Topic 1:假如时光能倒流,你最希望回到什么时候,最希望到什么地方去?

Topic : If you could go back to some time and place in the past, when and where would you go? Why? Use specific reasons and details to support your choice.

If I were afforded the opportunity to go back to a specific time and place in the past, I would venture back to ancient Greece. During the 5th

century B.C., the Greeks were in the process of developing and reforming a wide range of cultural, social, and scientific pursuits which still have a significant impact on the world today.

In the arts, Greece excelled in many fields, particularly dramatic literature. The works of Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes have had a

tremendous influence not only on western literature, but also on western thought in general. The works of these playwrights are still performed on stages around the world today. However, it would be a rare and exciting opportunity to see these plays performed for the first time.

The ancient Greeks also excelled in the social sciences. Perhaps their greatest contribution in this area came in the form of democracy. The Greek words "Demo" and "Cracy" mean "People" and "Rule"

respectively. Today, many of the world's great nations have adopted, and

to a certain extent, modified the ancient Greek system. Yet, its birth and early maturation period all took place in ancient Greece.

Academic subjects such as Philosophy, Astronomy, Physics and Biology also received a great deal of attention in the ancient Greek world. The philosophical writings of Heraclitus, Plato, and Aristotle have had a profound influence on western scholarship for over two thousand years. The Mathematical theories of Pythagoras and Euclid, combined with theories from other great ancient civilizations, provided a foundation

upon which later mathematicians such as Newton and Einstein based their work.

The world of the Ancient Greeks would most certainly be an exciting and stimulating place to go back to. Politics, Drama, Physics, and a number of other subjects were still in their infancy, and all were being fiercely debated and examined. It would undoubtedly be an enriching experience to observe and take part in such a fascinating civilization.

Topic2:你愿意送一个什么礼物给小孩来帮助他成长?

Topic: A gift (such as a camera, a soccer ball, or an animal) can contribute to a child's development. What gift would you give to help a child develop? Why? Use reasons and specific examples to support your choice.

Sample 1 To enhance children's development, some parents select a fairy tale book as a gift; others choose a stuffed doll; still others pick a basketball up. Although every item has its value, personally I find a stereo advantageous for a child's growth to learn languages, music, and communication. First, children can gain knowledge through language cassettes. For

example, while listening to tapes of beginner English, children follow the directions to speak out simple words such as "A" means "Apple", "B" refers to "Bird" and " C" defines " Cat". With a "Rewind" button, children can repeat this basic vocabulary as many times as they want. Under these circumstances, repeated stimulation enables them to memorize words quickly. So, a stereo can benefit children to study languages effectively. Another contribution of a stereo for children's development is that

children can learn the rhythm, melody and lyrics. Like "Elephants", the famous song tells kids why an elephant has a long trunk. Also, according to various rhythms, children can express feelings in different ways. To illustrate, romantic music like Celine Dion's " My heart with go on" has smooth and slow pace. It makes the listener tranquil. However, pop music like Michel Jackson's "Thriller" thrills children. So, music inspires children's minds.

Most importantly, a stereo allows children to communicate with hosts of broadcasts. For example, they can turn into talk show on 99.1 FM. There is a program called "Take a guess" at 9:00a.m. on weekdays. Usually, the host asks questions like "what is the largest animal in the world?" Every child can respond through a phone. If someone gets the wrong answers, the host would provide more hints and clues to children until they get the right answers. In this way, children can improve their imagination and creativity; in addition, they learn how to communicate with others. All in all, little kids can feel frustrated playing tapes and CD's. Also, impatient children cannot stick with hours long or more cassettes. Nevertheless, I strongly think a stereo is worthwhile for children's

development because it helps them become gifted in language, music and speech.

Sample 2

When I was about 10 years old, my older sister gave me a present. It was my first real grown-up bicycle: a three-speed, yellow and black, shiny and new one. I still remember how excited I was. That bicycle was very important to me over the next few years. If I wanted to give a gift that would contribute to a child's development, I would choose a bicycle.

Bikes are great exercise. They encourage outdoor play. Television and video games, which are the most popular children's activities nowadays, involve mostly sitting and staring. Riding a bike makes exercise fun. Bikes are convenient transportation, too. Without a bike you have to depend on an adult to drive you almost everywhere. With a bike you can go farther. You can ride to your friends' houses. If your school is close enough, you can take yourself to school. You have control over where you go, and you're not always waiting or begging for a ride. Now you can say "Can I go…?" instead of "Please take me!"

To me as a child, a bicycle meant independence. Not only could I go farther, but no one was watching where I went. The road went past the park, the pond, the woods, the 7-11 store, and more. I saw the network of little neighborhood roads from a different viewpoint. Everything was much more interesting up close than it was through a car window. I could stop anywhere and look at whatever I wanted. Everything was my choice. Bike riding was active, not passive.
