摘要: The things you collected may acquire the value beyond their true worth

Collecting things

We live and learn, together!


The way to put these into good use (如果你想充分利用,please follow):

Tips: 

1. 听(理解大意)->跟读3遍(找语感+理解)->尝试复述3遍(可以偷瞄)->再读一遍->尝试默写 (e.g. 的这些例句都是在英英字典上摘抄的原句,同样可记录和背诵)

2. 如果我提供中文翻译的句子,先尝试自己用口语形式叙述出来,然后对照,再重复步骤一;中翻英是极佳的练习方式;

3. 如果我没有提供中文翻译, 请尝试在英英词典,比如:朗文高阶词典,上查找,记录,这样你记忆会更深刻;

4. 如果用法不确定的,请及时告诉我,为你解答;

5. Share this with your friends, if you want.

1. People tend to amass possessions, sometimes without being aware of doing so. Indeed they have delightful surprise when they find something useful which they did not know they owned.

Those who never have to move house become indiscriminate collectors of what can only be described as clutter.

- amass

积累,收集

e.g. Darwin amassed evidence to support his theories.

indiscriminate

盲目的,不加选择的

clutter

杂乱的东西


2. They leave unwanted objects in drawers, cupboards and attics for years, in the belief that they may one day need just those very things.

- attics

阁楼

- in the belief that

相信...

e.g. Thieves broke into the building in the belief that there was expensive computers inside.


3. Things owned for a long time are full of associations with the past, perhaps with  relatives who are dead, and so they gradually acquire a value beyond their true worth.

- associations with sth/ sb

... 有关系

in association with sth/sb

e.g. Conserts sponsored by the council in association with local business.

- value beyond their true worth
