People in Taipei like to go to badminton courts because one of our national players won the world championship. Take myself as an example. When I was in college, I participated in the badminton team. After graduation, I play badminton with my friends on the weekend. We can not only relax ourselves but also chat with each other. That’s the reason why I think that people in Taipei like to go to badminton courts.
I think that students benefit more in smaller classes. First, as there are fewer students, teachers can pay more attention to each student. In this way, teachers are more likely to provide suggestions or assistance to students. Second, with smaller classes, students can discuss the problems they have or reading materials with other students. In this way, students may have better academic performance. That’s the reason why I think so.
The writer proposes that the university should close the coffee house. However, the woman in the conversation opposes the writer’s proposal. First, the woman likes the coffee house. For example, she can prepare for an exam at the coffee house. Second, the writer argues that the food at the coffee house is not good. However, the woman indicates that the new manager has made some improvement on the food. In this way, the food is not only delicious but also healthy. That’s the reason why the woman in the conversation opposes the writer’s proposal.
The professor takes macaws as an example illustrate the concept of flagship species. Macaws live in rain forests and have beautiful feathers. However, as more and more trees have been cut down from rain forests, the population of macaws and other species started to decline. Therefore, some people started to distribute the books about macaws. Many people responded to the project and donated money to set up a protective land. As a result, the population of macaws and other species started to increase. This is the example provided by the professor to illustrate the concept of flagship species.
The woman in the conversation is going to move to her new apartment. However, there is no internet connection in her apartment. Therefore, she has to decide whether she should ask someone to install the internet service or she should use the computer in the computer center. I suggest that she should use the computer in the computer center. In this way, she does not have to worry that she has to spend extra money hiring someone to install the internet service. However, she has to go the computer center whenever she needs to use a computer even though she thinks that the computer center is crowded. These are the suggestions I would like to give to solve the problem mentioned in the conversation.
The professor uses examples to illustrate the two types of narrators. The first type is an objective narrator. For example, a woman and man are going on a trip. As an objective narrator, readers will only know what they say and what they do. However, readers do not know how they feel. On the other hand, as an omniscient narrator, readers not only know what happened but also know how they feel. For example, the man is nervous because he does not know whether his friends will like his wife or not. These are the examples provided by the professor to illustrate the two types of narrators.
