1. Where is your hometown?
A: I’m local Cantonese. My hometown is an international metropolitan with modern buildings and natural sceneries. The landmark in my hometown is definitely the Canton Tower, an artistic television tower and a perfect spot for dating.
2. Do you think your hometown is suitable for old people or children to live?
A: I do think so. Firstly, old people and children need a place with good environment and fresh air. Secondly, a well-developed public transportation system is very important for these people since they’re less likely to drive. My hometown is a perfect place for them.
3. How has your hometown changed in recent years?
A: Well, my hometown has changed quite a lot these years. More skyscrapers have been built and more subway lines appeared. In addition, more people from other cities come here for study and work.
4. What do you think should be improved in your hometown?
A: I love my hometown deeply, but it does not mean that it is a perfect place. I think the air pollution in my hometown is quite serious, partly due to the increasing number of private cars. I strongly hope the government can fix this problem as soon as possible since I don’t want to wear a mask in the future if I have to go out.
1. When was the first time you had a mobile phone?
A: I had my first phone when I was in primary school. It was a blue Nokia phone given by my dad as a birthday gift. At that time I felt so excited to have a phone and often used it to text my friends and play games.
2. Do you prefer to send text messages or to make phone calls?
A: I prefer texting. Firstly, it is easy to leave important messages for people to look back. Secondly, it is cheaper comparing with making phone calls. If I call someone, he might be in a meeting and cannot answer my phone in time. That’s why I like texting.
3. What do you use your phone for?
A: I use my phone to take photos, especially selfies, most of the time. I also use it for the Internet and chat with my friends.
4. Do you think texting is a good way to convey important information?
A: I think texting can be a useful way, but not the only way, to convey important information. As for me, I will choose to call that person if I have something important to say, since calling is a formal way to do so. After the call, I will also leave a text message to remind him about the important details.
1. Have you ever forgotten something important?
A: I can remember most of the things, but I did forget something important once. I remembered last year I forgot about Father’s Day and made my dad really upset. Luckily, I took him to dinner a few days later and he forgave me at last.
2. What do you remember to do every day?
A: I remember to take a shower, to have three meals and to drink enough water every day. For more important things about studies and work, I need to mark them down to remind myself.
3. What helps people to remember things?
A: A notebook can do. Once something important is written down, people are more likely to remember it. In addition, we can also use the reminder APP on our phone to mark down birthdays and anniversaries.
4. Why do old people forget things easily?
A: I think it has something to do with their age. Once people getting old, they might suffer from certain kind of memory lost and their reaction will be slower than before. For example, my grandma often needs my dad to remind her to take the medicine.
Describe a place near water (such as a river, a lake or the ocean) that you enjoyed visiting
Describe a friend you know who is a good leader
Describe a team project you were involved in
Good leader算是2015年1月份的新题，现在继续沿用。Team project自从五月份开始就比较常考了。其实可以把两者结合起来。一个我认识的好领导，其实可以说是学校团队当中的领头人。重点必须描述什么样的才算是good leader？他必须具备什么品质，比如说responsibility责任心，patience耐心，decision-making ability决策能力，teamwork spirit团队精神等等。最后可以说说你是否喜欢这个朋友，他有没有值得你学习的地方，接下来我们看看答题示范。
Well, if you want me to say something about a friend that I think is a good leader, Lily is definitely the right person to talk about.
She was my middle school classmate. We met each other on the first school day and soon became friends.
She was average height and quite slim, with tan skin and long curly brown hair.
I remember there was once we had an English class. Our teacher gave us a group project about comparing English and another foreign language.
I was in the same group with Lily, and three other classmates. Lily volunteered to be our group leader and so we began the project.
Firstly, we had to choose a language for comparison. Two classmates wanted to choose Japanese, one wanted Thai, another one had no idea and I prefer to choose French. Since we had different opinions, Lily asked each of us to write down our reasons for further discussion.
Later on, we came to a common ground that we should choose French, since it was more similar to English and easy for us to make comparison.
Next, Lily assigned a task to each of us. She knew that I had some information searching experience so she suggested me to search for some linguistic journals online. Two classmates were quite out-going so Lily sent them to interview the French exchange students in our school.
After we all finished our tasks, Lily and the other group member were responsible of writing the final report and making the presentation.
All our group members, including me, regarded Lily as a very good leader. She was extremely patient and responsible. What’s more, if a member had any difficulties, she would cheer him up and help him finish the task together. We all learned a lot from her teamwork spirit. I really hope that in the future I can become a good leader like her.
