雅思口說高頻率主題-生活實用篇

跟著影集學怎麼有趣描述你的家!


雅思口說part 1常見四大主題:工作 work、學業 study、家鄉 hometown、家 home,今天要來帶大家看「家home」這個主題!


有關「家home」的常見雅思口說問題:

Do you live in a house or an apartment?

What is your favorite room?

What do you like about your house?

Would you change anything about your home? Why / why not?

Would you like to move to a different home in the future?

What facilities are there near your house? …


甚至part 2 也有可能會遇到喔!例如:

Describe a home that you lived in

You should say:

– what the home looks like – what you like about this home – where this home was located

and explain how you feel about living in this home


很多學生都跟堡師反應,覺得自己的房間或家沒什麼特別的,不知道要描述什麼,或是不知道怎麼具體描述房間內有特色的亮點,這篇文章帶你們跟著影集「短租潛力股stay here」挖掘生活實用單字,並運用到雅思口說中,跟我們一起從生活日常中找機會練口說吧!

(對了!「奧斯汀水池 Austin Pool Pad」有作成獨立的一篇放在IG上喔,想看圖學英文可以去看看,印象會更深刻)

堡師回答示範:

Would you change anything about your home?

  • Actually, I’ve been meaning to renovate my kitchen since I moved in last year. All the appliances in the kitchen are old and broken and they need updating. Also I want to open it up to make it look bigger.

*open kitchen 開放式廚房

  • No! I really love the house I live now. It’s tiny but comfortable and cozy. But I would probably spend some money repainting the walls to create a more modern and contemporary vibe in my house.

Would you like to move to a different home in the future?

  • Yes, I would like to move to a bigger house, since the place I currently live is so tight and crammed for four people in the family.


  • Definitely! I’ve always wanted to live in a property that is unique and fun like a houseboat! Especially a houseboat with city and waterfront views. I can even imagine myself now sitting on the rooftop deck, enjoying the view of city skyline.

Are there many amenities?***

  • Yes, my house is located in the city center, so everything is within reach like gyms, restaurants and lots of stores. And I have to mention. Just right down the street where my house is, there is a super famous farmer’s market full of local treats and goodies.

***amenity 這個字在雅思考試中很常出現喔!但很多學生對這個字的概念還是很模糊,我們來看一下Cambridge dictionary給的英文定義:something such as swimming pool or shopping area that is intended to make life more pleasant or convenient for people in a town, hotel, or other place. 所以其實指的就是你生活環境周遭有的一些設施,讓你的生活變得更加便利。

另外,amenity也可以當成是一個地方提供額外的東西,使得你的體驗變得更好,例如飯店會額外提供shampoo, free Wi-Fi, a fitness center, free parking…這些都是amenities,又或是健身房會提供water bottles, snacks, showers…,也都可以看成是amenities。


奧斯汀水池Austin Pool Pad

堡師回答示範:

What do you like about your house?

First, I like the fact that my house is a small cottage set back from the road with beautiful white picket fence in front of it. But my favorite part is definitely the backyard. I have a big pool and a hot tub in the backyard. In the summer I enjoy relaxing on the patio, sitting in the sunshine. I often set up the barbecue there, enjoy cooking and eating meals with my family and friends out in the fresh air. There is also a poolside cabana where you can hide to get out of the sun. My backyard really gives me a perfect outdoor living space and this is what I like the most about my house.


大家覺得跟著影集學英文這系列好玩嗎,是不是瞬間多了很多字彙量,而且百分百實用!


很多這種生活中的單字,跟歐美生活態度、文化習慣息息相關,有時候中文翻譯不一定能夠完美表達背後的意思及概念,但透過影集可以讓你一窺他們的生活,進而捕捉到文字裡面所包含一整個群體的文化(原諒堡師沈浸在語言的美妙中)。


堡師好奇大家會怎麼運用這些字彙到你的口說當中,歡迎到底下留言練習看看吧~~
