Part I Writing (30 minutes)
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the importance of motivation and methods in learning. You can cite examples to illustrate your views. You should write at least 150 words not more than 200 words.
As an instructive saying has it, “motivation is the father of success”.Another saying goes that “a good method saves half of your efforts”Simple as these sayingsare, the message they convey is profound and thought-provoking. Evidently, they are meant to tell us that one should have proper motivation and methods in study.
Actually, history abounds with examples to prove these sayings. The best illustration I can come up with here is the experience of such scientists as Madame Curie and Thomas Edison.The formerdiscovered the element polonium andradium just out of her passion for science rather than money or fame. Similarly, Thomas Edison strived continuously and invented a long list of devices out of his love of science itself. On the other hand, hundreds of those who succeeded in the college entrance exams shared their methods in study, which proves the significance of methods to study.
Bringing what has been discussed into a conclusion, we may say thatproper motivation and methodsplay a critical role on our way to success in study. In a word, we should truly understand the profound meaning of the saying and try various means to find the correct proper motivation and methods.
