托福外文刊物《The New York Times》词汇学习(二)

2018-05-02 13:28:10来源:网络

  相信很多同学在备考托福的过程中,也会选择一些外文刊物来进行练习。今天新东方在线为大家推荐《The New York Times》,并整理了其中的词汇内容,进行解析。

  Rabbi Michael Levy, president of Yad Ha- Chazakah, the Jewish Disability Empowerment Center, also acknowledged that “transition to a world without sight is far from easy.” But he insisted, “Blindness does not cut me off from the world.” He cited skillful use of a cane, travel devices that tell him where he is and what is around him and periodicals available in real time by telephone among myriad other gadgets that “see”for him.

  Annika Ariel, a blind student double-majoring in English and political science at Amherst College, wrote that her problems are not with her blindness but rather from people’s attitudes that depict the blind as helpless and dependent. She said she travels independently, uses assistive technologies to complete her work as efficiently as others who can see, and excels academically and socially.

  Equally inspiring was the response of Mark Riccobono, president of the National Federation of the Blind, who became legally blind at age 5 and lost all useful vision to glaucoma at 14.

  词汇学习:

  Excel v优于,胜过 excellent动词形式ex-外+cell细胞+ent形容词后缀,细胞中最外的一个,想象精子和卵细胞结合,只有最优秀那一个才能胜利

  Inspire v.激励,鼓励 spire-词根呼吸,来自词汇pore气孔,有孔就能呼吸,in里面,被激励或鼓励以后,深吸一口气,精神满满。名词inspiration,despite de表否定,无法呼吸所以叫 v绝望

  “I once let blindness make me a passenger in my own life,” he wrote. “That changed when I encountered a vast net- work of other blind people who convinced me that blindness did not define me, who taught me nonvisual ways to handle every- day and not-so-everyday tasks, and encouraged me to expect more of myself.

  “I am now a successful blind man married to a blind woman, living a rich, full life with her and our three children” while heading a membership organization that helps tens of thousands of blind people. He met his wife, who was born blind, when they were both students at the University of Wisconsin.

  Mr. Riccobono, 40, said in an interview that he grew up trying to hide his blindness until he met people at the federation who taught him that “it was respectable to be blind” and that he could do things as effectively as sighted people do.

  词汇学习:

  Define v定义,下结论 =de表加强+fine音变自finish, 下结论通常在结束以后,下定义,作结论
