Now, if you're taking the TOEFL, you should know what everything means.
It should be not... "advent" means, like, think about "advance", something is progressing.
"Tackle" means, basically, "fight".
"Threat", something that's dangerous to you or could be harmful to you.
But anything else, you really should know all these words if you're ready for the TOEFL. Okay?
So what did I do here? "The advent of information"--"the increase" in...or "the going up", in this case "advances", "information technology", "communication".
那么我要怎么做呢？把句子分割成小部分： "The advent of information"可以写成增加，或者用向上的箭头表示，在这里指的是“发展，前进”；还有 "information technology"和 "communication"
"New threat for cops", "civil protection agencies", what are they? They're cops, they are police, "cops to fight".
"New threat for cops", "civil protection agencies"，这是什么呢？他们是警察；还有"cops to fight"。
Everything here in a short little thing like this, this takes you ten seconds to write.
Meanwhile, you can continue listening and go on to other things. Okay?
Now, again, I will say this a thousand times if I have to.
You need to practice this, this is not easy to do quickly.
You need to do this and continue listening at the same time.
In the speaking and writing sections especially, you're listening for specific things that may play into the question that's coming. Right?
You can practice all these.
Now, if you know www.ted.com, it's a good website, there are lots of lectures, CNN also.
You can go get listening sections, you can listen to news or you can listen to lectures, but they also have transcripts, okay?
So you can practice your note taking skills, listen two, three, four times, as many times as you need.
Take notes, then look at the transcripts and compare your notes to the transcripts, how close did you come?
And believe me, the more you do it, the better you'll get at it, just like anything else.
It's a skill at the end of the day, and it's a very important skill if you want to succeed on the TOEFL tests. Okay?
Now, if you go to www.engvid.com, I'll give you a few more examples like this, I'll give you some sentences like this,
and you'll try to match them to the correct long sentence and vice versa.
So go to www.engvid.com for extra practice and questions.
