提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
hm Now the VOA special English program: American stories. Our story today is called "on the road" it was written by an American reporter Chairs K. It is from his book called "a life on the road". For many years Chairs K traveled across the United States telling interestint stories about Americans. His stories were broadcast on the CBS TV network. Later some were published in books. Here is s* with todays story "on the road". I had the some what unrealistic idea, that I would find interesting stories at every crossroads throughout the American countryside. So the cameraman, soundman and I started out with great hope from New York city. For a few raining days we drove through the small towns of New England, the northeast corner of the United States. We drove aimlessly without one idea in our heads. I began get nervous wondering if an idea would never come. Then the sun came out and the wind started to blow and a bright a* shook and fellow up the trees. Yellow and red and gold rained down all around us. In every town childern were playing in hills of leaves. We got the camera out and did our first story about how pretty it all was. As a news reporter I was used to going fast and working hard. This kind of stories however seemed to work best when I went slow and took it easy. When I finally shook off the sense of speed of a newsman I did not have to worry about finding stories any longer. They found me. In west view Ohio I met professor John Frankie Smith. He taught speech and drama at O. college until he was 70 years old. Then the school rules said he had to retire. He could not imagine leaving the students behind. So when he was forced to retire he just kept working at the college. He had continued to work for 15 years as a cleaningman in the Gymnasium. "During my years as a professor" he said "I would work though the Gym and see the man cleaning the floor. I knew what a mop was and what a b* was. It was hard work for me at first but I get to used to it, it is necessary to work."
