  点击查看>>>>近期雅思口语高频话题

  虽然同学很少会用到letter或者email,但是它们却是雅思口语的高频话题。面对这种讨厌的话题,我们可以先通读一遍所有的题目,然后始终坚持一个原则作答就好了,比如,“我没写过信,也没收到过别人写的信,我平时只在交作业的时候给教授发邮件。我感觉邮件要比手写信方便,但是letter更能传达情感,所以以后可能还会有人写letter的”。按照这个思路来答题,就不会前言不搭后语或者前后矛盾。

  Do you write many letters or emails?

  Well, as far as I can remember, I’ve never written any letters, and I hardly ever send emails except when I hand in/submit my assignment/homework to my professor in college.

  Do you prefer to write letters by hand or to use a computer? / Which do you more often write, emails or letters?

  Um… well, if I had to choose, then maybe I would send an email, ‘cause it’s much more convenient than writing a letter by hand. But actually, it’s not likely to happen, ‘cause if I really need to send messages to others, I would just contact them on one of those chatting applications in my phone.

  How often do you write an email or a letter?

  I guess, once or twice every semester. Most of my professors prefer handwritten homework, so I don’t send them emails that often.

  What are the differences between emails and letters?

  In my opinion, letters are more personal and emotional, we have an old Chinese saying, when you open a letter and see the handwriting, it’s like you actually see the person who wrote it. That’s why few people would send a love letter by email. And as for emails, they are more convenient to send, I mean, you don’t need to go to the post office or buy any stamps, as long as you have Internet access, the people you write to will receive your email immediately, which is time-saving.

  Is it hard to think of what to write?

  Well, it’s not that hard for me. Like I said, I just send emails to my professors to hand in my homework, so every time I just write ‘Dear Professor blah, blah, the attachment is my homework you assigned, thanks for your time and have a nice day’, things like that.

  What kind(s) of letter/email do you think is (are) the hardest to write?

  Um… I guess letters of apology must be hard to write, not that I’ve written one. Oh, and love letters must be hard to write as well, ‘cause when you write a letter like that, you need to write about all the reasons you adore the person. Plus, things would be awkward if the person doesn’t love you back / feel the same way / the feeling is not mutual.

  How do you feel when you receive a letter or email?

  Um, I’ve only received one letter so far in my life, which is the one I got from my cousin before my college entrance exam. I was so happy when I opened the letter, ‘cause she encouraged me and calmed me down before the exam.

  Do you think people will still write letters in the future?

  Yeah, some people might think that letters seem to be a thing of the past, but personally I believe that writing letters represents an emotional connection. It’s more sincere, and it’s the fact that few people are still doing it that makes it all the more precious.
