Sara: That's right. And besides, our babies will be at lower risk for hereditary disease because we're an interracial couple. Jin: Is that so? Sara: Yes.

1. Recognize your personal strengths and weaknesses. Everyone has both. As self-acceptance grows, shyness naturally diminishes. 2. Set reasonable goals. For example, you may be timid about being with a group of strangers at a party. Don't feel that you must converse with everyone. Concentrate on talking with one or two people.

一个句子可以包含一个主句和一个或多个从句。从句是含有主语和谓语的一组词，它同时又是构成一个句子的组成部分： We knew that the bridge was unsafe. 我们知道那座桥不安全。 He gave it to me because he trusted me. 因为他信任我，才把它交给我的。 He ran faster than we did. 他比我们跑得快。 This is the picture that I bought in Rome. 这就是我在罗马买的那幅画。 （在以上各个例句中，黑体的是从句。） 其他的从句的例子见条件句、关系代词以及目的从句、比较从句、时间从句、结果从句、让步从句等有关章节。学生不需要详细研究各种从句，甚至也不必做到能辨认各种从句，但必须学会识别哪些动词是主句中的主要动词，因为这关系到下面这个重要规则。
