启德考培小编为大家分享的最易混淆的托福写作词汇的全部内容,希望对参加考试的考生有所帮助.

  众所周知,托福考试是一个语言考试。而在托福考试的写作部分中,语言考试的特征尤为明显。特别是托福考试对于中国考生来说。在托福写作中,一定要注意自己的写作风格。今天启德考培小编为大家分享托福写作最易混淆的词汇,以供参考。

  1、Original: Bill Gates gives a definite answer that college education does count.

  Revised: Bill Gates gave a definitive answer: college education does count.

  Definite意思是“明确的”、“一定的”,指意思明确,不会误解;definitive也是“明确”的意思,但往往指“权威性、最后决定的”。此话出自比尔?盖茨之口,体现权威性,故将definite改为definitive。

  2、Original: …people may attend a university or college for various reasons...

  Revised: …people attend university or college for a multitude of reasons...

  此处将various改为短语a multitude of更为正式,体现人们读大学的原因很多。

  3、Original: The kinds of education that we got on school are formal and intense ones...

  Revised: The kinds of education that we receive at school is formal and of ten times very intense.

  不必用kinds of education,直接用education(教育)即可;“受教育”不同get,改为receive;“在学校”不必用at school;把one去掉,用often times very intense指出学校教育常常是非常严格的。

  4、Original: They can foster their interests in some fields to make life more colorful and meaningful.

  Revised: They can even pick up hobbies to make life more colorful and enjoyable.

  Foster their interests是“培养兴趣”,此处用pick up hobbies(开始各种各样的兴趣)更为合适;不同的兴趣是我们生活的调味剂,使我们的生活多姿多彩,乐趣无穷,把meaningful换成enjoyable,与colorful搭配更合适。

  5、Original: Needless to say, more employment means more income and less idle life, so that people can enjoy a better life and make investment in their future.

  Revised: Needless to say, more employment means income and less idle time, so that people can enjoy a better life and invest in their own futures.

  把idle life改为idle time更为合适,表示“闲散时间”;make investment可改为动词invest,与and前的动词enjoy词性一致;人们各自有自己的未来,故将in their future改为in their own futures。

  6、Original: Another important factor that contributes to the extension of life expectancy is the development of medical science.

  Revised: Another important factor that contributes to the rise in life expectancy is the development of medical science.

  “人的寿命的延长”可以表示为life extension,但是如果用life expectancy,则要用the increase of 或the rise in life expectancy。

  7、Original: the growth of life span.

  Revised: the rise in/increase of life span.

  Life span意思是“寿命”,growth指“生长,增长”,“寿命的延长”用growth不合适,life span“寿命的延长”可以用rise in/increase of/extension of.

  8、Original: energy saving

  Revised: energy efficiency

  Energy saving一般作定语,此处名词短语“节能”最好用energy efficiency。

  9、Original: with the increasing complicatedness of the job profile

  Revised: with the increasing complexity of the modern jor profile

  Complicatedness意思是“错综复杂”,但是这种错综复杂是有逻辑的;complexity也是“复杂”的意思,但这种复杂是杂乱无辜的,现代的工作情况用complexity较为合适。

  10、Original: Such experience will difinitely be helpful in children'slater life.

  Revised: Such experience will benefit them later in life.

  Helpful是“提供帮助”的意思,而benefit是“使…受益”。这里作者想说的是孩子将来的人生会受益于这样的经历,用benefit合适,因为这样的经历不一定能对孩子将来的人生提供什么具体的帮助。
