态度题在托福老师中属于较难回答的问题。

这类问题考察的speaker对某一事情或事物的态度。在做题时,切记勿将自己的态度、观点强加给speaker。

Speaker’s attitude

通常speaker的态度分为四种:

Positive

Negative

Objective

Not clear

Notice some words and sentences

表示肯定态度:favorable, approval, supportive, defensive, etc.

表示否定态度:disapproval, opposition, critical, dissatisfied, etc.

表示客观态度:neutral, impartial, unprejudiced, unbiased, ect.

一些特定的语言后会出现speaker的态度,如:

I think…

As far as I am concerned…

In my opinion…

It seems to me that…

Some tips about attitude questions:

1. 在听听力时, 注意听一些可以表达作者态度、观点的词语或是句子,比如在上面列出的一些词和句型。

2. 听到这些词大家也不能仅仅根据这些词选择,需要在仔细听后面有没有转折的地方。特别要注意but, however这些词后面的部分,通常这些词的后面才表明speaker的态度。

3. 注意speaker说话时的语调,是高兴,还是犹豫,这些在答题时都会有帮助。

有时,speaker不会直接表达态度,会通过更为委婉的方式表达。大家来看下面一个例子:

I heard some great examples of this on the television program on crocodiles last week. Anyone catch it? It had a few interesting bits. But you know, uh, you have to be careful, think critically. Sometimes I don't know where these shows find their experts.

What is the professor's opinion about the television program that she mentions?

A. She is concerned about the accuracy of some of the information the experts provided.

B. She is hopeful that the class will be able to discuss it.

C. She thinks it was overly critical of some recent theories about crocodiles.

D. She is surprised that it did not include more examples of crocodile communication

在这段听力材料中,speaker认为有关鳄鱼的电视节目” had a few interesting bits”,但紧接着,后面出现了”but”,表明对这一节目的质疑,因此就可以排除B项和D项,C项虽然出现了“critical”这个词,但指的是电视节目“critical”,因此排除,答案为A.
