1. 认识这个词(基础篇)

词:enable

英英释义:To make it possible for someone to do something, or for something to happen.

例句:'One Word A Day' enables English learners to take a fresh look at the words that are overlooked.

2. 体会这个词 (进阶篇)

“enable”是及物动词,从词形可以看得出它由“en”和“able”两部分组成,意思是“让/使某人做某事,使......成为可能”。它经常可以用来替换同义词 let 和 allow,在口语和写作中都可以使用。

比如,苹果的 AppleCare+ 服务可以让用户延长硬件保修时长,就可以说:

AppleCare+ enables Apple customers to extend the one-year hardware repair coverage to up to two years.

微信朋友圈让用户能够轻松分享自己的想法和生活,就可以是:

WeChat Moments, a popular WeChat feature, enables users to share with their friends what they are up to and what is on their mind.(注意:“WeChat Moments”是“微信朋友圈”的英文名称,是专有名词,表示一个功能,所以谓语动词用了单三。)

再比如,《经济学人》是这样解释社交网络是怎样帮助广告商做精准投放的:

Social networks like Facebook and Twitter track people’s movements around the web and enable advertisers to reach users via tailored advertisements.

3. 从认识到会用(作业)

1)翻译下面的句子:

雅思考试可以让考生知道他们的英语水平如何。

(参考翻译:IELTS enables examinees to get a sense of how proficient their English is. 或者:IELTS enables examinees/candidates to measure their English proficiency.)

2)结合自己的生活、学习、工作、兴趣等,先想象在什么语境下会用到这个表达,然后再进行造句。

场景:科技的快速发展使得我们的生活更方便

造句:The rapid growth of technology enables our lives more convenient.

场景:媒体的宣传使得政客们更容易赢得总统的竞选。

造句:The media’s propaganda enable the politician to win the presidential campaigns easier.
