Hello大家好,我是舒琪学姐。


我们终于要讲文化大话题下的最后一个分话题——细分的文化话题。细分的文化话题其实有很多种考法,比如语言、传统习俗、旅游,还有我们前面讲过的服装、电影、电视剧都算,所以这其实是一个范围非常广的题。那我们先来看看最近三年考过的题目,一共出现过一次旅游和一次语言。

When we learn a foreign language, all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) are equally important. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

虽然这道题没有直接从文化的角度发问,但是语言属于文化的范畴,我们还是可以从具体的应用场景、对文化的意义的角度,来回答这道题。


这篇文章,我采取了不同场景、需求下分情况讨论的方式,来比较四项能力的重要性。

 

It is argued that equal emphasis should be placed on the four basic language skills, namely listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Although I concede their respective significance, given the considerable learning cost of a foreign language, I think distinctions should be made according to individuals’ needs.

 

For those who require frequent face-to-face communication, for example, journalists, negotiators, entertainment agents, the essential skills are listening and speaking. To guarantee smooth communication, they need to accustom themselves with different accents and speaking speed, so as to understand the counterpart’s words regardless of his or her speaking habits and nationality. As for speaking, one has to manage to convey the intended meaning precisely, or better still, effectively, which requires quick responses, correct pronunciation and intonation, the assistance of eye contact and body language. Reading comprehension and writing skills, such as spelling and grammar are relatively insignificant for them.

 

However, for those whose main job is to absorb and convey information through texts, the focus should be reading and writing. Literacy is peculiarly important for scholars, for whom advanced reading abilities can facilitate learning, comprehension, and synthesis of new knowledge, without which the tasks of reading literature and conducting literature reviews can never be fulfilled. When they strive to get their papers published, writing capabilities are indispensable to result in a completed manuscript, by placing their thoughts on paper and applying correct spelling, citation format, and grammar. For them, listening and speaking are not worth too much dedication and effort.

 

In conclusion, I do not agree that the four competences carry the same weight, for each person has his or her priority according to the linguistic application scenarios.

Nowadays , it has become easier and more affordable for people to visit other countries. Is it a positive or negative development? 

这道题除了“旅游”主题外其实没有给任何限定信息,所以非常好写,我们从思路视频里讲的任一角度切入都可以。我选择的是按对象分段:对旅行者和当地人的影响,各写一段。


With the availability of budget airlines, simplified visa application processes, and intelligent translation services, cross-border travels have become common among many families. Such activities are beneficial for both travellers and local residents.

 

People choose a foreign country as their travel destination for several reasons. Some sightseers prefer visiting exotic architecture and museums, so as to have a taste of different cultures. They sometimes even choose an itinerary including several countries, which allows them to experience different customs, gourmet food, and artistic styles in a single journey. Others prefer to travel huge distances to visit breathtaking natural landscapes, enjoying the spectacular sites to appreciate the value of nature. Whether out of cultural or natural pursuit, such vacations can free them from daily stress, refreshing them and promoting their emotional well-being, because unfamiliar places provide perfect scenarios for a person to wind down.  

 

Some people fear that foreign travellers may harm the local natural and human environment. However, I think regulated tourism is hugely beneficial. First and foremost, it provides abundant job positions for local people, which is especially the case for remote areas. They can serve as couriers or run a B&B service by providing their own houses and cooking local dishes. Moreover, the huge potential profits teach local residents the importance of cultural and ecological protection. The more they can earn from international tourism, the more attention they pay to protect their cultural and natural heritage. Not to mention that ecotourism is enjoying increasing popularity, which helps to finance local environment preservation.   

 

In conclusion, cross-boundary tourism is beneficial to both visitors and the local community, and should therefore be encouraged.

BOOK


大家知道雅思作文里有四项评分标准,其中最容易被大家忽视的就是Lexical resources。


词汇上拿不到高分的情况分为两种。


一类是多样性不足。导致这一种的情况主要是疏于拓展词汇,有些同学认为雅思作文的用词只需要自然、准确即可,这其实是走向了“极简主义”的极端。自然、准确固然重要,但如果不停地重复用词,尤其是不停地重复题目里的词汇,词汇的分数是肯定不会高的。


另一类是准确性不足。这类学生背了很多单词,一到考场就一股脑地堆积上去。却忽视了词汇是否适用于语境、搭配是否正确、词性是否使用恰当等具体运用上的细节。对于第二种情况,词汇得分最多6分,也不会更高了。


要想准确的运用词汇,需要去了解每个单词的拼写、词义、语域、内涵意义、语法形态和搭配,工作量其实是很大的。不仅是处在备考期的同学,包括我们整个英语教学,都一直是重语法而轻词汇,这一偏差这几年才慢慢纠正过来。


针对词汇和语法表达,学姐特意开了一套Mini课。正课部分主要讲词汇和表达;配套的视频我会尽量给大家多讲一些背景知识和例子,帮助大家理解。这样大家就不用机械地去背诵论点,在写作的时候也可以顺着我的讲解思路更好地展开。
