美语三级跳001B讲 - “电影”单元中级课程

  • 美国之音

Emily和Peter正在约会,俩人聊到了电影,还有平时喜欢的消遣。

Professor: Winnie, we already know that both of them like going to movies in the theaters. Now let's listen to them talking about other ways to watch movies.

P: Did you do anything fun over the weekend?

E: I didn't want to go out last weekend, so I decided to stay at home and watch a movie.

P: Why didn't you want to go out?

E: I was very tired after working all week. Sometimes on the weekend I don't have enough energy to go out to a movie theater.

P: Did you download a movie or rent it at the store?

E: I downloaded it so that I didn't have to remember to return it.

Professor: So, Winnie, besides going to the movie theater, what are the two other ways to watch movies that Emily and Peter talked about?

两个方法我都记下来了!一个是从商店里租电影看,另一个是直接从网上下载。

Professor: Right. And what's better about renting a movie by downloading it?

这个我有亲身体会,下载电影不用记得去还!这么做的确很方便!

Professor: I agree, Winnie! Now let's listen to Peter talking about the other activity he really likes.

P: Last weekend I didn't want to go out either, so I stayed at home and played video games by myself. It was really fun!

E: Oh yeah, that sounds pretty cool, I guess ...

P: Yeah, I'm really into video games. In fact, all my friends are on the Internet. I've never met any of them in the real world.

E: Oh really ... well you must be very popular on the Internet. But it's true that it's nice to do some things in the comfort of your own home.

不会吧?Peter的朋友都是玩线上游戏时认识的网友?在Emily眼中,这好像不能加分呦!

Professor: I think you're right, Winnie. Emily didn't sound very impressed by Peter's being "into" video games. By the way, saying you're "into" something is a casual way of saying you really like it.

哦,所以,如果我对政治特别感兴趣的话,就可以说"I'm really into politics"?

Professor: Exactly. I wonder if Emily is "into" guys who spend all their time playing video games. Let's listen and find out.

P: You're right. Watching movies at home is way cheaper than going to the theater, too. I like downloading movies too because it's easy and fast.

E: I agree. And it's very convenient.

P: Have you ever heard of a movie rental company called Netflix? They send the movies directly to your house in the mail.

E: Really? That's great! I'm going to try that next time.

P: Yeah, but I wish they delivered video games too. Then I would never leave my house!

Professor: Winnie, did you hear Peter say why he likes watching movies at home?

好像是他觉得在家看电影比去电影院便宜。可是,他说"way cheaper"是什么意思呢?

Professor: The word "way" can be slang for "very."

我明白了。前面加个way, w-a-y, 是为了加重语气。那我可以说 "Peter is way into video games"!

Professor: That's it!

P: So Emily, do you still want to see a movie together this weekend?

E: Well, what do you want to see? I don't think there are many good movies out right now.

P: Hmmm ... I know! We can go to a really bad sci-fi movie and sit in the back of the theater and make fun of it. What do you think?

E: Now that's a great plan. It's a date!

大功告成!虽然Peter沉迷于网络游戏,可Emily还是愿意继续跟他约会,两人准备去看最烂的sci-fi movie科幻片,然后一起嘲笑电影的粗制滥造!

Professor: That's right. When you say that a movie is "out," that means that it is playing in the theaters.

对啊!我特别想看布拉德皮特的新片,but it won't be out until next month!So, professor Bowman, do you think Emily and Peter's next date will go well?

Professor: For that, Winnie, we'll have to tune in next time and find out!
