Lesson 24 It could be worse 不幸中之万幸

First listen and then answer the question.

听录音,然后回答以下问题。

Had the writer's money been stolen?

I entered the hotel manager's office and sat down. I had just lost $50 and I felt very upset. 'I left the money in my room,' I said, 'and it's not there now.' The manager was sympathetic, but he could do nothing. 'Everyone's losing money these days,' he said. He started to complain about this wicked world but was interrupted by a knock at the door. A girl came in and put an envelope on his desk. It contained $50. 'I found this outside this gentleman's room,' she said. 'Well,' I said to the manager, 'there is still some honesty in this world!'

manager  [ˈmænidʒə]  n. 经理

upset  [ʌpˈset]  adj. 不安

sympathetic  [ˌsimpəˈθetik]  adj. 表示同情的

complain  [kəmˈplein]  v. 抱怨

wicked  [ˈwikid]  adj. 很坏的,邪恶的

contain  [kənˈtein]  v. 包含,内装

honesty  [ˈɔnisti]  n. 诚实

我走进饭店经理的办公室,坐了下来。我刚刚丢了50英镑,感到非常烦恼。“我把钱放在房间里,”我说,“可现在没有了。”经理深表同情,但却无能为力。“现在大家都在丢钱,”他说。他开始抱怨起这个邪恶的世道来,却被一阵敲门声打断了。一个姑娘走了进来,把一个信封放在了他桌上。它里面装着50英镑。“这是我在这位先生的房门外捡到的,”她说。“是啊,”我对那位经理说,“这世界上还是有诚实可言的!”

课堂笔记:

课文详注 Further notes on the text

1.I had just lost £50 and I felt very upset. 我刚刚丢了50英镑,感到非常烦恼。

(1)lose指“遗失”、“丢失”时,宾语一般为钱物:

Don't lose your ticket/key.

别把你的票/钥匙丢了。

(2)feel +形容词一般指心情“觉得……”、“感觉到……”:

Do you feel hungry now?

你觉得饿吗?

I feel happy/excited.

我觉得开心/激动。

feel upset 表示“心烦意乱、“很苦恼”。

2.The manager was sympathetic, but be could do nothing. 经理深表同情,但却无能为力。

could do nothing可以补全为 could do nothing about it,即关于此事他什么忙也帮不上。do为完全动词,表示“做”、“干”。do类似的用法还有:

Is there anything I can do for you?

我能给您做点什么吗?

3.Everyone's losing money these days. 现在大家都在丢钱。

(1)days可以指“时期”、“时代”,如 in his boyhood days(在他的童年时代)。these days指“现今”。

(2)现在进行时在这里表示动作的频繁,仿佛随时都有人丢钱似的。

4.‘Well,’I said to the manager,‘there is still some honesty in this world!’“是啊,”我对那位经理说,“这世界上还是有诚实可言的!”

well作为感叹词可以表达多种感情,如惊讶、让步等,在这里表示松了一口气(因为钱没丢)。

语法 Grammar in use

复习第2~23课部分语法

除了第23课语法中复习过的内容外,在第2~23课中,我们还学习了what引导的感叹句、动词的直接宾语和间接宾语、否定句的两种形式、动词和小品构成的短语动词、作形容词的现在分词与过去分词的区别等内容。

What a beautiful garden (it is)!

多美的花园!

He lent me his dictionary.

他把字典借给了我。(me为间接宾语,his dictionary为直接宾语)

与动词连用的小品词如果能与动词分开使用,即它的位置可变动,那么这个小品词一般为副词;如果位置不可变动,则一般为介词。

I'm looking for my brother.

我在找我的兄弟。(for为介词)
