Ernie
: Here's the lunchroom. I hope you like old fogy food. They have to make it soft since most of us have dentures.
Wei: Sure. Anything you eat is fine with me.
Ernie: [Points] Be careful of old Earl there. He can't see, so he might bump into you.
Wei: I'll watch out for him.
Ernie: That there's Betty and Terry. They got married at the young age of 72.
Wei: Wow. It's so rare for people that old to get married. I mean, uh?

(续上期)

尔尼:餐厅到了。希望你们会喜欢老头子吃的菜。他们得把菜煮得很烂,因为我们大部都戴假牙。
小薇:没问题。你吃什么我就吃什么。
尔尼:(指着)小心那里的厄尔。他看不见,所以他也许会撞到你。
小薇:我会注意他的。
尔尼:那是贝蒂跟泰瑞。他们在七十二岁还年轻时结婚。
小薇:哇。这么老的人结婚还真少见。我是说……嗯?


重点解说:

★ fogy (n.) 古板的人
★ denture (n.) 假牙
★ bump into 撞上

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

The rapidity of change follows the impetuous pace of man rather than the deliberate pace of nature. Radiation is now the unnatural creation of man's tampering with the atom. The chemicals are the synthetic creations of man's inventive mind, having no counterparts in nature.

环境改变的速度不再顺从大自然从容不迫的节奏,而是顺从人类急切匆匆的步伐。辐射是当今人类通过支配原子而得到的一种非自然的创造物。化学制品则是人类有发明创造力的头脑创造出来的合成物,在自然界本无相应的东西。

 
 => 简明语法


比较until和till (2)

1)Until可用于句首,而till通常不用于句首。
  Until you told me, I had heard nothing of what happened.
  直到你告诉我以前,出了什么事我一点也不知道。 
2)Until when 疑问句中,until要放在句首。
  ---Until when are you staying? 你呆到什么时候?
  --- Until next Monday. 呆到下周一。 

注意:否定句可用另外两种句式表示。
(1)Not until …在句首,主句用倒装。
  Not until the early years of the 19th century did man know what heat is.
  直到19 世纪初,人类才知道热能是什么。
  Not until I began to work did I realize how much time I had wasted.
  直到我开始工作,我才认识到了我已蹉跎了几多岁月。
(2) It is not until… that…
