  老托福听力93篇难度虽然比现在的机考要简单一些, 不过,用这个难度训练已经足够了。而且是跟真题最相似的,因为它根本就是真题~

  大家要做的就是, 每天跟读1-2篇。1-2个小时吧。 模仿听力原文的语音语调以及断句(如果能背下来, 那当然更好)。(跟读的时候要照着文本) 需要注意的是,刚开始最好是一句一暂停的模仿,不要通篇模仿,否则很难跟上。

  然后,第二天要做的事情是把前一天模仿好的文章录下来(电脑-附件-录音机),然后你自己听一听,和原文对比一下。就能找到自己的不足。

  如此坚持,2-4周一定见效。此法既练了口语,又同时练习了听力。

  Well, if there are no more questions, I would like to continue our discussion of human evolution by looking at Homo erectus, the earliest of our ancestors who stood upright. Homo erectus lived about one and a half million years ago and was given that name because, at the time the first fossil was discovered, it represented the first primate to stand upright. There is evidence now that Homo erectus had sharper mental skills than their predecessors. They constructed the first standardized tool for hunting and butchering. They created an extraordinary stone implement, a large teardrop-shaped hand ax whose design and symmetry reveal a keen sense of aesthetics. This detailing, along with the ax's utilitarian value, strongly suggests that Homo erectus had the ability to conceive of and execute a design to specification. In addition, Homo erectus was the first hominid to use fire. This discovery enticed them to cook meat, which they could flavor and keep from spilling by flame, and which paleontologists now believe may have given them a new disease. Some fossil bones of Homo erectus are grossly deformed, and paleontologists have noted that this condition is similar to that found in people today who have been exposed to chronic overdoses of vitamin A. Apparently Homo erectus first got this disease by eating large amounts of animal liver.
