 lesson85 The Weather   天气(英国)

原文:

C:Chinese student    F: Foreigner

 

C: I have heard that in Britain it often rains a lot. Sometimes I have heard the expression" raining cats and dogs" when it's raining very heavily.   Is that right?

F: Yes, it does rain quite a bit in Britain and we sometimes do say it's raining cats and dogs when it's raining very heavijy. But, we often just have showers, as in a small amount of rain, and then we say "It's drizzling. "

C: Is it true chat English people always carry umbrellas around with them!

F: Only when it's raining. Actually that is one of the big diffrences between our two cultures.

C: Oh, why is that?

F: Well, when the sun is shining we like to wear as few clothes as possible to get the maximun benefit from the sun bur you use umbrellas ro protcct yourself fiom the sun's rays.

C: Yes, that's true. We think a pale skin is more beautiful.

F: But we think a tan makes us look more healthy.

C: Is it often sunny in England?

F: Not as much as we would like! It certainly does not get as hot as it does here in Beijing and the weatber is not dry like here.  I know we complain about the weather a lot but really I think we get a good mixture of sun and rain and snow.

C: What about fog? I hear that there's a lot in London.

F: Well. that used to be true up t0 50 years ago but now London is fog free.

C: Why is that?

F: Ever since the Clear Air Act of the early 50s we have moved away from coal to smokeless fuel and so the air has got a loC cleaner.

C: Which is your favourite season?

F: I would have to say autumn because all the trees change colour as the leaves go ffom green to red. orange and brown and it really makes for a wonderful sight.

C:What is winter like?

F: Really cold! We would get quite a bit of snow from December to March. Children love it but older people don't like it as much.



译文:

C:中国学生              F:外国人

 

C:听说英国经常下雨。我还听过raining cats and do黟这样的说法,指倾盆大雨。是这样吗?

F:是的,英国经常下雨。下大雨对我们有时的确会用raining cats and dog这样的说法。但是,我们一般下的只是小雨,雨量很少,这时我们就说It's drizzling.

C:英国人足不是总随身带着雨伞啊?

F:只在下雨的时候带。实际上这是我们两种文化间一个很大的区别。

C:哦,怎么回事?

F:是这样,阳光普照时我们都尽量少穿衣服多晒晒太阳,但你们却用伞来遮挡阳光。

C:的确如此。我们认为皮肤白一点更漂亮。

F:但我们却认为皮肤晒黑了看上去更健康。

C:英国晴天多吗?

F:并不像我们希望的那样多。那里的确不像北京这么热,也没有这么干燥。我知道我们英国人常抱怨天气,但实际上我认为我们充分享受了阳光和雨雪。

C:那雾呢?我听说伦敦雾多。

F:哦,那至少是50年前的事了,现在伦敦都没有雾了。

C:怎么回事?

F:自从50年代初颁布了<空气清洁法》以来,我们就一直用无烟燃料取代煤,所以空气已经变得干净多了。

C:你最喜欢哪个季节呢?

F:我最喜欢的是秋季,因为所有的树叶都由绿色变成红色、桔黄色和褐色,那景色真的漂亮极了。

C:冬天是什么样的?

F:非常冷!我们从F2月起一直到次年3月份都会有很多霄天。孩子们非常喜欢下雪天,但年纪大一点的人就不是很喜欢了。
