  From最常用的意思是“来自”,比如“我来自中国”就是用from。
  今天我们了解一些from相关的短语,一般用于句首,常用且实用。
  From that point on
  ?I started a rumor that the air fresheners were actually security cameras to catch whoever was throwing the wet toilet paper. I guess I must’ve told the right people, because from that point on the cafeteria bathroom has been quieter than the library.
  中文释义:我到处传谣说:空气清新机实际上安装了照相机,用来拍那些乱扔湿纸巾的人。我猜我一定是传对了人,因为从那时起,餐厅洗手间变得比图书馆还安静。

  ?The V.I.P. Lawn Service has a very strict policy when it comes to dog poop, which is that we won’t go anywhere near it. So from that point on, whenever I saw anything that looked suspicious, I would mow a ten-foot circle around it just to be safe.
  中文释义:提到狗粑粑,我们的VIP除草服务可是有非常严格的规定的:那就是我们决不能靠近狗粑粑。所以从那时起,无论何时我看到可疑的东西,为了安全起见,我都会绕着它割一个10英尺的圈。
  FROM THAT POINT ON:从那时起。
  小鸽鸽讲解:注意这里的point表示时间点。
  From + 时间 + on,表示:从某时起。
  如from then on,from now on分别表示:从那时起,从现在起。
  例子1: So from that point on there are a lot of gaps in our official family history.
  例子2: From that point on Mom was running the show.
  例子3: From that point on , he was one of my favorite people.
  From the way
  ?From the way Rowley was hyping his present, I thought he must have gotten me a big-screen TV or a motorcycle or something. But once again, I let my hopes get too high. Rowley got me a Big Wheel. I guess I would have thought this was a cool gift when I was in the third grade, but I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with one now.
  中文释义:从罗利自夸礼物的方式来看,我猜,他肯定是给我准备了一个大屏电视或者摩托车什么的。结果,再一次,我期望过高了。罗利给我买了一个小孩玩的滑轮车。如果我现在还是三年级,我会觉得这个礼物很酷,但是现在我实在不知道能拿这个礼物干啥。

  中文释义:罗德里克告诉妈妈和爸爸他需要开始在人类脊椎上做他的"零重力"效果实验了。从罗德里克吹牛的方式来看,你估计会觉得他的实验结果必定对人类作出突出贡献。
  FROM THE WAY:从。。。。的方式。
  小鸽鸽讲解:注意from the way是修饰紧随其后的从句的,真正的主句在从句后面。
  例子1: From the way some of the girls were giggling, I knew it wasn’t a good thing.
  例子2: From the way he acted when he got back, you’d think he lived there his whole life.
  例子3: From the way he was acting, I don’t think he’s ever been in trouble with his dad before.
  From what I can tell
  ?I am pretty sure I DIDN’T get the chicken pox from Rowley, though. I’ve seen him walking to school the past few days, and from what I can tell, he’s been wearing his mom’s makeup on his chin. So I think those red bumps might’ve have been pimples, just like Abigail’s.
  中文释义:尽管如此,我很肯定自己没被罗利传染上水痘。过去的几天,我已经发现他每天都是走路去学校。依我看,他是把他妈妈的化妆品抹在了下巴上。所以我估计他那些粉刺已经长熟了,就像阿比盖尔的那样。

  ?In the first few classes, the boys and girls were mixed together, but today Nurse Powell said she was gonna split us up. She sent the girls down to Mrs. Gordon’s room and then she put in a video for us boys to watch.
  From what I could tell, the video was at least thirty years old, so I’m sure Dad watched the same exact tape when he was my age。
  中文释义:最初几节课,男孩子们和女孩子们都混在一起上课,但是今天Powell护士说,她得把男女分开。她把女孩子们送到了Gordon夫人的屋子里,然后她就单独给男孩子们看一个视频。依我看,这个视频至少得有三十年了,所以我很确定,爸爸在我这个年纪的时候,跟我看的是完全一盘磁带。
  FROM WHAT I CAN TELL:依我看。
  小鸽鸽讲解:这里tell是“判断、断定”的意思,很常用。
  例子1: From what I can tell, it’s sort of like a big boy-girl slumber party.
  例子2: From what I can tell, you didn't do anything wrong.
  例子3: From what I can tell, you're still the thing he loves most in the world.
