托?？谡ZTPO44 Task3(閱讀+題目):Decide Funding for Student Organizations
Create Student Committee to Decide Funding for Student Organizations
I think students should be in charge of deciding which student organizations (for example, the jazz band or the hiking club) receive money from the university. Students should also be in charge of how much money each organization receives. A special committee made up of students could be created to make these decisions. Currently, these funding decisions are made by university administrators, but a student committee would know better than the administrators which organizations are most important to students and most deserving of the financial support from the university. I am sure a lot of students would be interested in serving on the committee, and those who do serve will gain valuable leadership experience.
The man expresses his opinion of the proposal given in the letter. State his opinion and explain the reasons he gives for holding that opinion.
托?？谡ZTPO44 Task4(閱讀+題目):Scope Creep
Businesses that perform services or carry out projects for clients generally come to an agreement with their clients about the extent or scope of a project before beginning the project. However, as a project progresses, clients may ask for more than the business originally expected to provide, and the scope of the project may grow larger than intended. This phenomenon is known as scope creep, and it can cause conflict between businesses and their clients. Scope creep is especially common when the terms or conditions of the initial agreement are not clearly defined, and a client may expect more than the business had planned to provide.
Explain how the example in the lecture illustrates the concept of scope creep.

Listen to a conversation between two students
Man : Hey, didn't you get the new roommate recently? Linda is her name, right? How's that working out?
Woman : oh, Linda is nice, but well, that is sort of problem .
Man : oh?
Woman : Yeah, our schedules are totally conflict. I'd like to do my studying late in the night at our room but she likes to go to sleep early. So unfortunately, my studying, my typing on the computer is keeping her awake.
Man : What are you gonna do?
Woman : Wow, we have talked about it. When she has to get up early every morning for class so there is nothing she can do. So as I see it, I got two options.
Man : What are they ?
Woman : Wow, I could adjust my schedule, start going to get up earlier and doing my studying either in the morning or sometimes during the day the way Linda does.
Man : So you change your daily schedule so it's more like your roommate's?
Woman : Yeah, that way I wouldn't be keeping her up in night.
Man : Sure.
Woman : The thing is I'm not really a morning person when I come to studying. So I'm not sure how much work I get done in the morning or at other times of the day since I tend to be busy then doing other things.
Man : What is your other option?
Woman : Well, I could go to the library at night and do my studying there.
Man : Why not do that? Use the library ?
Woman : Well, the thing is I prefer the convenience in my own room. The Library is ok but you know I got really comfortable desk and chair in my room and all my other stuffs are there too. My books, my notes, the stuff I really need to help me study.

Some people prefer recording life by taking pictures or keeping diaries, others prefer doing nothing. Which one do you prefer?
Some people prefer to record life by taking pictures or keeping diaries, others prefer to do nothing. Which do you prefer and explain why.
Prefer to enjoy a live performance:
Personally speaking, I would like to write diaries or take photos to record things I've experienced because they can help me to remember the precious moments for long. Firstly, things happened in the past can remind us some meaningful and significant moments in our lives. I started the habit of writing diary when I was in junior high. For all these yeas, I recorded some important times such as my graduations, the first time I was praised by my English teacher, an exciting basketball match and so on. I would like to review these feelings once a time. Also, keeping photos enables us to share the happy times with people we really care about, like our families and friends. It is a good opportunity to bound with each other.
I personally prefer recording life by taking pictures or keeping diaries. First of all, we get to have a more vivid memory about everything in our life. For instance, I carry my phone around with me all the time and I take a picture whenever I feel that the moment is worth being remembered. Moments like when I found the best cheesecake in town, or when I ran into an old friend who I hadn’t seen for many years, or when my whole family got together on Chinese new year’s eve. All the good old memories just come rushing back to me whenever I go through the album in my phone. Plus, recording life through taking pictures makes my life a lot easier. For instance, I take a picture of my fridge before I go grocery shopping every weekend, this way I get to make sure I wouldn’t buy anything I already have and I wouldn’t miss anything I really need. It’s sort of like making a shopping list, only more convenient and so much faster.
