Práctica para la tarea integrada del Writing del TOEFL

TOEFL Writing Practice
La tarea integrada de expresión escrita requiere que leas un pasaje de aproximadamente 250-300 palabras. Luego debes escuchar una conferencia de entre 2 y 2,5 minutos de duración. La conferencia tratará de refutar o compartirá las ideas del pasaje que leíste. Como la tarea es tan específica de este examen, no es fácil encontrar práctica auténtica para el Writing Integrado más allá del material oficial del TOEFL.
 
He escrito y grabado para ti una tarea que replica la parte integrada del Writing del TOEFL y es fiel a la tarea real en extensión, contenido y formato. Lee el pasaje, escucha mi conferencia y sigue las instrucciones para una experiencia (casi) auténtica de práctica escrita para el TOEFL. Para prepararte, sería recomendable que antes leas los consejos de nuestra Magoosher Kate referidos a esta tarea. También puede resultarte útil ver las instrucciones oficiales del Writing Integrado del TOEFL.

Tarea de práctica para el Writing del TOEFL

Instrucciones: Give yourself 3 minutes to read the passage.

The “comics medium” includes newspaper comic strips such as Dennis the Menace and comic books such as Spider-Man. Scholars around the world agree that comics are a uniquely American art form.

The first commercially successful comic strip was Hogan’s Alley, a comic strip from the 1890s. Hogan’s Alley featured the Yellow Kid, the world’s first popular cartoon character. This strip and its character marked the beginning of comics and was American in every respect. Set in a low-income neighborhood in New York City, Hogan’s Alley dealt with the lives of ordinary Americans. It was written and drawn by American cartoonist R.F. Outcault. Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, two famous and influential American publishers, printed the comic strip in their newspapers.

The first popular comic book in the world was also American. Action Comics, a series that is still in print today, was initially released in 1938. It featured Superman, the world’s first superhero. Like Hogan’s Alley, Superman was American-created.

Americans invented comic strips, and Americans have exported their unique art form to the rest of the world. Japanese comics, called manga, were inspired by the comics that Americans brought to Japan after World War II. Popular European comics series such as Smurfs and Asterix are influenced by Disney comic books. Today, American-created Disney comic characters are more popular in Europe than ever.

The comics medium started in America. While it has spread around the world, even comics that aren’t created by Americans have an undeniable American influence. This is why so many art and literature scholars recognize the comic strip as a truly American art form.
