【雅思閱讀】總是感覺「時間不夠」嗎?學會這7個雅思閱讀技巧,幫你一次抓重點、拿高分

準備雅思閱讀的時候許多考生們最害怕的事情就是題目寫不完,明明再多個10分鐘就可以完成了,卻偏偏因為時間不夠的緣故只好作罷,而且越在意時間所剩無幾就會越感到不能自控的焦躁,越焦躁就越影響到你的作答表現,最後反而得不償失。

其實,掌控作答的時間有可以學習的技巧,這些雅思閱讀考試技巧筆者今天會一一介紹,推薦有「時間不夠」問題的考生可以看看。

 

總是感覺「時間不夠」嗎?學會這7個雅思閱讀技巧,幫你一次抓重點、拿高分

 

 

1. 直接看第一道題目

 

不用浪費時間讀完整篇文章或是每一段的首句話,也不要閱讀其他題目。

許多人看文章時習慣從開頭第一句話閱讀,這也是普通人閱讀文章時的常見作法。不過,一般文章與學術文章應當使用不同的閱讀技巧,正如學術領域中閱讀期刊報告時的重點在於擷取所需要關鍵的資料、了解作者的核心思想,而非將長篇大論逐字看完。

準備雅思考試也是同樣,回答的重點在於是否能正確對應到題幹的疑問,所以只需要取得文章中的關鍵資訊就可以,大可不必要花時間從頭看到尾。

因為雅思紙本考試不像托福機考一樣有顯示順序的限制,

所以推薦大家直接看第一道題目,然後將題目大意記在

腦中,之後帶著題目回到文章閱讀。

 

 

  2. 不要停頓

 

一旦你認為自己無法回答出正確答案,不要浪費時間在想不出來的題目上頭,直接跳下一題。

建議大家給自己預設30秒的時限,如果一道題目已經苦思了30秒還沒有頭緒的話,那麼建議果斷放棄先做下一題,尤其是單字題絕對不要花太多時間在自己沒有背過的單字上琢磨。

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. 記住答題的線索都在段落中

 

因此沒有必要來回從頭掃視文章,這純屬於沒事找事做。

第一點說過準備雅思閱讀的重點在於對症下藥,從文章中找到題目需要的資訊

依照雅思考試的文章習慣,關於題目所需要的重要資訊絕大部分散佈在文章段落中,而不會出現在開頭,開頭通常是整篇文章的主旨,作者用首段的開場白來帶出整篇文章的方向,使讀者明白接下來文章的大致內容。

比較具體的細節會出現在各個段落,因此考生沒有必要每一次都從首段開始尋找關鍵資訊,考試技巧是學會使用題目關鍵字回到相應的段落中尋找線索。

 

 

  4. 對於人名與數字只要快速看過就好

 

其他文章部分則使用正常閱讀速度。

這並不是說人名與數字不重要,相反的,在雅思閱讀文章中出現人名與數字往往意味著考試重點,而這邊說的快速看過重點在於,筆記的時候考生可以用代號或縮寫來記錄人名與數字,重要的是考生得知道這個人做過什麼、這些數字代表什麼等,將人名與數字跟具體事蹟連結

 

 

 

 

5. 最後再回答「文章大意題」

 

不論是問你整篇文章的主旨、某一個段落的大意,你最好在比較了解整篇文章內容的時候再回答,這樣可以增加你的正確率。

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   6. 善用輔助工具

 

在家裡練習的時候,可以用手機設置計數器倒數每2分鐘響,然後訓練自己在2分鐘之內完成一題

訓練自己習慣IELTS正式考的時間限制,有計時器的提醒可以幫你營造緊張的時間,如果你可以訓練自己在2分鐘內完成一篇文章中的題組,那麼到了雅思正式考試時也可以游刃有餘。

 

 

 

 

 

7. 做完全程很重要

 

對於新手而言,在追求時間的掌控力之前,更要緊的是練習的時候一定要做完全程,把目標設定在做完全部的題目而不管要花多少時間,等到習慣閱讀雅思文章與作答方式之後,第二步才是訓練在有限的時間內回答。

READING PASSAGE 3

You should spend about 20 minutes on Questions 28-40, which are based on Reading Passage 3 below.

 

 

Psychology Case Study: “Give and Take”, a strategy employed by Harry Potter, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and Revenge.

 

Similar writing techniques can be found in thousands of fictions and movies in the world. Sometimes writers and authors use identical and familiar patterns so that they can retain a certain number of viewers and audiences. Sometimes they do this is because it is just a part of our lives and we simply cannot live without it. As a saying goes, drama is life and life is drama. It is through portrayal of the similar patterns of life that we finally grasp the meaning of life. One of the arrangement is”life is all about give and take”, as can be seen in many famous works, such as Harry Potter, the Goblet of fire, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and U.S. famous sitcom, Revenge. You certainly cannot underestimate the power of” give and take”. Even several bestsellers discuss this phenomenon, such as Give and Take and Rich Dad Poor Dad. “Give and you shall receive”. Let’s take a look at how it is used in both eastern and western fictions.

 

In one of the popular U.S. sitcoms, Revenge, we can also find the traces of “give and take” in several scenes. The heroine Emily Thornes is actual Amanda Clarke. She comes to the town of the Hamptons to get revenge on those who wronged her farther, so she exchanges her name and acts as Emily Thornes. Her first step is to buy the beach house, actually her childhood house. The beach house is belonged to Michael and Lydia. Lydia is cheating on Michael, so according to the prenup, she will get nothing in the divorce. But the point is there are multiple people eyeing on the beach house, according to another heroine, Victoria Grayson.

 

During the bidding war, what Emily does not know is that Victoria outbids her at a cash offering, and Nolan outbids Victoria. Things progress to a surprising end. The deed of the house is already in Emily’s name. According to Nolan Ross, he wants to return the favor that Emily’s father once did to him. Her father, David was the one who believed in him so that Nolan could start a successful company. However, Nolan gets himself in a very big trouble in the very end of season two. In the opening of season three, Nolan is released out of the jail and gets picked up by Emily, who drives him to a great mansion, saying that the house is his. She feels that it is the right thing to do. She is just returning the favor to Nolan Ross.

 

In Harry Potter, The Goblet of Fire, three tasks will be given to those champions. Harry is not qualified to attend the contest, but his name is unusually in the goblet of fire. Harry has already known the first task is dragons. Perhaps due to the fact that Harry has a kind heart or Harry is a giver, he informs the only champion who does not know that the first task is dragons. Givers are the ones who help other without thinking too much or whether they will get something in return.

 

According to the bestseller Give and Take, there are three types, takers, givers and matchers. Matchers are the ones who are in the middle. They value a fair return. Takers are the ones who take the most, and it is assumed that takers should be the ones who win the most. Contrary to what readers might think, givers are actually ultimate winner, since others are benefited by them before. They are willing to return the favors to givers. As the story progresses, Harry has a hard time figuring out the second task. Cedric says to Harry” I owe you one for telling me about the dragons.” He is returning the favor to Harry.

 

In The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the portrayal of give-and-take can also be found in the relationship between Guan Yu and Cao Cao. Guan Yu is such a great warrior that even Cao Cao really appreciates him. Guan Yu even has something that Lu Bu clearly lacks. Guan Yu is a man of integrity and loyalty, whereas Lu Bu is a womanizer who also betrays his godfather Ding Yang. Because of this, Cao Cao wants him even more. He tries his best to please Guan Yu. He gives him lots of treasures and Red Hare, the kind of horse that every warrior wants. Dong Zhuo once uses Rad Hare to woo Lu Bu. Loyalty earns the appreciation and trust from Cao Cao, whereas disloyalty makes Lu Bu beheaded. Guan Yu’s loyalty makes him leave the camp of Cao Cao once treated him, but he appreciate how Cao Cao once treated him. Guan Yu leaves with all the gifts returned to Cao Cao and is forgiven by Cao Cao even though he slays six generals of Cao Cao en route at five passes.

 

As the story progresses to Huarong where the fate of Cao Cao is doomed, Kong Ming knows beforehand that Guan Yu will eventually set Cao Cao free. Kong Ming and Liu Bei already have an understanding that is actually the time for Guan Yu to return the favor once given by Cao Cao.

 

All three great works have all been linked to give-and-take. Perhaps as a human being, it is just a part of our life, and sometimes there are reasons for certain arrangements in those works.
