    Lesson 8 The best and the worst 最好的和最差的

    课文内容:

    Joe Sanders has the most beautiful garden in our town. Nearly everybody enters for‘The Nicest Garden Competition’each year, but Joe wins every time. Bill Frith's garden is larger than Joe's. Bill works harder than Joe and grows more flowers and vegetables, but Joe's garden is more interesting. He has made neat paths and has built a wooden bridge over a pool. I like gardens too, but I do not like hard work. Every year I enter for the garden competition too, and I always win a little prize for the worst garden in the town!

    Notes on the text 课文注释

    1 Joe Sanders has the most beautiful garden in our town. 乔·桑德斯拥有我们镇上最漂亮的花园。在第1册的第107-112课中,我们讲到了英文中形容词和副词的比较级和最高级。本课的主要句型仍是形容词和副词的比较级和最高级。如果形容词或副词有两个以上音节,其比较级和最高级是在形容词或副词前加上more或most,如more interesting, the most beautiful。

    2 enter for, 报名参加(各种竞赛,考试等活动)

    3 more flowers and vegetables, 更多的花卉和蔬菜。英语中有些形容词或副词的比较级和最高级并不规则,如课文中的 good----better----best, bad----worse----worst, many----more----most。

    4 for the worst garden in the town 是介词短语作定语,修饰prize。

    参考译文

    乔·桑德斯拥有我们镇上最漂亮的花园。几乎每个人都参加每年举办的“最佳花园竞赛”,而每次都是乔获胜。比尔·弗里斯的花园比乔的花园大,他比乔也更为勤奋,种植的花卉和蔬菜也更多,但乔的花园更富有情趣。他修筑了一条条整洁的小路,并在一个池塘上架了一座小木桥。我也喜欢花园,但我却不愿意辛勤劳动。每年的花园竞赛我也参加,但总因是镇上最劣的花园而获得一个小奖!
