实战口语情景对话:Giving Gifts 送礼物(1)
Todd: So true. Yeah, actually another thing I like to do is sometimes buy a really nice gift, and then for one year, and then maybe for the next year or two, don't buy the person a gift. For example, like maybe one year, I bought my landlady, who I'm very close to, I bought her an iPad. I'm like, "She's kind of older, and she never had an iPad." So I bought her an iPad, but then the next year, I didn't buy her something really expensive. I bought her like a box of chocolates or something, you know.

托德:没错。实际上我还有一件喜欢做的事情,有时我会买一件非常精致的礼物送人,然后一年或是接下来一两年都不会送那个人礼物。比如,我和房东太太的关系很好,有一年我送了她一部iPad。当时我想,“她年纪有点大,她没有iPad。”所以我送了她一部iPad,而接下来的一年我没有给她买昂贵的礼物。我送了她一盒巧克力之类的礼物。

Jen: In that case, I think it would create a problem, because once you give someone a really special thing, then the next year, they will expect something more, you know?

珍:我认为那样会带来麻烦,因为一旦你送了某人特别的礼物,那第二年他们会有更高的期待,你知道吗?

Todd: Yeah.

托德:对。

Jen: So like, it'll be really disappointing if they get something that's not very valuable than it was the year before.

珍:所以,如果他们收到的礼物没有去年的贵重,那他们会非常失望。

Todd: Yeah, it's kind of hard to climb back from that, isn't it?

托德:对,很难再回到之前的情况,对吧?

Jen: Yeah. Off an iPad? It would be bad.

珍:对。不是iPad?那很糟糕。

Todd: Though, she's a really nice woman. She definitely ... I don't think she thinks that way at all. She's actually better at giving me gifts. She's always giving me gifts. So, have you gotten any gifts recently for anybody? Are you already planning to get your gifts for the end of the year?

托德:不过她人非常好。她一定……我认为她完全不会那样想。实际上她送我的礼物更好。她经常送我礼物。你最近有送过礼物吗?你已经在为年底送礼物做准备了吗?

Jen: I actually just presented a pair of shoes for my friend, because it was her birthday. The thing is, we don't really celebrate New Year at this time of year. It's kind of different for us, because we celebrate the Lunar ...

珍:我刚刚送给我朋友一双鞋,作为她的生日礼物。其实我们不在这个时候庆祝新年。我们有些不一样,因为我们庆祝农历新年。

Todd: Ah right, which is in April, right?

托德:好,那是4月份,对吧?

Jen: Yes.

珍:对。

Todd: Okay, cool.

托德:好,不错。

Jen: So haven't really thought about like Christmas gifts or anything.

珍:所以我没有考虑圣诞节礼物之类的。

Todd: So in your country, in Nepal, like when do people give gifts? On what occasions?

托德:那在你的祖国尼泊尔,人们会在什么时候送礼物?或是在哪些场合送礼物?

Jen: During our New Year. We have a lot of festivals, so more than gifts, we just invite people and ... you know? Gather around and eat good food, that's it.

珍:在我们的新年期间。我们有很多庆典,不只是送礼物,我们还会邀请人们来家里。大家聚在一起,享受美食,就是这样。

Todd: Yeah, that's the best.

托德:嗯, 那是最棒的。

Jen: Yeah, I believe so too.

珍:对,我也是这么想的。
