While the industry of electronic game is booming by leaps and bounds with more and more people enjoying the fun it brings, some start to proclaim that it develops a smaller range of skills than the traditional games, with which I disagree, for it sounds just like another story of the backward who is intimidated by what is new.

First, let’s see what is the most possible reason we can expect from their saying. Traditional games engage more body participation and therefore, more physical training, while the modern ones do not, but is that true? With the device of latest technique, modern games could happen within a small room in virtual reality and child can really do the movement of wielding a badminton bat or even a sword anywhere, feeling it rather than just seeing it on the screen, with the sensors held in hand. In this way, you don’t have to worry that kids will sit all day dropping off their physical abilities. But modern games can do more goods with children’s skills than that. While traditional games are typically composed of a playground, a ball or some other thingies, a certain number of people and rules, modern games have manoeuvred these elements in a variety of form with sci-tech innovations and the help of other professions. Kids who are playing modern games are immersed in the vivid animation of art, the considerate interaction designs, a storytelling plot, the strategies of cooperation with other players, and way more than these. How could they be blind and deaf to these all if they are not picking up skills along the course of game.

To conclude, I think those who are clamoring, carping and blaring about children’s lack of gains from modern games are only lacked of imagination, that is, the imagination of future and the development of technologies.

Scientists advise people to lead a healthy lifestyle, but many people still continue with unhealthy activities. What are the reasons and what can we do to change the situation? 2013.12.21

参考思路身心健康”是雅思写作中最普遍的话题讨论之一,许多 题型都和身心健康有立即或间接性的联络.这一题型和“剑8-4”的题型有点儿类似,全是解析缘故和采用办法的题型,都能够从饮食搭配、健身运动和生活习惯性好多个层面来开展解析.那麼什么不身心健康的主题活动较为好写呢?实际有下列一些事例:由于工作中太忙,因此挑选了吃快餐;由于工作上一直应用电脑上,因此培养了长坐的生活习惯性,而且还欠缺锻炼身体;由于吸烟上瘾,因此明知道危害还会再次.



Living in big cities is bad for people’s health. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


有关城市生活对身心健康的伤害,大伙儿能够融合人们讲过的身心健康类语汇和空气污染类的语汇,包含air pollution,lack of sports activities,eat fast food等层面.相对来说,乡村生活代表fresh air和organic food.听说现如今的中国农户全是划到一块地来种自己吃的蔬菜水果,随后把施了化肥有机肥的水果蔬菜卖给年轻人,因此人们身体的化学元素成分非常齐备.外国人假如知道这一状况,一定会相信城市生活不利身心健康.

除开雾霾天气(smoggy weather)和食品类,城市生活还一个凶手就是说压力.尽管好像赚钱比乡村多,可是生活成本费也很高,并且沒有時间搞锻练,每日加班加点,及其拥堵挤公交这些各种各样糟心.如今的大城市,特别是在是大都市,早已越来越不环境优美了(unlivable).



Some people think news has no connection to people's lives, so it is a waste of time to read the news on the newspaper and watch television news programs. To what extent do you agree or disagree?





In many countries, the quality of life in large cities is becoming worse. What are the causes for this problem? What measures do you think should be taken to tackle this problem?



这一题型很好写,真是就是说一个社会现象的大杂会,采用的食物包含空气污染、交通阻塞、生活工作压力、生活成本费、資源紧缺、违法犯罪这些. 有关这篇范例的对接和套句,你能去读一读“剑4-4”的评委范例.有关拥堵难题的语汇,你能去读一读“剑8-3”的评委范例.

5.简单生活 vs.现代科学技术保护生态环境

Developments in science and technology have caused environmental problems. Some people think that a simpler way of life will protect the environment, while others believe that science and technology can solve environmental problems. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.



最先要搞清楚什么叫简单生活.简单生活就是说少使用高科技产品,包含电脑上、家用电器(electric appliances)和小车这些,那样就可以少耗电量,节约资源和資源,此外还可以降低废弃物(less rubbish to be dealt with).每一年我们丢掉的废弃家用电器就是说一个非常好的事例.

反方的见解觉得,高新科技才算是处理环境污染问题的办法(science and technology is the real solution to environmental problems).最先辩驳了正方见解,简单生活产生不便捷,减少了生活品质(lead to inconvenience and lower quality of life).难道说以便节电,你每日就无需电脑上不看电视剧了,仅仅去生态公园一打太极,做个深吸气?难道说以便降低环境污染,你每日骑自行车超越一个半北京城去上下班?这种全是不实际的.并且人们也是许多 事例来证实科技创新的确可以保护生态环境.依然以电器产品做事例,如今的收购技术性(recycling technology)使许多 零配件(component)都可以获得循环系统运用.


Some people think that technology makes life complex, so we should make the life simpler without using the technology. To what extent do you agree or disagree?





Many people fail to achieve a balance between work and the other parts of life. What are the causes? How can people solve this problem?





Some people think that the government has the duty to ensure that its citizens have a healthy diet, while others believe this is individuals' responsibility. Discuss both views and give your opinion. 2014.7.19


吃得身心健康和政府有关联吗?在一些國家是有关联的.例如政府会征缴“肥胖症税”(levy fat tax),含意是选购垃圾食品要多支付一些钱.爱吃零食的小朋友是否感觉很烦闷.我吃薯条关你政府啥事?

此题实际上十分磨练你的写作水平.不仅仅简易的身心健康难题,只是政府岗位职责和措施的合理化(justified)和实效性(effective)的难题.从政府视角而言,保证大家吃得身心健康能够提高大家的体质和降低社会发展的诊疗成本费(enhance people’s physical quality and reduce the medical cost of the society).举了2个事例,一个是刚刚讲的肥胖症税,还一个就是说院校的营养膳食(nutritional food),这种都能够当作是政府干涉的事例.针对那样一个题型,不举例说明是不太好写的.

另一方面,大家的饮食结构(eating habit)实际上是没办法被政府更改的.也是很多的举例论证:例如有的人买垃圾食品根本原因是工作中太忙,没空煮饭,因此政府的措施将会是失效的(futile).假如政府强制性执行一些相关法律法规(enforce some laws and regulations),那麼大家将会会埋怨政府干预了她们的生活(interfere in their lives).

依据段,实际上吃啥還是由所有人自身决策的,只不过是政府应当采用一些措施去倡导健康饮食.例如做一些公益广告视频(public service advertisements),提升大家的观念(raise the awareness of the importance of healthy eating)
