阅读理解专题:词义题
发布日期:2021-01-30


词义题是阅读理解中的小难点之一,既考词汇积累,还考察对句子的把握。


我们今天结合AEAS官方备考课程中的内容,来分析一下阅读理解中词义题的做法。话不多说,直接上干货


以下两个句子中,划线部分与哪个选项的意思最接近?


1. Houda helped promote the exhibition, making this activity known by more students.

A. Encourage

B. Advertise

C. Lift

D. Produce


2. Be inspired by what others have done. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

A. Don’t use wheels in your project

B. You shouldn’t waste time in your project

C. It’s OK to use other students’ idea for your project

D. Don’t copy other students’ idea in your project


第一题直接考察词汇量,promote有三个主要意思:

① to help sth. to happen or develop 促进,推动

② to help sell a product or make it more popular by advertising it 推广,促销

③ to move sb. To a higher rank 提升(职务等)


由后半句话“making...known by more student”可知,promote在这里是“让这个展览被更多人知道”,更倾向于“推广”这一层,因此答案为B


第二题的考点有二:


是对reinvent一次的理解,这个词由前缀re-和单词invent构成给。前缀re-表示“再一次,又”(回顾单词前缀请点击)由此我们得到了reinvent的意思——“再次发明”(事实上,即使不认识invent也不影响这题的理解);


是对句子的理解, 要看到前后两个句子之间的联系。“其他人XXXX,你不需要做一遍XXXX”,也就是说,“可以使用别人的东西”,而与这句话意思最相近的是C

Reflection

I reached the back door. It was ajar. I listened for a moment and then called more loudly, “Hey, Kingy, it’s me...” The place is strangely quiet. I pushed the door open.


What does it mean when a door is described as ajar?

A. It is locked

B. It is wide open

C. It is coming off its hinge

D. It is slightly open
