《新概念英语》第二册第38课 Everything except the weather 唯独没有考虑到天气

【课文】

First listen and then answer the question. 
听录音,然后回答以下问题。 
Why did Harrison sell his house so quickly?

My old friend, Harrison, had lived in the Mediterranean for many years before he returned to England. He had often dreamed of retiring in England and had planned to settle down in the country. He had no sooner returned than he bought a house and went to live there. Almost immediately he began to complain about the weather, for even though it was still summer, it rained continually and it was often bitterly cold. After so many years of sunshine, Harrison got a shock. He acted as if he had never lived in England before. In the end, it was more than he could bear. He had hardly had time to settle down when he sold the house and left the country. The dream he had had for so many years ended there. Harrison had thought of everything except the weather.

【知识点讲解】  
1 He had no sooner returned than he bought a house and went to live there.
他刚一回到英国便买下了一幢房子住了进去。

no sooner……than……表示“一……就……”这个句型用来引导时间状语从句。主句里常用过去完成时,than后面的从句一般用过去式。

He had no sooner found a good job than he graduated from school.
他一毕业就找到了一份好工作。

2 Almost immediately he began to complain about the weather, for even though it was still summer, it rained continually and it was often bitterly cold.
因为即使那时仍为夏季,但雨总是下个不停,而且常常冷得厉害。

even though这一结构用来引出让步状语从句。

Even though you do not like it, you must do it.
即使你不喜欢这工作,你也得做。
