In the cartoon, we can see one student is surfing the Internet, attempting to plagiarize from the Internet while the other student is persuading him to copy from books. The sarcastic picture reveals that heavy reliance on Internet have seriously affected the way people read and write.
Despite the convenience Internet brought to us, it is undeniable that it lays negative influences on our reading and writing. As regards reading, few people nowadays prefer reading conventional books which allow us to be more engaged in the contents and thus get the deep reading experience. More people choose to do the often superficial reading on the Web, which reduces our attention span and makes us incapable of reading anything of length or requiring deep concentration. When it comes to writing, the easy access to reading resources will makes us slide into thinking without independence and even copying others’ compositions. In addition, writing via the internet makes typing rather than writing by hand rank first and gradually drives our writing skill out of practice.
From my perspective, the bad effect of the Internet can be largely alleviated when we make the most of the reading and writing resources the Internet provides and sticking to reading and writing with our heart and head.

You should start your essay with a brief description of the picture and then express your views on the importance of developing skills to judge the quality of online information in the digital age. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
There’s a couple in the picture, in which the man is telling his wife not to believe what is said online while this valuable advice is just from an online article he just read. The picture points out a sarcastic dilemma that everyone of us are facing today, that is, our increasing reliance on Internet news and our lack of judgment on those news.
It brings us to rethink the tragedy that a college student Wei, who trusted the fake doctor showed online, missed the chance to save his life. So much fake information are there online, some of which are posted for cheating money and others are to spread the panic out of thin air, that it’s of great importance to learn to judge the quality of that, in case we would lose money and even something more valuable. There’ re also articles online showing wrong values and inappropriate opinions that may confuse us, misleading us to make a wrong choice.
In all, almost everyone has easy access to writing articles online and that’s why we have to rationally judge the quality of information, taking the good and discarding the bad.

Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay on the following question. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
As most people spend a major part of adult Life at the place of work, job satisfaction is an important part of individual well-being. What are the factors that contribute to job satisfaction? Are all the expectations for job satisfaction realistic?
The factors which contribute to job satisfaction, in my perspective, are no more than two main aspects—salary and the prospects of career development.
Firstly, the priority should go to salary. Why do we go to work? The most important reason must be money. It’s no denial that everyone wants to live a better life. So it’s ideal that our salary can match well with our effort and our contribution to the corporation. Secondly, the prospect of career development is equally important. When young graduates look for a job, they may consider the room for future development as one of the crucial elements. As far as they are concerned, salary is just temporary while the potentiality of the job is a long-term investment. And there are also some other expectations to job satisfaction, such as a harmonious working atmosphere, a mild boss, competent colleagues and so on.
But sometimes you will find that not all the job expectations are realistic. For example, not all your colleagues are as intelligent and cooperative as you are. When one encounters such cases, it’s better to adjust himself/herself, prepare for the worst, and work utmost for the best.
contribute to 指奉献，名词为contribution, 后面也跟to。prospect指前景，spect在英语中是表示“看”的词根，如retrospect、 inspect，pro表示向前的前缀，放在一起表示前景。priority指优先项，常用搭配为the priority goes to sth.。ideal 表示理想的，这里和下文指出的并非所有的职业期待都是现实可行的形成对比。类似，表示暂时的temporary和a long-term investment也形成一组对比。encounter表示遭遇，遇到。
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay on learning to appreciate others by commenting on the remark, “When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself.” You can cite examples to illustrate your point. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
To me, “When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself” is always the case. If you learn from others rather than envy them, you will realize your own shortages and merrily perfect yourself.
Though childish, I deem my crush began at junior school, and it was inevitable to hate my “rival in love”, a pretty girl with plenty of chasers. I never communicated with her, yet sometimes spoke ill of her. After entering high school, passion faded and soon I forgot that boy. That girl, however, became my classmate. It was she that talked to me first with a lovely smile. I witnessed the way she behaved, and her manners explained why she was that popular. I felt glad to be a friend of her, from whom I learned about getting along with and appreciating others. Now, whenever I am praised for being considerate, humorous or cute, I would think of her, the one who makes me appreciate and ameliorate myself.
Only when you appreciate others can you enhance yourself, and only when you enhance yourself will you find the good in yourself.
sth. is always the case表示的确如此。deem表示认为。crush表示一见钟情、迷恋，迷恋某人用have a crush on sb.，另一个形近词为crash表示坠毁、打碎。inevitable指不可避免的，反义词为evitable。rival in love表示情敌。speak ill of sb. 说某人的坏话。passion fade表示激情退去，fade还可以用来表示褪色。appreciate and ameliorate 意为欣赏和完善，这里用到了头韵的修辞方法，在六级作文中如果能使用头韵，将会使文采倍增。

From the picture we can see a piece of megaphone-like advertisement paper, through which a little pig is magnified into a giant elephant. The sarcastic picture criticizes the phenomenon that many advertisements exaggerate the effectiveness and quality of the targeted products.
There is nothing wrong for a corporation to adopt florid description of their products for drawing customers’ attention. The problem, however, is that sometimes the boundary between “florid” and “fraudulent” is ambiguous. With professional knowledge of marketing, advertising designers love to take advantage of law blind spot and play tricks. In other words, even if someone finds out he is fooled and complains, the company would have sufficient excuses to argue that the customer is the one to blame for his carelessness and ignorance.
Professional ethics is fading, yet we shall never forget to distinguish rightness and wickedness. For companies, it is their obligation to provide qualified products with appropriate propaganda. For customers, it is also necessary to be discreet before purchase.
megaphone-like是指像扩音器一样的，mega是一个表示巨大无比的前缀。magnify指放大。florid description表示绚丽多姿的描述。boundary表示界限。fraudulent在这里和前文的florid形成对比，florid者表示绚丽的，fraudulent则表示欺骗的、虚假的。ambiguous是ambiguity的形容词，表示模棱两可。law blind spot意为法律的盲点。ignorance意为无知，形容词为ignorant， 要和innocent区别开来，后者表示无辜、单纯的。professional ethics是职业道德的表达。distinguish表示甄别、辨别。 discreet 指谨慎的，考虑周到的。
