    你應該已經知道「wealthy (富有的)」這個字了。

  • That's another one you can use.

    你也可以用 wealthy。

  • Number six: very scared.

    所以仔細聽我怎麼說這些句子,並注意我將重音放在哪裡。

  • And also pay attention to how I connect the words together.

    也要留意我怎麼把字連在一起。

  • Number one: I heard a fascinating story.

    第一個:我聽到一個很讓人著迷的故事。

    你有沒有注意到我將重音放在「transparent」這個字上。

  • And you noticed I connect "the" with the letter "i" of impoverished because it begins with the vowel.

    有沒有發現我將「the」和 impoverished 的「i」連在一起了?因為 impoverished 的字首是母音。

  • So we don't say "the" impoverished, we say "the" impoverished.

    所以我們不說「the」impoverished,而是「the」impoverished。

  • Listen again: We drove through the impoverished neighborhood.

    再聽一次:我們駛過貧民區。

  • Number five: This is a prosperous city.

    第五個:這是座富裕的城市。

  • If you notice I connected "this is a", those are linked together and then "prosperous city."

    你有發現我把「this is a」連在一起嗎?接下來還有「prosperous city」。

  • We combined those two sounds because they sound the same, and we change it into only one sound.

    會將這兩個字連在一起是因為 prosperous 的字尾和 city 的字首發音相同,所以就只要發一個聲音就好。

  • This is a prosperous city.

    這是座富裕的城市。

  • Number six: Some people are petrified of snakes.

    第六個:有些人會被蛇嚇壞。

  • We connect the "m "to the "o."

    將「m」和「o」連在一起。

  • The storm on the ocean, and we say "the" ocean, not "the" ocean.

    海上的暴風雨,我們說「the」ocean,不是「the」ocean。
