Have you ever cooked?
Of course, and I’ve learned how to cook when I was a high school girl. Since then, I always cook for myself when my parents are busy.
Do you like cooking?
Yes, I’m really into cooking, and I think it’s an effective way to balance our diet and keep healthy. Recently I usually do some cooking during the weekends to enjoy healthy food with my parents.
Do you want to learn how to cook?
Not really, because I’ve already a master of cooking. As I’ve mentioned, I learned how to make fine food since I was little. So I’m quite confident about myself.
Is it difficult to cook Chinese food for you?
It’s hard to say, because there’re many kinds of Chinese cuisines as I know, such as Sichuan cuisine, Hangzhou cuisine and so on. As I was born and raised in Hefei, I’m only familiar with cooking our local food, which means the rest might be relatively difficult for me.
Part 2 & 3
Describe an interesting job that you want to have in the future.
You should say:
What it is
How you can find this job
What qualities it requires
And explain why it is an interesting job.
The interesting job that I want to have in the future is being a teacher, to be more specific, an English teacher, which generally tends to be one of the most essential and indispensable occupations in people’s life.
If I want to get this job, there’re must be several things I need to do before. First, a teacher’s license is essential, because it can definitely prove I can teach and I know how to teach. Then, a good resume is also significant for the job hunting, since it’s the only way to demonstrate yourself to the employers before you get a real interview.
Sure, I know, if I want to be an English teacher, it can never be an easy process. There’re many requirements in terms of English proficiency, teaching ability, personality and so on. In particular, English teachers are required to have excellent pronunciation and clear voice. As a leading role of an English class, teachers are usually followed by students who tend to imitate their teachers’ pronunciation and even the way of speaking. Besides, patience is also necessary. As we all know, language acquisition is a long-term process, so English teachers must be patient even if they have to repeat the same sentence for a million times.
Personally, many reasons make me believe that teaching English is an interesting job. Firstly, it is a possible way to get the sense of fulfillment. It must be great to see my own students make progress in English learning. Besides, the teaching process should also be interesting. Since students vary from person to person, which means teaching methods should meet their aptitude, and I think I’ll enjoy this challenging process.
Eg：She was becoming indispensable to him.
Eg：Don't push for an interview on the spot, but rather explain that you want to let them know of your interest, drop off your resume, and complete an application while you're there if possible.
Eg：How can we attain fulfillment in this world?
Eg：Have you tried the new method?
1. What kinds of preparation should people do for a job interview?
I think a good resume is very important, since it’s a direct and effective way to demonstrate yourself to the employees. Besides, a clear voice and creative thinking are also required.
Eg: The project looks at how we could be more effective in encouraging students to enter teacher training.
Eg: According to traditions, the selectmen are required by law to perambulate the bounds every five years.
2. Why do some people keep changing their jobs?
It depends, some people quit for overloaded. The excessive workload pushes them to change jobs. However, some may make a change for their clear career plans. For them, changing job is only the way to achieve their ends.
Eg: He quit his job as an office boy.
Eg: 57 percent complained of work overload.
3. What should a good employer do?
A good employer should help to build an employee-friendly environment, with various programmes from regular physical examination to mental care.
Eg: The methods are many and various.
Eg: I think you are mentally tired.
4. How would you define “an interesting job”?
I think an interesting job will give people a sense of fulfilment. That means you may feel exhausted sometimes, but you can still obtain job satisfaction.
Eg: She was too exhausted and distressed to talk about the tragedy.
Eg: She felt a small glow of satisfaction.

题目：The diagram shows how an office building looks at present and the plan for its future development.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.
The diagrams shows the current layout of an office building and some future changes to it. Overall, the most important change is that the working area will be enlarged to achieve high utilization of the building.
It can be clearly seen that at present, there are two pieces of lawn bedded on both sides of the building. The workplace is small with only four office rooms standing one by one in the south part. At the opposite side of the offices, some ancillary facilities such as a kitchen, canteen and a stock room can be found. The entrance and the WC are located at southeast corner, which may be inconvenient for the staff who work at the westernmost office.
In the future, the two grass lands will be converted into supporting facilities required by a workplace. Specifically, the western one will be rebuilt into an outside activity area, while the other will be turned into a place with a coffee bar and a WC at the north and a meeting area at the south. The original kitchen and canteen in the north are planned to be made into two office rooms. The entrance with reception will be relocated to the middle of two office rooms in the south.

题目：In many countries women are allowed to take maternity leave from their jobs during the first month after the birth of their babies. Do the advantages outweigh disadvantages?
As the gender gap narrows, more females are wielding their power in the office. However, some new problems arises when it comes to the women’s traditional role as mothers. One of the most frequently debated issue is about the merits and demerits of maternity leave.
Some people believe a one-month period of rest brings benefits to both the newborns and mothers. Females need time to recover from a delivery, and babies ought to be meticulously attended to especially during the first few weeks. Besides, corporates will gain loyalty from their employees as the flexible working schedule makes those who take the leave feel they are respected and valued. So when mothers return to the workplace, they will engage in the career with high working morale and a satisfying health condition, which will for sure increase the productivity.
Nevertheless, there are some negative effects if the maternity leave is taken without clear regulations. Some women on maternity leave may get fired after a long period of vacancy, because their positions are substituted with someone else. Worse still, some corporates will not consider the candidates with pregnancy plans, thus causing a gender discrimination when hiring employees. That being the case, it is still regarded short-sighted to dismiss the female workers who take or will take maternity leave, since an experienced employee can bring more profits and inspire her colleagues to achieve more.
In conclusion, a maternity leave with reasonable length of time not only ensures a low rate of newborn mortality and sequel illness for mothers, but also improves employees’ productivity, morale and retention, all of which weighs heavier than the cost paid by companies during the period.
