2018年11月18日，大学英语六级口语考试也终于如期而至。口语考试的时候往往是许多考生最为紧张的时刻，不过口语考试并不是什么洪水猛兽，只要稍加练习，做到有话可说，就不会在考场上出现尴尬的场面。第一场个人陈述的主题为“elderly people”，我们来看一下就“elderly people”这一主题展开的一些常用的表述：
China is facing the serious problem of aging population. By the end of 2016, China’s elderly population aged 60 and above was more than 230 million. Nowadays elderly people have become the focus of the social concern.
We usually call people over the age of sixty elderly people. Most of them have retired or don’t work full-time. Some elder people enjoy their lives. They have more time to do things they are interested in. They spend time travelling at home and abroad or doing exercises. Sometimes they get together with their friends. However, some elderly people don’t feel happy. They feel boring and stay at home all day after retirement. Life seems to be meaningless for them. At the same time, they feel lonely because their children are too busy to accompany them.
We should pay more attention to elderly people and take care of them physically and mentally.
