  “一个很少人知道的interesting place”你是怎么知道的呢?所以这道雅思口语题是不是可以先聊聊这点。剩下的就是讲这个地方怎么interesting了。回顾一下自己之前准备过的地点类题目,比如饭店咖啡馆啦,公园啦或者自己经常去放松的地方,都可以换个介绍方式应用到这个题目中。

  I’d like to talk about a place in the countryside near the city where I go to university.

  I knew that place totally by accident.

  Here’s the story. The other day when I was on the bus back to school, I nodded off. And when I woke up, I realized I already missed my stop, and it seemed that I was in the middle of nowhere. I got off the bus, trying to find my way back, but it turned out I had a terrible sense of direction, so I was completely lost.

  But the lucky thing is, I walked into the place I mentioned earlier. It was still early, about 2 o’clock in the afternoon when the sunshine was just warm enough to make people feel comfortable, you know. So I just walked along the path, and got to an idyllic spot near the river.

  I have to say, the views were just as gorgeous as those famous tourist spots, but maybe because that place was not developed and commercialized, few people know about it. There were even no people having a picnic around me.

  I lay on my back on the grass, closed my eyes and just listened to the sound of nature, I mean, the singing of birds, the soft rustling of leaves, and the whispering of breeze in my ears.

  I marked the place on my Google map, so that next time I could take my friends there and have a day out having fun together.
