      小编导读:我想,大部分的考生在看了很多资料之后,上网的话,再看到很多很多的单词或者词汇势必会有很不爽的感觉吧~~那下面我们轻松一点,来做一些小词的练习,在不知不觉中把自己的水平提高上去

      在英语学习中,对于同义词的学习和积累已是相当重要,
对于英语专业的同学来说,又一个技能也就是paraphrase,比如在英剧中,一句很优雅的It is out of my knowledge.也就是I don't know.因而,不论是考试,还是语言文化的素养,synonym的学习不容小视.

      今天开始,我们一起来背一点小词吧.这里说小词,意思是语言难度并不高,很常用,可以拿来做为听力词汇.

      今天的词为ability. 资料来自于Easier English Basic Synonyms这本书

      谈到能力,在0909的中口听译中有一段为:

      workers who can still demonstrate the capacity to carry on their work...

      这里能够,有能力表达的比较复杂demonstrate the capacity to...

      不失为写作中的一个好选择 可见 目前听译文本的难度日益增强

      好了,开始我们今天的词汇部分吧
