雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe a person who encouraged and helped you to achieve a goal 描述一个助你实现目标的人/鼓励你的人
这道题目很有意思的地方在于你需要想到一个实际可行的目标并且完成了这个目标。因此，考生们在思考此题的时候，可以在脑海中自动过滤掉那些漫无边际以及还未完成的‘远大理想’等等。那么哪些目标可以说一说呢？可以是short-term goal(短期目标)也可以是一个long-term goal（长远目标）。比如，完成本学期的功课，争取考到班上前3名。也可以是生活中的，比如一个月内减肥15斤；通过交通考试，拿到驾照；还比如，攒好钱去一次理想的长途旅行等等。这些目标都可以有机会得到身边朋友或者老师的帮助，也不是mission impossible的事情。最后，老烤鸭小编要提醒大家的是，不管想说哪种事情，请一定在语言上多花些功夫，尽量表述无误。
Describe a person who encouraged and helped you to achieve a goal
You should say:
who this person is
what this person encouraged you to do
how this person helped you
And explain why this encouragement helped you to achieve your goal
A person who encouraged and helped me to reach a goal is Xiao Xiao, who is my older sister in my family.
一位帮助我实现目标的人是Xiao Xiao, 她是我家里的姐姐。
Xiao is eight years older than me. She is now working in the PricewaterhouseCoopers, which is one of the biggest corporations from the United Kingdom. She is hardworking and always makes people feel that she is energetic every day even though there’s much workload for her.
My sister has always been my first mentor in my life since the first day I got into elementary school. As she is eight years older than me, she could give me a myriad of tips and detailed guidance on schooling and life perspectives, which I feel grateful.
I remember there was a time when I was preparing for the Gaokao, which is the college entrance examination in China, Xiao was the person I could fall back on. My goal was to nail it so that I could get into an ideal college. This article is from Laokaoya website. You know, math was a horrible subject that tormented me the most. I just somehow couldn’t figure out the questions. Since she has been through this, she constantly consoled me and gave me instruction as much as she could. She kept telling me that ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’. You know what, that sentence made me feel pumped as I was surely aware that my sister managed to strive to be a straight-A student from scratch. With this belief, I eventually got good scores in that crucial exam during my life and was matriculated to my ideal college.
The reason why I felt her encouragement worked was that my sister was a role model for me. You know, although she was not in the same situation, the same core essence of not giving up enabled me to carry on.
