10.Spelling 拼写

A: You know, Ralph, since I started speaking English all the time my pronunciation's getting better and even the grammar's beginning to make some sense. But I don't think I'll ever be able to spell.
B: You're not alone there. I have trouble with spelling too. When I was in grade school, I learned which words were the most frequently misspelled, but I never did learn how to spell them.
A: Since it's so difficult, why is it so important to learn how to spell properly?
B: Because if you spell satisfactorily, you're considered educated. If you don't, you're not.

Grade school (美国的)小学

A:拉尔夫,你知道,自从我开始所有时间都讲英语以来,我的发音有了进步,而且语法也开始理顺了。不过我不认为我能把字拼出来。
B:不是你一个人如此。我在拼音方面也有困难。当我上小学的时候,我知道哪些词是经常拼错的,但我没有学会如何拼这些词。
A:既然这么难,为什么学会准确拼音又如此重要呢?
B:因为如果你能准确无误地拼音,人家就会把你看作受到教育的人。否则,在别人眼里你是个缺乏教育的人。
