今天和Andrea搭档的老师,从Tom换成了Sand(站长听发音实在是辩不清,此人就是讲Calendar Phrase的那个老师,留了小胡子)

Hi friends, and welcome to the mall.Lets talk in english, my name is Andrea.Today we continue our lesson about Family Photos.As we learn how to talk about people and describe them.I hope Emma can remember all the names of her different family members. Well here is your Find It question for today:What happened to Emma’s nephew’s hair?
I’ll say that again,”What happened to Emma’s nephew’s hair?
From now, let’s keep learning with Christina.

接下来Christina老师登场,给大家预习本课的单字。
1、chubby adj.['tʃʌbɪ]胖乎乎的;圆胖的;丰满的。牛津给出的英文解释是slightly fat in a way that people usually find attractive
2、smart adj. 聪明的,机灵的,
3、turn v.转变
4、nice-looking adj.好看的;有吸引力的。牛津英文解释为attractive
5、wise adj.充满智慧的,聪明的,明智的

单字讲解之后,就是对话了。

Conversation A
(上接昨天的对话)
Jack: OK, now I’ll describe someone.She is really short and chubby, and she has curly hair.
Emma: Short and chubby, hmm it’s probably one of my new babies.Can you describe her some more?
Jack: She has blue eyes. Actually, there are two girls in this picture, and they look the same.
Emma: Oh, those must be Marthas twins.What are their names? Nicole and Alyssa.
Jack: You are right, good job.
讲解时,Sand说了chubby理解为a little fat but still healthy,可以用在说孩子和动物时,切记不要形容人为fat.curly hair就是指头发不是straight,一卷一卷的。

Conversation B
Tom: OK, this man has black hair with gray in it.He is wearing glasses and looks smart.
Jack: How can you tell?
Tom: Glasses always make people look smart.This guy looks kind of serious.
Emma: Is it Mike? He’s my cousin, and he’s always serious.
Tom: No.
Emma: Is the man young or old?
Tom: Young.
Emma: Then it’s Chris. My nephew’s hair started turning gray in college.
这里讲到了两个关键字,smart和turn,当讲到smart时,Sand的动作和表情很搞笑,表明了想让Andrea指出他就是smart,这也是外教的幽默所在。

Conversation C
Jack: All right! This lady is nice-looking. She is holding a litter girl but the girl doesn’t look like her.
Emma: Oh, that is Katie and her daughter,,,Kelly?
Jack: Kiley.
Emma: Katie adopted Kiley from China.
Jack: Cool.
Tom: Ha ha, Ok, here is one.This woman is wise and funny, and she’s a good friend.
Emma: How can you tell that from a picture?
Tom: I know this person.
Jack: It’s a picture of you, Emma.
讲解时Andrea提到wise people are smart, but they also have a lot of experience。
但是,adopt这么重要的单词,他们竟然没讲。为此,站长查了查巨厚的字典:
adopt v.
1.(对于小孩子来说)收养,领养
2.(对于方法来说)采用(某方法);采取(某态度)
3.(对于建议来说)正式通过,表决采纳(建议、政策等)
adopted adj.领养的,收养的
adoption n.收养,领养

再次来到Information Desk.Christina说,在西方,一般不要形容别人或自己fat,那是不礼貌或者是一种侮辱,一般应说成chubby或bigger.
讲某人是双胞胎时,可说成She is one of the twins.或She is a twin.
英文里讲“白头发”为gray hair.
adopted son养子 adopted daughter养女 那么说亲生子,可以说He is my own son.或者说成He is my natural son.

Sing and Say时段的老师Black Pearl,声音很成熟,但歌曲的调子却好像总是一成不变的。
Calendar Phrase今天的句子是Is that your cousin?那是你的堂哥(表、兄弟姐妹)吗?
今天的QUESTION OF THE DAY是How would you describe youself?
