重点词汇、短语：practical，get xxx ready for
I would say that the courses offered in universities should be more practical,specifically, they should get students ready for future jobs and increase students’future job opportunities.
重点词汇、词组：make it accessible to ，cost of living, textbooks and skyrocketing tuitions
I would say the decision makers should figure out a way to reduce the cost tertiary education and make it accessible to everyone. Currently, our universities and colleges are super expensive, the cost of living, textbooks and skyrocketing tuitions, all these combined makes it hard for lots of brilliant kids to receive higher education.
重点词汇、词组：not be motivated to 没有动力做某事， be into 非常喜欢，be given to chance to do s/th, be based on 基于
Personally, I think government should make it easier for student to choose their majors. Currently, it is very hard, if not impossible for lots of average students to choose popular majors like economics, finance and accounting, cuz you have to get a really high score in college entrance exam. As known to all, one might not be motivated to do something unless he or she is really into that, students should be given to chance to choose majors they are interested in and it shouldn’t be based on exam scores, thus they will better employ their creativity and imagination and be more likely to be successful in college.

· The utmost purpose of education is to impart knowledge and cultivate practical skills so that the students can be successful in their future career, like to become physicians, pilots, professors, architects, even engineers.
· Tertiary education(高等教育) provides students with the tools and skills that are essential for them to be successful in their future career.
培养道德情操、求实精神：develop morality and values to live a good life and build up character to seek the truth
Another important function of university is to develop morality and cultivate values to live a decent life and help the students to build up character, and to seek the truth, and I think these qualities are very important to have in order to be a mature person.
帮助学生吸收知识、协助成长： the exploration of knowledge, to help students grow, to make men complete, explore our utmost ability, constant simulation, makes us understand things better
重点词汇、词组：noble cause光荣的使命，lead xxx on the path of, well-rounded全面的, constant simulation 不断的刺激
The noble cause of higher education is to lead students on the path of the exploration of knowledge, and help them to grow in to a more well rounded and compete person. You know, human beings need constant simulation to grow or it will die, university helps us to explore our utmost ability and makes us understand things better.
重点词组：people from all walks of life, prestigious, be accessible/available to anyone, fairness, social status, underprivileged 弱势群体，climb up social ladder
I would say that higher education should be available to people from all walks of life, as prestigious Chinese philosopher Confucius said: education should be received by anyone no matter what their social status are. Suppose higher education is available only to the rich, then only the rich will be likely to succeed and then the underprivileged will never get a chance to climb up the social ladder, that is not fair.
