  关于“等待”这个主题,貌似雅思口语命题官们很是喜欢,无论是Part 1还是Part 2,甚至Part 3也总是由“等待”引出“耐心”之类的问题。所以,我们就来搞一个Part 2部分大家都有机会经历的事件,那就是,在机场等待延误的飞机,这种糟心的经历,还可以顺路用在各种不开心的经历上,到时候就“见什么题说什么话”吧:

  I’d like to talk about the time I waited at the airport. It was about a year ago when I was taking a trip to Bali Island. Unfortunately, there was heavy snow that day, so my flight got delayed. We had no idea when we could board, so we just waited in the departure lounge that was packed with passengers. I couldn't find a seat, and the worst part is, I forgot to charge my iPad and cellphone the night before, they were both dying, and there was no place for me to charge them ‘cause basically all the chargers were occupied, so as you can imagine, I was bored to death.

  I went to the lady behind the counter to ask how much longer we had to wait, but she just simply ignored me. Some other passengers asked the same question but there was no reply, either. A few of them got a little irritated and they started to argue with the lady. But I guess there was nothing she could do about the weather.

  We waited for the entire afternoon, and it was getting dark. I had a feeling that it’s highly possible that my flight would be canceled, and I proved to be right. Late at night we got a message that the flight was canceled due to the horrible weather, which was pretty upsetting, but at least they offered me free accommodation. It was not all that bad.

  其实这个等待的经历可以像描写流水账一样,把自己边等边干啥了讲出来就行了,例如瞎逛去个书店什么的:

  The only thing I could do was wandering around. I found a bookstore, to be honest, I’m not a big reader, but there was nothing left for me to do, so I just stepped in. I spent about half an hour there, but I didn’t find anything entertaining, so I just left. (字里行间都是无聊和绝望啊……)

  语言点解析:

  have no idea = not have the faintest, first, etc. idea = used to emphasize that you do not know something 例如:

  ‘What's she talking about?’ ‘I've no idea.’

  He hasn't the faintest idea how to manage people.

  I had no idea she'd had such a difficult life.

  I don't have any idea where he is.

  die = (of a machine) to stop working 例如:

  The engine spluttered and died.

  My car just died on me.

  feeling = the idea or belief that a particular thing is true or a particular situation is likely to happen 例如:

  He suddenly had the feeling of being followed.

  I got the feeling that he didn't like me much.

  I had a nasty feeling that we were lost.

  upsetting = making you feel unhappy, anxious or annoyed 例如:

  an upsetting experience

  She finds the divorce too upsetting to talk about.

  wander = to walk slowly around or to a place, often without any particular sense of purpose or direction 例如:

  She wandered aimlessly around the streets.

  The child was found wandering the streets alone.
