010A 食物: 初级课程

Doug and Liz正开车去超市买菜,可Doug忽然觉得饿了,想顺道先去快餐店买个汉堡吃。 Professor: Winnie, do you ever get hungry when you go shopping? 当然有啊,所以每次去超市前,我都先要吃得饱饱的,要不然,到了超市里,我就会看见什么买什么! Doug: Hey Liz, I'm really hungry. Let's stop and eat something. Liz: Alright, where do you want to eat? Doug: There is a McDonalds nearby. Liz: Fast food is so unhealthy. But if you are really hungry, we can go through the drive-through. Doug: No, let's go inside. I don't want to spill my drink in the car. Professor: So Winnie, did you hear where Doug wants to eat? 他想去McDonalds,就是麦当劳。不过,他说drive-through,就是中文里说的“得来速”,也就是不用下车的点餐服务窗口吧? Professor: Exactly! Why doesn't Doug want to use the drive-through? 因为他不想在车上吃东西,怕饮料会洒在车上。我也觉得,边吃东西边开车是很危险的。 Professor: That's true. I guess there are two ways eating fast food can kill you. 说得对! 吃太多快餐垃圾食品会把身体搞垮,如果边开车边吃还可能让你出车祸! Cashier: Welcome to McDonalds! May I take your order? Doug: Yes, I'd like two hamburgers, a large Coke and a large fries. Cashier: Do you want anything, ma'am? Liz: No thanks, I'm on a diet. Cashier: For here or to go? Doug: For here. Cashier: Alright, that will be 11 dollars and 50 cents. Liz 说,she is on a diet, 正在节食,所以不吃这些高热量的快餐。Doug 真应该向 Liz 学学。 Professor: Yes, fast food has a lot of fat in it. But Winnie, does Doug want the food "for here" or "to go"? Doug 说for here, 也就是在餐厅里吃。如果说 "to go",就是打包带走的意思。 Professor: Yes. When you take food home from a restaurant, you can also say the food is for "take out." Now Doug and Liz are eating their food. Let's listen. Doug: Do you want to eat my tomato? I don't like them. The only topping I like is ketchup. Liz: Sure, I love tomatoes. They're a healthy food. Doug: That's true. Are you sure you don't want anything? Liz: Well I know the French fries are very unhealthy, but they look so good. Doug: Come on Liz, try one. It won't kill you. Liz: Well alright, I'll have just one. Doug: Great! I'm going to get a refill of soda. 看来, Liz 的决心动摇了。虽然她一直在说快餐多没营养,可是一看到Doug的薯条,也忍不住要吃上一根。 Professor: That's right. And did you hear what topping Doug likes, and which one he doesn't like? Doug 说, 在汉堡的所有佐料中,他只喜欢ketchup--番茄酱, 还说他不爱吃番茄。真奇怪,番茄酱不就是番茄做的嘛? Professor: That's right. What does Doug say he is going to do at the end? 他说他要去refill他的饮料. Professor, refill, r-e-f-i-l-l, refill 就是续杯的意思吧? Professor: Correct. When you go to a restaurant, you can ask the waiter, "Do you have free refills?" 嗯…这些碳酸饮料中的热量已经很高了,还要续杯?我看还是算了吧! Professor: Now let's see what Doug says when he returns to the table. Doug: Liz, where are all my fries? Did you eat them all? Liz: I'm sorry, Doug. They were just so good! Once I started eating them, I couldn't stop. Doug: Don't worry Liz. If I'm going to get really fat, you should get really fat too! We will look really cute together. Liz: Wow, that is a really scary thought. I need to exercise right now! 啊? Liz 趁Doug不在,居然把他的薯条都吃了!不过,她显然不想和Doug一起变成胖子,所以说要马上去健身。不过首先,希望他们在超市能买些健康食品! Professor: Well listen next time to find out! 这次的美语三级跳就播送到这里。
