【语言点精讲】

1. What's the schedule today?今天的日程是怎么安排的?也可以说What is on the schedule today?schedule: 时间表,计划表,议事日程。

2. Ten o'clock, telephone FAO Schwarz about the new twin baby dolls.十点钟,给FAO施瓦茨公司打电话,谈双胞胎娃娃玩具问题。telephone sb.: 给某人打电话。telephone在这里用作动词。FAO Schwarz: 是纽约一家著名的玩具公司。twin baby dolls: 双胞胎娃娃玩具。

3. Eleven o'clock, approve the sketches for the toy spaceship.十一点,批准玩具太空船的草图。approve sth.: 批准,通过;同意。sketches: 素描图,草图。还有其他的一些词汇来表示不同的图。如drawing (用线条构成的图画),painting (色彩图,如油画),picture (泛指图画、肖像以及照片),portrait (肖像画),chart (图表),cartoon (卡通或漫画),blueprint (蓝图),design (设计图),photo (照片),snapshot (抓拍的照片,常是不很正式的),candid photo (趁人不备时偷拍的照片)。

5. Will do. 相当于Sure, I'll do it.(我会去办的,没问题。)这是表示同意做某事的口语说法。
