这个雅思前考官的名字大家肯定不会陌生，嗯，simon，他的全名是Simon Corcoran，他的个人博客网址：ielts-simon.com，大约7年了，他几乎以每天一篇的频率坚持更新着。现在，为大家带逛一下这个must see的网站。
1.在Friday, September 18, 2015发布的《IELTS Speaking Part 2: describe a hobby》，这是一篇非常有价值的文章，之所以这样说，是因为这篇文章提供了一些通用的答题思路，而不是给了一道题目给大家练习，这类文章都值得大家多多研究——
Think about question words: What, when, where, why, who with:
What: One of my hobbies is photography.
When and where: I take photos on my phone almost every day, and I have a proper camera that I use on special occasions. If I see something interesting or I want to record a particular memory, I take photos wherever I am.
Why: I take photos so that I have a record of the things I’ve seen or done.
Who with: Most of my photos are of friends and family, but I also take pictures of interesting things that I see.
Simon给思路算是真的很良心的一种做法， 因为很多人在练习口语的时候往往就是不知道要讲什么，导致考官会提很多的问题，因为每次你的回答都只有一句话，这样就很干瘪。而按照Simon给的一些思路作答，稍加练习就能有一个比较完备的思路。本题的What, when, where, why, who with思路就可以拓展成一大段的文章。
大家可以用Simon博客的搜索功能，专门搜下speaking part 2的文章，70%都是以思路型引导为主的，把它们都抄在笔记本上，看个10来篇，多加理解也基本都搞定了思路了!剩下的就是不断的practice了!
口语比较差的同学，可以多利用搜索功能，着重看看speaking部分，例如Friday, September 11, 2015的这篇《IELTS Speaking Part 1: negative answers》就是一个很好的范例，我们第一部分的答题的思路、语气、用词的难易、句式的多变、长度都可以很轻易地被总结出来!
1) Do you like music?
No, I don't really like music, and I don't listen to it. It's not something that I've ever been interested in.
2) What kind of music did you listen to when you were young?
I can't remember listening to much music as a child either. I suppose I must have heard some traditional music at festivals or parties, but I didn't take much notice of it.
而Wednesday, September 16, 2015的《IELTS Writing Task 2: 'strong opinion' essay》则是直接给了一片完整的考官范文出来，题目是「Some people who have been in prison become good citizens later, and it is often argued that these are the best people to talk to teenagers about the dangers of committing a crime. To what extent do you agree or disagree?」，以下引用下考官写的文章，注意加粗和下划线的部分：
It is true that ex-prisoners can become normal, productive members of society. Icompletely agree with the idea that allowing such people to speak to teenagers about their experiences is the best way to discourage them from breaking the law【常见短语使用】.
In my opinion, teenagers are more likely to accept advice from someone who can speak from experience. Reformed offenders can tell young people about how they became involved in crime, the dangers of a criminal lifestyle, and what life in prison is really like. They can also dispel【一些短小精悍却很地道的词汇的运用，这部分可以参考慎小嶷的10天】 any ideas that teenagers may have about criminals leading glamorous【高级词汇的使用增色】lives. While adolescents are often indifferent to the guidance given by older people, I imagine that most of them would be extremely keen to hear the stories of an ex-offender. The vivid and perhaps shocking nature of these stories is likely to have a powerful impact.
The alternatives to using reformed criminals to educate teenagers about crime would be much less effective. One option would be for police officers to visit schools and talk to young people. This could be useful in terms of informing teens about what happens to lawbreakers when they are caught, but young people are often reluctant to【一些短语的替换表达很给文章增色，而且很地道】 take advice from figures of authority. A second optionwould be for school teachers to speak to their students about crime, but I doubt that students would see teachers as credible sources of information about this topic. Finally【注意结构】, educational films might be informative, but there would be no opportunity for young people to interact and ask questions.
In conclusion, I fully【一些副词的使用强调了自己的观点，画龙点睛，但是词并不难】 support the view that people who have turned their lives around after serving a prison sentence could help to deter teenagers from committing crimes.
