A book that you enjoyed reading because you had to think a lot

上期口语我们讲到了如何在Part 2时描述地点类的话题,这一期我们来学习一下如何描述物品类的话题。话不多说,我们直接进入主题!


Describe a book that you enjoyed reading because you had to think a lot.

You should say:

What this book was

Why you decided to read it

What reading this book made you think about

And explain why you enjoyed reading thisbook.


相信同学们在拿到题目时,脑海中都会或多或少地涌现出书本的名称。它也许是我们童年时期阅读过的故事书,也可能是我们在学术写作时遇到的一本专业的书籍,抑或是刷抖音时无意中了解到的书……无论它是怎么一本书,我们在描述的时候必须要把题目中的问题都涵盖在里面:

① 这本书是什么

② 为什么要读这本书

③ 这本书的哪一部份让你陷入了思考

④ 解释你为什么很享受阅读这本书



01

What this book was

看到这个问题时,相信很多同学都会直接报上书名,然后开始下面几个问题的回答。然而,如此粗略地回答第一个问题,不仅可能会让我们描述时间大大减少,还会让考官觉得我们的内容不够充实。因此,除了介绍出名之外,我们可以同时补充上作者的名称以及出版的年份。


Example:

[书名] The book that I enjoyed reading was ‘Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption’.

[作者] It was written by an American author named ‘Laura Hillenbrand’.

[年份] This book was published in 2014.


02

Why you decided to read it

在描述原因时,我们可以说是朋友或者平台推荐,也可以说是老师要求我们在假期完成的一次阅读……为了做适当的补充,我们可以在描述时把我们第一次了解到这本书时的情况也选择性地概括出来。

 

Example:

[第一次了解这本书时的介绍:] When I was browsing the Tiktok on my phone, an advertisement suddenly popped out and I was appealed by the cover of the book at that time. So I instantly clicked in and took a look.

[具体原因] Noticing that this book was so encouraging and there were so many positive commends below, I decided to give it a try.


03

What reading this book made you think a lot

因为这个问题考得相对而言是比较细了,要求考生对书的内容有一个较为清楚而又细致的了解,因此这个问题其实并不好回答。如果书上的某部分内容的确让你印象深刻,陷入思考,那么同学们可以自信地描述出来。对于那些不了解书籍的同学们而言,我们可以把日常生活中的一些例子当作是书的一部分内容去描述,因此在考试时灵活处理,不必过于紧张。

 

Example:

[虽然处于惊险且困难重重的时刻,但主人公凭借自己的毅力解决一切] In this book, although the leading character survived with the help of a founding life raft after his air force bomber crashed into the ocean, he faced numerous dangers, such as thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation. However, rather than giving up, he still bravely dealt with all the difficulties with his endurance, resolve and ingenuity. His story resonates with our daily life and really makes me think deeply.


04

Explain why you enjoy reading this book

相信这个问题对许多同学来说都算是比较简单的了。毫无疑问,当被问及为什么享受做一件事的时候,答案都是相似的:这件事情很有趣;很值得做;让你感到心情愉悦……那么回归主题,我们享受看书的原因也是类似的,如能够充实生活,消磨时间;能够鼓励你更加勇敢地面对生活的困难……也就是说,这个题目我们可以理解成“看书的意义”。

 

Example:

[看这本书的意义] Well, there are many reasons why I enjoyed reading this book. For example, I believe that reading this book can while away my time as well as enrich my daily life. But the most important one is because of the dangerous but encouraging story in the book. By reading this book, I start to think in depth in my life and it seems that I am given the power to face all the difficulties. This book is really meaningful and worth reading, so I extremely enjoy reading this book.


通过以上的详细分析,我们这道题的答案已经出来了。让我们一起看看如何把它们贯穿起来表达吧!


Today, the book I would like to talk about is called ‘Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption’. Published in 2014, this book was written by an American author named ‘Laura Hillenbrand’.


I still remember that when I was browsing the Tiktok on my phone, an advertisement suddenly popped out and I was appealed by the cover of the book at that time.
