海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第94期

发表时间:2017-08-17内容来源:VOA英语学习网
In this way my preparation for college went on without interruption. I found it much easier and pleasanter to be taught by myself than to receive instruction in class. There was no hurry, no confusion. My tutor had plenty of time to explain what I did not understand, so I got on faster and did better work than I ever did in school. I still found more difficulty in mastering problems in mathematics than I did in any other of my studies. I wish algebra and geometry had been half as easy as the languages and literature. But even mathematics Mr. Keith made interesting; he succeeded in whittling problems small enough to get through my brain. He kept my mind alert and eager, and trained it to reason clearly, and to seek conclusions calmly and logically, instead of jumping wildly into space and arriving nowhere. He was always gentle and forbearing, no matter how dull I might be, and believe me, my stupidity would often have exhausted the patience of Job. 我正是以这种方式为上大学做着准备,其间从未间断。我发现,同接受课堂灌输相比,自学的过程更加容易,也更富有乐趣。自学时不会有仓促之感,也不会造成思维混乱。我的导师有充足的时间解答我的疑问,所以,我学得又快又好,其效果远比在学校学习要好。不过,同我所学的任何其他课程相比,数学仍然是最令我感到棘手的问题。如果代数和几何能有外语和文学一半那么容易就好了,但是即使像数学这样的课程,凯斯先生也把它变得多了些趣味。他成功地将复杂问题分解至我能够理解的最小片段;他时刻令我的思维保持在活跃和求知的状态。他训练我运用理性的思维,冷静而客观地寻求事物的结论,而不应该漫无目的地误打误撞。他总是对我宽容有加,尽管我的愚蠢可能会令约伯也失去耐心,可是无论我的理解是多么地迟钝,他始终对我抱有信心。 On the 29th and 30th of June, 1899, I took my final examinations for Radcliffe College. The first day I had Elementary Greek and Advanced Latin, and the second day Geometry, Algebra and Advanced Greek. 1899年6月29日和30日,我参加了拉德克利夫学院的入学考试。第一天考的是初级希腊语和高级拉丁文,第二天是德语、代数和高级希腊语。 The college authorities did not allow Miss Sullivan to read the examination papers to me; so Mr. Eugene C. Vining, one of the instructors at the Perkins Institution for the Blind, was employed to copy the papers for me in American braille. 校方不允许苏立文小姐为我读试卷,所以,学校就雇来了尤金·C.维宁先生为我把试卷译成美式布莱叶盲文。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20170817/486037.html
