提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
Homework:

"It must be the whole British army!" They thought. They turned **, away they went over the hill and down into the field in wild disorder and we after them. In no time there was the greatest turnaround you ever saw. The allies turned defeat into a sweeping and shining victory!

The allied commander looked on, his head ** with wonder, surprise and joy! He sent right off for Scoresby and put his arms around him and hugged him on the field in front of all the armies. Scoresby became famous that day as a great military leader, ** throughout the world. That honor will never disappear while history books last.

He is just as nice and pleasant as ever. But he still does not know enough to come in out of the ring. He is the stupidest man in the universe. Until now, nobody knew it but Scoresby and myself. He has been followed day by day, year by year by a strange luck. He has been a shining soldier in all our worlds for years. He has filled his whole military life with mistakes. Every one of them brought him another honorary title. Look at his dress, flooded with British and foreign medals. Well, sir, every one of them is the record of some great stupidity or other. They are proof that the best thing that can happen to a man is to be born lucky! I say again as I did at the dinner: Scoresby is a complete fool!

You have just heard the story "Luck". It was written by Mark Twain and adapted for Special English by Harold Berman. Your narrator was Shep O'Neal. Listen again next week at the same time for another American story told in Special English on The Voice of America. This is Susan Clark.
