Sam: I'm not a kid. I'm a big boy! Let's go see the monkeys already!
Mom: It's only one o'clock. And, before we go anywhere, we need to decide a place to meet if we get separated.
Sam: How about at the monkey cages?
Mom: No. Let's say we'll meet at the food stands over there. [points] Remember, OK?
Sam: While we're here, let's go get some food to feed the monkeys!

Although the cross has come to be a symbol of Christianity, it was venerated both as a religious and lucky sign for centuries before the Christian era. It has been found in parts of the world where the message of Christianity never reached. The Aztecs in pre Columbian Mexico regarded it as a symbol of the rain god, the most important in their pantheon.

尽管十字形已成为基督教的象征,但早在基督纪元前几世纪中,十字形已被当作宗教和幸运标志而受到尊崇。在世界上基督教义未曾到达的地方都发现过十字形。早在哥伦布发现美洲大陆之前就生活在墨西哥的阿兹特克人,就把十字形看作是雨神的象征,雨神是他们信奉的众神中最重要的神。

 
 => 简明语法


will和would


 注意:
 1)would like; Would like to do = want to 想要,为固定搭配。
   Would you like to go with me?
 2)Will you…? Would you like…? 表示肯定含义的请求劝说时,疑问句中一般用some, 而不是any。
   Would you like some cake?
 3)否定结构中用will,一般不用would, won't you是一种委婉语气。
   Won't you sit down?
