有关于《新概念英语》这套经典教材有很多的故事和讨论,敬请细看:

 我终于把《新概念英语》三册&四册全背下来了

 

 我没有什么超人的记忆,也不属于别人说的那种牛人,但是我就是在三个月的时间内 把《新概念英语》三册&四册的共108篇文章全背下来了。 

 

第一篇:过去将来时(思想准备篇)

 

 有人会问:你为什么要把它背下来呢?我觉的学一学就蛮好的吗? 故事的起因一个真实的小故事:(2002年的夏天在新东方听到)  新东方有个学员现在在Duke大学,他从高一开始背《新概念英语》第三册,背到高三 就背完了。高考考进了北大,进北大后,他本来不想再背了。但当他背给同学听的时 候,其他同学都露出了羡慕的眼光,于是,为了这种虚荣心,他就坚持背第四册,把 第三、四册都背得滚瓜烂熟,他熟到什么地步呢,有人把其中任何一句说出来,把能 把上一句和下一句连接下去,而且语音非常标准,因为他是模仿着磁带来背的。后来 他去了美国Duke大学,他给新东方的教师写信,老师不敢回,因为老师对他的英文有 畏惧感,他的英文学得太好,只能给他回中文信,并告诉他不是不会写英文,而是想 让他温习温习中文,不要忘记祖国的语言。  这位学员到美国第一个星期写文章,教授把他叫过去说他的文章是剽窃的,因为他的 文章写得太好了,教授说:"20年教书没有教出这么漂亮的文章来。"这个学员说, 我没有办法证明我能写出这么优秀的文章,但我告诉你,我能背108篇文章,而且背 得非常熟练,你想不想听。结果,他没有背完两篇,教授就哭了起来,为什么?因为 这个教授想一想自己教了20年了,居然一篇文章也没有背过,被中国学生背掉了,所 以很难过……  从那个时候起我就有一种冲动,有一天我相信我也能将这108篇文章全背下来,看来 我是做到了。 我相信也会有人问:你在背诵的过程中最大的困难是什么?我的回答就是:“坚持”。 其实我能够坚持下来也是原于一个我在《读者》上看到的一个小故事: 古希腊哲学家苏格拉底在给学生上第一节课的时候,要求他的学生在每天上课之前都向上挥一下手。过了一个星期,他发现已经有一半的学生不再挥手了;过了一个月, 他发现只剩下三分之一在挥手;过了半年,他再看,发现最后只剩下一个人在挥手, 那个人就是柏拉图。柏拉图后来成为伟大的思想家和哲学家。 其实任何一件事到最后都是“简单的重复和机械的劳动”。只要你做到了,ok你就有 可能在一个领域做到很前列,甚至是Number One

 第二篇:现在进行时(背诵具体策略篇)

 

无论我们学习什么,都可能给自己做一个计划或者是有一个步奏。 在很早以前就听说过王国维的三种境界 昨夜西风凋碧树,独上高楼望尽天涯路。 衣带渐宽终不悔,为伊消得人憔悴。 众里寻她前百度,慕然回首那人却在灯火阑珊处 这些话是不是让你在做事情上有一定的启发呢? 我很喜欢《毛主席诗词》,所以我也有了用《毛主席诗词》串联起来我的做事三境界。 雄关漫道真如铁,而今迈步从头跃。(此乃第一境界) 一万年太久,只争朝夕。(此乃第二境界) 待到山花烂漫时,“我”在丛中笑。(此乃终极目标) 三个月的正式背诵,每天基本上是狂背10-12小时,对我来说既是一种痛苦又是一种 快乐。痛苦,是因为太累了,有时一看到《新概念》我都恶心的想吐;快乐,看着自 己一天天一篇篇把这些文章背掉,那种愉悦的心情是不言而喻的。也许这就叫作“痛,并快乐着”吧。 在这个“痛,并快乐这”中我也经历了几个过程: 1。从小我背课文就拿者一本书在我自己的小屋里低着头边走边背(出声背)。在一 开始背《新概念》的时候我也是这样,结果一天下来弄得我简直是筋疲力尽,而且效率不高,这种方法很快就被淘汰。 2。我发现做在自己的床上背诵(出声音背)效率大大的提高,这样一天下来,感觉 除了嗓子有点累还是蛮轻松的。就这样我在430日把第三册背完了。想想第三册有 60课我仅用了一个多月(哦,我的背诵是从2003320日开始)就搞定,那么第四 册才48课估计一个月搞定应该没什么问题。但是事实超出了我的预料。 3。五月一日正式开始背诵第四册,当背到第10课(silicon vallay)的是时候我的嗓 子已经受不了了,只要我一背就咳嗽,而且咳的很厉害,背诵被迫终止的5天。后来 我只能不出声音的背(就是默背),结果奇迹出现了,我不在咳嗽了,而且我的效率 提高了一倍。(也许“默背”是很多人的背诵习惯,可是多我来说就意味着要改变从 “儿时”养成的背诵习惯,还是挺不容易的。)事情到此,可能也就没有什么可讲的 了。但是,在我快要把第四册背完的时候(背到第39what every writer wants), 我遇到了一个大困难,那就是“噪音”。因为我家是住在(天津人叫做)“大杂院”。 时直夏日,人门都出来乘凉,这种生活噪音成了我的最大的敌人。背诵的速度被迫降 了下来。就这样原定第四册最迟在610拿下,结果直到621日才全部搞定。 所以,对我而言(是否适用其他人我不敢说)背诵的最快的方法是:1。坐在一个地 2。默背 3。尽量找噪音小的地方背。 

第三篇:现在完成时(背诵过后的感觉)

《新概念英语》30年不衰说明她的确是一本好书 1。第三册大部分文章都会让你觉的:这篇文章真好玩,这个故事有意思。第三册的 文章可以说都是作者象做一个精品一样来把这个文章弄出来。如果你能背下三册的前 40篇文章,那么你的写作功力一定会大增。如果你说我背下来三册前40篇了,我还是 不会写作文,那不是你问题,就是我有问题,要不就是《新概念》有问题。 2。第四册难了。但是她究竟难在什么地方呢?她比第三册究竟难在哪里呢?实际上 我的感觉就是第四册基本上都是“说明文”而第三册可以说都是“记叙文”。所以第 四册难在她的文体上,她没有什么情节,而且她有自己的Ideas。所以,像第44 patterns of culture 这课简直就是超超难,她没有什么情节,背诵的难度非常的大。 以上是我一点小小的心得,献给那些和我一样热爱《新概念英语》的朋友,
