You will be asked to give your opinion about a familiar topic on TOEFL exams, for example: Some people enjoy taking risks and trying new things. Others are not adventurous; they are cautious and prefer to avoid danger. Which behavior do you think is better?
I think that both of these personality traits have their strengths and weaknesses. Those who like taking risks get to learn and experience many new things. This is not always positive. Sometimes they experience physical injury or emotional pain. But, they also have many more opportunities to learn and grow. Those who are more cautious tend to pick and choose what experiences they have so they can avoid a lot of negative consequences. However, I feel like they have less opportunities for experiences because they carefully filter what they attempt.
There are two main subject markers in Japanese. Written in romaji as "ga" and "wa." When should you use each of these markers?
"Ga" is used in connection with many words so it is easiest to recognize how to use it when these words are memorized. It is a second subject marker used when you are using another noun as the subject. "Wa" is used when you are referencing a noun as the main subject receiving/doing an action.

How did the spread of Confucianism reach countries throughout East Asia and what where its effects?
Confucianism began in China and as China began to expand its empire, the influence of Confucianism spread to Korea and Japan. Today, Confucianism is most prominent in Korea where values like filial piety are deeply ingrained into the natural thought process of everyday life. Japan has this to a great extent as well but Buddhism became the major religious influence overpowering Confucianism while allowing key elements of it to remain and become integrated into the teachings of Buddhism.
