 <播放语音>

Janie drops a letter on the ground and Li-an picks it up
Li-an: [Looks at the envelope] Here you go. Hey, isn't your husband's last name Baker?
Janie: [Laughs] Yeah, but I decided to keep my maiden name after I married.
Li-an: Really? I thought all Western women changed their last name to their husband's after they married.
Janie: Well, these days things are changing somewhat. Some women take their husband's names.
Li-an: And some women keep their maiden names. Why did you choose to do that?
Janie: Well, one reason was that I work in PR, so a lot of people know my name. So it didn't make sense to change it.

(续上期)

珍妮掉了一封信在地上,丽安捡起来
丽安:(看了看信封)拿去。嘿,妳的先生不是姓贝克吗?
珍妮:(笑)是啊,但我决定婚后保留娘家的姓。
丽安:真的吗?我以为所有的西方女性婚后都要改从夫姓。
珍妮:嗯,现在的情况有点改变了。有些女性会从夫姓。
丽安:而有些女性会保有娘家姓氏。妳为何做这样的选择?
珍妮:嗯,一个原因是因为我在公关界工作,许多人知道我的名字。所以没道理去改姓。


重点解说:

★ envelope (n.) 信封
★ make sense 有道理,说得通
★ PR (n.) 公关业,即‘公共关系’public relations

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

If your language is not the main language spoken, make sure you take some classes in the local language before you go. Phrase books are all very well, but listening is the best way to learn. Audiotapes are a good alternative.

如果你讲的语言不是当地的主要语言,在你出去之前应当学点当地语言的课程。各种短语词汇书是必要的,但学习语言的最好方法是听。听录音磁带是一种很好的选择。

 
 => 简明语法


can与 be able

1. shall/will be able是唯一的将来时形式:
Our baby will be able to walk in a few weeks'
我们的宝宝再过几个星期就能走路了。

2. can和be able都可用于现在时,can则更常用些:
Can you/Are you able to type?
你会打字吗?
I can't pay you today'Can you wait till tomorrow?
今天我不能付你钱。你可以等到明天吗?
Could you wait?
您能等候吗?

3. 在现在完成时中,必须用be able形式:
Since his accident he hasn’t been able to leave the house'
自从他遇到意外以后,他一直没能出门。
