  熟习雅思口语话题的烤鸭们都晓得,每次的媒体类话题都是那么单调,基本上一个故事就搞定了好几道标题,这个故事既能够是书上读到的,也能够是电影里演的,还能够是电视剧的内容,随随意便的还能够改编成广告的素材!所以准备这种标题,千万压力别太大,挑一个适合的故事,剩下的就瓜熟蒂落了。

  下面以书为例,看看怎么改编成TV series:

  This topic reminds me of the time I read a book called Two Heroes, which is about a policeman fighting against gangsters.

  It’s such a page-turner, I mean, after I read the first chapter, it’s just impossible to put it down. I finished reading it in one sitting. It’s fair to say, it turned hours into seconds.

  It basically tells a story between a psychologist Kris and a policeman Tony. The criminal forced the psychologist to steal a diamond for him, ‘cause his wife was taken hostage. The policeman found out the truth, and he offered to help the psychologist, you know, to save his wife. During the whole process, they encountered countless difficulties and dangerous situations.

  The description in the book is so vivid that I could actually picture the fight scene in my head. And I have to say, the author of the book is really brilliant, he left lots of suspense that constantly keeps readers excited and want to read more about what would happen next. / The plots are full of twists and turns, and it’s like every 10 pages, something unexpected would happen, and you see, that's what makes this book so exciting.

  Well, just like all the other books about justice versus evil, the policeman and the psychologist killed the boss of those criminals, and successfully rescued Tony’s wife. However, Tony died in the fight with the villain, which is kind of sad.

  So, you see, the whole book is really thrilling.

  语言点解析:

  gangster = a member of a group of violent criminals 例如:

  Chicago gangsters

  page-turner = a book that is very exciting

  sitting = a period of time that a person spends sitting and doing an activity 例如:

  I read the book in one sitting.

  hostage = a person who is captured and held prisoner by a person or group, and who may be injured or killed if people do not do what the person or group is asking 例如:

  Three children were taken hostage during the bank robbery.

  He was held hostage for almost a year.

  The government is negotiating the release of the hostages.

  The hijackers kept the pilot as a hostage on board the plane.

  suspense = a feeling of worry or excitement that you have when you feel that something is going to happen, somebody is going to tell you some news, etc. 例如:

  Don't keep us in suspense. Tell us what happened!

  I couldn't bear the suspense a moment longer.

  villain = the main bad character in a story, play, etc. 例如:

  He often plays the part of the villain.

  twist = an unexpected change or development in a story or situation 例如:

  the twists and turns of his political career

  The story has taken another twist.

  The disappearance of a vital witness added a new twist to the case.

  By a curious twist of fate we met again only a week or so later.

  假如是TV series,唯一不同的就是“描写”能够变成“特效”哇:

  The special effects of the fight scenes are so real. I would say the TV show is well produced. I heard they just shoot most of the scenes in front of a green screen, but what we see on TV, like the forest, the skyscrapers, the mountains that are covered with ice and snow are just so real.

  Plus, the plots are full of twists and turns, and it’s like every 10 minutes, something unexpected would happen. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I mean, I just wanted to see what would happen next.

  special effects = SFX = unusual or exciting pieces of action in films / movies or television programs, that are created by computers or clever photography to show things that do not normally exist or happen
