  大家千万不要忘记,雅思口语Part 2的一个重要的元素是“describe”呀!言简意赅的讲故事习惯一定要改掉,这里不是考察大家概括文章大意,而是告诉考官,我有描述细节的能力。

  Part 2有一道很经典的题目—Describe a time when you helped someone,下次如果你真的要描写“扶老奶奶过马路”,也要把前因后果描述清楚,这种事件类的话题比单纯的描述物品类话题简单多了!回忆一下小学时候学习的“记叙文六要素”(时间,地点,人物,事情的起因,经过,结果),按照顺序整起来吧:

  This topic reminds me of the time I helped two strangers.

  The other day, when I was walking on the street, two foreigners came up to me, asking for directions. They told me where they are from, but I’ve never heard of the country, so I couldn't remember the name exactly. Anyway, they explained they were travellers, and they got separated from their friends. What’s worse, both of their phones were dead, and they didn’t have any cash on them, but they were pretty sure their hotel was not far away, so they were wondering if I could give them some directions. Actually, I don’t have a very good sense of direction, but lucky for them, I happen to know that hotel, so I just showed them the way patiently. They didn’t speak much English, so I had a hard time explaining which way they should go. I even offered to walk them their, ‘cause I was afraid they could get lost again, but they didn’t want to put me to a lot of trouble. So in the end, I just drew them a ‘map’ on a napkin. Actually their hotel was quite easy to find, I guess, with my help, they could find their way back with no trouble at all.

  语言点解析:

  come up to somebody = to move towards somebody, in order to talk to them例如:

  He came up to me and asked me the way to the station.

  dead = (of machines or equipment) not working because of a lack of power 例如:

  a dead battery

  The hard disk is dead.

  Suddenly the phone went dead.

  wonder if / weather = used as a polite way of asking a question or asking somebody to do something 例如:

  I wonder if you can help me.

  I was wondering whether you'd like to come to a party.

  happen to be / to do = to do or be something by chance 例如:

  She happened to be out when we called.

  You don't happen to know his name, do you?

  This happens to be my favorite restaurant.

  The door happened to be unlocked.

  Walk somebody + adv./prep. = to go somewhere with somebody on foot, especially in order to make sure they get there safely 例如:

  He always walked her home.

  trouble = extra effort or work 例如:

  I don't want to put you to a lot of trouble.

  I'll get it if you like, that will save you the trouble of going out.

  Making your own yogurt is more trouble than it's worth.

  She went to a lot of trouble to find the book for me.

  Nothing is ever too much trouble for her (= she's always ready to help).

  I hope the children weren't too much trouble.

  I can call back later—it's no trouble (= I don't mind).
