PART 1-事物类-公园和花园

1.Would you like to play in a public garden or park?

Well, I would prefer to play in the park, since there are many different things that you can do. For example, you can bring a ball along and play sports such as football with your friends. Or you could even go for a run and get some exercise in. You can also lie down on the grass and relax if you want.

  • go for a run 出去跑跑
  • lie down on the grass 在草上躺着

2.What do you like to do when visiting a park?

You see, I typically like to read a book when I am at the park, especially when it’s a nice, sunny day. I’d say most parks have a peaceful atmosphere to them, so it makes for a good location to read in. When I stop reading, I generally love ending my visit with a small walk.

  • typically 通常
  • peaceful atmosphere 平静的氛围

3.How are the parks today different from those you visited as kid?

The biggest change that I’ve noticed is the decorations you find at the parks. When I was a kid, it was just a big, empty field where you could do whatever. Today though, there is more of an emphasis on making parks look high quality. You may find a water fountain that has been placed to make the park look nicer.

  • decorations 装饰
  • there is an emphasis on 在…重视
  • high quality 高质量
  • water fountain 喷泉

4.Would you prefer to play in a personal garden or public garden?

I’d have to go for a personal garden over a public one. My grandparents are into gardening and they have created a really beautiful garden. It took them years to do it, as well. Public gardens typically have a “don’t touch” policy, but my grandparents love to have me interact with and also play in their garden. It is more peaceful there.

  • take years to do it花很长时间做…
  • peaceful 平静的

PART 1-事物类-宠物和动物

1.What’s your favorite animal? Why?

My favourite animal is a dog. They are my favourite because dogs are loyal, like you can always count on them to be there for you and look out for you. I also love how dogs are caring. For instance, dogs can tell when you are upset and they will do everything they can to help comfort you.

  • loyal 忠诚
  • count on them 依靠他们
  • look out for you 照顾你

2.Where do you prefer to keep your pet, indoors or outdoors?

Well, I prefer to keep my pet indoors. You see, my dog is like family to me, so I like to make sure she is kept somewhere warm. However, let’s say I were to keep my pet outdoors, she would likely get cold or wet. This is okay in the summer, but it would be too cold in the winter.

  • like family to me 对我来说像家里人一样
  • likely 有可能

3.Have you ever had a pet before?

Let’s see, yeah I had a pet when I was growing up. My family owned a goldfish since my parents were always busy with work. A goldfish is very easy to take care of, which is basically why we got one. Like, all I had to do was feed it. You also don’t need to worry about taking them out for exercise.

  • goldfish 金鱼
  • feed 喂养

4.What is the most popular animal in China?

I would say that the Giant Panda is one of China’s most popular animals. Firstly, China has done plenty of work to stop the panda from being an endangered species and have finally done so. Secondly, they are very cute. Like, all my friends love them and I’ve never met someone who didn’t at least find them cute.

  • Giant Panda 大熊猫
  • plenty of 很多
  • endangered species 濒危物种

Part 1-事物类-钱包

  1. Do you use a wallet?

Yeah, I take my wallet with me everywhere I go. It’s pretty useful because I have all my necessary bank and ID cards in it. Even in the digital age, a wallet is still a very convenient item.

  • everywhere到处都
  • necessary bank必要的银行
  • digital age数字时代

2.Have you ever lost your wallet?

Luckily, I’ve never lost it. I have a friend who lost his wallet though, and it was quite scary for them. They had lots of cash and a credit card so they were worried their money would be stolen. Fortunately it was returned safely.

  • scary可怕的
  • be stolen被盗窃

3.Have you ever sent a wallet to someone as a gift?

Nah, I don’t feel like a wallet is a common gift and it seems pretty boring for a gift. I think that someone would probably receive a wallet as a gift from an older family member. For example, I once got one from a distant Aunt.

  • pretty相当的
  • receive收到

4.Do most of your friends use wallets?

Some of my male friends use wallets, yeah. However I see a lot of girls now will put bank cards and bank notes in their phone cases. I think that this is probably more practical and uses less space.

  • bank cards银行卡
  • bank notes银行票据
  • phone cases手机壳

PART 1 事物类-天空和星星

Q1:Do you like to look at the sky? Why?

I love to look at the sky. When I gaze into the sky, I can see so many beautiful stars or huge clouds. I often look up at the sky and daydream.

Q2:Can you see the moon and stars at night where you live?

Yeah, I can see the moon and stars when the sky is clear. However, sometimes there are too mаny clouds and I can’t see anything in the sky. I like to look at constellations, but I think they can be a bit difficult to find.

Q3:Do you prefer the sky in the morning or the sky at night?

I prefer the sky at night time. The stars are beautiful and fill my mind with wonder. They make me feel peaceful and calm. In the morning though, I like to see the sun rise and the colors in the clouds.

Q4:Do you want to live on another planet?

No, I would prefer to stay on earth. Although I could see many new things, it might be scary and too unfamiliar. It would also be odd to become accustomed to life on another planet. Also, I would miss my friends and family too much.
