托福听力必背词汇——词组和表达

时间:2017-07-13 点击:

托福考的是学术英语,同时托福是为非母语考生设计的,因此托福中基本上不会出现俚语性的词汇和表达。

 

但是,托福听力中还是会出现不少口语化的习惯性表达,毕竟我们的听力就是别人的口语,在口语中出现一些惯用表达也是很正常的。

 

这些表达的用法通常比较地道,可能是我们在教科书中学不到的。

 

这些表达通常由简单的词汇组成,拆开每个单词都认识,但放在一起就不一定知道准确的意思了。

 

掌握这些词组对于你准确理解听力中说话者的意思至关重要,当然,如果你能在自己的口语中使用它们就更棒了!

 

但请注意,这些表达基本不可以用在作文中。
