7. I live in Shijiazhuang, a city not far from
（1）far from a) 远离 b) 毫不；远非；一点也不
（2）away from & far (away) from , 两个短语都可以用来作表语，状语和后置定语。其中，其中away from用在表示具体距离的词后面时，意为“离……（多远）， be away from意为“离开”。 far (away) from 通常不和具体的距离的词连用，意为“离某地很远”。
The railway station is 7 miles far away from our school. (wrong, far should be omitted)
8. The teacher is a very enthusiastic woman called Ms. Shen.
called Ms. Shen 是过去分词短语作定语，与所修饰的词之间存在着逻辑上的被动关系，相当于定语从句who/that was called Ms. Shen。 如：
We visited the new library built three weeks ago.
The first textbooks written for teaching English as a foreign language came out in the 18th century.
Most of the artists invited to the party were from South Africa.
9. And we have fun. I don't think I will be bored in Ms. Shen's class!

=have (a lot of) fun
= have a wonderful time
=enjoy oneself 如：
The children were having a lot of fun with the building blocks.
You're sure to have some fun tonight.
They had a lot of fun chatting on the net.
fun是不可数名词，常用于be fun 结构中，相当于interesting。如
Seeing monkeys in the zoo is great fun.
What fun it is to play a game after work!
注: 此处的what fun不能用how funny代替，因为"funny"是“滑稽的，好笑的”的意思。
［拓展］for fun=in fun 开玩笑地
make fun of 嘲笑，取笑。如
I'm not saying such a serious thing for fun.
It's bad manners to make fun of the blind.
英语中有些动词，如think, believe, expect, suppose, feel, guess, imagine 等，当它们后面接一个具有否定意义的宾语从句时，通常要把主句的动词变为否定式，而宾语从句中的谓语动词用肯定形式。这种现象称为否定的转移。如：
We don't think there is anything interesting in your pictures.
I don't believe what he said is true.我认为他说的不是真话。
I don't suppose they will object to my suggestion.
I don't think it's going to rain tomorrow, is it?
You don't think I have made mistakes, do you?
10. In other words, there are three times as many girls as boys.
（1）in other words 意为“换句话”，在句中用作插入成分。如：
I'm not used to the way you speak to me. In other words, I don't want to continue our conversations.
①A + be+倍数 +as+ adj. +as+B
Asia is four times as large as Europe.
Asia is three times larger than Europe.
③A+be+倍数+the size/length/height/depth/width+ of+ B
Asia is four times the size of Europe.
注: time 表示倍数，一般只限于表示基数词在内的三倍或三倍以上，若表示两倍可用副词twice 或形容词double。 time 表示的倍数也可以用分数，百分数或某些表程度的副词替换。
This pencil is a quarter as long as that one.
Our room is 60％ the size of theirs. 我们房间的面积是他们房间面积的60%。
