  雅思口语里一个最近的话题问describe a situation when you had to be polite。这就难倒很多同学。其实,不知道大家平时有没有遇到过不靠谱的长辈。比如,公共场所不注意形象,大声喧哗,喝醉了之后大耍酒疯,让你瞬间想跟他划清界限,装成拼桌的互不认识。这种行为的描写,很容易用英文表述。所以真要感谢这些叔叔们,为我们提供了超级扣题的口语素材。估计考官听了之后,也会同情我们:有个耍酒疯的长辈,心真累……

  I’d like to talk about the time I had to be polite to my father’s business partner.

  This uncle likes to drink a lot, but I’m not saying he’s an alcoholic, ‘cause my father will never do business with alcoholics. What I’m saying is, he always behaves badly after he gets drunk, for example, he often goes on and on about his achievements in the past, which is really annoying. And the worst part is, he talks really loudly, and sometimes, when he’s really happy, he even jumps onto the table and starts to dance. That’s super embarrassing, you know. I don’t like him that much, ‘cause I don’t think he’s professional or serious enough. However, he’s my father’s business partner, so I have to show him some respect and be polite every time I meet him.

  One day, he invited me and my father to eat out in a restaurant. And not surprisingly, he got drunk again. This time, he did something even more ridiculous. In order to prove how powerful and tough he was, he found a brick and tried to break it in half with his bare hand. I felt so embarrassed sitting next to him, but I didn’t say anything, I even applaud him, just to be polite, you know.

  I really hope I don’t need to have dinner with him again.

  如果把吃饭地点换一下,换成这位叔叔到你家来吃饭,那他就是你家的“访客”啦:

  I’d like to talk about the time my father’s business partner visited my home.

  然后介绍这位叔叔那段直接搬过来。后面的吃饭那段这么改:

  One day, my father invited him to my home, to have dinner together. My mom prepared lots of dishes for us. And not surprisingly, he got drunk again. This time, he did something even more ridiculous. He started to sing loudly, I felt all of my neighbors could hear him. I felt so embarrassed sitting next to him, but I didn’t say anything, I even applaud him, just to be nice, you know.

  结尾可以是:I hope that was the last time he came to my home.

  语言点解析:

  go on and on about something / somebody = (informal) to talk about somebody / something for a long time, especially in a boring or complaining way例如:

  He went on and on about how poor he was.

  She does go on sometimes!

  eat out = to have a meal in a restaurant, etc. rather than at home例如:

  Do you feel like eating out tonight?

  ridiculous = very silly or unreasonable例如:

  Don't be ridiculous! You can't pay £50 for a T-shirt!

  They ate and drank a ridiculous amount.

  I look ridiculous in this hat.

  bare = not covered by any clothes例如:

  She likes to walk around in bare feet.

  They wore shabby clothes and their feet were bare.

  applaud = to show your approval of somebody / something by clapping your hands例如:

  They rose to applaud the speaker.

  She was applauded as she came on stage.
