初中英语阅读怎么破?英语小白怎么办?别急别急哦,学长来给你支支招。下面这篇文章是2018年杭州中考英语真题的其中一篇,我们以这篇文章为例,来分析下初中英语的阅读方法。请看原文:

When Canadian teenager Ryan was six years old, his teacher told him that many parts of Africa, there was no clean water. She said that people often made themselves ill, and even died, just from drinking or bathing in dirty water.

What she said made Ryan upset. He decided to raise money for a well(井) so that people in Africa could have clean water. He did extra chores for his parents and raised $70 all by himself. Then he found out that it actually cost $2,000 to dig a well.

Most people would have given up at this point, but not Ryan. He was disappointed, but determined to rise more money. Finally he collected over $2,000. That money was used to dig the first of "Ryan’s wells".

Since then, Ryan has continued to raise money for more wells. In fact, Ryan has raised over $1,500,000!

Ryan calls himself “a normal boy" and likes to play ice hockey when he's not in school or travelling around the world talking to other students about himself and his work. As for the future, he has said that he isn't exactly sure what he will choose to do. "Something along the lines of a lawyer or a teacher. Maybe a leader!"

是不是很扎心~别急嘛,这不,喏,有翻译啊。

当加拿大少年瑞恩六岁时,他的老师告诉他,非洲有许多地方没有干净的水。老师告诉他说,那里的人们经常生病,甚至死亡,源于饮用脏水或在脏水中洗澡。

老师说的话让瑞恩沮丧。他决定为一口井筹集资金,这样非洲人就可以喝上干净的水了。他为父母做额外的家务,独自筹集了70美元。然后他发现挖一口井实际上要花2000美元。

大多数人此时会放弃,但瑞恩不会。他很失望,但决心增加更多的钱。最后他筹集了2000多美元。这笔钱被用来挖“瑞恩的第一口井”。

从那以后,为了挖更多的井,瑞恩继续筹集资金。事实上,瑞恩已经筹集了超过150万美元!

瑞恩称自己为“普通男孩”,当他不在学校或在世界各地旅行时与其他学生谈论自己和他的工作时,他喜欢打冰球。至于未来,他说他不确定自己会选择做什么。“或许会成为律师,也或许会成为老师。也可能当个领导者!"

但考试时是不会有中文译文的,这咋办?分3步解决。还是以这篇选文为例:
