1333589686.jpg準備IELTS的朋友們都知道,收聽BBC新聞是練習聽力的好工具。 

  

 菁英桃園推薦大家利用每週專欄,由老師帶領您經由BBC六分鐘新聞,熟悉原汁原味英式腔調! 



歡迎加入BBC學英文Facebook粉絲團

I hate pink !!

I also hate Hello Kitty !!

但是其實大多數的女生是喜歡粉紅色的,甚至著迷到BBC要出一篇文章特別討論女孩兒們對粉紅物品的喜愛。

 

還有,不知粉絲們有沒有留意過,英語和美語除了腔調不同之外,還有著一個很大的差別.......

字的拼法

今天的新聞裡就有幾個很好的例子。

美式英文裡,顏色的拼法是 " color " ,但英式英文裡是 " colour "。

還有 favorite 及 favourite 的差別。

可別以為是打錯字喔~~~
