考场如战场 小心新托福阅读中的“绊马索”

       在新托福考试中,很多考生最容易忽略的就是阅读,因为在跟各种英语考试的过招中,绝大部分人会感觉阅读是自己的强项。然而这种认知不一定准确,在我们的培训当中,发现不少这样的学员,自认为阅读不错,实际考出来的分数只有22分左右,甚至会更低。ETS对阅读高水平(High level)的评定标准是22-30分。而事实上,阅读如果达不到25分以上,总分想要过百会比较困难,因为这相当于把挣分的压力转移到了大部分人比较弱的听力、口语、写作上面。由此可见,阅读取得高分对于获得百分以上的托福成绩是一种保证。

       那么为什么很多自认为阅读不错的考生不一定能在这一部分熠熠生辉呢?这是因为新托福阅读考试存在一些“绊马索”。

      “绊马索”一:细节题考查精确定位。托福阅读中的细节题其实不难,但前提是定位的点要对。比如下面这个例题:

Two species of deer have been prevalent in the Puget Sound area of Washington State in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The black-tailed deer, a lowland, west-side cousin of the mule deer of eastern Washington, is now the most common. The other species, the Columbian white-tailed deer, in earlier times was common in the open prairie country, it is now restricted to the low, marshy islands and flood plains along the lower Columbia River.

According to paragraph 1, which of the following is true of the white-tailed deer of Puget Sound?

A. It is native to lowlands and marshes.

B. It is more closely related to the mule deer of eastern Washington than to other types of deer.

C. It has replaced the black-tailed deer in the open prairie.

D. It no longer lives in a particular type of habitat that it once occupied.
