  雅思口语中最近的新题是聊聊别人的家长。有些家长是比较专治的,就是那种control freak或者helicopter parents (who want to watch their children’s every move),再或者养育下一代目的是替自己完成年轻时梦想的,更可怕的是那种全以考试为导向,只看成绩,完全不顾孩子死活或快乐与否的父母!当家长不用持证上岗真是太可怕了!所以,这道雅思口语题给了我们很好的意淫机会,来聊聊传说中“别人的父母”吧……

  I think my uncle is a good parent. I really like the way he raises and educates his son.

  Here’s the story.

  My cousin is really talented in music, and he has always wanted to be a singer and songwriter. Unlike other Chinese parents who believe, in China, the only way to get ahead is to study hard, get into a prestigious university, land a decent job, get married and start a family. My uncle thinks differently. He wants his son to be a free spirit and he told him that there must be a better way to live his life.

  He never forces my cousin to take after school classes, maybe that’s partly because he’s already one of the top students in his class. When other classmates were learning math, English or science in those after school classes, my cousin chose to study singing and dancing, just because he enjoys it. And surprisingly, my uncle was 100 % supportive. He believes that his son shouldn’t be a study machine, being an all-around child is much more important. And he told me once, that he hopes when his son looks back on his childhood, his memories should be full of laughter, not exam papers.

  So you see, my cousin is really lucky to have my uncle as his father.

  上面那种开明的父亲,简直应该颁个奖!Father of the Year!给孩子足够的自由选择自己的人生,好酷!

  语言点解析:

  get ahead (of somebody) = to make progress (further than others have done) 例如:

  He soon got ahead of the others in his class.

  prestigious = respected and admired as very important or of very high quality 例如:

  a prestigious award

  a prestigious university

  the city's most prestigious and exclusive hotel

  land = to succeed in getting a job, etc, especially one that a lot of other people want 例如:

  He's just landed a starring role in Spielberg's next movie.

  She's just landed herself a company directorship.

  start a family = have children

  free spirit = a person who is independent and does what they want instead of doing what other people do

  all-around = all-round = (of a person) with a wide range of skills or abilities

  She's a good all-round player.

  look back on something = to think about something in your past = reflect on 例如:

  She looked back on her career with great satisfaction.

  She looked back on the past without regret.
