如何挑選適合你的程度的英文原文書


挑選適合的英文閱讀書籍其實不容易,有時常常挑到太難的書。例如哈利波特,本來以為是童書,結果近十年前買下來,看了幾頁就擺在書櫃上長灰塵。直到這幾年,單字量成長足夠了,才有辦法閱讀。


首先,如果你的程度還不夠高,大可以挑選改編過的版本,例如鼎鼎有名的企鵝書籍(Penguin Books),他們出版了一系列改編的英文小說,從古典的孤雛淚到電影小說,而且還用單字量分級,夠貼心吧?總共分成:

Level 1: Beginner 300 Words
Level 2: Elementary 600 Words
Level 3: Pre-Intermediate  1200 Words
Level 4:  Intermediate 1700 Words
Level 5:  Upper-Intermediate 2300 Words
Level 6:  Advanced 3000 Words

▲企鵝書籍的特徵就是這個企鵝標誌,以及橙黃色的書皮。VIA

如果你的程度稍微高了一點,或許可以試試史丁(R. L. Stine)的Goosebumps兒童恐怖小說,我不知道中文翻譯成什麼,應該是雞皮疙瘩吧。事實上原文是鵝皮疙瘩。Goosebumps是一系列的兒童恐怖小說,用字簡單,故事也很簡單,大致上來說也算有趣。

這系列真的很多,應該不只上面這些。 VIA



最後我極力推薦的好選擇是紐伯瑞兒童文學獎(Newbery Medal)的作品。每年美國兒童圖書館服務協會(Association for Library Service to Children)都會選出幾本好作品,書商當然也很樂意這麼做,還可以在書的封面加上文學獎的獎牌標誌,來增加銷售量。底下是從1922年至今的得獎作品清單,資料來源自維基百科

我最近又重讀了這本書一次,主題是跨種族之戀,同時帶一點奇幻,真是感人的作品。 VIA

希望上述訊息對於想要增進英文閱讀能力的人有幫助。我以為英文閱讀能力的練習,其實需要有些傻勁的。還記得小時候,沒什麼其他娛樂,閒暇時就是去書店看免費的書,不然就是待在家裡,一遍又一遍地翻著破爛不堪的漢聲小小百科跟小百科,無聊時甚至連辭海都看。既然中文閱讀能力是這樣練習的,想必英文閱讀也是如此。

***
2015/08/02補充:
另外我想推薦SCHOLASTIC的網站,這個網站可以告訴你每本書所需要的字彙程度,讓你可以參考,決定是否要購買與花時間閱讀。


點進去網址後,你會看到上面的畫面。在上面的搜尋欄位輸入你要搜尋的書名。


我搜尋了Harry Potter,Grade Level Equivalent為5.9。這個數字對你可能沒什麼意義。沒關係,我們接著搜尋另一本書。


我搜尋的是The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,它的程度是8.3。就我個人的閱讀體驗來說,這本書的確比Harry Potter要來得難一些。我目前的程度大概是在能讀懂Harry Potter的程度。

所以讀者可以試試看將自己已經讀完的原文書,丟到這裡查,以那本書為基準點,去看看其他書的程度。有些程度過高的,其實就可以先不用考慮購買了。
