作者:丁梅君 2019-08-23 18:23 来源:武汉编辑


我们大家都知道雅思口语有四项评分标准,其中lexical resource这一项中关于7分的陈述很明确,其中一句话是说“uses vocabulary resource flexibly to discuss a variety of topics” ,那么这里有一个很重要的词“flexibly”, 也就是“灵活地”,很少有学生会关注它,但是其实在雅思的口语评分标准里,flexibility 是7分及以上一个很重要的得分点。

那么,什么是词汇灵活性呢?曾经听过一个笑话,一个正在学习中文的老外问他一个中国朋友,“为什么你们中国人这么暴力?”“啥意思?”“你们特别能打啊。打水打篮球打卡打针打车…” 这真的是学一门外语最常闹的笑话了。其实不是我们很能打,而是“打”这个字在中文里可以用得很灵活。甚至讲一个女明星的脸很能打,其实是在夸她长得美,能艳压他人。这就叫做词汇的灵活性。那么同样,英语也是有词汇灵活性的。那么如何在雅思口语考试里体现词汇灵活性呢?大家需要做到两点,一个是意思上的灵活,第二是词性上的灵活。下面我们通过讲解一些常见小词来理解flexibility这个概念。
