Failure is what often happens. It is everywhere in our life. Students may fail in exams, scientists may fail in their research work, and athletes may fail in competitions.
A real secret to success in life is to make genuine friends with people that are also passionate about going where you want to go and people who are a few steps ahead of you in life and who are where you want to be, that have already been there and done that and can help you. There is virtually no problem you can have that other people haven’t already been through, whether it’s with school, your parents or whatever.
Although failure happens to everyone, attitudes towards failure are various. Some people don’t think their failure is a very important thing at all. So they pay no attention to it. As a result, they will have the same failure a period later. Some people think themselves are fools and lose their hearts in everything after they get a failure. Consequently, they spend their time and energy on useless things and they may really be fools as they have thought.
**Embrace and be proud of who you are and where you are from **If everything is easy and handed to you on a platter – you end up with a false sense of self-entitlement. Some rich kids may get one job or opportunity because they have family connections, so they may have been given one fish, but earning it the hard way is like learning how to fish, it lasts a lifetime, and if you apply the same attitude to any area of life, you can do anything.

Other people are quite different from the two kinds of people mentioned above. Instead of being distressed and lost, they draw a lesson from every failure and become more experienced. After hard work, they will be successful in the end. It is said that failure is the mother of success. Success will be gained after times of failures so long as we are good at drawing lesson from our failures.
Think Big and aim to hit it out of the Park. Setting goals and dreams outside your comfort zone – that’s where life is lived.
In my opinion, failure is not a bad thing, the really bad thing is taking a failure as failure or even lose our heart after failure.
Be positive and focus on the things you do have. Life is not a 100%
sum game, no matter how brilliant you are, not everybody will appreciate
you, you just need to focus on the people that do. Stressing about what
you don’t have isn’t constructive, but being excited about what you do
have is. As hard working young people, you should all be really excited
as your future is going to get better and better the older you get.
Especially the gentlemen in the house – in school girls may say "NERD!"
but things change ...

Favourite Quote from Anthony Robbins - “但也有人认为这种选秀节目会养成大学生， 2015年上半年大学英语四级考试将于本周六开考。Choose, don’t react. Don’t take what’s given to you by the environment that you walk by each day. Decide precisely what you want, decide what it will take to make that happen, and make that happen.”
I’ve been really lucky to travel the world and meet lots of inspiring people and I often think, what is it that sets these people apart and makes them so successful? It’s not that they all got perfect marks …** the common factor is these people have balls**, they put themselves out there, and go for it. The people who really go places, are not so much those who are just technically talented, but those who can connect with and inspire other people .Full VIDEO, Transcript and Highlights: Awards Day Speech: Living Your Dreams, What I Wish I Knew in High School:
As a product of modern computer and the Internet, online games have become very popular among college students. A great many students have enjoyed great pleasure and satisfaction from these games. But as we see, some students lacking self-discipline are too much indulged in these games so that their health and academic performances are affected. This phenomenon has caused much worry from the teachers and parents。
However, some others argue that online games are not always harmful. They can train the ability of youngsters to respond to things quickly. Moreover, they can stimulate their imagination and their interest in computer science. More importantly, it does bring college students much pleasure and release their pressure greatly。
Nowadays,TV PK Shows (or we can call it Talent Shows) are great hit in China and have attracted many young people. As for me,TV PK Shows, as all other things, have both positive and negativeeffects. Therefore, the most crucial thing is how we see them。
From my point of view, online games are a wonderful entertainment if you play them in a reasonable way. When they interfere too much with your study, it is better for you to give them up at once. Yet if you have enough self-control over them, you can certainly obtain real pleasure and benefit a lot from them。
Some people think Talent Shows provide grass-rootpeople with a stage to display their talents, so they should seize everyopportunity to show off their talents. Some College students even give up theirstudies to attend these TV PK Shows in the hope of becoming famous overnight. Theyeven regard TV PK shows as a shortcut to the success. While other people reckonthat TV PK Shows will develop the undergraduates' attitude of anxious of achieving quick success. And once theywere failed in these shows, they would suffer a great psychological unbalance.This is really bad to their physicaland psychological health。
To sum up, everything has its limit. As long as the right attitude is employed,then it is OK。(来源：文都教育)

Extravagant Spending on College Campus
According to a survey, in recent years the monthly expenditure of a college student has been on the sharp rise. Many college students have no concept of thrift in their mind. They take it for granted that they spend money from their parents before they enter into the society. This extravagant spending is primarily caused by the following factors。
First of all, nowadays most of the students are the only children of their families. They are the apple in their family’s eyes and naturally get more care and pocket money. In addition, with the improvement of living standards, parents can afford higher expenditure of their children. Moreover, some students like to pursue fashion and trends, which tend to need more money. Finally, campus love is also a possible factor causing extravagant spending。
From my point of view, a college student, as a pure consumer, should learn to be thrifty. We should limit our expenditure on daily necessities but not buy whatever we want regardless of their prices. The habit of thrift can help us form right values and is favorable to our future development。

Attending TV PK Shows Does No Good to Young People
Nowadays, TV PK shows are great hits in China and have attracted a large number of adolescents. Some youngsters even give up their studies to attend these shows in the hope of winning their fame overnight. Some people argue that these shows provide young people more chance to show talents, while others assume that attending these shows does no good to the juvenile. As for me, I prefer to the latter opinion。
It should be admitted that some young people like Li Yuchun has stood out from the numerous attendants in the PK show, but that doesn’t mean attending the PK shows is a good way to become successful for teenagers. The following reasons can support my view. First and foremost, TV PK shows breed restlessness and induce young people to hunt after fame at whatever cost. Furthermore, TV PK shows can subvert the youngsters’ values. They cling to the idea that attending the PK shows is a shortcut to success, so they may despise the way of achieving success by hard work. Finally, if the young fail in these shows, they will suffer a psychological unbalance。
In a word, entering for TV PK shows is not a good way for young people to achieve success. I hold the opinion that young people should think twice before deciding to attend PK shows。
For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay entitled Man and Computer by commenting on the saying, “The real danger is not that the computer will begin to think like man, that man will begin to think like the computer。” You should write at least 120 words but no less than 180 words。
Man and Computer
The computer has become an indispensable part in man’s life. While it has brought great convenience to us, its rapid development has also aroused much concern about whether it will one day think like man, or even worse, whether man will think like the computer。
In my judgment, although the computer may have incredible intelligence, it is unlikely that it will take the place of man someday. Unfortunately, with the increasing reliance on the computer, there is indeed a danger that some people may think and act the same way as the computer which is programmed. They may lose the ability to think critically and reactively, and eventually develop some “programmed routine” in their behavior, neglecting the rich subtleties of human feelings。
Accordingly, while making good use of the computer, we should always bear in mind that it is only a useful tool for us, and that we should always bear in mind that it is only a useful tool for us, and that we can always think of better and more humane ways of coping with our problems。

The column chart clearly reveals the statistics of students taking part-time jobs in a certain university. According to the survey, there has been a steady increase from 67.77% to 71.93% for students holding temporary jobs from freshmen to juniors, while the percentage of seniors working part-time jumped markedly to 88.24%。
The most obvious way that having a part-time job can adversely affect students’studies is by becoming a drain on the their time. Another way that part time employment can be detrimental to students is by reducing the perceived incentive to study. Despite presenting certain pitfalls, working part-time during one’s college years also offer several potential benefits. For one, it can help students to better understand their preferences or to “test out” a possible career direction. Additionally, companies seeking to recruit recent grads will give preference to those with real-world experience。
In the end, the impact of a part-time job on student’s academic career depends on the student’s ability to maintain focus and balance his or her own time。
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay. You should start your essay with a brief description of the picture and then express your views on the importance of teamwork. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words. Write your essay on Answer Sheet 1.
As is vividly depicted in the picture, two disabled men are running fast through teamwork although each of them has only one leg. Obviously, it is teamwork that makes it possible for them to go anywhere they want to。
Simple as it is, what the picture conveys to us is thought-provoking. With the development of economy and society, competition is increasingly fierce. It is impossible for anyone to finish a work all by himself. Hence, people in mounting numbers put great emphasis on teamwork. In fact, it has been universally acknowledged that the ability of teamwork is the most essential qualification that anyone who wants to achieve success should possess。
Accordingly, it is imperative for us to take some measures to enhance the sense of teamwork in our society. We should bear in mind that teamwork is of great significance to both our society and ourselves. Everyone should have the ability of teamwork. Only in this way can we achieve success and only in this way can our society become more harmonious to live in。

The picture below illustrates the real meaning of love, by stressing the fact that love is emotional strength, which can support us no matter how dark the world around us becomes. As a matter of fact, throughout history people of many different cultures have regarded love as the most sublime of human emotions。
As an illustration of the power of love, we should remember how the Chinese people of all nationalities respond to the call to help the victims of the deadly earthquake in Sichuan Province in 2008. Although their incomes are still low by international standards, people all over the country do not hesitate to donate whatever they can——be it money or goods——to help their needy fellow citizens. Furthermore, they do this with no thought of gain for themselves。
It is my view that the best way to show love is to help people who are more unfortunate than we are. Only by doing so can we help to make the world a better place。

In recent years, Microblog and WeChat have become a kind of fashion and various people, no matter the young or the old, the famous or the ordinary, are in favor of joining in creating their own Microblogs or WeChat and visiting others. As is shown in the pictures, there are symbols of WeChat and Microblog。
In my opinion, this is the result of social development. To start with, as a convenient means of conveying information, Microblog and WeChat combine the characteristics of web pages and that of forums to enable more people to participate in problem discussion and debate. Besides, they provide modern people a platform, where friends can talk about, exchange, express the emotions and relieve stress。
Although there are a great many benefits of using Microblog and WeChat, their disadvantages should be taken into consideration. After all, using them take up time; if not handled properly, it would delay the routine work and study. Moreover, as regards communication between friends, the manner of expressing views should be polite, avoiding disputes and quarrels。

After being involved in an accident, you were looked after by Mr. Guo Jing. Write an email to express your thanks。
Dear Mr. Guo,
Exactly one month ago, I was hit by a car while I was riding my bicycle along the third ring road in Beijing。
Although I don’t remember what happened due to head injuries that occurred that day, I am told that you came to my assistance, called an ambulance, and went along to the hospital with me to make sure that I was OK. In addition to the memory loss of the day, I also had a broken rib, a broken leg, and a few broken teeth。
Thanks to your kindness and bravery, the doctors were able to treat my injuries and are hopeful that I will recover fully in no time. Without your help, I may not be here today. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude。
