He is very professional in his academic field and a lovely old man at home. He is an accurate person being precise on anything, on his calculation, his lab work and even on cooking. My grandpa is very kind to me and my brother yet he can be very restricting when checking our schoolwork because of his accuracy.


Topic 3: important Ceremony or event

I’ll never forget my graduation ceremony.

It was held in 2014 in ***** University. In that ceremony, I achieved my master of sciences degree in Biochemical Engineering. It was a wonderful reward of my two years hard study and also a perfect start of my future work. At the ceremony, I was like a superstar receiving everyone’s flowers, congratulations, being shot by tens of cameras simultaneously and celebrate our success with all of my classmates. We deserve such a happy party.


Topic 4: Favorite Place

La pure café

My friends and I often go to la pure café in our spare time. It just locates in our neighborhood so it’s very convenient for us to go there. We can enjoy its famous cappuccino coffee or chocolate ice cream, the cherry cake and cookies are also delicious. There is nearly hundreds taste of coffee and ice cream worthy to try, most important, they are not expensive. It is a quiet place at where I can talk with my friends, share our happiness, or play some chess. There also serve some fashion magazines that people can read for free.


Topic 5: Best Gift 


It was a gift from my boyfriend to congratulate my graduation two years ago. Although its model is a bit out of date its work performance is still in good conditions. I spend at least 5 hours in front of my laptop every day. It is the most important tool for my study and work. I need it to finish my paper, make presentation slides, and do the lab data analysis, simulate the Chemical Engineering model. In my spare time, I use the laptop to surf on the internet to read the news or find useful information, chat with friends.


Topic 6: Important characteristics of friend

I think a good friend should be first of all honesty. There’s no friendship can last long if it builds on lies. And a good friend should also be frank, he should point out my weakness if I’m wrong instead of pricing me all the time. And a good friend should be the best support of mine, who is always willing to help me, listen to me, share our happiness or sorrow. It says that a friend in need is a friend indeed.


Topic 7: Famous Activity in your country

There are many popular sports in China, for example, soccer, volleyball, table tennis, badminton etc. Among these games, I think the most popular one is table tennis. Chinese has won nearly all the top prizes of table tennis in world championship competition and in Olympics games. I think this is the most important reason that table tennis is famous in China. It’s a competitive game and it can improve people’s quick reaction as well as flexibility. Even primary school students can play it very well.


Topic 8: Describe A difficulty experience and how to solve it

Last week I installed my laptop by my own, it may not be considered as a problem by others but it was really a big difficulty to me. I never installed a whole operating system before. Last week my laptop got a virus and crashed, unfortunately, I was in urgent need of my computer to prepare my TOEFL exam. I have to get all the software CDs, print out some install instructions from the internet, carefully follow the protocols, backup all my important information and data before formatting the hard disk…there were so many unknown things to me, but fortunately, I finally managed them all and get my computer recovered.


Topic 9: Small group discussion or lecture

In a larger lecture, you may feel boring with professor’s speech or become sleepy after a while so your understanding will decline. But this will not happen during group discussion. Group discussion is more efficient for carrying on a project, everyone is forced to give their own opinion and thinking. Group discussion can inspire creativity and brainstorming, in a discussion you will automatically find your knowledge become more systematically and improved during the group talks.


Topic 10: Eat out with friends or eat at home

We would prefer to eat in restaurants. The first reason is that we usually are exhaust after a whole day work and have no energy to cook. And we often feel starve after work so we want to find something to eat as soon as possible, to cook by myself is too time-consuming, so definitely to eat out is a quick solution. And there are many good restaurants located around my company and my neighborhood, it’s not expensive but very delicious food. We can easily choose any one of those, finish our dinner within an hour and enjoy the rest of the evening.


Topic 11: Describe a Public visiting

Sagrada Familia

I’ve been to Barcelona twice, and have been to Sagrada Familia twice. I was shocked by the great architecture even though it’s not finished yet. The architect Mr. Antoni Gaudi made it a perfect fusion of the natural elements and every piece of the block in this church. You will find the inspirations of pillars come from the trees and leaves, the tower shape comes from corns and flowers. It was amazing that Gaudi can design such a complicate church as an artwork and the Barcelona people’s great patience in building it.


Topic 12: Large city university or small city university

I would prefer the university in a small city. The small city is quiet and peaceful, it is a perfect place for study. I used to study in a famous university locates in a small city of Europe for several years, and I enjoyed the academic atmosphere very much. I will not be bothered about noise or traffic jam. We can easily get to campus by bicycle within 10 minutes so we’ll not waste our time on traffic, there’s always fresh air and beautiful flowers outside my window, so we’ll not worry of air pollution.


Topic 13: Prefer live with roommates or alone

I would like to live with one or two roommates. First of all, by sharing a room with others it will reduce the rent. Second I will not feel lonely because the roommate’s existence, we can talk to each other, share information and cook together. And it is a good way to get to know more friends, we can take the chance to know each other’s friends. I used to have a roommate who is a very capable girl. She is now one of my best friends. I learned a lot from her, and we still keep in touch even we’ve moved apart for two years.


Topic 14: Prefer poem, magazine or novel

I would prefer to read a novel. Poem and magazines are very good literature but for me, they are too short and easily can be forgotten. But a novel is a relatively long and a complete story, it is more attractive by the story’s developing pace. So the story is easy to be remembered. And in different novels, we can experience various styles of life, those we may not have chances to make it by our own life. There can be romantic stories like <gone with the wind>, magic worlds like in the <Harry Potter>, and even some history novels by which we can easily understand the world evolution……
