A: All right, what do you want to listen to?
B: How about some Beatles?
A: Yeah, all right.
A: 哦,真糟糕。路上又堵车了。

3. Pollution污染
A: Man, that sunset is beautiful. I’ve never seen one so red.

B: Well, give me a call if you can’t make it for some reason.
A: 瞧,日落真漂亮。我从未见过这么火红的日落。
B: 对,很漂亮。可是颜色之所以这么红是因为空气污染。
A: 真的吗?

A: 噢,我们自己已经尽力了。
B: 是呀,下个星期轮到你开车了。接我可别迟到了。

Part Four: Monologue
Modern transportation revolves around cars. Americans drive everywhere, to the store, to work, to school. Everybody wants they’re own car. This creates a tremendous amount of traffic, which leads to many traffic accidents. In addition, all those cars release pollution into the air. Efforts have been made to get people to use public transportation and to carpool, which means sharing rides with other people. Many people believe what we really need is a cleaner car. Companies are trying currently working on designs that would run on water and electricity. People seem likely to buy these cars because of the money they would save on gasoline. They would help the environment a great deal, because they only release water into the air. The first sales of these cars are expected in California around 2005.
现代交通离不开小汽车。美国人去什么地方都开着车,去商店购物,去上班,去学校。人人都想拥有自己的车。这就使得交通负荷增加,导致不少的交通事故。而且,小汽车也在空气中释放污染。在要求人们使用公共交通系统或合伙使用汽车(即和其他人共用汽车)方面,社会已经做过这种努力。很多人认为我们真正需要的是更为环保的车型。汽车公司目前也在试图设计只靠水和电两种能源驱动的汽车。人们也可能购买这种车因为这样可以节省买汽油的费用。因为释放到空气中的只是水份,这样也可以为环保做出很大贡献。这种款式的车有望2005年在加州首次出售。
