: Cheers boys, er, and girl, that is. [takes a shot]
Wei: No worries. [chokes a little] This stuff is strong.
Jeth: I'll give you guys a bottle to take with you. So where you headed after this?
Wei:Oh! I forgot! We were lost. We just wanted to ask you for directions.
Jeth: Hmm. How's about we go off to my house, have some dinner with the wife and kids, then take a gander at a map of these here parts?
Wei: I'm so glad we ran into you!

杰斯:男孩子们,干杯,呃,还有女孩。(喝了一杯)
小薇:别介意。(有点呛到)这玩意真烈。
杰斯:我给你们一瓶带回去。那你们之后要往哪去?

 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

What does it mean to relax? Despite hearing this term thousands of times during the course of our lives, very few people have deeply considered what it's really about.

放松是什么意思?尽管一生中我们会成千上万次地听到这个词,但是几乎没有什么人好好琢磨过它到底意味着什么。

 
 => 简明语法


表示时间和日期的介词:by

by a time/date/period=at that time or before/not later than that date
在那一时刻或在那一日期或不迟于那一日期
这种表示方法常暗指在那一时刻或日期之前:
The train starts at 6∶10,so you had better be at the station by 6∶10.
火车6点10分发车,所以你最好在6点10分之前到达火车站。
by+a time常常和完成时态连用,尤其与将来完成时态连用(参见第216节):
By the end of July I'll have read all those books.
到7月底我将已把那些书全读完了。
