一.本课要点及示例

在这一课里, 我们要学习几个由动词和介词构成的常用语, 比方 "竞选" run for, r-u-n f-o-r, run for, "依赖" depend on, d-e-p-e-n-d o-n, depend on, "参预" take part in, t-a-k-e p-a-r-t i-n, take part in 等等. 我们也要学习许多跟选举有关系的词汇.

现在我们先来听今天这一课的对话, 内容是说亨利跟同事南希谈起竞选话动 的事情. 请你注意听两位英文老师的发音和语调.

F: Are you going to vote today, Henry?

M: I don't think so. There aren't any candidates I'm interested in.

F: Haven't you kept up on the issues?

M: I've seen the ads on TV, but I'm not up on what's going on.

F: You should be, you know. This is an important election. And a friend of mine is running for office.

M: That's why you've been bringing in all the campaign buttons.

F: Yes, Joe Brown is a really good candidate. He has taken part in a lot of community activities and he knows what needs to be done.

M: And you would vote for him even if you weren't friends, right?

F: Right!

现在我们来听老师用慢速度把整段对话念一遍.

F: Are you going to vote today, Henry?

M: I don't think so. There aren't any candidates I'm interested in.

F: Haven't you kept up on the issues?

M: I've seen the ads on TV, but I'm not up on what's going on.

F: You should be, you know. This is an important election. And a friend of mine is running for office.

M: That's why you've been bringing in all the campaign buttons.

F: Yes, Joe Brown is a really good candidate. He has taken part in a lot of community activities and he knows what needs to be done.

M: And you would vote for him even if you weren't friends, right?

F: Right!

现在老师把对话里包含了我们今天要学的常用语的句子挑出来, 再念一遍给 你听.

M: There aren't any candidates I'm interested in.

F: Haven't you kept up on the issues?

M: I'm not up on what's going on.

二.RUN FOR

听完了对话, 现在我们来练习对话里包含的常用语. 首先我们学习怎么用 run for 作句子. 比方有一句话: "有些律师在竞选总统." 这句话英文可以这样说:

下面我们作一组代换练习,学学这种说法. 在这一组练习里你可以学习到其他 公职的名称, 比方市政会, 郡委会等等.现在我们开始作练习. 请你在学生作练 习的时候也一起作.

三.DEPEND ON

刚才我们作的几组练习都是有关竞选的事情. 下面我们作一组代换练习, 看看 在美国参加竞选的人必须依赖谁的帮助才能够当选. 练习的作法是老师念一 个句子, 比方: "候选人依赖竞选委员会主管人员来赢得选举." The candidates depend on their campaign managers to win the election. 你跟着重复一遍, 接着 老师念出一些助选人员的名称, 比方 "竞选顾问" campaign advisors, "演讲稿 撰写人" speech writers, "竞选工作人员" campaign staff. "支持者" supporters 等等, 请你把你听到的代换到原来的句子里. 每作完一句就请你听老师念正确 答案.

下面我们作一组代换练习, 一方面学习 to be interested in 的用法, 一方面学一 学候选人所感兴趣的政治问题,比方 "争取女权" getting equal rights for women.

"对抗贪污" fighting corruption. "平衡政府预算" balancing government budget, "削减联邦政府规模"cutting the size of the federal government, "改善教育计划" improving educational programs 等等. 现在我们开始练习.

九.听短文回答问题

今天我们要听的文章内容是说美国的选举制度, 说到怎么样从事竞选活动.文 章里的词汇都是我们已经练习过的.

现在请你注意听.

Top officials in city, state and federal governments are elected to office by the people.

They run for office every two or four years and elections are held the first week of November. People who run for elections are called politicians. Many of them are lawyers.

Successful politicians are often famous and important people in their communities.

Young lawyers who are interested in politics often join political clubs when they graduate from law school. As club members, they help older politicians get elected. When they have had enough experience and support, they run for office themselves. Before elections, political candidates are very busy. They have frequent meetings with their supporters. But most of their time is spent campaigning, shaking hands and making speeches to the public.

There are different groups of voters that politicians try to win support from. Most large cities have black and Spanish speaking communities who elect powerful politicians.

Some politicians appeal to businessmen while others appeal to laborers. Many politicians run for office by taking sides on important issues such as balancing government budget, getting equal rights for women, fighting corruption and creating job opportunities.

Once politicians win elections, their futures depend on how well they do their jobs, and how well the people hear of the work they are doing.

现在老师把今天测验的三个问题先念一遍给你听.

第一个问题是:

M: How often are elections held in the United States?

第二个问题是:

M: What do political candidates do to get elected?

第三个问题是:

M: What are some of the important political issues?

现在我们听老师用慢速度再把文章念一遍.

Top officials in city, state and federal governments are elected to office by the people.

They run for office every two or four years and elections are held the first week of November. People who run for elections are called politicians. Many of them are lawyers.

Successful politicians are often famous and important people in their communities.
