雅思口语话题:Sleeping

中国雅思网 发表时间:2017年7月13日 来源:IELTS在线

  众所周知,雅思口语一直是雅思考试中的重难点。而sleeping,是雅思口语众多part 1题目中,很多学生抱怨,相对无话可说的一个主题。其实如果同学们掌握基本的思路扩展的方法,这个主题也就没有那么无语了。快跟小编一下来复习一下吧。

  1. How many hours do you sleep every day?

  2. Is it necessary to sleep enough?

  3. Is taking a nap important?

  4. Do old people sleep a lot?

  1. How many hours do you sleep every day?

  这道题是简单的信息问句, 同学们要给出对应的信息内容。但切记不要只说I sleep for 8hours 就没有了。后续要给出更细节的东西, 这里介绍给同学们一种方法:一切分情况讨论。

  可以借助频率词:usually,sometimes,once in a while,occasionally,或者是on weekdays ,on weekends,on holidays 等。

  通常我每天睡几个小时,几点到几点,还可以给出原因,对学生来说睡前完成作业,finish the homework and prepare for the next day。早晨起床花费多久到学校commuting to school,这些信息都很不错。也可以再给出一个其他的情况,周六日或者假期睡多久,给出细节,这样语言上会丰富很多。

  Actually,on weekdays,I usually sleep for just 6hours at most. Because I have to stay awake, finish my homework and prepare for the next school day until midnight and I must get up around 6:30 to fresh up myself then commute to school for 45mins. Fortunately, on weekends or holidays, I can stay in bed as long as I wish, maybe for 10 hours or even more.

  2. Is it necessary to sleep enough?

  这是一道必要性或者重要性的问题,对这一类问题一方面当然可以说明为什么有必要,对于本题就是have enough sleep 的好处:

  比如 storage up energy养精蓄锐; get a clear mind for the next day第二天精神状况更好等; 另一个也很容易描述的方面是:实际情况是怎样。也就是大家都知道这个很必要也很有好处,但现实情况下大家更多的还是怎样。 联系现实情况永远都是一个很不错的扩展方向。

  Sure, definitely. It’s extremely important to sleep for at least 7hours a day. So that one can storage up energy and get a clear mind for the next day. However, the fact is nothing like this. Almost everyone I know stays up quite late either having entertaining activities, playing smart phones or doing their job or homework. Lacking of bedtime is already a serious social problem nowadays.

  3. Is taking a nap important?

  这个题目跟上一道题答题的思路可以很一致,但是如果是出现在同一天的口试当中,同学们切记尽量不要去重复之前用过的语言,如果实在是想说的内容方向很一致那就反着说,前面说了睡眠充足会怎样,这里可以说如果不午休会怎样,状态不佳getting sleeping or dizzy这样语言也不会很重复。当然也可以用我们刚学的方法来结合现实。就你所知,大家是否午休,实际情况如何。

  或者可以表达相反的观点。虽然听说午睡有好处,但实际上不午睡也可以保持很好的状态stay quite vigorous and active,这样也不为一个顺畅的思路。 午休taking a short break in the midday.

  Honestly,I’m not so sure about this,I have heard that taking a short break in the midday prevents us from getting sleeping or dizzy in the afternoon.But in reality, the majority of my classmates including myself stay quite vigorous and active without it.So it might just be a personal thing I guess.

  4. Do old people sleep a lot?

  在part1 中,很多话题都会把主语转换为old people 或者kids 来进行提问。所以同学们还是要积累一下表示老年人的语言: the old, the aged,the senior,甚至也可以引入grandparents 这样的表述。

  回答本题目,这是一个询问现状的yes/no问题,切记在回答是否之后,自然要给出一系列细节事实状况,老年人睡眠其实很多,只是睡得早:go to bed so much earlier,大概几点就入睡,但是他们起来的很早,要去晨练 doing some morning exercise in the park ,早市买菜do some grocery shopping, like vegetables and meat for the family 之类的。顺便可以提一下,我们中国的老人需要照顾全家人这一个很有意思的现象。

  As far as I know, the old probably get more hours of sleep, maybe in average 8 hours. They wake up in the morning just as much earlier as they go to bed in the evening. Like my grandparents they start doing some morning exercise in the park with other aged friends at 6,and then go to do some grocery shopping for vegetables and meat for the family in the street market. It is a typical Chinese thing.
