 <播放语音>

Jun: OK. Joseph Smith was in New York. But we're in Utah! What happened?
Bob: Joseph Smith founded the church there. But there were some problems, and the Church kept moving west. After Joseph Smith died, the early pioneers wandered through the desert until they found the great salt lake. Sounds just like stories in the Bible, don't you think, Jun?
Jun: I wouldn't know, but it sounds like quite an adventure.
Bob: Sure was. Filled with miracles! Like the miracle that brought you here! Praise to God! Let's get ready for Temple Square...

(待续)

小君:好吧。约瑟夫史密斯原本在纽约。但我们现在是在犹他州耶!怎么一回事呢?
鲍伯:约瑟夫史密斯在那里创了教会。但是发生了一些问题,教会不断往西部迁徙。约瑟夫史密斯死了之后,早期的草创者流浪穿越了这片沙漠,直到他们找到这座大盐湖为止。听来就像是圣经里的故事,小君你认为呢?
小君:我之前都不知道,但听来好像一场冒险。
鲍伯:的确是。充满了奇迹!就跟带你来这里的奇迹一样!赞美主!我们准备动身去圣殿广场吧……


重点解说:

★ found (v.) 创立,建造
★ wander (v.) 流浪
★ the great salt lake 大盐湖。‘盐湖城’Salt Lake City即以此为名。Temple Square 圣殿广场
★ miracle (n.) 奇迹
★ praise (v.) 赞美

A game of soccer is split into two halves of 45 minutes each, with a 15-minute break at halftime. A referee and two assistants make sure that nobody cheats or breaks the rules. Each soccer team has eleven players and three substitute, or reserve players. The team consists of a goalkeeper, defenders, midfield players, and forwards (or strikers). The object of the game is to get the ball into your opponent's goal.

足球比赛分为两个半场,每半场各45分钟,上下半场中间有15分钟的休息时间。比赛有一位主裁判和两名助理裁判,他们的职责是监督是否有球员作弊或者是犯规。每支球队有11名场上队员和3名替补队员。球队包括守门员、防守队员、中场队员和前锋。比赛的目的就是要将足球踢入对方的球门。

You have such good taste.

对话
Tracy: So this is your new apartment.
Charlene: Yes, I moved in a month ago.
Tracy: Well I have to say it looks fantastic. Did you decorate and furnish it yourself?
Charlene: Yes I did. It took me quite a lot of time.
Tracy: Well I must say you have such good taste in interior decor. It could have been done by a professional designer.
Charlene: Oh I don't think so, but I'm glad you think it's nice.

特蕾西:这就是你的新公寓套房。
查伦:没错,我上个月才搬进来。
特蕾西:嗯,很漂亮啊。你是自己装修、布置的吗?
查伦:没错,这花了我不少时间。
特蕾西:你在室内装饰方面实在很有品味。专业设计师也不过如此。
查伦:啊,不敢当,但谢谢你欣赏。

特蕾西称赞查伦说:You have such good taste in interior decor。Decor本是法文,指房间等的装饰,后来被英文借用,例如:We had an interior designer design the decor of the new office(我们聘请了室内设计师,设计新办公室的布置)。留意such good taste这说法。Such是‘如此’,有强调作用,其后须接名词。例如:(1) There was such a (large) crowd of people that there was not enough food(人数众多,但食物不足)。(2) Did you expect such (good) weather?(你有没有预料到这样(好)的天气?)So和such一样,也是‘如此’的意思,也有强调作用。但so之后不必接名词,可径用一个形容词(adjective)或副词(adverb),例如:(1) She is so beautiful!(她很美丽!)(2) He dances so gracefully!(他跳舞非常优雅!)So之后假如接名词,则这名词必须用a、an、much、many、few、little等字带出,a、an之前更必须有形容词,例如:(1) There was so large a crowd of people that there was not enough food。(2) There were so many people that there was not enough food。第一句so large a crowd等于such a large crowd,两个说法的形容词位置不同,切勿混淆。假如名词不是用a、an、much、many、few、little等字带出,则不可用so加强语气。例如你可以说He is so good a man(他这个人很好),却不可说They are so good men。
