刚刚查到成绩 阅读29 听力29 口语26 写作28 总分112 先说一下自己的情况 一直是比较喜欢英语的 G没考 高中时四级96.5六级89 全国大学生英语竞赛一等奖 从5月1号才开始准备 准备的日子一直在太傻潜水 能得到这个成绩是和大傻的帮助分不开的 考完后就想写JJ 可睡了一觉全都忘了 下面说说我对整个考试的想法 也算是对太傻的一点回报 1 关于报名 没报上的不用着急 先把一切都准备好 考前两周左右去刷考位 不是所有退考的人都能把考位转让出去 考前两周内会有人退的 我是4月15日在网上买的考位 怪谁呢? 提前没计划 什么时候报名都不知道。 结果5月5号左右无意中发现很多地方都有空位 肯定是有些人快到考试时觉得没准备好 想退掉下次考的 所以么早计划早报名 要么考前两周刷考位 没必要花钱买的 2 关于阅读 我和很多人一样 惨遭518的阅读第一篇 在没进入状态的情况下伴随着脚步声和I live in Beijing 的声音手就开始发抖什么都看不懂了 当时都想放弃重考了 所以 大家一定要对第一篇阅读的难度有充分的思想准备 和OG Delta的难度不在一个水平线上 如果在非常放松的情况下做应该和Barron Kaplan的第一套差不多吧 建议大家以后准备时多做做GRE阅读 另外 即使觉得第一篇很难 也不要觉得沮丧 阅读成绩是最让我惊讶的 考后预期只有22分左右 第一篇阅读的后5题基本是没看题直接选的 所以我认为 ETS在给分的时候肯定不是按你错多少算的 要不是按正态分布 要不是某题错的人多了就不算分 总之 对于阅读第一篇 战略上藐视战术上重视 3 关于听力口语 和Barron的差不多吧 我平时有个习惯 走路听英语 一边听一边跟着读 给自己创造一个英语环境 时间长了口语听力就都是小case了 如果你天天沉浸在CNN BBC Sex and City的环境里 还用怕托福的听力和口语么?(这样做的唯一坏处是会被路人骂为神经病 呵呵) 4 关于记笔记 记笔记的重要性是众所周知的 我平时听力不错 可开始做题的时候还是错很多 后来专门练习怎么把英文写快 怎么写到点子上 练了几个小时就很有效果 个人认为 1) 一个单词一笔写完 2) 大多数词写一半就可以了 3) 省略a the 之类没用的词 4) 学术类段子的专业词汇第一次出现可以写下来 以后就用大写字母代替 5) 出现人名 地名的时候写个大概就可以 但写完之后一定划个圈 肯定会考到的 有标记好找 6) 我看了网上速记的教材 觉得如果不是专业的根本没时间学那些符号 就算学会了也未必会用 还是自己的东西适合自己 7) 如果听力中出现描述一个问题的过程,比如一个建筑是怎么建成的,一定要记下来 最好用流程图 根据我的经验99%会考 5关于索要草稿纸 开考时只有3张草稿纸 不够了再要 可万一答题或听段子中间不够了怎么办? 我字写的大 平时做模拟题一套能用上10张草稿纸 正反面都写满了 所以考试之前为草稿纸的事苦恼了半天 如果你的字也比较大 下面是我的一点建议: 1) 听力的答题时间是绰绰有余的 所以 可以在每个section答到最后一题时不按PROCEED, 举手要纸。这样一共可以要两次 9张纸应该够用了 2) 索要草稿纸时你必须保证每张纸上都写有字 3) 换纸的时候把铅笔也换一下 否则写到最后字会粗得自己都不认识的 6关于偷听口语题 实践证明 听到口语题并做好充分准备是完全可能的!我是中间靠后一点进去的 比较幸运 做听力加试的时候正好旁边的mm说口语 因为是加试 基本没听 把耳机的一个耳朵挪一下位置听她讲口语 一共听到四道题 不过第一题听错了 听完之后休息的时候就在纸上写草稿  真正说的时候就轻松了不少 结果是1Good 2 Fair 3 Good, 可笑吧 大家认为最简单的第二部分居然是fair 建议大家 1) 晚进去 但别太晚 否则答阅读的时候就听到别人口语就惨了 2) 如果你和我一样遇到听力加试 恭喜你了 你有足够的时间偷听口语 偷听的时候边听边记 不用担心被发现 老师会以为你在做听力呢(嘘,小声~~~) 3) 休息时间除了上厕所 别吃东西了 考试时精神高度紧张是不会觉得饿的 赶快回来写草稿 能写多少写多少 4) PROCEED慢点摁 口语开始之前是要输密码的 老师不过来就别叫她 准备时间多多益善啦 5) 不要过分相信你听到的题目 要有听错的心理准备 7关于口语前两题准备 这是唯一可以准备的部分 开始时看JJ时 一点思路都没有 又不想背网上人家用滥的段子 只好自己写 写了几个段子之后豁然开朗 自己写的东西灵活运用很容易 几乎所有的问题都可以应付 下面奉上我准备时写的5个段子 仅供参考 大家一定要有自己的东西 亦可下载附件 It is called “eagle”. It earned its name from its shape, like a lonely eagle, with a kind of quiet power overlooking the ground. It’s attractive to me because it’s so mysterious, as if it's holding a secret. When we got to the top of the mountain, we shouted “we are king of the world!”. You know the feeling of excitement when you have finally attained your destination—the feeling that you have conquered the mountain. And above all, you have conquered yourself.

It’s a good way to relax. After a day of tedious work, I would turn to piano to sooth my mind. From very moment my fingers are on the keyboard, I found myself drowned in a completely different world. It’s a world of music, a world of fun, a world of Chopin and Beethoven. More importantly, it makes me an artistic person. With the cultivation of piano, I see the same world, but with different eyes.

He’s a pretty prestigious doctor in our city, but he never makes a big show of it. He has this permanent smile on his face. He’s very generous and always lend money to patients, without even expecting them to pay it back. He taught me that you could be very disciplined and hard working but still be very kind.

Tears was puddling in my eyes. Gary came to me, licked my tears up and saying it’s okay. He didn’t speak of course, but by staring into his eyes, I could communicate with him deep into heart, deeper than even my best friend in the real world.

Our school held a special ceremony for my victory. It was like I was a film star winning the Oscar and standing in the spotlight. I delivered speech, saying that I’m the lucky dog whose years of effort had finally paid off, but above all, I owe a lot to the cultivation of my parents, my teachers, and my school.

Personally I commit to the notion that although car function as a symbol of wealth in contemporary society, car ownership is destined to decrease, because of the deteriorating traffic situation and the possible alternatives of cars. First and foremost, the headache of traffic jam is the primary reason for the potential decrease in ownership of cars. In the past decade, the city, whether in developing or developed countries, had witnessed a booming economy, a flourishing civilization, and unfortunately, a ballooning traffic jam. Almost all city dwellers are bothered more or less by traffic jams, which kept them away from being a punctual worker, a punctual date, or a punctual friend. Consider how many people are scolded by their bosses, dumped by their dates, or criticized by their friends, simply because of being late. And why were we late? None of us intended to be a late bird, not to mention plotting it. More often then not, it is the traffic to blame. And what will happen if the victims of traffic jams are hurt again and again? They stop driving cars, or advising their sons to take buses or railways instead of cars. Indeed, this tendency agrees with a principle of economics: when there is excessive supply—that is, more cars than the road can take-there will be a decrease in this supply. Therefore, the result of traffic jam is a gradual decrease in car ownership. Another reason for the decrease in cars, as far as I am concerned, is the improvement in its alternatives. In order to solve the traffic problem, government had implemented a gamut of proposals in the improving conditions of buses, subways, and railways. Take the subway for example. People are encouraged to take subway because of its reasonable price, its better environment, and, more importantly, its punctuality. As more and more people are choosing subways over cars, it is evident that in 20 years, there will be fewer cars on the street. Admittedly, the ever-increasing desire for wealth and fortune will never fade. Since cars, like BMW and VOLVO, unfortunately had become the symbol of social status in modern society. Nevertheless, this case is not universal enough to obscure the tendency of a decreasing in cars. Government interference is not guarantee of a better situation in traffic, but the pay-off would be worth the effort. Overall, with all the dimensions mentioned above incorporated, I strongly vote for the idea that car ownership will decrease in the world.

Should government spend a considerable amount of money on exploration of the universe, as asserted by scientists, scholars, and government officials; or should these money go to more pressing issues of the day, as the poor and the miserable maintains? As for me I commit to the notion that space technology, though impractical at first glance, is of vital importance to humankind, and is therefore worthy of our taxes. The major reason for my propensity for space technology is the potential of scientific research. No matter how the impact it occurred, from the moment of its very advent, scientific research had become the very dictator of our future. It is by these researches that human beings, the only creature with intelligence on earth, began to soar their wings of aspiration. And more importantly, it had indeed done a great good for the humankind. Can you imagine getting access to the world wide web at your desk after rising in the morning were it not for the research of millions of computer ancestors? Similarly, it is highly probable that the great-grandchildren of your great-grandchildren would be enjoying a trip across the “worm hole” while giving thanks secretly to his forefather, you, who voted for the expenditure on scientific research. In a word, the space project enjoys great potential, and should therefore be taken into account in top priority to ensure a better future of mankind. Another reason why I advocate for space technology is that it does good to dwellers on earth not only in the future, but also today,-- at this very hour, at this very minute, at this very second. Without satellites, an Australian could never be able to, say, take a day off, be a couch potato, watch a football game on the opposite side of the planet. Without satellites, never will a Chinese professor travel by air to an academic meeting in America, and still step out of the plane without a trembling hand. Promising as space project is, it would probably not be too sagacious as to completely discard the present issues. Basic problems such as poverty and misery should also be stressed, given their direct affect on our living standard today. Nevertheless, this case is not universal enough to obscure the significance of space project, and to sacrifice the well-being of our descendents. We are human; we have a brain. We are different from animals! Overall, with all of the dimensions mentioned above incorporated, scientific research such as space project should be put to the top priority. It is true that research is not a guarantee of the happy recollections of every child of God on this planet, but the pay-off will be worth the effort.
