Lots of people select these commodities to present as gifts to bosses, friends or relatives at festivals. This phenomenon, which resulted by several factors, arouses hot discussions among people. One of these reasons is the psychology of extravagance-showing among people of all ranks. They tend to feel inferior if their presents look common and simple. On the other hand, lots of merchants, out of the consideration of their commercial profits, use all their efforts to promote their goods, which need to be luxuriously packaged as to meet the demands of market. Last but not the least, some people select these over packaging commodities to please their bosses in order to get a promotion. Overall, this phenomenon is an outcome of the market economy. It can promote the development of economy, but, at the same time, leads to the corruption of social morality. We should take all measures to reduce the production of these commodities as to control social environment. 2012． 12 英语四级 1、 Education Pay What is shown in the chart above is that those people with high degree earn more than those with lower. For example, staff with master’s degree receive a better payment than those with bachelor’s degree, according to a survey of the payment to the employee. These survey indicates that education degree does have a relationship with earnings, contrary to the recent theory of useless education. Recently, there is a heated discussion about the significance of the education. Some people hold a view that higher education is useless since college education cannot mesh with the social needs. Some think that higher education is indispensable if you want to go far in both your studies and life. Now that survey has proved which part is wiser. As for me, I definitely support the view that education is necessary for people’s life. Reading can not only make me survive well in this society with fierce competition but also help me make sense of life. I pursue for it for my whole life. 2、 四级范文： Education pays As is shown above, the bar chart clearly demonstrates the relationship between the education level and earning in 2010. It is obvious that well-educated persons such as owning Doctoral degree and Master s degree have a high salary than those who have relatively low degree. Isolated as the figure seems to be, as a matter of fact, we can observe that the higher level of education you receive, the higher income you get. People’s opinions about investment in education differ from person to person. Some people say that knowledge could no longer change destiny. To them, it is not only a waste of money, but also a waste of time. Others deem that education is worthy of investment. As for me it is no doubt that education offers favorable working opportunity and handsome income, which enable us to buy what we want ,please what we love, and fulfill what we dream, and correspondingly we are able to build an ideal paradise where life can be enjoyed to the uttermost. In conclusion, we should realize significance of education, which plays a crucial role in personal growth of career. In addition, it is convinced that education is the prospect of a nation. 3、 四级作文范文： Education Pays From the chart above, we can definitely get a conclusion that the more you learned, the higher your salary would be. The figures in the chart denied the claim that knowledge is useless. However quite a few people still hold the opinion that a higher education does no good to a better job since that there are many university students who can not get an ideal job. What I want to point out is that there is more than one factor that contributes to the failure of finding an ideal job for those who got a higher education. While those who failed to get a better education will hardly succeed in getting a good job because they didn’t get the knowledge systematically and scientifically. As the proverb goes like this, Knowledge is power. Education pays, sooner or later. 4、 Education Pays, published every three years, presents detailed evidence of the private and public benefits of higher education. It also sheds light on the distribution of these benefits by examining both the increases and the persistent disparities in college participation and completion. In the three years between the publication of Education Pays 2007 and Education Pays 2010, median earnings for four-year college graduates increased more rapidly than those of high school graduates and the gap between the unemployment rates of the two groups grew. In addition to earnings comparisons, the report documents differences in lifestyles, health, and other outcomes for people with and without college education. Differences in enrollment and completion patterns across demographic groups highlight the reality that gaps in educational attainment are explained by a combination of money and other factors。 小虹翻译：教育回报，每隔三年发布一次。它显示了高等教育所能带来的私人和公共利益的详细的证据。同时，通过考查大学入学与毕业方面的增长和长 期的差异，它也阐明了由高等教育带来的这些利益的分布状况。在 2007 年和 2009 年教育回报发布后的中间三年，受过四年大学教育的高校毕业生的平均收入 的增长要快于高中毕业生，并且，这两者间的失业率的差距也加大了。除了收入对比之外，这份报告也显示了是否拥有大学学历给人们的生活方式，健康和其他因素 造成的差异。人群的教育入学和教育完成模式 (是否上大学、是否大学顺利毕业 )的差异强调了 一个事实，那就是，教育程度的不同所带来的差距，是可以通过收入 和其他多种因素来解释的。 2011 年 6 月英语四级 Part I Writing (30 minutes) Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled Online Shoping. You should write at least 120 words following the outline given below: 1. 现在网上购物已成为一种时尚 2. 网上购物有很多好处，但也有不少问题 3. 我的建议 【参考范文】 One of the controversial issues today is online shopping. According to a recent survey， a large number of consumers are in favor of online shopping as it has become a trend. In this essay, I will discuss the positive and negative effects of this issue and offer my own view on it. On the positive aspect, one of the most significant advantages is that online shopping brings customers so much convenience that it is widely recognized as much more time-saving than traditional shopping. Moreover, online customers have access to commodities of such a huge variety and number. Perhaps the primary advantage is that they have the opportunities to compare prices of a product offered by different retailers. On the negative aspect, there is a good chance of buying a defective product, as they cannot examine the quality when shopping online. What’s more, there exist some dishonest and incredible online retailers who may do further damages to buyers’ interests. As far as I’m concerned, the benefits of online shopping greatly outweigh its drawbacks. People should make better use of shopping and bypass its negative effects. People can never be too careful when shopping online. 2011 年 12 月英语试卷 Part I Writing 作文题目： Where There Is a Will There Is a Way Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay on the topic of Where There Is a Will There Is a Way. You should write at least 120 words following the outline given below: Where There Is a Will There Is a Way 1．坚强的意志是成功的重要保证。 2．意志坚定的人才能完成伟大的使命， 3．学生也是这样，不刻苦学习， 才用。 【参考范文】 Nothing Succeeds Without a Strong Will “ Where there is a will, there is way” is an old proverb which almost everyone knows, but not all understand it so well. Actually, it means that if you are really resolved to do something, no matter how difficult it might be, never give up. In fact, strong will is a kind of good quality which successful people should own. A great man is always one who has a firm resolution and an inflexible spirit. One will never succeed all his life without a firm will to get the final victory. As a rule, great tasks are accomplished by men of strong will. For example, Dr. Sun Yatsen, the founder of the Republic of China, set the Chinese people free from the Manchurian rule through a long period of hard struggle. Many of his attempts failed and many of his followers were killed, but he had an inflexible spirit and stuck to his cause. Finally, he made the revolution of 1911 a success. The same is true of men in all walks of life. It is quite obvious that there is nothing difficult in the world, if you make up your mind to do it, you will certainly accomplish your end. That stands to reason. So as for students like us, we should have a good attitude towards failure. Facing with difficulties and failures, keep heads up and never give up. Besides, we should make full preparation, though strong will help us overcome the difficulties, it is not for person who has no preparation.
