Dating (约会)

2006-07-29 13:37

  一些学生通过STSs告诉我他们开始同异性约会,并问我中学生能否这样。我便在STS中给予他们一点意见。

  TEACHER'S

  Dear students,

  I am happy that you did much better in your second English Quiz. Christina has got full marks. Yes, she gave correct answers to all the questions. It is terrific, marvellous , excellent, wonderful, incredible, …just great ! What's more , Caroline, Eva and Sugus answered 90% of the questions correctly. Seven other girls, but only one boy, took 70%. Let me remind you that this is to help you learn English little by little. SO, please don't copy your neighbours' answers. Okay! And boys, come on; you can do it better.

  One of you asked me about dating - whether or not students of your age should have boyfriends or girlfriends. What should I say? Well, you know the answer. Parents, teachers, principal, social worker, …all are telling you that students of your age should not date . But will you stop thinking about it because of that? Can you then make yourself as cool as ice when a pretty girl or a handsome boy is seated next to you and is very much concerned about you ? To be honest , I could not control myself if I were you. To tell you the truth, when I was at your age, I spent quite a lot of time thinking about my girl classmates (not only one, of course )。 I didn't dare to ask them out for a date but I always imagined I did that. However, I passed my secondary school life quite happily with mere imagination of such.

  The story was different when I was a university student. A girl approached me though I didn't show any interest in her . But my feelings about her changed as she got closer and closer to me. Somehow I started to think that I liked her. Now I know that I made a mistake but at that time I did not realize that . We dated each other for about a year. During that period, I must say, unhappy times were far more than happy times. Many of my friends told me to stop but they did not understand-I wanted to but I could not . One of my friends said to me (His words have stayed in my mind even up till now),“I know you won't stop no matter what I say . But when you can stop, stop!”He was the only one who really understood me . He stood by me and supported me though I was going the wrong way. He also gave me hope that one day I could “come home”

  My first love story did not have a happy ending but your love story might be different from mine . But I do think that you are too young to date. May I wish you all the best! Take good care of yourselves.

  这些并列的形容词意思相近,这样做的目的是增强传意效果,但在同一文章中,这方法只可用一至两次。

  …help you learn及…help you to learn同样是正确用法。

  little by little =bit by bit或a little at a time

  学生常把principal(校长)错拼为principle(原则)。

  留意不同用法:

  ●stop thinking…解作“不再想”。

  ●stop to think…解作“停止(某活动),好好思索”。

  留意正确用法:

  ●…and concerns you×

  ●…and is concerned about you√

  ●…and shows concern for you√

  用were在语法上没有错,因为If I were…是虚拟语气。

  留意正确用法:

  ●I spent a lot of time to think…×

  ●I spent a lot of time thinking…√

  with mere imagination of such意思相等于just with this kind of imagination.

  不要误以为所有以a,e,i,o,u字母为首的单词之前都要用an.正确的方法是看首个音,而不是首个字母。

  这种语法表示“某情况愈来愈……”。例如:

  ●…get older and older

  ●…get poorer and poorer

  times在此处为可数名词,解作“时刻”而非“时间”。

  完成式往往跟till/until一起应用。

  较文雅的说法是:going astray(迷路/步入歧途)。

  come home在这里并非解作“回家”,而是“幡然醒悟”的意思。

  用might而不用may,因为作者也不太相信事情真的如此。

  LANGUAGE

  Adjective

  假如学生们能多学不同的“形容词”(adjective),并在写作时加以应用,文章的感染力定会大增 .在本单元的STS中便有一个相当典型的例子。

  EXAMPLE

  Yes, she gave correct answers to all the questions. It is terrific, marvellous, excellent, wonderful, incredible, …just great!

  我们当然不宜滥用上述的写作手法,因为这难免会使某些读者感到有点夸张失实。不过,有些句子确实是平淡了一点,例如以下的句子。

  EXAMPLE

  1.Seven other girls, but only one boy, took 70%.

  2.A girl approached me though I didn't show any interest in her.

  3.Now I know I made a mistake but at that time I did not realize that.

  假如在以上的句子中加入一些形容词,那么阅读起来时便更有趣味。

  EXAMPLE

  1.Seven other smart girls, but only one talented boy, took 70%.

  2.A nice and attractive girl approached me though I didn't show interest in her.

  3.Now I know I made a major mistake but at that time I did not realize that.

  我作为班主任的4C班算是中四级的问题班,不过班里也有不少同学懂得反省和自爱,从他们的STSs中便可得知。以下是我挑选出来的STSs,请在横线上填写适当的形容词(参考其中例子)。

  Test Your Understanding

  1.Some of my n______ classmates gave you a lot of trouble. I hope they will become lo______  students soon. I have no complaints about you. I think 4C will become an e______  class later.

  2.Last time you gave us a very s______  story of your first love . I feel sorry for you. But how did you meet your b______  wife (I saw her photo)? Can you tell me that?

  3.There are so many things I want to talk to you about but among them, I think only one is really important. Yesterday during the“b______ ”assembly, I saw that some of our p______  classmates did not take their own seats. Mr. Ting then ordered them to go back to their own seats. I remember that he said,“This class is the most t______  class!”

  4.Tomorrow we have to take two d______  quizzes, i.e., Chinese and Geography. It is very difficult for me to memorize those l______  and b______  words in Geography. I am interested in your a______ love story with your wife. I am really looking for ward to hearing it.
