英銘老師: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“composer” (作曲家)、 “Anne LeBaron”,所以文章一定跟“Anne LeBaron這位作曲家”有關。

 

When most composers write music, it is for singers with lovely

 

voices. Not Anne LeBaron! Featured in LeBaron’s composition

 

“Concerto for Active Frogs” is a chorus of singers-wearing green

 

plastic trash bags—who croak along with a tape of real frogs!

5

LeBaron believes that frogs make beautiful music. While

 

studying at the University of Alabama, She began trying out frogs in

 

her compositions. She taped the voices of frogs and wrote music to

 

accompany the tape. Her work won her a Fulbright scholarship to

 

study music in Germany.

10

In performing the “Concerto for Active Frogs” the singers usually

 

sing on stage. Sometimes, however, LeBaron has the singers scatter

 

throughout the audience. The results can be surprising. At one

 

performance, a woman thought that the person in front of her was

 

mocking the music by croaking along, and she hit the unsuspecting

15
