当新概念英语遇上思维导图(刻意练习7/96)

 lesson 7   Too late

(一)文本阅读

    The plane was late and detectives were waiting at the airport all morning. They were expecting a valuable parcel of diamonds from South Africa. A few hours earlier, someone had told the police that thieves would try to steal the diamonds. When the plane arrived, some of the detectives were waiting inside the main building while others were waiting on the airfield. Two men took the parcel off the plane and carried it into the Customs House. While two detectives were keeping guard at the door, two others opened the parcel. To their surprise, the precious parcel was full of stones and sand!

(二)抓重点:文字化

从文章结构上看,这节课从时间上来划分可以分为4段,分别为几个小时前、飞机到达前、飞机到达时以及飞机到达后。在飞机到达前就有人打电话告诉警察,说贼要来偷钻石。而在飞机到达前大家都非常紧张,加上飞机的晚点更加增加了紧张的情绪,侦探们都等待着。飞机降落了,侦探们兵分几路,有人在机场主楼里守候,有人在机场跑道上待命。而当两个人从飞机上带下那个全员关注的包裹时进入海关大楼时,2个侦探守在大门口,另外2个侦探打开包括却只发现这个包裹只有石头和沙子。而至于那块无比珍贵的钻石,到底是在出发前已经被大盗偷走,还是有人打电话故意恶作剧呢?


(三) 4宫格可视化:看图说话


(四) 实际操练:情景模拟

背诵的最好效果就是学会应用。所以接下来的时间,我们要开始情景模拟了哦

——What do you usually do on the last day of the year?

——We usually go to People's Square to welcome the New Year.

——Then, what do you do on the Square?

——People usually wait for the clock to strike twelve. You know?

——On last New Year's Eve, there was something interesting happened.

——What happened?

——At five to twelve, the clock stopped.

——The big minute hand did not move. How did everyone react? We waited and waited until

someone suddenly shouted, "It's two minutes past twelve! The clock has stopped!

——It was really an unforgettable experience.
