15. It is more important for them to learn to think in the language than to know the meaning of every word.
不定式短语to learn to think in the language是句子的真正主语。it常常被用来代替不定式，在句子中充当形式主语，而把真正的主语移到句子后面去，这样使句子显得比较平稳。为了说明不定式表示的动作是谁做的，便在不定式前加for引起的短语。又如：
1） It is not at all difficult for him to understand the poem.
2） It is necessary for us to lend him a helping hand at this time.
more important than是形容词比较级形式，请翻译下面的句子：
1） 汤姆的年龄比玛丽大。（Tom is older than Mary.）

3） 我等了他一个多小时了。（I have been waiting for him for more than an hour.）
17. … if your language learning has been less than successful， you might do well to try some of the techniques outlined above.
less than用在形容词的前面是为了给所要表述的内容增加否定意味。又如：It would be less than fair to put all the blame on him.（把所有的责任都加在他身上是不太公平的。）
1） 父亲对他的成绩不太满意。（Father was less than satisfied with his performance.）
