【真题再现】

(不妨可以试着自己做一做,做过才能看下面的答案和解析哦!)

Millions of Americans are entering their 60s and are more concerned than ever about retirement. They know they need to save, but how much? And what exactly are they saving for-to spend more time __36__ the grandkids, go traveling, or start another career? It turns out that husbands and wives may have __37__ different ideas about the subject.

 

The deepest divide is in the way spouses envisage their lifestyle in their later years. Fidelity Investments Inc. found 41 percent of the 500 couples it surveyed __38__ on whether both or at least one spouse will work in retirement. Wives are generally right regarding their husbands' retirement age, but men __39__ the age their wives will be when they stop working. And husbands are slightly more __40__ about their standard of living than wives are.

 

Busy juggling (穷于应付) and families, most couples don't take time to sit down, __41__ or together, and think about what they would like to do 5, 10 or 20 years from now. They __42__ they are on the same page, but the __43__ is they have avoided even talking about it.

 

If you are self-employed or in a job that doesn't have a standard retirement age, you may be more apt to delay thinking about these issues. It is often a __44__ retirement date that provides the catalyst (催化剂) to start planning. Getting laid off or accepting an early-retirement __45__ can force your hand. But don't wait until you get a severance (遣散费) check to begin planning.

 

一、认真阅读文章首段首句

文章首段首句往往会告知文章的背景或是主题,掌握首段首句可以帮助我们确定文章接下来要谈论的内容,做到心中有数,不至于理解错误。如开篇Millions of Americans are entering their 60s and are more concerned than ever about retirement. 这句话就告知我们这篇文章是谈论美国老龄人的退休问题。如果大家通过首段首句不能确定文章主题,可以看一下首段全部内容或是各个自然段的首尾句。

 

二、阅读选项,词性分

我们先来看一下选项特点:

1、10个空格考察的全部是实词

2.、词性分配的基本比例: 3-4个名词正确答案+1-2个名词干扰答案;3-4个动词正确答案+1-2个动词干扰答案;2-3个形容词正确答案+1个形容词干扰答案;2-3个副词正确答案+1个副词干扰答案。

 

根据选线特点我们把选项中的单词分为四类:动词、名词、形容词、副词。

在这套题中的单词四类为:

动词:assume, disagree, illustrating, observe, spoiling, underestimate
形容词:confidential, forthcoming, optimistic
副词:mysteriously, radically, separately
名词:formula, package, reality

 

三、结合空格前后内容,寻找线索

注意空格前后的结构和搭配,在选词时,要保证所选的词的词性、单复数、时态和意义均符合文章上下文要求,从而保证文章前后通顺、流畅。同时在做题过程中可以先确定自己比较有把握的单词,这样通过排除法逐渐减少备选词汇。

 

四、重读全文,查漏补缺,核实答案

选择完成后,考生如果有时间可以核查全文,重点看不确定的单词是否选择合理。如果没有时间,大家就只需看自己做题时把握不大的单词,并根据文章进行推敲核实。

 

以上是关于英语六级考试中选词填空这一题型同学们需要掌握的解题步骤。大家在平时练习时,要注意运用这些技巧进行解题,这样你会发现选词填空还是很容易拿分的。
