2020年7月11日雅思考试阅读回顾

P1 洋娃娃的历史

P2 工作压力 Stress in Workplace

P3 大蜥蜴

朗阁雅思名师高川川点评

1. 疫情之后的第一场纸笔考试,本次考试的难度总体中等,没有出现大规模配对题,也没有出现Heading题,主要以常规的填空,判断和选择题为主。文章的话题和题型搭配也是在剑桥真题中都有迹可循,所以真题吃透非常必要。

2. 整体分析:涉及社会类(P1)、管理类(P2)、动物类(P3)。

本次考试的三篇文章重复2015年10月24日雅思考试的原篇,但是题目略有改动。P1是常规的填空+判断篇章,两种顺序题型搭配出现,加上话题难度和题目难度不大,应该是容易得分的篇章。备考的同学可以在剑桥系列中大规模进行模拟,保证做题时间和正确率稳定。P2是管理类的话题,介绍了工作压力的问题,难度中等。题型上也延续19年的出题特点,出现配对题,考察定位速度和准确度。主要题型搭配是人名观点配对+单选+Summary填空。P3也是有序题型的搭配,主要是判断+填空+单选。三种题型难度不大,但是文章理解起来略有难度。

3. 部分答案及参考文章:

Passage 1:洋娃娃的历史

题型:填空+判断

技巧分析:对于这类顺序题型结合的篇章,在答案的分布上会存在两种情况:篇章完全正序,也就是各个题号和文章答案对应位置的顺序完全相同,这样定位起来只需要按照题目给出的顺序去做题,定位要求低。另外一种答案对应位置虽然在单个题型内有顺序,在篇章中位置有交叉,这样就要求学生在做题时最好使用平行阅读法,在定位某一段信息时,兼顾可能出现的所有题目,而不是只定位其中一个题型。

参考答案:

  1. clay
  2. goddesses
  3. movable limbs
  4. peg wooden dolls
  5. wax
  6. pulped wood / paper
  7. china
  8. TRUE
  9. NOT GIVEN
  10. TRUE
  11. FALSE
  12. TRUE
  13. 待确认

Passage 2:工作压力 Stress in Workplace

题型:人名观点配对5+单选3+Summary填空6

技巧分析:人名观点的配对注意定位时关注全称和姓,并且这篇文章中人名是按照文章顺序给的,相对难度小。这样的篇章答案在全文的分布是不按照顺序来,所以在定位时,可以多练习如何最大化利用已读信息来确定答案,尽量避免重复阅读,以保证充分的做题时间。

参考答案:

  1. A
  2. D
  3. B
  4. D
  5. C
  6. B
  7. D
  8. A
  9. workplace injury
  10. 16.6 weeks
  11. 7%
  12. golf
  13. massage
  14. workloads

参考文章与题目:

A How busy is too busy? For some it means having to miss the occasional long lunch; for others it means missing lunch altogether. For a few, it is not being able to take a “sickie” once a month. Then there is a group of people for whom working every evening and weekend is normal, and frantic is the tempo of their lives. For most senior executives, workloads swing between extremely busy and frenzied. The vice-president of the management consultancy AT Kearney and its head of telecommunications for the Asia-Pacific region, Neil Plumridge, says his work weeks vary from a “manageable” 45 hours to 80 hours, but average 60 hours.

B Three warning signs alert Plumridge about his workload: sleep, scheduling and family. He knows he has too much on when he gets less than six hours of sleep for three consecutive nights; when he is constantly having to reschedule appointments; “and the third one is on the family side”, says Plumridge, the father of a three-year-old daughter, and expecting a second child in October. “If I happen to miss a birthday or anniversary, I know things are out of control.” Being “too busy” is highly subjective. But for any individual, the perception of being too busy over a prolonged period can start showing up as stress: disturbed sleep, and declining mental and physical health. National workers’ compensation figures show stress causes the most lost time of any workplace injury. Employees suffering stress are off work an average of 16.6 weeks. The effects of stress are also expensive. Comcare, the Federal Government insurer, reports that in 2003-04, claims for psychological injury accounted for 7% of claims but almost 27% of claim costs. Experts say the key to dealing with stress is not to focus on relief – a game of golf or a massage – but to reassess workloads. Neil Plumridge says he makes it a priority to work out what has to change; that might mean allocating extra resources to a job, allowing more time or changing expectations. The decision may take several days. He also relies on the advice of colleagues, saying his peers coach each other with business problems. “Just a fresh pair of eyes over an issue can help,” he says.

C Executive stress is not confined to big organizations. Vanessa Stoykov has been running her own advertising and public relations business for seven years, specializing in work for financial and professional services firms. Evolution Media has grown so fast that it debuted on the BRW Fast 100 list of fastest-growing small enterprises last year – just after Stoykov had her first child. Stoykov thrives on the mental stimulation of running her own business. “Like everyone, I have the occasional day when I think my head’s going to blow off,” she says. Because of the growth phase the business is in, Stoykov has to concentrate on short-term stress relief – weekends in the mountains, the occasional “mental health” day – rather than delegating more work. She says: “We’re hiring more people, but you need to train them, teach them about the culture and the clients, so it’s actually more work rather than less.”

D Identify the causes: Jan Elsnera, Melbourne psychologist who specializes in executive coaching, says thriving on a demanding workload is typical of senior executives and other high-potential business people. She says there is no one-size-fits-all approach to stress: some people work best with high-adrenalin periods followed by quieter patches, while others thrive under sustained pressure. “We could take urine and blood hormonal measures and pass a judgment of whether someone’s physiologically stressed or not,” she says. “But that’s not going to give us an indicator of what their experience of stress is, and what the emotional and cognitive impacts of stress are going to be.”

E Eisner’s practice is informed by a movement known as positive psychology, a school of thought that argues “positive” experiences – feeling engaged, challenged, and that one is making a contribution to something meaningful – do not balance out negative ones such as stress; instead, they help people increase their resilience over time. Good stress, or positive experiences of being challenged and rewarded, is thus cumulative in the same way as bad stress. Elsner says many of the senior businesspeople she coaches are relying more on regulating bad stress through methods such as meditation and yoga. She points to research showing that meditation can alter the biochemistry of the brain and actually help people “retrain” the way their brains and bodies react to stress. “Meditation and yoga enable you to shift the way that your brain reacts, so if you get proficient at it you’re in control.”

F The Australian vice-president of AT Kearney, Neil Plumridge, says: “Often stress is caused by our setting unrealistic expectations of ourselves. I’ll promise a client I’ll do something tomorrow, and then promise another client the same thing, when I really know it’s not going to happen. I’ve put stress on myself when I could have said to the clients: ‘Why don’t I give that to you in 48 hours?’ The client doesn’t care.” Over-committing is something people experience as an individual problem. We explain it as the result of procrastination or Parkinson’s law: that work expands to fill the time available. New research indicates that people may be hard-wired to do it.

G A study in the February issue of the Journal of Experimental Psychology shows that people always believe they will be less busy in the future than now. This is a misapprehension, according to the authors of the report, Professor Gal Zauberman, of the University of North Carolina, and Professor John Lynch, of Duke University. “On average, an individual will be just as busy two weeks or a month from now as he or she is today. But that is not how it appears to be in everyday life,” they wrote. “People often make commitments long in advance that they would never make if the same commitments required immediate action. That is, they discount future time investments relatively steeply.” Why do we perceive a greater “surplus” of time in the future than in the present? The researchers suggest that people underestimate completion times for tasks stretching into the future, and that they are bad at imagining future competition for their time.

参考答案:待补充

考试预测

1. 本场考试整体难度不大,话题相对容易理解,基本还是延续19年的考试趋势,篇章搭配类型也都能够在剑桥真题中找到对应的练习,所以认真做剑桥真题是高分必备。本场考试配对题不多,类型上也只出现了最简单的人名观点配对,下场考试除了常规的填空,判断,选择题之外,要重点预警段落细节配对和前后句的配对,注意这两种题目的定位,题干信息分析和与原文的替换点,同时控制做题时间,保证第三篇文章有充分的时间。19年List of Headings出现的频率大概是1-2次/月,如果对Heading题还是存在疑问的同学,注意下场考试前也要再去复习和巩固Heading题的中心句确定或者段落重心的确定,保证正确题量稳定在目标分数内。

2. 下场考试的话题可能有关历史类,考古类和管理类。

3. 重点浏览2015和2018年机经。

2020年7月11日雅思考试写作回顾

小作文:表格题

大作文:Some people think that sport is very important for society. Others, however, argue that it is nothing more than a leisure activity. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

朗阁名师植正洋点评:

  1. 本次考试难度不高
  2. 整体分析

Task 1:动态表格,5个国家的oil production 变化,有时间对比,均为过去时间。

在描述这类动态图表时,需要注意表格要从两个不同角度对比图表信息,即几个国家之间产量的大小对比,和某个国家石油产量在图示时间范围的变化趋势。参考图表时间信息,作文里可以用到一般过去时态和过去完成时态。在这里给大家补充一些相关词汇句型。

  • output capacity,
  • drastic sevenfold,
  • oil yield;
  • the oil production of国家 topped the list in 年份while witnessed a considerable dip to…

 

  1. Task 2 体育类话题

题目翻译:一些人认为体育运动对社会有重要作用,而有的人认为体育运动只不过是休闲娱乐活动,讨论双方

分析点评:雅思恢复考试的第一场,整体难度不高,从话题上来说,今天的写作题属于体育类,和之前国家是否应该积极举办奥运会那题话题比较接近,是比较老的题目,上一次原题出现是2015年7月25日。从类型上来说,属于双边讨论类,需要注意充分讨论题干两方观点,不可以只说一方。

从结构上来说,可以采取四段式的写法:

第一段:题目改写+个人观点(可提出不同于题干的新观点)。

第二段:讨论A观点,体育运动的社会价值。

第三段:讨论B观点,体育引动作为休闲娱乐活动的价值。

第四段:总结段,表明个人观点。

主体段1:体育赛事在占据新闻媒体很大版面,各项国内和国际的体育赛事是人们持续关注的热点,dominate headlines of media,international sports events, heated focus that gains constant public attention;对众多体育运用的关注和和参与,可以提升整体社会的健康水平 improve overall health index of one community;体育运动不分国界,打破文化隔阂,促进各国经济和文化交流regardless of their cultural background,religions and races.

主体段2:对于个人来说,体育运动是很好地休闲活动,工作之余放松压力,锻炼身体;relieve the stress after heavy workload,build up one’s figure;

对个人和对社会整体,体育运动都有不同的价值。

考试预测

  1. 小作文:重点关注静态图(柱图,饼图)、线图
  2. 大作文:重点关注科技、媒体、社会类话题。

3.重点浏览2015-2016年写作机经,可能还会出现比较旧的原题,可借助《高分范文书》第8版经典旧题来复习。

7月第一场雅思听力考试例子的时间居然回归了,给大家争取了更多的审题时间,希望接下来的场次也有如此好运。考试整体难度适中,语速会比较快,所以平时一定要加强对于语速快的题目比如S2 S3选择题或者搭配题的精听。S1考察的是常见的咨询类场景,一位男士打电话咨询幼儿园的情况,从价格先开始问起,对于数字和月份都有考察到,整体词汇较简单,但也要注意出现了apron围裙这个单词。咨询类场景是非常高频的场景,平时要多练习精听。S2考察的是人文场景,博物馆也是现在非常喜欢考察的,题型主要是选择和搭配题,也是s2常见的题型分布。S3选择题和搭配的组合也是比较常规的,内容是两个学生讨论狄更斯的作品。S4讨论的是盐的历史讲座,整体考察词汇较简单,题材也是比较常规的。

本场考试需注意“选择+搭配”的题型组合,S2和S3都是考察这种形式,平时要加强练习。参考剑桥练习:剑8Test3 Section3;剑10Test2 Section2;剑10Test3 Section3

 

备注: 本场考试四个部分3旧1新。填空选择比例20:20。题型方面,S1 10道填空题,题目不难,主要考察咨询场景,平时多积累高频场景词汇;S2选择+搭配,考察的是科技博物馆,对于人文场景一定要多重视,平时多精听S3选择+搭配,这样的搭配一定要多练习,语速快的题可以用来考前适应节奏S4考察笔记填空,本场考察的词汇都是常规词汇,盐的历史类似的题型还挺多的,考生可以多做练习,平时多积累同义替换。

考试预测

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。

2. 题型:本次考试题型设置较常规。S1,S4填空为主;S2,S3单选/多选和配对为主。

3. 机经:如需参考机经,以2015-2018年机经为主。

朗阁名师汪婧点评

Part 1:

经历过漫~~长的等待,雅思终于千呼万唤又回来! 相信同学们真是等到花儿也谢了啊。这一次给大家送上了最新收集到的雅思口语新题,大家看了以后觉得怎么样呢?总体来说雅思口语part1的难度还是保持不变的,综合一些爱好类、抽象类的题。大家只要做到多从主观的角度去回答,就能有不错的发挥。比如你是一个爱干净的人吗?Not really, I am kind of lazy so, I would prefer just to tidy my room like, once per two weeks? I know it would be a little bit messy, but you know, I am a student who studies 24/7, so tidiness is not my top priority. 因为我比较懒,而且又是一个忙的要死的学生,所以保持干净这种事儿并不是我最在意的事情。从个人的人设角度出发,回答问题就会很简单了。

 

Part2:

这个季度的“新题”里其实有不少老题回炉重造。比如描述一个纪念品,描述你跟朋友吃的愉快一餐等。

建议大家在选择素材的时候,不要选那些烂大街的,大部分学生都会说的。比如吃饭说生日派对,电影说哈利波特,人物说马云…… 还是讲一些更小众,更和自己的生活娱乐相关的话题会更容易出彩。比方说,吃饭可以说去网红餐厅打卡,人物可以说某个游戏主播…… 越是和自己的爱好结合,越是能容易讲出一个有趣又生动的素材。

考试建议

基于现在还有很多新题并没有出来,大家一定要好好去练1-4月口语题库中画下划线的题目(本季度必考的考题),以及本期考题回顾中汪老师给大家收集的题目。记住,口语,practise makes perfect 你第一遍磕磕绊绊,第二遍勉勉强强,第三遍就可以轻松自如啦。总之,自信,自然,自HIGH,面对考官,表现最好的自己!加油!
