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考生准备了适合PTE听力阅读练习的科学60秒。各位PTE同学可以练习PTE听力中的summarise spoken text和PTE口语中的retell lecture,练习记笔记技巧和复述。废话少说,下面开始:



60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。

Stress can make some people (me included) lose our appetite. Other folks find comfort in food. But such behaviors may actually even out in the long term. Because researchers find that people who change eating patterns when stressed out may actually make up for those not-so-healthy impulses during easier times. So finds a study in the journal Psychological Science.

Volunteers for the study self-identified as either  munchers or skippers. Each person had to interact with another person via video chat, with the intention of meeting them later. After each video interaction participants received a message either stating that their partner decided not to meet them, or that they were excited to meet them. As a control, some participants were told the study had just been canceled. Then the researchers offered ice cream to everyone as much as they wanted.

The munchers who got rejected ate more ice cream than did those in the control group, and the skippers who were rejected ate less. All as you’d expect.

But here’s the twist: Among the participants who received positive feedback, the munchers actually ate less than the control group. And the skippers ate more.

So even stress eaters are sometimes less-eaters. Unless they’re always stressed out.
