閱讀測驗是很多考生畏懼的英文題型之一,其實閱題測驗的的解題並不難,因為外國人寫文章都愛用破題法,只要看第一段即可知道文章大概在講什麼內容。例如在此篇文章的第一段中,有提到“foreign tourists” (外國遊客)、 “visit” (參觀)、“National Palace Museum”(國立故宮博物院),所以文章一定跟 “外國遊客參觀國立故宮博物院”有關。


 

In Taipei, the museum most foreign tourists visit is the National

 

Palace Museum (NPM). According to a respected English travel

 

guidebook introducing Taiwan, the NPM is one of the four top

 

museums in the world. Since the NPM has more than 200,000 works

5

of art, containing 5,000 years of Chinese culture and special

 

temporary exhibitions at all times, foreign visitors who are unfamiliar

 

with Chinese arts really need a guide to give an introduction on

 

Chinese history and the origin of each piece. So where are these

 

guides from and what are the requirements to become one? These

10

guides are members of the Foreign Volunteer Program. The

 

applicants must be enthusiastic about learning Chinese culture. The

 

program was founded in 1992 and its popularity is growing so rapidly

 

that application is getting increasingly competitive.

 

Before leading a tour in the museum, a guide needs to take more

15

than 30 classes where the guides-to-be must read museum-related

 

materials and join informal discussion groups about art and antiques.

 

Further on, they will be given tests about what they have learned and

 

on how to present their knowledge properly in front of a group of

 

tourists. After finishing the three-month training period, volunteers

20

must sign a one-year contract with the Museum. Their

 

responsibilities will include leading a weekly tour and attending

 

classes about new exhibitions. Such an intensive training prepares

 

volunteers to answer the visitors’ questions with confidence.
