Be n侦探 带你新思维看托福 隔壁的bobo老司机用一贯欢脱的风格把ETS workshop口语部分的精华内容分享给了大家，轮到我来讲讲阅读，风格还是一贯的……一本正经ಠ_ಠ 没办法，不管是托福还是雅思阅读, students don’t get to read for fun, but are expected to read to learn. 什么事情最好能时不时回到初衷去看本质。托福考试的目的是什么？自然是测试学生的英语语言能力，但是有一个同等重要甚至更重要的目的往往会被忽略，那就是让学生通过备考锻炼并掌握未来进入外国院校开始学业后所需要用到的必备技能。听说读写能力哪项对academic setting中的学习最为基础和重要，答案不言而喻：阅读。我上阅读课时把技巧的传授放在重中之重，同时一定会向学生强调不应该把这些技巧理解为考试技巧，而应该是阅读技巧，也就是说到了国外进入了学府，为了学业的顺利和成功，这些技巧必须继续常伴左右在阅读中如影随形。 ETS Workshop 讲座把托福的阅读能力分为了三个层次，the ability to comprehend, to learn, and to make inferences，分别对应到三大类的题型： ETSWork-shopCategor 1 Basic Comprehension Questions: 1. Vocabulary questions2. Sentence simplification questions3. Factual information questions4. Negative information questions ETSWork-shopCategor 2 Reading to Learn Questions1. Prose summary questions2.

接着，我们毕竟是在总结“托福单词”。一些比较简单的词，am, is, are, can, should, the, apple 等一律删除。标准比较简单，先从搜索引擎的 stop words（大概575）开始，其中包含这样东东：’ll , ’t , nt , which , where , able , about 等；接着，删除朗文定义词汇（大概2000个）；最后，删除高考词汇（大概3400个，实际上只有680个单词有价值，需要的同学请到文末联系我们）。
