雅思口语当季话题卡：Describe a tall building in your city/hometown you like or dislike 描述一个你喜欢或者不喜欢的家乡（城市）的高楼大厦
这个题目让我想到了曾经15年出过的一个题目，叫做Unusual Building，都是在谈建筑物，而且都有一个修饰建筑的形容词。所以很多烤鸭就是犯难，觉得什么样子的建筑物算是高楼呢？难道是东方明珠，还是南半球第一高塔Skytower? 其实，所有你觉得很高的建筑物都可以描述。另外一个难点在于来自自己的家乡，有烤鸭就会问，如果自己是出生在穷乡僻壤，并没有什么高楼怎么办？这个也不必担心，考官并不会说，来来把你的户口拿出来我看看。 所以，在内容到位的情况下，就是看大家的表现水平了。这需要平时多花功夫练习。老烤鸭建议同学们看到下面的题目后，先认真思考，然后口头练习，最后参考老烤鸭给出的原创答案进行学习。
Describe a tall building in your city you like or dislike
You should say:
Where it is
What it is used for
What it looks like
And explain why you like or dislike it
A tall building I’d like to describe is Huang He Lou, which can be literally translated as the Yellow Crane Tower. It is located in my hometown Wuhan, which is the capital city of Hubei Province.
Well, as the fairy tale goes, the tower originally served as a restaurant which was built by a local businessman who was quite poor at the time. It was a quite ordinary building until an immortal named Wang Zi’an came here and drew a Yellow Crane on the wall which became alive. This article is from Laokaoya website. This astonishingly surreal story had attracted lots of guests and thus pulled the man through. However, the immortal eventually rode away from there on this crane. So, basically, the building was named after the amazing flying creature.
The building is a classic tower-like building but looks very new. I guess it’s probably because the Wuhan Government moved the entire building to another site to prevent it from being flooded by the Yangtse river. It is about 170 feet high which is one of the tallest historic buildings in the city.
I feel that the main reason why I am quite into this building is that I love the beautiful legend associated with the building. You know, it was the most intriguing local tale I’ve heard since I was a kid. You know, being able to touch the wall just can literally take me back to the magical old time.
