How do you get to school?
通过谈论如何去某个地方,培养学生运用英语 对这一常见话题进行交际的能力。
人们在日常生活中往往要借助各种便利的交通工具 以便于自己的出行。在英语中,主要有三种比较常见的 表示方法。
(一) 含有动词的交通方式表达,如:
  1. How do you get to school? I walk to school.
  2. How do they usually go to school? They take the subway. 此处的疑问词 how 用来表示对出行方式的提问。如果所 涉及的人为第三人称单数或所涉及到的时间为过去时间或将 来时间的话,请看下列例句,并注意其中的一些变化:

  3. How does your sister get to work? She rides her bike.

take the subway / underground / metro
drive a car / a van / a truck … fly a plane
(二) 含有介词by的交通方式表达 除了可以用动词词组来表达出行方式外,我们还 可以用 “by + 交通工具”的方式来表达。 如:
  1. He walks to school. = He goes to school on foot.
  2. They take the train to the city. = They go to the city by train.
  3. She’ll ride the motorbike to work tomorrow. = She’ll go to work by motorbike.

(三) 含有介词 in, on 的交通方式表达

关于距离,我们通常是用以下的句式来问与答: Questions:
  4. How far is it? How far is it from here to the supermarket? How far is the bank from your home? How far do you live from school?

  5. It’s not far. It’s quite near. Our school is quite near to my home. The hospital is close to the park. The farm is far away from home.

  4. How long did it take you to finish all the maths exercises last night? It took me around two hours to finish them.
  5. How long will it take you to paint your house? Maybe it will take us a whole day to do that.
What do you think of sth. / sb. ? 在征询人们对某事的看法时,我们可用 What do you think of ……? 来表达。 例如:

  2. What do you think of Jacky Chen’s new film? It’s really great. I quite like it.

  5. I have no car and there are no trains to take, so I have to depend on the bus.
