雅思口语考试Part3口语范文大全,题型是有关a famous person。
1.What makes people famous?
Uhm, Talent is definitely the key point to make someone popular. I mean those who have any gifts in something especially when they are outstandingly different from others could become famous. They can be singers, musicians, actors, athletes, politicians or even photographers. Besides, in today’s scenery, it can be seen that some people can make themselves being known by their looks, you know, hot girls, hot boys who can easily attracts others by their appearance or sometime with little bit of scandals as well. However, this cannot last without a real talent and knowledge. So all in all, if I can put in orders these factors that make people famous, I would go for outstanding talent and then appearance with some specific gifts or deep knowledge.
2.What are the differences between a famous person and an ordinary person?
There is of course a huge difference between a celebrity and a normal person. Firstly, famous people are recognized everywhere and get special treatment wherever they go. For instance, I assume that someone like Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber will get preferential treatment over other customers at a restaurant, don’t you think? Besides, famous people have fans who have celebrity crushes or even real life admiration for them. After all, who wouldn’t like to have their own fans, followers, and worshipers?
3.What are the advantages and disadvantages of being famous?
Being famous can be beneficial, I mean, apart from the fact that you are recognized and get special treatment as I mentioned above, it also generally means being richer with many dream opportunities arise but I think the disadvantage will outweigh the advantage. Well, first to realize is they have no privacy, you can never go anywhere in public without having crowds of people follow you, having camera in your face. You are always stalked and judged about every single personal matter of your life. Whatever personal things happen to you will often become common knowledge for everyone. Being famous can also stop celebrities from indulging in the little pleasures of life, which can be very frustrating indeed.
4.Why do you think ordinary people are interested in the lives of celebrities?
It depends on the person. Some people are inspired and motivated by their idols and they naturally would want to know more about the people who have such an outstanding talent. But for most, they are just living vicariously through the lives of others. I mean they’re not actually interested in celebrities – they’re interested in themselves as reflected in celebrities. Millions of tween and teen girls fall helplessly in-crush with pop stars and feel extremely connected to them… and they wouldn’t dream of going out with a ‘real-life’ guy at school anymore. But I’m sure it’s just because they have too much time to waste you know, youngsters. When they get older, those concerns will automatically go away, that’s for sure
5. What do you think of the privacy of a well-known person?
I believe celebrities deserve privacy, but they can't expect the same level as a privacy as a 'normal' person.
I do think that famous people are entitled to a degree of privacy; ie it's wrong for the paparazzi/public to camp outside their homes, wait outside their children's schools, phone hacking, attempting to infiltrate private events such as weddings, stalking their EVERY move and so on; harassment basically. Those types of examples where people try and gain access to inherently private areas of their lives are completely unacceptable. Having said that, they cannot expect to have complete and utter privacy; for example, people will know about relationship/marriage breakdowns, they'll get their pictures taken on the street etc...That kind of behavior is something that they'll have to expect and put up with; it's all part of being famous. I really dislike the idea of people thinking that they somehow 'own' famous people too; as mentioned in some of the other comments, they're human beings like us too.
6. What kinds of people were famous in your grandparent’s time?
In my home country we had different, mainly two political parties and the heads of those political parties were very famous. Especially one guy called [inaudible] and he made a lot of changes in Ecuador during my grandparent’s time because he gave the vote to women and he also made it compulsory, the vote for all the citizens in my home country. And he worked for the
Liberal education, not ties with the religious or anything like that but very open to everyone.
7. What responsibility to society do famous people have?
They have a huge responsibility because people really look up on them. You know they look upon and they want to copy models. I think we are a very sensitive society and we would like just to copy. And if someone is famous they should have- they should use this power to give things back to the community. Like you know, like for example, the Tsunami Disaster or things like that… you to use this power to call for people to stop children detention, things like that you know, they should use that in order to make people aware of what’s going on. Not just to be part of entertainment, but I think they should have a political voice in the community.
8.Do you think that the children of famous people have an easy time?
No, I don’t think so. It must be very very hard. Ah…you know, to live in, in my home country I know a lot of famous people, and they always have to have bodyguards, or they have to live behind bars, you know or behind big walls.
And children are always protected and they don’t have the freedom, it’s a big price to pay, I don’t know why.
