對話…… 愛麗絲:「我要先去英國,然後去法國。」 貝蒂:「哦,妳要出國嗎?」

Alice:”I will visit England first, and then France.”
Betty:”Oh! Are you going abroad?”
Alice:”Yes, my father has promised to give me money to travel the world if I pass the final exams with flying colors.”
Betty:”Oh! I thought you have some money with you. OK, so have you prepared well for the exam?”
Alice:”Not yet, I don’t have all the books. I have to go and buy them.”
Betty:”Dear Alice, first you have to buy the books, then study, then do the exam well, then get money from your father, then you will travel, right?”
Alice:”Yes, yes. I shall travel by Singapore Airlines. It is really a cool airline.”
Betty:”My dear Alice, please don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”
愛麗絲:「我要先去英國,然後去法國。」
貝蒂:「哦,妳要出國嗎?」
愛麗絲:「是呀,我父親已經答應給我錢環遊世界,如果我期末考成績很出色的話。」
貝蒂:「喔,我還以為妳自己有錢,那妳準備好了嗎?」
愛麗絲:「還沒,我沒有所有的課本,我必須出去買它們。」
貝蒂:「親愛的愛麗絲,首先妳必須買書,然後用功,然後考好期末考,然後從妳父親那裡拿到錢,然後妳才會出國旅遊,對不對?」
愛麗絲:「是啊,是啊,我將搭新航旅行,那真是一家很酷的航空公司。」
貝蒂:「親愛的愛麗絲,別高興得這麼早吧。」
