Unformatted text preview: 第7章 如何写出一个漂亮的结尾 自传的结尾一段,可以说是文章中最为短小的一段,是对全文的总结,它是对前面 内容的简洁概述和最终升华。一般来讲不宜再出现新的、令人感到突兀的内容。一般来 说,在这一部分里,您需要言简意赅地表达出您在文章中介绍的自己,是全面的,同申 请的要求是密切相关的,告诉教授们,您在所选领域深造的打算是坚定的、有信心的, 并且将在自己设定的人生目标、人生经验、获得的教训、各项准备等基础上以积极的心 态去迎接新的挑战、希望和梦想,最终在某某学校实现进一步的成功。您还可以提到对 于进入某校深造的急切盼望,对于教授们花时间阅读您的申请文书和考虑深表感谢等。 总之,这应当是简略的一段,是文章能否打动教授,给他们留下印象的最后一个机会。 下面用几个实例具体说明可能的几种写法。 7.1 开头与结尾呼应型 结尾部分再提一提开头介绍部分提到的话,有助于营造文章的整体平衡感。如果您 在开头部分很有创意地介绍了一件轶事,那么最好能在结尾重提一下,作为一个完整的 结束语。请看: 文章开头 It was a cold gloomy night. I must have been woken up by the howling wind bashing against the fragile window next to my bed. Frightened by the flood surging into our house, I dashed into my mom’s arms the moment I heard her anxiously calling my name. That night, my warm and sweet home was forever gone with the rushing river. I was eight years old. I was desperate. Later, we moved to HHH City, known as one of the “Four Ancient Towns of China”. In our history class, I learned that Foshan was built in 214 B.C. Many sites and architectures are 成功留学文书写作必备 famous for their historic, scientific, and artistic values. Unfortunately, due to inappropriate urban planning, a lot of historical sites were destroyed over the years. The remaining ones are also losing their historical value as more and more modern structures are improperly built next to the ancient ones. It was in that class that I first learned what “urban planning” means and it was in that class I heard that my home would not have been flushed away if basic urban planning theory had been applied. 文章结尾 My dream is to comprehend the urban thinking of the West; understand the urban concepts of ancient China; bring the West and the East together to influence China’s contemporary urban planning policy—a policy that addresses and solves issues like historic preservation and restoration, redevelopment of old city areas, modern urban ecology and quality of living, and regional growth and coordination. My dream is to become a responsible and knowledgeable urban planner so that no eight-year old child will ever wake up in the middle of the night to find his or her home taken away by the flood; so that generations from now, children of HHH City, can proudly renew the wisdom of their heritage that goes back to 214 B.C. 点评 文章以八岁孩子目睹大水把家冲走的可怕经历和对房屋安全的渴求,以所 居住的城市里,不良的城市规划破坏历史建筑的现实使自己意识到保护古建筑 的重要性和城市规划的科学性开头,带出了自己选择城市规划作为深造的专业 的原因。结尾重新提到了孩提时被大水冲走的房子和被破坏的历史古迹,借此 更表达出了作者愿意结合自己的事业设计目标,对自己所选择的专业孜孜以求 的决心。也使文章显出圆满的呼应。 7.2 结尾积极展开计划型 一般这种类型的结尾总要阐述您在获得录取后,将怎样努力使您的奋斗目标和在该 校的学习研究具体地结合起来,使您向着您的人生目标成功地走向更高的一个台阶。请 ·96· 第 1 部分 自 传 看以下范例: 范例 1 Desiring for more vigorous research environment and new challenges in my favorite field, I decide to apply for acceptance into your graduate program. Aside from studying computer process control, I am also eager to research more on the manufacturing process and inspection technology in quality control. I am confident that the distinguished, accessible faculties and the advanced research facilities of ME in your university will provide me with wonderful guidance and environment I need to hit the ground running in Mechanical Engineering and Automation disciplines. My strong motivation and research potential, as well as my leadership and organizational skills developed from my teaching experience would make me a competitive candidate for a position in your graduate program. My ultimate goal is to gain in-depth knowledge in advanced manufacturing technology and apply it to resolve existing and potential problems in China. 点评 此文的作者讲到了将来到校后要学的几个方面: computer process control 是 一方面,另一方面还要学 manufacturing process and inspection technology in quality control,并重申了自己在此行业大干一番的动力、决心和将来毕业后的计划。 范例 2 I am confident in a successful completion of the expected study and research at your school. The academically and spiritually rich learning environment at your graduate school, together with guidance of renowned faculty and convenient access to sophisticated experiment facilities, will facilitate my hard work and lead me to step on a higher level towards my personal career goals. I sincerely hope that the admission committee will grant me a most favorable consideration, which is greatly appreciated in advance. 点评 作者简明扼要地提到了自己的信心,并表示决心在新的学校里多多利用优 ·97· 成功留学文书写作必备 良的学习科研条件,更加刻苦地学习,使事业更上一层楼,并感谢和期待评委 们对申请人给予慎重的考虑。 ·98· 第 1 部分 自 传 7.3 格言结尾型 运用此类结尾要比较小心,因为用格言来结尾往往是众人喜欢的方式。招生委员已 经从无数的申请信中念到过太多的格言,如果您的格言、俗语或座右铭比较牵强或太普 通,或不具备很强的说服力,那么宁可不用。如果格言非常切合文中的思想,水到渠成, 读来一气呵成,那就值得写了。请看下面例子: The most beautiful scene always locates on the most challenging peaks, as said our Chairman Mao. Having experienced the twists and turns in my academic career, now I am breathing the freshest air in my life. All I have experienced are only the preparations for my future study and work. To become a mature economist, under my contemplation and the advice of several professors, I haver realized the need for more advanced training in a broader theoretical framework. That is why I have chosen your program for further study. With the confidence in my ability and the self-motivation, I hope that, upon the completion of my study with you, I will be able to contribute more to the topics that are essential to the economic development of China and the entire world. 点评 做学问如登峰,历尽艰辛之后的成就感、喜悦感,就如同观看高山之顶的 美丽风光。对于这一点教授们是深有体会的。虽然比喻是旧比喻,但却是对西 方人而言神秘而了不起的人物毛泽东的名言,具有领袖的魅力。用在这里还是 有分量的。 7.4 升华结尾型 这种类型的结尾通常会把自己的理念升华至更高的层次,让文章的主题有一个更深、 更广的空间,让招生委员会更有滋味地去品味申请人的真实的生活和理想。请看下例: ·99· 成功留学文书写作必备 In the era of inevitable school system reform in China, my short term goal is to receive more rigorous and complete graduate training in your school. Through the whole graduate program of education, I expect to emancipate myself from my established traditional ways of thinking by my profound penetrations into human psychology, behavioral sciences, culture, management and so forth. I plan to gradually transform myself into a thoughtful, informed, well educated school leader, in order to realize my ultimate dream of establishing a school in China based on a new model and of a certain scale. Your full consideration and expected acceptance will pave the way on my realizing my dreams, and I am looking forward to your most favorable reply. 点评 作者在结尾时把她申请的理念升华了,也就是把教育管理这个将要深造的 专业放置在中国教育改革势在必行的背景下。然后叙述了自己将准备通过各学 科的深入学习来积累知识,解放已有的传统思维方式,最终让自己具备各项素 质,来实现建立中国新型教育模式的教育机构的个人理想。写得既有气势,又 有内容。 ·100· ...
