Sam runs off to the monkey cage and meets a strange old man
Man: What are you doing here by yourself, young man?
Sam: I just wanted to come see the monkeys.
Man: And you drove to the zoo yourself, did ya? Where's your mommy and daddy?
Sam: Ummm, my mom and sister are going to meet me here later.
Man: You should be careful running around by yourself in these here zoos, my son.
Sam: I'm not afraid of nothing! Not even lions or tigers or bears!

山姆:我只是想来看猴子而已。
男人:你自己开车到动物园的,是吗?你的爸爸妈妈呢?
山姆:呃,妈妈和妹妹等会儿会在这跟我碰头。
男人:孩子,你自己在动物园这种地方跑来跑去要小心啊。
山姆:我什么都不怕!哪怕是狮子、老虎或是熊!


重点解说:

★ run off 逃出,在此指Sam不管别人自己跑掉

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

The English are remarkably well behaved on the roads. They use their horns sparingly and often give way to each other at crossroads. Punctilious in their observation of traffic signs, they will wait at traffic-light-controlled pedestrian crossings even if there are no pedestrians in sight. If there are any, they screech to a halt and wait patiently for them to cross the road. This comes as a surprise to foreigners who are used to crossing themselves on the pavement before running like rabbits across the highway.

英国人在路上表现得极有教养,很少按喇叭,在十字路口常常互相让路。他们严格遵守交通标志。在通过有红绿灯控制的人行横道时,即使没看见行人他们也会等。一旦有人他们会紧急刹车,然后耐心地等待别人过去。对那些习惯于先在人行道上在自己胸口上画十字然后像兔子一样跑着过马路的外国人来说,这可是一件令人吃惊的事。

 
 => 简明语法


带to 的情态动词 (2)

典型例题
 Tom ought not to ___ me your secret, but he meant no harm. 
 A.have told B.tell C.be telling D. having told
 答案A。由于后句为过去时,告诉秘密的动作又发生在其前因,此地应用过去完成时,但它在情态动词 ought to 后,所以用have。
