雅思口语当季话题卡：Describe an experience that you taught a friend or a relative 描述教授朋友或亲戚的经历
该题目有两个信息点：taught和friend or relative。Taught：对大多数考生而言，教育往往第一反应就是教授知识，或者讲解作业一类的事情。其实我们的思路完全可以再开阔一些，教修电脑也算教育，教说话也算教育，教如何使用手机也算教育，甚至教怎么游戏通关也可以算。这样我们就可以最大程度的避免跟其他人答案雷同，让考官感兴趣。第二个信息点friend or relative说明自己的专业并不是教育或者专职老师，只是客串一下。而且这两者的身份也决定这件事不太可能发生在课堂上，有事先的准备等。
You should say:
Who you taught 教的谁
When you taught 什么时候教的
What you taught 教的什么
And explain how you felt about the teaching 这件事有什么感受
The experience I am going to tell you is that I taught my mother how to use Wechat to send audio messages. My mother is an old lady marching towards her 60s. She did not attend college but went to work directly after high school, which was quite common in her era. Ever since marriage, her life center has been put at the family and she made sure my father and I eat well and dress well, and we have a nice clean house. Thus she did not have much time to pay attention to the development of technology and often felt puzzled facing all those high-tech devices like smart-phones, laptops and smart televisions.
Last spring festival, my mother asked me whether I knew how to send audio messages through Wechat. Since she was getting older and developing presbyopia, texting became pretty challenging. She figured she might use audio messages instead, but did not know how. I said of course and patiently showed her how to open the app, how to switch between text and audio, how to record, where she should speak to, and how to send. She was so careful that she even wrote down all these procedures. After several practice, she could do this by herself. I saw a big smile appear on her face.
I was happy too. My mother has been tending me for all her life. Now it is my turn to take care of her.
