Waiting for food at the restaurant
Kathy: Hakka means "guest people". There were something like five migrations of Hakka to Taiwan over thousands of years.
Morley: Where did the Hakka originally come from?
Kathy: Around Hubei. Eventually, they went south to Canton.
Morley: It's surprising they didn't just disappear through intermarriage then.
Kathy: True, since Hakkas have always been a society apart. We only really started marrying outsiders in the last hundred years or so.

(续上期)

在餐厅里等上菜
卡西︰客家意思就是‘客人’。几千年来客家人大概经历了五次的移民来台。
莫理︰客家人最先是起源于哪里?
卡西:湖北附近。最后,他们往南到了广东。
莫理:真惊讶他们没有因为通婚而消失。
卡西:没错,客家人一直是一个很特别的社会。我们大概在最近几百年才开始跟外族通婚。


重点解说:

★ migration (n.) 移民,移居
★ eventually (adv.) 终于
★ intermarriage (n.) 通婚

 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

There are 70,000 pubs in England and Wales and several thousand more in Scotland. Every country has its drinking shop, but none has an institution quite like the British pub. The essence of a good pub (which modern buildings hardly ever achieve) is a feeling of intimacy. It must have nooks and crannies, corners and snugs, where conversations and assignations can take place without the whole world listening in.

英格兰和威尔士有7万家酒馆,苏格兰还有数千家。每个国家都有喝酒的店铺,但没有哪个国家酒馆的习俗是与英国相像的。一家好酒馆的要素在于它有一种亲密感(这是现代建筑难有的),有各种隐蔽的角落和雅座。在这样的地方谈话、幽会不会被任何人窃听。
