二.Task 3真题示范讲解
例1:
Ø 题目简介:

Reading part Listening part
增加fine art course 学校要求必修3个艺术课,:音乐舞蹈表演雕塑,男的不同意。
理由: 理由:
work requires various ability,  学生失去了更多自由选课机会
good for work. 不能选更多和专业相关的课他学banking, 要上finance的课
help students relax. 不是每个人都对艺术有天分 喜欢上这些课,他根本不enjoy雕塑,浪费,stressful

Ø 回答演示1:

From the reading material, we know that the college is going to add music, dance and sculpture as compulsory courses. the man in the conversation thinks that this is a bad idea. First, he majors in banking and has to take finance class,he has to take the fine art courses, and he would lose some opportunities to choose the courses that he needs. Also, he points out that he doesn’t enjoy sculpture at all, it would help students relax, not everyone has the talent about arts. He has to take these courses, it will be a waste of time and make him stressful.

Ø 答案解析:
新托福口语part3中,通常需要考生将主要人物的态度以及两个理由清楚地表达出来,我们可以看到在这个范例中,虽然考生将reading part和listening part 中重要信息都涵盖在答案里,而且没有出现任何明显的语法错误,但是因为缺少必要的逻辑连接词,整个表达给我们一种非常凌乱的感觉,毫无任何连贯和清晰可言。这也是很多考生之所以虽然将笔记记得非常详细,却依然拿不到理想分数的主要原因。

Ø 回答演示2:
From the reading material, we know that the college is going to add music, dance and sculpture as compulsory courses. However, the man in the conversation thinks that this is a bad idea, due to the following reasons. First, considering that he majors in banking and has to take finance class, he would lose some opportunities to choose the courses that he needs, if he had to take the fine art courses. Also, he points out that he doesn’t enjoy sculpture at all even though it would help students relax, for not everyone has the talent about arts. If he had to take these courses, it would be a waste of time and make him stressful.

Ø 答案解析:
在这个回答范例中,我们在原来答案的基础上加入了若干表示原因,让步,条件逻辑关系的连接词,构成了状语从句,可以很明显感到改动后的答案体现了强烈的逻辑感,前后句的关系更加紧密,语意立刻变得清晰,连贯。
