3.详细解说
1.“behave oneself”的意思是“规矩点儿,注意举止”,一般用于长辈训斥小辈。
2.“what if"的意思是“若是…将会怎样”,例如:What if it rains when we cant get under shelter?(假若下起雨来,我们又没处避雨
可怎么办?)What if the rumour is true?(如果谣传真有其事呢?)
3.“push one's way in”的意思是“挤进去”。“push one's way”表示“挤着前进”。类似的表达还有:“elbow one's way”,表示“(用胳膊肘)挤着往前走”。
4.“be on pins and needles”是美语习语,可以解释为“be very nervous and unable to relax. especially because you are waiting
for something important”,意为“如坐针毡”。
5.“rest room”指“(公共场所内的)公用厕所,洗手间”,此外比较常用的还有“public toilets”。

4.文化洗礼
同是“地铁”,说法各异

地铁在城市交通体系中扮演着越来越重要的角色,线路纵横交错,如网眼般遍布于城市的各个角落,世界上的各大城市无不如此,但是对地铁的称呼却不尽相同。
