雅思口語part2話題卡：Describe an old person who is interesting/an interesting old person you met有趣的老人
這道題是曾經季度考題的變形金剛版本，之前考到的是Describe an interesting person you would like to meet；兩個基本上只差在年齡的限制上。既然該考題要求了年齡一定是老年人范圍，那么烤鴨們一定不能去說哥哥姐姐之類的，一定是爺爺奶奶輩兒的。當然還可以說說曾經教過自己的老教授、與自己一起共事的老同事還有福利院的老人等等。小編記得這是一道早在14年就曾經考過的雅思口語話題卡，如今又出現了。本題難度適中，核心要點就是需要找到那個讓你覺得很有意思的人。老年人中其實不乏很多做了很多不平凡的事情，比如老年科學家諾貝爾獎獲得者楊振寧或者在公園里見著的退休的老年人，可以在腦海中多多思考一下你見著的特別的人、特別的事情。
Describe an old person who is interesting
You should say:
Who this person was;
How you met this person;
What you did or talked about;
And explain why you think this person was interesting.
An interesting old person I met is an Italian cruise ship pianist named Will, who was probably in his 50s.
It was about a year and a half ago, my friends and I were on the National Day Holiday, and we took an Italian cruise ship to Kagoshima in Japan. That’s was the first time in my life to travel by sea, and it was indeed a totally different experience.
I met this pianist at a corner of a café lounge on this cruise ship. His music was so soothing to us when we were relaxing on the couch enjoying the endless blue sea outside the window. He came at 2 pm every day on shift, and I had become his loyal listener since the first day on board. He sometimes also sang and played some Chinese classic songs from singers like Zhou Huajian, who was my parents’ age, but is still very popular nowadays in China.
He was so nice to his listeners and I even had some chitchat with him after his performance. What made me so interesting about him was that he sang perfectly in Chinese, which was amazing. This article is from laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. At least most of the Chinese senior singers I met at his age wouldn’t be able to sing in English well. You know, he told me he was quite into Chinese culture and had been there for many times.
Well, I think the craziest and coolest thing he did I think was that he chose to live his life on this cruise, and it’s been almost 3 years! That reminds me of a movie called The Legend of 1900, in which there’s a pianist who also had his piano career on the sea. I think Will is one of a few who I’ve met that have lived life in the most interesting way.

Do old people share the same interest with young people?
