Test 9
Why is it good for a person to take a year off before entering college?

Hi.
I am convinced that a person should take a year off before entering college.
I will present one good reason to substantiate this assertion.

Before entering college, I visited about 40 different countries, mostly underdeveloped nations in Asia and Africa. I met many children who could not go to school because of the war and the poverty. This experience totally changed my attitude. When I entered a college, I felt how fortunate I was and I was strongly motivated to study.

For this reason, I am convinced that a person should take a year off before entering college.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.
----------------------------------------------------------
Do you prefer to take easy courses or difficult courses?

Hi.
I am convinced that I prefer to take difficult courses.
I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.
I have an engineering degree from an American University. As I was a foreign student, my tuition was 7000 dollars per semester. My goal was to learn. I wanted to get my money’s worth out of college. I took many difficult courses. Though my GPA had to suffer a little bit, it was well worth each and every penny spent.

For this reason, I am convinced that I prefer to take difficult courses.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.
-----------------------------------------------------
What would you like to do in your free time?

Hi.
As my job requires me to travel extensively, when I am home, I want to help my wife and kids as much as possible.
I do most of house chores including cleaning, laundry, shopping groceries, helping kid’s homework, you name it.
My wife loves my help. Besides, these chores release my stresses.

So, I want to spend quality time with my family in my free time..

Thanks for listening and have a great day.

What is the best way for a person to improve his or her life?

Hi.
I am convinced that a person should travel to foreign countries to improve his or her life.
I will present one good reason to substantiate this assertion.

Before entering college, I visited about 40 different countries, mostly underdeveloped nations in Asia and Africa. I met many children who could not go to school because of the war and the poverty. This experience totally changed my attitude. When I entered a college, I felt how fortunate I was and I was strongly motivated to study.

For this reason, I am convinced that a person should travel to foreign countries to improve his or her life.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.
--------------------------------------------------
Which would you prefer to take, an art class or a music class?
Hi.
I prefer to take a music class.
I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, I like singing. In high school, I belonged to a chorus club and our group won the first prize in a local competition.

Secondly, I enjoy listening to classical music. Particularly, my favorite piece is Hungarian Rhapsodies No.12 in C sharp minor composed by Franz Liszt, a Hungarian pianist and composer. This piece is so relaxing that I feel completely rejuvenated after listening to this piece.

For these reasons, I prefer to take a music class.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
It is a waste of time for university students to take courses in subjects other than their majors. Agree or disagree?

Hi.
I am convinced that students should not take courses in subjects other than their majors. I will present one good reason to substantiate my assertion.

I have an engineering degree. To graduate, I had to take many courses such as literature, art, and history, which had nothing to do with my major. As I had no interests in such subjects, I was completely bored in the classes. To be honest, it was a waste of time. I should have taken more interesting subjects such as astronomy, biology, and geology, which are more closely related with my major.

Thanks for listening and have a great day.
