  关于建筑,是雅思口语常考话题,常见的修饰词就是interesting,还考过unusual,不知道未来会不会考ugly,如果真考了,那么微博里替大家归纳的badly-designed奇葩building终于就可以派上用场了。Anyway, 这里分享一个即interesting又unusual的建筑,希望可以帮助大家应对以后关于building的话题。

  I’d like to talk about a special hotel I saw on the Internet. If I remember right, it’s located near Pemba Island in Tanzania.

  What’s special about this hotel is that it’s 13 feet underwater, and nearly a mile off the nearest island. So you see, this underwater hotel room is unlike any other, I mean, it’s a completely isolated reverse aquarium. You can completely immerse yourself in this marine paradise.

  Guests would be blown away by the breathtaking view of the ocean floor, I mean, all those colorful tropical fishes and all the other marine animals. Besides, the floating room has also become a coral reef after a conservation zone was established around it.

  You can imagine, staying in this hotel would be quite an experience.

  During daytime, you can go diving from the rooftop. Even if you don’t dare to go scuba diving in the ocean, staying in the room, watching those fishes swim by would be just as enjoyable. And when it’s getting dark, you can literally sleep with the fishes. I guess the only sound you could hear at night is the flow of water.

  Unfortunately, however, I heard this hotel room would cost me $1,500 per night, which is way out of my league. So sadly, I guess I wouldn’t be able to afford one night in this interesting hotel in the foreseeable future.

  雅思语料知识点解析:

  blow somebody away = to impress somebody a lot or to make them very happy

  conservation = the protection of the natural environment 例如:

  Road development in the area has been severely affected by the conservation programs of the council.

  to be interested in wildlife conservation

  league = a level of quality, ability, etc. 例如:

  A house like that is out of our league (= too expensive for us).

  When it comes to cooking, I'm not in her league (= she is much better than me).

  As a painter, he is in a league of his own (= much better than others).

  in / for the foreseeable future = in / for the period of time when you can predict what is going to happen, based on the present circumstances 例如:

  It's unlikely that the hospital will be closed in the foreseeable future (= soon).

  The statue will remain in the museum for the foreseeable future.
