2020何凯文每日一句第185句

今天的句子:

Widespread use of smart phone and social media has changed in no small measure our way of communication, of shopping and of learning. We used to be vocal about the benefits that new technologies brought: they will lead to unprecedented job growth, support the economy and improve the quality of our lives. But it’s hard to ignore the growing public apathy in chatting with our friends in person. Regardless of the enormous amount of photos shared on Face book, modern city dwellers grow detached from their immediate surroundings and fail to realize that codes and digits can never provide the human touch that we yearn for.

思考题:

The benefits of the new technologies are dwarfed by the growing public apathy.

词汇突破:

1.widespread广泛的

2.unprecedented前所未有的

3.apathy冷漠

4.detach分离;分开

5.vocal 发声,表达 (传说中的打call)

第一句:

Widespread use of smart phone and social media has changed in no small measure our way of communication, of shopping and of learning.

参考译文:智能手机和社交媒体的广泛应用大大改变了沟通、购物和学习的方式。

第二句:

We used to be vocal about the benefits that new technologies brought : they will lead to unprecedented job growth, support the economy and improve the quality of our lives.

参考译文:我们曾经对新科技的优点不吝赞美:他们可带来前所未有的就业增长,支持经济并提升我们的生活质量。

第三句:

But it’s hard to ignore the growing public apathy in chatting with our friends in person.

参考译文:但我们很难忽视越来越严重的公众冷漠。不愿意与朋友面对面交谈。

第四句:

Regardless of the enormous amount of photos shared on Wechat or Face book, modern city dwellers grow detached from their immediate surroundings and fail to realize that codes and digits can never provide the human touch that we yearn for.

参考译文:虽然微信和脸书上分享了海量的照片,但现代的都市居民离周围的现实越来越疏离,没有意识到代码和字节永远无法提供我们内心渴望的人情味。

再送大家一些实用的表达:(这就是诚意!)

1.vocal about the merits of sth./vocal about the benefits that sth. brings

当你想客观描述一下大众或某个群体对某种事物的积极评价时,可用此述。

比如:

Psychologists have long been vocal about the merits of the optimistic attitude.

2.sb. paint sth. as playing a leading role ...

表扬的同时需作出若干评价,则可以用这个表达。比如:

Many experts paint reading as playing a leading role in achieving great personal success.

3.but it’s hard to ignore/turn a blind eye to…

当说完一个事件的正面,要说反面时,可以用这个表达来转折。比如:

But it’s hard to turn a blind eye to the growing problems of school-weariness among students, who are fed up with test-oriented learning and drop out as soon as they have the chance.

4.Regardless of…

表示“且不论,虽然”这个让步关系时,大家也可以试着用这个短语,会显得行文更地道一些。比如:

Regardless of the great wealth amassed by elites, the hundreds of millions of people living in the countryside still struggle to get formal education for their children.

思考题:

The benefits of the new technologies are dwarfed by the growing public apathy.(A is dwarfed byB=B dwarfs A ; A因为B而相形见绌=B使A相形见绌= B大于A)

The benefits of the new technologies are dwarfed by the growing public apathy.

(新技术的好处因为公众越来越多的冷漠而相形见绌。)

这个比较是不存在的,所以是错误的!

考研惯用套路:原文没有比较,选项出现比较!
