Should College Students Own Private Cars?

专八范文:

Private cars, often regarded as luxury goods, arereported to have been bought by many collegestudents orby their parents as birthday gifts in therecent. This phenomenon can also find itsexpression in the driver’s license rush for manycollege students. During summer or winter vacation,sometimes even on weekends,many college studentswould attend driving courses. Though learning to drive can give college graduates acutting edgein job market, I do not think it is necessary for college students to own private cars in thisparticular episode of lives.

私家车,人们通常把它叫做奢侈品,据报道,许多大学生购买私家车,或是家长送给学生的生日礼物。如今,大学生扎堆考驾照,这也能够说明这种现象。在寒暑假,甚至是在周末,大学生就会去参加驾校课程。大学生学车,这对于他们找工作是很有好处的,但是,我认为大学生没有必要购买私家车,特别是在这样的年龄段。

Firstly, according to some news coverage, the majority of private cars owned by collegestudents are purchased by their parents instead of by themselves. Of course, there are somewealthy families that can easilyafford private cars, but it does nothing to change the fact thatcollege students rely on their parents for tuition fees and living expenditure. In terms ofpersonal growth, owning private cars bought by parents do not help college students cherishthe value of self-reliance. Some educationalists worry that in the long run those students tendto become lazy, which is harmful to college students’improvement.

第一,根据新闻报道,大学生购买的私家车都是父母给学生购买的,而不是自己购买的。当然,有一些富裕的家庭能够买得起私家车,但是这却改变不了大学生的学习都是父母提供的学费和生活费。就个人发展来说,家长为学生购买的私家车不会帮助学生意识到自力更生的价值。许多教育学家担心从长远来讲学生会变得更为懒惰,这对于学生的发展不利。

Secondly, private cars are not basic necessities without which college students can not carrythrough their pursuit of higher degrees. Both professors and college students can figure outthe underlying reason forsome students owning private cars is to show off. As I havementioned above, the majority of college students still depend on their parents for tuition feesand living expenditure, but owning private cars contribute nothing to showing off their ownpersonal highlight. In actuality, we do admire that those private carowners have wealthyparents, but at the bottom of our heart we severely detest those classmates. We can easily findout that showing off indicates the very insecurity and lack of confidence in studies andpersonal cultivation.Furthermore, as some college students are still yet to be mature, they caneasily become jealous. For those immature students, they are more likely to form the beliefthat the society is unfair.

第二,私家车并不是必需品,拥有这些,学生就不能够追寻更好的学习。老师和学生了解到学生拥有私家车的原因就是为了炫耀。就像我上述所说,绝大部分的大学生还要依靠父母来支付学费和生活费,但是拥有私家车并不能够让他们炫耀资本。无可否认的是,这些拥有私家车的学生家庭富裕,但是凭心而论,我非常看不起他们。我们很容易看到炫耀其实是缺乏安全感、自信、个人成就的一种表现。而且,学生还没有表现得非常成熟,他们会很容易嫉妒别人。对于这些不成熟的学生,他们很有可能认为社会是不公平的。

In conclusion, as college students can not provide for themselves, how can they dare to asktheir parents to buy cars for them? Owning private cars only indicates inner insecurity and lackof confidence for thosestudents, and arouses jealousy among peers. Therefore, I think it isunwise to own private cars for college students.

总结,因为学生无法自食其力,他们又为什么能向父母索要汽车呢?学生驾驶私家车只能证明他们缺乏安全感,缺乏自信,这会使得学生之间产生嫉妒心。所以,我认为学生购买私家车是不明智的。
