暑假六级阅读训练3

2014-07-14    来源:网络    【      托福雅思口语高分过

【原文】
People traveling long distances frequently have to decide whether they would prefer to go by land. sea, or air. Hardly can anyone positively enjoy sitting in a train for mort than a few hours. Train compartments soon get cramped and stuffy. Reading is only a partial solution. for the monotonous rhythm of the wheels clicking on the rails soon lulls you to sleep. During the day, sleep comes in snatches. At night when you really wish to go to sleep you rarely manage to do so. Inevitably you arrive at your destination almost exhausted. Long car journey are even less pleasant. for it is quite impossible even to read. On motorways you can. at least, travel fairly safely at high speeds, but more often than not, the greater pan of the journey is spent on narrow. bumpy roads which are crowded wich traffic. By comparison, trips by sea offer a great variety of civilized comforts. You can stretch your legs on the spacious decks, play games, swim, meet interesting people and enjoy good food-always assuming, of course, that the sea is calm. If it is not and you are likely to get seasick; no form of transport could be worse. Even if you travel in ideal weather, sea journeys take a long time. Relatively few people are prepared to sacrifice up to a third of their holidays for the pleasure of traveling on a ship.

Airplanes have the reputation of being dangerous and expensive. But nothing can match them for speed and comfort. Traveling at a height of 30,000 feet. far above the clouds, and at over 500 miles an hour is an exhilarating experience. For a few hours, you settle back in a deep armchair to enjoy the flight. The real escapist can watch a free film show and sip champagne on some services. But even when such refinements are not available, there is plenty to keep you occupied. An airplane offers you an unusual and breathtaking view of the world. You soar effortlessly over high mountains and deep valleys. You really see the shape of the land. If the landscape is hidden from the view. you can enjoy the extraordinary sight of unbroken cloud plains that stretch om for miles before you, while the sun shines brilliantly in a clear sky. The journey is so smooth that there is nothing to prevent you from reading or sleeping. However you decide to spend your time, one thing is certain: you will arrive at your destination fresh and uncrumpled.

【参考译文】
[5]人们长途旅行的时候通常都要做出决定,选择究竟走陆路、走海路还是坐飞机。[l]几乎很少有人真正喜欢坐超过几个钟头的火车。火车车厢很快就挤满人,让人感到气闷!读书并不能解决所有问题,因为车轮在轨道上单调而有节奏的咔嗒咔嗒声会催人入眠。白天睡眠断断续续,晚上你真的想睡时却很难入睡。你到达目的地的时候,几乎不可避免地精疲力竭。[2]坐长途汽车的乐趣更少,因为你几乎不可能在车上读书。车子走高速公路的时候,至少车速快而且安全,但往往旅程的大半得走狭窄、颠簸而又交通拥挤的路。相对而言,坐邮轮旅行就优雅舒适得多了。你可以在宽敞的甲板上伸展双脚,你可以玩游戏、游泳、碰上各种有趣的人和享用美食——当然,这些的前提都得是:海洋是平静的。[3]否则,你很可能晕船,那将是最糟糕的。但是,即使是天气很好,走海路也要花很长时问。相对而言,很少有人打算牺牲三分一以上的假期来享受海上旅行的快乐。

人人都知道坐飞机既危险又花钱。但没有什么比坐飞机旅行来得更快捷更舒适了。在3万英尺高空的云层之上,以超过500英里的时速旅行是很令人惬意的。你可以舒舒服服地深深地靠在扶手椅上飞行几个小时。真正想摆脱俗务的人在旅途中能享受些服务,看一出免费电影,或者是啜饮香槟酒。即使没有这么高档的享受,也有许多办法让你打发时光。在飞机上你可以看到不同寻常、令人惊诧的世界风景。你毫不费力地飞过高山和深谷。你真切看到大地的形状。如果你看不到风景,你也可以欣赏到非常特别的、无边无际的云海,在你的眼前延绵数英里,太阳在晴朗的天空上发出耀眼的光芒。航程非常平稳,你可以安心阅读和睡觉。[4]不管你怎样安排你的时间,有一件事是确定无疑的:你将会精神焕发、毫无倦意地到达目的地。
