It Is Never Too Old To Learn

1. State the meaning of this saying

It Is Never Too Old To Learn

"It's never too old to learn".Yes,It tells us we should always realize that the most important things in this society is keep learning. Only by doing this can we keep up with the pace of the time.The followings are my points.

I think it necessary for people of all ages to learn. First, with the development of science and technology, knowledges are updated every day. If one doesn't want to learn, his knowledge will be out of date. Because of there is not standing still in the world, one must keep learning. Second, learning is an experience of gaining, seeking and owning. It's great fun to learn. Only by learning can one finds the joy in life. Otherwise, his life will be a boring one.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery. Only by seeing in the mystery of knowledge can one keep his knowledge from becoming yesterday. So why not keep learning all your life?

Knowledge is to a person what petrol is to a car. So it is pretty important for one to spend time and efforts to gain knowledge. The more one learns the more ignorant he will find himself, and thus what one has learnt can never be enough. In the modern society where new technology and discovery makes their appearance with each passing day, if one wants to keep pace with others, avoid being out of date and contribute to the society, one should pursue his studies all through his life.

In short, the proverb"It is never too old to learn." is true of everyone. Let us start and keep learning.

For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying “Learning is a daily experience and a life long mission.”You can cite examples to illustrate the importance of life long learning. You should write at least 120 words, no more than 180 words.


Currently in this constantly changing world, learning becomes a seemingly convenient but actually more complex matter. As an old saying goes,”Learning is a daily experience and a life time mission”.Apparently, the meaning of this saying is that if we truly desire to learn something, we are supposed to devote our life to it. There are several reasons accounting for this view point.For one thing, learning itself is an actually

complicated and painful matter, and as a result, it is advisable for us to commit much more time even our whole life to it. For another, it is exceedingly obvious that we are easy to forget what we learned, and accordingly, the significance of lifetime learning cannot be ignored. For example, memorizing vocabulary is commonly the first step of preparing for an English test. However, it is pretty difficult for us to put a huge number of new words in our mind. Therefore, we can divide these words into some groups and spend some hours each day on it in order to remember and understand these words.

To sum up, lifelong learning lays a solid foundation to the development of ourselves, and only when we realize the significance of lifetime learning can we understand the essence of learning.

2: Learning is a daily experience and lifetime mission.

Undoubtedly, learning is a daily experience and lifetime mission. For instance, Madam Curie, who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity and became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, was known for her persistence in learning.

Several reasons, both social and individual, could account for the importance of constant learning. Firstly, in an age of ruthless and relentless competition, only by learning constantly can we bring our potential and ability into full play and catch up with the times. Secondly, learning does not only help us acquire knowledge, but also enriches our lives and broadens our horizons. Thirdly, science and technology change with each passing day. Without constant learning, it would be impossible for us to update our knowledge.

Accordingly, it is constant learning that really matters in achieving success in modern society. In my humble opinion, it is high time that parents and teachers made joint efforts to encourage children to read more books instead of playing computer games all day.


For this part, you are allowed 30minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying “Listening is more important than talking.”You can cite examples to illustrate the importance oflistening. You should write at least 120 words, no more than 180 words.


As the most evolved creature in this planet,we human beings are in possession of two kinds of most

powerful capability, which are listening and talking. Compared with talking, more often than not, the significance of listening is way ahead in our life.

The most typical example of the importance of talking lies in the exchange among family members. When we are accustomed to talking without listening, in the process of which we might only focus on ourselves, feeling of others are ignored and even hurt. Without listening, the essential passport towards mutual understanding, the relation among our family members may bit by bit go alienated .

Besides , listening can also promote the efficiency of teamwork and efficiency is of the utmost consequence in such a fast-tempo society.

Talking is a window through which we convey ourselves , while listening is a door via which we understand each other . A life without mutual listening is just like a house without a door. Careful listening , so at least it seems to me , is a necessity but not a luxury in our daily life as well as in our work .

2.Listening is more important than talking

It is no exaggeration to say that listening is more important than talking. For instance, without listening, a baby won’t know how to speak; without enough listening, we cannot speak English fluently; without listening carefully in classroom, we cannot follow our teachers.

There are several reasons to account for the importance of listening. First and foremost, only by listening to others carefully can we understand their points of views. Secondly, more listening can not only broaden our

horizons, but also helps us absorb others’ wisdom. Last but not least, listening is an input and talking is an output. It is unwise to voice our opinions in those topics that we are unfamiliar with.

As an old Chinese old saying goes, silence is gold. Therefore, in my humble opinion, it is of great significance for us to spend more time in listening instead of rushing to speak.


For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write anessay commenting on the saying “Never go out there to see what happens, go out there to make something happen.” You can citeexamples to illustrate the importance of being creative rather thanthe mere onlookers in life. You should write at least 120 words, nomore than 180 words. 参考范文1:

As a famous saying goes, "Never go out there to see what happens, go out there to make something happen." Simple as the saying is, its meaning is profound and thought-provoking, which is meant to tell us that we are supposed to be creative instead of acting as the on looker.

Conspicuous are the impacts of being creative and I would like to explore the following aspects. To begin with, it is to leading a team to make constant progress what water is to fish, which can be best illustrated by an example concerning an extraordinary basketball player, Yao Ming. Moreover,

this kind of innovation also makes it possible for an ation to promote its international status and improve the comprehensive competitiveness.

From my perspective, keeping creative is so essential that adequate importance must be attached to it. Only when we literally realize the key role it plays can we become better selves in the foreseeable future.

2.Never go out there to see what happens, go out there to make something happen

There is no doubt that we should never go out there to see what happens; instead, we should take actions to make things happen. A telling example is Youyou Tu. She and her colleagues made 380 extracts from 2,00 herbs before they finally succeeded in discovering the pure substance qinghaosu, which can be used to treat malaria. As we all know, there were numerous scientists who wanted to find this substance, but it was her firm actions that made her the first Chinese Nobel laureate in medicine.

Why? Reasons are quite simple and can be listed as follows. To begin with, only by taking actions can we find the best way to solve those problems we are facing, but as a bystander, we can learn nothing meaningful. In addition, in an age full of ruthless and relentless competitions, without taking actions to make things happen, we are bound to lose those valuable opportunities. For instance, if Apple had just gone out there to see what happens in mobile phones, it could not have presented the amazing product, iPhone, to us.

Accordingly, we college students should not just be a watcher but a doer. In my humble opinion, we can start from applying what we have learned into practice.
