In Kenting
Kathy: First off, let's go rent scooters.
Morley: I'd rather rent a bicycle. Besides, I don't have a license.
Kathy: OK, that place on the beach rents scooters, mopeds and bicycles.
Morley: Let's check it out.
Kathy: Wow, look. The water is full of jet skis.
Morley: I definitely want to give one of those a whirl.
Kathy: You'll have to go alone because Dan's against them. He says they pollute the water.
Morley: Well, that won't stop me from trying one out.

(下期续)

在垦丁
卡西:首先,我们去租机车。
莫理:我宁愿租辆脚踏车。况且,我没有驾照。
卡西:好,海滩那里有在出租机车、电动脚踏车跟脚踏车。
莫理:我们去看看。
卡西:哇,看。水上都是水上摩托车。
莫理:我一定要骑骑看水上摩托车。
卡西:你得自己去,因为阿丹反对它们。他说它们污染水域。
莫理:嗯,那不会阻挡我去尝试。


重点解说:

★ rent (v.) 出租
★ scooter (n.) 速克达机车
★ license (n.) 执照
★ moped (n.) 电动脚踏车
★ jet ski 水上摩托车
★ whirl (n.) (口)尝试。Give it a whirl是指‘试一下’
