莉莎供稿

  编者按:不管是在日常聊天,还是口语考试中,“交通”都是不断出现的话题。今天小编给大家分享了雅思口语考试中与交通有关的表达方法,快来学习吧!

  Q:

  What form of transportation

  do you usually use?

  答题技巧:先回答问题,再给出观点

  A1:公共交通

  I go for the bus quite often, because the public transportation system in my city is well developed and perfected. There are hundreds of bus lines available almost 20 hours a day that connect every part of the city.I can basically travel everywhere around the city by bus, and it only takes me 45 minutes to get to the suburbs from the central area.

  重点单词

  go for 选择

  well developed and perfected 很完善

  bus lines 巴士线路

  available 可用的;可获得的

  travel around 周围去

  the suburbs 郊区

  central area 市中心

  口语技巧

  第一句用了形容词“developed”和“perfected”,所以第二句要具体讲如何“developed”和“perfected”,将抽象的形容词用细节(多为名词)来具体化,否则内容会不充实。这里“hundreds of bus lines”、“almost 20 hours a day”、“connect every part of the city”都是“well developed and perfected”的体现。第三句在描述时继续用具体细节来展开,如“45 minutes”、“the suburbs”、“central area”等。

  A2:私家车

  I’d like to drive my car whenever I go out, since I enjoy the moment of being alone in my own space.At work, I get a pile of paperwork to deal with, such as reports, emails, and everything, for which I often have to work overtime. At home, there’re household chores waiting for me to do and family to take care of.But when driving, I can really loosen up, putting on some music and thinking about where I will be on my next holiday!

  重点单词

  go out 出门

  space 空间

  moment of being alone 私人时间

  a pile of 一大堆(非正式用语,作文不能写)

  paperwork 文书工作

  work overtime 加班(开OT)

  household chores 家庭杂务

  loosen up 放松

  口语技巧

  开车的时候完全就是私人的时间和空间。为什么喜欢自己一个人在车上?能干嘛?难道要干什么坏事吗?

  “Why”和“What”都是拓展话题常用切入点。用具体的细节表达出在车上和在家里或公司有什么不同。

  在回答Transportation这个话题时,尽量不要仅局限于说“convenient”、“fast”、“comfortable”等这类形容词,而是需要表达具体细节,例如自己的日常出行情况或对此的感觉。但细节的表达是在于有一定词汇量积累的基础上的,建议平时多积累关于Transportation的词。
