话题：a famous person
托福TPO独立口语41 TASK 1范文：
The famous person I admire most is George Washington who is the father of the United States. First, he is a great military genius. It's him that led the American army defeated the British colonists. Without his military talents, the USA would take probably more than 8 years to get rid of British colonial rule. In addition, he showed great virtue in his refusing to become an emperor .Besides, he is also a very considerate leader. During the war of independence, he spent lots of time in visiting and comforting the wounded soldiers which hugely enhanced morale in the army.

题目：Some people believe it is important for university to provide funding for student entertainment, such as movies or concerts on campus. Others believe that university money should only be used for academic purposes. Which view do you agree with? Explain why.
话题：University funding distribution
托福TPO独立口语41 TASK 2 范文：
In my opinion, the money should be used in entertainment rather than academic purpose. The reasons are as below. To start, college life can be really stressful, students have so many classes and assignments each day, so a little movies or concerts can do a lot good to them. Help them easy up and remain a better mood. So it’s a good way to balance their study and life. Furthermore, it’ll be healthier to spend their leisure time doing such entertaining things, otherwise, they may stay at their dorm or hang out in the library, which is a little boring, and if the university can hold some interesting events, it’ll be a good way to kill time.

托福口语TPO41 Task4(阅读+题目+范文):Primacy Effect
When people form opinions about a person or asituation, those opinions are likely to be based onfirst impressions, on an initial assessment of theperson or situation. In other words, the opinions wehave of people or situations tend to be based muchmore on the first information we team about themthan on information we learn later. This tendency is called the primacy effect. Researchersbelieve that the primacy effect occurs because after people have made an initial judgment, they tend to notice evidence that supports that judgment, and disregard or fail to noticeevidence that contradicts it.
Using the two examples from the professor's lecture, explain what is meant by “the primacy effect" andhow it can affect our opinions.

In the lecture, the professor mainly talked about the theory that how primacy effect be used in real life. To reinforce the theory, the professor gave two examples in his speech. The first one is that during his first week as a laboratory assistant, he made a good suggestion to his boss and it worked pretty well. And after that, his boss regarded him as a star employee even though he made some mistakes from time to time. The other one is that his colleague made a big mistake and lost some important data, and it cost the lab some time and money to fix it. So after that the boss decided that she was unreliable and incompetent. But actually she was really good at her job maybe even better than the professor himself. However their boss could only noticed her mistake based on the performance of her very first week. And that's the two examples the speaker presented to explain his idea.

Question:The speakers discuss two possible solutions to theproblem. Briefly summarize the problem then statewhich solution you recommend and explain why.
In this conversat ion, the woman is having a hard time dealing with the problem that staying on campus during the semester break, and the dorm is always closed, so she needs to find a place to stay for two weeks. And the man offers her two possible solutions. One is staying with her friends who live in an apartment not too far from campus. The other is the woman can get special permission to stay at the dorm. And if it were my choice, I would choose the latter one, because her friends will be on vacation and they may party too much and the woman will have to get up early in the morning and work all day, so she needs a quiet environment to sleep well. Although staying at the dorm will not as cheap as staying with her friends, at least it’ll guarantee her a good environment that suits her situation.

题目： Using points and examples from the talk , explain why play is important for a child‘s development 。
In the lecture, the professor provides two reasons to illustrate the theory that play is important for kids to develop in an emotionally healthy way. The first one is that play helps children feel more in control. Since small children have to depend on adults, so they often feel helpless, uneasy and anxious. But when they play, they can be in control. They can decide which toy they’re going to play and how to play with it. Sometimes they take building blocks and make a building out of them and without any help. Another reason is that play gives children a safe way to explore certain urges and desires. For example, kids may take the urge to be destructive, so by being destructive during play, their parents won’t get upset. Like some kids will build a tower and smash it all down. And that's the two reasons the speaker presented to explain the theory.
