实战口语情景对话:English Travel Tips 英国旅行小贴士

Todd: Steven, if I go to England, and I can choose between Manchester, and Liverpool, (right) and speaking English in London (right) those are the only three major cities I know, which one would you say is the best?

托德:史蒂文,我知道的三大城市是曼彻斯特,利物浦和伦敦,如果我去英国说英语旅游,你认为哪个城市最好?

Steven: Out of those three, well I would have to say London. I’ve never actually been to Liverpool so I can’t comment on Liverpool. I have spent a short time in Manchester before. Uh, I enjoyed Manchester. It’s a very lively city. It has lots of good clubs and it has some interesting shopping, there’s some interesting shopping in Manchester, uh, there’s some good markets, but I’ve actually lived in London and I feel like my heart is in London. I feel like a Londoner, and London has everything to offer. Again if you, I’m not particularly into clubs but if you’re interested in clubbing then there are great clubs. There are some good pubs. Um, it has the theatres, hundreds of cinemas. The architecture is fantastic.

史蒂文:在这三个城市中我会选择伦敦。我从来没去过利物浦,所以我不能评论利物浦。我以前在曼彻斯特待过一段时间。我很喜欢曼彻斯特。那是一个充满活力的城市。那里有许多不错的俱乐部,而且也有很有意思的购物场所,当然也有很棒的市场,不过实际上我一直生活在伦敦,所以我内心更喜欢伦敦。我是伦敦人,伦敦可以提供各种服务。我不是很喜欢俱乐部,不过如果你对俱乐部感兴趣,那伦敦也有很棒的俱乐部。有一些不错的俱乐部。伦敦还有剧院,那里有上百家影院,而且建筑都非常棒。

Todd: Well, what about in London there’s many parts, right, so if I do go to London what part of London is the best place to go and stay, I would like to study a bit before going there.

托德:如果我去伦敦,那伦敦最棒的游览地和住宿地是哪里? 我想先学习一下

Steven: Um, it depends on what you want to do. If you want to, if you want, if you want to see the sites then well you’d want to, you’d obviously want to stay centrally, I’d have thought. Um, most of the famous landmarks are in the center. However, if you’re going to spend some time living in London, and if you want to experience maybe a more, just an ordinary side of London, then you can live a bit further out. I actually lived in the south of London, just below Brixton, maybe you know Brixton. I lived in an area called Strettom, and the atmosphere there is very lively, also very lively. I enjoyed South London. In the past South London had a bad reputation. People didn’t think South London was a very nice place to live, but over the last few years the quality of life in South London is improved, has improved a lot. More and more people are moving in to South London and, well, consequently, as a result the prices are going up and up and up, but it’s actually a nice, a nice area to live in, in South English London I think.

史蒂文:嗯,你要取决于你想做什么事情。如果你想去旅游景点,那我认为显然你要住在中心区。大部分著名的地标性建筑都在中心区。但是如果你想在伦敦生活一段时间,想体验伦敦更平常的一面,那你可以住在稍微远一些的地方。实际上我住在伦敦南部,在布里克斯顿南边,也许你知道布里克斯顿。我住在一个叫做Strettom的地方,那里的气氛充满了活力,一直都很有活力。我很喜欢伦敦南部地区。以前伦敦南部的名声不好。人们认为伦敦南部不是一个适合居住的地方,但是过去一年伦敦南部的生活质量有所改善,实际上改善了很多。越来越多的人们搬去了伦敦南部,导致那里的物价不断上涨,不过我认为英语伦敦南部真的是一个适合居住的地方。

Todd: Oh, sounds good. Thanks.

托德:哦,听起来不错,谢谢。
