Sally is leaning against the door in an office elevator
Chen: I wouldn't lean against that elevator door if I were you.
Sally: [Stands upright and turns] Why? It seems sturdy enough.
Chen: Just the other month, there was a report of a little girl who died by doing that.
Sally: Are you serious? How could that happen?
Chen: The elevator door wasn't attached at the bottom and opened as soon as she pressed against it.
Sally: Scary! What a horrible way to die! Why didn't I hear about that in the news?
Chen: Maybe it didn't make it into the English news, but the Chinese press covered it in a major way.
Sally: I bet that caused an explosion of lawsuits.

莎莉靠着办公室电梯的门
小陈:我是妳的话就不会靠着电梯门。
莎莉:(站直转身)为什么?看起来蛮坚固的啊。
小陈:就在前几个月,有个新闻报导说一个小女孩因此而丧命。
莎莉:你是说真的吗?怎么可能会有那种事?
小陈:电梯门的底部没有密合,她一压到就打开了。
莎莉:好恐怖!这种死法真惨!我怎么没听到那个新闻?
小陈:也许上不了英文新闻,可是中文媒体有大幅报导。
莎莉:我敢说那一定会有一连串的诉讼。


重点解说:

★ lean (v.) 靠,倚靠。lean against...是‘靠着……’
★ elevator (n.) 电梯
★ upright (adv.) 直立地
★ sturdy (a.) 坚固的
★ press (v.) 按压。the press为‘新闻媒体’
★ horrible (a.) 可怕的,令人毛骨悚然的
★ make it (口)成功,得以……
★ explosion (n.) 大量快速出现,爆炸
★ lawsuit (n.) 诉讼案件

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

Each satellite has its own orbit which is selected according to its purpose. Communications satellites, for example, have a geostationary orbit. That is an orbit which turns at the same speed as the rotation of the Earth. Satellites used for weather forecasting pass over the two poles of the Earth. By so doing, a different part of the Earth's surface is viewed on each successive orbit.

每一颗人造卫星根据其不同目的选用不同的运行轨道。比如,通讯卫星有一个对地静止轨道。这种轨道是与地球自转保持同步的。用于天气预报的卫星的轨道会通过地球的两极。这样,地球表面的每一部分在卫星连续的轨道运行中都被一览无遗。

 
 => 简明语法


过去进行时替代一般过去时的用法 (3)

如想问起一段时间怎样度过时,用过去进行时态要用比一般过去时显得有礼貌:

What were you doing before you came here?
(你来这里之前做什么工作?)
要比 What did you do be- fore you came here?听起来有礼貌。

另一方面, What were you doing in my room?(你在我的房间里干什么来着?)可能表示这样一种情感:我认为你没有权利在我的屋子里。但 What did you do in my room?却毫无这种含义。
