 “你考雅思最尴尬的瞬间是什么时候?”最尴尬的应该是考官问到一些奇怪的问题时,而你张不开嘴,无话可说,空气突然安静...


  今天Constance老师就来教你破局!


  Are you good at telling jokes?

  考虑到考试这种场合的正式性,当然都希望表示正面的态度,但是这道题却很难描述自己为何如此“天赋异禀”。对于"telling jokes"这个话题,其实我们可以从口才角度入手,不如试试从be good at using communication skill上出发。


  正面态度的参考表达

  I'd say yes as I have a good sense of comedic timing, like, I know how to use“the pause”magically, but I don't think I can tell structured jokes perfectly, probably because I only have a knack for natural funny. The most important thing to remember here is to relate the target to the person you're telling the joke to, which is a means of communication skill after all.


  但是,也有的同学想有更符合实际情况的表述,毕竟不是每个同学都擅长"telling jokes",也可以尝试更接地气的角度,再加上地道的表达,例如:suck at sth. 在某方面烂透了,screw sth. up 搞砸某事。


  反面态度的参考表达

  Hooyea, definitely not! I suck at it. I'd say I'm the kind of person who is the "queen of joke butchering" since I always either start laughing while telling it or I will forget the punchline, and you know, in the end, I just screw it up. But I'm not saying that I won't have another go some other day.

  What do you think of newspaper ?


  其实最让人恐慌就是这种仿佛“四大皆空”的题目。正如我们今天的标题,你就是你,不需要为了答题去编造。我们同样可以通过语言表达真诚地面对难搞的话题。


  反面态度的参考表达

  It's okay…Frankly speaking, I can take it or leave it. Looking back upon the generation when we still had children on the street corner shouting “Read all about it!”, that was the time when nothing more than newspapers existed, but you know, I can get the whole world in my smartphone now so though I won't say it's out of date now, I have to admit that it's just not my cup of tea.

  How do you feel when people welcome you?

  有的同学可能会对于这个"welcome me"感到疑惑,但其实雅思口语更注重的是考生自己的理解和表达,不如聊一聊每次被迎宾都只想马上隐形的想法—Where is my invisibility cloak(隐身衣)?


  参考表达

  Well, it only reminds me of the time when I meet waiters in a hot pot restaurant. They ask a lot of questions, laugh a lot, and strike up superficial conversations to, hopefully, connect with me. But generally, not only am I not interested in this kind of behavior but also I'm draining to take part in these. I know it might sound a little childish, but I really want my invisibility cloak.


  不知道你有没有发现,真情实感的回答比“巧言令色”更能打动人心,也更能让考官发现你的闪光点哦~
