Last night, my brother phoned me at a quarter to midnight. I was really tired, and all I really wanted to do was hang up and tell him to call me in the morning. He just continued to talk and told me he had a good piece of news for me. "I just met the most wonderful girl in the world," he said. "I'm going to ask her to marry me." When he said this, I sat up in the bed. I couldn't believe it. How could this happen? He couldn't get married first. It wasn't fair. "How long have you known this girl?" He was quiet for a moment and then he said, "I just met her two hours ago. She's perfect." Upon hearing that, I closed my eyes, knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

昨夜,我弟弟在晚上十一点四十五分的时分打电话给我。我十分疲倦,只想把电话挂上并通知他第二天早晨再打给我。他却持续不停地通知我有好音讯要说。他说:“我刚遇上了全世界最棒的女孩,我要娶她。”当他讲到这,我就从床上坐起来了。我几乎不敢相信。怎么会这样?他不能比我先成婚,这太不公平了。我问他:“你知道这女孩多久了?”他缄默沉静了好一会儿然后说:“我在两小时前刚知道她,她好完美。”一听到这句话,我便闭上了眼睛,心想他必定是喝了太多啤酒了吧!

a. 前面课文语法要点曾提及副词连词 as soon as 表 ''一……就……'',

例: As soon as I got home, it began to pour.

我一抵家门就开端下起滂沱大雨。

As soon as I heard the news, I rushed to the hospital.

我一听到这音讯便往医院飞奔而去。

上述第二例中,副词从句及主句的主语均为 I,此刻可将 As soon as 改以介词 Upon 或 On 替代,再删去相同的主语 I,之后的动词变成动名词hearing,即:

Upon hearing the news, I rushed to the hospital.

我一听到这音讯便往医院飞奔而去。

第一个例句 As soon as 之后的主语为 I,主句的主语为 it,两个主语不同,故不行运用 ''upon + 动名词'' 的结构替代 as soon as 引导的副词从句。

b. 本课最终一句:

Upon hearing that, I closed my eyes,knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

= As soon as I heard that, I closed my eyes, knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

= The minute I heard that, I closed my eyes, knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

= The moment I heard that, I closed my eyes, knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

= The instant I heard that, I closed my eyes, knowing that he must have drunk too much beer.

我一听这句话,就闭上眼睛,知道他啤酒必定喝多了。
