第十七部 第七課: primo , glued

 
  • Larry 有兩張歌劇的票,邀請李華一起去。李華今天要學兩個常用語,primoglued
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, I've got two primo tickets to the opera. Would you like to come with me?
  • 歌劇?好啊。不過Larry, 什麼是primo ticket ? Primo聽起來不太像英語,是外來語吧?
  • You are right, Li Hua. Primo is an Italian word that means "number one" or "first-class."
  • 噢,primo是意大利語,意思是最好的,最棒的。
  • When I said I had primo tickets to the opera, I meant I had very, very good seats.
  • 既然你有最好的票,那我們一定有primo seats, 最好的座位了!
  • Yes, we do have primo seats. The tickets are for two seats right in front of the center-stage.
  • 前排最中間,真是太好了,我們一定能看得特別清楚。對了,我們看的是哪一部歌劇啊?
  • It is Verdi's Aida. Since it is an opera in Italian, I guess it is appropriate to say it will be a "primo" experience.
  • 我聽說過,威爾第的《阿依達》是一部很有名的意大利歌劇,但是我從來沒看過。
  • Yes, Aida is a very famous opera, and I know you will enjoy it. I've also heard the tenor has a primo voice.
  • Larry, 這兩張primo tickets會不會很貴啊。
  • Actually, no. I got a primo deal on the tickets. My friend bought season tickets to the orchestra, but couldn't make this performance. He sold them to me for half price.
  • 原來是你朋友買的季票,但是正好不能去,所以半價賣給你。That is a primo deal!
  • And I was thinking before the opera, we could have dinner. I know a primo little Italian restaurant near the opera house.
  • 意大利飯,太棒了!我最喜歡吃意大利飯了。
  • I think you will find the food at this place is primo - Some of the best in New York City.
  • 現在只有一個問題,Larry. I don't have any primo clothes to wear! 週末先得去買一身正式點兒的衣服。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • (After the opera)
  • Wasn't the opera amazing! I was glued to my seat the whole time.
  • 什麼?讓我看看,你褲子上沒有膠水兒啊,你怎麼會一直粘在椅子上呢?
  • I don't actually have glue on my pants, Li Hua. When I said I was glued to my seat, I meant I was so fascinated by the opera I didn't want to get up.
  • 噢,我明白了,你是說歌劇太精彩了,你聽得全神貫注。確實沒錯,特別是那個男高音,唱得簡直太棒了。I was glued to my seat, too.
  • It reminds me of this lecture about China I went to not long ago. The professor who spoke was very entertaining and charismatic.
  • 你是說那個教授講得太吸引人了,大家都坐在椅子上一動不動,聽得聚精會神?
  • Actually, not only was I glued to my seat, I was glued to his every word.
  • 每個字?能讓你這樣的學生把他的每個字都聽進去,這個教授一定很棒。
  • He was really good, and he had a lot of interesting things to say about life in China today. What about you, Li Hua? What keeps you glued to your seat?
  • 我最近正在看一部韓劇《朱蒙》,劇情太吸引人了,我一集接一集地看,根本放不下。I am glued to the TV set for hours.
  • If you are glued to your television for hours, you have really become an American, Li Hua!
  • 你為什麼這麼說呀?
  • I think statistics show Americans on average are glued to their television sets for nineteen hours a week.
  • 我簡直不敢相信,美國人每星期要看十九個小時的電視,我可能連九個小時都看不了。跟看電視比起來,我更喜歡看書。
  • Are you reading anything good right now?
  • 我最近正在看一本暢銷的偵探小說。I have been glued to every page!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 primo, 意思是最棒的。另一個是 glued, 是指被深深吸引,全神貫注的意思。
