  篮球赛、足球赛是孩子们最常想到的体育竞赛项目,也是我们在学校最经常见到的活动。但是很多同学不敢聊这个雅思口语话题的原因是,很多竞赛的名词专业术语,用英文讲起来就一窍不通了。比如常见的加时赛(extra time),扣篮(slam dunk),或者各个球员的位置,例如中锋(center)控球后卫(point guard),再比如描写专业的动作,例如抢篮板(rebound)等等。但是我们大能够躲过这些描写的。别忘了,Part 2一定要会啥说啥,要巧妙的把内容在不跑题的前提下引到我们熟习的语料范围:

  I’d like to talk about the basketball match I watched in our school basketball court.

  It was a memorable experience ‘cause I saw my childhood idol, XXX, who’s a famed and accomplished basketball player.

  I’ve been a big fan since I was a little boy, and I’d always wanted to watch his game on the court and see for myself how awesome he is, but I’d never got the chance, for one thing, the tickets are super expensive, for another thing, it’s hard to get one even if you don’t think the price is a problem, ‘cause they would be sold out immediately.

  However, fortunately, a couple of weeks ago, he had a friendly match with our local team and they happened to have the match in our school and anyone is welcome to the game, what a coincidence huh? Actually it’s not that surprising, ‘cause our gym is quite popular, and it also serves as the training place for our local team.

  Anyway, I was so thrilled about the news, and I was super elated to meet my idol in person. He’s incredibly tall, even taller than I saw on TV, but he’s so skillful and agile, I mean, it’s quite amazing ‘cause if I were that tall, I would be pretty clumsy.

  After the match, we had the chance to take pictures with him and get his autograph. It was really a childhood dream come true for me.
