雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe someone who is older than you that you admire 尊敬的老人/尊敬的比你大的人/敬佩的老人
这道题的汉语翻译可能会稍微存在一些误导。older than you的限定意味着我们不仅可以说老人，只要是比我们年纪大的人都符合题目要求。因此，除了在各行各业取得相应成就的、年龄较大的人员之外，我们也可以聊聊自己身边的哥哥姐姐，叔叔阿姨，只要说明自己尊敬他们的理由就好。
Describe someone who is older than you that you admire
You should say
Who this person is
How you knew this person
What kinds of things you like to do together
And explain how you feel about this person
The old person I am going to tell you is Wang, the president of the volunteer association in my city. He is a tall, slim man, around 50, always wearing a clean suit. Every time I see him, he is smiling, quite amiable, which perfectly fits his position and what he does.
I first met him at the interview. Since the Volunteer Association was one of the most well-known associations in my city, it had to screen off some of the applicants to avoid being too overstaffed. Then at the welcome party, I learnt that he was living in the same community as me and he even knew my father, which provided a natural reason for us to become familiar with each other.
Every week, he would organize three different volunteer activities, one to the school for deaf-mutes, playing games with the disabled adolescents to ease their feelings of being isolated from society; one to the nursing home, this article is from Laokaoya website, chatting with the senior citizens and cleaning rooms for them so that they know they are not forgotten, and the last one to the animal shelter to help the staff bath the puppies.
Although doing these kinds of activities is his job, he does them quite sincerely. Otherwise, he could lower the frequency or cut one of them off. It seems that he can derive a sense of satisfaction from alleviating others’ trouble and bringing happiness to them.
I respect him because of his selfless behaviour. If I reach his age, I may spend most of the time on entertainment rather than giving a hand to others, which highlights his greatness.
