PTE Re-tell Lecture 真实讲座练习题: 数字时代真实性的诡计

在PTE中,无论是Summarise Spoken Text 还是 Re-tell Lecture的考题大都是从真实的讲座或者演讲中截取的中间经常经常夹杂很多不同的环境音.很多同学都反映有时未必是听不懂,而是听不到. 鉴于此,墨尔本悉尼文波雅思PTE专门为大家总结了真实讲座的PTE练习音频,相比新闻音频来说,整体更加接近PTE考试的真题,内容方面,我们也会为大家提供考试中存在的近似题,最近我们会持续更新,敬请期待!


This man, known to world as the crying Indian, helped usher in the modern environmental movement. In 1970, Cody appeared in a commercial for the non-profit, keep America beautiful. Behind the backdrops of smokestacks, belching cars and litter, the Cherokee and Cody canoed to a polluted river bed where a single tear rolled down his cheek. They were just a couple of problems, the tear was fake, as was Cody’s identity as an authentic Indian. Decades later, we are still being sold on the idea of authenticity. From footways to best-selling memoirs, the performance of authenticity remains undaunted by post-modernism and our digital age of virtual avatars. We want to keep it real, but how do we know what the real thing is. Most people react to authenticity the way judge Potter Stewer thought about the term obscenity. Stewer couldn’t define the term legally, but he said famously that he knew it when he saw it. I think we can do better than Stewer’s pragmatism. First of all, we can approach a cultural objects uniqueness in time and space. Second of all, we can examine the horizontal expectations an audience brings to the work of culture. By doing this, we can, I think, get a little closer to the genuine article by revealing the artifice of authenticity.
