新六级改革讲座听力样卷和备考策略

作者:王树振

对于六级听力新加入了讲座听力,很多人认为难于上青天,其实不然。任何应试,只要抓住策略就能一举攻下。今天青树英语四六级辅导专家王树振老师给大家就六级听力讲座的备考策略做一说明。

因为现有资料只有样题可供参考,因此务必好好研究样题把握出题思路。通过样题我们总结出如下原则:所听即所得-不像对话类的题目需要我们去推测对话人之间的隐含意思,讲座与之前的篇章听力一样,听到即是答案,答案基本是原文中的内容;另外我们需要把握一些词的前后是出题的重心,比如as a matter of fact/ but/ yet/ because/ as a result/ little等;在听之前最好通过题目中的关键词和高频词抓到主旨,这样就能够判断出部分题目的答案,而且题目越多就越能够把握文章主旨。

仅仅是技巧不可能致胜,要想拿下六级的讲座听力,需要提高大家的听力水平才是王道。没有讲座,我们仍旧可以以真题中的短文听力为训练资料。我们训练的步骤首先是做题,摘抄句子和词语,进行听写。听写是一个艰难的过程,一篇文章可以切割成一句一句地进行训练,而后再进行整篇文章的听写。听写对于其他听力题型同样是极具效果的。

该讲座或者讲话题型,难点之一是可能围绕一专业性话题展开,因此,在预读选项时碰到23题D可能不明白在表达什么内容,因此这可能是在理解选项上的一个障碍。

样题原文:

Now listen to the following recording and answer questions 23 to 25.

I’d like to look at a vital aspect of e-commerce, and that is the nature of the product or service. There are certain products and services that are very suitable for selling online, and others that simply don’t work.

Suitable products generally have a high value-to-weight ratio. Items such as CDs and DVDs are obvious examples. Books, although heavier and so more expensive to post, still have a high enough value-to-weight ratio, as the success of Amazon, which started off selling only books, shows. Laptop computers are another good product for selling online.

Digital products, such as software, films and music, can be sold in a purely virtual environment. The goods are paid for by online transactions, and then downloaded onto the buyer’s computer. There are no postage or delivery costs, so prices can be kept low.

Many successful virtual companies provide digital services, such as financial transactions, in the case of Paypal, or means of communication, as Skype does. The key to success here is providing an easy-to-use, reliable service. Do this and you can easily become the market leader, as Skype has proved.

Products which are potentially embarrassing to buy also do well in the virtual environment. Some of the most profitable e-commerce companies are those selling sex-related products or services. For a similar reason, online gambling is highly popular.

Products which are usually considered unsuitable for selling online include those that have a taste or smell component. Food, especially fresh food, falls into this category, along with perfume. Clothes and other items that need to be tried on such as diamond rings and gold necklaces are generally not suited to virtual retailing, and, of course, items with a low value-to-weight ratio.

There are exceptions, though. Online grocery shopping has really taken off, with most major supermarkets offering the service. The inconvenience of not being able to see the food you are buying is outweighed by the time saved and convenience of having the goods delivered. Typical users of online supermarkets include the elderly, people who work long hours and those without their own transport.

23 What is important to the success of an online store?D

24. What products are unsuitable for selling online?A

25. Who are more likely to buy groceries online? B

讲座、讲话听力题型内容上比较专业,但在形式上更偏口语表达,因此我们在把握住该类题型的行文方式和风格基础上,靠日常多多积累多多练习,一定会攻克的,预祝大家复习顺利。
