美语三级跳 (Go English) 002B讲 - “找房”单元中级课程

Jeff想租间公寓,请朋友Sarah帮忙一块儿看广告。

Professor: In this first part, listen for the word "listings," which is a list of available apartments that you can find in a newspaper or online.

哦,listing在这里就是房屋招租广告。

Jeff: Hey Sarah, I'm having some trouble finding an apartment. Can you help me look at some listings online?

Sarah: Sure. What kind of apartment are you looking for?

Jeff: Well, it has to be cheap. I don't want a really expensive apartment.

Sarah: OK. Would you like to live in a studio?

Jeff: Sure, a studio would be fine.

Professor: So Winnie, what is the most important thing for Jeff when looking for an apartment?

MC: 价钱! 他呀,老想找个便宜的studio, 真没劲!

Professor: Well, I guess Jeff is a bit more practical than you. In this next section listen for the word "cozy," which means small and comfortable.

Sarah: Jeff, look at this listing! It says there is a cozy studio apartment for rent, and it's only $700 per month. What do you think?

Jeff: Well I think I can afford that apartment. But are pets allowed?

Sarah: Hmm ... let me look. Yes, it says it's a pet-friendly building.

Jeff: That's great. That means I can bring my cat, Mr. Twinkles. Where is the apartment located?

Sarah: It says it's located in the suburbs.

Professor Bowman, 什么是 pet-friendly building?

Professor: It means that pets are welcome in that building.

MC: A pet-friendly building 是可以养宠物的公寓。

Professor: Exactly. In the next section, listen for the term "a steal." What do you think that means?

MC: Hmm ... steal在这里一定不是偷东西,而是指a very good deal, 就是说特别划算!

Professor: You got it!

Jeff: It's located in the suburbs? Well even though that sounds like a steal, I really want something downtown.

Sarah: OK. Well the problem is that the apartments in the heart of the city are usually more expensive.

Jeff: I know, that's my problem. What do you think I should do?

Sarah: Well, maybe you could get a two-bedroom apartment downtown and share the rent with a roommate.

Jeff: Oh, great idea!

Professor: So Winnie, can you tell me what the opposite of "the suburbs" is?

The suburbs指郊区,相反的肯定是downtown,也就是市区! 不过,他们说"in the heart of something"是什么意思?

Professor: Being in the heart of something is the same as being in the very middle of it.

我明白了,in the heart of something 就是指中心位置。

Professor: Good. Let's see what happens next.

Sarah: Well what about this two-bedroom apartment? The listing says it's right in the heart of the city, just steps from the metro.

Jeff: Wow, that would be very convenient. How much is the rent?

Sarah: It says it's $1600. But if you share it with another person, that's only $800 per month.

Jeff: That definitely sounds like a steal. I think that is a very trendy neighborhood as well.

Sarah: That's true. I know that there are lots of popular restaurants and coffee shops around there.

Jeff真是好运气! 找到个两居室,月租只要1600美元,和室友分一下,一人八百块。It's a steal!

Professor: And the location of that apartment is also very good. It is only "steps from the metro," meaning you only need to walk a short distance to the subway station.

对啊,走几步就能到地铁站,太方便了!他们还说公寓所在的地方很trendy,就是很受欢迎的新潮区。那Jeff可要当机立断!

Jeff: Well, this apartment is really a must-see. Will you come with me to look at it this weekend?

Sarah: Sure. And if you rent it, maybe I can help you find a roommate too.

Jeff: Great! Do you know someone else who is also looking for an apartment?

Sarah: Yes, my friend Steve. I'll introduce you.

Sarah真是太够意思了,连找室友都包了! Professor Bowman, 您说Jeff和Sarah推荐的室友Steve能合得来么?

Professor: Well, we'll have to listen next time and find out!

这次的美语三级跳就播送到这里。

I found my apartment from listing online. The real furnitures and appliances are just not as same as the landlord said. So be careful and see more. I do not like the pet-friendly building. Now people like to live downtown ,it is convenient and steps from the bus station or subway. More and more companies locate in suburbs. Subsequently more and more people purchase apartments in suburbs.
