如何在托福口說考試中做筆記

眾所周知,為了模擬北美大學課堂的學術氣氛和學生在校園生活的方方面面,托福考試的口說部分首次允許考生做課堂筆記(筆記考完要上交,但筆記不算分)、並要求考生能夠發表自己的意見和看法,而且必須具備對教授推薦的參考書寫出讀書報告、闡明自己觀點的能力以及其他處理校園生活中可能遇到的各種情況的能力。

本文擬對托福口說考試(包括獨立口說任務和綜合口說任務)中如何做筆記的問題做深人地分析和探討。

🔵 Note-taking in the Independent Task

該部分要求考生就某一自己熟悉的話題闡述自己的觀點。

  • 一類問題是自由回答間題(Free-choice Response),如:
    If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? Use details to support your response.
  • 另一類是選擇類問題(Paired-choice Response),如:
    Do you like to try new kinds of food or eat the same kind of food all the time? Use details and examples to support your response.

準備時間為15秒,回答問題時間為45秒。問題會被朗讀出來,且同時出現在螢幕上。考生可以不用理會電腦的朗讀,迅速閱讀完問題。這樣可以爭取大概5秒,那麼在這大約20秒內,考生可在草稿紙上迅速記下自己所要表達的關鍵資訊。這裡記筆記的方法為「TST表格」。

超實用托福口說範例&技巧大全

🔷 TST (Topic-Supporting ideas – Transitions)
意思是考生須在草稿紙上用一到兩個詞寫下欲表達的Topic(主題),Supporting ideas(分論點)和Transitions(信號詞)。
下面試舉一例:

🔹 Question:
Sometimes students have to write papers. Sometimes they have to give oral presentations. Which activity do you think is better for students, and why? Include details and examples in your explanation.

考生應迅速在紙上寫下「pap」、「strong read write exams」、「more time think deeply」…等信息。
見以下TST( Topic—Supporting ideas—Transitions )表格:

🔹Topic:
pap (writing papers is better for students)
Supporting ideas: (Why writing papers is better)

  • strong read write exams (need strong writing skills for reading and writing and prepare for exams)
  • more time think deeply(show understanding for more time to explain and think deeply)

🔹 Transitions: firstly because, so also Sample Answer

I think writing papers is better for students. Firstly we need to develop strong writing skills. We go to school mainly to learn reading and writing, so we need a lot of practice. Examinations require a lot of writing, so writing papers is good reparation. Also, I think writing is a better way to show that I understand. When I write a paper, I can think deeply because I have more time to explain my ideas.

再舉一例:

🔹 Question: Where would you want to be professionally in ten years? Use details to support your response.

考生應迅速在紙上寫下「own bus…」、「master」、「work com…」、「start」…等資訊見以下 TST ( Topic—Supporting ideas—Transitions )表格。

🔹 Topic statement:

  • own bus… (I would like to own my own business) Supporting ideas:( How I will work toward owning my business)
  • master (Will get master’s in business )
  • work com… (Will work in company while planning my business)
  • start (Will start my own business when I am ready)
  • Transitions: 10 next because 3 within 10 y (可用y代替 years)

🔹 Sample Answer

In ten years I would like to win an import business of my own. Next year, I will be starting a master’s program in business with a specialization in entrepreneurship. I will be getting this degree because I hope to start my own business and make it successful some day. After I finish my master’s degree three years from now, I will most likely take a position in another company for a few years to make some money and to spend some time planning my own business. Within ten years, I hope to own my own company and be on the way to making it a success.

為了給讀者更多機會練習使用「TST表格」,特提供一下6個問題供大家練習。

  1. Describe a place that you consider to be beautiful. Explain why certain qualities of this place make it beautiful. Include details and examples to support your explanation. )
  1. Some people relax by staying home. Others relax by going out. Which type of relaxation is better for your and why? Include details and examples in your explanation.
  1. Describe an occasion when you were surprised. What happened to you, and why did you feel surprised? Include details and examples in your explanation.
  1. Some students prepare for tests by studying alone. Others prepare for tests by studying with other students or a tutor. Which study method do you think is better, and why? Include details and examples in your explanation.)
  1. What type of home would you like to live in? Describe the characteristics of such a home and explain why you would like to live there. Include details and examples in your explanation.
  1. Some people exercise early in the morning. Others exercise in the afternoon or evening. Which time of day do you think is better for exercising and why? Include details and examples in your explanation.

🔵 Note-taking in the Integrated Tasks

🔷 Reading—Listening—Speaking

第3題和第4題以試題中的閱讀和聽力材料為基礎,要求考生回答相關問題。即Reading-Listening-Speaking,具體步驟是首先要求考生在45秒內閱讀一篇短文,一般只含一個段落,隨後短文隱去,播放一段與短文相關的對話或課堂演講,其長度大約為1分半鐘(比listening section中的材料篇幅要短)。

最後,要求考生根據先前閱讀的短文和所聽到的材料回答相關問題,考生有30秒鐘的準備時間,然後進行60秒鐘的回答。而第5題和第6題要求考生先聽一段聽力材料,然後回答相關問題。即Listening-Speaking,聽力材料通常有一段是情景對話,另一段是課堂演講,其長度大約為1分半鐘。考生有20秒鐘的準備時間,之後進行60秒鐘的回答。在綜合口說任務裡,你所需要記筆記的內容就是在讀短文和聽材料的過程中記下材料中的「main points」、「examples」、「reasons」等等。

而是否能很快識別「信號詞」(Signal Words)成為其中的關鍵。

「信號詞」(Signal Words或Transitions)是我們用來「追蹤」說話人的思路的辭彙,它就像「路標」一樣指引著旅行者的方向。有了信號詞,我們就知道說話人何時要舉例子,何時要下結論,何時要解釋原因等等。

▪ 信號詞識別練習
為了讓大家具有迅速識別信號詞的能力,提供以下兩則練習,大家做這兩則練習時關鍵要在儘量短的時間內完成。

🔶 將下列信號詞添入適當的分類中
as a result、however、most important、in addition、such as、but、for example、similarly、also、for example、differ consequently、therefore、alike、most significant、moreover、just as、especially valuable

Emphasis :
Addition (Continuation):
Comparison:
Contrast:
Illustration (Example):      

🔶 請大家儘快劃出下列短文中的信號詞。
短文後的數位暗示該短文中信號詞的數量。

🔸 One of the most persistent desires of human beings has been to indulge in mood-hanging and pleasure-giving practices. For instance, diverse cultures have engaged in the drinking of alcoholic beverages of all descriptions. But as with most pleasure, overindulgence can be harmful to oneself and others. Also, not everyone agrees that drinking or using other mood modifiers should be an accepted pleasure. (4 signal words)

🔸 Energy is used to cause chemical changes. For example, a chemical change occurs in the electroplating of metals when electrical energy is passed through a salt solution in which the metal is submerged. A chemical change also occurs when radiant energy from the sun is utilized by plants in the process of photosynthesis. Moreover, as we say, a chemical change occurs when heat causes mercuric oxide to decompose. Chemical changes are often used to produce energy rather than new substances. The heat or thrust generated during the combustion of fuels is more important than the products formed. (5 signal words)

🔸 But even those pre-agricultural people who had fairly stationary living sites did not develop in civilizing ways comparable to the farmers. Agriculture probably required a far greater discipline than did any form of food collecting. Seeds had to be planted at certain seasons, some protection had to be given to the growing plants and animals, harvests had to be reaped. stored, and divided.

Thus we might argue that it was neither leisure time nor a sedentary existence that produced great changes in human culture. The cause was rather the more rigorous demands associated with an agricultural way of life. Humanity was changing plants and animals to suit its needs, and living in close relation with plants and animals was changing humans way of life.  (9 signal words)

🔹 (2) 在閱讀(Reading)短文時做筆記
在第3和第4題中你會碰到兩篇閱讀短文,你所需要記筆記的內容就是在讀短文的過程中記下材料中的「main point」以及「examples」和「reasons」等等。切忌寫下過多的細節,或為了記筆記而忽略了中心思想。見下例(注意加黑處的信號詞):

Isaac Asimov
Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) was an amazing author who wrote an astounding amount of material on an even more astounding variety of subjects. His literary studies included line-by-line analyses of all of the play of Shakespeare; his historical research included works on the history of Greece, the Roman Empire, England, and France; he also wrote well-researched tomes on physics, chemistry, and astronomy. What he is most likely best known for today, however, is science fiction: his Foundation series on a galactic empire inspired by Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and the / Robot series about a future society where humans and robots coexist. In total, Asimov wrote more than 500 books on this wide variety of subjects.

▪ 從信號詞我們知道:
TOPIC OF READING PASSAGE: author Isaac Asimov
Main points about Asimov:

  •  wrote a huge amount of material (more than 500 books).
  • wrote on a wide variety of topics (literary analysis, history, physics, chemistry, astronomy, science fiction).

▪ 以下是兩篇閱讀短文,請迅速識別出其信號詞,並做出筆記:
The Dead Sea

The Middle Eastern body of water called Bahr Lut in Arabic is known as the Dead Sea in English. This body of water is said to be “dead" not because it is the dried-out remnant to survive in it. The Dead Sea is a landlocked body of water with the Jordan River as its source and no outlet. Its high salt content, which results from the rapid evaporation due to the area s extremely high temperatures, makes it the saltiest body of water on Earth.

Polling

Polling is, of course, a survey of certain people to find out how they feel about an issue or about a candidate for a government post in an election. Polling involves, simply, asking people how they feel about an issue or a person and them tallying the results. When it is not feasible to contact everyone involved to find out what each person thinks because there are, for example, too many people to contact each one individually, then a representative sample of people can be polled and the results of the representative sample can be attributed to the population as a whole.

🔹 (3) 在聽對話或講座時做筆記(Listening)
在聽講座或對話時,你需要關注主要觀點(major points)以及為了支撐其觀點所使用的例子(examples)原因(causes)

▪  Listening Passage:
(Professor): Now I’m sure you’re all wondering how Asimov managed to write so much. Well, the simple answer’s that he did almost nothing except writing because that’s what he was driven to do.

Asimov’s normal routine was to spend time, a lot of time, writing every day. He usually got up at 6 o’clock in the morning; he was at work writing by 7:30 in the morning, and he wrote until 10 o’clock in the evening. That’s a lot of time to spend writing. This desire to spend so much time writing prompted Asimov himself to say “Writing is my only interest. Even speaking is an interruption."

▪ TOPIC OF LISTENING PASSAGE: how Asimov wrote so much
Main points about topic:

  • Asimov wrote from 7: 30 in the morning to 10 o’clock in the evening.
  • Asimov said,” Writing is my only interest."

    According to the lecture…
    The professor made the point that…
    The reading states that…

🔸 請看以下例子:

例1:Reading  FUNGI AND PLANT DISEASE0

Of all the organisms responsible for diseases in plants, fungi cause the most problems. Although a fungus is technically a small plant, it cannot make its own food and therefore survives by being a parasite-living off other plant hosts. A common fungus, southern blight, affects many vegetables, including tomatoes and potatoes. It appears as a fuzzy white growth on the plant’s stem near soil level. When the plant is infected with the blight, it wilts and then dies. The fungus may spread to the soil, where it can survive for years.

Listening and Speaking

(Narrator)
Now listen to part of a lecture in a botany class.

(Professor)
Of all the organisms responsible for diseases in plants, fungi cause the most problems. Although a fungus is technically a small plant, it cannot make its own food and therefore survives by being a parasite-living off other plant hosts. A common fungus, southern blight, affects many vegetables, including tomatoes and potatoes. It appears as a fuzzy white growth on the plant’s stem near soil level. When the plant is infected with the blight, it wilts and then dies.

The fungus may spread to the soil, where it can survive for years. Because a fungus can survive for years in soil, the best way to control such a disease is to remove and destroy the infected plants, as well as six centimeters of soil around them. Avoid spreading disease by washing off your tools and your shoes when you go from an infected area to a healthy part of your garden. At the end of the gardening season, do a complete cleanup.

You can also keep disease away by rotating crops. Crop rotation can be effective in preventing soil-borne disease, especially when the disease is caused by a fungus that likes specific plants. For example, the fungus that causes southern blight is attracted to tomatoes. Once this fungus is present, it will thrive in the soil from year to year, attacking the tomato plants.

With crop rotation, you don’t grow the same plant in the same place for at least three consecutive years. So, for example, if you grow tomatoes one year, the next year you shouldn’t plant tomatoes in the same place. By planting something else the second and third years, any tomato-loving fungus that survived the winter wouldn’t have any tomato plants to feed on. With three years between planting tomatoes, the fungus will die off from lack of a host plant.

Question (Narrator)
Explain ways that a gardener can control plant disease caused by a fungus, and explain why these methods work.

(Preparation Time : 30 seconds  Response Time: 60 seconds )

Here are two notes that two students took during the sample lecture. Add other words and phrases that you think are important to remember about the lecture.

Student
Student 2

fungus, soil, years
control fungus

destroy plants, soil around
remove 6 cm soil
wash tools, shoes

crop rotation
specific, tomato blight
fungus cause disease
crop rotation
soil-year to year

tomatoes
3 years
don’t plant same place
1 tomato
2 other plants
fungus die off

fungus die, lack host

Response by Student
A gardener can control plant disease caused by a fungus. One way is to destroy sick plants and also destroy the soil around plants. This method works because a fungus lives in the soil. Another way is to wash tools and shoes. This will avoid spreading the disease. Another way is to use crop rotation for a tomato blight. Don’t plant tomatoes in the same place every year. This method works because the fungus will die off. The reason is there are no tomato plants to eat.

Response by Student 2
A fungus kills plants because it lives in the soil. You can control fungus by removing infected plants and six centimeters of the soil. Also, crop rotation can control plant disease caused by a fungus. The fungus lives in soil year to year, so crop rotation is three years. For example, plant tomatoes in the first year. In the second and third year, plant other plants. Crop rotation causes the fungus to die because it lacks a host plant.

兩位學生都較圓滿地完成了任務,不但提供了兩個材料中的相關資訊發展觀點時也使用了適當的細節,而且表達前後連貫一致。聽完這個材料後你所做的筆記應該類似於下面的文字:

例 2:Listening

Woman: Hi, Brett.
Man: Hi, Karen.

Woman: You don’t look too happy, Brett. Is anything the matter?
Man: You can tell I’ m upset just by looking at me?

Woman: Yeah, it’s pretty obvious. You want to tell me what’s bothering you?
Man: Well, it’s that I m having trouble in my economics class, and I just talked to the professor. She didn’t seem too sympathetic.

Woman: She didn’t ? What’s the problem?
Man: Well, it’s that I’m on the baseball team.

Woman: I know. I’ve seen you play. But what does that have to do with your economics class?
Man: It’s the away games. That’s the problem. The away games are all on the weekend, but usually when we’re traveling to another school for a weekend game, we leave on Friday. The team bus usually leaves about noon on Friday.

Woman: And that has something to do with your economics class?
Man: Yeah, my economics class meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, in the afternoon!

Woman: I see. So you miss your economics class once in a while on Friday afternoons?
Man: Not just once in a while. It’s been every Friday for the last four weeks.

Woman: And you talked to your economics professor about this?
Man: Yes, I did. And I told her why I missed class on Fridays.

Woman: But she wasn’t very sympathetic you said.
Man: She wasn’t sympathetic at all.

Woman: I think that’s because you’ve missed so many classes… Listen, have you thought about switching to a different section of the class? I think there’s another section of the same class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Man: I hadn’t thought about that. Maybe that would be something to consider, since my professor’s not at all happy that I miss class so much.

🔸 聽完了這個材料後你所做的筆記應該類似於下面的文字:
TOPIC OF LISTENING PASSAGE: problem man is having with economics class
Main points about problem:

  • Man is missing economics class on Fridays because he is on the baseball team.
  • Woman suggests changing to a different section of economics class that does not meet on Fridays.

🔸 這道題的問題如下:
Question: How does the woman react to the man’s problem?
用以上的筆記,很容易回答這個問題,別忘了使用一些信號詞來組織自己的回答:

Sample Answer:
In this listening passage, two students discuss a problem the man has with his economics class. First, the man explains that he has the problem that he is missing his economics class on Fridays because he is on the baseball team and he travels to away games on Fridays. Then after the woman understands this problem, she suggests that he change to a different section of economics class, one that does not meet on Fridays.

托福口說考試筆記該如何開始做?在托福口說考試要求考生們的能力有許多,其中不可避免地會遇到復述、總結短文或錄音中內容的環節,高效的記筆記就變成了每位元考生不得不鍛煉的一種能力。

大多數考生在記托福口說筆記的過程中會覺得兩個方面難以突破。

  • 第一:書寫內容太多,大多是不實用的資訊,不方便梳理和提取重要資訊。
  • 第二:頁面不夠清晰,相對有些亂,口說表達是思路也隨著潦草的筆記混亂起來。

接下來告訴考生一些托福口說筆記技巧。

超實用托福口說範例&技巧大全

🔵 托福口說做筆記技巧一:記什麼

首先,永久不變的宗旨是,聽都沒聽懂,記什麼記啊!

口譯專家羅贊(Rozan)曾經明確地指出筆記的原則是記錄源語所表達出的意思,而不是僅僅把源語中的單詞羅列在紙上(Note ideas, not words!)。那麼,怎樣來記大意呢?

我們可以把源語中的主題詞、關鍵字以及邏輯線索詞。

其中,主題詞關鍵字常為句子中的主要成分,即主(subject,S)謂(常為謂語動 詞,verb,V)賓(object,O)。所以我們可以把關鍵句中的主語謂語動詞賓語記錄下來。

例如 TPO1 第三題的聽力中有這樣一句話

You didn’t know? An anonymous donor is paying the bill for most of the sculpture.
(你不知道嗎?一位匿名的捐贈者將負責這 尊雕像的大部分費用。)

我們聽到這句話後需要記錄的內容為「An anonymous donor pay the bill (sculpture)」,甚至這裡的bill 都可以用符號表示,其實就是金錢唄,可以用¥$等等來表示。說到金錢符號,符號的記錄也是有很多技巧的,我們還需要記錄一些包括數位、專有名詞這樣的資訊。

如 TPO2 第五題中, 女學生和教授在討論他們的出行計畫和另一位教授的布展計畫時,分別談到了出行所需時 間「a 3 day trip」、布展時間「spend next week」、出行日期等資訊「we don’t leave until Wednesday」。這些都是重要的資訊,需要記錄下來。

總之,怎麼簡單,怎麼節省時間,就怎麼去記,但是前提是必須得聽懂,而且回頭看筆記也得看懂。

🔵 托福口說筆記做技巧二:怎麼記

解答了「托福口說筆記記什麼」的問題,接下來老師教大家托福口說筆記應該怎麼記。其實,考生在記筆記過程中經常發現兩個問題:

  • 第一,書寫內容太多,並不方便記錄。
  • 第二,頁面不夠清晰,相對有些亂。

那麼怎樣才能解決這兩個問題呢?首先,可以通過縮略書寫的技巧解決第一個問題;其次,可以通過設計筆記排列方式來解決第二個問題。這些就是通常情況下說的口譯筆記小技巧了,而這些技巧對於考生來說可能會有很大幫助。

超實用托福口說範例&技巧大全

🔵 托福口說做筆記技巧三:縮略書寫

🔷 縮略
縮略書寫就是用儘量少的字元來表達源語的含義。這個概念,考生應該都不會太陌生。 為什麼這麼說呢,來看這幾個例子:
① Uni., Dep.
② BTW, ASAP, PS
③ BJ, SH

上面這些東西都是什麼意思?我想大部分考生都明白:

① 大學(university);系、學院(department)
② 順帶一提(by the way);儘快(as soon as possible);附言(postscript)
③ 北京(Beijing);上海(Shanghai)

這些就是縮略書寫最為常見和廣泛應用的例子,被稱為縮略(abbreviation)。在遇到一個超過 5 個字母的單詞時,我們用這個單詞中的某幾個字元(一般不超過 4 個)來代 替這個單詞,就是我們要強調縮略的概念。

經過縮略,上面 TPO例子中的筆記可以為: ano. donor pay scul.。

考生可以在備考的時候,留意考試時的高頻詞,並聯繫使用縮略的方法來記筆記。
例如:

professor →prof. programme → prog. assignment → asg.
including → inc. excluding → exc. reason → R.
because →bec. possible → psb problem → prob.
solution → Sl. conception → conc. definition → def.
example →eg science → sci. computer → pc
schedule → schd conflict → conf.

這些縮略可能會因人而異, 希望考生自己在備考過程中留意總結,熟練使用自己的縮略方式。但是建議大家記下相應單詞的輔音字母而不是記下這個單詞的前幾個字母。

🔷 符號
除了用縮略的方式來減少筆頭上的工作量之外,考生還可以在筆記的過程中運用符號(symbol)來幫助記錄。對於這個概念,考生應該更為熟悉,來看這幾個例子,當然還有一些簡單的數學符號:

  1. + (加、還有、包括、和、以及) (減、沒有、除去、不包括)
  2. × (乘、也可以表示錯誤、不同意、行不通等含義)÷ (除)
  3. = (等於) (約等於、與„„類似)
  4. (不等於) (全等於)
  5. > (大於、優於、超過、重要于、優先於)< (小於、劣於、少於、比不上)
  6. (因為、由於、原因) (所以、於是) (成比例)
  7. (上升、增多、加強) (下降、減少、削弱)
  8. (逐漸上升、逐漸增多、逐漸加強) (逐漸下降、逐漸減少、逐漸削弱)

像這些數學符號、標點符號、其他常用的科學符號甚至是考生自己管用的筆記符號都可以拿來代替一些單詞或片語。例如,考生可以用標點符號中的冒號來表明 「某人、某機構說了什麼或發佈了什麼聲明」。

🔵 托福口說做筆記技巧四:筆記排列方式

有一些托福考場分發的草稿紙是豎向折疊的A4紙,這種紙張很方便與豎向記筆記,而且節省空間。建議大家講對折後的A4紙橫向放,形成一個橫向的長條,然後豎向縮寫。

由於符號本身就會讓格式看上去不整齊,所以各位考生用符號記筆記的時候一定要注意筆記的排列方式,否則,很容易使自己的筆記看起來像一團亂麻,理不清條理。

🔷 我們在記筆記的時候應該注意三個方面:

  1. 豎向書寫。
  2. 縮進書寫。
  3. 區分邏輯線錯詞相應內容。

豎向書寫就是指一行內只有一個意群的內容,如果這個意群結束了,就要另起一行記錄新的意群中的內容。

  • 提示3:大膽運用所掌握的辭彙,不要過分拘泥於語法。

托福口辭彙 多練是硬道理!

 辭彙是托福考試匯總最基本也是最重要的,但是不同的單項辭彙的積累方法是不同的,對於托福口說部分,多多練習才是硬道理!下面,天道小編給大家介紹相關內容,供大家參考。

托福口說根本是考我們能否運用英語有效地溝通交流的能力,最重要的就是我們能夠把自己的想法運用英語流利無誤地表達出來。托福口說強調對於已給材料的處理以及總結轉述等綜合能力。所以可見托福口說需要考生能夠把獲取的資訊、自己的想法表達出來。

在我們英語表述當中,很多人不會的無非就是兩大塊問題:辭彙 + 語法

辭彙量的缺乏肯定會導致你語言表述不出來或是不準確,再或者較為簡單單調。語法掌 握不好會引起病句或根本無法連詞成句的情況。所以我們在平時要想提高英語,尤其是想要提高托福考試的應試能力,不管對於托福考試的哪一個單項,辭彙+語法 都是最基本的,也是最重要的。

很多同學都已經意識到了辭彙量的重要性,平時也都有背單詞的習慣,但是你們背單詞的方法真的對了嘛?真的適用於托福口說的學習嗎?大多數同學背單詞都是拿著本單字書,看英文把托福口說辭彙的中文意思記住就可以了,每天背上個50、80個都有,確實這種方法對於做閱讀看文章比較有效。可是對於托福口說, 就不那麼適用了。因為托福口說你是要會把這些單詞給用上的,要能夠說得出帶進一個語境當中的

所以在背口說單詞時,可以不用先急著追求量,一天就背 20個單詞。但是這20個單詞,一定要記住它的發音、詞性、搭配、用法等,去看看例句結合著一定的語境記憶。等到你能夠真正看著中文能夠用它造一句話這個 單詞才叫做會背了。是不是挺麻煩呢?但是沒辦法,如果你一直只看英文記中文你永遠也不會把這個單詞用上去。

突破托福口考試全攻略

托福口說被大家視為最大出國難關,原因大致有三:

  1. 從小到大英語課上幾乎都沒有針對口說進行過練習,說不出來。
  2. 不知道自己發音、語言是不是道地,沒有信心。
  3. 面對電腦感覺很奇怪,會很緊張。

首先要認識到,其實托福口說考試是和聽力一樣,在大家出國後的日常生活中用處最大,最重要。相對來講單純的口說比其他部分簡單很多,這就是為什麼ETS要在口說部分融入閱讀和聽力。大家大可不必那麼緊張口說,試想如果那些題是讓你寫出來而不是說出來,你還會覺得有這麼難麼?關鍵還是在於心態,突破了心理障礙,口說能力就已經能上一個大臺階了。

英語就是一個交流工具,就像我們平時交流說中文一樣,老外說的是英文,就這麼點區別。所以,就算在考場上,也全當是和一個老外探討一下問題,不要太緊張。其次,很多同學的發音不太標準,這可能和大家自身的口音有關,也不是什麼大問題。最簡單的方法就是跟讀

你可以挑選一些美國電視劇、電影什麼的,跟著演員一句一句的鸚鵡學舌,他怎麼說你就怎麼學。在美國,專業演員都是經過特殊發音學習的,由專業老師指導他們糾正口音。你看,老外也有口音問題,你還那麼在意自己的語音毛病麼?但是要注意一點,別選一些太老舊的片子,也別選什麼西部片鄉村片,最好挑以大都市生活或者校園生活為題材的片子,要不學了半天滿嘴稀奇古怪的美國口音也不太好。

第三點,也是大家都很容易拿不准的一點,是關於托福的機考形式對口說的影響。有的同學一面對電腦就不自覺地緊張,說都不會話了。對這一點,其實電腦後面也是有個人在聽你說話,你可以在演講時當聽眾是白菜,為什麼不能當電腦是個人呢?的確,忘掉那是台電腦吧,那樣你一定能發揮出更好的水準的。

關於托福口說,大家一定要謹記一點,口說是與人交流的工具,一定要在備考時儘量多的和別人互相交流溝通。就像開車,只要熟練了就會變得像是自然而然的事情,多說多練,到一定階段你腦子裡想的話自然就從嘴裡蹦出來了!

最後祝大家考試順利,早日成才。
