1.

Students often like to study with others in a group. What do you

think are the benefits of group study? Explain your reasons.

There are several benefits. First of all, in a group, if you have any problems, you can always find group members to help. Since everyone has different strong subject, if you have trouble with math, you can find a member to help you, if you have difficulty with physics, you can also find another member to help you. Secondly, studying in a group offers chances for discussion. People view things differently. In discussions, you can learn different perspectives. And this can help broaden your horizon.

2.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Children

should receive money for doing household tasks such as cleaning. Use specific examples and details to support your opinion.

I agree with this statement. If children do household tasks, they can receive money. With the incentive, they will probably do the tasks more actively. This can help children develop some basic living skills. They’ll learn how to do the laundry, how to wash dishes, how to clean up the room or even how to cook. More importantly, this can help children understand a lesson: no pains, no gains. Parents can stop giving children

allowance unconditionally. Rather children should earn their allowances through their own labor. Children may even develop a sense of economy.

3.

The man expresses his opinion about the proposal described in the

letter. Briefly summarize the proposal then state his opinion about the proposal and explain the reasons he gives for holding that opinion.

The writer of the letter proposes that the university should run a free bus service between the campus and the airport during break times, because there is currently no public transportation in the line. Also, the university can use the regular buses on campus to do this service. The man in the conversation thinks this is a great idea. Firstly, he says that right now, it’ s very expensive to get to the airport, since students always have to take taxi if they don’t have friends to give them a ride. It usually costs about 30 or 40 dollars. This is a big money for students. Also, he says that at the break times, there are fewer students on campus. So not many students need the bus service on campus. They don’t go to library as often.

4.

Explain how the example from the professor’s lecture illustrates the

choice-supportive bias.

Choice-supportive bias is a phenomenon that after making a choice, people tend to remember the advantages only and forget the disadvantages of the choice. The professor uses his own life experience to illustrate this. Years ago, his friend and he went to see a house. The house had a perfect location. It was near his friend’ s working place. But it was a little small. His friend wanted a bigger house. Still his friend bought the house. After a few years, when the professor and his friend talked about the decision of buying this house, his friend said it was very comfortable living in this house, coz it’s close to the working place. But his friend kind of forgot that house was small and thought the house was big enough.

5.

Briefly summarize the problem the speakers are discussing. Then

state which of the two solutions from the conversation you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.

The woman is stressed out because she has to finish 3 research papers before the end of the semester and she also has to work in an office. Her problem is that there is not enough time. There are two possible solutions. The first is that she can reduce the working hours in the office. The second is that she can get an extension on history paper. But few points

will be taken. If I were the girl, I would choose the second solution. Working in an office is not just a part-time job; it may also become an opportunity after graduation. Since the history professor has already granted extension, she can take it. I think losing a few points is nothing compared to a future career.

6.

Using the examples of starthistle and Kit fox, describe two ways

roads can affect the environment.

The professor talks about two ways roads harmfully affect the environment. The first way is by transporting plants to new areas. The transported plants will compete with native plants for natural resources. For example, there is a kind of weed, starthistle that gets transported by tires. In the new environment, it competes with native plants for water. This makes it harder for native plants to survive. The second way is by dividing the animal habits into smaller areas. Animals in smaller areas won’ t have enough food to support themselves. For example, Kit fox eats mice and squirrels. These small animals spread over large tracts of land. Now the fox’s habitat has been divided by high ways. It’s very hard for the fox to find enough food. So the number of the fox decreases.
