对话部分

Todd: Hey, Melissa, we're talking about big events this week and what are some big events that you really enjoy?

托德:嗨,梅丽莎,我们这周要谈论的话题是大型活动,你喜欢哪种大型活动?

Melissa: I like doing community events. I'm trying to get more involved in community events. There's a flea market this weekend.

梅丽莎:我喜欢社区活动。我在努力地参与社区活动。这周末有跳蚤市场。

Todd: A flea market?

托德:跳蚤市场?

Melissa: Yes.

梅丽莎:对。

Todd: Oh, yeah.

托德:好。

Melissa: At the beachside, and there's going to be lots of different eco-friendly stuff going on there, so it's kind of a mix of reuse, resell your old stuff. Get new stuff for cheap.

梅丽莎:在海边举行,到时会有很多环保物品,在那里可以对旧物品进行再利用和转卖。还可以用便宜的价格买到全新的物品。

Todd: OK, so for people who might not be familiar with the term flea market, can you explain?

托德:好,可能有些人不太了解跳蚤市场,你能解释一下吗?

Melissa: A flea market is basically a place where people can take old clothes, old utensils, forks, spoons, knives, things like that from the kitchen, and other housewares either sell them or give them away at a cheap price, and it's fun because the customers ... a lot of them like to come and look at all the different stuff and even maybe haggle some prices, so try to get you to give a lower price, or if you're trying to get rid of a lot of stuff you might try to get the customer to take two things for the price of one. Things like that.

梅丽莎:人们可以在跳蚤市场低价出售旧衣服、旧用具还有叉子、勺、刀等旧的厨房用具,那里很有意思,有很多人喜欢去跳蚤市场,寻找他们需要的东西,还可以讨价还价,尽量用更低的价格买到需要的东西,如果卖家要出售的旧物品比较多,那你可以用一件东西的价格买到两样物品。大概就是这样。

Todd: Yeah, right. Like when I was a kid I used to always go to flea marts or flea markets with my grandparents, and what I thought was great is that you can haggle.

托德:对,没错。我小时候经常和我祖父母一起去跳蚤市场,因为可以砍价,所以我觉得很不错。

Melissa: Yeah.

梅丽莎:对。

Todd: Right? Cause in the U.S. you can't haggle at a store.

托德:对吧?因为美国的商店不能讨价还价。

Melissa: Yeah, exactly. And I like doing that when I'm traveling... haggling. Trying to get a good deal, so it's fun to do it at a flea market when you're selling your own stuff.

梅丽莎:对,没错。我在旅行的时候一般都会砍价。因为要尽量买到便宜货,在跳蚤市场转卖自己的旧东西很好玩。

Todd: So, this weekend, are you selling or buying?

托德:那这周末你是准备卖东西还是买东西?

Melissa: Well, I actually don't have that much stuff to sell cause I've recently moved so I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff I don't need,but I do plan bring some old pieces of clothing and things like that that I want to get rid of, and yeah, I'm really into flea markets and old thrift stores and stuff like that, so I just like to see what people have. If there's something cool, I might buy it.

梅丽莎:我没有太多的旧物品要转卖,因为我刚搬家不久,搬家时扔了很多不需要的东西,不过我打算拿几件不需要的旧衣服去跳蚤市场上卖,我真的很喜欢跳蚤市场和旧货店这样的地方,因为我对其他人的东西感兴趣。如果我看到不错的东西,那我可能会买下来。返回搜狐,查看更多
