托福听力对话中,涉及到一些人物类的话题,其实也是有一些具体的规律的。对于大家来说,掌握这些原则和规律,有利于我们更好的复习积累,那么具体的这些内容是什么?下面小编为大家整理了详细的内容,供大家参考!

  请注意:这个考点不是每个对话当中都会涉及,因为有时候对话中不会有第三者之外的人名出现,若是出现,非常容易被考。

  首先,我们来看这个考点常常以什么样的形式出题。一般情况会有以下几种方式:

  1. Why does the professor/student mention XX(这里通常是人名或某一人物)?

  2. What does the man imply/ say about XX (同上)?

  大家可以看到,这两种问题方式其实与例子考点的方式非常相似,第一种是考所提及内容目的,第二种是所提到内容的细节,所以大家理解时与例子考点一样来理解便可。

  接下来我们来看几个具体的例子来帮助大家理解:

  第一个例子

  ( TPO 22 Conversation 2)

  第三个问题为:What does the man say about his grandmother’s music career?

  A: She studied both classical music and jazz in school.

  B: She planned a career as a jazz musician.

  C: She performed jazz music for most of her career.

  D: She now performs both classical music and jazz.

  这篇对话的主要内容是围绕着学生祖母的音乐会所展开,那么grandmother 这个任务就是个重点,这里的考的大家所提及内容的细节点。好,现在我们来看看关于其music career的细节内容原文是怎样的。

  Student: I see. Ok. Um...I have an idea.

  Professor: Ok.

  Student: Well, as you read in my paper, my grandmother performs classic music.

  Professor: Yes.

  Student: That’s her true love. But for most of her career, she performed jazz. She originally studied to be a classical pianist. But jazz was in its heyday back then, and when she got out of conservatory, she was invited to join a jazz orchestra. And the opportunity was just too good to turn down.

  从原文中我们可以得知关于这个学生祖母的演艺生涯是有一个转折点的,她由之前学习classical pianist转为在jazz orchestra演出,所以这道题是双重考点的结合。因此排除干扰项,我们的答案为C。

  再看一例

  (TPO33 Conversation 1)

  第三个问题:What does the man imply about the custodian?

  A: The custodian is not usually responsible for making repairs.

  B: The custodian did not follow correct procedures.

  C: The custodian needs permission before making repairs.

  D: The custodian had reported the problem earlier.

  我们先在看原文中是怎么提及到这个看似与话题无关的人物custodian的:

  Employee:Well, OK. There’s a couple of things we can do. I can have a custodian take a look at it and see if he can do something.

  Student: Actually, I asked the custodian yesterday to take a look. But he said he couldn’t find anything wrong. He said that some of the other rooms have lost heat also and that if we’d come here you guys would fix it.

  Employee: Oh, he did? That’s weird, because I would have... Well, the custodians themselves are usually supposed to report any problems right away. OK. In that case, then what you need to do is ... Here, fill out this form.

  可以看到,当两人提及这个看门人时,学生提到了关于其的具体细节内容就是已经帮学生检查过了,而他找不到具体问题在哪,所以他让学生来找工作人员。而工作人员对学生所提到的这些内容的所回答的语气则表明了他的态度,他觉得这个看门人这样做很weird, 所以答案选B。

  最后,我们再来看一例

  (TPO 40 Conversation 1)

  第二个问题:Why does the professor mention a student in another class?

  A: To describe an interesting topic for a project

  B: To explain the cause of her initial confusion

  C: To point out that she has not received e-mails from all her students yet

  D: To indicate that has several students doing projects about restaurants

  在原文的最开始部分,老师有提到另外一个学生TOM:

  Professor: Wait. I thought you were gonna come up with a hypothetical business plan for an amusement park. Isn’t that what you emailed me last week? I could’ve sworn...Oh, I’m thinking of Tom from another class. Tom Benson. Sorry. Sorry.

  这道题考的是老师提及这个学生的原因或目的,从原文来看老师以为来找他的这个学生是写友乐园计划的,后来反应过来是自己弄混了,想到了另一个班上学生Tom. 所以答案应该选B,解释老师一开始的困惑。
