I adjusted my methods. Selected easier material. Then little by little tackled more difficult stuff.

Even practicing english comprehension and learning accurate meaning of unknown words helps comprehend accurately.

 

Coming to Chinese Comprehension, I am doing comprehensions at this difficulty level or higher, that is my goal.

 

父亲在房前种了一棵枣树,又在屋后栽了另一棵枣树。两棵枣树同一 年开花结果,秋天到了,树上挂满红色的枣子。屋后的那棵枣树,因有了 围墙的保护,没有受到村里小孩的骚扰;房子前面的那棵枣树,却逃不过 悲惨的命运。

村里那些贪吃的小孩因为禁不住红枣的诱惑,又畏惧枣树上的尖刺, 使用竹竿猛力抽打枣树的枝条,打得枣子掉落满地。孩子们捡了枣子后, 留下遍地的枣叶, 情景甚是凄凉。过了不久,房前枣树上的枣子所剩无 几,整棵树奄奄一息,而后院的那棵枣树却结满了红枣。

第二年春天,房前那棵枣树竟然又长出了新芽!两棵枣树都开了花, 然后结了果。不但如此,房前那棵遭抽打的枣树,结的枣子比屋后未被抽 打的枣树多一倍。

我好奇地问父亲怎么会这样。“枣树就是有这种怪脾气。”父亲感慨 地说,“这就好像一个优秀的人,常常会招来忌妒,甚至遭受打击和压 制, 就像枣树遭受抽打一样。枣树被抽打之后,反而会结出更多又红又甜 的果子;优秀的人遭受打压之后,也会取得更大的成就。

其实,我们在人生道路上所遇到的各种困境,都是用来磨练自己的。只要我们像枣树一样,坦然而心甘情愿地接受每次的磨练,就可以让自己 变得越来越强大。

I am repeating the above comprehension again and again until I am perfect. I will practice 5 Comprehensions like this until get command on them, then i might be able to start guessing the sentence meaning without knowing some words. But now understand each word 100%.

This is my Second Composition I learnt this year. It gave me around 170 plus new words (including sub components). Please go through and let me know, whether you can guess the meaning with context or you need to use Dictionary for some words?

 

他是一个顽劣的孩子,曾经用文具盒夹住前排女生的头发,把同学的课本藏起来。有一次,他甚至将一只死老鼠放在老师的桌子上。父亲知道了,每次都会用藤条抽打他。重重的体罚,反而让他变得更加叛逆。这一次,他打碎了教室所有的玻璃窗。

于是,他被叫去校长办公室。他想:“校长这次一定不会轻易饶我的。管他呢,不管他骂什么,我都要顶回他。”没想到,校长却和颜悦色地叫他坐下。他顿时不知所措,心中疑惑不解。校长指着桌上的一个杯子,说:“这杯子里的水,形状像什么?”他感到意外,想了想,说:“像杯子。”校长点点头,问:“你再看看,面盆里的水,形状像什么?”他说:“像面盆。”校长再让他看看塑料桶里的水。他迷茫了,但乖乖地回答:“像塑料桶嘛。校长要他跟着走出办公室。两人走到校园外一个满是烂泥的池塘边。池塘水面上漂浮着各种垃圾,散发出恶臭。校长指着池塘里的水说:“这里也是水。你愿意做这里的水,还是杯子里干净的水?”此刻,孩子的眼神里第一次流露出自责。校长亲切地抚摸摸着他的头,指着远方说:“你很聪明,我希望你将來能成为流进大海的水。那你的人生就像大海,有大海般的丰富和博大。几十年过去了,他每次想起校长的话, 都会提醒自己:如果人生像水一样注定要流进一个容器,那就流进杯子,流进面盆,流进塑料桶。即使没有入海的寬阔和深沉,即使平庸,但至少活得简单,干净,透明。不管怎样,要流入烂泥塘。

 

1. 从哪里可以看出文中的孩子生性顽劣?

2. 孩子见到校长后,为什么心中感到困惑?

3. 从教育孩子的方式上可以看出校长有什么优点?试加以说明。

4. 校长对孩子的教导是否有效?为什么?

5. 你要成为“流进杯子里的水”,还是要成为“流进大海的水? 试加以说明

Whatever you learnt we will forget , if we does not use or revise them at specific intervals. 

 

Last year had gone through 3 lessons with every meaning from those lessons. but could not remember them now. I am revising them now.

 

1.Systematic Revision is important 

2. Grouping of the words, which are confusing to you

I can confirm this works because this is exactly the method I've been using to expand my English vocabulary. It requires a bit of self-discipline, though. 

 

By the way, I am going to prepare my own topic-based word lists using Excel. Most topic-based vocabulary books don't suit me well because they contain too many basic and intermediate words. I also find it particularly useful to group synonyms and words that can be easily confused with one another.

yes. Grouping the confused words is very useful technique. While reading you lookup the dictionary and feel you learnt it, but similar word comes you confuse it again.So in Anki I will write confused words and use front-to-back and back-to-front review, both. For e.g: , 刻, 孩 these have different meanings and combinations in chinese is another hurdle
