Part 1 虽说总体来讲会基本保留常考的话题，例如姓名，家乡，兴趣爱好等，但是也会有一些抽象话题的出现。而这些抽象话题有的时候考生很难在考场中立即反应过来并且流利作答，例如happiness就是比较典型的一类。所以，现在第一部分的话题也是在渐渐呈现一个变难的趋势。
Part 2 很多考生现在基本都可以通过网上的一些机经和预测，提前准备话题。要是在事先有所准备，即使在考试时遇到较为有难度的话题，相对来讲也可以比较轻松的去面对。这个部分总体来讲还是旧酒装新瓶，换汤不换药的一些话题，只不过在出题方式和形式上会有所不同，但是话题内容万变不离其宗。所以考生只要基本有一些素材的积累，在考试中做到话题素材的共用，其实难度也不会太大。
Part 3 这个部分难度系数会比之前两个部分要大，很多问题相对来说都会比较抽象。考生无法用简单的几句话讲话题描述清楚，这次考试还是一贯以往的套路和难度，在第三部分的考题上让很多考生觉得束手无策。但是无论考试难度如何变化，只要考生平常多加练习，加大思路和词汇方面的扩充，这个部分其实也没有大家想的那么难以应对。
最后，送大家一句老话，“Practice makes perfect.”虽然大家都懂这个道理，但是觉得部分考生还是很难做到。希望大家可以一直贯彻始终，坚持如初，早日和雅思分手。
