海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第80期

发表时间:2017-07-18内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Chapter XVI 第十六章 Before October, 1893, I had studied various subjects by myself in a more or less desultory manner. I read the histories of Greece, Rome and the United States. I had a French grammar in raised print, and as I already knew some French, I often amused myself by composing in my head short exercises, using the new words as I came across them, and ignoring rules and other technicalities as much as possible. I even tried, without aid, to master the French pronunciation, as I found all the letters and sounds desCRIbed in the book. Of course this was tasking slender powers for great ends; but it gave me something to do on a rainy day, and I acquired a sufficient knowledge of French to read with pleasure La Fontaine's "Fables," "Le Medecin Malgre Lui" and passages from "Athalie." 到1893年10月之前,我已经断断续续地自学了多种类型的科目。我阅读了希腊、罗马和美国的历史。我有一本盲文法语语法书,而且已经学习了几句法语。为了自娱自乐,我经常默默地在脑海里做一些小练习。我用随意想到的新单词造句,而且不太理会语法规则和其他的技术性问题。在无人帮助的情况下,我甚至尝试掌握法语发音,因为我在这本书里发现了所有字母和音节的发音讲解。当然,对于宏大的目标而言,这种努力是远远不够的;但是不管怎么说,在淫雨霏霏的日子里,我总可以有事可干。就这样,我所掌握的法语知识足够使我阅读有趣的拉封丹的寓言,莫里哀的《屈打成医》,以及拉辛的《阿达莉》中的段落。 I also gave considerable time to the improvement of my speech. I read aloud to Miss Sullivan and recited passages from my favourite poets, which I had committed to memory; she corrected my pronunciation and helped me to phrase and inflect. It was not, however, until October, 1893, after I had recovered from the fatigue and excitement of my visit to the World's Fair, that I began to have lessons in special subjects at fixed hours. 我也用相当多的时间来提高我的说话能力。我大声地为苏立文小姐朗读课文,背诵我喜爱的诗歌章节;她则纠正我的发音并帮我断句和改变词形。总之,直到1893年10月,也就是在我从参观世界博览会的疲劳和兴奋状态中恢复平静之后,我才开始在固定时间内学习一些特殊的课程。 Miss Sullivan and I were at that time in Hulton, Pennsylvania, visiting the family of Mr. William Wade. Mr. Irons, a neighbour of theirs, was a good Latin scholar; it was arranged that I should study under him. 那时,我和苏立文小姐正在宾夕法尼亚州的霍尔顿,当时我们客居在威廉·韦德先生家。艾恩先生是韦德先生家的邻居,他是一个优秀的拉丁语学者,所以跟他学习拉丁语也就成了顺理成章的事。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20170718/476800.html
