2月11日的主题很抽象，虽然题目为REPORT及ARGUMENTATION混合，但是内容很难推进（progression). 词汇也偏抽象。 顺便提及，小作文为柱状图。我10号预测中，明确要求学生准备柱状图。
In modern society, ambition is more and more important. How important is ambition for being successful in life? Is ambition a positive or negative characteristics?
In this society characterized with fierce competition and heavier pressure, to pursue success has become a common occurrence for many people. In this process, self-motivation is regarded as a key factor deciding whether a person could achieve the goal or not.
Ambition is of huge significance for personal fulfillment for several reasons. In the process of realizing dreams and ideals, there is no getting around the fact that obstacles and difficulties will abound, which intimidate and hinder us, or even drive us into despair. Even though external assistance may get us out of trap temporarily, self-motivation turns out to be a long-lasting factor in perseverance and devotion to our commitment. Also, a person with intense ambition may be equipped with diligence andresilience, and will never indulge himself into laziness and material pleasures. Compared with those average-ability people, they tend to aim high and accomplish more than expected.
Ambition, indisputably, presents itself as an integral part in our life and a positive factor in driving us against ups and downs in the course of dream chasing. An appropriate example is that a well-known businessman, Ma Yun, has created a miracle in the field of online transaction. In his speech delivered in the public, he has admitted that many times when he faltered facing seemingly insurmountable deadlock, he just told himself to persist a little more and then finally he made it. In this sense, ambition serves as a stimulus to walk forward and also the last frontier that we could never hide back and give up.
Thus, my view is that every individual should bear the ambition and face the difficulties in pursuit of attainments. Without such a spiritual pillar, it is likely that we may not walk farther or win the glorious triumph at last.
