Describe a famous person that you admire

The famous person I’d like to describe is Fu Mingxia. She was a gold medallist at Sydney Olympic games. In fact, she won four of them. She won them in the diving competition. She’s now a student at Tsinghua University. So she’s quite clever and she will graduate from a top university. She’s about 25 years old. I think she must be blessed by god to be able to dive so perfectly. After all, most divers have trained in diving schools that are very sophisticated, but her training was not so privileged. She just worked hard and had a very committed coach.

Ithink I admire her so much because I can imagine how nervous she felt having the whole world watching her and yet she controlled that nervousness masterfully to make a perfect dive. Well, its that ability to control yourself that I’d really love to learn. Also, her diving style was unique and very-brave, and because of her innovative style, she has brought pride to her country.

Ithink that people can learn that by being the best at something you are not only helping yourself

but the whole country, because high quality is what improves our lives. I think people can learn that nothing is impossible if we set our minds to being the best. We shouldn’t always think we can just do what we must to get by. Our goals should be much more ambitious. We should try to be the best because we can take pride from the value of hard work in everything we do.

I’m going to talk about my father because he has been a major influence in my life.

My father was always a good role model for me as I was growing up. He’s hard-working, patient and understanding; he has a good sense of humour and seems to get on well with everybody. Hopefully I’ve inherited some of these traits.

Iadmire my father because I think he brought me and my brothers and sisters up well; he was quite strict but always fair, and he has always been someone I can turn to for advice. I think my father has set a good example by working hard and he has a positive outlook on life. I remember that he used to leave for work early and come home quite late, but he always made time for me and my brothers and sisters.

下面的a celebrity you admire,还是比较典型的一个话题。

Example by Edward:

Describe a celebrity you admire.

Explain: who is this celebrity? What has he/she done to become popular? Why do you like him/her?

When this topic is regarded/As the topic is mentioned (一般我都会用这两句开头,当然你也可以自己想一个开头方式), I would say a celebrity whom I admire most is the former Chinese gymnast who is named Li Ning (有时候最好的回答方式就是重复对方的问题) . Before I start, I do want to remind you that he is the man who lighted up the primary torch in Beijing Olympic Game 2008.

Li Ning is no doubt one of the greatest athletes in China owing to his great contribution to gymnastics. As a gymnast, Li Ning demonstrated exceptional talents and perseverance/fortitude (天赋与坚毅品质)that his contemporaries didn’t possess(替换have可以展现你的词汇量). In Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games, he won 4 gold medals, which was the best performance in that game. The next year, he won another two in World Gymnastic games. Prior to Beijing Olympics, he still held a record of 14 champion titles in gymnastics. In his days, he barely can find a competitor. So this good-looking young man has often been called the prince of gymnastics.

Having retired from his beloved game (这句话完全等于after he retired from his beloved game), Li Ning still continued his passion in the field of sports by establishing a sport wear company which was named after him. The company soon became an unprecedented success. Presently, the brand Li Ning has become a main competitor that Nike and Addidas can not ignore in the global market.

Another reason I admire him is that Li Ning is not just a normal businessman who only cares about money, but also a man responsible for the future of the whole nation (我常用这句话来形容商人-温总理说:企业家身上应当流着道德的血液。). He often donates money to communities and the national educational program called hope plan. So everything he does can be used as positive demonstration for the youth.


这个topic要说完可能需要3分钟,所以在考场上必然会被考官打断-因为这部分给定时间在1-2分钟。但是并不用担心,因为考官会告诉你:don’t worry if I stop you.


试想,当你说一个物品,比如gift, 或者一次经历,比如travelling的时候,把它和你的好朋友或者是家人联系起来。准备就变得很有效率,回答时也可以避免没话说的灾难发生。


Afriend: a happy person, one you want to travel/study/work with, one you admire……

Acelebrity: sport/movie/music star, a famous person you admire, a successful person, a character from a TV program or a movie.

Afamily member: one who influenced you most, one you like best, a happy person, an old person.

Else: child, teacher, neighbor

In China ,the most significant Agriculture outcome in recent decades was hybrid rice , which was developed by a group of scientists whom led by Yuan longping in central China’s Hunan province.This outstanding contribution already has been written in the textbooks of my generation.

During the year 1959 to 1961,the most mainland Chinese suffered for a nationwide drought along with serious food shortage and famine. Yuan longping found a special kind of natural hybrid rice, which

brought him the idea of cultivating a bran-new super hybrid rice for the entire country. With 40 years studies ,his creative team finally developed the super hybrid rice ,which was especially suitable for inland regions.

Surprisingly he still continues his research even nowadays.His creativity and continuity deeply remind me that to be constantly reflect on some little things, do not quit easily for everything ,catch every tiny sparks in my mind ,and always try to find out other methods to solve a problem. The influence makes me become much positive when difficulties came ,and reminds me that be patient all the time on what I am doing. In order to giving the best outcome ,I also review the work I did several times and ask others for opinions before I turned in.
