 <播放语音>

In the main lobby, twenty minutes later
Maddie: Well, that concludes our tour. Hope you had a little bit of a good time.
Dan: It was great, Maddie. We can't thank you enough.
Maddie: It was fun. I recommend on your way out, you go to the gift shop.
Dan: I don't know. Things look pretty pricey in there.
Maddie: Looks can be deceiving. There's some affordable posters, scarves, postcards and other stuff.
Dan: Great, maybe Gabe can pick up a few souvenirs for his friends back home.

(续上期)

二十分钟后,在主厅
曼蒂:好,我们的导览结束了。希望你们都觉得相当愉快。
阿丹:很棒,曼蒂。我们非常谢谢你。
曼蒂:我也觉得很愉快。我建议你们出去时可以去礼品店。
阿丹:我不知道耶。那里的东西看起来都很贵。
曼蒂:光看是不准的。那里还是有平价的海报、围巾、明信片等东西。
阿丹:好,也许盖柏可以买些纪念品回家给他朋友。


重点解说:

★ conclude (v.) 结束
★ deceive (a.) 是deceive‘欺骗’的进行式当形容词用
★ affordable (a.) 负担得起的

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

People who are obese might also be at risk because seat belts do not hold them as securely in a crash. For example, a large amount of fat tissue between the restraint system and the bony thorax acts much like a winter coat: it introduces 'slack' into the restraint system and decreases its performance.

发生车祸时安全带对肥胖者起不到安全作用,这也可能使他们处于危险之中。比如,安全带和多骨的胸腔之间的大量脂肪组织就像是一件冬天的大衣--它使安全带'松弛',从而减弱了安全带的作用。

 
 => 简明语法


above和over (3)

over还可有“多于”或“高于”的意思。
above只有“高于”的意思。
over和 above都可指较高的职位。但 He is over me通常表示He is my immediate superior(他是我的顶头上司),He supervises my work(他督导我的工作)。above则不一定有此含义。
如果河上有一座桥,above the bridge的意思是upstream(在桥的上游)。
over可与meals(饭)/food食物)/drink(饮料)等连用:
They had a chat over a cup of tea.
他们喝茶时聊着天。

above也可作形容词或副词,意为“前文中的”(在图书或文章等中):
the above address上述地址(前面提到过的地址)
see B above参见上文B(前面提到过的B)
