  Do you often buy mirrors?

  Where do you put mirrors?

  Do you think mirrors are a necessary decoration?

  1. Do you often look in the mirror?

  思路:可以回答经常照镜子,比如臭美一下,或者检查有没有眼屎,不然就丑大了;当然喜欢化浓妆的人,可能得经常照镜子,尤其是大热天和暴雨天,眼线很容易花的。如果有同学说不怎么照镜子,也是可以嗒,比如只有要挤脸上痘痘时才会想到去找别人借一下镜子。

  误区:即使平时不怎么照镜子,同学们也要试试进行一定的扩展,比如上一次照镜子或者无意中路过瞥了一眼是什么时候啦,都是可以的。

  语料:

  look into the mirror 照镜子

  every now and then 偶尔/有时

  check my make-up 检查妆容

  check my good looks 查看美丽的外表

  check how I look 检查下美不美

  hair style 发型

  with the help of… 在……的帮助下

  get rid of… = remove… 去掉……

  sleepies 眼屎

  stick around 粘着

  be addicted to… 沉迷于……

  get smudged 晕染了

  embarrass oneself 丢脸

  范例一:

  Well, sometimes! You know, I’m a lady and I’ve got to make sure I look good 24/7. Plus, every now and then I need to check if I’ve got any sleepies sticking around the corner of my eye.

  范例二:

  I guess so. You might not know this, but I’m quite addicted to heavy make-ups and that. So I kind of have to constantly check my face to see if I’ve got my eyeliners smudged. Otherwise I could potentially scare some people. Did that once actually. Was pouring that day, so my whole face was all gone.

  范例三:

  Not particularly. You know what, I don’t even own a mirror to be honest. But sometimes I do borrow other people’s mirror for a second just to check the spot on my face. Other than that, I don’t really spend much time looking in some mirrors.

  2. Do you often buy mirrors?

  思路:不怎么买镜子,我的大部分镜子都是免费的。要么是朋友给的,还有粉饼盒子,它们里面自带镜子的;或者是杂志里面送的赠品。

  误区:有的同学会就用粉饼盒子当镜子,但是英文又不确定怎么讲,没关系的,稍微解释一下就行‘I just use my face powder box or container, you know they always come with a powder puff as well as a mirror’

  语料:

  free gift 赠品

  cosmetic products 化妆品

  blusher 腮红

  foundation powder 粉饼

  plastic wrapping 塑料包装纸

  范例:

  Not at all. In fact, most of the mirrors I’ve got are free, I think. They are either from my friends or just came in some magazines, you know they always put some free gifts in the plastic wrapping.

  3. Where do you put mirrors?

  思路:可以按照化妆用的小镜子和放家里的大镜子一起分开讲。小镜子一般随身带,塞在手提包里就好了。放在室内的大镜子一般放在浴室啊,门口都行。但是不敢放一个大镜子在卧室,因为恐怖片看多了,害怕;也担心风水。

  误区:我们听到题目可能会有些困惑,不知道考官指的是什么镜子。其实这里也没有必要去问考官他或她指的是家里那种大镜子还是小镜子,直接自己分成两种情况去讲就好啦。

  语料:

  hang… on the wall 挂在墙上

  hang… in the bathroom 挂在浴室

  be scared 害怕

  horror films 恐怖片

  all those years 这么多年来

  avoid doing… 避免做……

  范例:

  Well, if you mean the baby ones for my make-ups and that, I always just stuff them in my handbag. But when it comes to the bigger mirrors, you know the ones you put in the house, I think I might prefer to have one on my bathroom wall or anywhere else except in my bedroom, cause I would be quite scared. You know, I’ve watched too many creepy horror films all those years.

  4. Do you think mirrors are a necessary decoration?

  思路:先回答yes,然后回答在很多商店都看到他们使用正面的镜子,让整个空间很大。所以自己也要在新的房子里安一个大镜子显得更宽敞。当然大家也可以回答no,说自己家都不用镜子。一般都在等公交车的时候对着车站牌检查发型。

  误区:对,大家没有看错,题目就是问镜子是不是一个必须的装饰物。其实可以嗒,大家想想很多商店都用镜子让整个店面显得更大更宽敞,对不对。

  语料:appear larger 显得更大

  look more spacious 看起来更宽敞

  the size of… 和……一样大

  范例:

  Well, they can be. I’ve seen a lot of shops using a massive mirror the size of a wall and surprisingly that does make the whole place appear twice larger. In fact, I might place some big ones in my new flat to make it look more spacious.
