Describe a rule at your school that you agree or disagree
You should say:

Why this rule has to be established
What will happen if we break down this rule?
What are the positive and negative effects of this rule
Speaking of a rule at my school that I disagree, the first thing that bumped into my mind is that there was a very strict rule requiring boys to have their hair cut to a certain length – in particular, I mean, to be specific, the hair had to be at least one inch above the collar. I was at a boy school so it didn’t apply to any girls, which was enforced by a teacher who had the job of walking around every Wednesday and checking boys’ hairstyles. I don’t know when the rule was made, but it was a very traditional school and it was a pretty old rule. I think it was standard for that kind of school. At the time, I didn’t like the rule because, like all the other boys, I really wanted to be, err, to have long hair. We thought that hair, long hair, looked good on men. This was in the 1970s when men all had shoulder-length hair and we were saturated with images of men with hair that was shoulder length or longer, – actors, pop stars, even the politicians. If you look back now, you can see that all of the men at that time had quite long hair. At the time I thought it was an unnecessary rule, and I was mortified on the day when I was given a haircut when the teacher caught me with my hair being too long. The school used to hire an army barber to come in and cut people’s hair if they were, uh, if they were caught breaking the rule. At the time, the school used to talk about encouraging a polite attitude, encouraging a civilized attitude, but I didn’t respect that.
The graph below shows the changes in four kinds of new home built from 2010 and 2020.
The line chart illustrates the variation in the number of newly-built houses in four categories in a specific area of the UK from 2010 to 2018 and future projections to 2020.
The trend in three kinds of houses shows great similarity during the period. Starting from 2600, we can see that detached houses were the most popular ones. After rising to a peak at around 2800 in 2012, the figure has declined consistently to the 2010 figure and the drop seems moreremarkable until 2020 when it is predicted to reach 2400. Terraced houses and semi-detached houses also follow an overall downward trend, with the former dropping from 1800 to 1600 and the latter from1500 to 1200, despite some fluctuation over the time frame.
Dramatic differences can be spotted in flats. In 2010, the least number of flats were built (around 1200), but the number successively exceeded that of semi-detached houses, terraced houses and now overtakes that of detached houses and will reach almost 2900 in the end, dominating the housing market.
Overall, the graph shows how flats have increased dramatically in the number while the popularity of the other three types has dropped over the period.(197 words)
考试题目： People today can shop, work and communicate with others via the Internet. They do not need to do these face to face. Is it a positive or negative development?
We live in an age of electronic communication, and the Internet does help us in a lot of ways. Yet the fact that we have computers and smartphones readily available does not mean that we do not need face-to-face communication any more.
Electronic technology has dramatically changed the ways we shop, work and communicate and has brought about a myriad of benefits. From emails to instant messaging to Skype to social media, the Internet has made our communication faster and easier than ever before. Besides, the cost of the Internet communication is significantly lower than the traditional means of communication like face-to-face meetings. The technology connects us to our online suppliers, colleagues in the workplace, families and friends from all over the globe for just a small fraction of the cost required of an offline meeting.
That being said, scientific evidence is mounting that the advent of digital technology is having a detrimental effect on interpersonal relationships. Everything from body language and facial expressions to attentiveness and engagement can indicate different thoughts and feelings—each of which can only be truly observed through face-to-face communication. So, despite the clear upsides of digital communication, there are circumstances under which there is no substitute for face-to-face communication. Meanwhile, the complete dependence on the Internet for communication may result in the sense of alienation and depression which will keep us apart from the rest of the real world.
In conclusion, it is necessary to balance those Internet interactions with face-to-face communication. It is hard to say how far the Internet would go, but face-to-face communication has not yet been and never will be replaced by technology.
