歡迎大家來到【大牛你英語】事件,聽說馬德里和義烏通了火車,不知道票價多少的說,文稿先給大家。

  

馬德里為啥跟義烏通了車?

Madrid has been the final destination for a train which has set the record for the longest train journey in history, 13,052 kilometers between the Chinese city of Yiwu and the Spanish capital.


The train departed from Yiwu in east China’s Zhejiang Provinceon November 18th and arrived in Madrid on December 9th.

It had 40 wagons, carrying 1,400 tons of cargo, consisting of stationary, craft productsand products for the Christmas market. The train will return to China filled with luxury Spanish produce such as cured ham, olive oil and wine.


The historic journey marks the opening of a regular two-way rail link between China and Spain.The railway will commence operations early next year.


Two major advantages ofrail travel are that it is much faster by rail than by boat, cutting the transportation time in half; and a train produces 60 percent less carbon dioxide pollution than a lorry making the same journey by road.



語言點與詞彙

final destination

n. 終點 如果旅途只有一個目的地,那destination就是“終點”的意思,無需final。如果不只一個目的地,那最後的一站才是final destination。


set the record for …

v. 創下… 紀錄 record之前可以加定語,以限制範圍。

如: set the world record for the number of cuss words in a movie (創下電影使用髒話次數的世界紀錄) 同理,可以是set the Asian record, set the Chinese record等等。


wagon

n. 原指四輪的運貨馬車,如今在英式英語中指鐵路貨車,在美式英語中指小手推車


consist of…

vi. 由…組成 consist of的誤用率特別高,它跟composed of的意思一樣,但本質區別在於前者不及物,不能用被動語態(即不能說be consisted of)。

例句:

The book consists of 16 chapters.

(全書共分16章。)

Our class is composed of 24 boys and 20 girls.

(我們班由24個男生和20個女生組成。)


cured ham

n. 腌制火腿


mark

vt. 標誌著… 該用法源自mark的名詞本義:標記、符號。作動詞時後面直接跟賓語,是及物動詞。

例句:

The signing of the contract marks the official ending of a laborious bargaining process.

(合同的簽署標誌著費力的商討過程正式結束。)


commence

v. 開始 可及物也可不及物,用法跟begin、start一樣

例句:

及物:The company has commenced a training course on how to effectively use WeChat.

(公司開始進行如何有效使用微信的培訓。)

不及物:The meeting is scheduled to commence at 2pm.

(會議定於下午兩點開始。)


carbon dioxide pollution

n. 二氧化碳污染
