What can parents do to help their children succeed in school? (看題目關鍵詞可以被分為學習類，也可從“人物類”/“物品類”角度答題)
這道題從很早很早的時候(07年8月份左右)就出現過了，大多出現并且題干內容重合，都是再問說“如果同學/朋友/…歲的孩子，想學好一門…, TA應該做什么? … … ”。
Reason 1： 一方面鍛煉身體，對于學習效率更高。然后展開: 如果缺乏運動，一天到晚學習.... 老枯燥了~ ~ ~ 運動一下應該可以讓孩子更加有活力，學習的時候也更容易Focus。
Reason 2：另一方面： 孩子通過做一些集體活動，也可以鍛煉到他的合作精神/領導力。 展開： 學業的成功，不應該僅僅用成績來衡量(Being succeed in school is not necessarily about being good at academic study). 因為學術知識還是有限的，如果孩子可以在學校里面健康、快樂地長大，發掘出(Develop)一些自己的興趣、愛好，那其實就是成功了 … 等等
Do you agree or disagree that students should join some social activities, such as joining clubs or sports groups?(是否同意學生應當參加一些社會活動? 如: 加入俱樂部或者運動組織? )
Reason 1：如第1題。(當然了，Please~ 不要傻傻地用一模一樣的答案來回答問題，變通一下，好不好？ 你把閱卷考官當傻子，你會有報應的。。。)

獨立寫作真題回顧：The internet access is as important as road building and so forth, d.o you think government should provide internet access to all citizens at no cost?
It takes little imagination to visualize that for those well-off regions, where people are not concerned so much about the basic needs of their life as about the satisfaction of their secondary needs, providing free internet access bodes well for the development of these places.
a treasure trove of information, essential propagator of knowledge, a remarkable avenue for the academically disadvantaged, vast reach over a variety of products and services
It takes even less imagination to think that for those poverty-stricken areas, where billions of poor people need a lot more energy to pull them out of poverty and drive economic development, improve life expectancies, and bolster human health, it is unjustifiable to opt for free internet connection.
文章主旨：在美國eastern coast政府建了high-speed rails,閱讀認為在 San Francisco 和Los Angeles之間建一個相似的system,會benefit as well.
1: 修路花費很高，如果人們都take the train instead，there will be less damage to the road.
2: rails 是the most popular way to travel，更多的人乘坐會relieve the congestion.
3：it is more environmentally friendly, 因為速度更快，就會更fuel efficient,減少污染排放。
1：修路確實會省一些錢，但是建這個鐵路需要花100 billion, 是人們一年交的tax的75倍，人們就付不起loan了。
2：如果這個station can be easily accessed，確實會有助于緩解交通擁擠，但是there is a lacking of the rail station, 而公共交通非常easily access, 所以不能緩解交通擁堵。
3：并沒有減少emission, 因為是高速列車，所以速度快才能保證排污少，一些tracks of some parts可以快，一些不可以，在不可以快速行駛的軌道上不得不減速，減速就會導致污染，所以會much less fuel efficient.
