沃邦年終總結|2019年度TOEFL口語年終盤點


來源:   時間:2019-12-30 17:59:23

截止文章發表為止,已進行了53場托?谡Z考試,其中9月7日,9月21日,10月12日,12月1日分成上下午兩場考試。以下數據均統計于這53場托?谡Z考試之中。
 
由于托?谡Z在今年8月份進行了比較大的改革,取消了原來的TASK 1和TASK 5兩個題型。所以本文只討論剩余的4個題型。
 
 我們首先先來看一看TASK 1(以前的TASK 2獨立題) 
 
TASK 2題型問法還是最經典的Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?以及Some people prefer A…Others prefer B…Which do you prefer?這兩種。
 
在53場考試里面,Agree/Disagree贊同反駁類問法出現26次,Preference偏好類問法出現27次。見下圖:
 \

 
話題分類方面,我主要分成了以下5類:
教育/學習 (17題)Education
家庭/朋友 (13題)Family and Friends
社會/工作 (12題)Social and Work
課后活動  (8題)Afterschool Activities
科技        (3題)Technology

下面我們來看一些2019年真題例子

 
01 教育/學習類話題:
20191102
Should the university spend the same time on teaching our own country’s history and the world history?
 
20190901
Imagine that two different universities have accepted you. One university is well known for its excellent academic program, but it's expensive, while another is less well known, but has offered you with scholarship to pay for your intuition fee. Which university would you prefer, explain why.
 
20190707
Should students choose their own courses, or should professor assign courses to them?
 
20190601
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? University should require all the freshmen and sophomores to live on campus.
 
20190519
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A school should no more require students to do experiments but show students the videos of experiments.
 
教育/學習類話題占比一直最高,去年我寫的2018年終盤點中,教育類也是占比最高的,今年一共考了17題。我們可以看見,學生在校內學習方式,選擇大學類型,獎學金類型,是否住校,是否應該把課堂視頻發放到網絡上等話題頻繁出現,明年考試同學尤其注意。
 
02 家庭/朋友類話題:
20190922(同20181216
Some people prefer to stay in touch with their friends and family members while traveling. Others prefer not to get in touch and stay alone. Which do you prefer and why?
 
20190921(下午場)
Which do you prefer when you have conflicts with your friends? Solve the problem face-to-face or by texting or emailing?
 
20190629
Some people sell or give away the gifts they once received from others. Do you think this is a good idea? Why?
 
20190303

20190223
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents should not be allowed to see children's grades without their permission.
 
家庭教育,家人以及朋友關系,占比第二高,今年一共考了13題。經常涉及和朋友產生矛盾后的解決方式,家長是否介入子女教育,誠信,寵物等話題。
 
03 工作/社會類話題:
 20191201(下午場)
There are two kinds of jobs. One offers you high salary but without holidays while the other one offers you relatively lower salary but with regular holidays. Which one do you prefer?

20191013(同201705

20190615
Do you agree with the following statement that all the animals have the right to be treated and respected as human?
 
社會,工作類話題占比第三,今年一共考了12題。
其中公司待遇考的比較頻繁,比如高收入少假期,低收入多假期的選擇,公司環境嚴格等。
社會性話題相對較少,有幾個比較新穎比如對于整容的看法,動物是否應該擁有和人類平等的權利,給陌生人拍照是否應該經過允許,這些屬于在社會上爭議較大,難度較大,臨場考試比較難做到面面俱到的,需要同學提前準備,并且擁有一定的思考和辯證能力。
 
04 課后活動話題:
20191214
Do you prefer go to the museum alone or go with a large group of friends?
 
20191208
Do you prefer watching the entertaining movies or the serious and educational movies?
 
20191026
Do you think that doing extreme sports like rock climbing or parachute jumping is brave or foolish?
 
20191012(上午場)
If you have a week to travel, do you like to travel to different places or just stay in one city?
 
20190414
Some people like to make plans in advance when they decide to travel, while others prefer to make decisions during the trip. Which do you prefer?
 
課后活動類話題占比第四,今年一共考了8題。其中旅游類較多,其他還涉及對于電影的喜好,劇院,博物館,極限運動攀巖跳傘等。
 
05 科技類話題:
20191201(上午場)
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents should control the kids’ access to social media with the increasing popularity of the technology.
 
20190511
Do you agree or disagree with the statement that children could not learn any valuable things from video games?
 
20190413
The older generation enjoys playing board games and card games, while younger generation prefers playing games on cellphones and computers. Which kind of games do you prefer?
 
科技類占比變小,今年只考了3題,我都列在上面了,涉及社交網絡,電子游戲,電腦游戲等,話題比較常規。
 
接下來,我們來看一看綜合題的部分,首先是TASK 2(也就是以前的TASK 3校園類場景話題)
作為綜合口語第一道題目,是校園類場景話題。
主要話題依然是學校設施器材、課程設置、學生活動這幾類。將近八成的考試都考察了校園服務與設施,相信這也是同學們在準備2020年考試時的備考方向及備考重點。
第三題閱讀分為Announcement(學校通知)和Proposal(學生提議)兩種類型,在口語答題時候的主語和人稱不要混淆。
此外,今年聽力中,會出現一個理由贊成,一個理由反駁的情況,比較特殊,大家需要特別注意!
 
接下來是TASK 3(以前的TASK 4學術名詞解釋題)
 
在話題上,經典的三大話題:社會心理學、生物學、和商科依然占據統治性地位。不難發現,不論是TPO還是真實考題,Task 3中最常見的例子就是教授的個人親身經歷,事件以及實驗類話題。除此之外,2019年考題的趨勢與TPO的高度吻合。這也再次說明現在的TPO無疑是最適合提升綜合技能題目的備考材料。無論從話題的難度,廣度,及頻率都和真實的考試十分相似。
口語考試中的最后一題TASK 4(以前的TASK 6學術講座題)
 
Task 4做為口語中的最后一道題,很長時間以來都被考生稱為“最難的關卡”,大家覺得難是因為這個題目依然是學術內容,其次,是因為這個題目一開始就讓考生聽教授講課的錄音,不像第三題先給一篇閱讀文章交代背景。
今年的生物又毫無疑問占了最大的比重,超過一半的題目都是生物類話題。剩余學科包括商務,社會學,環境科學,藝術,文學,天文,地質等等。當然了,學有余力的同學可以多接觸BBC紀錄片,歐美的各種脫口秀節目,聽原版小說的有聲讀物,做配音練習和模仿都是可以提高口語語感,語音語調和分數的不錯的方法。
