問題: Some students think that living in an apartment is better, while others think that living in an on-campus dormitory is better. Which opinion do you agree with, and why?

解答例: I think that to live in own apartment is better than to live in an on-campus dormitory. First, it is important to live alone, because man must remember to cook, to wash his or her own cloths, to clean the rooms and to use money. Second, it is not comfortable to live in an on-campus dormitory with friends from morning till night. Also, we have more time in own apartment than in an on-campus dormitory. In conclusion, I think we should choose to live in own apartment.
