  • PTE写作考试真题(一)

    2017-04-25

        今天咱们就赶紧来看一篇PTE写作原题及范文



        考试原题: What do you think is the greatest invention of the 20thcentury: medicine, airplane or computers?  why? 


        There can be no doubt that the twentieth century is one of the most remarkable in human history for its previously unparalleled rate of technological advances and scientific discoveries. (万能开头模版句哦)With the advent of computers, medicine and airplane, humankinds have progressed in all aspects of life.(点题)  In my opinion, computers can be seen as the greatest inventions among the three,(给出观点)considering its extraordinary computing capabilities and superb utility in storing information.(总述两个分论点)


                                                 PTE写作真题(一)


        First of all, computers, capable of doing numerous mathematical calculations with incredible speed and pinpoint accuracy(插入语哦), have been playing an essential role in increasing productivity and reducing human errors. Thanks to computers, human involvement is greatly minimized by just supplying data to the computer and getting results in a fraction of seconds. (第一个观点讲计算能力带来的好处)


        Secondly, computers can store large amount of information and users can retrieve it later for further processing. For instance, trend analysis and financial forecast of a company are done by reference to its historical data stored in computers. Thus it is evident to conclude that computers have contributed significantly to the business world. (第二个观点讲电脑储存信息的好处)

        

        In conclusion, I am firmly convinced that computers are the top innovations of the 20th century considering its high speed processing ability and the high storage facility. (总结概括两个分论点) Therefore, we can say that life without computers seems to be like a rose without petal.  (word count: 226)

  • PTE口语真题之 Describe Image (一)地图题

    2017-04-26

        对于考PTE小伙伴们来说 Image 可能一直是大家心中的痛。下面就一起来看看真题,找出模板,多加练习吧。


    PTE口语考试真题


        参考范文:

        The map shows the vegetation coverage across the world of three main ages.

        The green color means closed forest (which is over 70% plant cover) while the yellow color represents extreme desert (which has less than 2% of vegetation cover).

     

        About 18,000 years ago,in the last glacial maximum, (充分利用图片给出的信息词哦!!)the extreme desert coveredhuge areas including North Africa,  the middle east and southern part of Australia.

     

        Roughly 8000 years ago, closed forest exist in most part of America, central Africa, east Asia and Europe.

     

        At present, the distribution of closed forest remains almost the same areas,but extreme desert appears in North Africa, and middle Asia.



        vegetation n./vɛdʒɪˈteɪʃ(ə)n/ 植被

        glacial  maximun /ˈɡleɪsɪəl/ 最大冰川

        Holocene  /ˈhɒləsiːn/ adj. 全新世纪元




        参考范文:

        This map vivdly illustrates the distribution of cities with at least a million inhabitants in 2006.

     

        It is crystal clear that the population distribution is not even across the world.

     

        Most populous cites are located in Eastern China, India and Europe. In America, Africa and Australia, those cities are mainly around the sea coast.

     

        We can see in many continents, the coastal cities are more populous than inner cities.



        populous: adj. /ˈpɒpjʊləs/人口稠密的


        语速快的小伙伴,PTE口语考试要记住五句话法。通常第一句重复题目,overall 图表是什么,第二句,图标,注释,各代表什么。第三句,地图内容,图表题则强调发展趋势;第四句 地图内容,图表题 则强调极值,第五句,结尾。


  • PTE口语真题之describe image (二) 线图

    2017-04-26

        亲爱的小伙伴们:首先告诉自己:曲线图并不难,不难,不难。然后我们来一起熟悉一下如何描述PTE口语 describe image 题中的曲线图吧!


    PTE口语真题之describe image (二) 线图

        1.审题,理解横轴,纵轴坐标,代表含义及单位。

        2.观察直线走势,不外乎三类:上升,下降,波动。

        上升的表达:rise, grow, ascend,increase to;急剧上升:shoot up to, surge, soar;

        下降的表达:drop to, decline to,fall, 急剧下降:plunge to, plummet to

        波动:fluctuates over (a period of time)

        稳定:stand at

        3.找出极值:最高点 peak at; 最低点 bottom out at

        4.数字前用大约:about,around, roughly, approximately

        5.超过:overtake, exceed, surpass


        The line graph highlights the rate of smoking in Someland by both men andwomen over 40 years from 1960 to 2000. 第一句话复述题目。一定要看见横轴年代数字下面的那行字哟。


        Male smokers were the highest in 1960 at 600 thousand and it gradually decline to a low of around 300 thousand in 2000. 第二句话,描述一条线,讲极值,讲趋势。


        On the other hand, the number of women smokers was the lowest in 1960 at 100 thousand and it gradually increase, peaking at 300 thousand in 1975 and eventually decreased to 200 thousand in 2000.第三句话,另一条线,同样强调极值和趋势。


        Overall, although men were traditionally heavier smokers than women in1960, both are smoking at almost the same rate at 250 to 300 thousand in 2000.总结整体趋势,得出结论。



        祝大家早日考过PTE



  • PTE阅读小技巧

    2017-04-26

        PTE阅读有两大要点需要重视:1.时间控制;2.单词量。

        单词量达到8000以上,足以充分应对PTE。

        备考时,也可以多背Gmat单词。

        同时,在背单词的时候,一定要重视词组固定搭配,例如:date from=date back to;熟悉固定搭配可以在完形填空题中节省很多时间。

        PTE 阅读的考试时间为32-41分钟。随机分配时间和考题,题目的顺序也不固定。阅读时间非常紧张,所以我们平时练习时,就要对每一题该花的时间心中有数。

    PTE阅读小技巧

        阅读时间:

        总时间:32-41分钟

        1. Re-order paragraphs 3-4 mins

        2. Multiple choice, choose multiple answers <1.5 mins

        3. Multiple choice, choose single answer <1.5 mins

        4. Fill in the blanks: Reading and Writing < 2 mins

        5. Fill in the blanks: Reading < 2 mins

        从时间分配上,我们可以看出,阅读题当中,最重要的题型叫做:re-order paragraphs! 也就是段落排序题。这类题型分值最高,全对满分是10分,但是如果错一个,很有可能就全盘皆输,只得2分或者0分。在10分和2分之间,基本不存在中间分数,所以拉分很厉害。其他的选择和填空基本都是一个空一分,而且一道题错了并不会影响其他题。然而,段落排序至关重要,是影响阅读分数的终极BOSS之一。

        段落排序题,我们应该注意什么?

        1.时间顺序:一般看到具体时间,年代,年龄,通常都是按照时间顺序从早到晚排列。很少出现倒叙,插叙的现象。                     

        2.定位代词:出现代词 he, she,they 等等的时候,一定要有意识地去寻找上文指代内容,根据指代提示,排列顺序。如果先出现全名,后出现姓或名,一定是全名在前。                                       

        3. 连接词:however一类的转折连接词一定不会出现在第一段。

        此外,在PTE评分标准贴中,我们已经介绍过,PTE的听说读写四项都是交互打分的。也就是说,阅读的分数,不单只看阅读题,口语和听力题也能很大程度上影响到阅读的分数。比如口语题中,read aloud 的断句,会影响阅读分数。

        同时也意味着,阅读不够强的小伙伴可以通过口语和听力在一定程度上提高阅读分数。

        PTE听说读写四项,按照重要程度排序为:1.口语;2.听力;3.阅读;4.写作。
