第十四部 第十二課: freebie , megabucks

 
  • Larry 剛才在銀行裡開了一個帳戶。他一走出銀行的門納就遇到了李華。今天李華會學到兩個常用語:freebiemegabucks
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hi there, Li Hua! You should open a savings account today. Look at the freebie I got at the bank.
  • Freebie?你手上拿的好像是個計算機喔。
  • You are right, Li Hua. It's a calculator and you know, it's free. And that's what makes it a freebie!
  • Free?你說,只要開個帳戶就可以得到一個免費的計算機啊。所以免費送的東西就是 freebie。這真的是送給你的啊?
  • Yes, it was a special promotion. I love getting freebies. And a calculator is a good freebie.
  • 哦~,原來是銀行在開展特別的推銷活動,給開帳戶的人送一份禮物。計算機是有用的東西耶。不過啊,凡是免費的我都喜歡。
  • Banks often give away candy as freebie or a pen with the bank logo. But a calculator is something I will really use. That makes it a good freebie.
  • 是啊,送我一支筆,那也有用。送我糖啊我才不要呢!在所有的免費禮品裡面啊我最喜歡香水了。
  • It is a good way to try expensive perfumes before spending the money. I guess.
  • 對啊!買一瓶香水很貴的。送我一瓶小小的香水,要是喜歡我下回就可以去買,那不喜歡就算囉。這樣啊就不會浪費錢。耶,Larry,還有哪裡我們可以得到免費商品啊?
  • Well, book stores often give away freebie bookmarks. But, I think my favorite freebie is food!
  • 書店給的書籤啊,那沒什麼吸引力。耶!我也很喜歡那超市裏啊為了推銷,提供的那些免費食品,什麼麵包啊,蛋糕啊,肚子餓的時候啊可好了!
  • Speaking of freebie food, here is a grocery store across the street. Let's go in and see if they have any freebies.
  • 馬路對面的超市有免費食品啊?那還等什麼?快走啊!
  • (Sound of door opening, grocery store sounds)
  • Let's go to the freezer compartments. There is usually a lady giving out freebie samples of pizza.
  • 我看見了,後面是有一個女服務員在送比薩餅呢。Larry,你可真行耶!哪裡有 freebie 你都知道。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Say, Li Hua, would you like to win megabucks?
  • Megabucks?Mega,這個意思是大,那 buck 是指美元。如果我沒猜錯的話,megabucks 意思就是很多錢囉。
  • Wow, Li Hua. Your English is getting really good. That's right, megabucks is a lot of money.
  • Larry, 我當然想贏 megabucks 啦。誰不想發財啊?問題是要怎麼樣才能得到那麼多錢啊?
  • Well, we can buy a lottery ticket at the front of the grocery store. Who knows, maybe we'll win megabucks.
  • 你要到前面去買一張彩票啊?我才不信我們會贏 megabucks 呢!不過,Larry,要是我們贏了,那會有多少錢啊?
  • If all six of the numbers on our ticket match the winning numbers, we will win 5 million dollars.
  • 要真的能贏五百萬,那該多好啊!我們就不用再打工了。可是啊,你要六個數字全和彩票一樣才能贏,那中獎的機率不會很高吧?
  • It really isn't. We would have to spend megabucks buying lottery tickets to even have a small chance of winning.
  • 我就知道嘛,這種機會啊是很小的。即使花好多錢買很多彩票,我們也不見得會贏。與其這麼毫無希望地等著中彩票,還不如我們自己去賺大錢呢。
  • You mean go to work? I don't know about you, Li Hua, but I'm not being paid megabucks.
  • 我知道你工資不高,我的工資也很低啊。不過啊如果我們努力工作的話,說不定哪一天我們會發財的。
  • You mean like Bill Gates of Microsoft? He's certainly made megabucks.
  • 是啊,所以囉,微軟的 Bill Gates,他把很多錢都捐給了慈善事業呢。
  • I'm not sure I'll be making megabucks -- so for now I'll just keep living off of freebies in the grocery store. Want some more pizza?
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
