    在雅思口语第二部分的描述中,对人物的描述是考试的主流话题之一。人物描述出现的概率相当高,几乎在每个月的考试里都能遇到。
    一般来讲,人物描述的体现方式有以下几种:
普通人:a child / an old person / a favorite teacher / a close family member / a close friend
名人:a famous person / a leader/ a person you want to become one day/ a foreign celebrity/ an adventurous person
    在近期的雅思口语考试中,又出现了一些新的表现方式,如:an interesting person / a happy person等。不论是怎么样的表现形式,对于考生来说,只要掌握方法,都能逐一破解。
    有的考生可能会提出疑问,如果只是回答卡片上的几个问题,似乎很难达到2分钟的时间长度。那么,卡片上没有提到的方面,我可以进行描述吗?回答是肯定的。但是前提是,这些虽然不是卡片问题的内容,但也必须是和该卡片主体息息相关的信息。
    对于该人物的描述,考生需要注意以下2个方面:
1、尽量回答卡片上的所有问题
    一般卡片包含着4个问题,在笔记过程中应当以词语为基础来进行分解,常见问题为:
Who this person is(人物,e.g. my mother)
What he/she looks like(描述性词语,e.g. handsome, gorgeous, slender)
How he/she influenced you(介绍此人对自己的影响)
And explain why you like this person.(解释为什么那么喜欢这个人)
2、对卡片上没有提到信息进行拓展描述
    在准备的1分钟里面,考生可以将4个问题的答案以关键词的形式纪录在纸上,以起到提醒的作用,也可以帮助考生理清思路。然后结合自己的情况加入其他的描述(考生们背的套句,这时就可以用的到了)。
人物卡片举例如下:
★ 普通人
A happy person
Describe a happy person you know.
You should say:
who the person is
how you came to know him/her
whether you know him/her well
and explain what makes this person such a happy person.
 
 
 

Speaking of a happy person, I want to talk about my cousin Lily. She’s the happiest person I know, and everyone agrees that she has a great personality.
First of all, she’s extremely enthusiastic about everything and always eager to go out to meet new people. Besides, she’s full of energy and never tired. I have never heard her complain about anything, because she always looks at the bright side of things. Sometimes we tease her because she constantly has this big grin (=smile) on her face and can’t stop smiling.
Lily is going to turn 22 pretty soon, I think, and she studies in a prestigious (=famous) university in Beijing, so I don’t see her as often as I used to. But we often talk on the phone. She said that she did very well in her studies and made a lot of friends by taking part in numerous extra curriculum activities and last I heard she was dating a very cool guy too. I believe she’s got every reason to be happy, but it’s mostly because of her ability to remain positive.
She’s always optimistic and doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything. I remember, when she was in high school, she always told everyone that she would be okay in spite of all the homework and tests she had to face. On the other hand, she can cheer everyone up. Whenever I have a problem, she can always give me a useful advice. How considerate and reassuring she is!
Right now, she’s striving to become a pediatrician (=doctor for children). I think she’ll be a great doctor and teacher for kids, because her cheerfulness can be contagious(有感染力的). She always shares funny stories with us and makes us laugh. I think she’s a pleasure to spend time with.
A teacher
Describe a teacher you have had.
You should say:
who the teacher is
what the teacher is like
how he/she taught
and explain what effect the teacher had on you.
 
 
 

Talking about teachers in my life, l would like to mention Mr. Li who was my physics teacher at middle school in Shanghai. He is so important for me because he provided not only education but more critically, life guidance.
Mr. Li had his own way of teaching and seemed interested in all the members of the class -- the weaker students as well as the clever ones, which really impressed me. And he also had a good sense of humor. I thought physics could be pretty boring sometimes, but when he found we’d stopped paying attention, he’d tell us a quick joke, and that would wake us up and he could go on with the lesson. His teaching methodology was so versatile that we never felt bored. It was so fun!
Most importantly, he helped us learn what learning was all about. He taught us not only a subject, but also how to carry on learning about the subject after class. For example, he said that we should always try to keep an enquiring and open mind; physics wasn’t just a subject in textbook; it was a way of looking at the world and it could help us to understand the way in which the world worked. And many of us have benefited from this quite a lot because it changed our way of learning. I will always thank him for his devoted guide.
As the saying goes,” A mediocre teacher tells; a good teacher explains; a superior teacher demonstrates; and a great teacher inspires.” To me, he is the greatest teacher I have ever known.
