國中英語基測出現過 national 的考題。

  

Below is how four students answered their teacher’s question in class.

Lily: I like shopping and talking to people. I think I can learn how to do business. Maybe selling clothes is a good business for me.

Ryan: My hobbies are playing computer games and making friends online. We often share our funny stories by e-mail. I guess I will learn more about computers and make super-smart computer programs.

Bill: My parents have kept lots of pets since I was little. We’ve experienced many things together, good and bad, happy and sad. Those stories have always stayed in my mind. One day, I will share them with people by drawing and writing books.

Anna: Though my mom and two sisters are all doctors, I’m sure I will stay as far away from a hospital as I can. I hate being sick, and I’m afraid of seeing sick people looking weak and sad. I’ll keep strong by playing my favorite sport, tennis, every day. One day I’ll join the national team and be another Lu Yen-Hsun.
