Wonderful anniversary (美好的周年纪念日)

2006-07-29 14:15

  藉着鲜花的魅力,我终于度过了一个非常成功及有意义的结婚周年纪念日。高兴之余,我把当天的情况告诉了学生们。

  TEACHER'S

  Dear students.

  Last Thursday, 16th of November, had a most succeesful and meaningful wedding anniversary celebration. Early in the morning I asked somebody to send flowers to my wife at her school in shatin. There were two dozen of pink roses and two dozen red roses. I made a very nice anniversary card myself, and nine stars which symbolize "forever", were attached. Of course, my wife was very excited and she immediately called the paging centre and left me a message——"Thank you very much!" She did it twice. I would like to thank all of you for showing concern for my "BIG DAY", especially those who gave me very good suggestions. My wife's colleagues envied her very much, I guess.

  Immediately after school that day we drove to the romantic place where we went for our anniversary celebration last year. We spent an hour there before going home(we both wanted to go home early because our kids were waiting for us)。 She kept talking about how she felt that morning(she must have been very excited because that was the first time after our wedding that I had sent her flowers—I know I do not measure up to a standard husband)。 A lady movie star was also there but I did not know who she was. I only heard the waiter say so. Thank God that we went home safely(no accident)that evening. I think it is the most successful and meaningful wedding anniversary celebration I have ever had.

  Speaking of test results, I would like to say to you all—"forget about the past and start preparing for tomorrow." The Test Week is gone. Good results! Bad results! We can't change them! It is not good to feel too happy or too sad. Attention! The Mid—Term Examination is coming. There sults have not been decided yet. What you are doing now can change your "destiny".

  Many teachers are complaining that4C is very noisy. Some classmates are feeling very frustrated also since they cannot concentrate because of your noise. I am getting very, very unhappy because you don't love your teachers; you don't love your classates; you are doing something to hurt their feelings. I am getting angry not because you are talking in class. I am getting angry because you don't stop when teachers and classmates are feeling sad.

  留意不同解释:

  ●a most successful…=一个非常成功的……

  ●the most successful…=最成功的

  这里使用somebody是因为:

  ●不想说出那个人的名字。

  ●不知道那个人的名字。

  虽然用twenty-four也可以,但用two dozen则可表现自己的英语能力。

  symbolize之后本应接名词,但forever却是一个形容词,故特别加上引号。

  showing concern for跟being concerned about意思相近,但用前者较为流畅。

  …envied(动词)her very much跟…were very much jealous(形容词)of her意思相近。

  加上immediately更能表明迫切的心情。

  用an是由于hour中的h不发音。

  do not measure up to的意思是“达不到某标准”。

  say so、think so或do so都是属于同一类的短语。

  这里用“现在时”(is)是因为在写此文章时,它仍是最成功的一次。

  留意ever的其他用法:

  ●…the most beautiful lady I haveever seen.

  ●…the most wonderful music I haveever heard.

  ●…the most meaningful thing I haveever done.

  Speaking of可以用About、Regarding、As regards或Talking about等来取代。

  用start preparing或start to prepare都可以。

  gone在这里属形容词,意思相等于over.

  这种并列句不算是正规英语结构但传意效果颇佳;不过在文章中不宜多用。

  留意正确用法:

  ●…have been decided yet. ×

  ●…have been decided aiready. √

  ●…have not been decided yet. √

  destiny的同义词包括:fate、 fortune和lot.

  这里用since而不用because是因为句末需要用because of,故不希望because重复出现。

  用分号(;)可引导读者一口气把这些句子读完,以增强传意效果。

  这里用hurt them也可以。

  这句子的作用是让顽皮的学生们反省自己的过错。

  LANGUAGE

  Capital, inverted commas&exclamation mark

  当我们写一些非公事性或非正规的文章(informal essay)时,我们应该多用一些文字以外的传意工具来帮助传达信息。在前面的单元里也曾经分析过括号和分号的应用;现在让我们来看看“引号”(inverted commas)、“感叹号”(exclamation mark)和“大写”(capital letter)的用处吧。

  当我们说话的时候,往往会把需要强调的内容说得大声一点或把重要的部分说得慢一些。但在写文章的时候,如何能达到这些效果呢?请参考本单元的例子。

  EXAMPLE

  1.…and nine stars which symbolize "FOREVER" were attached.

  2.…and nine stars which symbolize "F-O-R-E-V-E-R" were attached.

  3.…thank all of you for showing concern for my "BIG DAY", …

  4.I would like to say to you all——"FORGET ABOUT THE PAST AND STARTPREPARING FOR TOMORROW."

  5.What you are doing now can change your "destiny".

  以上的例句便是用了引号和大写来增强传意效果。另外,我们说话的声调常常带着感情,这种感情又如何能渗入字里行间,令文章更有感染力呢?请看看本单元中使用感叹号的例子。

  EXAMPLE

  1.Good Results! Bad Results! We can't change them!

  2.Attention! The Mid-Term Examination is coming.

  我发现在学生们的STSs里,出现了不少我在STS中用过的单词和表达手法,这使我感到鼓舞。以下便是学生们模仿我的写作手法而写的STS.横线上的单词未写全,请填写完整。可参考其中的例子。
