the answer until one evening when I sat down at the computer to do some research on great women of China. 直到有一天晚上坐在电脑旁研究中国的伟大女性时,我才有了答案。 By chance I came across an article about a doctor called Lin Qiaozhi, a specialist in women's diseases. 很偶然地,我看到了一篇关于林巧稚大夫的文章。她是妇科专家,She lived from 1901 to 1983. 1901年出生,1983年去世。 It seemed that she had been very busy in her chosen career, travelling abroad to study as well as writing books and articles. 林巧稚似乎一直都在为 自己选择的事业而奔忙, 她去国外留学, 并写了很多书和文章。 of them caught my eye. 其 One 中有一本书引起了我的注意。It was a small book explaining how to cut the death rate from having and caring for babies. 这是一本小书,介绍如何从妇女怀孕到护理婴儿的过程中降低 死亡率。She gave some simple rules to follow for keeping babies clean, healthy and free from sickness. 她提出了一些可以遵循的简单的做法,保持婴儿清洁和健康,让他们远离疾病。 Why did she write that? 她为什么要写这些东西呢? Who were the women that Lin Qiaozhi thought needed this advice? 林巧稚认为哪些妇女会需要这些忠告呢? I looked carefully at the text and realized that it was intended for women in the countryside. 我细细地看了这篇文章, 了解到那是为农村妇女写的。Perhaps if they had an emergency they could not reach a doctor.也 许是她们在遇到紧急情况时找不到医生。 Suddenly it hit me how difficult it was for a woman to get medical training at that time. 突然我想起,在那个年代,一个女子去学医是多么困难啊!That was a generation when girls' education was always placed second to boys'. 那可是一个女性受教育总是排在男性之后的年 代。 Was she so much cleverer than anyone else? 难道她比别人要聪明得多? Further reading made me realize that it was hard work and determination as well as her gentle nature that got her into medical school. 进一步阅读使我了解到,是苦干、决心和善良的天性使她走进医学院的 大门。What made her succeed later on was the kindness and consideration she showed to all her patients. 后来使她成功的是她对所有病人献出的爱心和体贴。There was story after story of how Lin Qiaozhi, tired after a day's work, went late at night to deliver a baby for a poor family who could not pay her.数不胜数的故事讲述着林巧稚如何在劳累一天之后,又在深夜去为贫 苦家庭的产妇接生,而这些家庭是不可能给她报酬的。 By now I could not wait to find out more about her. 现在我迫不及待地想多了解一 些有关她的情况。 I discovered that Lin Qiaozhi had devoted her whole life to her patients and had chosen not to have a family of her own. 我发现林巧稚把毕生都奉献给了病人, 而自己却选

3.必修四 Unit2 A PIONEER FOR ALL PEOPLE 造福全人类的先驱者 Although he is one of China's most famous scientists, Yuan Longping considers himself a farmer, for he works the land to do his research. 尽管是中国最著名的科学家之一,袁隆平仍然 认为自己是个农民, 因为他在田里耕作, 进行科学研究。 Indeed, his sunburnt face and arms and his slim, strong body are just like those of millions of Chinese farmers, for whom he has struggled for the past five decades. 的确,他被太阳晒得黝黑的脸庞和和手臂,以及他那瘦削而又结实 的身躯,就跟其他千百万中国农民一样,过去50年来,他一直在努力帮助他们。Dr Yuan Longping grows what is called super hybrid rice. 袁博士种植的是被称为―超级杂交水稻的‖的 稻种。 In 1974, he became the first agricultural pioneer in the world to grow rice that has a high output. 1974年,他成为世界上第一位种植高产水稻的农业先锋。This special strain of rice makes it possible to produce one-third more of the crop in the same fields. 这种特殊的稻种使得 同样的田地多收获三分之一的产量。Now more than 60% of the rice produced in China each year is from this hybrid strain.如今中国每年出产的稻米有60%以上出自这种杂交稻种。 Born in a poor farmer's family in 1930, Dr Yuan graduated from Southwest Agricultural College in 1953. 袁博士1930年出生,1953年毕业于西南农学院。Since then, finding ways to grow more rice has been his life goal. 从那时起,找到水稻高产的方法就成为他一生的目标。 As a young man, he saw the great need for increasing the rice output. 年轻时,他就看到了稻田 增产的巨大需求。 At that time, hunger was a disturbing problem in many parts of the countryside. 当时,饥荒是许多农村地区面临的严重问题。Dr Yuan searched for a way to increase rice harvests without expanding the area of the fields. 袁博士要在不增加土地面积的基 础上寻求达到增收稻谷的途径。 In 1950, Chinese farmers could produce only fifty million tons of rice. 1950年,中国农民只能生产五千万吨稻谷, In a recent harvest, however, nearly two hundred million tons of rice was produced. 而近来却生产了将近两亿吨稻谷。These increased

harvests mean that 22% of the world's people are fed from just 7% of the farmland in China. 这一 粮食产量的增加意味着中国仅仅7%的耕地养活了世界22%的人口。 Dr Yuan is now circulating his knowledge in India, Vietnam and many other less developed countries to increase their rice harvests. 袁博士现在在印度、越南和很多其他欠发达国家传播提高水稻产量的知 识。 Thanks to his research, the UN has more tools in the battle to rid the world of hunger. 多亏 了他的研究, 联合国在消除世界饥饿的战斗中有了更多的办法。 Using his hybrid rice, farmers are producing harvests twice as large as before. 用他的杂交水稻种子,农民种出的粮食比以前 多了一倍。 Dr Yuan is quite satisfied with his life. 袁博士很满意他的生活。 However, he doesn't care about being famous. He feels it gives him less freedom to do his research. 但是, 他对成名并不在 意, 并且觉得出名后搞科研就不那么自由了。 He would much rather keep time for his hobbles. 他宁愿把时间花在自己的业余爱好上。He enjoys listening to violin music, playing mah-jong, swimming and reading. 他喜欢听小提琴乐曲、打麻将、游泳和读书。Spending money on himself or leading a comfortable life also means very little to him. 在自己身上花钱或者享受舒 适的生活对袁博士来说意义不大。Indeed, he believes that a person with too much money has more rather than fewer troubles. 事实上,他认为一个人有了太多钱,他的麻烦事只会更多, 而不是更少。 He therefore gives millions of yuan to equip others for their research in agriculture. 于是,他拿出好几百万元帮助其他人进行农业科学研究。 Just dreaming for things, however, costs nothing. 梦想是不花本钱的。 Long ago Dr yuan had a dream about rice plants as tall as sorghum. Each ear of rice was as big as an ear of corn and each grain of rice was as huge as a peanut. 很久以前,袁博士曾在梦里看到水稻长得像高粱一 样高,稻穗跟玉米穗一样大,而每粒稻谷像花生米一样大。 Dr Yuan awoke from his dream with the hope of producing a kind of rice that could feed more people. 袁博士从梦中醒来,希望 能种植一种能养活更多人的水稻。Now, many years later, Dr Yuan has another dream: to export his rice so that it can be grown around the globe. 在很多年后的今天,袁博士还有另外一个梦 想,那就是他的稻谷可以出口并长遍全球。One dream is not always enough, especially for a person who loves and cares for his people.一个梦想总是不够的, 尤其对一个热爱和关心人民的 人来说更是如此。

4.必修四 Unit2 CHEMICAL OR ORGANIC FARMING? 化学耕作还是有机耕作?

Over the past half century, using chemical fertilizers has become very common in farming. 在过 去的半个世纪里,在耕作中使用化肥已经非常普遍。Many farmers welcomed them as a great way to stop crop disease and increase production. 很多农民喜欢使用化肥。把化肥作为防治农 作物病虫害和提高产量的重要手段。 Recently, however, scientists have been finding that long-term use of these fertilizers can cause damage to the land and, even more dangerous, to people's health. 然而, 最近科学家发现长期使用这些肥料会造成土地受损, 甚至更危险的是, 会对人们的健康造成危害。 What are some of the problems caused by chemical fertilizers? 化肥带来的问题有哪 些呢? First, they damage the land by killing the helpful bacteria and pests as well as the harmful ones. 首先,化肥在杀死病菌和害虫的同时也会杀死有益的细菌和昆虫,从而破坏土地。 Chemicals also stay in the ground and underground water for a long time. 化学物质还会在地里 和地下水中保存很长时间,This affects crops and, therefore, animals and humans, since chemicals get inside the crops and cannot just be washed off. 而这会影响到庄稼, 进而影响到动 物和人类, 因为化学成分会进入到农作物中, 并且不能被冲洗掉。 These chemicals in the food supply build up in people's bodies over time. 随着时间的推移,食物中的这些化学成分会在人 体中堆积。Many of these chemicals can lead to cancer or other illnesses. 很多化学成分能导致 癌症或其他疾病。 In addition, fruit, vegetables and other food grown with chemical fertilizers usually grow too fast to be full of much nutrition. 另外,施过化肥的水果、蔬菜和其他食物通 常生长得过快而营养不足。 They may look beautiful, but inside there is usually more water than vitamins and minerals. 它们表面上很好看,但里面通常是含过多的水分,而不是维生素和矿 物质。 With these discoveries, some farmers and many customers are beginning to turn to organic farming. 由于这些发现,一些农民和消费者开始转向有机耕作。 Organic farming is simply farming without using any chemicals. 有机耕作就是不用任何化学肥料的耕作。They focus on keeping their soil rich and free of disease. 农民关心的是保持土壤肥沃并且免受病害。 A healthy soil reduces disease and helps crops grow strong and healthy. 健康的土壤会减少病虫 害并且帮助农作物茁壮成长。 Organic farmers, therefore, often prefer using natural waste from animals as fertilizer. 因此,有机耕作的农民通常喜欢把天然的动物粪便当作肥料。 They feel that this makes the soil in their fields richer in minerals and so more fertile. 他们认为这样会使 地里的土壤更富含矿物质,因而也会更加肥沃, This also keeps the air, soil, water and crops

free from chemicals.同时还可以让空气、土壤、水以及农作物不受化学物质的污染。 Organic farmers also use many other methods to keep the soil fertile. 有机耕作的农民 也使用很多其他的方法来保持土地肥沃。They often change the kind of crop in each field every few years, for example, growing corn or wheat and then the next year peas or soybeans. 在同一 块地里,他们经常每隔几年就换种农作物。 例如,种玉米和小麦后来年再改种豌豆或大豆。 Crops such as peas or soybeans put important minerals back into the soil, making it ready for crops such as wheat or corn that need rich and fertile soil. 像豌豆或大豆这样的农作物将重要的 矿物质带回土壤,从而使之适宜于种植要求土地肥沃的农作物,比如玉米或小麦。 Organic farmers also plant crops to use different levels of soil, for example, planting peanuts that use the ground's surface followed by vegetables that put down deep roots. 有机耕作的农民还种植多种 农作物来利用不同层次的土壤。比如,他们先种植生长于浅层土壤的花生,然后再种植生根 于深层土壤的蔬菜。 Some organic farmers prefer planting grass between crops to prevent wind or water from carrying away the soil, and then leaving it in the ground to become a natural fertilizer for the next year's crop 还有一些有机耕作者喜欢在农作物之间种草,以防止水土流失,并且 把草留在地里,从而成为来年农作物的天然肥料。 These many different organic farming methods have the same goal: to grow good food and avoid damaging the environment or people's health. 这些不同的有机耕作的方法有着同样的目标:种植好的粮食,避免损害环境或者人 们的健康。

5.必修四 Unit 3 A MASTER OF NONVERBAL HUMOUR 无声的幽默的大师 As Victor Hugo once said, "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face",维克 多· 雨果曾经说过:―笑容如同阳光,驱散人们脸上的阴霾‖and up to now nobody has been able to do this better than Charlie Chaplin. 关于这一点,直到今天也没有人比查理· 卓别林做的更 好。 He brightened the lives of Americans and British through two world wars and the hard years in between. 在两次世界大战及中间艰苦的岁月里,他给英国和美国人民带来了快乐。He made people laugh at a time when they felt depressed, so they could feel more content with their lives. 在人们感到沮丧的时候, 查理使人们开怀大笑, 于是他们对自己的生活感到更加满足。 Not that Charlie's own life was easy! 然而卓别林自己的生活也并不容易。 was born in He a poor family in 1889.

to sing as soon as he could speak and dance as soon as he could walk. 你可能会感到惊奇,查理 刚会说话时大人就教他唱歌,他刚会走路时大人就教他跳舞。 Such training was common in acting families at this time, especially when the family income was often uncertain. 这样的训练 在当时的演员家庭中是很普遍的,尤其是在家庭收入经常不稳定的时候。 Unfortunately his father died, leaving the family even worse off, so Charlie spent his childhood looking after his sick mother and his brother. 不幸的是他的父亲去世了,使得他的家庭更加艰难,所以查理在童年 时期就要照顾生病的母亲和弟弟。 By his teens, Charlie had, through his humour, become one of the most popular child actors in England. 在十多岁的时候, 凭借着自己的幽默, 查理已经在 英国成为最受欢迎的童星之一。 He could mime and act the fool doing ordinary everyday tasks. 他能够不说话而仅靠动作来模仿傻子做日常的任务。No one was ever bored watching him -his subtle acting made everything entertaining. 看他的表演没有人会感到无聊——他巧妙的表演 使得一切都那么滑稽可笑。 As time went by, he began making films. .随着时间的推移, 他开始拍电影。 grew more He and more popular as his charming character, the little tramp, became known throughout the world. 他塑造的可爱的―小流浪汉‖角色开始闻名于世,而查理越来越受欢迎。The tramp, a poor, homeless man with a moustache, wore large trousers, worn-out shoes and a small round black hat. He walked around stilly carrying a walking stick. 这个穷苦的无家可归的小流浪汉,留着小胡 子,穿着大裤子、破鞋子,头顶着黑色的小圆帽。他手里拿着一根手杖迈着僵硬的步伐四处 走动。 This character was a social failure but was loved for his optimism and determination to overcome all difficulties. 这个角色是个社会生活中的失败者,但他乐观的精神和战胜困难的 决心使他受到人们的喜爱。 He was the underdog who was kind even when others were unkind to him. 面对并不善待他的人,这个弱者依然保持友善的态度。 How did the little tramp make a sad situation entertaining? 然而这个小流浪汉是如何把悲 凉的遭遇变得滑稽可笑的呢? Here is an example from one of his most famous films, The Gold Rush. 这里有一个例子, 来自于他最著名的电影之一 《淘金记》 It is the mid-nineteenth 。 century and gold has just been discovered in California. 19世纪中叶,在加利福尼亚州发现了金 子。 Like so many others, the little tramp and his friend have rushed there in search of gold, but without success. 像其他很多人一样,小流浪汉和他的朋友也涌向那里去淘金,但却没有成 功。Instead they are hiding in a small hut on the edge of a mountain during a snowstorm with nothing to eat. 相反, 他们被暴风雪困在山边的一个小木屋中, 没有任何东西可吃。 They are

so hungry that they try boiling a pair of leather shoes for their dinner. 他们饿极了,只好煮了一 双皮鞋来充饥。 Charlie first picks out the laces and eats them as if they were spaghetti. 查理首 先挑出鞋带来吃, 像吃意大利面条一样。 Then he cuts off the leather top of the shoe as if it were the finest steak. 然后他把皮鞋上端的皮子切下来, 就像切下一块最好的牛排。 Finally he tries cutting and chewing the bottom of the shoe. 最后他试着把鞋底割下来嚼着吃。He eats each mouthful with great enjoyment. 他每一口都嚼得津津有味。 The acting is so convincing that it makes you believe that it is one of the best meals he has ever tasted! 查理的表演是那么有说服 力,以至于你会相信这顿饭是他所吃过的最美味的一餐!
