雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe a company where you live that employs a lot of people 雇佣很多员工的公司
这道题目中where you live的限定很容易让人纠结，毕竟不是每个同学都会关注自己居住城市的公司状况，也完全不清楚哪家公司的员工比较多。这种情况下，我们可以借用一些大型公司的情况，给它换个名字和地点进行扩展。比如我们可以以阿里巴巴为蓝本，编造一个自己家乡名为“四十大盗”的公司。有了实例之后说起来就会轻松很多。
Describe a company where you live that employs a lot of people
You should say
What it does
How many people it employs
What kind of people work there
How you feel about it
The company I am going to tell you is an institution called “you can” that focuses on providing after-school crammers to high school students. You know, due to the fierce competition in the college entrance exam, attending such classes has become a norm. Parents and their children hope to seize every opportunity to gain an advantage over their rivals, which breeds a huge market.
The company has its branches all over the country, employs hundreds of people and has set up complementary departments to conduct business. There are the salesmen who do everything they could to persuade the parents to buy courses this company offers. Once they sign the contract, this article is from laokaoya website, their children will be transferred to the experienced teachers who would tutor their homework. There are also some supervisors, responsible for communicating with the parents to make sure they are satisfied with the service.
I knew this company because of my grandpa. He is a patient, amiable person, who used to work in the public school as a Chinese teacher. After retirement, he found himself unable to put up with the state of doing nothing and sitting around. So he joined this company as a teacher to exploit his speciality and make some money.
My feeling towards this company is quite complex. On the one hand, I wish it could thrive and keep expanding its market share. After all my grandpa is there. On the other hand, I think it further exploits the already little spare time of high school students, turning them into study machines. From this perspective, I hope it will wither and disappear in the near future.
