新旧托福分数对比

 

新旧托福有什么区别?新托福是一种上机考试,基于互联网的新托福考试于2006年开始在世界范围内推广。旧托福是纸版托福,只有在美国才有。

 

托福考试改革后,试题和难点发生了很大的变化,旧的托福试题对新托福考试基本上没有参考价值。有些学生可能会觉得他们的语法环节比较薄弱,但他们找不到合适的题目来练习,用旧托福实体来巩固自己的语法知识。与新托福相比,旧托福很简单。如果准备时间足够,你可以用一些旧托福练手。如果语法需要巩固,使用旧托福也是一个很好的选择。但是如果你手头有新托福练习题目,你最好用新托福的题目来练习。

 

这是老托福的题目。你可以感受一下,看看旧托福和新托福有什么区别。

 

 The first flying vertebrates were true reptiles in which one of the fingers of the front limbs became very elongated, providing support for a flap of stretched skin that served as a wing. These were the pterosaurs, literally the “winged lizards.“ The earliest pterosaurs arose near the end of the Triassic period of the Mesozoic Era, some 70 million years before the first known fossils of true birds occur, and they presumably dominated the skies until they were eventually displaced by birds. Like the dinosaurs, some the pterosaurs became gigantic; the largest fossil discovered is of an individual that had a wingspan of 50 feet or more, larger than many airplanes. These flying reptiles had large, tooth-filled jaws, but their bodies were small and probably without the necessary powerful muscles for sustained wing movement. They must have been expert gliders, not skillful fliers, relying on wind power for their locomotion.

 

Birds, despite sharing common reptilian ancestors with pterosaurs, evolved quite separately and have been much more successful in their dominance of the air. They are an example of a common theme in evolution, the more or less parallel development of different types of body structure and function for the same reason — in this case, for flight. Although the fossil record, as always, is not complete enough to determine definitively the evolutionary lineage of the birds or in as much detail as one would like, it is better in this case than for many other animal groups. That is because of the unusual preservation in a limestone quarry in southern Germany of Archaeopteryx, a fossil that many have called the link between dinosaurs and birds. Indeed, had it not been for the superb preservation of these fossils, they might well have been classified as dinosaurs. They have the skull and teeth of a reptile as well as a bony tail, but in the line-grained limestone in which these fossils occur there are delicate impressions of feathers and fine details of bone structure that make it clear that Archaeopteryx was a bird. All birds living today, from the great condors of the Andes to the tiniest wrens, trace their origin back to the Mesozoic dinosaurs.
