Lesson16:  The Great wall   长城(中国)

原文:

T:  Tourist    L: Local

 

T: Hi, do you speak English?

L: Yes, I do! What can I do to help you?

T: Well. I know very little about the Great Wall. Do you know anything about its history?

L: Of course !

T: Great.  Could you tell me when it was built?

L: It has a history of more than 2, 000 years, in the dynasties of Qin, Han and Ming .

T: 2,000 years !  That's a long time !

L: Yes. Some civilisations have long histories , especially China.

T: OK, how long is it exactly?

L: It's 6,700 kilometres long. But, unfortunately some sections are in ruins or lost forever. It stretches across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus.

T: It sounds amazing. Where can I see an untouched area? I mean, an area where not so many tourists go.

L: You could go to Simatai. That area is pretty untouched, with few tourists . But I think the best place to view the Great Wall is here at Badaling because we have a museum here.

T: Do you know who built the wall?

L: It was a team effort of soldiers, prisoners and locals. We believe it shows the tenacity of the Chinese people.

T: Before, you mentioned that the wall was built during many dynasties. Which dynasty does the part we can see now come from?

L: Most of the wall we call see today comes from the Ming dynasty. It's a shame, but nowadays only 30% of the wall is in good condition. But, the Ming dynasty part is still very long. It goes from Shanhaiguan Pass in the east to Jiayuguan Pass in the west.  It passes through Liaoning, Hebei, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Shaanxi and Gansu.

T: Wow! I didn't realise it ran that far. I'd love to see another section.

L: As I said before, you could try Simatai. But it's quite difficult to get to,110 kilometres north east of Beijing. But I can help you to find a way to get there

T: Thank you so much. You have taught me so much already, but I can't wait to find out more.



译文:

T:游客    L:当地人

 

T: 你好,你会讲英语吗?

L: 是的,我会!要我帮什么忙吗?

T: 是这样,我对长城了解很少。你知道它的历史吗?

L: 当然知道!

T: 太好了。你能告诉我长城是什么时候建起来的吗?

L: 长城有2000多年的历史,建于秦朝、汉朝和明朝。

T: 2000年!那历史很长了!

L: 确实是这样,有些文明的历史非常悠久,尤其是中国。

T: 好的,长城究竟有多长?

L:有6700公里。但令人遗憾的是,有些地方已经成了废墟或永远不能修复了。长城绵延万里,穿过了无数的沙漠、草地、大山和平原。

T:听起来很壮观。去哪儿能看到保存完好的长城?我是说游客比较少的地方。

L:你可以去司马台,那个地方保存得很好,游客也很少。不过我认为游览长城最好的地方是这里——八达岭,因为这儿有博物馆。

T:那你知道是谁修建的长城吗?

L:这是士兵、犯人和当地人共同努力修建的。我们认为长城反映了中国人民不屈不挠的精神。

T:你前面提到,长城的修建历经了很多朝代,那我们现在看到的长城是哪个朝代建的?

L:我们今天看到的城墙大部分是明朝建的。说来惭愧,现在只有30%的城墙还保存完好。不过,明长城还是很长的,从东面的山海关一直到西面的嘉峪关,经过了辽宁、河北、北京、天津、山两、内蒙古、宁夏、陕西和甘肃。

T: 哇!我不知道长城绵延那么长。我很想再去看看其它部分。

L: 我刚才说过,你可以去司马台看看。但是去那个地方不太容易,它在北京的东北方向110公里的地方。不过我能帮你找到去那里的路线。

T:太谢谢你了。你今天已经教了我不少东西,可是我非常想再多了解一些。
