1. Describe a change in your school that was initially considered by students as having negative effects on their life but later proved to be positive?
Well the change I would like to talk about is the 40-hour volunteer work requirement initiated last year in my school. At first, we were reluctant to follow this policy, coz we were so busy, always bombarded with various examinations, papers,presentations, club activities etc; we thought this change would only overburden our already tight schedule; however, one year later, everyone feels grateful to it, which not only helps us to enlarge our social circle and broaden our horizon, but gives us a great sense of achievement after doing those volunteer work, like teaching kids English, and helping senior citizens to clean rooms etc.
2. Some people think that libraries will disappear with the development of technology and Internet. Others think libraries are always necessary. Which opinion do you support and explain why.
I believe that libraries will gradually disappear. As a student, I could not remember when was the last time I went to a library to look for information needed for my work.
More and more students now use Internet for information at home or at school; many of us even have our own laptop. It is so convenient to search for information online with search engines like google and yahoo, and with online virtual libraries, which contains resources from all over the world. Besides, students are so busy nowadays.
Thus, going to a library for information is just too slow for the fast-paced modern society
