1. Is it important to have good manners?
Of course, it’s very important. First of all, you only have seconds to make a good impression. We meet thousands of people in our lives and most meetings are brief and superficial, so not everyone is as patient as your parents. A decent haircut, clean face and good manners will be noticed and have a significant effect on your life. Secondly, as the writer of “the game of throne” puts it, courtesies are women’s best weapons. Even if you have done something wrong, if you appear gracious and grateful, much will be forgiven, just like Sansa in the TV series, although her father and brother are regarded as traitors, she never forget her manners and is spared by her enemies. So having good manners is important, and in some cases it can help you enormously.
2. Talk about a way that helps you to relax. Explain why this helps you to relax.
Playing volleyball helps me to relax. First of all, it’s a way to let off steam by striking the ball vigorously. I can not only ease my mind after playing it but can also gain energy from doing sport. It really motivated me a lot. What’s more, I have opportunities to meet people who all have the same hobby, which is playing volleyball, and talk to them, get to know them. Making friends and talking to them is a way for me to relax myself. All in all, playing volleyball brings me a refreshed feeling.
3. A friend of yours wants to change his or her diet habit, what suggestions would you give to his friend?
Firstly, I will suggest her to cook food herself. In this way you can cook some really healthy food without being influenced by others. I mean, if you always eat with your friend, it’s very hard to get rid of bad habits, like you have every intention in the world of ordering the chicken salad, but when you hear your friend order the grilled pork or creamy pasta, it’s easy to forget your plan and just follow your friends. Secondly, I would suggest her to eat vegetables in her plate first, so when it comes to meat, she is almost full and thus consumes less meat.
4. Talk about an object, tool, or piece of equipment that you depend on in your daily life. Explain how it makes your life easier.
I depend on my Smartphone in my daily life and it has made my life a lot easier because all the information and apps I need for work and social life are in my Smartphone. For example, I don’t use an alarm clock in the morning because there’s an app for that in my phone. Once I leave my apartment, I use the GPS in my phone to navigate the route with the least traffic to my office. If I’m stuck in the traffic，I can start checking for important emails from clients or colleagues in my car or even make some phone calls to get some problems solved before I，m actually in the office. After work, I use instant messengers on my phone to connect with friends. Without my Smartphone, everything in life would be time consuming and complicated.
