Hsu starts talking to Jerry at an auto shop
Hsu: You're getting some work done on your car, too?
Jerry: Yeah. Needs a new muffler and I'm getting the wheels rotated.
Hsu: How long have you had your car?
Jerry: I just bought it, actually. It was so cheap I had to wonder if it was stolen or something.
Hsu: Who knows? Maybe it was.
Jerry: Is car theft very common in Taiwan?
Hsu: Quite common, especially since Tropical Storm Mindulle.
Jerry: Why would storms make car theft more common?

(下期续)

小徐在汽车用品店跟杰瑞搭讪
小徐:你的车也需要修理吗?
杰瑞:是啊。需要一个新的消音器,还要把轮胎对调。
小徐:你的车买多久了?
杰瑞:其实才刚买。便宜到我都要怀疑是不是赃车之类的。
小徐:天知道?说不定是。
杰瑞:汽车窃盗在这里很普遍吗?
小徐:蛮普遍的,尤其是在敏督利台风之后。
杰瑞:风为何会使汽车窃盗更加普遍?


重点解说:

★ auto shop 汽车用品店
★ muffler (n.) 消音器
★ rotate (v.) 轮替。汽车的四个轮胎要不时相互更换,以免老是摩擦相同位置,以致缩短轮胎寿命
★ tropical (a.) 热带的,tropical storm是‘热带风暴’,在太平洋西岸称为‘台风’typhoon (n.)

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

I think even if you have the knowledge and the ability to communicate, you don't have the feeling for the language. And the feeling for the language is something that you'll get with immersion environment. So for young people, I hope everybody has the opportunity to travel overseas. I find there's another great benefit that you can understand your own country much better.

我想,即使你具有与人交流的知识和能力,你还是没有对那种语言的感觉。而这种感觉你可以从本土语言环境中得到。所以,对于年轻人来说,我希望他们都能有机会到海外看看。我发现这样还有一个极大的好处,就是你可以更好地了解你自己的国家。

 
 => 简明语法


关系副词引导的定语从句 (2)


  关系副词可代替的先行词是时间、地点或理由的名词,在从句中作状语。
2)that代替关系副词
  that可以用于表示时间、地点、方式、理由的名词后取代when, where, why和"介词+ which"引导的定语从句,在口语中that常被省略,例如:
  His father died the year (that / when / in which) he was born. 他父亲在他出生那年逝世了。
  He is unlikely to find the place (that / where / in which) he lived forty years ago. 他不大可能找到他四十年前居住过的地方。
