    2. “Hence” Hence is like “therefore” - you should only use this if you have written something before and this is continues it. ***************** *Do* we really know what is beautiful? Different people hold different opinions.Some people think beautiful means the appearance,but other s insists a beautiful heart is more critical. Try not to repeat words - it can sometimes work if you want to emphasise a point, but here it just fills up space with words you don’t need. People have different opinions - some think that beautiful means the outward appearance, but to others inner beauty is what is really important. Also “critical” comes from “criticism” - disapproval. A better word would be “crucial” ******************** There is an old saying that the love for attractiveness is native to humans,and this saying actually reflect that means. If you mention an old saying, it’s often better to quote it: “There’s an old saying - “Let sleeping dogs lie”” ...otherwise just say something like: “People often say that...” “It’s commonly thought that...” so: “Many people believe that an appreciation of beauty is a basic human trait.” “An appreciation of beauty is often regarded as one of humanity’s fundamental instincts” ********** On the one hand,It follows,therefore,that most women desire nothing but to look beautiful. “On the one hand” is not appropriate here. It is used in comparisons - the full expression goes something like: “On the one hand, I really like milk, on the other hand I hate cheese.” But you can miss out the first part: “I love music. On the other hand I hate going to concerts!” So, to continue: “As a consequence, most women’s greatest desire is to be beautiful.” “As a result, most women crave beauty” “Being beautiful is most women’s ambition” ************* That is why they are obliged to spend vast sums of money on cosmetics and fashionable clothing.They are interested in nothing but their looks.On the other hand,they should be remained that beauty is a skin-deep. This is pretty good. I’d write it differently, but it wouldn’t be much of an improvement really. “This is the reason that most women feel obliged to spend enormous amounts of money on cosmetics and fashionable clothes. They need to be reminded that beauty is skin-deep. “Obliged” = “have to”, “must” , “got to” Actually, they haven’t got to, they just feel that they have to. “Remained” = “stayed” (spell correction here maybe) ************** As far as I’m concerned,I don’t know whether you have heard the sentence,there’s a common saying in China that wisdom and beauty are equally important,talent and charm as intertwined as one. “As far as I’m concerned” is used when expressing an opinion, possibly in a dismissive or uncaring way. “As far as I’m concerned you can do what you like - It makes no difference to me.” “You may have heard that there’s a common saying in China that wisdom and beauty are equally important, and talent and charm are intertwined as one” Note the difference: “Have you heard that old saying:”Let sleeping dogs lie””. & “Have you heard that old expression about letting sleeping dogs lie” “...talent and charm are intertwined as one” sounds lovely. Very poetic. ******** As a matter of fact,if a beautiful looking person has a heart as malicious as snakes and scorpions,how can other people treat them as beautiful? “As a matter of fact” is usually used to contradict something. “I may look like I come from China, but as a matter of fact I’m actually American!” “If an outwardly attractive person has malice in their heart, how can others see them as beautiful?” I know it’s sort of poetic/dramatic to link scorpions and snakes with malice, but the way I see it they’re just doing their job. But having said that, it’s perfectly acceptable to use it the way you have, but perhaps without repeating “beautiful”. ******** Thus,a wise person knows itself should has a kind hearted and decent looks. Not quite sure how to interpret this. I don’t think you can be saying that to be wise, you need to have a kind heart, AND be good looking. If you still care, say it differently and I’ll see if I can give you a better way to say it. XA

    2. The debate over whether university education should prepare students for employment or help students acquire theoretical knowledge has continued for years. I believe that the magnitude (importance?) of acquiring theoretical knowledge in college is superior over preparing students for employment. In terms of substantive level, the reason mentioned below seems to be advisable and deserve more consideration. First and foremost, it is equally true that we are in the optimum stage of study, which is inclusive of our patience and diligence. Owing to the employment is an empricial thing that students enable reaping increasingly advantageous experience by themselves rather than systematically received avid knowledge concerning employment from university education. Accordingly, we ought to exert ourselves to learn professional knowledge. Further, there is a more subtle point we must consider. Learning knowledge about our major is an exceptionally integral part during our college years that will lay down a substantial foundation for any future work. Only if we press forward on ourselves specialized knowledge can we mitigate those corresponding problems and consolidate our professional ability. ~ Many people argue that learning employment skills are just as important, or even more important, than learning theoretical knowledge. Doing hands-on tasks and applying the knowledge that has been learnt in lectures and classes means that after college ends and students enter the real world to look for a job, they will be able to show a potential employer that they have learnt these skills and are a good candidate for a job.~ To sum up, ~learning both theoretical knowledge and employment skills is important, but the interplay between these two fields can be what has the best result.~ My opinion is also leaning towards enhancing individual theoretical knowledge as to your major in university is better than preparing for employment. (你可以在这里深入解释你的意见) Whether my point of view is correct or incorrect is a difficult question to answer, yet the comfort or convenience it brings will not be eliminated. 我正在使用翻译应用程序,对不起,如果它没有意义。 我的中文是不好 😂
