Li goes to Sho's house
Li: What are you doing?
Sho: Just reading about Europe.
Li: Does it mention Paris nightclubs?
Sho: Actually, I'm reading about churches in Paris.
Li: We can't meet boys in churches.
Sho: You have such a one-track mind! We'll have plenty of time to do both.
Li: You're right. I'm so excited!
Sho: This is my first time leaving Taiwan. I wish Zhixiong could come.
Li: Bring your boyfriend! Are you crazy?
Sho: Of course I'd bring him.

(下期续)

小莉去小秀家
小莉:你在干什么?
小秀:看看有关欧洲的资料。
小莉:上面有提到巴黎的夜店在哪里吗?
小秀:事实上,我是在看巴黎的教堂。
小莉:我们在教堂没办法认识男孩啊。
小秀:你的脑子里就只有这件事嘛!我们有的是时间可以两全其美。
小莉:没错。我好兴奋!
小秀:这是我第一次离开台湾。我希望志雄也能去。
小莉:带你男友一起去!你疯了吗?
小秀:我当然会想带他一起去。


重点解说:

★ nightclub (n.) 夜总会;nightspot (n.)(口)夜总会
★ one-track (a.) (口)固执于一个想法的。one-track mind是指‘心中只想着一件事'
★ have plenty of time 有很多时间

While more research is needed, Wolverton says the study has shown that common indoor landscaping plants can remove certain pollutants from the indoor environment. "We feel that future results will provide an even stronger argument that common indoor landscaping plants can be a very effective part of a system used to provide pollution free homes and work places," he concludes.

虽然还需要进一步的研究,但是沃尔弗顿说:这项研究已经表明,普通室内观赏植物能够清除室内环境中的某些污染物。他的结论是:"我们认为,未来的研究成果将会更有力地证明,普通室内观赏植物可以作为一个系统的一部分发挥效力,营造无污染的住所和工作场所。"

 
 => 简明语法


表示时间的介词: after, afterwards(副词)

after是介词,后面必须接名词、代词或动名词:
Don't bathe immediately after a meal/after eating.
不要饭后/吃饭后就游泳。
Don't have a meal and bathe immediately after it.
不要就餐之后立即游泳。

如果我们不想用名词、代词或动名词,就不能用after,但可以用 afterwards(= after that)或者 then:
Don't have a meal and bathe immediately afterwards.
(译文同上)
They bathed and afterwards played game/played games afterwards./ They bathed and then played games.
他们游了泳,然后做游戏。

afterwards可以位于句首或句末并且可以由soon,immediately,not long等修饰:
Soon afterwards we got a letter.
不久之后我们收到了一封信。
We got a letter not long afterwards.
(译文同上。)
after也可以作连词用:
After he had tuned the piano it sounded quite different.
他给钢琴校过音之后,钢琴的声音完全不同了。
