2018-09-04

  PTE考试中的题型各有各的特色,考察的技巧点与难点也不尽相同。那么该如何去准备,或许是很多考生复习时候都会纠结过的问题。

  有很多的同学在准备PTE的时候一定有这样的困惑:准备了很久,但是还是没有抓到答题的精髓,或者说这道题知道怎么回答,但是换一道题就不知道了。那究竟怎么才能真正入门,让考试变得简单。碰到任何类型的题目都能对答如流呢?

  准备参加PTE考试的考生们,你们准备得如何了?你对PTE考试有深入的了解吗?小编会经常为大家带来关于考试得相关内容,让你的考试变的不那么难。希望备考PTE的考生或者想在以后参加考试的考生认真阅读,希望可以给大家的PTE备考带来帮助!

  有很多最近考PTE的小伙伴都表示有新题加入,就连一向题库稳定的SWT也增加了新的题目,今天带给大家一道最近常考的高频题“read your writing aloud”。

  乍一看这标题还以为是口语当中的read aloud呢!

  这一篇文章一共三百个多个字,很多同学看到这么多字便慌了,一看又是新题,心里想着十分钟内无法完成。但是冷静下来你会发现其实这三百多个字被清楚地分为了四段,其实英语文章分段和我们高中时写的语文作文是遵循同一个规律,你有且仅有在想表达两个不同意思或者观点的时候你会分段。


还在为SWT新题而发愁吗?


  那么既然这篇文章被分为了四段,作者就大概想要借这四段话表达四个观点,即四个得分点。

  所以以后看到这种长的头皮发麻的文章,第一步就是把长的文章分成一个个小段来作答。

  It might seem a little eccentric, but reviewing your work by reading it aloud can help to identify the woolliest areas. This works best if you perform your reading in a theatrical way, pausing at the commas and ends of sentences. If you run out of breath during a sentence, it is probably too long. You ought to be able to convert your writing into a speech in this way – if it sounds too stilted and convoluted, perhaps you could rework these parts until they sound fluid.

  看似笔者用词花里胡哨,但是记住你只要主旨,其他都是辅助你写句子的工具。

  那么这段话的主旨是什么? 是Reviewing your work by reading it aloud can help to identify the woolliest areas,那么中文翻译便是“在检查你写的文章的时候,大声的朗读能够有效的发现你写的不好的地方”,那么剩下你要做的就是把这样一句中文翻译成英文就好了。

  那么有些同学可能会问,这段后面还说了句子太长怎么怎么样,要让你的文章和朗读的节奏保持一致,这些信息点就不写了么? 我的回答是你可以写,但是你的字数将会超过75个字,而且SWT考的就是总结归纳能力,你把信息点全写上了就应该叫“LAA”了,即“LIST ALL ASPECTS”了。

  那么这一段的答案很简单:Reading your writing aloud while reviewing can effectively help to spot the sentence that does not flow smoothly.

  It’s unlikely that your reader will be fooled by the idea that long words make you sound clever. Cluttering a sentence with too many complicated words can prevent its meaning from being understood at all. A short word is always preferable to a long one. Why should anyone choose the word ‘erroneous’ over the word ‘wrong’ in an essay? Usually writers who employ more obscure words are trying to sound impressive, but can appear pretentious. Direct words enable you to control what you are saying, and are not necessarily babyish, but the most appropriate ones for the job.

  这段的中文翻译为:过多的使用生僻的词汇不仅不能给你的文章加分,相反,读者更喜欢简单易懂的单词

  这段话挺讽刺的,作者不要让我们写作花里胡哨,结果自己在那里花里胡哨了半天。。。各种秀自己的英文词汇。。。

  英文翻译:most readers prefer short words to long ones as shorter words make the writing more easier to read.

  When you read your writing aloud, you will notice that the key stress comes at the end of your sentence. It is therefore most effective to end with a short and emphatic word to secure your point. Try to resist the impulse to waffle at the end of your sentence by trailing off into qualifying clauses. It might be worth relocating the clause to the beginning of the sentence or losing it altogether if you feel that it adds little to its meaning.

  这段话读完之后你用中文翻译出来的意思可能跟之前较为相近,即在你句子的结尾处,尽量精炼,不要试图添加意义不大的字句。

  那么这一段虽然作者将其划分为一个段落,但是可以明显的感觉到第二和第三段是在表达同一个意思,就是写文章不要太啰嗦:most readers prefer short words to long ones as shorter words make the writing more easier to read,so try to end your sentences by simple phrases or words rather than meaningless clauses.

  Your sentences might be the most grammatically perfect in the world, but still cause your writing to sound wrong if you have misjudged its tone. A colloquial style, which uses slang and exclamations, is an inappropriately chatty tone for an essay. However, style can be equally jarring if your vocabulary is too formal or ambitious for its context. It is much more impressive to make complicated points using simple language and grammar.

  文章中文大意:即使你的语法非常完美,但是太formal和太chatty都会是你的文章看起来不搭调。

  英文翻译:Inappropriate use of vocabulary and one would make your writing sound wrong even with perfect grammar, suggesting that simple language and grammar should be used.

  四段的工作都完成之后,接下来你只要用简单的连词把他们都连接起来就好啦!

  完整参考答案:

  Reading aloud while reviewing writing helps to spot the sentence that does not flow smoothly because most readers prefer short words and simple phrases to long ones as shorter words make the writing easier to read;inappropriate use of vocabulary would make your writing sounds wrong even with perfect grammar, suggesting that simple language and grammar should be used.
