  • 李華到美國來唸書還不到一年,紐約有好多地方她還沒去過。今天 Michael 帶李華到一個夜總會去玩,李華有點緊張,但是她會學到兩個常用語:uptightto get it
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey Li Hua, why are you sitting over here next to the bar? Come on and dance?
  • 啊?你說~我為什麼坐在這兒,不去跳舞啊?我...,我有點累哎。
  • Oh! come on! Don't be so uptight! Everyone is having a good time except for you.
  • 啊?你說除了我,每個人都很高興啊?你叫我不要什麼啊?什麼是 uptight?
  • I said, don't be uptight. Uptight means tense, irritable, or unable to relax.
  • 哦~,Uptight 就是緊張、顯得煩躁、不能放鬆。疑?那 Uptight 這個詞是怎麼拼的呢?
  • Uptight, u-p-t-i-g-h-t. You really are uptight! We're here at a dance club, and you're still trying to learn English!
  • 哎喲!在夜總會問你一個英文字,你就說我情緒緊張呀?我聽不懂問你,這還不行嗎?
  • Hmph. You're never this uptight when you are with your Chinese friends. You're never afraid to sing karaoke, Oh! even it sounds so bad!
  • 嘿-,跟中國朋友在一起我當然不緊張啊,我跟他們都很熟嘛。我知道我唱卡拉OK 唱得很難聽,但是我也不怕啊。
  • Hmm! Sometimes if I feel a bit uptight, I have a few beers. That helps me relax.
  • 哎,Michael 啊,你得小心哎,不要在緊張的時候為了放鬆而喝酒,這樣啊,你會越喝越多的。
  • I don't always drink when I feel uptight. Just sometimes.
  • 要不是經常的話,那還可以,不過,我現在..,不想喝酒。
  • Oh, Stop being so uptight, have a drink. Come on, I'll buy you something.
  • 行行行,你讓我想一想...,嗯,我要一個 Jack and Coke.
  • Be right back!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • I don't get it, Li Hua. I thought You liked to dance.
  • 啊?你沒有什麼啊?Don't get 什麼啊?
  • I said "I don't get it". Don't - get- it. That means I don't understand.
  • 哦~,don't get it 就是不懂。疑?那要是我想學什麼,可是又弄不清楚、弄不懂,我就可以說:"I don't get it." 對不對?
  • That's right! Like my dog, Ralph. I tried to teach him to sit whenever I tell him to. But he still doesn't understand me. He doesn't get it.
  • 哎,等等,你要訓練你的狗,叫它坐哪裡就坐哪裡,它弄不懂你的要求,這也能說 He doesn't get it?
  • Yes. If I tell you a joke, and you understand it, you can say: "I get it."
  • 哦~,要是我懂你說的笑話,我可以說:"I get it." 可是, Michael, 你說的笑話,我大多數都聽不懂呀。
  • There you go again...you are always so uptight.
  • 聽不懂你的笑話也怪我緊張呀? Michael, you don't get it, 我根本就不緊張。
  • Wait, I get it! You're being uptight because Zhao Lifeng is dancing over there. Everyone says you like him!
  • 什麼啊!說我喜歡趙立封!他在那兒跟別人跳舞,所以我就緊張啊? Michael, 趙立封是我好朋友的男朋友,我要跟他跳舞啊,我好朋友會生氣的。
  • Whatever you say, Li Hua. But you still don't have to be so uptight. Come on, you can dance with me.
  • 好吧,我跟你跳舞,這樣啊,你就不會再說我 uptight 的啦。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語: to get it or don't get it,意思是「懂某件事情」,或者是「不懂某件事」;另一個是: uptight,也就是「一個人顯得很緊張」。
