翻译研讨:2008.12.18 EDUCATION REPORT 托福与雅思考试比较

楼主:Webmaster 日期: 回贴:6 浏览:

(VAN ALLEN 站长注:由于 Miss Hour 正在全力准备CET考试,故今天的 EDUCATION REPORT 由我代译,如有不妥,欢迎指正! )

This is the VOA Special English EDUCATION REPORT.

这是VOA Special English教育报道。

For the past two weeks, we have talked about the SAT and ACT college admissions tests, and the GRE for graduate school. This week in our Foreign Student Series, we move on to English language tests.

前两周,我们谈论了SAT和ACT高校录取考试,以及研究生院校GRE考试。这周,在“外国学生系列”里,我们继续谈“英语语言考试”。

Most American colleges and universities accept one or both of the two major tests. One is the Test of English as a Foreign Language, known as the TOEFL. The other is the International English Language Testing System, or IELTS.

很多美国高等院校承认一门或者同时承认两门重要考试,一门是“以英语作为外语考试”,就是人们熟知的托福考试。另一门是“ 国际英语语言考试体系”,即雅思考试。

The TOEFL is given in one hundred eighty countries, the competing IELTS is given in one hundred twenty-one countries. One million people each year take the TOEFL, says the Tom Ewing, a spokesman for the Educational Testing Service. Same with the IELTS says Beryl Meiron, the executive director of IELTS International. She says two thousand colleges and universities in the United States now recognize the IELTS. Schools might accept it only for undergraduate or graduate admission, or both.

托福考试覆盖180个国家,与它竞争的雅思考试覆盖121个国家。美国教育考试中心发言人Tom Ewing说,每年有100万人参加托福考试。雅思国际执行总裁Beryl Meiron说,每年参加雅思考试的人数与托福考试持平。现在,美国有两千所高等院校承认雅思考试。这些院校或者只是本科,或者只是研究生录取认可雅思考试,或者都予以认可。

The IELTS is a paper test while the TOEFL is given on paper only in places where a computer test is unavailable. The TOEFL paper test costs one hundred fifty dollars. It tests reading, listening and writing. A separate test of spoken English costs one hundred twenty-five dollars. The computer version is called the TOEFL iBT or Internet-Based Test. The price is different in each country, but generally falls between one hundred fifty and two hundred dollars.

雅思考试是纸考,而托福考试只在没有机考条件的地方实行纸考。托福纸考费用是150美元,测试阅读,听力和写作。与纸考分开的英语口语考试费用是125美元。机考又称托福iBT或托福网上考试,这种考试价格在每个国家不尽相同,但总体在150~200美元之间浮动。

The TOEFL iBT and the IELTS both measure all four language skills -- listening, reading, writing and speaking. But with the IELTS, the speaking test is done separately as a live interview. You speak with an examiner who is certified in ESOL -- English for Speakers of Other Languages. Every one takes the same speaking and listening tests, but there is a choice of two kinds of reading and writing tests, either academic or general training.

托福机考和雅思考试都衡量全部四项语言技能——听力,阅读,写作,口语。但雅思口语考试采用分开的现场面试形式。考生和通过ESOL认证的考官交谈。每个考生都参加内容相同的听说考试,但有两类阅读和写作考试供选择,学术类或通用培训类。

IELTS International says the test measures true-to-life ability to communicate in English for education, immigration, and employment. Institutions in Britain and Australia jointly developed it. The cost is different in each country, but Beryl Meiron says the price in local currency is generally comparable to about one hundred sixty dollars. The IELTS website is ielts.org. The TOEFL website is toefl.org.

雅思国际称,雅思考试为留学,移民和雇员之需,衡量考生实际运用英语交流的能力。雅思考试由英国和澳大利亚的几家机构联合开发,每个国家考试的费用不尽相同。但Beryl Meiron说,考试本国货币价格大致相当于160美元。雅思考试的网址是ielts.org,托福考试的网址是 toefl.org
