单曦老师-雅思口语机经Part 1高频话题 —— 公寓改造的思路
2019-03-01 09:47:38
2019年三月雅思机经Part 1有一道高频题目:What needs to be improved of your flat?  现在,房价很高,买大house的毕竟是少数,大多数人还是住在自购或者租住的公寓里。那么,改造公寓有哪些高分思路呢?下面,老师将提示出思路和词汇,请大家跟我一起打造属于你的8分答案吧!
 
1. 许多人只有一个二手的小房子(a previously owned flat),那我们可以完全重装修(redo),也可以保留原样(keep the toilet and kitchen as they are),或者刷个墙(repaint the wall)、买点新家具、装个新地毯(install a new carpet)。答案如下:
 
Actually my house is a  previously owned one and I bought it last year. I plan to redo the bedroom,but keep the toilet and kitchen as they are. As for the living room, I will repaint the wall, install a new carpet and buy a new sofa.
 
老师解析得分点:actually 开头接地气;redo、 install是具体话题词汇,说对了词汇加分;整体公寓改造具体分三种,用到了拆分的思路,很具体;as for 连贯正确!
 
2. 烤鸭当中,租房一族有不少,因为 I have no money to buy my own place,苦笑脸。不过,热爱生活的你可以买点多肉植物(succulent plant) 等家养植物(house plant)或者新鲜花朵( fresh - cut flowers),在墙上挂些画、照片免得墙光秃秃的(to keep the walls from looking too bare.)去宜家买个地毯(a rug),在上面读书、放松(relax and refresh yourself)、顺便也可以做平板支撑、俯卧撑保持健康(hold planks or do push ups to keep fit)。最后,不要的都扔了(remove),例如你很少看的书、几年不穿的衣服(此处有定语从句)不要做一个囤积者(hoarder),也可以让生活更加宽敞舒心(spacious and cozy)。这个思路说出来是这样:
 
Actually I have no money to buy my own place but I am really fond of making some change/switching things up to my rent flat. First, to beautify my house,I can buy some fresh - cut flowers or house plants to decorate my house. Plus ,I can use some photos and frames to keep the walls from looking too bare. I also want to and add a large rug or other floor covering to make the room more cozy for me to refresh and relax myself or to hold planks or do push ups to keep fit. Lastly, I will take away useless stuff,like getting rid of the clothes which I seldom wear or the books I no longer read.This way, my room will be more spacious.
 
老师解析得分点:首先,能增加生活情趣的素材都给你了。至于用不用说这么多,看你的流利度,注意,Part 1流利是王道!如果买花说得最流利,其它不流利,就只说一点,说到极致也是极好的!这个答案中,词组和搭配有:be fond of doing (喜欢做某事)、switch things up(口语,就是改变的意思,这个词组偏美式英语,如果英式英语可以说make some change)、keep...from being +adj.(防止某物是......的)、拿走(take away, get rid of),生活话题的词汇地毯、相框、仰卧起坐、平板支撑、舒适的(不光是comfortable,可以说cozy)、宽敞的(spacious);其中,动词放松自在(relax and refresh)使用了押头韵(alliteration)的修辞,都是“re”开头。另外,first, plus, also, lastly也是老师上课反复强调的时间顺序词。虽然简单,表达效果妥妥的!
 
3. 哪儿不好改哪儿。—— 这种另辟蹊径的思路,需要词汇去支撑!首先,我可以具体化房子的缺点,例如:最大的缺点是厨房太老太丑,那么就让房东(landlord)重装(redo)? 不大可能哈,除非续约三年(renew the lease for three years)否则没得商量。那就花点小钱,进行一些临时的升级(perform some temporary upgrades)吧,比如自己买个洗碗机(adding a dish washing machine)。
 
The major downside of my apartment is that the kitchen is too old and not as nice and as I expected. Now that my rent is short, so will just perform some temporary upgrades like adding a dish washing machine out there but if I renew the lease for three years, I probably will ask my landlord to redo the kitchen.
 
老师解析得分点:...is that 是我们常用的表语从句句型,但是在这个答案中,that 后面跟两个并列的内容,就一句话说到两个平行的方面了;as ...as I expected 是常用句型;now that 表示因为,等于since;这个答案整体分了两种情况,一种实际,一种假设,比较具体。另外,perform some temporary upgrades 是“不进行大装修,只是小小提升一下”的意思,你记住了吗?
 
4. 用个性打动考官!例如,我是一个环保主义者!我知道很多环保的小妙招可以在家实行(Many energy-saving tips are applicable to apartment living)。空调恒温器有的同学知道,大概四五十美元,可以在屋里没人或者人睡觉的时候调节温度、舒适省电,我可以买一个;其次,我可以问问房东,把旧灯泡卸了(tear apart),换用节能灯泡(energy efficient light bulbs)。
 
Since I am a pro-environment person, some energy-saving measures are easy to pull off in my apartment. For example, I will install a programmable thermostat to my air conditioner, which can adjust the temperature when I am out of the house or asleep. Also, I will use energy efficient light bulbs ——of course,I’ll have to check with my landlord before tearing apart the old bulb.
 
老师解析得分点:since 表示原因,pull off是口语词组,意思是“成功实行、achieve a goal”的意思。例如:they pulled off a victory。这个答题比较具体,两点之间用also 连接;第一点用which说明programmable thermostat的好处,第二点插入了自己要跟房东商量确认(check),显得答案具体可行、回答游刃有余。加上环保的人设,就更容易赢得考官的好感了!
 
以上我们通过一道题入手,分析了高分口语Part 1的思路和得分点,希望同学们有所收获!~
