跟读小建议:

1.在听音频之前,自己可以试着读一遍文章;

2.然后听音频,看看哪里没有读对,重点看单词读音和语音现象; 

3.然后就同步跟着音频读(跟读就是你的声音和音频一样同步)。语音语调不好都没有关系,全都可以通过模仿搞定。只要读得遍数够多,一定可以被自己得声音帅醒,加油!

柯本表达了他对一篇关于他和妻子科特妮·洛芙(Courtney Love)的杂志报道的愤怒。1992年《名利场》杂志爆料两人在洛芙怀孕期间吸毒。

他写到:“我非常爱我的妻子和即将出生的女儿,以至于我不能让任何人的不好言论毁掉我们的生活。”

Cobain killed himself in 1994 and Nirvana broke up. Many people still mourn the musician more than 20 years later. His letter is expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000.
