上一篇:托福备考第1天——TPO听力材料精听分析(一)

TPO1的第二篇听力是个美术lecture,啊,这个主题,典。

听写并纠错后的结果:

Listen to part of lecture in the contemporary art class.

OK, I'm going to begin this lecture by giving new year you your next to signment assignment. Remember I said that is at some point during the master this semester I wanted you do to adtend the exzipt an exhibit at the very  Fairy Street Gallery in the right and then write about it. Well,  the exzipt exhibit that I want you to attend is coming up, it's already started in fact but it will be at the gallery for the next month, which should give you plenty of time to complete the sossignment this assignment. The name of the artist exhibiting there is Rose Fransor. Fransor's Frantzen. Frantzen's work may be unfamiliar to you since she is a relatetively relatively young artist. But she's got a very unusual style, compared to some of the artists we've looked at this term. But anyway, franson's  Frantzen's style is what you heard she herself calls realistic, impressionism Realistic Impressionism. So you've probably studyied both of these movements, seperately, the seperate movements, Realism and Impressionism in some of your art history courses. Well, who can just sum this these up?

Well, requestionism Impressionism, started in the later 19 century. eh.. Um...The basic compression's impressionist style was very different from earlier styles. It didn't to pick  depict things scenes or models exactly as they looksed. eh... Um...Impression's Impressionist painters tended to apply paint really thickly, and in big brush strokes brushstrokes,  so the texture of the canvas was rough.

Good! What out! What else? What we  were the subject?

Well, a lot of impression's artist impressionist artists painted every day sings  everyday scenes like people on the streets and in cafes a lot of nateresting lots of nature scenes, especially landscapes.

Good! So when you go to the exhibit, I really want you to take a close look at a certain painting, it's a farm scene. And you'll see it right as you entering the gallery. The reason I think this painting is so important is the desdress it stresses the impressionist aspect of franson Frantzen's style. It's an outdoor scene, an every day scene, it's kind of bleak but you can really see those broad russed stroke brushstrokes at blury and blurry lines. The colors are aren't quite realistic the sky is kind of... well, an natural unnatural pinks pinkish of yellow, and fanson's  the fence in the foreground is blue but somehow the overall scene gives an impression of a cold bleak winter day on the a farm, so that's the impression side of her work. No, Oh, and speaking about farms, that reminds me one interesting thing I read about franson Franzten is the when she first move back to iward Iowa after living abroad. She often visited this place in her town called the sellsfarm Sales Barn. And the sellsfarm Sales Barn it was basically this place where the local farmers bought and sell sold their catals cattle, their farm catals animals. And the reason franson Frantzen went there, and she latter later on with would visit other places like dentals was  dance halls, was  to observe people and waste the thing mood the ways that they moved . She really found that this helped to her work that it gave her an understanding of body movements and actions how humans move and stand still, would what their postures were like too. So what about Realism? What are the elements of the realism we should be looking for in franson's Frantzen's work?

eh...Um...Real honest, the piction depictions of the subjection matter, pretty an idealist unidealized stalldone stuff, and pretty everyday subject matter too.

Good! What other One other painting I really want you to look at is up of a young woman surrounded by punkets pumpkins. You will noticed that the woman's face is so realistic looking that is it's almost like a photograph. The woman's nose is a little last in less than perfect and her hairs is kind of messed up, this is realism.

But then the background of painting, this woman with the pumpkins is wrapped in a blanket broad thick brush stroke brushstrokes, and, it's all kinds of thick tzacking  zigzagging brush strokesbrushstrokes and lines, kind of caatical most chaotic almost when you look at it close, and they are vybain vibrant colors, is  There's lots of orange with little hints of electory electric blue picking peeking out. I find Frantzen to be a very eccessible accessible artist. I mean some artists to appreciated it them that we you have to know their life story. But here's a little bit about bro's fanson's like Frantzen. Frantzen's life anyway, she attended art school but was called told by one of her instructors that she was not good at despresion illustration that she should go into agritising advertising instead. So she took agritising advertising class and find out expit classed fine arts classes too, until she was convinced by the head of advertising agency, that her work was really good that she could be an artist.

But of course it's not as easy as that, and so Frantzen had to paint other people's potraist portraits that at places like other artists art fairs just to make money to buy paint for her more series of art work. No matter what, she never stopped painting. And now, Frantzen is doing extremly well, and her works is being shown all over the country. So, I think most of us would be dicouraged if we had to face challenges and difficulties like that, but what's important is the you keep atom at it that you don't give up that was That's what is really important to remember.

做错了第4题。

讲真,这个lecture实在是太长了,我觉得足足听了快15分钟了。

这个听力很容易听了后面,忘记了前面,所以记笔记是必要的,但是我不鼓励记笔记,因为记笔记很容易分心。

我们先看一下他的问题,一般是主旨,然后对里面的部分细节题问,而这次的细节好像都在教授的话里面了。(学生的话不认真听好像并不影响?)

不容易听出来单词和短语:

  • you your (这个真的不容易听出来)
  • assignment (老生常谈的单词了,还是不是特别熟悉,但是已经出现2次了)
  • this semester (这学期)
  • and then write (好的,我听成别的什么了)
  • unidealized (不理想的)(这个单词口语里面很常见吗?)
  • cattle (牛)(我猜大概是个牲畜,但是没猜出来是什么东西)
  • Realistic Impressionism(现实印象派)(听的时候听成了2个单词,这也是为什么我第4题做错了)

不认识的单词:

  • Sales Barn(销售谷仓)
  • depict(描绘)(第一次看到这个)
  • brushstrokes(笔触)(在写svg动画的时候看到过stroke这个单词,用来控制粗细的)
  • bleak(苍凉)(第一次见)
  • the fence (栅栏)(翻译成栅栏,说篱笆更加容易理解)(学了defence居然不知道fence是什么真的有够草的)
  • unidealized (不理想的)
  • zigzagging (曲折)(第一次见)(完全不可能听出来)
  • depictions(描写)depict是描绘,depiction居然是描写
  • art fairs 艺术博览会
  • vibrant 充满活力的
  • hints 暗示(这个是听出来了的,但是我要确认,因为日语里ヒント很常见)
  • peeking 偷看

不熟悉的地道的表达方式:

  • relatively(相对比较而言)
  • it stresses 它强调
  • accessible 易相处的
  • electric 电的

这次虽然做错了一题,并且这个主题也不熟悉,但是老样子,给我的感觉这篇听力是来考察记忆力的,而非听力。

完全听懂的话,缺一点点单词量,但是整体来讲不是特别难。

难度的话,我认为是中等。

主要是要是考场上走神就完蛋了,这篇必然会全错。(草,考试前一天一定要睡好啊)
