Question

I'm Cici, I'm from Shanghai, China. Look around our house, there are many different furniture. I want to know the names of different furniture, could you explain to me? That's all.

Thank you.

Yang Li
谢谢 Cici 的提问。这可是个很实用的问题呀!一方面是不知道家具和汉语对应的英文名称;另一方面是英国人家里特有的、不为中国人所熟悉的家具和家居用品怎么说。好吧我们来一次家具盘点。请我的英国同事 Neil 介绍一下他自己家中的家具和家居用品。Thanks for joining me today, Neil.  

Neil
It's a pleasure. My home is a typical house, with a living room, two bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom
他说,“不客气。我的家是个典型的市郊房子,有两个卧室,一个客厅,一个厨房和一个卫生间”。

Neil
In my living room, I have a fireplace with a marble mantelpiece. There is a large mirror above the fireplace. I have chosen to install a large electric fire in the fireplace, which is the focal point of the room. Arranged around this I have a couple of comfortable sofas, a large coffee table, which I use to dump the bits and pieces of daily life; anything from books,  newspapers, and even, on occasion, my dinner!
“在我的客厅里, 有一个壁炉,壁炉架是大理石的, 上方有一个大镜子。我选择安装了一个电壁炉使之成为客厅的中心点。在壁炉前我摆放了两个舒适的沙发,中间是个大咖啡桌,放零零碎碎的东西,有报纸,书籍,偶尔还有我的晚餐。”

Neil
I also have a wide screen TV, a CD player, a digital radio and my two bookcases of course. I enjoy reading books and listening to music. My old-fashioned standard lamp is in the corner.
“我还有宽屏电视,CD播放器、数码收音机,当然还有我的两个书柜。我喜欢读书和听音乐。墙角儿是个老式台灯。”

Neil
I have two large bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with a king-size bed and a bunk bed which my nephews use when they come to visit me with their mum and dad! I was able to furnish both rooms with top quality wood furniture, including beautiful wardrobes with a matching dressing table and night tables.
“我有两个大卧室,一间卧室里有张双人床,另一间卧室里有一张加大双人床和一张上下床,我的两个侄子每次和他们父母来看我的时候都用这个上下铺!我给两个房间里都购置了高质量的实木家具,包括漂亮的衣柜、配套的梳妆台和床头柜。”

Neil
The style of my kitchen is quite modern, it has a solid wood theme for all the cabinets and work tops. As a contrast all my appliances are stainless steel, such as the refrigerator, the oven, the microwave and the kitchen sink. So are all the smaller gadgets such as my kettle, the coffee maker and the food mixer.
“我的厨房是现代风格的,实木主题的橱柜和台面。与其形成鲜明对照的是不锈钢的电器,比如冰箱、烤箱和微波炉以及洗碗池都是不锈钢的。其他小电器,比如热水壶,咖啡壶和食品搅拌机也都选择了不锈钢材料。”

Neil
My bathroom is a bit small, so I always describe it as 'compact'.  Nevertheless, it manages to contain all the usual features, including a really nice shower, bath unit, with a matching basin and toilet, all in a modern style.
“我的卫生间有点小, 我称它为“紧凑适用”吧。不过麻雀虽小五脏俱全,卫生间配有一套很好的浴缸加淋浴,还有配套的洗手盆和马桶,整体感觉都是现代风格的。”

Yang Li
好了,听了这些希望你来试试哟,看你能不能把周围的所有家具用英语说出来。还有困难吗?没关系,我已经预料到了。所以我特意编纂了一个全方位的家具名称列表 a list of some of the most commonly-used furniture and household appliances. 可以下载,收藏和随时查阅。再次感谢 Cici 的录音提问。希望大家从中获益。感谢收听,我们下次节目再见!

Podcast Number 6 — Melbourne's Train System
播客第6期:墨尔本的铁路系统
Hi, Melbourne is a large city with a ______________ of around 4.2 million people. Melbourne is also _____________________ an area of about 2000 square kilometres. Like all big cities, people need to travel in Melbourne. Many people work in the city centre and each day they need to _________________________. Still more people like to shop and visit the city centre. About 800,000 people use the city centre each day.

Melbourne has a ____________system (Metro Melbourne), a________ system and also, for the inner city, a ___________ system. As well, many people still use their cars to get into the city every day. In this podcast, I will talk about the train system for our city.

Metro Melbourne — trains in Melbourne
墨尔本地铁
The train system, called Metro Melbourne, has 16 ____________ linking the centre of the city to most of the major ________________of Melbourne. The lines are named after the  _______________for each line. For example, the line closest to me is the Lilydale Line. Lilydale is a nice village ______________________ of Melbourne's north west. I often ride through Lilydale on my motorcycle rides into the hills around Melbourne. So this line is called the Lilydale line.


大家好。墨尔本是一座约有420万人口和占地面积达2000平方千米的大城市。和所有的大城市一样,人们游走在墨尔本这座城市中。许多人在市中心上班,每天在上下班的人流中穿行。然而更多人喜欢在市中心购物游览。每天市中心人流量达80万左右。

墨尔本有铁路(墨尔本地铁)和公交系统,而且城中心还有电车系统。同样,还是有很多人每天开着私家车进城。在本期播客中,我要谈谈我们城市的铁路系统。

铁路系统,也叫作墨尔本地铁,共有16条线路,它们连通着市中心与墨尔本绝大多数主要区域。每条线路都是以终点站的名字命名的。例如,离我最近的一条线路叫利德尔线。而利德尔是位于墨尔本西北部城市边缘的一个美丽的村落。我常常会骑摩托车穿过利德尔一直骑到墨尔本近郊的山里。因此这条线叫作利德尔线。

译文属可可原创,仅供学习交流使用,未经许可请勿转载

重点单词

  • destinationn. 目的地,终点,景点

  • populationn. 人口 ,(全体)居民,人数

  • spreadv. 伸展,展开,传播,散布,铺开,涂撒 n. 伸展,传

  • robv. 抢劫,掠夺


澳洲慢速英语听力播客 第14期:墨尔本的铁路系统(2)


The Metro Melbourne system is mostly above the ground. Only the small section which runs around the city centre is _______________-, passing through 3 underground stations. The main city stations are Southern Cross Station and Flinders Street Station and these are above ground. Flinders Street Station is an older style building and very interesting.


Southern Cross Station is a new building and very modern. Each train station has Protective Services Officers. They are special police who only work on the Metro Melbourne train system. They ________that Metro Melbourne travellers are ___________. Melbourne's train system is a generally safe system and people can use it safely right up until the last train.

The last train from the city leaves at around _____________for most lines. On week ends, a ________________ (Night Rider) runs after the last train to most ______________. But I am always in bed by that time.

To ____________on Melbourne's trains, you must have a special card called a 'Myki'.

There is no other way to pay for your travel on a Melbourne train. First you need to buy a Myki card (for $6) and you must '__________' some money onto it. You can buy a Myki card at any train station, at many shops (e.g. 7-Eleven) and from Myki self service machines at train stations.

墨尔本地铁系统大多在地面以上。只有横穿市中心的较小区域,地铁是在地下的,会经过三站地的地下站点。主要城市站点南十字街站和弗林德斯街站都是在地面之上的。其中弗林德斯街站是老式的建筑风格,十分有趣。

南十字街站建筑风格新颖而现代。每个地铁站都有安保服务人员。他们是只负责墨尔本地铁系统的特殊警力。他们要确保墨尔本地铁系统乘客的安全。总体上说,墨尔本铁路系统是安全的,从首班车一直到末班车人们都可以放心地乘坐。

对于大多数地铁线路,由市中心发出的最后一班车于午夜收车。每周末,末班地铁之后还有公交服务车(夜车)由市中心到其他城郊地区。不过那时候我都已在床上了。

要乘坐墨尔本地铁,你必须得有张叫Myki的特别的卡。

在墨尔本地铁上再没有其他支付方式了。首先你需要买一张Myki卡(合6美元)然后你得在卡里存些钱。你在地铁站就可以买Myki卡,在很多商店(如7-11)还有地铁的自助服务机那儿也可以买到。

译文属可可原创,仅供学习交流使用,未经许可请勿转载


When you buy a Myki card, you can also 'load' some money onto it at the same time. It's really quite easy. Every time you travel, you must '___________________' at the Myki reader machine at the entrance to the station where you begin your journey. When you get off at the end of your journey, you must ______________' with your card at the Myki reader machine at that station. The Myki system ____________your fare from the amount you loaded onto your Myki. I put $30 on my Myki when I first bought it. It costs about $5.50 to go from my nearest station into the City. That's about 25 kilometres. So it's not too expensive.

Of course, at ___________ travel times around _________________ in the evening and from_______________in the morning, Melbourne's trains are usually ____________. But even at these times, I can always find a ____________to ________________, or sometimes even _____________. At other times, there will always be a seat for you.

I hope that has given you some basic information about Melbourne's train system. When you come to Melbourne, you should try it.


当你买到一张Myki卡,你可以同时在上面存点钱。真的很容易。每次你要出门,你都得在站点入口的Myki读卡器那里刷一下卡。你下车以后,要在出站时再刷一下卡。Myki系统会从你存在Myki卡上的总金额中扣去所需的费用。我第一次购买时存入了30美元,从离我最近的站进城扣去我5.5美元。行程约25千米,所以还不算贵。


当然,在傍晚5点到6点,早上7点半到9点的出行高峰时段,墨尔本地铁通常是满员的。但即使是在这些时段,我也总能找到一个能够让自己舒服地站着的位置,有时我甚至能找到个座位。其他时段里,总是会找到个座位的。

我希望你已对墨尔本的地铁系统有了基本的了解。当你有机会来墨尔本时,应该尝试一下。

It’s impossible to know, but this is probably Henry Ford’s head.
虽然已经无法求证,但这可能是亨利·福特的脑袋。
And this? This is definitely Henry Ford __________ by a __________.
那这个呢?这绝对是在小溪边洗碗的亨利·福特。
Starting in 1915, these four men ____________and road ____________together, regularly: Lemme show you.
从1915年开始,这四个人就经常一起露营,一起自驾游:不信我给你们看。
You’ve got John Burroughs — imagine somebody as famous as Bill Nye or Neil deGrasse Tyson, but for nature.
这四人分别是约翰·巴勒斯——想象一下一个像比尔·奈(演员)或奈尔·德葛拉司·泰森(天文学家)一样有名气的人,只不过要换成环保界。
There’s tire _____________Harvey Firestone, Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company, and Thomas Edison, America’s most famous inventor.
轮胎巨头哈维·费尔斯通,福特汽车创始人亨利·福特以及美国最著名的发明家托马斯·爱迪生。
This group’s adventures took two American classics and brought them to a whole new level: The road trip and the ________________stunt, too.
这群人的冒险可以说将美国两大经典——自驾游和炒作——上升到了全新的高度。
You could ____________________ John Burroughs beard.
约翰·巴勒斯这把胡子要是有人掉进去,怕是爬都爬不出来了噢。
Burroughs is the least likely of this road trip group, but he’s kind of the linchpin.
巴勒斯原本最不可能加入这一团队,但他说得上是团队的关键人物——
He was __________ _______________.
他是环保精英。
Here’s his beard and Teddy Roosevelt at Yellowstone in 1903.
这是1903年他和泰迪·罗斯福在黄石公园的合影。
He knew the environmental _______________of industry.
他深知工业会对环境造成怎样的影响。
When the Model T came out in 1908, he called it a “demon on wheels.”
1908年T型车问世时,他还称其为“轮子上的恶魔”。
So Henry Ford sent him one.
亨利·福特送了他一辆。
They became friends.
两人就成了朋友。
This is John Burroughs inside his demon on wheels.
这是约翰·巴勒斯坐在他的“轮子上的恶魔”里的照片。
Ford had long known Edison as his ______________, and Firestone was a natural fourth from the tire ________________.
福特一直视爱迪生为他的良师益友,费尔斯通自然而然就是出身轮胎行业的四号人选了。
The group started roadtripping together and they called themselves “The Vagabonds.”
四人开始一起自驾游,还自称为“流浪汉。”
Hijinks ensued.
狂欢也随之而来。
Yep. Henry Ford just climbed a tree.
没错。亨利·福特在爬树。
After driving over ________________roads, they communed with nature, following a typical __________________:
走过一些人迹罕至的道路后,他们开始跟大自然对话了,按照惯常的方式:
Burroughs went for long walks, Firestone read, Edison ____________,
巴勒斯散步,菲尔斯通看书,爱迪森打盹,
and Henry Ford, well, he ________________________wood.
亨利·福特,他砍柴。
He really hated wood.
看来他真的很讨厌木头噢。
Along their routes, they met other inventors and business ________who occasionally tagged along.
一路上,他们还遇到了其他发明家和商业巨头,那些人偶尔也会跟他们蹭一段。
According to one essay by a fellow road-tripper, Thomas Edison also called Firestone and his son Harvey Jr. “_____________” for an entire trip.
一位同行的自驾游朋友的一篇文章提到,爱迪生一路上对菲尔斯通和他的儿子小哈维的称呼都是“哥们儿”。
Now the meaning at the time is a little bit different, because “dude” might have been a_______________, or a _____________ person.
这个词那会儿的意思还有点儿不太一样,因为“哥们儿”可能指城里人,也可能指穿着讲究的人。
But let’s not lose site of the fact that Thomas Edison was walking around calling Harvey Firestone “dude” when he wanted to get his attention.
不过,我们只消知道爱迪森想引起哈维·费尔斯通注意的时候竟然会叫他“哥们儿”就行了。
They took a lot of trips.
他们一起旅行了很多次。
This 1918 route was typical of their regular journeys, and the group of “great men”________________________ everywhere they went.
他们1918年走的这条线堪称是他们常规路线的一个代表,而且,这群“大人物”无论走到哪里都会成为头条新闻。
On this trip, they _____________ throughout Virginia, _________ North Carolina, and _________________back up to Maryland.
那一次,他们穿越了弗吉尼亚,到了北卡罗来纳,才又很快返回马里兰州。
Their fun road trips were a _________________, like here, when Asheville, North Carolina papers ______________________their arrival, visit, and departure.
他们有趣的旅行十分轰动,比如在北卡罗莱纳州阿什维尔的时候,当地报纸全面报道了他们到达、游览及离开的情形。
It was called a “trip with friends.”
还称他们的旅行是“和朋友的旅行”。
But it wasn’t just a normal road trip.
但他们的旅行并非普通的自驾游。

海外生活学会“创造安全环境”避免闯“红灯”

作者:EEBEH壹贝

一个老生常谈的话题还是要提:海外生活如何不闯“红灯”

海外生活中,并非每个学子都会遭遇枪击、火灾、抢劫等危险。每天过马路、在餐厅吃饭、与同学打交道、与寄宿家庭相处,这些“日常”才是更多学子需要学习和了解的地方。

日常生活中,由于海内外环境差异导致学子卷入纠纷的事件不在少数。学子因没有意识到触犯当地法律法规而被遣返的情况也时有发生。
