雅思口语:describe a kind of vegetable or plant

来源:新东方 编辑:Vicki   VIP免费外教试听课 |  可可官方微信:ikekenet

  有关vegetable或者plant这道雅思口语题目,愁死了一大票娃,小时候好像貌似背过各种蔬菜的名字,但老师并没有教过描写这些蔬菜的素材…… 于是啊,推荐大家绕道走,多说说这个plant的特色或者功能,就不用纠结大大的叶子长长的根怎么说了。
  换个思路之后,我们就来想想一般plant的功能都有啥:首先,既然是plant,应该就能够作为木材,可以做成chopsticks啦,toothpick啦,chopping board/cutting board啦,或者flooring之类的。而且有些musical instrument也是需要木头的啊,例如drum啦,guitar啦啥的。当然,木质的furniture别忘了说。之后plant的叶子和果实也很有用啊,可以说是哪种动物的主食什么的。
  如果你特文艺,可以说说有某种寓意的植物,例如梅啦,松啦,柳啦,但是语文都没学好的孩子不太推荐这个打法。
  下面用竹子举个例子:
  When I saw this topic, the first thing that popped into my head is bamboo, which is a plant that has hard hollow stems and grows mainly in the south of China.
  In ancient Chinese poetry, those poets always compared righteous people to bamboo, 'cause they are tough and stand straight all the time, no matter how windy or stormy it is.
  And it's not uncommon for them to appear in Chinese artworks, 'cause they are well liked by artists because of their appearance and spirit.
  Besides, bamboo also plays a vital part in various aspects of our lives.
  For starters, bamboo raft is a major transport facility in the south of China where there are tons of lakes and rivers.
  Plus, it can be made into furniture. I have a chair made of bamboo, which is super durable and cool in hot summer. The best part is, it gives off a fragrant smell.
  My mom told me, those handmade bamboo furniture is really expensive compared to mass-produced ones, 'cause there's no poisonous chemicals, so you see, it's quite beneficial to our health.
  And also, some traditional Chinese musical instruments are made of bamboo, like flute, which really has a strong Chinese flavor.
  Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, it's pandas' staple diet, and bamboo groves are a perfect playground for pandas.
  And um... on top of that, bamboo shoots are quite palatable and nutritious.
  So, it's fair to say, bamboo is really an important plant in China.
  语言点解析:

  not uncommon = existing in large numbers or in many places 例如:

  The flowers gave off a fragrant perfume.
  The fire doesn't seem to be giving off much heat.
  mass-produced = produced in large quantities, using machinery 例如:
  mass-produced goods
  staple diet = the food that a person or an animal normally eats 例如:
