  本课简介
  “ The Great American Garage Sale”这篇课文通过对一户普通的美国家庭把家里不再需要的物品整理出来进行现场旧货出售一事的描述,告诉读者现场旧货出售在美国深受普通百姓的喜爱,买卖双方都乐在其中。究其原因不外乎如下几点:
  
  1)充抵不断上扬的生活费用;
  
  2)享受结识新朋友的快乐;
  
  3)希冀有意外收获的美梦成真。Garage sale 既降福予者也降福取者,只是有一天买东西的人会成为卖东西的人,因为他也遇到了同一个问题-如何打发掉家里多余的物品。
  本课主要语言点
  
  1.Not long ago, Charles Erickson and his family decided to do some Spring housecleaning.
  动词do 常与一些名词连用。表示从事某种普通的活动或工作,比如:do you teeth ( brush your teeth ) ,
  do the flowers ( arrange the flowers ) , do the dishes ( wash the dishes )。再请看一些例句:
  
  1)When mother was away, I did the cooking and Tom did the cleaning.(妈妈不在家时,我做饭,汤姆搞卫生。)
  
  2)Who does the washing up after each meal?(每顿饭后谁洗餐具?)
  
  3)I will go to supermarket to do some shopping this afternoon.(今天下午,我要去超市买点东西。)
  
  2.Sorting through their possessions, they cane up with some
  1,500 old, unwanted items-all sorts of things they wanted to get rid of.
  sort 通常做名词用,意思是“种类、类别”,如:
  
  1)What sort of iron did she buy this morning? (她今天上午买的哪一种熨斗?)
  
  2)I don't think he will be interested in this sort of book.(我想他不会对这一类书感兴趣。)
  
  3)He would find all sorts of excuses for his failure.(他会为自己的失败找寻各种借口。)
  在本句中sort用作动词,意思是“整理;分类”。Sort常用于短语sort out,但out也常可省略。
  
  1)He was alone in the post office sorting letters.(他独自一个在邮局里分拣信件。)
  
  2)Old John was sorting through a pile of old shoes.(老约翰正在整理一堆旧鞋。)
  
  3)The teacher asked Mary to sort out the bigger balls.(老师让玛丽把大一点的球拣回来。)
  
  4)I need to sort out my own problems first.(我需要先把我自己的问题解决。)
  come up with 这个短语我们在前面碰到过,意思是“提供,提出,想出”,在本句中该短语意为“产生,制造出”。
  
  1)We always count on Xian Li to come up with help of one kind or another.(我们总是可以指望小李提供这样或那样的帮助。)
  
  2)He came up with a good idea after 2 hours' of thinking.(经过两个小时的思考,他想出了一个好主意。)
  
  3)The company has come up with a new time-saving device. (这家公司已制造出一种新的省时装置。)
  get rid of 这个短语已在词汇部分做了讲解,请再看两个例句:
  
  1)It is not easy to get rid of a bad habit (去掉不良习惯不是一件容易的事)
  
  2)I want to get rid of this old bike and buy a new one.(我想卖掉这辆旧自行车,买辆新的。)
  
  3.The Ericssons needn't have worried
  表示姓名的专有名词变成复数,前面加定冠词the,指此姓的一家人,或夫妇俩,如:
  
  1)The Blacks were in F
