  <播放语音>

American lifestyles show how much people respect the time of others. When people plan an event, they often set the time days or weeks in advance. Once the time is fixed, it takes almost an emergency to change it. If people want to come to your house for a friendly visit, they will usually call first to make sure it is convenient. Only very close friends will just "drop by" unannounced. Also, people hesitate to call others late at night for fear they might be in bed. The time may vary, but most folks think twice about calling after 10:00 p.m..

美国人的生活方式表现出人们非常尊重他人的时间。当人们计划一项活动时,他们通常会在几天或几个星期前把时间定好。时间一旦决定,除非情况紧急,一般不会轻易改变。如果有人想去你家看望你,他们通常会先打电话问清楚这是否方便。只有很熟的朋友才会不约而至。此外,人们也不太喜欢太晚给人打电话,因为怕对方可能已上床睡觉了。何时才算太晚并不一定,不过,大部分的人若想在晚上10点钟以后打电话,都会再三考虑。

 
 => 简明语法


第一人称will和shall (3)

在前面已经讲到,通常是由will表示决心。但是,人们有时感到为了表示决心应当用另外一个“较重的”、通常不大用的词,因此就用shall:
(in a speech)We shall fight and we shall win.
(在演说中)我们决心战斗,我们定会赢得胜利。
We will fight and we shall win也一样可用。

有时shall这样用表示许诺,就像第二人称shall所表示的那样:
You shall have a sweet.
你会吃到一块糖。相当于:
I promise you a sweet.
我答应给你一块糖。
We shall win这个句子中,说话人在保证能取得胜利。shall在日常会话中可以这样用:
I shall be there,I promise you.
我会在那里的,我向你保证。

但这里will也一样可用,对学生来说用will可减少麻烦。在对于究竟应当用shall还是用will存有疑问的时候要用will。
