 E-Freeway主題介紹

feature of the week

VOA News: The Classroom

英語新聞一向是提升英語閱讀能力與字彙量最佳的工具。原因無他,持續而廣泛的閱讀能最直接的提升閱讀與理解能力。而且因為新聞英語的題材無窮,含蓋了生活經驗的各個層面。讀新聞能遇到的單字,當然也就比「精心設計」的教課書更多、更廣泛、更多樣。但新聞學英語的優點也就是其缺點。常使人困擾的是:「雖然讀過了,但這篇新聞要傳達的重要訊息是什麼?有沒有讀錯了,或是遺漏了重點?」、「單字那麼多,到底哪個單字才是重要的呢?每個字都要記得嗎?」有這兩個疑問的同學,一定要來試試VOA News的The Classroom系列。網站把新聞當成語言素材,設計有字彙、理解等題目,學習者在讀完、聽完新聞後就可以作練習題,直接檢視學習效果。
