填词版的完形填空,关于失业之后该如何开始新的职业生活的。这些文章读多了,对人是会有启发的。此外,这种题型也很考验人的语言功底,短语积累和基本的语法知识是必不可少的。
31题,考查的是固定搭配。这里的意思很明显,是指这个女的在自己的职位上被开除了,make redundant是商业英语里的地道说法:Follow a fair and legal process when it's necessary to dismiss staff on the grounds of redundancy.如果是made redundant,后面的介词用from,可以看个例句:Just been made redundant from your last job
32题,比较简单,see as,将什么视为。将失业视为改变的积极动力。
33题,虽然是艰难的一课(a tough lesson),还是改变了我的职业方向(redirect my career),有转折的意思,althoughthough
34题,这是个定语从句,当中要填入的是关系代词。给了我需要的时间,来弄明白我的职业目标放在哪。用where
35题,这题很明显,举例的,用such as
36题,分析这个句子的成分。前面是a key consideration,做主语,有个was,是谓语,was后面的是宾语。在宾语成分里出现了it would be to balance…..这样的完整的句子,所以空格部分应该填入一个词,引导从句,并且这个词所接从句必须倒装。满足这个要求的词是how。(How引导的状语从句要求部分倒装)
37题,network with,词组:connect as or operate with a network,将…连成网。
38题,还是个定语从句。一个完整的句子,缺乏关系代词来衔接,要用which。关键在于要识别出这里的定语从句,否则很难往那上面想。在做这类题目时,如果一个句子各种成分都很齐全,而且比较长,那么是从句的可能性很大,要根据上下文的意思来判断填入的代词。题目做多了,会培养出这方面的警觉性。
39题,two years on,固定说法,两年以后,两年过去了。
40题,很容易联想到even if或者是even though,只能填if不能填though。这是两个意思和用法都不同的词组。even if,即便,带有假设的意思,后面接虚拟语气;even though,即使,表示既定事实。40空后面的句子是虚拟语气,因此这个题目只能填if
