鹰流教练的英语笔记:2009年7月10日星期五

Life is simplified when there is one center, one reason, one motivation, one direction and purpose. 当生活只有一个中心,一个原因、一个动机、一个方向、一个目的时,生活就会变得简洁明了。

下面这篇文章可能很简单,但是关键不在于看懂,而在于你是否能够用简单的英语将这个故事讲出来,说给别人听。即使是一篇简单的小故事,也可以从中学到很多的新知识,训练自己脱口而出的英语技能。

单词:

Crow    n.乌鸦

Pitcher   n.(带柄和倾口的)大水罐

Beak     n.鸟嘴, 喙

Pebble    n.小圆石, 小鹅卵石

The Crow and the Pitcher

A crow felt very thirsty. He looked for water everywhere. Finally, he found a pitcher.

But there was not a lot of water in the pitcher. His beak could not reach it. He tried again and again, but still could not touch the water.

When he was about to give up, an idea came to him. He took a pebble and dropped it into the pitcher. Then he took another and dropped it in.

Gradually, the water rose, and the crow was able to drink the water.

 

一只乌鸦口渴了,到处找水喝。终于他找到了一个大水罐。

然而,水罐里面的水并不多,他的尖嘴够不到水面,他试了一次又一次,都没有成功。

就在他想放弃的时候,他突然想到了一个主意。乌鸦叼来了一块小石子投到水罐里,接着又叼了一块又一块的石头放进去。

渐渐地,水面升高了。乌鸦能够喝到水了。

 

成功哲理:

1He looked for water everywhere. Finally, he found a pitcher.

       She is looking for her lost child. 她正在寻找丢失的孩子。

       Newton found that all masses attract each other.  牛顿发现所有的物质都相互吸引。

 

2He tried again and again, but still could not touch the water.

again and againrepeatedly, frequently. =over and over=time and again=time and time again=over and over again.

       这些实验被一遍又一遍潜心致志地做过。 The experiments were done most carefully again and again.

       这个不认识的单词在课文中反复出现。 the unknown word turned up over and over again in the text"

 

3When he was about to give up, an idea came to him.

Be about to do something 将要做某事

       I was about to leave when you called. 你打电话来时,我正打算出门。
