【雅思考题一】 What aspect of your hometown has changed a lot in recent years?
【奥巴马答曰】 Here in Shanghai, we see the growth that has caught the attention of the world – the soaring skyscrapers, the bustling streets and entrepreneurial activity.
【雅思考题二】 What do you think of American people?

【朗阁小点评】 最好能在这一回答的开始部分加入一个引子，来说明climate change and global warming与greenhouse gases的关系。你可以说：Well, as we all know, greenhouse gas emissions are largely responsible for climate change and global warming, and …，如此巧妙的过渡使奥巴马的话语成为我们攻克雅思口语的利器。
