 <播放语音>

Li-an
: That's understandable. I just didn't know you could do that legally.
Janie: Sure you can. Also, I didn't really like the whole hyphenated last name thing.
Li-an: Is that where you put a hyphen between your husband's surname and yours?
Janie: Yeah, then both of you have both last names. But I could never decide whose last name should be first.
Li-an: Hah, that's funny. In Taiwan, women have both names. For example, I am Ms. Wang, but I am also Mrs. Huang.
Janie: Hey, I like that. Maybe I should do that, too!

(续上期)

丽安:可以理解。我只是不知道这样做是合法的。
珍妮:当然可以这样做。此外,我也不太喜欢用连字号把姓连起来那套作法。
丽安:就是在妳先生和妳的姓氏中间加一个连字号吗?
珍妮:是啊,这样夫妻俩就都有两个姓了。但我都无法决定谁的姓应该摆前面。
丽安: 哈,真有趣。在台湾,女人保有两种姓名。例如,我是王小姐,但也是黄太太。
珍妮:嘿,我喜欢那样。或许我也应该这样做!


重点解说:

★ legally (adv.) 合法地
★ understandable (a.) 可被理解的
★ hyphenate (v.) 加上连字号,hyphen (n.) 连字号

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Any travel agent can tell you what the average rainfall will be and where the best tourist destinations are, but that doesn't help much. Ask around to find out if anyone you know has been there. Ask the travel agent for any less tourist oriented information and check libraries and bookstores. Make sure you pack toiletries, medicines, and personal items before you leave. Sure, you can find a lot of things in the new country, but the brands and ingredients might be different and confusing, so go prepared. That will make it easier when you eventually do have to do some shopping.

任何一个旅行社都会告诉你所去地的平均降雨量是多少和最好的旅游景点是哪些,但这没有太大的帮助。问问你周围是否有人去过那里。应到旅行社打听其他各种有关旅行的信息,并到图书馆和书店去查查。确保在你离开之前带上了化妆用品、药品和个人用品。毫无疑问,你可以在你所去的国家找到许多东西,但品牌和成份可能不同,让人搞不清楚,所以应该有所准备。这将使你最终在需要买东西时容易些。

 
 => 简明语法


could (1)

如存在着条件的含义,could可以用来表示现在时的意义:
Could you run the business by yourself?
你能自己管理这企业吗?(如果必要的话)
Could he get another job?
他能找到另一份工作吗?(如果他辞掉这份工作的话)
I could get you a copy'
我可以给你弄到一本。(如果你想要的话)
在头两个例句中could可以用would be able替代。
