Unit 8 I’llhelp clean up the city parks.

1. I’d like to help homeless people. (P60)我想帮助无家可归的人。



less后缀通常加在名词的后面,构成形容词,表示与原来名词意思相反的形容词,如groundless 无根据的, odorless 无气味的, careless粗心的,useless无用的。

2. You could help clean up the city parks. (P60)你可以帮着打扫城市公园。

◎clean up是“清除、除去(垃圾、污物)”等,使地方干净。

Please clean up the room after the party. 聚会后把房间打扫干净。

We should clean up the dirty parts of the sea.


◎clean up还可以表示“挣得,赢得(多少钱)”。

He cleaned up a small fortune. 他发了一笔小财。


clean oneself up意为“洗干净”。

Your hands are dirty, you’d better clean yourself up.


3. You could give out food at a food bank. (P60)你可以在食品供应站分发食品。 give out在这里是“分发”,“散发”的意思。

Our English teacher gave out the examination papers when the bell rang.

The sun gives out a lot of heat. 太阳能发出热量。

4. He looks sad. Let’s cheer him up.(P61)他看上去很伤心。我们去帮他振作起来吧。

cheer up sb或cheer sb up意为“(使某人)高兴起来,振作起来”。如果是代词做宾语,则将代词放在中间。

He took her to the ballet to cheer her up.


5. This volunteer work takes each of them several hours a week, so it is a major commitment. (P62)这份义工每周花了他们每个人好几个小时的时间,所以这是一个重大的贡献。

(1)each of them是指“他们中的每一个”。如果做主语,则谓语动词用第三人称单数形式。 知识拓展


◎each指一个整体中的每一个,强调个体;every着重于全体的总和,强调整体。试比较: Each has a different book. (强调各有不同。)

Here every child at the age of six can go to school. (侧重整体,无一例外。)


◎each用在代词或复数名词前要用介词of连接,如each of them, each of the boys; every不能

直接跟of连接,如不可以说every of them,而要说every one of them或each of them。

◎every还可以表示“每隔”,后接基数词加名词,如every four weeks, every three months等,此种结构中的every不能用each代替。

She had a rest every fives minutes. 她每隔5分钟就休息一会儿。



误:There are many shops on every side of the street.

正:There are many shops on each side of the street.



6. Not only do I feel good about helping other people, but I get to spend time doing what I love to do. (P62)我不仅对帮助别人感到很满足,而且我还渐渐地花时间做自己喜爱做的事情。

(1)not only ... but also (also可省略)是“不但……而且……”的意思,当置于句首时,not only后面从句的主谓要倒装,但but (also)后面的主谓不用倒装。

◎put off还可意为“关掉”,相当于turn off。

become后可接介词of,构成what becomes of sb/sth 表示“某人/某事进展如何”。 What became of the dreams of our youth? 我们年轻时的理想何在?


系动词get, turn , grow和become都可表示“变得,感到”,其区别是:

8. Jimmy takes after his mother. (P63)吉米的言行举止像他妈妈。

本句中的take after sb 表示“长相或举止像(某个长辈)”,不能用于被动语态。 To my surprise, Jack doesn’t take after his father at all.

9. Jimmy has run out of money. (P63)吉米把钱花光了。

run out of意为“用完”,其主语通常是人,表示主动含义,后面跟宾语。

My mother is too old to live on her own, so we’re fixing up the spare room for her. 我母亲年龄太大了,不能自己生活,所以我们正收拾这个多出的房间让她住。


如果fix up的宾语是“人”的话,则构成fix sb up with sth句型,表示“为某人安排某件事,向某人提供某物”。

I’ll fix you up with a place to stay. 我来给你安排住处。

(2)give sth away 意思是“捐赠,赠送”。

13. The strategies that he came up with worked out fine. (P64)他想到的那些办法获得了成功。

(1)这是一个由that引导的定语从句,先行词是前面的strategies。动词短语worked out在这里作主语the strategies的谓语,意为“产生结果,发展为,结果是……”,后面不可接宾语,主语也不用“人”来充当。
