比如說這問題:

Computer technologies are more accessible and cheaper. As a result, more adults work at home and more children study at home. Is this a positive or negative development?

Sample Essay

[1] Owing to more accessible and affordable technology, an increasing number of people choose to work or study at home. In my opinion, this trend is having both positive and negative consequences in equal measure.

[2] It is undeniable that employees and students can benefit from this trend. One notable benefit is great flexibility. Gone are the days when people have no time to take care of their children or do their household chores because they need to travel for work. Nowadays, by working remotely employees can start their work after they finish household chores or childcare responsibilities. Moreover, more employment and education opportunities are available thanks to the advent of technology. Employers can recruit people living overseas or even physically disabled workers, thus making job opportunities more accessible to people.

[3] As for students, they can study at their own pace, since online courses spare them the trouble of struggling to keep up with teachers in classes. When students have difficulty understanding the lesson, they can replay the teaching videos until they understand it. Besides it is especially beneficial for students who are physically handicapped or who live in faraway places.


[4] Convenient as it may seem, some potential problems can arise. Employers may have trouble monitoring and evaluating their online employees performance. Likewise, teachers may find it difficult to track the learning progress of their online students. Another notable concern is that some students staff members who lack self-discipline may have trouble concentrating, they would be susceptible to violence and pornography on the Internet. Worse still, this trend can result in the lack of human interaction, because employees and students can just stay at home without communicating with people face to face.

[5] In conclusion, even though our technology has become cheaper and more accessible, we still need to be aware of their hidden dangers.

第一段,範文很快就表明了自己的立場,也就是把積極和消極的發展結合在一起來寫。在我看來,這一趨勢既有積極的一面,也有消極的一面。即‘In my opinion, this trend is having both positive and negative consequences in equal measure.

第二段,範文從工作方面闡述了第一個積極的發展。一個顯著的好處是極大的靈活性,即‘One notable benefit is great flexibility(for work).

第三段,範文從學生的角度闡述了第二個積極的發展。例如他們可以按照自己的節奏學習‘They can study at their own pace. ’和他們可以回放教學視頻,直到他們理解為止‘They can replay the teaching videos until they understand it. ’等。

第四段,範文開始闡述幾個消極的發展。例如,1.雇主可能很難監控和評估線上員工的表現 Employers may have trouble monitoring and evaluating their online employee’s performance.2.教師可能會發現很難跟蹤他們的線上學生的學習進度‘Teachers may find it difficult to track the learning progress of their online students. 3.這種趨勢可能會導致缺乏人際互動 This trend can result in the lack of human interaction.’等。

第五段,範文則作了一個總結,在享受便利的時候,也提醒我們需要意識到這種現象的潛在危險。即 We still need to be aware of their hidden dangers.

這篇範文是嚴格按照我們的框架來寫的,總共五個段落,而且每個段落的長度都把握的很好。積極的發展闡述的很詳細,而幾個消極的發展也寫的非常合情合理。第一段和最後一段更做到了言簡意賅,沒有一點拖泥帶水。所以,這篇範文堪稱完美,是我們學習的典型範本。
