Ø 下面我们看“Describe your favorite singer and explain why you like him/her.”这个题目怎么回答。
In terms of the singers I like, I think Wangfei is among one of my favorite ones. I like her for several reasons. First of all, she is very talented. She has the most beautiful voice I’ve ever heard. When hear her voice, I feel extremely calm and relaxed. Moreover, she is a brave girl when pursuing her dream. When she first started singing, she was not very popular. So she went to the US and learned a special way of singing and soon earned her fame in Asia. More importantly, her songs are always very inspiring and encouraging. Whenever I have difficulties, I can always find comfort and courage in her songs.
而考到历史人物，我们的思考方式就需要转变一下，描述这个人的身份，然后分条阐释他的功绩或成就，以及对自己的影响。例如“Describe a celebrity/a famous person in history you want to see most.”我们可以这样回答：
I want to see Confucius the most. He is the most famous thinker and educator in Ancient China. I admire him first because he advocated benevolence. According to Confucius, benevolence means courtesy, loyalty and unselfishness. He always told his students the importance to love other people, to treat other people like brothers and sisters. Secondly, he believed that people with lofty ideal will never give up righteousness to seek survive, but may sacrifice their lives for righteousness. Finally, Confucius believed in the dignity of people. He is against the ancient custom of burying ceramic tomb figures with dead, because he thinks it was disrespect to humans. In China, Confucius is still influencing how we think today.
在雅思口语题目当中，也会出现有关于leader的题目，有的会问一个好的leader应该具备的品质，相反，有的会问作文一个普通的team member应该具有的品质，当然，在Task2重，还会让你选择你愿意当leader还是supporting member。以下是一些例子：
Ø In your opinion, what are some important characteristics of a good leader? Use reasons and specific examples to explain why these qualities are important.
Ø Some people prefer to be a leader in a group project while others prefer to be a supporting member in a group project. Which do you prefer and why? Use examples and details in your explanation.
Ø In your opinion, what are some important qualities of a good team member? Use reasons and specific examples to explain why this characteristic is important.
“In your opinion, what are some important characteristics of a good leader?”
To me, a leader should bear the following good qualities. Firstly, a leader should have respect for his subordinates. The fundamental of any relationship is mutual respect. A leader without respect for the others cannot win others’ respect. Secondly, a leader should have good management skills. He should know quite well how to communicate with the subordinates and make them more productive. Finally, a leader should have adequate professional knowledge. A leader decides where the company should go, so he should know quite well about the business he is undertaking.
而跟leader对应的另外一种问题，“In your opinion, what are some important qualities of a good team member?”我们首先也需要brainstorm一下作为team member需要具备什么样的品质，才能让一个团队有效地运转呢？
In my opinion, the good characteristics for a person in a team should include reliability, loyalty, patience, skill of good communication and passion for work. First, a reliable and loyal team member will always get word done and meet the requirements. In addition, members in a team need to deal with affairs together so a good communication skill will be indispensable for a member to work with his colleagues efficiently. Besides, a person with great desire and passion will work positively and actively so the efficiency of the whole team can be improved. And great passion often makes the person strive for better performance and improvement of their products or service. In short, I think these are good characteristics of a team member.
