Americans use a flashlight, while for the British, it’s a torch. 美国人把手电筒成为 flashlight,然而英国人却叫它 torch。
·基本用法 此句中 while 不是引导时间状语从句,而是是作为并列连词使用,意为 ”然而,而”,强调前后两者对比。 but 重点强调前后意思转折,注意用心体会两者在句中区别。如: Some people waste food while others haven't enough. 有些人很费粮食,然而有些人却吃不饱。 The son was having a good meal at home,while the parents were working in the fields. 儿子在家吃好饭而父母却在田里辛勤劳作。 I ought to have helped her,but I never could. 我本该帮她但没能。 Honey is sweet,but the bee stings. 蜂蜜很甜,但蜜蜂有刺蜇人。

Sometimes the same word has a slightly different meaning, which can be confusing. 有时候,同一个单词在意思上有细微的差别会让人困惑。
·基本用法 句中 which can be confusing 是一个非限制性定语从句, 关系代词 which 指代的是前面整个主句的意思。 Which 作关系代词引导非限制性定语从句时,既可以指代前面句子中的某一名词或代词,也可指代主句中的部 分 或整个句子的内容,在从句中做主语,宾语或表语。如: My brother enjoyed playing basketball, which he really plays well. 我弟弟喜欢打篮球,他打得很好。(which 指代前面的 basketball,在从句中作宾语) She told me she won the match, which was a lie. 她告诉我她赢了比赛,那是一个谎言。(which 指代 she won the match,在从句中作主语) She passed the driving test, which made us very surprised. 她通过了驾驶考试,让我们大吃一惊。(which 指代前面整个主句内容,在从句中作主语)

The British use prepositions where Americans sometimes omit them.

-- 中国首家承诺学习效果的在线教育公司 英国人用介词的地方美国人有时候可能会省略掉。
·基本用法 本句为主从复合句,where 引导的是地点状语从句。Where 引导的状语从句位置比较灵活,可位于主句 前, 也可位于主句后。如: Springs are very short where she lives. 在她住的地方春天很短暂。 Where there is a will, there is a way. 有志者,事竟成。 We should put the medicine where the children can’t reach. 我们应该把药放到孩子们够不到的地方。

When the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw made the famous remark that the British and the Americans are two nations divided by a common language, he was obviously thinking about the differences. 当著名的爱尔兰作家萧伯纳说出“英国和美国是被一种常见的语言分割开来的两个国 家” 一番话时,很明显他考虑了两者之间的差异。
·基本用法 此句为主从复合句,when 引导的是时间状语从句。that the British and the Americans are two nations divided by a common language 是同位语从句,用来说明前面的名词 remark 的内容。同位语从句常跟 在 以下名词的后面:idea,thought,belief,hope,suggestion,doubt,order,news。如: I have no idea when he will come. 我不知道他什么时候来。 Almost everyone expressed the hope that we would meet again. 几乎每个人都表达了想再次见面的希望。 I am glad to hear the news that our team has won the game. 我很高兴听到我们队赢得了比赛的消息。 ·知识拓展 that 引导的定语从句与同位语从句区别: that 引导同位语从句时,是连词,在从句中不充当任何成分,一般不能省略;that 引导定语从句时,是

-- 中国首家承诺学习效果的在线教育公司
关系代词,在从句中充当主语或宾语,若作宾语,可以省略。如: The news that our football team won the match was encouraging. (同位语从句) 我们足球队赢得比赛的消息很鼓舞人心。 The news (that) we heard on the radio was encouraging. (定语从句) 我们在收音机里听到的消息很鼓舞人心。

·基本用法 当不定式,动名词或从句在复合宾语结构中作某些动词的宾语时(如 make,find,see,hear 等),为 保持 句子平衡,常用 it 作形式宾语,而将真正的宾语放在句尾。其结构为:主语+谓语动词+ it +形容词/ 名词/ 代词+不定式/动名词/从句。it 后面的形容词或名词作宾补。如: His dream was that the Olympic Games would make it possible for countries and people to live peacefully side by side. 他的梦想就是奥林匹克运动会能使所有的国家和人们和平共处。 New inventions and discoveries have made it possible for us to think about the world in new ways. 新的发明和发现使我们用新的方式了解世界成为可能。 We found it pleasant that we worked together with them. 我们发现与他们一起工作很愉快。 He thinks it no need talking about it with them. 他认为没有必要跟他们谈。

-- 中国首家承诺学习效果的在线教育公司

It is easier to compare British and American English now that we have the Internet. 因为有了因特网,比较英式英语和美式英语就更容易了。
·基本用法 1. 此句为主从复合句,now that 引导的是一个原因状语从句。表示“既然,因为”,强调已知的事实,同 since 相似,语气较弱。 Since you can't answer the question, I'll ask someone else. 既然你回答不出这个问题,我就问别人了。 Now that you are busy, let me do it for you. 既然你忙,就让我给你做吧。 2. 本句中 it 是形式主语,真正的主语是后面的不定式短语 to compare…。当句子主语过长时,为了保持 句子 平衡,常真正的主语后置,用 it 作形式主语。如: It is hard for some parents to stop their children from playing computer games. 对于一些家长来说,组织他们的孩子玩电脑游戏是很难的。

By the 1850s it was selling one million copies a year, making it one of the most

-- 中国首家承诺学习效果的在线教育公司 popular school books ever. 到 19 世纪 50 年代,这本书一年就卖了一百万册,这使得它成为最受欢迎的学校用书之 一。
·基本用法 本句中的 making it one of the most popular school books ever 是现在分词短语作结果状语。在分词短语 作 状语往往强调一种自然的结果,而动词不定式则强调意料之外的结果。如: Europe football is played in more than 80 countries in the world, making it the most popular game 世界上有 80 多个国家都在踢欧洲足球,这使得它成为最流行的运动。 This kind of fish can eat a person in two minutes, leaving only bones. 这种鱼能在两分钟内把一个人吃掉,只剩下骨头。 They ran to the station, only to be told the train had left. 他们跑往火车站,结果被告知火车已经开走了。

三、重点语法 时态(I): 一般现在时/ 现在进行时/ 现在完成时/ 一般将来时
·含义 “时态”实际上是指谓语动词所表示的动作发生的时间和方式。考虑一个谓语动词的时态时,首先要考虑这 个动作是发生在过去,现在,将来,还是过去将来;其次要考虑这个动作发生的方式是一般,进行,完 成, 还是完成进行。两个方面结合。 ·用法 一般现在时 1. 表示现在习惯或经常反复发生的动作或存在的状态,常与 usually,always,sometimes,often, frequently, every day/week/year/morning...on Sunday 等时间状语连用。如: He often does his homework in his study. 他经常在他的书房做作业。 2. 表示主语现在的特征、性格和状态。如: The dictionary belongs to me. 这本词典是我的。 3. 表示客观规律、正确的事实或科学真理、格言,以及其他不受时间限制的客观存在。如:
