Part 1


Did you save money when you were young?


Well, I don’t think so. When I was a student, I remember I usually spent all the money given by my parents as they just gave me a certain sum of money for each month, so I just used all of them by the end of each month and then asked for more from them.

Do you think parents should teach children to save money?


Yes, I think so. It is essential for parents to teach their kids to save money because kids could learn how to manage their money in a wise way. Plus, they could also make better use of the saved money in their life.

How do you save money?


Well, as for me, I usually just put some of my money in my bank account from which I actually earn little interest. And at the same time, I also have some money in Alipay as I am pretty happy with the interest I earn every day.

Who tends to spend more money in your country, elder people or young people?


Well, I think it is definitely young people who tend to spend more money in my country as their generally hold a different attitude towards life from elder people. That is to say, they seem to believe that spending more money could greatly increase the level of their happiness, while elder people seem to lead a simple life which does not need much money.

Part 2

Describe a good service you received from a shop or company

You should say:

What the service was

When you received it

Who you were with

And explain how you felt about it


此话题属于“物品”类话题, 所要描述的是商店或者公司的某种服务, 属于虚拟物品;另外,我们使用的主要时态应该是“past tense”, 描述的这个服务是你已经体验过的;接着,我们看前三个“basic information”:这个服务具体是什么? 你什么时候接受的这个服务? 你和谁,或者在哪里接受的这个服务? 这里我们需要思考:它们之间是否存在某种 logical connection?或者可以给出哪些相关的拓展信息? 比如, 在介绍这个服务具体内容的时候, 是不是可以顺便交代接受这个服务的时间(可能因为服务时间的特殊性使服务内容具备某种特色等);

到最后解释,说明的部分,大家需要展开说明针对这项服务, 你的感受是什么, 并且需要交代为什么会有这样的感受等等。


Well, speaking of a good service I once received, I must say it was from a restaurant which I went to with a couple of my playmates from my childhood last Spring Festival during a visit to my parents. It was actually a hotpot place which is usually quite popular for friends’ get-together.

To tell you the truth, I was not able to go back to my hometown and hang out with my friends ever since I left college and started working in Beijing. Therefore, I began to plan this reunion two months in advance, and finally we all agreed that we would go to a hotpot place to catch up.

After we arrived at this place, there was honestly nothing special about their food or anything. However, one spectacular service they provided for each table was really impressive, and also quite unexpected to us, to be frank.

Instead of saying it was a service, I would rather describe it as a kind of performance in which one of their skilled waiters began dancing with a long piece of noodle flying in his hands, and what was even more enjoyable was that his dancing gesture with the flying noodle went so harmoniously with the rhythm of the music.

Watching all this really brought so much fun to us. I have to admit it was a really special reunion that I had with my friends, because not only did we enjoy the chat about the changes we had since college while eating nice food, but also we felt so lucky to have the opportunity to see such a wonderful show, which actually made our time more pleasant and unforgettable.


①spectacular: 形容词,壮观的 惊人的

Eg:With the spectacular views during that trip, each of us was really pleased.

②gesture: 名词;姿态 手势

Eg:Whenever we have any difficult time understanding Peter, his vivid gesture could always be a great help.

③rhythm: 名词;节奏 韵律

Eg: Many people are in favor of his songs not really because he has a beautiful voice, instead, each of his songs carries a charming rhythm.

④unforgettable: 形容词; 令人难忘的

Eg:We all have some unforgettable experiences no matter they are good or bad, but we all wish that good ones could always stay in our mind while bad ones could vanish as soon as possible.

Part 3

How do you evaluate the overall service in your country?


Well, I personally think there is still much space for improvement in terms of the overall service in my country. What I mean is that the service might be pretty good when you go to a fancy restaurant, but it can be rather nasty when you eat at a small restaurant.


①in terms of: 介词短语;在某个方面

Eg:In terms of his academic performance, he is a great art student, despite the fact that he intentionally skipped many of his classes.

②nasty: 形容词;不好的 不愉快的

Eg:Peter is no longer the person he used to be after going through so many nasty experiences in life.

What would you do when you receive a bad service?


What I usually do is to leave the place as quickly as I could as I always believe we should all deserve the best service as long as we are at a place where we are supposed to be served. That is to say, we should definitely leave the place whenever we receive some bad service.


①deserve: 动词;应得 应受

Eg:After working for 5 years at his current company, he thinks he deserves a better pay. However, his request for pay rise has been officially rejected.

②be supposed to : 短语; 应该

Eg:I suggest you go to find him in his office tomorrow afternoon at about 15:30 as he is supposed to be working at that time.

Are you a person who tends to serve other people a lot?


Well, generally speaking, I think I am. I mean I kind of enjoy serving other people when I am in group. For instance, when I eat out with friends, I would normally take the menu and ask each of my friends to order the food they each like. And I might even add water for my friends while they are eating.


①kind of: 词组; 有点 稍许

Eg:He kind of likes the feeling when people call him Professor Lee as that title makes him feel respected and important.

②add : 动词; 添加

Eg:Peter has a sweet tooth, so he always adds lots of sugar to his coffee.

How do you serve your guests when they come over to your house?


Well, when they come over, I usually prepare some snacks and drinks for them to enjoy, and sometimes I would even cook yummy food for them if they have more time to stay.


①snacks: 名词;小吃 零食

Eg:Young ladies control themselves and try to eat fewer snacks in order to lose weight.

②yummy: 形容词; 美味的 好吃的

Eg:Some primary school students seem to enjoy the food at that Brazilian restaurant as they all claim that the Brazilian food they serve there is pretty yummy.

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

The diagram below shows the changes of an unknown village between 1900 and 2000.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Write at least 150 words.


本篇为典型的历史变迁地图题。不同于静态地图,此类动态变迁图需要考生筛选出两个年份同一地点的新增的、消失的、变化的内容,从而进行对比描述。另外,考生也需要注意是过去年份过去时态的应用。类似的变化地图题还有剑9中Test1 中的island变化图,以及剑12中Test6 的town centre变化图,建议大家自行练习,也可以对比学习剑雅真题后面的7分范文。


The two maps illustrate the changes that took place in an unknown village from 1900 to 2000. Overall, this small village changes from an isolated mountain village into a modern town with well-facilitated urban infrastructure. As can be seen, a river halves the pictures, and over it a bridge extends as a road through the village.

The year 1900 saw nothing but an area of woodland and a castle on the northern side. 100 years later, however, a new road was opened up along the northern side of the river. At the original location of the castle, a school was built, behind which a railway line was constructed. Besides, a residential area with a shopping centre appeared on the place where previously woodland and mountain were.

On the southern side of the river, there used to be a manor and vast wetland separated by the road. Yet in 2000, the manor was transformed into a park, while the original wetland into a lake in the centre with a line of trees to the southern village border. Across from that, another residential area towered with a small path, connecting the main road to it.

题目:With the increasing demand for energy sources of oil and gas, people should look for sources of oil and gas in remote and untouched places. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of damaging such areas?





As is known to all, energy resources such as oil and gas are closely connected with economic growth and technology development. Unfortunately, a large part of the resources we rely on are not renewable. Facing the problem of energy scarcity, many people shift their focus to the remote and unexploited areas for oil and gas. But I insist that in the long run, the downsides of the act prevail over the advantages it might bring.

Admittedly, exploring the energy resources in untouched areas can ease the pressure on energy shortage--provided that the chosen place does contain abundant oil or gas. Besides, the mining projects there will produce positive effects on other aspects such as transportation, infrastructure and job opportunity, all of which can surely improve the living standard of the local people.

However, it should be noted that with this method, the energy crisis could only be mitigated for a while, but never eradicated, since resources as such will eventually be used up some day. Then the locals will experience job losses again. Worse still, the exploitation poses a huge threat to our environment and ecologic system. Without strict laws and regulations, these money-oriented operations are very likely to disrupt the rare animal species, cut down the migratory pathways and even cause a lasting damage to the environment. Obviously, the consequences are too costly to afford as it is our future habitats and civilisation that are under attack. Rather than merely focusing on conventional energies, people need to broaden their horizons to other renewable forms such as solar power and wind energy.

All considerations discussed above, we can easily reach the conclusion that although tapping oil and gas can bring instant benefits in a small range, the aftereffect may be devastating and irreversible. Therefore it is more reasonable to leave the unexploited land for some more sustainable development.


①renewable: adj. 可再生的

②energy scarcity: 能源短缺

③prevail over: 超过

④it should be noted that: 需要注意的是

⑤eradicated: v. 彻底根除

⑥a lasting damage: 持久性损害

⑦aftereffect: n. 后续影响
