第十六部 第四課: get-go , on board

 
  • Larry 告訴李華他想報名參加救災,幫助災民。李華今天會學到兩個常用語: get-goon board
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Li Hua,there was a news report about families whose homes were damaged in a flood and they are not far from where my parents live. I knew from the get-go that I wanted to go help these people.
  • 對,我今天早上聽到這條新聞,說有不少房屋被洪水沖垮了。你要去幫助救災那當然好咯。不過你剛才說 from the get-go I wanted to go help these people。From the get-go是什麼意思呀?
  • From the get-go means from the beginning. I knew from the beginning, from the get-go, that I wanted to do something to help out.
  • 原來from the get-go就是一開始的時候。 也就是,你一聽到這新聞就想去救災。我雖然沒有想到要去救災,不過我聽到這消息後就馬上為災民的遭遇感到難過。From the get-go, I felt sorry for those people .
  • From the get-go, I felt the same way. So, this afternoon I am going to go to the American Red Cross to volunteer.
  • 你今天下午就要去美國紅十字會去做義工呀?這太好了。
  • The Red Cross is a wonderful organization. In any disaster, they are always ready to help, ensuring that the victims have food, water, medicine and shelter from the get-go.
  • 可不是嘛。美國紅十字會是有名的,一有災情,他們一般都是首先趕到,向災民提供救濟。Larry,你到紅十字會打算作些什麼呢?
  • Well, my plan from the get-go has been to stop by the Red Cross and see what kind of help they need. Depending on what they need, I will take a couple days off work and drive to the town hit by the flood to help out.
  • 對,是要根據他們的需要。你還要向公司請假,開車到災區去? Larry. 我好佩服你。我從一認識你, from the get-go,就知道你是個好人。
  • Thanks, Li Hua. That is really nice of you to say. You have been a good friend from the get go, too.
  • 誰都喜歡和你這樣的人作朋友。Larry, 你去紅十字會之前,我們先去吃午飯,怎麼樣?
  • That would be good. Today I have been hungry from the get-go. Where do you want to go?
  • 你早就餓啦,那我們就在附近找個地方吧。你看馬路對面的這家pizza店怎麼樣?
  • Great! That place has been so popular from the get-go!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • (To waiter) I'll have two slices of cheese pizza please. So, Li Hua, I was wondering if I could convince you to get on board this volunteering effort.
  • Get on board? 你的意思是讓我也參加救災?
  • Yes, when I asked you to get on board, I meant would you join me and help out.
  • 我這兩天正好不用教課,所以跟你去一兩天沒問題。
  • That would be great! The people at the Red Cross will be so happy to have you on board.
  • 那我們怎麼去呢?
  • Well, I was thinking we would drive. I was wondering if you would be on board with the idea of renting a van for the trip.
  • 租個麵包車? 租車不是很貴嗎?
  • It is a little expensive. But don't worry, Li Hua, I will pay for renting the van. I'd rather have you on board to help out.
  • 那好啊, 如果你出錢,我沒意見。
  • And since we have a van, I am wondering if we can get anyone else on board. We will have room to take some other people.
  • 那也是,車裡還有好幾個空位呢,我的一些學生可能也願意去災區服務。
  • You should ask them, Li Hua, the more people we can get on board to help with the relief effort, the better.
  • Larry, 我們現在就去紅十字會報名吧。讓他們知道我們要參加救災, let them know we are on board.
  • Good idea, but I really want to finish this pizza first.
  • I am definitely on board with that! Let's eat!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 from the get-go,意思是從一開始。還有一個是 on board, 意思是贊成、願意參加
