第一百一十八句

剑桥大学的学者说她将不再在其中一所学院任教,因为她说,那里的porter (门卫)歧视了她。普里亚姆瓦达·戈帕尔博士说,国王学院的门卫因为她的种族而对她区别对待,少数族裔学生也受到了类似的歧视。

Reporting of cases seems to have varying levels of success. King’s itself has instigated unconscious bias training and has collected testimonials in response to complaints in the past. But in its statement on Gopal’s complaint, it denied that race played a part. I know of other colleges that have apologised to students but failed to acknowledge racism was a factor. Many students have expressed a lack of faith in the process, and have made no formal complaint at all when an incident has occurred.

思考题:

Why the author say that the complaints’ effects vary?

(A) King’s gives an attitude different from the past.

(B) racism is denied by the Gopal and other colleges.

(C) students have no confidence in the complaint.

(D) Colleges’ responses are different to some extent.

词汇突破:

1.varying 各不相同的

2. instigate 实施

3. unconscious bias training 无意识的歧视训练

(这里不能翻译为“歧视训练”而应该是反歧视训练)

我们可以看一下第二句和第三句的关系!

4. testimonial 证言

5. in response to 回应

6. apologized = apologised 道歉(英式和美式拼写的差别)

第一句:

Reporting of cases seems to have varying levels of success.

参考译文:投诉的效果看起来各不相同

第二句:

King’s itself has instigated unconscious bias training and has collected testimonials in response to complaints in the past.

参考译文:过去国王学院发起了无意识的反歧视训练,并且收集了证言作为对投诉的回应。(也就是说国王学院过去还是很注意反对种族歧视的。)

第三句:

But in its statement on Gopal’s complaint, it denied that race played a part.

参考译文:但在关于Gopal投诉的声明中,国王学院否认了种族在其中扮演的角色。(现在却不是那么重视反对种族歧视了。)

第四句:

I know of other colleges that have apologised to students but failed to acknowledge racism was a factor.

参考译文: 据我所知,还有一些大学曾向学生道歉,但却没有承认种族歧视是其中一个因素。

第五句:

Many students have expressed a lack of faith in the process, and have made no formal complaint at all when an incident has occurred.

切分:

1.Many students have expressed a lack of faith in the process,

2.and have made no formal complaint at all when an incident has occurred.

参考译文:许多学生表示对这一过程缺乏信心,并且在发生歧视事件时根本没有提出任何正式的投诉。

答案选D

Why the author say that the complaints’ effects vary?

为什么作者认为投诉的效果各不相同?(你题干都没有理解对吧!)

题干= Reporting of cases seems to have varying levels of success.

其中:complaints= Reporting of cases

effects vary= varying levels of success

真题链接:

Many folks see silver linings to this slowdown. Potential home buyers would cheer for lower interest rates. Employers wouldn’t mind a little fewer bubbles in the job market. Many consumers seem to have been influenced by stock-market swings, which investors now view as a necessary ingredient to a sustained boom. Diners might see an upside, too. Getting a table at Manhattan’s hot new Alain Ducasse restaurant used to be impossible. Not anymore. For that, Greenspan & Co. may still be worth toasting.

54.Why can many people see“silver linings” to the economic slowdown?

[A] They would benefit in certain ways.

[B] The stock market shows signs of recovery.

[C] Such a slowdown usually precedes a boom.

[D] The purchasing power would be enhanced.

明天的句子:

For all our efforts to flatten, pile and stuff boxes into recycling bins, consumers aren’t that good at recycling cardboard. For years, they didn’t have to be. Many of the cardboard shipping boxes used to go to retail stores. Workers at your local Kmart, Sears or Target would load the flattened boxes into a machine that bound them into bales that the stores could resell for $74 or more a ton. Groceries and big-box stores recycled 90% to 100% of their cardboard.

思考题:

Consumers didn’t have to be good at recycling cardboard because____

A. they don’t have enough time and experience.

B. retail stores forbid them to take away cardboard box.

C. Grocery stores resell most of the cardboard boxes.

D. cleaning staff used to be responsible for recycling.
