WRITING TASK 2You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.Write about the following topic:The international community should take action immediately to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. such as gas and oil. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.Write at least 250 words.
While the demand for energy has reached the historical peak in the modern world, the environment damage due to the widespread use of fossil fuels has also been the same case. To combat these crises, a worldwide cut of consumption of traditional fuels is proposed.
This proposal is surely understandable. Compared with clean energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro power, fossil fuels are blamed for some severe deficits. Coal and oil are dirty, emitting carbon dioxide when being burnt in the electricity production. They are not renewable either, which means they will be used up sooner or later. No wonder that oil has been a culprit of regional wars in the Middle East where the abundant oil reserve is boasted. Therefore, it is a consensus that developing and adopting alternative energy resources is a promising solution for humans to cope with these challenges.
However, there is resistance from various stakeholders to this suggestion. The strongest one is from those countries where coal and oil are the pillar industries and major source of revenue. Coal and petrol companies would be reluctant to give up their vested interest. Traditional fuels are cheaper, and the technology and facilities involved have been available for centuries, such as the pipe for transporting oil and natural gas, and the extraction and refinement process and techniques. However, we cannot afford these short-term economic interests at the cost of the devastation of our earth home.
To sum up, given the severe threats to human survival, international community should call for substitutes for fossil fuels as soon as possible, if not immediately, to tackle environmental degradation and energy crisis. It surely takes considerable time and endeavour, but we may not have sufficient time to wait.

1. Do you like your own voice?
Do I like my voice? Gee, honestly I wouldn’t say that I’m content with my own voice, because I find it kind of weird and too manly with husky tone. I guess simply because I produce and hear it everyday so it can be too familiar to be attractive to myself. Actually, My voice was softer, sweeter and higher-pitched when I was little.
2. Do you enjoy recording your voice and listening to it?
Well, I actually started recording my own voice and listened to it for improving my English speaking. Most people would feel uncomfortable listening to their own recordings, I wouldn’t say that I enjoyed it at first as my voice sounds much thinner and huskier with somewhat alien undertone than I expected, but I do find recording quite efficient and productive in improving English speaking.
3. Has your voice ever changed?
Well, everyone will experience a period when girls’ voices become soft and sharp while boys’ become solid and bold. I definitely sounded quite different when I was a kid with a louder voice and a higher pitch. But now my voice is much lower, softer and more mature, which is perhaps the only advantage that I feel relieved about it.
回答难度：7分 语料分析：每个人都有尴尬“变声期”“voice breaking” time solid and bold （声音）雄厚有力 feel relieved 感到舒心的
1. When do you need to be focused?
Well, I need to give full attention in many different situations which require quick response and deeper thinking, such as driving, reading, working and even having important conversations.
回答难度：7分 语料分析：give full attention 全神贯注 quick response 快的反应 deeper thinking 深度思考
2. What may distract you when you’re trying to stay focused?
I’ll definitely say that distraction from social media is the biggest problem. Just as many people do, I have my phone near me all the time, and it’s just so easy to take a peek at my Instagram or Wechat. I end up wasting half an hour on irrelevant messages or pictures. I think I really need to resist the temptation and put my phone away so as to avoid distraction.
回答难度：7分 语料分析：universal 普遍的；staple 主题；fashion-forward or not–odds 时尚先锋或传统人士；never-ending永不停止
3. What do you do to help you concentrate?
First. I usually organize my working environment before I start to work. For example, I’ll clean my desk and remove anything that can distract me or isn’t relevant to the task. Also, I choose to study or work during my peak brain times. I usually schedule my most challenging tasks when I anticipate feeling most energized and focused. For example, I’m a morning person, so I start my work as early as possible.
回答难度：7分 语料分析：organize my working environment 整理我的工作环境be relevant to 与……有关 peak brain times 头脑最清晰的时段 schedule my most challenging tasks 安排最具挑战性的任务（schedule在这里是动词“安排……的时间”）anticipate doing sth 期望/预料做某事 feel energized and focused 感到有活力和精神集中的 a morning person 早起的人
4. Is it difficult for you to stay focused on something?
It actually depends on many reasons. If I have a good night’s sleep, I can easily concentrate the next day; but if I feel tired or hungry, my brain may not be able to function properly. Sometimes if I have a tight schedule, I’ll find it easier to focus, because I’m fully aware that I can’t afford to waste time.
回答难度：7分 语料分析：function properly 正常地运作 a tight schedule 紧迫的时间表be fully aware that 充分意识到can’t afford to waste time 浪费不起时间
