托福口语话题地点类必备 更新日期:2016-04-08 编辑:iyuba

托福口语备考最重要的是段子准备和语料库储备,今天爱语吧托福网给大家总结了托福口语必备话题之地点类。

托福口语评分标准中出了natural、spontaneous、improvised等类似的字眼,译为自然即兴的,也就是说rater评分者更希望看到 考生即兴的发挥而不是死板机械的背诵;但是如果考生平时不积累一些相关语料库想必也不会达到信手拈来的地步,为此笔者给大家带来一系列托福独立口语部分中 的常见话题语料库,希望大家在背诵的基础上把题目回答的更自然。

  本文给考生带来的是地点语料库。常见题目如你最想去的地方,你所在城 市的景点,想跟朋友一起去的地方;当然也会有这样的题目:你是喜欢在大城市读大学还是喜欢在小镇上读大学。乍一看这个题跟地点没有关系,如果我稍加变通就 可以用很多跟大城市相关的语料,如果选择在大城市上学的话,生活更方便如可以去fancy restaurant, bars, shopping malls, coffee shops, bookstores等等而在这些地方我们都可以接触很多人,继而可以用如下的语料:meet new people, make new friends,broaden your horizon, get to know local cultures and customs, enrich your experience等等。试看以下关于地点的真题:

  Describe a place that you like best in your city. Please state why you like it with specific examples and details.

  When you are together with your friends, which place would you like to go?

Explain why.

  Describe a public area that you visit frequently. Please state why you visit it

frequently and include specific examples and details in your explanation.

  Some students prefer to choose universities located in big cities. Others would like

to study in universities located in small towns. Please state your opinion and explain

why.

  When travelling, some people prefer to reach the destination directly. Some

others prefer to stop and look around the scenery along the way. What kind of way of

travelling do you think is better and why?

  如果仔细分析以上题目的话不难发现都跟地点息息相关,当然每道题目也有细微的差别,这就需要考生认真分析,更有针对性的利用语料库回答以免跑题。
