记得有句话是这么说的“要么读书,要么旅行,身体和灵魂,必须有一个在路上”。人们对旅行的憧憬,非常容易联想到的是“阳光,沙滩,酒店,泳池”等关键字。旅行的意义在于,旅行本身就是一种享受,而这个过程中,可以逃避原本生活的压力,领略全新的生活,感受不一样的生活方式以及品尝各地的美食和小吃。旅行类话题一直是雅思口语中经典永恒的主题,在每阶段考试中均以各种各样的形式出现。

 

本文从近期的旅行类话题“特殊的旅行”出发,将从不同的角度剖析“旅行的特殊之处”,在如何突出“特殊性”上给各位考生灵感及思路上的建议,从而帮助各位考生更好的诠释本题。

 

旅行类相关话题:

Describe a country you want to go to but haven’t been to(想去而未去的国家)

Describe a place near water (such as river, lake, and ocean)(近水之地)

Describe a long car journey you went on(长途自驾游)

Describe a short vocation you were impressed(短途旅行)

Describe a special trip you would like to go in the future(未来想去的特殊的旅行)

 

旅行的元素:

 

关键字No.1 交通工具:自驾游,房车游

 

Vocabulary:

self-driving travels/road trips 自驾游

SUV (super utility vehicle) 多功能车

touring car/camper/caravan/recreational vehicle 房车

 

关于房车的英文表达,选择比较多。其中,在欧洲,用于旅行用途的房车叫作caravan, 其实就是大篷车的意思。例如:Mike was on a caravanning holiday.(迈克驾驶房车出去旅行了)。

 

而recreational vehicle, 就是时常可以在美剧中听到的名词“RV”的全称。因为在欧美发达国家,每到周末的时候,房车就会愉快飞驰在各条公路上。在西方国家,开着房车旅行似乎已经成为人们周末或假期的休闲娱乐的一种方式。

 

wagon 旅行车

这是一种以轿车为基础,而后备箱储物空间比较大的车型。在西方国家,打出租公司预定电话提前预定用车的时候,尤其是一些去机场的旅客们会尤其指定该类车型,主要原因就是考虑到储物空间大可以放更多的行李。而在中国,该类车型的出租车几乎不怎么见得到。

 

关键字No. 2特别的住宿:www.Airbnb.com

关于旅行的住宿,传统意义上第一能想到的肯定是“hotel”这个词。除了“hotel”这么一个单词以外,我们还可以来看一些其他的分类:

B&B (bed and breakfast) 提供住宿和早餐

boutique hotel 精品酒店

resort 度假村

hostel/youth hostel 青年旅社

 

当然,如果想打破这些传统的住宿方式,尝试全新的住宿体验,那么就推荐www.Airbnb.com 这个网站。在这个网站上,可以体验住神奇的树屋(wooden house),被小鸟叫醒;也可以住阿姆斯特丹的船屋(boathouse), 体验水城的独特风韵;当然,还有现代主义风格的别墅(Villa), 体验高档风景的绝赞。

 

关键字No.3旅行的形式:穷游,出境游

Vocabulary:

independent travel 自由行

outbound tourism 出境游

package tour 跟团游

in-depth travel 深度游

travel on a budget 穷游

budget traveller 穷游旅行者

backpacker 背包客

tour pal 驴友

easier visa procedures 简化签证手续

 

随着网络以及信息化的进步,人们在选择出行的时候,已经不再依靠旅行社的package tour。人们更多的可以利用类似于“携程网”之类的网站自己预定旅行的机票,住宿,接机等服务。时下,跟着旅行团走马观花赶景点或者在旅途中被迫消费等方式已经越来越不为人们所接受,人们追求的则是“自由行”,“深度游”等。

 

关键字No. 4目的地的选择:小众之地,农家乐

less-known places 小众之地

farm stay 农家乐

domestic place 国内的地方

old town 古城

over commercialization 过于商业化

 

对于目的地的选择上,那些过渡开发或者过于商业化的成熟景点也越来越不能满足人们的品味。相比于拥挤和吵杂的热门景点,人们似乎更愿意选择安静和有待探索的小众之地。

 

结合上述关键字的补充,以下,我们来分析一篇近期的旅行类话题“特别的旅行”。

 

Topic analysis:

Describe a special trip you would like to go on in the future

You should say:

Where this place is

Who you would like to go with

What would you do there

And explain why this would be a special trip

 

Sample answer:

If I have to say a few words on a special trip that I would like to go on in the future, I would like to bring up the trip to Tasmania in Australia.

 

Tasmania is a separate island in south of Australia, which is known as the heart of the world. Actually, I have spent two years study in Australia, however, I have never been to this must-go destination.

 

After hard working for the whole year, recently, I would like to have my annual leave. Therefore, the idea of going to Tasmania suddenly popped up in my mind. I would like to go with my best friend, who is a senior traveller. She’s really good at scheduling trips by her-self instead of booking the package tour in travel agency.

 

As my friend suggested, we would rent a SUV and have a self-driving trip around the island. The highlight of the trip would be we will not book the traditional hotel in Tasmania, instead, we would like to try boathouse through the help of a useful website called ‘Airbnb’, which is a website can provide unique service of booking unusual accommodations, such as a wooden house in amazon forest, a boathouse in Perth, and even a cave hotel in Cappadocia of Turkey.

 

As for why this trip would be a special trip, I think the reason is very obvious. Currently, people are increasingly getting no longer satisfied with just sightseeing trips. I am sure our well-organized plan and the special accommodation would definitely make the trip unique.

 

本文选取了雅思口语Part 2常考话题门类“旅行类”话题,从构成旅行的元素为出发点,为考生们整理罗列了常用词汇。在此基础上,并重点分析了时下的口语考题“特别的旅行”,列举了澳大利亚塔斯马尼亚的环岛自驾游以及特色的船屋住宿等内容。相信恰当的用词以及新颖的旅行概念一定可以征服考官,也希望给各位雅思考生们提供参考和帮助。
