托福独立口语中你可以用的万能理由

2017-05-05编辑: 长安来自: 环球教育

  近些年来,中国考生在托福独立口语部分的得分普遍偏低,鲜见“Good”档次。究其原因,除了语音语调、词汇语法的问题外,内容信息不足和逻辑缺失也很明显;尤其对于思维局限和语言水平不高的同学们来说,要在15秒内想到两个适用的理由和正确的表达尤为困难。

  在此篇文章,环球教育徐品品老师就先来介绍两个好用的万能理由及其在具体考题中的使用。


  1.to relax

  常用词汇及短语:pressure,stress,tension,release,stressed,stressful,study,academic,work,part-time,full-time,to take a break,to refresh one's mind etc.

  例题1:What is your favorite activity to do in the weekend? Give reasons to explain your answer.

  思路:比如我们说最喜欢运动(doing sports),可以用的一个原因就是“运动使我放松”,因为周中的学习已经积累了很多压力,周末和朋友们打篮球或踢足球可以很好地释放那些压力。

  这条理由就可以这样说:

  Sports can help me relax a lot. You see, I have already been very stressful from my academic study during the weekdays, so playing basketball or soccer with my friends on Saturdays or Sundays can effectively release my pressure.

  例题2:Some universities require students to take PE classes. Others don't have this requirement. Which do you agree with and why?

  思路:选择大学应该要求学生们上体育课,逻辑与上题接近:

  University students can totally relax themselves in PE classes. They have already been tired from their academic study, so having some exercise like running or swimming can help them refresh their minds and release their pressure.

  例题3:Which trait of you do your friends like the best: Kindness, cheerfulness or intelligence?

  思路:这是一道考过的的三选一的task 1,直接选不太好说,但我们可以从理由入手,哪一种性格特点可以使朋友们 "relax",选择就呼之欲出了:

  My cheerfulness always relaxes my friends. When they are tired from work or have some arguments with each other, my funny jokes and positive attitude can greatly release their stress and get rid of their tension.

  2.to broaden one's horizon

  常用词汇及短语:scenery,communicate,news updates,culture,tradition,to connect with the world etc.

  例题1:What is your favorite activity to do in the weekend? Give reasons to explain your answer.

  思路:上面出现了的一道题,我们从“开阔视野”的角度出发,可以想到“读万卷书,行万里路”类的活动,比如旅行(travelling);因为看到不同的风景以及和不同地区的人交流,可以领略更多的风土人情:

  Travelling makes me broaden my horizon. After seeing a variety of sceneries, I am amazed by the wonderfulness of the world; and by communicating with local citizens in different places, I have more understanding about their cultures and traditions.

  例题2:Some people believe that television has had a positive influence on society. Others believe it has had a negative influence on society. Which do you agree with and why?

  思路:如果我们想用这一条理由,可以选择支持电视对社会有积极影响:

  Television can help people broaden their horizons. Normally people don't have time or money to travel all the time; however, they can always learn something about other cultures or receive news updates from the other side of the globe on TV.

  例题3:If you are about to make a donation to a community, which one would you prefer: city library, animal rescue center or environmental organization?

  思路:也是一道考过的三选一题目,从“开拓人们视野”的角度出发,可以选择给图书馆捐钱;图书馆可以用这笔钱引进更多人类进步的阶梯,自然可以达成这一目标:

  Right now in our city library, the most common collections for teenagers are textbooks and references. With more money, I'd like it to have more novels and biographies because they can help the young adults broaden their horizons and it will be beneficial for their growth.
