  雅思口语里有个talkative person的话题。有些出租车司机神烦,怨天怨地,愤世嫉俗,把乘客当成垃圾桶各种倒苦水。还有那种脾气暴躁,各种路怒症各种叨逼叨。不过还有一种天生讨人喜欢的话唠司机,热情好客,待人友善,让人忍不住的想跟他聊天,这种暖心司机可以把整个旅程变滴无比舒服。无论大家碰到哪种司机师傅,都可以扣这个“talkative person”的题哦!

  I’d like to talk about a taxi driver I met in Chendu, which is a city in the south of China.

  I met this driver the first day I got there. After I walked out of the airport, I got into his car. After I told him my destination, he asked me, ‘You are not a local here, right?’ I knew he must have known that from my accent. So I replied, ‘No, I’m just a visitor. And I’m from the northeast part of China.’ Then he got so excited, he said, he’s never been to my hometown, as a person who lives in the south, he never gets to see the snow. He’s really curious about what snow looks like.

  However, when I was just about to tell him what winter looks like, he changed the subject immediately. I mean, he didn’t mean to interrupt me, he was just so welcoming and talkative, you know.

  He just suddenly became a free tour guide. He started to introduce all the places I should visit and all the snacks I shouldn’t miss. However, because of his dialect, I couldn't understand most of what he said. And he talked really fast, which was really hard for me to follow. It was about half an hour’s ride. The whole time, he didn’t even stop talking for one second.

  So, you see, he’s the most talkative person I’ve met.

  语言点解析:

  local = a person who lives in a particular place or district例如:

  The locals are very friendly.

  She's beginning to sound like one of the locals.

  be about to do something = to be close to doing something; to be going to do something very soon例如:

  I was just about to ask you the same thing.

  mean = to have something as a purpose or intention例如:

  I'm sorry I hurt you. I didn't mean to.

  I'm feeling very guilty—I've been meaning to call my parents for days, but still haven't got around to it.

  interrupt = to say or do something that makes somebody stop what they are saying or doing例如:

  Sorry to interrupt, but there's someone to see you.

  Would you mind not interrupting with questions all the time?

  I hope I'm not interrupting you.

  They were interrupted by a knock at the door.

  welcoming = (of a person) friendly towards somebody who is visiting or arriving例如:

  The locals were extremely welcoming.

  dialect = the form of a language that is spoken in one area with grammar, words and pronunciation that may be different from other forms of the same language例如:
