The Czech Republic Wants to Change Its Name

2019-08-13 阅读数:32

Today we had a lesson about the topic " The Czech Republic Wants to Change Its Name" , why do the Czech want to change their country's name? I think the most important reason is that it's easily confused with the adjective meaming, so they want to change its name to "Czechia".

2、VOCABULARY:

erroneously - 错误,不正确; by mistake / in error

I erroneously thought that Beijing was near Hong Kong.

emblazon - 用纹章装饰,颂扬,盛饰;

The actreess's name was emblazoned across the front of the theatre.

Czech - 捷克/捷克的

brew - 调制; 酝酿; 沏(茶); 煮(咖啡);

Michael brew his own beer at home, but it doesn't taste very good.

term - 学期; 条款; 术语; 期限;

The correct term for people from the UK is 'British'

Britain,Great Britain和England都是指英国,其形容词是British和English。英国的全称叫:大不列颠及北爱尔兰联合王国,英文是The United Kingdom 0f Great Britain and Northern Ireland,其中的不列颠群岛(Great Britain)由 England,Wales和Scotland,由于England在英伦三岛中最大,所以常用它来表示英国。其实,在日常使用时还是用Britain或者Great Britain为好,尽管England比较简洁比较常用,尤其在英国本土的时候,尽量少用England,因为可能引起Wales人和Scotland人的不满。我们就可以听到这样的对话:A:Are you English? B:No, I'm Scotish.
