1. Is there a fan in your classroom? 你教室裡有電扇嗎?
I don't have my own classroom. I go to the students' classrooms. They have many fans in each classroom, but these classrooms are only a little colder than it would be outside. Our school doesn't have very good ventilation. 我沒有自己的教室. 我在班級教室裡上課. 每間教室有很多電扇, 但這也只是讓這些教室比外面涼快一點點而已. 我們學校的通風效果不好.
2. I'm hungry. Do we have any fruit? 我很餓. 我們有沒有水果?
I'm sorry that you're hungry, but I have nothing to eat here. All I have in my desk is a bag of tea. If you wait a few minutes the lunch lady will come, and she will deliver the fruit for our lunch. 我不想讓你覺得很餓, 可是這裡沒有食物. 我書桌裡只有一袋茶葉. 等幾分鐘後, 送午餐的阿姨會過來. 她也會帶午餐的水果來.
3. What's the height? 多高呢?
The height of what? If you don't understand the word "height," let me tell you that it is a term expressing the tallness of something, as opposed to the "width" or wideness. The height of Taiwan's tallest peak, Jade Mountain, is 3,952 meters. 什麼的高度? 你如果不懂"height"這個英文字, 我跟你說"height"就是高度, "width"就是寬度. 台灣最高的玉山的高度有3952公尺.
4. What do you like to do in your free time? 你空閒時喜歡做什麼?
Today is Friday, so after school I will go home and read my chemistry book for a while. I think chemistry is an interesting subject. I will probably also drink a few beers and try to relax. During Saturday and Sunday I can't say with any certainty what I will do, but I can tell you that I don't have as much free time as I would like to. 今天是星期五, 所以下班後我要回家看我的化學課本. 我覺得化學很有趣. 也許我也會喝幾瓶啤酒放鬆. 我不知道這個禮拜六, 日要做什麼, 因為我沒有那麼多自己想要的空閒時間.
5. I'd like a room with double beds, please. 請給我有二張床的房間.
That's great but I can't help you with that. I would like a large milk tea with red beans. I would also like the Chinese military to stop building islands in the South Pacific, the Seahawks to win the next Superbowl, and to visit several wilderness areas during my upcoming trip back to Seattle. 好. 可惜我沒辦法幫這個忙. 我想喝大杯紅豆奶茶. 我也想大陸的海軍不要在南太平洋蓋小島. 我也要西雅圖的海鷹美式足球隊在下一個超級盃打敗對手. 我也想在西雅圖的時候去很多森林區.
But what about you? Is there a fan in your classroom? Are you hungry? What do you like to do in your free time? Do you want a room with double beds? 你呢? 你教室裡有電扇嗎? 你餓了沒? 你空閒時喜歡做什麼? 你要間有二張床的房間嗎?
