After their clothes are washed
Trev:You forgot to put 1fabric softener with the clothes in the drier.
Wei: This place is great. I want to come back again tomorrow.
Trev: Maybe that old guy can teach you to fold properly.
Wei: Quit acting so grumpy. This was fun. I didn't even crack my book.
Trev:Yeah. I had a lot of fun staring at the wall for two hours.
Wei:I have an idea. I should open up a laundry cafe in Taiwan.
Trev:Coffee and laundry. Hmm. I think you're onto something.
Wei:Just wait until I get home.

(续上期)

他们洗好衣服后
崔佛:你忘了把衣物柔软精跟衣服一起摆进烘衣机。
小薇:这地方太棒了。我明天还要再来。
崔佛:或许那老家伙可以教你怎样把衣服折好。
小薇:别耍脾气了。这很好玩。我甚至连书都没打开。
崔佛:是啊。我盯着墙壁两个小时也很有趣。
小薇:我有个主意。我应该开一家洗衣咖啡店。
崔佛:咖啡跟洗衣服。嗯。我想这有搞头喔。
小薇:只要等我回家就可以着手了。


重点解说:

★ fabric softener 衣物柔软精。fabric是‘纺织品’;softener是‘软化剂’
★ fold (v.) 折,折迭
★ crack (v.) 打开
★ be onto something 想到,发觉某事
★ grumpy (a.) 脾气不好的

  <播放语音>

The White House admitted that the president's assertion in his State of the Union Address that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Africa was based on unsubstantiated, and possibly false, information. Some former official commented, "I think they've made a terrible mistake, at least leaving the impression that if the boss wants the conclusion to be A, you're going to deliver intelligence in order for that conclusion to be A, because that's what he wants."

白宫承认总统做国情咨文时称伊拉克从非洲购买铀是建立在没确凿根据,甚至是有可能捏造的信息上的。有某个前政府官员评论说,“我想他们犯了一个严重的错误,至少让人认为如果老板想要一个为A的结论,那么你就要交上去能达成A结论的信息,因为那是老板要的”。

 
 => 简明语法


并列结构作主语时谓语用复数

  Reading and writing are very important.


 注意:当主语由and连结时,如果它表示一个单一的概念,即指同一人或同一物时,谓语动词用单数,and 此时连接的两个词前只有一个冠词。
 The iron and steel industry is very important to our life.

典型例题
 The League secretary and monitor ___ asked to make a speech at the meeting.
A. is  B. was  C. are  D. were
答案B. 注:先从时态上考虑。这是过去发生的事情应用过去时,先排除A.,C.。本题易误选D,因为The League secretary and monitor 好象是两个人,但仔细辨别, monitor 前没有the,在英语中,当一人兼数职时只在第一个职务前加定冠词。后面的职务用and 相连。这样本题主语为一个人,所以应选B。
