本周雅思写作话题：Children find it difficult to concentrate on or pay attention to their study in school. What are the reasons? How can we solve this problem?
Students ought to spend most of their time on the school work, but nowadays it is not uncommon that students are simply not able to put their heart to study.
(2) It is not uncommon that... ......并不罕见
(3) Put one’s heart to... 集中精力做......
There could be two reasons why this happens. First, today the students are surrounded by so many distractions that they gradually find that learning is too boring and uninteresting. While students two decades ago had nearly no choice but sit in the classroom and read books, students today have easy and fast access to Internet, on which they can do almost all things. For instance, they can play computer games, watch videos, search for any information they need, and chat with their friends, to mention just a few. So, having been used to this kind of“easy” online life, many young people simply cannot put their heart into the more serious and consuming school work.
(1)本段分析学生不喜欢学习的第一个理由，也是浅层次的外部理由：学生因为外部干扰(尤其是互联网的干扰)而讨厌学习。本段的论证思路是：学生发现学习无趣--比较今天的学生和20年前的学生--举例今天的学生可以在网上做什么--上网的结果就是不愿意再认真学习。注意与这个思路匹配的是一些常用句型。比如：while...; so, having done..., they...
(4)To name just a few：如此等等;诸如此类
Another important factor that affects the students' attitude towards their school work is that a good education seems not as important as before. For quite a long time, receiving a good education was the only way for young people to get a decent job and earn a high salary. But now, this is apparently not the case any more. Influenced by business stars like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, many young people now begin to believe that one’s success does not have much to do the education s/he receives. The students, therefore, are not motivated enough to focus on their learning.
As education of the young is so important to the future of the world, we ought to find ways out of this embarrassing situation. For example, the school and parents should work together to set limitson the time children spend online. Internet is a good great invention, yet obsession with it will certainly reduce the time that should have been put to more serious work. Besides, young people should be made to understand that life is not just about making money, but about having rich and colorful experience and education is the best gateway to that rewarding life.
