  雅思口语Part 2事件类出现了describe a special day that you went out but didn’t spend much money,不知道为什么,就直接想到了去郊游。还有一道题目,describe something you enjoy doing with an old person in your family,我们当然也可以说跟爷爷奶奶去郊游。虽然这两个话题,一个让描写某一次的经历,一个是惯常的经历,不过本质上的活动都差不多嘛:

  Last summer vacation, my girlfriend and I had a day out in the countryside. We were kind of tired of going to the mall, eating out, watching a movie, that sort of things, so we thought it would be nice to do something different for a change. Plus, having a picnic in the countryside wouldn’t cost us much, we just needed to get some snacks and drinks from the supermarket, and fill up the gas tank in my car.

  It’s a nice way to get close to nature, and we were pretty psyched about the trip. On our way there, we were just like people going on a road trip in the movies, you know, we waved our hands in the air, playing loud music and singing along.

  When we got there, we managed to find a quiet, idyllic spot near the river. We put our huge blanket on the grass, and started to eat. It was super enjoyable, the views there was quite gorgeous, the sky was cloudless and the river was shimmering in the sunlight, the water was crystal clear, and we could hear the singing of birds, everything was perfect.

  The best part is, there was no signal there, which means we could finally stay away from our phones and truly enjoy ourselves.

  When it was getting dark, the sky became full of stars. So we just lay on the blanket and admired the starry night.

  Now I think about it, this trip only cost us less than 100 RMB, but it turns out to be the most memorable short trip I’ve ever had.

  语言点解析:

  day out = a trip or visit somewhere for a day例如:

  We had a day out in the country.

  tired of = feeling that you have had enough of somebody / something because you no longer find them/ it interesting or because they make you angry or unhappy例如:

  I'm sick and tired of all the arguments.

  She was tired of hearing about their trip to India.

  a change = the fact of a situation, a place or an experience being different from what is usual and therefore likely to be interesting, enjoyable, etc.例如:

  Finishing early was a welcome change.

  Let's stay in tonight for a change.

  Can you just listen for a change?

  It makes a change to read some good news for once.

  fill up = to become completely full; to make something completely full例如:

  The ditches had filled up with mud.

  to fill up the tank with oil

  psyched = [not before noun] (informal, especially NAmE) excited, especially about something that is going to happen例如:

  The kids are really psyched about the vacation.

  shimmer = to shine with a soft light that seems to move slightly例如:

  The sea was shimmering in the sunlight.

  The surface of the road shimmered in the midday heat.

  下面我们把这美好的一天变成跟爷爷的惯常活动:

  Well, I really enjoy having a day out with my grandpa in the countryside.

  My grandpa is a huge fan of fishing, when I was little, he always took me fishing in the river. Now I’ve grown up, hanging out with him is still my favorite pastime.

  It’s a nice way to get close to nature, every time we hit the road, we were just like people going on a road trip in the movies, you know, we waved our hands in the air, playing loud music and singing along, so you see, my grandpa is pretty fashionable.

  When we get to the countryside, we usually find a quiet, idyllic spot near the river. My grandpa just sits by the river, fishing. And I have to say, he’s a natural! Every time he always gets plenty of fishes. And we just smoke them as our lunch. It’s super enjoyable, the views there are quite gorgeous, the sky is always cloudless and the river is shimmering in the sunlight, the water is crystal clear, and we could hear the singing of birds, everything is perfect.

  The best part is, in most cases, there is no signal there, which means I could finally stay away from my phone and truly enjoy myself.

  语言点解析:

  pastime = something that you enjoy doing when you are not working例如:

  Watching television now seems to be the most popular national pastime.

  hit the road = to start a journey/ trip
