英语六级口语考试真题：Is the airplane a safe means of transportation
A: Hi, how is it going?
B: Oh, it has been a busy week for me. Honestly, I am kinda worn out.
A: Then maybe you should take a break and have some rest. The Dragon Boat Festival is coming and we’ll get a three-day holiday for the festival. It may be a good idea for you to take a trip to reward yourself.
B: Yeah, you are right. Actually, I’m already working on a travel plan. I decided to visit the Disney World in Shanghai!
A: Cool! That is a world full of fairy tales and is worthy of your time and money. How will you get in Shanghai then?
B: Well, I’m considering whether I should take a train or an airplane. It’s faster to travel by plane, but I’m afraid it’s not that safe.
A: Yeah, safety is an issue to concern about during a travel. But I think there is no need to worry yourself with the safety of going by plane. After years of development, the aviation technology has evolved to be more mature. Airline companies are also doing their best to improve the level of management and their staff are strictly trained to provide professional service.
B: That makes sense.
A: Research shows that the number of trips made by plane is increasing, which makes the airplane become one of the major means of transportation now. So, don’t worry. It also save quite more time than the train.
B: That is very persuasive, thank you! I will go and check air tickets as soon as possible. It’s always hard to book tickets when it is holiday, right?
A: Ha, good luck.
