  雅思口语里最近问道不同意别人的一个决定。想想同学们最常经历的argument,可能都是跟父母发生的吧… 尤其是在那一段teenage years, 父母的什么决定在我们看来貌似都是错的。所以,如果大家还记得当年发生的小争执,不妨拿出来跟雅思考官分享一下。

  除了真实的故事,我们还可以根据现实经历改编,毕竟考官不在乎我们到底跟谁起过争执,根据故事梗概添上精彩的情节,就会满足考试要求的时间了:

  This topic reminds me of a decision I made a year ago when I decided to drop out of college and follow my own path, not the crowd. After I told my decision to my parents, they just freaked out, and they were strongly against it. They told me the importance of a decent degree when it comes to hunting for jobs in China, and they insisted that I should finish college no matter what.

  But the thing is, my college is located in a remote area, I mean, an underdeveloped city. I couldn’t see my future in this city. I want to work in a vibrant city, you know, like Shanghai or Beijing. But the city I was studying in was nothing like that and it couldn’t offer me what I want.

  If I stayed there for four years, I would end up being an ordinary person, with no dreams, no ambition and no bright future. Well, I understand my parents’ decision and I can’t blame them, ‘cause they are pretty traditional and conservative. In their opinion, a girl is supposed to follow a certain lifestyle. For example, graduate from college, find a steady job, get married and start a family. But to me, that is not living, that is just not dying. I want to lead a life that’s worth living, you know.

  So I just ignored my parents’ strong objection, and went ahead with my plan. I took a gap year trying to figure out what I truly want to do with my life, and now I started to apply to universities abroad, so here I am.

  雅思口语语言点解析:

  drop out of something = to leave school, college, etc. without finishing your studies 例如:

  She started a degree but dropped out after only a year.

  辍学的人叫做dropout (a person who leaves school or college before they have finished their studies) 例如:

  a university with a high dropout rate

  这里要区分drop out和flunk out的区别:

  flunk out of something = to have to leave a school or college because your marks/ grades are not good enough 有种“被劝退”的赶脚,例如:

  He flunked out of college after four semesters.

  the crowd = ordinary people, not special or unusual in any way 例如:

  We all like to think we stand out from the crowd.

  He prefers to be one of the crowd.

  She’s quite happy to follow the crowd.

  freak = if somebody freaks or if something freaks them, they react very strongly to something that makes them suddenly feel shocked, surprised, frightened, etc. 例如:

  My parents really freaked (out) when they saw my hair.

  Snakes really freak me out.

  hunt for something = to look for something that is difficult to find 例如:

  She is still hunting for a new job.

  the thing is = used to introduce an important fact, reason or explanation 例如:

  I’m sorry my assignment isn’t finished. The thing is, I’ve had a lot of other work this week.

  vibrant = full of life and energy = exciting 例如:

  Thailand is at its most vibrant during the New Year celebrations.

  go ahead with something = to begin to do something, especially when somebody has given permission or has expressed doubts or opposition 例如:

  The government intends to go ahead with its tax cutting plans.

  gap year = a year that a young person spends working and/or travelling, often between leaving school and starting university 例如:

  I’m planning to take a gap year and go backpacking in India.
