托福TPO与原题的差距是什么

2018-10-31 15:56:11来源:新东方

  在备考托福的路上,大家最不陌生的就是TPO(TOEFL Practice Online),那是托福朝圣路上圣经一般的存在。可是,那些备考时间越久的人心里越是容易产生一个疑问:TPO跟考试的关系真的很大吗?

  来源:新东方 钟萍

  其实,我非常理解大家的功利心,但是TOEFL毕竟是一门语言能力测试(a language proficiency test)。

  所以,大家还是尽早断了考到TPO原题的念头。

  可这样的话,TPO在备考过程中到底发挥了什么样的作用呢?

  接下来,我们不妨一起看一下2018年10月13日托福口语TASK 6的真题回忆:

  Task 6

  对于部分海生动物来说,潮退或低潮时沙滩很干,它们容易遇到“身体缺水”的情况。为了生存,它们会进化出特殊的适应能力。

  1/蛤蜊有壳,在外部很干的情况下,它们可以选择闭合自己的壳来避免水分流失,从而保持自身水分;

  2/太阳高挂的时候,沙滩很干,螃蟹可以钻到沙子里,由于沙子有一定湿度,它们可以避免高温保持湿度或者从中汲取水分。

  接下来,我们再来看一下TPO 36托福口语TASK 6的听力原文本:

  So… ah… we know animals in many climates have to develop strategies, uh ways to protect themselves when the weather becomes especially hot and dry in the summers. Let’s start talking about how one small animal—a snail—can do this. Now, as you know, a snail is a very small creature, with a soft, moist body, most of which is protected by a hard shell. A snail is a good example of an animal that has developed certain strategies for coping with high temperatures and drought, or lack of water.

  First, to avoid the heat. When the sun comes out, snails move into the shelter of vegetation, uh, you know, plants or leaves, to get out of the sun and into the shade. Now of course, the ground can become very hot in the sun; it absorbs and radiates heat, so snails will move up off the ground to places where it is cooler. They may attach themselves to a wall, um, or a tree where it is cooler than on the ground.

  Now, it’s not just heat that snails need to worry about. They also need to avoid drying out due to lack of water, so during a really warm, dry day or during the summer months, snails secrete a sticky, slimy substance, um, made of, ah calcium, and it covers the opening of their shell, um, covers and closes it up. This keeps the moisture inside the shell, and prevents the snails from drying out. Snails can stay inside their shells closed up like this for a long time, even several months if it’s a really dry summer. Their bodies, well, everything slows down and so they don’t need food, they can survive on what food they’ve stored up, but, when it rains and water is available again, the snail opens up its shell to get some.

  通过对比,我们能够发现,虽然两道题并非完全一致,却也“八九不离十”。试想,我们要是在考前通过TPO 36-6积累了如下表达:

  develop certain strategies or ways to protect themselves when the weather becomes especially hot and dry

  lack of water

  to avoid the heat

  the ground can become very hot in the sun

  move into the shelter to get out of the sun

  cover the opening of shell, covers and closes it up

  keep the moisture inside the shell and prevent the snail from drying out”

  那么,18年10月13日托福口语TASK 6的考试过程中,听力和口语答题部分的压力将会小之又小。

  最后,我们又回到了文章开头那2个问题:

  1/TPO跟考试的关系真的很大吗?

  2/TPO在备考过程中到底发挥了什么样的作用呢?

  相信在读完本文后,各位看官应该可以自信得出或认同以下结论:

  1/TPO是备考托福的不二之选

  2/TPO实则是为考试做好积累
