Sample Answer 1

With regard to this topic, I would like to talk about the rule against violence in my university, which I think is of absolutely importance in the school setting.

The rule makes it clear that any school violence, including intentional injury, assaulting, bullying or physical punishment, should be subject to punishment on campus and if the case is really serious, the committers would also receive judgement from according to the criminal laws.

It is fairly crucial to safeguard students’ security at school and prevent any forms of violence from happening.

Universities are like societies but just on a small-scale.

Students face people from different backgrounds and I have to admit not all students bear with good purposes.

It is human nature to bully the weak ones and stay away from the strong.

If there are no related rules to ban students from this kind of conduct, the students who are teased and taken advantage of may suffer from mental illnesses and this can severely influence their life.

In my opinion, this is a very good rule.

What needs to be done is that the school party should make more efforts to supervise students conducts so that we know the rule is strictly carried out and people conducting violence will not get away.

Sample Answer 2

In my school, there is a very important rule, which is “Keep the campus clean”. This rule requires students to maintain a clean and tidy environment on the campus and not to litter casually.

If someone violates this rule, the school will provide corresponding education and warnings. At the same time, the person involved will be required to personally clean up the litter they have thrown, as a warning.

I think this is a very important rule because a clean campus environment directly affects the quality of learning and life. A clean and tidy campus can enhance students’ motivation to learn and their sense of well-being. It also contributes to the beautification and environmental protection efforts on campus.

Personally, I strongly agree with this rule. I believe that keeping the campus clean is the responsibility of every student and a sign of respect for our shared learning environment. I will actively abide by this rule, and occasionally, I will even voluntarily participate in some campus cleaning activities to contribute my share to creating a better learning atmosphere.

1. What rules should children follow at home in your country?

Well, in my neck of the woods, it’s common for kids to follow a few household rules.

First up, respect for elders is paramount. It’s kind of a cultural thing; always greet them, listen when they speak, that sort of thing.

A lot of parents also have a no shoes-inside policy to keep the house spick and span.

And let’s not forget the age old curfew! Be it on school nights or weekends, parents like to set a time for their kiddos to be home, safe and sound.

Screen time is another battleground; many parents set limits on how long their kids can glue their eyes to TVs or tablets.

2. On what occasions can children be forgiven if they don’t follow some rules?

Well, sometimes kids can get away with breaking a few rules if it’s a genuine mistake or they didn’t know about the rule to begin with.

Additionally, if a child is going through a rough patch, like dealing with personal issues or feeling super stressed, people tend to be more understanding.

But you know, it all depends on the specific rule and how old and responsible the child is.

3. What rules should people follow when using public transport?

Riding the public transit? There’s an unwritten code!

Priority seats are for the elderly, pregnant, or differently-abled folks.

It’s a no-brainer to stand clear of the doors and let passengers exit before hopping on.

Blaring music without headphones? That’s a no-go. Keeping conversations at a reasonable volume and not taking up extra seats with bags are just basic etiquette.

Oh, and these days, maintaining hygiene, like using hand sanitizers and wearing masks, has become the new norm on many transport modes.

4. What kinds of rules do people need to follow in public places?

Out in public, there are some rules to keep things running smoothly.

You should throw your trash in the proper bins, avoid messing up things, and use designated smoking areas if you smoke.

There are also rules about noise, limits on large gatherings, and guidelines for using stuff like skateboards or bikes – those sorts of rules.

5. When people break rules, how would they be punished in your country?

Ah, penalties vary depending on the rule in question.

For minor infractions, like traffic violations, there might be a fine to cough up. Some places even have community service as a way to pay back for misdemeanors.

But for more severe violations? We’re talking legal repercussions, court dates, maybe even some time behind bars.

On the social front, breaking cultural or societal norms can sometimes lead to a bit of a cold shoulder from the community or some intense side-eye from the neighbors.
