“外研社杯”全国英语写作大赛“模拟赛场”

第一期竞赛题目

 

写作题一:议论文写作Argumentative Writing)(10分)

Read the following two paragraphs which present contradicting views. Write a passage about the issue, clearly stating your opinion and explaining your reasons. You should write about 500 words.

 

Social networking sites have many advantages. You can find long lost friends, make new friends, interact with them, and find out about various places and their culture whilst sitting at your desk. These sites also help you to spread information and to advertise at a minimum cost. Perhaps chief among the “pros” of social networking sites is the ability for “average” people to learn about others with whom they may share crucial information and develop business and personal friendships. In fact, these sites offer everything to facilitate your online social life.

However, to many people, social networking sites bring more dangers and risks than advantages. The most glaring disadvantage is the risk of identity theft and fraud. The personal information of users can be used for illegal activities. Some dishonest people would pretend to be someone else and put false information on their online profiles. If you do not know a person face to face, it will be very difficult to know if you are being cheated. Also, there are increasingly cases of malicious (恶意的) actions in which false information, lies, personal details and even adapted photographs are spread on the Internet without permission and causing extreme embarrassment. 

 

写作题二:说明文写作(Expository Writing)(10分)

Write a passage to explain the Chinese CCTV Spring Festival Gala (春节联欢晚会) to foreigners. You should write about 500 words.
