零点起步,三个月学习《新概念英语》第二册的30课:Lesson 37 The Olympic Games奥林匹克运动会

零点起步,三个月学习《新概念英语》第二册的30课:Lesson 37 The Olympic Games奥林匹克运动会

 

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。学音标练发音是一个骗局,我不相信会有人按照那样的路子可以流利地说出老外能听得懂的英语。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。如果你已经学会五首以上的英语歌曲,相信你的发音一定很像native speaker。我们不建议大家死背,但希望你最好有空多抽一些时间大声地读一读。当你可以特别轻松地读懂英语文章以后再去看那些原来感觉比较复杂的语法概念一定会有完全不同的感觉。

 

 

下面是课文的内容,请大家先读一读:

The Olympic Games will be held in our country in four years' time. As a great many people will be visiting the country,the government will be building new hotels, an immense stadium,and a new Olympic-standard swimming pool. They will also be building new roads and a special railway line. The Games will be held just outside the capital and the whole area will be called 'Olympic City'. Workers will have completed the new roads by the end of this year. By the end of next year, they will have finished work on the new stadium. The fantastic modern buildings have been designed by Kurt Gunter. Everybody will be watching anxiously as the new buildings go up. We are all very excited and are looking forward to the Olympic Games because they have never been held before in this country.

 

  =======================================

 

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):

 

The Olympic Games will be held in our country in four years' time. 

4年以后,奥林匹克运动会我们国家举行 

 

友情提示:多数英语中的被动语态句在翻译时要按照汉语的习惯改成主动句。

 

the Olympic Games 奥林匹克运动会

Olympic[Eu5limpik]adj.奥林匹亚的, 奥林匹斯山的

-ic形容词后缀

 

Olympus[Eu5limpEs]n.(希腊)奥林匹斯山【希神】奥林匹斯山(诸神的住所)天堂; 天国

-us有时作名词后缀

 

held[held]vbl.hold的过去式和过去分词

[el]是辅音字母l的发音:

l[el]n.字母l

 

大家如果真的很想“背”这个句子,在读懂的基础上一分钟不要就可以完成:

The Olympic Games 奥林匹克运动会

will be held将举行

in our country 我们国家

in four years' time.  4年以后(注意in在表“未来”时是指“在……之后”)

 

我们不建议大家死背,但希望你最好有空多抽一些时间大声地读一读。多读一读它就会慢慢地渗透到你的记忆中,根本就用不着刻意地死背。
