第五部 第十一課: shades , to get turned down

 
  • Michael 和李華現在在商店裡買東西.李華會學到兩個常用語: shadesto get turned down.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 哎,Michael, 你在看什麼啊?
  • Hmm, I really need a new pair of sunglasses. I sat on the old ones and crushed them.
  • 唉!你也真是的,怎麼會坐在自己的太陽眼鏡上呢!
  • (trying on a pair of sunglasses) Li Hua, what do you think? Do I look cool in these shades?
  • 疑?你把太陽眼鏡叫做 shades?是 s-h-a-d-e 這個詞嗎?那不是 「樹蔭」 的意思嗎?
  • Shade used as plural - shades, is just another word for sunglasses. It makes sense because they shade your eyes from the sun.
  • 哦~,shade 用作複數,就可以指 「太陽眼鏡」.對喔,太陽眼鏡把陽光給擋住了.這麼說啊倒挺形象的. Yes, Michael, you look very "cool" in those "shades."
  • Thank you. Li Hua, You should try on this pair of shades. They would look pretty on you.
  • 好啊,我來試試.嗯,倒是真好看,喔,可惜太貴了,我可捨不得花這麼多錢。
  • Yes, those shades are pretty expensive. Maybe they'll go on sale. I have to pay for my shades now.
  • 對,我還是等它減價的時候再買吧.哎,那你決定買你這副了啊?可要小心哦,別再把你的 new shades 放在椅子上給坐壞了。
  • I will be careful. Hey, Li Hua, how about this pair of shades? They are light brown instead of black.
  • 哼嗯,這副淺棕色的墨鏡確實挺別緻的喔.不過,我不太喜歡這個顏色哎,我想我還是等下次挑一副黑色的 shades 吧!
  • Okay, I think we need to get back to school. Don't you have a class this afternoon?
  • 哎,就是喔,我下午有課,我們趕快回學校吧。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 哎,Michael, 你看,那邊走過來的不就是你喜歡的那個女孩兒嗎?你啊現在戴著新墨鏡,樣子好酷啊,還不趕快啊跟她說句話?
  • No, I don't really feel like getting turned down. I'm sure she has a boyfriend anyway.
  • 哎喲,你真是的!你怎麼能肯定她已經有男朋友了呢?你說什麼不想被 turned down?你是說,怕這個女孩的男朋友找你算帳,把你打翻在地呀?
  • No, no. "To get turned down" means to get rejected. I'm afraid of getting turned down means I'm afraid of being rejected.
  • 哦~,原來, to get turned down 就是 「遭到拒絕」 的意思,也就是說,你想和她交往,如果她不願意,那你就是被 turned down 了.你是怕遭到她的拒絕,讓你下不了台呀!
  • Exactly. Nobody likes to get turned down.
  • 我也知道,誰都不想被拒絕啊.可是,你怎麼能肯定這個女生就一定會 turn you down 呢?你不試一試,永遠也不知道她到底是不是真的會 turn you down 啊!
  • Hmm, You're right. My fear of getting turned down is making it difficult to find a girlfriend. I suppose I'll survive even if she turns me down. Maybe I'll ask her out to coffee next time I see her.
  • 就是啊,你老怕被拒絕,怎麼能找到女朋友嘛!而且,即使被 turned down 了,也沒什麼大不了的啊. Michael, 你啊要是戴著這副新買的墨鏡,我肯定她不會 turn you down。
  • Are you sure she won't turn me down if I wear these shades?
  • 我肯定啊,她不會拒絕你的.可是,她要是已經有男朋友了,那我就不知道你這副新買的 shades 有多大威力了。
  • Ok, I'll make sure to find out if she has a boyfriend before I ask her out.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到兩個常用語,一個是: shades,相當於 sunglasses,也就是「太陽眼鏡墨鏡」;另一個是: to get turned down,意思是「遭到拒絕」。
