美语三级跳 (Go English) 002C讲 - “找房”单元高级课程

Professor: Jeff just rented an apartment, and today he is meeting Steve to see if they would get along as roommates.

找个合得来的室友太重要了。

Professor: In this section, listen for the word "compatible," meaning "similar" or "suitable."

Jeff: Hi Steve, it's nice to meet you. I hear that you're looking for an apartment, and I just rented a two-bedroom downtown. I'm looking for a compatible roommate.

Steve: Great, I'm looking for a place right in that area. Your apartment sounds ideal.

Jeff: Alright. So tell me, how would you describe yourself?

Steve: I'm pretty social and outgoing, and I like making new friends. But I'm not a party animal, and I like to keep the apartment clean.

Jeff: I'm like that too. I like to invite friends over sometimes, but I don't want to have lots of crazy parties at the apartment.

他们俩人听起来挺投机。不过,Professor Bowman, Steve说自己不是"party animal"是什么意思?

Professor: A "party animal" is someone who loves to go out to crazy parties all the time.

哦,party animal就是一天到晚参加疯狂派对的人。

Steve 说自己outgoing“外向”,social“爱交朋友”,但没到每天开派对的地步。

Professor: Winnie, in the next section, listen for the word "laid-back."

Jeff: You know, I'm a pretty laid-back person. I don't like to have lots of arguments or worry about lots of things. For example, I like to keep the apartment clean too, but if it gets a little dirty once in a while, that's not a big deal.

Steve: I totally agree. I really like my lifestyle to be drama-free, and I don't want to argue about cleaning the apartment. My last roommate was a drama queen. Every time I forgot to take my shoes off, she got really mad and made a big deal out of it.

Jeff: Yeah, I really don't want a lot of drama in the apartment. It's important that we don't get on each other's nerves.

Steve: That's right. We should try to be laid back and not do lots of things to bother one another.

Professor, Jeff说自己laid-back,就是性格随和吧?

Professor: That's right!

那Steve和Jeff说了好多什么drama、 "drama queen"的,这都是什么意思啊?

Professor: "Drama" is a short form of the word "dramatic." If someone is always taking small problems and acting as if they are a really big deal, you can say he "creates a lot of drama."

噢,drama是“是非”的意思,爱没事找事的家伙就是"drama queen"。

Professor: Exactly. If you lived with a drama queen, he or she would probably "get on your nerves," meaning "bother you a lot." Well, Winnie, in this next section, listen for the word "pet peeve," meaning "a small problem that really bothers you."

Jeff: Well I'm glad you're laid back like me. But tell me, do you have any pet-peeves?

Steve: Actually, yes. I really hate living with mooches. They always eat all of your food and ask you to pay for everything.

Jeff: I know! Mooches really get on my nerves. My last roommate was a big mooch. Every time we went out to a restaurant, when the bill came he would always say he didn't have any money and ask me to lend him some. And he never paid me back!

Steve: I really think it's important for each roommate to pull his weight around the house. It's really unfair if only one of the roommates is doing all the work.

Jeff: Exactly. We each need to pull our weight by cleaning the dishes, taking out the garbage and paying the bills. I think we would be good roommates. Do you want to move in?

Steve: Sounds great!

哈,pet peeve就是最让受不了的事。我也受不了mooches, 这些小气鬼!对了,他们还说有些室友don't pull their weight,这是什么意思?

Professor: People who don't pull their weight are those who don't do their share in a common task. If you had a roommate who doesn't pull his weight around the house, you would have to do all the housework.

Steve和Jeff性格简直就是一个模子里刻出来的,一定能成为好室友。

这次的美语三级跳就播送到这里。

Do find a compatible roommate. I rent apartment with my classmate once. I did cleaning . cooking ,washing and so on . She did nothing . I felt it is really infair for me to do all the work. So It's important for each roomate to pull their weight around the house.

I don't like mooches, especially hate living with them. They always eat all of others' things and pretend to be laid back. They get on ours' nerves.

After i read the paper,i remembered that i have rent an apartment sharing with a person who i did not know at all.firstly i thought i could get along well with him ,however i found he was a drama-queen,and he could not stand a little dirty on the floor.so at last he left the apartment.nowadays i live alone .
作者:lee

作者:lee
a few months ago,when i look for an apartment,i never thought about roommate things。i admit i not a outgoing person,but i really a laid-back guy
作者:Richard
If your roommate makes snoring during the night, it's too bad things.
作者:lisababy
It is more important to find a laid- back person or compatible roommate when u share rent with others. i don't like drama queen at all and also hate living with mooches. in last year i met a girl who doesn't pull her weight around the house and ate all of ur food. It is difficult to imagine that other people will like her. ..Fortunately, she was gone.
