因为想考翻译证,最近很喜欢看China Daily,也很喜欢把China Daily中颇有意思的新闻抄录下来练笔。

之前用茄子说的方法,把新闻中不懂的单词抄下来,以首字母排好,然后按字母顺序一个一个地背。这样在背完A字母的单词后,看新闻就不会再出现一个以A开头而我又不懂的单词了。这个方法听起来好像很玄乎,但真照着做了大半年,发现现在看新闻真的几乎没有一个不懂的以A开头的单词了。好神奇……

当然,我不是说茄子说这个方法真有多好,只是觉得把背单词和看新闻结合在一起,还挺有意思的,而且从某个奇怪的方面而言,可是相当有成就感的哦!因为新闻的用语比较固定,同一类话题中,单词出现的重复率可是相当高的哦!

熊孩子,趁着立夏的热量,开始学习吧!

Telecom carriers plan to reduce charges called 'modest'

Three biggest telecom carriers plan to reduce Internet usage charge has come under criticism with users calling it "modest" and "lacking sincerity", according to Xinhua news agency.

The companies unveiled their price reduction plans on Friday for broadband Internet, mobile data traffic and roaming services, after Premier Li Keqiang called for cheaper and faster Internet connection.

China Mobile introduced a 10-yuan ($1.61) cellular package for 1GB data used at night between 11 pm and 7 am, and 50 yuan for 2GB data among 4G users.

China Telecom said it would offer users a 20-yuan package for 3GB data used at night, and its average broadband speed will rise from 11Mbps (megabytes per second) to 20Mbps with a 35 percent rate cut.

For China Unicom users, the original 2G and 3G users will be allowed to upgrade to 4G services and the carrier will offer a new cellular package that will charge 10 yuan for 1.5GB local data each month for six months.

The “night traffic” plans have drawn the most criticism among users, according to Xinhua, which quoted Internet users as saying they won’t need the plan as they are already at home with access to Wi-Fi.

"Do the carriers really show their sincerity in the cut?" asked Xinhua, adding that some offers are not clear enough and are ill-designed.

China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Friday pledged to elevate the country's broadband speed and coverage, while lowering Internet fees.
