第六部 第十三課: snap , spaced out

 
  • 今天 Larry 和李華一起打保齡球,李華會學到兩個常用語: snapspaced out.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, you look nervous. Have you ever bowled before?
  • No, 我啊從來沒打過保齡球,所以當然緊張啦!
  • Don't worry, Li Hua, bowling is a snap. You'll figure it out in no time.
  • 你說 bowling 是什麼 - a snap?疑? To snap 不是要對別人嚷嚷、說話態度很凶的意思嗎?
  • That's right. "To snap at someone" is to speak rudely, but snap can also be used as a noun. If we say something is a "snap" that means it's very easy and can be learned quickly.
  • 哦~,我懂了, snap 用做動詞的時候呢,意思就是對人很凶,不過你剛才說的 snap 是用做名詞.要是我們說 something is a snap,那意思啊就是很容易就能學會的事.疑?那不就是我們中文裡所說的 「小菜一碟」 嗎?
  • Yes. So, now you'll understand what I meant by saying "bowling is a snap!"
  • 嗯!你是說 「保齡球容易學」,可是,我怎麼覺得挺難的呢?
  • Well, if you think bowling is hard, then what do you think is a snap?
  • 嗯~,讓我想想…,哎,騎自行車挺容易的,我啊,一個下午就學會了。
  • So you think riding a bike is a snap -- I agree, once you learn how to ride a bike, it's a snap. Hey, Li Hua, you know what else is a snap?
  • No, what else?
  • Beating you at bowling is a snap. Look, I'm 50 points ahead of you.
  • 這太不公平了!我以前啊,從來就沒有打過保齡球,你可能已經打過幾百次了!我能打到那麼多的 pins 就算不錯了。
  • You're right, Li Hua. It's not fair. Here, I'll teach you. Then you'll see what a snap it is.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Li Hua, did you enjoy bowling?
  • Yes, 保齡球啊挺好玩的,可是啊也挺累人的。
  • Yeah, I agree. I feel kind of spaced out.
  • 啊?你說你覺得怎麼樣了啊? spaced out? Larry, 你是身體不舒服嗎?
  • No, no. Feeling spaced out means feeling kind of detached and unfocused. I sometimes feel spaced out when I'm tired.
  • 喲,我懂了, feeling spaced out 意思就是呢 「覺得昏昏沉沉的、注意力難以集中」.就是啊,一個人啊太累的時候,是會感到昏昏沉沉,周圍發生什麼事啊都不知道。
  • Yeah, but sometimes it might be for no reason. For instance, I might feel spaced out at class - I would be thinking about baseball, instead of listening to the teacher.
  • 你上課的時候還會想起棒球賽呀!哎喲,那你走神兒也走得太厲害了吧!
  • All right, Li Hua. Now don't tell me you've never felt spaced out yourself.
  • 我啊當然也有迷糊的時候啦,比如上星期,我心不在焉地去上課,結果走錯了教室。
  • Last week, I was really stressed over the exams. I was so spaced out that I forgot my father's birthday. I felt terrible.
  • 什麼啊?因為要考試,你緊張得連你爸爸的生日也忘記啦?那你爸爸肯定很生氣囉?
  • No, he knows me very well, bowling is a snap for me; but exams always make me very nervous.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華從 Larry 那兒學到兩個常用語: snap 用作名詞,意思是「輕而易舉的事」. spaced out 就是「昏昏沉沉、注意力不集中」。
