第九部 第三課: to level with someone , clueless

 
  • Larry 和李華正在乘公共汽車去公園去溜冰.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: to level with someoneclueless.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • I have to level with you, Li Hua. I'm not very fond of ice-skating. I haven't done it in years.
  • To "level with me?", Level 是「水平」的意思.你是說你溜冰的水平和我不一樣啊?疑!你又沒看過我溜冰,怎麼知道我的水平呢?
  • No, "to level with someone" is to be direct and honest.
  • 哦~, to level with someone,就是「向人誠實、坦白」的意思啊.嘿!那~,我也得和你老實說了,我啊根本不太會溜冰.我只是想去看看歷史課的同學 Jake,他說啊他今天會去公園溜冰,可是我又不想一個人去,所以 .....
  • Now, the truth comes out! Come on, level with me, do you have a crush on Jake?
  • 嗯~,我是挺喜歡他的.不過啊,我想和他多聊聊,看看我是不是真喜歡他。
  • Well, Li Hua, I have to level with you and say that you might not make the best impression on Jake if you're falling all of the time.
  • 對哎,我啊要是老摔倒,他看見了怎麼會對我有好印象呢!嗯!我還是少溜一點,站在一旁看別人溜吧!
  • Hey, that's not fair! You drag me ice skating and now you aren't going to ice skate?
  • 哎喲,對不起嘛!我把你拖來溜冰自己又不溜. To level with you,我來之前啊根本就沒想那麼多!
  • That's obvious. I think you might as well level with Jake and ask him to help you.
  • 對哎!我怎麼沒想到?我可以叫 Jake 教我溜冰啊!嗯~,可是 Larry,那你怎麼辦啊?
  • Then I'll just sit and watch while you and your new boyfriend skate around on the ice.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Li Hua, I think I'll skate after all, but I'm really clueless about ice-skating. How do I put these skates on?
  • 怎麼穿溜冰鞋啊!把鞋帶繫好就行了啦!疑?對了,你剛才說"clueless",那是什麼意思啊?
  • Okay. If someone is "clueless" it means that he or she has no idea what they are doing.
  • 哦~, clueless 就是什麼也不懂.我雖然會穿溜冰鞋,可是對溜冰啊,我也是一竅不通吶! I'm also clueless about ice-skating.
  • Great. This is the blind leading the blind. We're both more or less clueless. Do you see your friend Jake? Maybe he can help us.
  • 嗯~,我沒看到 Jake,也許 ... 他不來了。
  • Li Hua, is Jake really coming? If he is, what time is he supposed to come here?
  • 嗯…,我不知道哎。
  • You're not sure or you're clueless?
  • 哎喲!好啦好啦, to level with you,我就聽他說了一聲今天會來滑冰.我根本不知道他到底什麼時候來嘛!
  • Li Hua, what were you thinking?
  • Larry,對不起嘛!我很喜歡 Jake,可是,我不知道該怎麼接近他,怎麼樣進一步瞭解他。
  • Oh, I understand. Yeah, sometimes I'm clueless about girls, too. Everyone feels that way sometimes. Don't worry; I'll help you find an excuse to talk to Jake.
  • 真的嗎! Wow! Larry,你真好.有你幫忙啊,我就放心了.看樣子我們在這兒也沒別的事可做.那就一塊兒溜冰囉!來吧!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語,一個是: to level with someone,意思是「向人坦白說實話」.另一個常用語是: clueless,意思是「對某件事情什麼也不知道」。
