第一类叫经典题目，这类话题一般是几年都不会有什么变化的，如 a person you helped。对于这类话题各位烤鸭一定要注意，你说的内容是否新鲜，要知道考官对于这类问题已经把能听到的内容都听的差不多了。你要想拿个高分应该在语言质量和内容上有所创新。
第二类叫新兴题目，此类题目一般隔一段时间会添加到考官手册中，如 a good law in China.这类题目主要是对第一批被考到的烤鸭们构成威胁。原因很简单：没思路，不会说。不过以后的烤鸭就比较好命，只要看到过相关的内容稍加准备就会滔滔不绝说上2分钟了。如果你认为这类题目第二部分说的不错，小心考官在第三部分给你打个埋伏，找点难题试试你到底有没有真正的口语能力。如果你能顶得住，拿高分就非你莫属了。
第三类叫改造题目，这种题目会让你联想到一些老的题目，如 an activity that you played with other children 其实就是a childhood game的变形。对于这类题目其实就是换了个马甲而已，但是对于烤鸭们而言一定要注意这样的变化。请你把变化的内容说给考官听，而不要简单的重复你背诵好的老题。
