In accordance to the definition in Oxford Dictionary, creation refers to the act or process of making something that is new, or of causing something to exist that did not exist before.In fact, today it is impossibly difficult for us to image a 21st century without creation .
We should place a high value on creationfirstly because creativespirit can enable an individual to ameliorate himself, so he can be equipped with capacity to see what others cannot see, be qualified for future career promotion, and be ready for meeting the forthcoming challenges. What’s more, we ought to attach importance to the role played by creationin economic advancement. Put it another way, in this ever-changing world, creationto economic growth is what water is to fish. To sum up, if creationmisses our attention in any possible way, we will suffer a great loss beyond imagination.
In order to encourage creation, it is wise for us to take some feasible measures. For example, mass media should greatly publicize the significance of creativity and encourage the public to cultivate awareness of creation. Besides, those who manage to create should be awarded generous prize. Though there is a long way ahead to go, I am firmly certain that the shared efforts will be paid off.
For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay based on the picture below. You should start your essay with a brief account of An American girl in traditional Chinese costume and then explain the importance of cultural exchanges. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words。
The picture vividly depicts a lovely American girl in traditional Chinese costume with a sweet smile on her face. She wears ribbons, necklaces and other accessories that are characteristic of the clothes of a certain Chinese minority group。
The fact that people from different countries are attracted to mysterious Chinese culture indicates that to some extent a culture can be accepted, respected, appreciated and shared internationally. In other words, a nation‟s unique/distinctive culture can become international through worldwide economic and cultural exchanges. Since the trend of globalization becomes irresistible, the increasing cultural exchanges can effectively improve mutual understanding and friendship。
It is my view that national culture as priceless spiritual treasure should be preserved and cherished. Meanwhile, there are good reasons to advocate international culture for those ideas from the other cultures, controversial or even absurd at first sight, can provide a different
perspective for us to observe the world in the long run. Nevertheless, when we are confronted with a different culture, we should be sensible enough to absorb its essence and to resist its dark side。
In recent years, more and more college students quit school ahead of schedule.Except the minority quitting for objective reasons like health problem,most students leave with the pursuit of an ideal career, as well as more experience and fortune.Several factors may contribute to its emergence.
In the first place, some students think that the opportunity cost of spending four years on college campus is too high,and the job market competition is getting fiercer.
Therefore, when there’s a satisfying job available, it’s worth quitting.In the second place, some hold that the real world is a better school for them to get practical knowledge than traditional schools.
Last but not least, the publicizing and popularity of some successful businessmen like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs,who didn’t finish school but ended up with a great fortune and achievement,
set examples for the young generation emphasizing individuality and personality.
However, I don’t think it’s rational for college students to quit school.Armed with high education and more mature personality, better-prepared graduates can fight for their future more easily.
In a word, college education pays off.
