托福范文:电视对沟通的影响

  【题目】

  Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television has destroyed communication among friends and family. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

  【范文】The Effects of Television on Communication

  There is no doubt that television has greatly changed people's lives. After its invention, it became an almost indispensable part of most households within the space of just a few years. Nowadays, many families have two or even three television sets so that every member of the family can watch what he wants whenever he wants. In my opinion, this has significantly reduced the amount of time that family and friends spend communicating with each other.

  Before the invention of television, people spent their leisure time in more active and social pursuits. They often played cards or other games, listened to the radio together or went out to see friends. But now television is widely available and it offers a variety of program choices that appeal to almost every interest. People no longer have to look to others for entertainment. Also, television can be like a sedative. Studies have shown that watching a great deal of television makes people more passive. Finally, people are simply watching increasing amounts of television. And with two or three TV sets in the house, there is no need for them to even watch it together.

  Although television has reduced the amount of time that family and friends spend together, it doesn't have to be this way. People can make the choice to turn off the TV and do something more active. Or, if they really want to watch TV, they can find a thought-provoking program that they would all like to watch and discuss afterwards.

  【参考译文】电视对沟通的影响

  电视已经大大地改变了人们的生活,这一点是毋庸置疑的。电视在其发明后的短短几年内几乎成为大多数家庭中不可或缺的一部分。现在许多家庭拥有两台甚至三台电视机,每个家庭成员随时可以看自己想看的节目。我认为这样已使得家人和朋友之间沟通的时间大为减少。

  在电视发明之前,人们有空就会做一些比较积极的消遣,并进行社交活动。人们会经常玩扑克牌或其他游戏,一起听收音机或出去拜访朋友。但是现在电视很普及,有各式各样的节目可供选择,几乎能让每个人都很感兴趣,于是人们便不再寻求其他的娱乐。而且,电视就好像镇静剂一样。有研究指出,观看大量的电视节目会让人变得比较消极。最后,人们看电视的时间变得越来越多,而且有两台或三台电视机的家庭,其家人甚至都不在一起看电视。

  虽然电视已使家人和朋友之间相聚的时间变少,但这并非是必然的结果。人们可以选择关上电视,去从事一些更积极的活动。或者如果真的想看电视,也可以找一个大家都想看的思考性节目,看完之后可以一起讨论。

  【注释】

  indispensable adj.不可或缺的  significantly adv.相当大地

  pursuit n.工作;消遣   thought-provoking adj.发人深省的

托福范文:媒体不宜过度去关注名人

  「题目」

  Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television, newspapers, magazines, and other media pay too much attention to the personal lives of famous people such as public figures and celebrities. Use specific reasons and details to explain your opinion.

  「范文」  The Media and Famous People

  In almost every form of media, including television, newspapers and magazines, a great deal of attention is paid to the personal lives of celebrities. It seems that the public cannot get enough of this kind of news. However, I believe that the media have a responsibility to present a balanced view of the world, as well as respect the lives of public figures. Therefore, I believe that the media pay too much attention to the personal lives of famous people.

  For people who are fascinated with the lives of public figures there are some forms of media devoted exclusively to this topic. They can satisfy their curiosity by buying fan magazines and watching TV shows devoted to entertainment news. The general media should present all types of information because people have different interests. Furthermore, the practice of dwelling on the private lives of celebrities can lead people to pay more attention to these matters than they otherwise would. Perhaps most importantly, the media should respect the privacy of every individual, including public figures. They may have chosen to be in the public eye, but that does not give the public the right to know everything about them. Moreover, many stories about celebrities are untrue; they are only gossip reported to increase sales of magazines and other media. They are unfair to the famous and mislead the public.

  For all of these reasons, I believe that the media should pay more attention to matters other than the private lives of public figures. In this way, they can appeal to a wider audience and encourage people to develop other interests. In my opinion, the media currently pay too much attention to the private lives of public figures.

  「译文」

  几乎每一种媒体,包括电视、报纸和杂志,都把许多焦点放在名人的私生活上。一般大众似乎对这种新闻一直很感兴趣。然而,我认为媒体有责任以公正无偏袒的观点报导时事,以及尊重公众人物的生活。因此,我认为媒体的确过度关注名人的私生活。

  因为有些人对于公众人物的私生活十分着迷,所以有些媒体就专做这个主题。通过购买针对歌迷或影迷所发行的杂志和观看电视节目的娱乐新闻,就能满足这些歌迷或影迷的好奇心。一般媒体应该提供所有类型的资讯,因为人们的兴趣各不相同。此外,老是强调名人的私生活,会使人们比平常更注意这些事情。或许最重要的是,媒体应该尊重个人的隐私,包括公众人物的隐私。他们可能选择公开露面或上传播媒体,但那并不表示大众有权知道他们的一切。此外,许多关于名人的报导并不真实;那些报导只不过是被用来增加杂志销售量以及其他媒体业绩的八卦传闻。那些不实的报导不仅对名人不公平,也会误导大众。

  基于这些理由,我认为媒体应该多注意公众人物私生活以外的事情。如此一来,媒体就能吸引更广大的受众群,并且鼓励人们培养其他的兴趣。依我之见,目前的媒体的确过度关注公众人物及他们的私生活。

  Staying in One Place

  【题目】

  Some people spend their entire lives in one place. Others move a number of times throughout their lives, looking for a better job, house, community, or even climate. Which do you prefer: staying in one place or moving in search of another place? Use reasons and specific examples to support your opinion.

  【范文】

  Staying in One Place

  It is often said that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Perhaps this is why some people frequently move around, looking for better jobs, houses, and so on. No doubt it is possible to make some advances in this way, but I believe that staying in one place and putting down roots in a community also has many advantages. That is why I would prefer to spend my life in one place rather than constantly move around in search of a new home.

  One advantage of spending a lifetime in the same community is that people can put down roots and enjoy long relationships with their friends and neighbors. As these relationships mature, the neighbors will come to trust and depend on each other more. In such a community, one never needs to worry when in trouble; someone is bound to give a hand. Another advantage is that people who live their lives in the same community care more about the neighborhood and work hard to improve it. This creates a nicer place for everyone to live. Finally, while we should never stop trying to improve ourselves, it is sometimes better to appreciate the advantages we already have than constantly seek more. A person who is always seeking will never be content.

  In brief, I would prefer to have a permanent home in one community rather than constantly uproot myself and my family in search of something better. I believe that when we care about the place where we live we can always find a way to improve it and ourselves. In the future I will remember to appreciate the grass on my side of the fence.

  一直住在同一个地方

  【译文】

  32.一直住在同一个地方

  人们常说,邻家芳草绿,隔岸风景好。或许这就是有些人会经常到处搬家,寻找更好的工作或住所等的原因。这样做无疑可能会有所改善,但我认为,待在一个地方、在某个社区落地生根也有很多优点。这就是为什么我宁愿一辈子住在同一个地方,而不愿不断地搬来搬去寻找新家的原因。

  一辈子住在同一个社区的一个优点是可以落地生根,享有和朋友、邻居之间长久的关系。当这些关系成熟时,邻居之间会更加互相信任、互相依赖。在这样一个社区中,有困难时也不必担心,因为一定有人会愿意伸出援助之手。另一个好处是,永久居住在同一个社区中,我们会更关心住家附近的环境,并努力加以改善,这样便能创造更好的居住环境。最后,虽然我们应该不停地努力自我改进,但有时候,欣赏我们自己已经有的优点胜过不断地追求更多优点。一个一直在追寻的人是永远不会满足的。

  简言之,我宁愿在一个社区里建立永远的家,而不愿为了寻求更好的地方,带着自己和家人不断地搬家。我相信,当我们关心自己居住的地方时,我们总能找到改善住家和自己的方法。将来我会记得欣赏自己家里的草。

TWE写作范文6

  If you could change one important thing about your hometown, what would you change? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer.

  If I could change one thing about my hometown, I think it would be the fact that there's no sense of community here. People don't feel connected, they don't look out for each other, and they don't get to know their neighbors.

  People come and go a lot here. They change jobs requently and move on. This means that they don't put down roots in the community. They don't join community organizations and they're not willing to get involved in trying to improve the quality of life. If someone has a petition to put in a new streetlight, she has a very hard time getting a lot of people to sign.

  They don't feel it has anything to do with them. They on't get involved in improving the schools because they don't think the quality of education is important to their lives. They don't see the connection between themselves  and the rest of their community.

  People don't try to support others around them. They don't keep a friendly eyes on their children, or check in on older folks if they don't see them for a few days. They're not aware when people around them may be going through a hard time. For example, they may not know if a neighbor loses a loved one. There's not a lot of community support for individuals.

  Neighbors don't get to know each other. Again, this is because people come and go within a few years. So when neighbors go on vacation, no one is keeping an eye on their house. No one is making sure nothing suspicious is going on there, like lights in the middle of the night. When neighbors' children are cutting across someone's lawn on their bikes, there's no friendly way of casually mentioning the problem. People immediately act as if it's a major property disagreement.

  My hometown is a nice place to live in many ways, but it would be much nice if we had that sense of community.
