They are at the ticket window
Mom: How much for the three of us? My children are both under twelve.
Girl: It will be twenty-four dollars altogether. Did you want tickets for the petting zoo as well?
Mom: Yes, my daughter really wants to go there.
Girl: That's an additional eight-dollar fee. Take these maps and you should be on your way.
Mom: Thanks. By the way, are there any special events scheduled for today?
Girl: Yes. There's a monkey feeding scheduled for three p.m.

女孩:那还要多付八元。拿着这些地图,你们就可以自己游览了。
妈妈:谢谢。对了,今天有安排特别的活动吗?
女孩:有。下午三点有喂猴子秀。

★ schedule (v.) 预定计划,安排时间(做某事)

 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Everything had gone according to plan, but Shah Jehan's luck was about to change... In 1658, just four years after the completion of the Taj Mahal, he was thrown out of power. Unfortunately, his son, Aran Azibe imprisoned him, his own father. And the last seven years of his life he spent in prison. And he was allowed to look at Taj Mahal through a window. His life was in ruins, but when he died his ultimate wish was granted. He was buried beside his beloved wife in the Taj Mahal.

事事都按计划进行,但沙·贾汗的命运即将改变……1658年,泰姬·玛哈尔陵完工4年后,他的王位被推翻了。不幸的是,他的儿子阿兰·阿齐贝囚禁了他,囚禁了他的亲生父亲。他生命中的最后7年是在监狱中度过的,但他被允许透过一个窗户遥望泰姬陵。他的生活被彻底摧毁,但他去世时,他最后的心愿得以实现:他被葬在泰姬陵中,葬在他的爱妻身旁。

 
 => 简明语法


would rather表示"宁愿"

典型例题
----Shall we go skating or stay at home?
----Which ___ do?     
A. do you rather  B. would you rather  C. will you rather  D. should you rather
答案B。本题考查情态动词rather的用法,would rather +do sth 意为"宁愿",本题为疑问句,would 提前,所以选B。
