SWT관련해서 간단한팁을 드립니다. 저도 사실 이번이 첫시험이라 이게 맞는 방법인지는 확실하진 않습니다.
시험볼때 SWT 기존기출에서 하나도 안나와서 당황했었는데 방금 찾아보니 3월신기출이엇네요ㅠㅠ
문장을 읽고 이해할려고 하니 이미 4분이상이 지나가버렸어요ㅠㅠ
포기하는 마음으로 paraphrase없이 중요하다고 생각하는 부분만 연결시켰습니다.
라이팅이 86점 나온걸로보아 PTE가 원하는건 복잡한 문장구조나 고급어휘가 아닌 오류없이 중요한 내용을 캐치해야하는것 같아요.
When the Rosetta Stone was discovered in 1799, the carved characters that covered its surface were quickly copied. Printers ink was applied to the Stone and white paper was laid over it. When the paper was removed, it revealed an exact copy of the textbut in reverse. Since then, many copies or facsimiles have been made using a variety of materials. Inevitably, the surface of the Stone accumulated many layers of material left over from these activities, despite attempts to remove any residue. Once on display, the grease from many thousands of human hands eager to touch the Stone added to the problem.
An opportunity for investigation and cleaning the Rosetta Stone arose when this famous object was made the centerpiece of the Cracking Codes exhibition at The British Museum in 1999. When work commenced to remove all but the original, ancient material, the stone was black with white lettering. As treatment progressed, the different substances uncovered were analyzed. Grease from human handling, a coating of carnauba wax from the early 1800s and printers ink from 1799 were cleaned away using cotton wool swabs and liniment of soap, white spirit, acetone and purified water. Finally, white paint in the text, applied in 1981, which had been left in place until now as a protective coating, was removed with cotton swabs and purified water. A small square at the bottom left corner of the face of the Stone was left untouched to show the darkened wax and the white infill.
