Model Answer 1:I consider myself exceptionally fortunate to have been taught & guided by some excellent teachers throughout my academic life. Among them, I would like to talk about Mr Smith, who has been an extraordinary teacher, an exceptional mentor, và who has had a great influence on my studies.I met Mr Smith for the first time when I was in fourth grade. He was our math teacher. Initially, we thought that he would be a tough teacher and we would have khổng lồ be very polite in front of him. We got this impression mostly because of his serious look and tidy dress-up. But soon we found that he was a very friendly person và we did not have to lớn be "very polite" khổng lồ him.He never made things complicated và tried over & over again to explain something to lớn us. He had a unique way of teaching và could explain complex topics very easily. Thus everything we learned from him was interesting,m và that's why we remember most of the theories và techniques of math he taught us.I would say he has had a great influence on my education because he helped me build a strong foundation in mathematics. My major in college was science, và mathematics was the most important subject at that level. I have always been good at math, và that's mainly because of Mr Smith - who had a major role in making the subject interesting khổng lồ me. Before I learned math from Mr Smith, math was even intimidating lớn me, and I considered mathematics khổng lồ be a complex và uninteresting subject. But his teaching và influences changed my way of thinking about math, và later on, math became one of my favourite subjects for which I admire this teacher greatly.Sample Answer 2:His name is Mr Malcolm Tyler, và I met this great science teacher for the first time after one of my science classes about 10 or 11 years ago when I was just a 6th grader. He asked me why I needed lớn see him, và I said that I was having a tough time understanding one of his physics lessons. Inspecting the “little me” with a great smile on his face, Mr Tyler told me to see him the next day as if he was expecting this kind of “trouble” at the kết thúc of his class!Anyway, I obliged & visited him the very next day. And, it took one of my favourite teachers, if not the most favourite of all time, only about 60 seconds to explain the entire lesson as clearly as the water of Lake Mashu in Japan. Having received an award for the “teacher of the year”, a couple of years ago, Mr Tyler wasn’t just good at teaching Physics, but also was equally adept at teaching Chemistry & Biology. In fact, very rarely have I seen a teacher explaining difficult lessons & things with such ease! My Tyler sir, indeed, was a special teacher not only because of his “depth of knowledge” in his subjects but also because of his great helping attitude.I still remember how my favourite teacher encouraged us for không tính tiền “private lessons” to study and understand science so that we could take our country forward with our talents và hard work. In fact, it was because of the constant push & encouragement of my dear teacher that I got admission to one of the most prestigious engineering colleges in my country. Being a great mentor both inside and outside of my school, Mr Tyler never hesitated khổng lồ admonish us if we ever failed to bởi things on time. Million thanks lớn him, for he has truly inspired me khổng lồ be the better person that I am today!Sample Answer 3:I met Mr John Markus, a great teacher & mentor, in my elementary school when I was a student at Agiou Georgiou School. With his tư vấn and suggestions, I have crossed many barriers in my life - both academic & personal. So, I am really grateful to lớn him. Without his guidance, I would not have been able lớn arrive in this position today.Mr John Markus was our general science teacher in the school. He was a great teacher và had some unconventional yet effective teaching methods. He hardly used books or other teaching materials for teaching in the classroom but explained the lessons with such command and ease that we all understood them. Interestingly, he knew all of our names which was a great mystery khổng lồ me.He was special in the sense that he knew how lớn teach the students so that they understand the subject và can connect the lesson with real-life events and examples. Mr Markus also supported his students with personal matters and mentored them lượt thích his own children. Moreover, he used lớn remain in cảm biến with the parents of the children. As a result, he turned into a popular figure among the parent community as well.This teacher has influenced my education to lớn a great extent. He inspired me to study hard và taught me the importance of education not only for a career but also for enlightenment in life. Whenever I met him with some sort of trouble, he guided me with a way out. So, I have always admired him and I still do.

Part 3: Details Discussion:

Discussion topics: Developments in educationQ. How has education changed in your country in the last 10 years?Answer: The truth is that ten years ago the education system wasn't the same as it is now and many aspects have changed in our education system. In the past, teachers used khổng lồ engage conventional methods of education lớn teach their students, and the only mean they utilised was blackboards & textbooks.Furthermore, as far as I'm concerned, schoolmasters paid more attention lớn their student's weaknesses, problems & needs và the bonds between them were stronger than it is today. Moving lớn the present, the existing ties between teachers và children have become more impersonal and unfortunately, many teachers willingly keep a distance from students in the classroom. In addition, technological advances play a vital role in teaching và the methods used in the classrooms these days.To conclude, I prefer the past educational system (as it was 10 years ago or so) to it now. Education and teaching aren't only about the internet & technology. The internet does not make someone literate, but a strong bond between a teacher and a student does.

Q. What changes bởi you foresee in the next 50 years?Answer: It seems to lớn me that in the forthcoming future, the changes will be tremendous. First of all, it won't be necessary for teachers lớn be present in the classroom as everything is going lớn be accomplished by the use of technology. For example, students will become knowledgeable about different matters from the comfort of their trang chủ and they will correspond with their tutors online rather than having personal relationships. Of course, it still happens these days to a certain extent, but in the next 50 years, I believe that this will be the way of teaching exclusively.Going further, I think that apart from some basic subjects such as literature và mathematics, other subjects will be optional & each child will have the opportunity lớn choose the subject they want to lớn take even in primary schools. From my point of view, I cannot say for sure if this is the appropriate course of action, but one thing is clear, continuous education & learning will be accepted and embraced by all.Discussion topics: A national education systemQ. How vì chưng the expectations of today’s school leavers compare with those of the previous generation?Answer: In the past school graduates just hoped to find a job in order lớn earn a salary and cover their living expenses. Some of them did not even look for a job but continued their family business. They didn't have as high expectations as school leavers have these days.In many cases, nowadays school-leavers don't have realistic expectations, & they wish khổng lồ have a higher position with a great remuneration, even without professional experience. Furthermore, these days knowledge isn't the only thing required for a good job as skills, experience, discipline and adaptability, khổng lồ name but a few, are prerequisites in order for someone lớn enter the labour market. That, however, was not the case in the past.Q. What role vì chưng you think extracurricular activities play in education?Answer: It is commonly believed that extracurricular activities play an important role in education and have many benefits both in personal & professional life. I quite agree with that as such activities enhance our capability và improve our way of thinking. First of all, children with extracurricular activities learn how khổng lồ collaborate và co-exist with other peers & learn about soft skills. In addition, a great opportunity is provided lớn them to interrelate with others và develop và evolve their interpersonal skills. Hence, these types of activities can create a feeling of contribution, as children are involved in different things và this will lead them lớn boost their self-esteem. Lastly, all these advantages will help children build a well-rounded personality và an exceptional character & will benefit the school and teachers by having well-mannered và conscious students.Discussion topics:Different styles/methods of teaching và learningQ.What method of learning works best for you?Answer:Practical work and lap experiments work best for me. I believe that when we vị something of our own, be it in a school laboratory or classroom, we tend khổng lồ understand và remember them better than just studying them theoretically. I have always learned better when I did something personally.Q.How beneficial vì you think it is khổng lồ group students according lớn their màn chơi of ability?Answer:I believe grouping students based on their talents & ability reap substantial benefits primarily because it helps teachers plan class lessons more effectively. In this method, teachers know how much effort they have khổng lồ put into teaching something in the classroom and how they should deliver the lecture. They bởi vì not need lớn explain the same lesson khổng lồ different students and take care of individual students as their màn chơi of ability is almost the same.
