  雅思口语里问敬佩的商人,如果Jack Ma实在说腻了,咱们就换个businessman搞吧。中国那么多成功的商人,不过大家都喜欢聊马云先生,估计考官这些年下来,都可以自己写出马云的传记了吧……

  除了淘宝,我们还有京东啊!京东集团董事局主席兼执行官刘强东先生的事迹也是绝对励志,并且他也有个洋气的英文名Richard Liu。为了完成Part 2素材,我们不需要知道太多关于他成功的细节,不过如果你只知道他的老婆是奶茶妹妹,就不太行了…… 起码小时候的贫寒家境、自立自强成功考入名牌大学的经历、京东这个公司的特点等方面的内容,是要聊到的。总之,励志的故事是同学们最拿手的,实在不太清楚的细节,不还有百度呢么。

  I’d like to talk about Liu Qiangdong who’s the Chairman of Jing Dong which is an online shopping website.

  His life story is pretty inspiring and educational. He was born in a poor family in a remote rural area. He didn't have access to a decent education when he was young, ‘cause his parents couldn’t afford the tuition fee, but he was incredibly hardworking, and when he was 18, he got accepted to Renmin University of China, which is one of the best universities in my country. It’s unbelievable. We can’t even begin to imagine the efforts he made.

  When other students were having fun, he was studying in the library or doing part-time jobs, ‘cause he didn’t want to add any financial burdens to his family. He started to become financially independent since the day he stepped into university.

  As a businessman, he’s got great judgment and strategic methods. The most important thing is, he’s trustworthy. I mean, he never sells fake stuff on his website. You know, many greedy businessmen like to sell knockoffs to make a huge profit, but he never does that. And he has his own shipping company, which means customers don’t have to wait a long time for their items to be delivered.

  What I like most about him is that he’s a grateful person. It’s been 20 years since he left his village, but he never forgets his villagers who once helped him. Every year, he would donate a lot of money to the people in his hometown, and he even set up a foundation in order to sponsor those children who are just like him when he was young.

  So that’s why I look up to/admire him.
