Part3很重要,不要忽视!来学习这一道native speaker写的范例答案,关于materialism。

题目:

Why do you think some people are materialistic?

答案:

To be honest I think the modern-day obsession with material possessions is primarily a result of increasing standards of living in many countries. We have steadily moved from a hand-to-mouth existence to most of us having high disposable incomes. As a result, we have more money to buy things. It's probably as simple as that although you probably also have to factor in the power of advertising and peer pressure. If, for example, your friends have the latest phones and your neighbours buy a new car then you will probably want to keep up with them. We are becoming increasingly unable to know the difference between want and need.

语言点:

obsession with sth 对...的迷恋

material possession 物质所有物

standards of living 生活标准

hand-to-mouth 仅够糊口的、勉强维持生计的
