センター単語は基本的なものと言われますが、高校3年生でセンターを受験して、知らない単語がひとつもないという生徒はどれほどいるでしょうか?

僕の未熟な学生時代を思い出すと、知らない単語がポロポロあって、結果点数もポロポロ落とすんですよね・・・

単語の意味を想像しながら読むのは大切ですが、一文の中にいくつも知らない単語があっては想像も何もあったものではありません。

 

この記事は1995年のセンター追試験の第6問(最後の長文読解)の単語をまとめました。

ある程度、勉強している高校生ができなかった単語を選んだものです。

単語は英語の基本です。ですが、単語帳で1800とか2000を丸暗記しても、実際には使えません。丸暗記ではすぐに忘れてしまいますし、単語の色々な意味の中から、文脈に沿った意味・訳をひっぱってこれないんですよね。なので、単語帳の勉強と、長文の勉強は必ず平行して行ってください。

[本文]

Tom Jackson was my school friend, and he and his sister Jenny lived in a tall, old, broken-down house which their parents had bought for practically nothing because it was said to be haunted by a ghost. Rumour had it that a woman had hanged herself by her own hair from the ceiling of the attic room above Tom’s bedroom, and that she kept revisiting the scene of the tragedy.

Tom said he had heard strange noise overhead while he’d been in his bedroom making a model aeroplane. Jenny said it was nonsense and he’d been watching too many Late Night Horror Shows on TV, but it gave us an idea for tricking George, a friend of ours. We would invite him to the Jacksons’ one afternoon, get him up to the attic and haunt him there.

We were to tell him we would have tea in the attic, away from the grown-ups, and I was to take him there while the others pretended to be fetching the food from the kitchen. In fact, Tom would go to the cellar where the main switches were, and, at the right moment, would throw the attic into darkness.

Jenny would be hiding in the attic, and when the lights went out she would creep onto a chest of drawers. She would shine an electric torch with green and red filters onto her face, which would thus appear to be floating horribly in midair. What’s more, Jenny had long  hair just like the woman in the story. We worked out how long it would take for George and me to reach the attic and sit down with George facing the chest of drawers. After another half-minute, I would make some excuse and go out of the room where I could hold the door shut in case George tried to flee from the terror. We rehearsed our parts carefully.

Eventually the time came for the haunting. “I’ll go and see about some tea,” said Jenny and went off, apparently towards the kitchen, where Mrs Jackson was making sandwiches and baking cakes. A couple of minutes later, as arranged, Tom suggested that we all go upstairs for our private picnic, and I led George along while Tom slipped off “to help in the kitchen”.

The plan worked perfectly. George and I climbed to the attic and settled down in the appointed positions. Then I wandered out of the room “to see where everyone was”. Just as I closed the door behind me, Tom threw the switch and everything went black. The event was alarming, but I hung onto the door handle and tried to hear what was happening throught the keyhole. There was a creak, which suggested that George had jumped to his feet, but he didn’t seem to be moving about, or responding to Jenny, who, by now, must have been starting her torch trick.

Then suddenly and quite unexpectedly there came screams and shrieks and sobbing from inside. I pushed open the door to find out what was going on. At the same instant, the lights came on again and I saw poor George flat on his back on the floor. His face was pale and he was trembling and kept mumbling, “The face…the face…”

“Don’t be stupid, George,” I said, “it’s only Jenny.” As I looked round for Jenny, there was a great noise on the stairs and Mrs Jackson burst in and shouted angrily, “What’s going on here? We nearly spilt boiling water over ourselves.” And there behind her, white-faced and stunned, straight from the kitchen - where she had been told to stay and help make the tea - was Jenny!
