It is unwise to judge a person by their appearance

There is an old saying that people never judge a book from its cover. From my point of view, this saying also applies to our attitudes towards others: never judge a person from their appearance. Because you never know one person’s true merits if only judging from their appearance.

It is true that an attractive appearance is of great significance not only for daily life but also for the job. However, it is unwise to judge one person by the appearance for the following reasons. On the one hand, with the advancement of science technology and medical level, people can transform their surface by all means. On the other hand, the appearance should not be the merely criteria 标准,条件for judging an individual, considering that are more important factors, including courteous ['kɜːtjəs] 有礼貌的;谦恭的 kind-hearted, honest and so on.

In conclusion, it is inadvisable to judge a person by their appearance. That’s why I assert that we should pay more attention to one's inward and place high value on inner cultivation修养.


These days there is a general discussion about the issue of judging a person by their appearance. People’s opinions differ greatly concerning this phenomenon. Is it wise to judge a person by their appearance? It is definitely not.

There are numerous reasons explaining this phenomenon. First and foremost, although good appearance is helpful to leave others a good impression in the first meeting, kindness and inner thought are the most important to make friends for all life time. Secondly, many facts reflect that some people with charming appearance make no successful events, while others without handsome appearance achieve a lot. Last but not the least, with the development of science and technology, plastic surgery can change ones appearance, so maybe the people with sourness only alter their appearance but not develop their virtue.

Admittedly, it is unwise to judge a person by their appearance. So people should have more communication with others to find the beauty of their inner thought.

From my point of view, this saying also applies to our attitudes towards others: never judge a person from their appearance. Because you never know one person’s true merits if only judging from their appearance.

In conclusion, it is unadvisable to judge a person by their appearance. That’s why I assert that we should pay more attention to one's inward and place high value on inner cultivation.


As old people always put it, "Never judge a book by its cover." However, in most cases, we judge a person just by external appearances. For example, sometimes when we walk down the street at night, we choose to avoid people who are acting tough and loud.

In this way we tend to make wrong decisions, because judging someone by appearance can be deceptive.

In dairy life, we try to stay away from people who are called the "bad guy" because they dress a certain way. But we may miss an opportunity to make a good friend, because judgments based on external appearances prevent us from getting to really know a person. If we take the time to get to know the person, we might become friends.

Therefore, in my opinion, judging people just by appearance is superficial and often unfair. After all, we don't know what circumstances the person might be facing or who the person really is. Please embrace everyone you meet and not judge him just by appearances.


There is a Chinese saying goes like this: men cannot be judged by their looks. I cannot agree with this point of view any more.

On the one hand, though a charming appearance will leave a good impression on others, one’s look can seldom reflects his or her qualities, capacities and ethics. We cannot say those who are

good-looking are more capable and more cultivated than those who are average-looking or ugly-looking. There are so many people who do not have good appearances have made great achievements for the progress of mankind, such as Stephen William Hawking who are even crippled. On the other hand, our appearances are decided by our genes, which are inborn, while our qualities can be cultivated as we grow. We can enrich our minds by learning, but which cannot be reflected on the appearances.

To summarize, judging people by appearance is unwise. Therefore I suggest that we should focus on one’s inner world rather than their appearance.


In recent years, there has been a widely-held feeling towards evaluating a person on the basis of his/her appearance. On the surface, it may seem a sound idea, but on closer analysis we find it unscientific and unconvincing. There are numerous reasons for this argument, but I shall here explore only one of the most important ones.

We can never judge a person by his/her external appearance because no one is able to gain a full appreciation of a person merely by it.

One’s good impression on others does not usually develop from the way one looks, but the inner qualities one possesses. For example, the virtues of the Chinese people are regarded as beautiful, because they have helped to produce such a magnificent culture in the world.

From what have been discussed ablve, we may draw the conclusion that we should adopt appropriate standards to estimate persons, like their inner qualities or practical actions.



1. W: The students have been protesting against the increased tuition.

M: Yeah, I heard about the protest. But I don't know how much good it will do.

Q: What does the man mean?

2. W: Jay will turn 21 this week. Does he know the classes are having a surprised party for him?

M: No, he thinks we are giving a party for the retiring dean. Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

3. M: Hello, this is Carl's garage. We found Mr. White's briefcase and wallet after he left his car here this morning.

W: He has been wondering where he could have left them. I'll tell him to pick them up this afternoon. Thank you for calling. Q: What do we learn about Mr. White from the conversation?

4. W: You know, some TV channels have been rerunning a lot of comedies from the 1960s'. What do you think of those old shows? M: Not much. But the new ones including those done by famous directors are not so entertaining either.

Q: What does the man mean?

5. M: How much longer should I boil these vegetables? The recipe says about 10 minutes in total.

W: They look pretty done to me. I doubt you should cook them anymore.

Q: What does the woman mean?

6. W: Tom, are you going to your parents' house tonight?

M: Yes, I promise to help them figure out their tax returns. The tax code is really confusing to them.

Q: What is the man going to do for his parents?

7. W: I was surprised when I heard you'd finished your research project a whole month early.

M: How I manage to do it's still a mystery to me.

Q: What does the man mean?

8. W: I was hoping we could be in the same developmental

psychology class.

M: Me too, but by the time I went for registration the course was closed.

Q: What does the man mean?

Conversation one

M: It's really amazing how many colors there are in these Thai silks?

W: These are our new designs.

M: 9 Oh, I don't think I've seen this combination of colors before.

W: They're really brilliant, aren't they?

M: Quite dazzling! 9 May I have samples of the new color combinations?

W: Yes, of course. But aren't you going to place an order?

M: We order them regularly, you know, but I do want our buyer who handles fabrics to see them.

W: Have you looked at the wood and stone coverings? Did you like them?

M: Oh, they aren't really what I'm looking for.

W: What do you have in mind?

M: That's the trouble. I never know exactly until I see it. I usually have more luck when I get away from the tourist places.

W: Out in the countryside you mean.

M: Yeah, exactly. Markets seem small towns have turned out best for me.

W: 10 You're more interested than in handcrafts that haven't been commercialized.

M: Yes, real folk arts, pots, dishes, basket ware – 10 the kinds of things that people themselves use.

W: I'm sure 11 we can arrange a trip out into the country for you.

M: I was hoping you'd say that.

W: We can drive out of Bangkok and stop whenever you see something that interests you.

M: That would be wonderful! How soon could we leave?

W: 11 I can't get away tomorrow. But I think I can get a car for the day after.

M: And would we have to come back the same day?

W: 11 No, I think I'll be able to keep the car for three or four days.

M: Wonderful! That'll give me time for a real look around.

Questions 9 to 11 are based on the conversation you have just heard.

9. What attracts the man to the Thai silks?

10. What is the man looking for in Thailand?

11. What do we learn about the trip the woman promised to arrange for the man?

Conversation Two W: Well, before we decide we're going to live in Enderby, we really ought to have a look at the schools. 12 We want the children to have a good secondary education, so we'd better see what's available. M: They gave me some information at the district office and I took notes. It appears there are five secondary schools in Enderby -- three state schools and two private.

W: I don't know if we want private schools, do we?

M: I don't think so, but we'll look at them anyway. There're Saint Mary's, that's a catholic school for girls and Carlton Abbey, that's a very old boys' boarding school, founded in 1672.

W: Are all the state schools co-educational?

M: Yes, it seems so. W: 13 I think little Keith is very good with his hands. We're to send him to a school with good vocational training -- carpentry, electronics, that's sort of thing.

M: In that case, we are best off at Enderby Comprehensive. I gather they have excellent workshops and instructors. But it says here the Donwell also has good facilities. Enderby High has a little, but they

are mostly academic. No vocational training at all at Carlton Abbey or Saint Mary's.

W: What are the schools like academically? How many children go on to university every year?

M: Well, Enderby High is very good. 14 And Carlton Abbey even better, 70% percent of their pupils go on to university. Donwell isn't so good. Only 8%. And Enderby Comprehensive in Saint Mary's not much more, about 10%. W: Well, it seems like there is a broad selection of schools.15 But we have to find out more than statistics before we can decide.

Questions 12 to 15 are based on the conversation you have just heard.

12. What do they want their children to have?

13. What do the speakers say about little Keith?

14. What school has the highest percentage of pupils who go on to university?

15. What are the speakers going to do next?

Section B

Directions: In this section, you will hear 3 short passages. At the end of each passage, you will hear some questions. Both the passages and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear

a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C) and D). Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a single line through the centre.

Passage One

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! As instructed in our previous meeting, the subcommittee on building development has now drawn up a brief to submit to the firm's architect. In short, the building would consist of two floors. There would be a storage area in the basement to be used by the research center as well as by other departments. 16 We are, as you know, short of storage base, so the availability of a large basement would be a considerable advantage. The ground floor would be occupied by laboratories. Altogether there would be six labs. In addition, there would be six offices for the technicians, plus a general secretarial office and reception area. 17 The first floor would be occupied by the offices of Research and Development staff. There would be a suite of offices for the Research and Development director as well as a general office for secretarial staff. It's proposed to have a staff room with a small kitchen. This would serve both floors. There would also be a library for research documents and reference material. In addition, there would be a resource room in which audio visual equipment and other equipment of that sort could be stored. Finally, there would be

a seminar room with closed circuit television. This room could also be used to present displays and demonstrations to visitors to the center. 18 The building would be of brick construction so it's to conform to the general style of construction on the site. There would be a pitched roof. Wall and ceiling spaces would be insulated to conform to new building regulations.

Questions 16 to 18 are based on the passage you've just heard.

16. What is said about the planned basement of the new building?

17. Where would be the Research and Development director's office?

18. Why would the building be of brick construction? Passage Two

19 Huang Yi works for a company that sells financial software to small and medium size businesses. His job is to show customers how to use the new software. He spends two weeks with each client, demonstrating the features and functions of the software. The first few months in the job were difficult. He often left the client feeling that even after two weeks he hadn't been able to show the employees everything they needed to know. It's not that they weren't interested; they obviously appreciated his instruction and showed a desire to learn. 20 Huang couldn't figure it out the software was difficult for

them to understand, or if he was not doing a good job of teaching.

During the next few months, Huang started to see some patterns. He would get to a new client site and spend the first week going over the software with the employees. He usually did this in ships, with different groups of employees listening to him lecture. 21 Then he would spend the next week in installing the program and helping individuals trouble-shoot.

Huang realized that during the week of trouble shooting and answering questions, he ended up addressing the same issues over and over. He was annoyed because most of the individuals with whom he worked seem to have retained very little information from the first week. They asked very basic questions and often needed prompting from beginning to end. 22 At first, he wondered if these people were just a little slow, but then he began to get the distinct feeling that part of the problem might be his style presenting information.

Questions 19 to 22 are based on the passage you've just heard.

19. What does Huang Yi do in his company?

20. What did Huang Yi think of his work?

21. What did Huang Yi do in addition to lecturing?

22. What did Huang Yi realize in the end?

Passage Three

As we help children get out into the world to do their learning well, we can get more of the world into the schools. Aside from their parents, 23 most children never have any close contact with any adults except their teachers. No wonder they have no idea what adult life or work is like. We need to bring more people who are not full-time teachers into the schools. In New York City, 24 under the teachers' and writers' collaborative, real writers come into the schools, read their work, and talk to the children about the problems of their craft. The children love it. In another school, a practicing attorney comes in every month and talks to several classes about the law. Not the law it is in books, but the law as he sees it and encounters it in his cases. And the children listen with intense interest. Here's something even easier: let children work together, help each other, learn from each other and each other's mistakes. 25 We now know from this experience of many schools that children are often the best teachers of other children. What's more important, we know that when the fifth floor six-grader who is being having trouble with reading, starts helping a first-grader, his own reading sharply improves. A number of schools are beginning to use what some call paired learning. This means that you let children form partnerships with other children. Do their work even including their tests together and share whatever marks or results this work gets.

Just like grown-ups in the real world. It seems to work.

Questions 23 to 25 are based on the passage you've just heard.

23. Why does the speaker say most children have no idea what adult life is like?

24. What is happening in New York City schools?

25. What does the experience of many schools show?

Tests may be the most unpopular part of academic life. Students hate them because they produce fear and (26 anxiety) about being evaluated, and focus on grades instead of learning for learning's sake. But tests are also valuable. A well-constructed test (27 identifies) what you know and what you still need to learn. Tests help you see how your performance (28 compares to ) that of others. And knowing that you'll be tested on (29 a body of ) material is certainly likely to 30 (motivate )you to learn the material more thoroughly. However, there's another reason you might dislike tests. You may assume that tests have the power to (31 define ) your worth as a person. If you do badly on a test, you may be tempted to believe that you received some (32 fundamental ) information about yourself from the professor --- information that says you are a failure in some significant way. This is a dangerous and wrong-headed assumption. If you do badly on a test, it doesn't mean you are a bad person or stupid or that you'll never do better again

and that your life is (33 ruined). If you don't do well on a test, you're the same person you were before you took the test. No better, no worse. You just did badly on a test. That's it! (34 In short), tests are not a measure of your value as an individual. They're a measure only of how well and how much you studied. Tests are tools. They're indirect and (35 imperfect) measures of what we know.



土豪和大妈可能会被收入新版的牛津(OXford)英语词典,至今约有120中文加进了牛津英语词典,成了英语语言的一部分。 The Chinese heated words usually reflect social changes and culture, some of which are increasingly popular with foreign media. Tuhao and dama, for example, are both old words, but they get different meanings now.

The word tuhao used to mean rural landlords who oppress their tenants and servants, while now it refers to people spending money without limits or those showing off all around. That is to say, tuhao owns money rather than taste. The word dama is used to describe middle-aged women. However, it is regarded as a special word to call those Chinese women who rushed to purchase gold when the gold price decreased sharply not long ago.

Tuhao and dama may be included in the new Oxford dictionary. Up to now, about 120 Chinese words have been added to it, becoming a part of English language.
