you, or would not understand what you are going through?或者你是不是担心你的朋友会嘲笑你,会不理解你目前经历的困境呢?Anne Frank wanted the first kind, so she made her diary her best friend.安妮· 弗兰克想要的是第一种类型的朋友,于是她就把日记当成 了她最好的朋友。 Anne lived in Amsterdam in the Netherlands during World War II.安妮在第二次世界大战期间住在荷兰的阿姆斯特 丹。Her family was Jewish so they had to hide or they would be caught by the German Nazis.她一家人都是犹太人, 所 以 他 们 不 得 不 躲 藏 起 来 , 否 则 他 们 就 会 被 德 国 纳 粹 抓 去 。 She and her family hid away for nearly twenty-five months before they were discovered.她和她的家人躲藏了将近 25 个月之后才被发现。During that time the only true friend was her diary.在这段时间里,她唯一的忠实朋友就是她的日记了。She said, “I don’t want to set down a series of facts in a diary as most people do, but I want this diary itself to be my friend, and I shall call my friend Kitty.”她说,“我不愿像大多数人那样在日记中记流水账。我要把这本日记当作我的朋友,我要把我这个朋友称 作基蒂”。Now read how she felt after being in the hiding place since July 1942.安妮自从 1942 年 7 月起就躲藏在那 儿了,现在,来看看她的心情吧。 Dear kitty,亲爱的基蒂: I wonder if it’s because I haven’t been able to be outdoors for so long that I’ve grown so crazy about everything to do with nature.我不知道这是不是因为我长久无法出门的缘故, 我变得对一切与大自然有关的事物都无比狂热。 I can well remember that there was a time when a deep blue sky, the song of the birds, moonlight and flowers could never have kept me spellbound.我记得非常清楚,以前,湛蓝的天空、鸟儿的歌唱、月光和鲜花,从未令我心迷神往过。 That’s changed since I came here.自从我来到这里,这一切都变了。 …For example, one evening when it was so warm, I stayed awake on purpose until half past eleven in order to have a good look at the moon for once by myself.…比方说,有天晚上天气很暖和,我熬到 11 点半故意不睡觉,为的是独 自好好看看月亮。But as the moon gave far too much light, I didn’t dare open a window.但是因为月光太亮了,我不 敢打开窗户。Another time five months ago, I happened to be upstairs one evening when the window was open.还有一 次,就在五个月以前的一个晚上,我碰巧在楼上,窗户是开着的。I didn’t go downstairs until the window had to be shut.我一直等到非关窗不可的时候才下楼去。The dark, rainy evening, the wind, the thundering clouds held me entirely in their power; it was the first time in a year and a half that I’d seen the night face to face…漆黑的夜晚,风吹 雨打,雷电交加,我全然被这种力量镇住了。这是我一年半以来第一次目睹夜晚…… …Sadly…I am only able to look at nature through dirty curtains hanging before very dusty windows.……令人伤心的 是……我只能透过脏兮兮的窗帘观看大自然,窗帘悬挂在沾满灰尘的窗前。It’s no pleasure looking through these any longer because nature is one thing that really must be experienced.观看这些已经不再是乐趣, 因为大自然是你必 须亲身体验的。 Yours, Anne 你的安妮 2. 必修一 Unit 1 Using Language Dear Miss Wang, 亲爱的王小姐: I am having some trouble with my classmates at the moment. 我同班上的同学有件麻烦事。 I’m getting along well with a boy in my class. 我跟我们班里的一位男同学一直相处很好.We often do homework together and we enjoy helping each other. 我们常常一起做家庭作业,而且很乐意相互帮助。We have become really good friends. 我们成 了非常好的朋友。But other students have started gossiping. 可是,其他同学却开始在背后议论起来.They say that this boy and I have fallen in love.

Nearly all of them lived in England.几乎所有这些人都生活在英国。Later in the next century, people from England made voyages to conquer other parts of the world and because of that, English began to be spoken in many other countries.后来, 在 17 世纪英国人开始航海征服了世界其它地区。 于是, 许多别的国家开始说英语了。 Today, more people speak English as their first, second or foreign language than ever before.如今说英语的人比以往任何时 候都多,他们有的是作为第一语言来说,有的是作为第二语言或外语。 Native English speakers can understand each other even if they don’t speak the same kind of English. Look at this example:以英语作为母语的人,即使他们所讲的语言不尽相同,也可以互相交流。请看以下例子: British Betty: Would you like to see my flat? 英国人贝蒂:“请到我的公寓(flat)里来看看,好吗?” American Amy: Yes, I’d like to come up to your apartment. 美国人艾米:“好的。我很乐意到你的公寓(apartment)去。” So why has English changed over time?那么,英语在一段时间里为什么会起变化呢?Actually all languages change and develop when cultures meet and communicate with each other.事实上,当不同文化互相交流渗透时,所有的语 言都会有所发展,有所变化。At first the English spoken in England between about AD 450 and 1150 was very different from the English spoken today.首先, 在公元 450 年到 1150 年间, 人们所说的英语跟今天所说的英语就很 不一样。It was based more on German than the English we speak at present.当时的英语更多地是以德语为基础的, 而现代英语不是。Then gradually between about AD 800 and 1150, English became less like German because those who ruled England spoke first Danish and later French.然后,渐渐地,大约在公元 800 年到 1150 年期间,英语不那 么像德语了。 因为那时的英国的统治者起初讲丹麦语后来讲法语。 These new settlers enriched the English language and especially its vocabulary. 这些新的定居者大大丰富了英语语言,特别是在词汇方面。 So by the 1600’s Shakespeare was able to make use of a wider vocabulary than ever before.所以到 17 世纪,莎士比亚所用的词汇量比 以前任何时期都大。 In 1620 some British settlers moved to America.在 1620 年, 一些英国人搬迁到美洲定居。 Later in the 18th century some British people were taken to Australia too. English began to be spoken in both countries. 后 来,到了 19 世纪,有些英国人也被送往澳大利亚,两个国家的人都开始说英语了。 Finally by the 19th century the language was settled.最后, 到 20 世纪, 英语才真正定形。 At that time two big changes in English spelling happened: first Samuel Johnson wrote his dictionary and later Noah Webster wrote The American Dictionary of the English Language.那时,英语在拼写上发生了两大变化:首先,塞缪尔· 约翰逊编写了词典,后 来,诺厄· 韦伯斯特编纂了《美国英语词典》 ,The latter gave a separate identity to American English spelling.后者体 现了美国英语拼写的不同特色。 English now is also spoken as a foreign or second language in South Asia.现在,英语在南亚也被当作外语或第二语 言来说。 For example, India has a very large number of fluent English speakers because Britain ruled India from 1765 to 1947.比如说, 印度拥有众多讲英语很流利的人, 这是因为英国于 1765 年到 1947 年统治过印度。 During that time English became the language for government and education.在那期间, 英语成了官方语言和教育用语。 English is also spoken in Singapore and Malaysia and countries in Africa such as South Africa.在新加坡、 马来西亚和非洲其它国家, 比如南非,人们也说英语。Today the number of people learning English in China is increasing rapidly.目前在中国学 习英语的人数正在迅速增长。In fact, China may have the largest number of English learners.事实上,中国可能拥有 世界上最多的英语学习者。Will Chinese English develop its own identity? Only time will tell.中国英语会发展出自 己的特色吗?这只能由时间来回答了。 4. 必修一 Unit2 STANDARD ENGLISH AND DIALECTS 标准英语和方言 What is standard English?什么是标准英语?Is it spoken in Britain, the US, Canada, Australia, India and New Zealand? 是在英国、 美国、 加拿大、 澳大利亚、 印度、 新西兰所说的英语吗?Believe it or not, there is no such thing as standard

English.信不信由你, (世界上)没有什么标准英语。Many people believe the English spoken on TV and the radio is standard English.许多人认为, 电视和收音机里所说的就是标准英语。 This is because in the early days of radio, those who reported the news were expected to speak excellent English.这是因为在早期的电台节目里,人们期望新闻播音 员所说的英语是最好的英语。However, on TV and the radio you will hear differences in the way people speak.然而, 在电视和收音机里,你也会听出人们在说话时的差异。 When people use words and expressions different from “standard language”, it is called a dialect.当人们用不同于“标 准语言”的词语时,那就叫做方言。American English has many dialects, especially the midwestern, southern, African American and Spanish dialects.美国英语有许多方言, 特别是中西部和南部地区的方言, 以及黑人和西班牙人的方 言。Even in some parts of the USA, two people from neighbouring towns speak a little differently.在美国有些地区, 即使是相邻城镇的两个人所说的语言都可能稍有不同。American English has so many dialects because people have come from all over the world.美国英语之所以有这么多的方言是因为美国人是来自世界各地的缘故。 Geography also plays a part in making dialects.地理位置对方言的产生也有影响。Some people who live in the mountains of the eastern USA speak with an older kind of English dialect.住在美国东部山区的一些人说着比较古老 的英语方言。 When Americans moved from one place to another, they took their dialects with them.当美国人从一个地 方搬到另一个地方时,他们也就把他们的方言随着带去了。So people from the mountains in the southeastern USA speak with almost the same dialect as people in the northwestern USA.因此, 美国东南部山区的人同美国西北部的人 所说的方言就几乎相同。The USA is a large country in which many different dialects are spoken.美国是一个使用多 种方言的大国。 Although many Americans move a lot, they still recognize and understand each other’s dialects.虽然许 多美国人经常搬迁,但是他们仍然能够辨别、理解彼此的方言。 5. 必修一 Unit 3JOURNEY DOWN THE MEKONG 沿湄公河而下的旅程 PART 1 THE DREAM AND THE PLAN 第一部分梦想与计划 My name is Wang Kun. Ever since middle school, my sister Wang Wei and I have dreamed about taking a great bike trip.我的名字叫王坤。 从高中起, 我姐姐王薇和我就一直梦想作一次伟大的自行车旅行。 Two years ago she bought an expensive mountain bike and then she persuaded me to buy one.两年前,她买了一辆昂贵的山地自行车,然后还 说服我买了一辆(山地车) 。Last year, she visited our cousins, Dao Wei and Yu Hang at their college in Kunming.去 年她去看望了我们的表兄弟 ——在昆明读大学的刀卫和宇航。 They are Dai and grew up in western Yunnan Province near the Lancang River, the Chinese part of the river that is called the Mekong River in other countries.他们 是傣族人,在云南省西部靠近澜沧江的地方长大,湄公河在中国境内的这一段叫澜沧江,在其他国家(境内) 叫湄公河。Wang Wei soon got them interested in cycling too.很快,王薇使表兄弟也对骑车旅游产生了兴趣。After graduating from college, we finally got the chance to take a bike trip.大学毕业以后,我们终于有了机会骑自行车旅 行。 I asked my sister, "Where are we going?"我问我姐姐: “我们要去哪儿?” It was my sister who first had the idea to cycle along the entire Mekong River from where it begins to where it ends.首先想到要沿湄公河从源头到终点骑车旅 游的是我的姐姐。Now she is planning our schedule for the trip.现在她正在为我们的旅行制定计划。 I am fond of my sister but she has one serious shortcoming. She can be really stubborn.我很喜欢我姐姐,但是她有一 个很严重的缺点。 她有时确实很固执。 Although she didn't know the best way of getting to places, she insisted that she organize the trip properly.尽管她对去某些地方的最佳路线并不清楚,她却坚持要自己把这次旅游安排得尽善尽 美。Now, I know that the proper way is always her way.于是,我就知道这个尽善尽美的方式总是她的方式。I kept asking her, "When are we leaving and when are we coming back?" I asked her whether she had looked at a map yet.我 不停地问她,“我们什么时候出发?什么时候回来?”我还问她是否看过地图。Of course, she hadn't; my sister doesn't care about details.当然她并没有看过——我的姐姐是不会考虑细节的。So I told her that the source of the Mekong is in Qinghai Province.于是,我告诉她,湄公河的源头在青海省。She gave me a determined look—the kind that said she would not change her mind.她给了我一个坚定的眼神——这种眼神表明她是不会改变主意的。 When I told her that our journey would begin at an altitude of more than 5,000 metres, she seemed to be excited about it.我说, 我们的旅行将从 5, 000 多米的高地出发,这时她似乎显得很兴奋。When I told her the air would be hard to breathe and it would be very cold, she said it would be an interesting experience.当我告诉她那里空气稀薄,呼吸困难,而且 天气很冷时,她却说这将是一次有趣的经历。I know my sister well. Once she has made up her mind, nothing can change it. Finally, I had to give in.我非常了解我的姐姐,她一旦下了决心,什么也不能使她改变。最后,我只好 让步了。

Several months before our trip, Wang Wei and I went to the library.在我们旅行前的几个月,王薇和我去了图书馆。 We found a large atlas with good maps that showed details of world geography.我们找到一本大型地图册,里面有一 些世界地理的明细图。From the atlas we could see that the Mekong River begins in a glacier on a Tibetan mountain. 我们从图上可以看到,湄公河发源于西藏一座山上的冰川。At first the river is small and the water is clear and cold. Then it begins to move quickly.起初,江面很小,河水清澈而冷冽,然后它开始快速流动。It becomes rapids as it passes through deep valleys, travelling across western Yunnan Province.它穿过深谷时就变成了急流, 流经云南西部。 Sometimes the river becomes a waterfall and enters wide valleys.有时,这条江形成瀑布,进入宽阔的峡谷。We were both surprised to learn that half of the river is in China.我们俩惊奇地发现这条河有一半是在中国境内。After it leaves China and the high altitude, the Mekong becomes wide, brown and warm.当流出中国,流出高地之后,湄公河 就变宽了,变暖了,河水也变成了黄褐色。As it enters Southeast Asia, its pace slows. It makes wide bends or meanders through low valleys to the plains where rice grows.而当它进入东南亚以后, 流速减缓, 河水蜿蜒缓慢地穿 过低谷,流向生长稻谷的平原。At last, the river delta enters the South China Sea.最后,湄公河三角洲的各支流流 入中国南海。 6. 必修一 Unit3 夜晚的西藏山景 PART 2 A NIGHT IN THE MOUNTAINS 第二部分山中一宿 Although it was autumn, the snow was already beginning to fall in Tibet.虽然是秋天, 但是西藏已经开始下雪了。 Our legs were so heavy and cold that they felt like blocks of ice.我们的腿又沉又冷, 感觉就像大冰块。 Have you ever seen snowmen ride bicycles?你看到过雪人骑自行车吗?That's what we looked like!我们看上去就像那样。 Along the way children dressed in long wool coats stopped to look at us.一路上,一些身着羊毛大衣的孩子们停下来看着我们。In the late afternoon we found it was so cold that our water bottles froze.下午晚些时候,我们发现由于天冷我们的水壶 都冻上了。 However, the lakes shone like glass in the setting sun and looked wonderful.然而, 湖水在落日的余晖下闪 亮如镜,景色迷人。Wang Wei rode in front of me as usual. She is very reliable and I knew I didn’t need to encourage her.像往常一样, 王薇在我的前面, 她很可靠, 我知道我用不着给她鼓劲儿。 To climb the mountains was hard work but as we looked around us, we were surprised by the view. We seemed to be able to see for miles.上山很艰难, 但是当 我们环顾四周, (眼前的) 景色让我们感到惊奇, 我们似乎能看到几百里以外的地方。 At one point we were so high that we found ourselves cycling through clouds.在某个时刻,我们发现自己置身高处,彷佛骑车穿越云层。Then we began going down the hills.It was great fun especially as it gradually became much warmer. 然后我们开始下山,这非 常有趣, 特别是天气逐渐变得暖和多了。 In the valleys colourful butterflies flew around us and we saw many yaks and sheep eating green grass.在山谷里,五彩斑斓的蝴蝶翩翩飞舞在我们身旁, 我们还看到牦牛和羊群在吃草。At this point we had to change our caps, coats, gloves and trousers for T-shirts and shorts.这时,我们不得不把帽子、外衣、 手套和长裤脱掉,换成 T 恤衫和短裤。 In the early evening we always stop to make camp.
