零点起步,三个月学习《新概念英语》第二册的30课:Lesson 32 Shopping made easy 购物变得更方便

 

友情提示:我们说的零点起步并不是指完全的零点,真的希望大家至少能够唱熟五首以上的英语歌曲以后再开始这里的学习。建议大家先读一读《唱熟二千单词,告别“哑巴英语”(建议从这里开始你的英语学习)》栏目里的文章。

 

下面是课文的内容,请大家先读一读:

Y People are not so honest as they once were. The temptation to steal is greater than ever before -- especially in large shops. A detective recently watched a well-dressed woman who always went into a large store on Monday mornings. One Monday, there were fewer people in the shop than usual when the woman came in, so it was easier for the detective to watch her. The woman first bought a few small articles. After a little time, she chose one of the most expensive dresses in the shop and handed it to an assistant who wrapped it up for her as quickly as possible. Then the woman simply took the parcel and walked out of the shop without paying. When she was arrested, the detective found out that the shop assistant was her daughter. The girl 'gave' her mother a free dress once a week!  =======================================

 

下面请跟我们一起来分解分析一下(建议下载《21天免费精通新概念》软件,每天重点听其中的三、四句):
