以文中Percy Buttons的视角复述:

I am Percy Buttons. I was brought up in Bridge Street. I have been out of work for five years. I have to call at every house in the street once a month to ask for a meal as I don't have other sources of income. Yesterday I visited Mr. Huang, who came here a month ago. I stood on my head and sang songs to welcome her to this street. She seemed very happy. In return for this, she gave me a meal and a glass of beer. It's so kind of her to provide me with so much food that I could hardly finish them! In the end, I put a piece of in my pocket and thanked again Mr. huang for her kindness.



记录:难度☆ 2016年2月26日18:33:33

1,开始学习冠词和some,以及初步的可数不可数概念。a, the, some的使用。

2,开始接触短语概念,文中有些短语很实用,尤其课后练习提到的knock相关的短语动词:knock off, knock out, knock at, knock over.

3,在写"Later a neighbour told the writer that the beggar's name is Percy Buttons and he calls at every house in the street once a month to ask for a meal and a glass of beer."这个句子时,原本想写成"Later a neighbour told the writer that the beggar's name is Percy Buttons, who calls at every house in the street once a month to ask for a meal and a glass of beer." 但觉得头重脚轻,就放弃。然后转而考虑"...is Percy Buttons and (that) he calls at every house..."这里是否需要that. 这个已经上升到修辞方面了,比较难。

总体来说不难。今天原本打算提加薪,结果人事经理主动提了。做了一年,或许真的该做决断了,尽管我挺喜欢车间的大家。
