What forms of transport do you usually use?
Actually I usually go to work by bus since taking the bus has so many benefits. The most obvious advantage of taking the bus is convenience. As you can see, there are lots of bus stations along the street so I can take the bus anywhere I want to. Besides, buses run much more frequently everyday thus I can catch a bus anytime. Another reason is that it saves a lot of time to take the bus during rush hours as there are many bus lanes in city. So I take the bus to school all the time.
2017年11月11日的这场加试考题延续了整个11月份前两场出现的新旧题，范围比较稳定，所以考生碰到如computer, boat, mirror 这样的“另类题目”时不要慌张，要跟自己平常的生活习惯联系起来，有条理的讲明白自己喜欢/不喜欢电脑，乘船/不乘船，或者为什么照镜子/不照镜子的原因就行。个别Part 1话题如：bus, high school, punctuality等也可以和transportation, school 等话题的论据相联系。遇到P2 题目时也要稳住心态，跟之前学过的题卡联想一下看看有没有类似的论据，如a car trip you have been to和a holiday you want to go on就完全可以是做同一件事（自驾游），考生只要阐述明白（喜欢这个活动的）原因就可以了。
