  • 参考答案:The Importance of Good Health
       In the picture, a fat patient is advised by the doctor to spend more time outside with his dog and teach his log how to throw a stick for him to chase. The ironic statement reveals a serious problem with many people: nowadays the importance of good health is much overlooked. 
        A healthy body and mind ensures people a happy life. There are several ways that people can follow. In the first place, regular exercises are of great help in keeping people fit. Both indoors and outdoors exercises are welcome and people will be able to build a strong body over a period of time. Secondly, people should keep a balanced diet, in which meat, vegetables and fruits should be properly taken. Last but not least, people can take up some hobbies in order to keep a good mood. Mental health has been regarded as important as the physical one. 
        It is never too late to realize how greatly good health can influence people's life. Fame and wealth will account for nothing when health is the cost. 
  • 解题思路:1.The ironic statement reveals a serious problem with many people:nowadays the importance of good health is much overlooked. 
    本句采用了漫画作文的一个常用句式,即the statement/picture reveals that …用以揭示漫画的寓意,意为“这句话,这幅图揭示了……”,这个句式也往往是这类作文论点所在。 
    2.There are several ways that people can follow.In the first place,…Secondly,…Last but not least… 
    条理清晰地对如何保持身心健康提出了切实有效的建议。 
    3.It is never too late to realize how greatly good health can influence people’s life. 
    本句中采用了it is never too late to do sth.的句式,意为 “再……也不迟”,强调做某事的重要性,又如lt’s never too old to learn活到老.学到老。 
    4.Fame and wealth will account for nothing when health is the cost. 
    本句中的一个关键表达是account for nothing
    ,这是一个非常地道的英文表达,意为 “将一无是处,会毫无用处”,account for本义是“占……,为……负责”的含义, 用在此处强调了健康的重要性。
