剑桥大学出版社在去年发布雅思真题集Cambridge IELTS 10 (剑10)后,紧接着今年三月份率先在大陆地区发布剑桥雅思11,跟以往不同的是,这次分A类与G类分两册发行,对于G类考生无疑是一个福音。作为雅思备考资料的第一选择,相信大家对于这本书对于我们写作备考该如何利用充满了好奇,在此,我们为大家奉上学术类写作部分的独家解析。


Task 1总结与解析:

The table below shows the numbers of visitors toAshdown Museum during they year before and the year after it was refurbished.The charts show the result of surveys asking visitors how satisfied they werewith their visit, during the same two periods.



对于剑桥雅思11的小作文内容,笔者感到很失望:

1. 题型单一

从上表可以看出,四次考试全部是数据类,没有地图与流程图,现在的考试情况是非数据类占到全年考试的四分之一,所以剑桥11并不能很好的帮助考生应对小作文的整体备考。综合剑桥1到11,地图题一共才出现了两次,但是2015年一年地图题就考察了8次,但是,好消息是随着考试回忆的完善,我们100留学也有完整的地图流程图的回忆与高分范文提供给各位考生,好好利用这些真题有针对性的备考才是关键。


2. 没有提供一篇考官范文

综合以往的剑桥真题集,这是非常不正常的现象,四套题目,一篇超过7分的考生范文都没有,更没有考官范文提供给考生,不知道是因为考官太忙,太懒,还是为何?尽管我们100留学的老师会为大家提供独家的高分范文。以往的剑桥雅思考官范文也存在少量低级错误,如拼写与时态,剑十第二套小作文范文中把Denmark拼错为Demark等等,需要考生取其精华,去其糟粕。


Task 2总结与解析:


TEST1政府类OpinionGovernments should spend money on railways rather than roads. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
TEST2环境类OpinionSome people claim that not enough of the waste from homes is recycled. They say that the only way to increase recycling is for governments to make it a legal requirement. To what extent do you think laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste?
TEST3教育类DiscussSome people say that the only reason for learning a foreign language is in order to travel to or work in a foreign country. Others say that these are not the only reasons why someone should learn a foreign language. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
TEST4政府类Discuss
Many governments think that economic progress is their most important goal. Some people, however, think that other types of progress are equally important for a country. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

1. 多是2008年之前的旧题或变式

Test 4的大作文题目,国家的经济发展和其他项目的发展,哪个更重要。这一个题目可是2008年考过的原题,不过是稍微转换了一下提问方式,换汤不换药。我们提醒下考生,不要以为剑桥上的题目就不会被考到,就不用看了,比如2015年考了两次gap year,都是剑桥的原题,今年2016年第一场考试的大作文就是剑10第三套大作文题目的原题变式。

2. 话题常规,题型单一

四场考试,有两场围绕政府类话题,一场是垃圾回收,一场是外语学习,话题都是常规话题。题型方面,两场opinion,两场Discuss,都是对于议论文写作的考察,没有出现Report说明文题型。

综上所述,剑桥11对于A类雅思考试的写作整体备考有一定的指导意义,但是并没有太多的干货内容,参考性不强,望考生对于写作部分谨慎选择使用。
