去美国读本科,大家在准备材料的时候,要重视起essay的写作,要为自己的申请加分。今天就由留学在线网介绍美国本科留学essay写作要点有哪些?

essay题目

通过对大学规定的Topic简单归类分析可知,大部分学校一般都会出或者涉及一下几类:

1、回忆类,描述个人成长经历,包括学习、生活、个人兴趣等;

2、自省类,谈谈对自己影响深刻的人物或者事件;

3、启发类,自述选择该校的原因;

4、憧憬类,勾勒一下自己成功申请该校之后会给学校做出什么贡献,或者想象毕业之后希望实现的目标。

书写内容包括哪些方面?

1、家庭教育。社会是以家庭为基本单位的,家庭教育不同,学生的学习、能力、思想是天壤之别,一个推崇自由、民主的家庭,相亲、和睦的家庭,教育孩子独立坚强的家庭,注重培养孩子理性和逻辑思维的家庭,培养出来的孩子绝对能在人群中脱颖而出。

2、外界感染。除了家庭,学生接触到的最多就是学校、同学了,外国本科的录取官会在意你有什么样的朋友,你们之间发生过什么事情,自己和对方有什么优点和不足,有没有成功解决等,意在看学生对人际交往持什么态度。

3、爱好特长。每一个申请人都会有爱好特长,从爱好特长来看,相比于性格直接陈述更容易看出学生的想法,也能看出一定的能力。

4、目标理想。学生可以写出自己有什么目标或是理想,可以让录取官觉得该学生有一定的规划意识,这样的学生做事情具有目标性和方向性。

写作要点

1、对申请学校认知不多。

有的学生在选择学校和专业的时候没有仔细考虑自身的情况,甚至有的抱着非名校不读的想法,但是也没有仔细去咨询了解对方学校的情况。因此对于大多学校都会提出的问题——why choose this school,学生不能说出学校的大致情况、特点和优势,回答时敷衍了事,只说出最表层的一些东西。回答不到位就暴露出自己的态度,很难看出申请人对学校的兴趣和向往程度。

2、回答问题时没有正确审题。

一些在思想上很懒惰的学生总以为各个学校问的题目差不多就可以互相借用,没有认真审题就把申请学校A的套用在学校B上;还有的学生审题不到位,在内容上出现了很多与主题或者申请不相干的部分。

3、找不到思路,不会转换。

有的学生想考察学生的思维灵活度,想知道学生的专业水平或是人际交往的态度等,提出的问题都是很简单的。例如芝加哥大学:请比较苹果和橘子,这个题目就不应该只写两种水果的区别什么的,可以将两种水果拟人化,各种水果代表哪两种人等等。总之,思维不要太死板,学会转换。

4、词句使用不恰当。

大多英语水平有待提高的学生要么用词太过简单,要么总是喜欢用晦涩、深奥的来让录取官认为自己的具有多大的词汇量。前者会使文章显得没有一点深度,后者容易使文章看着不顺畅,读着拗口。所以,在写作时首先要有条理表明自己的看法,其次使文章读起来语句通顺,再使用一些有真正意义和内涵的语句。

5、文章呈现的语气让人难以接受。

有的文章语气平平毫无生气;有的过于激烈,为了显示自己是对的,极力鼓吹自己的看法或价值观;有的一味夸对方学校是多么地有名气,甚至用哀怜的语气博得录取官的同情。这都是不可取的,适当地赞扬即可,尽量使文章读起来有生机活力,做到态度理性冷静客观。

6、语法拼写等小错误。

有的学生单词拼错,语法用错,用翻译机器硬生生地翻译,出现频率过高。学生不仅需要提高英文水平,最好是学会英语思维。

essay范文

I'M GOING RUNNING TODAY. I am not concerned about my calorie consumption for the day, nor am I anxious to get in shape for the winter season. I just want to go running.

I used to dislike running. "If you don't win this game, you're all running five miles tomorrow," the field hockey coach used to warn, during those last days of October when the average temperature seemed to be decreasing exponentially. And so, occasionally, my grief-stricken team would run numerous miserable laps around the fields. At the end of these excursions, our faces and limbs would be numb, and we would all have developed those notorious flu-like symptoms; but the running made us better in the long run, I suppose. Nevertheless, I counted down the days until the end of the field hockey season, vowing never to put on a pair of running shoes again. Then I surprised myself by signing up for outdoor track in the second half of sophomore year. I was foolish to have believed that I could ever escape this insidious and magnetic addiction.

Anyone would have thought that I'd be off the team in a few days, but the last week of January caught me splashing through puddles of melted ice, and February winds nearly blew me off the track. I looked forward to practices this time around, to the claps and the persistent cheers of my fellow trackies. I was feeling a "runner's high" spurred by the endorphins released by exercise. But to attribute my affinity for running solely to chemistry diminishes the personal importance that running has for me.

I like running—in the cool shade of the towering oak trees, and in the warm sunlight spilling over the horizon, and in the drops of rain falling gently from the clouds. Certain things become clear to me when I'm running—only while running did I realize that "hippopotami" is possibly the funniest word in the English language, and only while running did I realize that the travel section of The York Times does not necessarily provide an accurate depiction of the entire world. Running lends me precious moments to contemplate my life: while running I find time to dream about changing the world, to think about recent death of a classmate, or to wonder about the secret to college admission

Running is the awareness of hurdles between me and the finish line; running is the desire to overcome them. Running is putting up with aches and pains, relishing the knowledge that, in the end, I will have built strength and endurance. Running is the instant clarity of vision with which I can see my future just one hundred yards in the distance; it is the understanding that these crucial steps will determine victory or defeat.

Running is not the most important thing in the world to me, but it is what fulfills me when time permits. And right now, before the sun goes down, I like to take advantage of the road that lies ahead.
