(2012-4) Part I. Have a discussion or debate on one of the following topics: 1. Youth is the golden age of a person’s life; it comes once in a lifetime. What do you think you s
hould do while you ’re young? What does youth mean to you? 2. The artificial egg made of plants is set to take on the world. To keep up with all the demands for the growing global population, we need to be more efficient, more environmentally friendly, and have more quality and affordable choices, so the artificial eggs come into our life. Would you like to try an artificial egg which causes strong debate? Some people believe that technology has made our lives easier; others think technology is destroying our natural life. Please state your standpoint with persuasive examples. 3. Our two-year English class is coming to an end. Is it a blessing to you? Could you tell what you have harvested from the two-year English class? Could you recall the most unforgettable experience? 4. Spanish children may soon be required to help out with housework under a draft law that has been approved by parliament. The measure, which would be part of a wider child protection law, says that children under the age of 18 have an obligation to participate in all areas of family life. That includes "co-responsibility in caring for the home and
performing household tasks regardless of age and gender". Are you in favor of this Spanish law? Why or why not? How did your parents nurture you? Would you adopt your parents’ way to raise your kids in the future? 5. A ban on eating and drinking on the Beijing subway was removed from the railway's safety regulations. According to the previous ban, subway passengers were fined up to 500 yuan ($80) if they were found eating or drinking during their commute. What’s the case in Wuhan? Is it ok for people to eat or drink on public transportations? Give your reasons. 6. Some people think plastic is the greatest invention; others regard it as the worst invention. What do you think is the greatest or worst invention in human history? Why would you say so?
