1. If you are a manager whom would you like to hire? “Key players” or “newbies”?
B: nice to meet you.
C: nice to meet you too.
A: here, I have a question for you. If you are a manager whom would you like to hire? “Key players” or “newbies”?
B :I would you like to hire Key players
C: I would you like to hire newbies.
A: Please tell the reasons why you choose them.
B: I would you like to hire newbies,because college students can bring fresh blood to the company.
C: but don’t you think they have no experience of work?
A: I agree with C . This problem would make a difference to your work.
B: It may be costly to train them into skillful workers, but they have some advantages over the key players. Newbies are young, and they can endure hardship. It’s easier to shape them into the sort of workers that the company wants. They often demand less. They are more obedient.
A:OK . It seems to have some truth.
B:So, C, can you tell me your reasons why you want to hire key players?
C: If I was a manager, I would hire “key players”. They are much experienced, and adaptive to the new environment in a short time.
A:I agree with you very much, C. Most of the “key players” are cooperative, risk-tolerant and good at interpersonal relationships. They can be counted on to take up certain responsibilities.
C: yes !that is right! We would save both money and time which otherwise would be spent in the training of newbies.
B:It is very reasonable of your opinions. But I have a question. If the managers always want to hire “Key players” the “newbies” would have no chance to have a good job . How can the graduated college students find their ideal jobs?
A:In my opinion. the graduated college students should choose the jobs without high salary.
C:Yes. It can help “newbies” gain some useful experience approach society.
A:For a company, I think it needs to have a certain kind of training courses, for newly graduated students. Usually employees gaining skills through company’s training are more loyal than those who have enough experiences already.
B:Yes, employees in this kind of companies will have a clear career plan for themselves, they can see what kind of people they would become after working a certain time, and this will increase their loyalty to the company.
C: It depends on the size and development of a company. For Top 500 Global corporations of course, they will have a series of training and a complete personnel system and training plans.
A:You are right, but for medium-sized companies, they would need to think in more economic ways, they don’t necessarily need to invest time and money into newbies whom they don’t know if can be trained into qualified or not, however, key players can immediately work according to requirement.
B:Well, but key players are more likely to change their jobs. This will also to some extent lead to time and money waste. What’s more, in my opinion, to hire
newbies and give them enough chances are closely related to Corporate Social Responsibility. A company shall not only care about the profit, but also their social responsibilities, only by this way, we can achieve the goal of building a harmonious society.
C: You are saying something too ideal, and this will take a long time to be realized. We are now discussing a topic in realty. Key players usually have more ideas towards what they do and they are more of innovation which help a company develop rapidly. B: In a short time, this maybe true, but if trained properly, newbies may have more innovated ideas because they are more easily to accept and create new ideas and these ideas may be more beneficial.
C: The managers would need to be intelligent enough to search for such kind of newbies.
A: Yeah, this is what the managers need to do.
B: Exactly, it is their job to find talented employees rather than the experienced ones.
C: Yes, but how about talented and experienced ones. They will quickly adapt to new environment and make contribution as fast as possible.
A: Both of your opinions are reasonable. Key players and newbies should be given equal chance.
2. What do you think is the ideal relationship?
A:As the high-speed development of society, the ideal relationship has gain a wide and extensive attention. What do you think is the ideal relationship?
B:It is essential for social sustainable development to obtain ideal relationship of interpersonal connection. Especially for close friendship, ideal relationship not only is mutual trust and common progress, but also has same values and visions. All around us, several close friends can hardly acquire ideal relationship, they play computer games together and keep up with the joneses each other unwholesomely, which causes harmful behavioral habits and damages physical health. In my opinion, mutual improvement and getting good physical and mental development are indispensable for ideal relationship of close friendship.What is essential for a long-term relationship?
C: It is no denying that keeping trust plays a important role in a long-term relationship, once cheat replace the trust, it is long-term relationship that would not exist. Trust is a bridge connecting each other’s heart, while cheat is a bottomless chasm. However, not only common language but common interest is required to maintain a stable friendship. Most importantly, it is mutual understanding that reclaim a new land for friendship to grow and mellow. Common interest and trust and mutual understanding is essential for a long-term relationship. People say it is difficult to maintain a long-term relationship nowadays. What do you think of this?
A: it is difficult to maintain a long-term relationship in our daily life, there are a mounting number of reasons accounting to this phenomenon. First of all, everyone is selfish and want to get maximum profits from the common cause, therefore it usually damages the harmonious atmosphere so that we can’t preserve a long-term relationship. Moreover, currently our society lacks of trust between the two persons, such as food security, drug security, false advertisements and so on. This reasons prompt us not to establish a sustainable long-term relationship. Last but not least, sufficient temptations can’t make us firm individual standpoints, which leads to erratic behaviors in a long-term relationship. But
I think these reasons can’t be excuses of distrust.
B: To better solve this problems, more importantly, concerted efforts from governments and individuals are taken urgently, the governments should set a series of laws and regulations so as to norm the social order. For an individual, we should keep a good habit of resisting temptation which is aimed at maintain a long-term relationship.
C: Therefore, we should maintain a long-term relationship and an ideal relationship in order to make our life more and more healthy and harmonious. That’s all, thanks.
3.What are the factors that cause stress? Is stress good for us or not? Stressful situations. Techniques for reducing stress.
A:B, do you often feel stressed?
A: And what factors do you think cause stress?
B: Sometimes the stress comes from inside, rather than outside. Stress comes from lacking of ability. When I feel I can’t do something well or I can’t finish my work in time, I will be stressed. You even can stress yourself out just by worrying about things.
A: C, How do you think?
C: first, I think School is the biggest cause of stress especially for students.
I always feel stressful before the exams, such as this one. Or before having speeches in front of colleagues. Then comes the jobs stress. Such as Being unhappy in your job, having a heavy workload or too much responsibility, working long hours and working under dangerous conditions.
B: I think Family stresses is another important one. Examples are: the death of a loved one, divorce, moving to a new home, and taking care of an elderly or sick family member.
C: And any major life change can be stressful -- even a happy event like a wedding. More unpleasant events, such as a divorce, major financial setback, or death in the family can be significant sources of stress.
A:Yes, since stress is an unavoidable part of life, is it good for us or not? B: In small doses, stress can actually be beneficial to us. Stress can help push us into action. even helping to keep us focused on the problem at hand. For example, exams give us stress while it makes us study harder. This type of stress is good. C: yes, it is only when the stress becomes too great, affecting our physical or mental functioning, that it becomes a problem and require an urgent solution to reduce stress. such as the stress experienced by people with some disabilities.
A: Or Being abused as a child.
A: so we can divide them into two parts, good stress and bad stressed. Most stresses that activate us are considered to be good. And any stress that is long-term and brings about long-term anxiety is considered to be bad for our health. Anything that turns your world upside-down is bad stress. We all want to feel safe and secure, but we cannot always count on things being the same. We experience different things in our lives that turn our world upside down and cause us to feel stress. B, do you know some stressful situations?
B: I think death of a loved one makes people stressful. This is something which we can do little about. Many people recover from this stressor and continue with their lives. Others never fully recover. Then comes the major illness. One person being
ill does not just affect that person, but everyone around him or her. A major illness is one of the worst stressors we can endure as it can go on for years. C: yes, and Divorce. Even if we are glad to get rid of our ex-partner, divorce is a major stressor in our lives. In addition to causing us to feel stress, it can also stress out our children. What’s more, losing a job often results in depression as well as anxiety. You will probably experience stress after you get a new job. A: And in some cases, happy events such as the birth of a child, marriage, or even a new job can lead to stress. But there is good news still. There are many techniques that can be used to reduce stress in life , do you know some?
B: First, you should have a healthy lifestyle. A healthy balanced diet can provide us with the energy we need. Certain foods such as banana can lift mood. Exercise can increase energy and is believed to affect mood and makes us feel happier. C: Relaxation is also important. Sleep – a good night sleep helps reduce stress. However, a regular routine with sleep can help, get up at the same time every day. breathing exercises, going for a walk or even having a hot bath. All of this reduces stress levels.
A: yes. And when you stressed, you can take a 5-minute break and focus instead on your breathing. Or talking about problems with others.It helps relieve stress and also can help you moving on.
4.Do you think that the basic nature of human beings does not change? Is Human nature good or evil?
A:Hi, B! I’ve seen you walked out of the library, what have you been studying for recently?
B:Oh, hey! My tutor just asked me to do a research, I was trying to search some information in the library.
C:Hi, you two! What are you talking about?
B:We are discussing about A’s research.
C:Interesting! What’s the topic?
A:People’s opinion on the basic human nature, like…eh…does it change, or, is it good or evil…something like that.
C:Whoa, that’s sounds very abstruse. Have you got some researching plans?
A:Yes, I decide to make some interviews with different people, and analyze their answers…talking about my plan, oh, I’ve got an idea!
A:Since we’ve met here, you two can just be my interviewers!
C:That’s ok! I’m glad to help you with your research.
B:I’m glad, too.
A:Thanks! So, do you think that the basic nature of human beings does not change? B:Well, I think basic human nature doesn’t change.
A:You do? Why?
B:I think only the surface that is capable of alteration, improve and refinement.
I mean, we can alter only people’s customs, manners, dress and habits.
C: I agree with you.
B:Moreover, I think no one wishes his nature to change. For example, one may covet the position of President or King, but would not change places with them, unless it meant the continuance of his own identify.
C:Yes, nowadays, each man sees himself as unique, and so far as he is concerned the center of the universe, and different from any other individual. When Mr. Smith is mistaken for Mr. Jones, then the one who made mistake should apologize.
B:Yes! That’s what exactly I meant! A, what do you think about this problem? A:Me? Eh…I think every man has a unique character. No two people will ever draw the same conclusions from the same experiences, but each one will analyze them in his own way and fit them into the mosaic of his own life's pattern. Human nature is ever true itself, not to systems of faith or education. The qualities born in one remain as potentials whether they have a chance to develop or not. They may disappear from view for considerable periods of time when people are under pressure, or change of interest, but nothing can permanently change them, nothing can erase them.
C:So, to some extend, we three share the same opinion on this problem!
A:Yes! All right, let’s move on to the next question.Is Human nature good or evil? C:Good of course!
C:I think man is perfect when he is born, just as a seed, the spirit is perfect, but when it inhabits human structures, it becomes less perfect, and during its association with the outside world, it shows the mortal weakness, desires and limitations. But the spirit, the inner man, remains untouched and undefiled by evil. Only the outer man, I mean the personality and the physical body, will become imperfect, due to ignorance, wrong thinking and violation of the law of being. The outer man, was originally perfect, too, but man has so desecrated and abused it that today it is far away from the original model.
B:That’s true. It explains why behavior attracts attention only when it deviates from the normal. Such as the good neighbor, the conscientious citizen, the kind father and faithful husband pass unnoticed. But the murderer, robber or wife beater is singled out for publicity, because such behavior is unusual.
A:Yes! Man's goodness, is revealed by his countless acts of heroism, unselfishness and sacrifice. We often read on the newspaper that people save others at the peril of their own lives. One jumps into the river and rescues a swimmer from drowning; another rushes into a burning house and carries a stranger to safety; many give their blood so that others may live. Countless unnamed and unrecorded men have given their lives for their fellowmen, not only on the battlefront but on the home- front as well.
C:Absolutly! So the conclusion is: Human nature is good, and it doesn’t change! B:Yes!
A:Okay, let me write down. Thank you so much, you two have just helped me a lot! B&C: You are welcome!
5.What do you think is the purpose of education? Do you want to further your study in an overseas country? Why or why not? Which do you think is more important, higher education or job training?
A: Our presentation is like a broadcast program. OK, let’s start now.
B: Hello, and welcome to The Purpose of Education. I’m B. Joining me today is my college A.
A: Hello. I’m A. Education is always a hot topic for both Chinese and foreign experts to search, but so far, only few people understand why we need to get education? And we invited C, as our guest today. Hi, C!
B: Hello C!
C: Hi A,B! Hello everyone!
B: All right, C, could you talk something about yourself for us?
C:My family told me when I was a little girl and I went to school just for my future
life, accepting education means to learn knowledge, get a good job, and then have a very happy marriage.
A:Yes, not only you, but even for almost any others. If you go to interview some pedestrians on the street, asking them “what’s the purpose of education in your mind?” I guess most of their answers would be the same as the one your family has given you.
B: But can we dare to say that all the answers are wrong? Absolutely not. For this question of education, What’s your opinion, C?
C: Well, first of all, the most traditional understanding of education is teaching you some knowledge, so I think the most fundamental purpose of accepting education is to increase our knowledge and skills, then influence our life, and eventually, change the world.
A: Yes, it is . Now for us, school education seems more important, in many people's eyes, a person accept education good or bad depends on the result of their examination.
C: Yeah, all the knowledge that teachers impart in class is all the most basic knowledge we need. I think if we want to study well from teachers, the first thing you have to make clear is what you need. As long as we understand what we do want to learn, then we will have great direction and purpose to learn, naturally we will do it well.
B: Maybe, for example, not only myself but also do my classmates’ favorite class is foreigner teachers’ class. In their class, we need to improve our oral English, learning more interesting knowledge about the other countries, so in their class, we will learn a lot knowledge what we willing to accept.
C: Yes. On the other hand, I think the purpose of education is also to reflect others. That is teaching you how to live your life. I think education with teach you knowledge, more should teach their methods, rather than teaching knowledge but showing the methods may be a better way of practicing education, so after they are leaving school, they still know how to study by themselves.
A: You mean the education is the way which teaching us living skills, right?
C: Absolutely. Nowadays, many Chinese universities have the same purposes as those vocational schools; they hope after training, can let the students find the good job quickly.
B: But the lack of this is there is no one to help the students to predict the future market direction, no one knows how can students according to what they do interest to choose their future career direction reality, usually students don't know anything, or according to their own choice, usually later they found it wasn’t like that way and they felt disappointed.
C: Well, speaking deeply is that while the teacher teaching knowledge, teaching communicates skills, teaching the ideological and moral education, values and so on are also the education.
B: Oh, as what we said “Two heads are better than one”. As the famous educators Xingzhi Tao said “life is education”. Everywhere in your life is education. A: Yes, it is. Accurately education has no broad. Education not only restrictions on schooling, the most important of education is concerned about living and other in your life. Do you think so?
C: Yeah, and my view is that the ultimate purpose of education is to respect life, is to learn to love life.
A:Hi, B! I heard that you want to go abroad to study, really?
B: Oh yes, I'm going to study in America next month.
A: You know, in recent years, there are more and more college students
want to further their study in an overseas country. B, how do you think of this phenomenon?
B: Umm, I think its benefits outweigh its disadvantages. Firstly, in many cases grants are available to cover some or all of the tuition and living costs during the period abroad. Secondly, acquiring advanced language skills can be personally enriching and an asset for your future. Last but not the least, experiencing another educational system can be instructive and insightful.
C: Sounds great! And you may make friends from all over the world!
B: Oh, yes, I like to make friends. C, do you want to go abroad to study?
C: Well, there are a lot of good to study in an overseas country. But I don't want to go abroad to study.
A: Why? I think that is an opportunity to get to know and travel around a country in a way that is not possible on a holiday or short visit.
C: Yes, it is. But in my opinion, travel and living costs may be considerably higher than a comparable period at your home institution, even if you are receiving a grant to cover some of the costs. Besides, the amount which you learn may be less if learning in a foreign language and your academic performance in that language may be limited. What’s more, you may find it difficult to adapt to a different social environment.
A: Well, like everything in this world, it emerged both rewards and risks. As regards this, different people have different ideas. Whether studying abroad or not is determined by personal circumstances.
B: Yep, you are right.
A: Which do you think is more important, higher education or job training?
C: In different occasions, it's hard to say which is more important. In the current society, with a low employment rate, you can only choose you job even though you don't like it.
A: Yeah, you know, most top-level graduated students are selling their pork in the market, with their professional certificate staying in a corner. Maybe someday you will find your job you are interested in; however, you are only allowed to work for living before you find it.
C: So, be positive, and you will get what you want.
B: As regards this, some people claim that there are many advantages for college students to take part-time jobs. Maybe they think that can improve their job training.
A: Yes, I have taken a part-time job as a designer. I think it can help me learn something that doesn’t exist in books but in practice. Besides, I can gain more work experience, which is very useful for my future work.
B: Well, in my opinion, the main task for students is to study well and improve our own abilities. But if we have more time and energy and can ensure that our courses are all excellent, maybe we can take a part-time job for a try.
C: In fact, it’s hard for university students to find a good job. Some companies say that they need people who have good education background. But I think experience is more important.
A: Indeed, a man shouldn’t limit himself in a book. For instance, my brother studies very hard. He is so smart that he can work out every math problems at school. But he isn’t sociable enough. When he went to a famous company to work, he didn’t know what to do and how to react when a mistake happened. No wonder a few months later, the company kicked him out.
B: But in fact education is also very important. If we want to get a good job, we must have both of them. To realize this, we must work hard from now on. During
holidays, read more books to enrich our knowledge and take an active part in extracurricular activities. Only in this way can we find a good job with ease. C: The education is just one more advantage in a competitive job market. I agree that education does not matter in your current job, but it very well may matter when you are looking for your next job.
6.Do you agree with the statement “What doesn’t kill you actually makes you stronger”? Why or why not?Have you had the experience of going through a very difficult situation and coming out as a better person? Or do you know someone who has experienced this?
A: Hey! B! today we have learn the English class of Unit 1. How about your class? B: Oh, our topic is “the hidden side of happiness” By learning this lesson, I have benefit a lot.
A: haha,me too!
C: Hi,What are you talking about?
B: We were just talking about the English class of Unit 1!
C: Oh, do you remember the sentence “ What doesn’t kill you actually makes you stronger”?
A,B: Of course!
C: OK, Do you agree with the statement?
A: I think it is right because everyone want to live a meaningful life, so we need to make a change. Changes are painful, however, sometimes only drastic situations can force you to take on the painful process of changes.
B: C, I agree with A. Besides, People who had suffered disaster would have wider mind, when bad things come around, they can treat them calmly.
C: Well, there are many things which are very important to our lives. Happiness is the only the one of them.To live a full life, only to be in the stable situation is not enough. We also need to grow, sometimes through hurts and pains.
B: We shall need more courage to go further in our life.
A,C: Haha, yes, that’s right!
A: Usually, we would love to hear the stories of people who have been changed by what they had suffered. And then supposing that they would became a better man after that.
C: Yes, These stories inspire people to make progress.
B: Yeah, I know that feeling.
C: Have you ever had the experience of going through a very difficult situation and coming out as a better person?
B: Yes I have.
A: Oh!~ I’m sorry to hear that. I mean that you’ve had a difficult situation. But I’m very glad that you have come through it.
B: Thank you,A.
C: So... Would you like to tell us about you story ?
B: All right. I was diagnosed with a bad disease at the age of ten, and I had endured the treatments for many years. It’s killing me.
A: Oh, that’s awful.
B: Yes, I ached all over and I couldn’t sleep during the whole night at that time.
I was upset, desperate and felt helpless.
A: Well, then what happened?
B: En~~fortunately! A very kind doctor helped me, and I recovered!
C: As the old saying goes: the sunlight always comes after rains and winds. People who have grown from adversity often feel much less fear. What they gained was more than they ever anticipated.
B: Oh, yes!~ As long as you worked hard, nothing is impossible.
A: After the most terrifying experiences, although a small part of adults become troubled, more commonly, people rebound or even thrive.
C: Oh, it sounds really nice.
B: We have seen some cases in which some people were struck by misfortune and became stronger than before once they came out of it.
A: Do you know someone who has experienced this?
B: For example The Great Tangshan Earthquake
C: I have watched a film about The Great Tangshan Earthquake. I will never forget it. It was in the afternoon, July 28th, Tangshan suffered an 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Left more than 200 thousand people dead and about 400 thousand people injured. Almost every survived people had lost his or her family members, Tangshan,
a industrial city with population of millions had been in ruins.
A: oh, my god!
B: After that, people of Tangshan went out of the misfortune and began to re-build their home. Many years passed, now a beautiful and flourishing city has been built by Tangshan people who suffered from the disaster.
A: Thank goodness! I do admire the brave Tangshan people.
C: In my opinion ,the people who struggle with adversity sometime can foster the qualities such like brave, kindness...
C: Yes, it’s very important.
A: And compassion.
C: Well, and creativity.
B: Yes, you are right. These qualities can make people stronger.
A: In a word, you are not going to be the person you thought you were ,but here is who you are going to be instead and that turns out to be a pretty great life.

8. Have you notices the problem in China that buildings are in a state of a “clashing of different taste”?
What do you think of the tendency to design sustainable buildings.
A:As the high-speed development of society, the style of building in China has gain a wide and extensive attention. Have you notices the problem in China that buildings are in a state of a “clashing of different taste”?
B: Yes. Certainly. Architectural culture under certain conditions can be transformed.
In today’s world. Building a culture of development and progress, both the transformation of the former to the letter, which also includes the absorption and integration of the former. Social process of globalization has brought to the cultural collision with the rendezvous, conflict and blend. China’s building in the global “big architectural culture” system, so it is normal. In addition, cultural exchange between old and modern architectural exploration and the pursuit of ancient and modern culture also play a role in the phenomenon.What do you think of the tendency to design sustainable buildings?
C: Buildings are one of the three major sources that emit greenhouse gas, accounting for about 30 percent of global greenhouse emission every year. So it is necessary to develop the sustainable building. The green structure is L-shaped and can withstand the force of a 9.0-magnitude earthquake. The weight of construction material for every square meter is only one-sixth of traditional materials. The weight of construction garbage is only one percent of building.
9. Why should we preserve biodiversity? What’s the relationship between human and nature? How do they interact each other?
A:As the high-speed development of society, the biodiversity in China has gain a wide and extensive attention. Why should we preserve biodiversity?
