My View on NEET
注：NEET是Not Currently Engaged in Education，Employment or Training或Not in Education，Employment or Trainin9的缩略语，即我们所说的“啃老族”。
My View on NEET
Now in China the problem of NEET has been brought into public attention.NEET refers to the group of people who are not currently engaged in education，employment or training，instead they just stay at home，relying on their parents.
There are mainly two reasons for this phenomenon.For one thing， since the expansion of university enrollment in l999，an increasing number of college graduates have poured into the job—hunting market.However， some of them are not fully prepared and become unemployed.For another， some young people are the only child of their family and badly spoilt.As a result，they are psychologically dependent even when they grow up.
To solve this problem，first.colleges or the communities should provide pre-job training courses for the young.Second，parents should cultivate their children's sense of independence in their childhood.Last but not least，college students also have to equip themselves with skills and knowledge and get ready to compete tomorrow.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition on the topic: What does friendship mean? You should write at least 120 words and you shouldbase your composition on the outline (given in Chinese) below:
What does friendship mean?
There is no definite answer. An eternal theme in literature, friendship is also indispensable in daily life.
Friendship is to our life what salt is to dishes. When you are happy, friendship is just like adding flowers on the brocade; when you are sad, friendship is a dose of consolation; if you are in trouble, friends will surround you and remove the barriers for you; if you have a hard nut to crack, you can turn to friends for help. We admire the great friendship between Marx and Engel, which firmly combined them and pushed them forward on the road to exploring and fulfilling Communism.
Friendship isnt almighty, but no one can live happily without it.
On Overseas Study
With the deepening of reform and opening-up of our country, many people dream of going abroad for further study. They insist that the modern research facilities, world famous professors and excellent environment in those foreign co11eges and universities can help lay a perfect foundation for their future development.
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying “Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.” You can give one example or two to illustrate your point of view. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
Would you want a doctor to operate on you who has only learned about operations from a textbook? The answer to this is obviously a resounding “No!” Knowledge gained from books must always be complemented by knowledge gained from actual experience, to be of real value.
For me actually practicing a particular action or experiment myself and experiencing the result, leaves a much deeper and lasting impression than what I get from simply reading or listening. If I read about how to write an essay or listened to someone talk about writing an essay, I still wouldn’t feel that I knew how to write an essay until I wrote one for myself. It is the case, however, that writing the essay would be based on the methods I learned intellectually. The same can be said for other skills, like sports, for example. A person can know all the rules of a game, associated skills and strategies, but until that person gets on a court with a ball in motion, the theory remains flat, useless.
To sum up, as to theoretical knowledge and practical skills, the latter is certainly more important. Just as British churchman Thomas Fuller put it, “Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.”
Dear Mr. President,
This letter comes to you from one of your students.In it, some opinions are put forward for you to reflect upon.
As you know, our students are the main customers of the university canteen. But unfortunately, we dont find the service there satisfying sometimes.The food is not as nutritious as it should be. As a result, some of us become thinner and weaker at university.Besides, sometimes the canteen people just bring us steamed bread with their dirty bare hands.And whats more, the fare is also a little higher at university.
Some people may argue that measures have been taken and things are improving there.For instance, Ic cards have taken the place of money in the canteed, and the attitude of the service people is also changing.But in my opinon, progress is not so quick and thorough.
To be belief, though a bit dissatisfied with the present canteen conditions,I do believe that, with the efforts of all people concerned, we can solved the problems there.

According to the investigation of the income sources of students, the income of American and Chinese students comes from parents, part-time job and scholarship, However, the percentage of each income is quite different, Fifty percent of the American students income comes from their parents, fifteen percent comes from the scholarships granted by colleges and universities and the rest comes from part-time jobs. Ninety percent of Chinese students income comes from their parents.
In my opinion, the main reasons for the difference is that American students are taught to be independent when they are very young, while Chinese students are taken such good care of that it is very difficult for them to live on their own. Whats more, Chinese students have fewer opportunities to find part-time jobs.
Nowadays more and more Chinese students are seeking part-time jobs. For one thing, some students come from poor areast and their parents cant afford the high cost of education. For another, theyre eager to acquire some social skills and earn some money which will help them do more in school and live independently, AS far as American students are concerned, I think the sources of American students income will remain the same.
You can find many blind-date shows on many channels on weekend evenings these days. People not only watch such program but also discuss the beautiful girls, handsome men and the activities in the shows.
Several reasons result in the popularity of these shows. First of all, love is no longer extremely private and people, especially young people, are not as shy as their parents when it comes to love. Many prefer showing their love in front of people, even millions of people. Secondly, nowadays working young peoples social network is so narrow that they have to extend their targets on these shows. Not only do they have more choices on the show, but also they advertise themselves to the audience.
In my opinion, we can only treat such programs as mere amusement because I do not quite believe that true love can be created through such as short time. This show may be a place where people get to know each other and listen to advice from guests and hosts, but it is never where two people truly become lovers at the end of the show.
Generally the tendencies of three countries keep up though there are some differences among them. The Japanese old people aged 65 and over account for 5% in 1940 which is the lowest proportion in three countries. The situation will remain till about 20xx. After that its proportion has a suddenly rise and exceed the other countries’ proportion. Till 20xx, it will reach it peak of 27%.
The USA old people’s proportion is a little more than the Sweden’s. However this trend was reversed in 1999. After this year, the proportion of Sweden has a sharp rise till 20xx while the USA ‘s proportion remain a steady at the same time. From Joozone.com.
In summary, before 20xx the proportions of aged people of three countries were remained under 15%. But after 20xx, these proportions will exceed 20%.
Being online is no longer something strange in our life. To some degree, it has become part of our daily life. We can do a lot of things online, such as searching for information and communicating with friends far and near. But recently another helpful online activity has become very “in”. That is online education.
Why could online education be so popular within such a short period of time? Among other reasons, the quick development of the internet should be an essential one, which makes all our dreams of attending class in the distance possible. Another underlying reason is the quick development of both society and technology. Today ,modern science and technology is developing with lightening speed. To catch up with this development we all feel an urgent and strong desire to study. However , due to the great pace of modern society , many people are too busy to study full time at school. Online education just comes to their aid.
Personally , I appreciate this new form of education. It’s indeed a helpful complement to the traditional educational means. It can provide different learners with more flexible and versatile ways of learning. Most of all ,with online education, we can sick to our jobs and at the same time study and absorb the latest knowledge.
