  【点评】 

  今年的大学英语六级考试题型改革后,翻译题从之前的单句汉译英“换装”为段落汉译英,这对于考生来说,无疑是一个更大的挑战。很多考生一看到整段的汉译英题目就头疼,因为他们对于这个题目太陌生了。从单句到段落的翻译,标志着国家对于考生英语水平的要求已经提高到了一个全新的层面。段落翻译考查的是考生的英语综合水平。

  但从真题的出题角度来看,这次考试还是对考生相当得仁慈,考题要比考试样章中的题目来得简单得多。整篇翻译题就像是一篇四级作文,属于观点对立型的。主要是针对学校是否应该将信息技术这门课作为学生的必修课。其中阐述了两类人群的不同观点,这像极了我们四级考试作文题。比作文题还要简单的是,段落翻译已经给出了考生写作的思想,考生只需将其翻译成英文即可。

  从真题的出题内容来看,这次的翻译题也没有考那些考生不熟悉的话题,而是对考生特别熟悉的信息技术进行了考查。而且,整篇翻译原文中并没有特别长的句子和特别难的表达。相信考生肯定可以从容应对的。
