对话原文


Nicki: Wow, did you buy out the bookstore?!
你买下了那家书店?

Tony: Very funny. I just got a few guidebooks for our trip to Vancouver. I want to study up on what the must-see sights are, and then decide whether we can do some self-guided tours or need to book guided tours.
你真搞笑。我买了一些去温哥华的旅行指南,我想研究下必看的景点,然后决定我们是否自助旅游或需要预定旅游团。

Nicki: That’s very conscientious of you. The trip isn’t for three months.
你真有责任心。那并不是3个月的长期旅行。

Tony: I know, but I want to start sketching out an itinerary now. I’m going to start out by reading the orientation chapters so I get a feel for the city.
我知道,但是我想现在就定下旅程。我要先读下情况介绍的章节来熟悉下那个城市。

Nicki: Good, then at least one of us will know where to go and what to do.
好的,至少我们中有一个人知道去哪儿和干什么。

Tony: After that, I’m going to read the helpful hints in the accommodations section. I want to make sure we stay in the heart of the city with plenty of nightlife. I’ll read the section on day trips, too, in case we have some extra time.
然后,我要读下住宿部分有用信息,我想确保我们呆在市中心过些丰富的夜生活,我也会读下有关白天旅游的部分,以防我们有额外的空闲时间。

Nicki: It sounds like you’ve got it covered.
听起来你什么都想到了。

Tony: I do. I also want to spend some time learning some survival phrases so I can talk to the locals.
我确实想到了,我还想花点时间学些生活用语,那样我就能和当地人交谈了。

Nicki: Survival phrases? To visit Vancouver?
生活用语?参观温哥华?
Tony: Yeah, we won’t be able to get around without learning some French, you know.
是的,你知道,要是不学些法语我们就不能四处逛。

Nicki: Really? Hmm. I think you’d better keep reading.
真的吗?我认为你最好接着读。
