  只要是个名人,就十有八九被邀请去过什么毕业典礼啦,TED talk啦,或者什么talk show之类的,而且基本上都会端出来点儿心灵鸡汤,介绍一下自己的生平顺便吹个牛什么的,反正你成功了你说啥都对。

  所以关于interesting speech这个雅思口语题目,千万别绞尽脑汁回忆自己看过哪些人的speech,就随便让他们参加个节目,然后结合这位名人的生平,胡乱吹个两分钟就好了。(当然如果你看过印象深刻的speech拿来讲更好,这里只是给毫无思路的烤鸭们一个答题套路)

  There’s this famed TV show called Voice that invites successful people in different areas including movie stars, businessmen, TV celebrities, to deliver a speech to audience, to share their life story. And in one episode, they invited Jay Chou, my favorite singer and songwriter.

  It was quite an inspiring and informative speech in which he talked about his childhood, how he got spotted and how he became a household name in China.

  He grew up in a single parent family, his parents got divorced when he was only 4 years old. At school, he was quite introverted and shy, and he always got teased or picked on by those mean kids and bullies. But he was a tough boy and nothing could bring him down.

  He told the young audience not to get frustrated by the difficulties and hardship, ‘cause they would become precious gift later in life. For example, if he had hung out with those ‘popular’ kids, he wouldn’t have had time to himself, to come up with all those great ideas about music. And there are so many other examples that I might not able to cover in such a short time.

  Anyway, what I learned from the speech is that we could be anyone we want if we put our mind to it. I know it sounds a little cliché, but it’s true. It’s important to be single-minded on our way to success.
