之前我们提到过托福听力里一些重要的考点,比如例子、态度、对比等等。今天我们聊一个比较特殊的考点:Conversation中呈现的“他人”。

  备考托福的童鞋们都晓得,每篇Conversation都是一男一女在对话,聊的话题多集中在学术论文、图书馆、课程注册或是校园生活类的场景。固然场景不同会带来词汇、句子内容上的一些变化,但是基本上来说Conversation是有很明白的“套路”的。大家有没有发现,每当两人对话的时分,聊到另外的一个“他人”或者一些“他人”,经常会在这个中央出一道题。最常见的“他人”无外乎某个教员(Professor/Teacher)、某个导师(Advisor/Chair/Instructor)、同学朋友(classmate/roommate/friend/student)、以至某个家人(Parents/Brother/Cousin)等等。

  我平常上课的时分会一再强调听力文章里“例子”的重要性,但这里说的例子绝不只限于for example/instance、such as/like之类的,决议一个东西是不是例子不能只依赖所谓的“提示词”,因为没几个例子是真会说到for example这样的话的。大家一定要从内容上动身,扩展关于“例子”概念的了解,你会发现其实某个人、某个中央、某个东西、某种动物、一个故事、一个段子、某个阅历都能够当成例子,而关于这样的例子考试经常会出一道题:Why does the professor mention/discuss/introduce XXX?

  上过我课的同学一定有印象,我们在课上会专门练习“抓例子”的才干,每次听到例子的时分让大家养成下意识的习惯,在笔记里用 ~ 这个符号标出来,听完文章以至在做题之前我就会问大家刚才听到了几个例子?有人在笔记里找到两个~符号,有人找到三个,接下来做题的时分你会发现大部分例子都能对应一道题,而没有考出来的我则会给大伙儿加一道例子题。

  我们今天聊的Conversation里的“他人”,就是一个十分有特性的考点, 我们也把它归类到咱们的“例子”里,因为是个“人”嘛。下次听Conversation听到了老王老张老刘,可不能再疏忽了,一定要用心听分明当时聊的是什么,最好能用很少的词把这个例子触及到的话题简单记下来(一定不能写得太多,写字太多的话会影响听自身,最好的笔记永远是字少但是信息抓得准,笔记起到的是辅助记忆的作用,不能因为记笔记而阻碍了听力自身,这样就得不偿失了)。

  给大家找几个托福里比较有代表性的“他人”,咱们看看这些题都长什么样:

  托福Conversation 2:

  Student: The section on dialects, ‘cause…like, that’s the kind of thing that’s always sort of intrigued me, you know? … Well, especially now, ‘cause I’ve got like one roommate who is from the south and another one from New York. And we all talk like totally different, you know?

  Why is the student interested in learning more about dialects?

  A. she often has trouble understanding what other students are saying

  B. she is trying to change the way she speaks

  C. she is aware that her own dialect differs from those of her roommates

  D. she spent her childhood various places where different dialects are spoken

  正确答案:C

  托福Conversation 2:

  Student: …My chair person told me that if I did independent field research in addition to the assigned work in each course; they would count as intermediate level courses. My classmates, um, some of my classmates, did this for an easy way to meet their intermediate course requirement, but I did it to get the kind of depth in those topics I was going for….

  Why does the man mention his classmates?

  A. To explain how he obtained information about field research

  B. To point out that many students like to do field research

  C. To show that it is difficult to get intermediate-level credits

  D. To emphasize his motivation to do filed research in two of his courses

  正确答案:D (这道题从考点来看的话又是“他人”,又是别的同学跟自己的“对比”)

  托福Conversation 2:

  L: Actually, you need to return it today. That is if you want to check out those books today. That's our policy.

  S: Oh, I didn't know that.

  L: Yeah, not a lot of people realize that. In fact, every semester we get a few students who have their borrowing privileges suspended completely because they haven't returned books. They're allowed to use books only in the library. They're not allowed to check anything out because of unreturned books.

  What is the woman trying to explain when she mentions students who have lost their borrowing privileges?

  A. Why the man should not photocopy part of the book

  B. The reasons for one of the library’s policies

  C. What will happen if the man does not return the book

  D. The reason the man has to fill out a form

  正确答案:C
