摘要：最新雅思口语Part2满分范文--描述重要的历史事件Describe an important event in history in your country
最近雅思口语Part2考了这样一个话题，描述重要的历史事件-Describe an important event in history in your country.
Ok, I am going to talk about one of the most important events that happened in Chinese history. It's about how the ancient silk road was created. Since it played a vital role in history and nowadays, I'd like to share this event with you.
To the best of my knowledge, from 138-139 BC, a man named Zhang Qian who was an outstanding Western Han diplomat and traveller blazed a trail from China to the west. Actually, he started his journey from Chang'An, the ancient capital of China and ended at the eastern shore of Mediterranean Sea, which linked up fields, deserts, grasslands and mountains from China, to Middle Asia and to Europe. This was the ancient well-known silk road.
And finally, about why the historic event was so important. It's fair to say that it was a road that bridged China and the West. For example, we carried the great Chinese inventions like silk, gunpower, papermaking, and printing to the west and we brought back Western inventions, art works and cultures to China. Plus, the Ancient Silk Road has been named the world cultural heritage by UNESCO. And China is now focusing on developing a modern silk road. Thank you.
