Part1部分的题目难度适中，同学们在答题时经常会出现时态混乱的情况，例如题目是“Did you…”“Have you ever…”“What was your first/last…”这样的句型，一定要把握住正确的时态，也就是评分标准中的语法要注意。其次在使用句型，表达方式上也尽量进行拓展。最后注意控制大家答案的长度，part1把握直接给答案+补充细节内容即可。

Section 1属于house renting话题，这个月考核的频率比较高，里面包含了一定分值的数字听写和字母拼写。学生在私下练习的时候需要注意数字考点一般都会出现干扰信息，要额外注意原文中的否定结构和限定条件是否符合题干内容。本身题目不难，粗心的同学如果听到数字直接填写，则会丢掉分数。
Section 2属于动物题材的讨论，以多选+单选的形式出现。此场考试整体单选题占分比非常低，又出现在section2部分，因此难度一定程度上出现了弱化。此次section2是新题，题材背景和考核的单词都不难，比较好理解。其中配备的多选题是以5选2的形式出现，整体比较常规。 后期学生在备考的时候，如果想要保证基础分，还是需要重视section2内容的练习。
Section 3是以对话形式出现论文的讨论。前4道题以配对题形式出现，题干和选项非常精简，其中出现的同义替换如：too long----short这种考法，在练习过的剑桥14-1-3的配对题中也出现过，学生有兴趣可以查看回顾一下。所以，我们在审题的时候，需要额外关注选项中的趋势词，考法比较单一和直接，敏感度要高。接下来出了3道句子填空题，答案词也是经常会出现在现有真题的作业讨论内容当中，如notes，listening task。最后3题的多选，以7选3的形式出现，此类型的考核需要注意原文中的并列结构，会将多个答案一起报出来，此part考核的同义替换比较容易，如global---international---all over the world。整体来看，难度比较适中，并未出现偏难的内容。
Section 4 依旧按照填空题出现，讲述的是建筑+环境问题。其中整个题干小标题比较清晰，学生在审题的时候，注意小标题字眼的定位提示性作用。其中答案词在类似题目中出现过，其中还有不少单词和section1 考核的点相重合。因此，学生仍然在私下练习的时候注意题干的同义替换和重音提示，尽量做到单词拼写正确，不要出错。相关环境内容可以参考C11-4-4以及12-8-4。
1. 场景方面：场景方面依然是主流场景（咨询、旅游生活场景、课程讨论、学科探讨和讲座），在接下来的考试中，考生还应将重点放在S1咨询，租房，求职 ，S2旅游，活动及公共场所设施介绍，S3课程讨论及论文写作，S4各类学科探讨和讲座。

P3 Musical Maladies

Music and the brain are both endlessly fascinating subjects, and as a neuroscientist specialising in auditory learning and memory, I find them especially intriguing. So I had high expectations of Musicophilia, the latest offering from neurologist and prolific author Oliver Sacks. And I confess to feeling a little guilty reporting that my reactions to the book are mixed.
Sacks himself is the best part of Musicophilia. He richly documents his own life in the book and reveals highly personal experiences. The photograph of him on the cover of the book which shows him wearing headphones, eyes closed, clearly enchanted as he listens to Alfred 1 Brendel perform Beethoven's Pathitique Sonata--makes a positive impression that is borne out by the contents of the book. Sacks's voice throughout is steady and erudite but never pontifical. He is neither self-conscious nor self-promoting.
The preface gives a good idea of what the book will deliver. In it Sacks explains that he wants to convey the insights gleaned from the ^enormous and rapidly growing body of work on the . neural underpinnings of musical perception and imagery, and the complex and often bizarre disorders to which these are prone." He also stresses the importance of Mthe simple art of observation" and Mthe richness of the human context.He wants to combine observation and I description with the latest in technology,” he says, and to imaginatively enter into the expe-rience of his patients and subjects. The reader can see that Sacks, who has been practicing neurology for 40 years, is torn between the old-fashionedw path of observation and the new-fangled, high-tech approach: He knows that he needs to take heed of the latter， but his heart lies with the former.
The book consists mainly of detailed descriptions of cases, most of them involving patients whom Sacks has seen in his practice. Brief discussions of contemporary neuroscientific reports are sprinkled liberally throughout the text. Part I, MHaunted by Music," begins with the strange case of Tony Cicoria, a nonmusical, middle-aged surgeon who was consumed by a love of music after being hit by lightning. He suddenly began to crave listening to piano music， which _ he had never cared for in the past. He started to play the piano and then to compose music，1 which arose spontaneously in his mind in a u torrentw of notes. How could this happen? Was I the cause psychological? (He had had a near-death experience when the lightning struck him.) Or was it the direct result of a change in the auditory regions of his cerebral cortex? Electro-encephalography (EEG) showed his brain waves to be normal in the mid-1990s, just after his trauma and subsequent Mconversionw to music. There are now more sensitive tests, but Cicoria has declined to undergo them; he does not want to delve into the causes of his musicality. What a shame!
Part II, “A Range of Musicality,” covers a wider variety of topics，but unfortunately，some of the chapters offer little or nothing that is new. For example, chapter 13, which is five pages long, merely notes that the blind often have better hearing than the sighted. The most interesting chapters are those that present the strangest cases. Chapter 8 is about “amusia，”an inability to hear sounds as music， and “dysharmonia，”a highly specific impairment of the ability to hear harmony, with the ability to understand melody left intact. Such specific dissociationsw are found throughout the cases Sacks recounts.
To Sacks's credit, part III, "Memory, Movement and Music," brings us into the underappreciated realm of music therapy. Chapter 16 explains how "melodic intonation therapy" is being used to help expressive aphasic patients (those unable to express their thoughts verbaDy following a stroke or other cerebral incident) once again become capable of fluent speech. In chapter 20, Sacks demonstrates the near-miraculous power of music to animate Parkinson’s patients and other people with severe movement disorders, even those who are frozen into odd postures. Scientists cannot yet explain how music achieves this effect.
To readers who are unfamiliar with neuroscience and music behavior, Musicophilia may be something of a revelation. But the book will not satisfy those seeking the causes and implications of the phenomena Sacks describes. For one thing, Sacks appears to be more at ease dis* cussing patients than discussing experiments. And he tends to be rather uncritical in accepting scientific findings and theories.
It's true that the causes of music-brain oddities remain poorly understood. However, Sacks could have done more to draw out some of the implications of the careful observations that he and other neurologists have made and of the treatments that have been successful. For example, he might have noted that the many specific dissociations among components of music comprehension, such as loss of the ability to perceive harmony but not melody, indicate that there is no music center in the brain. Because many people who read the book are likely to believe in the brain localisation of all mental functions, this was a missed educational opportunity.
Another conclusion one could draw is that there seem to be no Mcuresff for neurological problems involving music. A drug can alleviate a symptom in one patient and aggravate it in another, or can have both positive and negative effects in the same patient. Treatments mentioned seem to be almost exclusively antiepileptic medications, which "damp down" the excitability of the brain in general; their effectiveness varies widely.
Finally, in many of the cases described here the patient with music-brain symptoms is reported to have "normal" EEG results. Although Sacks recognises the existence of new technologies, among them far more sensitive ways to analyze brain waves than the standard neurological EEG test, he does not call for their use. In fact, although he exhibits the greatest compassion for patients, he conveys no sense of urgency about the pursuit of new avenues in the diagnosis and treatment of music-brain disorders. This absence echoes the book's preface, in which Sacks expresses fear that wthe simple art of observation may be lost" if we rely too much on new technologies. He does call for both approaches, though, and we can only hope that the neurological community will respond.
