托福机考(IBT)中,听、说、读、写四部分是分开逐步进行。而阅读部分作为托福考试的开篇,直接关系着考生们的心态,甚至对整场托福考试成败有很大的影响,但很多同学在托福阅读部分,没有掌握正确的做题方法,往往陷入一种“很努力,但成绩不理想”的误区。为此,留学监理网的小编为大家分享托福名师解答:掌握这四项关键点,顺利攻克托福阅读难关。

托福阅读成绩的高低在于知道答案在哪里,而非答案是什么。

明白作者的写作思路,找到文章的段与段之前、句子与句子之间的逻辑关系,掌握正确做题思路,以不变应万变才是关键。

因此,想要取得托福阅读部分的高分,托福名师指出,大家最好懂得以下四大关键点:

关键点1:逻辑关系最重要

一般来讲,托福阅读中常见的逻辑关系主要有转折逻辑、并列逻辑、比较逻辑、因果逻辑、举例逻辑五种。

逻辑是一篇文章的灵魂,也是出题者的集中地,考试中经常以混淆逻辑关系为出题点,所以快速识别出文章中的逻辑关系绝对是阅读备考的重中之重。托福文章多以科普性文章居多,有时逻辑关系表达的比较隐晦,一时间可能难以识别,但是这些都可以通过平时的训练进行提高,直至形成条件性反射。

下面就是为大家整理的一些逻辑关系的提示词,看到这些词,大家就要警觉起来,迅速识别出是哪种逻辑关系!但是这些提示词也仅供参考,大家还是要考虑具体语境。

注:以下例句均出自托福TPO阅读。

1)转折逻辑

这是必须掌握的逻辑关系,很容易出题。我们把让步与转折都归到这里,因为它们的提示词往往很相似,但是具体是让步还是转折我们还是根据语境分析。转折,常见于前后具有两个完全相反的意思;而让步往往有欲扬先抑、先贬后煲的意味,提及的信息有一种预料之外的感觉。

but / however 最容易辨别的提示词

The green iceberg did not contain large amounts of particles from these   organisms, but the ice had accumulated dissolved organic matter from the   seawater.

even though / even if 虽然,即使

Even if the new population is of a different species, it can approximately   fill the niche vacated by the extinct population and keep the food web   intact.

nonetheless / nevertheless 尽管如此,然而

A warm-blooded turtle may seem to be a contradiction in terms. Nonetheless,   an adult leatherback can maintain a body temperature of between 25 and 26°C   (77-79°F) in seawater that is only 8°C (46.4°F).

despite / in spite of 尽管

But the shortage of crews proved to be a greater and greater problem, despite   continuous appeal to Venic’s tradition of maritime greatness.

at least 隐含让步

At least in temperate zones, maximum diversity is often found in   mid-successional stages, not in the climax community.

seem to后常见转折

One Lascaux narrative picture, which shows a man with a birdlike head and a   wounded animal, would seem to lend credence to this third opinion, but there is   still much that remains unexplained.

2)并列逻辑

出现并列时要注意,要迅速把并列对象联系起来,很可能会在except题中出现。同时,某些并列词常伴随着对比转折关系。

and / both ……and…… 最明显的并列提示词。名词间用and连接表并列,句子间用and连接常表递进

It swims farther into the cold of the northern and southern oceans than any   other sea turtle, and it deals with the chilly waters in a way unique among   reptiles.

between……and…… / among

Generally, there is uncertainty as to whether very young children can   distinguish between fantasy and reality in advertising.

as well as 还有

All had immediate access to the sea, and this had important implications for   a significant international resource, fish, as well as for cheap transport,   merchant marines, and the shipbuilding industry.

together with 伴随

Recent measurements made in the field together with laboratory simulations   offer a promising explanation of how this structure of charged particles   forms.

comprise / consist 包含

The greater Pacific region, traditionally called Oceania, consists of three   cultural areas: Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia.

either……or…… / neither……nor……

Steam also promised to eliminate a transportation problem not fully solved by   either canal boats or turnpikes.

apart from 除了

Apart from statues representing deities, kings, and named members of the   elite that can be called formal, there is another group of three-dimensional   representations that depicts generic figures, frequently servants, from the   nonelite population.

3)比较逻辑

主要集中在相同相似、相反相异、比较级与最高级。另外,在涉及到两个不同的对象,转折逻辑可以转换为比较逻辑。

previously 时间先后对比

Previously, large audiences had viewed spectacles at the theater, where   vaudeville, popular dramas, musical and minstrel shows, classical plays,   lectures, and slide-and-lantern shows had been presented to several hundred   spectators at a time.

the first time 第一次 隐含的和以前的比较,以前没有过

For the first time, people began to talk about ice ages.

比较级

最高级

It was constructed in the latest Italian style.

倍数

Furthermore, other studies show that Caucasian American mother-child pairs   talk about past events three times more often than do Korean mother-child   pairs.

similar / same / different 表相同相似与不同

The Kinetoscope parlors functioned in a similar way.

relatively / comparatively

On Mars, there are relatively few craters less than 5 kilometers in   diameter.

rather than 而不是,两者对比

There is little doubt, however, that desertification in most areas results   primarily from human activities rather than natural processes.

by contrast 与前者正反对比

likewise 同样地

some……others…… 转折逻辑可以转换为比较逻辑

4)因果逻辑

一定要搞清楚原因和结果,常见错误选项设置即因果倒置。

because / so / therefore 最明显的因果逻辑提示词

Because the surface of the water table is not flat but instead rises and   falls with topography, groundwater is affected by gravity in the same fashion as   surface water.

cause / lead to 原因导致结果

In Europe as a whole, the exceptional reduction in the population and the   related fall in demand for grain since the beginning of the seventeenth century   had caused the price of agricultural products to fall.

result / consequence 结果是……的原因

The great height of Martian volcanoes is a direct consequence of the planet’s   low surface gravity.

after 后面跟隐含的原因

once 后面跟隐含的原因

Once seen by the natives, such objects created a fashion which rapidly spread   through the province.

5)举例逻辑

举例是把一类事物落实到具体的事物上,常见于推断题。例如:

我喜欢打游戏,比如荒野行动。

可推出“荒野行动是游戏”以及“我喜欢荒野行动”。

such as

The use of celebrities such as singers and movie stars is common in   advertising.

like

Consequently, the timing and rhythms of biological functions must closely   match periodic events like the solar day, the tides, the lunar cycle, and the   seasons.

关键点4:掌握正确的托福阅读文章套路

The majority【多数,暗含了比较】 of three-dimensional representations【复数词,易展开】, whether   【让步】standing, seated, or【并列】 kneeling, exhibit【学术】what is called frontality:   they face straight ahead, neither twisting nor turning【并列】. When such statues   are viewed in isolation, out of 【负向词】 their original context 【学术】and   【并列】without【否定】 knowledge of their function【学术】, it is easy【态度】 to criticize【否定   态度】them for their rigid attitudes 【态度】that remained unchanged【否定】for three   thousand years. Frontality is, however,【转折】 directly related to 【隐含因果词】the   functions of Egyptian statuary and the contexts in which the statues were set   up. Statues were created not 【否定】for their decorative effect but 【转折】to play a   primary role in the cults of the gods, the king, and 【并列】the dead. They were   designed to be put in places where these beings could manifest themselves in   order to 【目的】be the recipients of ritual actions. Thus【因果】 it made sense to show   the statue looking ahead at what was happening in front of it, so that【因果】 the   living performer of the ritual could interact with the divine or deceased   recipient. Very often such statues were enclosed in rectangular shrines or   【并列】wall niches whose only opening was at the front, making it natural for the   statue to display frontality. Other【比较】 statues were designed to be placed   within an architectural setting, for instance,【举例】 in front of the monumental   entrance gateways to temples known as pylons, or in pillared courts, where they   would be placed against or between pillars: their frontality worked   perfectly【态度】 within the architectural context.
