十天突破雅思口语低分技巧总结

1. At what age are people considered to be “old” in China?

每个人的想法不同,我的是…

That is really a big question. People’s views much be divided on this. From my perspective, …

按时间区分:以前觉得70+算老人,现在这个定义慢慢延后,因为人们寿命更长,更多的老年人仍旧发挥余热,为社会做出了很多的贡献

The easiest way to divide the old from all is to judge according to the chronological age. In the past, people over 70s are considered to be old, but this line has been shifted gradually with the time goes by, because people nowadays live much longer than before. Many older people can still make great contribution to the society, so broadly speaking, I think, those over 80s, or those who are no longer physically capable can be regarded as just entering the twilight life.

生理年龄不再是唯一的衡量标准,一个人的心理年龄和本身的身体素质更加重要

The biological age has no longer been the only judgment, because the real psychological age and the physical fitness differ from person to person, and they seem to be more important for others to decide whether the person is qualified as “old” or not.

大体而言,50岁以上就感觉在慢慢变老,的却,那个时候的身体和心理逐渐在走下坡路

Broadly speaking, when people are over their 50s, they will gradually feel that they are getting older. Indeed, the physical and mental condition do decrease year by year, with a higher possibility of suffering from diseases and less tolerant and acceptable to different opinions and new ideas.

一个人失去了对人生的热情,其实就已经老了。所有常常会用老来形容一个没有激情的人,而不是形容一个人的年龄

I firmly believe that being “old” is simply connected with the state of mind. If one loses passion for life, they are indeed becoming old. This is why, in China, we tend to describe someone who show very little enthusiasm to life as an old bookish man.

2. Why do old people today live longer than in the past?

医疗水平变高

The advance in medical service means that more diseases become curable and can be easily diagnosed at an early age. Senile diseases such as diabetes and hypertension are less common among the older pensioner and most of them can even live very long with the illness being uncured permanently.
