免费送你最全的老友记笔记 - 想学英语看这里

在扎克伯格的妻子普莉希拉·陈的个人主页上有这样一句名言:

“Tell me , I will forget; show me , I may remember; involve me, I will understand."

碰巧我们的老祖宗也说过类似的话:

“不闻不若闻之,闻之不若见之,见之不若知之,知之不若行之,学至于行之而止矣。”

我们学英语也是一样的道理,拿看美剧学英语来说:

只是单纯去看可能只能培养一点语感;看完之后把台词记下来也许只会增长知识;把记下来的台词应用到生活里去才算是真正学会了。

所以本着这个原则,我在做《老友记》的笔记的时候会遵循如下三步:

1. 裸听一遍全文,对整体内容有大体把握,知道哪里没有听懂,就是要重点做笔记的地方;

2. 把台词从头到尾穿一遍,把不认识的单词都标记清楚。

3. 确定重点要学习的词汇,并进行用法拓展,也就是所谓的去实际应用。在拓展的过程中可能还会遇到新的单词和用法,不妨一起记下来,扩充词汇量。

下面就是我对第一季第十三集的老友记做的笔记,希望能够给大家带来帮助。更多的老友记笔记可以参考我之前写的《看老友记学英语》系列 - 和我一起看老友记学英语吧 - 从第一季第一集开始 (001)
