Some scientists believe that intelligent life forms may exist on other planets and some want to send messages to contact them. Others think it is a bad idea because these life forms may be too dangerous. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

一些科学家认为,智能生命形式可能存在于其他行星,并且一些人想发送消息联系他们。其他人认为这是一个坏主意,因为这些生命形式可能太危险。讨论两种观点并给出你的意见。

答题思路:

Paragraph 1

转述题目,提出两种观点。

Paragraph 2

对于正反双方的观点分别论述

正方:外星有先进的科技—-解决地球上的现存问题;人类在太空生存

反方:外星生物可能对人类造成伤害—-先进的武器;与人类无法交流沟通

Paragraph 3

自己的观点:更认同反方观点—-强调联系外星人可能带来的风险—-传染病,破坏地球等

Paragraph 4

结论:寻找外星人的研究要以人类的安全为基础

范文解析:

For decades scientists have searched for proof of intelligent life forms on other planets. Some believe that we should try to contact them, whereas others believe it is too risky. This essay will discuss both views and offer my own opinion.

Key vocabulary

1. proof   n. 证明    prove  v. 

2. whereas  conj. 然而  此处也可用while

Scientists have warned for many years that at some point Earth will become uninhabitable. Many believe intelligent life forms would have technology far beyond our human capabilities, which could offer us solutions to many of the issues we face today, such as global warming, over-population and dwindling natural resources. Furthermore, their technology may even show how life on other planets could be viable. Conversely, it is this same knowledge that could prove harmful to humans. Intelligent life forms could use their technology as weaponry against humans. Moreover, it is also important to acknowledge that we most likely would not share a common language, which could lead to catastrophic misunderstandings. 

Key vocabulary

1. uninhabitable   adj. 不适宜居住的   词根:habitat

2. beyond human capabilities  超出人类能力

3. solution to  ……的解决方法    为固定搭配

4. dwindling   adj. 减少的   dwindle  v. 减少

5. viable   adj. 可行的

6. conversely   adv. 相反地  

7. catastrophic   adj. 灾难性的,毁灭性的

In my opinion, though it is exciting to consider the existence of intelligent life forms elsewhere, it is more pertinent to consider the risks of such a venture. The human body is vulnerable, and contact with aliens could open us up to disease and infection that we do not have the capabilities to cure. Moreover, though humans may have good intentions, the civilisations we contact may not necessarily have our best interests in mind. We should bear in mind our own history of colonisation, and consider that it may be that we ourselves could be colonised or destroyed by aliens. Lastly, even if intelligent bodies do exist elsewhere, they may not wish to be contacted by humans.

Key vocabulary

1. elsewhere   adv. 在别处

2. pertinent   adj. 相关的,中肯的,切题的

3. venture  n. 冒险旅行   同义词:adventure

4. vulnerable   adj. 易受攻击的,易受伤害的

5. infection   n. 感染   词根:infect     衍生词:infectious  adj. 有传染性的

6. colonisation  n. 殖民    colony  殖民地

To discover life elsewhere would be a giant step in scientific advancement, but we need to consider whether it is the safest choice we can make.  

Key vocabulary 

1. giant   adj. 巨大的,伟大的    同义词:great

2. advancement  n. 发展,进步  同义词:development

评价:

该作文为8分范文。

对于寻找联系外星生命这一较复杂抽象的问题,笔者在第二段中对于正反两方的观点都进行了较为细致地论述,且观点在切题范文内,并用到了很多相关的专业词汇和高级词汇;在第三段中,对于自己的看法,笔者提出了自己相对而言认同反方的见解,但这里并不是直接性的认同,而是给出关于反方更多的论点,把重心更多地放在了自己的观点上。Discuss题型的题目答题重点一在于批判性思维的观点,二则在于客观性与主观性性相统一,即题目所给出的观点和自己的看法都要强调。
