Hi~ 晚上好。今天没有偷懒......

20171125口语真题 Task1

Which of the following qualities did your parents help you develop in your childhood? And how did they do it?

1)     Self-confidence

2)     Patience

3)     Kindness


题目解析

依然属于描述人物性格的题目。无论选择哪一个,大家答题的时候注意以下几点:

1. 虽然这题是三选一,但不是做题的人在“选择”(比如,不是问我们哪个品质更重要),所以,不必像其他的“选择性”题目一样,在回答的过程中兼顾另外的选项(有同学出了考场告诉我,一个激动忘记题另两个选项了,这次没事哒!)

2. 需要描述选中的品质,比如什么样的人/行为属于kind、patient的人是怎样的,别通篇只把patience这样比较抽象的词放在那儿、不解释。至于解释的方向,各人自圆其说即可、没有标准答案。比如“patient”可以体现在与长辈(尤其是老年人)沟通的时候不会不耐烦,与同学或朋友持不同观点的时候可以耐心听对方把话说完,等等。

3. 也需要讲一讲家长如何培养你的这一品质的,所以需要简单地叙事 —— 可见,这题也不是很多人惯性思维地“第一个原因、第二个原因”哦!


答案示例

My parents expect me to grow into a kind person, and they have tried to do so since I was a little kid. We had a pet at that time, a lovely dog with big round eyes and fluffy ears. My parents told me that he was family and I needed to take care of him. At first I thought that meant feeding him regularly and playing with him, especially when I felt bored, but then I realized that this was far from enough since dog could get upset when he felt ignored or unwanted, so I promised myself to spend some time with him every day no matter rain or shine. Gradually, I learned to care about others’ feelings. For my parents, kindness means having empathy, to feel concern for others while for me, well, I’m not sure if I’m a kind person or not, yet I believe that being nice toward others makes me happy, and we should be there for our loved ones when they need us.


20171125口语真题 Task2

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement:

Intelligence is the only deciding factor for students' success in school.


思路

这题题干的内容比较绝对,强调“越是intelligent的同学成绩越好”,所以今天的考场里同学们基本都回答了否定。

解释原因的时候,我们可能会想到一些过去考过的题目、作为借鉴。


Some people think that one needs to be talented to be an artist, while others believe trainings and hard work is more crucial for someone to be an artist. Which do you think is more important? (20160227)


School needs to encourage students to be more creative and use imagination to be successful person. Do you agree or disagree with the statement? (20160228)


Which of the following characteristics if more important for one’s success:

1) Intelligence

2) Courage

3) Creativity


这里提醒大家:

1. 题干中表达得比较绝对的,“否定”比较简单

2. 老题多接触一些,很多情况下、题目本身就可以为回答其他的独立口语题贡献思路

3. 答题内容,万变不离其宗——这题还是需要描述一下人物的某个品质(quality),比如intelligent, hard-working, creative, brave等等;再配合解释的部分——即,为什么这样的品质有助于学生获得成功。至于具体细节,比如creative的学生是怎样的、为什么这有助于成功,我们在这周三的口语线上课里已经详细说过啦!大家可以在历史消息里找到那次讲座的文稿(口语05)


答案示例

I  think intelligence is by no means the deciding factor regarding one's success in school since there are many other qualities that are equally, if not more important, than a high IQ. For example, hard work matters a lot, especially considering that students usually won’t differ that much in terms of intelligence, it is the amount of effort that makes a difference. We’ve all heard stories of someone with an average amount of intelligence shooting for the stars through relentless efforts. Moreover, courage counts, too, since it may decide whether people could let others see their talents. A student might have wonderful ideas, but if he/she cannot pluck up courage to introduce them to others, no one could ever know about them. Also, given that more and more schools begin to use oral presentation as a form of evaluation, students who panic when standing in front of audience may find it hard to achieve success in school.
