Something difficult I would like to achieve success is to win the first prize of the All China Interpreting Contest, which is a well-renowned interpreting competition in China held by Translators Association. To make it is super challenging since I have heard that there has been only one fellow student in my department who reached the final last year due to the fact that this contest consists of a large number of excellent students who wish to enter the interpreting and translating profession after graduation. When it comes to how I would like to prepare for it, I think the practice is what matters the most since the length of tape hour is critical in evaluating whether an interpreter is qualified or not. In this way, I would try to ensure that my daily practice hour would be no less than three hours. Besides, after recording my speaking, I would review it and analyze the performance so as to increase the accuracy, which is also an efficient way to make the training more productive. Since the short-term memory is essential in doing consecutive interpreting, then I would also focus on enhancing my ability to do quick response through some quiz games. I’m fully aware that the whole process is just like a marathon and it is likely for me to get worn out during the whole preparations, but I really want to prove that I could be a qualified professional interpreter in the future and I am confident that I would not be beaten by these hardships.
1.Do you have goals?
Yes, of course I do. I’m the kind of person who enjoys setting goals every day, including short-term as well as long-term goals. I feel that writing goals and trying my best to make them happen give me “done it” pleasure since it is super satisfying to cross off the record of tasks that I’ve written. Besides, setting a long-term goal can always drive me to spare great efforts to achieve it.
2.Why it’s important for young people to have goals?
Well, I’m not quite sure about that but from the young people around me, I feel that it is likely for them to set some long-term goals related to their interests, like ul want to travel to at least three countries in 2021 ” or “ I wish that I can get a certificate for scuba diving in Thailand”. In addition, there are some hardworking new employees who are determined to get promotion, so they tend to set goals for acquiring more professional skills or passing certain vocational tests to get certificates.
3.What goals do young people like to set?
There are several reasons for that. On the one hand, setting goals can make the young better manage their leisure time and live an orderly life since it is easy for them to be lost in today*s ever-changing society. On the other hand, many youngsters can get a strong sense of achievement from realizing the goals, which can inspire them to go further in their study or career.
4.How can parents help their children to achieve goals
There are several things that parents can do to help their kids achieve goals. For the one thing, they can help their children make daily plans to let these young minds form the habit of managing their time in an orderly manner since childhood. Besides, they can give their kids some rewards after realizing some short-term goals, such as taking them to the amusement park, to encourage them to continue trying the best to achieve the long-term goals.
5.Having goals is a good thing?
Yes, it’s certainly a good thing. On the one hand, setting goals can let people better manage their leisure time and live an orderly life since it is easy for them to be lost in today’s ever-changing society. For instance, young people may indulge themselves in video games, but with goals, they tend to work hard to achieve them. On the other hand, people can get a strong sense of achievement from realizing the goals, which can inspire them to go further in their study or career.
6.Do you think it’s important for people to set goals?
Yes, setting goals is essential in people’s life. On the one hand, setting goals can let people better manage their leisure time and live an orderly life. Without the goals, whatever the short-term or long-term ones, it is likely for some people to be sloppy. On the other hand, people can get a strong sense of achievement from realizing the goals, which can inspire them to go further in their study or career.
