Part V Writing (15 points) Directions: You are to write in 100-120words words about the topice“To Work or Study Further.”You should base your composition on the outline given in Chinese below: 有人认为中学毕业后能找到工作，就没必要上大学。有人认为为了今后有更好的发展，有必 要上大学。你的观点是什么？并陈述你的理由。 Should High School Guaduates Go to Work or Go to College As for the issue of finding a job or going to college, there are two points of view. Some people hold that it is better to find a job after high school. Other think that attending a college can bring about a brighter future. The advocates in favor of the first view think that it is not necessary to attend a college if the high school graduates can find a job. First, the cost of going to colleges can be a heavy burden for some families. Second, if high school graduate can find a job, he can become independent earlier. Moreover, what he can learn form the society will be far more than that from classroom. However, others would prefer going to colleges because they think college education can help young people create better life. First, college education can provide young people training for professions, such as law, business, medicine, engineering and so on. Attending college can help young people find better jobs. Second, it prepares young people a life-time fulfillment. University education will encourage young people to seek for truth, to inherit human civilization and to build
social justice. Therefore , attending college is necessary for young people’s brighter future. As for me, I strongly support the latter view. The arguments for not going to colleges can not hold. Money is not the problem because you can borrow it form the bank. You can not find a satisfying job without going to college. You can still learn from the society after graduation from college. Finally, you can not afford to miss the merits of college education.
