托福口语第三题作为综合任务的第一道题目,在口语考试中的意义比较重大。本文中,我们将对TPO30的一道例题进行解析。

 

 

我们先来看一下阅读部分:

 

Campus construction should happen during summer

I’ve noticed that small construction projects on campus like fixing sidewalks and parking lots often take place during the regular school year when classes are in session. I propose that whenever possible the university should schedule such construction projects to take place during the three-month summer break. One reason is that construction projects can be so disruptive; they create inconveniences and can make it hard to get where you need to go on campus. And, second, construction projects would be more likely to be completed quickly if they were scheduled for the summer when the weather is usually good.

Sincerely

Eric Hughes

 

 

首先,考生需要用45秒的时间把这篇小的阅读文章看完。那么我们一起来看一下这篇文章。我们看到标题Campus construction should happen during summer我们就大概知道了这次的主题是关于学校教学楼的建设时间问题。然后我们继续往下看,第一句我们就可以知道的重要信息点是什么呢?就是这个资料的撰写人是一个学生,而不是学校。

 

这是一个很小的细节,但是却很重要,因为这直接影响到我们第一句话的开头,这决定了我们开头是说The school is going to XXX还是a proposal from a student suggested that school should XXX。然后第一句话就陈述了现在的困境,就是学校老是在学生上课的时候建造东西,言下之意是这样非常烦人。第二句话讲了他更偏爱的计划,就是可以在暑假三个月的假期里修建这些建筑,这句话我们应该把它记下来。然后第三句话的开头说one reason, 显然这是一个理由,非常重要,这个时候我们就要开始记笔记了,就是它非常disruptive。然后看到第四句话,说了第二个理由,就是夏天天气非常好。

 

所以整篇阅读我们不需要也不可能记很多信息,最重要的信息就是学生建议学校在暑假而不是平时上课时建造东西。有两个理由,第一个是它十分打扰学生正常学习;第二个是在暑假建造天气更好。

 

下面,我们就来看看听力文本:

 

 

Now listen to two students discussing the letter.

(man) So, Jane, what do you think of Eric’s proposal?

(woman) I’m all for it.

(man) So you think it’s true? What he says about the problems about the way it’s being done?

(woman) Yeah, I do. Take his first reason. Like, I know you don’t drive, but I do drive here every day, so I need a place to park my car. And remember last year when they decided to repair some of the parking lots?

(man) Oh yeah, I remember that, there was a lot of work going on, wasn't there? Starting in December.

(woman) Right, at least four lots were closed, and that meant there weren't enough parking spots for students and professor’s cars. Usually had to circle around looking for parking on one of the streets. And then walk from the street all the way to my classes.

(man) That’s annoying.

(woman) Yeah, and it happened to a lot of other people in my classes too! People were always arriving late because of the trouble they had parking. Sometimes even my professors were late.

(man) Yeah.

(woman) And also, his second point? That makes sense too. I mean, for instance, part of the reason those parking lot repairs last year took so long was because of the big snowstorms. They had to keep stopping, sometimes for a week or two at a time, because of snow and ice on the ground.

(man) Yeah, I remember that, we had a bunch of snowstorms in a row last year.

(woman) Yeah, so with all that starting and stopping cause of the weather, the problem took them a lot longer to finish.

 

 

 

以上就是TPO30 Task 3的听力文本。因为之前已经看过了阅读,所以对听力是可以做出一个预判的,讲的东西肯定和阅读比较类似,无非就是态度是支持还是反对。通常态度在听力的开头就可以听出来了。从女学生说I’m all for it以及下面男生问她真的吗,她说真的,我们就可以确定学生是支持这个proposal的。

 

那么我们此时就应该能判断出来女学生待会儿听力应该会强调阅读中的两个理由,并且给出自己的例子来证明。第一个理由,说平时在校园搞建筑非常扰人。然后女生就说了去年12月份停车场的事情,4个停车场被关闭,导致停车异常困难,学生甚至教授都迟到了。第二个理由是阅读里说夏天天气好,适合修建。然后学生肯定是支持的,她说去年由于好几场非常大的暴风雪,导致施工不得不延期,导致修建时间被拉长很多,很不方便。

 

那么,以下就是这道题的一个参考答案:

 

 

A student called Eric proposes that university should schedule construction projects to take place during the summer break. First of all, construction in regular year creates inconveniences for everyone, it’s very disruptive. What’s more, this construction could be completed quickly in summer when the weather is usually good. The woman in the conversation totally supports it. Because last December when the parking lot was repaired, parking were really inconvenient ,like most students including her and teachers who drive to campus needed to park cars on streets and walk to classes which made them late for class. Also the reason why the lots repairing took too long was there were bunches of snow storms which caused the projects kept stopping from time to time.

 

 

以上就是对TPO30 Task 3的解析。通过大量的做题我们可以发现,Task 3还是非常容易拿的,因为阅读比较简单,通常就是学校要干一件什么事情,以及两个理由,很容易看懂。然后听力里又会再重复说出学生的态度以及用具体的例子来阐述它们。
