1. What’s your favourite colour? Analysis: 往年和今年的高频回归题。 Sample answer: Well to be honest, I don’t really have a favourite colour but I guess that if we were buying clothes, then I’d actually go for something like blue or grey. You know, kind of dull colours, nothing too bright. 2. What colour do you prefer when you buy a new car? Analysis:看起来是直接回答其实这个是假设题。 Sample answer: I’m pretty broke at the moment, but if I could buy a car in the near future, I would definitely go for a hue of red as it reminds me of the red carpet treatment I received when I went to a car show a few years ago. 3. Do you prefer light or dark colours? Analysis: 选择题话题。 Sample answer: Definitely dark colours as it reminds me of my bank account. If my account is in the black it signifies that I don’t owe anyone any money and I’m debt free! Furthermore, light colours aren’t really up my street.
此次考试是二月的后一场考试，考试的题库也稳定下来，但是重要的是让我们看到雅思官方对雅思口语在2015年的改变。 对于part 1, 雅思官方没有按照以前重点使用新题的习惯而是采用了多元化题目来考查考生们的短问题回答能力。虽然听起来难度是有所提升，但是题型大致上没有什么改变。所以，一定要按照个人的经历来回答，这样才能创造一个自然而个性化的答案。 至于part 2, 题库也稳定下来，所有五十多套题的浮出水面。但值得注意的是但但在厦门，此次考试的口语part 2部分就出现了接近30套不同的题目。什么高频，低频题已经是历史因为每套题都有机会出现。各位考生准备的时候必须要每个有机会出现的题目都了解一下，这样才能做到万无一失。 来到后一个部分, 我们发现很多同学都因为过度准备了part 1和part 2，在part 3表现就立刻沉下去。这些错误大部分都出现在grammar和lexical resource里。建议大家必须要把每个部分都准备好，不要忘记part 3是占口语考试的三分之一。平时应多分析和讨论一下有争议性的话题，扩展自己的国际思维。 总体来说，我们看到雅思官方很强调一个概念就是naturalness. 大家要在part 1拿的话必须要把每个话题的单词和想法融会贯通。对于part 2, 各位同学们真的要多了解新旧题的概念并和拼起来温习。
