提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
The International Criminal Court says it's opening a formal investigation into war crimes in the Palestinian territories which will examining both sides of the conflict. The Palestinian authority welcomed the move. The Israeli Prime Minister called the decision "the essence of anti-Semitism and hypocrisy".


(也有报道中用的是"the epitome of anti-Semitism and hypocrisy" 。essence,本质,精髓。epitome,典范,典型,象征,但epitome 也有 缩影,摘要,梗概之意。 )


The US Capitol Police say they have intelligence showing there is a "possible plot" by a militia group to breach the Capitol Building on Thursday. Extra security measures are being put in place to try to avoid a repeat of last month's violence when Trump's supporters stormed the buildings.


(被动语态的现在进行时be(is/am/are)+being done;同时此处由于弱读很容易听成现在完成时态 have been put in place; to avoid a repeat of...避免...的重演)



The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has addressed the claims of sexual harassment for the first time by saying he will fully cooperate with an investigation, but stressed he won't resign. He said he'd never touched anyone inappropriately, but acknowledged that his habit of hugging and kissing people could make them feel uncomfortable.


(address...(通常是不好的事,如rumours about.../claims of...) by saying.... 可理解为“就...作出回应,说....”  fully co-operate with an investigation全面/充分配合调查;touch sb inappropriately 说白了就是“摸”)



Eight people have been injured in the south Sweden in what police are treating as a suspected terrorist attack. The assailant stabbed his victims in the town of Vetlanda.


(police 可用作单数,也可用作复数,取决于说话人的侧重点不同)



The European Union says it will take legal action against Britain for breaching the terms of the Brexit Deal as regards Northern Ireland. London has said it'll unilaterally extend by 6 months a grace period in which goods shipped from the British mainland to the region are not checked.


(as regards 关于,至于;grace period宽限期; unliaterlly extend by 6 months a grace period此处调整了语,原应为 unliaterlly extend a grace period by 6 months ,只因 a grace period还有其in which引导的定语从句,所以做了调整。也可以说是倒装,强调6 months。但从英语树状结构特点来说,强调意味并不明显,说成为方便行文的常见语序调整或许更合理。——书面表达时有用)




There has been chaos in northwest Nigeria as parents were reunited with their kidnapped daughters in the town of Jangebe. Eyewitnesses said at least three people were shot by the security forces after parents frustrated by the length of a handover ceremony started throwing rocks at government officials.


(reunite 查字典, 也有使动意。一般用被动语态,或者说表状态。 be reunited with sb 如“孩子们终于和家人重聚了。The children were finally reunited with their families.《朗文4》” 。a handover ceremony 交接仪式)



Scientists say they've confirmed the origin of high-energy solar particles, a finding that could make it easier to predict the dangerous solar storms that they can cause when they reach the Earth. The particles come from plasma that has been locked in the lower layers of the Sun's atmosphere.


(high-energy solar particles高能太阳离子;slar storm太阳风暴;两个they指代不同,前一个指“高能太阳离子”,后一个指“太阳风暴”。in the lower layers of the Sun's atmosphere中的the 本人也迷惑不解,可能是把a听成the,但不可能,因为layers是复数,但比较级前用定冠词the 本人不理解,或是the的最基本用法“特指”吧!请朋友们赐教。谢谢!)
