1．Where were you born?你出生在哪里？ 1）born 是动词bear“出生”的过去分词， be born是 出生 的意思，一般只用于 过去时态，通常在be born的后面接时间或 地点作状语： be born in + 年/月/地, be born on+某日。 翻译：a.他出生在1996年。 b.我出生在诸城。 c.妈妈出生生在
2)本句是由Where引导的特殊疑问句。询问某人出生在 何时/何地，用 一般过去 时态。 试翻译：你妈妈出生在哪里？ 她是什么时候出生的？ 2. What was the name of the village? = What was the village’s name? 可译为“这个村子的名字是什 么”。the name of是“ ----的名字 ”的意思。 3. first是序数词。序数词在修饰名词时一般在前面加 the, 但如果序数词前面有形容词性物主代词时，“the” 省略。如： the first a. He is ___________ student to come to the school. (第一个). b. My ___________ teacher is Ms Yao.（第一个） first 试翻译：你的第一个语文老师是谁？ _______________________
4.What were they like? 他们是怎样的人？ “What be sb. like?”句型用来询问某人的外貌 特征/性格特征（而What do/does /did+ 主语 + look like?是问一个人的外貌是什么样的）。 What 作为介词like 的宾语，be like 意为“像”。 回答时句中不用be like，而用“be + 形容词” 或“have + 名词”。 举例：a. What is he like ?他长得什么样？ has He is tall and thin, and he ______ short black hair. 他又高又瘦，并留着短黑发。 b. What was he like? 他是怎样的人？ is very friendly. He_________________.（很友好）
5.She was strict but nice.她很严厉但很和善。 strict 严格的，严厉的。对某人要求严格用be strict with sb, 对某方面要求严格用be strict in sth. 举例：1.我父亲对我要求很严格。 2.他对工作很严格。 3.她是一位严格的老师。 6. friendly “友好的”，与其对应的名词为friend。 friendly的反义词为 unfriendly“不友好的”。相关短 语有： make friends with…与某人交朋友；be friendly to sb 对某人友好 make some American friends eg：He wants to ________________________. (交一些美国朋友) be friendly to We should ____________________ each other. （彼此友好）
