剑桥雅思15Test3口语要求“描述一个著名的…” 是Part 2人物类常见题型，例如 “describe a famous person”, “describe a famous athlete”, “describe a famous singer”. 对于此类问题无外乎回答：此人所处的行业，取得的成绩，对你的启发。人物类题型在描写细节上难度较大，同学们通常能够想到的形容词也较为有限，那么可以配合具体事例从侧面反映你想要描述的人物的不同寻常的性格特征，或区别于他人的行为处事方法，切记不要简单罗列形容词。同样，在描述他人的成就或生平时，容易暴露简单句过度使用的缺陷，句式的多样性也需要引起同学们的重点注意。
