第二段: 分析网络读书的原因. ( 或阐述不同的人的不同观点)在这一段，既可以把网络阅读的影响力归结为利大于弊，也可以归结为弊大于利，自圆其说即可。
Thepicture describes a conversation between two people, one of them said: “Ireadabout 3 hours a day. My favorite book is Facebook.” The picture intendstoinform us that the Internet has exerted an important influence on readingforthe modern citizens.
The phenomenon involvesmany factors, which canbe listed as the follows. Tobegin with, with the rapid development ofscientific technology, The Internethas become indispensable in our daily life.Undoubtedly, it provides people withmany advantages and makes our life morecomfortable and efficient, including theway of reading. What’s more, it is a moreadvanced way to get information neededby people, and an efficient way to searchfor materials. “I have hardly everbought any books since 2003. I have beenreading online in recent years.” saidprofessor Wang from Peking University.“With the click of the mouse, any storiesor information that I want at anygiven time or place, is there.” she said. Thismay well explain why so manypeople now prefer to embrace the wonders of theInternet than read print copiesof book or any other reading material.
Every coin hastwo sides, reading in social networking websites is no exception.Admittedly,there is false and useless information on the social networkingwebsites, itisadvisable that we read more critically and carefully.
For this part,you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay based on thepicture below. You should focus on the difficulty in acquiring usefulinformation in spite of advanced information technology. You are required towrite at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
The picture describes a conversation among several people, one of themcomplains: “we havelots of information technology; we just don’t have muchuseful information.” Itis safe to figure out that our lives are full ofinformation technology, but weare supposed to have the ability to distinguishthe useful ones from theuseless ones.
The human beings are stepping into theinformation society. The informationindustry develops very rapidly, so does theinformation technology. Informationtechnology brought us many benefits, as well as theunexpected side effects.First, when we search for information on the Internet,it comes out that theuseful information and useless ones appear together. Italways takes us longtime to separate them. What makes things worse is thatsome information on theInternet even misleads the people who cherish the hopeof acquiring the usefulknowledge from the Internet. Thus,information technology becomes an impendingimportant issue.
Through the above analysis on information technology,I believe that thepositive aspects far outweigh its negative ones though thetechnology does bringus some unwanted information. As college students, weshould enhance theawareness of recognizing the useful information when we are surfingthe net.
第二段: 误导性信息对我们的影响的阐述. (可以结合具体的例子.)
It canbe clearly seen that the coupleare discussing the information on theInternet, one of them said: “I just feelunfortunate to live in a world with somuch misleading information.” Theconversation of the cartoon picture conveysthe message that people attained informationfrom the Internet, some of whichmight be misleading.
Along with the development of societyand technology, an increasing number ofproblems are brought to our attention, one ofwhich is that misleadinginformation exists on the Internet. Here is an exampleI got from my friend,which works well in the case. She expected to discover acure from the Internetwhen her mother got a certain disease. Unfortunately,that so called “cure” fromthe Wechat moments did not work at all and hermother’s healthy condition gotworse. Such misleading information often wastepeople’s time and may result ineven severe consequences.
In view of the problem, effectivemeasures should be taken. For one thing, it ishigh time that we realized theimportance of ability to separate the usefulinformation from the misleadingones. Thus, critical thinking is of greatimportance. For another, thegovernment should issue strict laws and regulationsto put the situation undercontrol.
China is playing an increasingly important role in helping the internationalcommunity to eliminate extreme poverty by 2030. China has lifted as many asfour hundred million people out of poverty, since the implementation of thereform and opening upin the late 1970s. In the next five years, China willprovide supports to other developing countries in reducing poverty, developmenteducation, agricultural modernization, environmental protection and medicalcare, etc.China has seen notable improvements in reducing poverty, and hasmadeunremitting efforts in promoting economic growth. This will encourageotherpoor countries to strike back challenges when developing themselves.Whenpursuing the developing path with their own characteristics , thesecountries can learn from China’sexperience.
Recently, the Chinese government has decided to upgrade its industry. China isnow gettinginto the construction of high-speed trains, ocean-goingvessels,robots, and even aircrafts. Not long ago, Chinagained a contract to build ahigh-speed railway in Indonesia, and China also signed a contract with Malaysiato provide high-speed trains. This proves that people rely on productsmade byChina.
They are becoming increasingly popular.China has paid the price for this, butit does help to eradicate the povertyand create job opportunities for peopleworldwide. This is a good thing andworthwhile praising. you may possibly wantto take a look at the name of the originof the product. Probably, it is made inChina.
Parents in China are always trying to help their children, even to make themost important decision for them, regardless of what the children really want,because parents believe it’s all for the benefit of their children. This hasled to the result that the children’s growth and education tend to give way totheir parents’ wishes. Once the parents decide to sign up an afterschool classfor their children in order to increase their chance of being admitted to agood school, they will stick on their decision, even their children have nointerest in it at all.In America, however, parents tend to respect theirchildren, especially when making decisions. Perhaps it is commendable thatChinese parents lay much importance on education, but Chinese parents stillneed to keep the balance between the parents and children in the perspective ofeducation as the American parents do.
