Rob starts talking with Tom
Rob: Do you study Chinese history?
Tom: Yep. There aren't many of us left who are still interested in it.
Rob: Well, maybe you can tell me about Teachers' Day. Isn't that today?
Tom: Well, yes, but today is also the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Rob: Is that more important? Shouldn't we be celebrating Confucius?
Tom: Everyone's forgot about him since his birthday's no longer a holiday.
Rob: But isn't tradition still important?
Tom: You sound like my father. This sausage is delicious. Too bad you won't eat it.

(续上期)

罗伯开始跟汤姆聊
罗伯:你念中国历史吗?
汤姆:没错。像我们这样对中国史有兴趣的人不多了。
罗伯:那么,也许你可以跟我说说教师节。不就是今天吗?
汤姆:嗯,是的。但今天也是中秋节。
罗伯:教师节不是更重要吗?我们不是应该要赞扬孔子才对?
汤姆:自从孔子诞辰不再是假日,大家都忘了他。
罗伯:但传统不是仍然很重要吗?
汤姆:你听起来就像我爸。这个香肠真好吃。你不吃真可惜。


重点解说:

★ Teachers' Day (n.) 教师节,Mid-Autumn Festival (n.) 中秋
★ celebrate (v.) 赞扬
★ tradition (n.) 传统

The first Valentine card grew out of this practice. The first true Valentine card was sent in 1415 by Charles, duke of Orleans, to his wife. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London at the time. The reason why Cupid became associated with the holiday is because he was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love and beauty. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards.

第一张情人节卡就是这样来的。第一张真正的情人节卡是在1415年由奥尔良公爵查尔斯送给他的妻子的。当时他被囚禁在伦敦塔中。丘比特之所以与这个节日相关,是因为他是罗马爱情与美丽女神维纳斯的儿子。丘比特常常在情人节卡上出现。

 
 => 简明语法


as, which 非限定性定语从句


  由as, which 引导的非限定性定语从句,as和which可代整个主句,相当于and this或and that。As一般放在句首,which在句中。
  As we know, smoking is harmful to one's health.
  The sun heats the earth, which is very important to us.  

典型例题 
1)Alice received an invitation from her boss, ___came as a surprise.
A. it  B. that  C. which  D. he
  答案C. 此为非限定性从句,不能用 that修饰,而用which.,it 和he 都使后句成为句子,两个独立的句子不能单以逗号连接。况且选he句意不通。

2)The weather turned out to be very good, ___ was more than we could expect.
A. what B. which C. that D. it
  答案B。which可代替句子,用于非限定性定语从句,而what不可。That 不能用于非限定性定语从句,it不为连词,使由逗号连接的两个句子并在一起在英语语法上行不通。

3)It rained hard yesterday, ____ prevented me from going to the park..
A. that B. which  C. as  D. it
 答案B.
