If l am away from home for a year, I will feel very lonely. If l can call my parents, I will hear familiar voices and I will not feel so lonely. Calling my friends will also help me feel better.

I have never been away from home by myself, so there are many things I don’t know how to do. I don’t know how to open a bank account, cook, or drive a car. With my cell phone, I can call my parents to ask for help with cooking dinner, for example. I can ask them for any advice I might need.

Sometimes, I may just want to speak my own language. I can call my friends on my cell phone and tell them about my new life. This will make them jealous of me. I can call them a lot and tell them about all the wonderful things I am doing.

For me a cell phone is a necessity. On my trip I will need it when I feel lonely, when I need advice, and when I want to talk with friends. Of course, the phone bill will be sent to my parents.

It is sometimes said that borrowing money from a friend can harm or damage the friendship. Do you agree? Why or why not? Use reasons and specific examples to explain your answer.

Sample Essay

It is not a good idea to borrow money from a friend. It is not fair to the friend. It is hard for a friend to say no, to admit that she doesn’t have enough money, or to ask for her money back when she needs it.

If you ask a friend for money, it is hard for her to say no. She may do many favors for you easily, but she still might feel uncomfortable about lending money. However, she doesn’t want to be rude to you. If you ask her for money, she feels like she has to lend it. This puts her in an unfair position.

Your friend may not be able to admit that she doesn’t have enough money. She may be embarrassed to tell you this. Or maybe she just doesn’t want to disappoint you. She lends you the money, then she doesn’t have enough for herself.

Your friend may feel awkward about asking for her money back. If some time passes before you repay the loan, the friend may feel embarrassed to ask you for it. Maybe she needs it, or maybe she just wants to know what is going on. But she also doesn’t want to put pressure on you or make you angry. It is a difficult position to be in.

People all have different ideas about money and it can cause a lot of problems. It is better to borrow money from people you don’t know well, such as bankers. Then, if necessary, you can have problems with them, and maintain good relationships with your friends.

Every generation of people is different in important ways. How is your generation different from your parents' generation? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your answer.

Sample Essay

The one thing that makes the difference between my parents' generation and my own is modern technology. When my parents were growing up, they had TV, radio, and cars, but they didn’t have the amount of technology we have now. They didn’t have personal computers, they didn’t have satellite TV, and they didn’t have cell phones.

My parents didn’t grow up which computers, but I did. They have a computer now, but they don’t use it as I do. I write all my schoolwork and keep all my files on the computer. My parents still like to use paper. I do all my research and get all my news off the Internet. My parents still use newspapers and TV. Because of computers, I am accustomed to having more access to information than my parents are. I am used to doing more work more efficiently. It is a completely different way of living.

My parents had only local TV when they were young, but I have satellite TV. I grew up seeing programs from all over the world. I am used to seeing foreign movies and cartoons. I have some ideas about things in foreign countries and a lot of interest in them. Satellite TV exposes me to things that have opened up my mind. My parents didn’t have the same opportunity when they were young.

Cell phones are common now, but they didn’t exist when my parents were young. They didn’t even have answering machines or voice mail. They couldn’t talk to people at any time or leave messages easily. I can do this. Right now it is a fun part of my social life. When I have a job it will be more important. I will be able to contact people easily and that will make my work more efficient. Cell phones have made a big difference in the way we work.

Modern technology has made a big difference in the way we work, in our understanding of the world, and in the expectations we have of friends and colleagues. It has completely changed the way we live. The world of my generation is a different place than it was for my parents' generation.


TOEFL iBT作文范文-175

Some students like classes where teachers lecture (do all of the talking) in class. Other students prefer classes where the students do some of the talking. Which type of class do you prefer? Give specific reasons and details to support your choice.

Sample Essay

In my country, the lecture system is the most common system. It is the one I prefer for three reasons: I am used to it, it is an efficient system, and I am too shy to talk in class.

My classes have always been lecture classes. I am used to listening to the teacher talk. We students sit quietly at our desks and take notes. We never ask questions because we don’t want to seem stupid. At the end of the course, we take a rest. If we can repeat on the test what the teacher said in class, we get a good grade.

The lecture system is an efficient one. The teacher is the one who knows the subject, not the students. It is a waste of time listening to a student’s ideas. What good will that do me? Time is short. I want the teacher to give me as much information as possible during the class period.

Even if we could talk in class, I would never open my mouth. I am much too shy. I don’t want other students to laugh at me and make fun of my ideas, I prefer to listen to the lecture and memorize the teacher's ideas.

I hope I can always study at a school where they use the lecture system. I like it because I am used to it. I also want to learn information in the most efficient manner possible, and I don’t want to interrupt a teacher with my foolish questions.
