  • 015 bathroom Words Shower Bath Washbasin Mirror Towel rail Toilet Tiles Toothbrush Toothpaste Soap Shampoo Shower gel Shaving cream Razor Shave Bath towel Phrases Take a shower Have a wash Look in the mirror Have a shave Brush your teeth Comb/brush your hair Beginner A: what’s the first thing you do when you go to the bathroom in the morning? B: I look at myself in the mirror. Sometimes, it’s not a pleasant sight, especially if I have been out late the late before. A: do you usually shower or take a bath? B: I usually don’t have time for a bath in the mornings, so I just take a shower. Sometimes I need a cold shower to wake me up and sometimes I need a hot one, especially if it’s winter and I need to warm up. A; do you shave every morning? B: I shave every workday, but I only shave at weekends if I’m going out somewhere. If I’m staying at home, I don’t shave. A: do you brush your teeth twice a day as dentists recommend? B: Yes. I brush my teeth in the morning, just before I go to work. It’s actually the last thing I do before leaving. Then I brush again before bed. A: your dentist must be proud of you! Intermediate A: the bathroom looks lovely. Did you redecorate it yourself or did you get someone in to do it for you? B: I did it myself. I went online and found a lot of website devoted to home improvement. Then I went to DIY shop and bought everything I needed. I’m sure I saved a lot of money by doing it myself and it was fun too. I learnt a lot by doing it myselft. A: so, let’s see. You have put new tiles on the floor and replaced a few tiles on the walls. You’ve also added a small cupboard for toiletries. The bath, shower, and washbasin are the same as before, aren’t they? B: yes, they are. I gave them a good clean. They are in good condition and don’t need to be replaced. A: how long did it take you to do the tiling. B: as I hadn’t done it before, I had to keep referring to information I got from the internet. Doing the floor tiles took a whole day-from early morning to right through to the evening. Then I spent a few hours replacing the cracked wall tiles. Putting the cupboard up took about an hour, so it took me two days altogether. A: I think you’ve done a very good job. As least as good as a professional would do. Perhaps I can convince you to redo my bathroom? B: you’ll be lucky! However, I’ll print out the information I got from the internet and you can do it yourselfe /200704/12821。

  • VOA流行美语 74: SLACK OFF / PEON今天Michael提前下班,在路上碰到李华。李华会学到两个常用语: to slack off和peon。L: 嘿, Michael, 你今天怎么这么早就下班啦?M: Well, this is the holiday season, so everyone at work is slacking off. No one minds if I leave early.L: 你说是因为过节,早下班没人会介意,而且办公室里每个人都在slacking off? 那是做什么呀?M: (Chuckles) I said everyone is "slacking off". "To slack off" means just the opposite of "being busy". "To slack off" means "to not work hard".L: 噢,to slack off的意思和"努力工作"刚好相反。我懂了,你是说,因为过节,所以同事们都比较放松-- Everyone at work is slacking off. 可是,Michael, 你自作主张提前下班,是不是有一点太slack off了呢?M: Oh, I certainly don't worry about it, because I noticed even my boss is slacking off. He left even earlier than I did.L: 你们公司老板比你走得还早,看来,他比你更加slack off。说得也是,马上就要新年了,连我也觉得挺懒散,什么事都不想做。M: That's Ok. You're on vacation. You have very good reasons to be slacking off.L: 虽然说是放假,可是我本来打算利用假期多读些英文书,我要是这么懒散,恐怕连一本书也读不完了。M: I wish it were holiday all the time, so I could always slack off.L: 什么?你想每天都放假,那你就可以老这么轻松的了?嘿,Michael,我们中文里常说:"一张一驰"。Slack off一段时间以后,你就应该努力工作啦!M: Hmm. Maybe you are right. Sometimes after slacking off during a holiday or vacation, we do feel refreshed and y to get back to work again.L: 也是啊,适当放松一下,工作起来会更带劲儿。新年快到了,我确实应该slack off for a couple of days, 可是如果slack off的时间太长了,我心里就会觉得不安。******L: 哎,Michael, 你提早下班,万一公司有什么要紧事,你不担心同事会找你吗?M: Oh, don't worry about that. I am not that important, I'm just a peon where I work.L: 你是什么?a peon? 那是什么呀?M: I said I am a Peon. The word "peon" originally meant someone who did manual labor in order to pay off a debt. These days, though, people use "peon" to refer to an unimportant person at work who performs a simple task.L: 噢,peon这个词原来是指"为了还债而做苦工的人",现在呢,大家用peon这个词来指那些在公司里做简单工作,地位比较低的雇员。Oh, come on Michael, 你怎么能说自己在公司不重要呢?M: No, I'm just a peon at my workplace. Anyone could do my job.L: 嗯,要是谁都能做你的工作,那恐怕是一个peon了。中文系的李教授常常对我们说,你要不好好干,好多人都等着这个位子呢。看来,我才是一个真正的peon呢。M: Well, maybe you are easy to replace. But that's no reason for you to feel like a peon.L: 你说得对,我不应该自己觉得我做的工作不重要,而且,想想看,我们大学校长或是你们公司老板恐怕当年也做过好一段时间的peon呢!今天李华学到了两个常用语,一个是: to slack off, 意思是"松懈,懒散"。另一个是peon, 指"在工作单位做简单工作的人",也就是所谓的"小土豆"。 /200602/3149。
