  Hometown的口语话题,无论雅思机经怎么变,都会稳稳的呆在Part 1. 而且如果考官要问,肯定也是在很开始的时候发问,所以我们要抓住机会,给雅思考官留下一个好印象,积累一些超常用、超必备素材,把考官拿下!

  What’s (the name of) your hometown?

  是的,他只问了咱从哪来的,但是如果只回答一个词,那么基本就跟高分无缘了,怎么招也得说出完整的话来啊!有下面几个思路可供参考:

  如果考场离咱家不远,可以说:

  XX, which is quite near, only 2/4 hours drive from here.

  也可以指出家乡的地理位置,让考官可以在心里画出来大致的概念:

  XX, which is in the northeast of China.

  如果就是本地的孩子,可以说:

  I’m a local here. 也可以夸张的加一句:I’ve spent my entire life in this city.

  或者说说你家有特色的地方,比如吉林的小朋友可以说:

  XX, which is the only city that has the same name as the province in our country.

  XX, which is the second largest city in our province.

  Is that a big city or a small place?

  如果你的老家不是北上广那种一线城市,你也不住在“这个屯”,那么可以说:

  I’d say it’s … well, relatively small. I mean, … compared with metropolitan cities, like Beijing or New York, it’s definitely quite small, but then again, it’s the second largest city in our province, so you see, it’s not that small.

  如果你再想用具体的fact来更清楚的说明你家乡的大小,也是可以的,例如:

  We don’t even have the subway system or an airport.

  Graduates tend to find a job or start their career elsewhere ‘cause there’s not much job opportunity for them in my hometown.

  How long have you been living there?

  大多数参加雅思考试的娃,可能到了大学才离开自己的家乡去外地求学,所以对于高中生,可以这么讲:

  I was born and raised there, and I’ve never lived in other places, so almost XX years.

  I’ve been living in my hometown since I was born, so basically XX years.

  对于一直在家乡呆到上大学的娃,可以说:

  Well, I’d live there until I went off to college, so XX years.

  Do you like your hometown?

  What do you like (most) about your hometown?

  我们可以从好多方面来夸赞我们的家乡:

  Natural scenery: gorgeous或者river running across the city什么的

  Climate and weather: four distinct seasons, different things to do during each season, snow-covered ground美极了!

  Local snacks/specialities: palatable好吃可口的当地名小吃

  Local people: welcoming/hospitable或者warm-hearted以及耿直的家乡人straightforward

  Transport: easy to get around

  或者再聊聊生活节奏什么的,比如relaxed pace of life, which is a good place for senior citizens.

  用一些句式句型把这些点随便连一连就行了,开头可以讲I have a great affection for my hometown. 然后开始列单子,如果觉得一直用“而且”这种连词没啥新意,可以来个“突出主题”的句式,例如:And the thing I love the most about it is … 或者what I love most about my hometown is …

  Is there anything you dislike about it?

  这道题给了大家足够的空间吐槽家乡,方面有很多,第一个碰到大家脑袋里的就是答案,例如:

  Traffic jams:be stuck in a traffic jam during rush hour

  Air pollution:smog

  Transport:no airport, not convenient for long-distance travel, have to transfer several times before we get to our vacation destination.

  Entertainment:not too many entertainment facilities, it would only take tourists three days at most to try all the fun things worth doing in my hometown.

  最后就是句型穿起来:

  I love everything about it except the fact that …

  I’m not quite happy with XX.

  And another thing I don’t like about my hometown is that …

  Would you say your hometown is a good place to live?

  满意的就不说了,各种夸就对了!不是太满意的,可以用下面的素材:

  Um… not exactly. I mean, It’s not bad because it’s clean, quiet and everything, but I really prefer to live somewhere else ‘cause... I don’t know... maybe it’s just a bit boring for people at my age. For example, there’s very little nightlife and there’s nothing much to do on the weekends besides going to the mall or the Internet café.

  Do you think you will continue living there for a long time?

  如果不想一直留在家乡生活可以说:

  As much as I love my hometown, I don’t think I will. Like I said, … (指出不想留下的原因,或者说说想去什么样的地方)。

  如果就是喜欢在生活节奏安逸的城市呆着,可以说I couldn’t stand the dizzy pace of life/hustle and bustle in those hectic cities. I want to enjoy a high standard of living. 等等。

  按照上面的思路,加入自己的personal feelings和details,相信大家的hometown话题就没啥问题啦!
