本次考试考题精选范例解析:

Describe a comic actor / cartoon character who is popular in your country.

You should say:

who the actor/character is

how you know him/her

what kind of person he/she is

and explain why he/she is popular in your country.

 

Analysis:

选择一个中国考生熟悉的喜剧人物会更容易拓展。

 

Sample Answer:

Ok right then, well the actor that I’ve decided to talk about is Zhou Xingchi, who, I think it’s fair to say, is one of the most famous and popular comedians in China.

 

You know, I’ve watched his films ever since I was a child, which I’m sure could also be said for the majority of people my age in China. And the reason is simply that he’s just so incredibly funny. I mean, whenever I watch his films, I can’t stop myself from laughing. And I’m not sure if you’ve watched any of his films before or not, but I guess you could compare him to Jim Carrey, in the sense that they can pull really funny faces. And that’s probably what sets him apart from most other comedians in China. You know, he’s got such an array of different facial expressions!

 

Anyway, as for what kind of person he is, well I don’t know him personally of course, but the impression I get of him is that he’s a very down-to-earth guy. So you know I mean, although he’s, like, super famous and mega rich, he seems to carry himself in a very unassuming manner. For example, in the interviews I’ve seen of him, he comes across as being a very modest and likeable guy, which can’t be said for a lot of celebrities you see on TV these days!

 

So yeah, that’s pretty much all there is to say really, and if you haven’t seen any of his films before, then you should definitely watch one.

 

Notes:

I think it’s fair to say – 我觉得可以说……

Jim Carrey - ·凯瑞, a famous Hollywood comedian

pull funny faces - 扮出可笑的鬼脸

his funny faces set him apart from other comedians – 他的鬼脸把他和别的喜剧演员区别了开来

an array of = a wide range of

the impression I get of him is that – 他给我的印象就是……

he’s a very down-to-earth guy - Not pretentious不炫耀的

like -(表示思考下面的话或用作口头禅)嗯,这个(一些人不喜欢此用法)Some people say like when they are thinking about what to say next or because it has become their habit to say it.

mega rich = extremely rich

he carries himself… - 他的举止行动……

unassuming - 谦逊的,不装腔作势的,不招摇的;

he comes across as – 他给人的印象是

that’s pretty much all there is to say really – 差不多就这样(没有别的话可说了!)
