      这20个托福听力词组,只有10%的学生能正确理解,快来看看你在这10%里面吗?在平时的备考托福听力中,在对听力词汇的理解中,我们总习惯了“挑大头”:重视难词,忽略“小词”。

      很多同学喜欢把词汇记忆的重点放在字母众多、读来拗口的长词。然而,托福听力考察的不只在于考生是否懂得某些长词的含义,更多的还是体现在对常见词汇的特定用法的考查。

      影响考生听力信息摄取的障碍之一,恰恰是那些看似很懂、没什么生词、听起来马马虎虎,感觉又似懂非懂的听力短语。接下来重庆托福培训学校环球教育就给大家整理了这20个!

      最后,还有2类误区,也是同学们在听力练习中常犯的:

      重视拼写,忽略读音。

      听力词汇不同于阅读,将重点放在读音上,我们才能在考试中及时反应、迅速作答。

      重视单词本身,忽略习语。

      托福听力包含了不少比例的美国习语,虽然题目不会直接对这些习语进行考察,但如果不知道这些词的意思,理解不准确,听起来也是蛮费事的。

      以上就是托福小编给大家整理的全部内容,希望能够给大家一些帮助。
