  点击查看>>>>近期雅思口语高频话题

  “体育运动”也算是雅思口语里常见话题,Part 1和Part 2都会被问到相关的问题,介于现在考试的口语话题越来越具体,在Part 1同志们要时刻准备被问到具体的常见运动,之前问过swimming,谁知道以后会问到啥。Part 2曾经问过喜欢看的体育赛事,这个时候不要怕自己的答案俗,会说啥就说啥,不喜欢也要说,没看过也要说看过。

  下面跟大家分享有关篮球的素材,无论考到“体育明星”还是“体育运动”,都可以作为参考:

  I’d like to talk about Yaoming, who’s one of the most popular Chinese players in NBA. I started to watch his games when I was little, at that time, he was playing for Rockets, and he’s the main reason why I’ve been rooting for this team for a long time. He’s got awesome skills, you know, he’s tall, but super agile. He has made a great contribution to the development of basketball in China. His achievements in his career is remarkable, I remember, as the team captain, he led our national basketball team win the third place in the Olympic Games in 2008. In China, he has become a cultural icon.

  What I love most about him is that he’s got a great sense of responsibility towards society. It’s fair to say, he’s super public-spirited. After his retirement, he started to devote himself to charity work. He even set up a foundation to help disabled children fight against disease. As a public figure, he really sets a good example to the general public.

  Besides, he has made plenty of public service advertisements. What impressed me most is the one about protecting wildlife. The slogan, ‘when the buying stops, the killing can too’ has stuck in my mind. This has helped raise public awareness of the importance of protecting wild animals, especially those endangered ones.

  So, that’s why he’s my favorite athlete.

  再补充一下运动员的说法,除了athlete,我们也可以说sportsman或者sportsperson,讲到具体的运动也常用player,这些可以作为Part 2的词汇替换。

  下面是“篮球比赛”素材:

  I’d like to talk about basketball matches.

  This sport grew on me mostly because of Yao Ming who’s one of the most popular Chinese players in NBA. He’s got awesome skills, you know, he’s tall, but super agile. I started to watch his game on TV when I was in primary school. He’s one of the few Chinese basketball players that played in NBA and have made a huge contribution to the development of basketball in China.

  That’s why I love to watch his game, I feel so proud, you know.

  I started to play basketball at that time, I could learn so much from the matches I watched on TV, like the strategy and stuff.

  I love to watch this sport not only because of the fascinating skills of those players, also because of their teamwork and dedication. For them, it’s not just a game, it’s so much more than that. They teach me players could achieve more if they work as a team.

  And competitions are always fierce on the court, I’m always thrilled when I’m watching a game, I mean, they could keep me on the edge of my seat the whole time, this game is so unpredictable, full of twists and turns, I mean, you never know who’s gonna win in the end until the last second. I guess that's another beauty of this sport.
