传统话题涵盖的领域极为宽泛,无论是谈论人物、描述事物、还是叙述经历,tradition都是一个很活跃的展开点。比如要谈论活动(events),那么活动具有的传统习俗(traditional ritual)是一个较好的切入点;再比如谈论婚礼,传统婚礼模式(traditional wedding)和西方婚礼模式(western wedding)之间的差异和互补就是一个必讲的要点。

   上一讲中,我们讨论了传统话题在雅思口试阶段中出现的话题模式、答题要求及应对技巧和策略。在这一讲中,朗阁海外考试研究中心口语组的将继续探讨“传统”话题在口试第二、三阶段中所扮演的角色。笔者将按照“传统”话题系统分类,并进行一一列举,给出真题实例及参考答案。

 

   传统活动“对对碰”

   【Cue Card 1:

Describe an important traditional Chinese festival

You should mention:    when it is celebrated;

                            what activities are involved;

                                  what is the most interesting thing about it;

and explain what changes have taken place about this festival.

 

   分析:     考生首先需挑选某个节日

   Chinese traditional festival:

   Spring Festival(春节)、Mid-Autumn Festival(中秋节)、Dragon Boat festival(端午节)、Double Ninth Festival(重阳节)、Pure Brightness Festival(清明节)、Lantern Festival(元宵节)

 

   【回答 The Spring Festival is the most important traditional Chinese festival and it is also my favorite holiday. On New Year’s Eve, the whole family gets together and has a wonderful supper. After supper, the elders give the children lucky money with which the young can buy whatever they want. During the Spring Festival, people visit their relatives and wish each other ’Happy New Year’. Throughout the Spring Festival, everyone is much more friendly and kinder than at any other time of the year, and you feel that the world is full of love. During the Spring Festival, since there is no school, the children always walk in the streets in groups, singing and laughing. Sometimes they set off firecrackers and generally have a good time. The young always go shopping or go to the parks together, or they stay at home and enjoy special TV programs. There is a peaceful and happy atmosphere.

 

   扩展信息:   Changes about celebrating the festival:

    going out to have a get-together dinner or party in restaurants instead of big exhausting home dinner;

    making a phone call to one’s friends and relatives or sending e-mails or forwarding short messages by cell phone to express good wishes instead of troublesome visiting;

   ● taking the advantages of modern communication devices to improve the efficiency

 

   【Cue Card 2:

Describe a traditional event

You should say:           what is this traditional event;

                          when and where did it happen;

what do people usually do in this traditional event;

and explain why you think this traditional event is special.

 

   【回答 I am a firm believer of a saying” Culture is one of the very few things that can make people get obsessed with forever”. Indeed, it is like a fashion, like a trademark, like a time. It is Cambridge made me know about UK. It is Disney made me know about USA. It is Louis Vuitton made me know about France. Talking about interesting culture, I think the most impressive one is Chinese culture.(注意:本句为经典套句,可以模仿,但句式复杂,同类从句避免运用过多。作为开头,无需用例文中的所有排比句式,建议挑选用,不然显得累赘,不能马上切入主题。)Chinese wedding, as one of the most fantastic parts in (句式不错)Chinese culture, never fails to(双重否定表肯定=can always draw any attention anytime. Here I would like to tell you about two typical customs involved in Chinese wedding: the hair combing ceremony and door-game playing.

   Although it is not always performed today, it is a lovely ritual that got special meaning. Anyway, I would do it when I get married. The night before the wedding, the bride is supposed to bathe and then take a seat in front of lit candles. Her hair is combed four times by her mother. It is considered to be fortunate in life. The first combing symbolizes “from beginning to end”(一梳梳到底). The second means “harmony form youth though old”(二梳白发齐眉)
