2022年MBA考研|英语阅读计划

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)

高阶文段

But modern motherhood is also relentless.Not only do mothers in America today continue to spend more time on both childcare and household chores than fathers do,despite men’s increased involvement at home,they also spend more time with their children than they did in the 1970s,when Bombeck wrote that mothers had to have six pairs of hands, even as they worked full-time jobs.①Unable to justify the cost of childcare compared with their wages or, in the case of a global health crisis, faced with no childcare at all,②women end up being the ones to walk away from work.Previous economic crises in the U.S. have put men out of work, and we’ve bemoaned the hit to masculinity.

短文翻译

现代社会的妈妈们面临的处境依旧很残酷,很无情。当今美国的妈妈们不仅在照顾孩子,料理家务方面花的时间依旧都比爸爸们多,尽管男性对家庭的投入已经有所提升,而且,和上个世纪七十年代,也就是庞贝克写妈妈们即便是做着全职工作,还依然要有三头六臂的时候,和那时候的妈妈们相比,现在的妈妈们在孩子身上投入的时间也是有过之而无不及。工资无法和照顾孩子相比,又或者,在这场全球性的健康危机的影响下,全没有了托管的帮助,许多女性最后都成了各自家中离开工作岗位的那个人。美国以前的经济危机下失业的都是男性,那时候我们还在哀叹经济危机对男性的打击。
