2018年7月【托福口說】考題預測、6月考情分析

3選1題型從從5月到6月雖然有出現,但頻率變的比較低,只出現了兩次。Task 3 主要為summarize 聽力和閱讀的重點,擷取聽力和閱讀重點加以summarize即可。但Task 5則是口說偏難的題目,要歷經3步驟:先summarize再做出選擇,最後再講原因。以下文章幫同學們將重點劃出,並提供高分應答範本。

托福口說獨立型題目:優缺點比較題型出現類似GRE題目


從「題型問法」中我們看到,Task 1 只出現「建議類」和「開放觀點類」題型。Task 2 則是除了「是非類」之外還意外出現了「三選一」。至於主題方面,從題目總表我們發現,本月還是以「校園」和「生活相關」為主。

107/6/2 托福考試中Task 1以類似GRE的題目出現優缺點比較題型。注意下面題目中"at least one"若題目指要求提出"至少1個"優缺點,千萬要提到2-3個才能拿高分。以下提供優缺點比較題型應答範本,裡面優缺點各提供了3個要點。


2018/6/02 Task 1 口說考題優缺點比較題型應答範本


Instead of printing books in paper version, the university decides to release only online version of textbooks. Discuss at least one advantage and disadvantage of this change. [compare and contrast]

As the world is going digitalized at a phenomenal speed, textbooks in university may also go completely online. This, however, could both be a boon and a bane. This practice certainly suggests a range of advantages: it is convenient, portable, at students’ disposal whenever and wherever they want to use the online resources. Digitalized books are also nature-friendly, saving much paper and chemical ink for publication. Being digitalized also means the ease to be stored, shared, and edited for other academic purposes—such as dissertation citations. Being only available online, however, speaks of some downsides. While not everyone gets used to reading on the screen, some groups are not provided with electronic devices or broad band services at home so that reviewing textbooks will be troublesome. Most importantly, as students can only access the information through computers or smartphones, they could be subjected to myopia or other concerns.

因為優缺點各要提到2-3點,速度要快,第句即點明立場。答題範本內 代表優點; 代表缺點。




托福口說整合型題目:新題出現幅度增加

Task 3 + Task 5:校園場景相關

task3聽力觀點
task3閱讀主題
task5主題

Task 3聽力出現100%全面支持觀點的現象。Task 5主題為金錢困難、時間衝突和人際關係各出現了一次。2018年5月【托福口說】考題預測、4月考情分析提過針對「同意觀點」的題目,因為聽力部分不會花太多時間重覆閱讀中已經給出的原因,反而用來佐證閱讀觀點的細節量和新資訊相對較多。所以回答第3題的題型遇到同意觀點時要避免重複,而是增加細節或資訊來豐富內容。

2018/6/02 Task 3 口說考題作答範本

The reading passage discusses the school’s new policy on orientation for new students. Unlike the past policy, they plan to hold not one but several orientation projects to help freshmen better blend in with the new environment because it allows newcomers more flexibility in participation while the size of the groups will be smaller, making participants closer. The speaker gives much credit to this policy change, and uses herself as the example because her freshmen orientation last year was in conflict with her family trip. With this policy, students will be able to arrange their own activities while still being able to join the orientation. Besides, the speakers also mentions her friend, who once organized an orientation with fewer participants; her example illustrates a small group does help develop a closer bond through some interesting activities during the orientation.

[The reading passage discusses……making participants closer.]為閱讀,裡面說明了2個學校要增加新生活動次數的理由,其它部分則為聽力裡面同意其觀點的資訊。

1. Summarize
2-3句
2. 做出選擇
1句
3. 說明原因
1-2句

Task 5是口說裡面偏難的題目,要歷經3步驟:要先summarize再做出選擇,最後再講原因。Task 5範文標註的數字符號① ② ③ 對應下方三步驟的順序。

2018/6/02 Task 5 口說考題作答範本

① According to the passage, the man is facing a dilemma over whether he should go home and change the shirt stained by ketchup or should go to an important presentation by wearing the T-shirt under the stained shirt. If the chooses the former, he will appear more formal for the occasion, but he needs some time rehearsing the presentation. As an alternative, he could wear the sporty T-shirt for the presentation and still have the time to do rehearsal, yet the garment could be a minus for the job. ② Were I in this situation, my choice would certainly be the latter for two obvious reasons: first, what account for the success of presentation are the contents and ways of delivering it rather than what the presenter wears. And second, the garment issue is easy to fix; he could borrow a jacket to cover the stain, or simply borrow a shirt from classmates so it will not be a problem to worry about.

Task 4 + Task 6:學術場景相關

Task4 task4心理學
Task6 task6生物學

6月份Task 4的主題全數為「心理學」,而Task 6的部分則全部是「生物學」。比較值得一提的是6月份Task 4出現新題,以下為各位同學準備新題作答範本。

2018/6/2 Task 4 口說考題作答範本

The passage introduces the idea “sensation transference.” This idea is actually a business term, suggesting when people are purchasing products, the external packaging will affect how buyers think about the contents inside. To illustrate this concept, the speaker uses an experiment conducted by a food company selling tin can food as the example. In the supermarket, the company displays the food along with the can itself while the same food put in glass jars is also available on the racks. The results suggest more customers are prone to buy the latter and even believe they are more delicious though the food is the same—probably because the food is put in a way resembling how people serve food at home


Task 4的重點在聽力,聽力內容裡會使用一個例子[To illustrate this…開始]來闡述[The passage introduces the idea……contents inside.]部份閱讀的論點。新題容易再出現的機率很高,請同學們特別留意。
