Exercises A 练习A

用正确的动词时态填空。

1. I am looking out of my window. I can see some children in the street. The children ______ (play) football. They always ______ (play) football in the street. Now a little boy ______ (kick) the ball. Another boy ______ (run) after him but he cannot catch him.

2. I carried my bags into the hall.

‘What you ______ (do)?’ my landlady asked.

‘I ______ (leave), Mrs. Lynch,’ I answered.

‘Why you ______ (leave)?’ she asked. ‘You have been here only a week.’

‘A week too long, Mrs. Lynch,’ I said. ‘There are too many rules in this house. My friends never ______ (come) to visit me. Dinner is always at seven o’clock, so I frequently ______ (go) to bed hungry. You don’t like noise, so I rarely ______ (listen) to the radio. The heating doesn’t work, so I always ______ (feel) cold. This is a terrible place for a man like me. Goodbye, Mrs. Lynch.’

解答:A. 1. are playing; play; is kicking; is running

2. ‘What are you doing?’; I’m leaving; ‘Why are you leaving?’; come; go; listen; feel

注解:本课的关键句型是now、often、和always,表示现在和经常发生的动作。表示现在发生的动作可以用时间副词now、still等,用现在进行时态。表示经常发生的动作,可用often,always,never等作时间状语,用一般现在时态:

I’m still having breakfast. (现在正在发生的动作)

It’s raining now. (正在进行的动作)

Do you always get up so late? (经常性的动作)

但是有时不用上述时间状语,通过上下文也能反映现在和经常发生的动作:

What are you doing?

I go shopping on Sundays.
