Students often like to study with others in a group. What do you think are the benefits of group study?
Actually, I am a big fan of group study. It greatly facilitates my interpersonal skills by granting more chances to talk with other members. You know, I used to be a very shy and introverted person. However, the group study that I was involved in for different subjects enables me discuss various topics such as ways to solve a particular math problem. In addition, group study enhances my efficiency and offers me broader views. For instance, once I and other members of economics class prepared for a research paper. If I had worked alone, it is very likely that it would have taken me 10 more days to gather related materials and 2 weeks to finish it. Nevertheless, with collective efforts, the whole group spent no more than a week to accomplish the paper.
我们可以看到官方真题Official32第一题独立口语中，考的话题是关于group study。在历年考试中，group study并不是一个罕见的话题。接下来，我们就来一个有点类似的独立口语第二题。
Do you prefer to study alone on work assignment from class or to study in groups?
和官方真题Official32中的这道题的话题都会围绕group study展开。但是区别在于官方真题Official 32中明确让考生围绕group study的好处来进行回答，而在历年的这道考题当中，是让学生作出选择。虽然形式不同，但是完全可以用相同的答案来回答这两道看上去不一样的题目。
当然，考生们除了可以关注group study相关的话题，还可以关注一些和group activity相关的话题。答案套路完全可以借鉴针对官方真题Official32的task 1给出的答案。都可以强调group study里面谈及的benefits,亦或者进行类似的模仿。
我们来看看这样一个example: Do you prefer to celebrate your birthday alone, or with a lot of friends?
针对这样的一个话题，我们可以模仿enables me to discuss various topics这样的观点。针对celebrate birthday这样一个activity, 如果考生也选择和很多人共同完成，那么就可以说enables me to play various games等等这样的观点来进行套用。同学们可以发现，无论话题怎样变换，我们都可以利用我们曾经准备过的一些观点库，来进行模仿，编改。
Do you prefer to make decision alone, or with the help from you family members or friends?
Do you prefer to travel alone, or travel in a group?
Do you prefer to live by yourself, or live with others?
