1 Hi David,
What a great idea! I really like Ms. Steen
a lot. She helped me to improve my English
so much. I’m sad to see her go, and this party
is the best way to say “Thank you and
goodbye.” I can help to buy some of the food
and drinks. I can help to bring MS. Steen
to the party. I already have a great idea
about how to do that.
He Wei
Thanks so much for planning this. I’d love
to come to the party, but I’m not available.
My family is taking a trip to Wuhan at the
end of this month to visit my aunt and uncle.
However, I’d still be glad to help out with any
of the party preparations, like planning the
games. Let me know if you need my help.
2 Dear classmates,
As I’m sure you know by now, our favorite
teacher, Ms. Steen, is leaving soon to go back
to the US. We’re very sad that she’s leaving
because she is a fun teacher. To show how
much we’re going to miss her, let’s have a
surprise party for her next Friday the 28th!
Can you come to the party? If so, can you
help with any of these things?
Please tell me by this Friday.
1) Buy food and drinks.
2) Think of games to play.
3) Prepare things we need for the games (glue,
paper, pen,…).
4) Bring Ms. Steen to the play without telling so
that she can be surprised.
I look forward to hearing from you all.

(3) invitation to sw /to do sth.

2. I look forward to hearing from you all.
look forward to 是一个固定搭配,表示“期待
期盼”, 其中to 是介词,因此后面如果使用动
词,要试用其-ing 形式。又如:
I look forward to your reply.
I’m really looking forward to seeing my little
grandson again.
3. Hope you can make it!
此句中的make it 是个独立地表达方式,表示
事,可译为“ 成功;胜利”, 但有时也要视
语 境及上下文灵活进行翻译,此处便是如此。
e.g. If we run, we should make it.
Though it was difficult, they still made it.
4. Please reply in writing to this invitation by
Friday, December 20th.
1)replying in writing 表示“ 以书面的形式
进行回复”。其中reply相当于 answer,但要
示方式,相当于汉语“ 用……方式(形式)”
引入宾语内容,构成 reply to … 的结构。如:
Did you reply to these letter?
3)在此句中,介词by 译为“ 截止……; …..之
前到……为止”。介词before 也有“……之前
而 by 则包括。
e.g. You should get your homework ready by
Friday. Remember: Friday is the last day!
can you come and meet me before Friday?
I’ll be away early Friday morning.
