2015-12-25朗悦英文学校

Some people love buying presents as much as receiving them. Others don't enjoy going out in bad weather to wander around overheated, overcrowded shops. Here are some five conversations to talk about this seasonal activity.有些人喜欢买礼物也喜欢收礼物,而有些人则不喜欢在恶劣的天气里流连于燥热而拥挤的商场。下面是五个与购物季有关的对话:


1. Round the Bend发疯了

Beth is in a cafe, waiting for Alex to finishhis Christmas shopping. Eventually he arrives. 贝丝在咖啡屋里等待去采购圣诞商品的阿力。终于,阿力来了。

Beth: Did you get everything?

Alex: Hardly. I haven't even got half my presents

Beth: I told you it'd be busy

Alex: Ok, clever clogs!

Beth: People go completely round the bend, don't they? You'd thinkthe shops were going to close for a whole month

Alex: To be honest, I wish they would

贝丝:要买的都买了吗?

阿力:没有啊,我连一半的礼物都没买到。

贝丝:我就说现在购物会很挤嘛。

阿力:好吧,你总是对的。

贝丝:人们完全疯了,难道不是吗?你以为商店整个月都要关门吧。

阿力:说实话,我真希望如此。

Alice: Exactly. You know how much you hate the last-minutepanic

Scott: What did you have in mind?

Alice: This croquet set. It's right up Craig'sstreet, isn't it?

Scott: It looks great, but the price is a bit steep

Alice: Yeah, but he's your brother, and he deserves it

爱丽丝:想好给克雷格买什么圣诞礼物了吗?

斯科特:圣诞?还有三个星期呢。

爱丽丝:是啊,可你清楚你是多么憎恨最后一分钟的恐慌。

斯科特:你想到买什么了?

爱丽丝:买一套槌球游戏吧,这是克雷格喜欢的,没错吧。

珍妮:我给她买了一副耳环,希望她能喜欢。

苏珊:她会喜欢的。

珍妮:它们装进了这么一个小盒子里。

苏珊:她念叨这个念叨了几个星期了。她这下可要乐疯了。我想这一定是她最喜欢的礼物。

Dinah: Mmm! That's an idea! Can you send me a link?

莎拉:“国际无消费日?那是什么?
