  雅思口语里最近的题目之一是:a useful skill you learned in a math class from your high school.这个skill乍一看貌似不靠谱,但是仔细一想,其实我们发现了一个万能模板!等到下次出题官问我们其他课上学到的本领,我们完全可以说一样的!步骤都这么来:先说技能是啥,再说为何以及如何练就了该技能。学生上课睡觉无非就是老师的问题和课程内容的问题(当然学生前一晚出去浪了半宿第二天上课瞌睡不在本次讨论范围内),所以就说几句老师讲课方式多么无聊以及书本多么枯燥。之后迫不得已修炼神功,最后介绍一下这个坐着睡觉不被发现的神功多么有用就OK了!

  I have developed an awesome skill in my math class in high school, which is sleeping while sitting in my chair without being caught.

  Here’s how it happened.

  My math teacher is a boring old man, and he has this monotonous voice that makes everybody sleepy. He’s got no teaching skills at all. What he did every class was reading the textbook and copying what’s on the textbook onto the blackboard. Actually, I was pretty into math when I was in junior high school, but he has successfully made math class a nightmare for me.

  And the worst part was, at that time, we had plenty of homework every night, we had to stay up late basically all the time. So we were all tired and drowsy during the daytime. And obviously, this teacher didn’t make things any better.

  We knew it was not polite to sleep during class, it would be so disrespectful. However, we couldn’t control ourselves. I mean, when he was giving a lecture, we just nodded off constantly. We couldn’t sleep like this (肢体语言跟上,做出‘趴在桌子上’的动作), so we just sat back in our chair, and put the textbook on our lap, pretending to read. There’s no way he could found out.

  This skill is useful for the simple reason that it has helped me sit through many boring speeches and lectures in college.

  语言点解析:

  monotonous = never changing and therefore boring例如:

  a monotonous voice/ diet/ routine

  monotonous work

  New secretaries came and went with monotonous regularity.

  be into something = (informal) to be interested in something in an active way例如:

  He's into surfing in a big way.

  nightmare for somebody = an experience that is very frightening and unpleasant, or very difficult to deal with例如:

  The trip turned into a nightmare when they both got sick.

  Filling in all those forms was a nightmare.

  Losing a child is most people's worst nightmare.

  If it goes ahead, it will be the nightmare scenario (= the worst thing that could happen).

  a nightmare situation

  nod off = (informal) to fall asleep for a short time while you are sitting in a chair例如:

  I was practically nodding off in that meeting.

  sit back = to sit on something, usually a chair, in a relaxed position例如:

  He sat back in his chair and started to read.

  (there’s) no way = (informal) used to say that there is no possibility that you will do something or that something will happen例如:

  ‘Do you want to help?’ ‘No way!’

  No way am I going to drive them there.

  There's no way we could afford that sort of money.

  sit through something = to stay until the end of a performance, speech, meeting, etc. that you think is boring or too long例如:

  We had to sit through nearly two hours of speeches.
