Introduction: What This Course Is and How to Use It
1 Congratulations for downloading this app onto your mobile device!
2 With this course you now have the opportunity to speak English better than many people who spend years living in America, and perhaps even better than many Americans.
3 "Warren's English Chineseˮ is the Chinese edition of the "Now You're Fluentˮ language app, which is also available through Apple in English-Spanish and English-Arabic editions, with other languages and platforms to follow.
3 沃伦高阶美语 是Now You're Fluent语言App的中文版本。你也可在苹果应用商店下载英语-西班牙语版本及英语-阿拉伯语版本。其它语种和平台也将随后推出。
4 Now You're Fluent is unprecedented in its depth and comprehensiveness, so if you use this course properly, you will have a tremendous competitive advantage over others (in school, business, and life) who do not use this course.
4 沃伦高阶美语 的课程具备无与伦比的深度和广度，只要你合理使用本课程，相较没学过本课程的其他人（在学校、工作及日常生活中），你将获得极大的竞争优势。
5 Prior to now, only the very rich could afford to enroll in expensive language "immersion" courses overseas.
6 But now we have "leveled the playing field" by providing the functional equivalent of one full year of "immersion" for merely the cost of a meal at a restaurant.
7 Now You're Fluent is for the person who already has an elementary knowledge of basic grammar and basic vocabulary. From this base, we grow your knowledge from a "shrub" into a "forest," so that you will be able to express yourself in virtually all of the situations of life in the 21st century.
7 沃伦高阶美语 适合已经具备初级基础语法和词汇的人士。以此为基点，我们将你的知识由″灌木″拓展为″森林″，使你在21世纪几乎所有的生活场景中都能表达自如。
8 Now You're Fluent contains 365 lessons, one for every day of the calendar year.
8 沃伦高阶美语 包含365课，每天一课，覆盖整个日历年。
9 The lessons systematically walk you through the entire life of an average American – from birth through death and funeral – so you will learn how to express yourself fluently in every situation imaginable.
10 To get an idea of how comprehensive this course is, we urge you to scroll through the bilingual Table of Contents posted on the website (nowyourefluent.com).
11 Hereʼs all you have to do to make this course work for you:
12 When you have a few free minutes each day, just go to the lesson for whatever the calendar date is (or to any day/lesson you choose).
13 Don't worry if you haven't done the lesson for the previous day – just focus on whatever day it is today.
14 For each lesson, you will find a story comprised of six or seven sentences in both languages.
15 Just click back and forth as many times as you find necessary until you have mastered each sentence – or at least until you have learned one or two words in your second language.
16 As you read and listen to each sentence, try to say it out loud or to yourself.
17 There is no excuse for you not to memorize at least one sentence for each calendar day.
18 And don't worry if it seems difficult at first – as with all things in life, you will improve over time if you make a consistent effort.
19 Focus on the words that are bolded and colored in blue, orange, green, and maroon: these are the "Value-Added Expressions," i.e., the words that you never seem to learn no matter how long you have lived in a foreign country.
20 Some of the "Value-Added Expressions" are split up by other words that are not part of the Expression; in these instances, the colors will show you which words constitute one integral Expression.
21 Because of the color coding, in most instances you should not need a dictionary to figure out the meaning of any "Value-Added Expression." This is one of the benefits of learning with Now You're Fluent.
21 凭借颜色标记，你不需要查词典就能理解任何 ″增值表达″ 的释义。这也是使用 沃伦高阶美语 课程的一个优势。
22 Words in (parentheses) are not necessarily or always spoken; they are understood. In other words, you can use the expression with or without the words in parentheses.
23 Words in [brackets] indicate an alternative translation that is equally correct. In other words, in some of the sentences we provide you with two ways to say the same thing.
24 If you learn just two of the "Value-Added Expressions" for each day, you will make noticeable progress.
24 就算你每天只学两个 ″增值表达″，你也会取得明显的进步。
25 If the topic for a given day is not particularly interesting to you, just do one or two lines and don't worry about the rest, but at least do one sentence!
26 Please note that we are teaching you American English, the way it is really spoken by educated Americans.
27 We invite you to consult the Now You're Fluent website every few months for any updates pertaining to Your Target Languages.
27 我们邀你每隔几个月访问 沃伦高阶美语 的网站查看″你目标语言″的相关更新。
28 Eventually, as we produce this app/course in other languages, the underlying text for each lesson will be almost the same in every language (English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, etc.), so you will be able to use this program to perfect your knowledge of any combination of languages by simply downloading the matching apps in those languages.
29 We created this program because we realized that nothing like it ever existed before, and we wanted it for ourselves.
30 We hope you enjoy this course and benefit from it as much as we have!
