然后在这一章 他们继续谈论这些农民

这个故事很好很有趣
And this story is just fine and entertaining
这里有大量的词汇帮助你
and there are some great vocabulary words that will help you
一步步的提高英语水平

今天这是我想推荐的最简单的一本书
This is the easiest book that I want to recommend today.
我一般推荐的什么样的书
And what I recommend in general
如果你认为这本书很有趣的话

让我们看一个有点难度的
Let’s take a look at the next one that’s a little bit harder.
我想推荐的下一本书事实上
The next book that I want to recommend is one that actually
是我的一些学生 我的一些英语学生正在读的书
some of my students, some of my English students are currently reading.
这是“夜色中好奇的狗 ”
It is “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time”.
这是一本充满智慧的书
This book is really clever.
它不是太复杂 但是水平不错
It’s not too challenging but it’s good level up.
你可以看到它有点厚
As you can see it’s a little bit thicker.
我开始读第一部分的句子
I’m going to read the first couple of sentences.
它可以让你看到这本书的写作风格
And I’ll let you it’ll let you see the style of writing.
句子结构可能有些复杂
The sentence structure maybe is a little more complex.
我们开始
And let’s get started.
那是午夜后的七分钟
“It was 7 minutes after midnight.
这只狗躺在Shears女士房前
The dog was lying on the grass
草坪中间的
in the middle of the lawn
草丛里
in front of Mrs. Shears’s house.
它的眼睛是闭着的
Its eyes were closed.
摆着一副正在奔跑的样式
It looked as if it was running on its side,
似乎是在做梦追赶猫一样
the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream.
实际上它既不在跑也不在睡觉
But the dog was not running or asleep.
而是死了” 哦……
The dog was dead.”
Woo…
所以在这本书中,是个孩子在讲故事
So in this book a child is telling the story.
他试图去解释
And he’s trying to solve the mystery of

And it’s really a clever way to tell a story.
所以这是我推荐的第二本书 进一步提高等级
So this is my second recommendation, the next level up.
让我们来谈谈另一本书
Let’s talk about another book.
我要推荐的下一本书更具挑战性
The next book that I went to recommend is a little more challenging

讲述了她和家人躲在阁楼里时的生活
when she’s hiding in an attic with her family
他们在躲避纳粹
and they’re hiding from the Nazis.
看到一个13 14岁的小女孩能写出这样美丽的话
It’s really just eye-opening to see that a young 13
这么深刻的想法 真令人大开眼界
14-year-old girl can write such beautiful words such deep thoughts.
当我读这本书的时候
And when I read this book,
它以不同的方式打动了我
it just touched me in a different way.
因此我想推荐它
So I want to recommend it.
就像之前一样 我想读几个句子
And like before I want to read a couple of sentences
以便于你可以了解到她的英文写作风格
so that you can see in English this style of her writing.
她说:“我希望我能向你倾诉一切 ”
She says, “I hope I will be able to confide everything to you,
我从未向任何人吐露心声
as I have never been able to confide in anyone,
我希望你能成为我安慰和支持的源泉
and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.”
她写下了日记 并对日记倾诉
She’s writing a diary and she’s talking to the diary.
我希望日记会带给我安慰和支持
I hope that you, the diary, will give me comfort and support.
所以她在这本书中给出了一个如此清晰有力的信息
So she’s writing just such a clear powerful message in this book.
我建议如果你觉得这本书有点厚的话
I recommend if you feel like this maybe it’s too thick for you,
有很多她的日记的精简版

如果在你的区域有一个英语图书馆
See if you have an English library in your area,

通常他们会让你免费看几页
Usually they let you see a couple of pages for free.
看几页
Check out a couple of pages,
看看它是否适合你的水平
and see if it would be a good level for you.
这是提高英语技巧的好方法
And it’s a good way to challenge English skills.
我们来谈谈下一本书。
Let’s talk about the next book.
下一本书实际上是两本书。
The next book is actually two books,
只是一个大概的想法,这是一系列的书。
and kind of just a general idea, it is series of books.
接下来我们有
So here we have
“哈利·波特”和“纳尼亚传奇”
“Harry Potter” and “The Chronicles of Narnia”,
这是两个不同的系列
these are two different series.
这些是我读过的法语版本
These are actually my French versions of these books
帮助我提高法语水平
that I have read to help me improve my French skills.
但我建议如果你喜欢这样的一个系列
But I recommend if you enjoyed a series like this
“哈利波特” “纳尼亚传奇” 饥饿游戏“”
“Harry Potter”, “Narnia”, “Hunger Games”,
如果你喜欢用母语阅读这些书
If you enjoy that in your native language
那么非常棒 你已经知道这些故事了
that’s excellent you already know the story.
词汇是具有挑战性的 但通常概念
The vocabulary is challenging but the general concepts aren’t too
并不会太难太超前
too difficult too advance.
这里没有太多的描述 这是一个很好的开始
There’s not too many descriptions and this is a good place to start.
阅读一些你已经读过的
Reading something that you’ve already read
回过头来看看英语
and going back and checking it out in English.
这只是两个例子 如果你喜欢另一个系列
So these are just two examples but if there’s another series that you like,
继续做同样的事情
go ahead and do the same thing with that.
下一本书是我认为是到现在为止我提到的
The next books is I think one of the most challenging of the books
那些书中最有挑战性的
that I’ve mentioned so far.
这本书不是给孩子的 是给成人的
This book is certainly not for children, it’s for adults.
它是“追风筝的人”
And it is “The Kite Runner”.
这本书是关于现代阿富汗的
This book is about modern-day Afghanistan
它讲述了一个在城市生活的年轻男孩
and it follows a young boy who living in the city
试图找到生活的真谛
trying to figure out life
所有发生在他身上的好的和坏的事情
all of the good and bad things that happened to him
他的力量和他的旅程
and his strength and just his journey.
还有这个作者写的第二本书
There’s also a second book written by this author
它们不是一个系列 是他在相似的环境下写的另一本书
It’s not a series but he wrote another book in the similar setting
叫做“灿烂千阳”
called “A Thousand Splendid Suns”.
但这是第一本书和第二本书 如果你喜欢这本书
But this is the first book and the second one if you enjoy this one
你也可以读那本
you can read that one as well.
这本书我打算先读几句话
This book I’m going to read a couple of sentences at the beginning
告诉你他的写作风格
just to show you his style of writing,
有时候一边看单词
And sometimes it’s easier to see the words
一边听 更容易 而不仅仅是听
and hear them at the same time instead of just listening.
因此如果你觉得仅仅是听 对你有挑战性的话
So if you feel it challenging to you to just listen
别担心 去亚马逊
don’t worry go to Amazon
找几页 自己试着去读一下
and check out a couple of pages try to read it yourself
看看是否适合你
and see if it’s a good fit.
我们先来读几个句子
Let’s read a couple of sentences.
第一章 2001年12月
Chapter 1December 2001
现在的我在1975年那个又阴又寒冷的冬天
I became what I am today at the age of twelve
只是一个12岁的小姑娘
on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975.
我清楚的记得那一刻 我蜷缩在一堵摇摇欲坠的土墙后面
I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a crumbling mud wall,
偷看结冰的小河旁的小巷
peeking into the alley near the frozen creek.
那是很久以前的事了
That was a long time ago,
我知道 他们所说的将过去埋葬
but it’s wrong what they say about the past,
是错误的
I’ve learned, about how you can bury it.
因为过去会将你牢牢抓住
Because the past claws its way out.
现在回想起来 我意识到
Looking back now, I realize
我一直在窥视着过去的二十六年的空寂的小巷
I have been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years.
这好书肯定比其他书更具挑战性
The beautiful book certainly a little more challenging than the other ones
但是如果你对自己的阅读技巧感到满意
but if you feel comfortable with your reading skills
你想欣赏一些东西 那就读读这本书吧
and you want something to just enjoy, read this book,
在亚马逊上可以找到推荐的类似的书
check out on Amazon of the recommend books that are similar
你就可以扩展你的阅读风格了
and you’ll be able to really expand your reading style.
我今天推荐的最后一本书是唯一一本非小说类的书
The final book is the only nonfiction book that I’m recommending today.
因为我认为读小说
Because I think it’s great to read fiction books
和沉浸在英语故事中是很好的
and get lost in the story in English.
这样你就忘了你学的是语言
This way you’ve kind of forgotten that you are studying language
你仅仅是对英语感兴趣
You’re just in immersing yourself in English
但是很多人同样喜欢读非小说类的书
but a lot of people enjoy reading nonfiction as well.
我当然喜欢 但是有很多话题
I certainly do. But there’s a lot of topics,
不同的话题 可能会引起你的兴趣 但我并不感兴趣
different topics, that might interest you that don’t interest me.
所以我选择了一本书 我想送给你。
So I choose one book and I want to present it to you
戴尔·卡耐基的人性的弱点
“How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie
这是一本非常出名的书
This is extremely popular book
你可以一章一章的读
and it’s something that you can take chapter by chapter
每一章你都可以学到一些东西
and learn something from each chapter.
当你阅读非小说类 我建议你做一些笔记
When you’re reading nonfiction I recommend taking some notes
因为你在每一章都能学到一些具体的东西
because you’re supposed to learn something specific in each chapter.
如果你想学习如何赢得朋友和影响别人
If you want to learn how to win friends and influence people
你要记住他的每一个提示
you’re going to want to remember each of his tips.
因此当你阅读非小说类文章的时候 准备一个笔记本
So when you read nonfiction take a notebook
每章之后写一些你学过的东西或者他说的话
and after each chapter write some things that you learned or that he said.
我来读一下这本书的一些句子
I’d like to read you a couple of sentences from this book.
尽管是非小说类 为了便于阅读
Even though it’s nonfiction he tells a lot of stories
他还是讲了很多故事
to make it easier to read.
这些都是他这个从世界上发生的事情中得到的真实故事
These are usually true stories from his life from things that happened in the world.
他们为他将要谈论的东西提供了很好的具体例子
And they give good concrete examples for what he’s about to talk about.
接下来我们从第一章开始
So let’s start with chapter 1.
我只阅读第一章的一些句子
And I’m going to read just a couple of sentences.Chapter 1
如果你想采蜜 不要踢翻蜂巢
“If You Want to Gather Honey, Don’t Kick Over the Beehive”
1931年5月7日
“On May 7, 1931,
纽约最耸人听闻的搜捕
the most sensational manhunt New York City had ever known
已达到高潮
had come to its climax.
经过几个星期的搜索 “双枪”克劳利——杀手
After weeks of search, “Two Gun” Crowley — the killer,
这个不抽烟不喝酒的持枪歹徒走投无路
the gunman who didn’t smoke or drink — was at bay,
被困在西区大街上他爱人的公寓里
trapped in his sweetheart’s apartment on West End Avenue.
嗯 在这里你可以看到他要讲一个关于杀手的有趣故事
Um.So here you can see he’s about to tell an interesting story
试图找到这个杀手
about a killer, trying to find the killer
但他会用这个故事来讲述更深刻的一个想法
but he’s going to use this story to explain something broader
帮助你赢得朋友和影响别人
another idea to help you win friends and influence people.
我希望这六本书都对你有用
I hope these six books have been useful to you
并帮助你找到一个英语阅读的起点
and helped you to find a starting place for reading in English.
就像我在整个视频中提到的 去亚马逊网站
Like I’ve mentioned throughout this video, go to amazon.com
