4. What kind of activities do you take part in during your free time?
Many students may feel that college life is boring. They do not know how to deal with plenty of spare time. But I think the college life will become wonderful as long as we make it meaningful. In fact, we can do all kinds of activities which we are interested in. Do not be nervous.
(1) In my spare time, I often do sports. Doing sports can enhance our physical (mental) development. It can keep fit and make us staying in health. I’ll learn some self-defense skills from it. By doing sports, I also learn how to communicate and interact with others.
I like running. It is exciting. I feel close to nature when running .And it shows what upper limit human physique can reach after finishing a full running.
Sometimes, I often play basketball, football, badminton table tennis, and so on. You know, table tennis is very popular activity on campus. It is a national sport. Not only do students like it, but many teachers like it. Playing table tennis can train my brain, especially my eyes . After studying for a long time, My eyes are tied and hurt. So it is good choice to play table tennis with my classmates for relaxing ourselves.
I’m a big basketball fan, even though I’m not good at playing basketball myself. I like Yao Ming, so I love to watch the NBA on TV whenever I get a chance.
(2) In my free time, I often surf on the internet. With the development of computers throughout the world, more and more people have access to the Internet. I know it has disadvantage to spend too much time using it. But I just use it to get a lot of information by browsing different websites.
In fact, the Internet has changed our conventional ways for work, communication, entertainment and expression. Apart from using the Internet for professional purposes, I also use it to communicate with families and friends by sending and receiving e-mails, talking with others and playing games such bridge or chess with partners or opponents they don’t see. I also use the BBS to express my opinions in ways otherwise impossible.
In general, spending too much time surfing on the interest is not good to a person. We should have a right attitude to it and make use of it correctly for our study.
Studying in college is a brand new start of our life. We can continue to study hard for the better scores. If we want to show our talents and skills we can join in all kinds of activities. By so , we can have a wonderful college life!
5. Is it necessary for students to take part in the social activity during the free time?
Everybody knows that study is one of the most important things for the young people, and a lot of people think that young men should study everyday to get a good score. But I do not agree with such an idea, my opinion is that the social activity and study are good friends.
I have 3 main aspects to support my idea.
Firstly, the purpose of study is to do more contributions to the society, is to serve for the work. We learn more and more things in order to work easier and easier in the future, so social activity is the checking standard of study.
Secondly, the social activity can make us know what is our weakpoint and what we should learn in the future. For example, if I can not use computer in my social work, I must ask myself to learn it well so as to improve my work.
Finally, the social activity is also a kind of rest for us after study. From what has talked above, we can safely draw a conclusion that the social activity is a good partner of study, we should make use of the relations between them to create a good future.
6. Can you tell us something about the after-class activities at your college (university)?
When the classes are over, students burst out of the classroom buildings. Tired after a whole of serious study, they mostly spend one or two hours to relax and refresh themselves. If you take a walk on campus, you will get an idea about what students do after class.
On the playgrounds, various kinds of sports activities are going on. You will see students jogging or playing ball games. Some of them may only be practicing, some are competing seriously against each other.
On the weekends, members of various clubs meet at this time. Some students are learning painting, calligraphy or paper-cut, while others simply sit around and talk. The drama group is rehearsing and the school chorus is practicing. And there is also a film show on Saturday.
On Sundays or holidays we often have concerts, plays, or parties. Sometimes we organize picnic, climbing mountains, visits to exhibitions of factories. From time to time we invite professors from different fields to give lectures, they are qualified, professional and helpful.
Through the after-class activities, we widen our horizon, makes friends, have fun at the same time, the most important is, we learn many thing that we can’t in class. It is these activities that make our college life colorful and unforgettable.
