等级相反，英语用less来减弱、消减 比较的等级。这时less并不是little的比较级形式，而是 独立地用作一个副词，意为“不那么……”。例如： We go to the movies less often than we used to. Her performance today is less satisfying. Though作为连词有时也可以放在句末，翻译成中文时， 多按照中文习惯，把连词放在前面。e.g It?s not going to snow, it may rain, though.
A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart. 一个真正的朋友是在需要时给你帮助,使你感动。 此句中“ hand”引申为“ 帮助， 援助”； “heart” 则为“情感；感受” 例如： Can you give me a hand? 你能他帮我一把吗? The movie touched the hearts of all the people at the cinema. 这部电影让在场的所有观众动容。 记一记 reach for your hand （伸手帮你一把） touch your heart （令你感动）
8. I don?t really care if my friends are the same as me or different.
“ if ” 译为“ 是否” 而非“ 如果”。 If 后
所引导的句子是主句 I don?t really care 的
谓语动词care 的宾语， 故称作“ 宾语从句”
I don?t care if he likes or not-I?m coming.
