  雅思口语关于Describe a competition you want to take part in 的话题,我们可以联想到电视上经常看到一些让大家惊叹“行行出状元”的game show。就像《最强大脑》啦之类的。下面的素材结合现实TV show,加入了一些虚构的成分,不过听起来,也是一场很炫酷的competition呢:

  There’s a popular game show in China, called Who’s the Best Driver. I really want to take part in that competition ‘cause it’s super cool.

  This game requires excellent driving skills, for example, you have to control the speed of your vehicle precisely, you have to be able to control the steering wheel appropriately so that the car can go in the direction you want it to go. So basically, you need to coordinate your hands and feet perfectly.

  Every contestant has to meet several challenges. For example, they need to drive on a platform which is like a see-saw. And they have to keep the balance over 10 seconds, and then they can go to the next round. And I think the hardest challenge is the one where you have to park in several garages according to their instructions. And the last challenge is you need to drive your car into a moving truck. So you see, this game just seems humanly impossible. However, it doesn’t stop people from entering the competition, ‘cause the prize is so tempting. If I remember right, the winner could get a brand new car and 100,000 RMB in cash.

  I’m not that good at parking my car into the garage. I mean, I couldn’t control the angle precisely, so if I sign up for the competition now, I’ll definitely lose marks because of that, and I might be eliminated in the first round. So maybe I still have a long way to go before I could be the winner.
