Grammar Focus (P:61)
Phrasal verbs: 1. cheer up 使高兴

The usage of one kind of phrasal verbs: v. ＋ adv. In the v.＋ adv. phrase, v. can be vi. or vt. . If the verb is vi., when a noun will be added, there have to be a prep. after the phrase. If the verb is vt., when a noun will be added, it can be added either between v. and adv. or
after the phrase. The point we should pay attention to is: when a pronoun will be added, it has to be put between v. and adv. e.g. Our time is running out. We are running out of time.
He gave away most of his money to
the poor. (He gave most of his money
away to the poor.)
His money is little, but to our
surprise, he gave it away to the poor.

1．I take after my other. 我张得像我的妈妈。 take after 意为“在外貌、性格等方 面与（父母）相像”。 与take after意思相近的词组还有look like (看去像……)、be like (像……一样)。 Who does the boy look like? 这个男孩看上去像谁？

Practice (2: P65)
A sample version: Sally Brown is a young woman who wants to be a professional singer. As a volunteer she sings at a local hospital to cheer up sick people and also sings at schools. But after she ran out of
her money for singing lessons, she
came up with ideas for making money. She put up signs asking for singing jobs and also called up parents offering singing lessons for children. Now she will be able to continue her lessons and become a professional singer.
1. I’d like to thank you for sending
money to “Animal Helpers”, an
organization set up to help disabled
Thank sb. for …为……而感谢某人
e.g. Thank you for your flowers to me.
e.g. Thomas has a lab set up himself.
2. Being blind, deaf, unable to walk ,or use your hands easily is something that
most people cannot imagine.
此句中 “being…”是动名词做主语。 谓语动词用单数。 “….that most people cannot imagine” 是定语从句, 修饰something。
3. Then one day last year, a friend of mine said that she would like to help me out. Help out 意为 “使某人脱离困境” 可 分开使用。 e.g. Nobody helped me out when I lost my job.
4. You see, I’m only able to have a “doghelper” because of your kind donation! 此句中的be able to 意为 “能够 做……的事”, 可用can替换,主语为物 时一般都使用can, can没有将来时和完 成时, 也不能用于其他助动词后面, 所以
常用be able to do 来替换。
Because of 是介词短语, 表原因,
后面接名词或代词宾语。because 是连词, 词后常接从句。
It is the deepest appeal that is based on love. It is the most vital cause that is out of voluntary will. It is the noblest behavior that is devoted to helping others.
