  Lesson 141 Sally’s first train ride

  听录音,然后回答问题。Why was the mother embarrassed?
为什么母亲感到尴尬?


Last week, my four year old daughter, Sally, was invited to a children’s party. I decided1 to take her by train. Sally was very excited because she had never travelled on a train before. She sat near the window and asked questions about everything she saw. Suddenly, a middle-aged2 lady got on the train and sat opposite Sally.
“Hello, little girl.” She said. Sally did not answer, but looked at her curiously3.
The lady was dressed in a blue coat and a large, funny hat. After the train had left the station, the lady opened her handbag and took out her powder compact4(粉盒). She then began to make up her face.
“Why are you doing that?” Sally asked.
“To make myself beautiful,” the lady answered. She put away her compact and smiled kindly5.
“But you are still ugly.” Sally said. Sally was amused, but I was very embarrassed!

参考译文
上周,我4岁的女儿萨莉被邀请去参加一个儿童聚会。我决定带她乘火车去。萨莉非常激动,因为她从未乘过火车。她靠车窗坐着,对她所看到的一切都要问个明白。突然,一个中年妇女上了火车,坐在萨莉的对面。“你好,小姑娘,”她说。萨莉没回答,却好奇地看着她。那位妇女穿着一件蓝色的大衣,戴着一顶大而滑稽的帽子。火车开出车站后,那位妇女打开了手提包,拿出了粉盒。然后她开始打扮起来。“你为什么要那样做呢?”萨莉问。“为了把自己打扮漂亮啊,”那位妇女答道。她放好了粉盒,慈祥地微笑着。“可是你仍然难看呀,”萨莉说。萨莉感到很有趣,而我却很尴尬。

 

  自学导读
1.my four-year-old daughter,我那4岁的女儿。
four-year-old 是名词 daughter的定语。各词用连字符连在一起,构成一个复合形容词。注意在这个复合词中仅用 year,而不用复数:
a thirteen-year-old girl 一个13岁的姑娘
2.… Sally was invited to a children's party. ……萨莉被邀请去参加一个儿童聚会。
这是一个被动语态的例子。在英文中,如果想避免用含混不清的词(如 someone等)作主语,常常可使用被动词态。(具体请参见本课语法部分。)被动语态由相应的be动词加上过去分词构成:
It is repaired regularly.
它定期修理。
They are corrected regularly.
它们得到了定期校正。
He was met at the station this morning.
今早有人在车站接他。
3.a middle-aged lady,一位中年女士。
middle-aged是一个复合形容词,由名词+过去分词构成。又如:
hand-made手工制作的
4.opposite Sally,在萨莉的对面。
这是介词短语,作状语,表示sat的具体情况。
5.take out,拿出。
6.make up her face,往她的脸上施脂粉。
make up意为“化妆”、“打扮”(指擦胭脂、抹粉)。
7.To make myself beautiful …
把自己打扮漂亮……
这是一个省略句,句首省略了I am doing that,而只留下这个作目的状语的动词不定式短语。
8.put away,收拾好,储存备用。


语法  Grammar in use
被动语态(1)
英语动词有主动语态和被动语态之分。在主动句中,动词的主语是执行动作的人或物。在被动句中,主语是动作的承受者。
在英语中被动词态用得很普遍,这样做可以避免用不明确的词作主语,或是将说话的重点放在事件而不是造成该事件的人或物上。
被动语态的构成: be +过去分词。
过去分词不一定指过去。请看例句:
(1)一般现在时形式: am/are/is +过去分词:
The room is aired regularly.
这个房间定期通风。
The knives are sharpened regularly.
刀定期磨。
(2)一般过去时形式: was/were +过去分词:
She was dressed in red.
她身穿红色衣服。
The windows were opened this morning.
窗户今早是开着的/被打开了。
(3)英语中表达感情的动词通常可用于被动式,这些动词如
amuse, embarrass, worry, surprise, interest, upset等:
She is embarrassed.
她感到尴尬。
They were worried.
他们感到担忧。
