Question: What does “微” mean?

 

茶包占领茶叶之国

September 17th, 2012 No comments

喝茶是中国人的发明,中国的茶文化已经有几千年的历史。一些老茶馆成为著名景点。即使在今天,饮茶也是中国人文化生活的一部分。但是,年轻人喜欢喝茶的越来越少,或是选择饮用廉价的袋装茶。

茶园

(德国之声中文网)龙井村的茶馆里座无虚席。就连茶馆前的露天圆桌也坐满客人,他们中的大多数人是专程从上海,杭州等城市来这里喝茶的。每个人面前都摆放着很多茶杯,供客人品茶。位于浙江省的龙井村闻名全国。村周围山坡上出产的龙井茶因其高品质,从古代起就受到中国历代皇帝的赞赏。该地区生产的茶叶在中国可卖到高价。一位买主说:”我每年都来这里买茶。今年我买了很多,各种品质的茶叶好几公斤,有2000多块一斤的,也有1000元左右一斤的。”

一位妇女说:”现在有很多的假冒龙井茶。在这里我是亲眼看着人们如何采茶,然后烘炒成茶叶。因此这里的茶多贵我也买。”

李连杰支持武术2020年成为奥运项目

September 13th, 2012 No comments

当东道主英国人依靠自行车疯狂揽获金牌的时候,8月8日,在伦敦woodwharf广场上举办了一场气势恢宏的活动,而这一幕也引发当地民众及游客围观:一场近百人同台的武术“团练”在此上演。据记者了解,这一大规模的表演活动是为了支持中国武术入奥。

中国武术入奥历史由来已久,自2008年武术入奥在北京奥运会自家门口折戟之后,今年7月,蛰伏多年的武术项目再次被奥组委通过并成为2020年奥运新入选8个备选项目之一。全球武术爱好者们的信心也再次达到了前所未有的高度,因此在伦敦,来自世界各地的武术爱好者,就以各种方式来支持武术入奥。

李连杰主演宣传片

当日,在伦敦woodwharf广场,一场近百人的武术表演拉开帷幕,引来众多当地人及游客的关注和围观。据主办方介绍,将地点选择在奥运会主办地伦敦,就是为了在这一世界目光的聚集地,让更多人通过他们的表演与宣传认识到中国传统武术的独特魅力,本次活动还在伦敦通过大屏幕播放了由李连杰主演的活动宣传片。

而就在前几天,由近百人组成的支持武术入奥团队分别再伦敦唐人街、特拉法特广场、莱斯特广场、交通博物馆这四个人流密集地对路人进行寻访,将武术宣传视频通过ipad向受访者展示,不少受访者表现出了对中国武术的强烈兴趣,并留下了个人信息,称将在武术成为2020年奥运会正式比赛项目的选举中投上自己的一票。

武术入奥已进入全新阶段

说起中国武术入奥,可以说是中国武术界几代人的梦想。这些年来多少华人为这一终极目标而不懈努力。早在1936年,当时的中国政府就派出了由11人组成的代表团,在第十一届柏林奥运会上向世人展示这一中华传统体育项目的魅力;到1990年,为增加世界“武术人口”,为武术进奥运创造条件,成立了“国际武术联合会”,然而多年的努力屡屡受挫,即使在家门口举行的北京奥运会上,武术也没能成为比赛甚至表演项目。

直到去年年底,中国武术申请入奥终于出现转机:国际奥委会宣布武术成为2020年夏季奥运会正式比赛的备选项目。武术将与运动攀登、棒球、壁球、垒球、轮滑、花式滑水、空手道七个项目竞争一个入选名额。这不能不说是中国武术在入奥道路上一个全新的里程碑。

中国选手雷声奥运会夺男子花剑金牌 男花个人创历史

2012-08-01 09:04 来源:新华网

31日的伦敦Excel体育馆,中国男子花剑个人创造了历史!最后时刻,落后两剑的中国剑客雷声,连中四击,以15:13力克埃及历史“第一剑”阿波尔卡西姆,获得中国男子花剑个人首枚奥运金牌。

“没有想到这个结果,赛前只想专注打好每一场比赛,打一个不让自己后悔的比赛,所以我对自己说,一定能走得很远,”雷声说。

赛会7号种子阿波尔卡西姆在本届奥运会的表现让人眼前一亮。作为非洲历史上首个杀入奥运会四强的剑手,阿波尔卡西姆状态极佳,气势如虹,挑落了现世界第一,意大利名剑卡萨拉。

雷声告诉记者,这个对手之前打过,就在今年年初,当时是一剑险胜。

双方的对阵因此火星四射。

当雷声取得4:2领先后,阿波尔卡西姆叫了一个10分钟的受伤暂停。回到赛场,雷声并没有受到节奏打乱的影响,又取两剑。正当雷声以9:7领先时,他的一记进攻被判有效,但随后裁判又改判给了阿波尔卡西姆,比分一下从10:7变成了9:8,这样阿波尔卡西姆仅落后一剑。

“当时确实处于困境当中,所以我换了把剑,调整调整,冷静下来,不着急,比赛不结束,谁都不知道结果,”雷声赛后回忆。

随后雷声重整旗鼓,两人互相试探、缠斗,比分也胶着在一起。当战至11:11时,阿波尔卡西姆刺中两剑,取得13:11的领先。危急关头,冷静的雷声顶住压力,连中四剑,将胜利揽入怀中。

赛后,雷声透露了制胜的秘密。“当时就确定了进攻不要过多,因为打到决赛,双方体能消耗都很大,因此要冷静下来,多拉回合。”

刺出制胜一剑后,雷声仰天长啸,兴奋地与教练拥抱。主教练王海滨声音沙哑,喜极而泣。

“这是我们多年积累和辛劳换来的结果。雷声今天表现得非常好,既是个人的胜利,也是整个队伍的胜利,”王海滨说。(记者李博闻、马邦杰)

孙扬创造历史获得中国男子游泳奥运首

2012年 7月 28日, 星期六

中国游泳运动员孙扬在男子400米自由泳项目中以3分40秒14的成绩打破奥运会纪录,并获得中国男子游泳奥运史上首枚金牌。

韩国选手朴泰桓以3分42秒06得到银牌!美国的范德凯伊获得了铜牌。

这场比赛扣人心旋。比赛刚开始,韩国选手朴泰桓在前350米都保持领先。

但孙扬紧随其后,不断加速,逐渐缩短和朴泰恒的距离。

到最后50米时,孙扬率先转身,超过朴泰恒。

孙扬“后发制人”,速度不断加快,向世界纪录冲击,BBC转播这场比赛的现场解说人不禁惊呼。

孙扬最终以3分40秒14的成绩打破奥运会纪录,一举夺下这枚金牌。

孙杨的最终成绩比德国运动员比德曼创造的3分40秒07的世界纪录仅差了0.07秒!

他成功为中国代表团拿下伦敦奥运会上中国队的第三枚金牌。

What is Reading?

What is Reading? (Click to read the original text)

Most of us think of reading as a simple, passive process that involves reading words in a linear fashion and internalizing their meaning one at a time. But reading is actually a very complex process that requires a great deal of active participation on the part of the reader.

To get a better sense of the complexity of reading, read what some experts in the field have said about the reading process:

What do we read? The message is not something given in advance–or given at all– but something created by interaction between writers and readers as participants in a particular communicative situation. – Roy Harris in Rethinking Writing (2000)

Reading is asking questions of printed text. And reading with comprehension becomes a matter of getting your questions answered. – Frank Smith in Reading Without Nonsense (1997)

Reading is a psycholinguistic guessing game. It involves an interaction between thought and language. Efficient reading does not result from precise perception and identification of all elements, but from skill in selecting the fewest, most productive cues necessary to produce guesses which are right the first time. The ability to anticipate that which has not been seen, of course, is vital in reading, just as the ability to anticipate what has not yet been heard is vital in listening. – Kenneth Goodman in Journal of the Reading Specialist (1967)

Literacy practices are almost always fully integrated with, interwoven into, constituted as part of, the very texture of wider practices that involve talk, interaction, values, and beliefs. – James Gee in Social Linguistics and Literacies (1996)

As you can see, reading involves many complex skills that have to come together in order for the reader to be successful.

For example, proficient readers recognize the purpose for reading, approach the reading with that purpose in mind, use strategies that have proven successful to them in the past when reading similar texts for similar purposes, monitor their comprehension of the text in light of the purpose for reading, and if needed adjust their strategy use.

Proficient readers know when unknown words will interfere with achieving their purpose for reading, and when they won’t. When unknown words arise and their meaning is needed for comprehension, proficient readers have a number of word attack strategies available to them that will allow them to decipher the meaning of the words to the extent that they are needed to achieve the purpose for reading.

Reading is also a complex process in that proficient readers give to the text as much as they take. They make meaning from the text by using their own prior knowledge and experiences.

Proficient readers are constantly making predictions while reading. They are continuously anticipating what will come next. Their prior knowledge and experiences with texts as well as with the world around them allow them to do this. It is this continuous interaction with the text that allows readers to make sense of what they are reading.

Benefits of learning a new language

What does research show about the benefits of language learning?

In this age of accountability in education, policymakers and administrators, as well as parents, are increasingly demanding to know what research studies show regarding the benefits of language learning.  This document will identify some of the major correlation studies that highlight how language learners benefit from their experiences.

Three major areas have been identified:

How does language learning support academic achievement?

How does language learning provide cognitive benefits to students?

How does language learning affect attitudes and beliefs about language learning and about other cultures?

Making Generalization

September 6th, 2012 No comments

A generalization is a broad statement about a subject based on provided information, observations and experiences.

A valid generalization is based on:

  • Supporting facts;
  • Several examples;
  • Past experiences;
  • Logic and reasoning

Examples of generalization

Information Valid generalization
Post offices, courts and city halls are closed on the 4thof July.

邮局、法院、市政府在7月4日关门。

Most government buildings are closed on national holidays.

大部分政府机构在法定假日关门。

雁儿,丫环,不识字 很多社会地位低的女性没有接受教育的机会。
颂莲,四姨太,大学辍学 即使是一些社会地位不太低的女性,在家庭发生变故时,也不得不中断学业。

没有人,谁都不,谁都没

Hyponymy: The Relationship Between Specific and General Words

Hyponymy: The Relationship Between Specific and General Words

Most people are familiar with the terms synonymy and antonymy. Both refer to a relationship between words: synonymy to words having the same meaning, and antonymy to words having the opposite meaning. Fewer people, however, are familiar with a term that refers to an even more important sense relationship between words: hyponymy, the relationship between a specific word and a general word when the former is included within the latter.

That relationship is illustrated by the common formula “An A is a kind of B.” For example, “A dog is a kind of animal,” or simply “A dog is an animal.” The specific word, “dog,” which is included within, or under, the general word, is known as a hyponym (Greek “under” + “name” 下义词). The general word, “animal,” which heads a list of many specific words under it, is a hypernym (Greek “above” + “name” 上义词). In this case, those other specific words, or hyponyms, could include, besides “dog,” a vast number of other animal names, such as “bird,” “horse,” and “monkey.” Those specific words under the same hypernym are related to each other as cohyponyms.
