2018年6月【托福寫作】考題預測、5月考情分析

托福全區考場近期的寫作考題,新題僅佔不到25%。5月份的寫作題目中只出現一道新題,但仔細端倪這新題也僅是用之前舊題來改寫,由此可見練習托福TPO寫作題目真的很重要。

托福獨立型寫作:千萬不要漏掉creative重要元素


5月份托福獨立型寫作考題為同學們用「主題」、「重複出現日期」和「考試題型」分類整理如下:

2018/5/26獨立題型

When you need to complete a creative task, do you prefer to work together with others or do it alone? 寫作答題的時候千萬不要漏掉creative這個重要的元素,若僅僅回答完成一個task的時候想要work together或do it alone是會失分的,所以在看題目的時候要特別小心。

work together (group) 和 alone 兩邊語料探討:

group

  • brainstorm; be inspired by others
  • using others’ opinion as the basis to modify the work/idea
  • split the workload—easier—efficiency

alone

  • traditional: more opinion/inspire—copy others; far from being creative
  • traditional: opinion pool as the basis—too many and conflicting; disorientation; more time-consuming
  • traditional: split; hold uniqueness; thrives on elaboration

2018/5/26獨立題型中譯

當你需要完成一個具有創意的任務,你會選擇和其他人一同完成或是獨力完成?通常遇到這樣的題目大部分通常會選團體作業,但批改作文的托福考官看了數以千計相似的團體作業論點後可能也已經疲乏,以下是大神挑戰傳統寫法給大家參考。

完整發展段

It is said tackling a creative task with a group suggests more sparks of inspiration. It must be noticed, however, that although group members could shower ideas on the work to be pursued, the result could lead participants to copy from each other and end up without nothing inspiring but a patchwork; it will not shine with creativity. By contrast, doing a task alone take greater advantage of their own sources of inspiration. whether it is designing an advertising slogan, chic accessories or on-campus posters, those who do tasks alone could rely on personal experiences, consult related reference books or exploit all the trials and errors when doing the tasks independently without being influenced by the myriad and conflicting options from other group members.

脈絡解析:先提到通常既定印象為團體作業會創造更多的發想火花,再舉例說明其缺點,後續再提出獨立作業的優勢。


托福整合型寫作:「生物類」題型占比大


在5月份的整合型寫作方面,題目的主題只有兩種,分別為「生物類」佔75% 和「歷史類」佔25%,生物主題依然是整合型寫作的最愛。針對內容類型來做分析的話則也是2種,比例各半;分別為「可行性分析」和「原因分析」兩種。
