  这个雅思口语arrive early for an appointment的素材,可以捎带脚把“不让用手机”的经历搞上去,如果新题中又出现了“wait”相关的话题,我们也可以稍微修改一下直接用。总之,把这种“刺激”的素材烂熟于心,绝对有备无患。
  This topic reminds me of the time I arrived early for an appointment to go skydiving.
  That was a year ago, my mom and I went to Gold Beach, Australia, which is a popular place to try this extreme sport. When we booked this activity, the lady behind the counter told me I need to arrive early the next day so that the coach could give me some proper guidance and I need to finish some paperwork, like filling out forms about personal information. And she told me, cell phones are not allowed up there, I mean, when I was up there in the sky. And there's no place for me to put it in the store, so I'd better leave it in the hotel.
  And the next day, in order to avoid the rush hour, I set off early in the morning, and I arrived way earlier than the arranged time. There was nothing for me to do. I just sat there, waiting for my turn. They didn't even offer magazines or TV in the waiting room. And the worst part is, I didn't take my phone with me because of what the lady told me the day before. To be honest, I had mixed feelings, on the one hand, I was super bored, on the other hand, I was psyched about the jump. I was at the bottom of the waiting list, so I waited almost two hours before I got my turn. But I have to say, it was completely worth the wait. It was the first time I challenged myself and overcame my fear of height, so it was quite an experience.
