★ take (tomorrow) off「(明天)请假或休假」，I'm going to take next Tuesday off.的意思是「我下星期二打算休假。」如果是每星期三都休假的场合，可说成"I have Wednesdays off."这种场合动词常用have一词，休假的时间使用复数形。另外，也有"Wednesday is my day off."的说法。问人工作的时间时可说"What hours are you working?"「你的工作时间怎样？」回答时可用"Nine to five."「从九点到五点。」这样的说法。
★ hospitalize「住院」 cf. be in (the) hospital「住院」leave the hospital「出院」
★ in that case「既然如此」cf. in case「万一」In case you get lost, call me.「万一你迷路了，打电话给我。」
