说到“段子”，也许大家第一时间想到的是网络上的那些段子手，比如像薛之谦这样的有颜值又有头脑的段子大神最近更是红的发紫啊。不过，在托福口语考试中，大家也要努力把自己训练成“段子手”。当然，这里的“段子”指的是应对独立口语题的万能素材啦。“段子”背的好，不仅能在语言的用词和流利度上斩获高分，同时还能做到胸有成竹，在考场上保持好的状态。今天，小麦老师为大家盘点一下那些口语考试中的“超万能口语段子”。一、超万能的“英特网” 科技利弊是托福口语考试中的“常客”。据小麦老师不完全统计，在2015-2016年的托福口语考试中，科技利弊相关的题目总共出现了超过11次之多，平均算下来，几乎每个月的考试里都必考一题。由此可见准备一个科技类的万能段子是多么重要。但是呢，既然是科技的利与弊，当然要一分为二的看待，这里给大家分享两个老师自己考试常用的段子。【积极意义】People often say that internet is a double-blade sword（双刃剑）, but I think its benefits outweigh its shortcomings. （利大于弊）First of all, Internet can save us a lot of time. For example, each morning when I get up from the bed , the first thing I do is to boost my computer and watch the latest news on YouTube while eating my breakfast. I don’t need to wait in front of the TV or go to buy that day’s newspaper, it’s so convenient.In addition, Internet can help me with my schoolwork. Every time when I come across difficult questions, I would take a picture of the questions and upload them on the Internet, then there would be lots of experts to help. It can improve my study efficiency dramatically. （134字）【消极意义】People often say that internet is a double-blade sword, but I think its shortcomings outweigh its benefits.First of all, Internet is flooded with （充斥着）all kinds of information which is a huge distraction for me. For example, every time when I boost my computer to write my schoolwork, there would be some advertisements and news pop out（跳出来）, I would be easily distracted by these information and forget my schoolwork.Besides, Internet is harmful for people’s health. Nowadays, many people spend a big part of their time on the internet. However, staring at the screen for a long time may cause near-sight and other disorders. （106字）适用真题：2015.1.10 With the development of technology, some people believe students will study on the internet in the future, while others believe that students should still study in buildings.

For example, I have a friend whose name is Jacky. He is really strong in history. Everytime when I hang out with him he would tell me lots of knowledge in history. There is a famous saying goes like that the world is like a book, those who don’t make friends read only one page.（世界是一本书，那些不交朋友的人只能读一页。） Besides, friends are the people who can give us a hand when we are in trouble. People often say friendship can multiply happiness and divide sorrow（友谊能使欢乐加倍，使忧伤减半。）.（101字）适用真题：2015.2.1 Which of the following do you think is the most effective way of studying?
