雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe your grandparent’s job 祖辈工作/爷爷奶奶的工作
雅思口语part 1部分最常见的问题就是问你是个学生还是已经工作。如果回答工作的话，接下来就会问你是做什么的。这次part 2也出了类似的问题，不过问的是爷爷奶奶的工作。答案的内容可以有很多，比如医生、工程师、公务员、科研人员等，甚至农民也是工作的一种。如果大家想要说的工作不太好描述，可以将重点放在工作环境或者工作的辛苦程度上。
Describe your grandparent’s job
You should say:
What it was
How long he or she had this job
How he or she got the job
And whether you would like to have this job
My grandfather is a chef, working at the most historical hotel in our city. It used to be quite prestigious. Whenever there was a celebrity or a high-rank government official came to my city, this hotel would be his first choice. With time passing by, the hotel’s status has declined, but it is still among the top players.
My grandfather has been a cook for more than 40 years. At first, he was only allowed to stand aside, pass on the kitchen wares, and wash them after a day’s work. Gradually he gained the right to prepare ingredients, , like chopping vegetables, slicing meat, and peeling potatoes. After 5 years, he could finally cook food by himself. And now, he is the king of the kitchen. Everybody has to follow his command and make dishes under his instructions.
My grandfather chose this job quite accidentally. When he was a child, everything was scarce, especially food. He was always hungry. So he wanted to do some job that could fill his stomach. And he found that even in the most difficult years, cooks could still feed their family. So he went to the hotel and became a kitchen assistant.
Although I love cooking for my parents and girlfriend, being a cook has never been on my list. It is quite physically demanding. You have to stand in front of a cooker for hours and kept swinging the scoop. I do not think I am fit enough to manage that.
