  6. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Background Information Pound 英镑 英国虽然是欧盟的成员国,但尚未加入欧元区,故仍然使用英镑。 表示英镑的符号是£。 1英镑≈10元。 TEXT A

  7. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation Do you know anyone who has a lot of money but lives like a poor person? What do you think of this way of life? TEXT A

  8. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation WILL POWER 1None of us had any idea what was going to happen when we arrived at the lawyer’s office. Dad had died two months earlier in his bed in the same two-bedroom house where we’d grown up. Apart from the house, we didn’t expect Dad to leave anything of value.

  9. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation 2Dad was an insurancesalesman and we assumed he wasn’t successful because we could never afford a new toy and we always wore second-hand clothes. Dad used to find bits of wood and turn them into toy boats and dolls. Mum taught us to make and repair clothes. They had funny little sayings that they’d repeat whenever we complained about things: “Money’s silver, but a needle and thread is gold!”“Never throw away what you can repair.” We laughed, but having so little money was often annoying.

  10. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation 3 So we walked into the lawyer’s office and sat down. The lawyer started reading. I was hardly paying attention, really, but then the numbers seemed to continue without end. “Wait, I’m sorry,” I said. “How much did you say he had?” The lawyer smiled, “Two million, seven hundred and eighty-one thousand, six hundred and fifty three pounds and eighteen pence.” We didn’t know what to say! Nearly three million pounds! How? Why? We had so many questions, so many feelings.

  11. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation 4The lawyer continued reading. It seemed Dad had actuallyearned quite a good salary, but he just preferred to save it. And he had been good at investing money too. Of the 2.7 million pounds he was leaving, he had decided to give two million to a charity that looked after teenagers with problems. The rest was divided between me and my sisters.

  12. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation 5For a moment, I felt deeply annoyed. Why had we lived like poor people? Why was he giving the money to other children? But then I thought, it’s stupid to think like that. I had a happy childhood and I’m very happy now. I remembered my parents reading us books they’d borrowed from the library and the hours we played cards together. It was fantastic what my parents had done. The love we had was far more important than money, but now maybe the money they saved can bring some love to others.

  13. Unit 8 Money and Banks Text A Translation 6The only problem I have now is what to do with a quarter of a million pounds – when I honestly don’t really need anything!
