第十八部 第一課: outdoorsy , artsy

 
  • Larry 和李華正在商量下個週末去哪裡玩兒。李華今天要學兩個常用語 outdoorsyartsy.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, do you remember how much fun we had camping in the woods? Wouldn't you like to do something outdoorsy again this weekend?
  • Do something outdoorsy? 你是說戶外活動吧。
  • That's right! But "doing something outdoorsy" doesn't just mean to do something outside, though. Playing basketball or badminton outside isn't really outdoorsy.
  • 在戶外打球都不算outdoorsy, 那什麼才算呢?
  • Well, outdoorsy activities - like fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and canoeing - are ones that you do in natural settings, such as in a forest or near a river.
  • 哦,我知道了,就是一定要到野外才行,在公園裡和運動場上還算不上是outdoorsy.
  • That's it. So - what do you say, do you want to do something outdoorsy this weekend, Li Hua?
  • 上次去宿營確實挺開心的,咱們這次幹點兒什麼別?
  • Well, you know me, Li Hua. I'm a very outdoorsy kind of guy. How about we go canoeing?
  • 划獨木舟啊。聽起來挺過癮的,可我有點兒怕。
  • Don't worry. I can teach you how to paddle a canoe. You don't have to be an outdoorsy person to learn how to do it.
  • 可是獨木舟那麼窄,翻了怎麼辦啊,我可不會游泳。有沒有不那麼危險的野外活動呢?
  • Oh, that is right. I forgot you can't swim very well. Okay...What other outdoorsy things might you like to do?
  • 有了!我們到紐約州的山裡去遠足吧!
  • Perfect. And I can borrow a backpack from one of my outdoorsy friends. That way we can bring food, water and other supplies we might need.
  • Okay. 那我要做些什麼準備呢?
  • In addition to a backpack, you are going to need a good pair of hiking boots. I know a place that specializes in all sorts of outdoorsy stuff. We can get the boots there.
  • 好,那你陪我去買。也許你能把我改造成一個喜歡野外活動的人呢!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • I don't think buying hiking boots will turn you into an outdoorsy person, Li Hua. I think you are really more of an artsy person.
  • Arsty...喜歡野外活動的人可以說outdoorsy, 那說一個人 arsty肯定是說她喜歡藝術嘍?
  • Exactly! "Artsy" people enjoy appreciating and making all kinds of art - painting, drama and music.
  • 那我就是個 arsty的人。我喜歡繪畫、音樂和裝飾。
  • You are definitely artsy, Li Hua. I've always been impressed with your calligraphy.
  • 哦,我小時候我學過很長時間的書法;我父母都喜歡藝術,對我學習繪畫和書法很支持。
  • My family isn't very artsy. My parents were always interested in sports and really encouraged me and my brother and sister to get involved in athletic activities.
  • 你姑姑呢?她看上去好像很arsty.
  • Oh, Aunt Jane? You are right, Li Hua, she is VERY artsy. Aunt Jane is artsy in almost every way.
  • 對呀,從她的服飾就能看得出來。
  • Yes, and not only are her clothes artsy, but her entire house is artsy, too. She loves to decorate her rooms in very interesting ways.
  • 我在中國有個朋友,也特別喜歡藝術,可是跟你姑姑不一樣。
  • How so?
  • 他穿得特別簡單,但是酷愛鋼琴,每天要花好幾個小時練琴。
  • I guess there are many different kinds of artsy people. What they have in common is their love of art.
  • 你呢,Larry, 要不跟我學書法吧,我保證把你變成一個喜歡藝術的人。
  • That's a generous offer, Li Hua. But I'm afraid there is a reason why I am an outdoorsy person and not an artsy person! I'll leave the calligraphy to you!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語.一個是 outdoorsy, 是喜歡野外活動的人. 另一個是 arsty, 是喜歡藝術的人
