(一) My Favorite Pastime

Sample 1:

My favorite pastime is writing. You may not think it is a pastime. But to me it is, because it is a form of relaxation that takes my mind away from other things when I feel tired.

I began to like writing when I was a pupil in primary school. I was imaginative and created many interesting stories at that time. When I told my stories to my friends on our way home from school, they enjoyed them. Then telling a story I wrote on the way back home soon became my regular practice. That made me really happy. I had never thought of writing as entertainment before. Sometimes I wrote down my stories and passed them around among my classmates.

When I was in high school, I began to like poems. This was because of the influence of my best friend. She liked poems very much, so gradually I learned to appreciate poems. When I am writing poems, I can concentrate for a long time, totally losing myself. No matter whether I am happy or sad I start writing poems to express myself.

Let me tell you a little secret. Now I ’m writing a science fiction about time travel. I’m sure it is original and interesting. However, writing definitely takes time, and how I wish I could have more time to pursue this hobby. I may not become a professional writer, but I will always enjoy writing.

Sample 2:

I usually spend my leisure time on various things such as watching TV , reading, swimming and playing table tennis. But if you ask me what ’s my favorite pastime, I would definitely say that it is playing computer games.

I like computer games and surfing on the Internet. Many people believe playing computer games is harmful to one’s health, especially to the eyes. But I don’t quite agree. I think playing computer games benefits me. First, as a way of relaxation, it also gives me a sense of accomplishment. Secondly, I gain a lot of knowledge I cannot find in textbooks. For instance, when I played Civilization II, I began to realize the importance of science, because it was impossible to defeat the enemy in the game if you didn’t develop science. Finally and most importantly, I have to use an English-Chinese dictionary from time to time because most of the games are in English. So the more games I play, the greater progress I make in English. The games are entertaining and instructive.

I also like surfing on the Internet. There is a huge amount of information there. It has become more and more popular and important. It is said that those who control the Internet will conquer the world in the future. That is perhaps an illusion but I want to be a master of the future.

In a word, I like playing with my computer very much. It appeals to my curiosity and my desire to escape from the limited world of my room.

(二) On the Spring Festival Gala

In recent years, attitudes towards Spring Festival Gala have varied a lot. (提出一种社会现象) Some people take it for granted that it should be cancelled or replaced by other programs, while others such as the majority of mid-aged people and senior citizens uphold the importance of the traditional performance. (提出两种人对该社会现象的不同看法) As to me, I am in favor of the latter opinion.(做出自己的选择)提出观点段

Of course, the Spring Festival Gala, lasting about 4 hours, makes some people feel a little bit bored.(承认“我”所不赞同的观点有一定合理性) They hold this opinion because the forms of most programs are familiar to the audience and the programs lack originality.(进一步说明,支持前句的论点) But it is worth noting that most people still have a strong feeling about the Spring Festival Gala and no better programs can replace it at present.(转折指出“我”所不赞同的观点的不足) From my point of view, the Spring Festival Gala should be kept as most people wish.

performances always bring people a lot of laughter.(举例说明理由一) Second, the directors of the Spring Festival Gala are trying harder to adapt the programs to meet the obvious changes of the audience’s tastes.(阐述“我 ”的理由二) From the foregoing, the Spring Festival Gala is still an indispensable part of the New Year’s Eve.(总结全文,重申“我 ”的观点)正面论证段

(十一) On Excessive Packaging

(1)Wandering at the supermarkets, you can never fail to notice the phenomenon that the shelves are filled with fancy and excessively-packaged commodities with high prices, which is especially true when festivals are approaching. However, the problem of excessive packaging has aroused people ’s wide concern.

(2)There are a number of reasons responsible for this phenomenon. (3)For one thing, it benefits manufacturers a lot in terms of profits by raising the prices of those products which are beautifully packaged. (4)For another , chances are that

excessively-packaged goods may satisfy the vanity of those customers assuming that good package is always associated with high quality.
