雅思7分大作文范文 :城市功能分区好吗


  雅思7分大作文范文 :城市功能分区好吗?

  In many cities, planners tend to arrange shops, schools, offices, and homes in specific areas and separate them from each other. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

  本题是2010年8月28日的旧题翻版,有的烤鸭表示看到这个题目整个人都不好了,连写都不想写了!

  为什么会如此呢?唐老师认为,主要原因可能是多数烤鸭对这个话题不熟悉,看到题目就发懵了。但是,如果认真审一下题目,我们就会发现,本题涉及的内容其实与我们的生活紧密相关。现在的城市有一种倾向,即把相同功能的单位集中在一起,比如我们有电脑城、大学城、商业区、住宿区等。那么,这种趋势是好还是坏呢?

  好处

  好处很明显:相同功能单位相互交流变得容易,我们去寻找这些单位也变得容易,因此城市功能分区有助于提高我们的工作效率和生活质量。

  坏处

  但坏处也很明显:如果我们家庭周围没有学校或者购物中心,那就会给我们的日常生活造成困扰。因此,我们可以得出这么一个结论:那些我们仅偶尔打交道的单位可以集中在某个特定地方,并与其他地方分开,但那些与我们日常生活息息相关的机构,则应该均匀分布在我们生活的地方,不宜分开。

  本题思维的核心是:把题目观点进行拆分,然后分别讨论不同情况的优劣。

  老师笔记

  01.Modern city planners tend to separate a city into different areas according to their functions, such as the university area, business area, hospital area, residentialarea and so on. While this practice does bring about positive effects on our life, it may also create many problems.

  现代城市规划者倾向于根据城市的功能,将城市划分为不同的区域,如大学区、商业区、医院区、居住区等。虽然这种做法的确给我们的生活带来积极影响,但也可能产生很多问题。

  解析:(1)separate 分隔;分开的.(2)residential 居住的;居民的.(3)positive 积极的

  02.A city arranged on the basis of clearly-defined functional areas can make our life a lot easier and more efficient. When we want to buy a specific model of computer, for example, we can simply visit the city’s hi-tech market without having torummage every corner of the city. For another example, if all government offices are located in the same area, then we will save tremendous amount of time when we need to get our bureaucratic paper work completed.

  一个基于明确定位的功能分区的城市能使我们的生活更轻松、更有效。比如,当我们想买一个特定型号的计算机,我们可以访问城市的高科技市场,而没有必要搜寻城市的每个角落。再如,如果所有政府机关都位于同一地区,那么当我们需要完成各种官僚文书时,就将节省大量的时间。

  解析:(1)on the basis of 基于......(2)efficient 有效率的;(3)specific 特定的;(4)rummage 搜索;(5)bureaucratic 官样的;程序性的.

  03.However, this function-based city partitioning is not without problems, especially when we have to use a certain function every day, yet it is located somewhere far away from our home. Let us just suppose that all grocery stores were concentrated in the east end of the city and we lived in the west end. In that case, we would have to travel miles across the city every day to get our fresh fruits and vegetables.

  然而,基于功能的城市划分并不是没有问题,特别是当我们每天必须使用某个功能,而它又位于远离我们家的某个地方时。让我们来想象一下:所有的杂货店都集中在城市的东区,我们住在西区。那样的话,我们每天都得在城市里穿行数英里才能买到新鲜水果和蔬菜。

  解析:(1) partitioning 区分;分开.(2) concentrate 集中.

  04.In light of the above discussion, I would conclude that whether the functionaldivision of a city is desirable or not depends on what the functions are. For those functions we do not often require in life such as museums and high-tech centers, they should be kept away from us in specific locations, but for those every-day functions like schools and stores, they should be located among us.

  根据以上讨论,我认为城市功能分区是否可取,这取决于功能是什么。对于那些我们生活中通常不需要的功能,如博物馆和高科技中心,应该让它们坐落在特定的地点,远离我们但对于那些每天需要的功能,比如学校和商店,它们应位于我们中间。

  解析:(1) in light of 根据......(2) division 分区 (本文使用的替换词汇包括separation; partitioning; division).(3) desirable 可取的.
