汉语是我们的母语，我们从学英语开始， 就是用汉语来解释和记忆英语的。变 “用汉语解释和记忆英语”为“用英语 解释和记忆英语”。避免了将英语转换 为另一种语言——汉语所带来的不便和 时间耗费。不但提高了效率，而且久而 久之，有可能在头脑中建立起两种思维 系统，即在汉语思维之外，还可以逐步 建立起独立的英语思维系统。
用英语解释和记忆英语，本身就是在学 习和运用英语，对提高英语语感和英语 的阅读理解能力以及综合运用能力很有 好处，是一举多得的好方法。真正做到 了用英语品味英语，越品越有味；用英 语理解英语，理解更准确。鉴于本环节 初次尝试此种设置，可能有些学生对英 语解释不能完全理解，为降低难度，英 文解释后还配有中文解释，以方便学生 回顾早读课中已预习过的单词，进一步 加深记忆。

阅读时，可根据阅读任务的不同， 综合运用略读(skimming)与扫读 (scanning) 。提高快速阅读水平。
Skimming and scanning
Skimming and scanning are two fast reading skills to help to browse text and extract the key points. The skills require practice, but once you have got the hang of them you’ll find you can get through a substantial amount of reading in quite a short time. These reading methods make it easier for you to grasp large amounts of material, especially when you're previewing. They are also useful when you don't need to know every word.
通过略读把握文章大意 略读(skimming)只看文章标题、下标 题以及每个部分或者段落第一行，关注 文章中反复出现的关键词。 略读时，要用充足的时间读懂段落的 第一句和第二句，因为第一句往往是该 段的主题句(topic sentence)，而第二句 往往是对前句的延伸(extension)或进一 步的解释(explanation)。
通过扫读寻找特定信息或特定词组 运用扫读(scanning)迅速浏览从第三句开始 的后面部分,搜寻作者对开头两句的支持句 (supporting sentences),并同时注意文章中间 是否有转折词(transition),因为这些词常常 会把文章的思路逆转或加入其它重要的信息。 当读到段落的最后一句时,我们又要使用略 读,这时必须再次放慢速度(slow down your pace)直到完全消化作者对段落的小结 (conclusion),因为该小结有可能与主题句截 然相反或引导读者进入下一个段落。

1. What made Jane Goodall a great success?
There are two points that made her
success: one is her way to study chimps, and the other is her true love to the animals. The first one is facile (易做到的), because it is only a way. Everyone can do it. But for the second one,
it is more easily said than done. As a
woman, she gave up everything,
went to the forest to study the
chimps and devoted all her love to
these animals. It is really not easy.
What we cannot understand is that
how she has such great personality.
2. What should we learn from
wisdom and courage;
deeply love to the animals;
her consideration; her hard work …
3. What do you think is the best way to protect wildlife? We should call for all the citizens to love wildlife, protect their living conditions, forbid hunters to kill them freely, build more natural reserves for them and we shouldn’t disturb them. The national wildlife protection parks shouldn't be open to the tourists. Make people aware of the importance of wildlife protection.
