小白每日分享:

今天来讲讲劳斯莱斯是怎么从陆地到天空的。

 

富二代罗尔斯是个冒险王。早年间他就是热气球爱好者。作为皇家航天俱乐部的创始会员,曾经170余次成功升空,并创造了最长的单人热气球升空经历。

但最让他痴迷至死的还是一种叫做飞机的新玩意儿。

 

1907年起,罗尔斯的热情逐渐转向飞机。他不仅退出了RR公司的管理层,还拼命劝说搭档罗伊斯转向设计航空发动机。但这一次,罗伊斯对这位想一出是一出的小伙伴的提法并不感冒。

 

1909年,罗尔斯买下一架莱特式飞机,并完成了超过两百次飞行。

191062日,罗尔斯用95分钟创造了一项记录,成为不经停就完成两次英吉利海峡穿越的第一人。

这次飞行让罗尔斯名声大噪,甚至超过了他作为劳斯莱斯创始人的名望。

 

然而仅仅一个月后,罗尔斯的机翼在一次表演飞行中折断。罗尔斯伤重不治,年仅32岁。

 

这一次,他再次创造了历史。罗尔斯成为英国历史上第一位飞机遇难者。

 

罗尔斯的去世令罗伊斯倍感打击。对于夺去了伙伴生命的航空发动机,罗伊斯满怀阴影,不愿涉及。

 

罗尔斯逝世7年后,一战爆发。不愿仰望天空的罗伊斯不曾想到,这场战争改写了自己的研发生涯,也改变了罗罗公司的发展轨迹。

 

战争初期,包括罗罗公司决策层在内的很多人都相信:这场战争不会持续太久。

 

但事实很快让罗罗公司陷入困境。旷日持久的战争让劳斯莱斯汽车销量锐减,公司面临银行抽贷的危险。

 

还好,公司从英国政府获得了研制和生产航空发动机的订单。罗罗公司先是在政府要求下代工生产法国雷诺的飞机发动机,随即脱胎于扎实的技术积累,在1915年研制投产自己的Eagle发动机。

 

1917年,推力更大的FalconHawk发动机相继问世。

 

RR公司的航空发动机很快成为英国空军的主力装备。为了确保品质,罗伊斯顶住政府压力,拒不将技术授权其他发动机厂商,坚持由RR公司自主生产。

 

到一战结束时,差不多一半的同盟国飞机装备了RR公司生产的发动机。

 

20年代末,打定主意不生产飞机发动机的罗伊斯发现,公司的主营收入已经从汽车转向了飞机发动机。他本人的研究重心也转向航空发动机,直至辞世。

 

1933年,70岁的罗伊斯与世长辞。直到去世前一晚,他还在信封背面画可调式防震器的草图。

 

两年后,被命名为梅林(Merlin)的飞机发动机终于问世。这款罗伊斯留给世人的最后作品产量将近15万台,成为二战中盟军最重要的装备之一,并在战后成为民用航空发动机的雏形。(看过敦刻尔克的同学们,电影里英军的飞机用的就是这款梅林发动机)

 

32岁的罗尔斯和70岁的罗伊斯分隔23年,终于在天上重逢。

 

他们或许无从预见,RR公司在他们身后数度面临经营危机,并将经历国营和分拆的沧桑变迁。

 

但他们概当欣慰的是,代表两人姓氏的重叠字母R依然是这个星球上最隽永的商标之一,每日穿梭于世界上最豪华的酒店和最繁忙的空中航道。

 

他们更当欣喜的是,这个缩写已成为完美主义的化身,代表着陆地上最好的汽车和天空中性能最优异的发动机,在各自领域继续书写富二代冒险家的人生传奇和穷二代工程师的华丽逆袭。

 


一、DAY 20 题目解析:

PART 1:

Bored

1. When do you feel bored?

事实性问题,有扩展地回答即可。

A lot of occasions I will feel bored, waiting for somebody to come at the bus station, lining up to buy my popular food and drinks, getting nothing to do during a tediousmeeting, and so on.

 

2. What do you usually do when you feel bored?

如果大家想要罗列好几个经常做的事,用sometimes…, other times…回答会显得更有层次。

Most of the time, I’d like to listen to some music. I cannot imagine spending a day without music. It makes me feel so peaceful, calms me down, helps me be alone and music makes me happy. Sometimes, I just went outside to walk around.

 

3. Who do you like to stay when you feel bored?

事实性问题,有扩展地回答即可。

My girlfriend, of course. I feel happy to be with her. We usually drove to a nearby city to havea short trip together, enjoying the local cuisine and going to some places we’venever been there. Sometimes, we just played video games together. 

PART 2:

Describe something you do that helps you concentrate on your work or study

You should say

What it is

How you do it

How often you do it

And explain why you think it helps you concentrate

可以说你用一些小软件来帮助自己集中注意力,比如白噪音,也可以说听某类音乐可以帮助你集中。每道题大家都可以大开脑洞。如果让我来说,我可能会说工作或者学习之前我会告诉自己:你认真学习工作两小时,你就可以看一集动漫\美剧或玩一个小时你喜欢的游戏。这样我的学习工作效率就会极高。

Honestly speaking,I don’t believe we can pay attention to two things at the same time coz, youknow, we are not Sherlock Holmes, doing several tasks simultaneously. It is because one task may be distracted by the other one, and finally we will probably end up with nothing accomplished. I guess we will get absent-minded if we are distracted by several different things at the same time.

For example, while I am working in front of computers, I sometimes might chat with my onlinefriends. So if I want to work peacefully and efficiently, I really need aclutter-free environment. When I am working in my company and reading at home, Ilike my desk clear of any clutter except one computer on it. All of thedocuments, pens and other electronic gadgets, I would put them in the drawers andmost of the time, I will turn off mobile phones, email notification, etc to prevent me from jumping from one thing to another. There was a time when I loved watching the British episode Sherlock.I tried listening to music while doing calculations at the same time, but it turned out that I made several mistakes in easy tasks and I couldn’t remember a single word in the songs that I listened just before. So I have to prevent any distraction by creating a working environment for myself and it really works.

 

Describe a time youlost something important

You should say:

What you lost

How you lost it

What you did after you lost it

And explain how you felt about losing it

可以说实体的物品,比如有意义的一些东西(项链,戒指,书等)。一些非实体的也可以说,比如某次你丢失了自己的耐心,善良等。当然了一些自己特的丢东西的经历也是很好的素材,比如上一次雅思考身份证丢了,出国护照丢了等等。

I was in the second year of my university and at that time I lost my laptop with some other necessary papers and the experience was so bitter that I still remember it. I was on my way to home from the university and I took a public bus to reach home. I had my bag with me that contained my laptop, charger, some music DVDs,a pen drive, 2 books and some other necessary papers. I lost the bag so the things that I had in my bag were also lost.

 

I remember that I had my bag with me and I had to stand inside the bus as there was no seat available. After an hour I left the bus and took a shared taxi. Finally, I walked for a while to reach home and when I entered my room, I felt that the bag is missing. I got so tensed and got back to the street and tried to remember exactly where I lost the item. But I could not remember exactly whereI lost my bag.

 

I felt so low and depressed that I could not sleep at night. Even though I knew that it was impossible to get the stuff back, I tried hard to have those items back. I reported to the nearby police station,contacted with the bus authority but after 7-8 days I gave up all the hopes I had to get my items back. I felt like a child who lost his most important toys! Honestly, the whole experience and the feelings were pretty depressing. 


一部分可以串的新题放在下面给大家参考:


a city or country you want to live the most in the future(近水之地)

a photo you have taken(近水之地,有意义的晚餐)

a place in your city you want to go to(近水之地、公园)

Quiet place(近水之地)

A trip you took by public transport ( 近水之地)

Describe a party you enjoyed (近水之地,talkative person等)

Recent event that made you happy (近水之地等)

Something interesting a friend likes to do(运动)

二、题目 (解析请看第三个图文消息)

PART 1:

1. What did you usually do during your vacations? 

2. Do you haveany plan about your next vacation?

3. What’s thebest vacation you had?

PART 2:

Why you help this person

And explain how this person benefited from your help

 

Describe a magazine you like to read

You should say:

What it is

When and how often you like to read it

What the contents of the magazine are

And explain why you like this magazine

帮助part3:

1. Do you like helping others?

2. Do you think people are less willing to help others?

3. Should children be taught to help others?

杂志part3

1. What kinds of magazines are most popular?

2. Do people read magazines for fun or for learning?

3. Do men like to read fashion magazines

 

 

最后提醒一下大家:

1. part 2的一分钟准备时间里,不要一直不停写,几个单词就行了,不然容易被考官判定为背答案。

2. 在考试过程中,你极有可能遇到的都是准备过,背过的题目。如果太紧张忘记下面要说的是什么,不要牵强地去回忆,想起什么说什么,保持流利和自然。

3. 如果遇到没准备过的part2,淡定一点,想想能不能借鉴准备过的素材。实在没有可以串的那就临场发挥一个简单好说的即可。

4. 如果遇到不会答的p1 p3,想想跟朋友会怎么聊天,简单清楚表达出你的想法即可。

写在最后的话:

感谢大家相信小白参加了口语团,希望这21天的学习多多少少对你有些帮助。

作为一个情怀比不上攀哥,文采比不上颜老,精彩经历也比不上小男男的普通的人,在团结束的时候我还是跟大家说两句吧。

 

有很多同学跟我说:“小白我基础真的很差”;“我不敢开口”;“感觉口语已经没救了”。

从小是在四川的一个少数民族自治州长大的(没错我是少数民族哈哈哈),当地教育水平不高,我也不爱学习。大学第一年各种逃课整个荒废掉,大二因为一些原因突然醒悟。我只花了一学期的时间,从吊车尾冲到年级前三,也只用了一学期从哑巴英语到能流利自然的交流还在外教的口语课上拿满分,当时那种学疯了,痛并快乐着的感受已经刻进了我的生命里。

之前听一位老师讲:优秀是一种习惯。的确是这样,从那之后我的人生差不多就开挂了,大二雅思首战裸考7分,学校的大小奖项被我拿了个遍,代表学校参加各种高逼格活动……

很多人说是因为我悟性高,我聪明,但这些光环背后的努力,心酸,一个人学习的孤独感真的只有自己知道。

累得想放弃的时候再多坚持一下,可能就是多的那一下,你就破茧成蝶了。
