实例1：Watch a movie at theatre or watch the movie at home, which one do you prefer?
要在电影院看电影，还是在家看电影之间做选择。从个人感受来想，大家多数可能都会选择去电影院看电影，但是除了说big screen，或者永远也不知道怎么用英文表示的“热闹”之外，大家就不知道再怎么继续说下去了。其实，不妨从Time & Money方面来考虑，我们是否能把话题说的更具逻辑性和更具体呢?
Time - watch the movie at home.
I prefer to watch the movie at home because of the matter of time. I mean, watching movies at theatre is time-consuming. Once, when I planned to watch the movie at cinema, I have to reach there at least one hour in advance. What’s more, for those box office movies, I have to wait a long queue to get the ticket and wait until the beginning of the movie.
Money - helps to save money.
在家看省钱。不出家门，就能看到电影。而去电影院看电影，路上要花钱pay for the transport，买票要花钱fees for tickets，看电影还要带着点零食和饮料money spend on snacks and beverages，这样一罗列，确实在家能省好多。
Another reason is the matter of cost. I mean, watching at theatre costs more than at home. To be more specific, I have to pay for the transport and there are fees for tickets. Sometimes, I have to spend money on snacks and beverages. So I think watching at home is a more cost-effective way.
实例2：Celebrate the birthday in holding a party or celebrate the birthday quietly, which one do you prefer?
要我们在办生日party和一个人默默无闻地过生日之间进行选择。如果大家选择办个party，理由1. 热闹 2. 礼物。那我们如何快速地从时间和成本的角度想呢?
省时间 — 一个人过
I prefer to celebrate the birthday alone because of the problem of time. You know, as a university student, in addition to the academic work, I have joined in lots of school clubs. Every day, I have a tight schedule. What’s more, in order to holding a party, I have to design and decorate the place ahead of time, which will, all cost lots of time.
成本低 — 一个人过
Another reason is that holding a party costs lots of money. I mean, I have to rent a place which can accommodate all my friends. What’s more, the food and decoration can also be a burden for the freshman who does not have income like me. It is better to celebrate quietly.同样，我们把时间和成本整合起来就可以对我们的话题进行完整描述了。
实例3：Take a real trip or trip virtually by reading the books and articles, which one do you prefer?
I prefer to virtually take the trip. Because it is a very economical way which can save me lots of money. To be more specific, I do not have to pay for the transport on the road, entrance tickets to the tourist attraction or even the accommodation. Instead, I only need to buy the book from the store or borrow them from the library. It will not cost as much as the real trip.
Furthermore, by reading the books or articles, we are able to save lots of time. Say, within half a day, we can finish our trip to Paris and Tokyo by buying the books from the book store or borrowing them from the library. Also, usually, we need an extra week or several days to adjust ourselves after the real trip. But by means of reading, it will not cost us too much time to do the adjustment.
