一、DAY 18 题目解析：
1. Did you save money when you were young?
Yes, of course. As a kid, I’d like to collect lots of pocket money in order to buy my favorite toys, game players. Most of the time, I couldn’t wait for the day to come when the money is enough to buy those things. I spent it buying snacks instead.
2. Should parents give pocket money to their kids?
It depends. Some children don’t have the ability of self-control. They would probably use the money to buy computer games which contain a large amount of violence, or evenbuy cigarettes or drugs. If proper instructions were given, giving pocket moneyis a good thing.
3. Do you think parents should teach children to save money?
Absolutely, even though there exists some potential hazard of giving pocket money, it is important for kids to have the sense of self management and the ability of doing preparation for the future.
Describe a sport you watched and would like to try
You should say:
What sport it is
How you got to know it
Whether it is difficult to do
And explain why you would like to try it
这道题虽然有个“a sport you watched”前缀，但实质就是“你想做的运动”，无非在开头简单说一下什么时候在哪里看到过这个运动。对于喜欢运动的同学们，如果没有想做但还没做过的运动，其实挑一个你做过的说成没做过就行。不喜欢运动的同学只能挑一个你比较感兴趣，或者还比较好说的展开就行。（滑冰、冰球、冰壶、赛马、跳伞、潜水等等）
Last year, I went to a famous hotel to attend one of my friend’s wedding ceremony. I arrived there hours in advance so my friends invited me to do some leisure activities. What I had not expected was that he wanted me to take a shot in playing golf. That’s a sport I had just watched on television. Golf is a popular sport all over the world and I never played it. That was the first time for me to grab the club and hit the ball.
After that, I was interested in playing the sport. Golf has a reputation across the globe as the sport of rich people and also requires patience. Actually, golf requires a lot of patience and perseverance and the sense of perfect timing is also an important issue to play golf. Besides, it’s not as expensive as before.
For playing golf,one does not need a lot of preparations. But some specific things should be there before starting the sport. Firstly you should have your own club, and accordingly, I have bought three nice clubs to use during the tournament and for my regular practice, I have got two clubs of standard size and quality. I have also bought two dozens of balls for practice and six pieces for the tournament. I would like to play it as I do not have any previous experience. Moreover, the golf courses are decorated beautifully with greeneries,attractive spots and delicious foods. Besides, the air in the golf field isfresh due to the natural environment. Thereby, I want to take golf as one of my outdoor activities.
Describe a useful skill you learnt in a math class in school
You should say
What the skill was
When you had the class
Who taught you the skill
And explain why you think it was useful
Back in the days of high school, I was just about 15 years old in Grade 10. I had been always one of the best students from elementary school to middle school. So I was pretty much confident that I wouldn’t have to make efforts to study mathematics. Even more, I thought sometimes I could ditch some of the math lessons to play sports. Out of my expectation, the math course was totally different from those in previous nine years of schooling. It requires too much time of preparation,or you couldn’t understand those strange concepts at all.
One day, I was confused with an equation on the textbooks and I also couldn’t understand what my teacher’s explanation. It was really puzzling to most of us students at that time. All of a sudden, one of my classmates stood up, saying that it would beeasier to use Calculus to do the equation. Then he was invited to introduce the rules and principles of Calculus to us on the blackboard, showing how a high school math class could be related to a college math course. Almost all of us thought his instruction was far better than our teacher’s. It was amazing oreven unbelievable that he studied Advanced Mathematics by himself. From then on, such kind of equation would not be a problem to me. I thoroughly understood it and got relatively high marks in college entrance examination. I was so grateful that I met such a talent in high school.
