1. Describe a time you learned a new subject.
When I was in junior high, I had to learn English for the first time, and it was really hard for me to pick up at first. The words, grammar and sentence patterns are just so different from Chinese. But with the help of my English teacher, I gradually learnt some basic words and useful phrases, and I started practicing English with foreigner whenever I got a chance, the more I acquire, the more I am willing to learn and I put more effort and I am determined to be really good in English. Now, after so many years, I am still a big fan of the English language, and I cannot live a single day without it.
2. Among the following professions, which do you think is the most important to a city? Police officer, building designer or transport worker.
I would say police is the most important job to a city, though they do not really get paid that much, what they do is very essential to the community. They prevent lawbreaking behaviors, like robbery, burglary, and even speeding, they hunt down criminals and preserve the safety of the community. Plus, you can call police officers for help, like when you neighbor is very noisy and you feel like you are disturbed, they also help to address common complaints like that. That is basically why I think police is the most important out these three professions.
3. What do you think the government should do to decrease the usage of cars or other vehicles and solve the traffic problems?
There are lots of ways for the city to decrease the usage of cars and other vehicles, and deal with the traffic jams. Firstly, the decision makers should invest more money to improve public transportation, like adding more bus routes; develop express local trains and renovating bumpy roads. Secondly, they in order to limit the number of private cars on roads, more tax should be imposed on gasoline price, and they probably should reduce the price of public transportation, and make it more accessible to citizens, so when they commute, they will only consider using public transportation.
4. University students often feel home sick when they are away from home. What do you often do to deal with home sickness?
There are lots of activities you can do to help you deal with homesickness. Personally, I think making new friend whenever I am away from home is a very effective way to ease my homesickness. By interacting with new friends, I feel like it is a very easy for me to fit in the local culture, also, I can enrich my own experience and broaden my horizon by exchanging different ideas with new friends. On top of that, I would say chatting with my family online is also very helpful, not only can you hear their voice, you can also see their face. Basically, it's like you are talking to them face to face. You can update them what's going on with your own life, like the people you meet, the places you have been, so on and so forth.
5. Which of the following would you rather be? Lawyer, veterinarian or restaurant owner. Explain your answer in details.
I would say I like to be a restaurant owner, doing business is like my childhood dream, it is a great profession and it bring me great personal satisfaction and monetary value, but I am aware that these reward does not come easy, cuz whenever you are making important decisions there are both opportunities and risks. Frankly, I like the excitement of doing business, and I am not the kind of person who just wants to live a risk-free life, I would say I like the thrill when you make a fortune or suffer a great loss. Apart from that, by operating a restaurant, I can provide people with nice food, and hopefully I can make people happy, and they feel like as if they were dining in their own home.
6. What kind of suggestions do you have to someone who is going to visit your city.
Since I am from a coastal city in China. I would say the best time to visit is during the summer, especially June, when it is not too hot. You can bath in the sun while appreciating the beautiful scenery alone the seashore, like the blossom and palm trees and stuff. One should definitely try out the sea food like salmon, tuna and even some lobsters. Apart from that, the last thing you should miss out when visiting this nice and beautiful city is sea and water activities like snorkeling, wakeboarding and even jet skiing. You might get a little sun burnt but still worth it.
7. Which period do you think is the toughest during one's life? childhood, adolescent, or adulthood?
I would say the toughest period during one's life is adulthood. Not like the childhood, we are pursuing our degrees in universities or already doing a job to make a living. In school, we are constantly under lots of pressure, the assignments like problem sets, presentations, research papers are killing us. After graduation, we have to fulfill all kinds of responsibilities as a professional. On the other hand, being a child or an adolescent is much easier, they just have fun and do not have to worry about anything.
