对于英语写作来说，最有效的提高方法莫过于是多阅读。在阅读过程中，读者可以学会分析语句结构、多样性表达、好的词汇句型。今天Lois就从<National Geography>的一篇专栏文章<Leading the Way: Meet the Next Generation of Explorers> 摘选了一段话供大家学习。
Arthur Huang’s dreams are made of garbage. His latest? “A piece of trash that’s going too fly,” he says.
Huang’s dream tend to become reality. This one is parked in his company in Taiwan, and it’s called the EcoFighter-a two-seated aircraft with wings made of the material from recycled plastic bottles.
As a young architecture student, Huang grew disillusioned that despite all the talk of “going green,” it seemed no one was producing 100 percent sustainable materials. He decided to invent them himself. It wasn’t easy, He had to build his own manufacturing machinery, because the recycled materials broke existing equipment. But now his firm, Miniwiz, which he founded in 2005, transforms discarded plastic, clothing, and rice fiber into useful and beautiful things. Huang
has opened “trash concept ‘stores for Nike, built a nine-story pavilion in Taipei, and collaborated with Italian furniture designers to re-create their classic pieces using boards made from cigarette butts. “We’re trying to sell the trash back to people who produce it” he explains.
