雅思写作能否用模板得高分?学员们的成绩说明，模板可保证5或5.5分甚至偶尔6分，但绝对会制约你得6.5分及以上的高分。什么是模板?大家对下面这种中国人惯用的开头段方式不会陌生吧: With the development of technology, …plays an important role in our lifeand arouses heated debate. Some people think…, others think…, I think….这就是最恶俗的制约我们得6分以上分数的开头段模板。我们对比一下考官在剑8里写的满分开头段:
Some people think that parents should teach children how to be good members of society.Others, however, believe that school is the place to learn this. Discuss both these views and giveyour own opinion.
Achild’s education has never been about learning information and basic skills only. It hasalways included teaching the next generation how to be good members of society. Therefore,this cannot be the responsibility of the parents only.
Some people prefer to spend their lives doing the same things and avoiding change. Others,however, think that change is always a good thing. Discuss both views and give your ownopinion.
Over the last half century the pace of change in the life of human beings has increasedbeyond our wildest expectations. This has been driven by technological and scientificbreakthroughs that are changing the whole way we view the world on an almost daily basis. Thismeans that change is not always a personal option, but an inescapable fact of life, and we needto constantly adapt to keep pace with it.
