done He thinks youre the best person for the job but he needs an answer from you on the spot He hasnt told you what the project is but you make the quick decision to accept This is the right quick decision because youre basing it on a lot of factors that will occur to you later One is that it wouldnt make sense for the boss to ask you to do something he didnt think you could handle That would only hurt his business Plus doing a good job on this project might help your career You realize its good to reach higher if you want to get ahead But lets say youre on a deserted highway late at night and your car breaks down Along comes a car driven by someone who doesnt seem quite right to you He offers you a ride to the nearest gas station You make the quick decision to accept the ride because its late you re cold and tired and you dont want to sit there waiting for the highway patrol to arrive This is a case where a quick decision is a wrong decision You shouldnt trade your personal safety for physical comfort and if you thought about it you wouldnt How do you know when its okay to make a quick decision You have to be able to guess at the possible benefits versus the possible dangers If its a small decision like where to go to lunch who cares However if my whole future were at stake Id want as much time as I could get to think about it Essay ID 163 Topic 120 Some people argue as if it is a general truth that to make a wrong decision is better than to make no decision at all But to be frank I can not agree with them In my point of view it is sagacious to spend more time on preparing to dicide rather than hurry to make a wrong decision There are numerous reasons why I hold no confidence on them and I would explore only a few primary ones here The main problem with this argument is that it is ignorant of the basic fact that a bad decision will influnce the subsequence steps and produce an unseccessful result even a failure There is a famous saying a good beginning is an half of succeed This proverb explain the important of decision of the beginning while something say the a deleterious effect of a wrong decision For example when a graduate is confronted with the choice the job after leave the campus the first decision is every important for the future work and live An inapposite choice could bring him or she successive problem even mistaken the direction Another reason why I disagree with the above statement is that I believe that not hurry to decide let people have more time to prepare and maybe they find an appropriate approach Since careful plan and deliberate arrangement will become the precondition of suceed then spend more time on preparing is necessary In the instance above the graduate should think over all sorts of the factors such as the qualification of himself or herself the condition of the job and the advisement from consulter of the college and parents
TWE Essays 182292 182 The argument I support in the first paragraph is also in a position of advantage because careful arrangement will discovery the errors and mistakes in the decision And that will have the chance to correct them in order to make a right decision The errors or mistakes could exist in everyones thought I think the best way to eliminate them is think them over So it is sagacious to spend more time on preparing to dicide rather than hurry to make a wrong decision General speaking the deliberate consider can help to avoid the appearance of trouble effectively and to resolve problems successfully Taking into account of all these factorswe may reach the conclusion that it is wiser to make no decision at all than to make a wrong decision Essay ID 279 This is a 5 point essay Topic 121 In our daily life we will always be told a wealth of such cases as a guy who has fallen into love with a girl at the first sight one of your friends who impresses your mother deeply on his or her first visit to your house and then is treated exceptionally well by your hard-to-be-pleased mother and even the applicant who attracts to the HRM human resources manager immediately at the character her conduct and her eloquence etc all of which he or she displays at each others first meet But is all that he or she displays or all that you understand through what he or she displays or hints correct or just a blur image which needs to be proved in the later days Before we get the question to be treated lets think of the most probable not absolutely results of the cases mentioned in the first paragraph of yours who has just won your hard-to-be-pleased mothers trust is criticized by your mother because of his or her great incoherency in the manners and even the newly-employed employee is dismissed because of he is not telling the truth in his resume Till now do you still think the first impressions of a persons character are dependable Psychologically in our head we had a very perfect image of a person of course which varies from one another owing to his of her specific experiences education and family background his or her own opinion about a special view etc and when such a person as confirms with the image in our head pretty congruently presents we will to great extent overestimate or even exaggerate the his or her merits while omit the shortcomings as we can help it Maybe this is the psychological reason thus we can ourselves lead to the answer to the question referred above that the first impressions of a person are generally incorrect and also irresponsible for yourself In a word to judge a person needs time and the first-sight impression is always undependable Essay ID 421 Topic 121 Any opinion is in fact a judgment I feel that as Americans we would do well to judge others less often Still we must be able to decide whom to spend our time with and whom wed rather forget In my opinion this type of judgment is best after we get to know other people First impressions are not always accurate impressions
TWE Essays 183292 183 Judging a person based on a first impression does save time There are more people than anyone could possibly get to know in one lifetime It is frustrating to waste time getting to know someone only to find out that your first impression was correct and that you really dont like him-or her So is it a waste of time getting to know people you probably wont like That seems to be a valid point of view but I believe that it is not the best attitude to take Its more humane to spend time getting to know people before judging them I know that I dont always make a good first impression even when I truly like the person with whom lam interacting We all have bad days I wouldnt want to lose a job or a potential friendship simply because I picked out the wrong clothing or said something wrong I think everyone deserves the chance to make a second impression If we all based our final opinion of others on first impressions it would be hard to get to know anyone There is always more to people than meets the eye If we dont give someone a chance we may be missing out on meeting a life-long friend That would truly be a shame Essay ID 215 Topic 122 I think its probably true that people are never satisfied with what they have They always want something more or something different from what is theirs This just seems to be part of our human nature Look at a toddler Give her a toy to play with and shes happy-until she sees something eke Then she wants that other toy to play with If she and her brother are each given a cookie shell look to see whose cookie is bigger Shell protest loudly if she thinks her brother is getting more quotThe grass is always greenerquot is an old expression but its a good expression of how many of us feel Were always striving for a better job a nicer place to live a fancier car or more expensive clothes Part of this reaching for more and better is because we care about what other people think and want to impress them Part of it is trying to make ourselves feel successful But theres also something in our nature that tells us we can do better and reach higher This isnt always a negative quality Theres another saying quotA mans reach should exceed his grasp or whats a heaven forquot Its a good thing to be constantly pushing ourselves and looking for something different If we dont try for more and different things we begin to stagnate like a pool that doesnt get any fresh water The problem comes when we wont let ourselves be satisfied with anything we have If we have a comfortable life and still feel as if somethings missing then we need to look inward The something thats missing may be in our spirit Essay ID 216 Topic 122 Many of the worlds religions share a belief that when a person is able to look at and confess his or her problems that person can begin to travel the road to emotional recovery A problem cannot be solved until it is clearly recognized I agree with the above statement because I believe that dissatisfaction and suffering forces people to change History presents many examples of dissatisfaction and change The history of China in this
TWE Essays 184292 184 century might be seen as one of dissatisfaction and progress Sun Yet San was discontented with the decaying imperial order and so he created revolution Mao was dissatisfied with the course of events and so he intensified the revolution finally Deng pushed the Chinese economy towards free-market economics Hence China progressed towards its new-found superpower status In a not dissimilar way during the eighteenth century many Americans became annoyed with direct British rule and so the United States fought for and gained political independence On a personal level dissatisfaction can lead to change within friendship and marriage Perhaps it might even be said that true love cannot remain static Matrimony and friendship are explorations of the higher emotions they are pilgrimages towards the city of true values If husband and wife are prepared to confront and discuss their problems a blue period can give way to many years of happiness Sometimes for instance a spouse may not recognize that the source of marital unhappiness is that the other partner has developed a need to have children Whatever else may be said most people would agree that children change the lives of their parents The best method of utilizing dissatisfaction is to change things before they get out of hand An intelligent man will constantly monitor his emotions an intelligent politician will understand the mood of his people Some people might suggest that the transition to independence for Canada and Australia was much smoother than that of the United States because Britain allowed those two dominions to evolve with time To take the idea further a good parent or an astute politician will even anticipate potential dissatisfactions and therefore take precautions I agree with the above statement because I believe that we mature through dissatisfaction Without the ability to recognize our discontent we could collapse into illness Suffering sharpens our senses Essay ID 487 Topic 123 How could anyone suggest that people should only read about real events real people and established facts For one thing that means people wouldnt be reading half of all the great books that have ever been written not to mention the plays short stones and poetry For another it would mean that peoples imaginations would not develop as children and would remain dulled throughout their lives Reading stories as a child helps develop our creativity by teaching us a lot about how to use words to create mental images It opens our world up exposing us to other times and different ways of living Reading histories of those times would serve kind of the same purpose but it probably wouldnt stick in our minds as sharply Reading an essay about poverty in Victorian England is not the same thing as reading Charles Dickens Oliver Twist The images of a small boy being sold are more horrifying than simply reading the statement quotChildren were sold into laborquot because a novel makes that small boy seem real to us Reading fiction makes a more lasting impression on our minds and emotions Besides storytelling is an emotional need for human beings From earliest times humans have taught their children about life not by telling them facts and figures but by telling them stories Some of these stones show what people are like human nature and help us experience a wide range of feelings Some make us think about how we should act Telling a child that its wrong to lie will make little impression but telling him the story of a little boy whose nose grows longer every time he tells a lie will make a big impression

TWE Essays 189292 189 Science and Math subjects are intellectually rewarding as they teach the understanding of theories that improve humans living standards such as researches conducted in universities and science laboratories to enhance the lives of human beings with vaccines constantly being researched produced and tested for incurable diseases Without such a study the world be in serious trouble of poor health and living standards Every theory that is founded would have been tried and tested to prove its success concluding how the study of science and math subjects requires intellectual capabilities in its challenging field While it is essential that the study of the sciences and math continue to ensure a healthy living environment it is also important that a science student receives adequate education in the arts subjects to develop an artistic side of his life A distinct culture of the arts student is his detailed and subjective approach toward a subject which he has particular interests and talent It is the beauty of life amidst all the things that could be explained by a science student and a mystery to study While history had taken place the study of human evolution is equally beneficial in developing a knowledgeable individual It helps enhance an individuals life in the ability to appreciate the beauty that life comes bundled in In conclusion to my opinion it is essential to have a balance in the study of arts and science subjects as they complement an individuals life with knowledge and facts and the ability to appreciate the beauty of life with gods gifts of music literature and art Essay ID 219 Topic 125 I agree that all students should be required to study art and music in high school Ive read that young children who study art and music in grade school do better in their other studies That argument aside we should study art and music for its sake alone We should study art and music to learn more about ourselves our culture and our world Both art and music feed students imaginations and help them express themselves Theres a reason our ancestors in caves drew on the walls and made music with drums Wanting to express ourselves is natural It gives us an avenue for our emotions and fears It may not always be music other people want to hear or art others will appreciate but the activity itself is enjoyable It shouldnt matter if the end result isnt perfect In the process we learn what we like and dislike Studying art and music means more than drawing or playing an instrument Students usually go to art galleries and concerts too By studying the pictures on the museums walls or by reading the program notes at a recital students will learn what society has decided is worthy of praise They learn what is important in their own culture Students may also learn about other cultures by looking at art and listening to music from other countries When they do that theyll see similarities and differences with their own Theyll learn about what is important in other societies Students will also learn how the art and music of other cultures affect our own By studying art and music in high school students begin to understand themselves as well as their own culture and other cultures What could have more value than that Essay ID 221 Topic 126
TWE Essays 190292 190 There is much disagreement over whether there is something that young people can teach older people or not Some people claim that the older know everything better than the younger Other people however argue that the younger can master something that the older do not know As far as I am concerned the older can still learn something from the younger even if the former know more than the latter Why do some people think that the older is more knowledgeable than the younger on anything The main reason is people accumulate knowledge from experience day after day most of which cannot be gained through books For instance an old accountant can handle many difficult accounting affairs while a young one cannot because the former has more experience Although I agree that the older can teach a lot of things to the younger I insist that it pays for the older to learn something from the younger In the first place there is something that the older never know before The computer is the best example As we know the computer was invented in the begining of 1900s and was becoming popular after the Microsoft Windows operation system was released in 1990s The older had rare chances to learn and use the computers On the contrary the younger begin to get to know the computer very early No doubt that the younger know computer better than the older When a person older than 30 years attends a computer course heshe will not be surprised if the teacher is younger than heshe In the second place the younger are more creative and imaginative When the older do something they normally follow some rules they got before It is true the older seldom make mistakes but they also hardly make something new While the younger do not have much experience and do not have many restrictions as well They make mistakes very often but also can make something magnificent In conclusion I believe that the older can learn many things from the younger not only because that the younger know more later technologies but also that the younger have more creative thoughts Essay ID 387 Topic 126 Who says only old people can teach young people We admit that elder people have much more experiences than our young people and it is true that they can give us many guidance when we meet problems or unsolved difficulties However with the rapid development of a modern society young people can also teach the elder people a lot They can update new technologies for the elders share attitudes towards life with them and bring freshness into their lives Since living in a very fast developing society we need to make contact with many new technologies everyday In other words we need to learn everyday to keep up with the latest development For example computers are now very popular but we seldom see the elders to use computers If they can learn how to use them from young people they will definitely be beneficial from this new machine because computers have brought a lot of changes to our lives and made us experience a different life Young people are known for their quick understanding and acceptance new things so I think they can teach the elder about new technologies used in our daily life The attitudes of young people are totally different from old people Mostly they are more positive and energetic than old people They have a different angle to judge something Sometimes the elders are passive towards life because they went through a lot of frustrations on the contrary young people are full of energy towards the life they are always optimistic even though they met some frustrations They proudly say because they are young they can try millions of times In
TWE Essays 191292 191 some degree young peoples attitudes may influence old people Young people also can share with old people what they like which may lead a change of old people As we know most young people like popular music or even rock-and-role However most old people hate that kind of music But I have an example to show that young people can change an elder I have a friend who likes Japanese music very well everyday she plays this music at home Her grandmother often asks her to stop the music and asks her why she likes them very much My friend tells her grandmother about the history of Japanese music and shows a lot of clippings Gradually her grandmother likes Japanese music as well which made us so surprised Now if we go to their house we can see my friend and her grandmother listening Japanese music together and share the feelings as well You must be surprised like me when you know the story but it did happen So no matter what age group you belong to we must believe that everyone has something to share with others and to teach others Old people can give the youngsters lessons and guidance on the other hand young people also can teach the elders new things and different ways towards life Essay ID 380 Topic 126 As is well know older people have experienced this wonderful world a lot and they are surely to have acquired much more knowledge about this world than the young people do Gradually there exists a saying there is nothing young people can teach older people But actually I do not appreciate this statement Young people need to learn a lot from the older people but it is also reasonable for the older people to keep the pace of this world by the means of communicating with the youngsters due to the rapid evolution of this world It means the older people also need to get something new from the youngsters Admittedly from the standpoint view of philosophy young people start to learn about everything from both the theoretical books and experiences then they will grow up in respective way They will put themselves into this practical world trying to find and solve new problems Also many new discoveries and principle will be found by the practice of young people Only through their practice do this world evolve very rapidly Thus everybody in this world can share the results of the social development Otherwise if no new things were found by the young people no creative developments would be made and the society would stop developing It is not our expectation It is just these new things that the older people are sure to be lack so the young people have the responsibility to show the older people what these new things are and how they work For example the advanced usage of computer is just the recent result due to the rapid growth of information technology Many older people do not know how to use the computer those older people get accustomed to the traditional methods and refuse to adjust themselves to the new concepts of this computer times Then young people have the obligation to show those older people how to use the computers because everybody in this society has right to enjoy the advanced computer technology In conclusion on the one hand young people need to learn a lot from the older people in order to meet the practical needs on the other hand the older people also need to communicate with the youngsters Only in this way can the human being benefit from each other and the society evolve rapidly eventually Essay ID 293 This is a 5 point essay Topic 126
TWE Essays 192292 192 Many of us believe that young people have nothing valuable to teach older people However that is not always the case Young people can teach older people about technology youth culture and youth-related social issues Young people are usually better at using new forms of technology than older people Children these days become familiar with computers at an early age Older people can learn to use computers from young people This is true of other technology too For example I taught my grandparents how to use a video cassette recorder when I was thirteen years old They didnt know what it could do until I showed them Now they use it regularly Older people are usually not familiar with youth culture and younger people can help here too This is important because it can help older people live a more enjoyable life For example popular music is generally youth-oriented and older people dont always listen to it However when young people teach them about it they may come to enjoy it My grandmother for example never listened to popular music before Introduced her to it Now she and I listen and dance all the time I plan to teach her about another piece of youth culture-rollerblading-very soon Of course there are more serious issues about which younger people can teach older people As with computers todays children have grown up knowing about AIDS and school violence That is not true for older generations Here again children can teach older people about things that are important to everyone I know there are people who would say quotyou cant teach an old dog new tricksquot However its plain to me that the young have plenty to teach the old if they take the time to try When they do I think both gain a new appreciation for each other Essay ID 222 Topic 127 Reading fiction such as novels and short stories is more enjoyable than watching a movie Of course the images in a movie are much more vivid because youre seeing them on a large screen in a dark room The images you quotseequot in a novel are only as strong as your own imagination But the more you read the stronger your imagination becomes Reading exercises your imaginative powers Watching a movie dulls them Imagination like a muscle needs to be used Otherwise it can disappear When you read youre an active participant in your own enjoyment Thats one reason reading develops the imagination Youre reading the words on the page and translating them into images in your mind When youre watching a movie youre a passive viewer The movie is giving you everything Nothing comes from you except your reaction to what youre seeing and even that can be given you by the movie Some movie plots are so simple you can predict whats going to happen before it does Reading fiction also develops your storytelling skills The more reading you do the better you become at creating plots and characters The plots and characters in movies are often very simple because the emphasis is on action rather than on language or character development Still going to the movies is a great community experience Sitting in a large theater with a lot of other people is fun You experience the same reactions to what youre seeing together Reading is a one-person experience Its a chance to go into an imaginary world by yourself Both experiences can be fun and rewarding but I think reading fiction is more enjoyable
TWE Essays 193292 193 Essay ID 223 Topic 128 Though physical recreations and intellectual activities are two basic ways in which people spend their leisure time In my opinion the former is more important for my generation who is in twenties and is studying hard for their academic achievements This is based on a consideration of age our main occupation and the characteristics of two forms of recreation People of my age are full of energy and physically active but we have to sit for hours a day racking our brains We need a complement that can give us more physical exercises and divert our attention from studying A intellectual activity like reading a book playing a chess game can help us escape from the worries and forget our study for a moment But there is no physical activity whats more they are more or less still a form of mental recreation For instance we may feel mentally tired after games of chess and our study will be affected In contrast a physical recreation can provide us with a lot of physical activities and real mental relaxation A ballgame for example can build up muscles flex joints speed up blood circulation and enhance bodily organs We may feel physically exhausted but we can be absorbed in study more easily In the view of above however it doesnt mean that one form is quotmeatquot and the other is quotpoisonquot Occasionally when we are physically exhausted and we are in good mood a chess game or a good TV program can be very helpful Essay ID 343 This is a 5 point essay Topic 128 While physical exercise is important I do not believe that it is the schools responsibility to provide physical training for its students That is something that everyone can take care of on his or her own Many students get plenty of physical exercise as part of their daily life or recreation A student who bicycles ten miles to and from school does not need more exercise A good physical education program must take a students outside activity into consideration Otherwise some students will spend valuable class hours repeating physical exercise If a school offers such activities it also suggests that students will be graded on them The range of possible physical activities is great football swimming weight lifting ballet ballroom dance yoga skiing horseback riding and golf are just a few However the number that a school could offer is small Some students could get bad grades in physical education simply because the school could not provide an activity they enjoy or do well This seems unfair Research suggests that participation not excellence in these activities determines the physical benefits the body will get Another issue is economic Many schools do not have the money to provide gym facilities playing fields and athletic equipment for their students Other schools are located in cities where that kind of space just isnt available A few schools would rather keep money for academic purposes Schools can certainly encourage physical activity They can provide space for notices about activities events and classes for physical activities They can encourage students to plan time away from academic studies to get some exercise However I think that providing exercise should not be the schools responsibility
TWE Essays 194292 194 Essay ID 224 Topic 129 The importance of agricultural and business research centers cannot be underestimated Success in farming and success in business each can improve a countrys standing I think that agricultural research tends to improve the quality of individual citizens lives whereas successful business practices improve a countrys economy in relation to other nations Choosing between an agricultural and a business research center is a difficult decision However I believe that the agricultural research center would be most beneficial because its benefits are more widespread Business practices in the United States already serve as a model for many other countries While we certainly have much to learn the US already has a fairly solid economic basis Further businesses are already well-connected internationally They have the advantage of the Internet and other means of electronic information transmission I think that a business research center would really only help a few directly Businessmen would get richer For the rest of the countrys people there might be little obvious benefit On the other hand an agricultural research center would help all people No country can survive without adequate means of food production While the US is able to produce or import enough food now that may not remain the case if current trends continue Natural resources are eroding and more and more American farms are closing Farmers need to build stronger networks across the country and internationally much as businessmen already have done Ultimately better systems for farming will help all people For example food prices can be reduced as farmers discover more effective means of food production Morally I believe that it is best to do what will benefit the most people I believe that the universitys decision to build an agricultural research center could do just that Essay ID 225 Topic 129 Since the announcement of the Universitys plan to develop a new research center in our country many people have showed their concern for the project and expressed their views of type of center it should be It is now clear that the diversified views have converged to two a business research center or an agriculture research center Now that we have to make a decision I think we should choosse the latter wothout hesitation As everybody knows our country is an agricultural country whose farming produce is not enough to feed its own people We have no way out but to develop our agriculture because agriculture is the foundation of our national economy and because it would be a disaster to the whole world if we rely on foreign food to feed the biggest population in the world To develop our agriculture we cannot just call on the peasants to work harder because they have being working the hardest from generation to generation What we should do is to raise their educational level and provide them with beter seeds more fertilizers advanced machinery and equipment and up-to-date technical advises In short we have to rely on science and technology to develop our agriculture Some people would say that this cannot be a convincing reason because science and technology are neded not only in agriculture but also in all other fields My view is that our situation in
TWE Essays 195292 195 agriculture is the most serious and the challenges are the greatest Ours is a big country with widely different climates and soil conditions If we are to assist the peasants we have to study all types of crops and all the farming conditions in this land With a research center these problems can be studied and solved systematically But so far no agriculture research center worthy of the name has been set up while there is already a business center in the southern part of the country Because of the above reasons I strongly recommend that we develop a research center for agriculture purpose and I also strongly recommend this center be well funded If wee take this step and succeed in this endeavour our agricultural produce will be greatly increased and our whole national economy will ahve a solid foundation Essay ID 444 Topic 130 Currently some young children spend a great amount of their time in practicing sports Most parents feel quite happy because sports are good for their kids development and team work spirit however they are quite worried about some negative effects such as practicing sports occupies too much time distracts their attentions on schoolwork and loses certain interests on other activities In my opinion everything has its good side and bad side The important thing is to handle it properly Admittedly practicing sports can help childrens physical development which makes them grow faster and stronger than before As we know during childrens development periods especially from 10 to 16 years old sports are really helpful for children to develop Sports can create a strong body that reduces the possibility of contracting some diseases easily Definitely we believe that children benefit from sports Another good thing is that sports teach us to learn how to corporate with other members in a team Most sports are team work If we want to play them well we must master some skills to care about what our team members are thinking and how to adapt each other to achieve a common goal Sports are not an individual activity it needs corporation and mutual understanding This is not easy to master Of course for parents they are delightful to see their children to get this skill from sports On the other hand practicing sports seem to occupy too much of childrens spare time to concentrate their schoolwork As a student ones major task is to study hard and try to learn as much as possible which needs students to devote much time on study or their spare time If children devote themselves in practicing sports it is not denying that they cannot concentrate them on schoolwork at the same time The consequence of practicing sports too much leads children to distract themselves which influences their future Actually besides sports there are still many kinds of activities such as drawing collecting good for their developments If a child is too concentrated on sports it is inevitable that he will lack of chances to explore other activities and lose some happiness when engaged in different experiences Overall on one hand we should encourage our children to participate in sports activities on the other hand we must also remind them not to be too engaged because they should put study at the first place during their school time There is a limit of doing everything Essay ID 381
TWE Essays 196292 196 Topic 130 Most kids love to play sports Its important to them but for the majority its just one type of activity out of many that they do For a small number of kids though a sport becomes their whole life They spend almost all their time and energy practicing This has both advantages and disadvantages Sports are good for young children in many ways Kids who enjoy sports are likely to have better health They develop good habits of daily exercise that will keep them healthy as adults too Today many children and adults are overweight but those who love sports stay in shape Plus by developing their physical abilities they will learn how to work hard towards a goal Their achievements in sports will make them feel good about themselves Theyll also make friends and learn teamwork Sports whether a little or a lot can have positive effects We admire the talent and dedication of young athletes but we also wonder if theyre losing something Their focus is very narrow If they devote most of their time to sports are they neglecting schoolwork What about other interests Children should try out many different activities In addition many young athletes are pressured by parents or coaches to succeed Kids whose drive comes from inside usually do okay but others can be unhappy and have health and emotional problems So sports like anything else in excess can have negative effects too When I was young I liked books and hated sports I saw other people who loved sports and hated school Now that Im older Ive found a better balance People have to figure out whats right for them Is there such a thing as too much sports There is no right answer because there is no quotright amountquot Everyone is different Essay ID 226 Topic 131 Is it true that only people who earn a lot of money are successful Recently the controversy has been brought into focus We cannot deny the fact that money is one of the yardsticks against which how much one has achieved is measured However in stark contrast many people would rather stick to an opposite view The rhetoric that only when people have earned a colossal sum of money can they be regarded successful is not only unreasonable unconvincing or misleading but also absurd and ridiculous in that it has obviously neglected the celebrated scientists sociologist psychologists philosophers and anthropologists who may have never had enough money to live a comfortable and convenient life yet they are virtually successful For instance Albert Einstein The greatest physicist of the 20th century who created the theory of relativity and was awarded the Nobel Prize was immune to becoming wealthy Besides not all wealthy people are successful A good case in point is that in West China some farmers cut down millions of trees each year and sell the timber at a high price As a result environment has been devastated Innocent people have to suffer floods and air pollutions Although the farmers are rich they are never successful but guilty Last but not the least besides money there exists a diverse array of other calibrations to measure ones achievement The society awards its members in different ways As long as one makes contributions to the society he or she would earn respects

TWE Essays 198292 198 attorney was Finally I think one of the most important indicators of success is knowledge Wealthy people dont know all the answers For example in the movie Good Will Hunting the only person who could solve some complex problems was the janitor He knew a lot and decided what he wanted to do with that knowledge rather than just think about money In my opinion he was extremely successful When we think of history there are few people that we remember simply because they were rich Overall we remember people who did something with their lives-they were influential in politics or contributed to science or art or religion If history is the ultimate judge of success then money surely isnt everything Essay ID 5 Topic 131 Since peoples criteria for success differ there is much debate over whether only those who make a lot of money are successful As far as I am concerned in todays society which stresses on individual achievement money provides the best evaluation of ones accomplishment To begin with as a standardized measurement used for comparing values money is objective rather than subjective so it is considered an authentic reflection of ones achievement As different people hold different understandings of success assessing the amount of ones earnings has become universally accepted as a rule to measure ones success Each year Fortune Magazine publishes a special issue to rank the top 100 most successful people throughout the world according to their yearly income because there is no other methods to rely on In addition the amount of money one makes is the consequence of ones hard work and talent To deny the accomplishment wealth brings is equal to deny the sources from which it springs In the past I only believed in spiritual values and then leapt rashly to the conclusion that the best thing in life involves no money at all It is my uncle who showed me the significance of money and changed my opinion He told me he respected money and made it a goal to strive for in his way towards success Because he would have to pay a price for it in terms of time thought and energy Gradually I came to realize it is the mental and physical labor he devotes in the process of making money that paves his way for self-accomplishment and thus deserves appreciation and respect Finally money is the most powerful possession in ones lifetime As everyone knows success is the ability to do whatever one wants to and to be satisfied with oneself There is hardly anything that can be done without a certain amount of money Indeed with money one can meet his or her material demand in life such as taking effective medicines living in magnificent houses eating various delicious food and so on Also with money one can do a lot of meaningful things to benefit others such as donations to poor people All these will not only satisfy ones need for personal fulfillment but also add grandness to ones success In conclusion money serves as a measurement of ones achievement But we should keep in mind that only those who obtain money by hardworking and use it to benefit the society are really successful Essay ID 2 Topic 132

TWE Essays 205292 205 Essay ID 278 This is a 5 point essay Topic 137 I think high school students should be allowed to choose some of the subjects they study However the basic subjects like mathematics literature and science should be mandatory for all students When I was in high school we were allowed to choose three electives each semester Electives were subjects that werent part of the bask curriculum They included things like music journalism art and various kinds of team sports Choosing some of these subjects to study gave me a chance to experiment I was able to get a head start on what I was going to study in college However college preparation shouldnt be the main factor I think all students should be allowed to take a certain number of courses just because theyre interested in them For many students high school is the last chance to learn about things theyre interested in Maybe once they have a job there wont be time for studying Of course its also important that students study certain basic subjects If Id had a choice I know I wouldnt have studied mathematics or science I wasnt very interested in them However once I was in class I found myself getting interested I wouldnt have known this if Id been given the choice because I would have chosen not to take the courses High school students arent always the best judges of what theyll find useful in the years ahead They need the guidance of experts in the field of education However they also need some freedom to follow their curiosity and individual interests They should be given the freedom to choose some courses while being required to take others Essay ID 11 Topic 138 Maybe in someones opinion to be a member of a group would not have to shoulder some responsiblities deal with a variety of persons and spend a wealth of time in its daily affairs while the leader have to butwhen taking the benefical factors into consideration compared with the so-called negative aspects mentioned above we can safely say that it is better to a leader of a group than to be a member of a group Of course a leader of a group is intrinsically a member of the group so in this sense the leader should answer for the duties a common member should do and also can enjoy the relating rights a common a member can do Beside as a leader of the group he or she should be responsible for many other duties like the management and the development of the group and maybe someone takes these obligations as a burden but for me I think it is an opportunity to fullplay a leaders talents and potentiality and thus to win the respect as well as trust of the members of the group and from this standpoint no more benefical and challenging is than to be a leader of a group Then as a leader of a group he or she will be endowed with more chance to deal with shades of peoples and thus can learn how to get along with them well and also can win a pool of friends who maybe of specail importance for his or her future As a matter of fact there are a good numbers of reasons to support my view but I think the ones

TWE Essays 223292 223 In the wilderness animals are also much harder to track and monitor Zoos make research less time-consuming and expensive Long term follow-ups are easier too since even with monitors wild animals often are killed or disappear In zoos researchers can observe an animals entire life span Overall I feel that properly managed zoos provide excellent opportunities for education and research and are therefore very useful Essay ID 29 Topic 153 Children like to go to the zoo on holidays They find it interesting to watch monkeys or bears doing funny things But how many adults go to the zoo not for childrens sake I think few Because we finally find that a zoo has no really useful purpose and its not a truly fun place for us When a person breaks the law he will be thrown into prison But the animals in the zoo have done nothing to deserve being locked in a small cage No plants no water just brick walls and floors Every animal is in the same environment and can do no other things except for wandering around in the little space Do you think thats what an animal should look like And after visiting such a living place of animals as a zoo no one would ever be left a nice impression of beauty and harmony of the nature that the zoo tries to demonstrate In addition going to the zoo is not a good chance for educating children Childrn see animals being tamed and locked just for people to watch and have fun with That will give the wrong impression to them that animals are ought to be like that In such an artificial circumstance they dont realize that animals and people are friends and they are just as important in the ecological system as we are The last but not the least animals in the zoo are often treated badly by the visitors People like to feed them with whatever they bring with them hamburgers popcorns or even paper Animals are not able to distinguish which food is bad for them and thus they eat too much unfitable food It is very harmful to their health So I dont see any useful purpose to build up a zoo in a city just for peoples entertainment but to sacrifice the animals health and freedom And it does no good to teach our children to have animals as our best friends Essay ID 482 This is a 5 point essay Topic 153 Every city has one or more zoos There is no denying the fact that whether a zoo is useful or not is a popular topic which has caused heated debate over a long period of time Some people think that establishing a zoo of course has its advantages while others think it makes no sense And for a while people think that a zoo is no useful purpose As far as I am concerned I disagree with this opinion There are no less than three reasons to disagree with the opinion as rendered below One chief reason which can be seen by every person is that children can obtain direct knowledge about a variety of animals They can see what tigers like hear various sounds of birds and differ one animal from another If there is no such a place how can they make direct impression of animals They may never have a chance to see various animals even though they learn many from
TWE Essays 224292 224 book A further reason why I disagree the statement is that most of us live in cities and have many things to do We must work for living and learn for obtaining a better job Everyday we live with a rapid pace and we want to relax A zoo of course is a good place for us to have a relaxation There are so many lovely animals and so beautiful environment in which we can learn more things about animals as well as relax ourselves Finally to be frank there is also a more personal reason why I think a zoo is useful When I was a little girl I liked animals very much especially birds But I could not feed them for myself so the zoo which was located near my home was the place I went to most frequent And I really love these places Based on what has been discussed above I may safely arrive at the conclusion that a zoo has its useful purpose Essay ID 497 Topic 154 Not allowing smoking in public places and office buildings is a very good rule I believe this for several reasons Not only will banning smoking improve peoples health it will also increase worker productivity and reduce conflicts We all know smoking is not healthy Unfortunately when smokers are able to smoke in public buildings they can make other people sick They may work with people who are allergic to smoking for example In that case the non-smokers have no choice unless they want to quit their jobs They can only get sicker which is unfair Of course banning smoking in public buildings and offices will please non-smokers It will also improve the smokers health They will have fewer opportunities to smoke so they will smoke fewer cigarettes Banning smoking in office buildings can also increase worker productivity Smokers wont interrupt their work all the time to smoke There will also be fewer worker absences When smokers cut down the number of cigarettes they will get fewer smoking-related illnesses Finally it is a good idea to ban smoking in public places and office buildings because a ban can reduce conflicts Non-smokers tend to get annoyed and jealous because smokers have an excuse to take frequent breaks The most significant conflict however is over whether smokers have a right to smoke in public As we have already seen non-smokers feel they are not always given a choice If smoking in public is allowed they will be forced to breathe harmful air This may violate their rights and nonsmokers are angry with smokers because of it It seems clear that banning smoking in public places and office buildings is a good idea It will reduce conflict and increase productivity It will also benefit the health of smokers and nonsmokers alike I believe that just about anything that improves our health is a good idea Essay ID 30 Topic 155 Plants can be considered the support of the life on Earth due to their main feature they are continuously providing oxygen because of photosynthesis process Moreover most plants are useful to people in many other different ways

TWE Essays 236292 236 Some athletes and entertainers earn millions of dollars annually In contrast an elementary school teacher on average probably makes less than 35000 a year I think the fact that this difference is commonplace is a sign of our societys misplaced values It shows that we put more importance on entertaining our children than on educating them It seems that the careers that are the least valued in our society often are those that are the most important Why is this so The market determines who gets paid what Teachers are paid by tax dollars Sports teams make hundreds of millions of dollars every year These teams earn fabulous profits from radio and television rights as well as everything sold at the concessions stands The same is true of movies They are produced by studios that make huge profits annually These enterprises can afford to pay their entertainers and sports figures huge salaries because those athletes and film stars draw people to the entertainment Why are we willing to pay so much to see a ball game or a movie but not for a good teacher Maybe its because we want distraction we want to be entertained Maybe its because we think of education as a right while entertainment seems like a luxury We expect to pay for our luxuries Its not that I begrudge the players and entertainers their huge salaries Most of them have very short careers Athletes may be too old in their early 30s Many of them gamble early in their lives on making it big in the sports or entertainment world and deny themselves a good education They have little chance of a stable career so they need to earn enough money to support them for a long time On the other hand most of us arent going to earn 10 million in a lifetime of work So its hard to sympathize with people who do We have to ask ourselves who really gives the most value to society Essay ID 39 Topic 163 While some countries have strong programs against illiteracy others still do not care that much But illiteracy has become a big obstacle during the last century and is still problematic question now with quick development of technology and automation From my everyday experience and observation I can state several factors which defend the statement that reading and writing now is more important than ever before First of all it is essential for a person to have at least basic knowledge of reading and writing to survive in our society While in the past some people could live in wilderness or even in cities without any knowledge of written language now it is almost impossible The way of living has change so much that it is impossible to be a part of nation especially in developed countries without ability to read and write your bills to understand your mortgage documents or job applications Moreover you can go nowhere by yourself but in your own small town without reading the maps and signs on the roads and in cities Second nowadays most of jobs require reading and writing as necessary skills and tendency that these skills will be more and more important for future jobs increases In fact because of sharp development of technology more of jobs on the labor market are for literate people and less of them are for people without any or slight reading or writing knowledge For example there are not needed so much people who can work on lands or select parts in auto-factories because the machines do that kinds of jobs now On the other hand factories and corporations need people who can read the instructions and control the machines It is bare true that without jobs that need only physical abilities illiterate people are forced to be constantly on unemployment lists

TWE Essays 254292 254 Finally by walking people can slow down the pace of their lives Perhaps this is one of the greatest benefits of walking more Life at the beginning of the new millennium is stressful--people are competing with each other for better jobs countries and companies are competing with each other for business Many people start to forget about the importance of slowing down in their lives of simply enjoying the moment People need to contemplate life more Walking is a perfect opportunity to slow down think about life and simply enjoy the big beautiful world that we live in Finally we could celebrate this holiday by encouraging people to walk instead of driving or taking the bus for at least one trip during the day I believe that people could find at least one trip during the day that they could make on foot instead of some other form of transportation For example if people usually drive to a large supermarket to buy food perhaps they could walk to a closer smaller market to buy only a few things I believe that while people were walking they would be able to enjoy the exercise and the fresh air and would be able to think calmly and clearly In short if I had to create a new holiday I would create quotWalking Dayquot because of the many simple benefits it could provide us Essay ID 57 Sample essay provided by Erin Billy of wwwTestMagiccom Topic 176 October 24 is Union Nations Day The day is noted in the calendars but not observed as a holiday around the world I want the entire world to celebrate the birth of the United Nations because of its attempts to promote peace education and health around the world Peace is the most important thing that we can have today The sooner that we can stop war the sooner we can all have better lives There are countries around the world that have been at war for generations In some of these countries UN Peacekeepers have temporarily stopped the violence so people can go about their lives If this peace could be made lasting the lives of these citizens would be much richer The UN actively works to promote education Universal literacy is one of its important goals Every child in the world deserves to know how to read and write The UN is also involved in job training for adults The age of information technology demands new job skills-The UN works with continuing education programs around the world so workers are not left out of the job market done in these areas Much of the work of the UN is unknown and underappreciated If we want to live in a peaceful world where every child can attend school and where every citizen has access to health care we need to support the work of the UN We need to recognize its importance and celebrate its birthday Essay ID 58 Topic 177 Between going on vacation and buying a car I would like my friend to buy a car Below is why
TWE Essays 255292 255 The first and most important reason is that a car can bring him convenience Undoubtedly nowadays people rely on cars for transportation more than ever before For example when he drives a car to go shopping he may feel more convenient and can pick up more groceries than before because he can put groceries in the car trunk instead of carrying them by hands Furthermore when he wants to pick somebody up or travel to a scenic spot a car will make him feel convenient Another great reason why I encourage my friend to buy a car is that my friend will not spend much time on commuting anymore Everyday we waste too much time on waiting for a bus or riding a bicycle to work We all experienced the frustration of taking a bus After having their own cars such the problems will disappear automatically Of course if my friend decides to use his money to go on a vacation I think that there are some advantages also For example a vacation may increase his personal experience and knowledge and may even reduce many troubles that are related to a car But if all the factors are contemplated I think that the advantages of buying the car will carry more weight than those of going on vacation From what has been discussed above I may safely draw the conclusion that buying a car will be correct choice for my friend Essay ID 59 Topic 177 Trying to decide how to use your money is always tough Should you use your money to buy a car or go on a vacation Both afford lasting pleasure but of a very different kind From a vacation you get the pleasure of doing wonderful things and of totally relaxing and enjoying yourself The memories you bring home with you can give you that same pleasure again every time you think of them A car also gives you pleasure every time you drive it Theres the pleasure of not having to depend on public transportation You can go places off the beaten track where public transportation doesnt go There is also the pleasure of being independent You are able to go anywhere your car can take you without depending on others A vacation gives you the opportunity to learn new things and meet new and interesting people However its only for a short period of time A car gives you the same opportunities on a smaller level but on a more regular basis With a car you can go someplace new every weekend You can also join a car pool That way you can share travel expenses with the new people you meet Some people might say that spending your money on a vacation instead of on a car is being impractical But nothing is as satisfying as a really good vacation Its mentally and physically healthy It gives you a chance to get away from all that is familiar to you and see the world from a new perspective It lets you do nothing but play the way you did when you were a child Being able to play even for a short period of time is absolutely necessary for everyones mental health I would choose the vacation because we all deserve to indulge ourselves sometimes Essay ID 60 Topic 178
TWE Essays 256292 256 Now that we are in a new millennium we can assume there will be changes in the world I predict that the changes will be in the areas of information dissemination global alliances and family structure In the past decades the computer was responsible for changing the way information was organized Now the computer plus the Internet is changing the way information is spread Information will now be universally available to anyone with a computer You will not have to go to libraries to do research you will not have to travel to visit scholars you will not have to go to a bookstore to buy a book You can do all of this from your home on the computer In the past decades the nations of the world aligned themselves with the United States the former Soviet Union or with one another in a loose alliance In the future these alliances will be more fluid Some countries will align politically with one country but economically with another Some countries will share technology and other information but will not trade together Some countries which have long been enemies will align militarily for regional security The family structure will not be based on a motherfatherchild pattern Single parent families will be more common and often the child will not be a biological child of the single parent but will be adopted Other family structures like domestic partnerships will become more accepted Whatever the changes may be whether in the way we receive information the way nations align with one another or the way family units are defined you can be sure that there will be more change Change is a constant Essay ID 61 Topic 179 Different parents have different methods to teach their own children When faced with the decision of what some of the qualities of a good parent are each person has his own opinion From my point of view I consider that consideration encouragement communication and care are the qualities of a good parent There are numerous reasons why I hold the above opinion and I would explore only a few of the important ones here The primary reason why I persist in the above opinion is that these qualities help parents and children to understand each other For example consideration is a key to good relationships between parents and their children When parents stand at childrens point of view it is easier for them to understand why children is behaving like that and what they are thinking This is will give parents a full understanding and they will be able to find a suitable method to teach his children what to do correctly and how to do on such a thing By such consideration and communication children of course can accept their parents advice Meanwhile they can eliminate the so-called quotgeneration gapquot and the relationship between parents and their children is getting along very well Another factor which should deserve some words is that these qualities can promote children to make progress For instance encouragement is an effective way for a parent to teach his children When a child fails to do something because of his limited knowledge and experience if his parent can encourage the child to do it again and help the child analyze the reason why what he has done is wrong Then the child can learn more knowledge and will try it again and he will succeed in doing such a thing finally What is more these qualities help children grow up healthily When parents take care of their children children can feel familys care and can stay at home very happy This is very useful for

TWE Essays 265292 265 with friends has its advantages in my point of view I would like to study alone The reasons are as follows When you study especially when you study some subjects which are hard to understand such as maths and physics you need to concentrate on them That requires a quiet environment without distractions Studying alone can provide that you can read your books and think of questions without being disturbed It will help you to understand the knowledge better and to remember the knowledge better Furthermore studying alone has another advantage that studying with friends does not have That is it forces you to think When you face some questions hard to solve and there is no other students around you you have to think of the questions hard and try you best to solve them This gives you an opportunity to improve your ability to deal with problems by yourself Obviously studying with friends cannot give you these Because when you meet some questions you probably turn to friends for help The third advantage of studying alone is also the most important reason It can make you think independently and have your own opinions You have to think independently when you study alone No one can give you interference or suggestions You will not be affected by other peoples opinions That can help you create your own thoughts not to become a parrot After all the best parrots still live in cages Though studying with friends has some advantages for instance it can help you to solve your questions faster and improve your friendship however I think the advantages of studying alone overweight these of studying with friends My preference would be to study alone Essay ID 395 Topic 184 Do you like to sit alone in a quiet place pondering on the solutions in your study Or you would favor discussing the subjects with several friends The question of the condition of study which plays an important role in the process and outcome of study is often met with diverse answers Some people choose to study alone enjoying peaceful surrounding without disturb others however would rather join a group of people sharing different ideas with them As far as I am concerned I prefer the latter for the following argument To begin with there is no denial that studying alone helps better concentration on the problems consistency in the trail of thought and establishment of the ability to handle problems by oneself But what if it comes to confront the difficulties one cannot break through single-handed To consult with several people may be greatly conducive Studying with a group of people will offer you a chance to exchange opinions with others and often can discussion help you out of your predicament or at least achieve enlightenment which lead to what you are in search for Writer or designer for example seldom works out wonder or classic alone with door closed On the contrary their resources accrue from communication with other people learning feeling and progressing Secondly studying in group can help build teamwork consciousness which is much needed in todays competition world To study means not only the improvement of knowledge but also the development of mental quality Both can benefit from group study Presentations in university are often required to be performed by a group of students With a common goal to practice and rehearse students usually attach great enthusiasm and spare no effort to achieve for self and
