  1. 000139 文科段子:艺术类音乐

  It may seem strange that we're discussing music from a Broadway production in this class, "The Lion King" especially, since it's based on a popular Hollywood movie. I mean music preformed for Broadway theater in the heart of New York city surely would seem to be in the western tradition of popular music and not have much in common with the music we have been studying in this course, such as gamelan music of Indonesia, or Zulu chants of South Africa, music that developed outside the western tradition of Europe and America. But in fact, musicians have a long-standing tradition of borrowing front one another's cultures. And this production's director intentionally included both western and non-western music. That way, some of the rhythms, instrument, and harmonies typical of non-western music contrast with and complement popular music more familiar to audiences in North America and Europe, music like rock, jazz or Broadway style show tunes. So I want to spend the rest of this class and most of the next one on the music from the show "The Lion King" as a way of summarizing some of the technical distinctions between typical western music and the non-western music that we've been studying. Now the African influence on the music is clear. The story takes place in Africa. So the director got a South African composer to write songs with a distinctly African sound. And the songs even include words from African languages. But we'll get back to the African influence later. First let's turn to the music that was written for the shadow puppet scenes in "The Lion King", music based on the Indonesian music used in the shadow puppet theater of that region

  2. 000143 理科段子:天文学

  In ancient times, many people believed the earth was a flat disc. Well over 2,000 years ago; the ancient Greek philosophers were able to put forward two good arguments proving that it was not. Direct observations of heavenly bodies were the basis of both these arguments. First, the Greeks knew that during eclipses of the moon the earth was between the sun and the moon, and they saw that during these eclipses, the earth's shadow on the moon was always round, they realized that this could be true only if the earth was spherical, It the earth was a flat disc, then its shadow during eclipses would not be a prefect circle; it would be stretched out into a long ellipse. The second argument was based on what the Greeks saw during their travels. They noticed that the North Star, or Polaris, appeared lower in the sky when they traveled south, in the more northerly regions, the North Star appeared to them to be much higher in the sky. By the way, it was also from this difference in the apparent position of the North Star that the Greeks first calculated the approximate distance around the circumference of the earth, a figure recorded in ancient documents says 400.000 stadium, that's the plural of the world stadium. Today, it's not known exactly what length one stadium represents, but let's say it was about 200 meters, the length of many athletic stadiums. This would make the Greek's estimate about twice the figure accepted today, a very good estimate for those writing so long before even the first telescope was invented.

上大学的时候没有好好学习,所以现在四级都没有过。面试单位又要求有英语水平的证书,所以就报了托福。通过自己复习,参加了两次考试。但是,都不得其法,以失败告终。很偶然的机会看到了外语教育网托福辅导的试听课,所以就试听了一下。然后,果断地报了课。经过两个月的系统学习,我的托福成绩从原来的78分,增长到现在的104分。感激之情溢于言表,祝愿网校越来越好!
学员 giaown:
感谢外语教育网的老师,是你们帮助我通过了托福考试,是你们让我的留学梦更近了一步。每一次听课、答疑,都让我受益匪浅。衷心地祝愿网校越办越好,老师们身体健康!

当时决定出国时,还有些不舍。因为毕竟同学都在这儿,朋友也在这儿,冷不丁地到一个自己不认识的地方,和自己不一样肤色的人相处,心中还有些恐惧!但是,后来想想,用这几年到外面的世界瞧一瞧也是不错的选择,就开始备考托福。自认为英语水平还好,因为起码没有掉下过年级前十。托福备考的两个月时间,外语教育网的老师帮助我很多,尤其是课后答疑的老师,真心感谢你们。首战成绩110,我还是很满意的。希望今年我有一个不一样的夏天,也祝愿网校越来越好!

刚查的成绩,托福105分,感谢外语教育网老师对我的帮助。我的英语基础很差,高中月考成绩从来就没有及格过。但是,为了以后考虑,家人还是希望我到海外学习。看着爸妈忙碌地为我选学校,选专业,自己觉得很是愧疚。因为已经参加过两次托福考试,考得都很惨。为了不耽误学校上课,我就报了外语教育网的托福课程。这次居然考到了105分,自己都不敢相信。努力终于得到了回报,很开心,但更要感谢外语教育网的老师们,感谢你们陪我走过最艰难的日子。
