  托福听力经典加试:

  Title: 去除咖啡因(lecture)

  关于咖啡怎样被 decaffeinated(脱去咖啡因)而不破坏原来味道,然后包装。有一个图。讲 gas 怎样在高温高压下 XX(忘了这个物理名词)。decaffeinate 就是这个原理。咖啡豆经过这个过程到一个罐,然后又经过另一物理过程,就 crystalize(明确)了,可以包装了。

  题目:

  1) Main topic

  2) What is the theory the process uses

  3) Describe the process in the order of happening

  Title: 动物社会的阶级性(lecture)

  动物中的阶级,当王的动物有好处,譬如优先进食、休息区比较大。male 有王,female 也有王。若打架打输了,就会被同族看不起,失去王的地位。有的动物族群上级管下级,下级管再下级,有的族群就一只首领,管所有的成员。

  举了一种狼做例子。但是统治地位不是固定的,比如鹿要是没了鹿角,就失去了统治地位。有时候动物会用些方法巩固地位,比如猴子,但是当 leader 也有缺点,外族来犯时 leader 会非常忙碌承担很多责任。

  Title: 女生论文评语

  (conversation)对话:某女生不明白教授对其论文评语,称自己随便挑了个社会学家理论写论文,许多内容不赞同,因此写得牵强;教授要求女生不应只罗列事实,应写出因果关系;可以博采众家理论,易于理解。 听力讲座:

  听力原文参考:

  Narrator:Listen to a discussion in an environmental policy class.

  Professor:  So, today we’re going to wind up our discussion of alternative energy sources and we’re going to talk about one that often gets overlooked. That source is nuclear fusion as opposed to nuclear fission, which is already discussed. In nuclear fission, the centers of atoms, the nuclei, are broken up. This is the reaction today that drives today’s nuclear-powered stadiums. Nuclear fusion, on the other hand, is pretty much the opposite. It occurs when two atoms collide and then nuclei combine, or fuse, to form a heavier nucleus. This is the reaction that powers the Sun, all stars. So, who can tell me what makes fusion more attractive than fission as an energy source. Julie?

  B. To point out that the Aspero pyramids are different from those found

  at other Norte Chico sites

  C. To explain a belief about Peruvian history that was later challenged

  D. To clarify which of the twenty residential centers in the Norte Chico

  region was the largest

  ...

  听力原文:

  Narrator:Listen to part of a lecture in an archaeology class.

  Professor:

  If I asked you to name an ancient civilization from Peru, many of you might say the Incas. But let’s consider instead the impact of a mysterious culture in north central Peru that thrived in a collection of valleys called the Norte Chico region. Archaeologists have been finding evidence that suggests that Norte Chico is the region where the early inhabitants of South America first began a pivotal transition from being hunters and gatherers and formed a complex and substantially developed society. This would be around 3,000 BCE, well before the Incas even existed. These sites were so advanced that nothing like them could be seen anywhere else in the Americas at the time. There’s no official name for the culture yet, but it seems that its architecture and development had a profound influence on subsequent culture in the Americas for thousands of years afterwards. At each site, archaeologists have identified one or more enormous platform mounds, sort of like rectangular-terraced pyramids, throughout the whole region, people were organized enough to plan and produce these large terraced pyramids, something the Americas have never seen before. And each of the sites apparently served as a residential center, so people lived and worked there. It seems they were farmers.
