WORLD NEWS听写PK大赛第96期(2011年1月16日)

楼主:八月捕蝉 日期: 回贴:5 浏览:

VAN ALLEN 站长引言:听写训练是提高听力最为有效的方式之一,UNSV.COM 发布的 VOA Special English 专题节目资料中,几乎都同时提供节目文稿和配套的MP3录音,是绝佳的听写训练资料。尤其是 World News 专题,内容涵盖今日世界最新时事报道,很多英语爱好者每天听 World News 了解世界大事。同时,World News 专题节目也是大多数高校英语专业学生的必听资料。

然而,World News 专题却只有节目MP3录音,没有配套的标准文本。很多人觉得这很遗憾,但事实上,它巧妙地为我们提供了一次更好地学习和互动的机会——参与World News 听写 PK大赛活动。此项赛事,要求所有参赛者提交自己的原创听写稿。正因为没有“标准答案”可供参考,所以World News 听写 PK大赛才具可行性。举办World News听写PK大赛旨在帮助网友加强学习交流,提高学习兴趣,丰富网站活动,欢迎各位英语爱好者积极参与!

八月捕蝉发言:首先对大家能积极参与这个栏目,我代表网站表示深深的感谢! 对于大家的建议,我虚心采纳。我的总结稿里面也有很多不合适的地方,大家如果有意见,欢迎发帖,我虚心接受并改正。 我与大家一样,不过是一名英语爱好者,参加评比的当中不乏高手,有的水平远远在我之上。我也曾经在英语学习的过程中饱受着酸甜苦辣! 其实评比只是鼓励一种形式,只要大家喜欢这个栏目,我会努力在以后的工作中,更加细心,把栏目做得更好。

He did not say who the Hizbullah led opposition would support

这句话什么意思啊,觉得语法不对啊?主要是那个led opposition 是什么意思啊,听半天也不明白。

如果没有led opposition,可以理解为“他没有表示真主党将会支持谁”
