You will have to talkabout the topic for one to two minutes.
You have one minuteto think about what you are ing to say.
You can make somenotes to help you if you wish.
1. Describe a sport stadium that’s important in your city.
You should say:
where it is
how often you there
what people do there
and explain why you think it is important
The stadium that I’dparticularly like to introduce is Ji’nanOlympic Center, which was specially constructed for 11th NationalGames held in Ji’nan in2009. This center lies in east Ji’nan,about 11 km away from city center. It’s onJingshi Rd which is well-known for its role as the most important traffic artery in my city. Thecenter consists of two major stadiums. One is called Donghe, serving a function of holdingindoor games like badminton competition, while another one is named Xiliu, principallybeing responsible for holding outdoor sport matches like track and field games.
However, after the National Games, the center’s role has been shifted. Basically, itnow serves as a home field for the localfootball team-- Shandong Lu’nengFootball Team. Besides, it’s nowopen for the public to do sports in its well-equipped stadiums, which is alsothe chief reason why I there frequently. On average, I play badminton thereonce a week and some male friends of mine enjoy playing basketball there almostevery week. I suppose that residents tendto there because the sports facilities there are of high quality. Also,the ancillary facilities,such as the bathroom, the lounge, and of course the service center,outstandingly cater toresidents’ need of enjoying sports. Ok,one thing I’d also like to mention here isthat the two stadiums are now holding almost all concerts in the city. Ipersonally have already been to about 5 concerts there, which left me unforgettable memories.
Finally, I’d like todiscuss some profoundinfluences the center has brought to us. First of all, it provides the public aterrific opportunity to enjoysports, improving public health and bettering local dwellers’ life quality. Equally, the society hasbeen offered considerable benefits, such as tax revenue t from visitors andfrom charge for facility use. Anyway, the construction of this sports centerhas made local residents and the city major beneficiaries.

2. Describe something you enjoy doing after work or study.
You should say:
what it is
who you usually do it with
how long you usually spend doing this activity
and explain what you get from doing this activity
Well, this topic is particularly interesting to me as I havebeen into body-building inrecent half year. Body-building is a complex thing, which aims to build bodyshape, or muscles, through physical training, a combination of strength training, endurance training, aerobic training and so forth.
Normally, I to gym at least 3 times a week. I there bymyself but I train with my personaltrainer. As some other young people in China, I bought and attend conditioning classes in a gymclose to my home. During my personal training class, different from thosepublic conditioning classes open for every member, I do specially designed training.What attracts me most is that my personal trainer knows my strengths andweaknesses, so he carefully designs suitable training sessions in order to meetmy needs. On average, I spend 2 hours working out in the gym, of which 1 houris for personal training class and another 1 is for aerobic training likejogging or cycling.
Now, it’s the 7thmonth I have been kept doing this kind of activity, and I cannot be more surprised at the change of my body. I wouldsay doing this thing is one of the most correct decisions I have made recentlybecause it’s truly amazing to witness thechange of my body shape day by day. If not for doing this, I would by no meansknow the importance of Body MassIndex (BMI); neither would I know what Lean Body Mass (LBM) means to a person. If not for this, Iwould definitely only do aerobic training like running as silly as a toad, because to increase Lean Body Mass bydoing strength training is of paramount importance to someone who wants to loseweight and build rgeous body shape. Anyway, body-building has changed me alot, and I do believe that I will keep doing this.
