2009年12月英语六级考试完形填空的完形填空选自卫报的一篇文章,(http://www.guardian.co.uk/),近年来英语六级考试的阅读或者翻译等均有采自国外知名媒体的报道,大家平时复习的时候适当多多阅读这些大型媒体的文章或者事件报道。例如Economics, Times, New Yorkers etc.本次完型原文如下:

McDonald's, Greggs, KFC and Subway are today named as themost littered brands in Englandas Keep Britain Tidy called on fast-food companies to do more to tacklecustomers who drop their wrappers and drinks cartons in the streets.

Phil Barton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, launching its new Dirty Pig campaign, said it was thefirst time it had investigated which brands madeup "littered England"and the same names appeared again and again. "We condemnlitterers for dropping this fast food litter inthe first place but also believe the results have pertinent messages for thefast food industry. McDonald's, the local chip shop, Greggs, KFC and Subwayneed to do more to discourage littering by theircustomers.

He recognised efforts made by McDonald's, including logos on its packaging, litter bins andlitter patrols, but its litter remained "all too prevalent". All fastfood chains should reduce unnecessary packaging,he added. Companies could also reduce prices forthose who stayed to eat food on their premises, offer money-off vouchers orother incentives for those who returnedpackaging and put more bins at strategic pointsin local streets, not just outside their premises. A spokesmanfor McDonald's said: "We do our best. Obviously we ask all ourcustomers to dispose of litter responsibly." Trials of more extensive,all-day litter patrols were under way in Manchester and Birmingham.KFC said it took its responsibility on littermanagement "very seriously", and would introduce a programme toreduce packaging on many products. Subway saidthat it worked hard to minimise the impact oflitter on communities, but it was "still down to the individual customer to dispose of their litterresponsibly". Greggs said it recognised the "continuing challenge forus all", despite having already takenmeasures to help tackle the issue.

本次完型填空最难的地方就是72.strategicpoints,大家可以采用排除法,curious/mysterious/strange都有一个奇怪的意向在其中,和我们原文中"把垃圾桶设置在当地街区中的XX点"是不相吻合的;因此把strategic带入,作为公司处理垃圾问题的战略性方式就发现非常合适了。

其它的地方,大家注意平时词语搭配的积累,比如launch a campaign, in the firstplace, take responsibility, tackle the issue/deal with the issue/cope with theissue。一些词语的精确表达也需要留心,比如condemn, minimise,六级考试中不会出现超纲的词汇,所以大家在准备时把握好纲内词汇就能轻松过关了
