Topic 1 The Necessity of Examination
As regards examination,there has been a heated discussion among the general public in oursociety.
People who believe in its necessity may have some arguments as follows.
To begin with,examination helps to tell the better-behaved from the worse-behaved students.
What’s more,examination may stimulate the students to work harder.
Take Xiao Wang as an example, a student from Hebei Normal University, he used to have apoor command of English.
However, under the pressure of College English Test Band 4, he made great progress and cannow speak fluent English.
By contrast, some people think that examination may give rise to a series of negative effects.
They maintain that examination can not always faithfully reflect one’s study performance.
It is believed that too many students may be misled and neglect the improvement ofpractical ability.
Examples of “High marks but poor competence” are often cited on different media.
Just as any coin has two sides, it’s no exception with the issue of examination.
Students should develop a right attitude towards it and strike a balance between examinationand practical ability achievement.
Topic 2 Integrate Chinese Culture into College Education
As a result of globalization and convenient interaction among different nations, a variety of native cultures are being or have been lost.
It’s true of Chinese culture as well.
We may easily recognize all sorts of English courses in college education curriculum but fewof Chinese culture.
And these indicate that Chinese traditional culture has been ignored in college education.

Topic 3 My View on Wide Spreading SMS
Nowadays, more and more young people have joined the clan of thumbs.
They use SMS as their major communication channel.
It is also reported that SMS is the most frequently used function for the mobile phone users inChina besides making calls.
SMS has brought us many advantages.
Firstly, with the tip of your finger, messages including words, digital pictures and music can besent to another user within seconds.
Secondly, you can send one message to many users without rewriting it.
What’s more, compared with making calls, SMS is much cheaper because the provider charges only 0.1 yuan per message.
However, short messages disturb our life sometimes.
Spam messages are quite annoying, and there are an increasing number of victims who have been cheated or fooled by them.
As for me, I prefer this way of communication.
It gives me much convenience to my daily life.
But I also hope some measures should be taken to punish those spreading spam messages so that we can enjoy the modern information technology safely.
