    这道题我上课其实说过,不过很多同学反映找不到素材~睡不着,帮大家整理个材料吧~~~唉~~~天生劳碌命~~~

    我说过,雅思口语话题,一题准备一个答案的是暴殄天物,两三题合并准备通用答案的才是聪明人,懂得统筹!

    童年故事中的人物形象这道题其实出得很偏,限定词多的题一般都不好做,但是,仔细回想一下,其实这道题和Describe an adventurous person有异曲同工之妙~然后,我上课再三告诫过大家,在词汇量限制表达的情况下,尽可能不要选择考官不熟悉的中国传统故事和人物作为素材,因为考虑到文化背景的极大差异,考官很容易失去耐性从而减少我们的陈述时间~

   

Describe a character in a childhood story(原创,转载请注明) - MonicaQ - Monica庆相宜的地盘!

      综上所述,这道题必须同时满足几个条件:童年故事中的人物+有冒险精神+老外熟悉~~~Bingo!!花木兰啊!!迪斯尼动画片的影响力不容小觑~迪斯尼花木兰的形象早已成为老外心中典型的中国美人的形象啦~

    然后大家要学会搜索信息啊~

    今天教大家信息查找的方法:

    第一步,万能的维基百科我来啦!!www.en.wikipedia.org 输入拼音Hua Mulan,参照下方信息,我们看到Life, History和Name三项,其中只有Life一项属于描述性段落,其他都是史实介绍,于口语考试无用,直接忽略不计~~Life这一段文字,目测一下,大约120左右,不够口语考试用,所以,我们需要额外信息补全~(维基百科的介绍在这里,自己去看 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hua_Mulan

    第二步,结合个人经历!!我们以前接触花木兰的故事是因为中学课本学习的《木兰辞》,维基百科上译作Ballad of Mulan,复制这个词条,使用百度搜索,重点关注“英文版”、“英文简介”这样的字眼,很容易就找到我们要的信息~权衡一下发现,度娘提供的英文简介语言更平实,更适合口语考试用,于是维基百科的Life一项完全可以弃之不用,不要觉得可惜~(度娘的简介在此http://zhidao.baidu.com/question/98817679.html

    第三部,整合整合!!!记忆记忆!!!

    收工~~

 

    度娘上的文本在此:

    Hua Mulan is a heroine who took the place of her father and joined the army, described in a famous Chinese poem known as the Ballad of Mulan. It is unknown whether the story has any factual basis. The poem was written during the Northern Wei dynasty,and first recorded in the Musical Records of Old and New from Southern and Northern Dynasties.
    According the description of the Ballad of Mulan, the khan of Northern dynasty ordered to recruit for the army to ward off incursions by the Rouran nomads. Her father need to perform obligation.   Howere,her father is so old that he could not bear suffering from the bitterness, and she hasn’t an elder brother to go and fight. So Mulan decided to disguised herself into a man to join the army instead of her father.
    Many years later, the battle was over. In view of her military exploit , the Khan of Northern dynasty offered Mulan a high official position, but she turned down the position to return to her family. She made up herself after coming back home. When her former comrades visited her at home, they were shocked to see her dressed as a woman.         
    Hua Mulan has been highly respected as a filial daughter by the Chinese people for hundreds of years, even though her story might be no more than a legend. In 1998, her story was adapted for an animated cartoon in a Disney amusement center in the United States, to the acclaim of all over the world.         
    花木兰是中国著名古诗《木兰辞》中描绘的一位代父从军的巾帼英雄,其真实性不详。该诗约作于北魏,最初录于南朝陈的《古今乐录》。         
    根据《木兰辞》的描述,北朝可汗征兵抵御柔然民族的入侵,女子花木兰之父亦在受召之列;木兰不忍见其年迈的父亲从军受苦,又没有年长的兄弟可以代替老父,她于是自己乔装成男子代父从军。         
    多年后战事结束,木兰因军功彪炳得到可汗召见;可汗虽授以高官厚禄,木兰却只请准予解甲返乡。木兰返乡后,回复女性装扮,昔日同袍才惊觉原来木兰实为女子。         
    千百年来,花木兰被作为一个孝顺的女儿受中国人的尊敬,尽管可能这只是一个传说。1998年,美国迪士尼公司将花木兰的故事改编成了动画片,受到了全世界的欢迎。
