雅思口语话题题库外国人原创范文1：异国食物(Describe a foreign food you ate)
I would like to try the Salmon fish with onion and olive oil which is a foreign menu for the people of our country. In our country we do not have the Salmon fish and the finest quality olive oil is imported from Italy. The exotic menu I have mentioned is available only in a five-star hotel in our country. If I get the opportunity someday, I will try this food item.
I learned about this item from a lifestyle & travel related TV channel a few years ago. I was randomly checking the programs of different channels and I noticed this TV channel. The cook described in details how to prepare this food item, what ingredients would be required, how to make it tastier and I watched it all with utmost interest and attention. A few years later I found this menu in a billboard beside a big hotel in our city and at that time I planned to have it. Since it is a foreign food item and available only in this luxurious and expensive hotel, it would be quite expensive for me.
After watching the TV program on cooking, I got interested in this food. Apart from that, I heard that Salmon fish is a very tasty food. The way the TV program presented it was very impressive and extraordinary. This program and their way of cooking grabbed my interest and attention. I would like to taste it mostly because I watched it in a TV program and heard that this is a menu worth trying.
Apart from that

There is a foreign food that I would really like to try, but I wonder if my choice will surprise you? I will tell you what it is, how I learned about it, where it is mostly eaten and explain why I want to taste it so badly.
The food is…. Pizza! Now, of course, this is a food that you can buy all over the world, and I really enjoy the pizza that I can buy in my home country which is England in the UK. However, I recently learned from a friend that the style of pizza available here is nothing like the authentic Italian pizza you can get if you visit its country of origin, and since then, it’s one of the things on my bucket list. That is, something I’d like to do before I die is to travel to Italy, find a local pizzeria and get a really authentic pizza.
So how did I learn what I’ve been missing? I shop regularly at a local family owned delicatessen. The proprietor is Italian, and he is a great foody – that is he takes food very seriously, sourcing only the best ingredients. He and his wife are both vegetarian like me, so they often suggest food or recipes. The other day we were talking and he was bemoaning the lack of ‘proper’ pizzas in this country. He told me that whilst of course, Italian food is very regional including its pizzas, they are nevertheless distinctive. All pizzas MUST be cooked in a wood-fired oven for a start, the dough should be tossed by hand. The pizza should only be made with the very freshest and finest ingredients, and is best eaten outdoors too, of course, against the backdrop of the Italian countryside!
Pizza is eaten everywhere in Italy, though of course approximations of pizza can be bought the world over. Even so, my deli friend has persuaded me I’ve been missing out, and I’d like to find out for myself how different it might taste if I go for an authentic recipe, venue and location. I’ve never had a real pizza, and I’ve never been to Italy either, I think it would be a winning combination – not to mention that it would also be a great excuse to go to a beautiful country that I have yet to visit. What do you think, would you like to come too?

在第一和第三部分中，关于work and career方面曾经考过的几道真题有，如：
Do you think salary is only thing that counts in a job?
What do you think of leaflets?
How can we increase the sales profits of a company?
Could you tell me the difference between big and small shops in their service?
How to provide a good service?
Is it important for a shopping center to have good service?
Describe a company that your relative or friend owns.
Describe how to run a business (You should say what you must do and where you run the business)
这道极为日常化的题是这样的：Could you name some famous flowers in China? 在考生自我介绍之后，随之而出的这道题使很多考生考雅思高分的梦想瞬间破灭。
Please tell me some famous birds in your country.
Please tell me some meanings of ships in your country.
第二部分中有：Describe a furniture
因为在上海电视台“舞林大会”节目播出后，口试中随即出现了Please name some kinds of famous dances in China.这样的题目，很多考生都不明所以。
中国文化源远流长，这一内容在历年一直是雅思口试关注的热点，2009年也不例外。近年出现的part 2题：Describe an interesting culture，一直以来就是考生头痛的问题。
在中国文化的运用方面，雅思的经典topic始终有四块，一个是Talk about favorite clothing， 一般建议考生谈谈traditional Chinese clothing，谈中国唐装是个很好的机会，可以让考官了解中国的文化，并对考生产生很好的印象。
另一个是Talk about a kind of traditional building in your country，或者是Describe the emblematic building in your town，这两道题的高分几率一向较低，主要是考生真正能描述成功一个独立中国式建筑的非常少，而描述中国特色的建筑往往是很可能得高分的答题思路。
第三块是关于reading的。很多学生在讲述Describe your favorite book的时候，他们都倾向于描述西方的名著，但是，如果能够换个角度考虑到考官作为外国人对中国文化的兴趣，就能够在内容上出奇制胜，比如可以谈谈中国古典四大名著the four traditional Chinese classical novels。
第四块是中国本土食品，如Describe your favorite kind of dish等，这类题目可以描述中国名菜，考官会非常想去尝试，一旦在描述是能够让考官体会到这种菜肴的特色，调动其感官，使人体会到色、香、味的中国菜烹饪方式，那么这类题目的得分就会一路上扬了。
