高一英语阅读理解专讲专练二 略读 略读(skimming)是利用较短的时间粗略地阅读全文的阅读策略, 其主要目的是迅速抓住文 章的主旨大意或作者的写作意图.这是一种高效的,有选择性的,有针对性的阅读技巧.掌 握略读这一技巧的关键就在于学会在阅读过程中区别文章的重要部分和非重要部分, 全局部 分和枝节部分.一些次要信息要大胆略去不读,迅速找出概括全段大意的句子. 在运用这一方法阅读文章时,要特别注意:①文章的标题;②文章的首句或引导性段落; ③文章尾部的结论性词语;④反映段落中心思想的主题句.如果我们找到了每段的主题句, 再将这些主题句集中在一起,就差不多能够把握住全文的中心内容了. Passage A 阅读理解 What do you think of British people and American people? You might think that there are no differences between the people in the two countries.
