TOEFLの最難関はSPEAKINGです。SPEAKINGで30点を取ることが一番難しい。RLWでの30点はブログを探せばたくさんの人が獲得済みです。しかし、SPEAKINGの30点は私の調査範囲では数人です。何とかSPEAKINGで28点、29点を常時取れるように、運が良ければ30点取れるような状態に持っていきたいです。現状では、Q1Q2で確実に4点もらえるように、作文を貯金します。

Test 6

When you purchase clothes, where do you prefer to go?

I prefer to purchase my clothes at a shopping mall.
I will supply two reasons to corroborate my contention.

First, the shopping mall near my house has at least twenty shops for clothing. If I do not find any particular item at a store, I can always go to other stores to search for it.

Secondly, I can do comparison-shopping at the shopping mall. To illustrate, last week I went shopping for a shirt. At one store, the price was 35 dollars. Then, I went to another store to find the same item for 25 dollars.

For these reasons, I prefer to purchase my clothes at a shopping mall.
------------------------------------------------------
Which is better, reading the newspaper every day or once a week?

I am convinced that it is better to read a newspaper every day rather than once a week. I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, I subscribe to a local newspaper and read it every day to keep up with what is happening in my community. As the electronic version is not available, reading the newspaper is the only way to learn the local news.

Second, I like to read the editorial every day. The editor of this local newspaper carries an interesting article. It is my daily routine to read the editorial over a cup of coffee.

For these reasons, I am convinced it is better to read newspapers daily.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Where do you usually do your shopping?

I usually do my shopping at a local shopping mall.
I will supply two reasons to corroborate my contention.

First, the shopping mall near my house has so many stores. If I do not find any particular item at a store, I can always go to other stores to search for it.

Secondly, I can do comparison-shopping at the shopping mall. To illustrate, last week I went shopping for a shirt. At one store, the price was 35 dollars. Then, I went to another store to find the same item for 25 dollars.

For these reasons, I usually do my shopping at the local shopping mall.
------------------------------------------------
What kind of a shopper are you?

I would characterize myself as a bargain shopper. I will present two examples to corroborate my assertion.

First, I tend to go shopping when all goods are on sale. After-Christmas sales are my favorite ones, and I purchase tons of items in this period.

Secondly, as we have five teenage children, my wife and I cannot afford purchasing high price items. For example, purchasing five pairs of Nike sneakers, each of which costs 100 bucks, is out of the question.

For these reasons, I am a bargain shopper.
-------------------------------------------------------
It is important to be aware of current events in one’s country.

I am fully convinced that it is important to be aware of current events in my country. I will present one good reason to corroborate my assertion.

I am an active online stock trader. My typical day starts with reading newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and New York Times. Then I watch morning news programs of CNN, ABC, and NBC. Based on the current information, I will make decisions as to which stocks to buy, sell, or keep.

For this reason, it is extremely important for me to be aware of current events.
-----------------------------------------------------
Young people do not know enough about current events these days.

I am convinced that young people do know enough about current events. I have one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

My daughter is an active online stock trader. She reads the Wall Street Journal, watches CNN financial news, and subscribe to the Fortune magazine. Based on the current information, she makes decisions as to which stocks to buy, sell, or keep. She knows about current events much better than I do.

For this reason, I believe that young people do know enough about current events.
