    Describe an unusual building you’ve visited
  You should say:
  where it is
  what it is used for
  what it looks like
  and explain why you think it is unusual
  话题考频:
  建筑物的话题一直是雅思口语话题的热门考题,有时考察的是历史建筑,有时考察的是现代建筑物,这个话题可以涵盖古今建筑,只要突出其“unusual/不同寻常”的特征即可
  相关考题:
  Describe a modern building
  Describe a historic building
  话题解析:
  1.在回答这个问题的时候,为了能详细且准确地介绍该建筑物,最好能提前准备一些与建筑物相关的一些词语,比如说“外部”、“内部”、“柱子”、“面”等等,因此,我们可以登陆我们感兴趣的建筑物的英文介绍页面,最好是官方的网站,把里面的一些介绍性的,可取的说法借用过来,这个也是我们所讲的考试前要做准备
  2.题目的核心词是“unusual”一字,所以我们在开头以及结尾的时候最好要突出该建筑物比较独特的地方,才能扣题
  3.在解释“为何我觉得此建筑物很独特”的时候,要注意关于原因的表达,因果关系要合乎逻辑,比如在接下来要说到的范文当中,小蛮腰造型奇特,且又是当地地表与娱乐场所,用以交代选择说小蛮腰的原因
  4.此话题将以广州的地标建筑广州塔作为范例,广州塔有一个外号叫“小蛮腰”,之所以叫这个名字是因为其独特的造型,同时它也是广州人休闲娱乐的好去处,元旦、农历新年、圣诞节也会有很多灯光秀活动,话题可延续性较强
  话题词汇参考:
  1.电视塔:TV tower
  2.小蛮腰:slender waist
  3.观光:sightseeing
  4.地点:venue
  5.摩天轮:ferris wheel
  6.(小蛮腰的)椭圆形的面:ellipse
  7.外部:exterior
  8.内部:interior
  9.多功能的:multi-functional
  我们可以这么说:
  Here I would like to talk about the Canton Tower in Guangzhou, which is one of the local landmarks and famous for its unique design and architecture. I’ve been there for several times and I will recommend it to every visitor to this city.
  The Canton Tower is actually an astronomical and sightseeing tower designed by Dutch architects, located on Haixinsha Island, which was originally the venue for the 2010 Asian Games. It made its name and be known of the whole Asia because of its unusual and special structure shown in the opening and closing ceremony of the Asian Games on TV. Locals give it a nickname as “the slender waist” because of its twisted structure. Its exterior form is generated by two ellipses, one at foundation level and the other one at top. These two ellipses are rotated relative to another, and the tightening caused by the rotation between the two ellipses forms a "waist"; so I think that’s the reason why it has such a vivid local name.
  I’ve visited the interior of the tower, which is pretty amazing as well. Inside, it is subdivided into different zones with various functions, including TV and radio transmission facilities, you know, as it is supposed to be, and observatory decks for you to admire the view of the whole city, the revolving restaurant, which I heard is pretty classy but I failed to try last time, horizontal ferris wheel, recommended as the best venue for proposal in the city, exhibition spaces, shops, and 4D cinemas etc. So you can say, it is a multi-functional place for our local people. And the most important thing is, you could enjoy wonderful landscape there! Therefore, I really think this unusual architecture is a good way for you to hang out with friends and appreciate the great beauty of the city.
