 <播放语音>

During the pottery class
Dan: This is so relaxing. I could sit behind this clay wheel all day.
Kathy: Me, too. But it also takes a lot of concentration to get your clay just right.
Dan: Watch the expert. The clay knows just what I want it to do.
Kathy: But I thought you were making a cup.
Dan: I was, but it got too big, so I thought I'd make a bowl. But I made the sides too high. Now I'm making a vase.
Kathy: [Joking] So the clay is doing just what you want, eh?

(续上期)

陶艺课上
阿丹:这真是让人轻松。我可以坐在这拉坯台后面一整天。
卡西:我也是。不过你也得很专心才能让陶土成形。
阿丹:看专家表演吧。陶土知道我想要它变成什么。
卡西:可是我以为你要做的是杯子。
阿丹:我本来是,不过变太大了,所以我想我可以做个碗。但是我把边缘做太高了。现在 我要做的是花瓶。
卡西:(开玩笑)所以陶土正在随你的意思改变,是吗?


重点解说:

★ clay wheel 拉坯台,拉陶时下方会转动的底座。clay是‘黏土,陶土’
★ concentration (n.) 专心
★ expert (n.) 专家

  <播放语音>

Because he's been sheltered from publicity, William is very much an unknown quantity to most of his future subjects. And he seems to like it that way. At almost every photo opportunity in the past few years, William has appeared at best shy and often deliberately distant. Photographers frequently complained that they would go through many rolls of film just to get a few frames in which William was actually smiling.

由于威廉一直避开宣传,他未来的臣民大都对他实在不甚了解。而且他似乎也喜欢这样。在过去几年里几乎每张摄影作品中,威廉都显得十分腼腆,并常常故意表现得很冷淡。摄影师们常抱怨说,为了弄到几张威廉笑的照片不得不用掉好多卷胶片。
