Language points

1. …looking after us was more than a full-time job.


这句话的主语是动名词短语looking after us。单个v-ing形式短语在句中作主语时,谓语动词要用单数。句中more than表示“不只是,多于”。例如:

He is more than a coach. He is a friend.


2. …what’s more, because I was a girl.


what’s more表示递进,“然而/还有…… ”的意思,独立使用,既可以放句首,也可以放句中,what’s more后面加逗号。 


You should remember it, and what’s more, you should get it right. 

3. Generally speaking, I think life is better today.


generally speaking表示“一般而言,总的说来”。in general也可以表达同样的意思。例如:

Generally speaking, we enjoyed the trip.


In general, women live longer than men.

1. more than

2. what’s more

3. generally speaking

4. I wasn’t sent to school because my family couldn’t afford it.
