1.“be able to”的意思是“能够”，和“can”的意思非常相近。两者的区别之一就是“can”只有现在式和过去式两种形式，要表示将来时或完成时则需要用“be able to”代替。
2.“be delighted to do sth.”表示“很高兴做某事，做某事很开心”，例如：Sam will be delighted to see you.(山姆见到你会很开心的。)I'd be absolutely delighted to come.(能来我当然非常开心了。)
3.“over”在这里意为“在…期间”，例如：Will you be at home over the summer vacation?(暑假的时候你能在家吗?)Over a period of ten years he stole a million pounds from the company.(十年间，他从公司偷了一百万英镑。)Can we talk about this over dinner?(我们可以在吃饭的时候谈论这件事吗?)
