  • Stepping out of my comfort zone
    We tend to form an invisible circle around ourselves, this “comfort zone” makes us feel safe and protected most of the time. Yet, it’s also possible that sometimes, such comfort zone would kill our creativity or the desire to be an adventurer.
    People’s comfort zone varies from one person to another, you may have heard people say they stepped out of their comfort zone by visiting a foreign country, or talking to a stranger on the street; it could also be the first time that they went to school alone when they were little.
    Please think back in your past experiences, have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone to do something that you’ve never done or tried?
    Please write an 100-350 words essay to describe that particular experience.

  • Is being able to speak English equivalent to having an international perspective ?

    “As long as you can speak English, you will naturally develop an international perspective (國際觀).”

    In your response, define the term “international perspective,” then describe—based on your definition of the term—to what extent you agree or disagree with this statement.

     
    Note: When you define "international perspective," be sure to give a context where the term makes enough sense. To get a sense of how to define a term, click the address below and scroll down to read the example essay of "bravery."
  • The most unforgettable earthquake
    This year marks the 21st anniversary of the 921 earthquake, which happened in 1999.
    Whether you'd experienced 1999 921 earthquake or not, it's vitally important to learn the fact that Taiwan is located in a seismic zone, which leads to many earthquakes every year.
    Describe an earthquake that you remember vividly, and you may write of your own will to decide what details to include in the essay.
    To start, feel free to talk about the following topics:
    • What were you doing and how did you/people around you react to the earthquake?
    • What have you learned from this experience?
    • What do you think people should prepare in case of another earthquake?
    • You may also do some research to include statistics such as its magnitude and epicenter.
  • More connected, yet more isolated
    These days, people are more connected than ever before because of social media. With a few strokes on a keyboard, we can talk to a friend, comment on a video, or give a rating to the restaurant where we just ate. Despite all these links, some people actually feel more isolated now. Is social media truly to blame? What are your feelings about relationship between social media and isolation? Do you think you are more or less integrated in society? How about those around you? Include examples of friends, family members, or classmates who may have become lonely due to overuse of social media.
  • Are you a workaholic or just plain busy?
    When you tell your friends that you can’t attend to their baseball game this Saturday because of work, do they accuse you of being a workaholic? What some people do not realize is that workaholic is not synonymous with hard-working. Workaholics actually feel compelled to spend a long time on their job and may be unhappy when away from school or the office, whereas most of us may be simply overworked or just take pride in our service. Are you or any of your acquaintances addicted to work? Or perhaps you know of a public figure who is. Give some examples to show that it is not just a case of being very occupied but rather a compulsion to exert oneself for the job. 

    The following article discusses the distinction between a workaholic and a hard-working employee.

  • 窗外
    陶淵明曾言:「倚南窗以寄傲,審容膝之易安。」憑藉南窗遠眺,寄託傲世之情,即便空間狹小,也心安自得。生活中,有各種窗,家裡之窗、學校之窗、火車之窗、飛機之窗等各式建築物、交通工具之窗。從窗裡望向窗外,風景殊異,因而體會百種。望向窗外,陶淵明獲得開闊、坦然的心境,那麼,從你的窗裡,你看見什麼?想像什麼?又有何種體會及感悟呢?請以窗外為題,抒發你的所思所感,寫作結構完整的600-1300字長文。
  • 我對網紅現象的看法
    所謂的「網紅」,指在網路平臺上,透過影片、圖片、文字或是直播的分享,進而成為具有知名度或影響力的人。而近兩三年網紅的崛起,創造出前所未有的網紅經濟與學習、娛樂方式;另一方面,為了製造話題、增加點閱率,也帶來許多負面的現象:侵權、誤導觀眾、假貨之亂等屢見不鮮。'請以「我對網紅現象的看法」為題或自訂標題,分享你對網紅現象的看法。
  • 推動民主化之後,公共討論成為生活的日常。然而,從死刑存廢、同性婚姻合法到非核家園,看到的多是用情緒性語言去攻擊對方或為自己辯解,而較少用理性思辨角度去尋求解決問題的方法,不但無法達成共識,歧異反而變得更極端。論辨時,若能以「尊重有禮」的態度,對自己的想法提出理由,也對他人的想法詢問理由,相信可以消弭彼此的歧見,攜手走得更遠。請以「用理性對話」為標題,寫一篇文章,就身邊出現的歧異意見,論述該如何進行理性思辨。
  • 我看假新聞
    隨著社交網絡的興起,人人都可報導事件、表達觀點,藉由便利資訊工具,塑造話題、引導輿論,而由此帶來的後果是假新聞頻傳。當一件事用不同角度詮釋,甚至被加入個人情緒、價值觀時,我們如何判斷、相信什麼?以避免自己被蒙蔽?又該如何從這些雜亂無章的資訊中抽絲剝繭,拼湊出真相?請以「我看假新聞」為題,闡述你所思所想,敘述600字-1000字長篇作文
  • Is it fair to have internet privacy?
    This March, the online sexual violence, Nth room case, carried out through encrypted messaging app Telegram drew widespread public attention. Criminals using the app were able to remain anonymous and untraceable. Also, the controversial video communication system, ZOOM, was recently banned by the Taiwanese government for fear that confidential information might fall into the wrong hands. Do you think it is fair or not to have internet privacy? Please include reasons to support your ideas.
  • Distance Learning vs. Classroom Learning
    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, education worldwide has taken up a new challenge as to how to ensure that students continue to learn. One most commonly adopted alternative is distance learning, in which students could stay home without the risk of getting infected while learning through online media. However, is distance learning really the same as real-life classroom learning? Leaving aside the current global situation caused by COVID-19, in your writing, write down your preference, and compare/contrast the two ways of learning.

  • To live, or not to live, that is not a question
    An Italy Father, 72, died in March this year in Lovere, Bergamo, which is one of the worst-hit cities swept by Coronavirus.  After being infected by the virus, his parishioners had purchased a respirator for him, but he gave it to a younger patient whom he did not know.  What thoughts do you have after learning this sad story? You may want to refer to the news report “Coronavirus: At least 50 priests killed by coronavirus” released by BBC at https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-52015969.
  • Ann Landers was a famous columnist in USA during the second half of 20th Century.  She dealt with people’s personal problems by offering her advice.  Today, the newspaper still keeps circulating her past advice given to the reader, and these are still available on the web.  Read a letter sent to her, as below, and try to answer the reader if you were a car manufacturer, trying to help Ann Lander to explain your intention (as the manufacturer) to the reader. Dear Ann Landers: I hope you can answer a question for me. Why do car manufacturers build automobiles that can go over 85 mph? Every day, newspapers print hair-raising stories about auto crashes caused by speeding. The speedometer on my own standard sedan goes up to 120 mph. I am not a race car driver. Under what circumstances could I possibly need to go that fast?You know a great many experts, Ann. Please ask someone why car manufacturers create cars that can attain speeds that too often cause death and destruction. — M.M. If you want to, you can refer to Ann Lander’s reply at https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/03/20/classic-ann-landers-af440.  You are allowed to digest her thoughts, paraphrase them, comment with your thoughts, but do not copy her words exactly into your writing.

  • 防範武漢肺炎疫情,人人有責(註:命題時普遍使用「武漢肺炎」,後多使用「新冠肺炎」)
    武漢肺炎疫情,自爆發後至今,世界各國似尚未獲得控制。目前自大陸武漢市或搭遊輪返國者,必須集中隔離,自大陸其他地區返國者須自我隔離14日,若為確診者,則強制隔離治療。然而有少數應自我隔離的民眾,返國後到處趴趴走;也有將資料書寫不實,致使檢疫單位無法聯絡者,造成防疫漏洞。另外,政府相關單位呼籲民眾儘量避免前往公共場所、在公共場所需帶口罩、勤洗手、多喝水……等,以防止疫情蔓延。請就此命題,撰文抒論。
  • 守舊與創新
    安穩意謂穩定、平順、安全與安於現狀 , 通常讓人心安或有安全感;冒險則是代表變化、突破與危險犯難。冒險與安穩也似乎是變與不變,若變化多,常常有較多意外的狀況 ,要承受改變的壓力及不可預測的後果或收穫;不變雖然較固定 ,卻可以預測發展並提早計劃 ,但進步的幅度或許因此受限。然而 ,現世安穩可能是冒險創建而來的 ,看似極端的兩者 ,卻有著深厚的關聯 ,如此一來 ,我們應當如何抉擇或取得平衡 。請撰文抒論。
  • 我對AI(人工智慧)的看法
    現今AI正蓬勃發展,展現創造力,各種前所未有的應用發展,令人刮目。有些應用取代舊有人工,確實減少許多人力,增加生產效力達百倍、千倍、萬倍,甚至更多,但也有人擔憂將有50%以上的工作被逐漸取代,我們對於方興未艾的AI(人工智慧),究竟應該抱持何種態度?請就此命題,撰文抒論。
  • 拉自己一把
    臺北捷運車箱有一則看板:「拉自己一把」,底下有一行字:「請隨時緊握吊環或握把以保安全」,提醒乘客列車行進時得緊握吊環或握把,才能平安抵達目的地。在人生的旅途上,我們正處於大學學習階段,為了奠定爾後踏入社會的基礎,正須拉自己一把,無論在敦品勵學或待人接物等方面,都須積極勤勉學習。請就此命題,撰文抒論。
  • 我看「N號房」
    自從3C普及,科技日新月異,網路漸漸的可以讓每個人做任何事,交友、購物、學習……,其中也包括了新型的網路犯罪。日前在南韓,「N號房事件」被揭露,駭人聽聞的犯案手法比小說、電影情節更聳動,令世界譁然。而在南韓,兩百多萬人於政府網站上連署,要求不僅僅是主謀,更要連同「房客」們的資料一齊公布。這樣的請願讓許多會員們在搜尋引擎上緊張的想找尋刪除自己登入紀錄的方法,更有人為了逃避後續刑責與社會譴責自殺之案件頻傳。若今日身為執政當局,面對憤慨、恐慌的大眾,對於「剝奪他人人權的犯罪者,是否依然擁有人權」如此具爭議的議題,你會做什麼樣的決定?為什麼?
  • 安穩與冒險
    安穩意謂穩定、平順、安全與安於現狀 , 通常讓人心安或有安全感;冒險則是代表變化、突破與危險犯難。冒險與安穩也似乎是變與不變,若變化多,常常有較多意外的狀況 ,要承受改變的壓力及不可預測的後果或收穫;不變雖然較固定 ,卻可以預測發展並提早計劃 ,但進步的幅度或許因此受限。然而 ,現世安穩可能是冒險創建而來的 ,看似極端的兩者 ,卻有著深厚的關聯 ,如此一來 ,我們應當如何抉擇或取得平衡 。請撰文抒論。
