雅思口语Part 2话题卡：Describe a time that you were late 迟到的经历
我们每个人应该都曾经迟到过，或者最起码从新闻或者朋友那里听过其他人迟到的经历。我们可能上课迟到，上班迟到，面试迟到，约会迟到，考试迟到，甚至有可能高考迟到无法入场。这些事情中，有的严重到会让人悔恨终生，有的可能只是生活中的小插曲，烦恼一会儿之后也就随风而去了。但无论他们重要程度如何，都可以做为这个题目的答案。如果各位考生实在没有思路，甚至可以参考下剑桥雅思4 test 2 section 1。那篇文章就讲了一名男子因为银行汇率系统的问题而迟到了半个小时。
Describe a time that your were late
You should say:
When it was
What time you arrived
Why you were late
How you felt
The experience I am going to talk about is that I was late for the final exam of mathematics, an important course in my senior year, whose result would decide whether I got the scholarship. The exam began at 8.30 in the morning and would last for 2 hours. But when I opened my eyes in the bed, it was already 9 o’clock. With no time to wash my face and brush my teeth, I put on my clothes, rushed to the examination room and arrived at a quarter past nine.
So I only got 75 minutes left to finish the test, which was almost an impossible task. I could see the scholarship had walked away. During the test, I could not stop blaming myself. Why did I stay up so late the night before and why did not I set several alarms in case I missed one? I almost cried out.
Fortunately, my teacher sympathized with my feelings and gave me another half an hour to complete the test. I was so grateful to him and promised I would never make a mistake like this again.
