【课文讲解】
1、I have just received a letter from my brother, Tim.
同位语:一个名词(或短语等)与另一个名词(或短语)并列而作为其说明或限定成分时称为同位语。同位语与它所补充说明的成分之间用逗号隔开。
在译成汉语时,同位语或者插入主句中,或者另译为一句,很少像英语中那样用逗号隔开。
This is John, one of my best friends. 这位是约翰。他是我最好的朋友之一。
Mrs. Smith, my neighbore, has never been abroad. 我的邻居史密斯夫人从来没有出过国。

2、He has been there for six months.
one month[];two months[] 注重读音 将//省略

work at 上班

a number of后面一定要加可数名词复数;通常number前有great,large,good,small,certain等形容词,数量大小也随之改变。a great number of 类似于, 约等于a lot of;
