Sam:
What do you think of the Olympics?
Ann: My favorite event is definitely the rhythmic gymnastics.
Sam: Me too. I can't believe the way those girls’ bodies look.
Ann: Yeah. They're so skinny. And some of them look like children.
Sam: There are some children. I saw one gymnast that was in the nine to eleven age bracket.
Ann: I guess the lighter they are, the easier it is to jump around on the floor.
Sam: There are also some older gymnasts who are extremely graceful.
Ann: Yesterday, I watched a floor routine where the gymnast used a ball.
Sam: You're talking about the contact ball, where she rolls it all around her body.
Ann: That and she throws it nearly five meters in the air.
Sam: Wow. Those girls have such coordination.

山姆:你觉得奥运如何?
安:我最喜欢的项目绝对是艺术体操。
山姆:我也是。真不敢相信那些女孩子的身材能那个样子。
安:是啊。她们好瘦。有些看起来像小孩子。
山姆:里面是有些小孩子。我有看到一位体操选手的年龄大概才九到十一岁。
安:我猜她们越轻越容易在地板上跳来跳去吧。
山姆:也有些比较年长的体操选手非常优雅。
安:昨天,我看了一场地板动作,那位体操选手耍一颗球。
山姆:你是指抗力球,在她身上到处滚来滚去。
安:此外她还把球抛到将近五公尺的空中。
山姆:哇。那些女孩子的协调感真是了得。

名词性that-从句 (1)


1)由从属连词that引导的从句叫做名词性that-从句。 That只起连接主句和从句的作用,在从句中不担任任何成分,本身也没有词义。名词性that-从句在句中能充当主 语、宾语、表语、同位语和形容词宾语,例如:
  主语:That he is still alive is sheer luck.  他还活着全靠运气。
  宾语:John said that he was leaving for London on Wednesday. 约翰说他星期三要到伦敦去。
  表语:The fact is that he has not been seen recently.   事实是近来谁也没有见过他。
  同位语:The fact that he has not been seen recently disturbs everyone in his office.
       近来谁也没有见过他,这一事实令办公室所有的人不安。
  形容词宾语:I am glad that you are satisfied with your job.
       你对工作满意我感到很高兴。
