1.上大学的费用（tuition and fees）可以通过多种途径解决
Several years ago new tuition fee policy was put into practice and college students were asked to pay a certain sum of money.And now,all the students,no matter what subjects they are engaged in,must pay for tuition.
There are many ways for a student to finance his college education.Most students ask their parents to pay the tuition fee and pay for their books,accommodation and other cost.A student can also apply for the scholarship.Most universities set up scholarship to offer money to the poor students who do well in entrance exams and reward those who do well in entrance exams and reward those who work well at university.A student can also apply for the low-interest loans.In addition to the above,taking part-time jobs is also a common way for a college student to get money to pay part of his tuition and fees.
So far as I’m concerned,I’d prefer earning the scholarship.This means I must study hard and be a top student,which has always been my goal.After all,the task of a student is to study.And in addition to solving my financial problems,getting the scholarship can also prove my ability and is good for my future.

Is a Test of Spoken English Necessary?
A test of spoken English will be included as an optional component of the College English Test(CET).
A test of spoken English will be included as an optional(component of the College English Test(CET).Some people contend that it is absolutely necessary to hold a test of spoken English in China because we have been told many times that a Chinese student who has been learning English for years cannot communicate with a native English speaker.Sometimes even those top students who excel at grammar and writing skills find their English inadequate to express their thoughts freely when speaking.A test of spoken English will bring the importance of speaking English to the awareness of the college students,and thus help them with their communicating skills.
On the other hand,there are also people who maintain that good reading and writing skills would be enough for the average English learners.College students are already under considerable pressure from their coursework.Another required test will only add to their burden.Also,some students may take the shortcut and only practice the questions according to the fixed format of the test,which will not actually improve their spoken English.
I believe that a test of spoken English will do more good than harm.Since China will continue its policy of opening and reform,the ability to speak fluent English is a must for anyone who wants to surpass others in a highly competitive society.Whether I take the test or not,I shall make all efforts to practice my spoken English in the rest years in college.
