  有多少人的前任是在雅思口语里发挥余热的!各种没有头绪的话题,只要一想到“前任”,瞬间思绪泉涌,止都止不住!

  就比如“别人做的你不同意的决定”,就可以说“男朋友不想分手”但是你不同意!再比如“做过的最艰难的决定”就可以是“跟前男友分手”,等等等等。

  那开头就可以是“Well, this topic reminds me of my ex. The relationship between us had been on the rocks, but he still didn’t want to break up. The thing is, I see no point staying in the relationship ‘cause there’s no way things could work out.”如果是艰难的决定呢,就说“Breaking up with my ex is the toughest decision I’ve ever made.”

  然后就继续跟考官开始狗血小说的剧情吧:

  We had been going out for 10 years. We were high school sweethearts, and we even survived a 7-year long distance relationship. We didn’t broke up because we stopped loving each other, in fact, he’s already like family to me. But somehow, as we grew older, we just kind of grew apart. We started to have different values, and want different things in life. For example, he’s a workaholic. Sometimes I couldn’t reach him for days. But ironically, he’s also a traditional man who wants to settle down and start a family soon. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Are you sure you are mentally and physically ready for this?’ I mean, who wants a husband that’s nowhere to be found?

  So we started to have this big fight and I just thought, maybe we needed to take a break and figure out what we truly want.

  To be honest, things were not easy at first, I was heartbroken, and all those flashbacks were killing me. But gradually, I realized perhaps it’s for the best. I mean, if we want different things in life, we wouldn’t be happily married. And I turned out to be more independent after the breakup. So I guess, maybe I’m better off without him.

  知识点解析:

  on the rocks = a relationship or business that is on the rocks is having difficulties and is likely to fail soon 例如:

  Her marriage is on the rocks.

  there’s no way = used to say that there is no possibility that you will do something or that something will happen 例如:

  There's no way we could afford that sort of money.

  work out = to develop in a successful way 例如:

  My first job didn't work out.

  go out with somebody / go out together = (especially of young people) to spend time with somebody and have a romantic or sexual relationship with them 例如:

  Tom has been going out with Lucy for six weeks.

  How long have Tom and Lucy been going out together?

  grow apart (from somebody) = to stop having a close relationship with somebody over a period of time 例如:

  As we got older we just grew apart.

  Since moving to London, he's grown apart from many of his friends.

  settle down = to start to have a quieter way of life, living in one place 例如:

  When are you going to get married and settle down?

  start a family = have children 例如:

  Do they plan to start a family?

  flashbacks = a sudden, very clear, strong memory of something that happened in the past that is so real you feel that you are living through the experience again 例如:

  War veterans suffer from nightmares and flashbacks.

  be (all) for the best = used to say that although something appears bad or unpleasant now, it will be good in the end 例如:

  I don't want you to leave, but perhaps it's for the best.

  be better off (doing something) = used to say that somebody is/would be happier or more satisfied if they were in a particular position or did a particular thing 例如:

  She's better off without him.

  The weather was so bad we'd have been better off staying at home.
