雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe a short trip you often take but do not like 不喜欢的短途旅行
这道题的限定条件有三个：short, often和do not like，给我们的回答增加了许多困难。对于已经工作的同学来说，上下班之旅完美符合这些条件。但还在学校的同学可能就得费点思量了。一方面我们可以模仿工作，讲讲自己实习上下班的过程；另一方面，我们也可以聊聊定期去超市购物，去探望某人，或者去辅导班。而不喜欢的原因则可以从以下两点入手：要么旅途艰辛，不太方便；要么到了之后要做的事情自己很抵触。
Describe a short trip you often take but do not like
You should say
Where you go
When you go there
Why you go there
And explain why you do not like the trip
I am going to tell you a trip that I undertook nearly every day in the last two months and will continue conducting in the next half year. It is a trip from my school to the company where I have an internship.
As a junior in the university, I have only one year left to complete my study and then I would enter the competitive labor market, trying my best to find a decent job. This article is from Laokaoya website. To polish my resume and gain some practical experience, I have got myself an intern position in Baidu, a tech-giant in China.
Although this opportunity was very precious and wining this position did earn me some admiration from my classmates, the working life is not pleasant at all. Since the company is not located in the same district as my school, I have to take nearly 40 minutes’ bus to commute to and from the workplace, which means I need to get up at 6.30 in the morning to avoid being late and would not return to my dormitory until 7 o’clock in the evening, really toilsome.
Another reason why I do not like the trip is the perpetual crowd in the bus. As you can see, my commuting time coincides with other employees in the city. Whenever I step into the bus, it is already pretty full. In fact, I have to shove through the crowd to find me a place to stand in the back and body contact with strangers is inevitable.
