Q1Q2ですが、無理して二つ理由を述べる必要はないのではないかという気がしてきました。45秒はあまりにも短く、一つの理由をゆっくり説明したほうが、説得力のあるスピーチになると思う。次回、試してみたい。

Test7

What are the necessary factors to having a good school?

I am convinced that supportive teachers and a good library are two important factors to a good school.

First, a good school must have caring and supportive teachers. To illustrate, Mr. Hashimoto, my English teacher in high school, was a very caring teacher. Thanks to his assistance, I won the first prize in a speech competition.

Secondly, a good school must have a good library. To be specific, the library of my university was open 24hours a day and 7 days a week. I virtually lived in the library for 6 months to write my master thesis.

In summary, supportive teachers and a good library are two important factors to a good school.

Parents are the best teachers for children. Agree or disagree?

Hi.
I am convinced that parents are the best teachers for children. I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, it was my parents who taught me how to crawl, how to stand, how to walk and how to speak. Therefore, I have to agree that they were my best teachers in my childhood.
Secondly, my parents taught me many practical things. For example, my father taught me how to fix a flat tire, while my mother toughed me how to bake my favorite apple pies.

For these reasons, I am definitely convinced that my parents are the best teachers for me.
Thanks.

What was the best aspect of the last school you attended?

The best aspect of my last school was operating a nuclear reactor.

I have a BS in the nuclear engineering. My university had a small experimental nuclear reactor. While I hated those theoretical nuclear physics courses, I really enjoyed one course to operate this reactor. As I pulled out the control rods, the reactor reached criticality and started the nuclear chain reaction. It was such an exciting experience to me.

Therefore, the best aspect of my last school was operating the nuclear reactor.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
What do you believe that schools in your country need to do in order to improve?
Hello.
I believe universities in my country need to have libraries open 24 hours a day and 7days a week.

I have an engineering degree from a university in the US. My university had a library open 24 hours a day and 7days a week during the entire semester. This helped me tremendously, because in the last semester I had to write a thesis. I virtually lived in the library for 3 months to complete my thesis.

Therefore, I believe universities in my country need to have libraries open 24 hours a day and 7days a week.
Thank you very much for listening.

Parents need to spend more time with their children.

I am convinced that parents need to spend more time with their children.
I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

According to a survey, on average, parents spend 49 minutes with their children every day.
This is attributed to parents who have to work long hours to make ends meet.
Children need to feel that they are unconditionally loved by their parents. In 49 minutes per day, though it is difficult to convey such love.

Therefore, I am convinced that parents need to spend more time with their children.
Thank you very much for listening.

Parents should be involved in deciding where their children go to college.

Hi.
I am convinced that parents should be involved in deciding where their children go to college.
I have one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

Assuming that parents pay all tuition and expenses, they should be involved in the decision-making.
My wife and I asked my daughter to attend a local state university, as we could not afford to send her to a private school. We explained our financial situations to her, and she accepted our proposal.

For this reason, I am convinced that parents should be involved in deciding where their children go to college.
Thank you for listening.
