1. You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

◆At present it is hard for college graduates to find jobs. Many people claim that college teachers should give priority to practical courses like computer science and business over such traditional ones as history and geography. What do you think?

◆You should write at least 250 words.

These days there is a growing tendency for college students to have difficulties in finding job when they graduate. A large number of people hold the opinion that lack of practical knowledge, among other things, contributes to this situation. In light of this, they contend that college teachers should lay more stress on practical courses than on traditional ones. For my part, I am in favour of their viewpoint.

In the first place, emphasis on practical courses is demanded by our ever-developing society. As society has entered the information age and commercialization is sweeping across the world, computer and business courses are geared to the social demand. Conversely, if a student has little knowledge of computers or business, he will lag behind the times. By contrast, it seems that traditional courses are out of date. They are either too theoretical or too academic, so that they can’t be directly applied to the tasks of real life.

In the second place, practical knowledge has a direct bearing on future job prospects. There is no denying the fact that the students better equipped with practical knowledge are more competitive in job hunting, while those majoring in history, geography and the like have few job opportunities. It turns out that many of them have to take jobs below their abilities. Harsh reality confirms that traditional courses have lost much ground.

When all the factors are examined, we may safely come to the conclusion that the balance should be tipped toward practical courses in school curriculums. College education, in my opinion, should become more attuned to the demands of employers.

◆Some people think that old people should not be forced by law to retire at the age of 60 – 65 if they wish to continue working. Do you agree with this point of view?

◆You should write at least 250 words.

There has long been a debate about whether old people should be forced to retire from work at the age of sixty or sixty-five, regardless of their own wishes. People in favor of this say that old people, having worked for over thirty or forty years, should not go on working, because physically they are not as strong, healthy and energetic as they used to be, and mentally they are not able to endure the same pressure of having to work to earn a living as young people are. Personally, I do not agree with this point of view for the following reasons:

First, it seems to me that no one should be forced to change his / her lifestyle unless he / she has committed a crime. People, whether they are old or young, should have the right to decide their own way of life. Just as young people can choose to stop working and enjoy their leisure time as long as they can make ends meet, old people should also be allowed to continue working, provided they are still qualified for their jobs.
