  点击查看>>>>近期雅思口语高频话题

  Photography算是雅思口语里Part 1的元老了,就算在Part 2也是经常考的,什么“自拍”啊,“interesting photo”啊,“在家里的一张照片”啊,等等。很多孩子感觉这个雅思口语topic下的题目都挺难,于是想到了在第一题就回答“No, 我不喜欢照相!”想要把噩梦扼杀在摇篮里。

  不过,经过不止一位考生回忆,有些考官貌似没太听我们讲话,或者太过于死板偏要按照题卡上面的问题一道道来,或者情商低不太会唠嗑吧…… 总之,在听到“no”的答案过后,雅思考官还是有可能继续问“你多久照一次相”“喜欢照人还是照风景”这种让你匪夷所思的问题的。

  总之,“say no”逃避问题是没有用的!(并不是说不准说no啊,对于有的题目,比如比较剧烈的运动啥的,你身体状况不允许,一蹦跶心脏就不行了,当然得说“不”啊)想要灵活的答题,无论考官多不按套路出牌都可以应对,那么就安心的积累语料吧!希望下面的素材可以给大家个参考:

  1. Do you like to take photographs? Why or why not?

  摄影爱好者可以说:

  Yeah! I’m a big fan of it. Whenever I go travelling or see something interesting or hilarious that I want to share with others, I would take out my phone and click! I just find it a perfect way to capture precious moments and record unforgettable experiences, you know, the places I’ve been to, the things I’ve done, and stuff like that.

  不是很感冒的人可以说:

  Well, not really, mostly because I’m not very skillful. No one wants to be model, ‘cause they always look either too fat or too short in my pictures.

  2. Do you prefer to take photos yourself or to have other people take photos? And why?

  现在这个时代,让别人照相是个多没有安全感的事情啊……

  Well, I prefer taking selfies,’cause to be honest, I’m not very photogenic, I always look horrible in pictures. However, when I take selfies, I could adjust the angle before I take the picture, (此处应有body language) and the best part is I could touch it up later in some beauty Apps, so that I could make sure every one of my selfies looks fabulous.

  3. How long have you liked taking photography?

  Wow, it’s been a while. I couldn’t remember exactly when I first started to show an interest in photography. I could only recall that back then, people were still using cameras with films, you know. So you could tell it’s a long time ago.

  4. How (why) did you become interested in photography?

  Well, I guess I could fall in love with photography all because of my mom. She gave me a second-hand camera when I was little, and she even signed up for a class for me. Honestly I don’t remember anything I learned in that class, but obviously that’s a good start, I mean, it sparked my interest.

  5. How often do you take photographs?

  Pretty much every day. I mean, taking pictures with smart phones is incredibly convenient. Whenever I see something funny or unusual, I would take a picture and post it online to share with my friends.

  6. In what situations do you take photographs?

  每个人的点可能就不太一样啦,以下场合随便选几个吧:

  Special occasions like wedding ceremony, graduation party or birthday parties.

  A funny sign on the road. 有时候路牌或指示牌也会挺逗的。

  An interesting license plate of a car. 看到好玩儿的车牌号也要拍拍啦。

  Before having a hearty dinner. 吃饭前先把手机喂饱再说。

  Travel. 旅行不拍照,你干嘛去了…… (妈妈的观点)

  7. What kind of photos do you like to take? (Why?)

  Well, if you check out my camera roll, you would most likely see pictures of inviting food, my silly cat, my friends and I making funny faces/make hilarious facial expressions and things like that. And most of them were taken when I went travelling. Like I said, photos are used to record things, and they are like reminders. Every time I look at those pictures, I would think of the trip I took, the time I spent in a particular place and the people I had fun with.

  8. Do you prefer to take pictures of people or of scenery?

  喜欢拍人的,可以跟Who do you take photos of?合并答案:

  I prefer taking pictures of people, especially of my boyfriend, the reason for that is fairly simple, they tell more stories, like where we were and what we were doing. Pictures of scenery can be boring sometimes, plus I’m not an expert, I couldn’t take fascinating pictures just like the ones in National Geographic, sometimes I just do it for fun.

  9. How do you keep your photos? Do you keep your photographs on your computer?

  Um… I keep them in my phone, and a backup copy on the iCloud. I don’t keep my photos on my computer ‘cause there’s not enough storage in my computer disk.

  10. Are there any photos on the walls of your home?

  No, my mom doesn't allow us to hang anything on the wall, ‘cause that would involve drilling a hole in the wall, which could destroy her original design or decoration. And sometimes the glue on the wall won’t come off easily, which leaves ugly and disturbing stains. So… we don’t have photos on the wall.

  当然大家也可以说Yeah, there’s a family photo on the wall of our living room.

  11. Do you frame (or have you framed) any of your photos? (If yes, which? and why?)

  Yeah, there’s a framed photo of me and my mom on my nightstand. Actually she printed it out and got it framed, ‘cause she looks gorgeous in that picture, and it was the first time we took a trip together, only the two of us. So you see, it’s quite memorable.

  12. Do you prefer to send postcards to people or to send photos that you took yourself? (Why?)

  Well, to be honest, I never send postcards or photos to anyone, but if I had to choose between the two, I’d prefer…

  postcards, ‘cause pictures on postcards are all taken by experts and professionals, I don’t think I can top them. Plus, it sounds too much effort to send photos taken by myself, I mean, I need to print it out first and everything, it’s just a little waste of time.

  如果你特别文青有情怀还是专家,那么咱就说下面的:

  photos that I took myself, ‘cause they are one of a kind, truly special and can best express my feelings. They are definitely more worth keeping than postcards that are mass-produced.

  反正无论答案说什么,给考官一种you are willing to talk,而且you are able to speak at length的感觉就好了!加油!
