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!

China urges Japan to face up to history after it wins UNESCO heritage bid

BONN, Germany -- China urged Japan to face up to its history and take measures to uphold dignity of forced labor victims after UNESCO's World Heritage Committee decided to inscribe Japan's controversial "Meiji Industrial Revolution Sites" into the World Heritage List here on Sunday.
A fortress island near Nagasaki has been awarded world heritage status.
Japan had applied to list Gunkanjima, or Battleship Island, as a world heritage location along with almost two dozen other sites to illustrate the country's industrial revolution during the 19th century.
But Seoul had objected to the listing unless the role of Korean prisoners forced to work there during World War II was formally recognized.
Japan was forced to admit in a statement during the meeting that "there were a large number of Koreans and others who were brought against their will and forced to work under harsh conditions in 1940s at some of the sites, and, during the World War II, the Government of Japan also implemented its policy of requisition."
Japan pledged to "sincerely respond" to recommendations from the ICOMOS, the World Heritage Committee's advisory body, to develop "interpretive strategy" that allows "an understanding of the full history of each site", and to take "appropriate measures" to remember victims such as establishing information centers.
Zhang Xiuqin, Chinese Ambassador and Permanent Delegate to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), said she had noticed that Japan acknowledged the forced labor history which was ignored in its nomination documents of the heritage sites.
"However, there still lacks an adequate account from Japan of the whole facts surrounding the use of forced labor," she said, adding that it's outrageous that there are still voices in Japan attempting to deny the fact of forced labor.
"I urged Japan to face up to the history, and to take concrete measures to allow an understanding of the full history of each site...and to make sure that the sufferings of each and every one of the forced labor are remembered, and their dignity upheld," she added.

I understand that once Japanese government admit the wrongdoings they did before, the spirit of the whole nation, of their people, especially who believed in the Emperor with all their lives, would have collapsed. But on the other hand, the post war Japanese will never stand up if they refuse to face up to the history with sincerely respond. And I suppose that's why people alway say, "German on their knees are taller than Japanese standing on their feet."
