(may表示一种可能性,没有把握的推测)

译文
别那么肯定!
马丁:加里,今年你们打算去哪里度假?
加里:我们可能到国外去,但还必不能肯定。我妻子想到埃及去,我也想去那里。我们还拿不定主意。
马丁:你们乘船去,还是乘飞机去?
加里:我们可能乘船去。
马丁:这更便宜些,是吗?
加里:可能是便宜些,但花的时间长。
马丁:我肯定你们一定会玩的开心。
加里:别那么肯定。我们可能哪里也去不成。我妻子总是担心的太多。谁来照看狗啦,谁来看管房子啦,谁来照料花园啦,我们每年都碰到这类问题。最后,我们呆在家里照看一切。

上期阅读的短文(选自新概念英语辅导丛书)

How was your weekend?
On Monday morning, my classmates often ask me, “How was your weekend?” So I always need to fill in the form on Sunday evening. Then I can answer their questions.
My bedroom was dirty last week, but I had no time to clean it. So I did some cleaning on Saturday morning. After lunch my friends asked me to play football with them. I watched a comedy on TV that evening.
On Sunday morning I got up at seven and did some exercise in the garden. After breakfast I did some homework and read an interesting magazine. My grandpa lives in another house and I went to see him at two in the afternoon. He was happy to see me and gave me some fruit. I had supper with him. I ate some hamburgers with chicken and pepper onion in them and drank some soda. And then I said goodbye to him. I went to a movie. I went to bed at ten because I had to get up early on Monday morning. I think I spent a nice weekend.
