Financial Disparity: Not a Barrier for Friendship

    With the development of market economy in China arise the income gaps between people woking in different fields: some earn good money(赚大钱); some make ends meet(收支平衡); some others live on narrow means. On top of many social problems this financial disparity may cause, there is a claim that it affects friendship. The assumption seems reasonable, but we may find it does not really hold water(合理) by taking a close look into the subject.

    First of all, true and lasting friendship is built on common values, pursuits, or hobbies rather than similar incomes. Friends are those who agree with your life views and stick to the same principles, those who encourage you when you lack confidence in meeting challenges and pursuing your dream, or those who share your interests and appreciate your tastes. Indeed, what strengthens the emotional bonds between you and your pals is not the same amount of wealth but spiritual commonalities. Of course, with similar financial backgrounds, you will probably know better about each other's life style, but the difference in this aspect will not matter if you are mutually appreciated, needed and trusted. The friendship between Marx and Engels--the two German revolutionists--is a case in point(恰当的例子). The former was often in debt while the later was well-off; yet the same socialist dream drew them together and made them forever friends.

    Moreover, financial disparity between friends does not cause trouble because each of them usually lives a self-reliant life. Different from a married couple who have common properties, budget and spend their income together, even very close friends live on their own finances. For instance, though we exchange ideas with and confide secrets to our friends, we will never rely on them for a comfortable life, no matter how rich they are. Admittedly, there are times when we may go out for fun or to dinner together with friends; however, whether they are richer or poorer than us, we can definitely find a place suitable for all rather than one beyond somebody's means.

    It is claimed that people with different financial backgrounds have different social contacts and accordingly, as friends, will get estranged sooner or later. It is true in some cases, but bosom friends(知己) are not those who you get in touch with everyday; instead, they are those who lend their hands to you when you fall into trouble, just as the old saying goes, a friend in need is friend indeed. Hence, despite their distinct material life, the richer and the poorer can retain their friendship as long as they still care about each other, understand and support each other.(反驳法: 先摆出反观点,再借助转折句式予以反击)

    To sum up, financial disparity will not affect friendship when people have common spiritual pursuits, lead an independent life and stand by each other for better or worse(无论好坏). It might be quite safe to say that money is not the barrier but the touchstone of real friendship.

 

  专八考试发卷收卷流程

        每年的考试流程都基本不变!

  现将往年的考试流程详细报告,希望对今后的考生有所帮助。

  A.8:15进考场 准考证上写的是8:15,所以我早早地就到了上外的综合楼,但是一直要到8:10左右才把我们给放进去,然后就是到自己的考场,有老师检查准考证,身份证,学生证(毕业的学生是毕业证)。

  B.正式考试 发草稿纸,试卷,答题卡

  1.听力 总35min

  a.MINI-LECTURE 老师开始放录音,就在草稿纸上做笔记,等放音完毕,发LECTURE试卷(ANSWER SHEET ONE),答题,10min后收卷

  b.INTERVIEW

  c.NEWS BRODCAST

  那里有耳机的,在正式考试前,老师会放音让同学都检查一下耳机的效果,有疑问及时提出。个人觉得听力速度没有平时磁带放得那么快,10min的填写时间很充分,可以把b.c两部分的题目都看个仔细。速度快的考生,也可以抓紧做后面的阅读。

  2.阅读 30min 时间很紧,平时要多做练习,提高阅读的速度。

  3.人文知识 10min 这部分时间还是挺宽裕的,所以有时间可以看看后面的翻译,作文题,做到心中有数。

  第二次收卷,收答题卡

  发改错试卷(ANSWER SHEET TWO)

  4.改错 15min 挺晕的题型,我是做完了一身冷汗,觉得真是越改越错,这个要想提高还是要靠长期积累。时间挺长,但是改不出什么来,所以还是再多看看后面的翻译,作文题。

  第三次收卷,收改错试卷(ANSWER SHEET TWO)

  发翻译答题纸(ANSWER SHEET THREE)

  5.翻译 60min 有了前面的两次铺垫,做起来会觉得顺手许多,翻吧,尽可能的翻吧。

  第四次收卷,收翻译答题纸(ANSWER SHEET THREE)

  发作文答题纸(ANSWER SHEET FOUR)

  6.作文 45min 时间很紧,所以之前的几次预看很有必要,至少在心理上已经不那么陌生,可以很快的进入状态,用3-5min列个提纲,就开始写吧,别管写的好不好,总之,笔别闲着,要写400字任务还是很艰巨的啊。

  第五次收卷,也是最后一次了,收作文答题纸(ANSWER SHEET FOUR),草稿纸,试卷。

  Tips:

  1.8:15进场,对大多数考生也就意味着7点左右就要起床了,建议前一天早点睡觉,保证充足的睡眠,这时候再熬夜,可是事倍功半了。

  2.考试时间很长,从8:15进场,到11:50左右出考场,绝对考验人的耐力,可以备上红牛/咖啡/巧克力以补充体力。

  3.精神集中+放松:既要保持放松的心情,又要有比较兴奋的备战状态。

  最后,爱思英语网祝各位考生好运!!
