2013年商务英语(BEC)口语考试得分要点

时间:2015-03-31   栏目:商务英语学习  点击:

口语考试不是百分制的,而是分成五项给分,Pronunciation,GrammarandVocabulary,DiscourseManagement,CommunicationSkills,GlobalAchievement.每项按5分为满分计,其中前四项成绩由坐在旁边的考官给出,最后一项成绩由主考官给出。

其中的DiscourseManagement一项,是我们考生同学的薄弱环节,按照中文的表述惯,我们很少使用连词类来表示上下句或句群之间的关系,但是英文在长篇表述的时候很在意连接词的应用,用连接词来表示承上启下,比如在第二部分的mini-presentation中,很多同学开头的陈述就不清楚,没有清晰的思路,建议考生可以按照以下几种句式开头:

Whendoing....,itisundoubtedlyimportantthat.....Ihaveseveralreasons,first.....

Whendoing.....differentpeoplehavedifferentchoices.Somepeoplewillsay....but

WhatIthinkisimportantis......

Whendoing.....thefirstthingthatcrossesmymindis......

Inorderto.....someissueshavetobeconsidered,forexample,......

然后,要用清晰的first,second,inaddition等表示顺序的词来请听者注意。

在中间理由的陈述中,也要使用因果、转折、递进等连词,来表述句子之间的逻辑关系,比如这样一道考题:

Whatisimportantwhen.....

Planninghealthandsafetytrainingforemployees?

Selectingtrainingcontents

Staffinvolvement

建议大家这样说:

Whenplanninghealthandsafetytrainingforemployees,selectingtrainingcontentsisabsolutelyessential.Becausefirst,ifwedon'tchoosethecontentsthatarecompatiblewiththeproductionrequirements,thetrainingwillbeworthless.Second,ifthecontentswechoosecannotmatchtheneedsofstaffworking,theywillhavenoideaaboutsafetyatthesite.Therefore,weshouldalsocontemplatestaffinvolvement,sincetheyarethepersonswhoworkatthesiteonadailybasis,theycanensurewhatkindoftrainingtheydoneed.
