大学英语 3 作文范文
Last night at about 11 o’clock, my brother and I came home from a movie. As I was opening the door to our apartment, I heard cries of babies from next door. A couple with three kids lived there. The couple didn’t seem to have any job and they spent most of their time at home. The kids ranged in age from one year to five years old. They were one girl and two boys and they were pretty. I knocked at their door but nobody answered. The cries went even louder. I figured there was something wrong. My brother reminded me of the Crimestoppers number and I called. Within ten minutes, the police came. There were three of them. They knocked at the door but still no one came to it. They called the Superintendent and he opened the door with the master key. Inside we could see three kids crying over the couple who were lying on the floor, unconscious. There were about a dozen used syringes beside them. The room smelled terrible. Ambulances came after fifteen minutes, taking the couple to the hospital. The police took the kids under care immediately. It has been said that they will be staying at the Interval House for women and children for a while. Writing task Direction: For this part, you should write at least 120 words. Base your letter on the outline given in Chinese below. Remember to include the three parts.

  53. Hoping to hear from you in the near future. Sincerely yours, Zhang Tianli Should Learners Aim to Speak English with a Native Speaker Pronunciation?
In my opinion, there is no point in aiming to speak English with a native-speaker pronunciation. For most people, it is a waste of time. First, language is a tool for communication among human beings. If people we meet understand what we are saying, that is all that is necessary. We do not need to imitate native speaker’s pronunciation. In any case, there are many types of accents, so which one should we choose to imitate? Second, the most important thing is how well we organize what we want to express. Our ideas should be clear and easy to understand. To do so, we should be able to use right words and correct grammar. Third, given the fact that we live in China, it seems a little bit pointless for us to try desperately hard to get rid of our national accent in order to speak BBC English. Finally, each of us has our own style when we speak. If we can give free rein to personal style, the English-speaking world will become more colorful and more interesting. In a word, I prefer to speak with my characteristic and recognizable pronunciation, so long as listeners can understand me. Sample 2 Yes, I think it is important to aim for native-speaker pronunciation. First of all, I think perfection is always a good goal in any aspect of language-learning. We aim for perfect grammar, so why not perfect pronunciation? Second, the purpose of learning a language is to communicate with native speakers or people from other parts of the world. The better my pronunciation is, the more easily they will be able to understand me. And I want people to understand me without any difficulty. Third, English is now an international language and I would like to be part of that community. If my pronunciation is like a native-speaker’s, I will blend into the community more naturally. I’ll feel pleased if I am taken for a native-speaker. Even if I can’t speak so well, I don’t like to spoil the language by terrible pronunciation. So learners should aim to speak English with a native-speaker pronunciation. Animals Should Be Trained There are a wide variety of animals in the world. And many of them are highly intelligent. So if we train some animals to work for human beings, we can save a lot of money and manpower. First, some kinds of animals can be trained based on their capacity to do certain types of jobs better than humans. For example, since dogs have a superior ability to track down odors, we can train them to find illegal drugs, earthquake victims, or even ancient tombs. Second, some animals can even lend us their hands. The monkey is a good example. Monkeys can be trained to learn to open doors, fetch tools, bring books, etc. So they can help those who cannot move about freely because of some physical problems. Monkeys make the lives of these people happier and more comfortable. Finally, in some cases, using animals not only saves money but also trouble. Using dolphins as underwater guards can be better and cheaper than any man-made tracking devices. In a word, animal should be trained to help humans. If we train animals in the proper way, both humans and animals can get along very well.
Give Animals Their Freedom Humans and animals are both creatures of nature, so we are equals. We have no right to take advantage of them. However, many animals are now being trained to work for us. Monkeys are trained as servants, dogs as hunters and sniffers, and dolphins as soldiers. Beasts should be allowed to run freely over great distances and birds, fly freely in the blue sky. When they are in nature, they are active and able to live a normal life. But when they are kept in captivity, they are bored and frustrated. If we have the right to choose our fate, so do animals. So when we force them to serve us, they have no freedom and are like slaves. What’s more, a lot of animals lose their lives when they help humans. But most of humans don’t care about their lives at all. As we know, life belongs to us only once and therefore is priceless, and it is also true with animals. But we show no mercy to animals when they have done so much for us. We are cold-blooded creatures and we should criticize ourselves. In brief, we should treat animals in the same way we treat other people. Give animals their freedom. Traveling is Wonderful In school we always study hard and rarely have time for play and relaxation. During our vacation, we can do what we like. Some students go swimming, watch TV, go to the cinema, etc. But all I want to do is to travel. Traveling is interesting. You can see a lot of fascinating things and you can learn about history. Three years ago, I went to Beijing. When I was in the Summer Palace, I walked through the famous Long Corridor, admiring the beautiful pictures drawn on it. In the Imperial Palace, I saw a lot of rare treasures I had never seen before, I went to the Great Wall as well as the Ming Tombs. After visiting these famous Places, I can’t help feeling proud of my great motherland. I think it is important to travel to a different country, if possible, so that you can learn about different cultures and customs. It can widen your knowledge of the world. In addition to learning new things, you can also discover the beauty of nature by yourself. When you are on the top of a mountain, you can breathe fresh air, you can see green scenery below and you can hear the sounds of nature. It is a very wonderful feeling. Now I’d like to invite you to go on a trip with me. Can you refuse? Which Has Had More Influence on You, Heredity or Environment? I both benefit and suffer much from heredity. A short stout figure, an introverted personality, and unimaginative but rational mind: all of these traits come from the genes passed on to me from my parents. But family, schools and society work together to shape what I am today. My parents are both sport lovers, which makes me fond of physical exercises and turns my frame into a strong body. My honest parents punish me severely whenever I lie or make empty promises, thus I’ve learned the importance of personal integrity. At school I’ve learned to help others, to care for others and also to improve my reasoning and understanding skills. Learning about various positive and
negative examples of behavior from the media and other sources of information, I have set my own moral standards regarding what to do and what not to do, what to like and what to hate. Environment can change a person completely no matter where he was born and what he genetically inherited from his parents. I always believe that a person can succeed in doing anything he feels interested in. Your environment provides all sorts of opportunities and the things necessary for your personal pursuit and achievement.
