心中的聖誕願望
對小孩而言,一年裡的十二月(December)是最重要的,為什麼呢?
因為期待已久的歡樂聖誕節(Christmas)終於就要到了!
哪ㄧ個小孩不愛掛滿(hang up)禮物的聖誕樹、唱聖誕歌曲、收到滿滿的聖誕祝福卡片和禮物呢?

特別是在平安夜裡興奮得睡不著覺,等待聖誕老公公(Santa Claus)裝進紅襪子的禮物!

不知道大家有看過「北極特快車」電影的精彩冒險(adventure)嗎?你是否也是不相信聖誕老人的小孩們嗎?還是心中仍存有一絲童心(childlike excitement)與夢想?


讓我們一起take on the Polar Express and Listen to the soundtrack and learn English!




When Christmas Comes to Town


I'm wishing on a star
And trying to believe
That even though it's far
He'll find me Christmas Eve

I guess that Santa's busy
Cause he's never come around
I think of him
When Christmas Comes to Town


The best time of the year
When everyone comes home
With all this Christmas cheer

It's hard to be alone

Putting up the Christmas tree
With friends who come around
It's so much fun When Christmas Comes to Town

Presents for the children
Wrapped in red and green
All the things I've heard about
But never really seen

No one will be sleeping on
The night of Christmas Eve
Hoping Santa's on his way


When Santa's sleigh bells ring
I listen all around

The herald angels sing
I never hear a sound

And all the dreams of children
Once lost will all be found
That's all I want
When Christmas Comes to Town


1. 在這一首歌裡,Children never see the present from Santa Claus and never here the ring from Santa’s sleigh (雪橇) bell, never頻率副詞指的是從未…,頻率副詞是用來表示與次數、頻率有關的副詞,由頻率高到低為always/usually/sometimes/seldom/never, 放在be動詞後和一般動詞前,如:I will always love you! 或是 I sometimes play with him after class.

2. 再來是when在句子裡扮演連接時間與條件,指的是:當…的時候、在什麼…期間,如:I got up early when I was a child. “when” 也是可以指如果、要是…,如:I will call you when I get there! 很實用吧!

3. 最後要看的是fun意思是歡樂、快樂,fun是不可數的名詞,要用 a lot of fun, 而祝福別人好好享受這個好時光,可以說Have fun! 或是 Have a good time! 接著補充的是make fun of somebody/something 指的是捉弄、戲弄別人,如:He always makes fun of his sister.

這一部感人的電影告訴我們找回原來的希望和夢想並不難!
但如果不相信夢想,夢想永遠不會實現!那你是否願意相信深藏在心中的渴望與理想並實現呢?
I believe that learning English well is one of your dreams in Christmas!
Trust yourself and keep learning!
