流行美语第218课

  • 美国之音

夏天的时候,Larry和李华开车去海边玩。李华会学到两个常用语:jazzed和to catch some waves。

LL: Li Hua, I am really jazzed about this trip to the beach.

LH: Jazz不是爵士乐吗?我们去海边跟爵士乐有什么关系呢?

LL: You are right, but by Jazzed I mean to be really excited. I am really looking forward to spending some time at the beach today.

LH: 我知道了,Jazzed的意思是很兴奋。其实我也挺高兴的,不过我想知道有什么事情让你这么兴奋呢?

LL: There are three reasons. First, I am really jazzed to not be working! I have been working really hard on a project for my boss, and it is really nice to have some time off.

LH: 对,你为你老板的那个项目花了一个月的时间,现在完成了当然要放松一下喽。不用上班,这个理由很成立,另外两个理由呢?

LL: Second, I am very jazzed about trying out my new surf board and riding some waves.

LH: 你想试试你新买的冲浪板。那也合理,你那新的冲浪板真是很漂亮。要我是你,I would be very jazzed, too. 不过呢,我只想躲在阳伞下面看书。

LL: I don't see how you can get jazzed about reading a book, Li Hua.

LH: Oh, Larry, 你喜欢冲浪,我喜欢看书。各人的兴趣不同嘛。

LL: I guess that is what makes the world interesting! I get really jazzed about playing Frisbee at the beach, too.

LH: 在沙滩上扔飞盘,那有什么好玩的?那是小孩玩的东西。

LL: Remember what you said, Li Hua? Different people get jazzed about different things.

LH: 没错,没错,我是说过。

LL: Remember, the guy in our English class really get jazzed about flying kites. We should have asked him to come to the beach with us today.

LH: 对了,忘了邀请他一起来了。你不是说有三个理由让你兴奋吗?

LL: Yes, the third reason is that I am jazzed to be spending some time with one of my favorite friends. And that would be you, Li Hua.

LH: 第三个理由是跟像我这样的好朋友一起出游让你感到兴奋。Larry,你的嘴可真甜呐。不过,我还是谢谢你的好意。

LL: Well, now that I've put on some sun screen, Li Hua, I am going to go catch some waves.

LH: Catch some waves? 你能抓到海浪吗?

LL: Ha, ha. I don't mean with my arms. To catch some waves- WAVES, means to ride some waves on your surfboard.

LH: Oh, 我明白了, 你是要去冲浪。 不过,今天的浪不太,即使是用新的冲浪板也不好冲哟。

LL: You are right, Li Hua. It isn't the best day to catch waves. The waves aren't very big, but I can at least try out my new surfboard by catching some little waves.

LH: 不管是大浪还是小浪, 反正有浪就行了。Go and catch your waves。我在这里看我的书。

LL: Oh, come on Li Hua, why don't you come out and catch some waves with me?

LH: 我不知道怎么冲浪,我从来没有试过。

LL: Catching waves isn't hard, Li Hua. I can show you how.

LH: Okay, 那我去试试。不过, 你知道我有点紧张。

LL: Oh, it will be fine, Li Hua. Let's go catch some waves.

(Ocean/splashing sounds)

LH: 我们已经在水里了,那怎么冲浪呢?

LL: First, you hold on to the surfboard like this. And then you wait for a wave to catch. When a big wave comes along, you stand up on the surfboard and ride it.

LH: 我来试试。 把冲浪板拿好, 然后海浪一来,就站到冲浪板上。噢,我的天啊, 大浪来了!

LL: Okay, Li Hua, try to stand up. Good job, you caught your first wave!

LH: Wheeeee, 我第一次冲浪成功了!

LL: See, I told you catching some waves isn't hard.

LH: 冲浪是不难。 Larry,我们再来一次吧。

今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是jazzed, 意思是令人兴奋,还有一个是catch some waves, 意思是海上冲浪。
