1. 听说
“听说” means something that the person speaking has not seen or heard himself, and has instead received or heard this information from others.
例如(for example):
 I heard his parents had divorced for a long time. 
 I heard there will be an exam next time and I haven’t prepared for it. 

2. A和B一起
“A和B一起” means A and B do something together.
例如(for example):
① 我们班明天和他们班一起去旅游。
What a pity! I missed yesterday’s match again.
② 我非常想和你一起去,但是今天确实太忙了。
I really want to go with you tomorrow, but I am very busy today.

3. 电灯泡
“电灯泡” has two meanings, one refers to a light and the other refers to being a third wheel.
例如 (for example):
① 这个电灯泡坏了,你去买个新的吧。
This light bulb is broken; could you go to buy a new one?
② 他们两个人一起去旅游,你可不能跟着做电灯泡。
They are going to travel together, so you better not go with them and end up the third wheel.
