  对于雅思口语furniture这个话题,大家要注意两点,第一,furniture不可数,得用a piece of furniture,第二,人家让咱们说“家具”,要是大家说起了“家电”就不太好了。所以其实供我们选择的物件也比较有限,我们可以聊bed,desk,chair,dinner table,closet,bookcase等。



  I’d like to talk about our closet in our old house. It was completely made from wood, and it was painted into yellow with some simple patterns, you know, like squares and triangles. The texture is quite smooth, and it is about this big. There’s a full-length mirror attached to it. Originally, the closet used to face my bed, but at night, whenever I took a look at the mirror, I would feel a little bit creepy, so I had it moved next to my bedroom door.

  For me, the closet is full of my entire childhood memory. It was my favorite hiding place when I was playing hide and seek. The closet was big enough to hold me, and I always hid under a big pile of clothes, so my friends could never find me.

  Like I said, this closet has big capacity, I could put all of my clothes in it. And the best part is, I could hide anything that I didn’t want my parents to see in that closet. For example, whenever I got a love letter, I would hide it in the drawer under my sock box. So you see, that closet knows about many of my secrets.

  Oh, and in some ways, it recorded my growth. I mean, my mom always marked my height on one of the edges, so now if I check the closet, I would know how tall I was when I was… like 10 years old.

  Um… So you see, this closet really means a lot to me, even though it’s been a long time since we moved out, we still keep it in the old house.
