惯类(how often…?)题型，运动类话题还可能出现未来假设题型 (e.g.: will people … more or less in the future?). 对于喜好类问题的作答，可以考虑: 表态 → 原因 → 举例 的思考方式，如果原因不太容易入手，也可以使用：表态 → 举例 → 频率的作答思路从而在举例的过程中尽可能多的添加细节，展现语法多样性。面对习惯类题型，可以考虑结合频率副词或其他表示频率的词组与具体频次相结合的方法阐述自己对于某种运动参与的频率，而不是简单的使用often，everyday这类人尽皆知的词汇。
1. Did you learn to swim when you were a child? [Why / Why not?]
Yes, my dad firstly tried to teach me how to swim in a summer holiday when I was 7 or so. I was not able to acquire that skill instantly at that time, therefore he continued to do it every summer for about 3 years until I finally got it.
2. How often do you go swimming now? [Why / Why not?]
I joined a gym with a standardized pool and the membership provides me unlimited access to it. As it’s getting warmer, I go for a swim every other day, usually in the morning coz there will be fewer people share the lane with me.
3. What places are there for swimming where you live? [Why?]
Apart from public swimming pools, there are still quite a lot of private ones which you can find the hiring information on the internet. They are usually in luxury hotels which provide warm and hygienic environment as well as great service.
4. Do you think it would be more enjoyable to go swimming outdoors or at an indoor pool? [Why?]
My preference of indoor or outdoor pools really depends on temperature. It’s not easy jumping into a freezing outdoor pool in the early morning, especially in cold weather, no matter how hard I try to muster up the courage. In that case, swimming indoor will be heavenly nice.
