 <播放语音>

Wei
: This is better than some of the hotels we've stayed in.
Paul: No kidding. That queen-sized bed in the back looks great.
Wei: For me, that is. You and Trev will have to sleep in the two beds up front.
Paul: Only if you do some cooking in this kitchenette.
Wei: Do you think this motor home is too big?
Paul: It is a bit grandiose. I don't think we really need one with these slideout sections.
Wei: Yeah, it's nice, but maybe we need to check out something smaller.

(续上期)

小薇:这比我们住过的某些饭店都还好。
保罗:没错。后面那张特大的床看起来棒极了。
小薇:对我来说才是。你跟崔佛要睡前面的两张床。
保罗:条件是妳要在这小厨房做菜才行。
小薇:你会不会认为这辆汽车房屋太大了?
保罗:是有点过头了。我想我们不需要有可延伸空间功能的汽车房屋。
小薇:对,这辆车很赞,可是也许我们得看小一点的。


重点解说:

★ queen-sized (a.) 特大的(床)
★ kitchenette (n.) 小厨房,简易厨房
★ grandiose (a.) 宏伟的,夸张的
★ slideout section 可移动区。汽车房屋的某些地方可以延伸空间,有这种功能的部位叫slideout section

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

All you remember about your child being fourteen is being asked not to stop the car in front of the school in the morning. You had to drive two blocks further and unlock the doors without coming to a complete stop. You remember not getting to kiss your child goodbye or talking to him in front of his friends. You wished your child would be more mature.

孩子14岁时,你所记得的,是他不让你早晨把汽车停在校门口。你不得不开过两个街区,车还没停稳就赶紧打开车门。你记得没能在他的朋友面前跟他吻别或说话。你多希望孩子能更成熟些。
