关于在公众号推送阅读练习的说明;1997年passage one原文

我之前一直说在复试结束,一切尘埃落定的时候回给大家在公众号上给大家带来更多的干货,说到做到,从4月1日开始给大家推送关于英语阅读的内容。(我的公众号:考研上岸助手)

最开始,我会以1997-2004年的阅读题目为素材,让大家从四月份开始进入阅读复习的一个准备期,主要目的是希望大家在学习单词的基础上,练习长难句,并慢慢的学习对一整段内容的翻译,把握段落的主旨。之所以选择1997-2004年的题目,是因为这些年份的题目和最新几年的命题方式的差距相对来说比较大,不太适合大家去研究近些年份出题者的套路,但是作为考研真题来说,这些题目的质量又很高,能够很好地作为大家练习长难句的素材,所以大家在买英语真题的时候,直接买05年以后的题就行了,05年以前的题我在公众号带着大家做练习。

我目前想的方式是这样的:

我会提前把需要阅读的原文分享给大家,然后我从4月1号开始,每天推送一篇文章的一个段落的解析,解析会包括“重点单词、长难句解析、段落的翻译”

大家需要做的是:提前把我将要推送的内容自己先疏通一遍,然后再去看每日推送的解析。

注意:

1、1997-2004年的阅读练习,大家不要去纠结正确率,主要目的是大家要开始培养一个做阅读的好的习惯,大家学会自己分解长难句,自己学会对生词的查漏补缺,学着去如何精翻一篇文章。

2、四月份大家的主要任务依旧背单词,同时着手长难句的练习

下面这个微信群没加的小伙伴可以加一下,我会把一些相关的PDF或Word文件发送到群里,方便大家保存。


今天的先把4月1日要推送文章的内容给到大家,是1997年阅读部分的passage one,这篇文章有三个段落,我会有三天的解析推送!

1997年阅读 Passage one

It was 3: 45 in the morning when the vote was finally taken. After six months of arguing and final 16 hours of hot parliamentary debates, Australia’s Northern Territory became the first legal authority in the world to allow doctors to take the lives of incurably ill patients who wish to die. The measure passed by the convincing vote of 15 to 10. Almost immediately word flashed on the Internet and was picked up, half a world away, by John Hofsess, executive director of the Right to Die Society of Canada. He sent it on via the group’s on-line service, Death NET. Says Hofsess:“We posted bulletins all day long, because of course this isn’t just something that happened in Australia. It’s world history.”(4月1日推送这个段落的解析)

The full import may take a while to sink in. The NT Rights of the Terminally Ill law has left physicians and citizens alike trying to deal with its moral and practical implications. Some have breathed sighs of relief, others, including churches, right-to-life groups and the Australian Medical Association, bitterly attacked the bill and the haste of its passage. But the tide is unlikely to turn back. In Australia —where an aging population, life-extending technology and changing community attitudes have all played their part—other states are going to consider making a similar law to deal with euthanasia. In the US and Canada, where the right-to-die movement is gathering strength, observers are waiting for the dominoes to start falling.(4月2日推送这个段落的解析)

Under the new Northern Territory law, an adult patient can request death—probably by a deadly injection or pill—to put an end to suffering. The patient must be diagnosed as terminally ill by two doctors. After a “cooling off” period of seven days, the patient can sign a certificate of request. After 48 hours the wish for death can be met. For Lloyd Nickson, a 54-year-old Darwin resident suffering from lung cancer, the NT Rights of Terminally Ill law means he can get on with living without the haunting fear of his suffering: a terrifying death from his breathing condition. “I’m not afraid of dying from a spiritual point of view, but what I was afraid of was how I’d go, because I’ve watched people die in the hospital fighting for oxygen and clawing at their masks, ”he says.(4月3日推送这个段落的解析)
