  点击查看>>>>近期雅思口语高频话题

  一月份又迎来了雅思口语一年三度的换题季,但是跟以前的套路一样,换来换去就这些topic,感觉雅思命题官已经编不下去了:不是早到就是迟到,不是别人有礼貌就是自己有礼貌,不是教别人就是跟别人学,不是助人为乐就是被别人帮助,一点儿创意都没有……而且还特别喜欢回忆童年,童年趣事啦,童年的toy啦总是频频出现,你的喜好考官虽然毫不在意,但是也得被逼着问我们最喜欢的衣服,植物,家具,书,城市,历史人物,历史时期,TV show,电影广告网站和歌曲。雅思人物类题目会考各路名人,例如musician,sportsman,businessman,comedian一个都逃不过。总感觉如果自己不热爱生活没点儿兴趣爱好,都不好意思考口语……

  下面我们分享个考官的最爱:water!

  还记得之前经典的“近水之地”和“近水运动”吧。可能命题官感觉考官们听了太多的马尔代夫,不想听大海的声音了,于是换成了river或lake,然后心中默念:“我让你们成天碧海蓝天阳光沙滩!”

  切,没所谓啊,谁家还没条河啊:

  I’d like to talk about the river in my hometown called Songhua River.

  It runs across the city and definitely beautifies the whole area. The night views along the river are gorgeous when all the lights are on. There are skyscrapers on both sides of the river, and most of them are high-rise apartment buildings. The government installed decorative lights on the walls of the buildings, and when it’s getting dark, the lights start to show attractive and creative patterns, which light up the whole place.

  And there are several bridges over the river. The streetlights on the bridges are another magnet for citizens and visitors. Everyday we can see many photographers take pictures near the river.

  I guess another reason why the river means a lot to the local people is that it provides electric power for the whole city. There’s a power station upstream working 24-7.

  The most magical scenery along the river must be the rime on the trees during winter. Like I mentioned earlier, we have a power station, so the water in the river is always flowing, it won’t freeze even when the temperature is 30 degrees below zero. And when the steam rises from the river and meets the cold branches of willow trees, it just turns into ice. And from a distance, it just looks like a wonderland.

  This river is like a symbol of my hometown, and that’s why it’s really important.
