每日听力 | VOA常速-U.S. and ECOWAS Renew Cooperation

小芳老师2018-04-02 13:27:45

大学时候尚无如此之多的VOA素材,只有全国出名的德生收音机,那种收音机收音特别贵,但是收音效果并不是特别好,往往需要爬到楼顶或墙上来找信号。


那个时候收音播放比较集中时段是早上六点到八点,夏天起床听还可以接受,但是到了冬天起床就成了大难题,很多时候直接趴在被窝里,昏睡过去。但是为了通过英语专业四级考试,只有逼迫自己艰难起床,爬到楼顶找信号,从滋滋啦啦的声音中听出VOA播音员的只字片语。


一开始听是心情是非常郁闷的。首先不说信号不清晰的问题,即使找到方向,由于播音员的语速太快,往往是只能听到几个破碎的单词,没有几个句子能完整听懂。这样只能通过几个单词串到一起连蒙带猜的去揣测意思,好听一点说就是一种朦胧的美,好像听懂点什么,但是又好像什么都没有听懂。那种没有成就感的听力日子,现在想想也是极其打击的。


无奈,转投赵老师(大学最亲爱的老师)。“老师,我怎么什么都听不懂啊?” 老实说:“你听了多久?” 我说:“我都听力1个周啦!!!”我从老师眼中看到了无耐。


“坚持!!!再坚持!!! 既然现在做不到,将来终有一天会看到成效。”找老师还是鼓励。


当然,光有鼓励是没有用的,赵老师还分析道:“1. 广播中的新闻术语或表达方式,要搞清楚;2. 听力练习太少,听力能力不够,就像小学生去做高中题目,肯定不会;3. 没有掌握方法,要精听与泛听结合,每天要拿出一份新闻仔细听,听懂为止,其他的听力材料可以当成磨耳朵。总之,要坚持听和用心听,再加科学方法,肯可以。


现在,以上方法的有效性,亘古不变!对小编给大家推送的VOA新闻,如果按照以下步骤认真听,假以时日,听力水平绝对让人刮目相看。


1 不看文本  泛听 2-3遍

2 看文本       听2-3遍

3 搞清楚文本中不认识的单词和不理解句子

4 看文本       听2-3遍

5 不看文本    听2-3 遍

6 听写(可选)


任何语言学习都需要付出努力,而且是付出努力就能够成功,所以鼓励大家多多坚持,多多加油,每天进步一点点,时间一长就可以发生质的飞跃。


注:VOA 分为VOA Standard English 和VOA Special English,一个是标准语速的材料,另一个是语速慢和词汇量都较低听力材料。学习方法都一样,大家根据自己的水平选择!
