雅思大作文题目

艺术能告诉我们什么

In today’s world of advanced science and technology, we still greatly value our artists and writers. What can arts tell us about life that science and technology cannot?  



解析&审题


题材:生活

题型:report

关键词:art + science and technology + life

需要讨论的观点:艺术能告诉哪些科技不能告诉我们的东西?

建议思路:从物质、心理、社会三层次对比讨论


复现情况:2011年7月16日原题



上周考试重复的是2010年的一个原题,本题复现了2011年的题目,雅思官方这样命题,也是让人难以捉摸了!


本次考试题目一出来,各雅思备考公众号的专家大师们一片哀鸿,几乎一致认为这次考试“太难了”。那么,这个题目真的太难了吗?


关于生活,科技能够告诉我们什么?艺术能够告诉我们什么?哪些是艺术可以告诉我们,而科技不能告诉我们的?


如果我们无法提炼观点,本题的确会让很多同学一筹莫展,但是熟悉唐老师“写作三层次”(即物质、心理、社会)思路的同学,可能很快就能找到写作方向,即科技只能作用于我们的物质生活,而艺术则能让我们理解自己的内心和更广阔的社会!沿着本思路,这个看似“太难”的题目其实相当容易。


雅思考试中,有很多“艺术”题材的作文,这里仅列举近5年的原题。


1. Art classes like painting and drawing are important to students’ development and should be made compulsory in high school. To what extent do you agree or disagree? (2017/1/7) 艺术课应该成为高中必修课吗?


2. Some people think any government money spent in supporting the artists such as painters, musicians and poets should be spent on more important things. To what extent do you agree or disagree? (2017/9/9) 政府应该资助艺术家吗?


3. Some people think that arts (such as painting and music) do not directly improve people's life, so government should spend money on other areas. Do you agree or disagree? (2018/5/12) 政府应该资助艺术吗?


4. Some people claim that public museums and art galleries will be not be needed because people can see historical objects and works of art by using a computer. Do you agree or disagree with this opinion? (2019/8/31)电脑时代我们还需要博物馆和艺术馆吗?



高分范文


Over the past two hundred years, the huge progress achieved in science and technology has significantly transformed our world, but it has never made artists such as painters, musicians, and writers unnecessary in our life. This is, in my view, because arts can give us a lot of things that science and technology cannot.


Science and technology improves our knowledge about the world by telling us what it is like, or can be like. It was Newton, for instance, who told us why objects move and stop moving, and Einstein who told us that time is the fourth dimension of space. However, science and technology cannot tell us about ourselves, or why and how we should live in the world. And this is exactly where arts cut in.


As science and technology can influence our life on the outside, arts can move us on the inside. Through imagination, a painting, poem or novel can take us to the depths of our heart and make us understand the true meaning of our existence. Anyone who has ever read Ernest Hemingway’s Farewell to Arms will be struck by the cruelty of war and the value of loving and being loved, and those who have been inspired by Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony will never give up even in times of adversity.  


Furthermore, arts can lead us outwardly to the vast world, real or imaginary, which provides us with opportunities to understand our responsibilities for the world as a whole. For example, the movie Schindler's List tells us that we, as human beings, should love, rather than hating each other, and the novel Silent Spring gives us a warning that the Earth will be destroyed if we go on polluting it the way we do now.    


In summary, though the advanced science and technology today has blessed us with a prosperous material life, we should never dispense with arts that reveal the meaning and value of that life.

01



Over the past two hundred years, the huge progressachieved in science and technology has significantlytransformed our world, but it has never made artists such as painters, musicians, and writers unnecessary in our life. This is, in my view, because arts can give us a lot of things that science and technology cannot.


在过去的两百年里,科学技术的巨大进步极大地改变了我们的世界,但从未使画家、音乐家、作家等艺术家在我们的生活中变得不必要。在我看来,这是因为艺术可以给我们很多科学技术所不能提供的东西。  


解析

(1)本段直接转写题目内容,并给出自己的观点。

(2)Achieve 实现;取得

(3)Transform 改变


02



Science and technology improves our knowledge about the world by telling us what it is like, or can be like. It was Newton, for instance, who told us why objects move and stop moving, and Einstein who told us that time is the fourth dimension of space. However, science and technology cannot tell us about ourselves, or why and how we should live in the world. And this is exactly where arts cut in.


科学技术告诉我们世界是什么样的,或者可能是什么样的,从而提高我们对世界的认识。例如,牛顿告诉我们为什么物体会运动和停止运动,爱因斯坦告诉我们时间是空间的第四维。然而,科学技术不能告诉我们关于我们自己的事情,也不能告诉我们我们为什么要生活在这个世界上。而这正是艺术的切入点。


解析

(1)本段先简单谈科学技术能告诉我们什么以及不能告诉我们什么,然后引入艺术。

(2)Dimension 纬度

(3)Cut in 切入

(4)It is ... who... 这是强调句,表示“正是......做......”,大家需要掌握这个句型。

(5)这里举例牛顿和爱因斯坦,但大家也可以根据自己的知识范围举其他例证。下同。


03



As science and technology can influence our life on the outside, arts can move us on the inside. Through imagination, a painting, poem or novel can take us to the depths of our heart and make us understand the true meaning of our existence. Anyone who has ever read Ernest Hemingway’s Farewell to Arms will be struck by the cruelty of war and the value of loving and being loved, and those who have been inspired by Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony will never give up even in times of adversity.  


科学技术可以从外部影响我们的生活,艺术则可以在内部推动我们。通过想象,一幅画、一首诗或一部小说可以把我们带到内心深处,让我们明白我们存在的真正意义。任何读过欧内斯特·海明威《永别了,武器》的人都会被战争的残酷和爱与被爱的价值所打动,那些受到贝多芬第五交响曲启发的人即使在逆境中也决不会放弃。


解析

(1)本段讨论艺术影响我们生活的第一个方面:我们的内心。通过举例来证明。

(2)On the outside 在外面

(3)On the inside 在里面

(4)Existence 存在;生存

(5)Be struck by... 被......打动

(6)Inspire 激励

(7)In times of adversity 在逆境的时候


04



Furthermore, arts can lead us outwardly to the vast world, real or imaginary, which provides us with opportunities to understand our responsibilities for the world as a whole. For example, the movie Schindler's List tells us that we, as human beings, should love, rather than hating each other, and the novel Silent Spring gives us a warning that the Earth will be destroyed if we go on polluting it the way we do now.   


此外,艺术可以把我们带到广阔的世界(无论是真实的还是想象的),这给我们提供了机会去理解我们对整个世界的责任。例如,电影《辛德勒的名单》告诉我们,作为人类,我们应该彼此相爱,而不是互相憎恨;小说《寂静的春天》给了我们一个警告:如果我们继续像现在这样污染地球,地球将被毁灭。


解析

(1)本段讨论艺术影响我们生活的第二个方面:让我们明白对世界的责任。

(2)Imaginary 想象的

(3)Provide somebody with something 给某人提供某物(注意provide的介词搭配) 


05



In summary, though the advanced science and technology today has blessed us with a prosperous material life, we should never dispense with arts that reveal the meaning and value of that life.  


综上所述,虽然今天先进的科学技术给我们带来了繁荣的物质生活,但我们决不能放弃那些揭示生活意义和价值的艺术。


解析

(1)本段从三个方面提出解决办法。在这一部分,考生应该避免连续使用...should...这样的句式,而是应该考虑用多种方式来提出建议。

(2)Socialize with... 与......交往

(3)Events 活动;事件

(4)Solely 惟一地(= only, exclusively)

(5)Be dependent upon/on... 取决于......;依赖于......

(6)Harmonious 和谐的
