雅思口语:不得不早到的约定

  有些雅思考生的临场发挥能力,不得不佩服。雅思口语Part 2话题都可以就地取材,例如曾经的一道an occasion when you have to use your imagination,他就说曾经自己Part 2被考到了一个完全没有经历过的事情,只能靠想象力发挥;再比如an occasion when someone made you laugh, 他就说考试当天自己被逗乐的经历,例如同伴带着过期的身份证考口语被撵出来的场景… 那我们来看an occasion when you have to arrive early for an appointment,不就是你跟考官的两千块钱之约么……

  I’d like to talk about my experience just now. When I got my IELTS Admission Ticket, it said, I should arrive at the test venue at least 30 minutes prior to the speaking test, because they will take my photo and collect my finger scan before the test. And my teacher warned me, the check-in will close 15 minutes prior to the scheduled interview time.

  So, just to avoid being late, I booked a train ticket way earlier than I should have. You see, my test starts at XXX (临场发挥吧,实事求是), but when I arrived at the train station here, it was only XX (编的合理一点即可), so I just took my time and took a bus here. But it was still too early, when I got to the campus, I still needed to wait for about (30 minutes, one hour, your call).

  I had nowhere to go but to wander around the campus, ‘cause they didn’t allow me to enter the building. They just asked me to wait for my turn. Fortunately, the weather today is pretty good, I just took a stroll outside, watching the world go by. And I saw a homeless cat earlier, which was so cute. I even bought it a sausage.

  And finally, it was my turn. First, I stayed in the waiting room with other candidates, waiting for the teacher to take our pictures and stuff. And before I met you, I’d already sat in the chair for a while.

  So you see, I’m really glad to finally meet you, ‘cause I’d waited for quite a long time.

  prior to = before something 例如:

  during the week prior to the meeting

  take your time (over something) = take your time to do something / doing something = to use as much time as you need without hurrying 例如:

  There's no rush—take your time.

  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.

  We wandered back towards the car.

  The child was found wandering the streets alone.

  stroll = a slow relaxed walk例如:

  The beach is a leisurely ten-minute stroll away.

  This is all good stuff. Well done!

  What's all this ‘Mrs. Smith’ stuff? Call me Anna.
