出典は、“Helping Your Students Communicate With Confidence”というETS作成のTOEFL iBT教師用ティーチングマニュアルからです。

(ただこのマニュアル、TOEFL iBT開始前に作成されたもので、内容の多くが現在の本試験の傾向にあっていません。それでもTOEFLを教えている人には参考になるところも多いでしょう。TOEFL自主学習には不向きです。)



Read the question below. You have 30 minutes to plan, write, and revise your essay. Typically, an effective essay will contain a minimum of 300 words.



Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship.

It depens on the case, for me there are certean levels of truth, the total and partial. For me the total truth is always the best way to solve a problem, if there is a solution. By having all the elements a person can have all idea of what to do. For example, if some one is on a trial you have to tell you layer all the information in order to win or at list the fight well, if not the person can will come with diferent stores by excluding information.

Now telling a partial truth you are trying to help the people without hurting them, for example, when a friend ask us if she is fat, and she actually weigths 90 kilos, you wont answer, yes you are as fat as a cow, bewcause you will break her fillings, so you just need to be sutil and friendle, and responder her that, it isn’t something that it cannot be fixed, and you can probablie offer her help.

By presenting my arguments the best way to keep a relationship between persons is to think what kind of truth are you going to choose and after that you have to thing the right words to express that information that you are going to say.
