【模拟训练参考作文1】My View on Advertisements on TV
Nowadays advertisements are very common. Whenever you turn on TV, you are likely to see ads. The advertisers are trying to inform you of the many different sorts of uptodate products on the market. Besides, it often occurs while you are absorbed in watching a wonderful film on TV, endless commercials interrupt you from time to time, and make you quite annoyed.
There are two reasons, I think, for the growing number of ads on TV. First, in a competitive economy, the consumer usually has the choice of several different brands of the same product. Thus, manufacturers are confronted with a problem—how to keep their sales high enough to stay competent in the business. They solve this problem by advertising. By advertising, each producer tries to convince the consumers that its product is preferable. Second, most consumers are interested in ads. They want to get from TV ads the firsthand information about new products, which enables them to choose the one they like best. Consequently, ads increase a lot on the TV screen.
As far as I am concerned, I am in favor of TV ads because most of them are interesting and informative. But there is no denying that some TV ads are tedious and boring. So I feel TV stations are faced with an arduous task to strengthen the control of ads, to improve their quality and to make them attractive.
【模拟训练参考作文2】My View on Bicycles in China
China is called the kingdom of bicycles because it has the largest number of bicycles in the world. The bicycle is the most popular transportation tool in China. Wherever you go, you can see many people riding on bikes to go to work, school, do shopping, or visit friends. During the rush hour, you may see a boiling sea of bikes in all directions.
Compared with cars, bikes have many advantages. First, they are very handy and convenient. With a bike, you can go anywhere you like, and you needn’t look for a large parking place in a crowded town. By riding bikes, you can avoid traffic jams and thus save the time. Second, they are not very expensive, and almost every family can afford them. Third, they do not cause air or sound pollution. Besides, riding bikes regularly does good to your health. In modern times, people are usually too busy to have any time for physical exercise. Riding bikes serves as a good way to keep yourself strong and healthy.
However, bicycles also have some disadvantages. For example, they make streets crowded and are likely to cause traffic accidents. In rainy or snowy weather, riding bikes may be difficult, and fall from them may result in injury. But despite the disadvantages, the bicycle is still very useful, convenient and necessary means of transportation in China. And I do believe it will still be so in future.
Fiction Can Teach Us More
Fiction, such as novels and short stories, is always considered as a way of entertainment, but as far as I am concerned, I think it is far more than a pure relaxation. It can be instructive, and it can even teach us more about life than textbooks.
Authors of famous works are usually wellexperienced. They put all their knowledge and social experience into their literary works. They create a colorful world in which we can find great quantity of treasure.
Since fiction is primarily based on everyday life, the knowledge it includes is always close to life. It is easy to master and ready to practice. On the contrary, textbooks focus on specialized subjects and they intend to be obtuse, theoretical or abstract and therefore dull. To most ordinary people, fiction is more acceptable.
There is no royal road to learning. 学无坦途。
Another reason why fiction is superior to textbooks lies in their imagination. Authors always create attractive characters so as to give his opinion aboutnature and the society as well as life. It not only provides knowledge, but also teaches us what is the right attitude toward life. For instance, we can learn
from Gone With the Windhow to be a strongwilled person; from Jack London,how to love life. We can be stimulated to overcome all obstacles to realize our ambitions.
So, fiction enables people to form their positive view of life, optimism of spirit and invincible courage. In this aspect, fiction provides us with an opportunity to learn and to practice, while textbooks barely can.
