1)Do you enjoy reading?
2)What kind of books do you like?
3)Do you like going to museums?
4)Were you interested in history when you were young?
5)When did you read a book about history last time?
1)Yes obviously. Although I describe myself as a sociable person, I also enjoy reading, since reading is the thing that can help me calm down and
2)I prefer detective stories like Holmes. I find it really exciting to let myself sink in the world of inference and I always dream about having a friend like Watson, who can accompany me to work out numerous problems.
3)Yes I do. Visiting places like museums provides me with the chance to know about history and things about our ancestors, I believe it is an educative place for people of all ages to visit.
4)When I was young, my parents told me a lot of the historic stories of China and also other countries, at that time I thought history the subject is also about listening to the stories so I looked forward to learning the subject very much. But later when I actually learn about it, I found that there are also boring issues and things like the impact of the movement, the background of the new policy for me to memorize, so gradually I lost my interest.
5)I am not a fan of history, so to be honest, the last time I read a book about history is the vacation that I was in senior high school, which is a task given by my history teacher. I found it really boring to read history, although it offers me with the opportunity to learn about things in the past and make me more experienced.
1)What’s the most important part of your major?
2)What’s the most interesting part of your major?
3)Which one is more important, the teacher or the student?
4)Is what you have studied closely related to your ideal job in the future?/ Do you think it (your subject) will be helpful for you in the future?
5)What can you learn from these courses?
6)Are there any differences before and after studying these courses? What are they?
1)My major is marketing, and for me the most important thing is to understand customers’ needs and wants to serve them and co-operate with the R&D department to produce goods to satisfy their needs, and this is also difficult since sometimes customers themselves do not know what they actually need .
2)My favorite course is microeconomics, since it is amazing for it to explain so many phenomenons and issues with its theories, ranging from business activities, prisoner's dilemma, to daily activities. And it also enables the students to rethink about the things happening around themselves and give them the explanation in terms of economics.
3)Both of the two are important. For teachers, it is important for them to shoulder the responsibilities to try to make every student understand the knowledge they have taught, and for students, it is their task to respond to the teachers and spare every effort to work hard and get good results.
4)I do not think so. Since I have done some internship before, and what I found is that sometimes marketing is much more than using the theories and models I learned from class, it is more related to connecting the company and the customers, it is a thing that needs the help of the whole company.
5)I learned about various models, formulas, theories, and different solutions to problem that may happen in the marketing process. It is of some use when companies really do marketing, but what needed to be learn is much more than these theories. To learn marketing well, one always have to make real actions.
6)Well, marketing is a major that everyone knows something about it. The biggest difference before and after I study the courses is that I become more rational about the sales in the supermarket since I know they are all marketing, and also I think my knowledge network becomes clearer.
1)Do you have friends far away?
2)Do you keep contact with your childhood friends? Why?
3)Do you consider yourself as a good friend?
1)Yes, she is one of my best friends in the university. We knew each other in our university life, and then we went to different countries for study and work. Now, she lives in America and I work in Shanghai. The distance between us is pretty far, but we still try to find some time to contact with each other.
2)Unfortunately, I don’t do so. This is mainly because we both have different social circles as we grew up, and we had fewer and fewer common topics. Now, it is embarrassing for us to have an afternoon tea with each other.
3)I think so, because as a friend, I’m willing to listen to my friend’s complaints and doubts, and then I would like to give some advices for her. In addition, I will try to find some helpful things to do to upgrade ourselves. For example, my friend and I have set a goal for cultivating the exercise habit. We do pump it up three times a week in the dormitory, and we have keep this for nearly half a year.
1)Which one do you prefer, pen or pencil?
2)Which one do you used to use, pen or pencil?
3)How do you feel if someone gives you a pen or pencil?
4)When did you buy a pen or pencil last time?
1)I prefer using pencils now. I used to write with a pen in my high school, but I find it is more convenient to use pencils. If I write something wrong, it is easier to change when I write in pencil.
2)As I have said before, I used to use pen in my high school. High school students are required to use pen in exams, so our teachers ask us to write our homework and tests in pen so that we can adapt to do so in the exam.
3)In my childhood, it should be a nice and pleasant gift for me because I liked collecting different pens and pencils, especially those pretty ones. But now, I couldn’t say it is a surprising gift because I don’t use them very often and I’m not a person enjoy writing. Instead, I’m used to typing on my laptop.
4)I’m not sure the exact date, but it may be two months ago. As I’m a university student, I still have to use pens and pencils regularly, although most of our homework are required to be submitted in digital versions. And two months ago, I just experienced my mid-term exams, so I had to use pens in my exam. I remember in case of not enough pens, I bought some that time.

4)Yes, they should know more about science because it makes them explore the world in a deeper way and adapt themselves to this ever changing society.
5)Well, it really depends on whether the lessons are difficult or not. Like if they are easy to understand and practical in daily life, I am ok with them. But if they are super complicated and beyond my comprehension, then I am not into them.
6)I have done plenty of researches in astronomy since I’m quite interested in star observation. Using telescopes to watch sky is one of my favorite things, which really delights me when exploring the unknown world.
7)Yes, science definitely plays a vital role in the world evolution and human development, which is penetrated in every sector of people’s daily life.

Without science, the whole nature and human beings will be haunted by darkness and chaos.

1)Do you like art?
2)Do you often go to gallery?
3)Do you hang any pictures in your room?
1)Well, it really depends on what kind of art it is, like if it’s realism painting that’s quite impressive, and I am able to comprehend it, then I’m fond of it, but if it’s something beyond my understanding, then I’m not into it.
2)I go to art gallery every now and then, like twice a month, if I am not caught up with work, then I will go there with my friends to unwind myself, but if I am quite busy, then I won’t go.
3)Yes, I do. I’m the type of person who is interested in colorful things so that I hang a copy of Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings in my room to light up my mood.

5)I don’t think so. More traffic tools have been invented to facilitate people’s daily life recently, for example, the self-balance bike and electric bicycle. People can save the walking time to do some other things.

2)I’m a girl who really like to laugh, so I think last time I laugh should be yesterday. I was watching a talking show program yesterday night, and there were some jokes in the show which make me laugh out of tears. Even now I think of them, I still find it was funny.

3)One of my habits is baking, and usually I do it when I’m alone. And every time I do baking, I hope no one would disturb me. Focusing on it makes me feel relaxed and peace.

I had peers to play together and my grandparents cooked yummy dishes. Most importantly, I didn’t have to do homework that time.
