    visiting all parts of the country. 全国各地巡演

    visiting all parts of the world. ==全世界巡演==

    此处的 visit 不作“参观”讲,而是指“演出”的意思。就像 Goodbye and good luck 一课里面的 meet 作“送别”,在本文后面也有一个 meet, 作“迎接”。 —— 新概念真是一本神书!

    President .. will be visiting China. 某个总统即将访华。

    in all parts of the country. 全国各地

    in all parts of the world. 世界各地

  2. The will be arriving here tomorrow.

    完全可以写成: They will be here … 或者 They will arrive here …

    will be doing 将来进行时 = 一般将来时(will do )

    We will be acting. 我们将有所行动。

  3. They will be meeting them at the station. 他们将到车站去迎接他们。

    Goodbye and good luck 一课里面的 meet 作“送别”,这里的 meet, 作“迎接”。

    • as usual. 和往常一样

    • have a difficult time. 指日子不像平时那样惬意,但无艰辛、困苦之意。

      have a hard time 便有生活艰辛的味道。狄更斯有一本小说叫 《Hard times》译为《艰难时世》

  6. It is always the same on these occasions. 每逢这种场合,情况都一样。

关键句型(Key structures)

  1. will be doing = shall be doing = will do.

    shall只用于第一人称(I / We)

  2. 一般将来时和将来进行时所表述的含义是一致的。

  3. 表达将来的句型大概有以下几种:

    ① shall / will be doing

    ② will do

    ③ be going to do. 打算做某事,是有计划的。但miss、lose这种词不合适用be going to do

    (打算想念你?我打算输?不是很滑稽么 ~ 😂)

    ④ be to do something. 也有打算的意味.

    I am to have a holiday.

    ⑤ be about to do something. 打算……


    这类词有:come, arrive, leave, die, land, …

    I am coming to see you. 我马上来看你。

    I am arriving. 我即将到达。

    I am leaving. 吾将离去。

    He is dying. 他快死了。(正在死也翻译不通顺啊~~)

    The plane is landing. 正在着陆 / 将要着陆。

    ⑦ 一般现在时表达将来:

    If it rains, …

多项选择(Multiple choice questions)

  1. The police, the children, the people, the cattle, … 一律当 复数 看待。

  1. He will leave for Paris before you ___ next week.

    A. will come back B. will be back

    C. come back D. came back


  2. Our next meeting ___ on 1st December.

    A. has been held B.will hold

    C. is to be held D. is holding

    本题肯定用将来时。排除A。D的话,hold不能用现在进行时表达将来,pass。会议是被开,所以用被动语态,选C。B改成 will be held 就对了。

  3. Where there a will, there is a way. 有志者事竟成。

  4. It ___ be Wednesday tomorrow.

    A. is going to B.will

    C.is about to D.is to

    A, C, D 都有”打算“的含义,而明天是星期三客观存在的,不存在什么打算称为星期三。用广义的will即可。

  5. “The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 o’clock”

    “But ___ a delay.”

    A. it will be B. there’d be

    C. there will be D. there is

    肯定用将来时,排除B, D.

    A. it will be,指“它将是xx”,it will be a delay. 它将是推迟。×

    C. there be 句型:① 这是 xx There is a pen 这是一支钢笔 ② 发生了xx There is a fire 这里发生了火灾
