转折题看似比较难，搞的考生摸不着头脑，其实你要抓住其内在的规律便可迎刃而解。所谓转折，代表意思的改变，往往答案关键线索之处在转折词的后面。当你听到原文中出现显性转折词but（四级听力出现频率最高，考生应注意其在句子里面的发音连读和爆破）, or , otherwise , however , anyhow 等，及隐性如：In fact, to tell the truth, frankly speaking, to be honest, sounds great, I’d love to, I’m afraid to, That’s great等，就需对前面的信息180度大转弯，再来判断正确答案。
W: Did you visit the Television Tower when you had your vacation in Shanghai last summer?
M: I couldn’t make it last June. But I finally visited it two months later. I plan to visit it again sometime next year.
Q: What do we learn about the man?
A) He saw the big tower he visited on TV .
B) He has visited the TV tower twice.
C) He has visited the TV tower once.
D) He will visit the TV tower in June.
【预测】 选项是关于谁去了TV tower没有，去过几次的干扰。
M: How did you like yesterday’s play?
W: Generally speaking, it was quite good. The part of the secretary was played wonderfully, but I think the man who played the boss was too dramatic to be realistic.
Q: How does the woman feel about the man?
A) He played his part quite well. B) He was not dramatic enough.
C) He performed better than the secretary D) He exaggerated his part.
【解析】 关于整个play女士觉得quite good，不要在这里上当。but 后面的是关键，“the boss”的角色太戏剧化，不像是真的，说明表演过头。所以选D。其他选项都相反。
