They walk into a store in town
Dan: These umbrellas are nice. Really delicate.
Boss: You like? I make them myself.
Dan: How do you make these?
Boss: Mostly with paper and bamboo.
Dan: Doesn't the paper get wet and soggy in the rain?
Boss: I dip the paper in a type of oil that makes it waterproof.
Dan: I'd like to give some away as presents. How much are they?
Boss: Since they're handmade, and they take about a day each to make, I'll sell them to you for 1,000 NT each.

(续上期)

他们走进市区一家店里
阿丹:这些雨伞好漂亮。真精致。
老板:喜欢吗?我自己做的。
阿丹:你是怎么做的?
老板:大部分都是用纸跟竹子。
阿丹:纸碰到下雨不是会湿透吗?
老板:我把纸浸过一种油就可以防水。
阿丹:我想要买一些当礼物送人。多少钱?
老板:因为它们是手工做的,而且一天只能做一把,我就卖你一把一千新台币吧。


重点解说:

★ delicate (a.) 精致的,精巧的

 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Q: Is it true that you should feed a cold and starve a fever?
A: Not really. I don't think either starving or feeding would make a difference to a cold or fever. As long as there's no vomiting or diarrhea, there's no reason to restrict diet. More critical is to drink plenty of liquids during either illness. Fluids help maintain appropriate blood pressure and, in the case of fever, replenish the water lost through sweating and breathing as you dissipate body heat.

问:感冒多吃、发烧少吃这种说法对吗?
答:不是这样。我不认为感冒或者发烧可以通过饥饿或者饱餐得到改善。只要不呕吐或者腹泻,没有理由限制饮食。更重要的一点是,无论是感冒还是发烧都要大量饮水。水能保持适当的血压,并能补充发烧散热时从汗腺和呼吸中失去的水分。

 
 => 简明语法


表示转折或对比


 1) but表示转折,while表示对比。
   Some people love cats, while others hate them.

典型例题 
--- Would you like to come to dinner tonight?  
--- I'd like to, ___ I'm too busy.
 A. and  B. so  C. as  D. but  
 答案D。but与前面形成转折,符合语意。而表并列的and, 结果的so,原因的as都不符合句意。


 2) not…but… 意思为"不是……而是……"
   not 和but 后面的用词要遵循一致原则。
   They were not the bones of an animal, but (the bones) of a human being.
