从近年来真题基础口译考试考情剖析

来源:上外培训网   发布时间:2015-04-03   作者:

  上午听力考试难度适中,听力选材切合基础口译主题,听力教程出题率高,初步统计约为32分原题。

  Spot dictation:

  本次考试Spot dictation原文来自2014年4月 VOA Special English Health Report,这已经是自2011年以来来第8次spot dictation取材来自VOA Special English report, 这也为以后学习基口的学生指明了学习的方向。Spot dictation总体难度比今年4月略微下降,但篇幅长度略有增加。从所填词汇来看,数字仍旧是考察重点,整体而言,所填词汇整体难度不大,略有难度的词汇在我们的常规班听力授课讲义基本都覆盖到。

  注:VOA Special English做精听的材料。精听不仅是从根本上提高听力能力的唯一方法,VOA special English的难度和材料都十分适合学生们做精听。近年来,基口考试更具国际化趋势,其取材也不再局限于本土化。

  10月6日下午基础口译的spot dictation 选自美国之音慢速英语健康报道,是关于科学家们探索节奏治愈的能力。

  American researchers say contact with rhythm may help people with neurological diseases lead a better life. The researchers reported the finding after they carried out experiments with a famous rock and roll musician.

  Scientists say that timing has a major influence on how the human brain works, and when the timing is off, so is the processing of information.

  The new study is the work of researchers at the University of California, San Francisco. They examined the brain of Mickey Hart. He is a former member of the rock group The Grateful Dead. For the study, he was asked to play electronic drums as a part of a computer game.

  Doctor Adam Gazzaley is a neurologist. He says the experiments combined neuroscience with modern technology - gaming and the virtual world.

  "So we couple these three different worlds together, use them to inform. each other and create really the most powerful real time neural activity visualizer that anyone has ever seen," he said.

  Mickey Hart wore a special headgear with sensors as he played the drums. In another room, scientists watched how his brain reacted to the orderly beat or rhythm. They watched how his eyes move, they measured changes in his blood flow and body temperature.

  All this information showed his brain's activity in real-time. Mickey Hart says, he is interested in knowing how his brain, what he calls "the master clock" works.

  "What is that power, how do we use it, how to we repeat and how can we make a better world using the tools that we have been given. This super organism, there is nothing better than this, this master clock," said Hart.

  Researcher Adam Gazzaley says he wanted to see if rhythm could perhaps repair damaged connections in a patient's brain.

  "So the idea is that if we can teach the brain how to become a better timing machine, better rhythmically, that your brain will perform. at a more optimal level and it will translate into how you interact with the world around you and lead to a better quality of life," he said.

  Mickey Hart has been interested in the power of music for many year. In the 1980s, he used music to connect with his grandmother who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She had not spoken in a year. When he played the drums, she spoke his name, and started talking again.

  Scientists say their goal is to use rhythm training and even video games to improve brain function. They believe that when the brain operates efficiently, people enjoy a better quality of life.
