今天又來到考生比較不喜歡的閱讀測驗囉，其實閱讀測驗的的解題並不難，因為外國人寫文章都愛用破題法，只要看第一段即可知道文章大概在講什麼內容。此篇文章的第一句話“One of the most popular fields of study for college students these days is leisure studies.”，就是主題句，所以文章一定跟“在大學生中最熱門的就是休閒相關的學科”有關。
One of the most popular fields of study for college students
these days is leisure studies. The names of the courses,
“Introduction to Sport” or “The Philosophy of Sport,” call forth scenes
of college students idly talking of Frisbees and sleeping on the grass.
But leisure studies is a deadly serious field: students learn how to run
the sports programs of big city park departments, how to manage a
ski resort or a vacation hotel. The students learn how to organize a
teenage soccer league where little or no interest exists in the sport,
how to teach and keep beginners interested, and how to keep track
of admissions money. To do all these things, they must take courses
in psychology and business management along with those in leisure.
As people grow more involved in sports activities, in vacations, and in
trips, the job outlook for leisure majors is quite good; but can you
imagine trying to explain to your parents that you’re spending their
money studying leisure?
