Jim is driving with Tom, an American businessman, to a meeting
Jim: I'm sorry, sir. We need to stop for a minute to fill up the gas tank.
Tom: That's OK. Have gas prices here been crazy, too?
Jim: Yes, they have. Is gas cheaper in the States? [they stop at a gas station]
Tom: Yes, but not by very much any more.
Jim: I thought everything was more expensive in the States.
Tom: Lots of things are, but our gas is the cheapest in the world.
Jim: Why is that?
Tom: Americans are really dependent on cars, and raising gas taxes would be political suicide.

(下期续)

吉姆正开车载着美国商人汤姆去开会
吉姆:先生,对不起。我们得停一下车加油。
汤姆:没关系。这里的油价也很疯狂吗?
吉姆:对,没错。汽油在美国比较便宜吧?(他们在加油站停下来)
汤姆:是的,但再也不会便宜到哪去了。
吉姆:我以为在美国每样东西都比较贵。
汤姆:很多东西都贵,但是我们汽油是世界上最便宜的。
吉姆:怎么会这样?
汤姆:美国人很依赖汽车,涨油价就等于政治自杀。


重点解说:

★ fill up加满
★ gas tank (n.) 汽油缸
★ raise (v.) 抬高(价格等)
★ suicide (n.) 自杀

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Later on, remember, culture shock takes a while to get used to, so give yourself time. Even the most simple things aren't always the same in another country. Buses are different, so get maps and timetables. Road rules are different, so use extra care. The currency is different, so familiarize yourself with the money. Habits are hard to break. To get the most out of your study abroad experience, find a happy medium between home and your new environment.

过后,要记住,文化冲突需经过一段时间才能适应,因而要给自己一些时间。即使最简单的事情在另一国家也会不一样。公共汽车是不同的,所以要带上地图和时间表。交通规则是不同的,因而要格外小心。货币是不同的,所以要熟悉当地货币。原有的习惯是很难改变的。充分利用你在国外读书的经历,在家乡和新的环境之间找到一个愉快的结合点。

 
 => 简明语法


need/want/require/worth

  注意:当 need, want, require, worth(形容词)后面接doing也可以表示被动。
   Your hair wants cutting. 你的头发该理了。
   The floor requires washing. 地板需要冲洗。
   The book is worth reading. 这本书值得一读。

典型例题
  The library needs___, but it'll have to wait until Sunday. 
A. cleaning  B. be cleaned  C. clean  D. being cleaned
  答案A. need (实意) +n /to do,need (情态)+ do,当为被动语态时,还可need + doing. 本题考最后一种用法,选A。如有to be clean 则也为正确答案。
典:done,"不可能已经"。must not do 不可以(用于一般现在时)。
