在谈到“Describe a hobby you have”这一话题时，一位考生是这样开场的：
Today I am going to talk about collecting postcards—a hobby that is both fascinating and financially rewarding. I would like to explain the basic kinds of collectible postcards, why they are so valuable, and how collectors buy and sell their cards.
It’s Saturday morning, and you are helping clean out your grandmother’s house. After working a while, you stumble upon a trunk, open it, and discover hundreds of old postcards. Thinking about getting to your driving lesson on time, you start tossing the cards into the trash can. Congratulations! You have just thrown away a year’s tuition.
在谈到“Describe a traffic jam you had experienced before”这一话题时，一位考生的开场白值得大家借鉴：
Traffic jams are more than a nuisance. They are a world wide economic problem. In Guangzhou alone, they cost 12 million yuan each year. In major U.S. cities, they are responsible for more than 21 billion liters of wasted fuel and 68 billion dollars in lost productivity. Traffic jams will soon cost the British economy more than 20 billion pounds sterling a year.
有时，令人惊讶的事实能够马上提高我们的兴趣。如以下一位考生的开场白，他在描述“an outdoor activity”前，先介绍了疾病的可怕：
As I speak today, there is a silent killer hiding near here. Who is this silent killer? Not a robber. Not a thief. Not a criminal. It is high blood pressure.
在描述“hobby”这个话题时，比起说“Today, I’m going to talk about Xiangqi.”，不如试试以下一位考生的开场白，他很好地运用技巧，引起了考官的好奇心：
Every day, fierce battles take place in public parks throughout China. Generals move their soldiers against the enemy. Horses, chariots, cannons, even elephants are used in the pursuit of victory. No quarter is given when the losing general is captured. And yet, no lives are lost. No nations are conquered. The battles are fought on chessboards, and they reflect the Chinese people’s love of Xiangqi.
作为考生，我们要认真听清考官的所有问题，但在Part2的开场白中，我们也可以向考官提出一些问题，引起他们的兴趣，但是我们切忌不能要求考官回答我们提出的问题，这些问题必须是不必回答的问题。如“Do you know what is your most valuable possession?”，“Do you know how many township enterprises are started each year in China?”等。请看一位考生在描述“a useful skill”这个话题时的开场白：
Have you ever spent a sleepless night writing a report for your boss? Can you remember rushing to finish a project because you waited too long to start? Do you often feel overwhelmed by all the things you have to get done? If so, you may be the victim of poor time management. Fortunately, there are proven strategies you can follow to use your time effectively and to keep control of your life.
用来开头的引言，可以是名人说过的话，也可以是自己熟悉的人说过的话。一位考生在描述“your future plan”时，用马克·吐温的一句话来开场：
Mark Twain once said: “Predictions are very difficult to make—especially when they involve the future.”
“It is a moment I will always cherish, I was at the mouth of the Minjiang River, when I saw a Chinese crested tern—one of the rarest birds on Earth. I was so excited I could barely keep my binoculars from shaking.” These words come from my uncle, a member of the Fujian Bird Watching Society.
Lin Hao was only 9 years old when the Sichuan earthquake struck Yingxiu Township. He was in school with 30 other students, but only 10 escaped from the building. Risking his own life, Lin Hao went back to the rubble and pulled two of his classmates to safety.
