掌握这6个词,雅思口语考试不怕冷场!

青岛汤姆英语2018年10月11日

雅思考试中突然卡壳怎么办,尴尬的气氛想必想想都感觉不寒而栗,冷场出现怎么应对呢?很多烤鸭可能常常会遇到这样的问题:明明考前的准备已经非常充分了,但是在口语对话中总会突然卡壳,陷入冷场的尴尬中!下面就为大家介绍几个常用可以解决冷场的词汇。

1.available

使用频率:★★★★★

造句功能:★★★★

西方思维:★★★★★

 这个词有点怪,是形容词,但是一般放到所修饰的词后面。凡句子中含有“有……可以用到”的时候都可以考虑这个词。这个词关系到我们思维方式,而不是这个词用法有多复杂。反义词是unavailable。

 1、对不起,没座了。

Chinglish: Sorry, we have no seats now.

Revision: Sorry, no seats available.

 2、网站暂时无法访问。

Chinglish: This website can't be visited temporarily.

Revision: Website Temporarily Unavailable.

有时候尽管不是非用available/unavailable不可,但是多用一些,看起来更正宗~

2. offer

使用频率:★★★★

造句功能:★★★

西方思维:★★★★★

 这个词比较微妙。英译中时不太好处理,正因如此,这个词才值得我们重视。

 1、谢谢你的好意,不过我可以走回去。

Chinglish: Thank you for your good will, but I can go home on foot.

Revision: Thanks for your offer, but I can walk home.

 2、全国人民纷纷向灾区伸出了援助之手。

Version 1: People from all over the country all giving their hands to the disaster area.

Alt Version: People from all over the country are offering helping hands to the disaster area.

 Offer可以做动词用,也可以做名词用。还有一些固定搭配,其中Job offer非常红。凡是带有“给予”、“善意提供的(帮忙)”等意思,就可以考虑offer这个词。

我们可以把give一些空间让点给offer:

 这个机会可是我最后给你的。答应不答应随你的便。

This is my last offer to you. Take it or leave it.

3. Difference

使用频率:★★★★

造句功能:★★

西方思维:★★★★★

 意思是差别。对于difference只需要掌握一到两个短语,我们口语水平就会前进一大步,让考官对你刮目相看,那就是make a difference(有很大不同)或make no differences(没什么不同)。

 1、你说的什么移动、联通, 我看还不一路货色。

You're talking about Telecom and Unicom. The way I see it, they make no differences at all.

 2、这种化妆品你用用看,效果绝对不一样。

Chinglish: Please use this kind of cosmetics, the effect is absolutely different.

Revision: Please try this sort of cosmetics, i bet it'll make a big difference.

 3、上帝啊,再给我一次机会,我不会再这样了。

Chinglish: God, please give me a chance again, I won't do this again.

Revision: God, please grant me another chance, and I'll make a difference.

 凡是一样不一样,都可以考虑这两个短语,绝对可以make a difference!

 西方人崇尚个人奋斗,追求与他人不一样。这个词,对于他们来说,太神圣了。所以以后有条件,我们就要make a difference,没有条件时,创建条件也要make a difference。

4. sense

 使用频率:★★★

造句功能:★★

西方思维:★★★★★

 这个词主要由于几个相关短语而流行的。

这几个短语分别是: a sense of (responsibility, humor...)---有幽默感等, make sense/not make any sense,有意义,没意义(所以我说别老用meaningless,不是人家听不懂,那很中式的)。

 1、我很喜欢他。他很有幽默感。

Chinglish: I very like him. He is very humorous.

Revision: I like him very much. He has a good sense of humor.

 2、我知道,不过有的地方没什么意义。

Chinglish: I know, but it's meaningless in some places.

Revision: I know, but again at some point it doesn't make any sense.

 3、什么?至少六周?这样做有什么意义呢?

What? at least 6 weeks? Does it make any sense?(或what's your point?)

 5. afford

 使用频率:★★★

造句功能:★★★

西方思维:★★★★★

 意思是买的起,付得起、花得起时间、金钱、精力等。

但是Afford只能表示能力,不表示意愿。例如我们可以说I'm willing to pay, but I really can't afford it,而不能说I'm willing to afford it。

用好这个词,我们的水平就会提高一个档次,让你的同学打心底里佩服。

 1、这顶帽子贵得也太离谱了,我买不起。

Chinglish: This hat is extremely expensive, I can't buy it.

Revision: This hat is so expensive that I can't afford it.

 2、这个村子里好多儿童都上不起学。

Chinglish: Lots of kids can't go to school because they're poor. (意思表达出来了但是不精练)

Revision: Plenty of kids in this village can't afford to go to school (can't afford education).

 6. deserve

 使用频率:★★

造句功能:★★

西方思维:★★★★★

这个词字面意思是“值得”、“该受到”,可褒可贬。用到的场合其实挺多的。几个例句就可以解决问题。

 1、你是老鼠戏猫,真是自作自受!

Chinglish: You're like a rat teasing a cat... (...下面不会了)

Revision: I think you're playing with fire. You deserve it!

 2、那个好心女孩终于嫁给了她的心上人。她是有好报。

Chinglish: That good-hearted girl was married to the man in her heart at last. She was good so she had a good end.

Revision: That good-hearted girl married her 'prince' finally. She deserved it.

 3、你竟敢这样对我?找打啊?

Chinglish: How dare you do this to me? Do you want me to beat you?

Revision: How dare you do this to me? You deserve a kick in the ass!

考试冷场不可怕,怕的是自乱阵脚,希望大家能熟记应用以上几个词汇,让雅思成绩上一个台阶!
