  惊不惊喜意不意外!每天手里的工具书也可以作为雅思口语考题。你每天在查字典的时候,有想过它带来的好处么?有想过它对孩子的好处么?但是考官就会一本正经的问你这种问题……

  Do you often use dictionary?

  Yeah, I use dictionary quite often. I’m really into reading English novels, and whenever I come across any new words, I would look them up in the dictionary, but I don’t use the paper dictionary, I have an electronic one in my phone, that’s more time-saving, you know.

  语言点解析:

  come across somebody / something = [no passive] to meet or find somebody / something by chance例如:

  I came across children sleeping under bridges.

  She came across some old photographs in a drawer.

  look something up = to look for information in a dictionary or reference book, or by using a computer例如:

  Can you look up the opening times on the website?

  I looked it up in the dictionary.

  Which kind of dictionary do you like to use?

  Well, personally, I prefer to use monolingual dictionary, ‘cause the English explanation of a word can help me have a better and more correct understanding of that word. So I have downloaded an Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary in my phone, and it has helped me a lot.

  语言点解析:

  monolingual = speaking or using only one language例如:

  a monolingual dictionary

  Do you think the dictionary is useful?

  Yeah! It’s super useful, I mean, it helps me become more independent of my English teacher, and it has expanded my vocabulary quite a lot. I can enjoy the pleasure of reading English novels without getting stuck on words that I don’t know.

  语言点解析:

  independent of = confident and free to do things without needing help from other people例如:

  Going away to college has made me much more independent.

  She's a very independent-minded young woman.

  Students should aim to become more independent of their teachers.

  stuck on something = unable to answer or understand something 例如:

  I got stuck on the first question.

  I'll help you if you're stuck.

  What are the benefits of using dictionary for kids?

  Like I said, dictionaries can help develop learner autonomy, I mean, when kids are at home studying, with the help of a dictionary, they don’t need to ask teachers for help anymore. And besides knowing the meaning of a word, they can also learn about how to use the word from examples provided in the dictionary, which is helpful for their writing and speaking skills.

  语言点解析:

  learner autonomy = Learner Autonomy has been a buzz word in foreign language education in the past decades, especially in relation to lifelong learning skills. Autonomy is the ability to take charge of one's own learning.

  Do you prefer electronic dictionary or paper version?

  Definitely electronic ones, ‘cause like I mentioned earlier, it’s time-saving, more efficient. Plus, they are readily available in App Stores. We can conveniently download them to our smartphone. Besides, most of them have awesome functions, like… they can record the word you looked up, and help you review them.

  语言点解析:

  readily = quickly and without difficulty = freely例如:

  All ingredients are readily available from your local store.

  All this information is readily available at the touch of a button (= by simply pressing a button).
