老外谈语言学习:学英语要“温故而知新”

导学:古语说:“温故而知新”,可见复习对于学习的重要性。同理,学一门外语,反复巩固复习也是少不了的。每天背了20个单词与你每天掌握了2个单词,哪个更有成就感?本文外籍Alexander给中国英语学习者详谈了“复习”在语言学习中的必要性,以及告诉大家怎样去有效“复习”。

Expanding Your Language: Reviewing

Take a moment, put down your pencil or pen, close your textbooks and notebooks and ask yourself this question:

What is more important: only learning new language, or reviewing previous lessons?

停下笔,关上课本,问自己一个问题:学习新语言和复习以前的课程,哪个更重要?

All too often we get caught up in the idea that we need to learn as many new vocabulary terms, grammar rules and sentence structures as we can each and every day that we can forget to look back and review what we learned previously. Just why is this important? There is an old saying that says it best with:

If you don’t use it, you lose it.

我们只想着每天尽可能地记更多的单词,语法和句子结构,却忘记了回顾我们之前所学过的。为什么复习这么重要?一个谚语可以很好解释这点:你如果不用它,就一定会失去它。

While it may feel good to keep pushing through 100 new vocabulary words each day, attending eight hours of lessons seven days a week and writing down every new thing you learn 10 times this may not be the most effective way for you to develop your language skills. Will you learn new things this way? Absolutely! But it may take much longer and be more difficult than if you incorporate regular review periods into your studies.

每天记100个新单词,上一周七天一天8小时的课程,把所学到的单词写10遍。这并不是学语言最有效的方法。这会占用很多时间,会使复习变得更难。

As a test try this:

Give your English study notebook to a friend and have them open up to a random page you wrote over one month ago (ideally two months or more) and have them ask you about some of the language you wrote down at that time. If you have difficulties remembering some of the things don’t worry, that’s perfectly natural.  It may be a sign it’s time for some more review time, though.

做个测试:把你的英语课本给你的朋友,让他们随便翻开一页,让他们问你以前你写过的笔记。如果你有不记得了,不用担心,那是很自然的。这表明你需要时间复习一下以前所学过的内容了。
