Watching Spanish Movie or English Movie – Which is Better?

Kara: So, Lupe, being bilingual you’ve got tons more choices than say I do with things like movies, music, books. once you attend the shop and buy a book, does one normally pip out in English or does one pip out in Spanish or does it just depend upon the book?
卡拉:卢佩,你会说两种语言,所以在电影、音乐和书籍上,你比我有更多的选择。你去书店买书时一般是买英语书籍还是西班牙书籍,还是取决于书籍?

Lupe: i feel it depends not only on the book: it depends on the mood. you recognize there are times once I really feel that I’m forgetting certain things if I’m not speaking enough Spanish or practicing it, so therefore I’ll plan to go and buy a Spanish book so I can continue thereon , but you recognize , there’s times once I just actually need to read a very Bible and sometimes the translations aren’t exact so if i do know the book was originally written in English, I’ll pip out in English simply because i would like the important thing.

卢佩:我觉得不仅仅是取决于书籍,也要看心情。如果我有一段时间没怎么说西班牙或是我练习的不够,那我会感觉我忘了一些事情,所以我就会去买本西班牙语书,帮助我巩固西班牙语,我也有特别想看一本好书的时候,有时译本并不是那么准确,如果我确定那本书是用英语写的,那我就会买英文版,因为我想看到最原汁原叶的内容。

Kara: Now, as far as music goes does one hear both English and Spanish? does one have a preference, and what’s your favorite sort of music?卡拉:那音乐方面呢,你是英语歌和西班牙语歌都听吗?你更喜欢哪种音乐,你最喜欢哪种类型的音乐?

Lupe: OK, so when it involves music, my favorite singer in Spanish is Luis Miguel. I hear him all the time. i really like his music and in English my favorite singer in Mariah Carey so I hear her all the time, and albeit they’re differing types of genres they’re still, you know, both my favorite sorts of music of the singer and he just happens to sing in Spanish. i really like his voice. She happens to sing in English. i really like her voice, but I can hear all kinds of music in English and in Spanish. Sometimes, I’m within the mood for Spanish music if I’m going bent maybe a Mexican dance where i will be taking note of more Spanish music and there is times once I leave with my other friends and that i know we’re getting to be dancing to English music so get within the mood, I’ll placed on English CD’s.

卢佩:音乐方面,我最喜欢的西班牙语歌手是路易斯·马吉尔。我经常听他的歌。我喜欢他的音乐,英语歌手我最喜欢玛丽亚·凯莉,我也经常听她的歌,虽然他们演唱的类型不同,但是他们是我最喜欢的歌手,而且刚巧马吉尔是用西班牙语演唱。我非常喜欢他的声音。凯莉是用英语演唱,我也很喜欢她的声音,不过基本上各种类型的英语歌和西班牙语歌我都会听。如果我去跳墨西哥舞蹈,那我会想多听些西班牙语歌曲,所以我就会多听些西班牙语音乐,有时我和朋友们出去,我知道我们跳舞时会搭配英语歌曲,那为了找感觉我就会放英语歌曲来听。

Kara: and films . There’s not tons of Spanish movies that play within the us , but when one does begin every once in awhile, they’ll have them at the theaters, does one wish to go watch them, or does one just prefer the traditional movies that begin here?

卡拉:现在来说电影。在美国放的西班牙语电影不太多,不过偶尔会有西班牙语电影在电影院上映,你是喜欢去电影院看西班牙语电影,还是喜欢这里放映的电影?

Lupe: i actually enjoy getting to the films , and you’re right, Spanish movies don’t begin fairly often , so once they do i buy really, really excited that they are actually gonna have something in my primary language so I definitely go and watch the films and you recognize , I’m very happy and proud that there is finally a Spanish one beginning which they’re showing it during this country albeit it’s in Spanish and that they normally just use subtitles, so yeah, once they do I’m definitely one among the primary people there to observe them.

卢佩:我非常喜欢去电影院看电影,你说的没错,西班牙语电影在美国上映的机会不多,所以如果有西班牙语电影上映,那我会非常非常激动,因为用我的母语拍摄的电影上映了,所以我一定会去电影院看,我会既高兴又自豪,因为终于有西班牙语电影要在这个国家上映了,虽然对白是西班牙语下面会有字幕,但是如果有西班牙语电影上映那我一定是第一批冲去电影院观看的人。
