But behind all these things lies the true meaning of Christmas: the importance of sharing and giving love and joy to people around us. 但在所有这些事情之后,隐含的则是圣诞节的真正 含义:与身边的人共享并给予关爱与欢乐的重要性。

First, the Ghost of Christmas Past takes him back to his childhood and reminds Scrooge of his

happier days as a child. 首先,鬼魂 Ghost of Christmas 把他带回到了他的童年,让 Scrooge 想 起了孩提时代的快乐时光。

Everyone is happy, even poor people. 每个人都很快乐,穷人也一样快乐。

USING SUITABLE LANGUAGE 使用合适的语言 Could You Please ...? 你能„„吗? When you visit a foreign country, it is important to know how to ask for help politely. 当你访问 外国时,重要的是要知道如何礼貌地寻求帮助。

For example, “Where are the restrooms?” or “Could you please tell me where the restrooms are?” are similar requests for directions to a place. 例如,“洗手间在哪里?”或者“你能告诉 我洗手间在哪里吗?“,这些用语是相近的问路用语。

Both are correct English, but the first one sounds less polite. 两者都是正确的英语语句,但第 一个听起来不怎么礼貌。

That is because it is a very direct question. It is not enough to just ask a question correctly. 这是 因为它问得太直接了。


We also need to learn how to be polite by being less direct ― or more indirect ― when we ask for help. 我们还需要学习在我们寻求帮助时,如何不那么直接或者间接地提问,从而显得


In English, as in Chinese, we change the way we speak when we talk with different people. 在英 语里面,如同汉语中一样,当和不同的人交谈时,我们会改变说话的方式。

The expressions you use might depend on whom you are speaking to or how well you know them. 你使用的表达式可能取决于你在同谁交谈或者你与他们熟悉的程度。

If you say to your teacher, “When is the school trip?”, this might sound impolite. 如果你对你 的老师说,“学校旅行是什么时候?”,这听起来是不礼貌的。

But if you say, “Excuse me, Mr. West. Do you know when the school trip is?”, this will sound much more polite. 但是如果你说:“对不起,West 先生。

您知道学校旅行的时间吗?”,这听起 来则有礼貌多了。

However, it is all right to ask direct questions in some situations, like with your classmates. 然 而,在某些情况下提问很直接的问题完全可以,比如和你的同学们在一起时。

Usually polite questions are longer and include more language such as “Could you please ...?” or “Can I ask ...?” 通常礼貌的提问语句较长,包括更多如下的语言,如“您可以„„吗?” 或“我可以问„„吗?” It sounds more polite to say, “Peter, could you please tell me your e-mail address?” than “Peter, tell me your e-mail address.” 说“彼得,你能告诉我你的电子邮件地址吗?”比“彼得,告诉 我你的电子邮件地址。


Sometimes we even need to spend time leading in to a request. 甚至有时我们需要花一些时 间,来引出我们的请求。

For example, with a stranger on the street, we might first say, “Excuse me, I wonder if you can help me” or “I’m sorry to trouble you, but ...” before asking for help. 例如,在街上与一 个陌生人交谈时,在寻求帮助之前我们可能先要说,“对不起,我想知道你是否可以帮助我”或 者“我很抱歉麻烦你,但是„„” 。

It might seem more difficult to speak politely than be direct. 似乎直白地讲话比礼貌地讲话更 困难。

However, it is important to learn how to use proper language. 然而,重要的是要学习如何使用 适当的语言。

This will also help you become bet er at English, or any other language you wish to speak. 这也 将帮助你更好地学习英语,或者其他任何你想说的语言。

Pardon me, could you please tell me where to park my car? 对不起,你能告诉我在哪里能停 车吗? Sure. There’s an underground parking lot over there. 当然了。


Where’s the post office? 邮局在哪儿? Sorry. I can’t help you. 对不起。


Paragraph 1 Use more words to help you sound more polite. 第 一 段 使用更繁复的语句,来帮你听起来更有礼貌。

Paragraph 2 It is important to know how to make requests politely. 第二段 知道如何礼貌地发出请求是非常重要的。

Paragraph 3 Good English speakers need to know how to speak politely. 第三段 优秀的讲英语的人,需要知道如何礼貌地讲话。

Paragraph 4 The choice of language depends on the situation and the relationship between the speakers. 第四段 语言的选择取决于场合和谈话者之间的 关系。

You can never imagine how difficult the road to success is. 你永远无法想象成功的道路是多么 的困难。

Many times I thought about giving up, but I fought on. 很多次我想放弃,但是我都坚持住了。

You really require a lot of talent and hard work to succeed. 真的需要很多才能和努力工作,你 才能成功。
