  Talk about two singers or musicians and the differences between them. Include examples and details in your response.

  Well, I would like to talk about Bob Dylan and Avril. Bob Dylan can write very poetic lyrics, actually he is the Nobel Prize laureate for literature in 2016. and his songs are generally folklore, which are very peaceful and quiet. When I listen to his music, I feel like I can concentrate better and follow my heart. However, Randy Rhoad is a rock star, his songs are very catchy but they are very disturbing, Lots of his heavy metal music focuses on thrashing guitars, frantic drumming and insane lyrics.

  Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Artists and musicians are important to the society.

  Personally, I would say artists and musicians play a very important role in our community. First off, people nowadays are inundated with heavy workloads, regardless what kind of job they have, actually, they need to switch off from their work and take some time to appreciate art and music, like watching a movie, or going to see a musical, and that'll will help them to relax and calm down, and even to refresh their mood. Additionally, the work by artists and musicians have enormous monetary value, like the masterpiece of Beethoven, the paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci, not only are they great assets to the country where it originated, but also are invaluable treasure for the whole human race.

  Describe your least favorite music. Please explain the reason.

  Well, actually, this is a very interesting question and I haven't really thought about it before. Frankly I am kind of into all kinds of music, but if I have to answer this question. I would say Heavy Metal is my least favorite type of music. You know, most metal music focuses on thrashing guitars, frantic drumming and insane lyrics. For me, the only reason to listen to music is to get away from my busy life and study and get a chance to switch off, unfortunately, heavy metal is just doing the opposite.

  Some people believe that the high school should teach music and art as other basic science. Some people think that providing music and art education for high school students is not necessary. What is your opinion and why?

  Personally, I think high school students should learn art and music. Actually, it can be very rewarding to learn some art, like kids will understand how to appreciate delicate artwork, such as, porcelain vase, water color painting, sculpture. Plus, art is the expression of the humanity. Without it, we would have no hope, no aspirations, no joy, just nothing meaningful and enlightening, and one can never underestimate the value of art and music, actually, If you try any form of art, you will get a break from the stresses of life, work and study!

  5

  Do you agree or disagree with the statement: employees should be prohibited to listen to music at work.

  Well, personally, I think it's a very bad idea to prohibit music in workplace. Actually, listening to music is a very good way for people to release their negative emotions, like sadness, or sorrow, or even anger. Employees might forget about the pressure in life and thus have a higher efficiency in the workplace. Additionally, music keeps people refreshed and spurs creativity and innovation. So, that is why it is a common practice for high-tech to allow the play of music in their office, just so that they can create a relaxing environment and be more creative, and thus make more breakthroughs in their field.

  6

  Describe the book you like the most when you were a child.

  Well, the book I like best when I was a child was the Sea And the Old Man, authored by Ernest Hemingway. It was a novel, and it is very educating and enlightening, I learned a lot from reading this book. The storyline is like this:the old man had not landed any fish in 84 days in a row, finally on the 85th day he landed marlin, unfortunately, on his way back home, he marlin was towed away by some sharks. Even though, he only got back the bones of the marlin, however, he was really the winner; never give up in face of hardships, setbacks, barriers in our lives.
