英语精听不错的法子

知乎一位美女小姐姐在bilibili上面录制了一期关于雅思精听的视频,虽说小姐姐讲的是针对雅思的精听,但对于其他考试,或者想要针对性地练习听力的小伙伴们也是非常不错的方法,这里将视频的内容整理了一下。知乎地址在这里:https://www.zhihu.com/question/23923058 前提条件: 对于考雅思的小伙伴们至少把王陆语料库听过一两遍并且70%单词认识基础之上再来练习精听,不然你在精听的过程变成了背新单词的过程了,那就失去了精听本身的意义了。 练习精听的时候需要准备不同颜色的笔和不同的本子。 精听的步骤很重要,一步步跟着做,不要急不要跳跃: 首先播放一句听力,点击暂停,暂停后的一秒钟反应全句内容,养成习惯 用笔写下整句话,一字不落越快越好。光听不写=原地踏步!!! 对于暂时没听出来的部分,反复播放,在笔记本上用各种方法,比如可以用类似发音的单词或者直接音标,甚至中文帮忙的... more...

仔细体验以往经历的感受,收货很大

现在的我变得没有自信,不知所往,好像在茫茫的雾气之中迷失了自我一样。于是我学着写下自己以往成功的案例,可大可小,体验和感受这种感觉。 曾经大学时候的《数学物理方法》每堂课都认真的听讲,每堂课好像都听懂了,但又好像不知道讲的什么的混沌感觉,直到学期末要考试的时候才真正慌了神,这可怎么办?已经认真的听课做习题了,却感觉还是在挂科的边缘,没办法,还是要学啊。在临考前的头一天晚上,已经记不清是当时的学习方法上有了什么新的突破?还是知识的积累到了一定程度,自然的融会贯通了?总之,大彻大悟了一般,对此科目有了足够的自信。第二天信心十足的上了考场,98分高分通过。 刘若英的《后来》MV不知道多少人看过,在此之前,我一直都看不懂,但却非常喜欢这种拍摄的感觉,在不久前KTV里面唱歌的时候再次看到这个MV,我竟然秒懂了,天哪,这就是成长的力量吗? 这一次的经历给我的感觉是,积累的力量和方法的重要性。 后来报了... more...

睁大眼睛看好来,哈哈

今天遇到一件很好笑的事情,一直看到一个词觉得很奇怪,不懂它的翻译是怎么来的。 It‘s worth nothing that...当时粘贴到词典里查了一下,满心狐疑,不理解为什么翻译成值得一提的啊?明明是不值一提吧?但当时觉得可能是他们特殊的历史文化原因吧,也就没有深究,让自己记住就好了。 后来我又遇到一次,One thing worth nothing is...我一看,好家伙又遇到你了,词典粘贴过去一查,意思果然是“值得注意的一件事是...”实在是心里别扭啊,我就到度娘那里诉苦问一下,谁知正好百度知道里面也有一位仁兄有同样的疑问,我内心一阵狂喜,果然这个是有问题的啊,别人也一样会觉得奇怪。 但当我看到答案的时候,噗嗤一下笑喷了,没错,一直以来我都没有看清楚,人家明明是It is worth noting that.../One thing worth noting is... 好吧,只... more...

记忆单词原来也可以是一件轻松的事情

作为80后的一代,当年的学习环境只有课堂和书店里面的磁带等资料。我还记得捧着分上中下系列的语法书啃了好久,初中的时候英语学的还很轻松,到了高中由于词汇量没有及时的增加,阅读成了一大头疼的事情,本来引以为傲的一科就这样从此一蹶不振,也就够及格线吧。 到如今英语学习了十几年,从初中开始接触abc,经历了高中,到大学的四六级,一直不间断的学习,却始终是个哑巴英语爱好者,单词量也是少的可怜。每每想到这十几年的英语学习光阴,不觉可惜。 如今的孩子们有了很好的资源,可以接触到各种好的老师讲课,比如新东方的很多老师讲的都不错,也可以直接网络上跟外国人聊天。 最近我又重启了恶补英语的进程,看到有一篇文章里面别人推荐的曲根老师讲单词,觉得不错,但无奈没坚持下来,后来又接触到奇文老师讲解的词根词缀记忆法,感觉比较对自己的路子,听他讲解的时候好像比自己记单词轻松了好多。再后来接触到了赵铁夫老师讲授英语单词的来源... more...
