2022年MBA考研|英语阅读计划-Day1

计划说明

考研人数逐年增加,竞争之激烈使得我们不得不加急复习的日程。众所周知,阅读理解占据了考研英语二100分试卷的一半分值,而考研英语阅读文章大多来自英美国家的主流报刊杂志,所以如果能在日常就多多阅读这些文章,对以后读懂文章做对题目来说会大有裨益。但是对大多数备考的同学来说,刚开始投入复习,就去读考试文章难度的新闻报刊,也是不现实、并且不符合循序渐进的学习规律的,所以我们会在每次推送中,给大家给出两篇短文,一篇是初阶水平(大致在初高中水平);一篇是高阶水平(四六级到考研水平);同学们可以根据自己当前的情况,选择其中一篇进行学习。

学习步骤如下:

1.不看汉语译文自己看一遍短文做理解

2.看汉语译文比对自己理解的意思与之出入

3.强化记忆重点单词(以记忆其汉语意思为主)


初阶文段

Business Insider reports that a rumor which started online and has since gone viral is at the heart of the KFC free food scam.

KFC South Africa has discredited reports that a student was arrested after pretending to be an executive from the fast-food brand to get free food from restaurants around Durban, South Africa.The Daily Mail reported that the now-viral story was spurred by media coverage that began with a "rumor"saying a 27-year-old man entered KFC stores and told employees that he worked in the fast-food company's head office before testing food in the kitchen. KFC South Africa tweeted:"It would be legendary if only it were true. Fake is as far as it gets with this story."
