51. There is a general debate on the campus today over the phenomenon of college or high school students' doing a part-time job.


52. By taking a major-related part-job, students can not only improve their academic studies, but gain important experiences they will never be able to get from the textbooks.


53. Although people’s lives have been dramatically changed over the past decades, it must be admitted that shortage of funds is still the one of the biggest problems that students nowadays have to face because tuition fees and prices of books are soaring.


54. Consequently, the extra money obtained from part-time jobs will strongly support students to continue to their study.


55. From what has been discussed above, we may safely draw a conclusion that part-time jobs can produce a far-reaching impact on students and they should be encouraged to take part-time jobs which will benefit students, their families, and even the society as a whole.


56. These days, people in growing numbers are complaining that work is more stressful and less leisurely than in the past. Many experts point out that, along with the development of the modern society, it is an inevitable result and there is no way to avoid it.


57. It is widely acknowledged that computers and other machines have become indispensable to our society, for they make our life and work more comfortable and less laborious.

人们普遍认为计算机和其它机器已经成为我们社会必不可少的一部分。 它们使我们的生活更舒适,减少了大量劳动。

58. At the same time, along with the benefits of such machines, employees must acquire relevant knowledge to control the machines.


59. No one can deny the basic fact that it is impossible for average workers to master those high-technology skills easily.


60. In the second place, there does not seem to be enough job opportunities, resulting in the rise of unemployment. 第二方面,似乎没有足够的工作岗位, 这直接导致了失业率的攀升。

61. Millions of people have to spend more time and energy on learning new skills so that they can keep a favorable position in the job market.


62. According to a recent survey, a growing number of people express a strong desire to take another job or to spend more time on their job in order to get more money to support their families.


63. From what has been discussed above, I am fully convinced that the leisure life-style is undergoing a decline with the progress of the modern society, which is not necessarily a bad thing.


64. The problem of international tourism has caused a wide public concern over the recent years.


65. Many people believe that international tourism exerts positive effects on the economic growth and the local government should be encouraged to promote international tourism.


66. But what these people fail to see is that international tourism may bring about disastrous impacts on the environment and the local culture.


67. As for me, I'm firmly convinced that the number of foreign tourists should be limited for the following reasons.


68. In addition, in order to attract tourists, a lot of new facilities have been built, which has certain unfavorable effects on the environment.


69. For lack of a distinct culture, some places will be attractive to tourists any more. Consequently, the fast rise in the number of foreign tourists may eventually lead to the shrinking of the local tourism.


70. There is a growing tendency for parents to expect their children to be involved in some extra educational programs over the recent years.


71. This phenomenon has caused a wide public concern in many places of the world.


72. Many parents believe that additional educational activities enjoy obvious advantages. By extra studies, they maintain, their children are able to obtain some practical skills and useful knowledge, which will put them in a favorable position in the job market when they grow up.


73. In the first place, extra studies bring about unfavorable impacts on the physical growth of the children. Educational experts point out that, it is equally important to take some sports activities instead of studies after the children have spent a whole day in the classroom.


74. Children are undergoing fast physical development; lack of physical exercise may have disastrous influences on their later life.


75. In the second place, from psychological aspect, the majority of children seem to be of no interest in additional educational activities.


76. It is hard to imagine how they feel to be forced to focus on the textbooks while other children are playing.


77. Moreover, children will have less time to play and communicate with their peers due to extra studies; consequently, it is difficult for them to develop their characters and interpersonal skills. They may become more solitary and even suffer from certain mental illness.


78. From what has been discussed above, we may safely draw the conclusion that, although extra studies indeed enjoy many obvious advantages, its disadvantages shouldn't be ignored and far outweigh its advantages. It is not wise to force children to take extra studies after school.


79. Any parents should place considerable emphasis on their children to keep the balance between studying and playing. As an old saying goes: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.


80. These days, a growing number of mothers or fathers prefer to stay at home looking after their children instead of returning to work earlier.


81. Parents are firmly convinced that sending their children to kindergartens or nursery schools will have unfavorable influences on the growth of the children.


82. However, this idea is now being questioned by more and more experts who point out that it is not good for children to stay with their parents at home all the time.


83. Although parents would be able to devote much more time and energy to their children, it must be admitted that parents have little experience and knowledge on how to educate and supervise the children when compared with teachers working in kindergartens or nursery schools.


84. From what has been discussed above, we may safely draw a conclusion that, although the parents' desire to look after the children by themselves is understandable, the disadvantages of this practice far outweigh the advantages.


85. Parents should be encouraged to send their children to nursery schools, which will bring about profound impacts on children and families, and even the society as a whole.


86. Many government officers always go into raptures at the mere mention of artistic and cultural projects. They are forever talking about the nice parks, the smart sculptures in the central areas of the city and the art galleries with rarities. Nothing, they maintain, is more essential than such projects in the development of a city.


87. But is it really the case? The information I've collected over years makes me believe that artistic and cultural projects may be less useful than many people think. In fact, basic infrastructure projects are playing extremely important roles and should be given the priority.


88. Those who are in favor of artistic and cultural projects advocate that better cultural environment will attract more tourists, which will bring huge profits to the local residents. Some people even equate such projects with the improvement of the economic situation.


89. Unfortunately, there is little evidence showing that big companies are willing to invest huge sums of money in a place without sufficient basic projects, such as the supply of electricity and water.


90. From what has been discussed above, it would be reasonable to believe that basic projects play far more important roles than artistic and cultural projects in people's lives and the economic growth.


91. Those urban planners who are blind to this point will pay a heavy price which they cannot afford.


92. There is a growing tendency these days for many people living in rural areas to come and work in cities. This problem has caused a wide public concern in most cities all over the world. 农民进城打工正成为增长的趋势,这一问题在世界上大部分城市已引起普遍关注。

93. An investigation shows that many migrant workers think that working in the cities provides them with not only a higher salary but the opportunity to learn new skills.


94. It must be noted that the improvement in agriculture doesn’t seem be able to catch up with the increase in the population of the rural areas and there are millions of peasants who still lead a miserable life.


95. Although migrant workers contribute greatly to the economic growth of the cities, they may inevitably bring about many negative impacts.


96. Many sociologists point out that migrant workers are making things from bad to worse: putting more pressure on the population control and the security of the society, threatening to take the few jobs from the job seekers in the city, and worsening the traffic and public health problems.


97. It is suggested that governments ought to make efforts to reduce the increasing gap between cities and countryside. They ought to set aside an appropriate fund for the improvement of the standard of peasants' lives. Besides, they ought to invite some experts in agriculture to share their experiences, information and knowledge with peasants, which will contribute directly to the economic growth of the rural areas.


98. In conclusion, we must think about this problem rationally and place more emphases on peasants' lives. Any government that is blind to this point will pay a heavy price.


99. Although many experts from universities and institutes consistently maintain that it is an inevitable part of an independent life, parents in growing numbers begin to realize that people, including teachers and experts in education, should pay considerable attention to this problem.


100. As for me, I think it is essential to know, at first, the problems young students would be faced with on the campus.
