【德国留学攻略】德国留学最常见的8个问题及对应解决方案

【德国留学攻略】德国留学最常见的8个问题及对应解决方案图1

1、在德国留学申请期间,学生应该何时选定自己的专业?如果在课程教育中想要调换自己的专业方向,学校可以做出相应的调整吗?

学生在申请的时候就要考虑好自己日后攻读的专业。在整个留学教育中,基本上不能调换自己的专业。一般来说,你在国内读什么专业,到国外留学也需要读相同或相关的专业;如果你想要攻读其它专业,就必须重新开始学起。比如,你本科读的是建筑专业,留学之后想要在德国读经济学硕士,那么就必须从本科开始读起;本科经济学相关专业结束,并拿到相应的学位证书才能继续深造硕士学位。

2、德国的教育一向比较严谨,中国留学生在德国的毕业率达到80%,但是还是有20%的学生不能够毕业。德国的学校对于没有毕业的学生有什么相关的措施吗?

对于中国人来说,20%的德国留学生不能毕业听起来很恐怖,但是德国人听到这个消息却很高兴,因为德国本地人的毕业率为75%.近几年来,中国留学生的表现都很好,也比较努力,所以他们当中80%的人都能够拿到毕业证书,这已经是一个非常高的比例了。大学里规定,一般的考试学生拥有3次机会,3次考试不通过就拿不到毕业证书。不过,在德国读书相对来说比较自由,你可以自己选择科目和考试,然而这对于自制力不高、学习不够努力的学生来说就比较危险了。

3、如今,其他国家的留学生安全问题日益突显,值得人们考虑。那么,去德国留学的学生的安全问题又是怎样的呢?

德国算是一个非常安定的国家。不过学生自己出行的时候还是要多注意,不能太过张扬。

4、中国留学生想要申请奖学金要具备哪些条件?对于申请对象有些什么样的要求?

申请德国奖学金,需要提交你的外语成绩证明(德文授课课程—DSH2、TestDAF16分以上或德语系学生可以提交德语专业八级证书;英文授课课程则—托福80分以上或雅思5.5分以上),此外还需要申请材料的推荐信。德国奖学金对于申请人没有年龄上的限制,但是对取得上一个学位的年限有规定。一般来说,申请赴德读博的学生硕士毕业应不超过6年,联合培养的博士生博士入学应不超过3年。还有,申请时已在德国居住一年以上的申请人不在资助范围之内。DAAD奖学金的额度是根据学位来调整的,一般来说硕士生为750欧/月,博士生1000欧/月,博士后短期学习或研究资助为1000欧/月,拥有更高学历和职称的学者受到的资助金额会更多。

5、高考生能不能去德国读本科?

德国大学入学的要求比较严格,是不允许高考生直接进入大学学习的。要想进入德国大学学习,211工程大学至少要读满一个学期,普通大学至少要读满三个学期。一般去德国攻读本科的较少,去德国攻读硕士研究生的比较多。

6、那么,中国学生到德国读研究生需具备什么条件?

在国内读完本科可以直接申请德国同一专业的硕士学位课程。德国一般不允许转专业,如果想换专业则必须从本科开始读起。德国大学是承认中国学历的。如果是211工程学校毕业的学生,申请赴德留学会被优先考虑,申请相对会容易一些。

德国大学只承认中国教育部认可的学校。在德国职业教育不属于高等教育体系,所以中国的专科学历不能读德国高校。国内的三年专科毕业生必须在德国读一年的预科,才能进入大学学习本科专业。

7、德国的就业状况如何呢?什么专业在就业中会有优势?

德国毕业生的失业率是非常低的,接近3%,这是一个非常低的数值,一般毕业后几个月甚至几周就能够找到工作了。德国缺少工程科学方面的人才,所以读工程科学的毕业生在找工作时具有非常大的优势。德国政府为了吸引外来人才,专门为在德读书的留学生提供毕业后18个月的“找工作签证”,希望有更多的海外留学生可以留在德国。当然,海外学生在人才市场上也有一定的弊端,在这里我建议想去德国留学的学生,一定要学好德语,如果你希望日后留在德国工作,那么德语一定要好。

8、已经在德国工作的外国人如何才能申请移民?

必须在德国居留年满8年以上,其中包括在德学习和工作的时间,这样才有资格申请移民德国。

【口语高分】雅思口语巧妙回答的4必杀技巧

雅思口语考试中,答题要有一定的技巧,虽然有着一定的难度,但是还是有技巧可循的,下面就跟着我们老师一起来看看。

【口语高分】雅思口语巧妙回答的4必杀技巧图1

答题时要往积极方面靠拢

在回答问题时应表现正面的态度。考生通常都应该诚实地回答所有问题,但有一些问题,回答的时候还是应该保持比较正面,尽量说好的一面。例如问你对自己家乡的印象,就算你真的认为非常不堪,也不应说出口。一句话,不要complain

回答需要直接清楚

千万不要刻意用一些深奥或复杂的字来解释事情。不要以为这样可以加深考官的印象,一个简洁明了的答案绝对比一个复杂难懂的答案好。但要指出的是,简单的答案并不等于短答案,答案太短会使整个面试有太多的停顿,而考官也要大伤脑筋多想问题,你面临的问题也就会更多。

把握好考场节奏

首先,你尽可能地多说,让考官少说,但也不要走上极端,把两个人的交谈变成一个人的演讲,要注意分寸。我们每一个考生并不应期望着考官会问到我们已准备的问题,但是如果遇到,不要word-for-word地把自己准备好的答案滔滔不绝地背诵出来,给人一种明显在背书的感觉。

巧用一些口语表达

Good morning.

Good afternoon.

I’m very well. Thank you. And you?

Pleased to meet you.

What exactly would you like to know?

As you can see from my CV…

Perhaps I can begin by telling you about…

1-4月雅思口语Part3话题范文:family member图1

1-4月全部口语part3部分话题答案传送门

1. What are the values of family in your country?

Answer: That’s a really important question. First of all, I believe that
family values don’t differ from country to country and allow me to say that they
should be the same throughout the world. As far as I’m concerned, the most
important values of a family are the so-called moral values, which enable people
to draw plausible distinctions between right and wrong, good and bad, true and
false. The lessons learned from the family are invaluable throughout our
life.

Furthermore, the family values are vital in making decisions and can be
obtained by personal and life experiences with close relationships with family
members. To be more specific, some examples could be: being honest and
trustworthy, courageous and patient, taking up responsibilities as well as
adding values to the world are the norms of our family and society. A family is
so important and we stand for our family members no matter what. Thus the family
comes first is the morality everyone in our country believes. We also consider a
family as the unit of a society or a country and bonding, relationship,
trustworthiness, helpfulness are lessons that come with the close family
ties.

2. How family bonding is necessary for happiness in life?

Answer: Our parents are the reason for our existence and with them, we get a
family. Parents are the persons we see and rely on when we open our eyes for the
first time. Moreover, parents are the primary educator and they teach their
children how to develop confidence, socialisation skills, morals, values and
views in life. Since they are the base of our family, closeness in a family
leads people to have an intrinsically fulfilling and flourishing life.

This can be justified by the fact that kids who enjoy strong family bonding
tend to be happier and mentally healthier that those who are in a dysfunctional
family environment.

3. What type of family do you like? Nuclear family or joint family?

Answer: That’s really an interesting question! My personal opinion is that a
nuclear family is much more preferable to me compared to a joint family. The
reason for my preference is possibly because I grew up in a nuclear family and
it was a pleasant memory for me. Besides, in a nuclear family there are the
couple and their children and in this situation anything is manageable and
family members have a stronger relationship. Fighting and quarrel are rare in
nuclear families.

On the other hand, the second type of family is extended family or joint
family and includes grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and so on. I prefer a
quiet environment than a noisy one. In a joint family, this is unlikely to
happen and people always do not have privacy. Therefore, I strongly believe that
a family only with mum, dad and siblings works better for me.

4. How family value and bonding have changed over the last decade?

Answer: Unfortunately, the sacred notion of a family has lost its meaning to
a certain extent in the last ten years. People don’t invest in feelings anymore
and don’t retreat as well. Nowadays quarrels between couples are a frequent
occurrence and because women are financially independent, they don’t step back
like they did many years ago. Moreover, a principal cause that has led to this
situation is the internet. When family members have some spare time they prefer
to consume it by going online instead of having some family conversations. I
would jump to the conclusion that people who decide to create a family should
let go off their ego and in difficult times they should also think that their
children want their parents to be happy and together.

5. In what ways have families in your country changed in recent years?

A. The families have changed greatly in my country for different reasons and
situations. Earlier the families were united but currently they have been shaped
into nuclear families. When people used to live the in the country areas, the
families were large but with the advancement of time, the families have broken
and took their own shares and formed small families instead of the large ones
with the excuse of extensive maintenance cost, misunderstanding and more other
issues.

6. Should husbands and wives have different roles within the family? Why /
why not?

A. A husband and a wife should play different roles for different reasons.
From time immemorial, males are considered as the bread earners while the
females are the homemakers. But the ideas have changed massively in the current
days. Now, both the husband and wives are seen engaged in money-earning
activities. Moreover, they are sharing their responsibilities between them and
thus they are playing different roles in the family.

7. Which are more important to you – your family or your friends?

A. My family is the most important thing to me than friends. A Family is a
place where you will have everything. The family members will try to support you
reasonably; both in good and bad situations and in return, they do not expect
anything. It is the most important feature of a family. The family members will
never leave you forever, but the scenario is just the opposite with the friends.
When there are no benefits in helping you, the friends will be nowhere to be
found! They will avoid you in every possible manner. So, my family is my top
priority.

8. What conflicts can arise between a person’s family and a person’s
friends?

A. There are different issues that can create trouble between you and your
family or you and your friends. Regarding the familial issue, your family
members may guide you to the right way but due to your lack of knowledge, you
may get involved into arguments over the guidance. You may prefer following the
one which appears better to you (although in reality that is not meant for
you).

On the other hand, conflicts with friends may range from any trifling matter
to a major issue like business loss or life or death situation. Family members
are always with the well-wishers or try to make better but the friends are not
always with the same thought to make you feel good unless they have any hidden
benefit with the issue. The common conflict can arise when someone spends most
of his/her time with friends and family members starts complaining about it.

4、稿纸不需要三张一起换

考友评价1:

我住在沈阳的同学家里,考试去和回是搭同学爸的车,所以这次关于住宿问题我就不太清楚了。

街道环境:不是非常好。刚刚入冬,沈阳很冷(我去过最北的地方),注意保暖。

学校环境:比街道好。进去后是在信息技术中心楼,其实就是电脑房的所在地。但是这个楼距离正门很远,而且背对正门,所以多问路人,越早找到越好。

进去是二楼。一楼有一些留学中介的给你塞东西。

写誓言和存东西是在大厅/走廊里,不是一个房间,人很多很吵,早早写好,存包是交给工作人员保管,他会给你一个牌号,吃的东西就放在写誓言的桌子上。厕所在走廊尽头。然后依旧在这个厅排队,一个个进去,拍照的地方就是考试房间。进去以后你会发现这个电脑房特大,并且没有隔间,只是独立座位。隔音效果基本没有。由于我是第一次考,所以无法完全投入,受的干扰更多了。由于是在一个没有隔音的大房间,所以口语答题此起彼伏,一定要全神贯注做自己的题。

考友评价2:

看到过一些介绍沈师B考场的帖子,都有些老了,而且就今天考试来看,和以前T友所描述有些差别,再加上太傻给了我很多帮助,回报下坛子。

B考场在二楼,存包和签到都是在考场右侧的一个大的走廊那,离考场很远,没影响。去那就被要求存包,只有吃的喝的能放在外面。所以想中间休息偷瞄JJ的还是别想了~厕所离考场也就几步远,出门十几秒的事。

存完包,签完到,拿着抄好的表,就能排队了。早排晚排一样,因为都是9:45统一解码(悲催的8:50就进场了,坐到9:45),个人觉得比较好,互相影响比较小,而且对偷听口语没有任何影响(后面叙述)。

进门先拍照,拍照在考场最前面,两个两个同时进行,最前面的几个座位(好像是21号),和另外几个可能会受到晚进考场同学的影响。证件查的不严,一道拍照的一个女生没带学生证也给考了。ETS给的那个什么准考证和号码都不用抄,不查。考场很大,差不多能做90-100人左右。电脑是方正的纯平,耳机是飞利浦的,戴着非常舒服(我差不多整个考试都带着,都没感到耳朵疼,下次买一个在寝室用==),隔音不错,应该是新的,键盘手感不错,总之除了屏幕占点地方,其他的条件不错。每个人之间没有隔断,但是两台机器之间隔了一个桌子多点的过道,只要你旁边的大哥口语不是靠吼得,戴着耳机几乎没有影响。起始发了5张粉色的稿纸,2个铅笔,话说铅笔上蛋疼的印着IELS(吐槽下…..ETS什么时候能出个自己的….)不够了可以找老师要。沈师外国语学院的老师监考,人都挺好,而且外院嘛,大家都知道,美女挺多的哦,今天就看到了个,考前养养眼也不错。

考场管的很松,甚至还有大哥十点多才进场的….==..,不过后进的,机器不够,都加到中间两排最后了,最后面的同学可能会有些影响。中间休息时间没有限制,吃完东西想进来就能进,进来之后,到10分钟了,也没人管你,可以坐在那听个够(前提是能听到,或者偷瞄到,前面的屏幕蛮容易看见的…)想考了,举手示意下,老师来给你解锁。

每日一练

One explanation for the tendency of animals to be more vigilant in smaller
groups than in larger ones assumes that the vigilant behavior-looking up, for
example—is aimed at predators. If individuals on the edge of a group are more
vigilant because they are at greater risk of being captured, then individuals on
aver- age would have to be more vigilant in smaller groups, because the animals
on the periphery of a group form a greater proportion of the whole group as the
size of the group diminishes.

However, a different explanation is necessary in cases where the vigilant
behavior is not directed at predators. J. Krebs has discovered that great blue
herons look up more often when in smaller flocks than when in larger ones,
solely as a consequence of poor feeding conditions. Krebs hypothesizes that the
herons in smaller flocks are watching for herons that they might follow to
better feeding pools, which usually attract larger numbers of the birds.

1. It can be inferred from the passage that in species in which vigilant
behavior is directed at predators, the tendency of the animals to be more
vigilant in smaller groups than in larger ones would most likely be minimized if
which of the following were true?

A. The vigilance of animals on the periphery of a group always exceeded that
of animals located in its interior, even when predators were not in the
area.

B. The risk of capture for individuals in a group was the same, whether they
were located in the interior of the group or on its periphery.

C. Animals on the periphery of a group tended to be less capable of defending
themselves from attack by predators than animals located in the interior of the
group

D. Animals on the periphery of a group tended to bear marks that were more
distinctive to predators than animals located in the interior of the group.

E. Animals on the periphery of a group tended to have shorter life spans than
animals located in the interior of the group.

2. Which of the following best describes the relationship of the second
paragraph to the first?

A. The second paragraph relies on different evidence in drawing a conclusion
similar to that expressed in the first paragraph.

B. The second paragraph provides further elaboration on why an assertion made
at the end of the first paragraph proves to be true in most cases.

C. The second paragraph provides additional information in support of a
hypothesis stated in the first paragraph.

D. The second paragraph provides an example of a case in which the assumption
described in the first paragraph is unwarranted.

E. The second paragraph describes a phenomenon that has the same cause as the
phenomenon described in the first paragraph.

【备考每日练】GRE阅读题之动物的家园图2

3. It can be inferred from the passage that the author of the passage would
be most likely to agree with which of the following assertions about vigilant
behavior?

A. The larger the group of animals, the higher the probability that
individuals in the interior of the group will exhibit vigilant behavior.

B. Vigilant behavior exhibited by individuals in small groups is more
effective at warding off predators than the same behavior exhibited by
individuals in larger groups.

C. Vigilant behavior is easier to analyze in species that are preyed upon by
many different predators than in species that are preyed upon by relatively few
of them.

D. The term “vigilant,” when used in reference to the behavior of animals,
does not refer exclusively to behavior aimed at avoiding predators.

E. The term “vigilant,” when used in reference to the behavior of animals,
usually refers to behavior exhibited by large groups of animals.

4. The passage provides information in support of which of the following
assertions?

A. The avoidance of predators is more important to an animal’s survival than
is the quest for food.

B. Vigilant behavior aimed at predators is seldom more beneficial to groups
of animals than to individual animals.

C. Different species of animals often develop different strategies for
dealing with predators.

D. The size of a group of animals does not necessarily reflect its success in
finding food.

E. Similar behavior in different species of animals does not necessarily
serve the same purpose.

题库传送门:完整版5-8月雅思口语话题题库汇总(范文更新中)

1.Which do you prefer, reading newspapers or magazines?

I would say I prefer newspapers. Newspapers in just ten or eight pages give
you a glimpse of the entire world, including all the sections. From fashion to
the general news to comics to sports to almost everything. In just one
newspaper, you have access to the entire world.

2.What type of stories do you like to read about?

I love reading autobiographies and non-fiction. Autobiographies because they
give a glimpse of lifestyle of a very successful person. You get to know them
when they were the mango people and what they did to become what they became.
Their struggle, the inner story, their point of view and for some reasons I find
it quite exciting. Other than this, I like reading non-fiction.

3.Have you ever read a newspaper or magazine in a foreign language?
[When/Why?]

Yes, all the time. I lived in another country for several years, so reading
in a foreign language was a normal activity for me, not just newspapers and
magazines, but all kinds of documents and literature. I still do it to maintain
my reading skills.

4.Do you think reading a newspaper and magazine can help you learn a
language?

Yes, but it depends on your language level. If you are just beginning to
learn a language then it can be very difficult and frustrating – certainly not
the best way to try and learn a foreign language – but as you progress and
develop your vocabulary it is a good way to learn expressions and phrases
related to common topics in the news and current affairs, or related to a
specific topic in the case of magazines.

5.Why do you think some people prefer magazines to newspapers?

I think the reason might be that magazines are more specific. So, for example
if I am interested in reading about like sports, then a magazine will offer me
better articles and more specific, to be concise. It also de clutters all the
things that one does not wants to read.

6.Which magazines and newspapers do you read (why)?

Answer A) I prefer reading magazines on travel. Being a travel host, it is
very important for me to know about more places and understand them
theoretically, before taking on my camera and team along side. Travel magazine
also help me to understand the perspective of the other person for a same place
that I have also visited. Apart from it, I like fashion magazines as well. Not
for the reasons of fashion, I find them good entertainer when one wants to just
spend time idly.

Answer B) I only read magazines and newspapers if I’m waiting someplace and
they are there, and there is no other alternative. Most of the time, I prefer
doing something on my phone. But, either ways, I like to read sports magazine.
Cars and their engines excite me for the most part. I mean, there are fantastic
cars out there and in magazines, a perfect description is given. Newspapers, I
rarely read. I prefer getting the news on either phone or television.

【托福写作提分】托福写作高分细节 词组复数的合理使用

托福写作中,在很多时候我们都会涉及到一些词组的复数使用形式。但是,想要正确的使用复数形式,不是简简单单的在词后加s就行了。在很多时候,我们还要学会合理的学会合理的使用词组复数,下面就为大家做个详细的分析。

【托福写作提分】托福写作高分细节 词组复数的合理使用图1

举个例子:As you know, in English you generally make a word pluralby adding an ‘s’
at the end. There seems to be some confusion, though, about how to make plurals
of terms made up of more than one word. For example, do you say bicycles shops
or bicycle shops? Do you say power of attorneys or powers of attorney?

如果你要表示自行车商店的复数形式,你是用“bicycles shop”还是“bicycle shops”?在表示授权书的复数时,你是说“power of
attorneys”还是“powers of attorney”?

The answers are bicycle shops and powers of attorney.

正确的说法是“bicycle shops”和“powers of attorney”。

The rule is that you pluralise the “head” of the term.

名词词组复数变化的规则就是:变“重点词”。

The term bicycle shop is typical of most noun groups. The “head” is the last
word in the group. The previous word or words act as an adjective. So the last
word in the group is pluralised. Here are some more examples:

“自行车商店”这个名词词组是一个很典型的例子。在这个词组中,重点词是最后一个词,即商店(shop);前面的词或者词组只是起到了一个形容词的修饰作用而已。因此,在这个词组中,最后一个词变成了复数形式。更多类似的例子:

Bank account => Bank accounts

银行账户

Company car => Company cars

公司用车

Price limit => Price limits

价格限制

Termination notice => Termination notices

终止通知

Service charge payment => Service charge payments

服务费收费

Employee share optionscheme => Employee share option schemes

雇员股份认购权计划

However, a term like power of attorney acts rather differently. Power is the
