    Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic Will Fast Food soon Take the Place of Chinese Traditional Food. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below:

    1. 洋快餐在中国日趋流行,很多人对此感到十分忧虑。如:传统饮食习惯很快会被人们忘记等。

    2. 然而,我对洋快餐持肯定的态度。

    3. 我认为那些人的忧虑没有必要。

    Will fast food soon take the place of Chinese traditional food? Fast food, such as hamburger and fried chicken, becomes more and more popular with young people in modern China. But this trend has aroused some anxiety that the traditional cuisine will be forgotten one day if people get used to living on a diet of fast food.

    Besides, some people think fast food can do harm to people’s health because this type of food fails to provide adequate daily requirements of all nutrition. Although the popularity may cause some health problems, my attitude towards fast food is positive. The reasons are just as follows. For one thing, it is difficult to resist the temptation of fast food of McDonald’s or Kentucky because they can provide the customers with a kind of completely new and tempting food as well as excellent service. For another, in an age when some busy people would not like to waste too much time in cooking, eating fast food is a good choice to help them make full use of time.

    As for the worry that the negative effects on Chinese traditional diet caused by fast food, in my opinion, the national cuisine will not die out because fast food and traditional food do not go contrary to each other and they can serve different tastes. In one sense, fast food is a product of an ever-changing lifestyle. We should be brave to accept this change instead of saying no to it.

    Directions:For this part,you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic Problem of Piracy. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below:





    Problem of Piracy

    Nowadays, the problem of piracy has become more and more serious. Books, tapes, VCDs and other high-tech products have been pirated. For instance, when a new product comes onto market, most probably, its pirated counterpart will soon put on its appearance in the market, too.

    Piracy has caused a great loss to legitimate producers, inventors and writers in many ways. To start with, the pirated products often cost much less than the genuine ones so that they enjoy a better trading position in spite of their relatively poor quality. The genuine products, on the contrary, sell poorly. What’s worse, pirated books, sometimes, do great harm to the authors reputation due to some misprints. In the long run, pirated products may have a negative impact on customers because those legitimate producers’ creativity and enthusiasm may be deeply hurt by the fact that some customers are more interested in the pirated products for the sake of small gains.

    In my opinion, it’s high time that everyone started the battle against piracy. First, customers should develop their consciousness to resist the pirated products. Besides, the government should take effective measures to put an end to piracy. Finally laws must be strictly enforced to completely ban piracy. Only in this way, can we wipe the pirated products out of our life.

    Directions: For this part, you ate allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic Keeping a Pet. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below:




    Keeping a Pet

    Nowadays it is common to see people keep a dog or cat or a pet of another kind all over the world.

    There are many advantages of keeping a pet. For one thing,pets are good companions. This is especially important for people who live alone and for the old who do not go out much. Some pets can also help to protect the house from thieves. For another, dogs and cats like to play and can give hours of amusement to children and adults. Taking care of an animal also helps children to develop a sense of responsibility and to learn about the nature.

    However, keeping a pet, just like anything else, has its negative side as well. It may also give rise to some problems. For example, some pets are dirty and tend to transmit some sort of disease. Worst of all, some dogs may attack and seriously injure small children for the reason that their owners don’t train them properly or actually encourage them to be aggressive.

    To sum up, there are more advantages than disadvantages to keeping a pet, especially for lonely people and children. Meanwhile, it is, however, quite necessary to bear in mind that pets should be well trained lest they attack people.

    Directions: For this part, you ate allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic Where Where Is a Will, There Is a Way. You should write at least 120 words,and base your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below:





    Where There Is a Will, There Is a Way

    There is an old saying that “Where there is a will, there is a way”, which means as long as a person possess a strong will he will certainly accomplish a task no matter how difficult it is. In other words, one of the most important things to achieve success is a firm resolution. This is the case in all walks of life.

    For example, Karl Marx spent five years on his greatest work Das Kapital. Cao Xueqin spent ten years on his world famous book Dreams of Red Chamber. Without a strong will and firm determination they couldn’t have fulfilled such brilliant works.

    However, some people don’t have the fearless spirit. Whenever they meet difficulty they draw back from it. As a result, they never accomplish anything.

    Therefore, if we wish to succeed, we must first have a resolution and remember the saying “Where there is a will, there is a way”.

    Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic How People pent Their Holiday. You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the chart and the out line given below:





    How People Spent Their Holidays

    As can be seen from the tablem, the past decades have witnessed dramatic changes in the way people spent their holiday between 1990 and 2000. In 1990, 63% of people spent their holidays at home while the figure dropped considerably to 24% in 2000. It is obvious from the table that people tended to be more and more mobile, and they wanted to get entertainment in the outside world.

    What contributed to these changes? I think the reasons are as follows. To start with, with the rapid development of economy, people earn by far more money than they used to. Thus, people are able to afford traveling expenses. Secondly, people think it important to get well-informed about the outside world in this new era when everything is on the move. Traveling, of course, is a sure way to achieve this goal. What’s more, in this competitive society, people are usually under great stress. However, it is not difficult to find traveling an effective way to relieve people’s stress and get relaxation. Last but not least, by traveling outside, people are close to nature, which is not only beneficial to both their health and peace of mind.

    In conclusion, people prefer to go traveling rather than stay at home during holidays for a combination of reasons. Moreover, it seems that this trend will last in the foreseeable future.

    A Letter to Paul

    July 7, 2002

    Dear Paul,

    Thank you for your letter of July 3, in which you asked me for my advice concerning whether you should study history or computer science at university. I am rather glad to make some useful suggestions.

    First all of all, you should bear in mind that, above all, your university training is a preparation for your future career. Therefore, your first consideration should be to study a subject which will best equip you to earn a living. There is no doubt that the field of computers offers far wider job opportunities than history.

    Furthermore, we are now in the age of the high-technology revolution. For the foreseeable future, not only will it be necessary for everyone to be computer-literate, it will also be necessary. for them to be armed with computer skills merely to earn a living! History, I am afraid, however fascinating it might be, offers few career prospects.

    Of course, you don’ t have to dedicate all your time at university to studying computers and nothing else. On the contrary, I would recommend that you keep on your reading of history in your leisure time. Therefore, you will find that your leisure hours are enriched while you prepare yourself for a worthwhile career in computers.

    Wish you every success.

    Yours sincerely,
