PTE听力&写作关键-SST真题解析之-House Mice

PTE考79分渐渐成为趋势的情况下,听力和写作也日益成为目的PTE79分考生的拦路虎。而其中同时给听力和写作贡献分数的SST就成为大家最痛苦的题型。今天墨尔本悉尼霍巴特阿德莱德文波PTE培训学校就给各位做一个示范如何写好SST。今天我们挑的是PTE真题机经里的一篇House Mice的文章:

According to new research, house mice (Mus musculus) are ideal biomarkers of human settlement as they tend to stow away in crates or on ships that end up going where people go.

Using mice as a proxy for human movement can add to what is already known through archaeological data and answer important questions in areas where there is a lack of artifacts, Searle said.

Where people go, so do mice, often stowing away in carts of hay or on ships. Despite a natural range of just 100 meters (109 yards) and an evolutionary base near Pakistan, the house mouse has managed to colonize every continent, which makes it a useful tool for researchers like Searle.

Previous research conducted by Searle at the University of York supported the theory that Australian mice originated in the British Isles and probably came over with convicts shipped there to colonize the continent in the late 18th and 19th centuries.

In the Viking study, he and his fellow researchers in Iceland, Denmark and Sweden took it a step further, using ancient mouse DNA collected from archaeological sites dating from the 10th to 12th centuries, as well as modern mice.

He is hoping to do just that in his next project, which involves tracking the migration of mice and other species, including plants, across the Indian Ocean, from South Asia to East Africa.

 

文波PTE的答案:

House mice, which have managed to colonize every continent, are optimal biomarkers of human settlement as they may hide in crates or on ships that end up going wherever people go just like what Australian mice have experienced and using them as a proxy for human movement can add to our knowledge and answer questions where there is a lack of artifacts.

 

解析:

SST考到79分的关键是内容匹配度。在保证词汇拼写和语法基础上,50-70字里面尽可能多的涵盖原文信息才可以得到最高分。本文就高度凝练的用一句话表达了文中的含义。当然真实考试中,没有文本,我们不太可能写的这么完整。大家一方面提高听力,提高记笔记能力,另外如何用凝练的句式表达复杂的含义就变得极其重要了。建议大家可以看看文波的语法长难句总结。有需要的同学,可以加我们的微信公众号:wenbo-tv。留言:文波英语语法长难句。谢谢
