 <播放语音>

Yuling picks up a customer at Airport
Jenny: Yuling! It's so good to meet you!
Yuling: I'm glad I get to show you around my city.
Jenny: Too bad this business meeting is only for three days.
Yuling: Is this the only bag you have?
Jenny: Yes. I always fly light. I only brought carry-on luggage.
Yuling: Then let's go get a taxi to your hotel.
Jenny: [Sighs] More sitting. Oh well.
Yuling: [Flags down a cab] Don't worry, we'll be there in a jiffy.

(下期续)

玉玲在机场接一位客户
珍妮:玉玲!很高兴认识你!
玉玲:真高兴可以带妳逛逛我住的城市。
珍妮:真可惜这次的商务会议只有三天。
玉玲:妳就只有这一个旅行袋吗?
珍妮:是的,我搭飞机一向讲求轻便。我只带了一个随身行李。
玉玲:那我们招辆出租车去妳的饭店吧。
珍妮:(叹气)又要坐了。好吧。
玉玲:(招下出租车)别担心,我们一下子就会到了。

重点解说:

★ airport (n.) 机场
★ bag (n.) 旅行袋。‘行李’是luggage ,会随身带上飞机的‘随身行李’则称做carry-on luggage
★ light (adv.) 轻装地。fly light是指‘轻装飞行’
★ sigh (v.) 叹气
★ flag down 挥手(把车)拦下
★ in a jiffy 很快地

  <播放语音>

The sun fuels life on earth has the potential to do a whole lot more. If we could find more ways to harness solar power safely and efficiently, we could get much more usable energy from it than we currently get from burning fossil fuels like oil, coal, and gas.

太阳除了给地球带来生命,还有很多潜在的功能。如果能够找出更多安全有效的方法来利用太阳能,就能从中获得更多有用的能源,这比我们目前以燃烧石油、煤、汽油等化石燃料所获得的能源还要多。
