國立臺灣大學
大家好!3/5的多益說寫成績剛出,很幸運地達到B2門檻,在準備過程中有些心得想跟大家分享:) 先附上成績:
megapx
前言:以前從沒準備過多益說寫,所以基本上是從零開始。首先去TOEIC官網了解題型,然後再從版上蒐集學習資源,斷斷續續準備了一個月(中間準備到覺得很煩休息快一週XD)。 一、打底 總共分成5個部分,共11題。因為對所有題型都不熟,所以第一週是打底週,我會每天練習一個部分,或是把一個部分練到一定程度後,才接著練下個部分。熟悉的過程大致是(PART 1以外): (1) 去Gwen Tv的live show看大概3、4次模考的解題,記下答題架構 (2) 自己練個幾題,找出答題常出現的問題 (3) 去Gwen Tv的live show看(2)練的題目的解題 (4) 記下可以用的單字:這點很重要,PART2和PART5有點吃字彙量,但是做多了就會發現常用的單字其實就那幾個。 *網路上有很多模板,但建議將模板當成補充或參考性質,仍然要自己跑過一次上面的流程,這樣記憶會更深刻,東西也才會真的會內化! 二、答題方式 PART 1 朗誦段落(45秒準備、45秒朗讀) 1. 發音:注意 th音、a音(要拉長)和重音 2. 語調:建議有flow,簡單來說是高低起伏,可以搭配手勢。推薦去聽Gwen的唸法! 3. 斷句:要斷在對的地方 4. 準備時間:大概可以唸兩次,建議把人名/公司名/街道名,少見的單字多唸幾次,並找出要斷句的地方。 PART 2 描述圖片(45秒準備、30秒回答) 1. 本題的重點在於描述動作,所以建議多用動詞,不要一直描述外表。 2. 若是圖片出現三人以下,可以地點、外表、動作各一句;如果出現三人以上,可以參考以下模板: The picture is taken in ____________. In the foreground of the picture, there are 數字 people. All of them are 動作. One of them is 動作或外表. One of them is 動作或外表. One of them is 動作或外表. In the background, there several of them are動作. They are all 形容詞. 3. 練習過程中蒐集的字彙: *地點 1. 室內 Construction site工地、supermarket超市、office辦公室、kitchen廚房、room房間、lab實驗室、grassland草原、lounge交誼廳、grocery store超市/雜貨店 2. 室外 Outside of a building、outdoors *職業 Cashier收銀員、scientist科學家、clerk店員 *物品 Stool圓凳、cash desk收銀台、counter櫃台、monitor螢幕、files文件夾、tray托盤、microscope顯微鏡、chessboard棋盤、cable纜線、fitting room試衣間、pot鍋、pan平底鍋、stove火爐、cutting board砧板、baking sheet烤盤、silverware廚具、sink 水槽、canopy遮陽傘、palm tree棕梠樹、suitcase行李箱、shopping basket購物藍、card machine刷卡機、remote control遙控器、several piles of 成堆的….、cabinet木櫃、 *衣著 Safety vest救生背心、sweater毛衣、sweat pants排汗褲、sweat shirt排汗衫、yoga pants瑜珈褲、exercise clothes運動衫、athletic shoes運動鞋、leggings(一定是複數)、leather jacket皮外套、apron圍裙 *動詞 stand站、sit、lean on counter靠在櫃檯…、hold sth. 握、crouch down 蹲低、bend over彎腰、sit with leg crossed腳交叉坐著、check sth. 檢查、documenting on papers紀錄、talk to each other交談、check out結帳、stand in the line排隊、looking at sth. 看、face each other看著對方、show 展示、use用、discuss討論、spraying water 灑水、pick up an item、scroll his/her phone滑手機、play chess玩西洋棋、try on試穿、ask for suggestions尋求建議、grill在烤架上烤、pan-fry 煎、broil烤、stir攪拌、smile微笑、eat grass吃草、load sth. into a car把….放進車裡、get in/off a car 上/下車prepare for a trip、take out/unload拿出、get a discount折扣、hit the gym去健身房、be worn out(衣服)壞掉、be out of fashion/date退流行、carry 提著、reach for an item拿東西、push a shopping cart推購物車、talk on the phone講電話、hand over給出←→receive接收、check in 登記住房、rest one’s arms on the table把手臂放在桌上、make gestures to sb. 做手勢、 PART 3 街頭訪問(3秒準備,Q5-6皆15秒回答、Q7是30秒回答) 1. 很看臨場反應,只建議多練,久了就能夠自然而然回答了。 2. 建議準備一些故事回答Q7,例如平常上班很忙,出去玩只想休息放鬆、小時候很害羞內向之類的。這題的故事和PART5可以共用XDD PART 4 回答問題 (Q8-9是15秒回答、Q10是30秒回答) 1. 文法最重要,盡量多用不同的文法(主被動式)來豐富答案。 2. 有以下常考的題型: (1) 在哪裡/何時舉行(通常Q8) It will take place/be held at 地點. It starts at 時間. (2) 問第一個行程(通常Q8) The first schedule is the ______ session led by 人. (3) 行程被刪除(通常Q9) No, I’m afraid that you have the wrong information.(通常問話者會給錯誤資訊,所以開頭都是這句) 原本只有一個行程:There was an interview with 人. However, it has been cancelled now. 原本有兩個以上行程:There were supposed to be___, but one of them has been cancelled. (4) 出現兩次的人名/主題(通常Q10) 範例一:There will be two sessions related to 主題. From 時to時, there is a session tilted/called_____. The session will be led by 人名. And then, from時to時, 人名 will talk about ______. 範例二:There will two events. From時to時, there will be a welcome speech given by the CEO. Soon after that, 人名 from HR Department will give an introduction of company management. It will takes about an hour. (5) 在某時間離開,是否會錯過任何活動(通常Q10) No, you won’t. The closing session will finish at 4 p.m., so you can leave at 5 p.m. Don’t worry about that. (6)拖時間專用 a. 開頭:let me see. / let me take a look at the schedule. b. 結尾:please keep that information in mind. / please don’t forget it. PART 5 表達意見(45秒準備,60秒回答) 1. 模板 開頭:There is no black and white answer to this topic.(如果覺得這句很冗也可以不講) However, I tend to agree/disagree with the statement. There are several reasons to support my opinion. 本體:First of all,_______. Secondly,_________. 結尾:That's why I think so. 2. 常用單字 形容詞:productive/energetic/relaxed/relaxing/efficient/exhausted/be burned out/cooperative/depressed/comfortable 動詞:improve/experience/interact with/cooperate with 片語:build connections with sb./relieve or get rid of stress/refresh oneself/increase or decrease productivity/take a break/give sb. a boost(提神)/suffer from serious fatigue *建議多蒐集職場或科技單字 三、準備資源: 1. 多益口說寫作TOEIC SW 190分 準備技巧 練習資源分享(
這部影片也有分享準備方式,建議大家開始準備前先看過一遍,會對整個考試比較有概念。 2. Gwen Tv
口說能夠達標的第一功臣絕對是這個頻道!按照前面的步驟熟悉題型後,建議從TOEIC SPEAKING ACTUAL TEST的播放清單練習題目(2021年7月以後開始採行新制,可以優先練,但是在那之前的模擬題可以在新制都練完後再練),然後再去聽live session檢討。在聽的過程中,也可以感受Gwen講英文的語調和發音。此外,Gwen每個月底都會有一次線上直播,想知道自己的程度也可以參加給最後的給回饋環節,雖然我沒參加過,但聽過他給別人意見,蠻中肯的。 3. Toeic Tests - 4 Skills
如果Gwen的題目練到差不多,也可以試試看這個頻道的。附有參考擬答,可以把好的單字或片語記下來! 四、正式考試建議: 1. 記得喝水(?):在唸第一題的時候發生了一件我從沒預料到的事,嘴!巴!超!乾! 甚至導致我唸的時候不得不打斷吞個口水QQ,不然根本唸不下去,所以建議大家考試前要確保自己嘴巴不乾(?) 2. 慢慢講,把發音和語調掌握好 3. 盡量不要卡住 #寫 我用的書是「多益口說與寫作大破解Ⅱ最新增訂版」,就是把書信的部分記下來,也可去voicetube網站看書信系列的文章,我的推薦如下: 1. 【職場英文】英文書信、電子郵件不知如何下筆?英文書信格式懶人包分享!
2. 【職場英文】快速抓住 HR 的心!英文求職信(cover letter)這樣寫就對了!
3. 轉職潮爆發!四步驟教你寫英文自我推薦信
用範例解釋寫信邏輯: Dear Ms. Little,(注意對方的稱呼) I hope this letter finds you well.(開頭先問候對方) I am writing in response to your inquiry regarding my opinion on the fair. (表明寫信目的) Firstly, I would like to express my appreciation for all the hard work and dedication that your team has put into organizing this event. The staff were all highly professional and very helpful. (不要一開始就直接批評對方,先說一句好話,接著再開始講不滿之處) However, I have a small reservation about the location of the fair.(第一個不滿的地方) It was quite far from the bus stops and MRT station, which made it somewhat inconvenient for me. (一句細節) I would be grateful if you could take this into consideration and choose a more accessible location for the fair in the future.(第一個建議) Besides, I think that the number of companies that participated in this event could have been increased(第二個不滿的地方). It was difficult for me to find job opportunities that were relevant to my profession.(一句細節) Therefore, I suggest that you consider inviting more companies to participate in the fair next year. (第二個建議) I hope this has explained my thoughts well./Thank you for taking the time to read my feedback.(結尾) Sincerely yours, Stephanie King 基本上不管是什麼信,一開頭都是先問候、說明寫信目的,然後再詳細說明情況(題目會給指引),接著結尾。寫作的部分沒太多技巧,強烈建議是練打字速度,然後考試時不要按到insert!!我就是按到然後字一直被吃掉,還要請監考人員來看看發生什麼事QQ。一般是建議書信寫120字左右,獨立寫作要寫到350字。字數應該是評分要點(在寫作內容普通的情況下XDD),因為自認為寫的普普,但成績超乎預期。 大概是這樣,提供給有需要的人參考!有問題我也會盡量回答 :) 另外,我也發了一篇聽讀的準備文,有需要也可以看看~
