Certificate Craze On Campus

In recent years, getting a certificate has become a new craze among college students. [1]Just randomly ask a student on campus what he or she is busy doing, [2]quite possibly, you may get the answer [3]that he or she is preparing for a certificate [2]of some kind. [4]Why does this craze appear?

[4]There are mainly two reasons behind this phenomenon. First, [5]it is the employment pressure that forces colleqe students to get more certificates. With the admission expansion of colleges, a lot more graduates have to face the fierce competition in the job market. How can one make himself more competitive? More certificates at hand, maybe. Second, diploma and certificates are still important standards [6]by which many employers measure a person’s ability. In order to increase the qualifications for a job, the students compel themselves to run from one exam to another.

[7]From my point of view, we should be more rational [8]when it comes to certificates, [9]since certificates [2]do not necessarily prove one’s ability. Being crazy in getting certifications blindly is [10]nothing but wasting time. To conclude, we should focus on improving our ability [10]but not getting a certificate of no practical value.

【亮点点评】
[1]祈使句使用恰当。randomly意为“随意地,随机地”。
[2]限定词使用恰当,使文章表达更严谨,增强了说服力。
[3]that引导同位语从句,修饰the idea。
[4]设问句引出原因,容易引起注意。
[5]强调句型,此处是强调主语。
[6]which引导非限制性定语从句,充当介词宾语。
[7]用于引出“我”的观点。
[8]“当谈到或提及…时”。
[9]since引导原因状语从句,表示既定的原因,常译为“既然”。
[10]“只是,仅仅”。“而不是”。
