Step 2 language study 1． The teacher is a very enthusiastic woman called Ms. Shen. 这个非常热情的女老师是沈老师。 called Ms. Shen 是过去分词短语作定语，与所修饰的词之间 存在着逻辑上的被动关系，相当于定语从句 who/that was called Ms. Shen。 如： We visited the new library built three weeks ago.
我们参观了三周前建成的图书馆。 The first textbooks written for teaching English as a foreign language came out in the 18th century. 最早为外语教学而写的英语课本出现在十八世纪。 Most of the artists invited to the party were from South Africa. 被邀请来参加聚会的大多是南非艺术家。 注：短语一般放在被修饰词之后，单个过去分词放在被修饰词之前 2．And we have fun. I don't think I will be bored in Ms. Shen's class! 我们上课上得很开心，我认为我不会对沈老师的课厌烦的。 （1）have (great) fun 玩得开心 =have (a lot of) fun = have a wonderful time =enjoy oneself 如： The children were having a lot of fun with the building blocks. 孩子们玩搭积木玩得很开心。 You're sure to have some fun tonight. 今晚你一定会玩得很开心。 They had a lot of fun chatting on the net. 他们在网上聊天聊得很开心。
fun/,是不可数名词，常用于 be fun 结构中，相当于 interesting。如 Seeing monkeys in the zoo is great fun. 在公园看猴子非常有趣。 What fun it is to play a game after work! 工作之余活动一下多么有趣！ 注: 此处的 what fun 不能用 how funny 代替，因为"funny" 是“滑稽的，好笑的”的意思。 ［拓展］for fun=in fun 开玩笑地 make fun of 嘲笑，取笑。如 I'm not saying such a serious thing for fun. 我说如此严肃的事情绝不是开玩笑。 It's bad manners to make fun of the blind. 取笑盲人是不礼貌的。 （2） 我们要注意本句英汉表达的区别。英语中有些动词，如 think, believe, expect, suppose, feel, guess, imagine 等，当 它们后面接一个具有否定意义的宾语从句时， 通常要把主句的动词变 为否定式，而宾语从句中的谓语动词用肯定形式。这种现象称为否定 的转移。如： We don't think there is anything interesting in your pictures. 我们认为你的画并没有什么有趣的地方。
I don't believe what he said is true.我认为他说的不是真话。 I don't suppose they will object to my suggestion. 我想他们不会反对我的建议。 He didn't imagine that she would go abroad. 他料想她不会出国了。 I don't feel the food can last us through the winter. 我认为这食物是不够我们过冬的。 注：在反意疑问句中，若陈述部分是第一人称，think 等词用一 般现在进，则疑部部分需与从句中的主语和谓语保持一致，否则要与 主句的主语和谓语保持一致。如： I don't think it's going to rain tomorrow, is it? 我认为明不会下雨，对吗？ You don't think I have made mistakes, do you? 你并不认为我犯了什么错误，是吗？ 3 In other words, there are three times as many girls as boys. 换句话说，女孩是男孩的三倍。 （1）in other words 意为“换句话”，在句中用作插入成分。 如： In other words, she must give up singing. 换言之，她必需放弃唱歌。 I'm not used to the way you speak to me. In other
words, I don't want to continue our conversations. 我不习惯于你对我谈话的方式。换句话讲，我不想继续我们的谈 话了。 Beethoven wrote many world-famous musical compositions. In other words, he was a great musician. 贝多芬写过许多世界著名乐曲。换句话讲，他是一位伟大的音乐 家。 ①A + be+倍数 +as+ adj. +as+B Asia is four times as large as Europe. 亚洲是欧洲的四倍大。 ②A+be+倍数+ 比较级+than+B Asia is three times larger than Europe. 亚洲比欧洲大三倍。 ③A+be+倍数+the size/length/height/depth/width+ of+ B Asia is four times the size of Europe. 亚洲是欧洲的四倍大。 注: time 表示倍数，一般只限于表示基数词在内的三倍或三倍 以上，若表示两倍可用副词 twice 或形容词 double。 time 表示 的倍数也可以用分数，百分数或某些表程度的副词替换。 The street is twice the length of that one. 这条街是那条街的两倍长。
Ten is double five.十是五的二倍。 This pencil is a quarter as long as that one. 这枝铅笔是那枝的四分之一长。 Our room is 60％ the size of theirs. 我们房间的面积是他 们房间面积的 60%。 4 I'm looking forward to doing it！我非常渴望去做。 look forward to sth./doing sth. 意思是“期待着某事/做某 事”，其中“to”是介词。 I look forward to hearing from you as early as possible. 我期待着早日收到你的来信。 Boys and girls are looking forward to Children's Day. 孩子们期盼着儿童节的来临。 I'm looking forward to his return just as much as he himself seeing me. 我期待他的归来同他盼望见到我的心怀一样强烈。 ［链接］动词＋介词 to 构成的常用短语有： look forward to 盼望…… 转向；翻到…… pay attention to 注意…… get down to 开始认真干…… belong to 属于 涉及，参阅 stick to 坚持 object to 反对 refer to 谈到， turn to 求助于；
point to 指向 理 come to 共计；苏醒 agree to 同意 devote…to… 贡献……给…… 把……比作……
see to 处理，料
reply to 答复 add to 增加 compare…to…
5 The school year is divided into two semesters, the first of which is September through December, and the second is January through May. 一学年有两个学期，第一学期从九月到十二月，第二学期从一月 到五月。 （1）be divided into “把……分成……”。如: Our class is divided into four groups. 我们班分成四组。 America is divided into over 30 stales. 美国分成 50 多个 州。 （2）the first of which…是定语从句，修饰 semesters. 如： We live in a house, in front of which is a small river. 6 I live in Shijiazhuang, a city not far from Beijing （1）far from a) 远离 b) 毫不；远非；一点也不 （2）away from & far (away) from , 两个短语都可以用来作表 语，状语和后置定语。其中，其中 away from 用在表示具体距离的 词后面时，意为“离……（多远）， be away from 意为“离开”。 far
(away) from 通常不和具体的距离的词连用，意为“离某地很远”。 We were sitting ___________(离……太远)the stage to be able to see very much. The Smiths live ___________( 20 英里以外)the city of New York. He works in a company ________________(远离他的家)。 7 …and Ms Shen’s method of teaching is nothing like that of the teachers at my Junior High school. Nothing like 意为 “没有什么能比得上”， “丝毫不象”。 something like 意为“大约”， “几分像”。 It looks nothing like a horse. In summer there is nothing like swimming as a means of keeping fit. It must be something like seven O’clock. 8 Today we introduced ourselves to each other.
