  雅思口语里聊参加选秀节目一夜成名走向人生巅峰,听起来就很interesting啊!不过这里别光强调当明星多么好,我们可以谈谈自己内心的纠结。有实力,想参加,但是却没有勇气的矛盾心理。然后说说为了参加比赛所需要的准备,最后给自己定个目标,两分钟到!

  I’ve always wanted to enter a singing competition.

  In my spare time, I always watch those talent shows, like The Voice of China, Britain’s Got Talent, American Idol and things like that.

  I fancy myself as a good singer as well, ‘cause I took several singing classes when I was little and I’ve got a pretty good singing voice. I usually sing in the shower, and my parents often encourage me to sign up for a contest. However, what has stopped me from doing this is that I have serious stage fright, you know, I don’t have the courage to sing in front of a large audience. So I really admire those people who are brave enough to show their talent on the big stage.

  If I want to take part in a competition like this, the first step is to overcome my fear and practice my singing skills. I really need to work on my confidence, I mean, if I keep being timid like this, I would stand no chance of winning.

  My cousin used to be one of the contestants, and she did super well in the open audition, but unfortunately, she didn’t make it to the final, I hope I could top that one day.
