Be a Volunteer ----Experience of a Volunteer at the Sydney Olympics :  Be a Volunteer ----Experience of a Volunteer at the Sydney Olympics The Sydney Olympics offered me an opportunity to learn more about staging a major multi-sport event and this knowledge, I felt, would stand me in good stead as I developed the media services that would be needed for our Salt Lake City Winter Games in 2002.

Slide5:  stand sb in good stead 使某人处于有利地位 Hard working will stand you in good stead in the exam. I felt this knowledge would help me develop the media services for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in the Salt Lake City. 我觉得这一知识对我十分有益,因为我所提供的媒体服务也将是我们承办2002年盐湖城冬奥会所需要的. Slide6:  I also decided that working as a volunteer would give me a greater understanding of a whole range of issues, which is why I joined the ranks of those working in the front line. 同时,我认为,志愿者的工作能加深我对各种事物的全面理解,这就是我参加第一线工作的原因。 Slide7:  range: n. a connected line of mountains ,hills, etc.; the distance that a gun or missile can cover; a set of different objects of the same kind. 山丘连贯而成的脉,排,行;成套或成系列的东西,种类,导弹的射程 eg.

Slide14:  As a woman volunteer, I am not usually keen on uniforms, but from the moment I put on my Sydney volunteer’s uniform I felt I was part of something important ,something big that could well be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
