Unit 2. English around the world 课堂讲解 一、知识讲授 1、more than (1)、more than + 数字,意为“超过，多于” ，相 当于 over。 eg：I’ve known David for more than 20 years. 我认识戴维二十多年了 (2)、more than one + n.（单数）意为“不止一 个??”
，在语意上虽为复数，但作主语时， 谓语动词用单数形式。 eg：More than one girl holds such a view in this school. (3)、more than +n.,意为“不只是，不仅仅”; “ more than ＋形容词”相当于“很，非常” ； “not more than 意为“最多” “至多” ，相当 于 at the most;No more than 意为“仅仅” “只 有” ，相当于 only； eg：Her speech was more than good. It was perfect. 注：more than 修饰名词、数词、动词，还 是修饰形容词、副词、分词以及整个句子， 都要放在被修饰成分的前面。
【拓展】 no more ...than 和...一样不(两者都否定) not more...than 不如...（前者不如后者） more ? than ?比 ? 更 ?；与其说 ? 倒 不如说 ? 2.

② __________________ （ 顺 便 问 一 下 ）， where has he gone？ ③ I will buy some bread___________________ （在回家的路上） 。 3．Why not go by underground？ 为什么不坐 地铁去呢？ Why not do ？是个常用句型，用来提建议，意 为 ―为什么不?‖ 思考： what about？和 how about？也用于提建 议，它之后的动词是什么形式？ 小试牛刀： How about ____________？我们去游泳怎样？ 4. the road to ?通向??之路 5. at the end of 在??末端，在??尽头， by the end 最后（=finally） 6.Native English speakers can understand each other even if they don ’ t speak the same kind of English. 以英语作为母语的人，即使他们所讲的语言不 尽相同，也可以相互理解。 native English speakers 以英语作为母语的人 even if 是个连词短语，引导让步状语从句，含 义是“即使，尽管” 。让步状语从句的动词用一 般 现 在 时 表 示 将 来 假 设 。 Even if 相 当 于
even though。 潜心辨析：even if／though 与 as if／though 前者引导让步状语从句， 意为 “即使” ， “尽管” ； 后者引导方式状语从句， 意为 “仿佛” “好像” 。 I can still remember_______________it was so long ago.
