VAN ALLEN 站长对WORLD NEWS的评论
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!
