PTE听力练习题26 - Weirdest Rainbow

PTE考生目前最大的问题之一就是练习题缺乏。除了有限的基本官方书(PLUS,Testbuilder, OG)之外,就没有题了。很多英语基础不是很扎实的同学很难找到练习材料。墨尔本文波雅思PTE培训学校专门为墨尔本,悉尼PTE考生准备了PTE练习的lecture 93篇。各位PTE同学可以练习阅读,练习记笔记技巧,可以练习复述,甚至可以练习describe image。废话少说,下面开始:


When I was in British Columbia last July working at the department’s archaeological dig, I saw the weirdest rainbow. At first I couldn’t believe my eyes because the bands of color I saw weren’t in a single half circle arc across the sky. Instead, I saw a full circle of rainbow hues hanging in the sky just above the sea. Inside the circle there was a big white disc and above the circle there was another round band of colors forming a halo. There were curved legs of multicolored light coming off the sides of the circles. It was an incredible sight. I ran back to our main camp and tried to get our cook to come with me to see my fantastic find before it disappeared. He just laughed at my excited story and told me that what I saw was noting special, just some “sun dogs.” He said I’d be sure to see many more before I left. And sure enough, I did. When I got back from the dig, I asked Professor Clark about the “sun dogs,” and she’s going to tell us more about them.
