2012年未来几个月的口语几乎不会有比较明显的变化,98%-100%为旧题目,大家按照我下面这些题目准备就99-100%能覆盖中。事实上,雅思口语考试每次绝大部分都是旧题目,都覆盖于叶毅斌预测里面。雅思口语考试新题目是很少的---一次最多5%,具体落实到各考考区点就更少了。2011年-2012年国内外出现的口语新题目和解析我YYB资料会一直汇总更新,大家应该把复习重点放在这些高频率的和近期热点和新话题上面。现将口语考试预测如下。(我的YYB会员资料有完整原创该预测Part 1-3全部地道答案解析,具体看叶毅斌新浪博客)
特别提醒:一直有烤鸭希望我把口语预测题目压缩到剩下10几个,这是极其危险的。事实证明,每场考试每个考点考室的口语话题加起来有30-40几个,如果迷信很少的几个话题预测,偷工减料,那后果不堪设想。最近一段时间以来 ,雅思口语题目和写作题目经常互相借用,拼凑组合,特别是新的写作题目经常取自于口语话题,这其实是好现象,说明我们的口语和写作是可以一起准备的,不要把他们孤立开来,我的YYB资料的口语和写作答案和范文是可以互相套用的.
口语预测话题按照重点先后顺序排列,可以根据自己的时间取舍,新调整和新增题目已标出(最重点)。时间少的同学准备最重点前面3次,5次, 或10次最新调整(新增)的就行,时间充裕的同学最重点往下多准备一些。

For there is no authority except from God and those which exist are established by God." When Madison and the other founding fathers were drafting the Constitution they continued Jefferson’s theme by posing solutions to the Facts Jefferson listed in the Declaration...
