  之前跟大家介绍过利用网络资源助力雅思口语考试,今天再跟大家唠叨一下如何利用维基百科来整理出有关雅思口语名人的话题答案。

  基本上所有的名人都可以在Wikipedia上找到简介,就跟百度百科一样,只不过人家的介绍是英文的啊,超级方便啊,因为可以直接整合到口语答案中去啊!

  我们来举两个例子,一位是袁隆平老爷子,另一位是宫崎骏先生。(这两位是不是都可以用到“有着重要工作的人”呀!)

  首先来看袁老爷子,口语中可以这样说:

  I’d like to talk about Yuan Longping, a Chinese agriculture scientist and educator who developed the first hybrid rice varieties about 40 years ago, so the Chinese media sometimes calls him the Father of Hybrid Rice.

  As far as I know, he was born in an era of wars, so he moved with his family and attended school in many places during his childhood. He first came up with the idea of developing the hybrid rice when a series of natural disasters struck China, which caused unprecedented deaths.

  After years of research, his team successfully cultivated a type of hybrid rice species that had great advantages over common ones. Due to his hard work and devotion, China’s total rice output rose dramatically, which solved the biggest problem in China back then. And this hybrid rice has been grown in dozens of countries in Africa, America and Asia, which saved millions of people who suffer from famine.

  And right now he’s working on the research and development of genetically modified food, hoping to benefit more people.

  So as you can see, without him, China wouldn’t be able to feed its people in the poverty-stricken areas. When natural disaster strikes, people no longer have to starve, feeling desperate. That’s why I think his job is really important to our society.

  再来看看下面这位有着一颗童心的老小孩儿:

  I’d like to talk about Hayao Miyazaki, who’s a world-renowned Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter and animator. He’s a masterful storyteller and he has attained international acclaim as a manga artist. One of his animated films Spirited Away became the first anime film to win an American Academy Award.

  His films often have profound themes, like humanity’s relationship with nature and technology.

  I think his job is really important to the society because his films inspired people in different generations. He created a magic world for both adults and children, in which people believe in love, compassion and friendliness. I strongly believe that this has a positive effect on his audience’s attitude toward life, especially for children during their formative years. The main characters in his films are always strong, independent girls, many of whom have been regarded as role models.

  Miyazaki has become a household name and his movies are well liked around the world. So I think the positive energy from his work can have a long-lasting effect on the society.

  下次大家再碰到自己“心仪”的名人,却不太了解他们的生平事迹或者官方的称号,不妨动手查一下维基百科,说不定里面的素材,就直接变成大家的答案了呢!(不过百科上的内容毕竟是书面文体,所以请大家要有针对性的筛选,不要直接照搬哦!大家加油!)
